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

Gaddafi, a fierce opponent of fundamentalist Wahhabist/Salafist Islam “faced several armed uprisings and coup attempts before— and in the West there was no public clamor for his head when he crushed them.”(The same, too, can be said of the numerous uprisings and assassination attempts carried out by the Syrian Muslim Brothers against the Assads, all of which were crushed without raising much of an outcry in the West, until now.)
Rejecting a single factor explanation that NATO intervened to secure access to Libyan oil, Forte presents a multi-factorial account, which invokes elements of the hunt for profits, economic competition with China and Russia, and establishing US hegemony in Africa. Among the gains of the intervention, writes Forte, were:
by ideas of “resource nationalism;” 4) increasing the presence of AFRICOM in African affairs, in an attempt to substitute for the African Union and to entirely displace the Libyan-led Community of Sahel-Saharan States (CEN-SAD); 5) expanding the U.S. hold on key geostrategic locations and resources; 6) promoting U.S. claims to be serious about freedom, democracy, and human rights, and of being on the side of the people of Africa, as a benign benefactor; 7) politically stabilizing the North African region in a way that locked out opponents of the U.S.; and, 8) drafting other nations to undertake the work of defending and advancing U.S. political and economic interests, under the guise of humanitarianism and protecting civilians.
“Libya led by Gaddafi (had) fought against Al Qaeda years before it became public enemy number one in the U.S.”
You're defending Gaddafi???

Even Dweeb isn't that stupid.(He might be)

Read it and weep, Bronx loser.

""Shortly after his inauguration in 1981, Libya was a strong priority for Ronald Reagan. Gaddafi was firmly anti-Israel and had supported extremist groups in the Palestinian territories and Syria. There were reports that Libya was attempting to become a nuclear power[3][3][4] and Gaddafi's occupation of Chad, which was rich in uranium, was a major fear for the United States. Gaddafi's alignment with the Soviet Union and his ambitions to set up a federation of Arab and Muslim states in North Africa were also alarming to US interests. Furthermore, then-Secretary of State Alexander M. Haig Jr. wanted to take pro-active measures against Gaddafi because he had been using former Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) operatives to help set up terrorist camps.[5]

After December 1985 Rome and Vienna airport attacks, which killed 19 and wounded around 140, Gaddafi indicated that he would continue to support the Red Army Faction, the Red Brigades, and the Irish Republican Army as long as the European governments supported anti-Gaddafi Libyans.[6] The Foreign Minister of Libya also called the massacres "heroic acts".[7]

After years of occasional skirmishes with Libya over Libyan territorial claims to the Gulf of Sidra, the United States contemplated a military attack to strike targets within the Libyan mainland. In March 1986, the United States, asserting the 12-nautical-mile (22 km; 14 mi) limit to territorial waters according to international law, sent a carrier task force to the region. Libya responded with aggressive counter-maneuvers on 24 March that led to the Gulf of Sidra incident.

On 5 April 1986, Libyan agents bombed "La Belle" nightclub in West Berlin, killing three people and injuring 229 people who were spending the evening there. West Germany and the United States obtained cable transcripts from Libyan agents in East Germany who were involved in the attack.""

So, why do you want to prevent these women from obtaining abortions? Or is it that you believe in the sanctity of life only if they're white babies that can provide the white childless couples with a white little bundle of joy?
You and Jane and the rest of you misogynists need to get real and face reality.
Apparently, being a "baby mama" is now a status symbol. There's a new reality show coming out to prove it.

With all the babies being born out of wedlock, 75% to be exact, and most, if not all, on some kind of welfare, abortion doesn't seem to be the issue in this case.

You liberals can pay for abortions all you want and pay for all these baby mama's chillins' all you want.

But if we turned off the money spigot, the problem would more than likely take care of itself.

Go figure.
Exit polls indicated that President Obama won on this issue in November.
Running against a "do nothing republican congress" worked for President Truman in 1948 and for President Obama.

Former President Bill Clinton said Wednesday that it was hard for him to comprehend resistance to measures meant to curb the proliferation of high-capacity magazines and the weapons that use them.
"I grew up in this hunting culture, but this is nuts," Clinton said at the International Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, in a speech recorded by the Associated Press. "Why does anybody need a ... 30-round clip for a gun?"
As president, Clinton signed an assault weapons ban into law in 1994. It expired in 2004, proving largely ineffective in preventing gun violence over the decade.

HE doesn't have to worry about thugs breaking into his house, raping his wife and kid (well, not that I think he has to worry about that to begin with), killing others and doing whatever at the mercy of the perpetrators.

Liberals want to leave everybody at the mercy of the government. At the mercy of people who can pull you over at any time, treat you like crapola and call you a "nut" if you object. I don't know which side the police will be on in the future war, but I find it very hard to believe that they will willingly kill hundreds of thousands of people in order to "disarm" them and avoid more school shootings.

Also, have you guys sen all the liberal politicians that suddenly; are "hunters"? Soon Dennis Kucinich will come out and say he needs to hunt food for himself. I met a guy yesterday who started talking about hunting. It's very easy to make them a fool since you know they are lying and just trying to sweeten the pie. Simply ask them when they hunted last time and where and what. I can guarantee that the need to change the topic will ensue soon. ANd even if they DID hunt, so what?? What does that have to do with the second amendment?? Nothing!!

Liberals are the sour grapes that never go away:

*They always want to tax you more,(YOU of course not them).

*They never fail to tell everybody else what is wrong with them ("racist", "nut", "psycho", "take the meds", "bigot", "white supremacist"), but they never admit any mistakes themselves.

Finally, now liberals :LOVE LOVE LOVE L-O-V-E that Obama is killing kids every day in Pakistan by the drone. I have told this top people who voted Obama and the only thing they say is "they are terrorists", or "you are just mad you looooost"..

When your thugs have disarmed and killed tens of thousands of americans and subjugated the rest, how nasty will you guys become to your new serfs? I don't intend to find out.

Options are limiting themselves by the hour now. The nasty globalists are not going to stop until they have all power and the liberals simply LOVE it

Agree on anti depressants. Excersise is a better cure. They make many people suicidal.
BTW, how did she get her hair caught in a conveyor belt? Just wondering.
