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

The government should respect the will of the people. The people know what's best for the people.
If anyone tried to dictate the will of the people, it was southern democrats who tried to dictate racism. Not the other way around.

<quoted text>Reagan was a B actor in Hollywood, a failed governor of California, and it took him 12 years in the political wilderness of republican campaign politics to finally ring from Trent Lott endorsement to be the 1980 GOP Presidential nominee in exchange for Reagan support for states rights efforts in the Deep South to overturn the Civil Rights , Voting and Open Housing Rights of the Kennedy-Johnson Administrations.
I'm an actor too, kinda, sorta. And I get so upset when those nasty rightwingers say Reagan brought prosperity and pride to America while Obama is known as the food stamp president who blames and vacations while more Americans slip into poverty.

Its all true, but I don't like when they say it and thank God the media doesn't report it.

Here's another thought: After the Romans beat the livin' shit outta Jesus, then forced marched him up the street while the locals threw shit all over him, then nailed him up on a scaffold and made him drink vinegar, maybe broke his legs, etc., why, after all that, did they give him a nice clean white loincloth to wear like in all the pictures? I'll bet you that that l'il Jewish fella hung up there with his dick hangin' out - Jewish guys bein' what they are it probably wasn't THAT embarassing - with shit runnin' down his legs like he was visitin' Hershey Pennsylvania on the express bus. Whaddya think? One thing's for sure, if there was a loincloth, nobody saved it afterwards.

"Once again, the majority of blacks and Hispanics are anti-abortion and anti-gay marriage."

And yet they still vote for Democrats over Republicans by sizable margins.

Wow.

What does that say about the Republican Party??

And Carol, you have been told a gazillion times that racism in the South was done by Whites, not just Democrats. When will you idiots ever get that. Nearly all in Congress from the South voted against the Civil Rights Act & Nearly all from outside the South voted for it. When you try to paste racism to just Democrats, you are either a liar or dumber than sh*t.

Like I told him, do some reading on liberating Europe and rebuilding Japan and Germany. And providing help to those in need around the world.
And then contrast that to books about Lenin and Mao.

Marine Corps Col. George Bristol was in a key position in the U.S. Africa Command leadership.
But I'll cede your point and call him a "key player" or "key witness" in testifying to what actually happened.
The Pentagon told CBS News on July 5 that Bristol, the commander of the Joint Special Forces Task Force-Trans Sahara, could not testify because he was retired.
But the Marine Corps Times first reported two weeks ago that Bristol had not yet retired and was actually on active duty, preparing for retirement through the end of the month.
So hope that clears up any confusion on your part.

The problem, of course, is the UK and other countries in Europe are beginning to realize Muslims are becoming more dominant by remaining separate from the mainstream while growing in numbers and demanding Sharia Law be implemented into their own governments' laws.
It's just going to be a little harder to do that here. But we probably shouldn't think it can never happen.
At least one city in this country has already granted Muslims the right to say their prayers over loudspeakers.
We should all be keeping an eye on Europe and if this problem is contained there or continues to grow.

But liberals just love hating America.

Powerful countries historically make mistakes. But the mistakes made by what was once the beacon of liberty to the entire world are miniscule when compared to the invasions, occupations and forced colonization by other powerful countries and empires in the past.
They equate liberating and protecting as something bad and mistake us with the British Empire forcing themselves on countries like India.
Again, we liberate and protect.
Now I want all liberals to say that out loud.
"liberals just love running America",
is this not the basis of the daily whine?

Maybe CNN can explain it better.
The gross domestic product rose at a 1.7% annual rate in April through June, slightly faster than the 1.1% rate in the first quarter...[and just 0.1% the quarter before that].
Economists surveyed by CNNMoney had predicted GDP would grow at a 1.2% annual pace, so the report was better than expected and seen as an encouraging sign for the recovery.
That said, 1.7% growth is STILL CONSIDERED WEAK historically.
Since 1929, the U.S. economy has grown an average of 3.3% per year.
http://money.cnn.com/2013/07/31/news/economy/...
Which is the increase we have to see again if we're ever going to get anywhere.
Obama has changed the GDP calculation to make the economy look better than it is.

Fun with numbers.

Didn't think so.
