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

You gotta love their misery and daily whine then throw in their racism, bigotry, anger,cluelessness and you have the makings of most of the righties on here...They need their own wailing wall...I know how about giving them Texas? No one would miss that decrepit wasteland.

The Magic Negro was meeting with the Muslim Brotherhood even before Morsi was in power. He had no complaints or hesitancy about giving the Muslim Brotherhood American F-15's, High-Tech Tanks and other munitions technology.
Now, suddenly, this jerk is talking about revisiting America's policy of selling these weapons to 'Egypt'.
What happened?
His bro's got booted. That's what's up.
Ww you are dumb.

If Obama give the weapons to the Muslim Brotherhood, why didn't the Muslim Brotherhood use them to keep Morsi in power?

Idiot.

The Egyptian military is not the Muslim Brotherhood as proven recently.

Let me see if I can explain it to you.
There was this airplane crash at SFO.
At least two people died.
Sixty have been injured.
You figure it out.
This is great news, an airliner crashed and only two people were killed.

Evidently teabagger favorite Marco Rubio hasn't been Taxed Enough Already:

"Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) is considering being the primary sponsor of a 20-week abortion ban proposal in the Senate. Rubio is often mentioned as a strong presidential candidate in 2016, so his backing would assure the topic remains in the center of national policy discussions.

<quoted text>You're a liar. I believe that you don't even live in Missouri. "WASHINGTON -- Senate Republicans objected to an attempt Thursday to repeal a controversial provision, informally dubbed the "Monsanto Protection Act," that could allow seeds deemed unsafe to be planted regardless of judicial order.
The provision was quietly slipped into law earlier this year and generated a firestorm once its substance became known. During debate on the farm bill Thursday, Sen. Jeff Merkley (D-Ore.) offered an amendment that would have repealed the measure, but it was blocked by Senate Republicans, led by Roy Blunt (R-Mo.).
Earlier on Thursday, in an interview with The Huffington Post, Blunt said that the point of the provision was to protect farmers who had already purchased seeds that were later deemed unsafe."
http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/05/23/mons...
Monsanto Protection Act backlash prompted some food activists to place the blame for the GMO legislation at Senator Barbara Mikulski’s feet. Some of those opposed to allowing GMO ingredients in food products without labeling blame the Democrat for allowing the biotech rider to find its way into the new law.

The GMO seeds portion of the act was reportedly added to the bill last month. Senator Barbara Mikulski is the chair of the Senate Appropriations Committee. President Barack Obama signed the GMO biotech rider section of HR 933 into law. During a 2007 speech in Iowa, Obama stated that Americans have the right to know what goes into their food, a comment which some are now citing as a broken campaign promise.

YOUR liberal President signed--didn't he read it either? LOL-can he even read?

P.S. you don't have to live in a state to call their representatives--I call any representative-most of them however are democrats. You know it is better to call them, than to email them--most of the time the democrats hit delete on the emails. But they have to account for all calls.

Wasn't it the Koch brothers who started the tea party? Libertarians
The Koch brothers are single minded, they will support any cause or candidate that will lower their tax bill. If a Fascist Party became viable and promised to eliminate corporate taxes the Koch's would be on board. Their association with libertarianism is based solely on their tax position, they couldn't care less about any of the other foundational libertarian issues.

I couldn't have been more saddened and angered when that teenager was killed. I blamed Zimmerman for leaving his house with a gun in the first place.
Unfortunately, whether Zimmerman should have waited for the police outside of his car or not or left his house with a gun or not, that young man ultimately lost his life by deciding to act as the aggressor attacking Zimmerman.
I wish more than anything that young man were still alive today and Zimmerman had not left his house. But it's now up to a jury to decide Zimmerman's guilt or innocence - not us.
Ha! You're so funny.

Let's let the jury decide that Martin attacked Zimmerman proving once and for all that black folks are always the guilty party.

United States President Barack Obama has signed a bill into law that was written in part by the very billion-dollar corporation that will benefit directly from the legislation.

On Tuesday, Pres. Obama inked his name to H.R. 933, a continuing resolution spending bill approved in Congress days earlier. Buried 78 pages within the bill exists a provision that grossly protects biotech corporations such as the Missouri-based Monsanto Company from litigation.

With the president’s signature, agriculture giants that deal with genetically modified organisms (GMOs) and genetically engineered (GE) seeds are given the go-ahead to continue to plant and sell man-made crops, even as questions remain largely unanswered about the health risks these types of products pose to consumers.

....If the president’s signature isn’t all that surprising, though, consider the genesis of the bill itself. According to an article published Monday in the New York Daily News, US Sen. Roy Blunt (R-Missouri)“worked with Monsanto to craft the language in the bill.”

WRONG STUPID!

Meanwhile our infrastructure is rapidly deteriorating with roads in disrepair, bridges that are structurally unsound and water systems that leak more water than they carry and let pathogens into our drinking water. They don't have any allegiance to this country but to corporate plutocrats who want to control and privatize everything so that they can line their pockets.

"The Tea Party movement spontaneously formed in 2009 from the reaction of the American people to fiscally irresponsible actions of the federal government, misguided “stimulus” spending, bailouts and takeovers of private industry. Within the first few weeks of the movement, Tea Party Patriots formed to support the millions of Americans seeking to improve our great nation through renewed support for fiscal responsibility, constitutionally limited government, and free market economic policies."

The "questions" are the left's employment of a tactic used by the right, most notably by Glenn "I'm just asking the question" Beck.

The answers are out there. The risks being questioned are the same risks associated with any genetic alteration. Beefsteak tomato anyone?

"To date world-wide there have been no verifiable untoward toxic or nutritionally deleterious effects resulting from the cultivation and consumption of products from GM crops."
