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

Rev. Jesse Jackson, protestors call on Obama to address Chicago gun violence,Hadiya Pendleton was shot Tuesday while she talked with friends after school in a park about a mile from President Barack Obama’s Chicago home. Police say she was an innocent victim caught up in a gang shooting.

Pendleton died about one week after she performed for Obama’s inauguration. She was a majorette with the King College Prep band.

The shooting has turned a spotlight on Chicago’s homicide rate.

Wilks says Chicago is becoming a city that’s “comfortable with death” and “this has to stop.”

Meanwhile, The Rev. Jesse Jackson is calling on President Obama to return to Chicago and approve federal intervention to address the soaring number of deadly shootings.

MAYBE NOW THE 3/5 DEMOCRATS WILL OPEN THEIR MOUTH and SAY SOMETHING TO THEIR LORD AND MASTER

Sounds kinda like double secret probation.
So, therefore, you would have been in favor of arresting Awalaki, bringing him back here and tried.

A Vancouver man’s all-expenses-paid trip to the Super Bowl went up in smoke because he was busted for having two grams of cannabis more than 30 years ago, according to a report from CBC news.

Myles Wilkinson won the top prize after beating out more than 4 million other contestants in a fantasy football contest, but he never made it to New Orleans. In fact, he only made it as far as Toronto, where he was stopped by U.S. customs officials and told he was not allowed to enter the country due to his 1981 pot bust.

Wilkinson told CBC news that he was 19 at the time.

"I had two grams of cannabis. I paid a $50 fine," Wilkinson told CBC news. "I can't believe this is happening

PEOPLE PUT EDUCATION FIRST FORGET LILLY LIBS JIM CROW KKK DEMOCRATS New study: No racial bias against black scientists
With black unemployment reaching historic levels, banks laying off tens of thousands and law school graduates waiting tables, why aren’t more African-Americans looking toward science, technology, engineering and math — the still-hiring careers known as STEM?

The answer turns out to be a complex equation of self-doubt, stereotypes, discouragement and economics — and sometimes just wrong perceptions of what math and science are all about.

The percentage of African-Americans earning STEM degrees has fallen during the last decade. It may seem far-fetched for an undereducated black population to aspire to become chemists or computer scientists, but the door is wide open, colleges say, and the shortfall has created opportunities for those who choose this path.

STEM barriers are not unique to black people. The United States does not produce as high a proportion of white engineers, scientists and mathematicians as it used to. Women and Latinos also lag behind white men.

Yet the situation is most acute for African-Americans.

Black people are 12 percent of the U.S. population and 11 percent of all students beyond high school. In 2009, they received just 7 percent of all STEM bachelor’s degrees, 4 percent of master’s degrees, and 2 percent of PhDs, according to the National Center for Education Statistics.

From community college through PhD level, the percentage of STEM degrees received by blacks in 2009 was 7.5 percent, down from 8.1 percent in 2001.

The numbers are striking in certain fields. In 2009, African-Americans received 1 percent of degrees in science technologies, and 4 percent of degrees in math and statistics. Out of 5,048 PhDs awarded in the physical sciences, such as chemistry and physics, 89 went to African-Americans — less than 2 percent.

Several factors are cited by scientists, educators and students. One is a self-defeating perception that STEM is too hard. Also mentioned are a lack of role models and mentors, pressure to earn money quickly, and discouraging academic environments.

The impact reaches beyond the black community as America struggles to produce enough scientists to prosper in a world ruled by technology.

“White men make up less than 50 percent of the U.S. population. We’re drawing (future scientists) from less than 50 percent of the talent we have available,” says Mae Jemison, the first black woman astronaut, who has a medical degree and a bachelor’s in chemical engineering.

“The more people you have in STEM,” she says,“the more innovations you’ll get.”

What is gained by you knowing about it? What was gained by bringing those pows to Guantanamo? Why didn't they just kill them?
Who would have known? If Awalaki was just killed by an assassin; no one would have known it was by a drone. Mossad always sends assassins; they get the job done and no one asks questions.
But, we have to have public debate on Fox, CNN, MSNBC, 24 hours a day with anchors pretending to know what they're talking about.
Does the public have to know every tactic, every strategy, every movement? If we know, then the enemy knows too
Well, to be fair, the reason there aren't any questions is because everybody knows they did it and that they got the schoolyard bully in their pocket.

They will send lighter duty police to get a report but not on an emergency basis.

Believe it buster, here in America we just say no. Hopefully they detained him for awhile and will target his house with a drone before too long.

The Democrats voted based on the intel provide by crooked George & DumbassDick.
Valerie Plame was the source of the intel on WMDs in Iraq.
Robert Novak outed Valerie Plame.
The Democrats traded their support for the war in Iraq in exchange for the Republicans giving to them no effective oversight of their Marxist subprime housing loan program that collapsed our economy after two years of oversight by Democrats Dodd and Frank and that was an obvious failure as early as 2003.
