Yahoo! News – Obama takes direct aim at anti-government rhetoric (Hat Tip: Nancy Jacques)

ANN ARBOR, Mich. – In a blunt caution to political friend and foe, President Barack Obama said Saturday that partisan rants and name-calling under the guise of legitimate discourse pose a serious danger to America’s democracy, and may incite “extreme elements” to violence.

A.C.L. mentioned some frightening charts published by The Chicago Tribune: A Tsunami of Red Ink. JWR Adds: I can remember back in 1977, writing fervent letters to my congressman, urging him to help keep the National Debt under $1 Trillion. Now the debt is 20 times that! BTW, that congressman who ignored my letters was Fortney “Pete” Stark, (Democrat) of California. He is still is Washington D.C. (a 37- year incumbent!) And Stark is still spending tax dollars at a rate that would make even a drunken sailor blush. (On second thought, I shouldn’t be so insulting to drunken sailors. At least they stop spending, when they run out of cash. Politicians don’t. They just create more, out of thin air!)

The Narcissist in Chief Joins the Cheater in Chief Club?

OOPS!

PRESIDENT OBAMA has been caught in a shocking cheating scandal after being caught in a Washington, DC Hotel with a former campaign aide, sources say.

And now, a hush-hush security video that shows everything could topple both Obama’s presidency and marriage to Michelle!

Vera Baker was a previous finance director for Zero, and is striking:

But, still: Dude. You’re married! How do you think this sits with your children?

At least we now know why Michelle has Zero’s balls. How do you think you’d fare after pissing this off?

BUT CAN IT BE TRUE?

You really do have to wonder about the validity of this story. After all, we do have so much contradictory evidence indicating that he’s a bit light in the loafers.

In what they hope will be a decisive move, the Unified Communist Party of Nepal (Maoist) has called for workers and villagers to converge on Kathmandu for a “final conflict” to win a new constitution. The Maoists are calling for a sustained mobilization, with the hope that an overwhelming showing can oust the prime minister and stay the hand of the Nepal army.

The UCPN (M) on April 27 called for an indefinite general strike starting May 2, should the current prime minister not step aside in the face of the May 1 mass mobilization.
