Barack Obama, our next President

Full story: Hampton Roads Daily Press

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.

A very stupid statement on your part. One of the most stupid yo've made.
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.

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.
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???

No, it requires a certain amount of courses in education. Child psychology,methods, child development, etc.
If you already have a degree, you can get a teaching certificate in secondary education in PA by taking a few education courses, student teach & pass the test.
Someone with a Ph.D. in physics and 30 years experience could not be hired to teach high school physics without taking a bunch of bullshit courses and student teaching under an idiot. That's a problem.

Plus, many school districts preferentially hire graduates of local teacher colleges instead of better out-of-state universities.

What's the difference between John McCain and a penis? When you say a penis is angry, you mean it's all swelled up so you can see the veins in its neck. When you say John McCain is angry you just mean he's a guy with tumor in his face and a squeaky voice.

Would a background check on Adam Lanza's mother changed the outcome of Sandy Hook? How 'bout if all of her weapons were registered? This "we have to do something even if its wrong" approach is what leads us to do things like invade Afghanistan.
But, what about the children?

Topic Reminder Service (TRS) is a publicly-funded non-political organization founded to update Forum Users with accurate factual reminders. This particular Topic could be - indeed has been - deemed out-of-date or "dead" since November 4th, 2008. However, persuant of common OPINION, it has remained one of the more-popular Topix to this day. At this point in time, over four years after the topic's origin and considering none of the facts will change for another four years (making for an estimated eight-year lifecycle), TRS is presenting the following reminders of FACT-

Barack Hussein Obama II is the 44th and current President of the United States. He is the first African American to hold the office. Obama is a graduate of Columbia University and Harvard Law School, where he was president of the Harvard Law Review.

Born in Honolulu, Hawaii USA on August 4, 1961, he served three terms representing the 13th District in the Illinois Senate from 1997 to 2004, running unsuccessfully for the United States House of Representatives in 2000.

He began his first presidential campaign in 2007, defeating Republican nominee John McCain in the general election, and was inaugurated as president on January 20, 2009. Nine months later, Obama was named the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize laureate.

Obama was re-elected president in November 2012, defeating Republican nominee Mitt Romney. He is the first two-term Democrat POTUS since Franklin D. Roosevelt to win two presidential elections with a majority of the popular vote. During his second inaugural address on January 21, 2013, Obama called for full equality for gays: "Our journey is not complete until our gay brothers and sisters are treated like anyone else under the law- for if we are truly created equal, then surely the love we commit to one another must be equal as well."

On February 17, 2009, Obama signed the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, a $787,000,000,000 economic stimulus package aimed at helping the economy recover from the deepening worldwide recession, thereby continuing an economic aid policy first instituted under the preceding (Republican) President George W. Bush.

Domestic policy items include the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act AKA Obama Care, signed into law on March 23, 2010. Barack Obama appointed two women to serve on the Supreme Court in the first two years of his Presidency. Sonia Sotomayor, nominated by Obama on May 26, 2009, was confirmed on August 6, 2009, becoming the first Hispanic Supreme Court Justice. Elena Kagan, nominated by Obama on May 10, 2010, was confirmed on August 5, 2010, bringing the number of women sitting simultaneously on the Court to three, for the first time in American history.

On January 16, 2013 President Obama outlined a series of sweeping gun control proposals, urging Congress to reintroduce an expired ban on "military-style" assault weapons, impose limits on ammunition magazines to 10 rounds, introduce background checks on all gun sales, pass a ban on possession and sale of armor-piercing bullets, as well as additional measures.

Notable foreign policy items include the draw-down of troops in Afghanistan and the end of military operations in Iraq as of August 31, 2010. On March 16, 2011, he authorized the U.S. Military to engage in air strikes against Libya's governmental air defense capabilities in order to protect civilians and enforce a no-fly zone. On May 1, 2011, Obama authorized a "surgical raid" by United States Navy SEALs in Abbottabad, Pakistan, resulting in the death of international terrorist and al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden and the seizure of papers, computer drives and disks from bin Laden's compound.
