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

No, that is untrue when not specifically referenced.
Assumptions such as that have no basis in fact.
Half the post here do not respond to the original post.
Besides, Galt does not care for religious education and most certainly does not approve of taxpayer subsidies for same. That goes for Roman schools and other religions, as well as the born-again types. Also applies to any subsidies for home-schooling of any kind.
Do what you want, but pay for it yourself.
See, we agree on the school vouchers issue.

Mitt Romney wasn't going to allow it either as it was him to changed the 2012 RNC rules that forced Ron Paul delegates to give up their votes to him or risk police arrest and ban from the Convention altogether. Romney acted more like Joseph Stalin than Abraham Lincoln.

90% of small businesses under-report their income and are therefore tax cheats.
Letís talk about this in the correct light. The Text book state that 1/3 of the American economy is cash based. So one dollar in three is a cash transaction. The truth is it is higher than that. I am not saying that is a bad thing. This affects at least 25% of the working poor.(Econ 101) Now the President has instituted new reforms regarding cash transaction. Here are some past and present laws.
A. You can only have $9,999.99 on your person. Past
B. If can only get $2,999.99 money orders without paper work. New
C. If you draw out more than $8,000 cash the bank has to fill out paper work. New
D. You can be paid up to $699.99 without receiving a 1099 tax form. Past
This should be enough to start my point. You will find now that small bars and restaurants that paid people under the table are now being hammered By the IRS. If your state is like Illinois were they are trying to make it were every person who works at a bar has to have their photo and hours posted so a state inspector can make sure a person is not being paid cash. Now for liability reasons I can understand that. This is a recessive tax on the working poor. Truth be known, most of what the president has done for taxation are recessive taxes.

No Wonder Caliphonybrokia is BANKRUPT in piles of theyowetheUS!

I'm thinking CHRISTIE, Paul (And Uncle Joe) SHOULD have one of those "beer summits" . Rand brings the beer and some chicken and dumplings, Christie brings fresh Joisey shrimp and sauce for cocktail hor'derves, and Uncle Joe can bring a nice salad of tossed greens and grueirre cheese with some nice, lightly, flaked crust French bread. Evereebody bring they own favorite salad dressing.
Discussion on the state of Temecula in Caliphonybrokia's extreme debt following that!

TRS

Topic Reminder Service (TRS) is a publicly-funded non-political organization founded to update Forum Users with accurate factual reminders. This particular Topic could be - indeed has been - deemed out-of-date or "dead" since November 4th, 2008. However, persuant of common OPINION, it has remained one of the more-popular Topix to this day. At this point in time, over four years after the topic's origin and considering none of the facts will change for another four years (making for an estimated eight-year lifecycle), TRS is presenting the following reminders of FACT-

Barack Hussein Obama II is the 44th and current President of the United States. He is the first African American to hold the office. Obama is a graduate of Columbia University and Harvard Law School, where he was president of the Harvard Law Review.

Born in Honolulu, Hawaii USA on August 4, 1961, he served three terms representing the 13th District in the Illinois Senate from 1997 to 2004, running unsuccessfully for the United States House of Representatives in 2000.

He began his first presidential campaign in 2007, defeating Republican nominee John McCain in the general election, and was inaugurated as president on January 20, 2009. Nine months later, Obama was named the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize laureate.

Obama was re-elected president in November 2012, defeating Republican nominee Mitt Romney. He is the first two-term Democrat POTUS since Franklin D. Roosevelt to win two presidential elections with a majority of the popular vote. During his second inaugural address on January 21, 2013, Obama called for full equality for gays: "Our journey is not complete until our gay brothers and sisters are treated like anyone else under the law- for if we are truly created equal, then surely the love we commit to one another must be equal as well."

On February 17, 2009, Obama signed the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, a $787,000,000,000 economic stimulus package aimed at helping the economy recover from the deepening worldwide recession, thereby continuing an economic aid policy first instituted under the preceding (Republican) President George W. Bush.

Domestic policy items include the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act AKA Obama Care, signed into law on March 23, 2010. Barack Obama appointed two women to serve on the Supreme Court in the first two years of his Presidency. Sonia Sotomayor, nominated by Obama on May 26, 2009, was confirmed on August 6, 2009, becoming the first Hispanic Supreme Court Justice. Elena Kagan, nominated by Obama on May 10, 2010, was confirmed on August 5, 2010, bringing the number of women sitting simultaneously on the Court to three, for the first time in American history.

On January 16, 2013 President Obama outlined a series of sweeping gun control proposals, urging Congress to reintroduce an expired ban on "military-style" assault weapons, impose limits on ammunition magazines to 10 rounds, introduce background checks on all gun sales, pass a ban on possession and sale of armor-piercing bullets, as well as additional measures.

Notable foreign policy items include the draw-down of troops in Afghanistan and the end of military operations in Iraq as of August 31, 2010. On March 16, 2011, he authorized the U.S. Military to engage in air strikes against Libya's governmental air defense capabilities in order to protect civilians and enforce a no-fly zone. On May 1, 2011, Obama authorized a "surgical raid" by United States Navy SEALs in Abbottabad, Pakistan, resulting in the death of international terrorist and al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden and the seizure of papers, computer drives and disks from bin Laden's compound.

The final Abbasid caliph/caliphate went down with Baghdad in 1258 when the Mongols came to town, since then Islam has been in disarray particularly during the long period of Ottoman rule.
Some but not most Muslims wish for a new caliphate (central power) but it won't happen for obvious reasons.
Your ignorance on the subject should embarrass you.
Never said he was. What I said was ever since Mohammed.

Well, no.
First of all, you're not welcome. This is part of the Muslim history and culture since Mohammed.
There have been many caliphs since Mohammed and many eras of caliphates but not since the 1920s.
Most Muslims believe the next one is the "biggy" and the final one...as stated by the Muslim Brotherhood's founder "either by political means or by force".
Do you want to learn anything? Or do you like living in the Land of Stupid on purpose?
No wonder this country is so screwed up.
