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

ABC News: Girl gang violence at Philadelphia school.

http://abcnews.go.com/US/video/girl-gang-viol...

And there's plenty more where that came from.

In a series of annual publications produced jointly by the National Center for Education Statistics, Institute of Education Sciences in the U.S. Department of Education, and the Bureau of Justice Statistics in the U.S. Department of Justice, data show that there were 33 school-associated violent deaths from July 1, 2009, through June 30, 2010. In 2010, among students ages 12-18, there were about 828,000 nonfatal victimizations at school which include 470,000 victims of theft and 359,000 victims of violence (simple assault and serious violence). In 2009-10, about 74 percent of public schools recorded one or more violent incidents of crime, 16 percent recorded one or more serious violent incidents, and 44 percent recorded one or more thefts.

It's gotten worse since 2009-2010.

The median wealth of white households is 20 times that of black households. Researchers found that the exact same resume for the exact same job application will get twice as many call-backs for interviews if the name on the resume is “Greg” instead of “Jamal”. School districts spend more on predominantly white schools than predominantly black schools. The fact that black workers earn, on average, 35% less than white workers in the same jobs isn’t erased by the election of an African American president, one who, by the way, openly praises the role of affirmative action in his life and accomplishments.
As for Abigail Fisher, there is ample evidence that she just wasn’t qualified to get into the University of Texas. After all, her grades weren’t that great and the year she applied for UT, admissions there were actually more competitive than Harvard. In its court filings, the University has pointed out that even if Fisher received a point for race, she still wouldn’t have met the threshold for admissions. Yes, it is true that the same year, UT made exceptions and admitted some students with lower grades and test scores than Fisher. Five of those students were black or Latino. Forty-two were white.
AND THEY COME ON TOPIX PRETENDING LIKE THEY ARE EDUMACATED THEY DONT EVEN QUALIFY FOR Affirmative Action

I understad it's tough being a dumbass Tea Party member but Egypt has not declared war on theUnited States.
The black flag was also adopted by some groups fighting for Libyan rebels not associated with Al Qaeda.
You're an idiot.
President Mohammed Morsi gathered a group of politicians last week who thought they were speaking privately at a parliamentary meeting. They didn't realize they were speaking in the proximity of a hot mike. Magdi Ahmad Hussein, chairman of the Islamic Labor Party, suggested that all present vow not to leak any information to the media, then said this:
"I’m very fond of battles. With the enemies, of course – with America and Israel...."
The president of Egypt is in the room and part of the conversation, you idiot.

You reached way up your ass for this:
"The black flag was also adopted by some groups fighting for Libyan rebels not associated with Al Qaeda."
Bullshit. That black flag is the standard for the Wahhabist war against anything opposed to Wahhabism.
Al Qaeda is merely just one terrorist organization that is part of the Wahhabist network of terrorist organizations... now pay attention here... coordinated by the Muslim Brotherhood.
The Muslim Brotherhood is at war with the United States.
The Muslim Brotherhood has a permenant presence in the White House.
The Muslim Brotherhood controls the government of Egypt.
The Muslim Brotherhood openly discusses their war with the United States when they think they aren't being heard.

So, please tell us why you joined the terrorists in their war against the United States, and are doing the same thing here Obama did when he lied for two weeks trying to cover up the Al Qaeda attack on the United States.
Why are you a terrorist?

Let me see-

IRS IG report states that the IRS were targeting groups for having 'Tea Party' or 'Patriot' in their names.

All news media reports the IRS was targeting conservative groups.

Teachers and students just cuss each other out nowadays.

There once was a time when unruly students were sent to the office, taken care off in an expedient manner, and came back to the classroom a bit more humbled and ready to learn. Parents once used to support teachers and educators who cared enough to teach their child what was and was not acceptable behaviors so they would be socially functional in the real world.

But you prefer students and teachers cussing out each other, I know.

You're dismissing the point. Let's go over this again, for the very, very stupid people in the class. You may need to write this down.

BUSH ISN'T THE PRESIDENT TODAY. BUSH HASN'T BEEN THE PRESIDENT FOR MORE THAN FOUR GODDAM YEARS. OBAMA IS THE PRESIDENT TODAY. OBAMA HAS BEEN PRESIDENT FOR MORE THAN FOUR GODDAM YEARS.

So, why is it you're talking about Bush?
RISM didn't exist when Bush was president. And, the Patriot Act which all you Democrats pretended to hate until you could use it, would not allow the unconstitutional spying this excuse for an administration is doing.

So, since it's very obvious this administration is preparing for a large-scale war with the American population, and ignoring the muslim terrorists here while importing nobody knows how many more from Saudi Arabia, and excluding muslims (thus muslimi terrorists) from being spied upon, and is spying wholesale on the non-muslim population....
Tell us who will be the enemy in the war Obama and the administration is preparing for in the United States.

Wrong you vomitous cretin! Wal-Mart keeps their prices low because they buy their goods from countries that pay slave wages and subject their workers to unsafe working conditions and pay their own workers such crap wages that most of them are eligible for food stamps.
Costco also sells goods for low prices and their workers are unionized. This country's economy was at its best when union was more of the norm than the exception before Ronald Reagan cut the legs out from under them and the middle class.

The theory is that suspending a student for insubordination/bad behavior is a reward for bad behavior.
The theory used to be behavioral problems became the parents' problem if they didn't want their child to have a warm fanny.

If parents had to leave work and take care of their own undisciplined children or figure out what to do with their child after they were suspended for a few days, there'd be a heckuva decrease in disciplinary problems in the public schools.

I guarantee it.

Sending kids to "detention" to get out of the classroom IS a reward.

West Virginia teen now facing year in jail over NRA T-shirt

A West Virginia eighth-grader who was suspended from school for refusing to change his National Rifle Association T-shirt faces up to one year in jail and a $500 fine after being formally charged with obstructing an officer.

Jared Marcum, 14, appeared before a judge Monday and was hit with formal charges that carry a maximum $500 fine and up to a year in jail. The Logan County Police Department initially claimed that Marcum was arrested April 18 for disturbing the education process and obstructing an officer. His father said that officers even went as far as threatening to charge Jared with making terror threats.

"In my view of the facts, Jared didn't do anything wrong," Ben White, Jared's attorney told WTRF. "I think officer Adkins could have done something differently."

Arresting officer James Adkins claimed that Marcum’s refusal to talk obstructed his ability to do his job, while White argued that Adkins never made reference to any violent acts or threats in his petition.

Why, how, & when did the switch in party lines happen DB? Answer those questions, then you'll realize you're actually talking about the republicans in disgust!
As for the double standard you hold & expect me to also have for the president. It's just that, a double standard! You're still harping about 4 Americans killed in hostile territory &, reapply had no business being there. Anyway, you zip your lips when it comes to the 13 embassies attacked & dozens of people killed under the blind eyes of GWB! Why the double stranded DB?
With me?
I hate the Democratic Party because it built itself on lies and treason, sabotaged the United States during the Cold War, invented a system of lies to dupe the entire country with, helped the communists in their attempt to end our existence, spit on Vietnam veterans, invented a system of lies to slander them with,... I could go on for a long time here.
Why do I hate Democrats? I don't hate all Democrats. I only hate the Democrats that are knowingly trying to take over the country and end the existence of the constitutional republic. I don't hate the Democrat dupes that are ignorant of who they are following and what they are doing.
But, that's history. Let's talk about today.
I hate the Democrats for collapsing our economy for political purposes.
I hate the Democrats for sabotaging the United States in the war the Arabs started on 9/11.
I hate the Democrats for planning a large-scale war against the American people.
I hate the Democrats for putting terrorists in the White House.
I hate the Democrats for importing who knows how many terrorists from Saudi Arabia.
I hate the Democrats for being pathological liars.

... I could go on for a long time here....

You know, the Muslim Brotherhood is at war with the United States. The Muslim Brotherhood has a full-time presence in the White House.
What are the odds that there are treasonous offenses being committed now in the White House that are hanging offenses? Do you think that's possible?

If there are treasonous offenses punishable by hanging being committed in the White House, what are the chances that those people ever plan to leave the White House?
I'll tell you. None.

But Carol, didn't you just blame the administrators for problems in the schools? Last time I looked they weren't union. In the system that my wife works at the city government is Republican and they've allowed the school superintendent to rack up expenses by hiring more administrators and cutting back on teachers.

Walmart keeps prices low by buying in bulk and negotiating aggressively. Their Bounty towels and Pampers diapers come from the same mill in Pennsylvania as the Bounty towels and Pampers diapers in any other store.

The majority of Costco stores are NOT unionized.
