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

No, actually it's a great time to be drinking. An entire evening is about to be ruined by the ridiculous spectacle of smaller white men being crushed by bigger black ones. I mean it's as if we're celebrating the very thing we spend all day complaining about.
I'm off to go watch. I'll be sure to notice if they put all the smaller white guys on one team and the bigger black guys on the other.

Sheesh!

Pretty good observation.
The latest story is that the "sniper" took a troubled young returning vet with PTSD under wing and thought that taking him to range would be a good idea.
If that's so, I would wonder how the "sniper" lived to see four Iraq tours.
Or maybe they were all tipping a few brewskis?

Incorrect, funding comes from Congress, Command and Control rests with the President. That's how if a Gary Johnson had won the presidency, on his first day in office he could order all US troops and equipment home and nobody could do a thing to stop him.
The framers wrote in the Constitution that Congress has the power to declare war, to raise and support armies, and to repel invasions, but they also named the president as commander in chief, giving him the power to order the armed forces to defend the country.

It’s easy to understand Liberals/Democrats’ philosophy “What’s Good for American is Bad for Liberals” if you need evidence just look how the Liberal Media is trying to Spin this Bad Economic News as Positive!!
Oh now, there you go again. I think what the man was saying was, the Dow Jones is representative of business as a whole, that's why it's on the front page of every newspaper in the country. Now, admittedly, it doesn't seem like the man on the street is benefiting - which is, I think, what your saying - and that's true, but here's where your analysis falls apart. The reason for this is not what you imagine it is. The reason for this is that the interests of "business" are the opposite from the interests of "the people." It's as plain as the nose on your face... well, that's a bad example...

It's the dirty little secret of economics. Economic well-being for a small group of greedy individuals signifies economic doom for the much larger volume of individuals "below" them in the pecking order.

It's like Judaism in a way. When the very fabric of your being inextricably tied to the acquisition of money you tend to overlook the condition of others who are not so single-minded. By conflating money and happiness you change the fundamental meaning of the Purfuit of it.

Now you can't have it both ways, puppy, either the successes of individual investors is good and the "success" of "the people" is bad, or, the success of the people is elevated to at least equal value as the success of "business." As recent history demonstrates, the success of business operates in inverse degree to the success of the people. Particularly when the people can be convinced to vote and act against their own best interests. It's academic.

I recently saw a young white guy who was on his way to Oklahoma. He was carrying a suitcase and a ragged backpack and he was homeless too. I'm pretty sure he was dickless, but I couldn't be sure. Where was Obamalie for this young man, huh? Same place he was for the seven hours that the United States Ambassador to Benghazi was being paraded naked around the streets of the Libyan capital with a cowbell tied to his nuts.
Dickless? Well-acquainted with the walk, no doubt. It must suck being a small black guy, too dumb to outsmart anyone, too small to bully your way through.

Correct. Lawn mowers, hedge trimmers, and rakes as well. Fine workers.

Guest worker programs are the way to go.

Temecula is an anomaly, a city of about 100,000 that has experienced rapid growth in the last 20 years and does not have any hospital whatsoever at present.

Prefer college hockey over the NHL goon squad, although the NHL got better when they eliminated the red line. Hockey without the fighting would be much better.

I agree, no reason beyond the political price that would be paid doing it. That's why it won't get done with our two party system. Heck, your side refuses to even acknowledge four years of surpluses under Clinton.
Believe that there are a significant number of members within the current Republican House who would be willing to make the cuts necessary to balance the budget. That would of necessity include cuts in entitlements.

Funny I've never heard it voiced by anyone else. Least of all by anyone with a modicu of intelligence who knows the costs to the nation's economy and iits' people.
But then, it's hard to find folks quite as stupid as you, Nobraina.
No wonder you're such a loser!!
The cost of continued deficits and mounting debt is far worse.

Time to take a little bitter medicine to save the patient.

Actually, let me respond to that in a serious manner. Such issues should be left to family and friends of the mentally ill, not to the government. As to felons, they should not be released from prison if they present any danger of violence. Felony tax evaders certainly should not lose their right to bear arms.

Yeah right, if I were you I would have just let it ride__instead you make it worse.

Madden picks changed it's mind and currently favors the Niner's. Hah, no wonder they are always right.

I'm sticking with the Ravens by 3 in reg time.

Temecula can be found on google aszhole, that area has medical facilities to spare with more on the way__because MediCare patients can pay.

Don't you ever tire of getting it wrong???
