    I didn't see anything remotely resembling traitorous or American hating behavior on behalf of the President. If you are looking for something truly Un-American look no further than the Patriot Act. Obama didn't come after your guns. He lowered middle class tax rates. Let me reiterate: you haven't lost a country and the only rights you've lost are the right to act like a privileged, white crone expecting everyone to show deference simply because of accidents of color, religion, social standing or location. An increase in taxes on the wealthy is anything but class warfare, since it only undoes the tax breaks that Bush gave, and nothing more. If you think letting people whose jobs and living were lost become victims a second time is the American way and not genuine class warfare, you are in dire need of a remedial ethics course, sense of charity and compassion and close examination of what a real life of poverty entails. Many new families are in that boat because of corporate malfeasance and previous administrations undoing key market regulations allowing a global economic collapse, and loathsome actions of bankers betting against homeowners so they could take over their homes during the same collapse. It's made even worse by the Tea Party crowd (corporate interests touting De-regulation as taking liberty back for the common man), since too many of that cult are under the impression that taxes are unpatriotic. The original Boston Tea Party was a protest against taxation without representation in London, not against taxation. The original authors of the constitution put the necessity of taxation in there in article 1, section 8. Previous generations fought for the rights of the people in this country to vote. They voted, and a majority voted in favor of eliminating hardships for others by reminding those who have done well that they didn't do well inside of a vacuum. If that offends you, maybe you need to examine your values and why you have allowed age to allow misanthropy to encroach on your psyche.

    Poverty, do not even go there. You Assume that I a white privileged, rich person. Typical. Most and I mean MOST people would have given up or withered what I and my family have been through or they would have expected the government to bail them out in every way. Try this one: i am disabled, have managed to work and hang on to our home after two spinal fusions and eight shoulder surgeries with little help from anyone. I am now looking at more fusion surgery and you need to be not so quick to judge anyone as my comments were judging no one, especially by skin color etc. Yet you are quick to pull the garbage you pull. Compassion, charity, morals? Ask the Vet who just left our home with a load of firewood and several bags of food from us food so he can keep his family warm and feed them. He has been out of work for three plus years. I caught him two days ago trying to steal firewood from us and instead of calling the cops, I gave him the option of telling his story or me calling the police. He asked me to follow to his place and I did, met his three kids and wife. He is one of many we and my friends have helped; We have little yet we are willing to share and help and so are all the conservatives we know who are BTW, not wealthy or privileged tidy, whitey folks as you assume we all are. Class, financial, race warfare has been pushed by this administration like no other and I suggest you look at Alinsky's ten rules as I bet you have them glued to your forehead. Your arrogance and morality are what needs an examination. I suggest you pull them out of your rectum You are the perfect example of what is wrong in this country right now.. BTW, do some research on the tax breaks for the middle class. they are a lie just like Obamacare, which is robbing how much from medicare. The Bush tax cuts are but one tiny piece of the puzzle but of course, it is still Bush's fault who is a POTUS I found plenty of fault with. Your gavatar looks like the fat loser Michael Moore. Is he your hero along with Alinsky, Ayers, Dorn, Soros, Gueverra and Huey Long?

    You have a right to free speech as everyone else, but if someone call you a racist, you wouldn't like that? You can call others 1. POS, and 2. Morons, but you want others to turn the other cheek when it's your turn to be call something other than a child of God. I'll just say this to you...I hope you feel better now that you've vented. Peace.

    Maybe when Obama is impeached. Thanks for your kind thoughts and peace through superior firepower. Turn the other cheek? I really do not give a damn what people call me and it will not be the least time.

    Funny? For you free thinkers and the one size fits all morality crowd think that anyone who does not agree with your jaded views is racist. This guy is a POS like the POTUS. Of course you all will brand me and others as racists, bigots, members of the KKK if we do not like the LIAR, traitor, American hating bastard that is sadly the POTUS While most of you may miss this, read this next line SLOWLY, OK? Ready: For me and many others it is NOT about skin color, period. If BHO was white, brown, whatever, I would dislike him every bit as much. It is what he has DONE (Benghazi anyone), circumvented our Constituion and I could go on and on. Oh yeah, of course we are 'low information voters' but the real LIV are the ones who voted for this liar just to ensure their entitlement way of life. Since I will be branded a racist by you morons who are consumed by the White Man's Burden and tthose who are victims of reverse plantation syndrome, enjoy your new taxes come 2013 and slavery truly comes from the left. I had been watching BHO going back 2003 and was alarmed back then. I hope he gets his sorry ass IMPEACHED and Chris Rock? A true racist.
