Pesident Obama signs farm bill that trims food stamps

President Barack Obama on Friday signed into law an agriculture spending bill that will spread benefits to farmers in every region of the country, while trimming the food stamp program that inspired a two-year battle over the legislation.

As he penned his name on the five year measure at Michigan State University, Obama said the wide-ranging bill "multitasks" by helping boost jobs, innovation, research and conservation. "It's like a Swiss Army knife," he joked.

But not everyone is happy with the legislation and Obama acknowledged its passage was "a very challenging piece of business."

The bill expands federal crop insurance and ends direct government payments that go to farmers whether they produce anything or not. But the bulk of its nearly $100 billion per year cost is for the food stamp program that aids 1 in 7 Americans.

The bill finally passed with support from Democratic and Republican lawmakers from farming states, but the bipartisan spirit didn't extend to the signing ceremony where Obama was flanked by farm equipment, hay bales and Democratic lawmakers. White House press secretary Jay Carney said several Republicans were invited, but all declined to attend.

Conservatives remain unhappy with the bill and its generous new subsidies for interests ranging from Southern peanut growers and Midwest corn farmers to the Northeast maple syrup industry.

They also wanted much larger cuts to food stamps than the $800 million Congress finally approved in a compromise. Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack told reporters he did not expect the cut of about 1 percent of the food stamp budget to have a significant impact on recipients.

Obama promised in his State of the Union address last week to make 2014 a year of action, using his presidential powers in addition to pushing a Congress that usually is reluctant to go along with his ideas. In that spirit, he's coupling the signing of the farm bill with a new administration initiative called "Made in Rural America" to connect rural businesses with federal resources that can help sell their products and services abroad.

Obama's trip was a reward for Sen. Debbie Stabenow, D-Mich., who as chairwoman of the Senate Agriculture Committee helped broker the hard-fought farm bill compromise after years of setbacks. Michigan State, a leading agricultural research school, is Stabenow's alma mater.

Obama also squeezed into his three-hour visit to Michigan a lunch with Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan. Duggan took office last month as the city is going through the largest municipal bankruptcy in U.S. history.

The Democratic National Committee (DNC) again defended President Obama from potential impeachment in a fundraising email Friday.

The DNC’s second impeachment-related fundraising email in recent weeks suggests that the main thrust of the party’s 2014 U.S. House campaigns is to prevent Obama from meeting the fate of Andrew Johnson and Bill Clinton.

“It’s happening again…,” the email stated, featuring a red-and-black image of Republican Rep. Paul Ryan.

Konfuzius,

Once again you have brought up the name of Hitler in your post. You must have some sort of unhealthy fixation on the devil of the 20th century.

I thought in your previous posts that you thought that the majority of Americans are so intelligent because they voted for the misfit in the White House. Now you say Americans learned nothing.

Make up, whatever, mind you have left.

Winston Churchill answers Obama

One of the first acts of Barack Obama's presidency was to send back to Britain a powerful Oval Office sculpture of Winston Churchill, looking beetle-browed and determined, the way Churchill really looked when he was defying Hitler.

At the time, Obama's gesture seemed another little eccentric footnote to this extremist administration. After all, Obama's Dreams from My Father celebrates his biological father who abandoned him as a baby, to return to Kenya after the terrorist Mau Mau Jono Kenyatta came to power. Obama Sr. soon fell out with Kenyatta, was purged from the regime, and managed to have two consecutive drunk driving accidents, the second of which killed him.

In the real post-colonial world, Obama's Leninist ideology is completely passé. India's Prime Minister Singh is a free market economist. Over there, English is still the language of politics and commerce, and free market policies have created a sustained economic boom. China is no longer rigidly Marxist either, and it is booming using free market principles. The real talents of individuals in India and China now have a greater chance to flourish. In Russia, Putin has introduced a 14% flat tax, and is boosting traditional morality. Only Obama still harbors that old post-colonial rage against white imperialists, which is why he can't tell the difference between murderous terror gangs and democratic revolutions. Iran is ruled by a corrupt and evil priesthood, opposed by hundreds of thousand of young people who look to the civilized world for hope. After Obama's Geneva Surrender we know that he honestly can't tell the difference between reactionary murder regimes and modern peoples.

For civilized people Al Qaeda is a mass child-murdering criminal gang, a horrific throwback to a dark and bloody past. Photos of AQ's slaughtering innocent children, women old people in the Syrian Christian village of Maloula have gone viral all over the web. The mall massacres in Nairobi, Kenya showed a primitive murder gang head-chopping black and white Africans alike, and those pictures were flashed around the world as well. Normal human beings of all faiths were terribly shocked, including many civilized Muslims.

But for Obama Al Qaeda is just like the Mau Mau terror group, who beat the British in Kenya by slaughtering white farm families in acts of horrific terror.

Obama truly is not like us; his beliefs are utterly alien to our political tradition.

That is why this administration violates all the rules. It is not an accident. It is simply who they are.

The act of sending the bust of Churchill back to Britain signaled Obama's hatred for the Anglo-American political tradition, including the US Constitution. So far only one prominent liberal has expressed open outrage -- Nat Hentoff, the civil liberties advocate who used to write for the Village Voice.

You and your paladins make America a very bad looking nation. Vietnam and "W" Bush in Iraq are bad example for a great power nation with a hegemonic demand based on money.
I think Great President Barack Obama is doing an outstanding job. I sleep good. I am happy. I feel secure.

FEGELEIN, TOM MASSIE, RAYPRAY, COPWATCH:

You guys seem to think that Obama was created in 2008. He wasn't.

His Presidency was born in the 1980's with the Reagan-Bush Administrations. That's when the 'seeds of socialism' were being planted in America.

You see: During the 80’s GOD and RELIGION took center stage in America.
(ie. Reagan proclaimed 1983 the “Year Of The Bible”.)

Conservatives, then; instead of stemming the tide of millions of illegal immigrants flooding into America; instead became obsessed with anti abortion and putting GOD into government. I am be reasonably sure that FEGELEIN, TOM, RAYPRAY AND COPWATCH were among the ranks who supported Reagan and his GOD oriented society.

Now we have millions of car washers and lawn cutters; along with their wives and babies; who cannot support themselves on the miserable peasant wages we pay them.
THIS LED TO SOCIALISM; subsidies for food, health, housing and education.

So you see: The foundation for socialism was laid almost 30 years ago when we allowed millions of poor to enter America and live on low paying jobs.

All because while this INVASION was going on; our good Conservative friends could talk about nothing else but SEX IN THE OVAL OFFICE and Monica's semen stained dress.

So don't blame Obama for the entitlement landscape taking shape in America. Obama is only taking advantage of the present situation created by YOU in the past.
YOU guys FEGELEIN, TOM, REAYPRAY AND COPWATCH. You’re the ones who CREATED Socialism by your crummy choice of past priorities; by trading in foreign policy for social conservatism; which allowed the Liberals to just walk in later and steal the Government.

Prognosis for the future (2016)? Some Bible-thumping GOP Conservative Evangelist will start campaigning from that silly “Book of Revelation”; and as a result you will be looking at Hillary Clinton and her Liberals for eight more years.

Then you can begin talking about impeachment proceedings for HER; as you guys continue to swirl; round and round; locked in the eddy currents of religious Conservatism; and wondering “What Ever Happened To Our Great Nation”.

Now you KNOW what happened to it; and why it happened.

Republicans Vote Against Their Own Survival as the Top 14 Child Poverty States Are Red!

"The concept of self-destruction is unique to human beings, and for most people it is incomprehensible why, or how, a person could rationalize deliberately causing themselves harm unless they were seriously demented. It is true that some people find themselves in seemingly hopeless situations and reason that self-destruction is their only option to end what they feel is unremitting distress, but they likely did not create the conditions that are the basis of their suffering. It is highly probable that if semi-intelligent human beings were aware of why they were suffering, they would take the necessary steps to separate themselves from the source of their distress; unless they support Republicans in Congress and state legislatures. Few would argue that Republicans do not exist to create insufferable conditions for most Americans, but over the past three years (at least) they have openly targeted their base with the same evil intent as they have the rest of the population. Still, Republicans have undying support from the people most likely suffering from their injurious policies".

"The latest indication and announcement that Republicans hate their base as much as the rest of the population came on Sunday when evangelical Rick Santorum complained that “sicker, older” Americans are signing up and getting healthcare insurance through the Affordable Care Act. Santorum, who came in second in the 2012 Republican presidential race, thinks it is wrong for the GOP’s most dependable voting bloc, older and whiter Americans, to have access to healthcare insurance. Now that Republicans have openly attacked women, Latinos, the poor, Veterans, and now “older Americans,” it is fair to say there is no segment of the population they do not hold in contempt. What is curious is why their base continues supporting them when Republicans admit their entire agenda includes creating pain and suffering for the people keeping them in office"?

"The first instinct is to say the GOP base is just voting against their own self-interests, and that is certainly true. But after three years of Republicans campaigning, and acting, on taking food, jobs, healthcare, and pensions from their base it is more accurate to say they are voting against their own survival; particularly in reliably Republican southern states. It is tempting to wish southern state Republicans well and let them wither and die in poverty, hunger, and ill-health, but their “champions on the right” are creating suffering for seniors, Veterans, the poor, and children nation-wide. In a chart floating around the Internet, the rankings for states with the highest percentage of children living far below the poverty line reveal what many Americans already know; the highest child poverty rates are in southern states".

1Paradiselost writes:

continued....

"The top fourteen states with the highest percentage of children living in dire poverty are deeply-held red states and far exceed the humiliating national child poverty rate of nearly 24%. One might understand the racial motivation of self-destructive Republicans willing to go hungry to oppose the African American man in the White House, but their support is creating hunger for their own children, grandchildren, mothers, and fathers and does not affect President Obama one iota. Further, the conservative sycophants support right to work for lower wages, oppose Medicaid expansion, advocate deeper cuts to nutrition assistance, and Social Security and Medicare cuts that affect the entire nation as well as the base. In fact, the recent food stamp cuts that take 20 meals a month from hungry seniors, children, working families, and Veterans are insufficient for Republicans and their base supports substantially deeper cuts to create more hunger for nearly 4 million Americans; mostly children, families, and seniors in Republican states.

It is also noteworthy that red southern states are overwhelmingly Christian and by now, the faithful certainly understand that Jesus is not furnishing food or healthcare for vulnerable children and senior citizens to counter Republican cuts. In fact, in spite of $82.5 billion in taxpayer-furnished welfare, the nation’s churches that do attempt to provide food assistance for the poor are struggling primarily because their poverty-level adherents can hardly afford food, adequate housing, or healthcare, much less the requisite 10% tithe for admittance to glory. To make matters worse, the faithful support Republicans because they fight for evangelicals’ religious freedom to persecute gays and control women despite their theocratic efforts will not provide one meal or doctor visit for millions of southern Republicans living in poverty.

Americans understand the GOP base is angry and hates President Obama because he is Black, but they cannot fathom the self-destructive nature driving them to create pain and suffering for themselves, their children, and their family members; or tens-of-millions of Americans they do not know. One cannot blame Republicans in Congress and state legislatures because their predilection has always been taking everything from the people, including their faithful supporters, but after three years of publicly singling out their base one would think a sense of survival would overrule their hatred for this President".

1Paradiselost writes:

continued...

"It is entirely possible the GOP base never hear Republicans like Santorum say Americans over 50 do not deserve healthcare, or House Republicans say children and seniors living in poverty do not deserve food, and if that is the case then their self-destructive nature might be excused. However, they are well aware their children, parents, and poor family members are going hungry because Republicans cut 20 meals a month from their food stamp allowance and crave eliminating nutrition assistance altogether, and they know the GOP sequester cut funding for their shut-in parents and disabled family members dependent on Meals on Wheels to survive. The GOP base in southern states also know they are working for poverty wages because their Republican champions passed “right to work” for less laws and rejected Medicaid expansion to keep those underpaid Republican voters sick and dying. They also have to know that their elderly parents are barely surviving on Social Security and Medicare that Republicans have made no secret is destined for major cuts, but by dog, they keep voting for Republicans to teach other Americans they hate the idea of an African American President who continues fighting for their interests.

The blame for the state of this country lies squarely on Republican voters so steeped in racial animus that they have become a danger to themselves, their own children, and the rest of the population. It is tempting to tell the Republican base, particularly in the South, that if they hate food stamps; stop using them and starve, and if they hate the idea of Medicaid and Medicare; then get sick and die, and if they want to work for dirt wages; then feel free to wallow in poverty. The problem is that they have heard it for three straight years from their Republican politicians and they keep voting for them anyway. Despite their penchant for self-destruction and danger they pose to their children, parents, and other struggling Americans’ survival, President Obama, Democrats, and real American citizens are all that stand between their survival and certain demise at the hands of Republicans they support".

I cannot emphasize enough that the problem with the GOP is the Religious Right.

JON HUNTSMAN would have been a much better candidate to challenge Obama; but the Evangelists would have NONE of him.

Because: Huntsman said that "the GOP should not be seen as the anti-science party, and Evolution is fact".

Because of this view by Huntsman; the GOP dumped him and went with the CREATIONIST types; Mccain, Romney; ones who have faith in that nutty Creationist Museum in Kentucky.

As a result the elections of 08 and 12 were a shoe-in for the Liberals.

It is really too bad. We have a whole political party; the GOP; which because they focus on the NEXT world; have become blind to the realities of THIS world; and because of this; sees everyone else as "evil"; and therefore refuses to compromise.

It's a good thing that up until the time of Ronald Reagan religion never really got in the WAY of government.

If it did; we would probably have no "Pure Food and Drug Administration"; no Medicare and no Social Security; as the GOP would be waiting for Jesus Christ to come through the clouds and fix everything; just as it is doing today.

Get rid of the Palins, Bachmans, Aikens, Brouns and Mourdocks; stop trying to legislate from the Bible; and put SANE Republicans like Jon Huntsman back in control of the party.

The threatening action does not have to take place but if the person who is threatened feels that they are in jeopardy of possible harm, that alone IS enough for a law suit for financial restitution.

Be careful, what you post, even in a moment of anger, could do significant financial harm to you.

When you get the phone call and your a 1,300 miles away you find out how helpless you really are. Your alone with only your thoughts and saying to yourself.. if I only had... over and over again.

Hopefully after this event we as bloggers work harder to have some decorum.

1P,

There could be no more sorrow I could feel for a person than for one who loses a child.

Maybe, just maybe, we could all learn from this and do as you suggest.

"Most Americans have heard of Karl Marx and his plan for overthrowing democratic governments through armed revolts of the workers."

By the level of the American school education system I am not sure whether this is right.
The proof is this:
"... and his plan for overthrowing democratic governments through armed revolts of the workers."

Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels are the founder of the communism. They called capitalism the "dictatorship of the bourgeoisie,"... In collaboration with Engels, Marx also set about writing a book which is often seen as his best treatment of the concept of historical materialism. I guess you never read AND IF ... YOU WIKK NEVER UNDERSTAND.
However all this has nothing to do with America and GREAT President Barack Obama. He has nothing to do with Hitler and nothing to do with Marx. He is a very good leader for the modern America.

1P,
A word of advice......Whether it is a threat or just bullying, you could have problems on your hand which none of us would want. After all this is America and some lawyers could make a mountain out of a molehill.

Please, everyone, agree or disagree, but know that others are reading these blogs.

BTW the blogger with the MOST Hitler talk is not any of us.

SS General Fegelein is not any of us? Who is he?

Tom, Thanks for the advice. It's unfortunate that some individuals to prove a point have to dig up my deceased daughter. If your a father I know you understand.

Unfortunately your wish will be not reality. This old and neo Nazis have no respect for other people. The SS was the most criminal and terrible organization ever. If somebody choose the blogger name SS General Fegelein and put the first two first names as identity on this blog tells you something. All his blogs use Nazi language and wording. Horrifyingly it seems to me he has on top a fan club of same thinking cohorts...
I didn't understand that he insulted with his contemptuous blog your daughter. Now I can understand your reaction. But take it in this way. I feel just very sorry about this brain washed people like SS General Fegelein. They are yesterday people believing just on his own view of history and unteachable.
The insult of your daughter fits his character as SS General Fegelein fellow-traveler.

He was banned as GENIUS by all the direct insults about and over me. Now he used this blog for his Nazi propaganda.

It is really a sad commentary on us if we have reached the point that if someone attacks our blog name or opinion we feel that they are attacking us personally and take it to heart. Is that is all that is left of one's ego that they should carry on, over and over again?

Get over it, these are merely blog names and opinions. You are what you are and not some fictitious blog character.

Maybe it is time to move on.

It is a beautiful day outside, go out and enjoy it.

If you can't say something nice, you're always free to talk about Obama.
