Barack Obama, our next President

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ... Full Story

Oh, lighten up. I actually don't like the criminalization of casual smokers of marijuana.
But to say smoking weed in public is more acceptable than tobacco is ludicrous. It may not have the harmful chemicals but it has other effects that others may not want to be subjected to.
Advocating smoking cannabis over tobacco is like advocating being run over by a motorcycle instead of a truck. I do think it should be decriminalized, since we've wasted billions on the war against life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
It looks like the next battle the DEA and FDA want to start is against "vaping" - which has no tar, no smoke and whose (typically food grade) ingredients are easily analyzed and regulated. The leaders in the charge against vaporizers are the same pharma companies that sell smoking cessation products, nebulizer and chemo drugs. Go figure.

His attorney introduced the shotgun story___jacksonville.com/
Interesting is that Angela Corey of George Zimmerman fame is the States Attorney for JAX.
A guess. Wedding/drinks but not drunk. Look it could have been a beer bottle, Red Bull can or something along that line. I wouldn't care if they were purple if I thought they were pulling a gun on me I doubt I would wait for them to fire first.

With the threat of a Romney presidency no longer an issue I think we can all relax a little.

Take some time off to hug loved one or maybe take in a movie with friends.

With the dark cloud of Mitt no longer hanging over our heads it's time to look towards the future.

You are a dim wit. The depression ended when the US geared up for war, WW2. Factories turning out equipment and arms. Factories that required workers.

Dear phuckface, So you are saying that government spending can actually pull a country out of a depression?

Not real versed on weapons. Are sawed off shotguns legal? Did the white guy have it in his car? SO easy to speculate as we weren't there. A tragedy all around.
No they are not legal. The white guy didn't have the supposed shotgun. The teen supposedly did. I think the barrel has to be longer than six inches past the stock. If I sawed the barrel off my .410 it would be less than 18 inches. Cut off the shoulder stock and you are under 12 inches.

Too cold to swim in the ocean this time of year. I don't go out that far anyway.
But Obama said the rise of the oceans will begin to slow and our planet will begin to heal because he was elected.
Pretty outrageous statement for a president to make, huh? One might think he's a bit narcissistic.
Blame Obama for everything, the sun comes up and it is his fault?
Your Tea Party wing of the Republican Party pushed out moderate Sen. Richard Lugar in Indiana and then ran Tea Party candidate Richard Mourdock, who lost to the Democrat in a state Romney won. Tea Party candidate Todd Akins, of Missouri, imploded which bled into the race in North Dakota, giving Democrat Heidi Hietkamp a close win in a Republican state.
Your posts helped elect President Obama.
Thanks!

but once they do, you have no idea how apologetic i will be.
What you fail to understand, of course, is color has nothing to do with it. The supposed gun is the point whether white, black, green, or purple.

I try to be discreet, I don't be blowing smoke at nobody!

Either out in the woods/fields or in my own home!

I'm LEGAL (got my card) the dispensaries are LEGAL (for now)!

It's the way it should always have been.

It's a developing story, the details are dribbling out. The guy exited his own vehicle and approached theirs, they pulled away and he fired 4 more shots. The victim was a 17 high school student who worked PT at Winn Dixie.

The shooter bolted driving all the way home (150 miles)

There were witnesses galore and more than likely video tape.

He's charged with second degree murder and being held in Duval County with no bond.

I read that Mitt paid his campaign "braintrust" leaders $134 million for their work.
Obama paid his leaders $6 million. Which enabled him to spend more money in every swing state city. "Boots on the ground"
Looks like the private sector data crunchers Mitt "experts" got their azzzzz kicked so hard.
Mitt: had the best all that money could buy?
Well those well heeled "advisors" sure had Mitt convinced he won......right up till midnight!
Then: WHAMMMMM!
BIGGEST BEATING EVER!!

Pray to Obama for a brain transplant...for BOTH of you, actually, since 4 years of incompetence in the White House and 4 more years ahead only proves his supporters are as incompetent as he is. Bwhahahahahahahahahaha...

Huh?

Just saying:$134 million in fees from Mitt the private equity expert businessman for "leaders advisors etc..."

Vs.

$6 million paid to "experts" by Obama the "community organizer."

It looks like the community organizer was better at deploying assets? Better than the filthy rich businessman? With all those high priced experts? Oh yeah! Way better.

What is it to be a Republican in 2012?

First off: be a climate change denier, run 8 different front runners including those with no chance of winning: Bachmann or Cain?

NO LEADERSHIP!

then have repo leaders come out and say put an aspirin between your knees for birth control? True story!

Refuse to raise taxes one dollar for every ten dollars in cuts? Yep! Crazy?

Embrace legitimate rapers? And "God's will rapers"? Yep!

CRAZY?

THEN THE FRONT RUNNER MITT: 47% of citizens......blah blah blah! Yep! Crazy?

Republicans 2012......a lesson in crazy?

Obama: Genius! Best campaign ever? Looks like it!

Ok answer this. You role on 4 white teens sitting out front of a 7-11 with their music blaring. You ask them to turn it down and they give you grief. You get out the car and get into a shouting match. Out of the corner of your eye you see what you think is a gun. What do you do? Stand there? Run? Get in the first shot? Look, in my day to day travels I get far more grief from white people than blacks. I usually don't lump people into groups. I take each person on their own merits.

Mitt and the POTUS are doing lunch tomorrow at the white house. With nothing at all to lose, do ya reckon that Mitt might share his plan for twelve million jobs?

Hah! Fat chance.

Mitt the Great is only one for four in elections___not real good eh?

Not a gun owner...first instinct would be take cover. Mouthy disrespectful people come in all colors. I was taught bigger/more intelligent person walks away from most fights. What are the chances they are going to turn it down anyway? Conduct my business and move along. All about picking your battles.

If there were a true leader in the White House, not someone who relied on fantasy to gain supporters, he would be able to work with both sides of Congress, just as Clinton and others did. Unfortunately, the ignorant fantasy believers chose campaign hoopla and 4 more years of incompetence over possible success.
