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

Here's a scandal:
Why is the House wasting time and money working on a bill restricting abortion that has ZERO chance of passage? Because they get to campaign for the 2014 midterms on MY dime.
Someone explain to me the apparently indivisible connection between "Taxed Enough Already!" and abortion.

The information that first came out described him as a magistrate judge. Apparently, this was incorrect.
But since that's been cleared up...
Why did Holder go "judge shopping" to illegally confiscate a journalist's emails and phone records?
Why did Judge Lamberth overturn the first two judges' refusal to give Holder permission to break the law?
These are two indisputable facts. Got answers?
What took you so long to call out the government for possible abuses of power and rule of law?. You're looking vindictive and resentful at the right wingers losing the 2012 elections because 'the time for the right wing to make these arguments was probably 2004, not 2013.Check this out: http://emptywheel.firedoglake.com/2010/07/13/...

Ya know, a First Responder who's Emergency Response doesn't show the slightest understanding of Maritime Domain Awareness just reflects poor Emergency Management and what does that say about broader concerns like Homeland Security and our National Preparedness in general. Like I was telling my friend Joe who's a Hostage to grilled meats about this Standoff I was having with the wife about pork or beef on the BBQ; he saw that as a Threat to my masculinity and a Breach of marital trust. Whatever, gonna throw some scotch on Ice and Crash before I end up in total Blackout.

No Snow or Sleet in the forecast, that's a Relief not having to worry about being Stranded/Stuck and having to Shelter-in-place on the way to work tomorrow huh?

Black Forrest Fire

This video contains good info for people in fire zones such as stacking all your flammables in one big pile rather than having them scattered and creating numerous fires.

What amazed me with the video is the fire fighters waiting for the fire to approach them within a few feet before reacting in order to conserve resources.

Teaching at the elementary levels requires an understanding of child psychology. There are proven methods that are far more successful than popping your kid in front of a computer.
There is nothing wrong with the public school system. The problem lies in the home. Ay kid that applies himself will get a good education.
Dumbass Dave missed the point that Galt supports public education, controlled at the local level, while recognizing the rights of parents to educate their children themselves. Galt believes that relatively few parents possess that ability.

The new president is more moderate & should push the country in that direction.
It would be good to show some sport for this change by easing certain restrictions.
The ruling clerics understand that their control is also subject to public opinion. They have been overthrown in the past.
Obama has formed a unified worldwide sanction program that have brought about this change. That is how sanctions work.

Bipartisan support for NSA

Former Vice President Dick Cheney on Sunday strongly defended the recently exposed U.S. surveillance programs, which he helped craft in the aftermath of 9/11, but sharply criticized President Obama for his handling of a range of issues from the Syrian civil war to the Benghazi terror attacks.

Cheney, a Republican vice president from 2001 to 2009 under the Bush administration, told “Fox News Sunday” the National Security Agency-led programs have to remain confidential to keep the information from enemies and that he and other U.S. intelligence officials were concerned about a nuclear attack.

“It was 19 guys with box cutters and airplane tickets,” but the next time it could have been a “nuclear attack,” the 72-year-old Cheney said.

He said former NSA contractor Edward Snowden exposing the gathering of information of phone calls and emails has done “enormous damage” to the United State’s anti-terror programs and called Snowden a “traitor.”

So its ok with you that Congress inappropriately diverts our tax dollars into their campaign coffers 'cause it doesn't poll as well?

Its little litmus tests like this that separate the truly small government types from big government partisan hacks.

Guess where you fall?

Bush's Enemies List. Why Did Bush Commit an Illegal, Impeachable Act When All His Lawyers Had to Do Was Walk Into a Secret Court?

http://www.buzzflash.com/analysis/05/12/ana05...

so when are you FOXbots going to acknowledge that the Obama 'scandals' are Bush scandals?

and one has to wonder how you all would be acting if Mitt had been elected and he was doing the same thing. we all know he would've upheld right wing policies, that you tea party freaks would have supported, so this whole thing with Obama is starting to look like something else other than real concern about the issue.

most folks have figured out by now that it has nothing to do with policy. when you folks bitch about Obama doing the same stuff you supported when Bush did it, it's not that hard to see.

but maybe you right wingers wanted Obama to reform Bush policies? been asked and not answered 50 times. take a shot.
