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

Hyped manufactured issues? You mean like the main stream media harping president nobama's doom and gloom resulting from the sequester? You know extra long lines at airports, thousand upon thousands of lay offs, children going hungry, schools cutting back? Actually all we have noted is thousands of illegal criminal immigrants released and school kids tours of the White house cancelled.

I don't know, Ed, I often think I'm standing in front of a precipice myself... there could be something to it? You know, Ed, I'm reminded of the Titanic for some reason? Probably because I am very lonely and have always had a crush on Leonardo DiCaprio? In any event, it took 2 hours or so for the ship to sink. I'm willing to bet the guys on the upper decks didn't think they were going to fall in the water and freeze to death initially...

"Nice night out tonight, Reince."
"Yes, Newt, it is, lovely. The boat does seem to be listing a little though... ever since we felt that bump about an hour ago..."
"Don't worry about it, Reince, the band's still playing isn't it? What could go wrong?"

You don't know me anymore than I know you. But you're the one between the two of us who is arrogant enough to sit in judgment.
There's probably a pretty big stone nearby if you want to be the first one to get in the first shot.
In 5:21 and 22 Jesus says, "For I tell you, unless your righteousness exceeds that of the scribes and Pharisees, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. You have heard that it was said to the men of old,'You shall not kill; and whoever kills shall be liable to judgment.' But I say to you that every one who is angry with his brother shall be liable to judgment; whoever insults his brother shall be liable to the council, and whoever says,‘Thou fool,’ shall be in danger of Hell fire.”

I'm just quoting from the red print...I read the book.

I just couldn't bring myself to listen to that screech owl and whiner, already know what they're going to say. Same old hateful crap to keep the red blood boiling of Morans like we have on here. Thought provoking!!
Thoughts of what?
"silly"
Diversity is a good thing. You know a difference of opinion. Thoughts of their own. Quite unlike the liberalloonuts who walk in lock step with president nobama. The ones who believe in higher taxes, more government spending, more debt, more hand outs.

Holy crap I just saw your new picture. I knew it'd come to this, you bleached your hair! What were you thinking? I know, I know, you've had a little trouble reestablishing the ol' magic after the baby but I feel you're going too far to appease him. Men are all the same except when they're not. Well, I take a certain amount of comfort in knowing the rug is still red... it is, isn't it?

Oh, come on, carol, how are we going to do this if you're constantly setting us up? For a start, who is she between? The two of us? Arrogance is a big word, dear, and, "sitting in judgement" sounds a lot like... well.. everything you say, frankly. Let me try and explain, carol, and frankly, I am boiling over with the desire to part some red, hairy pudenda with my tongue, after I dye it green - which I'm doing right now so you and your idiotic nonsense is low on my priority list just now. Anyways, all you do in here, and, I'd bet at home and at work, is to sit in judgement. Want me to list the times just this morning you've done that? Pretty much alllllllll you do is judge others, that's why they hate you and make fun of you... all of you in fact.

You see no contradiction between the unwavering judgement of others and then criticizing those very same people for judging you. Doesn't seem to lend much credence to you "biblical" analogies. You should probably rethink yourself. Ourselves.

Well, other than you quoting the propagandists who misquoted Palin, at least she wasn't running for the presidency and declared there were 60 states in the union.
"I've been to 57 so far with one to go not including Alaska and Hawaii..."
That adds up to 60.
Again, if it makes you feel better to sit in judgment of others who are just as human as yourself, go right ahead.
Right, dumb carol, people making a lot of speeches do sometimes make slips of the tongue, but Palin doubles down on hers, ""What have you seen so far today?" She was asked (apparently - no full video of the moment has surfaced) by one of those reporters who'd been along for the ride. "And what have you taken from your visit?"

"We saw where Paul Revere hung out as a teenager, which was something new to learn. He who warned, uh, the British that they weren't going to be taking away our arms, uh, by ringing those bells and making sure as he's riding his horse through town to send those warning shots and bells that we were going to be secure and we were going to be free and we were going to be armed."

I noticed you also ignored the Palin family values, but I guess we all know why.

What good would it have done? It would have brought their attention to the values they were teaching their children. It may have made a difference.
I have had those conversations, but then I actually CARE
about my students, and who they grow up to be.
If a student has an I Phone, then Mom can afford $2.00 for lunch every day.
Who's the weakling? Who needs gubbermint to provide health care? Who cowers in fear of Evil Corporations? Who needs gubbermint to punish achievers so that they can feel better about being a loser?

Who can't get up in the morning without blaming The Man (usually a bald, middle-aged white guy driving an SUV) for their lack of work ethic?

You don't get the point, but that's not surprising. We should try shorter words when responding to you. You and your fellow losers (like the Harley guy at my office, who I have spoken to about it REPEATEDLY) takes free stuff from the gubbermint BECAUSE YOU CAN. And since you aren't encumbered with a pesky thing like DIGNITY you are more than willing to stick your hand out even if you don't need it. Why pay for your kids'$2.00 lunch if you can get it for free? All you have to do is fill out the forms so that your live-in breeder-mama girlfriend appears as a "single mother" with no income, or have your checks directed to a PO box in another town so that the breeder LOOKS like an abandoned mother.

Do you honestly think 25% of public school kids NEED the gubbermint to buy their lunches or do 25% of kids get the freebies so that mama can buy an extra six pack on Friday?

Well Carol the Colorado District Attorneys' Council, Colorado Coalition Against Sexual Assault and Colorado Office of the Public Defender all agree Jessica's Law isn't necessary. Colorado law has a life sentence for sexual assault against a child and Jessica's Law only mandates a 25 year sentence.
O'Reilly is a blowhard and a bully who has a meltdown whenever someone doesn't cower before him. O'Reilly was using this issue to attack the Colorado House Speakers sexual orientation.
Why shouldn't all of Colorado's citizens have equal rights under the law?
Marijuana laws are a ridiculous waste of law enforcement resources.
Speed traps are a ridiculous waste of law enforcement resources.

Traffic checkpoints are a ridiculous waste of law enforcement resources.

Parking laws are a ridiculous waste of law enforcement resources.

The IRS is a ridiculous waste of law enforcement resources.

She did manage to cover every right wing non-issue in sound byte form however and she only got lost twice that I noticed. She's got a terrific speech writer__she had the half wits foaming at the mouth.
Rand Paul won the straw poll and he identifies himself as a libertarian. The Republican party is in deep sht with the next national election less than 20 months away.
Really?

There is almost no chance that the Republicans will lose control of the House in 2014, meaning that Obama will be crippled for the balance of his current term.

Republicans are almost sure to gain ground in the Senate in 2014, although gaining control will be a challenge.

The republicans met the president halfway in his "balanced approach" in January by raising taxes on the wealthy in return for his promise to make specific cuts in the budget which both sides could agree on.
He reneged on that promise, signed the sequestration act so he could blame republicans in anticipation of having a political advantage and now wants to increase taxes again with still no cuts on the table.
Hello?
But Obama lost that battle because nobody cares about sequestration.

School lunch programs aren't run by the federal government. Your continued covetous thoughts about the less fortunate are petty and disgusting.
School lunch programs are so constrained by federal guidelines that they are effectively run by the federal government, increasing costs. Some school districts that do not receive large federal subsidies are opting out of the program to save money and avoid wasting federally-dictated food that the children refuse to est.

Sequestration, Obama's idea, was the only way to get Obama to agree to any spending restraint, so why not vote for it?

Very prudent of you to have bought your clothes at thrift stores. I too look for treasures there. Quite often. Finding inexpensive brand names and bargain hunting is something I find rewarding and fun.
But you have no idea the circumstances behind the few students in my class years ago who didn't look like they were wearing thrift store name brands or their family situation.
Which also makes you presumptive.
Abusing the system is an everyday occurrence. Not just in my classroom years ago. It's even worse now.
Want to talk about abuses to the system?

Let's talk defense contractors, Big Ag / Big Pharm subsidies, offshore tax-loopholes, Medicare Part D, Carbon credit swapping, the Alphabet soup of Federal agencies, and Mitt Romney's dancing horse.
