Barack Obama, our next President

Have you heard of Khan Academy?
Seems like a good thing. You know almost all colleges offer online classes now. You people have to get rid of your old ways of thinking. The past is gone and the future beckons. The world you know now is not the world of tomorrow. It is changing before your very eyes. But you do not see it. Think of the changes over the last 25 years. How much different will it be in 25 more.

The SNAP program doesn't need fixing moron, it's working just fine. We don't let people in this country go hungry especially children. What's obscene is the fact that a few make their fortunes on the backs of workers who make so little that they need public assistance to maintain a barely sustainable existence.
If the minimum wage was raised then people would have more income to spend and stimulate the economy. That's not giving people money nitwit, It's giving them an honest living wage. Idiots like you would rather shill for those who couldn't be bothered to piss on you if you were on fire.
The SNAP program causes obesity. Without SNAP, American blacks would be marathon runners like the Kenyans.

A bill that would allow non-physicians to perform abortions in the first trimester of pregnancy is awaiting signature by Gov. Jerry Brown of California by Sep. 30. The bill, AB 154, passed both houses of the state legislature with strong support from Planned Parenthood and pro-choice groups. Planned Parenthood stands to benefit most directly from the bill, as non-physician staff at its clinics would be able to obtain abortion licenses.
One doctor--who identified himself as pro-choice--told Breitbart News that "the bill is a disaster since it sends us back 100 years to the problems of the complications from back-steet abortions." The bill's critics warn that the training provided to non-physician staff is weak, that supervision by physicians in clinics will be minimal, and that there is real risk of injury or death to women who will be treated in such conditions.
The California legislature is completely out of control and this bill is one of the least offensive.

The bright side is that back-alley abortions without qualified physicians at Planned Parenthood clinics will eventually lead to lawsuits that will negatively affect the organization.

Fix the GD school. Quit cutting education funding. Quit cutting programs to help these kids.
Bad schools cannot be fixed when bad teachers cannot be fired.

"War Pigs"

Generals gathered in their masses,
just like witches at black masses.
Evil minds that plot destruction,
sorcerers of death's construction.
In the fields the bodies burning,
as the war machine keeps turning.
Death and hatred to mankind,
poisoning their brainwashed minds...Oh lord yeah!

Politicians hide themselves away
They only started the war
Why should they go out to fight?
They leave that role to the poor

Time will tell on their power minds
Making war just for fun
Treating people just like pawns in chess
Wait `till their judgement day comes, yeah!

Now in darkness, world stops turning,
as you hear the bodies burning.
No more war pigs of the power,
hand of god has struck the hour.
Day of judgement, god is calling,
on their knees the war pigs crawling.
Begging mercy for their sins,
Satan, laughing, spreads his wings...Oh lord, yeah!

A Brilliant Mess
....The net result, accidental or not, is that Syria is no longer just an American problem. They say they will give up the poison gas that, wink, wink, was never used. The principle, as Obama said,“that with modest effort and risk we stop children from being gassed to death,” is there on the table for a world that preferred to look the other way. And, added bonus: the neocon warriors are gone, homeless in both parties. All of this is a hugely positive leap from where we were a week, a month, or a year ago.
But outcomes don’t really matter to those obsessed by who won and who lost, those who see all politics as up-and-down nonsense instead of a clash of ideas with real consequences. So this past week has to be cast in the tired terms of the daily struggle for sound-bite supremacy. It’s a debacle. A blunder. A humiliation.“This rudderless diplomacy,” said Reince Priebus, chairman of the Republican Party,“has embarrassed America on the world stage.”
You want embarrassment? Just consider some of the public statements of Republicans in the last two weeks.
http://opinionator.blogs.nytimes.com/2013/09/...
Russia will take custody of the Syrian chemical weapons at some time in the future, Syria suffers no penalty, and Assad has the green light to continue his war against Al Qaeda. Obama gets to continue shooting off his mouth in meaningless threats, unsupported by Congress or the American people.

Win-win.

Bawaaahhh!!! You are a joke, airhead.
In a nutshell, nutjob, what we have now thanks to Obama is a Middle East where the USA was, after decades of Super Power status, relegated to now having to negotiate with the Russians.
Obama did not get support from the U.N., the allies, Congress, nor the American people. He demonstrated how inept & indecisive he is, and exposed the fraud cannot get consensus.
The Community Organizer is rated very low on foreign policy, the most important (traditionally) job for any president.
Obama's legacy will be the president that steered us towards weakness and a low standing in world opinion, and a lower standard of living for all Americans except the very wealthy.
Knock yourself out trying to spin.
Gee, didn't Obama make Putin back down?

Why is Obama losing the world-
Obama is a destabilizing war monger in the Middle East. He has brought down both Egypt and Libya. The once stabilized governments is now over ran by the Muslim Brotherhood and their off branches.
Now he is targeting Syria-another stable government that has kept its PAC with Israel for decades- and is arming rebels/terrorist who thinks Syria needs punished for doing this.
I would like to think Obama is a bumbler but there appears to be a little more thought out than that as has time again Obama has sent our money and to support the Muslim Brotherhood et al.
really, President Obama brought down the Egyptian dictator Hosni Mubarak??

Just what exactly did he do? How did he oust Hosni? and here I thought it was the Egyptian Military.

And what exactly did President Obama do to oust Colonel Muammar Gaddafi? You know the terrorist dictator responsible for the bombing of Pan Am Flight 103, killing 270 people, 189 of whom were Americans.

I suppose you would rather see that terrorist still in power?

so what exactly did President Obama do?

so let me get this straight, I'm guessing you supported President Bush and the Iraq war. Part of the justification for that war was that Saddam used Chemical and biological weapons on his own people decades before we invaded Iraq.

Now you are against taking action against a brutal dictator who just recently used chemical nerve agents against his own people.

so as I understand it,
Taking out Saddam because he didn't have any WMD's but did decades in the past and used them on his own people OKAY
Aiding the rebels fighting a brutal dictator who had tons of WMD's and used them on his own people BAD

I wonder what the difference is.
Is there an obvious difference between President Bush and President Obsama?

Other than the obvious one that President Bush lied and doctored the intel on Iraq to get us into that fiasco.

Let me think, maybe a picture of the two side by side might reveal the difference?

aren't those the rebels that McCain and Graham have advocated for us to provide arms and munitions for months?

In fact both McCain and Graham have complained that we weren't supplying them enough, and wanted to give them MANPAC SAMs

Speaking of being a terrorist cheer leader, didn't your god, Ron Reagan provide arms, munitions and training to Osama bin Laden? Guess that makes him a terrorist cheerleader.

VIRGINIA BEACH
"It's like an engineered human stomach," explained J. Dano, a project manager for the Hampton Roads Sanitation District.
He was describing the region's largest waste-treatment plant, explaining the process known as anaerobic digestion.
As in a human stomach, it produces methane gas.
For years, HRSD has burned excess methane, or "flared it off," like an Olympic flame. While common, it's not an ideal solution, mainly because burning methane releases greenhouse gases into the atmosphere.
On Friday, HRSD officials unveiled a new, greener way to use methane at the Virginia Beach plant, tucked away between subdivisions and farm fields north of Sandbridge.
A series of cylindrical tanks and silver pipes remove corrosive elements and moisture from the gas, which in turn powers two large engines to make electricity.
The engines are expected to generate almost half the power used by the plant, and save HRSD about $650,000 a year, Dano said.
It's the largest operation of its kind in Virginia.
The $9.1 million project was partly funded by a $1.2 million state grant. Dano estimated that it will pay for itself over 20 years. HRSD rates will not change as a result of the project, he said.
HRSD was looking for a project that might qualify for federal stimulus money after the 2008 economic collapse, said Ted Henifin, HRSD's general manager. The idea was born.
Federal officials didn't select the project, but state environmental officials liked the idea and awarded it the grant.
Dano said the project shows there's more potential in treated waste than people might think.
"There's a lot of pure energy available in all that carbon if you can process it cost-effectively."
This is old technology and the reporting is typical of those who are clueless. Anaerobic digestion is used for the sludge produced by aerobic treatment of the wastewater. Anaerobic digesters must be heated, and the methane produced is barely sufficient to heat the digesters, let alone power the rest of the plant. Nothing wrong with this, but hardly rocket science.

Bill Maher not only got a laugh out of Republican flip-flopping during President Barack Obama’s administration on Friday, but he shared a new word for it with his Real Time panelists.
“It should be in the dictionary:‘Black-track,’” Maher explained, defining it as,“The act of changing one’s mind because President Obama has agreed with you. See also:‘Pulling a one-hatey,’ or the ‘Kenyan boomerang.’”
That led Maher to ask the panel whether Republicans really are opposed to a U.S. attack against Syria, or is it just a case of “black-tracking,” which would be corrected the next time a white president is elected.
“The ‘black-tracking’ part I don’t know about,” former Republican National Committee chair Michael Steele answered.“But I do know that there is — appropriately and rightly — that libertarian voice that has always been in the background like this that [is] now beginning to assert itself.”
Steele pointed out that there were also Republicans who grew disillusioned with Obama’s predecessor, George W. bush, in 2006 and 2007.
“I remember Ron Paul at debates, saying the kinds of things that I’m hearing out of mainstream Republicans now, and getting booed off the stage,” Maher noted.

"The act of changing one’s mind because President Obama has agreed with you."
kind of hard to pay attention to anything any of you have to say about foreign policy considering you were saying something different a month ago. we can start with: Saddam had chemical weapons so that was one of the reasons we needed to attack him! as one of many excuses the right tries to use to justify the worst hit we've ever taken as to how the world looks at us. at this point the only person accusing Obama of lying about Syria are a handful of right wing nutjobs, and not the rest of the world. Bush could only wish.
Baawwaaaahhh!!!

Let me break the news to you Reichtard. Nobody is shaking in their boots because of what you, or Bill Maher think.

As usual, the left distracts & blames others for their failures.
