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

Well, if he has an original birth certificate, he hasn't shown it to anyone. The document shown on the White House website is very obviously fraudulent. It is so obviously fraudulent, Obama's lawyers will say and do anything to avoid submitting it as evidence in any court case. As long as that document is on the White House website, it's just propaganda. If it is ever submitted as evidence in any court room, a felony will have been committed.
Where are those supposed college transcripts? All we know about Barry Soetoro at Occidental is the people in his classes describe him as a poor student, and court-ordered release of the Fulbright Grant application shows Barry Soetoro claiming to be a muslim and citizen of Indonesia, coincidentally during a time when Sukarno was the military dictator and didn't allow dual citizenship. For Barry Soetoro to not have been lying, there would be on record in Indonesia a document of renouncement of Barry's US citizenship. If he chose to reactivate his supposed US citizenship after he was 18, or his mother chose to do so, there would be documents in the US State Department concerning this. There have been no college transcripts released.
How about this....
Release all application and admission documents from Occidental, Columbia and Harvard, along with the transcripts.
How about that question you run away from now...
What name is on the supposed diploma Obama supposedly received from Columbia?
Got a problem there, don't you?

The Boston Globe painted a different picture.
As a state senator, the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee coauthored an Illinois law creating a new pool of tax credits for developers. As a US senator, he pressed for increased federal subsidies. But a Globe review found that thousands of apartments across Chicago that had been built with local, state, and federal subsidies - including several hundred in Obama's former district - deteriorated so completely that they were no longer habitable.
Grove Parc and several other prominent failures were developed and managed by Obama's close friends and political supporters. Those people profited from the subsidies even as many of Obama's constituents suffered. Tenants lost their homes; surrounding neighborhoods were blighted.
http://www.boston.com/news/nation/articles/20...
According to the article, "Some people in Chicago's poorest neighborhoods are torn between a natural inclination to support Obama and a concern about his relationships with the developers they hold responsible for Chicago's affordable housing failures. Some housing advocates worry that Obama has not learned from those failures."
Willie J.R. Fleming, a former public housing resident said, "I'm not against Barack Obama. What I am against is some of the people around him."
But didn't Obama tell us we would know him by who surrounded him?
Sure Carol, change the subject. Parc Grove was an experiment to see if the private sector could do a better job than the public sector, something conservatives have advocated for quite a while. It failed because there just wasn't enough money.

About 17 percent of the African-Americans who moved to the South from other states in the past decade came from New York, far more than from any other state, according to census data. Of the 44,474 who left New York State in 2009, more than half, or 22,508, went to the South.
The percentage of blacks leaving big cities in the East and in the Midwest and heading to the South is now at the highest levels in decades, demographers say.

Now, why is that, you ask? Good question, Homer.
This movement is a reversal of the Great Migration when African-Americans moved to the industrialized North to escape prejudice and find work.
The current exodus from the north, east and Midwest stems largely from tough economic times. New York is increasingly unaffordable and blacks see more opportunities in the South.
The South now offers blacks the potential for achievement.
Southern states have long since been populated by northerners and moved toward opportunities and economic stability for decades.
It's not the same world anymore, Homer.
There might be a quiz later.

You are talking about maybe a few hundred thousand people spread over many states, you made this claim -

Even if states rights determined the outcome, there weren't enough blacks left in the south for the Democrats to oppress anymore. And they would have been left high and dry when the rest of them fled to the other states who passed the Civil Rights Act.

It's total bullshit.

Please describe who "them" is.

By the way the Detroit 2012 voting turnout was about 65% of registered voters or about 270,000 votes.

Might as well be an eternity before 2016 with so many unknowns.
Don't think abortion is going to be at the top of the list. Unless the liberals declare another invisible war on women.
But it's not unreasonable people who are anti-abortion not wanting their taxes paying for them.
Liberals think it's perfectly reasonable. But, heaven forbid, their taxes have to pay for a voucher system.
You don't see any hypocrisy there? Or do you?
Did you ever here of the Hyde Amendment Carol? It says that no federal funds can be spent on abortion and it's still the law.

Roe v Wade was initially limited in its scope.
•In the first trimester, the state could treat abortion only as a medical decision leaving medical judgment to the woman's physician.
•In the second trimester (before viability), the state's interest was seen as legitimate when it was protecting the health of the mother.

Obama Administration Pro Prayer ..

Supreme Court to consider prayer at government meetings
Baltimore-area localities vary widely in practice
August 10, 2013|By Jonathan Pitts and Pamela Wood, The Baltimore Sun

Whether the Carroll County commissioners meet to discuss zoning, the budget or other local issues, they start the same way — with prayer.

Commissioners take turns offering the prayer, often invoking God or Jesus. All five commissioners stand, as do any audience members who choose to, and then the lawmakers go ahead with their business.

"Prayer adds a certain sort of reverence to what we're about to do," says Douglas Howard, president of the Carroll County Board of Commissioners.

That view is not unusual in the Baltimore area. Three counties open meetings with a lawmaker's prayer, and the Baltimore City Council begins with the words of local clergy. But a lawsuit scheduled to reach the Supreme Court this fall could affect the ways such prayers are made.

The high court will review a ruling that a town near Rochester, N.Y., had violated the First Amendment ban on "establishment of religion." For years, the Greece town supervisor had invited a local minister to deliver an opening prayer at the council's monthly meeting. Members of the public attending the meeting were encouraged to join in the prayers.

Two residents, one Jewish and one an atheist, complained for several years that the prayers were offensive and inappropriate. Until they sued in 2008, only Christians had been invited to lead the prayers.

Seen through the eyes of a "reasonable observer," the town's prayer policy "must be viewed as an endorsement of … a Christian viewpoint," the U.S. 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals said in ruling against the town. The Supreme Court agreed in May to hear the town's appeal.

The case has led to an unusual agreement between

the Obama administration and congressional

Republicans that town councils should be allowed to

open their meetings with a Christian prayer.

The Bush administration payment of columnists refers to the payment of public funds to right-wing media commentators by several U.S. executive departments under Cabinet officials to promote various policies of U.S. President George W. Bush's administration. Hundreds of thousands of dollars were paid to at least three commentators to promote Bush administration policies.
