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

Instead of violating freedom if speech with ridiculous bans on anything that hurts "feelings" how about something meaningful like banning violent video games and Movies that promote torture, slaughter and rape. All of the above desensitize and are "how to guides" for socially impaired crazies. Most of whom were put from mental institutions to living among us by the progressive, lib movement that started in the late 60s.

What is the argument for hunting with them? My husband just got 5 deer on his last hunting trip. Filled our freezer full of meat for the winter.

What does that have to do with an autistic white boy killing his mother and 28 others in Conn.?
While Auschwitz is typically used as the meter for concentration camps, it would appear, the prisoners in that camp were marched to their deaths to the strains of “Eine Kleine Nacht Musik”, Strauss and Lehar Waltzes, arias like Puccini’s “Un Bel di” from Madama Butterfly and “Ave Maria”
(ref. Newman & Kirtey’s “Alma Rose, Vienna to Auschwitz”)
Wagner’s music was played in the camp in Dr. Mengele’s laboratory to drown out the screams of his victims.
(ref. Sam Shirakawa in his book on Wilhelm Furtwaengler,“The Devil’s Music Master” wrote in 1992,“The notorious Dr. Mengele reportedly conducted his heinous medical experiments with recordings of Wagner playing continuously in counterpoint to the screamings of his human guinea pigs.”)
In Dachau, Wagner’s music accompanied Nazi party speeches blared over the camp sound system.
Music plays a large part in human environments. Each time the Jerk-In-Chief speaks, I hear the Laurel & Hardy theme song playing back-up(Look at the fine mess you've gotten us into this time!).

Some people have gone completely insane working within the White House listening to the Boy Messiah's recording of Jeremiah Wright playing his organ to "God Bless America? No! No ! No! God Damn America!".

You didn't see the President address the American people yesterday on this subject? That brought him and millions of Americans to tears?
Must have been that "bump" you got on your head. gfy dummie
Hollywood helps the Boy Messiah with camera makeup, scripts and lets him use the "Onion Machine" that makes actors tear up. The Jerk-In-Chief also get tears after laughing insanely(what other way could he laugh?)

Life is a movie, eh, lily?

Obama haters also seem to hate children
We’ve endured too many of these tragedies in the past few years. And each time I learn the news I react not as a President, but as anybody else would -- as a parent. And that was especially true today. I know there’s not a parent in America who doesn’t feel the same overwhelming grief that I do.
The majority of those who died today were children -- beautiful little kids between the ages of 5 and 10 years old. They had their entire lives ahead of them -- birthdays, graduations, weddings, kids of their own. Among the fallen were also teachers -- men and women who devoted their lives to helping our children fulfill their dreams.
So our hearts are broken today -- for the parents and grandparents, sisters and brothers of these little children, and for the families of the adults who were lost. Our hearts are broken for the parents of the survivors as well, for as blessed as they are to have their children home tonight, they know that their children’s innocence has been torn away from them too early, and there are no words that will ease their pain.
As a country, we have been through this too many times. Whether it’s an elementary school in Newtown, or a shopping mall in Oregon, or a temple in Wisconsin, or a movie theater in Aurora, or a street corner in Chicago -- these neighborhoods are our neighborhoods, and these children are our children. And we’re going to have to come together and take meaningful action to prevent more tragedies like this, regardless of the politics.
This evening, Michelle and I will do what I know every parent in America will do, which is hug our children a little tighter and we’ll tell them that we love them, and we’ll remind each other how deeply we love one another. But there are families in Connecticut who cannot do that tonight. And they need all of us right now. In the hard days to come, that community needs us to be at our best as Americans. And I will do everything in my power as President to help.
Because while nothing can fill the space of a lost child or loved one, all of us can extend a hand to those in need -- to remind them that we are there for them, that we are praying for them, that the love they felt for those they lost endures not just in their memories but also in ours.
May God bless the memory of the victims and, in the words of Scripture, heal the brokenhearted and bind up their wounds.
President Obama

NOW HEAR THIS:

(pardon the effrontery, but....)

How 'bout NOT GIVING YOUR 3-YEAR-OLD ACCESS to video games which represent, present, or advocate violence. Or your 13 year old, for that matter.

Who is the PARENT again??????

Hahahahahahahah, not in Connecticut apparently. You see, Oklahoma Genius Boy, diarrhea isn't a disease it's a symptom of disease. You take your cholera for instance or your diphtheria... there aren't many cases of that in Fairfield County currently, that's because the public health service of The United States "banned" them. The people of the United States decided these contagions were killing a lot of people unnecessarily so they got together and did away with them, even in the south eventually which is telling. Or is your concern for the children of Africa or Asia? How interesting? When did that happen? But now what the people of Connecticut have noticed recently is that in spite of their assault on diseases in the past, a new strain of virus has appeared: senseless gun violence. Guess what's going to happen now? Do you imagine they are going to outlaw the patients and the symptoms?

The disrespect you show for your President is disturbing. That's what's wrong with children these days, lack of respect for their elected officials. I bet Adam Lanza had no respect for his elected leaders or any other authority and it resulted in the massacre of 20 children and 7 adults.

<quoted text> Heart touching story bout the guy from lebanon. Also I understand the message you were sending, but to ignore the facts & statistics of life is to lie ones self like romney in the election. It's only common sense that ones environment has a huge affect on their outcome whether good or bad. If we choose to continue to treat our environment as an excuse & not a reason, we will continue to get the same results. We need to look deeper into what were the factors that makes 2 kids from the same environment go in opposite directions. I'm no psychologist, but growing up next door to true struggle in the projects of South Jersey, I watched 3 bros raised in the same hell hole go in 3 different directions (1 a marine, 2nd drug addicted, & 3rd drug dealer now in prison). Like I said, I'm no psychologist, but it don't take a scientist to understand that there is science behind it. The only way for those not raised in that environment to be able to study & assess the topic at hand, one must subjugate themselves to that environment. This is not one of those situations where you can give an outside in aspect. It dont fit into the equation! You have to truly understand struggle & pain!
What you present poses a problem in response: this gets deeply involved with theory, hypotheticals and philosophy.

Are humans fundamentally good, bad or in a constant turmoil between the two? If Good then where, why and when did we begin to morph from solitary predators and into socially cohesive, supportive and altruistic beings? Is there profit from exhibiting Good behavior or does being predatory pay bigger dividends? What is altruism?

How can one distinguish Good from Evil if Good is the only experiential device allowed? Being Evil for a weekend might give you a better understanding and clearer distinction between the two but at what price? If you want to understand, as a science lesson, the evil intent behind the murdering of twenty 6 year old children, do you proceed with that course of learning? What is stopping you? Isn't the collecting of knowledge a good thing in our evolution? It would make us better humans to learn, to understand what Good & Evil, sitting in opposition to each other, truly are. This is where the young need good parenting, mentoring and shared Wisdom.

I have read that humanity took off like a rocket at a great tipping point in our distant past: the appearance of grandparents.
Prior to that moment, short lifespans didn't allow for this family extension. Hurry up, have a baby and then die - didn't give us a vehicle for passing on our learned wisdom of, say, a twenty year lifespan of simple survival. Our kids were too young to understand and we died too soon to teach them anything. Lifespans began to increase - for whatever reasons be they climate change from an Ice Age, we ate better, our intellect grew or a combination of all of this. The parents would still be as busy as ever but the earlier generation would be around to pass on hunting stories, star gazing, mysteries of Life, Bow, knife and spear making, etc.

This accumulated knowledge store was critical to the advancement of the species.(I'm getting long here..) Today, this human process of individual family mentoring is disappearing and is being replace by commercial, cold, profit-making media and government. It doesn't take a village to raise a child anymore. And a child raised by government is no longer a part of the human species.

What you suggest - walking in the shoes of poverty, drugs, prostitution,...- is less an education and more a test, a test that can pull the unguided, unmentored, parentless ghetto child into failure. Evil tempts. Good doesn't.
