Are We FINALLY Seeing Obama's Revenge?

In just over a week after the election where GOP obstructionists leveraged some lies, half truths, and Big Money to "win" an election Dems failed to show up for... has Obama FINALLY decided he really can't try to compromise any more? At least in the past 6 years any bill crossing his desk had some Democratic input... now with the GOP in control of both houses of Congress... will there be any such input?

First was his finally coming out for Net Neutrality, then with the modifications of immigration law enforcement. Two sticks in the eye of the GOP.

Hunger Games holds a metaphor for contemporary politics

The confluence between President Snow a character in the Hunger Games and Obama is strangely creepy! In fact, Snow is a contemporary signifier for everyone holding public office in our system of rot currently. The rot extends into every segment of cultural identity to include the medical, social, corporate, psychological, religious, media, and the only truth one can ascertain any longer is found only from marginal sources like Chris Hedges and his ilk.

"HOUSE FILES CHALLENGE OVER THE CHANGES TO THE AFFORDABLE CARE ACT"

"Today, we filed our complaint United States House of Representatives v. Burwell(Case 1:14-cv-01967), in the United States District Court for the District of Columbia. The House’s complaint contains eight counts concerning constitutional and statutory violations of law related to the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA).

Obama Assures The Latinization of America

History will show that America's destiny was directed by having Mexico on its southern border. Note that we don't have immigration issues with Canada. America may have won the original war with Mexico in the 1800's, but Mexico will get its revenge in the end. This didn't happen overnight as this article from 1996 shows.

I thought it was a good speech.

Thanks congress. 1.5 trillion for a useless thing that doesn't work and wasn't needed.

Congess & lobbiests & thieves, oh my! CLTs are easily seen and easily found, but fox can't find them.

Webb/Warren 2016

Zephyr Teachout in the Cabinet. I almost said for Education Sec, then I realized why, damn Freud. She could have any cabinet position.

GOB Thought Policy

Yes, the GOB, that defender of freedom tells you what to dream. To help you realize the accepted dream, Gov Walker is offering his state GOP's assistance.

scott's typical dream or STD, that GOP seeks to spread nationwide.

"Emperor Obama" wins the coveted "Upside-Down Pinnochio"

"The president has certainly been consistent on this issue[executive action on immigration]—until he saw that the path through Congress was blocked.

Lowest Turnout since 1942

Where were the gen-xers and millenials? The silents turned out in droves while the occupiers stayed home thus leading to the GOP landslide. It smacks of the younger generations being battered into passivity.

Moyers, Lessig, Teachout

Obama is the Middling Man. Just give him two strong views from left and right he'll get right in between them!

This seems to be the Obama playbook. And while it has served him well in some areas, in others it has clearly led him astray.

Why Senate Republicans Shouldn't Buy New Curtains

The MSM has been describing this year's election as a "tsunami" or a "tidal wave" or a "shellacing" but that's just ratings hyperbole. Democrats are notoriously absent during midterms and of the thirty six Senate seats up for re-election in 2014 twenty one were Democratic and only fifteen Republican and the map favored red.
