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 ...

It snowed in a few New England states yesterday a week before June.
It's going to be summer and hot soon enough though. You might try selling the global warming "it's getting hot in here" theorgy next month.
Before early record snows begin falling again in November.
And this last week of May ,the Northeastern states will be facing its first 90 degree or more heatwave of the 'summer' as southern regions continue heating up-- the hotter weather in the south as it moves northward will clash with the colder , upper level disturbance causing the freak snow-showers(heavy precipitation) and create one of the preconditions for the super-storm tornadoes in the mid-west and prairie regions. What can be more of an example of extreme weather events in climate change?

This is just another example of race based voting and the utter confusion and incompetence it leads to (Obama, anyone?). Not only does it speak to the quality of the candidate but also the obstinate gullibility of specific voters.

Don't need to, son.

But you do. The Constitution clearly gives Congress the power to give any president military authority in any kind of conflict, war, attack or otherwise.

They did.

This should be obvious to everyone. People are really divided into two groups: Those who don't pretend to believe the obvious lies coming out of the Democrats' mouths, and those who pretend to believe the obvious lies.
Galt is spouting the N.R.A. position-- keep local law enforcement from doing their jobs on keeping the streets safe so the greater gun violence can drive panic buying of more guns from the N.R.A.'s primary clients--the corporate gun & ammo industry. The N.R.A. and the U S gun industry put profits above human needs. That's morally disgusting and wrong!

I can be longwinded sometimes, but we all agree veterans' not receiving benefits is a big problem.

No pointing fingers of blame at anyone but somebody needs to fix this.

Perhaps hiring people in the private sector who know how to sort it all out is the solution?

"What difference would it make?" who the hell cares?" says the O'bama administration. We don't have time to worry about McCain. I am sure the O'bama has another video in the can to prove why McCain was killed or captured.

Let's see now...
News release Friday before a long holiday weekend:
Eric Holder commits a felony and signs authority to bug journalists without any evidence of a crime of any type being investigated.
Let's read the 4th Amendment again:
"The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized."
What this means is: First, Eric Holder does not have the constitutional authority to issue a warrant; and Second, there was no "Oath of affirmation" made to any judge who has the constitutional authority to issue a warrant.
Here is evidence with Eric Holder's signature on paper of Eric Holder committing a felony.
What do you think is going to happen now? I'll predict the future: RINOs will perform their assigned function and obstruct any justice coming from Congress.
“After extensive deliberations, and after following all applicable laws, regulations and policies, the Department sought an appropriately tailored search warrant under the Privacy Protection Act,” said a department official, referring to a federal law that governs under what circumstances information can be subpoenaed from the news media.“And a federal magistrate judge made an independent finding that probable cause existed to approve the search warrant.”

Nevertheless, said the official, who spoke on condition of anonymity, Holder “understands the concerns that have been raised by the media and has initiated a re-evaluation of existing department policies and procedures.” The official said the department must strike “the appropriate balance” between preventing leaks of classified information and “First Amendment rights,”adding that passage of a new media shield law “and appropriate updates to the department”s internal guidelines” will help achieve that.

I think you better read my post, & if you already have, reread it! You're preaching to the choir on that one buddy! You people watched Bush tear the the prosperity Clinton built to shambles, then reelected him under the retarded ideology of " Bush messed it up, let him fix it!" Lol. & you're pointing the finger. Seriously!

Yes, of course,'people in the private sector'---you mean big insurance corporations who have already denied U S military veterans healthcare coverage for secret unspecified reasons or 'preexisting conditions'.

Carol, Carol, Carol, The IRS regulations that you cited refer to IRS personnel requesting disability retirement and has nothing to do with the ACA. You see I did read the whole thing.
Your second citation is an opinion piece . So what?
Considering the IRS already abused its power, opinions have become rather important - especially if you're on the "wrong side" and targeted under Obamacare.

But you're on the "right side" - so no need for you to worry.

Even so...
New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin failed to implement an evacuation plan ordering residents to a shelter without any provisions for food, water, security or sanitary conditions.
Nagin delayed an emergency evacuation order which led to hundreds of deaths of people who by that time could not find any way out of the city.
School bus parking lots were full of school buses that Mayor Nagin refused to be used in evacuation.
Local and state governments have the primary responsibility for local disasters including both Governor Blanco and Mayor Nagin.
Also, Amtrak ran a special train to move equipment out of the city and had offered to take as many passengers as was room, but the city declined and the train left New Orleans with no passengers on board.
The nonpartisan Congressional Research Service concluded that Blanco did not request assistance with evacuation and that Governor Blanco was reluctant to issue a mandatory evacuation order until President Bush called to personally ask that she give the order. Even then, the mandatory evacuation order was issued by Mayor Nagin.
So even if the funds weren't there and the levees did collapse, the state and local governments failed to save lives that could have been saved and they dropped the ball.
What's even more disturbing is a Representative from the New Orleans area used National Guard resources to check on his own personal belongings and property during the height of the rescue efforts. He used his political position to delay two heavy trucks, a helicopter and several National Guard troops for over an hour to stop at his home and retrieve "a laptop computer, three suitcases, and a box about the size of a small refrigerator".
There you have it. The priority mentaility of a liberal.
It's been explained many times before Carol, The Mayor of New Orleans has no authority over the public schools which are governed/owned by the Orleans Parish School Board. As a further complication over half of the students in New Orleans attend charter schools.

As you should know, the hurricane winds and rain were one event and the flooding that occurred when the levees failed another event. The winds began on 8/29 and the flooding continued through the 8/31.

So you admit you lied.
The tax exempt status you idiot Tea Party people were seeking said politics could not be their primary focus & you fricken morons sought tax exempt status for "Tea Party This" or "tea Party That".
Its like going into a "No Pets Allowed" area toting a cat carrier & wondering why you were singled out & stopped to see what was in the carrier.
Or, acting 'surprised' that a cop stopped you after you dressed up like Charles Manson , tattooed on your forehead, " I shoot cops" then walked into a police station.

Perhaps, the system wasn't designed to to supply benefits for continuous wars. Just maybe, it was designed to as a fail safe for those who sacrificed their lives for the betterment of the country but, not built to carry the burden of back to back to back wars. Reagan, Bush, & Bush. 3 warlords. Clinton & now Obama, the maintenance men elected to clean up the Republican mess. You're not pointing fingers because, you know like I know, the incompetence falls on the Republicans & their American empire ideology that keeps this country at war more than the Bible!

Republican wars (Gulf War, War on Terror)
4,976 (as of August, 2010)

Democrat wars (WW I, WW II, Korea, Vietnam)
636,438

Let's reiterate once more:
Democrats killed 636,438 Americans
Republicans killed 4,976 Americans

That makes Democrats 128x bigger warmongers than Republicans.
So the next time a lying lib calls you a warmonger, you can hit them with some REAL facts!

Clinton left a "projected surplus" and a stain in the White House, nothing more. That being said, your refusal to live in the present indicates you know how serious a threat to this country Obama really is. He has taken a crises, of which he was complicit, and used it in a predictable way. Some of you saw it coming but didn't care, you were blinded by the dark.
