Barack Obama, our next President

Full story: Hampton Roads Daily Press

"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 ...

Please explain the disasters he has "fixed" and the catastrophes he as "prevented".
Well, for starters, he kept Mittens out of the White House. Catastrophe prevented.

I proposed several explanations. Callousness towards our own species and the unborn was just one of them.
Of course, we could just be reaping what we have sown not only because of this but the other explanations.
What do you think is causing such senseless violence among our young people?
Would be great if "the unborn" once born, were not referred to as the 47% or the takers by Gov. Romney.

Support medical care for all our citizens and the least number of abortions possible each year.

Not really. Just drop the anti-abortion platform and they will go away.
The nutty evangelicals are the base. Look at the states where Tea Party candidates were elected to state offices. What did they legislate? Vaginal probes, personhood amendments, and defunding planned parenthood. You are stuck with them.

1) Liberalism creates a feedback loop. It is usually impossible for a non-liberal to change a liberal's mind about political issues because liberalism works like so: only liberals are credible sources of information. How do you know someone's liberal? He espouses liberal doctrine. So, no matter how plausible what you say may be, it will be ignored if you're not a liberal and if you are a liberal, of course, you probably agree with liberal views.
2) Liberals sources of information are ever present. Conservatives are regularly exposed to the liberal viewpoint whether they want to be or not. That's not necessarily so for liberals. Imagine the average day for liberals. They get up and read their local newspaper. It has a liberal viewpoint. They take their kids to school, where the teachers are liberal. Then they go to work, listen to NPR which has a liberal viewpoint on the way home, and then turn on the nightly news which also skews leftward. From there, they turn on TV and watch shows created by liberals that lean to the left, if they have any political viewpoint at all. Unless liberals actively seek out conservative viewpoints, which is unlikely, the only conservative arguments they're probably going to hear are going to be through the heavily distorted, poorly translated, deeply skeptical lens of other liberals.

Proud of President Obama, reelected with majority both times.
Barack Obama is flying to the Connecticut town devastated by America's second-deadliest school shooting to mourn with relatives of the 20 children and six adults who lost their lives.
The president will attend an interfaith vigil in the evening in Newtown, where he will also visit the families of those who lost children in Friday's massacre, carried out a 20-year-old local man, Adam Lanza. The gunman forced his way into Sandy Hook elementary school on Friday morning and opened fire on children and teachers before killing himself.
Obama has spoken of the need to "take meaningful action" to do something about America's dismal problem with mass shootings. The age of the victims – the children were all six or seven – has prompted a particularly furious outcry against gun ownership in a country in which support for the right to own weapons remains strong.
I truly hope that this tragedy will result in the reintroduction of the assault weapons ban; it will be a start. No one needs an assault weapon. We should all write to our congress person.

My position is that if we lived in a libertarian society you'd have far less violence even though you may have more guns.

i mean really, who better to tell us about conservatives but conservatives?

The Republicans Have Failed the Nation

“Obsequious praise for small government does the Republicans no good when they too are in favor of big government in their actions.”

http://www.redstate.com/2012/12/13/the-republ...

but wait a minute....he's talking about Republicans like they're not conservatives. how can that be? does that mean all Democrats might not be liberals?

now if only the Dems had to worry about that.

Bernie Goldberg, a former main stream media journalist, said the liberal media believes itself to be the norm. The second thing you said is more accurate than not. Many people who criticize Fox also admit to never having watched it or only watch for five minutes.
I used to watch MSNBC all the time. They used to discuss the issues and Scarborough used to be the conservative voice.
But then they started finding fault with everyone who doesn't agree with them.
Fox has regular democrat contributors all the time. Juan Williams sat in for O'Reilly numerous times. Geraldo Rivera, a democrat, and has his own show. Stossel, a libertarian, has his own show.
Kind of ironic they are the most versatile but yet the most criticized.
HHAHAHAHAHAHAJAHAHA!

GOP divided between libertarians, evangelicals and moderates afraid to come out of the closet.
In the end the Bob Dole types may regain control of the party.
Feel Reagan would feel ashamed of this party

Interesting article about Asperbergers syndrome children. They certainly seem to be volatile time bombs....

Obviously the shooter was insane - there's no other meaningful way to define the mental state of someone who murders people at random, let alone little kids. It's not possible to know what kind of chaos or hatred was swirling around in that mind that produced these actions, but one thing is 100% certain for me: It had nothing whatsoever to do with having Asperger's, if indeed it is the case that he had that condition. Maybe the isolation and difficulty communicating deprived him of social supports that help other people cope with life, but I can't comprehend an autistic-spectrum disability being the actual cause of such actions.

When I asked my son’s social worker about my options, he said that the only thing I could do was to get Michael charged with a crime.“If he’s back in the system, they’ll create a paper trail,” he said.“That’s the only way you’re ever going to get anything done. No one will pay attention to you unless you’ve got charges.”

I don’t believe my son belongs in jail. The chaotic environment exacerbates Michael’s sensitivity to sensory stimuli and doesn’t deal with the underlying pathology. But it seems like the United States is using prison as the solution of choice for mentally ill people. According to Human Rights Watch, the number of mentally ill inmates in U.S. prisons quadrupled from 2000 to 2006, and it continues to rise -- in fact, the rate of inmate mental illness is five times greater (56 percent) than in the non-incarcerated population.

Causing undo and unnecessary duress on grieving parents and families is harmful.
Yell fire in a crowded theater and see what happens. That, too, creates undo and unnecessary duress. It, too, is harmful.
It is also illegal.
Common sense dictates "harmful speech". Complacency allows it.
Many would say that calling abortion "murder" is harmful speech.

Many Christians detest the evangelical fringe element.

But then, you folks on the evangelical side believe that you are the only "Christians."

In actuality, both how and why are VERY valid questions. We already have gun laws on the books prohibiting disturbed people from having access to firearms. That is why the investigation is ongoing.
You also didnt answer how you stretched your argument to include me and everyone else in the "culapablity" column. As I said, I've never committed a gun crime, and I wont accept any of the blame for the activity of a small group of deviant freaks....
Do we have laws requiring medical personnel to identify "disturbed people" so as to eliminate their access to firearms?

I've been asking the same question and its not limited to young people. Don't think our perpetual state of war might have anything to do with it do ya?
