Barack Obama, our next President

WASHINGTON — Weapons from the botched federal gun-trafficking operation were used to kill 16 Mexican teenagers, according to a report.
The youths were attending a party in Ciudad Juarez in January 2010 when they were killed by weapons from the Fast and Furious operation, Spanish-language television network Univision reported yesterday.
By Cora Currier, ProPublica
Yesterday, the Obama administration invoked executive privilege to prevent the release of certain documents to Congress related to Operation Fast and Furious, the arms-trafficking sting gone awry that came to light last year.(As we’ve detailed, federal agents lost track of hundreds of guns they sold to suspected gun smugglers, many of which later turned up at crime scenes in Mexico).
The fall-out from the failed operation has been an ongoing battle between Attorney General Eric Holder and congressional Republicans, in particular Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., chair of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform. Issa wants documents related to the Department of Justice’s investigation of the operation.
THESE PEOPLE DO NOT GIVE A DAMN ABOUT KIDS!
ALL THEY WANT TO DO IS GO AFTER THE PEOPLE THAT OBEY THE
LAW AND TAKE THEIR GUNS AWAY FROM THEM!
IF YOU OUTLAW GUNS
ONLY THE OUTLAWS
WILL HAVE
THEM!!!!!!!!
WAKE UP USA!
“When the people fear the government there is tyranny, when the government fears the people there is liberty.”
― Thomas Jefferson
You have a right to bear arms.

The Government has a right to determine which arms you are allowed to bear.

Watch and see, nitwit.

The times they are a'changin.

Soon the only place you'll see AR-15's is in a museum or book.

NO CIVILIAN HAS A NEED FOR AN ASSAULT WEAPON.

I love it when you uninformed dumbass right whiners spout stuff you are obviously wrong about.
1) Obama worked for a private church group as a community organizer.
2) Obama worked for a private law firm as a lawyer.
3) Obama worked for a Private university as a lecturer.
4) Obama was self employed as a author & wrote a couple of best selling books.
Four examples of why you are so uninformed.
My God, are all you right whiners this frickin stupid?
Thanks for confirming this Bozo of yours has no business experience. It's no wonder our economy is so flocked up.

You call that "work". You obviously, never had a real job either, or you wouldn't make such an ignorant post, Dumb Dave.

Yes i agree!I also hope and pray
that the USA Military will fight for WE THE PEOPLE as the Obama administration is Hell Bent on over throwing the USA Goverment!To all the
Military and Law Enforcement please join http://oathkeepers.org/oath/
Oath Keepers is a non-partisan association of currently serving military, veterans, peace officers, and firefighters who will fulfill the oath we swore to support and defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic, so help us God.
Our oath is to the Constitution, not to the politicians, and we will not obey unconstitutional (and thus illegal) and immoral orders, such as orders to disarm the American people or to place them under martial law and deprive them of their ancient right to jury trial.
We Oath Keepers have drawn a line in the sand. We will not “just follow orders.”
Our motto is “Not on our watch!”
If you, the American people, are forced to once again fight for your liberty in another American Revolution, you will not be alone. We will stand with you.
There is at this time a debate within the ranks of the military regarding their oath. Some mistakenly believe they must follow any order the President issues. But you can rest assured that many others in the military do understand that their loyalty is to the Constitution, and understand what that means.
The mission of Oath Keepers is to vastly increase their numbers. We are in a battle for the hearts and minds of our own troops. To win that battle, Oath Keepers will use written and video testimony of active duty military, veterans (especially combat vets), and peace officers to reach, teach, and inspire our brothers in arms in the military and police to fulfill their oaths and stand as guardians of the Republic.
If you are currently in the military, are a veteran, or are a peace officer, please submit your written and/or video testimony on your oath, so you can help us win that battle for hearts and minds. Your submission may be anonymous.
Guardians of the Republic, fulfill your oath. Join us.
Funny that a treasonous bas tard thinks of himself as a 'guardian of the republic'.

The Gov't has your name and address already. You will be among the first to die if you attempt anything stupid, like rising up against the duly elected and legal Government.

You'll find out just how tiny a hateful minority you are when your neighbors take you down..

Go for it. We need your white hateful blood to refresh the tree of liberty.

Either way, you'll lose.

Grey is a Vietnam war vet, nobraina/galt is a peepee pants baby hiding in his cellar with his musket waiting for civil war!!

Heard a discussion about insurance policies and licensing requirements for gun owners that was quite interesting. Tenzing brought that up a few days ago and I think it holds merit.
The insurance companies would assess risk and set premiums accordingly. To drive a car you have to take a driving test; to buy life insurance, you have to pass a physical test. If you get a speeding ticket, your insurance goes up. In Canada there is a one month waiting period, a person has to take a gun safety class and ones spouse or exspouse has to approve if have a weapon or not. Kind of cools peoples jets.
However, would they take on the liability of paying out for murder or mass murder?

Doesn't it say "well regulated militia"? What is regulated now?
A person can buy a gun and give it to someone else, or sell it to anyone. I heard there is a shortage of ammo, these nuts are hoarding, perhaps there should be limits on ammo purchases. i.e. Holmes was able to buy quite a bit online.
Ultimately, I hope they reissue the assault weapons bans and magazines to kill hundreds with one press of the trigger. No one needs that. Period. Get rid of them, ban the manufacture of them entirely. Make them illegal to possess.

This is worth repeating because it is at the core of many of the problems we are facing today.
"72% of black babies are born to unmarried mothers according to government statistics.
"Children of unmarried mothers of any race are more likely to perform poorly in school, go to prison, use drugs, be poor as adults, & have their own children out of wedlock."
This is precisely the pink elephant in the room, and it keeps getting bigger and bigger.
what a difference in replies--your SANE, COMMON SENSE answer vs that of Looney Lefty Lily who plays the victim card rather than state the obvious: keep your legs together or use your government sponsored birth control. then you don't have to either have an abortion to KILL for convenience or raise another government sponsored child in poverty.

Waters, Frank and Schumer were in front of a camera everytime you turned around defending F&F for years before the bottom fell out.
Bush's warnings and the Congressional hearing under the Bush administration to try and rein in F&F were virtually ignored by the media.
A Democrat congressman accused Republicans and the investigation itself as a "public lynching" of F&F's Raines.
Pretending not to see isn't an excuse.
President gets the blame!

Cant have it both ways ...

Republican and Democratic Presidents both have taken credit for good economic times.

Who are you sponging off of now?
Stupid little Waxturd sockpuppet.

The killer in CO was a right wing skinhead!!

The kid in CT was a right wing gun nut, just like his mother, a Registered Republiclown.

Ever notice how all these killers come fro right wing gun nut families.

Right back to the two at Columbine, who used family owned weapons!1

Glad I could correct your stupidity, Waxturd.

You're such a moonbat liar!!

Ok, dufus....
It was a foregone conclusion that the United States was going to invade Japan and physically defeat it without consideration of the cost, in either US lives or Japanese lives. It was anticipated that there would be in excess of one million American casualties, and this was not a deterrent.
So, please tell us what your estimate is of the number of Japanese that would be killed when the United States invaded Japan and physically crushed the country.
10 million? 20 million? 30 million?
Then, compare that to the number of people killed by the two bombs that convinced Japan to surrender and end the war.
Well? How many Japanese lives were saved by the use of the two bombs?
... it's a simple arithmetic problem, dufus. What's your answer?
Operation Meetinghouse air raid on March 9-10 1945 of Tokyo was estimated as the single most destructive raid in history. 100,000 people are estimated to have died in the resulting firestorm causing more instant deaths than either Hiroshima or Nagasaki. The estimated death count seems low considering 1.5 million people lived in the 16 square mile area destroyed by the fire. Paraphrased of course. Them was some stubborn people. They would never have surrendered without the bomb.

since news media never report what Race To The Top's actual requirements are, or even that a nationwide wave of school closings and teacher firings is underway, much of the public, and even many teachers and their unions are unable to make the connection between federal policies and their local school crises. Corporate media point helpfully instead to corrupt local officials, greedy organized teachers insufficient reliance on the invisible hand of the free market. News reports in many areas are full of stories about school districts whose certification is imperiled because of looming loss of federal funds, but the public is offered few clues as to exactly WHY the funds are lacking or WHAT measures the district will have to take to get them restored. The fact is, Race To The Top is consciously designed to punish school districts that try to protect their educational assets, and rewards those who eviscerate and sell them off.

President Obama's Race To The Top then, is the direct cause of our national wave of school closings and mass teacher firings from Philly to Atlanta and Los Angeles to Rhode Island. It was local implementation of Obama's Race To The Top mandates that forced Chicago teachers out on strike last fall, and it's reluctance to carry out these measures that now imperils education funding in cities as large as Las Vegas.

The Chicago teachers class action lawsuit is a good thing. But the courts have been captive to the far right wing for a long time now, and are not likely to issue quick and sweeping rulings that upset things as they are. In the end, the only thing that will begin to save public education, that will halt the wave of school closings and teacher firings is mass mobilization on a scale not seen in fifty years. Right now, that seems almost as unlikely as corporate school reform being reversed or halted by the federal court.

What passes for black leadership these days, the descendants of the old line “civil rights” organizations are firmly on the corporate education reform bandwagon. Bill Gates, for example, delivered the 2011 keynote at the National Urban League's annual meeting. The NAACP and similar outfits are no better, all preferring to do the bidding of their funders and their president, over the interests of ordinary black families and their children. Even teachers unions are handicapped. Unlike the Chicago Teachers Union most haven't spent the last few years forging deep ties with organized forces in their school communities, and lack even a tradition of standing up for their own members they way labor unions ought to.
