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

OTOH, I sure would relish the 'Birther Conroversy' if they were foolish enough to procede with nominating him.

Born in Calgary, with an American mother..........

Doesn't quite match born in Hawaii with an American mother, does it?

I would freakin' love it if they ever attempted to nominate Cruz!!

But it can't happen. he's a flash in the pan, an angry phony who called his colleagues commies years after he had worked with them all as editor of the Harvard Law Review.

By doing so, he made himself suspect. Wasn't Obama accused of 'hanging around with Communists??'

Hell, Cruz's claims make it appear he was working with and for communists.

He will be hoisted on his own petard soon enough.

There is no mechanism for verifying the eligibility of candidates. Not that Galt is advocating same, but if Ted Cruz were to be nominated and elected, how would he be prevented from serving?

Birthers... they rely on the nebulous world of their own minds as "proof" for or against something of their belief.

All facts, given that there has never been a thorough judicial review.

Kinda proves how caucasians are losing the population race.
Even in the USA, hispanics have a higher birth rate than whites, guaranteeing they will overtake whites as the majority.
So it appears white folks opinions will continue mean less, as proven by Democratic wins in spite of the 'white folk' vote.
Fortunately for you, you'll be dead long before the shift happens.

Funny to see Nobraina speak of facts.

He certainly is fact challenged, it's questionable what he will accept as fact, as he keeps changing his mind.

Okay Carol let's take these things one at a time.
The purpose of the Boston study was to try and find out why as a group lesbians are more prone to obesity than other groups. Robert Bock of the NIH stated;
"The study on obesity and sexual orientation aims to understand why specific populations are disproportionately affected by obesity and how best to inform prevention and treatment strategies aimed at these populations."
They weren't just studying lesbians for giggles and kicks nitwit.
Your shrimp on a treadmill example also shows how shallow your thought processes are. They weren't just watching shrimp on a treadmill for laughs twit, it was a study done by biologist Lou Burnett of the College of Charleston in South Carolina that studied environmental impacts on many economically important species of seafood. The treadmill study was a small part of the overall research and studied how the shrimp reacted to changes in its environment.
Pottery classes are only a small part of the Moroccan economic grant as is the call center portion of the grant in the Philippines teaching English to students primarily for health care and tourism fields.
All of these programs pale in cost to Medicare part D voted for by both John Boehner and budget genius Paul Ryan which cost taxpayers $32 billion in 2010 and is expected to rise to $150 billion by 2019. Let's not forget the costs of treating our veterans from two wars which are estimated to rise to $8.4 billion by 2020.
Try harder. This post was horribly inept and unconvincing.

Coming to America

(Reuters)- Cyprus was working on a last-minute proposal to soften the impact on smaller savers of a bank deposit levy after a parliamentary vote on the measure central to a bailout was postponed until Monday, a government source said.

In a radical departure from previous aid packages, euro zone finance ministers want Cyprus savers to forfeit a portion of their deposits in return for a 10 billion euro ($13 billion) bailout for the island, which has been financially crippled by its exposure to neighboring Greece.

The decision, announced on Saturday morning, stunned Cypriots and caused a run on cash points, most of which were depleted within hours. Electronic transfers were stopped.

The originally proposed levies on deposits are 9.9 percent for those exceeding 100,000 euros and 6.7 percent on anything below that.

HAHA You're not quite a minority yet.

Your demonizing of hispanics is pathetic and funny and a total lie.

Most hispanics are hard working people, trying to get by in a tough economy where they're at the bottom.

Can't say the same for the meth addicted whites in the middle of the country.

You show why Americans rejected the Repugnants.

(Reuters)- French President Francois Hollande's popularity has fallen to the lowest level since he was elected last May, taking his rating below that of far-right leader Marine Le Pen for the first time, a poll showed on Sunday.

Only 31 percent are satisfied with Hollande's performance, eight points less than last month, as the Socialist president battles unemployment at a 13-year high and a stagnant economy, according to the poll carried out for newspaper Metro and TV channel LCI.

Hollande had started his presidency with a 59 percent approval rating in the monthly Clai-Metro-LCI poll carried out by OpinionWay.

Since then, he has been struggling with a promise to halt a rise in unemployment and his government has announced billions in spending cuts.

Hecklers on a tour to eastern France last week shouted: "What happened to the promises?" and "We've been waiting six months for a change!"

Prime Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault and Finance Minister Pierre Moscovici have as few supporters as Hollande, while Interior Minister Manuel Valls, who cultivates a tough-guy image, comes top of the government, with 58 percent satisfied with his performance.

Senior opposition politicians, including former conservative prime ministers Francois Fillon and Alain Juppe are more popular than Hollande and Ayrault. Far-right leader Le Pen was ahead by one point, the first time she has beaten Hollande during his time in government.

Nearly two thirds want a government reshuffle.

I'd of expected something that stupid coming from Flake.

Should have known better.

Republicans have controlled Congress since 2011. All spending in 2011-12 is on them.

Why can't they control their spending??

Galt also wants Hispanics to get better jobs, earn higher incomes and pay more taxes.

Has there ever been a thorough judicial review of a President in the entire history of the nation?

Obama is not the first President accused of this. Look it up. Didn't work then, didn't work now. Whatever you think is of no consequence.

For you to speak like that again displays your Orly Taitz obsession and desire to be Da Donald's personal knob polisher.
