Barack Obama, our next President

Even American liberty hater Piers Morgan can’t ignore President Barack Obama’s lavish taxpayer-funded vacations — taken, no less, as Americans are being economically crippled by the President’s incompetence and unaccountability.

The President and his family must have different preferences of vacation destinations; the Obama daughters are also incredibly well traveled at the taxpayers’ expense. The girls enjoyed a spring break trifecta recently: Hawaii, Aspen and the Bahamas, all in one month.

And when he isn’t on vacation or advocating for government spending increases and gun laws, the President is hanging out with high-profile entertainers. He often does so during luxurious banquets at the White House that American proles are no longer permitted to visit.

Those entertainers, for their relationship with the President, can get the laws worked around in their favor. While lowly average Americans are strictly (and stupidly) forbidden from visiting Cuba except on academic, religious, journalistic or cultural exchange trips, Beyonce and Jay-Z spent their fifth wedding anniversary there… for educational reasons.

In other travel news, Vice President Joe Biden recently traveled to Paris with a healthy entourage for a night. The trip cost you $585,000 for the hotel stay alone. But if you think that is ridiculous, you’re a small person.

You suggest that gays are under no obligation to include straights and religious people, but yet you think that straights must add gays to marriage and religious organizations, that are opposed to such an idea. Your comparison of the KKK and black groups supports our point.
The difference is that straight men can not cruise for sex in places where women and little girls are commonly found, bathrooms, lockers and showers, and with gays/lesbians those are the common places that gays cruise. Perhaps, gays/lesbians should not be allowed in private exposing places where they find people they are sexually attracted to. You know, allowing such is discrimination.
Blacks don't want to go & listen to the KKK.

Gays don't want to listen to Santorum.

Jews don't want skinheads giving commencement addresses to their kids.

Not including bigots & racists is not discriminatory.

No group is interested in support those that are bigoted or racist toward them.

Men don't cruise the women's locker room or bathroom because they aren't allowed in those places not because they wouldn't.

Obama wants to tax cigarettes about another dollar to raise $70 billion to pay for kindergarten for 4 year olds. With tobacco use declining where will the money come from to make up the difference?

On a side note the spell checker thinks Obama is suppose to be Mamba. LMAO!!!

Apparently you haven't been following Flacko's post's on this or his other threads for the last five years eh?

He's been consistently wrong on every topic because he only reads the headline and let's that little chicken that runs around in his mind take over the splainin.

I've known folks like Flack since a teen hanging out at Grange meetings with my dad the farmer.

But unlike your twisted self, Flack is honest, interesting and an important part of what makes this thread worth the time.

Now here you may have a valid argument.

However, Shangra-La doesn't exist.

In an imperfect world, the least amount of imperfection is all we can ask for.

It's about picking the best team knowing both are going to drop the ball but deciding on which one will gain the most yardage.

We had a major change in the game rules in 2008. Unfortunately, only one team has had a chance to run the ball under the new rules.

And we're not seeing too many touchdowns.

The KKK were southern democrats at one time. Blacks listen to the democrat party now. What happened?

Not to listen to any other side of any argument - in this case, gay marriage - is to remain doggedly stubborn and ignorant.

The only bigotry and racism is coming from your side - nonstop the past four years. It's only in your - and their - mind.

Don't give in to being a useful tool out of hatred and a need for power at all costs.

Why are you making up numbers? Just like when you make up what others say. Its the only way you can win an arguement. You are taxed at current rates when withdrawing money. No tax breaks are given
You're an idiot dave, plain and simple.
I realize that the point flew 0ver your head like most intelligent comments.

Its a tax break because there of taxation when the contributions are made is likely higher than the tax rate paid when they money is withdrawn.

If you make jointly $150K taxable, you would pay 28%. But say after retirement, your taxable income is $70,000 and you pay 15%.

Wow, that is a break of 12%.

How did you become such a dumbass?

Bowing to pressure from students, Dr. Ben Carson on Wednesday stepped down as commencement speaker at Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, the Baltimore Sun reported.
In a letter sent to Dr. Paul B. Rothman, dean of the medical school, Carson said his withdrawal from the ceremony "would be in the best interest of the students."
"Given all the national media surrounding my statements as to my belief in traditional marriage, I believe it would be in the best interest of the students for me to voluntarily withdraw as your commencement speaker this year," Carson, the director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins, wrote. He will also step down as the speaker for the diploma ceremony at the university's school of education.
Anti-gay remarks made recently by Carson during an appearance on Fox News sparked a furor among Johns Hopkins students, who circulated a petition to have the renowned neurosurgeon replaced as commencement speaker.
"Marriage is between a man and a woman," Carson told Fox's Sean Hannity during the appearance. "No group, be they gays, be they NAMBLA, be they people who believe in bestiality, it doesn't matter what they are — they don't get to change the definition."
Before making his decision official, Carson said last month that he was prepared to honor the wishes of those students and step down as graduation speaker. Last week, he apologized for those remarks after being rebuked by Rothman.

"The most foolish mistake we could possibly make would be to allow the subject races to possess arms. History shows that all conquerors who have allowed their subject races to carry arms have prepared their own downfall by so doing."
- Adolf Hitler
On November 11, 1938, the Minister of the Interior, Wilhelm Frick, passed Regulations Against Jews' Possession of Weapons. This regulation effectively deprived all Jews of the right to possess firearms or other weapons.
In 1935, Jewish residents were no longer considered citizens to prevent any resistance under the 1938 German Weapons Act.
The 1938 revisions introduced restrictions specifically to prohibit Jews from holding firearms but made it easier for the one-party nazi regime to gain acquisition and transfer of rifles and shotguns as the possession of ammunition.
And then there's China...
Although gun laws in China are becoming difficult to enforce, China's weapons laws are among the world's toughest. Its blanket ban on private ownership of rifles, pistols and even gun replicas is a core tenet of social policy.
Need more?
By the way, Obama has been hellbent on destroying the Republican Party and any and all opposition with the help of his Cheerleaders. Doesn't the notion of a "one-party" system and that one party demonizing law-abiding gun owners even raise a little red flag?
The Republican Party destroyed itself from within and needed no help. The day that GHWB and Babs stood arm in arm with Ralph Reed and family the writing was on the wall babe.
Obama has done nothing beyond make noise about "gun control" and little will be accomplished beyond a bit of tightening up background checks.

Any serious assessment of Monday’s event has to begin by distinguishing the Newtown parents—driven by the desire that no more families should have to experience their grief—from the Obama administration and its cynical, politically motivated operations. They exist in different moral universes.

At the end of the day, the administration and significant sections of the ruling elite view gun control as a means of expanding police powers and the ability of the authorities to keep tabs on the population. Whether the White House will be able to push its present proposals through Congress in the face of stiff ultra-right opposition or not, the general reactionary thrust of government policy is clear. Its “gun control” proposals have—and can have—nothing to do with preventing a repeat of the Sandy Hook killings.

In the first place, is there any convincing evidence that the measures currently promoted by the White House would have prevented or even reduced the tragic dimensions of any of the mass shootings that have occurred in the US in recent decades?

The ban on assault weapons and magazines that hold more than ten rounds may be opposed primarily by the National Rifle Association (NRA) and fascistic elements in the Republican Party, but to present that, along with more background checks, as a solution to outbursts of anti-social violence is an attempt to delude the public and divert its attention from the deep sickness of American society.

In his comments Monday, Obama adopted the same general approach as that taken by his predecessors Bill Clinton and George W. Bush when confronted by earlier mass shootings, and which can be found in his own previous remarks on Sandy Hook and the July 2012 shooting in an Aurora, Colorado movie theater.

The president emphasized the devastating character of the Newtown massacre and referred to “the horror of mass killings” in general, along with “the street crime that’s too common in too many neighborhoods,” without making a single reference to the social source of episodes evidently frequent enough to warrant new federal legislation.

One searches the president’s 3,200 words in vain for the hint of an explanation of the “mass killings” in America, which have resulted in hundreds of deaths and devastation for thousands of families. Obama’s remark that December 14, 2012 was “the toughest day of my presidency” cannot be innocently squared with his total lack of interest in making sense of the Sandy Hook tragedy.

As we commented in December 2012,“The American ruling class has lost the capacity for self-examination. It knows that any serious analysis of the roots of this and other tragedies points back to itself and the society it dominates.”

Why and how a given individual suffers a psychic-homicidal breakdown is an immensely complex process, dependent upon a host of particular factors. If such an event occurred once a half-century, or even one time in a decade, it could perhaps be attributed to largely private and personal reasons, to individual biochemistry gone wrong. It might be, from the statistical point of view, an aberration.
