Barack Obama, our next President

That's what they used to say in every other Western country also. Your whole narrative is one big fat lie. Islamic law contravenes American freedoms in numerous particulars. Moslems have demanded, and received, special accommodation in public schools, in the workplace, in our government, and in privately owned businesses. The obfuscation and deliberate confusion spewed by liberals like you and all the other idiots is a tactic to defeat the prohibition of Islamic law in American courts and culture. If Sharia was so wonderful you would be trying to compare it to other religions, it would stand on its own. You are using the same tactic most terrorists use.

Tell us again where Obama was a community organizer? Where was that place? Oh, yeah. Wasn't Obama a community organizer, whatever the hell that is, in Chicago?
What Chicago needs is a community organizer that can lead them from the uncivilized norm that exists there today toward a civilized existence. Offhand, I can't think of anyone who can do that.
The United States ranks among the worst countries in the world for gun violence.
If the cities of Chicago, New York, Washington, D.C., and New Orleans are taken out of the calculation, the United States ranks the 4th best place in the world to live with respect to gun violence.
What do those four cities have in common?
The first thing that comes to mind is they have a traditional Democrat city government.
I suppose Detroit could be looked at, too.
Name a city in the US with a traditional Republican city government that resembles the obviously uncivilized cities run by Democrats.
See how fast you single out a single aspect &, start attacking. Republican cities such as in republican states, have a higher propensity for racial violence than democratic cities. Sad to say it but, most murders in those cities you named are victims of gang violence, gang on hand violence! That's the life they chose. Nobody chose to be their race. They are what they are &, it's common in republican states that violence be taken under the guise of racial pretenses. That's what should looked at &, scrutinized. Both black & white. Southern N. America is racially divided &, it's almost like the system works with white racist to get off Scottfree. Talk about that!

I'd love to live in a world without guns.
Laws enforced by Democrats obviously won't do that. If you doubt that, just look at Chicago.
So, since that is an impossibility, and it's overwhelmingly obvious a defense against the uncivilized behavior of Obama's base is necessary, then you ain't gonna take my gun.

Okay Carol, let's go with a popular definition of insanity often attributed to Albert Einstein;
Doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.
The Republicans in the House have voted 40 times to repeal the ACA with no chance of it going any further. That would seem to indicate that they've totally lost their minds.
Your 2012 primary slate was a perfect example. You had one viable candidate in John Huntsman who could have actually won but he wasn't as delusional enough to attract the extreme right wing base. So when all of the crazies finally fell to the wayside you were left with a sociopathic snake oil salesman who got drubbed even in his home state.

Mitt Romney, meet Ronald Reagan. The Romney-Ryan campaign labels the 47 percent of people who don’t pay federal income taxes as “takers.” But to President Reagan, the godfather of today’s conservatives, anyone who worked for a living was a maker, whether he or she paid taxes or not.
Reagan strongly supported the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC), which sends checks to Americans who work but earn less than around $46,000 a year, depending on family size. Recipients of the credit are among those who don’t pay income tax, but Reagan never regarded that as a problem. His administration estimated that the 1986 reform of the tax code would remove 6 million working poor from the tax rolls. Reagan called the reform a “sweeping victory for fairness” and “perhaps the biggest antipoverty program in our history.”

Enough of the small rocks this morning. Let's make these self-described "liberal" frauds break out the big rocks.

For a fraud like Obama to be admitted to Harvard after being a poor student and dropout at Occidental, and never even attending classes at Columbia, someone who busted their ass and made the sacrifices to attend Harvard had to be denied.

I wonder who was denied attendance at Harvard after busting their asses and making all the sacrifices so a fraud like Obama could get that on his fraudulent resume.

Who was the person refused admittance to Harvard so the fraud Obama could attend?

Is it racial violence? Or, is it cultural? What do you think will happen when a culture that has no respect for another person's rights, property and life comes into contact with a culture that places the highest regard on individual rights, private property and a person's life?
The problem is, when you define the different cultures, it coincidentally approximates a racial difference.

Reagan was proud of the EITC considering the legislation one of the greatest achievements of his presidency.

Bush II expanded the EITC.

Secret court scolded NSA over surveillance in 2011, declassified documents reveal
Kimberly Dozier and Stephen Braun, The Associated Press (8/22/2013)

WASHINGTON -- The Obama administration has given up more of its surveillance secrets, acknowledging that it was ordered to stop scooping up thousands of Internet communications from Americans with no connection to terrorism — a practice it says was an unintended consequence when it gathered bundles of Internet traffic connected to terror suspects.

One of the documents that intelligence officials released Wednesday came because a court ordered the National Security Agency to do so. But it's also part of the administration's response to the leaks by analyst-turned-fugitive Edward Snowden, who revealed that the NSA's spying programs went further and gathered millions more communications than most Americans realized.

The NSA declassified three secret court opinions showing how it revealed to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court that one of its surveillance programs may have collected and stored as many as 56,000 emails and other communications by ordinary Americans annually over three years. The court ruled the NSA actions unconstitutional and ordered the agency to fix the problem, which it did by creating new technology to filter out buckets of data most likely to contain U.S. emails, and then limit the access to that data.

The director of national intelligence, James Clapper, released the information Wednesday "in the interest of increased transparency," and as directed by President Barack Obama in June, according to a statement accompanying the online documents

I think Homer will go with a 'Reagan' theme today.

Big government, big spender, huge debt, allowed free reign for corporations to crush the middle class.

Reagan's Toll on the Middle Class

Top 1% average per-capita income -
1980 - 1990

427K --> 661K increase of 55%

Income of bottom 90% same time period decreased

30,900 --> 30,800

pretty nice raise.
her job in the Chicago market would have been a 65 thousand dollar a year job. It's called pay to play.
