Barack Obama, our next President

Would law professor or senator Barack Obama have supported effectively giving a U.S. president unilateral power to kill American citizens abroad if they are suspected of being involved in terrorism?

The controversy over an Obama administration memo, first obtained by NBC News, that describes the administration’s legal justification for killing even U.S. citizens, gets at a core question of the president’s anti-terrorism policies: would Democrats, even Obama himself, have been comfortable with George W. Bush taking similar approaches?(Many, even at times Obama, were not, although the specific issue of U.S. citizens is new.) Would they support a president Jindal or Rubio or Jeb Bush if he asserted such executive authority?

“Even if the Obama administration is convinced of its own fundamental trustworthiness, the power this white paper sets out will be available to every future president—and every “informed high-level official”(!)—in every future conflict,” wrote Jameel Jaffer, deputy director of the American Civil Liberties Union, on the organization’s website after the disclosure of the memo.

At the core, the administration’s use of drone strikes to kill suspected al-Qa’ida operatives, both U.S. citizens and non-citizens, hands the president and his team almost total power in determining if a person is connected to terrorism and therefore if the U.S. should use military force to kill them. There is almost no opportunity for any kind of review by the judiciary or Congress.

Obama’s approach isn’t much different from George W. Bush’s, but Democrats spent years casting Bush and Vice-President Dick Cheney as holding an overly-expansive view of executive power.

AND FOR THE EDUCATED 3/5 democrat WHO REFUSE TO TAKE THE MORAL STAND shame on you you are racist with your refusal to speak truth to power

So now you're denying your lame attempt to tell us the stock market really isn't where it is, it's thousands of points lower??

You talk down the economy because you hate Obama.

Problem is, you're dead wrong.

You come here with stupid premises, and you expect to walk away unscathed??

Fact is, Obama saved the economy from a complete Depression, and you hate it!!

Eliminating Tax Subsidies for Oil Companies
" Foreign tax credit. This credit is intended to prevent the double taxation of income that is taxed abroad but also subject to tax in the United States. Yet companies, particularly oil companies, have managed to exploit this subsidy even when they don’t pay income taxes abroad. In total, adjusting the rule would prevent companies from avoiding about $8.5 billion in taxes over a 10-year period."
Why do you defend Big Oil?? Because your mentors tell you you must??
Where can we cut spending without worrying nitwits who believe in Corporatocracy??
"Let people suffer, but protect Corporations at all costs" appears to be your motto.
Really retarded.

It's been debated for months and months, but on Wednesday the United States Postal Service finally will announce it's not going to deliver first-class mail on Saturdays anymore.
The postal service's announcement, planned for about 10 a.m. EST, is expected to say that packages, mail-order medicine, and express mail will continue to be delivered on Saturday, but not letters, bills, cards, and catalogs. Post offices which are now open on Saturdays will continue to be open on Saturdays.

If they don't have a layoff as a result, there will be no real savings.

The Postal Service needs to be free to charge rates as necessary, terminate unprofitable services as necessary, and to deal with their employees the same as any other business.

If that fails, nobody needs them anyway.

If there was ever any doubt the Anti-American Democrats were politicizing the wars and making it harder for us to be safe consider this...

The left displayed outrage and indignation about water boarding and GITMO detainees not having trials quick enough. Remember the idiots tried to have trials in New York and that backfired on Obama an Holder big time. CLOSE GITMO YET?

Now we find out Obama is taking it upon himself to EXECUTE Americans abroad with his drone strikes to the point where even the far left ACLU and even "some" Democrats in Congress have spoken out. Hell, Obama has gone way beyond waterboarding and trials, he goes right to the exeution stage with no Habeas Corpus.

The Ministry of Propoganda (MSNBC, NY Times, CNN, CBS News) is eerily silent.

Now libtards, which one of you morons want to blame Bush for Obama executing Americans?

"Anyways, I'd fly around in a big plane up there and take pictures of the insurgents - that's the bad guys - tryin' to kill our boys on the ground. Then I'd send the pictures to the CIA and they'd tell the Army and they'd tell the Marines and pretty soon there'd be fighter planes or helicopters flyin' around everywhere shootin' and bombin' the bad guys. Here, take a look at this youTube video I made and you'll see what I mean.(watches the movie with Billy) Hahahahaha, did you see that raghead crossin' the bridge, Billy?"
"Sure did, Grandpa, why'd you shoot him?"
"Well, technically I didn't shoot him."
"Somebody shot him?"
"Goddamit, Billy, he was a bad guy, we went there to shoot him. Didn't you like seein' him killed like that?"
"I guess so, Grandpa, but where were the rest of his army?"
"What army? there wasn't no army, Billy, it was just the one guy!"
"Well, um, then why'd you have to use so many bullets? Wasn't that expensive?"
"Oh, jeez, Billy, when you're tryin' to win a war you got to use what resources you have. By shootin' the shit outta that guy we not only killed him dead but we sent a message to the other insurgents."
"What other insurgents? All I saw was the one guy?
"Are you fuckin' with me, Billy?
"No, grandpa, it's just common sense. How can you have a war with just the one guy when you got all the guns and planes?"

ONE in every 100 "white" Britons is directly descended from an African or Asian, a new study has found. The study, which looked at the DNA of 10,000 people, found that many who believed their ancestry to be completely British were actually far more diverse.

Bryan Sykes, professor of human genetics at Oxford University, believes the DNA originates in Africans brought to Britain as soldiers and slaves by the Romans.

Among those whom Sykes found with a strong selection of African genes were a dairy farmer from Somerset whose British ancestry can be traced back hundreds of years.

Many other discoveries cannot be so easily explained. Sykes found that a primary school teacher in Edinburgh had Polynesian DNA that could only have originated from tribes in the south Pacific, even though her family could trace its British ancestry for at least 200 years.

Sykes believes such discoveries show that long migrations and consequent mixing of populations have always been a feature of humanity, making talk about racial purity meaningless.

He said: "This makes nonsense of any biological basis for racial classification. We are all a complex mixture and, at the same time, we are all related."

Similar analyses on black Britons have helped them to establish the links to their past that were destroyed when their ancestors were captured by slave traders.

Jendayi Serwah, of Bristol, came to Britain from Jamaica and was unable to trace her ancestry more than a few generations. Gene tests showed that she was almost certainly descended from members of the Kenyan Kikuyu tribe.

Other recent research has further undermined claims that Britain, or groups within it, could be racially unmixed. It showed that almost everybody of native European descent could trace their ancestry back to one of seven women who lived between 45,000 and 10,000 years ago.

Sykes is part of a project to create a genetic map of the British Isles, including Ireland. Early results suggest that, despite each group's claims to distinct origins, Protestants and Catholics in Northern Ireland were once members of the same tribe, some of whose members emigrated to southwest Scotland in about 800AD.
