Barack Obama, our next President

Fox News' Gretchen Carlson seemed confused on Thursday as to why people are talking so much about the Obama administration's drone policies.
The drone program has dominated political conversation since NBC News released a Justice Department paper which said that the government has the right to kill American citizens even if they are not actively plotting attacks against the United States. The memo's release came just as John Brennan, the administration's nominee for CIA chief, is set to face questions about his role in crafting the drone policy.
But Carlson questioned what the big deal was on Thursday's "Fox and Friends."
"I'm just wondering why this is suddenly becoming a topic of discussion!" she said. "They killed [American citizen Anwar] al-Awlaki, what, two years from now?... I don't remember lawmakers making a humungous stink about this. Some libertarians did. President Obama's fighting the war on terror! Are you against killing terrorists?"
A couple of minutes later, Carlson again tried to figure out what all the fuss was about, apart from people who saw hypocrisy in Obama's embrace of drones and criticism of Bush-era terrorism policies.
"I guess I'm just trying to figure out the exact criticism other than the hypocrisy," she said. "Do we really have criticism about the president taking out members of al-Qaeda?"
After another exchange, she was back. "Are the Democrats upset because innocent civilians are being killed in these drone strikes, or are they upset because the alleged terrorists are being killed?"
Due process, just due process for Americans," co-host Steve Doocy said.
"I don't agree with that," Carlson said.

Seems like you're saying that Fox allows differences of opinion, unlike the lockstep Obama worship at MSNBC.

The Balcony (French: Le Balcon) is a play by the French dramatist Jean Genet. Set in an unnamed city that is experiencing a revolutionary uprising in the streets, most of the action takes place in an upmarket brothel that functions as a microcosm of the regime of the establishment under threat outside.
Since Peter Zadek directed its first production at the Arts Theatre Club in London in 1957, the play has been revived frequently (in various versions) and has attracted many prominent directors, including Peter Brook, Erwin Piscator, Roger Blin, Giorgio Strehler, and JoAnne Akalaitis. It has also been adapted as a film and given operatic treatment. The play's dramatic structure integrates Genet's concern with meta-theatricality and role-playing and consists of two central strands: a political conflict between revolution and counter-revolution and a philosophical one between reality and illusion. Genet suggested that the play should be performed as a "glorification of the Image and the Reflection."
Martin Esslin has called The Balcony "one of the masterpieces of our time."
Plot synopsis
Most of the action takes place in an upmarket brothel in which its madam, Irma, "casts, directs, and co-ordinates performances in a house of infinite mirrors and theaters." Genet uses this setting to explore roles of power in society; in the first few scenes patrons assume the roles of a bishop who forgives a penitent, a judge who punishes a thief, and a general who rides his horse. Meanwhile, a revolution is progressing outside in the city and the occupants of the brothel anxiously await the arrival of the Chief of Police. Chantal, one of the prostitutes, has quit the brothel to become the embodiment of the spirit of the revolution. An Envoy from the Queen arrives and reveals that the pillars of society (the Chief Justice, the Bishop, the General, etc.) have all been killed in the uprising. Using the costumes and props in Irma's "house of illusions" (the traditional French name for a brothel), the patrons' roles are realised when they pose in public as the figures of authority in a counter-revolutionary effort to restore order and the status quo.
Hehehehehe -- Sound familiar? Great art is never stagnant, or is mired in, and reflects merely the times in which it was written. Genet was a really wild guy too, by the way. You would've simply hated him. You've turned out to be one of the stupidest f**ks in here, by the way!
(You guys can never seem to leave well enough alone, huh?)
Oh, we're willing to leave it alone, it's just that you're like a big carbuncle.

Critics of voter ID and other laws cracking down on voter fraud claim they’re unnecessary because fraud is nonexistent. For instance, Brennan Center attorneys Michael Waldman and Justin Levitt claimed last year:“A person casting two votes risks jail time and a fine for minimal gain. Proven voter fraud, statistically, happens about as often as death by lightning strike.”

Well, lightning is suddenly all over Cincinnati, Ohio. The Hamilton County Board of Elections is investigating 19 possible cases of alleged voter fraud that occurred when Ohio was a focal point of the 2012 presidential election. A total of 19 voters and nine witnesses are part of the probe.

Democrat Melowese Richardson has been an official poll worker for the last quarter century and registered thousands of people to vote last year. She candidly admitted to Cincinnati’s Channel 9 this week that she voted twice in the last election.

This is how Channel 9&#8242;s website summarized the case:

According to county documents, Richardson’s absentee ballot was accepted on Nov. 1, 2012 along with her signature. On Nov. 11, she told an official she also voted at a precinct because she was afraid her absentee ballot would not be counted in time.

“There’s absolutely no intent on my part to commit voter fraud,” said Richardson....

The board’s documents also state that Richardson was allegedly disruptive and hid things from other poll workers on Election Day after another female worker reported she was intimidated by Richardson....

During the investigation it was also discovered that her granddaughter, India Richardson, who was a first time voter in the 2012 election, cast two ballots in November.

Richardson insists she has done nothing wrong and promises to contest the charges:“I’ll fight it for Mr. Obama and for Mr. Obama’s right to sit as president of the United States.”

Liberalism always fails and the only way to stay in power is by force and deception, ex; Fidel Castro, Hugo Chavez, Communist Russia, China, etc.
The ONLY reason they want our weapons is not to protect children, that is the ruse, the real reason is to CONTROL the Liberals!!! To legislate against their will!
Notice that I said "Liberals" only because we Conservative will NEVER surrender out Constitutional rights! And we are armed and ready for their confiscation. Come Liberals! Come for our weapons, baby!!!
you mean psuedo or Modern Liberalism since Classical Liberalism was the political philosophy of the Founding Fathers. It permeates the Constitution, the Federalist Papers and many other documents produced by the people who created the American system of government. Many emancipationists who opposed slavery were essentially classical liberals, as were the suffragettes, who fought for equal rights for women.

Classical Liberalism vs. Modern Liberalism and Modern Conservatism

Modern liberalism is not completely collectivist; nor is it completely individualistic. It has elements of both doctrines. The same is true of Modern conservatism. Neither view provides a coherent approach to politics, built up from first principles. Instead, they both reflect a process that is akin to picking items from a dinner menu. What is chosen is a matter of taste rather than a matter of thought. Just as people with similar tastes in food tend to frequent the same restaurants, people with the same tastes in politics tend to vote for the same candidates.

Coming to America Under Obama:
CARACAS, Venezuela (AP)— Venezuela's government announced Friday that it is devaluing the country's currency, a long-anticipated change expected to push up prices in the heavily import-reliant economy.
Officials said the fixed exchange rate is changing from 4.30 bolivars to the dollar to 6.30 bolivars to the dollar.
The devaluation had been widely expected by analysts in recent months, though experts had been unsure about whether the government would act while President Hugo Chavez remained out of sight in Cuba recovering from cancer surgery.
It was the first devaluation to be announced by Chavez's government since 2010, and it pushed up the price of the dollar against the bolivar by 46.5 percent.
By boosting the bolivar value of Venezuela's dollar-denominated oil sales, the change is expected to help ease a difficult budget outlook for the government, which has turned increasingly to borrowing to meet its spending obligations.
But analysts said the move would not be sufficient to end the government's budget woes or balance the exchange rate with an overvalued currency. Economists predicted higher inflation and a likely continuation of shortages of some staple foods, such as cornmeal, chicken and sugar.
Cornmeal-Chicken and Sugar? Oh My!

You're the idiot, fringe zombie. You're even further left than the ACLU. Didn't you get the memo, libtard?

"On October 19, 2011, the ACLU submitted a Freedom of Information Act request seeking information about the targeted killings of three U.S. citizens in Yemen: Anwar al-Awlaki; his 16-year-old son, Abdulrahman al-Awlaki; and Samir Khan."

http://www.aclu.org/national-security/anwar-a ...

Idiots like you made a big deal out of waterboardng, but killing American citizens ..

A N D -

--> their 16 year old kids <--

you defend.

- Bush questionbly stetches the law by pouring water on "known terrorists" face "to get information to save life" = Democrats in an uproar and politisizng the war.

- Obama absolutely stetches the law by becoming judge, jury and EXECUTIONER, also kills 16 year old boy and another guy = Democrats defending Obama the clown.

You are a POS, clown.

Okay, let's go over the salient facts one more time.
Anwar al-Awlaki and Samir Khan were engaged in hostile acts against the United States aiding and abetting Al Qaeda and actively recruiting terrorists. In taking these actions they essentially renounced their citizenship.
Capturing them and bringing them to trial was not a viable option due to where they ensconced themselves.
Allowing them to continue these hostile actions was also not a viable option.
Awlaki's son was travelling with a group of Al Qaeda operatives when he was killed and there's no evidence that he was intentionally targeted . When you travel with a bad crowd sometimes bad things happen to you.
There's never been any evidence that water boarding ever produced useful intelligence. But more importantly you're creating a false equivalency between someone already in custody and no longer a danger and someone actively avoiding capture and still a menace. A police officer can and in fact has the duty to use deadly force against a suspect resisting arrest and deemed to be a danger to the public. Once a suspect is in custody the rules change and the individual has certain rights under the Constitution.
When you're arguing with waxturd you have to realize that his objective isn't truth, its taking the most idiotic position possible to garner attention. In this case if Obama HADN'T ok'd the attack then
waxturd and his loony friends would be screaming "Where was Obama when we had the chance to take out Anwar al-Awlaki?". Sound familiar?
