Barack Obama, our next President

And how many are citizens? A friend with an extensive background in healthcare and benefits was recently turned down for an ObamaCare Navigator position, because she is not fluent in Spanish.

On the other 10%--they hide it better than the rest. Islam doctrine is to take over the world. You can only be a muslim if you practice Islam. The vast majority of muslims around the world danced in the streets after 9-11-there plan for America was coming to fruition. You are like most Americans, you refuse to understand Islam.

Putin might be the leader if only he would have suggested his solution prior to being forced into it else risk a military strike on their ally & being tagged as a supporter of ChemicalWeapon warfare.

You made that up!

Assad's government is secular and allows for freedom of religion.

The Christians as well as other groups who supported continuation of this secular government approached the US for support in overthrowing Assad. However, the US gave this responsibility of identifying rebels to Turkey.

Turkey threw the support behind the Muslim Brotherhood and the many terrorist groups associated with it.

The Christians are being slaughtered because Islamic fanatics do this as they are in Egypt. They kill and do force conversions.

Your Iraq claim is a false flag as well. The constitution of Iraq allows for freedom of religion. The insurgency however does follow the constitution.

Well, that was misinformed.

Greece had gone bankrupt due to big spending on Social programs. In order to get a loan from the EU they were forced to develop an austerity program. Socialism doesn't work.

We had a balanced budget in 2000.
WTF happened?
Who took us from that balanced budget to doubling the debt, fomenting the worst recession in 80 years, a housing collapse,, a near financial meltdown & two quagmire wars?
You seem to chronically forget 9/11, even after its anniversary. Anyone who wants one party to control all branches of government is a fool.

"No Democrat-Controlled Congress Has Balanced Federal Budget in 40 Years; No Republican President Has Balanced Federal Budget in 50 Years

More recently, the federal budget was balanced in fiscal years 1998, 1999, 2000 and 2001. A Republican-controlled Congress approved the appropriations for each one of those years and Democratic President Bill Clinton signed them. In fiscal years 1994 and 1995, when President Clinton governed with a Democrat-controlled Congress, the federal government ran deficits of $203.2 billion and $163.9 billion respectively."

Sonic continues to make a flawed assertion.

He has no excuse for making the same dumb assertion more than once as he was informed of his error a while back.

"The Swedish Army trains land combat and air defence units which, in concert with Air Force and naval units, can be deployed operationally on both national and international missions.

The Army’s land forces are being reoriented towards an increasingly clear rapid-response, mission-oriented role which includes participation in international operations."

Evidently you also believe people that violate these resolutions should be only scolded only & just winked at & allowed to continue.
Syria needs to suffer the consequences of using thee weapons against their own people. You evidently think that Assad was right to use these weapons.
I support a military strike against Assad's military would be justified to punish Asaad for his military's use of chemical weapons. If a deal can be reached to avoid a strike that also punished Assad, then I would be OK with that also.
I was just correcting lily on who our resident war monger really is. Wear it as a badge, dumbass dave.

A fine example of how Democrats screw up everything can be found in California.

Despite what God and man in the past have given the state, CA has often squandered its inheritance,it is called Death by Liberal Policy.

For all its costly investments in wind & solar power, CA electricity rates are the steepest in the nation.
The tab falls most heavily not on the green elites of the affluent coastal communities, but on the poor and middle classes concentrated in the hotter & colder interior. For many in Fresno or Bakersfield, keeping on the air conditioning when August temperatures hit 100 is a fantasy from a bygone age.

Californians pay among the highest gas prices in the country. Again, those astronomical costs seem surreal, given that the state sits atop huge untapped deposits of gas & oil.

The California paradox of having among the highest taxes and among the worst services is also echoed in state-by-state rankings of public school test scores. California continues to place near the bottom.

Do those sky-high California gas taxes translate into superb roads? Not yet at least. Reason Foundation's 20th annual highway report ranked California roads 47th in the nation.

In the last 20 yrs, 3.4M middle- and upper-middle-class Californians have fled paradise for low- or no-tax states. In contrast, the state currently has had the largest influx of residents who immigrated ILLEGALLY.

Although exact numbers are impossible to obtain, estimates suggest that about 3M Latin American nationals are residing in California. Many are hardworking immigrants, but most arrive illegally, don't speak English, and don't have money or a high school education.

Ensuring foreign nationals minimum parity with US citizens requires huge state inputs in education, law enforcement and health services. The 2012 census listed CA as having the highest poverty level (23.5%) of any state in the union.

A state with roughly 12% of the U.S. population is now home to 33% of the nation's welfare recipients.

What, then, is the state's strategy for recovery? More taxes, regulations and government.

Apparently, officials in Sacramento assume that the state's rich inheritance, coastal culture, and natural beauty and climate will ensure that most Californians stay put, keep innovating, and pony up far more in sales, income and gas taxes.

The exorbitant cost of living will simply be the shakedown price of being a resident of hip Newport Beach or Palo Alto -- places believed to be safe, if not immune, from the turmoil growing elsewhere in the state.

So will California recover its past glory -- or go the way of Detroit?

It may do both.

Coastal greens, progressive Bay Area gays, liberal urban elites and hip dot-com workers will probably not soon flee the temperate, scenic corridor from Berkeley to San Diego. For at least a while longer, they will be wealthy and confident enough to afford the living costs that high taxes and myriads of regulations ensure.

Yet for the strapped middle classes in the interior of the Los Angeles basin and the Central Valley, there is a perfect storm raging. They can ill afford the soaring taxes, high unemployment, costly illegal immigration, escalating crime rates, substandard roads, record power and gas prices, underwater home values and dismal schools.

In short, the California coastal corridor still resembles Germany, while much of the interior is BECOMING GREECE.
