Barack Obama, our next President

Lies told by Obama and his administration are for the benefit of their useful idiots.
It was pathetic watching Obama lie to our faces during the Bill O'Reilly interview prior to the Super Bowl about there being absolutely no corruption or criminality regarding the IRS scandal.
Newsweek poll of 1000 US citizens revealed

29% couldn't name the vice president

43% unable to define bill of rights

40% didn't know America fought Japan & Germany in WWII

73% didn't know Communism was main concern of the cold war

67% didn't know US economy is a capitalistic system

Only 1 in 4 could name more than 1 of the first 5 freedoms the 1st amendment upholds.

These are your typical LIV's who vote democrat, and clearly don't watch media like Fox News, they watch clown comedians like Stewart and Colbert.

Our liberal teachers are failing us

it very plainly says that 84% of the white people killed in 2010 were killed by white people.
it also says that black offenders were less likely to be involved in sex-related killings (43.4%), workplace homicides,(25.8%) or homicides of elders age 65 or older (41.9%).

does it not say that? can you read? now would be the time to prove it.
virtually all black on white crime is stranger on stranger, I can control the white people I associate with, it's more difficult to live freely and avoid black criminals. Blacks target whites for crimes.

I doubt if anyone could come up with one single black woman being raped by a white man.

The media ignores blacks turning on their white co workers, but it certainly happens and frequently.

I think it is very unfair to somehow tie the drought issue to Obama playing golf on his day off. That is a bit of a stretch. However, you seem very uninformed when it comes to golf courses in the Coachella Valley. It isn't like they aren't concerned about water usage and haven't made efforts to use less.
The two courses that Obama played were Sunnylands and Porcupine Creek.
"In recent years, the 200-acre Sunnylands has cut back on the amount of turf grass and installed a more efficient irrigation system... The course has prepared to transition to an as-yet-unfinished city-wide reclaimed water system.
“The Annenberg Retreat at Sunnylands has taken significant measures to reduce water usage,” Geoffrey Cowan, the president of the Annenberg Foundation Trust at Sunnylands, said in the release.”In consideration of the conditions that led Governor Brown to make a drought declaration, reducing water consumption is a more important priority than ever.”
The Coachella Valley Water District (CVWD) director has said that "most golf courses in the Coachella Valley are very conscientious about their water use, and they take a lot of steps to make sure that they're not over watering."
The general manager of the city-owned Desert Willow Golf Resort in Palm Desert says that they "use almost 90 percent recycled water and so we're not tapping into the well water that some of the other courses are."
According to CVWD, Desert Willow is among 41 courses in the Valley that don't rely on ground water, and that over the past decade, with the resources available, golf courses have increased their use of nonpotable water by more than 30 percent. That percentage will increase significantly once the city-wide reclaimed water system is finished.

No USA, you misunderstood me. I didn't tie the drought to Obama! heavens no! I said he should "lead by example". And you are absolutely correct! I know NOTHING about golf courses in the Coachella Valley nor do I know a damn thing about golf courses in Palm Springs. I do not play golf nor am I fan. What I do know is that when the President is sitting up on his soap box using our State's drastic drought emergency to further his climate change agenda, then he should have the decency to not play golf on the velvety, deep green and overly watered golf courses of our State. He and his wife are very good at telling the American people what they should or should not do to sacrifice for the greater good yet they, themselves, are exempt from sacrificing.....In my opinion, they should "lead by example".....

Have you been up North to the wine country lately? It is horrific. I was there last month and it was as dry as a bone. The prices of California wines will be rising exponentially if the drought continues and nothing is done.....

"Obama takes hypocrisy to ludicrous levels.
After preaching shared sacrifice to assuage the California water shortage, Obama plays some of the country’s thirstiest golf courses.
President Barack Obama traveled to California Friday to highlight the state’s drought emergency at two events near Fresno, calling for shared sacrifice to help manage the state’s worst water-shortage in decades. He then spent the rest of the weekend enjoying the hospitality of some of the state’s top water hogs: desert golf courses.
Vacationing with DVDs of his favorite television shows and multiple golf outings with his buddies, the duffer-in-chief played at two of the most exclusive courses in the Palm Springs area. On Saturday, Obama played at the Sunnylands estate, built by the late billionaire Walter Annenberg, which features a nine-hole course that is played like 18 holes. The following day he golfed at billionaire Oracle founder Larry Ellison’s 19-hole Porcupine Creek. On Presidents’ Day, Obama hit the links at Sunnylands once again.
The 124 golf courses in the Coachella Valley consume roughly 17 percent of all water there, and one quarter of the water pumped out of the region’s at-risk groundwater aquifer, according to the . Statewide, roughly one percent of water goes to keep golf courses green. Each of the 124 Coachella Valleycourses, on average, uses nearly 1 million gallons a day due to the hot and dry climate, 3-4 times more water per day than the average American golf course."
on the other hand, without the golf courses and other irrigation, very few people would choose to live in the Coachella Valley......

<quoted text>I must confess our relationship is limited somewhat by the golf issue. I don't mean to complain, however, it does seem a bit over the top to commit 600 or so acres to hitting a little ball into a little hole, but who am I to judge? The introduction of the little cars to carry you around and chill beer seems to me to be insult on top of injury... but I'll stay out of it. Just be advised that come the Revolution the sand traps and the greens and fairways are going to be reversed I suspect. You wait and see, in the end it'll make for a better game in a lot less space. Can't really get a better workout than struggling along with your sticks in blowing sand I always say....

Do some research on why the farmers are so screwed in the Central Valley of CA.....it's not just drought conditions. Politics play a huge part of the problem......Government is putting the lives of a smelt before those of California farmers and their ability to continue farming.....
I live in Southern CA. It is as dry as I have ever seen it and I have lived here my entire life. Governor Moonbeam has called a drought emergency.
"We ought to be ready for a long, continued, persistent effort to restrain our water use," Brown said, adding that conservation efforts would be "voluntary."
Right now, we are voluntarily cutting back our water consumption 20%. Since Obama took the drought emergency to drill home his "climate change" agenda, he should lead by example and cut back on HIS water consumption while in the Golden State.

Hey dem, I was wondering when I would hear from you. I'm not a particular fan of John Boehner and I don't believe he has any business sticking his nose into CA politics, economy and agricultural problems. Closing some of the superfluous golf courses would be a start. I don't see why the smelt and rich democrats should be exempt from giving their fair share.....do you?
Galt must disagree with you....

closing the golf courses will destroy property values and Galt will be outta here.....
