The Big Nausea: Waking Up With an Obama-Ache
Who will defend the indefensible Obama? Answer: There will be fewer and fewer Obamapologists, as each day passes.“For the monumentally dysfunctional Black Misleadership Class, the winding down of the Age of Obama is cause for frantic repositioning, and for the revising of their own histories.”Black folks have been forced to come to grips with the finality of Obama’s second term.”
The Obama Hangover has begun. The drunken delirium that descended on Black America after the pale Democratic caucuses of Iowa endorsed a brown-skinned corporatist just after New Years Day, 2008 – conveying white “viability” on a Great Black Hope – is definitively over. It’s the morning-after in Black America, a scene of economic and political ruin bathed in the searing daylight of Obama’s second term and umpteenth betrayal.
It would be easy to say that the Great Nausea of 2013 was occasioned by Obama’s blunt object assault on Social Security and the whole array of entitlements. However, the First Black President’s obituary is not written in his budget. The onset of post-Obamaism has more to do with the calendar than anything else. Since Election Day, November 6, Black folks have been forced to come to grips with the finality of Obama’s second term – the impending emergence from the dream. There is the sound of a finger snapping.“In a few moments, you will wake up.”The awakening will be uneven and, for many, dreadful: a dreamscape dissolving into the rubble-strewn nightmare left by the Great Recession, a catastrophe that set African Americans back as much as two generations, but which was not subjectively experienced as such by huge segments of the Black community. Instead, reality was subsumed by the mere presence of a Black person in the White House.
African Americans have an immense sense of pride in Barack Obama as President of the United States and he is unequivocally liked. He receives a 91% favorable rating. Seventy-two percent believe that President Obama's election has helped them while only 4% believe his election has hurt them.

Boston bombing suspect cites U.S. wars as motivation, officials say
The officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity to describe an ongoing investigation, said Dzhokhar and his older brother, Tamerlan , who was killed by police as the two attempted to avoid capture, do not appear to have been directed by a foreign terrorist organization.
Rather, the officials said, the evidence so far suggests they were “self-radicalized” through Internet sites and U.S. actions in the Muslim world.

it'll be interesting to see how FOX runs with that one. if at all.
I think I said before that if during an invasion of your sovereign country, Americans managed to destroy your house, livelihood, kill your mom and baby sister, and cripple your dad, you're going to hate them. However, I never even thought of all the potential terrorists Bush & Co. had managed to create within the Muslim faith...that drunken imbecile should be brought up on charges greater than Tsarnaev, imho

You need to get out more often Flacko.

Tons of weed and coke have been coming into Florida daily since the 1970's via every imaginable means. By land by sea and by air.

Yeah__the cute little sub would meet drug running high speed boats off shore which would run the product through the thousand islands to Immokalee where the Mexicans would distribute it through their vast network. Old news__been going on for thirty years.

Think trucks Flacko, trucks coming through customs in TX, AZ and CA. Does NM have any border major border crossings?

How many trucks (tractor trailers) do you think enter the US daily through Brownsville TX Flack?

<quoted text> Take pleasure in this response because, you won't be getting another one dumass! You're misinformed, dumb, & delusional. Was the black community doing better under Bush, No. Our current situation is because of Bush, & opposition from the republican side of the isle. The democrats of today are the republicans of yesterday, well known fact bucko! Who pushed for education reform & came up with the bright idea of" The No Child Left Behind Act?" Sure wasn't the left! What was the result dumass? Millions of urban city children being ushered through school, not learning a damn thing, but feeling like they accomplished something because they passed/graduated. Dumass, in reality it doesn't matter what party has been in office, the results have been the same. Nobody knows what Obama's legacy will be until 2014, when the obstructionist are voted out for folks of more compliance. Dumass!

Hey Mr Peabody I could care less about pot and coke. I worry more about stingers, dirty bombs, and suitcase style nukes. The point is on the roads at the borders, just like the ports, there are radiation detectors. If a sub with a nuke cruises into the bay there at Tampa and sets it off it won't matter how long they have been running drugs.

"The Boston Bombers were Muslim. So?"

"Today's train bombers are Muslim. So?"

Our political and media elite's response (in a screechy, screechy HillarySpeak voice):
"What difference, at this point, does it make?!!!"

the politically correct media are angrier at chick-a-fil than anti-american muslims. they were more upset by Michael Vick killing dogs than Grossnell killing babies. and if Sarah Palin had been in a psychiatric hospital that would have been disclosed and often--unlike their recent kid glove treatment of leftwing nutjob Ashley Judd.

Martial law is defined as temporary military control over designated regions on an emergency basis.

On Friday, April 19 — four days after 2 bombs ripped through the finish line at the Boston Marathon, Martial law was imposed on the residents of Boston by military authorities searching for a skinny 19-year-old kid.

Boston residents were forced to remain inside their homes — or ordered to evacuate their homes at gunpoint. The cost to shut down the entire city of Boston, including buses, trains, schools, grocery stores, gas stations and shopping malls, will tally in the hundreds of millions of dollars. The massive military show of force failed to find Dzhokhar Tsarnaev by the time the day-long lockdown was lifted.
