Barack Obama, our next President

<quoted text>You are not a foreign policy expert. I rest my case there. If you looked objectively at Susan Rice's job resume then she is eminently qualified to fill the position of NSC adviser Tom Donilon. On opposite sides of the political spectrum Madeline Albright and Jesse Helms would agree. "Susan Elizabeth Rice (born November 17, 1964) is an American diplomat, former Brookings Institution fellow, the current United States Ambassador to the United Nations, and the National Security Adviser-designate. Rice served on the staff of the National Security Council and as Assistant Secretary of State for African Affairs during President Bill Clinton's second term. Rice was confirmed as UN ambassador by the U.S. Senate by unanimous consent on January 22, 2009. "... "Secretary of State Madeleine Albright, a longtime mentor and family friend to Rice, urged Clinton to appoint Rice as Assistant Secretary of State for African Affairs in 1997.[5] Rice was not the first choice of Congressional Black Caucus leaders, who considered Rice a member of "Washington's assimilationist black elite."[5] At a confirmation hearing chaired by Senator Jesse Helms, Rice, who attended the hearing along with her infant son, whom she was then nursing, made a great impression on senators from both parties and "sailed through the confirmation process."[5]" Check this out: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Susan_Rice

<quoted text> I somewhat agree with you. Although I'm not sure about republicans padding their pockets. It would seem to me that would be a bipartisan thing. Everybody wants their hand in free money. Using an EBT card to save printing the stamps is a good thing. However I think it should make people uncomfortable to be seen using one. It will give them an incentive to get off of them. Hell I say have a special line for EBT only. The catch being the computer registers on the other lanes be programed not to except them. I like that idea! Give them their own lane.
What's next have them wear a star on their clothes like the Nazis did with the Jews? You people are fcked up.

The best part of that wnole deal is he is going to stand before the court, the country, and the world and boost about doing it for Allah, the jihad, and Islam. It's going to blow Obama's 'workplace violence' sheep dip out of the water.

People who aren't interrogated gestapo-style or have their names and addresses posted because of their political beliefs and who aren't treated like they're on the government's "enemy's list" are, in fact, "useful idiots".

Otherwise, who in their right mind in a country that was once proudly hailed as the land of the free not see this is illegal, un-American and a dangerous abuse of power which will only get worse if the complacency we see on here spreads?

I'm seriously very concerned. Our freedoms that once defined us is on the chopping block.

And some on here are the few of many others holding the cleaver.

<quoted text> Well lets see. Out of a 365 day year Saturday and Sunday take up 104 days. That brings it down to 261 days. The federal government takes off what 50 days a year for holidays (a guess). That brings it down to 211 days. A minimum of two weeks vacation brings it down to 201. Oh the logs they are specifically referring to are after the 2010 mid-terms when the democrats got their butts handed to them. So that would be 2011-2012. So 201 times two is 402. 3 times 161 is 483. Yeah right!!!
That would be correct except he only visited 11 times. So do the math on that ya stupid fck.

Now its Clinton's fault? But Republicans controlled Congress for 6 of 8 Clinton years.
You just told me it was the Democrats fault because they took over Congress so why aren't you blaming the Republican Congress under Clinton?
Oh, it goes back much further than that and is much worse than you even imagine apparently.

The Community Reinvestment Act of 1977 was strengthened during the Clinton administration as a federal law that MANDATED lenders to offer credit for the entire market and discouraged restricting credit services - known as redlining. In other words, it encouraged banks to make loans to riskier customers.

President Clinton put the Community Redevelopment Act on steroids.

Bush wanted to offer "qualified buyers" with help with a down payment. Pennies compared to the overbloated stickers on homes during the housing balloon.

Which is largely to blame because the balloon eventually popped.

Unqualified buyers in overpriced homes were screwed.

Amendment VI

In all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial, by an impartial jury of the state and district wherein the crime shall have been committed, which district shall have been previously ascertained by law, and to be informed of the nature and cause of the accusation; to be confronted with the witnesses against him; to have compulsory process for obtaining witnesses in his favor, and to have the assistance of counsel for his defense.

That said, military courts operate under different rules than civilian courts. The accused has no right to use the court as a propaganda platform. Judges in both civilian and military courts have fairly wide latitude to exclude irrelevant testimony. They also have the right to terminate self-representation if necessary to assure a fair trial. This court has been far too tolerant of the unreasonable demands of the terrorist.
