Im really getting tired of this racial bull crap! Starting with this idiot professor gates , then a bunch of black dumb ass elites, keep blaming whitey because their black,.  And now this dam fool Jimmy Carter.  This idiot has done as much if not more to damage the United States image around the world and between the races here at home, than even Obama. Now he’s out there shooting his mouth off, the next thing you know we will be in another decade of race riots because this stupid SOB , is still a live. God I beg you , take this sucker out of here. He is the Racist. He’s an Anti Semite. Carter says obama is a African American,, he’s even wrong about that .  Why would anyone put a microphone in front of this idiot. Somebody hand this fool a nail gun.
 
We allowed this fool to give away our Panama Canel,.. He should have been taken out then,.. and Hung for treason.  If I sound ticked off its because I am frankly thats an understatement . I lived thru the empty headed Carter Administration,.  And now we have this copy cat obama,….. When , When are we going to pull our heads out of our back sides,..
 
When I heard Carter make his dumb ass comments today , I was ready to take a hammer to the radio. If Martin Luther King were alive today, he would grab Carter by the ears and shake the _ _ _ _ out of him.  And then send him on his way,… Carter , obama’s Akorn , his minions are doing everything they can to restart a racially divided America all over again.
 
obama needs to make up his mind is he black or white or both,.. Personally I could not care less,.. Except to say that he is using his black half to keep the race issue on the front burner. He’s obviously mad about something,, is it because he’s a half breed,. Or is it because he is only half white , or only half black. 
 
 
Once again, Im going to tell you this , American time is wasting ,. We have got to cut out the cancer , the gangerine from the United States.  We need to completly shut them down.  Send no money,,.. We need to call everyone of these weasles in the House and Senate and tell them that we are going to do the following:
 
First we are never going to call or email their office again. And we are going to vote everyone of them out of office. White,Black,Green,Yellow,Brown.
 
Second: We are never going to file another 1040. 
 
We are through,    Done,,, Dont call us, write us , email us,  we have blocked your calls and sent your dam emails to spam.  The federal government its former, and present employees can eat cake.  Those fools in DC created all this debt,  you created it, you fix it.  go after bush, take his pension and everymember of his cabinet that supported his spending habits,..
 
We are never going to have peace in this country again until we shed our selves of this nightmare in DC.
 
Remember this , the Constitution was written for the United States of America,.. There is no mention of the District of Columbia,.. So kiss off.
 
 
 
 
 

Obama put tarrif of 35% on Chinese Tires, its about time.

WASHINGTON — The Obama administration will put steep import duties of 35% in the first year on Chinese passenger and light truck tires, responding to what the U.S. International Trade Commission determined to be a surge of Chinese tire exports that has rocked the domestic U.S. tire industry and displaced thousands of jobs, U.S. Trade Representative Ron Kirk announced Friday night.

Associated PressA Chinese worker moves large tires at an assembly line in Beijing, China, Friday, Sept. 11, 2009.

China’s government responded quickly to the announcement, saying in a statement that it “strongly opposes” what it called “a serious act of trade protectionism.” China “reserves the right to make further response,” the Ministry of Commerce statement said.

President Barack Obama campaigned for the presidency using tough trade rhetoric and appealing to union workers. He said he would renegotiate the North American Free Trade Agreement to incorporate stricter labor and environmental standards. And he said China must abide by the rules of the WTO or face consequences.

Since Inauguration Day, however, the president has toned down his stand. At the April G20 meeting in London and the July G8 meeting in Italy, he led leaders pledging to resist protectionism as a global recession led to rising worker anger. But administration officials have indicated they were taking a stern look at the ITC’s findings of an unfair Chinese export surge in the tire market. Mr. Obama announced last night he was instructing the secretaries of commerce and labor to expedite consideration of additional tire worker assistance under the Trade Adjustment Assistance program, which offers education, retraining and other aid to workers whose lives were disrupted by trade agreements and unfair trade practices.

The case was originally brought by the United Steelworkers. Notably, the tire industry didn’t join the case — tacit recognition that it has long ago left the US market for the low-end tires at issue.

President Obama’s action stands in contrast to that of his predecessor. President George W. Bush rejected four ITC recommendations for tariffs against China.

The U.S. announcement of 35% import tariffs, which would decline to 30% in the second year and 25% in the third, comes at a sensitive time. The heads of state of the 20 largest economies arrive in Pittsburgh in less than two weeks for a summit of the Group of 20, amid rising trade tensions and looming economic disputes. The United States needs China to help float a U.S. deficit expected to reach $1.56 trillion this year. Mr. Obama is also likely to seek new sanctions against Iran to combat its nuclear program, and China’s vote on the United Nations Security Council is pivotal.

But administration officials said the president couldn’t ignore findings that they said were violations of China’s obligations under the rules of the World Trade Organization.

“The President decided to remedy the clear disruption to the U.S. tire industry based on the facts and the law in this case,” White House spokesman Robert Gibbs said in a statement.

United Steelworkers backed the Obama administration’s decision to impose tariffs on Chinese tires. “The President sent the message that we expect others to live by the rules, just as we do,” USW International President Leo W. Gerard said in a statement.

Vic DeIorio, Executive Vice President at GITI Tire, the largest manufacturer of tires in China, said he was “deeply disappointed” by the decision.

“By taking this unprecedented action, the Obama administration is now at odds with its own public statements about refraining from increasing tariffs above current levels,” Mr. DeIorio said. “This decision will cost many more American jobs than it will create. It will also increase costs for, and take away choices from, American consumers.”

The Chinese government’s statement, issued by commerce ministry spokesman Yao Jian on the ministry’s Web site, said the U.S. decision “not only violates WTO rules, but also runs against U.S. pledges at the G-20 summits, constitutes an abuse of trade remedy measures, and sets an extremely bad precedent in the current backdrop of a world economy in crisis.” China could refer the case to the WTO, the statement said.

With its massive export sector battered by the global recession this year, China’s government has repeatedly voiced concern about protectionism. Premier Wen Jiabao called attention to this issue Thursday at a speech to the World Economic Forum in Dalian, China, saying “we must be on guard against, and act to correct, all kinds of hidden protectionist activity.” Critics have accused China of itself making protectionist moves, such as the government’s rejection earlier this year of a bid by Coca Cola Co. to buy a Chinese juice maker.

Between 2004 and 2008, China’s tire production capacity surged by 152% and is projected to jump an additional 16% by 2010. At 235.2 million tires, China’s production capacity in 2008 was more than three times greater than its shipments to its home market. U.S. imports of tires from 2004 to 2008 jumped from 14.6 million to 46 million. China’s share of the U.S. tire market surged 255% in that time, to 16.7% from 4.7%.

Meanwhile, four U.S. tire plants closed in 2006 and 2007. Three more are planned for closure this year. There were 5,168 fewer workers in the U.S. tire industry in 2008 than there were in 2004.

“When China came in to the WTO, the U.S. negotiated the ability to impose remedies in situations just like this one,” Mr. Kirk said. “This Administration is doing what is necessary to enforce trade agreements on behalf of American workers and manufacturers. Enforcing trade laws is key to maintaining an open and free trading system.”

Mr. Kirk said U.S. trade negotiators consulted with China and timed the release for the start of the Chinese business day. The first tariffs should take effect in 15 days. The tariffs would come on top of 4% tariffs already levied on all passenger and light-truck tires imported into the U.S. market.

Trade lawyers said the decision could invite a raft of similar petitions for temporary protection from Chinese imports. Such so-called safeguards — meant to give U.S. industry a breather in the event of a sudden surge of Chinese products — were negotiated as part of China’s accession the World Trade Organization at the beginning of this decade. U.S. businesses won’t be able to seek such safeguards after 2013.
