3. Maybe you missed ...

President Obama's Jobs Plan that contained significant moneys to "rebuild the community in this country in which President Obama was a community organizer."

The priority problem is not President Obama's; but rather the gop-controlled House. Work for a Democratically controlled House and the priorities will shift to home.

(Yeah, I caught the sly, but misplaced, President Obama bash)

6. Is this a bona fide link?

http://www.whitehouse.gov/sites/default/files/jobs_act.pdf

How about this:

http://www.npr.org/2012/10/08/162400400/obamas-jobs-plan-focuses-on-federal-investment

I'm surprised you missed it ... I mean it only was in the news every day and discussed here for months, as it was happening.

7. Where's the part where he is making an effort to re-build the community in which he was a

 

community organizer?

Yea, I did miss that.

I'll bet that those in that community have also missed that as well.

Those that still live there can pay taxes to help build Iraq (and pay for mercenaries), but somehow they don't seem to have re-building in their community.

Did you miss that part as well?

9. So there is no part where he is making an effort to re-build the community in which he was a

 

community organizer?

No text that can be quoted to support that.

Got it.

Thanks.

10. You're letting your a$$ show ...

2. PUTTING WORKERS BACK ON THE JOB WHILE REBUILDING AND MODERNIZING AMERICA
• A “Returning Heroes” hiring tax credit for veterans: This provides tax credits from $5,600 to
$9,600 to encourage the hiring of unemployed veterans.
• Preventing up to 280,000 teacher layoffs, while keeping cops and firefighters on the job.
• Modernizing at least 35,000 public schools across the country, supporting new science labs, Internetready
classrooms and renovations at schools across the country, in rural and urban areas.
• Immediate investments in infrastructure and a bipartisan National Infrastructure Bank,
modernizing our roads, rail, airports and waterways while putting hundreds of thousands of workers
back on the job.
• A New “Project Rebuild”, which will put people to work rehabilitating homes, businesses and
communities, leveraging private capital and scaling land banks and other public-private
collaborations.


No go troll, elsewhere ... I'm done.

12. Four years later, the community in which Obama was a community organizer looks much the same.

 

Nothing in which you posted, not your excerpt nor your name-calling, negates the fact that there is nothing to indicate that funds will be directed towards rebuilding the community in which Obama was a community organizer.

Here's a hint for you. When you have to resort to name calling instead of posting facts, you've lost.

13. Here's another hint ...

Before engaging in political discussions ... LEARN HOW THE GOVERNMENT WORKS! Taking an 8th Grade Civics lesson would have prevented you from writing the above.

14. Lost again, eh. Since you can't post facts showing that funds will be used to re-build the community

 

in which Obama was a community organizer, you are left with posting insults.

Since you cannot post any such information or links to where such information can actually be found, that's enough. Your juvenile insults are meaningless.

16. You know what?

You're right my exchange with you has been, uncharacteristically, juvenile.

Though I have not "lost" anything, except for my patience with fellow Democrats that constantly go off half-cocked, spouting misinformation and uninformed opinion and refuse to accept correcting information.

I apology for the insults.

4. When I lived in Chile, there was a bridge spanning a canyon in the Atacama desert

that you had to cross to get to another village. It was designed by Eiffel and built early in the last century. Otherwise you had to climb down the canyon and then up. If you had a truck or car you had to use the bridge. Well, the bridge had fallen into disrepair over the years and the government claimed it didn't have the money to fix it, but they did put a sign up that said cross at your own risk. When my dad and I had to cross it, he would make me walk across first and then he would carefully drive his truck over.

I guess we will have to start doing this here in the USA. I hope at least the govt. puts up warning signs, but so far I haven't seen any. Welcome to third world America.
