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

6 dead /41wounded in chicago weekend shootings.Hmmm , how's them restrictive gun control laws working out for you chicago ? How longs it gonna take for the liberal mind to understand that criminals don't obey laws? Logical thought would make one think that thug control rather than gun control is needed,but then again liberals don't think logically .
Will we ever hear obama say that if he had sons they would look like the shooters?
That's usually the number for just Friday night before midnight in Chicago.

Good question, son. Do you mean we should ask:

- Brian Terry
- Ambassador Stevens
- Sean Smith
- Glen Doherty
- Tyrone S. Woods
- the 575 that died in Afghanistan during Bush's presidency
- the 925 that died in Afghanistan during Obama's presidency
- the thousands that died in the Iraq War Democrats voted for during Bush's presidency
- the hundreds that died in Afghanistan during Obama's presidency
- the 50,000+ that died in Vietnam during Johnson's (D) War

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.
See? I have no idea where any of our other presidents lived during their "impressionable" years.

Home builder confidence at a 7 year high! That's terrific news as home building had been the missing link in the Obama recovery.

In other news, archeologists using lidar laser technology have confirmed the existence of ruins of a huge mountainside settlement in Cambodia's Angkor Wat region.

Didn't know that Angkor Wat held the largest preindustrial civilization in the world. The downfall of this massive civilization is thought to be deforestation leading to the inability to manage water.

It's just something about the timing of it all-chasing AP Domestic journalists as if they were "foreign terrorist suspects" while foreign nationalist RED FLAGGED Chechnyan bomb lobbing mujihadeens travel freely back and forth on US visas.
Kind of like big, black flags waving weeks prior in Benghazi...enough so that other nations saw them and acted accordingly for the safety of their people...but some how...ours missed that too.
Excuse, but frequent re-occurant policy failures kind of make some of us a tad bit...oh ...cynical, about the "competence" levels in some areas?
Not to fret yerself though Duh A Vey-just have another hand fed duhmmy dog biscuit.
That's the thing, isn't it? A lot of people are saying the same thing - that they were so buried into our personal business, they didn't see the real terrorists right under their noses.

But, oddly enough, actually they did and did nothing to stop them. So how is that supposed to reassure us that all of our personal data is helping them catch the bad guys?

Walmart provides jobs for unskilled people who would largely be unemployable elsewhere, plus low prices for people on limited budgets.

THIS IS FOR THE POLLSTERS CNN Poll: Majority Doesn't Trust Obama, Approval Rating Suffers Severe Drop President Barack Obama’s approval rating dropped a shocking 8 percentage points over the last month -- one of sharpest, fastest plunges in his presidency, according to a new CNN poll released early Monday morning.
For the first time in Obama's time in office, more than half of the public doesn’t feel that the president is honest and trustworthy, the CNN/ORC International poll showed.
Specifically, Obama's approval rating stands at 45 percent, down from 53 percent in mid-May, CNN reported. A shocking 54 percent of respondents told pollsters they disapprove of how Obama is handling his job. That was up 9 points in just a month.
Put the President's popular ratings drop back into context with the even steeper decline in popularity of Congress now at a historically low 7% approval rating. Then, you can think about why Americans don't like the direction that the government has been heading in its quest to go nowhere but to be re-elected to public office and leave real governing management to Big Business and their lobbyists.

About time they started building more homes. Realtors around here are complaining of the lack of inventory.

<quoted text> So why was Bush recorded as saying he thinks what is going on regarding the (my words) witch hunts/scandals is by the letter of the law? He also said the threats as in terrorist attacks still exist & without screening phone records & connecting the dots, the chances of another 9/11 increase drastically. Without PRISM, we have a bunch of Boston bombings in which you all blame the president for. Can't have it both ways.
So, why is it you're talking about Bush?
Ok. Let's go over this one more time.
Bush isn't president. Bush hasn't been president for more than 4 years. Obama is president. Obama has been president for over 4 years.
PRISM didn't exist when Bush was president.

What increases the chances of another massive Arab terrorist attack in the United States is the Arab terrorists are in the White House every goddam day.

The obvious enemy is Wahhabist muslim terrorists.
The obvious fact is (if you bother keeping up with anything that happens in our government) muslim institutions are exempted from this.
So, we have the fact that the muslims are bombing us, and the fact that the government prohibits spying on muslims.

So, just who is the enemy your PRISM is violating the Constitution for?

Who's the enemy?
You actually have to name someone or something to answer that question.

Global Systemic Economic Crisis: Devastating Financial Explosion and Social Outburst on a Worldwide Scale
The 2008 shock was certainly violent, but the reactions of the system, countries and central banks with their bailouts on an unprecedented scale, managed to hide the worst consequences: downgrading of the West in general and the United States in particular, a forced cleanup of the economy, a heavy fall from an artificial standard of living, mass unemployment, the beginning of social unrest… have been able to be partly neglected in favour of recovery hopes kept alive by irresponsible policies diverting liquidity to the banking systems and stock exchanges.

Sadly, whilst the world drugged itself, global issues weren’t addressed… five lost years: the building is even less strong than before the crisis; the US “solution” orchestrated by the Fed, that everyone else left it to manage to take the time to dress their own wounds, has been to put out with gasoline the fire which they themselves lit. It’s not surprising then that it is still the US, pillar of the world before, refusing to fall in line, with their faithful Japanese and British floats, which is once again igniting the world situation. And this time, we shouldn’t rely on bankrupt countries to save the situation: they are on their knees following the first shock in 2008.

Therefore, it’s actually a second world crisis which is looming, once again caused by the United States. Ultimately this five-year period will have been nothing other than taking a step back to enter into an even bigger crisis, which we have called “the crisis squared”.

Layout of the full article:

1. A situation which is now out of control
2. A second US crisis
3. The impacts of the second shock
4. Different players’ strategies
5. Failure of international institutions
6. Urgent recommendations
