Barack Obama, our next President

Full story: Hampton Roads Daily Press

"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 ...

There's a lot of drippy rocks around here--too bad heathens and heretics have to liter the beauty of them up. Ugh-sorry ass litter is SOOOO nasty. Thx for the tip on leo though, that explains the obsession of her incorrect sterotyping somewhat then!!

Overall, the U.S. has approximately 25 percent of the entire global prison population even though it only has 5 percent of the total global population. The United States has the highest incarceration rate on the entire globe by far, and no nation in the history of the world has ever locked up more of its own citizens than we have. Are we really such a cesspool of filth and decay that we need to lock up so many of our own people? Or are there some other factors at work? Could part of the problem be that we have allowed companies to lock up men and women in cages for profit?

Dave is right.
One of the most constantly whined refrains out of the economic crisis is that banks were forced to make bad loans to low income groups because of federal regulations requiring them to loan money to minorities.
Thatís hooey, of course. Just enough to convince those who really want to believe the housing crisis was the result of some liberal plot.
Check the June 12, 2012 Washington Post. A Wells Fargo executive describes in detail how she led the team that eagerly sought out minorities and people with bad credit or no credit and hoodwinked them into loans they couldnít handle.
She was making loans people couldnít pay under the certainty that she would make her loan fees while the loans themselves would be sold and resold. She was one cog in a giant machine that was spinning out money as the housing hyper-inflationary bubble inflated.
When borrowers defaulted, as banks knew they would, the banks got the property (which was going up in value) and kept the payments. And then bundled the bad loans to Wall Street as "investment grade".
It was a great scam while it lasted. Blame the banks for what happened. And the GOP Majority in Congress and the White House who did nothing as the situation spun out of control.
Thatís hooey?

I think we know who the old lunatic is in the room!

Sorry to pop your dream bubble, but the water burst over that dam back in 2008-2009 and Obama has been trying to contain it ever since.
Are you making another laughable attempt at Bush-Bashing?

Tell us again the story about how FDR had no idea that his Generals were rounding up Japanese Americans and putting them in concentration camps. I enjoyed that story better than this one:}

Obama got 4 million votes less than in 2008 and still won. Republicans are screwed.
I find it interesting that in 2000 Bush got 50 million or so votes(about 1/2 a million less than Gore) and in 2008 got over 62 million, I hadn't realized with his poll numbers barely treading 50% that he was so popular.
Tell me that sh!t doesn't add up. Diebold did some serious counting for Bush.
Or something was rigged in the 2012 election.

As most gun owners will agree, skepticism of government is healthy. But today, there are more than enough actual threats to the Second Amendment to keep gun owners busy. With two key Supreme Court decisions hanging by a one-vote margin, the Justice Department deeply involved in a cover-up of a disastrous Mexican gun smuggling operation, and President Obama touting a ban on popular semi-automatic firearms, there is no need to invent additional threats to our rights.

<quoted text>A mini-boom and not all the impacted areas are union controlled. In 2004, a trio of hurricanes hit Fl, Charlie, Frances and Jeanne and while Charlie was the most deadly all caused tremendous damage to homes and buildings.
That was a mega boom which brought roofing crews from everywhere and illegal Mexican laborers by the thousands to perform clean and fix up that lasted well into 2006 when the mortgage shyt started to hit the fan.
In my area many folks had to replace their roofs twice, right after Charlie and then again after the very wet Jeanne. The debris from those storms has created mountainous landfills throughout the state.
Nobody touches a hammer in NYC construction unless they are union.

No Mexicans allowed.

Your neighborhood should be returned to the swamps. Either that or find someone who knows how to roof a house.

Sometimes it feels like we're standing on the edge of a great precipice. North Korea threatening nuclear attacks, Israel threatening to take out Iran's nuclear facilities, al-Qaeda regrouping and setting up headquarters in Africa and now our own Homeland Security seemingly preparing for something rather ominous. The uncertainty is not knowing whether the push will come from an outside catastrophic event or an economic disaster in our country leading to someting much worse within our own borders.

But it certainly feels like we're standing on the edge of a great precipice sometimes and another chapter of world history is about to be written. It's hard to imagine this rumbling volcano will suddenly becoming dormant. It's possible but doesn't seem likely.

But I Also don't think we will not win a national election with out
real gains in the youth vote.
Santorum weakness....painted as religious nut and globalist, would
not play well with youth.
But he would do very well in Ohio and other Mid-West states.
The road to the WH will go through the Mid-West...Ohio being
once again the key state.
But Rand Paul....WOW!! that gives us a real chance with so many
badly needed young voters.
The so-called "religious right" are far from dependable voters.

They are economic liberals whose only claim to "conservatism" is being anti-abortion.

Galt thinks they stayed home in 2012 because they didn't like Romney's religion, and they won't like Santorum's Catholicism any better.

Screw the religious right. They have no place to go.

Of course it could be the drugs... I always feel like I'm about to fall down since the stroke... I get dizzy and then I have to sit down for a half hour or so with my head between my knees. I'm ok, though, thank you all the good people for your prayers and warm wishes.

I used to love New York, new yawk, at least I think I did? There's so much I don't remember... like the time I took my daughter to F.A.O. Schwartz and we got trapped in the elevator with those homeless men... I keep thinking there was something I should've done... oh well, I guess it doesn't matter any longer...

I just LOVE Rand Paul, though I admit I wish he had a better name.. he's everything America needs right now, he's short, compact I like to say, closer to the earth than the others, more in touch with the base. I just wish he wasn't crazy... but I shouldn't complain, at least he's not black or, ugh, Indian. I don't think I could vote for Jindal, I can just see him decorating the White House with elephant sculptures or cooking curry out on the lawn. That smell is so cloying...
