    I swiped this from one of the KOS blogs...it's accurate and I am sure it will really please those on the far, far right... :D


    Below is a brief summary of the major accomplishments of the Obama Administration and this Congress.

    Major Legislation:

    Financial Reform Bill "represents the most profound restructuring of financial regulation since the Great Depression". Below is a brief outline of the bill:

    Creation of a new Consumer Financial Protection Bureau to be housed in the Fed.
    The new agency will have the power to write and enforce new rules governing mortgages and other financial products and Banks with more than $10 billion in assets would be subject to examination.
    The government will be given the power to seize and close down large failing firms.
    Shareholders and unsecured creditors would bear losses, and management would be removed. Nearly all derivatives deals will have to be conducted through central clearinghouses, so investors can be confident about settling their bets, and firms will have to raise money to cover any unexpected losses.
    Most derivatives would be traded on public exchanges, not in private side deals.
    Large Wall Street banks will have to spin off some of their trading of derivatives.
    The Fed, FDIC and Office the Comptroller of the Currency would each have jurisdiction over different types of banks, with the FDIC, for instance, regulating state banks while the OCC would be responsible for national ones.

    The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act is a sweeping piece of legislation that will allow 32 million Americans access to health care coverage. The key changes are outlined below (note these changes will take place between 2010

    Daily Kos as a reputable source?

    Kos appeals to the lowest intelligence of liberals. Looks like he found a happy follower.

    Well, since Mensa chapter info is on line, even you could find one. But then what would you do? Crash a meeting?
    When I was an active chess and Go tournament player, I was also active in Mensa.

    "Active in Mensa." [​IMG] Copying how I spelled "Mensa" does not constitute "being active."

    Copying? I have to say, your opinion of yourself is something to behold, but
    I'm not going to get down in the gutter with you. I haven't been an active Mensan for years.

    Those of us who are sentient are sure he's a natural-born U.S. citizen.

    Those of us who follow Orly Taitz...well...

    You could look at it either way. Sort of like the 9/11 conspiracy folks say "Why won't the government prove it wasn't a conspiracy" Or the birth certificate folks "Why won't obama prove he was a natural born citizen?"

    I would guess that many of those who believe the US government was involved in bringing down the Twin Towers also believe Obama was not born in the United States. The best thing to do with such "geniuses" is to...pay them no serious attention.

    Obama has proven once that he's a citizen, and the proof is still out there. It's the ridiculous right media outlets that keep demanding "proof" of his citizenship as if it wasn't even there. When questioned, they asked for the "long" birth certificate, whatever that is (it doesn't exist). He has a birth certificate from 1961 in Hawaii, 2 years after Hawaii was made a state. His mother is a proven citizen of Kansas, which is also proof of his citizenship. I don't get where people are even getting their ammunition, but I suspect Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck. :)

    As for his policies, well, the sheepherders will always have a hold on their sheep.

    EDIT: No, the people who were claiming Obama a liar about his citizenship are not your everyday nut jobs. Well, they are, but they're pretty famous right wing leaders.

    Why won't even famed attorney and Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz vouch for the Kenyan ever attending Harvard law school? :rolleyes: Why don't people from Occidental or Columbia remember Barry? Professors? :rolleyes:

    The only reasonable, rational explanation is that Oilbama has a lot to hide, and no one credible vouches for him to back up his claims. More than anything about his birth certificate, I want to see college and law school transcripts, verification he ever took (and passed) the bar, his medical records, scholarship records, and financial records.

    All recent, modern presidents and candidates (even VP candidates) have released such records. Why isn't Oilbama equal to a white man (or woman) in the eyes of liberals? They don't think he can pass the same level of scrutiny. Why are liberals so racist?

    Once again, you have nothing but personal attacks. No counter, no argument, just your attacks. You must be a detestable person to be so consumed with hate. Sad.

    What sort of counter do you believe birthers deserve, besides ridicule?

    It's all a massive conspiracy...that's what it is. The worst part is, all the people in this country such as yourself have let him become the president of the United States! Too bad, guess you'll have try harder next time.

    The lie about Obama being admitted to Occidental as Barry Soetoro, well, I'm surprised that still is being regurgitated by Republicans to this day.

    EDIT: I'm with the above statement. I don't really know what kind of response you can even give. If they're not giving the records, what's to be done? Poke? No. Prod? No. The administration has no interest in pursuing the matter. Just continue with the conspiracy in the air of your fellow theorists...

    Thank you for using the word "birther" to exhibit more of your hate and for proving what you are - a liar. I didn't question Oilbama's birth certificate, did I? So your word is your lie. Why are you so afraid that Oilbama isn't equal to a white man or woman by holding him to the same standard? That is racist of you, but then you never disappoint. You are all for his inability to produce any records of his past or present because just like you, Oilbama's got nuthin'.

    Why don't classmates or professors come forward to prove Oilbama's claims he ever attended Occidental, Columbia, or Harvard? Even ultra liberal Alan Dershowitz is silent. The silence is deafening. :rolleyes:

    Tell me, are one of those wing-nut libby birthers that thinks Sarah Palin didn't give birth to her son Trig?

    And you sheeple were (and are) willing to believe anything Oilbama says without a shred of proof. With such low standards I can see why you and hakr100 are so pleased with Oilbama's performance.

    Ridicule - hate for opposing views - from liberals is expected because you have nothing and you know it. Now that is worth ridicule! You could have voted for the Easter Bunny and been just as sure of your candidate! [​IMG]

    The lack of brain power and zombie cult following of people like you two is a sad indictment of what some people are willing to fall for. All because of your hate and racism you have that your guy has to be propped up with stories and no proof either of you have ever seen. All because of his skin color. Why are you liberals such racists?

    I think you're imagining whatever hate and racism you think I'm expelling...I'm in no way trying to be hateful or racist. I wouldn't push for this information out of any president I approve of, as I'm sure most Republicans wouldn't ridicule their candidate for the same thing if they thought he/she was doing a good job.

    I didn't know it required any extra "brain power" to repeat whatever you hear on the TV/Radio/Internet. The only original thought these days come from about a .001% of the population, and I'm pretty sure you weren't the first to come up with the idea of questioning those things.

    You're the one making the insults and mocking people. Perhaps you should learn that mockery isn't a form of argument.

    No, it's very clear. Why are liberals so racist that they think Oilbama cannot be held to the same standard as a white person? Answer that, please.


    Where did I claim that? Straw man fallacies is all you have, aren't they? You lied by charging me with something I didn't say once before about what name Oilbama used at Occidental.

    You should learn that lying says much more about you.
