First, only $500 a month? Better check those figures again. And when the unemployment benefits paid for by the employers turn into SUBSIDIES (a grant by a government), workers do (tax payers) get upset over it.
Obama has lied for over 4 years as president, what makes anyone think he won't continue? We will soon be hearing lie after lie as he goes on another endless campaign trail, conveniently distancing himself once again from DC. He will peddle the lie on how the economy is growing, and that the economy must grow from the middle outward. Economies don't grow from the middle outward.

He will peddle the lie that invisible forces are keeping him from doing his job. Doing his job? This liar has never worked a day in his life. All he does and has done is game the system and use people to get what he wants. Those are the means to a desired end with collateral damage left in his wake. You know, Hitler also blamed invisible forces, and he too used up many people to fulfill his agenda.
Benghazi, Fast-n-Furious, IRS, NSA, and on, and on, and on. Obama and his entire administration are lawless, and Congress will do nothing about it because he is the first African-American president. This most assuredly is not Martin Luther King, Jr.'s dream.
Obama is a serial liar!! He has to be in order to fulfill his Marxist agenda. We must stop being afraid. It's booty kicking time.

For all those entertainers who are boycotting Florida, who cares? For the people who think boycotting Florida until they change their stand-your-ground law is somehow noble, you are working from a state of pure emotionalism. You are just pawns being used by the Obama Administration. Will
you also be boycotting all the other states with stand-your-ground laws? So many bad things happen when the mob is in an emotional frenzy. Reminds me of sharks feeding.
Instead, why don't you channel that emotional energy to places like Chicago or DC and do some good works there? Many people are being killed daily in Chicago, and no 'celebrities' are boycotting that place.
"The Florida version of the law states that "a person who is not engaged
in an unlawful activity and who is attacked in any other place where he
or she has a right to be has no duty to retreat and has the right to
stand his or her ground and meet force with force, including deadly
force if he or she reasonably believes it is necessary to do so to
prevent death or great bodily harm to himself or herself or another or
to prevent the commission of a forcible felony."" http://www.cnn.com/2013/07/22/politics/stand-your-ground/index.html

22nd – The White House appoints only two IRS positions, the
commissioner and the IRS chief counsel, currently William Wilkins. In
2008, Wilkins defended the tax-exempt status of Jeremiah Wright’s church
and did so pro bono. What a guy, no
wonder O gave him the IRS gig! So check out this timeline from the IG
report in the Daily Caller today: 1) April 23, 2012 - Wilkins meets with
O in the WH. Arrived 3:54pm, departed over 7 hours later. 2) April 24,
2012 – IRS Commissioner Shulman meets with O. 3) April 25, 2012 –
Wilkins sends IRS official Lois Lerner & former IRS lawyer Carter
Hull “additional comments on the draft guidance” for accepting or
denying Tea Party applications. So we have Lerner taking the Fifth,
Cincy agent Liz Hofacre & Carter Hull testifying that denials of DC
involvement are pure BS and now this. Forget walks like a duck, quacks
like a duck, this has been a duck since day one. And this big fat duck
is starting to point directly to O! The media’s reaction? Oh goody goody
gumdrops, Kate had a boy!!! P
Do you love the idea of universal background checks? Then you may have ideas that are much in common with every dictator that has come down the pike from the 20th century on.
Rick Averill writes: "The goals of the left have always been shrouded in deception and misrepresentation. Hide your true agenda behind a deceitful argument and then, after grabbing power, do what you really meant to do all along. That is what Hitler, Lenin, Mao, Castro and Obama have all done. By controlling the terms of the discussion, the left controls the argument. Actual Assault Rifles are not sold to the general public. The left invented the term "assault-style rifles" and the next thing you know assault-style rifles become assault rifles."
Wholly moly what a fairy tale this thing is. What happened in Michigan is an exception when it comes to firearm registration being used as a crime-fighting tool. I'll go as far as to say it was a fluke.
Bloomberg headline this morning: DRUG USERS TURN DEATH DEALERS AS METHADONE FROM BAIN HITS STREET!
The headline at first glance made no sense - Bain Capital is somehow being blamed for methadone hitting the streets and killing people. Wow. Really?
In 2010 a woman left the drug addiction treatment center in Indiana with her methadone take-home kit after receiving her in-clinic methadone dose, gave some of the take-home methadone to her friend (which was and is illegal), who then ingested it and died. The friend had other drugs in her system, so the methadone being added to the mix killed her. Reading further into the article we find the writer (Sydney P. Freedberg) weaving a tale of woe about these poorly maintained and under-staffed for-profit CRC Health Group drug treatment clinics and how they are owned by Bain Capital. Wait a minute. What does that have to do with this woman committing a crime?
As I continued to read the article it became very apparent to me that the writer
was bashing capitalism and for-profit treatment centers in general.
For some reason he even felt compelled to bring up Mitt Romney and his
earnings. Bain Capital and Mr. Romney have little to do with how these
clinics are operated. CRC Health Group is the hands-on company. Nor
does Mr. Romney hold any position in government. He can make no policies or regulations.
When the state and local governments could no longer afford to help fund the non-profit treatment centers and the centers continued
to lose money and became less effective, the state and local governments shut off the
money tap. Hence, the centers were
privatized. These now private clinics are HIGHLY regulated by the local, state, and federal
governments. If something is falling through the cracks, look no further than those entities.
This article is just another example of bashing private business and the profit motive.
