Barack Obama, our next President

"Of course it's about oil; we can't really deny that," said Gen. John Abizaid, former head of U.S. Central Command and Military Operations in Iraq, in 2007. Former Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan agreed, writing in his memoir, "I am saddened that it is politically inconvenient to acknowledge what everyone knows: the Iraq war is largely about oil." Then-Sen. and now Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel said the same in 2007: "People say we're not fighting for oil. Of course we are."

Obama Administration Promotes Use of Child Soldiers

In 2008, President Bush signed the Child Soldiers Prevention Act into law. This law provides protection for children across the globe by preventing the United States government from providing military aid to nations which utilize child soldiers.

Barack Obama has chosen to evade the 2008 law. Obama has effectively placed his own administration above the law in allowing military aid to Chad, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Sudan and Yemen.

Jo Becker, the Children’s Rights Advocacy Director for Human Rights Watch, writes “Americans don’t want their tax money used to put weapons into the hands of children. Cutting off US military assistance to countries using child soldiers should make their governments think twice about exploiting children for warfare.”

The six nations currently identified as using child soldiers are Burma, Chad, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Somalia, Sudan, and Yemen. The U.S. does not provide military aid to the brutal dictatorship currently ruling Burma. This means that, out of five nations which should not receive military aid from the United States taxpayers, the Obama administration has unilaterally decided to grant four wavers. Only Somalia is being sanctioned for the use of child soldiers — and the government of Somalia is fighting a losing war against Islamist insurgents who are allied with Al Qaeda.

So where does that leave the United States? Do we support the use of children in war or do we oppose it? Is training child soldiers in Africa a legitimate use of U.S. taxpayer funds? Do we prefer to put a barely trained 10yr old African child on the front lines, or a well trained 18yr old American Marine? More importantly, do we live under the rule of law or under the rule of men? Why do we bother having laws at all if we allow presidents to simply make up the rules for their own convenience?http://www.fortlib erty.org/obama-administration- promotes-use-of-child-soldiers .html

n 1998, Kenneth Derr, then CEO of Chevron, said, "Iraq possesses huge reserves of oil and gas-reserves I'd love Chevron to have access to." Today it does.

In 2000, Big Oil, including Exxon, Chevron, BP and Shell, spent more money to get fellow oilmen Bush and Cheney into office than they had spent on any previous election. Just over a week into Bush's first term, their efforts paid off when the National Energy Policy Development Group, chaired by Cheney, was formed, bringing the administration and the oil companies together to plot our collective energy future. In March, the task force reviewed lists and maps outlining Iraq's entire oil productive capacity.

Planning for a military invasion was soon under way. Bush's first Treasury secretary, Paul O'Neill, said in 2004, "Already by February (2001), the talk was mostly about logistics. Not the why (to invade Iraq), but the how and how quickly."

In its final report in May 2001 (PDF), the task force argued that Middle Eastern countries should be urged "to open up areas of their energy sectors to foreign investment." This is precisely what has been achieved in Iraq.

It's not a matter of supporting and agreeing with the opposition once you're in power, it's knowing how to compromise.
That hasn't happened since 2009.
All Hail Ronald Reagan!!!!!

Every Republican Presidential candidate must take the journey to vist Reagan's grave & bow down in reverence.

Consider this.

If the Democrats who ran Congress under Reagan acted like the Republicans under Obama, Reagan would have done NOTHING.

Vladimir Putin: Say what now?!

There are so many “Say what now?!”-worthy things in Vladimir Putin’s op-ed (read surreal lecture) in the New York Times today I don’t know where to begin.

The Russian president is very concerned about the credibility of the United Nations.

No one wants the United Nations to suffer the fate of the League of Nations, which collapsed because it lacked real leverage. This is possible if influential countries bypass the United Nations and take military action without Security Council authorization.

So, we’re supposed to ignore all those times Russia used its powerful veto on the U.N. Security Council to stall a solution to the Syrian civil war and undermine the effectiveness of the international body. For instance, Russia (with an assist from China) in July 2012 blocked a Security Council measure to impose sanctions against Syrian dictator and Russia patron Bashar al-Assad. And let’s not forget that just this week, Russia cancelled an emergency Security Council meeting it called to discuss the last-minute proposal to put Syria’s chemical weapons under international control.

The Russian president is a true frenemy.

My working and personal relationship with President Obama is marked by growing trust.

His definitions of “relationship” and “trust” must be loose. Putin’s reelection campaign last year was so anti-American, Obama waited several days to place the customary congratulatory call. Then, the Russian leader bailed on the G-8 summit being held at Camp David. Throw in granting asylum to American security-secrets-leaker Edward Snowden and you’d be hard pressed to see the “growing trust” in the “relationship” between Putin and Obama.

But it was the conclusion of the Russian president’s op-ed that left me slack-jawed.

We are all different, but when we ask for the Lord’s blessings, we must not forget that God created us equal.

There should have been an asterisk at the end of Putin’s piece. God created us equal — unless you’re gay or lesbian. Putin’s ban on “propaganda of nontraditional sexual relations” is so broad that the lives of gay Russians and gay tourists in Russia have been deemed illegal. Putin banned the adoption of Russian children by same-sex couples in foreign countries. This also applies to unmarried, straight couples and single adults from nations that recognize marriage equality.

Given all this, Putin’s surreal lecture of the United States and our president is a bit much.

<quoted text>So easy for you to talk your shit since you work for an industry that has no regulations on the amount it can charge for its product.

There was a time in America before Reagan that a person could have a middle class life working for a company. Those days have pasted and those jobs are few. The Rich sent the middle class jobs to China to pay slave girls .30 cents an hour to produce their product. Now I know you think .30 cents an hour is fair but losing over 30,000 companies in the past 20 years has destroyed the nation.
Bullshit. There are many industries in the United States, all of which provide well-paying careers for anyone who will work.

What you want is for us to make all the sacrifices to be successful, and give money to those who won't make any sacrifices and won't work.

I'll tell you how to avoid being poor:

1) Don't drop out of school.
2) Study while you're in school.
3) Don't have children before you're married.
4) Get a job and show up for work every day on time.
5) Become a student of your profession.

If you do the above things, you will succeed in what used to be the United States.

Suppose you don't do the above things, and you make many bad decisions. Then, you find yourself over 30 and not qualified for anything.
Do 4 and 5. You won't be poor.

Work or starve, dumbass. No free rides. Thank God there is an economy in the United States where people who would be otherwise useless and starve can actually do menial work and get a minimum wage.

"How bad has 2013 been for Barack Obama? Let us count the ways.In the first year of his second term, the president has failed on virtually every front. He put his prestige on the line to pass federal gun-control legislation–and lost. He made climate change a central part of his inaugural address–and nothing has happened. The president went head-to-head with Republicans on sequestration–and he failed. He’s been forced to delay implementation of the employer mandate, a key feature of the Affordable Care Act. ObamaCare is more unpopular than ever, and it’s turning out to be a "train wreck" (to quote Democratic Senator Max Baucus) in practice. The most recent jobs report was the worst in a year, with the Obama recovery already qualifying as a historically weak one. Immigration reform is going nowhere. And then there’s Syria, which has turned out to be an epic disaster.(To be sure, Mr. Obama’s Middle East failures go well beyond Syria–but Syria is the most conspicuous failure right now)."
Thank you for proving how Republican obstructionism is killing this country.
