BWAH HAH HAH HAH

You liberals are so stupid. Why can't you be a genius like me?

Who cares if I don't know the facts? Facts are meaningless.

I just go BWAH HAH HAH HAH! and run on to another dimwitted post.

I have no job, no girlfriend and no purpose in life. Except to make an azz of myself here at topix.

Hello, Stupid.
For the 3rd time, the orders which sent the Japanese-Americans to internment came from the General DeWitt on May 3rd, 1942.
There is NOTHING in Roosevelt's two executive orders which parallel DeWitt's. So you're busted.
You've got nothing, but lack of facts has never stopped a GOP fatmouth from going BAH HAH HAH HAH and proclaiming himself the "victor".
Face it, you GOP clowns are woefully ignorant on matters of history.
You're such a moron, you didn't even know "the shot heard round the world" is a reference to the battle of Lexington which is where the American Revolution began.
Fckn dufus.
For a history prof, you seem to have a liberal revisionist grasp of history, I guess this is just another example of the liberal indoctrination of our youth by the ignorance that exists in our education system. SAD

EXCERPT of EX Order 9066

Executive Order No. 9066

The President

Executive Order

Authorizing the Secretary of War to Prescribe Military Areas
Whereas the successful prosecution of the war requires every possible protection against espionage and against sabotage to national-defense material, national-defense premises, and national-defense utilities as defined in Section 4, Act of April 20, 1918, 40 Stat. 533, as amended by the Act of November 30, 1940, 54 Stat. 1220, and the Act of August 21, 1941, 55 Stat. 655 (U.S.C., Title 50, Sec. 104);

Now, therefore, by virtue of the authority vested in me as President of the United States, and Commander in Chief of the Army and Navy, I hereby authorize and direct the Secretary of War, and the Military Commanders whom he may from time to time designate, whenever he or any designated Commander deems such action necessary or desirable, to prescribe military areas in such places and of such extent as he or the appropriate Military Commander may determine, from which any or all persons may be excluded, and with respect to which, the right of any person to enter, remain in, or leave shall be subject to whatever restrictions the Secretary of War or the appropriate Military Commander may impose in his discretion. The Secretary of War is hereby authorized to provide for residents of any such area who are excluded therefrom, such transportation, food, shelter, and other accommodations as may be necessary, in the judgment of the Secretary of War or the said Military Commander, and until other arrangements are made, to accomplish the purpose of this order. The designation of military areas in any region or locality shall supersede designations of prohibited and restricted areas by the Attorney General under the Proclamations of December 7 and 8, 1941, and shall supersede the responsibility and authority of the Attorney General under the said Proclamations in respect of such prohibited and restricted areas.

I hereby further authorize and direct the Secretary of War and the said Military Commanders to take such other steps as he or the appropriate Military Commander may deem advisable to enforce compliance with the restrictions applicable to each Military area hereinabove authorized to be designated, including the use of Federal troops and other Federal Agencies, with authority to accept assistance of state and local agencies.

Actually Roosevelt agreed with Dewitt’s assertion that the Japanese were conspiring to sabotage the war effort and issued Ex Order 9066. It was this order that gave Dewitt the power to inter the Japanese. That order was issued on Feb 19, two weeks before Dewitt’s order.

Answer this question seriously. You don't think Democrats have third vacation homes and try to avoid paying taxes on their stuff?
Ask Nancy Pelosi and other Democrats who fly fancy jets all over the place on our dime if they care about the Middle Class.
Projecting much Carol? The middle class didn't get their taxes raised outside of the payroll tax holiday which was never meant to be permanent. The GOP has never cared about the middle class and have constantly thrown road blocks up on any legislation that would increase jobs.
Nancy Pelosi and other Democrats don't fly around in fancy private jets you goddamn liar, they fly commercial like everyone else. The only member of Congress that gets a private jet is the Speaker of the House currently Republican John Boehner.

You should watch calling others liar, when it is you disseminating misinformation.

As a result of a Judicial Watch filing under the Freedom of
Information Act, the USAF releaseddocuments detailing House Speaker use
of United States Air Force aircraft between March 2009 and June 2010.

Here are the main highlights revealed by the USAF. Keep in mind that
all the data below relate to United States Air Force aircraft used by
one woman over a
sixteen month period.Several of these flights included Ms. Pelosi’s
guests, such as grown children, grandchildren, various in-laws, friends
and hangers-on.

Over 95% of the trips were between the west coast and Washington DC ,
for what you might call a commute between home and the office. READ it
and WEEP!!

Total trips: 85 over a 68 week period, or 1.25 average trips per week.
Total mileage: 206,264 miles, or 2,427 average miles per trip.
Total flying time: 428.6 hours, or an average of 5 hours per trip.
Cost to the taxpayers:$2,100,744, or $27,715 per trip, or $1,285,162 per year!
Cost of in flight food and alcohol:$101,429; $1,193 per trip; $62,051 per year.

Since taking over as speaker of the House John Boehner has flown commercial flights not USAF jets.

It is very obvious that the strategy the regime has about sequestration is to make it as difficult for everyone as possible. No prioritization, just make the pain hit close to home.

You won't see any legislators pay cut, travel reduction or anything else regarding the people in Washington. SOS Kerry is wanting to give $250M to Egypt. The strategy is to make it tough on the people so that never again will we make government watch what it spends.

This confirms my belief that government is over-reaching, over grown and in need of a change.

I hope the most American's realize this as the low information voter will only know what they are told by the media through sound bites.

Unfortunately much as what occurred in Venezuela over the last 15 years, the takers in our society have begun to outnumber the makers. The losers in Venezuela took to the streets to mourn their dictator, who plundered their economy for personal wealth, because he handed out free bread to them. Just like the losers of our country elected a president based on the freebies that he promised.

I already explained FDR's "Boy Messiah" technique and you avoid it like the plague.
Now. Do you REALLY believe that FDR just blindly sat back, issued Executive Orders encompassing Japanese American populations and then let his generals incarcerate innocent Japanese Americans into internment camps and then coyly avoided the actions of his newly created Civilian Police Forces who only rounded up Japanese Americans?

It was obvious as to your ignorance.

It is a common trick for one party to propose legislation with a poison pill with the sole purpose of getting the opposition name on a vote.

For example - write a bill & call it the "balanced Budget" bill & hide a segment limiting access to abortion. Democrats vote no because of that abortion poison pill & Republicans run screaming through the streets how Democrats don't want a balanced budget.

yes, you are that stupid.

He talks a lot. But if he ever had a plan, Senate Democrats would have passed it already.
So how can the left possibly think the Republicans have anything whatsoever to go on?
It's the enigma of the left.
Carol, you remain one of the most uninformed people here on topix.

Answer the question.
Have you been hypnotized by Bill O'Reilly? It has been answered. You obviously have difficulty accepting that. Or you are not paying attention to anything but Mr. O'Reilly. Do your own research and get off the Fox news "habit". It's a bad one to have. Both parties are big spenders, they only complain about it when it's the other guy holding the purse strings. You seem to fall into that category as well.

About 750,000 jobs will be lost when the government and government contractors are forced to cut back. That means that not only government but also private sector employees will be on the street and all because the GOP doesn't want to close loopholes that allow corporations to pay little if any taxes.

1. The Cuts Are Tiny!

The actual cuts in fiscal year 2013 are only $44 billion, according to the Congressional Budget Office (CBO). The rest don't even take place until 2014 or later. Whether you use $44 billion or $85 billion we're talking about 1 or 2 percent of total government spending.

2. Spending is Still Going Up!

Even with the sequester, the federal government is expected to spend more this year than it did last year. The government spent $3.5 trillion in 2012 and i expected to spend $3.6 trillion in 2013 (see Summary Table 1).
