So you are saying Obama just snookered and used minorities to win over there votes in the election..... illegal immigrants, inner city blacks, etc. Publicly he supports illegal immigrants, but in practice he is deporting them left and right. Shrewd, but cruel.
I see your point Homer, it's a good one.
Obama is merely following the letter of the law.

Our Government is self serving in all circumstances. You ever witness the IRS ruin someone's life? Or egregious eminent domain cases? Perhaps bankrupting companies with ridiculous EPA regulations? It goes on and on, hand them more power, and more abuse will follow. Although some.....Homer for example....wallow in the abuse. You ever see him wallow? He is quite the wallower.

You can't trust the media & Obama. The propaganda makes it sound like they are mainstream, however there is always an ulterior motive with Democrats. Consider all the Democrat controlled "sanctuary cities". Consider a law that was passed in our Vampire legislature this morning at 5AM to allow illegals to now get valid drivers licenses.

The "honest", "caring" Democrats say it's for safety reasons, but anyone who knows what they are doing, know it's just pandering and a step towards getting more votes.

You can't believe anything a Democrat tells you. They always have an ulterior motive.

we should never have been in Vietnam. In WWII, after the Japanese invade Vietnam, we approached Uncle Ho (who was waging a fight for independence from the French colonial power) We told him that if he helped up fight the Japanese, we would give Vietnam its independence and we would arm him to fight the Japanese.
After the war, we reneged on the deal.
BTW Uncle Ho was a great admirer of George Washington.
as for the Vietnam war draft, the only problem with it was that it was applied unevenly.
there were too many deferments (Cheney had 5 and most of the rest of the Bush II administration also avoided service) or other ways to get out of serving.....such as getting in the Texas Air National Guard.
Unlike WWII, where political ties and money didn't get you out of service.
Do you think we would have stayed in Vietnam as long as we did if the children of our elected officials had an equal chance of going over to fight as some poor kid?
Without the draft there would not have been a Vietnam War, at least not of the same size and duration.

By the way, do you have any statistics whatsoever to support your assertions about who was drafted and who served? Or are you just repeating your prejudices?

Never mind, I know it meant absolutely nothing. More empty rhetoric from the admin

It's funny but the left has come to accept conservatives and the tea party wanting less bureaucracy/smaller government as being somehow malicious or threatening - that government can somehow save us all from ourselves.
Bureaucracy was once an undesirable word associated with red tape, confusion and more problems.
Now, it would seem, it's backwards. The left sees bureaucracy going hand-in-hand with big government as a good thing. They must not see the confusion and problems it causes by it's very size - so obese it is handicapped in performing it's usual functions.
So when did bureacracy and big government and surrendering to it become so desirable?
I just don't get it.
You do like the American bureaucracy only when you are getting your public services and goodies that all of us help pay for--how selfish , unpatriotic can you be? You must have flunked Sunday School.

Dumbass Dave will need to eat those words before long.

In fact, the US is already supplying the Al Qaeda rebels.

But nobody told Obama, so he can deny it.

Without a draft , we had the Iraq War under Bush43 that dwarfed the magnitude of the Vietnam War.

Taking a jab at coal miners while living in a coal county.

Did you hear about the county in Oregon whose lumber industry died due to spotted owls and another critter leaving the county with 80,000 residents and no way to fund services.

But lying under oath at a Congressional hearing is perjury, the same as in a court.

And refusing to testify if granted immunity is contempt of Congress, with the same penalties as contempt of court.

The only difference is that Congress makes its own rules.
