Barack Obama, our next President

Full story: Hampton Roads Daily Press

"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 ...

No. Being an idiot though, contributes to decay.

Skepticism comes in two varieties; Healthy and Unhealthy.

For a government of the people, for the people and by the people to remain responsive *TO* the people, citizens need to keep a healthy skepticism in place at all times.

With the present administration in place especially, our keeping a healthy skepticism will save the Republic.

The entire mish-mash of whistle blower laws?
I'm saying the Obama administration is busy putting an end to whistle blowing and investigative journalism effectively ending government accountability.
Get it?
Whistle blowing is a good thing, but the whistle blower must be willing to accept the consequences, particularly if inaccurate.

Investigative journalism is essential.

The fact that Obama is trying to crush both raises serious questions as to why.

Soros-funded???
That's y'all's problem, if it sounds good enough to you that it SHOULD be the truth you run with it regardless of its authenticity.
In most circles its known as "lying".
It is documented

Open Society Foundation is Soros' group.

The 990 forms for Open Society Foundation
http://www.guidestar.org/organizations/13-702...

These filings show donations to
The Foundation for National Progress. This organization found Media Consortium which has also received money from Open Society Foundation. Media Consortium funnels funds to Foundation for National Progress to assist in funding projects.

Foundation for National Progress exists to publish and support "Mother Jones"

So yes Soros helps fund Mother Jones

"The problem with expanding this is that, you know, with the advent of PTSD, which I think is a new phenomenon as a product of the Iraq War, it’s not clear how the seller or transferrer of a firearm covered by this bill would verify that an individual was a member, or a veteran, and that there was no impairment of that individual with respect to having a weapon like this.
So, you know, I would be happy to sit down with you again and see if we could work something out but I think we have to– if you’re going to do this — find a way that veterans who are incapacitated for one reason or another mentally don’t have access to this kind of weapon."
Judge for yourself.
If you think this is Feinstein claiming all vets are mentally ill then you are dumber than your pal Eed.

Besides, Moocher Eed has a quote. That quote does not appear in your post.

I know it will be a shock but some vets returning from war actually have PTSD. Some not all

5 Reasons to Attend Army Whistleblower Bradley Manning’s Trial

Please note that this next week court is not in session on Monday (6/24), Tuesday will be a short day, and the trial will resume as normal Wednesday (6/26) at 9:30 am, with the weekly vigil taking place from 7-8 am that day. Livestream trial update today at 5 pm EST

#1: Show The Judge The Public Is Watching Her

At the beginning of each day of trial, the prosecuting attorney stands and reads to the court information about the levels of public attendance. During most days of the court martial, seats have remained free in the courtroom, and the overflow trailer which provides video feed of the proceedings has remained unused. We hope you’ll help us to change this.

Judge Lind knows that a high-profile case like this one will be part of her legacy. She’s not supposed to read any news about the trial, but there’s no more direct way to show her the importance that her decisions will have for the public than by members of the public taking it upon themselves to fill up her courtroom.

#2: Your Attendance Means A Lot To Bradley And His Lawyer

Bradley Manning is a 25 year old with a conscience who has already spent three years of his life behind bars, and faces potential life imprisonment, all for trying to serve the public good. Despite the gravity of his situation, he maintains optimism, and his attorney David Coombs has explained that his supporters have a lot to do with that...

The Wiki-leaks Snowden has united individuals of various political leanings together. Supporters and opponents come from each political group -conservative, Progressive and Libertarian.
Of course the Wiki-leak crowd has him as a hero. Sarah Harrison from Wiki-leak is his traveling companion. She is an adviser to Julian Assange who is holed up at an Ecuador embassy in the UK.
The focus should be on the government spying on US citizens, not on Snowden.

Guantanamo Bay To Stay Open As House Blocks Bill To Close Infamous Prison
WASHINGTON -- A worsening hunger strike and a fresh plea by President Barack Obama to close the Guantanamo Bay prison fell on deaf ears in Congress Friday, as the House of Representatives voted to keep the increasingly infamous jail open.
The House voted to make it harder for Obama to begin shifting inmates, adding a restriction to the National Defense Authorization Act of 2014 that bars any of the roughly 56 prisoners who have been cleared by military and intelligence officials to be sent to Yemen from being transferred there for one year. Some 30 other Gitmo inmates of the 166 kept there have also been cleared for release.
http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/06/14/guan...
"silly"
I would bet that "nutsucker" is giving you a big thank you. But the fact remains president nobama stated that he would close Gitmo. He lied. He did not believe that the congress could in a way control his activities.
How would you like it if a special prison was built just down the street from where you live to house those murdering pieces of crap. Let them rot there and only you others of your bent will shed a tear. Ot would make your day, month, year if nobama could free them so they could go do what they do, bomb, murder and maim.

Nevertheless, somehow the Boston bombers, the underwear bomber, Maj. Nidal, and the Time's Square bomber all stayed off their radar?
Major Nadal wasn't under anybody's radar, at least anybody who came in contact with him in the Army. Alarms were sounded, but ignored for political correctness.

And if NSA snooping couldn't catch the Boston bombers, who can they catch?

True, but after "where is Waldo" news of today the whole Snowden issue is no more.

He will be holed up and focus will return to the NSA over reach.

You are crying wolf.
FACT: The U.S. economy was far better off when the maximum tax on dividends was nearly 40 percent and people actually saved for their retirement rather than gambled on the stock market.
Investing (not gambling) in the stock market is the only feasible way to build a sufficient retirement account. All pensions funds invest in equities. The old savings account at the town bank just doesn't cut it.

Are you really that stupid, or just a government employee.

OK, that was redundant.
