Senate bill would label single-parenthood as contributing factor to child abuse
are you serous ??? .... some of us single parents, are single only because we cannot find someone to be with ... as for Child abuse ..... that is so far off the mark ... that words have no way to nicely put it. i tell you some people are just way to dumb to be in office .... and that is putting it nicely ..... But i am asking something really important ... lets create some jobs so remember to check out and share our web site http:// mmdesigns2012.weebly.com/
The administration is not cutting veteran healthcare, they are not making headlines on "our: dime- they are honoring the bravest men and women who risked their lives everyday in a warzone.......no on care if you dislike the President. Tonight is about honoring our troops, not your opinions.
the last 3 years the Obamas have ignored and put our military in danger due to the Progressive Left Wing beliefs. Most of us veiw this as a re-election ploy. Its such a sham.... Us true Americans have always been behind our men and women who serve this great beautiful country.
And the very same troops who are going to trial for the burning of the koron.. .. I would not sit at the same table with him..let alone eat with them..all on our dine.and the blood of the troops... what a waste.
Brent Crow: You should expose liberal hypocrisy, too. A lot more of that right now. How about that whole transparency promise Obama made? NEver kept, ever. He never posted a bill to the white house website five days before signing it. Hmm, wonder why the media didn't notice that one. And, before you go on about republicans, while you go "Woohoo! Obama brought the soldiers home!" do your research, Bush, a republican, did.
@ Debbie Sykes Knowles: Our president is a person too. How rude is it to accuse him of back stabbing troops? Barack Obama wants nothing more than to make sure EVERY SINGLE AMERICAN SUCCEEDS IN THIS COUNTRY. Just like any other person who would be blessed enough to serve as president.
Sorry if that makes you uncomfortable.
On the Eve of NDAA to take affect-enjoy because we will have Global Martial Law enforced because of this BS with IRAN any day NOW. Coming sooner than you think to take our minds off of problems facing US with the Financial system and to cool the jets of OWS!
While I applaud the President for taking time out of his schedule of screwing the citizens of this country and honoring true American Heros, one dinner is not an honor. You want to honor them, don't cut their benefits
ok numerous other presidents went and honored troops how is Obama any different. I am so sick of hearing of his ass kissing just because election are around the corner. lets not forget how he started nor the lac of his abilities and dedication during said terms. anyone can look good from time to time but what we need a someone to do good the full four years
@ CJ Williamson you have a link to prove that.....not a right wing link but a main stream link. No you don't. Folks that hate as much as you do are scary. Can't you support the President as he honors the troops that serve and protect us just for one night.
First off the Vet's dont need a dinner held in their Honor at the White House when they arent even ALL invited. Why didnt they have a Stadium or the "OUR" White House lawn set up for all the Vet's to come and to be waited on ? Second when is the welcome Home Parade for OUR Hero's, Third where is all the Job's for our Veterans, and fourth, when is the kenyan going to step down,walk away and go back to what ever part of the world it came from? obummer doesnt HONOR OUR Men and Women, he isnt One of US! God Bless America and the Armed Forces of the United States!

ARTICLE II SUPER PAC AND THE WESTERN CENTER FOR JOURNALISM IS CO-SPONSORING WORLD NET DAILY’S (WND) LIVESTREAM OF MARICOPA COUNTIES COLD CASE POSSE INVESTIGATION INTO BARACK H. OBAMA
Phoenix, Ariz – Article II Super PAC is joining World Net Daily (WND) and the Western Center for Journalism to live stream the Maricopa County Cold Case Posse Investigative Report of Barack H. Obama initiated following a request from Tea Party members from Surprise, Arizona. The Maricopa County Cold Case Posse is made up of retired career law enforcement officials, legal professionals and skilled investigators.
The seven month long investigative report will be released to the public on March 1, 2012 and Vattelevision, Article II Super PAC’s communication team, will be working with WND to bring it “live” to the citizens throughout America and the world.
WND will be providing an Executive Summary of the report and to be certain to receive it we encourage people to go to WND and sign up.
Helen Tansey, Director of Article II Super PAC said “We are thrilled to be joining WND, the leading alternative news source who has stayed on top of this story and kept all of us readers informed since the investigation first launched.”
Tansey went onto say “no official source ever vetted Obama prior to the 2008 election, but just a mere political party. Well, that’s not good enough. The people deserve to know those who are seeking access to our ballots meet the qualifications laid out under Article II of the US Constitution, and for the first time an official law enforcement entity is doing what should have been done long ago.”
The time of the press conference on March 1, 2012 will be announced by WND when finalized.
The live-stream can be watched live online at WND, Western Center for Journalism and Article II Super PAC.

See the usual hateful right wing nuts are out in force here. Pissed off because he's fighting "The War on Terra" better than their goon chicken hawk neo-cons who declared it. Some real gas bags on this thread.
Wow, Republicans are an amazing bunch. If i ever voted for someone like Bush who borrowed money to wage wars to bring the country at the edge of financial disaster, I would have never even state my opinion again. You people have no shame...You want another Bush, go ahead, finish the job he started while entire world laugh their asses off to us...
President Obama has authorized millions of dollars to build a soccer field at Gitmo for the Talban prisoners and at the same time Obama is increasing the cost of health insurance, Tricare, from $440.00 a year to over $2,000.00 a year for military families. What is wrong with this picture?
It is great the White House is honoring Iraqi Vets, but all of them need to be honored. I would like to ask how in any good conscience you can apologize to Afhaghanistan (sp?) for our troops doing their job, burning trash as they were ordered to do? When detainees there wrote in their Korans, that is defilement, and by Islamic law must be burned. So what is the big deal? Now our troops have lost their lives because our President bows and scrapes to foreign leaders, putting our troops on the ground in more danger. These soldiers were following orders!! is anyone in DC thinking?
So little has been said to honor the guys that came from Iraq. I am glad they are taking the time to do it. Even in the Vietnam War, I never heard of any homecomings. This is very impressive coming from the White House! Thanks Mr. and Mrs. Obama! I only wish you all could stay in the White House FOREVER!!!
lmao we are one nation under god for liberty and justice . but separated by political hatred. yet we think we are all right and everyone is wrong . this is what starts civil wars . put down the harshness pull our heads outta are butts and come together and figure out whats best as one .......
Wish I could afford to host a dinner for my Family. New type of Foreclosure for some, and others just to be forced out because they have "no control".
Honorable Gov. Scott called his Election phrase "Let's get to Work". It should have been called. "New way to loose your Home". Because that what is happing to my Family, and me being fully disabled on a very limited income we have had to sacrifice more, and even made cut backs in services. Won't be long till we have to pay using a credit card. Course no one cares, especially in Local Government. 2/25/12 the local newspaper had his name plastered all over about "his" Short Fall on the State Budget, going to have "more" furlough days added on. "Days unpaid", Freeze their Wages, another raise- again in Health Care Insurance Premiums for State employees. And- (more cut backs). This is round two. Not to long ago it was reported in the News that because of his State Budget short fall that FL. Hurricane Fund going broke, that "every" Home Owner was going to be forced to pay higher Premiums to their Insurance Company's just to bail out the State of FL Hurricane Fund. Why should we the people be held accountable for something that's not our fault and out of our control. Last year he promised more House Insurance Company's to help all Citizens with high Premiums, hasn't happened. And we are forced to go with highly expensive Citizens because no other Company will Insure our Home. But on TV you hear other Company's say Insure your Car/Home with us get a big discount, not us because no Company will insure a 32yr. Old Home except State run Citizens. So wrong not to have any control. Fact: all you have to do is call any House Insurance Company ask them if they have had a "record number" of Home Owners canceling their Policy's because the cant afford Insurance. And Health Care he said he wanted more cuts to Medicare, I guess that's why all Disabled Citizens in FL. that have Medicare are now being robbed.
Some say discrimination against the disabled, to be forced to drop a supplement plan because the State had a hand in raising yearly rates. And they won't allow being out of the enrollment period to get an Advantage Plan being $0. out of pocket. So unfair. I found out that everyone who is disabled is held to higher cost for Health Insurance that if your not 62 Retired we are paying higher cost. To work hard for 30+ yrs. and this is the Thank You you get. And when we Retire those rates drop, Unfair. And to think what all in extra benefits, perks, extra's that the rich get. And for us to be Taxed and pay full price for everything while on only one limited source of money is wrong also. The State Gov. let the Supplement Health Insurance Company's that everyone uses as a second company to pay the 20% that Medicare doesn't pay. Many of those company's were allowed to raise (skyrocket) those premiums as much as $5000. 00 a year more. Also less options to choose from for Quality Healthcare for all on Medicare, I found this out from my Agent with my Supplement. And his direct affect around the State caused local Health Dept. Facilities to close some, and merge others causing financially strapped Citizens to drive farther for Health Care needs. Also he promised cheaper Property Taxes still waiting. FL. Automobile Insurance- simple to figure this. When anyone calls several Insurance Company's and ask: Why are we are paying higher Premiums in FL. There answer- "Because you live in FL". So again we are all being forced to higher cost because of one thing, Seniors being a Retirement State we are held responsible to higher cost again. He is getting quite a record & name. The secret they won't tell you, how many Family's have already lost their Jobs & Homes that his direct affect has caused. While we are going to be forced out of our home, not because of a mortgage, house is paid for. 9/9/11 News said Scott & GOP was not going to accept any Money to help create more jobs. But the State is raising fee's again and more cut backs to cause more Family's to suffer. In all my life I have never been affected so much by one man. To work hard for 30+ yrs. and this is the Thank You you get. Loose your Home.
I hope they stand up and call you the traitor in chief that you are. You have put our men and women in danger by apologizing for burning Korans that were already defiled. Two men are dead, do the Afgans apologize for that.
If you people really want to make sure the military is taken care of then you would want to tax the wealthy more to make sure that President Obama doesn't have to make cuts...You tell him to reduce the deficit, you tell him to make cuts, then you turn it on him. You are a predictable lot of fools and we aren't buying your bunk. You want 40% of our budget going to defense, then you will have to pay for it. This dinner is about honoring our troops, not for you to bash the dinner that is doing just that. If you want to honor them in your own town, in your own way then do so, but to bash a president who btw is the Commander is sick!!!!
Does anyone wonder why the White House posts anything, when all it does is invite the haters to spew? It doesn't matter what the topic is, there are people out there - poised at their keyboards - ready to display their negative vocabulary in order to - what? Change anyone's mind, or to get a rush from seeing their "Talent" on display in a public forum?
Mr. President...my daughter still works for the air force...my sister, dad and husband were all army...it's so nice to see service men and women finally appreciated....this wasn't the case when my family members gave...yes..even of their lives....you do this country great service...thank you!
What a bunch of crap, checking the block are we? The Obama administration’s proposed defense budget calls for military families and retirees to pay sharply more for their healthcare, while leaving unionized civilian defense workers’ benefits unfit.
That is the very hard decision for the president to do what is the bes thing for America. Many American troops died over there because of Koran, that is just only the book that written by human being, we can copy and publish thousand times, so should keep peace there.
Oh you honor those who fight your WARS, how about those who are for peace in the world? Peace don't come from wars, but from GOD. There is no God in Holy Wars or any kind of war. So honor your war killers of your brothern man kind.
Anyone who says he should honor them by not making them pay for a small part of their insurance should be voting to tax wealthy more to help pay the 40% that we currently spend on our budget for defense...You are all liars/hypocrites. You tell the president to cut, but then you don't want him to cut. All you want is to spend and not pay as you go. You are greedy fools who don't truly care about the troops, yet pretend you do. If you don't like it, vote for Universal Health Care for all, then you won't have to worry about the troops or anyone else for that matter not having health care.
@ Verne , like how everyones a right winged nut when they don't agree with you!!!! Well I'm not right winged, not sure what I am, but I HATE Obama as much as I disliked Bush!!!! But I'd take Bush over this fool ANY DAY!
Having dinner while her husband has sent drones all over middle east? Killing those innocent children just for resources. Its not yours give it back. Thinking your god to sit there an point a drone where ever you like.. RON PAUL we have more chance of world peace.
And yet this same administration will offer up our solders as sacrificial lambs to some nut jobs that can't handle the burning of trash in Afghanistan. Honor vets my foot, more like roasted vets to me.
Yes Mr. President and perhaps you can explain to them as you "honor" them why it is ok for you to burn the Holy Bible but apologize for burning the Quran. Also outline for them how things are "better" in Iraq so that Christians are now more persecuted than they were when they lived under Sadaam Hussein.
Having a dinner like this is very nice- these people deserved to be honored, as well as their families. I am sure a gesture like this means a lot to those who have served, because it shows how much the President and First Lady care.
Great. And then your going to decimate our military healthcare system and Tricare for Retirees so you can kiss the ass of your Federal Employee Union buddies who will not have cuts. President, yournot my President, your just a worthless feather merchant POS.
Risking kids' lives for political strangers while killing other strangers is SO honorable. How about looking after your own family and defend your country from within your borders? You can't get water out of your leaking boat while you are overboard. Honor peace and you won't need these depressing dinners.
Im not against having a dinner for our brave men and women but is it a dinner or a political reelection dinner, or fundraising event my bet is political and fundraising event, just looking at the past of previous dinners.
"The US has been waging unprovoked wars of aggression for over 100 years. The last time the US fought a war of self-defense was in 1812. It doesn't take advanced academic skills to figure out that enlisting in the US military is signing up for war crimes. If we're going to make excuses for US troops, then we have to make the same excuses for mafia enforcers, cartel hit-men, Taliban thugs, Bloods and Crips bangers, and everybody else who joins a violent and abusive gang."--- Daniel Coble
The following are 18 statistics that prove that the economy has not improved since Barack Obama became the president of the United States….
#1 Today there are 88 million working age Americans that are not employed and that are not looking for employment. That is an all-time record high.

Love that all the haters come here spewing and claim they love the troops....you don't or you wouldn't dare come on this thread that is about honoring them...You are all sick! Thank God under Obama's watch OBL was killed! He is for the troops you sickos aren't!
Perry, the GOP are the ones forcing pay cuts and insurance benefits...Remember, it's the GOP that keeps telling this president to cut. Defense makes up 40% of the budget or did you conveniently forget that one?
The same congress that brought us the Medicare part D pay out to the INS. & Pharma, now want to Privatize, VA healthcare. The GOP thinks it would be better to give the money needed for Veterans care to, the ceo's and shareholders of HMO's, Ins and Pharma companies.
The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the presidency. It will be easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to an electorate willing to have such a man for their president. The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails us. Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince. The republic can survive a Barack Obama. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools such as those who made him their president.
How about honor'n all the people who have to fight tooth &nail just to stay fed.......BRING OUR TROOPS HOME! SCREW the rest of the world, lets fix stuff @ home first, this war crap is killing us. CHRIST IS LORD
um...the price of Tricare was already up...my huby retired in August of last year from the AF; when he brought home the papers for the insurance, the price for him & me was twice what I was paying, coming to over $3000 a year! I can't afford that so we stayed with my BC...it's not just the vets, although they have it bad enough it's also those who are poor, old, women or just work for a liiving, Obama can only do so much with a Congress who has it in for the rest of us: they're rich, get a retirement pension that would pay 2 or 3 ordinary people and already don't pay for much that they get in perks...Bring our children home but we need to do something about our economic and energy situation...
Military budget is being cut because the republicans are refusing the tax the uber wealthy and corporations....Remember the job creators??? My God how dumb do you need to be to not connect the simple dots...Level of ignorance! Remarkable really...
If the fact that I disagree with you means I hate you (and am, therefore, a hater, wouldn't the reverse be true as. well? Wouldn't the fact that you disagree with me mean that you hate me and wouldn't that make you a hater, too? Just asking.
Connie, I come from a military family. They pay zero for healthcare and I have talked to them and they understand we don't have unlimited money. they told me it's a bargain to pay some. Most American families between themselves and their employers pay 8-15 k per year for family coverage. Again, we can't cut the budget without making these kinds of cuts...If people feel so enraged about this, they really should be willing to pay more in taxes, but alas God Forbid the top 1% pay more to help out.
The White House -- each president, has done wrongs. Yes.
Its known President Obama has enemies on the right, on the left, at home and abroad -- lots of attacks and lies and unfair criticism of him. I think , some of what he do is very wrong -- but over all much better than Bush.
George the way I understand it is that the first year it will go up some and in two to three years it will reach the amount I stated above. As of about a week ago the RR employees were still considering striking.
Yeah, Barbara, Obama can fit tens of thousands in the WH dining room. Do you people know how ridiculous you sound...If you care so much, host a gosh darn dinner for some local vets. I have done just that and they loved it!
jane it matters how you disagree. If you can discuss things then you are not a hater. If you simply post negative, hostile and items which may be partially true or completely untrue...then you are a hater. So you can answer that question.
Bee...under TRICARE and this new BUDGET MILITARY and Veterans will be paying up to 74 % of their Healthcare and in the Budget it will increase to 254 % over the next 5 years. However, Federal Employees will NOT see any increase.
In 2010 Rick Boucher (D) was voted out in that district. He was a congressman for at least 28 yrs I know this because I voted for him when I was 18. So it isn't fairing so well for Obama there. My sister who is a democrat hasn't voted in years and is probably going to vote this year to get Obama out of office.
God Bless President Obama the Commander and God Bless these men and women who have served nobly...IF you are displeased that the WH can't accommodate hosting all thousands upon thousands of troops, you should host a few in your own home to let them know you appreciate them..Stop turning this lovely dinner of honor into a hate filled thread.
sharynn please post the parts that indicate this...when I googled this earlier it said that EVERY YEAR the CBO comes out with proposals for the administration to consider. Those options are offered as "possibilities" and this was presented to the president. In ONE of those OPTIONS that would be the result. But I didn't see where the president proposed including that in his budget.
While the asshole is cutting our health care. Wow. Barry has made it abundantly clear that he hates the troops. Probably because they stand for America and not his perverted view of it. Well he can stick his political campaign dinner.
Meanwhile Sharynn, it's the top 1% that keeps telling this president to make cuts along with this Congress that is basically forcing him to do so..We are not stupid. Go learn all about the cuts before you blame the president!
No Bee, it is not. Sticking it to the rich is just as wrong. Just because someone is successful is no reason to penalize them as Der Fuhrer wants to do. The answer to the deficit problem is to stop the fffing spending!! Cut out all "entitlement" spending, all foreign aid, and all soccer fields for terrorists!
"And just as you fought for us, we're going to keep fighting for you -- for more jobs, for more security, for the opportunity to keep your families strong and America competitive in the 21st century."
And in a show of thanks -- the president wants to gradually triple their Tricare premiums!!!
GOD BLESS OUR TROOPS!!!
Bee grant he doesn't give a Crapola about our troops and IF you supported them then you would see this is just a photo op!
Apologizing for burning books that were used to send messages? WTF? our troops were killed over that and NOTHING from this POS'
Did you know that military retirees will now pay MORE for their healthcare? And did you know that the unions will not be affected? Why? Do you even care?
No slip George, his tactics and political stance would do the Nazi party proud. Surpress freedom, jack up taxes, exercise class warfare, divide the people to enhance you own political standing, spend, spend, spend. That is your president George.
What about a dinner for all those people who lost someone special...? Sons, fathers, cousins, and etc. They gave their life for their countries and their families have lost them. The end of a war dinner is nice and all, but I can't help but feel that this is all for show and that he's trying to make himself look better...
"Are we fighting a war on terror or aren't we? Was
it or was it not, started by Islamic people who
brought it to our shores on September 11, 2001
and have continually threatened to do so since?
Were people from all over the world, not brutally murdered
that day, in downtown Manhattan , across the Potomac from
the capitol of the USA and in a field in Pennsylvania ?
Did nearly three thousand men, women and children die a horrible, burning or crushing death that day, or didn't they?
Do you think I care about four U. S. Marines urinating on some dead Taliban insurgents?
And I'm supposed to care that a few Taliban were
claiming to be tortured by a justice system of a
nation they are fighting against in a brutal Insurgency.
I'll care about the Koran when the fanatics in the Middle
East, start caring about the Holy Bible, the mere belief
of which, is a crime punishable by beheading in Afghanistan .
I'll care when these thugs tell the world they are
sorry for hacking off Nick Berg's head, while Berg
screamed through his gurgling slashed throat.
I'll care when the cowardly so-called insurgents
in Afghanistan , come out and fight like men,
instead of disrespecting their own religion by
hiding in Mosques and behind women and children.
I'll care when the mindless zealots who blow
themselves up in search of Nirvana, care about the
innocent children within range of their suicide Bombs.
I'll care when the Canadian media stops pretending that
their freedom of Speech on stories, is more important than
the lives of the soldiers on the ground or their families waiting
at home, to hear about them when something happens.
In the meantime, when I hear a story about a
CANADIAN soldier roughing up an Insurgent
terrorist to obtain information, know this:
I don't care.
When I see a wounded terrorist get shot in the
head when he is told not to move because he
might be booby-trapped, you can take it to the bank:
I don't care. Shoot him again.
When I hear that a prisoner, who was issued a Koran and a prayer mat, and fed 'special' food, that is paid for by my tax dollars, is complaining that his holy book is being 'mishandled,' you can absolutely believe, in your heart of hearts:
I don't care.
And oh, by the way, I've noticed that sometimes
it's spelled 'Koran' and other times 'Quran.'
Well, Jimmy Crack Corn you guessed it.
I don't care!!
If you agree with this viewpoint, pass this on to
all your E-mail Friends. Sooner or later, it'll get to
the people responsible for this ridiculous behavior!
If you don't agree, then by all means hit the delete
button. Should you choose the latter, then please don't
complain when more atrocities committed by radical
Muslims happen here in our great Country! And may I add:
Some people spend an entire lifetime wondering, if
during their life on earth, they made a difference in
the world. But, the Soldiers don't have that problem.
I have another quote that I would like to
share AND...I hope you forward All this.
One last thought for the day:
Only five defining forces have ever offered to die for you:
1. Jesus Christ
2. The British Soldier.
3. The Canadian Soldier.
4. The US Soldier, and
5. The Australian Soldier
One died for your soul,
the other four, for you and your children's Freedom.
Well David, the Barry is anti-troop. Why not use this as an oppurtunity to point that out? People like George and Tim (who would make great brownshirts) may worship him, but if you believe the polls the majority of working Americans see him for what he really is.
Being Christian does nt rule out hating your enemies. Barry fits the definition of enemy. At least to those of us that love the American dream. He has certainly divided this county and set us at each other.
Olivia, tell that to the families that are going tonight that will enjoy this event, then if you feel so inclined, you can host your own dinner honoring those locally where you live that served. If each of us does their part to honor our vets then we would be truly putting our mouth where are lips are on this thread. Obama can't possibly host hundreds of thousands of troops in one dinner, but you already know that....Now run along and go do something useful!
Obama has absolutely nothing to do with dividing this country. The republican party take 100% of the credit for that by blocking everything , spreading hate, and pitching temper tantrums when they don't get their way. You people would hate your own mothers if she cast her vote for Obama.
Watch a GOP debate , hate for everyone but "severe " , white male wealthy consevatives run rampid. I saw a comment from a right wing minion it went like this: "you libs say we communist not true, if we were communuists all you libs would be dead" . Comments like that come courtesy of Newt, he preaches that crap at a lesser degree in every debate.
I bet they had to look long and hard to find 80 democrat military personnel and their families....because you know full well that anti American ass will not allow a republican soldier in the white house!
This is a really nice gesture from Obama and the White House. About 80 soldiers-wow. They risked their lives for our country so this dinner is not anything close to what they really deserve but still, its a nice event to be honored by the president. Go Obama!
I do know that when you read the true story that Kerry was a war hero and that the "swift boat" people were liars, loved reading how they hid when subpeoned and military records show they were never there
Tri-care was part of the package when any retiree reenlisted for the first time and were supposedly guaranteed upon retirement. Now it seems that anytime congress needs more cash it seems to come from the pockets of those who served the country most. What makes a congressman anymore deserving of his benefits than our retired. I have never seen any program that reduces the benefits of congressional service, nor have I seen anything requiring them to have first hand knowledge of what they pass judgment on!!
uhm georgeeeee,,, just exactly how has the country improved in 3 years??? you did say continue... do you mean continue to decline with crazy energy and food prices??? or did you mean continue to improve the chances of this being a socialist country?
Why? Just for show..Anyone with any sense knows it's all for show and to get votes.A big dinner just before you boot them out of a job? It's a shame the great injustices happening to our soldiers because of our goverment.
