Does any one actually read the article before flying into a fit of furry. FORBES said  that these were the most powerful people. I do not buy nor read their magazine so that shows that these are the top 2% being the judge and the rest of you think you are the executioners. IN MY BOOK GOD IS THE ALL MIGHTY POWERFUL AND GOD ALONE. NO ONE ELSE can compare!!!

For the Scriptures say, "'As surely as I live,' says the LORD, EVERY knee will bow to me, and EVERY tongue will confess and give praise to God.'"  (Romans 14:11)

 

Wow, that kind of real power will NEVER exist in a MAN!!!

Our most powerful man in the world is a half white/half black, Muslim Muppet with someone else's hand up his **** making all the wrong moves

B.S.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The man is a puppet who never says anything he hasn't been told to say. He has no original thoughts and no clue about what's going on in this country or the world. He has no idea how to fix what he has broken, other than to do what he has been doing for the past four years...making things worse and pretending he had nothing to do with it. Takes credit for things he had nothing to do with (Osama Bin Laden) and passes the buck for things that were his responsibility (Benghazi and "Fast and Furious"). Most powerful man in the world my FOOT! Who comes up with this crapppp?

Its sad that the No. 1 person doesn't have any idea what made our country great nor how to keep it that way.  His way is spend - spend - spend and be on everyone's side but the USA.  Once the most powerful nation, under him we are and will be the least. If he is the most powerful in fact, we are really screwed!!!

Their is a difference between the largest army and the largest military. In simple terms they have more soldiers, we have more eqiupment and resources.

We have a terrorist acting as our president who has nothing on his plate more important than destroying our country and turning it over to illegal immigrants for helping him to get elected.  He sounds powerfully mistaken if he thinks we will stand for it!!!

What has the world happened to the Declaration of Independence  and the morality of our leaders?  Believe that your #1 is trying to destroy our country by his use of Presidential Orders and  taking over our Health System and financial system and at the same time putting our country so far in debt that it will destroy our currency. Yeah, he is really #1.

[BRIEFING.COM] The stock market ended the Tuesday session on a lower note after generally upbeat earnings took the back seat to geopolitical concerns. The S&P 500 (-0.5%) and Nasdaq Composite (-0.1%) ended on their lows, while the Russell 2000 (+0.3%) displayed relative strength.

Once again, market participants were focused on quarterly reports in the early going, but geopolitical worries overshadowed the impact of mostly better than expected earnings. Specifically, equities ... More
