Watch Michelle Obama at the White House Summit for Working Families talk about her toughest time as a mother above. 

While President Barack Obama supports flexibility for working families, single mothers and pregnant women in the workforce, Republicans, who always claim to promote family values, continue to push back on the President’s critical domestic initiatives. Republicans are hypocrites – and they aren’t even trying to hide it.

“Parents who work full time should earn enough to pay the bills,” Obama said in a recent speech during the White House Summit for Working Families. “Even if Republicans in Congress refuse to budge on this issue this year, everyone knows America deserves a raise.”

The summit was hosted by the White House to circumvent a mean-spirited Republican-controlled House. It was designed to help families’ better balance work and spend more time at home. Obama announced a package of both public and private sector efforts that will protect pregnant working women, increase investments for research to understand the economic benefits of paid leave, expand apprenticeships for women, and make child care more affordable for working families.

The White House said since Obama grew up as the son of a single mother, paid off his student loans, and is raising two young daughters in a household with two working parents, he understands the value of hard work and the many struggles that American families face today.

“Many women can’t even get a paid day off to give birth,” Obama said. “Now that’s a pretty low bar. “When women succeed, America succeeds, so there’s no such thing as a women’s issue. … There’s a family issue and an American issue.” “There is only one developed country that does not mandate paid maternity leave,” Obama said, “and that is us. And that is not the list you want to be on by your lonesome.”

Obama signed a Presidential memo this week directing the federal government to expand access to flexible time for workers. Labor Secretary Thomas Perez will head a $25 million initiative to help people who want to enroll in job-training programs but don’t have access to child care.

“I take this personally because I’m the husband of a brilliant woman who struggled to balance work and raising our girls when I was away,” Obama continued. “And most of all, I take it personally because I am the father of two unbelievable young ladies.”

And what has Obama received for his efforts? The threat of a federal lawsuit by House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) who says its necessary to declare President Obama’s executive orders unconstitutional. Obama has already signed executive orders to protect workers from being retaliated against by their bosses if they discuss their wages and has lobbied aggressively for an increase in the federal minimum wage. In a memo to House members, Boehner indicated the legal action would cover a number of issues but did not cite specific cases of executive overreach. Sources believe the lawsuit will be filed sometime in July.

“On matters ranging from health care and energy to foreign policy and education, President Obama has repeatedly run an end-around on the American people and their elected legislators, straining the boundaries of the solemn oath he took on Inauguration Day,” the memo said.

It’s a ridiculous for Boehner to sue the President, which of course is a feeble attempt to tarnish Obama’s legacy. Boehner insists that his impending suit is not about the impeaching the President, which some Republicans support.

In fact, Rep. Lou Barletta (R-Pa.) said the House of Representatives could “probably” impeach Obama if the matter was brought to the floor.

The South Dakota Republican Party already passed a resolution to impeach President Obama. I don’t know if Boehner’s impending legal case has any validity in a court of law, but I do know this: It’s hard out there for a Black man in the White House.

    Oh- I forgot to mention on the post where I was explaining to you the traits that the Aryans carried over from their Neanderthal Grandfathers. The other trait is the strong Odor. When ever a white person gets sweaty or wet they smell just like a wet dog. Don’t believe me. Check it out yourself if you ever have the displeasure of being close to a white devil.

    My Brothers and sisters we must stick together. We must fight this evil that is trying to do to us, what they did to our other brothers and sisters in the past. They couldn’t kill us off so they raped us. Now they are throwing their women at our men trying to breed our souls out of us. We must unite we must protect ourselves and our families.

    Because of their Greed and envy they just didn’t want our land they also wanted our history. So they started to claim that the history of the land they took over was their own. They started to caim that they were Gods people. Look at Egypt. All the painting in the pyramids are of Blacks but look at the people who live their now. They are not even close to black. And they can’t even stop fighting long enough to take care of their own people. The original Isrealites where black. However, the modern day Jew took over Isreal and enslaved the blacks their. Then they claimed that they were the original occupants of that land. Claiming the bible as their own. But we know better. Just look at them. Look at their Greed, it gives them away. Sadly the Aryan race had beat Gods people back all the way to Africa. Fortunatly their was a huge desert in their way. They didn’t know how to deal with the heat and lack of water so they were not able to crossed into the rest of Africa to pollute the black race in the rest of Africa. But then the white devils figured out how to build boats.

    With their news smarts they expanded their territory. But unlike the Africans who were just looking for a place to raise their family. The Aryans conquered and enslaved. This is why the closer you get to Africa from The homeland of the Neanderthals the Aryans started to gain some color back into their skins because they would enslave any African that already ocupied the land and would rape them.

  5. dangerous BlkMan on said:

    Now the new white race lived and intermixed with the Neanderthals. Some of this is captured in the whites folklore. Think when Zues destroyed his father the Titans. As the Aryans grew in number they eventually bread out the neanderthals or just simply killed them. You see, when the Neanderthal raped the African Woman her offspring was a mix of African and Neanderthal. They had similar bone structure as the African. With some of the intellegents. They started making better weapons and tools. Better dwellings. They started to create larger societies similiar to the Africans. The only probelm is that they where not guided by God. They were selfish and greedy something that they retained from the Neanderthals. They also keeped the white skin and colored eyes. They had a preposition to enslave themsleves. Remember the old surf system and the endengered servant system. They did all this to themsleves. DOn’t forget about the massive slaveing opporation they established. (romans, creeks.)

    You can still see some of the traits on the skulls of whites. Like a larger forhead that protrudes making the eyes look as if they are sunkin. This trait would have helped the great apeman to protect its eys from slashes. Now when the adventerous African wandered into their territory looking for land to occupy the giant beast would attack them without mercy. Normally killing the man and enslaving the woman for use as a trinket to show off to other Neanderthals. Where they would be constantly gaurded and raped by the Neanderthals. THis is where the Aryan race came from. They are the offspring of the Neanderthals and the captive women.

    The Neanderthal was a large ape. Covered in blond to redish fur from head to toe and had blue or green eyes. They were roughly humaniod shape like many of the great apes. They had a larger upper body than the humans (Africans) much stronger with thicker skulls. (think big foot). They had a strong odor about them. The Neanderthals needed the increase strength and thicker skulls because they where not as smart as Gods chosen people. They had to kill their prey with their bare hands or larg rocks. They where capable of making crude tools. Like spears and using rocks to break thinks open. It is not clear if they knew how to make fire though. However they lived in packs. like dogs. The thick skulls protected them when they attacked each other or other animals. Like armour.

    Now I know what you are asking me now. But where did white people come from? Relax I am getting there. The Africans prospered in the land and they created many societies. As they grew the younger Africans had to expand out. Now the Africans loved to invent and explore. So some of them traveled far. Sadly they did not know about the monsters that lived in the cold and harsh inviroments of the north and far east. This is where they ran into the Neanderthals.

    Here is a short history lesson for you good people out their. This is the history of white people. Now originally When God created man he created him with black skin. Now before all you trolls on this website start saying that it isn’t so. Look at any scientific journal of where intelligent life has been proven to have started. It started in Africa. Africa is the birth place that God chose for his people.
