Barack Obama, our next President

The sad fact is this White House has never cared much about our national security or protecting us from our deadliest enemies. Yet it goes on the warpath against any reporter who might publish leaks that might make it look bad — just ask James Rosen of Fox News. Indeed, it has prosecuted more federal whistleblowers than all previous administrations combined.
The pattern is appallingly clear: Under Obama, real whistleblowers get nailed to the wall, while those who threaten our national security get a pass, starting with Julian Assange. He’s the one who engineered the WikiLeaks scandal, releasing loads of classified and highly sensitive data about our nation’s diplomacy and our war on terror — much of it actionable intelligence for our nation’s foes, including al Qaeda. Under an Eisenhower or a Reagan, Assange would have been the late WikiLeaker.
Instead, he was allowed to wander the globe virtually scot free and is now happily ensconced in London at the Embassy of Ecuador, where we have an extradition treaty but where a Marxist government has given Assange safe haven — and where he is reportedly helping Snowden get the same deal.
Meanwhile, the trial of the Army tech who helped Assange drags on with no end in sight.
The leaking of classified data with impunity doesn’t stop there. It goes straight to the White House itself. Who can forget how the Obama national-security team leaked news that it had helped Israel launch a computer virus into Iran’s nuclear program, a story that got three Iranian technicians arrested as American spies? Or how they gave Hollywood film-makers direct access to the planner of the Osama bin Laden kill, whose identity was otherwise highly secret?
In 2011 came revelations (ironically from WikiLeaks) that in order to get the Russians to sign the new START treaty, the Obama administration passed on secret information about the British nuclear arsenal, right down to the serial numbers of the warheads. It also wants to give them vital classified data on our missile-defense system — and, indeed, may already have done so.
The ostensible goal was to reassure Vladimir Putin that the system we were installing in Poland was designed to defend against rogue missiles from Iran or North Korea, not from Russia’s nuclear arsenal. But the underlying assumption was that the world is afraid of us — and passing on our most vital national secrets can help to dispel that fear.
So if Snowden didn’t feel any compunction about leaking classified data to real or potential foes, he was only taking his cues from President Obama.
Now Sen. Charles Schumer says that if Russia gives Snowden safe haven, it “will have serious consequences.” Really? Will Putin believe that when he himself has been handed nuclear secrets by our own commander in chief?
The result of sucking up to Putin hasn’t been better relations but worse, as the Snowden case reveals. And the alternative to keeping our national-security secrets under lock and key isn’t more “transparency” but more power to the thugocrats — and a far more dangerous world.
No so sad as the republicans are going nowhere.
Sen Rand Paul seems on board look for Snowden, impressive speach

Angry workers hold Florida executive captive over unpaid salary
The owner of a Florida-based medical supply company has been trapped inside his company’s factory in China by a group of about 80 angry workers, though they deny mistreating him physically.
“We women can’t hold the boss hostage,” one employee, Gao Ping, told CBS News.“We’re negotiating. He didn’t pay us wages.”
But their employer, 42-year-old Chip Starnes, said employees have deprived him of sleep since first taking him captive on June 21 and blocked him from leaving the Specialty Medical Supplies facility in Beijing. He also denied owing his captors two months’ worth of salary and severance packages after laying about 30 employees off.
They’re kind of holding me in a cage like an animal,” Starnes shouted from behind a window to a reporter.

There will always be two parties as long as the US remains a democracy. The way it should be.
One more Party than in Hitler's Germany or Stalin's Russia makes us sooooo much better?

How about the results? These two parties done pretty good? Especially over the last century?

If you're so happy with the results why do you hate one component so much? One that you contend is essential and will always be essential for the system?

It's too bad these consequences you speak of inevitably befalls the child. Freedom ends on the clinic's floor for a million babies a year in America, and all you can say is c'est la vie. That's cold.
No, I fully support your opposition to abortion. I urge you to counsel your friends and relatives against the practice. Get your church involved, excommunicate members who've had or has an abortion. I'm all for that just quit trying to get the government to do your dirty work for you.

Of course you missed the point-it was about freedom to treat your health with out the government denoting how you do it. I want to live in a country where I have a choice to choose whatever means I, myself, deem necessary to treat something. That isn't the case with O'bamacare. So you with your 'choice mantra' you should be against O'bamacare. But you are not.
