Barack Obama, our next President

Full story: Hampton Roads Daily Press

"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 ...

Former Adviser: Obama as 'Ruthless and Indifferent to Rule of Law' as Bush

http://www.commondreams.org/headline/2013/01/...
Americans 'unaware of the scale of the drone program ... and the destruction it has caused in their name'

A former security adviser for Barack Obama now says the Pentagon's targeted drone program is counter-productive, is "encouraging a new arms race," and has killed far more civilians than has been acknowledged.

ObamaCare's Health-Insurance Sticker Shock
http://online.wsj.com/article/SB1000142412788...

Although President Obama repeatedly claimed that health-insurance premiums for a family would be $2,500 lower by the end of his first term, they are actually about $3,000 higher—a spread of about $5,500 per family.

Really??

Let's hear your definition of 'the American way of life'??

Based on your posts, you harbor hatred for all other Americans, teachers, cops, firemen, union members (which all of the aforementioned are), bankers, WalMart workers, blacks, hispanics, women, asians, etc., etc., etc.

So your definition is for all others in America to suffer, while you keep colecting your Social Security and Medicare??

Not prudent, son. Not gonna happen, son.

Good news is you'll be dead soon.

Wrong.

Bush's complete destruction of the American economy forced Americans onto food stamps, as Bush and Rmoney exported American jobs by the hundreds of thousands.

That was the deal Bush made with China;

You loan us money for the wars, we'll export our fsactory jobs to you.

In this, Bush laid the foundations for the collapse, which happened on his watch!!

DEal with it, ya freakin' loser!!

And you wonder why most Americans still hold Bush responsible for th eDepression he created.

NRA Reaps Profits From the Internet Ammo Sales It Made Possible

Today the NRA receives millions of dollars from online sales of ammunition, high-capacity ammunition magazines, and other accessories through the Round-Up Program, created by top NRA benefactor Larry Potterfield. Potterfield is founder and head of MidwayUSA, which claims to stock "[j]ust about everything for shooting, reloading, gunsmithing and hunting," including ammunition and high-capacity ammunition magazines. The Round-Up Program encourages buyers to "round-up" their purchase to the nearest dollar with the difference going to the NRA.

Potterfield credits McClure-Volkmer with helping make his financial fortune possible, stating on the company's website:

By 1987, we were doing about $5 million in business, selling mostly to dealers. The product lines were bulk components and cartridge boxes. The Volkmer-McClure [sic] law was enacted in October 1987, which removed the restriction of shipping brass and bullets to FFL holders only. Midway immediately began selling directly to consumers, in addition to selling to dealers.

The NRA's lobbying arm, the Institute for Legislative Action (NRA-ILA) has received nearly $9.3 million dollars from the Round-Up Program. On its website, MidwayUSA states that Round-Up Program contributions from the company total nearly $7.2 million since 1992. Total Round-Up contributions (MidwayUSA's and those of other companies participating in the Round-Up Program) to the NRA are nearly $9.3 million.(One mass shooter who took part in the NRA's Round-Up Program through MidwayUSA was concealed carry permit holder George Sodini, who in August 2009 opened fire at an LA Fitness Center in Collier, Pennsylvania, killing three women and wounding nine others before turning the gun on himself and taking his own life.)

Colorado is currently 1 of only 13 states that utilizes a duplicative state background check for the transfer of firearms. The CBI InstaCheck, which can in no way quantify the results of their system, unnecessarily denies the right to purchase a firearm to thousands of Colorado citizens. A study performed by the U.S. Department of Justice showed that Colorado had the highest percentage of reversals on appeal, nationwide, for the right to transfer a firearm at 58.8% from 2000 to 2009 and the highest in 2009 with 75.8%. This means that a Colorado resident could be denied the right to purchase a firearm due to incomplete information or an issue as trivial as having forgotten to pay a speeding ticket.

so what could keep someone from voting in some states should not keep someone from buying a gun?

Yes. iraq was invaded for no reason at all. Afghanistan was invaded for a specific reason.

If there was any military effort I applaud bushie on, it was Afghanistan.

Iraq is only of strategic importance if the US can maintain a presence there. But that's still no reason for the invasion.

You want to know what the height of ignorance is??????
Being in the oil industry (at least what ypou claimed) and being too stupid top know that there was an executive order banning drilling off our East & West coasts.
Your buddy George W Bush upheld this ban for over 7 years of his Presidency.
Gee was that beyond the Executive Branch.??? Ummmm let me think........
What do you have to say about that, Mr Pretend Oilman?
Now, you want to talk about stem cell research?????
Good thing about Dweeb is that he's such an outrageios liar that everyone sees right through his stream of bullshit.

I posted several Executive Orders from BushII that had nothing to do with the Executive Branch yesterday, but he ran away rather than respond.

That's been his style.

He ignores well-documented proof of his ignorance, and continues to come back with the same, disproven charges.

In that, he's much like Carol or Nobraina.

They've been running the same batch of lies for over 4 years on this thread.

they get beat down, they wait a week or two and start again, with the same stupidity they've been busted for.

They can't win elections, so they must lie!!

Dweeb is a virtual newcomer.

Oh, not so. There is the opium production, drug routes and oil pipeline routes (and natural resources) that they have secured and want to keep.
Not 'winnable', and sustainable, I'd agree. Being there at all was folly. But staying there is pure folly. But stay we will. For the obvious reasons.
We went to Iraq for nothing but to secure the oil for big mega corporations.
Mission accomplished.
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.

Let's begin with the unfinished business of last week. There were two questions asked that nobody in the world has been able to answer, and nobody here on this site has answered. The closest anyone came to answering these questions was some link that gave a bunch of no-answers as to the location of Obama, and some other idiot gave the answer of the Treasury as a source of money.
Still, nobody knows where Obama was during the 7-hour battle between the United States and Al Qaeda, and still nobody knows where the money will come from to pay for Obama's government.
The Treasure isn't a source of money. The Treasury is a repository. Additionally, the Treasury is 16.5 TRILLION dollars in debt. There isn't any money there, anyway.
So, let's begin with the questions:
Where exactly was Obama during the 7-hour battle between Al Qaeda and the United States in Banghazi while the battle was being watched on a live feed in the White House?
And;
Where will the money come from to pay for Obama's government?
I'll be out of the ocuntry for a week or so, maybe only 5 days if everything goes well. I'll check the homework of you ignorant clowns when I get back. You ignorant Democrats, try not to fuck things up too much while the grownups are away.
Since you're the only one interested, when you find out, let us know!

Most of us are very much aware of the accelerated use of drones by this president.

For the ignorant dupes here, you being the leading candidate, Bush never signed an executive order giving instructions outside the Executive Branch of government. It never happened.
If you disagree, reference the executive order and provide the text within that is the instructions to entities or elements outside the Executive Branch of government.
... got a problem with that, don't you? That's because it never happened.
What you clowns are trying to do is institute a fascist dictatorship where the furher Obama can write his own laws to suit his whim.
Ain't gonna happen.
Now, how about you giving us the text of those executive orders that you mentioned, and tell us how they violated existing laws and/or the Constitution,...
thus giving Obama the ability to write executive orders violating existing laws and the Constitution.
No American citizen is obligated to obey any command/instruction/requiremen t/restriction from the government that isn't issued in the form of a law passed in accordance with the Constitution. The president is prohibited by the Constitution from issuing edicts to the population. That's the type of tyranical government we fought a war to free ourselves from. You'll have to fight and win a war to take that away from the American people. They've become used to the idea of not being anyone's subjects. They like limited government, and don't like the fascist dictatorship you Democrats have in mind for them.
When Obama signs an executive order writing his own whim into law, it won't be worth the paper it is written on, because....
No American citizen is obligated to obey any command/instruction/requiremen t/restriction from the government that isn't issued in the form of a law passed in accordance with the Constitution.
You first have to eliminate the Constitution and install a fascist dictatorship to make that happen.
lol! "...What you clowns are trying to do is institute a fascist dictatorship where the furher Obama can write his own laws to suit his whim...."

You're such a political dupe! In one sentence you claim bushie never did it and there's no proof, and in the next you claim Obama's won't work, even if there isn't any proof as well!

You're so screwed up you mix your personal opinionated politics with facts and you believe the entire slop because it makes you feel good.

You seem to think Social Security and Medicare are sustainable. Republicans want to reform both so they will still be viable programs for those 50 and under down the road.

This adminstration wants the easily fooled to believe the status quo is perfectly acceptable. You, for instance.

Liberals are the guilty ones when it comes to changing the "American Way of Life". They want Obama to fundamentally change it until it's totally unrecognizable.
