OK - I know your head is thicker that the vaults at Fort Knox, but I'll try.
Obama and the Democrat Party leanings are more European and "socialistic" than America has traditionally had. Your allies are socialists and communists and it's no secret, many in your party of "Democrats" (you really should pick a new name) do not like capitalism.
Socialists/Communists have indeed told people where they can live and what they can do for work. They even mandate vacation time and work hours like in France. Carol provided one example and I can tell you about a friend of mine that is a Cardiovascular Surgeon. He is from Germany and while in Medical School there, was told what specialty he could go into which he did not like, so he came to the USA and is happy here due to our freedom. Similar to Carol's example that went over your head, my German friend came here due to our Freedom and the system you Democrats are trying to eliminate.
Do you know anyone from the former U.S.S.R. or Europe that experienced such a situation or limit of freedom? You must live in a bubble and not be very educated.
I know another person that left the USA for work related reasons and does not want to come back due to Obama and the Democrats class warfare - tax aspirations.
Obama and the Democrats have also passed new regulations that make doing business more difficult. I have seen them first hand in my business an cannot believe the Democrats passed such useless, stupid rules and I could see why people would just say forget it if trying to start a business.
Why are you so stupid, PDUPONT? Listen to Carol a little harder. She can teach you people of limited intellect a few things.
Name one piece of legislation thst made your business more difficult.

The trouble with Afghanistan is that it had/has no functioning government, and the Taliban WAS the government.
You should probably explore OBL's relationship with the Taliban before posting such nonsense. And OBL was moving through certain other Muslim nations in comfort and ease.

Additionally, Iraq now seems on the road to he!! according to officials in nearby nations. Pandora's box!!!

I have been involved in or started 5 businesses since Obama was first elected and I haven't noticed anything other than going to monthly fed tax "contributions" instead of quarterly and that actually married up better with my cash flow structure.

You must be a liberal. All liberals are racist. Democrats founded the KKK.

Democrats do everything for political gain.

Democrats "fairness" is to destroy the minorities and they believe them thanks to the liberal lying abusive reporting media.

<quoted text>WELL, CRACKER, HERE'S WHAT I THINK: I THINK WE WENT OFF THE FISCAL CLIFF 12 YEARS AGO WHEN GEORGE BUSH JUNIOR WAS SELECTED PRESIDENT. NONETHELESS, HERE'S THE FORMULA YOU..(BORINGLY, REPEATEDLY).. SEEK:

1. FIRST, THE MILITARY MUST BE TOTALLY DISBANDED. NOT JUST A FEW PARTS OF IT, THE WHOLE THING. TO REPLACE IT, STATES WILL BE ENTITLED TO MAINTAIN MILITIAS WHICH CAN BE ASSEMBLED WHENEVER SOMEBODY RIDES INTO TOWN ON HORSEBACK ANNOUNCING AN IMMINENT THREAT.

2. END ALL CURRENT "PREMEPTIVE" WARS AND DENY BENEFITS TO CONTRACTORS AND INDIVIDUALS WHO PROFITED FROM THEM.

3. DEFUND THE CIA AND NSA AND PRIVATIZE THEM.

4. FEDERAL TAX RATE, CORPORATE TAX RATE, CAPITAL GAINS RATE IS NOW 50% FROM THIS POINT FORWARD. STATES ARE FREE TO SET THEIR TAXES WHEREVER THEY WISH. THERE WILL BE NO EXEMPTIONS.

5. EACH FAMILY MAY PRODUCE OR ADOPT TWO CHILDREN, NO MORE.

6. THE ENERGY INDUSTRY, THE FINANCIAL INDUSTRY, THE PHARMACEUTICAL INDUSTRY, AND THE INSURANCE INDUSTRY WILL BE NATIONALIZED.

THAT'S ABOUT IT FOR ME, HOW'D I DO? I'M PRETTY SURE WE END UP WITH A SURPLUS AND THE ASSHOLES WILL ALL BE FLYING TO BELGIUM WHERE THEY WILL FIND ABOUT THE SAME THING, HAPPILY.
You lost because you forgot the spending problem.

Food stamps and welfare to ghetto liberal lazy democrats!!!

Your solution is therefore proven wrong!

Dave,
I see you're still having trouble connecting the dots.
The killing of Osama bin Laden would have been all but impossible without a massive military build-up in Afghanistan.
That hardware and intelligence gathering network was put in place long before the current ditherer-in-chief strolled onto the scene.
Don't make me take you apart again, Dave.

That's absurd. But it is to be expected coming from our resident moron bedpan changer.

A small team of Seals killed OBL in Pakistan.

What did all our forces in Afganistan have to do with it??

Nothing!!

The Afgan War was a failure because Bush blew it. He had a great chance to get OBL at Tora Bora, but blew it.

Bush's intel was a disaster. Bush was out of office almost 4 years, yet you stupidly want to give him credit for getting OBL??

You're even more ignorant than I thought.

Obama rebuilt the intel, and they found OBL. End of story.

You've run away from me frequently, even pleading for a truce.

Let's hear some of your 'take me apart' bullcrap concerning me.

I'll be waiting, you loser.
