President Obama will spend part of Monday paying tribute to one of his Republican predecessors.
The president and first lady Michelle Obama welcome ex-president George H.W. Bush and former first lady Barbara Bush to a White House ceremony to recognize the Points of Light volunteer program.
"Points of Light — the world's largest organization dedicated to volunteer service — mobilizes millions of people to take action that is changing the world and recognizes individuals who are making a difference through service and volunteerism," the White House schedule says.
The first President Bush established the program in 1989.
While honoring Bush, President Obama plans to announce the creation of a federal task force "to identify additional ways that the public and private sectors can partner together to support national service as a strategy for tackling national priorities."
Monday's ceremony at the White House includes recipients of the 5,000th Daily Point of Light Award: Floyd Hammer and Kathy Hamilton, a retired couple of farm owners from Union, Iowa, whose non-profit organization delivers free meals to children suffering from hunger in more than 15 countries, including the USA.
The Obamas will have lunch with the Bushes and members of their family.
Bush's visit comes two weeks after Obama met with former president George W. Bush during a trip to Africa.
Old news.

How about a link to your aged data?
Sounds like Vietnam veterans were 36-39% of the veterans in prison, not 36-39% of the total prison population. Not surprising considering the huge number of draftees forced into slavery in LBJ's war.
Bet most of it was for minor drug type offenses. They threw the book at everybody for drugs back then.

When is a scandal not a scandal? Here's a good rule: Whenever Fox News and Rep. Darrell Issa say it IS a scandal, you can be pretty sure it's NOT one. Take the so-called IRS scandal.
For weeks, starting in May, Fox fanned the flames. Based on what we now know to be a flawed audit by Inspector General J. Russell George, Fox reported that the IRS had deliberately targeted right-wing groups seeking tax-exempt status.
According to breathless Fox News anchors, the IRS first singled out conservative organizations by drawing up a "Be on the Lookout," or BOLO, list using keywords like "patriot" and "Tea Party."
Then they picked on those same organizations by asking them for tons of irrelevant information and dragging their applications out for months. And, if you can believe Fox News, all of this was carried out by the IRS on direct orders from the Obama White House.
Meanwhile, Issa, chairman of the House Oversight Committee, has held four congressional hearings so far, accusing the IRS of conducting a Tea Party witch hunt. In typical Issa fashion, he ratcheted the rhetoric up even higher, tying the IRS to the White House and comparing President Obama to Richard Nixon. Issa said on "CBS This Morning": "This was targeting of the president's political enemies, effectively, and lies about it during the election year so that it wasn't discovered until afterwards.... This process was deliberate, and it was repeated."
Shamefully, most of the mainstream media merely echoed charges made by Fox and Issa, leaving the American people with the impression of a giant Washington scandal where Democrats were using government bureaucrats to crucify Republicans. But now the truth comes out: It was all one big fat lie.
Independent investigations by both Yahoo News and Politico reveal that the IRS, in fact,
investigated both conservative and liberal groups
applying for tax-exempt status. And, indeed, it's important that the IRS do so. The law clearly states that only organizations devoted to "social welfare" can receive a coveted tax exemption because we taxpayers should not be subsidizing any purely political groups on the right or left. IRS officials were merely trying to enforce the law, perhaps clumsily, when faced with a flood of new political organizations filing for tax-exempt status after the Supreme Court's Citizens United decision in January 2010.
Carol watched a show on TV last night that explains why she'll continue to rant about "phony" scandals.

The outcome of the case would have been quite different had the appellee resided in the United States.

In their decision in Fleming v. Nestor, the Supreme Court further stated:
WE MUST CONCLUDE THAT A PERSON COVERED BY THE ACT HAS NOT SUCH A
RIGHT IN BENEFIT PAYMENTS AS WOULD MAKE EVERY DEFEASANCE OF "ACCRUED" INTERESTS VIOLATIVE OF THE DUE PROCESS CLAUSE OF THE FIFTH AMENDMENT.
II.
THIS IS NOT TO SAY, HOWEVER, THAT CONGRESS MAY EXERCISE ITS POWER TO
MODIFY THE STATUTORY SCHEME FREE OF ALL CONSTITUTIONAL RESTRAINT. THE INTEREST OF A COVERED EMPLOYEE UNDER THE ACT IS OF SUFFICIENT SUBSTANCE TO FALL WITHIN THE PROTECTION FROM ARBITRARY GOVERNMENTAL ACTION AFFORDED BY THE DUE PROCESS CLAUSE....
"WHETHER WISDOM OR UNWISDOM RESIDES IN THE SCHEME OF BENEFITS SET FORTH IN TITLE II, IT IS NOT FOR US TO SAY. THE ANSWER TO SUCH INQUIRIES MUST COME FROM CONGRESS, NOT THE COURTS. OUR CONCERN HERE, AS OFTEN, IS WITH POWER, NOT WITH WISDOM...PARTICULARLY WHEN WE DEAL WITH A WITHHOLDING OF A NONCONTRACTUAL BENEFIT UNDER A SOCIAL WELFARE PROGRAM SUCH AS THIS, WE MUST RECOGNIZE THAT THE DUE PROCESS CLAUSE CAN BE THOUGHT TO INTERPOSE A BAR ONLY IF THE STATUTE MANIFESTS A PATENTLY ARBITRARY CLASSIFICATION, UTTERLY LACKING IN RATIONAL JUSTIFICATION.
SUCH IS NOT THE CASE HERE. THE FACT OF A BENEFICIARY'S RESIDENCE
ABROAD - IN THE CASE OF A DEPORTEE, A PRESUMABLY PERMANENT RESIDENCE
CAN BE OF OBVIOUS RELEVANCE TO THE QUESTION OF ELIGIBILITY."
"NOR, APART FROM THIS, CAN IT BE DEEMED IRRATIONAL FOR CONGRESS TO HAVE CONCLUDED THAT THE PUBLIC PURSE SHOULD NOT BE UTILIZED TO CONTRIBUTE TO THE SUPPORT OF THOSE DEPORTED ON THE GROUNDS SPECIFIED IN THE STATUTE. WE NEED GO NO FURTHER TO FIND SUPPORT FOR OUR CONCLUSION THAT THIS PROVISION OF THE ACT CANNOT BE CONDEMNED AS SO LACKING IN RATIONAL JUSTIFICATION AS TO OFFEND DUE PROCESS."

Nestor did reside in the United States and immigrated here legally like alot of them at the time did besides worked here for 19 years in the United States and was a victim of Pseudo Liberalism & the Warren Court that Held a Pseudo Liberal Majority in 1960 on the SCOTUS.

Warren Court(1953 - 1969, Pseudo Liberal Majority)

The Warren Court refers to the Supreme Court of the United States between 1953 and 1969, when Earl Warren served as Chief Justice. Warren led a liberal majority that used judicial power in dramatic fashion, to the consternation of conservative opponents. The Warren Court expanded civil rights, civil liberties, judicial power, and the federal power in dramatic ways.

You're misunderstanding those numbers which compare Vietnam era vets against the vets of other war eras and not against the general population.

It's basically an exercise in fun with numbers as the pre Vietnam legal system was much kinder and gentler and drugs weren't yet perceived as a problem. A lot of the stuff folks used to do for fun back in the "good old days" is a felony "now a days."

About 2.6 million Americans actually served in Vietnam, there were many many more that served during the so called Vietnam era.

Based on Obama's track record, I don't think anyone who is not a far left loon like you is going to value your opinion, sockpuppet.

When will you idiots quit using the deaths of these American in Benghazi as a way to lie about our President.
You didn't give a flying f*k that Bush killed over 4000 soldiers n a war based on his lies. You have no place to talk about Benghazi.
