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 ...

Why should we have foreign students obtain their education here and then leave? Is it not better to encourage them to remain here?
We open our university doors to them so they can help themselves. That's why the governments of the countries they come from pay the cost of educating them here.
If they want to stay, and they satisfy all the requirements of their home country, and the requirements of becoming a resident of the United States, then they are welcome.
But, our population is so goddam ignorant, today we can't support our modern economy without them.
So, we're back to the question:

Why do we need aliens when we have 300 goddam millin people already here and the most expensive education system in the world ready to educate them?

(You have to know the difference between the words "need" and "want" to answer that question.)

14-year-old in Henry County, Georgia unintentionally shot and killed his 15-year-old brother early Saturday morning while playing with his mother’s gun, according to police. The Atlanta Journal Constitution reports that charges may be brought against the teenager and his mother, who have not yet been named. Though the mother left the handgun unloaded, the brothers were apparently still able to use it.

Thinkprogress! Now that's a perfect place for you lily. They will tell you exactly what you want to hear whether it is true or not. Using that website is a glittering testimonial to your lack of moderation, loon.

Joe Scarborough said on Sunday that Republicans owe their majority in the House of Representatives to gerrymandering.
The MSNBC host was part of the roundtable on "Meet the Press." He lamented the loss of the Republican party's popular appeal, and recalled how William F. Buckley criticized certain elements of the conservative movement.
"That has to happen again with this party because it’s getting smaller and smaller," Scarborough said. "In this debate, we actually have conservative thinkers, talking about Ronald Reagan being a RINO — a Republican in name only, because he supported an assault weapons ban. They keep pushing themselves closer and closer to the cliff."

Joe Scarborough should step up to the plate and take an active role in politics instead of schmoozing with his morning menagerie.

Powell was a good Sec. of State, not a perfect one.
Same goes for Con. Rice and Hillary Clinton.
George Bush boycotted the Republican convention in 2012.
By 2012 the party had move so far to the right that G W B was liberal?
George Bush added prescription drug coverage to Medicare and had a proposed guest worker program.

Americans as a people are fairly free from racial prejudice. This is certainly true when Americans are compared to people living in the rest of the world. But you would never know that, and certainly wouldn't believe it, if all your information came from American television.
There are few real racists in our country, relatively speaking. They are considered wackos, out of mainstream thought and belief. We Americans believe that all men are created equal. Christians are commanded to love one another as brothers. The only way we can reunite this nation is through brotherly love.
And that is exactly why the Democrats are raising the specter of racism in this political race. The only way they can gain political power is through exploiting social division. Right now the Democrats and the mainstream media are vigorously conducting a broad-spectrum campaign of racial division across America.
http://www.americanthinker.com/2012/09/the_ob...
Almost sounds like a Democrat version of the "Southern Strategy", doesn't it? Keep racial friction front and center even if it's the Big Lie and divides the country just for political gain?
The beat goes on...
Do you somehow think that LGBT has a letter in there for black? I asked you a simple question, but forget about it--what your full of is neither credible not the milk of human kindness.

The Waxturd sockpuppet doesn't know that Henry Ford was a huge supporter of Hitler??

Or that Ford and GM controlled 70% of the German auto market before WWII??

Or that GM and Ford factories in Germany were the 'arsenal of fascism', just as much as they claimed to be the 'arsenal of deomcracy'??

Or how IBM provided the business machines that allowed the German meticulous record keeping in their slaughter of Jews and Gypsies in Europe??

Capatilism has no patriotism to nations. Capitalism is all about profits for the Corporation and shareholders.

The American companies supported Hitler for the same reason they give money to both Dems and Repubs.

They like to hedge their bets. What if Hitler had won?? The capitalists didn't care, so long as they profited from both sides in the war.

You're really stupid if you were unaware of this, Waxturd.

Apparently the Ivy League thing was a bigger lie than we originally thought..........

Beyoncé sang the national anthem at yesterday’s inauguration ceremony for President Obama and received overwhelming praise for her performance, ranging from Business Insider (“It was just amazing”) to TMZ (“f*cking awesome”).
Beyoncé’s Instagram photo of herself in a recording studio with members of the Marine Corps Band.
But to close observers, it seems evident that the performer was not singing live. To press seated just below the podium, in front of the “President’s Own” Marine Corps Band, it was evident that the band wasn’t actually playing during the song—even though band director Colonel Michael J. Colburn was conducting energetically and the band members mimicked blowing into their instruments. Separately, at one point during her performance, Beyoncé removed her earpiece.
A hint as to the actual origins of the version Beyoncé sang came from her own hand: On January 20, the day before the ceremony, Beyoncé posted pictures to her Instagram account that appeared to show her in a recording studio. In one, she holds a copy of the sheet music to “The Star Spangled Banner” in front of a microphone attached to a recording device, and in another she sits in front of recording equipment while members of the Marine Corps Band stand clutching sheet music behind her.
Miming along to a pre-recorded track isn’t unheard of at inaugural ceremonies. At President Obama’s 2009 inauguration, cold weather and wind meant that a live performance by cellist Yo-Yo Ma and violinist Itzhak Perlman had to be nixed in favor of a recording. But there are no previously known cases of a singer lip syncing the national anthem during an inaugural performance.
There is nothing surrounding Obama that isn't rife with fraud.

Obama is a candidate for the biggest hoax ever perpetrated on human society in the history of civilization.
Hoaxes always cause disaster. We won't be the first nation in the history of civilization to be exempted from that rule.

you guys are really hitting it out the park. everyone here will be so impressed with your research skills.
Taking 10 seconds to look into the foundation for a crazy argument like you were making is better than debating an idiot who makes assertions based on irrelevant notions.

So what the heck were you trying to say? I don't think you even know. Was it that rich people that dies in 1913 before WWII are somehow indicitive of the issues today, but tied to the NAZI Party, so that makes thing relevant in your mind?

How contorted! You liberals never cease to amaze.

I love how Liberals try to eradicate their racist past!! The facts are the Liberal racists of 60s are today 21st century racists!! Can a Liberal tell me how Blacks have benefited under a Democratic party?
Since the 1960s, blacks have experienced a decline in legitimacy and educational achievement and increases in criminal activity and drug abuse. But they have gained Obamaphones and a token in the White House.

So, what's not to like?

Even the token is shifting his focus from blacks to homosexuals.

While you nitwits dwell on the foggy past, the President is moving the nation FORWARD without you.

That's how irrelevant you nitwits have become.

You speak of your party's past support for all Americans, while denying your party's complete dependence on the older, white evangelical voters for the past 30 years.

Your Party stopped representing all of America when Reagan was elected. That's when the 'southern strategy' of racism and divisiveness became the Republiclown mantra.

You are now reaping what you have sown.

I hope it chokes you.

Again, you don't tell the whole story. Black Americans were already swayed to the Democrat Party by the late 1930s because of the New Deal and the Great Depression. Thousands had already fled the South by the 1960s.
Accusing the Republican Party of being against civil rights based on one Republican who supported the Constitution AND civil rights but believed it to be a states' rights issue instead of the federal government's is just part of the Big Lie and dismisses decades of legislation passed by Republicans precisely to ensure civil rights.
The majorty, if not all, of black Americans had already switched loyalites when big government came on the scene in the 1930s.
That's the problem of why we are where we are today. Not one Republican who has become the liberal's "straw man" to excuse their own sins of the past.
