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 ...

Look's like it Homer but the problem remains the same__what in the fuhell is a pit bull? A pit bull mix or a Staffordshire bull terrier? How about a pit bull mixed with a Mastiff?

Not far from my crib there is a Flea Market (Renningers) and there used to be a lady there that sold wolves. Well, not real ones but 1/2 up to 3/4 wolf mixes on the trust me scale. Owning a real wolf requires a special license and certain property restrictions.

Wolves statistically, are safer than pit bulls.

Born apart... Bonapart... the Napoleon hotel... a block, no more, from the Arche... I was amazed to see your hair, your arms, your legs. I thought you were dead.

I walked behind you and watched as you kissed another man... but was never in doubt. You love me, I know this and am not jealous. No one can have you as I have. No one can love me as you have.

Gun owners shooting people en masse? You seriously need to chill, Homer.
More people are killed in the streets of Chicago by gangs who have the strictest gun laws on the books.
What we need are better laws allowing mental health professionals to discern red flags and take the mentally ill off the streets who ARE killing people en masse before it's too late.
The government wouldn't make that decision. Mental health professionals would.

Where does end?
Good question.
I kinda think when we have a complete collapse of the dollar and the economy and Liberty and Justice and our Country as we know it.
That's when it will end.
Kinda of a sham...really
So many will suffer...only to serve as reminder as too who
we are as Americans and just what it is that set apart from
the rest of the world.
Guess Obama and the radical left think France or Germany will replace us as the guardians of liberty and freedom and will step up to the plate to protect us and the rest of the world from radical Muslims and communist Russia and China.

The only thing that will set us apart from the rest of the world is we'll be the ones who fall the fartherest and the hardest.

The U.S. Census Bureau determined that 25.1 percent of African-American households and 29.2 percent of households with children are food insecure!! Like Bill Clinton would say ‘ I Feel Your Pain!”
The other problem is no one is minding the store and welfare fraud and abuse is becoming rampant - especially in the cities.

Food stamps should be the responsibility of each state. The federal government trying to oversee something this massive is like trying to restrain a bull in a china shop.

HOW CAN SOME BLACKS;How Can Blacks Love Obama So Much When They're Doing So Bad;Is there a disconnect between the actual economic well-being of African Americans and their uncritical, unconditional love for their first black president: one opionion is "The short answer to the question is that Black folks are whores for symbolic signs of progress and achievement aided and abetted by an anti-intellectual bent and a "Black Media;that in essence constitutes Black Minstrel shows. We act like thumb-sucking children and we get treated accordingly.

We don't know how to even define substantive progress anymore.

Another major component/factor relates to our fragile emotional state: we PROJECT shit all the time. PROJECTION is what got Obama elected in the first place. We always want someone to "like" us or respect us even when we do little to earn it. Thus every slight at Obama is a slight against Black folks, at least that's how its interpreted. Blacks are so enthralled with White measures of their success that they can't find nor define their own metrics. Sad thing is expect matters to get worse as immigrants take the service industry and construction jobs. Black unemployment will be fixed at 25% and Negroes will STILL be raving about Obama.

This morning, I listened to Tom Joyner and his cohorts joke about the Atlanta test cheating indictments. TJMS won't have anyone on to discuss the immorality, coerciveness, and bankruptcy of No Child Left Behind or Race to the (Bottom). But they and millions of their viewers will guff it up about what is the appropriate punishment. Hardy har har.

We're a collective bunch of Minstrels acts/performances. It is what it is.

It will be 25 years before Blacks realize what harm Obama has inflicted, and even then I surmise less than 50% of those Blacks polled will have a negative opinion of him. Negroes will be lined up outside homeless shelters talking about, "If only they'd let Obama be Obama." Pathetic. We're screwed, but well entertained.

You must aware that a gun doesn't have a mind of it's own & a pitbull does meaning, without someone dictating the actions of the dog, it can & does still have incidents of vicious attacks. I had a German Shepherd when I was young. Honestly, this dog was so strong on numerous occasions it popped tow truck chains when the neighbors dog would get loose and come in our yard. I've seen pitbulls jump shoulder high fences & I'm 6"2 so I understand the need for owner responsibility with pitbulls. That being said, I think gun owners should bear the same responsibilities giving the fact that it's legal guns stolen by friends & family members used in terrorist style mass killings! I'm on my phone, but can someone please pull up the stats on assault weapons used to fend off home invaders. I'm quite sure it's a small percentage if any at all. No one needs an assault rifle for protection. A gun like that does more harm than good in a situation like that. You'll wind up shooting someone in your family using that type weapon in such small quarters. The army had to modify the M16 for the Iraq war. It was too long & awkward in tight quarters in city settings.

U.S. and Al-Qaeda: The Best of Frenemies
Not a word was spoken or written about the White House, the Pentagon, and the Congress now funding, training, and arming Al-Qaeda, our supposed enemy.”

The insanity of endless war has found the White House, the Pentagon, and the Congress in an alliance with Al-Qaeda in Libya, Syria, Mali, and possibly other countries. The goal, it seems, is to destroy secular governments in Northern Africa and the Middle East. Also targeted are the Shia dominated governments in Iran and Iraq. The White House, Pentagon, and the Congress are leading a coalition including, Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Turkey, The United Arab Emirates, Croatia, England, France, and Al-Qaeda to destroy and break up targeted countries. As Bush II and Obama have said, we Americans are not “into” nation building, we are “into” nation destruction.

This alliance of convenience finds the White House, the Pentagon, and the Congress in violation of the “Authorization for Use of Military Force” which was passed one week after the Saudi nationals crashed their hijacked airplanes into the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. The AUMF effectively declared war on “those nations, organizations, or persons he [the President] determines planned, authorized, committed, or aided the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001, or harbored such organizations or persons…” Subsequent amendments to the annual National Defense Authorization Acts (NDAA) identified Al-Qaeda, the Taliban and associated forces as well as any nation, organization, or person who is part of or is substantially supporting Al-Qaeda, the Taliban, or associated forces. Bush II decreed he had the authority to detain indefinitely, without regard to international law or the U.S. Constitution, any person aiding our named enemies, including Al-Qaeda. Obama has gone further than Bush II and decreed he has the right to detain indefinitely or kill any U.S. citizen he thinks is aiding our named enemies including Al-Qaeda. This led recently to a short lived debate about this unilaterally decreed power. Ironically, the debate was led by the Senator Rand Paul, a Tea Party leader. There was a deafening silence from those in Congress who call themselves liberals/progressives.

However, not a word was spoken or written about the White House, the Pentagon, and the Congress now funding, training, and arming Al-Qaeda, our supposed enemy.

We have a long history with Al-Qaeda going back to the late 1970’s during the Carter Administration. The relationship is characterized by mutual benefit more than enmity. Zbigniew Brzezinski hatched a plan to give the Soviet Union “its own Viet Nam” by training, funding, recruiting, along with Saudi Arabia, and arming radical Islamist Fundamentalists to conduct guerilla warfare in Afghanistan to drive the Soviet Union out. Working closely with the dictatorship Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and the Pakistani military and intelligence organizations, the U.S.-led terrorists succeeded in forcing the Soviet Union to retreat from Afghanistan. Several years later the Taliban gained control of most of Afghanistan.

But our alliance with Al-Qaeda did not end there. Clinton I recruited Al-Qaeda to join the U.S. and NATO in their successful destruction and breakup of Yugoslavia. Al-Qaeda’s role was to train and fight alongside Bosnian Muslims, fighting Serbs. Again we have a resounding success in destroying a nation. Clinton I also convinced Osama bin Laden to send his “freedom fighters”(Ronald Reagan’s words) to Chechnya to assist the Chechnya terrorists in their campaign to separate Chechnya from Russia. That didn’t end up so good in spite of a brutal terror campaign inside Russia and Chechnya.

OBAMA AND HIS BOSSES We want to control all of Africa’s natural resources, especially people, and we want to drive China out of Africa.”
Today we have gone full circle. The divorce has been set aside and we are once again married to Al-Qaeda. Al-Qaeda is too valuable in our never ending war because American people have been conditioned to treat it as a threat even when it is our ally. This alliance may enable Al-Qaeda to establish “franchises” in more countries than Starbucks. Look to Al-Qaeda “franchises” in African countries which already includes Mali, Algeria and Somalia. This convenience grants us the “right” under the AUMF to destroy African nations, all of which were given boundaries by European nations in the late 19th century. We want to control all of Africa’s natural resources, especially people, and we want to drive China out of Africa.

What is wrong with us that we have no reaction to this development? Are we so afraid that our brain has frozen? It is unlikely Obama will have himself detained or put on his own kill list as he has killed at least three U.S. citizens under the AUMF. Congress will keep its obedient silence and we will pay.

Food stamps no longer exist dummy__the recipients are issued a card (EBT) and while there is still fraud it's nowhere near the amount back in the days of the coupons.

Obviously you haven't a clue as to how SNAP is administered.

Car-shopping website Edmunds.com has raised its full-year U.S. car sales forecast to 15.5 million vehicles, a level the industry hasn't seen since 2007, as car shoppers remain resilient in the face of fiscal issues in the U.S. and uncertainty in Europe.

"Car shoppers seem unfazed by fiscal issues in the news," said Edmunds chief economist Lacey Plache. "Even though consumer confidence has been up and down so far this year, there are "wealth effects" that are making Americans feel comfortable finally buying the new cars they've been waiting for."

You should stop taking & think for a second, giving the fact you can't do 2 things at 1 time. How can someone talk about a group of peoples shortcomings & how we try to measure our success by white merit, then turn around & measure our success on white merit?

The Assassination Of Dr. King And The Suppression Of The Anti-War And Peace Perspectives
Memory, individual and collective, is clearly a significant site of social struggle.”

(Aurora Levins Morales)
Unlike the celebrations organized around the birthday of Dr. King, with which the U.S. government severs Dr. King from the black movement for social justice that produced him and transforms his oppositional stances into a de-radicalized, liberal, integrationist dream narrative, the anniversary of the murder of Dr. King creates a challenge for the government and its attempt to manage the memory and meaning of Dr. King. The assassination of Dr. King raises uncomfortable questions -- not only due to the evidence that his murder was a “hit” carried out by elements of the U.S. government, but also because of what Dr. King was saying before he was killed about issues like poverty and U.S. militarism .

The current purveyors of U.S. violence will find attention to Dr. King’s anti-war and peace position most unwelcome, especially with a black president that has been able to accomplish what U.S. elites could have only dreamed of over the last few decades - the normalization of war-making as a legitimate tool to advance the geo-political interests of the U.S. and its’ colonial allies. So reminding people of Dr. King’s opposition to U.S. warmongering and the collaboration of liberals in that warmongering then and now, produces a strange convergence of political forces from both ends of the narrow U.S. political spectrum that have an interest in suppressing King’s anti-war positions.
