“John, basically, made it very clear that if he were an American he would vote for Reagan because he was really sour on (Democrat) Jimmy Carter.
“He’d met Reagan back, I think, in the 70s at some sporting event… He did express support for Reagan, which shocked me.
“I also saw John embark in some really brutal arguments with my uncle, who’s an old-time communist…”

Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Libya, Yemen, and now Somalia?
“Single parents turn to the government for assistance in dozens of ways. Pearlstein cites economist Benjamin Scafidi, who has offered a rough calculation of how much family breakdown costs American taxpayers annually.Scafidi considered TANF (Temporary Assistance to Needy Families), Food Stamps, housing assistance, Medicaid, S-Chip, child welfare services, justice system costs, WIC, LIHEAP (Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program), Head Start, school breakfast and lunch programs, and foregone tax receipts. The annual bill to taxpayers: $112 billion.
But Scafidi was being conservative, Pearlstein argues. He didn’t include the Earned Income Tax Credit, the costs to schools that accrue from additional discipline problems, the special education costs that increase in lock step with chaotic family environments, and the added burdens on Medicare and Medicaid that result from more unmarried older Americans.”

not content with solely attacking Boeing, Obama goes after private aircraft too.
then he hops onboard Air Force One to appear at two fund-raisers
This “subsidy” is simply a 5 year depreciation schedule instead of 7 years, and was included in the “Stimulus” bill.
It looks like a good way to send even more people to the unemployment line

This is from an interview with the San Francisco Chronicle in Jan of ’08, yet this quote did not appear in the resulting newspaper article. Three days before the election this vid hit the net, too little, too late. So far, his policies in office have backed up his words here.

Obama’s EPA decreed that CO2 was a pollutant, even though CO2 is not included in the Clean Air Act. What will the United Mine Workers and other unions in the energy sector do while they collect unemployment?

A business expense is not a subsidy, nor is it a tax break.
another area that is much worse than you think
On the day the White House released Obama’s Long Form Certificate of Live Birth, almost immediately stories hit the net claiming that the document was not a simple scan but was assembled on a computer. It was created on a Mac, no less. I attempted to make a (clumsy) screen movie showing different objects, layers, and even the computer used. I can verify everything in the following Tubes and have done most of it, but there’s no point in watching mine, this guy’s stuff is better.
I have contributed my two cents in this thread.
Forgeries rarely do.
