Barack Obama, our next President

DEATH is not far. It is upstairs from me as I write this and it is horrible indeed. I just visited with it. To see the ones you love brought low by no more than time. Often the watchers remark, "Gee, you're up late." And I am... DEATH is. DEATH is not quick nor is he clean. He is a horrid ogre with accompanying sounds from another world. My last kiss is sweet in a way, but it's very final. Carol, I am engaged in death as we speak. I'm an expert in it. Tonight I'll take one soul, perhaps, hundreds, thousands. But to the people concerned it is the only death that matters. Memento Mori, my dear. I deal DEATH like a house of cards, which is to say, as if he were Mexican.

The point is, Gustav II Adolf was a far more glorious ruler and far braver in combat than your idol, Adolf.

How amusing for DEATH to be chronicling death. A dozen feet away an old woman with many sins lays dying, gasping for air like a fish, gutted, eaten even, but without the perspective to realize she's dead. Judge not... there are pieces of wisdom in bibles, and there are droves of them, but nothing prepares you for DEATH does it, carol? There's no prayer, no blessing, no sermon that prepares you for the flying vomit and shit and suffering which accompanies leaving the world. Love you guys. God bless.

Yes, Perot's campaign hurt GHW Bush. So what? We had a similar problem with Ralph Nader in 2000.
I recall at the end of GHW Bush's term in 1993, we had a moderate recession in full swing. That marked the end of Reagan's economic "triumph". It was based on an unsustainable Cold War military build-up.
As for Clinton, he also left office with a moderate recession, but with a balanced budget and the least government spending in the years from 1981 to 2009.
The massive spending which has led us to the current crisis began with Reagan, was perpetuated by GHW, slowed down by Clinton, then ruinously revived by W.
Case closed.
Clinton had a Republican-controlled Congress for 6 of his 8 year term.

That was the difference in his eventually moving to the center and signing legislation like the Welfare Reform Act.

Remember Clinton's State of the Union Address when he told the American public the era of big government was over?

He was more Republican than Democrat when compared to the radical liberal sitting in the White House now which, by the way, defies all logic in this parallel universe we now seem to be living.

Cal Tech, we are getting a front row seat to a chapter in history that could change everything we think we know in a heartbeat. Domestic and global turmoil is brewing and things are starting to heat up. It's not about whether I expect the worst to happen or not. It's about the economic and geopolitical climate in which we live and the uncertainty of not knowing which shoe will drop first.

The majority of Americans, 61%, believe we are going in the wrong direction. That many of us can't be wrong.

The unrest on the global front is concerning but it's like a pot boiling on the back burner. Right here at home, we are facing the very real possibility of reaching a point of no return if the dollar continues to lose its value or we can't stop the bleeding of job losses and out of control spending.

When some liberals pretend like none of this happening or scoffs at anyone who points out what should be the obvious, I feel compelled to remind them of the lessons of history and why we would be wise to learn from them.

The hunger for power can happen anywhere. History, if anything, teaches us that attempts to silence the opposition by using demoralizing and demonizing tactics and hate speech for the sole purpose of total control coupled with complacency by the majority will not have a good outcome.

We are at that same crossroads. So, yes, the worst can happen even here unless more Americans begin to wise up.

I will be here at 2, 3, 4 in the morning because I'll need to clean the shit out of her bed, wash her body, tend to her untendable thirst. And you? You'll be telling me about how a mere teacher has no rights to a social contract with her society. Good luck with that, I need to go and wash my hands. When I am done with you, carol, you will be ashamed of yourself. Not for just being a whore that cowtows to men as if they were in any way an authority, but because you've forgotten your own essence, you silly cow. Heart-plucker, huh? I'm a killer, carol, I'm gonna take you with me. Excuse me, my loathsome teacher mother is screaming in pain. BRB

Viet Nam had nothing to do with the northern communists trying to enslave the south? Because that's what happened when we left.
Why is it virtually no one ever wants to emigrate to the people's paradise's like Cuba, China, Viet Nam, N. Korea, etc.?
First, your remark is somewhat irrelevant.

My post was a rebuttal to the claim that Wilson and FDR "got us into world wars", which is true, but you express this in a contemptuous manner inferring that there wasn't a good reason for them doing so.

Then there was EasyEed's statement that Kennedy and LBJ got us involved in Vietnam. This ignores the previous commitments of the Eisenhower administration along with extremely aggressive covert activities of the CIA which were intent on provoking a war.

Did you know that Vietnam was a single, undivided country until 1954? The splitting of the country into northern and southern halves was an agreement reached by the French and Vietminh parties at the Paris Peace Accords of the same year.

The purpose of the division was to allow French and Vietminh forces the opportunity to disengage and pull back to their respective territory. The French agreed to pull out.

There was also a provision within the accords which called for a reunification plebiscite in 1956 in the South, so that it could decide whether or not it wished to reunite with the North.

To make a long story short, the CIA put President Ngo Diem in power through rigged elections in 1954. Then with our blessing, he cancelled the 1956 Plebiscite. But Diem went further. "The Pentagon Papers" points out how Diem's secret police rounded up communists engaged in peaceful political activity and imprisoned them.

But the CIA went further. Before the ink was dry on the 1954 Paris Accords, the CIA set up shop in Vietnam and began running sabotage operations in the North.

The North did not react right away to these provocations. But in 1959, their leadership finally gave the green light to fight back against the Diem regime.

China and North Korea are vile dictatorships. Vietnam is far more benign, although the communists retain a monopoly on political power. Socialists nations like Venezuela and Nicaragua have democratic elections and are not totalitarian.

What's the worst that can happen, carol? Korea? The budget? Democrats? Wanna know what's the worst that can happen, carol? It's when someone you love dies in your arms. Gun control? No problem. Muslim radicalism? Kill 'em. Enjoy your life, carol. In the end you will see no one but me, and be aware, when you do, I'll remember your cavalier way with other people's lives. Asl Pastor bob about that... and then tell him to run for I am inconsolable.

Do NOT make the mistake of offering me your meaningless sympathy, for, be forewarned, I will offer you or you daughter none at all.

Yes, I'll agree the GOP Congress deserves credit for balancing the budget and keeping spending in check during Clinton's time in office.

But that raises the question... why were they so tight with Clinton while giving Reagan and both Bushes everything they wanted?

The answer is simple. Spending is what makes politicians popular. So GOP motives were based more on whittling down Clinton's chances for re-election and his legacy than anything else. Try to remember they went after him throughout the six years they held the majority, even impeaching him for lying about an extra-marital affair.

The same GOP which let GW Bush off the hook for launching a war of aggression based on lies.

Returning to the spending issue, the enormous deficits we have today started with Reagan, slowed greatly under Clinton, then went wild again under GW Bush.

The strength of a nation is greatly based on its wealth. Well, you Republicans are mostly to blame for the state we're in. You're only frugal when it hurts the political opposition.

To suggest the rot began under Clinton who added only 1.6 trillion to the natonal debt, compared to the 5.7 tallied by GW Bush is sheer nonsense, and you know better.

I fundamentally do not believe in gun control because such laws give the police unlimited opportunity to plant weapons and falsely convict. I also believe the 2nd Amendment does not allow government to disarm the people, although with some limits with regard to military ordenance.

I think the liberals are mostly interested in greater regulation of handguns, not firearms in general.

Comparing Obama and Chavez to Hitler is ridiculous. Bush, with his big lies, torture prisons, "pre-emptive war" and the Patriot Act is a much closer analogy.

Reagan raised taxes to appease the Democrats who promised cuts in spending in return.

True to form, they backed down on their part of the bargain.

You can't forget 111 Democrats voted for the Iraq War. In fact, it was they who were lying to the American public when they said they were denied access to the same Intel. They, of course, were privy to the same Intel.

The economy was actually doing well under Bush's economic policies after 9/11 and before the housing bubble burst.

He can't be blamed for that when more Democrats resisted oversight of Fannie and Freddie for five years leading up to the crisis in spite of multiple warnings by both Bush and Bernancke.

It's where we are now that counts though. It's frankly not logical to blame Bush for increasing the deficit by a fraction of the present deficit increased by Obama and Congressional democrats.

But it's getting late, so goodnight.

Clinton signed the Iraq Liberation Act of 1998 and every single democrat voted and said Saddam was an eminent threat and Saddam had to be removed three years prior to 9/11...

Harry Reid Senate bill 1867, which passed the DemocRatic Senate with an alarming DemocRatic majority, signed by obama allows the military and Obama to arrest American citizens, keep them without trial, detain, and/or murder anti-government threats...

Contrary to your claim above, Reagan reduced taxes.

Twice as many Republicans voted for the Iraq War than Democrats.

The Democrats were privy to the cherry-picked data coming out of the Pentagon's OSP which was created and run by Cheney.

The economy under Bush did somewhat well but was driven by an Alan Greenspan-created low-interest rate driven real estate bubble.

The real villain in the real estate bubble were the banks who made predatory loans because it was profitable, not because Dodd and Frank made them. These banks are now under indictment and some have been fined heavily.

I won't bother with the rest of your BS. In Carol La-La Land, Repubicans are perfect and never do anything wrong.

The history of Iraq with regard to its obligation to disarm is mixed. In 1998, the UN inspectors were in doubt. In particular, Scott Ritter resigned in protest. But a year later, the tide began to turn. Ritter completely reversed his earlier verdict. By 2003, Hans Blix felt Iraq was in general compliance, with some unresolved issues he felt could be resolved within a few months.
Harry Reid Senate bill 1867, which passed the DemocRatic Senate with an alarming DemocRatic majority, signed by obama allows the military and Obama to arrest American citizens, keep them without trial, detain, and/or murder anti-government threats...
To be honest, 93 Senators signed off on the bill which means A LOT of Republicans voted for it, too. Obama has promised to veto it. There is another bill, HR 1540 (in the House) which is similar but has not been voted on.

I'm glad you brought this to my attention. It may well end my support for the Democrats. I hope you will take a similar stand with the GOP.
Obama: My administration does not torture. We kill..
The Jews gave up their guns, turned in their weapons, big and more government and Hitler took care of the Jews..
I think you're confusing the Armenians, who turned in their guns to the Turks, with the German Jews, who did not. The point you attempt to make here in rather clumsy fashion I do agree with.

As for the quote you provide, I believe it is this when stated in full:

"I was clear throughout this campaign and was clear throughout this transition that under my administration the United States does not torture," Obama said, when asked at the news conference whether he would continue the Bush administration's policy of harsh interrogation. "We will abide by the Geneva Conventions. We will uphold our highest ideals."
