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

North Korea has very limited electrical power.
If one googles North Korea and expands the little map that appears in the upper right of the page the first thing one would notice is that N Korea has very few roads. Looks like the fifth largest military in the world walks everywhere and those missiles are basically confined to the Pyongyang parade route.
It's my guess that one or two well placed US or S Korean missiles ends any conflict within hours sending the N Korean population into panic and chaos.
Meanwhile, N Korea has "never" tested the Musudan missile.
Most of what you say is true because the North Koreans have devoted all of their resources to their military, completely ignoring everything else.

But you're wrong because a humanitarian leader like Obama would never target the North Korean civilian population and, in any event, the North Korean population is under complete government control.

Consider also the possibility of a massive land invasion across the border, something that neither South Korea or the US has the ability to resist.

Placing three healthy, tactically trained LEO along with all the gear they would require in each public school is not only stupid but economically impossible. Then what about the parochial and private schools, charter schools, day care centers etc etc.

Now, tell me again, which of the recent school shooters would have been preempted by "mental health experts?"

About six years ago, one of our SAFY kids (three-hundred-pound African Queen) went nuts in study hall. Resource officer was in his way as he charged down A-hall. Long story short, kid climbed up his back in a smashing take down, and the officer (about 27) retired on disability.

Andy Brooks, a 63-year-old British communist, has one word to sum up the indispuable reports of human rights violations in N. Korea:“propaganda.”

He complained “unsubstantiated claims” were “constantly thrown at North Korea".

Brooks is the secretary-general of the U.K.’s New Communist Party.

http://worldnews.nbcnews.com/_news/2013/04/04...

At least, according to this article, even other communists disavow his statements.

All Brooks has to do is rent the movie "Camp 14: Total Zone Control".

He will change his mind. Unless he doesn't have one.

I disagree with Obama and the fact that you try to make a policy disagreement about race is proof enough you are the one lacking an enlightened viewpoint here.

Well, to rational and clear-thinking people, that seems to be a problem.

So making fun of heavy weight females is not sexist in your mind? Not a big surprise,but expected you to have the good common sense not to be proud of yourself for it.

Yet, we pay for these guards in every social security office. How do you justify that?

I think you are grasping at straws here.

Why three, not one? In a school with twenty teachers, that would add about 5% to the personnel costs? And they would not require "tactical gear."

The Virginia Tech and Aurora shooters were both known by psychiatric personnel to be crazy and capable of such acts. The problem is translating that knowledge into action.

The economics of Obamacare are rapidly becoming unraveled, because all the original cost projections were absurd and politically motivated to allow passage.
However, despite the unfolding economic catastrophe, Obama will never back away, so the only possible outcome is a massive tax increase.
Interesting politics ahead on financing this turkey.

Well who as Governor of Massachusetts signed into law the requirement that all citizens of the state be required to have health insurance and stated that there should be no "free riders" in the system. That would be Mitt Romney who also signed into law one of the toughest gun regulations in the nation.
You're an idiot!

I would guess you probably voted for Romney, he is one would make decisions for you, deciding you must buy health insurance, you must allow the government to restrict your rights.

Hmmm, genuine participants can only mean -to you-if they agree with Obama?
So turn around Obama is not a genuine participant because he refuses to work with Republicans.
Obama's "fix" is not what everyone regards as a "fix".
Genuine participants are those whose interest lies with the well being of this country instead of their political party. Republican leadership met in December 2008 to decide how to proceed. They said if Obama was for it, they were against it.

McConnell said their number one priority was to make Obama a one term President, not help Americans find jobs.

They have an underground subway system that goes down 100-200 meters, they've been training for war for over 50 years!
Maybe the President should call his bluff and say "listen buddy, these are your options: we will bomb the hell out of your reactor and drone you and will not give you any money. Period."

There are only a couple of roads to the South dummy, see for yourself and it would take months to stage a massive land invasion__months in which the N Korean troops would be exposed. And probably hungry as hell.

I said one or two well placed missiles and nothing about the N Korean countryside. Maybe a round through the roof of that massive building where all the N Korean muckety mucks gather up and another into the Pyongyang power plant.

The N Korean civilians and 97% of the military haven't a fkn clue as to the damage the US can inflict within minutes.

Doesn't matter chump, China will jump in ahead of us and smack that fat little prik around. China sure as hell doesn't want a unified Korea that it can't exploit.

The CBO is a computer that was fed bad assumptions, producing bad results. Garbage in, garbage out.

But neither your opinion or mine matters in the least.

Events will tell the story in terms of insurance premiums, cancellation of coverage, unemployment, government costs, and lack of access to medical care.

Just sit back and enjoy, satisfied in the knowledge that all will be "covered", whatever that is worth.

This is one issue that Obama will not be able to tap-dance around, except perhaps to demonize the wealthy and demand more taxes.

Barack Obama will return 5% of his salary to the US treasury in a show of solidarity with federal workers affected by $85bn in government-wide spending cuts.
Hundreds of thousands of workers could be forced to take unpaid leave if Congress fails to reach an agreement soon to undo the cuts, which came as punishment for the inability of the Obama administration and Congress to come up with another way to address the country's debt.
The 5% that Obama will hand back mirrors the 5% cut that domestic agencies took when the reductions went into effect. The Pentagon's budget took an 8% hit.
Every federal agency is grappling with spending cuts, which the White House has said could affect everything from commercial flights to classrooms.
A 5% cut from the president's salary of $400,000 (£265,000) a year amounts to $20,000.
"The salary for the president, as with members of Congress, is set by law and cannot be changed," Obama's spokesman, Jay Carney, said on Wednesday. "However, the president has decided to share in the sacrifice being made by public servants across the federal government."
THIS IS A BIG,BIG SACIFICE FOR THE PRESDENT,I FEEL SO SORRY FOR HIM THAT, I AM GOING TO SEND HIM SOME MONEY.I JUST DO NOT KNOW HOW THIS POOR GUY IS GOING TO MAKE IT,I FEEL SO SORRY FOR ALL THIS PAIN HE IS GOING THREW!
"Mental"
The president nobama really cares???? Yeah right. He returned 5% of his salary, 20 grand. Then he hops on Air Force 1, cost a few hundred thousand to fly to Los Angeles for a fund raiser.

How would know what rational, clear-thinking (isn't that a bit redundant) people would are having problems with? However, yes; that's your racist assumption; that's clearly untrue, and yes, I am an extremely white rational person who would not become a Grumpy Old Prick as long as one brain cell remained.
