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

Well, yeah, actually he did.
A plot that involved more airplanes targeting LAX as one of its targets was originating in the UK but was prevented with the combined efforts of the CIA and Scotland Yard with 19 jihadists arrested in one night.
You should find the documentary about this and watch it. It was as intense as a movie but reality.
That was when the Patriot Act listened only to international chatter. It's how this plot was disbanded.
Obama thinks the Tea Party is the enemy.
So long as you leave off 9/11 and iraq and Afghanistan.

Did I miss any other event you'd like to leave out of the equation son?

How about when you trash the military career of a US Congressman who lost multiple limbs in Vietnam to win his seat in Congress.
See Karl Rocv & George W Bush.
You must be talking about Max Cleland.
Max Cleland didn't lose limbs to win a seat in Congress.

And, Max Cleland cause his own injuries. He had boarded a helicopter to leave, then for some unexplained reason, he diceded to get out of the helicopter that was already lifting off. One of his own grenades somehow became unsecured and the pin came out, and he blew himself up. No enemy action. No other people involved. The area had been secured even before he arrived.

What did Max Cleland in was when he basically told the VFW and American Foreign Legion to kiss his ass, giving them a very public snub when he turned his wheel chair around and rolled away to avoid coming into contact with them and receiving a letter written by them to him.

Just like when he blew himself up, he did that to himself, too.

Very fascinating.

Tomb of the Unknown Soldier

1. How many steps does the guard take during his walk across the tomb of the Unknowns and why? 21 steps:

It alludes to the twenty-one gun salute which is the highest honor given any military or foreign dignitary.

2. How long does he hesitate after his about face to begin his return walk and why?
21 seconds for the same reason as answer number 1

3. Why are his gloves wet? His gloves are moistened to prevent his losing his grip on the rifle.

4. Does he carry his rifle on the same shoulder all the time and, if not, why not? He
carries the rifle on the shoulder away from the tomb. After his march across the path, he executes an about face and moves the rifle to the outside shoulder.

5. How often are the guards changed? Guards are changed every thirty minutes, twenty-four hours a day, 365 days a year.

6. What are the physical traits of the guard limited to? For a person to apply for guard duty at the tomb, he must be between 5' 10' and 6' 2' tall and his waist size cannot exceed 30.

They must commit 2 years of life to guard the tomb, live in a barracks under the tomb, and cannot drink any alcohol on or off duty for the rest of their lives. They cannot swear in public for the rest of their lives and cannot disgrace the uniform or the tomb in any way.

After two years, the guard is given a wreath pin that is worn on their lapel signifying they served as guard of the tomb. There are only 400 presently worn. The guard must obey these rules for the rest of their lives or give up the wreath pin.

The shoes are specially made with very thick soles to keep the heat and cold from their feet. There are metal heel plates that extend to the top of the shoe in order to make the loud click as they come to a halt.

There are no wrinkles, folds or lint on the uniform. Guards dress for duty in front of a full-length mirror.

The first six months of duty a guard cannot talk to anyone nor watch TV.

All off duty time is spent studying the 175 notable people laid to rest in Arlington National Cemetery.

A guard must memorize who they are and where they are interred. Among the notables are:

President Taft,
Joe Lewis {the boxer}
Medal of Honor winner Audie L. Murphy, the most decorated soldier of WWII and of Hollywood fame.

Every guard spends five hours a day getting his uniforms ready for guard duty..

ETERNAL REST GRANT THEM O LORD AND LET PERPETUAL LIGHT SHINE UPON THEM.

In 2003 as Hurricane Isabelle was approaching Washington, DC, our US Senate/House took 2 days off with anticipation of the storm. On the ABC evening news, it was reported that because of the dangers from the hurricane, the military
members assigned the duty of guarding the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier were given permission to suspend the assignment. They respectfully declined the offer, "No way,
Sir!" Soaked to the skin, marching in the pelting rain of a tropical storm, they said that
guarding the Tomb was not just an assignment, it was the highest honor that can be
afforded to a service person. The tomb has been patrolled continuously, 24/7, since 1930.

Panera Bread founder and CEO Ron Shaich usually doesn’t do his own shopping. But Saturday, the millionaire found himself looking for cheap groceries in Dorchester, Mass., a historically-poor neighborhood in Boston, he wrote in a LinkedIn post documenting a week of living on the equivalent of food stamps.
“[W]hat began as mild sense of uneasiness ahead of the shopping trip, graduated to outright worry once I began shopping,” he wrote.“After just a few minutes walking the aisles of the store, the concern set in that I may not be able to sustain myself for the next seven days. Thirty one dollars and fifty cents, the weekly budget, didn’t feel so insignificant until I actually started filling – and editing – what was ultimately a barren shopping cart.”
As part of Hunger Action Month, Shaich said he is eating on $4.50 a day, the average daily benefit per person provided by the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program. Policy makers, including 26 members of Congress, have embraced the SNAP challenge as a way to demonstrate the difficulty of living with food insecurity.
Panera Bread has been experimenting with pay-what-you-can cafes in economically-difficult cities such as St. Louis and Detroit. The cafes have no set prices, only suggested donations. The company is testing the concept in other markets with a pay-what-you-can item: turkey chili in a bread bowl.
I guess in liberal speak "Supplemental" means give all you want to eat for free. Meanwhile, dia-obesity is a major health problem in minority communities.

You never told us why every Democrat in Washington hates ObamaKare.
And, you didn't tell us why the AFL-CIO should be exempted from ObamaKare.

And, what on Earth gives the president the authority to exempt anyone from the law? Does the president have the authority to write his own laws?

If every Democrats in Washington hates ObamaKare, why don't they repeal it?

Obama is weak because he's on the wrong side. The world is against Al Qaeda. That's why the world gave Obama a vote of no confidence.
If Obama wasn't part of the Islamist terrorist network, the world would have more confidence in him.
Besides, the entire world knows Obama is just a puppet. Now, what country is going to follow a puppet?
lol!... as putin bows to him.

Now, why are we running an Al Qaeda terrorist training camp in Jordan? Who's idea is that?
And, what "conservatives" want us to arm Al Qaeda?

Our only ally in Syria is Al Qaeda.

Obama's just turned a news alert about the naval shootings into a self glorifying ad of himself. Which means it's really all about his bloated ego and not the people who just died. The worthless azz opportunist.

BTW, don't let him near your puppy if he looks hungry. ;)
