Yeah, I can see your point. A successful buisnessman who had a "sterling record" according to the former Democratic president and who actually led something - like the governor of a state - would definitely be the less desirable choice because of his personal beliefs than someone who leads by default and flies by the seat of his pants creating an unprecedented lack of trust in government, the likes of which we have never seen before.
You da' man, Lincoln. Good job with your amazingly accurate means of deducing any situation...<tongue in cheek>...

<quoted text> We have tips that you associate with 'questionable groups' too , but only in states like Russia that doesn't have a Bill of Rights' would "a right of association and free speech" be considered to be 'radicalizing' an individual. In fact, the Russians did not tell the F.B.I much of anything useful in the investigation of the Tsarnaev brothers--the F.B.I. found out on their own --the Russians asked the F.B.I. for help, it wasn't the other way around like you pretend.
This is a no brainer. Russia was RIGHT the individual was radicalized as he exploded a bomb in a crowd.

<quoted text>We know more about Obama than any other person on this planet.
We only know what he wants us to know and what you're being told you need to know.

But, you're right that we do know plenty about his past connections and associations. And that he won twice in the Illinois Senate because of "controversy" and "scandals" involving his opponents who were forced to drop out so he won unopposed by a slim margin. Same with the U.S. Senate...won unopposed because of a "leaked" scandal.

But that's corrupt Chicago politics for ya'. Now it's in the White House.

Hi anyway, Homer.

Boy, you're still dodging the subject. If I have to take my belt off and tan your hide to get an answer out of you, it won't be pretty.
Now, here's the post again. Break out your Big Chief tablet and tell us why you support Obama and the Democrats leading the government in a revolt against the constitutional republic:
... anything to avoid talking about the real issue.
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.
Yup. We'll most likely have to fight another war over the principles written in the Constitution.
What do you think? Do you think the Democrats are willing to fight a war to eliminate the Constitution?
Or, do you think they plan to fight a war to stay in the White House so a follow-on administration can't discover all the treason going on there now?
I'm thinking, considering there are Wahhabists in the White House while Wahhabism is at war with the United States, it is likely there are hanging offenses happening.
You keep threatening to take your belt off son.

Do you think it might be because even they know it's fraudulent?
Because it's not?

You know, you're free to sue them.

Why don't you exercise your rights for a change instead of waiting for someone else to do it for you, son?

A gallon-sized jar of whole pickles is something to behold. The jar is the size of a small aquarium. The fat green pickles, floating in swampy juice, look reptilian, their shapes exaggerated by the glass. It weighs 12 pounds, too big to carry with one hand. The gallon jar of pickles is a display of abundance and excess; it is entrancing, and also vaguely unsettling. This is the product that Wal-Mart fell in love with: Vlasic's gallon jar of pickles.
Wal-Mart priced it at $2.97--a year's supply of pickles for less than $3! "They were using it as a 'statement' item," says Pat Hunn, who calls himself the "mad scientist" of Vlasic's gallon jar. "Wal-Mart was putting it before consumers, saying, This represents what Wal-Mart's about. You can buy a stinkin' gallon of pickles for $2.97. And it's the nation's number-one brand."
Therein lies the basic conundrum of doing business with the world's largest retailer. By selling a gallon of kosher dills for less than most grocers sell a quart, Wal-Mart may have provided a ser-vice for its customers. But what did it do for Vlasic? The pickle maker had spent decades convincing customers that they should pay a premium for its brand. Now Wal-Mart was practically giving them away. And the fevered buying spree that resulted distorted every aspect of Vlasic's operations, from farm field to factory to financial statement.
Indeed, as Vlasic discovered, the real story of Wal-Mart, the story that never gets told, is the story of the pressure the biggest retailer relentlessly applies to its suppliers in the name of bringing us "every day low prices." It's the story of what that pressure does to the companies Wal-Mart does business with, to U.S. manufacturing, and to the economy as a whole. That story can be found floating in a gallon jar of pickles at Wal-Mart.
I wonder how many gallons Flack has at his house?
I'm begging you all please stop shopping at Wal-Mart and slowly killing the U.S.A.
Two. One sliced and one whole. They make great snacks. The sliced ones are good not only on burgers nut roast beef and pepper jack sandwiches with a good spicy mustard. By the way Homer Vlasic Doesn't have to sell their pickles to WalMart.

Well, actually his father was Kenyan. But Obama spent his young life growing up in Indonesia from 1967 to 1971...his "impressionabe" years.

His father was definitely Muslim. And didn't Obama write in his book that his Indonesian step-father followed "a brand of Islam"?

And isn't Islam the dominant religion in Indonesia which also has the largest Muslim population than any other country in the world?

I believe he did and, yes, it is.

But I'm sure Obama was not influenced by his father's or his step-father's or his Indonesian Muslim roots.

Darrell Issa's IRS Investigation Is Falling Apart
When Republicans won control of the House of Representatives in 2010, Representative Darrell Issa of California was supposed to become a star. Issa, who made no secret of his ambition, took over the Oversight and Government Reform Committee, vowing to use the power of his chairmanship to stage hundreds of hearings and hold the Obama administration to account. Anticipating what he promised would be “constant battle,” the White House hired extra lawyers and braced for the onslaught.
But Issa wasn’t the force people expected him to be. His biggest investigation, into the botched anti-gun smuggling operation that left a Border Patrol agent dead, incited right-wing talk radio listeners. Beyond that, though, it barely registered. After two years in power, Issa seemed more bark than bite.
Then came last month’s revelation that IRS agents had singled out Tea Party groups for special scrutiny. Here was an issue that seized public attention and posed a legitimate threat to Obama. Since then, nobody in Congress has pushed harder than Issa to pin the scandal on the White House.
But after a burst of attention, Issa’s investigation appears to have stalled. Although he turned up embarrassing material—has any government official been humiliated quite like the IRS commissioner in the dorky video dressed up as Spock?—Issa hasn’t made the all-important connection to the White House. And he may not be able to. The news this week that he won’t release the full transcripts of his interviews with IRS officials—interviews he selectively quoted from to imply White House complicity—suggests that what they contain may in fact exonerate the administration of the very charge Issa is laboring so hard to prosecute.
He's looking more like an insignificant idiot wasting time and money on his politics.

Well, first of all, I was an elementary teacher who taught history as one part of the public school curriculum.
Second, every fact I post about history is backed up with a source, and I try to find the most credible source to satisfy most liberals. Not saying I always succeed.
And third, there's only one way to teach American History. I wasn't teaching political science to fifth graders.
However, it was the politics in the educational system combined with my desire to work from home in order to raise my child which led me to leave the teaching profession.
Every teacher I worked with - with few exceptions - wanted to get out too. I was just one of the lucky ones.
Even the most liberal teachers knew the public school system was a politcally correct nightmare. So you know it had to be pretty bad.
ROTFLMAO!!!!!! Son, you apparently also taught lying.

The Supreme Court announced Monday it has struck down an Arizona law that required voters to provide documentary proof of citizenship before registering to vote.

In Arizona v. Inter Tribal Council, seven justices agreed that the Arizona law oversteps the state's authority by essentially invalidating the federal voter registration form. The form, established by a 1993 law, lets people register to vote by sending in a uniform document accepted by all states. Voters must swear they are citizens on the form.

In a 2004 ballot initiative, Arizona voters decided they wanted to go beyond that federal requirement, by asking for proof of citizenship--such as a birth certificate, passport, or tribal ID card--at the point of voter registration.
