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

Chasm widens down to the deeper levels in the dysfunctional republican party.
Thomas Doherty, chief PR man for former Governor George Pataki, has lost faith in the republican party. Receiving information {July 2013} that the republicans were going to walk the immigration bill to death.
So discouraged he has publicly stated he will be leaving his party of 32 years.
Doherty, no liberal, has come to the conclusion “That my party has elements within it that dislike homosexuals and think America is still in the 1940’s. AND while we talk about liberty and freedom, that liberty and freedom only seem to be acceptable for some.”
This is representing the growing oppositional forces that are increasing the rifts within the republican party. All the way down to its fundamental infrastructures of support. Doherty goes on to say about the republicans,“ Their rigidity is killing them. It’s either purity or you are anathema”!

72 Types Of Americans That Are Considered “Potential Terrorists” In Official Government Documents
At one time, the term “terrorist” was used very narrowly. The government applied that label to people like Osama bin Laden and other Islamic jihadists. But now the (illegal)NWO Obama regime is removing all references to Islam from terror training materials, and instead the term “terrorist” is being applied to large groups of American citizens.
And if you are a “terrorist”, that means that you have no Rights and the government can treat you just like it treats the terrorists that are being held at Guantanamo Bay. So if you belong to a group of people that is now being referred to as “potential terrorists”, please don’t take it as a joke. The first step to persecuting any group of people is to demonize them. And right now large groups of peaceful, law-abiding citizens in America are being ruthlessly demonized...

Anytime any president addresses a group of loyal followers and tells them they should "punish our enemies" and he's not talking about foreign enemies...we're in deep doo-doo.

Imagine if President Bush spoke in front of an audience of loyal conservatives and had even implied liberals were the "enemy".

My first reaction would be "WHAT enemies??" I would have been appalled and quite upset.

Bush would have never gotten away with saying something like that though. The liberal media would have chewed him up and spit him out 24/7.

He would have been vilified long before Congressional Democrats became weasels and left him to hang out to dry for personal and political gain after the Iraq War.

But liberals and the liberal media have no problem with the rest of us being called the "enemy". And why Homeland Security had no problem putting the Tea Party on the "enemies list". And why the IRS felt justified in targeting the "enemy". And why liberals call the "enemy" racists.

And why we're in such deep doo-doo.

Clearly the only way in which a person can be discriminated against for life is by making him a felon. It's not right.
Can you believe we agree on something? LOL
<quoted text> She suggests that it is our fault that felons are criminals. We as a society do not force people to commit crimes,they do it of their our desire. Recognition of true facts about a persons criminal history is not discrimination. Certainly,it would be great if every one could have a job,but that is never going to happen since the guy who is currently occupying The White House has an anti-employment agenda.
She like the other poster is referring to after they have done their prison time. To treat them as felons after they have paid their debt to society would be considered discrimination.

Homer not aware of anyone occupying the Whitehouse with an anti employment agenda, sounds like nonsense.

Look at the polls in 2009 when moderate democrats were bribed behind closed doors to get on board with Obamacare and it was then pushed down the rest of our throats by a strictly partisan vote.

The majority were against it then. Look at the polls today.

You really are a hateful person. But you love Obama. Which explains it.

You'd think with the power behind the Department of Justice and Eric Holder's fired up determination to make this a racial crime and his mission to file a civil suit against Zimmerman, Zimmerman would already be back in the news - and in court.
Holder's use of the FBI [at the taxpayers' expense] couldn't find one shred of evidence this was true.
So give it up, Homer. Eric Holder did.

I don't really know what MLK would or would not approve of.
But I will say again taking this opportunity to have democrat/pep rally is cheap at the very best.
Obigears thinks he is MLK or at least as good.
Jesse Jackson with his bloody shirt would certainly not be a big hit with MLK. But liars will be liars and then they raise children who go to the slammer for theft and lying. Just the fake rev's ways.
The problem with that rally was far too much rhetoric identifying the problems and placing blame but not one solution.

Obama at least put out an effort to make the black community take a long and hard look at itself - but it was too little, too late.

The George W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum opened May 1 on the campus of Southern Methodist University in Dallas after much anticipation. The $250 million library brought together all living presidents for a dedication ceremony on April 25, where they showered praise on the 43rd president of the United States.

But according to the Democratic nonprofit group Bridge Project, which focuses on "exposing the conservative movement's dishonest tactics," the library's version of the Bush legacy suffers from selective memory loss. Bridge Project thus created a library of its own Thursday, in the form of a website BushRewrite.org , which the group said will "rectify the falsehoods and omissions of the Bush library."

The timing coincides with the eighth anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, a low point of Bush's two-term presidency. The Bush library has already been accused of glossing over Katrina, which killed 1,833 people and destroyed an estimated $81 billion in property. The library overlooks the Bush administration's delayed reaction and includes no pictures of the desperate crowds at the Louisiana Superdome or the New Orleans Morial Convention Center -- images that quickly spurred suggestions that race was a factor in the muted federal response.

The halls of the Bush library ignore other disturbing facts, the Bush Rewrite states on the website. The Huffington Post was offered an exclusive look at the website, which says that the Bush White House "was plagued by a series of scandals and controversies" and "policy failures." It contains pages with what Bridge Project calls a "stark reminder" of Bush's true legacy, ranging from the economy, which revisits events preceeding the 2008 financial collapse, to war and national security, which highlights the Bush administration's torture and rendition programs.

The Bush Rewrite also recalls Bush's record on education, environmental policy and Social Security. In some cases, the website displays pictures taken at the Bush Library to underscore the contrast between the museum's more favorable remembrance with media reports.

A section called "The Missing Wing" is dedicated to controversial moments under Bush's presidency that his library chose not to mention, such as the roles played by Vice President Dick Cheney and senior adviser-turned-deputy chief of staff Karl Rove, the Abu Ghraib prisoner torture scandal, and Bush's support for a constitutional amendment banning same-sex marriage.

Bridge Project also uses the website to argue that congressional Republicans continue pushing policies that are harmful today.

Also, LCN, going back to the topic of ETs, I'm still quite convinced we're connected somehow.

They were around since the beginning of civilization with more than enough evidence to prove that as well.

It's quite amazing they are making their presence known so much more now than in centuries past.

And I not only have to believe we have a direct connection with them somehow but they are preventing us from destroying ourselves.

If you still haven't figured it out by now, Obamacare is not the solution we've been waiting for.
It's time to start over with both sides involved this time and a significant number from both sides on board to pass a bipartisan legislation that WILL work.
And, hopefully, less than 200 pages with even less regulations.
You keep waiting for the Republicans. Carol.

After the defeat of Hillarycare,Republicans ran Congress for 12 straight years. Why didn't they fix it then?

Why an't they offer a replacement plan now?

They took over Egypt, then got booted out, dumbass. If you don't know the players in the game, you might want to just read and learn a little about what's going on in the world before you run your ignorant mouth. All Suni terrorists are Wahhabist. All Wahhabist are pursuing the same goal. If this is too difficult of a concept for you, then confine yourself to discussions in some second grade class.
Al Qaeda took over Afghanistan. We got 9/11.
Al Qaeda has two known bases in Libya where they train their insurgents then ship them off to Syria to take over that country.
The Wahhabists got booted out of the government in Egypt. They are desperate to take over a country. They are trying to take over Syria. If you study some history, you'll find not too long ago Egypt and Syria were the same country. The Wahhabists wanted to recreate the old United Arab Republic, but before that could happen they got tossed out of the government of Egypt. They desperately need to take over some country to avoid being pushed back into the caves they belong in.
Obama is a stooge for the Wahhabists. They need the United States to bomb Assad.
If Al Qaeda takes over Syria, they get chemical weapons.
Now, back to the question you're still running away from:
Do you want to get Americans killed helping Al Qaeda acquire chemical weapons?
Al Qaeda was never running Egypt You are either a liar or the dumbest subsidized pretend oilfield engineer in the world..
