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

<quoted text>You want later studies, or are you just twisting any old thing to make your point.:The study, which was published Mar. 11 in the International Journal of Epidemiology, looked at the mortality -- or death -- rates of 6.5 million Danish adults from 1982 to 2011 who were in relationships during that time. The rates of mortality for married gay men has been going down since 1996, and now is lower than that of unmarried or divorced heterosexual men.
"Among men in Denmark, it is more dangerous to be unmarried or divorced than to be married to another man," Frisch told Live Science in a separate interview.
Denmark was the first country to allow same-sex partnerships in 1989. Researchers used information from the Civil Registration System, which gives out identification numbers similar to Social Security numbers in the U.S."
Did you catch this sentence of his? "As for homophobia, when you choose to stop being gay then your homophobia will disappear"

Now we go from cars to a toilet.

You seem to know an awful lot about gay sex places.

I have found that those men with the loudest complaints about gays just haven't come out yet.

Living Large in the Obama White House
The hoi polloi aren’t welcome, but Marie
Antoinette would be at home. We are now firmly ensconced in the brutal Age of the Sequester, and things in America are grave. The federal government, we learned on Wednesday, is so strapped for cash that the president has been forced to cut off the People’s access to the home he’s borrowing from them. He didn’t WANT to have to do this, naturally —“PARTICULARLY during the popular spring touring season.” But then Congress just had to go and acquiesce in measures that the president himself had suggested and signed into law. How beastly! We axed 2.6% from a $44.8 trillion budget, and now the president can’t even afford the $18,000 per week necessary to retain the seven staff members who facilitate citizens’ enjoying self-guided tours around the White House.
The executive mansion is not in that much trouble, of course. It’s certainly not in sufficiently dire straits for Air Force One ($181,757 per hour) to be grounded, or to see the executive chef ($100,000 per year) furloughed, or to cut back on the hours of the three full-time White House calligraphers ($277,050 per year for the trio), or to limit the invaluable work of the chief of staff to the president’s dog ($102,000 per year), or to trim his ridiculous motorcade ($2.2 million).
If Ellen DeGeneres wants another dancercize session or Spain holds another clothing sale, the first family will be there before you can say “citizen executive.” Fear ye not, serfs: Austerity may be the word of the week, but THIS president is by no means in any danger of being forced to live like the president of a republic instead of like a king.
Parents of the Sandy Hook shooting was flown by air forse one, Obama wanted them at one of the rallies where he is doing on gun control. Money or morals, mean nothing to this man. If we think things are bad now wait until 2014.

When Calvin Coolidge was president in the glitzy 1920s, he took the republican ideal so seriously that he ended up in a series of tiffs with the White House housekeeper, Elizabeth Jaffray, over the cost of state dinners, and took to admonishing the executive branch for using too many pencils.
Such behavior now serves only as a punchline to a joke that is not funny. The current annual cost of the White House — just in household expenses, not the policy operations for which it exists — is $1.4 billion: Annually, presidential vacations cost $20 million (the low estimate for one presidential vacation to Hawaii is $4 million, but the true cost is probably five times that); the first family’s yearly health-care costs are $7 million; more than $6 million is spent on the White House grounds each year.
Transporting the president cost $346 million last year. But as Michelle Obama might say, America is basically a downright mean sort of place, so the tours will just have to go. One hopes at least that the calligraphers were recruited to sign the docents’ pink slips.
It’s not just the cost that stuns — it’s the pomp, too. The expense is often justified on the grounds of security. But for someone who wishes to remain inconspicuous, the president isn’t exactly subtle about things.
In the 1930s, Eleanor Roosevelt tried to refuse Secret Service protection but was overruled. Nonetheless, for fear that “their presence made her look more like a Queen flanked by an Imperial Guard,” she refused to let the agents who tailed her make themselves known to the public, notes Philip H. Melanson. I was in Washington, D.C., once when George W. Bush’s presidential motorcade came past. It was like watching a Michael Bay movie about traffic, but with more special effects.“Imperial Guard” doesn’t do it justice. One can imagine Noel Coward:“Dear boy, I simply loved you in Pennsylvania Avenue!”
Like many of his predecessors, President Coolidge recognized that Americans looked up to the president as the only nationally elected politician, and he sought to behave accordingly. His example has been forgotten. John F. Groom, who has written a book about the growth of the White House, contrasts the expectation that presidents “should run their lives as examples to the nation, with frugality and simplicity,” with the conduct of President Obama, who, despite constant harping about “INCOME INEQUALITY,” has displayed “the very height of unbridled personal excess in his own lifestyle.”

NEW YORK -- IRS documents released Wednesday suggest that the tax collection agency believes it can read American citizens' emails without a warrant.

The files were released to the American Civil Liberties Union under a Freedom of Information Act request. The organization is working to determine just how broadly federal law enforcement agencies like the FBI or the IRS' Criminal Tax Division interpret their authority to snoop through inboxes.

The idea of IRS agents poking through your email account might sound at the very least creepy, and maybe unconstitutional. But the IRS does have a legal leg to stand on: the Electronic Communications Privacy Act of 1986 allows government agencies to in many cases obtain emails older than 180 days without a warrant.

That's why an internal 2009 IRS document claimed that "the government may obtain the contents of electronic communication that has been in storage for more than 180 days” without a warrant.

Why doesn't the left talk about welfare REFORM? It would solve so many of the problems - except they might lose some votes.

Of course, in that case, they will never learn.

Tho it's none of my business who dates who, we as a society need to ask ourselves, is it worth shredding the fabric in which this country was founded on? The answer to that question is no! It's not about whether a person is gay or not. It's about making sure our children, & future children know the difference between a man & a woman, not be confused before their little brain are developed enuff to assess for themselves how they feel!
It's spelled "enough" and you're totally delusional to think that the majority of the country is like Ward and June Cleaver and have sex on Saturday nights in the missionary position. Wonder whos bed they used of the 2 twins in the room?

There's a whole world out there; different strokes for differnt folks, it's none of your business. Teach your children that everyone is different and to respect people the way that they are.
If you're teaching them to be bible thumping self righteous pricks, then you are doing them a disservice as a parent. Intolerance, ignorance, homophobia, racism, xenophobia, sexism; are all learned behaviors; usually taught by igorant parents.

You all should just shut up and go mow your lawns or something. The train's already left the station it won't be coming back for a long, long time, longing for the past won't bring it back there's too much money waiting for it where it's going.

The world is going through transition. Borders are meaningless, arbitrary divisions are just minor obstacles to be circumvented as easily as imaginary fences. In 5 seconds I can reach a Chinese communist and cut a deal to make my widget with slave labor, and that's just by e-mailing Mitch McConnell. Imagine what I could do if I bothered to e-mail China?

Israelis can do online business with willing Iranians. Saudis can buy land in Texas and build bars and strip clubs next to their secret oil refineries. Every day millions of transactions take place between peoples who are currently killing and bombing each other. Commerce, not government, has no borders, no restrictions, no oversight.

So what're you going to do about it? Pretend it's not happening? Bemoan the loss of "jobs?" Are are you going to sit around and bitch about some sexual bullshit that's not even an issue except in church? Hell, even sex is better on the internet because he or she never has a headache and it's a simple matter to Photoshop out that big wart on her nose.

Grow up. Your world, whether it was good or bad previously, no longer exists. You are as unnecessary to the new world as the Pentagon is to defense. Anyone with some rudimentary knowledge and a subscription to Popular Mechanics can drive a flea-sized drone up your daughter's private parts - or yours - it's no longer even interesting.

Israelis and Palestineans? Who cares? Unrest on the Korean peninsula? So what? A decline in morals? Tell it to my Porn-Site manager. Everything you THOUGHT you knew is no longer relevant to anything. The price of admission to the New World - to re-coin an old Explorer's terminology - is knowledge. Power and money come from one's e-line ability to access information quickly. An education can be gleaned in moments by simply buying a machine designed to provide it. In fact, my friends, you yourself are no longer necessary to do anything. No one needs you any longer, no one needs anyone.

And the funniest part is that God is available at the flick of a switch. Perfect moral and ethical decisions can be supplied any who ask by simply Googling the desired result or query. But... why would one even bother to ask, frankly? Who cares what the machine thinks, it's a machine.

The INTERNET is GOD. Why else do you imagine there is such a desperation to try and figure out how to capitalize on universal knowledge? If everyone can easily know everything and talk to anyone, whenever they wish, anywhere, then of what use is competition? If everyone sells wholesale, then why buy retail? Why indeed.

Where the hell are you getting your figures Carol? The fact is that unemployment shot up in Britain under Thatcher to levels unseen since the Great Depression. In May of 1984 in the middle of her reign it hit 11.9%. The country was hit by two major recessions under her watch and manufacturing declined precipitously while the poverty level increased. › Politics › Margaret Thatcher
She used the threat of global warming to decimate the coal industry and bust the miners union and when that was accomplished she suddenly became a skeptic.
When Augusto Pinochet was arrested for massive human rights abuses in Chile she advocated for his release and he spent the rest of his life under house arrest in Britain instead of the jail cell he deserved.
While lavishing praise on Pinochet she referred to Nelson Mandela as a terrorist.

Isn't it nice our president got to party hardy while half the country is pinching every penny?

After flying all over the country in campaign mode the past four years, I suppose he needed another jam session to relieve the stress between his vacations and golf games.

Besides, the secret service needed to guard all those celebrities instead of Americans who want to tour their White House.
