Barack Obama, our next President

There is a history of racial instability north of the Mason-Dixon line. If you look into these things, you'll find riots in places like Boston when the forced bussing that had become law somehow was instituted there.
I don't know if it was bigotry. It may have been as simple as fear for the safety of the children. It would have been common knowledge the dangers associated with Jamaica Plains, and to have forced insertion into and from that location of known uncivilized behavior would upset any parent who lived primarily to safeguard their children.
Such decisions as this are directly related to the destruction of our education system.

A big group of foreign policy experts, from across the ideological spectrum, is calling on President Obama to impose "meaningful consequences on the Assad regime" for their use of chemical weapons.
"At a minimum, the United States, along with willing allies and partners, should use standoff weapons and airpower to target the Syrian dictatorship’s military units that were involved in the recent large-scale use of chemical weapons. It should also provide vetted moderate elements of Syria’s armed opposition with the military support required to identify and strike regime units armed with chemical weapons," the experts write.
"Moreover, the United States and other willing nations should consider direct military strikes against the pillars of the Assad regime. The objectives should be not only to ensure that Assad’s chemical weapons no longer threaten America, our allies in the region or the Syrian people, but also to deter or destroy the Assad regime’s airpower and other conventional military means of committing atrocities against civilian non-combatants. At the same time, the United States should accelerate efforts to vet, train, and arm moderate elements of Syria’s armed opposition, with the goal of empowering them to prevail against both the Assad regime and the growing presence of Al Qaeda-affiliated and other extremist rebel factions in the country."
The signatories on the letter addressed to President Obama inlcude Senator Joe Lieberman, Bernard-Henri Levy, Karl Rove, Bill Kristol, Elliott Abrams, Leon Wieseltier, and many others. Right now, 66 experts have signed the letter.
Here's the full letter and list of signatories:....

A real conservative doesn't believe in individual rights and the individual freedoms and liberties being guaranteed to everyone without being treated as a subject of some government. A real conservative believes in government control of everything, and believes people as a group are incompetent and incapable of deciding what is best for themselves. A real conservative thinks there should be one person who is "obviously" superior to everyone else making decisions for everyone, and everyone should blindly comply with those decisions.

You, my ignorant buffoon, are a real conservative. The real liberals believe in individual rights and liberties, minimal government control, and don't blindly follow anyone.

I'm betting this is news to you.

LEARN IT!!!!!!!!!!
NO POTUS is above it!
I would suggest YOU familiarize yourself with the War Powers Resolution which gives the President 90 days within which to notify Congress after committing armed forces to military action "without an authorization of the use of military force or a declaration of war."

I would further suggest you familiarize yourself with our duties under the United Nations Charter and NATO. When the Charter was signed, Congress authorized the President to commit armed forces as part of an international body. Besides, Obama's attempt to stitch together a multilateral alliance before turning to Congress doesn't violate a damn thing and only makes common sense.

I'll be bucking at the county fair.
Amarillo by morning, Amarillo I'll be there.

They took my saddle in Houston, broke my leg in Santa Fe.
Lost my wife and a girlfriend somewhere along the way.
Well I'll be looking for eight when they pull that gate,
And I'm hoping that judge ain't blind.
Amarillo by morning, Amarillo's on my mind.

One of the reviews about "Checkpoint" written by Nicholas Baker.
Reading Jay's (one of the characters in the book) crazed rationale for killing Bush made me want to pick up the phone, tip off the FBI, and turn myself in for not notifying the feds the moment an advance copy appeared in my mailbox...What makes "Checkpoint" a work of pornography isn't that its characters debate killing George W. Bush. What makes it pornography is the shameless way it panders to its readers' crudest beliefs." - Timothy Noah, Slate
http://www.amazon.com/Checkpoint-A-Novel-Nich...
I'm pretty sure you read far too much into what you thought you heard in that hotel because it's exactly what you wanted to hear.
Can you imagine if book where one of the characters explicitly talked about assassinating Obama?
That rodeo clown is getting death threats just for wearing his mask.
Carol, "Checkpoint" was basically a rambling conversation between two old friends in a hotel room, one who has been obviously pushed to the edge and wants to assassinate Bush and the other who tries to convince him that it's a really bad idea. They also discuss free-range chicken; Jay's various jobs, which include being a roofer and a lobster fisherman; Jay's opposition to abortion; Ben's career as a college professor; and Ben's struggle with writer's block. The two also touch on Vietnam, the CIA, weaponry and a vast assortment of conspiracy theories. It is in no way a how to book.
I heard what I heard Carol.

Lo, and behold, I agree with the UN.

Ban Ki-moon: Syria needs diplomatic solution. Security Council can’t be “missing in action.”

It seems the Arab push back against Al Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood and their allies like Obama has some traction.

So, say you get health Insurance coverage thru BC/BS that your employer pays 75% of the cost. It is part of your benefit package.

So, your employer then decides instead to no longer use BC/BS & opts to go to Aetna.

Won't they still cover 75%?

The White House did not offer to pay, Congress did. They did it when they defined the employee benefit package. Congress also decided to switch from their current supplier options to the options in the exchange.

Obama had nothing to do with that. Republicans added that stipulation to the ACA & all the Democrats voted for that amendment.

You right whiners should really become better informed.

Here you are blabbing about the Middle East & possible US action.

At the same time,you promote the lie that Obama backed the Muslim Brotherhood.

It is a lie. You know it. So either provide some prove or STFU.

STFU?

Yep STFU.

The moe you right whiners present that lie, the more likely people in the Middle East might think it is true & hurt our position on that region.

But hey, what else would I expect from an Anti American clan like the Tea Party.

I know, you can press your Republican buddies to pass a resolution against military action in Syria unless Obamacare is repealed. That would be par for the course for the pathetic Republican/Tea Party.

It's a catch 22! I understand &, support the need for intervention in the civil war in Syria, in which America got the ball rolling in the first place but, in the hood, there's a saying " I got my mind right, money right, ready for war." America's not at a collective so, our mind's not right. We're also deep in debt so, our money's not right which leaves us incapable of war at this present time. Other countries recognize our weakness &, are doing their best to exploit them. You have to build home &, take care of home before you commit to such a thing. I think we should mind our business on this one. We're not strong enough to go to war with another superpower. Russia is backing Syria. This has the propensity to get very ugly!

Embracing misinformation on Obama

“Obama derangement syndrome is running pretty high right now among a certain segment of the Republican base,” Tom Jensen, director of Public Policy Polling, told me.“There’s a certain segment of people who say,‘If you’re going to give me the opportunity to stick it to Obama, I’m going to take it.’&#8201;”

In other words, a large number of that 29 percent who said Obama was responsible for the Katrina response knew that he wasn’t but saw it as a chance to register their displeasure with the president. Obama has driven a large number of Republican voters — Jensen puts it at 15 to 20 percent of the overall electorate — right off their rockers. And to that, there is only one thing to say.

Heckuva job, Barry.

~Booker T. Washington
Yeah I noticed that this quote is a favorite of a lot of right wing web site who like you just throw it out without any understanding of the context or history attached to it.
In the period following the Civil War there were divisions among black leaders on how best to advance the rights of blacks. Booker T Washington's ideas were more on the line of "go along to get along" as opposed to WEB Dubois who advocated a more active and confrontational strategy. Washington was the architect of the Atlanta Compromise, an unwritten deal he struck in 1895 with Southern white leaders who had taken over government after the failure of Reconstruction. The agreement provided that Southern blacks would submit to discrimination, segregation, lack of voting rights, and non-unionized employment; that Southern whites would permit blacks to receive a basic education, some economic opportunities, and justice within the legal system; and that Northern whites would invest in Southern enterprises and fund black educational charities. Du Bois felt that African Americans should fight for equal rights, rather than passively submit to the segregation and discrimination of Washington's Atlanta Compromise.
They also differed in their approach to education with Washington of the opinion that black education should be limited to the industrial arts and agriculture while Du Bois felt that black schools should also offer a liberal arts curriculum (including the classics, arts, and humanities), because liberal arts were required to develop a leadership elite. Booker T Washington also didn't want to alienate his wealthy patrons like Andrew Carnegie who basically liked his accomodationist philosophy which relegated blacks to second class status.
