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

Ah here we go into the summer of 2013. Liberals are rolling out the barrels for fun and singing on sunshine. Resting in shaded pools of the cool, cool changes evolving. A higher evolution to our politics’ maturity is budding forth once again. In the past decade “We The People” have examined ourselves and found us wanting to step out of the gloom and doom scenarios of the traditionalist conservative views of the past.
Shackles of prejudice are falling to the ground. Mary Jane is now identified with beneficial outcomes. Illegal immigrants are observing a light at the end of the tunnel. Gays are growing in their freedoms to be gay. America is awakening to be once again the land of the diverse melting pot it once was. Rejuvenating strengths that was always their fundamental strengths‘.
Demographics of the ideologies of Jim Crow, John Birch or the hyped up McCarthy are fading into the archaic dust bins of our history. Another dark chapter of our growing pains.“We The People” have reached a majority that choose to distance themselves from the gloom and doom policies that promote these dysfunctional callow ideologies.
51% are now in favor of gays to be gay. 72% agree that this is inevitable. Mary Jane up 11 points from 2010. Previously only less than 1/3 comprehended its beneficial factors. This according to Pew Polls. CBS/N.Y. Times poll have discovered 83% favor a path to citizenship for the illegal immigrants. 20% higher than the 2007 Pew Polls. Which was the last time this issue was addressed.
Business scholar Fariborz Ghadar, from the Center Of Strategic and International Affaires explains what is occurring. Quote “ Whether it’s war on terror or the recession or this or that; Society then reacts to those periods and change results” he goes on to say “The younger generation is getting more accepting, the pace of change is much faster, data is available to us more quickly. We’re more plugged in to the world around us and its combining to allow people to develop their own opinions and be open to others”.
1980’s generation grew up with 911 and the gloom and doom of the past of the bushwhacking days. They are now 18 to 32. Here in lies the moving force for the abrupt change in right wing polarization to left wing polarization.
Similar to the 60’s after the Nam episodes. Social rights sprouted, as it is now with the 80’s generation.
Today we have instant communication and knowledge at our finger tips. Fraudulent propaganda schemes of our past prejudices become exposed. Observe the effect on programs such as “Weeds, Modern Family and Ugly Betty” to name a few. They stimulate diversity and liberalization. Advancing the goals of the broad open minded liberal, as opposed to the narrow close minded conservative. There will continue to be gloomy times. They however are advocating their own demise with each experienced generation that follows. Growing in intellect and controlling, the gloom and doom scenarios. Science will soon render these gloomy days for agricultural benefits. Removing them from authority based organizations. Obama once said “ Each successive generation creates a new space for peace and tolerance and justice and fairness” Right to the point.

WASHINGTON, June 28 (Reuters)- The father of former U.S. spy agency contractor Edward Snowden said in an interview he is reasonably confident his son will return to the United States as long as certain conditions are met.
Those conditions could include not detaining Snowden before trial, NBC News said on Friday. The NBC report added that he plans to make that point in a letter to U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder to be sent through his lawyer later on Friday.
Snowden's father, in part of the NBC interview that aired on the "Today Show," also said he is concerned his son was being manipulated by others, including people from WikiLeaks.

Why don't we follow the current pattern of slipping fifty years BACKWARDS and return the the quota systems. Only this time, include southern northern continental border countries.

The Dutch police are to have an Unmanned Aerial Services (UAS) unit, Justice Minister Ivo Opstelten has said in a letter to parliament. According to the centre-left D66 opposition party, the Netherlands will be the first country with such a unit, and the privacy of citizens is at risk.

Last year, the police operated 81 flights over the Netherlands with drones, unmanned mini-planes equipped with day and night cameras. The present flights are only the start of the use of drones in the Netherlands, says Opstelten.“In the future, an increase in the number of flights with unmanned planes is expected."

A formal UAS unit is currently being set up. In preparation for this, some members of the police force are being trained and examined on the Basic Training Rotary Craft UAS pilot service course at the National Aerospace Laboratory (NLR) in Amsterdam, Opstelten writes.

D66 wants a separate act to regulate the deployment of drones in the Netherlands. MP Gerard Schouw said Friday on Radio 1 that the privacy of the citizen is at risk. The special police unit being set up specifically to steer the unmanned planes in the air is “a world first,” according to Schouw.

Opstelten says the law does not need to be amended for this, because existing regulations, for example in the area of privacy, would be sufficient. But according to Schouw, there are no rules in the Netherlands for the use of the pictures taken by the drones.

The D66 MP points out that the word drone does not appear anywhere in Dutch legislation. In the US, there are already states and cities with separate laws for the use of drones. Schouw wants to follow this example.

Activists from different groups marched to the US embassy in Pretoria on Friday protesting against President Barack Obama.

The large group marched along Francis Baard Street, singing and chanting anti-Obama slogans. One activist, on a truck mounted with a public address system, led the songs and slogans.

He shouted: "Free Palestine. Free Swaziland. Free Zimbabwe. Down Obama, down!"

The group initially gathered at the Caledonian Stadium before embarking on the march.

Some of the protesters' placards read: "Obama, stop supporting dictators in Africa. No oil here, move on.

"100 years of genocide in Iraq. War in 100 countries. Rogue State."

A young boy's poster read: "No you can't spy on me".

Many protesters wore orange overalls and black hoods. Others were dressed in Young Communist League red regalia.

The league's national secretary was with other officials in front of the protesters.

A large banner with Obama's face had the words: "Meet the world's top assassin". The banner also had a picture of Obama behind prison bars.

Why do you want an immigration bill?
The immigration problem isn't going away. There are just too many here with deep roots. The pathway to citizenship covers more than a 10 year timespan and the solution to securing the border is, I think, a good one.

Whether it's the most fair solution - allowing illegal immigrants to get preference over those who are still waiting their turn just to come here - is the objection most have as well as illegal immigrants taking the low-skilled jobs away from American citizens.

But, to me, it's better immigrants earn their citizenship and start contributing than remain under the radar.

Most Republicans do want some kind of bill. Others know it's political suicide to fight any attempt to solve the problem.

If border security every 1000 feet is enforced by this administration, it will probably appease most Americans who would otherwise be opposed to the pathway to citizenship solution.

It's a big problem and no one really knows how to solve it. Especially me.

Your thoughts?

Physicians are already turning down Medicare patients by the droves. Too much costly and time-consuming bureaucratic paperwork.

Triple the amount of costly and time-consuming paperwork under Obamacare.

How could you have possibly read that into my post?

In fact, all Galt suggested was that women were being treated as second-class citizens because abortion clinics are not held to the same standards as other outpatient surgical facilities.

There is no such right, but that's another story.
