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

Obama is managing to stay under the radar so far and Nixon was eventually implicated as part of the coverup, but the implausibility of Obama's lack of knowledge about any of these growing scandals is becoming increasingly suspect.
Of course, many of us believe his feigning lack of knowledge is PART of the coverup.
It took a couple years to untangle Watergate.

Galt considers man-made global warming an unproven theory, in which case we should be cautious in making drastic changes to our way of life and economy until there is more evidence.
Or does Homer believe that the evidence is so overwhelming and the need so urgent that we must turn the world upside down immediately?
Homer's fellow travelers on the left are completely convinced about man-made global warming to the absolute exclusion of anything else, a position based on politics and not on science.
Calm down JG, Homer is with you as far as it being an unproven theory. You however are unlike your fellow travelers on the right who are completely convinced that man-made global warming is in no way a possibility, and their position is also based on politics and not on science.

HERE'S A LITTLE RECAP OF LAST YEAR.........

Coincidence? Just wondering..........

Alabama beat Arkansas,
and Arkansas fired their coach.

Alabama beat Tennessee,
and Tennessee fired their coach.

Alabama beat Auburn,
and Auburn fired their coach.

Then Alabama beat Notre Dame, and the Pope resigned.......

Damn, I wish the White House had a team!

Galt thinks that man-made global warming and the danger of these seeds are equally believable unproven theories. The only difference is that the safety/hazard of the seeds can be proven, one way or the other.
Not so much for man-made global warming.
Sterile Seeds: Why Worry? "These technologies are extremely dangerous," explains "because over 1.4 billion farmers - primarily poor farmers in Africa, Asia and Latin America - depend on farm-saved seed as their primary seed source. Monsanto GMO seeds do not germinate. If farmers can't save seed, they can't continue to adapt crops to their unique farming environments, and that spells disaster for global food security, meaning all seeds must be purchase cronies like Monsanto"

"Genetic seed sterility is not about improving the productivity or quality of crops, it's a quest to increase seed industry profits." "First and foremost, these technologies are intended to force farmers to buy seed every season and to take still more crop production control away from farmers and rely on GMO's."

Show me where the military requested it in their plan and it was denied.
It wasn't just the Humvees, none of our vehicles was properly armored against IED's__even our heaviest tanks were getting the tracks blown off. It was as though no one at the top had ever heard of IED's. And don't forget that the soldiers themselves were asking family members to purchase and send body armor for them because the military didn't have enough and much of what it did have was for sht.

Too many wolves in sheep's clothing have risen to power to do their misdeeds and gotten away with it in the past by complacency and gullibility on the part of the people who were able to be successfully bamboozled.

Why couldn't that happen here considering the same mentality of half the populace and a media tied around the finger of the power elite who are clearly abusing that power?

This concerns me greatly.

The GMO patents reveal that companies are developing suicide seeds whose genetic traits can be turned on and off by an external chemical "inducer" -- mixed with the company's patented agrochemicals.

In the not-so-distant future, we may see farmers planting seeds that will develop into productive (but sterile) crops only if sprayed with a carefully prescribed regimen that includes the company's proprietary pesticide, fertilizer or herbicide. The latest version of Monsanto's suicide seeds won't even germinate unless exposed to a special chemical, while AstraZeneca's technologies outline how to engineer crops to become stunted or otherwise impaired if not regularly exposed to the company's chemicals.

It's best to just assume that GMOs are no different from biological weapons you idiot?

Since when is eating genetically modified shit good for you idiot? Hell the seeds can't germinate..

OBAMA MAY NOT BE A VICTIM BUT HE IS FULLY CONTROLLED...You and them should all be arrested and tried for crimes against nature and human kind. You are corrupt, evil and a dope!

One of your Demo-Socialist US Senators, an idiot named Whitehouse from Rhode Island, was blaming the Oklahoma tornado on man-made global warming just as people were dying.

Congressman Who Gets Millions In Farm Subsidies: Food Stamps Stealing ‘Other People’s Money

Fincher invoked the Bible in his defense of the devastating cuts, quoting,“The one who is unwilling to work shall not eat.”

At a Holiday Inn in Memphis over the weekend, Fincher expanded on his version of the Christian social gospel:“The role of citizens, of Christians, of humanity is to take care of each other, but not for Washington to steal from those in the country and give to others in the country.”

While Fincher interprets food assistance for the needy as “stealing,” he has not similarly condemned the Farm Bill’s massive agricultural subsidies. In fact, he supported a proposal to expand crop insurance by $9 billion over the next 10 years. Fincher has a great personal stake in maintaining these particular government handouts, as the second most heavily subsidized farmer in Congress and one of the largest subsidy recipients in Tennessee history:

USDA data collected in EWG’s 2013 farm subsidy database update — going live tomorrow –shows that Fincher collected a staggering $3.48 million in “our” money from 1999 to 2012. In 2012 alone, the congressman was cut a government check for a $70,000 direct payment. Direct payments are issued automatically, regardless of need, and go predominantly to the largest, most profitable farm operations in the country.

Fincher’s $70,000 farm subsidy haul in 2012 dwarfs the average 2012 SNAP benefit in Tennessee of $1,586.40, and it is nearly double of Tennessee’s median household income. After voting to cut SNAP by more than $20 billion, Fincher joined his colleagues to support a proposal to expand crop insurance subsidies by $9 billion over the next 10 years.
