Barack Obama, our next President

Malians welcome French intervention

In Bamako, Mali's windswept capital, people are talking of nothing else but the French intervention in the North of their country.

The operation by French forces to stop a rebel advance towards the capital has won their hearts. Before the French intervened residents of Bamako were living in fear of the rebels overrunning their country's weak army and reaching the capital in a short time.

"I salute the French for coming to our aid," Mariam Coulibally, said balancing a heavy basket of grocery on her head. "God knows where we would have been if they had not arrived in time," she added.

<quoted text>Actually, now that you mention it, that part of the world is rich in rare earth minerals.
So from an economic standpoint, it is of strategic importance.
By what right does anyone or any country have the right to go and take by force what natural resources (someone elses) that they want, killing, maiming and creating hatred along the way, calling it their 'strategic interest'?

Let's say that the law abiding of this country were all disarmed and the entire Constitution openly dissolved.{{{shudder}}}

What will you do? if another country decided that we had 'strategic interests' for them- all the natural resources that we have locked up and not using they decide they want and proceed to invade, occupy & take them (like we do to everyone else.)

Then all the whiney babies who don't like guns would really wish they had one.

Not having guns does not make society more civilized.

At least you admit Obama is following in Bush's footsteps when it comes to war strategies and foreign policy.
But Iraq is no longer an issue and the media rarely reports any news on Obama's wars. That's the difference.
Obama's wars?

and if Iraq is no longer an issue, then let's hear no more about it. for any reason. the college profs are teaching our kids the truth of it, so no point in us even discussing it in the terms of ideology.

Hitler's mother may have been a jew.

And if you believe money was the only factor for going after them, then you'd have to explain why they comprised under 50% of his victims.

As for Catholics, the Churches helped the nazis and in the case of Catholics, even recognized Hitler.

Perhaps I would not, but others would.

In many states and localities, local police would not cooperate with gun confiscation, nor would the governors call out the National Guard for that purpose.

Use of the military for gun confiscation would be unconstitutional and a political disaster.

All of this is academic because gun control legislation is going nowhere.

You quit? Really? Who took over for you?

I think we can see who is the one that is easily manipulated. Those darn wealthy people! They are all fanatics and you are just a mainstream all around intellectual and fair good guy.

Okay, now the real truth.

The House intended to streamline Federal Emergency Management Agency regulations allowing FEMA to make repairs that would be less expensive than traditional agency trailers.

A $60.4 billion package passed by the Senate in December included $188 million for an Amtrak expansion project with an indirect link to Sandy.

(Amtrak?)

The Senate bill was overpriced, full of pork and swelled the federal deficit because other government programs weren't being cut to cover the costs of the legislation.

(other programs weren't being cut to cover the cost?)

It had to go back to the Senate for approval since the old bill expired January 3.

"An emergency funding bill should focus on the emergency needs of the victims, not the needs of politicians," said Indiana Sen. Dan Coats, the senior Republican on Senate Appropriations subcommittee on homeland security. "Loading up a massive $60.4 billion package with unrelated projects and earmarks for other states is not the way we should use taxpayer dollars."

http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2013/01/12/fi...

Loading up massive spending packages with unrelated projects and earmarks is customarily the way Democrats waste our tax dollars.

Republicans in the House voted to pass the bill that was on the table with only 67 holding out for a less expensive alternative.

And since Republicans control the House, you have no argument.

They are allowed to sail between US ports.

Many vessels will stop at more than one port & load & unload cargo.

I just like that kind of reasoning and wanted to repeat it.
