Barack Obama, our next President

I agree. Nothing is more futile than trying to control something none of us can control-History. Who knows how folks one hundred plus years from now will perceive things. Put it out there and let people think it through for themselves.
Anything else would be ignorance!

Why do you think it is outdated? Because you want to a re-do so it favors your positions more?

The fact that you interjected race inappropriately makes it a racist remark.

WEST PALM BEACH —

A 79-year-old Palm Beach woman on Thursday didn’t just avoid a prison term for evading taxes on $43 million in foreign accounts. A federal judge said Mary Estelle Curran deserves a presidential pardon.

Blasting the government for prosecuting the woman who had already paid a whopping $21.6 million penalty to the Internal Revenue Service, U.S. District Judge Kenneth Ryskamp placed Curran on probation for one year. He then immediately revoked it.

“You were on probation for about five seconds,” he told her.

He then urged Curran’s attorney, Roy Black, to seek a presidential pardon.

In his 43 years of practicing law, Black said, he had never heard a judge make such a statement

The government has a lot of discretion, and the government decided to make a felon out of this woman

LOL, oh barf. Did you see the part where Bill Clinton commented on the nude paintings?
The joke about the sketches was most appreciated by Bush himself.

Thousands of Africans are alive today thanks to Bush's humanitarian efforts in the AIDs epidemic.

Do you not find that admirable?

Thousands of women in the Middle East now go to school, have jobs and even hold office thanks to Bush's belief that freedom belongs to everyone.

Do you, as a women, not find that equally admirable?

Iraqis now vote for elected leaders thanks to Bush's courage in doing what even Clinton would have done post 9/11.

All former democratic presidents couldn't praise Bush enough for his contributions and service to this country and to humankind.

You don't agree with your party's former presidents?

Did you see Obama's speech? I'm convinced he now sees Bush in a whole different light.

Yesterday was a great day for America. It reminded us why Bush's approval ratings are now tied with Obama's. He was a much better president who had strong convictions than the weasels made him out to be for political gain which, as we are witnessing, is backfiring.

But as the old saying goes, "what goes around, comes around."

I love it when you right whiners make really stupid posts & think you speak the truth. It proves just how stupid & uninformed you idiots really are.
Do yourself a favor & learn the truth about Planned Parenthood & quit making such a ass out of yourself.
"real dumb"
You are "real dumb", you are also a racists, a hypocrite, a liar, a phoney and a moron.
In the past week you have posted your idiocy about 125 times. Those posts received nearly 200 posts which pointed out the BS of the crap you spew. Do you practice being stoopid? Whether you practice or not you are a grate example of stoopidity.
To be fair 12 other posts showed ignorance in that they supported the crap you spew.

From CNN

"Zubeidat and Tamerlan Tsarnaev had previously fallen under the suspicion of Russian authorities concerned they were following radical ideologies.

Russian authorities had raised concerns to U.S. authorities about her and her son, sources told CNN. But a U.S. official said that the Russian’s case at the time was “thin.”

So momma was also on the TIDE list? This does not surprise me. The brothers appeared to be more followers than leaders which happens when you have a very vocal, opinionated parent like Zubeidat.

I call myself the new wave of fiscally Conservative liberertarian because:
I believe in science, but only when its actually been proven.
I believe corporations are businesses (not people), but that they are also equal legs of a stool that will fall down without an equal ethical other. The third leg is a non-intrusive government.
I believe in equal rights regardless of sexual orientation, but the playing field should be level by REMOVING taxation/incentives, not expanding them.
I believe that 47% of Americans aren’t looking for a government handout because they've already found it.
I believe we must learn from history, not repeat it. The begining of that lesson is decreasing government activity to a crawl.
I believe women deserve the same rights as men, but no more. I am undecded if that includes driving or posting on Topix.
I believe our sexual orientation is something we’re born with, not something we choose. I also dont give a sht and dont want to have it forced down my throat (especially "literally").
I believe immigration is PART of what made this country great, but its unsustainable and unrealistic to expect it to be an infinite process.
I believe freedom for all means freedom for all, except when its on my dime (or anyone else's).
I believe we have the right to own guns. Now if leftist phags started advocating actually punishing the criminals who abuse them (instead of trying to infringe Constitutional rights), we'd be in business.
I believe in a living wage, and the necessity to work hard to earn it.
I believe most rich people have created/expanded their wealth on their own thru legal hard work, unless they have last names like Kennedy, or Pelosi.
I believe welfare sometimes helps the poor, but is horribly abused.
There retard, I helped you out...
GREAT POST! Thank you.

That's what Presidents do, present and former. It was an event; of course they're all going to say nice things. They're politicians, afterall. Bush looked like he was crying when President Obama spoke. Barbara Bush was sitting next to the President having a grand old time. Pres. Bush Sr. looked unwell.
The quip about the nude paintings was hilarious.
All Presidents share that commonality that no one else will ever know. Jimmy Carter was close friends with Gerald Ford.
