Barack Obama, our next President

Down from what? If you look at the statistics for just the city of Chicago, they murder as many people in just that one city as are killed in a full-scale war. I've got a solution to that problem....
Train dogs to detect firearms. Patrol the streets where most of the killing is happening of Chicago with those dogs. Arrest any person found to be carrying an illegal gun. If that gun was stolen, send that person to prison.
Problem solved.
What's wrong with this solution to the problem of Chicago stacking corpses to the rafters in the morgue every goddam weekend?
Houston's murder rate is only 4 down the list from Chicago's, and Dallas a little behind that. "Think globally, act locally" and then you can move on to Louisiana...

Ignorance is lack of knowledge. I have knowledge of how many people are murdered in Chicago. Lying is speaking other than what you know to be true.
You are a liar.
You know, like everyone in the entire Obama administration is a liar. That has been proven over and over.
Now, stop running away.
The over/under for the number of murders in Chicago over the Christmas weekend is 20, the same as the number of children killed in Connecticutt. Will there be more, or fewer murders in Chicago over the Christmas weekend than the number of children killed in Connecticutt?
What do you choose? Over or under?
And, since you live in Chicago, you can tell us who wins the lottery.
The good news is that the guns will be taken off the streets of Chicago, as well as from your trailer!!

Isn't Obama wonderful in his wisdom!!

He will reshape th eSupreme Court, and sanity will return to our gun laws.

As Chief Jusrtice Burger said:

"The idea that the Second Amendment guarantees the right of an individual to own a gun is a "fraud" according to the late Supreme Court Justice Warren Burger."

Two more appointments to the SC will mold it as a liberal hedge for a generation.

Elections have consequences.

Your stupidity has consequences, too.

Here comes the fiscal cliff.
Happy New Year.
I'm satisfied. We finally have a bipartisan agreement put into action.
It was bipartisan agreements you wanted, right?
Well, you got what you wanted.
... grow up.
Between the humiliating and chaotic collapse of Speaker Boehner's already ludicrously extreme Plan B and Wayne La Pierre's deranged proposal to put government agents in schools with guns, the Republican slide into total epistemic closure and political marginalization has now become a free-fall. This party, not to mince words, is unfit for government. There is no conservative party in the West - except for minor anti-immigrant neo-fascist ones in Europe - anywhere close to this level of far right extremism. And now the damage these fanatics can do is not just to their own country - was the debt ceiling debacle of 2011 not enough for them?- but to the entire world.

Those of us who have warned for years about this disturbing trend toward ever more extreme measures - backing torture, pre-emptive un-budgeted wars, out-of-control spending followed, like a frantic mood swing, by anti-spending absolutism of the most insane variety in a steep recession, vicious hostility to illegal immigrants, contempt for gay couples, hostility even to contraception, let alone a middle ground on abortion ... well, you know it all by now.

But the current constitutional and economic vandalism removes any shred of doubt that this party and its lucrative media bubble is in any way conservative. They aren't. They're ideological zealots, indifferent to the consequences of their actions, contemptuous of the very to-and-fro essential for the American system to work, gerry-mandering to thwart the popular will, filibustering in a way that all but wrecks the core mechanics of American democracy, and now willing to acquiesce to the biggest tax increase imaginable because they cannot even accept Obama's compromise from his clear campaign promise to raise rates for those earning over $250,000 to $400,000 a year.

And this is not the exception. It is the rule.

wouldn't it be nice for you if you could go to anywhere but a far right wing site and find anyone talking the way you do?

so no one should get worked up about your minority rhetoric. it will never ever find a national stage, and your repetitive showing of your anger and frustration just signals that you are well aware of that fact.

Praise, Blame, Despair: Right-Wing Media Can't Decide How To Feel About Boehner's Failed Plan B

Right-wing media have inconsistently responded to House Speaker John Boehner's (R-OH) failed attempt to pass his proposed "Plan B" to resolve the so-called "fiscal cliff" standoff, including praising conservative Republicans who opposed the measure, expressing regret that the measure didn't pass, questioning the viability of Boehner's speakership, and blaming President Obama for the plan's failure, despite Obama's concessions to the GOP.

Boehner’s “Plan B” Doesn’t Help the GOP

Scott Rasmussen

President Obama and congressional Democrats are still winning the messaging battle in the debate over the impending “fiscal cliff.”

Republican House Speaker John Boehner tried to change that with a fallback position extending tax cuts for everyone except those making more than a million dollars a year and letting the scheduled spending cuts go through. As I write this, the vote on Boehner’s “Plan B” has not been taken, but it doesn’t really matter. Either way, Republicans will end up as losers in the court of public opinion.

That’s true even though raising taxes on millionaires is supported by 62 percent of voters nationwide. Boehner’s plan fails to accomplish the speaker’s goal of showing that Republicans are willing to raise taxes on the rich, however.

Why? Because 59 percent of voters also want to see taxes raised on those who earn more than $250,000 a year. In other words, the president can continue his rhetoric unchanged, and people still will side with Obama over Boehner.

What Americans Should Learn From the 'Republican Apocalypse'

What may finally consume the House Republicans is their boundless contempt for the American public -- a contempt bluntly demonstrated in their refusal to consider any reasonable compromise with President Obama to avoid the so-called "fiscal cliff" on Dec. 31. They know from the election results (and every poll) that the public believes taxes should be raised on the wealthy. They know that the public wants bipartisan compromise. And they know that the approval rating of the House Republicans, in contrast to the president's upwardly trending numbers, are veering toward historic lows.

Moreover, they claim to believe that the major tax hikes and spending cuts that will occur on Jan. 1, if negotiations fail, will be ruinous for the American and perhaps the world economy.(And never mind that this concern validates Keynesian economics, flatly contradicting their professed ideology.) Failure to achieve a deal may result in a renewed recession or worse.

Yet the majority of Republican members adhere so blindly to their far-right ideology that on Thursday evening, they humiliated their own leadership by refusing to support Speaker John Boehner's "Plan B" -- and effectively scuttled negotiations between the House leadership and the White House. Boehner thought a bill to increase taxes only on households earning more than $1 million annually would pass the House, as Majority Leader Eric Cantor confidently announced. "We're going to have the votes," he said on Thursday afternoon. Several hours later the House leaders cancelled the roll call on the tax bill, admitting that they didn't have the votes.

This embarrassing episode -- the "Mayan Apocalypse" of the Republicans Party -- demonstrates again why they are unfit for the responsibilities of national office.

The bible does speak on aliens numerous times. It's evident you haven't read it. All through the torah. From God saying that humans are his greatest creation to a chariot of fire descending from the sky. In every religion, they speak of aliens in one form another. Most peoples problem with the biblical/alien thing is trying to differentiate fallen angels & aliens. Genesis 6;4 states not in these words that angels fell from heaven, & dicided to lay with women & in doing so had babies in which they call the nephilim. A race of giants by my understanding whom we call the greek gods. Point is read & research before you judge someone by their faiths & beliefs.
Correction: Some insane people like to read aliens into scripture.

Big difference.
