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

Note the part where this has no effect of the ACA panned savings.
The cuts to Medicare Advantage were the prime funding mechanism for ObamaKKKare.

So,you are saying Bush was wrong to invade Afghanistan.
Bin Laden's death hurt their leadership & fund raising efforts.
Cleaning out the terrorist training camps in Afghanistan was the correct thing to do. The war should have ended with that.

So where are the wmd's that bushie boy said were there?
And it would appear your OPINION is trumped by the facts... as usual!
"... SPIEGEL: The German government was convinced that "Curveball" would not be used in the now famous presentation that then US Secretary of State Colin Powell gave in 2003 before the United Nations Security Council.
Drumheller: I had assured my German friends that it wouldn't be in the speech. I really thought that I had put it to bed. I had warned the CIA deputy John McLaughlin that this case could be fabricated. The night before the speech, then CIA director George Tenet called me at home. I said: "Hey Boss, be careful with that German report. It's supposed to be taken out. There are a lot of problems with that." He said: "Yeah, yeah. Right. Dont worry about that."
SPIEGEL: But it turned out to be the centerpiece in Powell’s presentation -- and nobody had told him about the doubts.
Drumheller: I turned on the TV in my office, and there it was. So the first thing I thought, having worked in the government all my life, was that we probably gave Powell the wrong speech. We checked our files and found out that they had just ignored it.
SPIEGEL: So the White House just ignored the fact that the whole story might have been untrue?
Drumheller: The policy was set. The war in Iraq was coming and they were looking for intelligence to fit into the policy. Right before the war, I said to a very senior CIA officer: "You guys must have something else," because you always think it's the CIA. "There is some secret thing I don`t know." He said: "No. But when we get to Baghdad, we are going to find warehouses full of stuff. Nobody is going to remember all of this."..."
You're such an easy shill son!
The WMD's were found, some in Iraq and some in Syria, just as Saddam's general said.

You turn the other cheek.
Believe that's only when one is personally offended by another. Don't think it applies when the offender is beheading your family.

Many battles were fought in biblical days for the sake of good overcoming evil. There is no freedom or hope but despair, oppression and fear when evil prevails. Fighting battles for the sake of mankind is the right thing to do.

However, these days, evil has taken such a stronghold, it's going to take the entire civilized world to come together to snuff it out. The military might of the U.S. and the UK are the backbone but the willingness of countries like France and the rest of the civilized world who want to eradicate this present-day scourge seems to be our only hope.

Russia doesn't even want al Qaeda to win this battle. We again have a mutual enemy which is much more threatening than Hitler. They have their own motives for wiping out radical Islam but, in this case, the end again justifies the means.

(Forgive the bloviating - just feel strongly about this.)

<quoted text> The fire departments in this area will not enter a house unless there is a claim of someone being inside. Even then the degree of the fire will still cause them to not enter. They just pull up outside, blow out the windows with 1000 gallon a minute hoses, and then go in afterwards to put out the embers. All wood truss commercial buildings have a big 'T' on the door. They lost a couple of guys some years ago down the street. If that 'T' is on the door they aren't going inside.
We need to question the deaths of those fighting forest fires, such as in Arizona. Many people believe that the effort should be made to save structures, but otherwise forest fires should be allowed to burn themselves out. In fact, that is exactly the practice on the National Park Service.

In the case of the World Trade Center, those on the upper floors could not be saved and the lives of the firefighters were lost needlessly. The culture of dashing into burning buildings without regard to personal safety is brave, but foolish.

Some old news lol Obamacare Would Still Leave U.S. Last in Developed World

Forty-eight million Americans are still without health insurance, and 48,000 of them die every year due to inadequate care, said Dr. David Himmelstein, of Physicians for a National Health Plan.“Billions and billions are drained out of the health care system by greedy insurance companies whose interest is in denying people care,” said Himmelstein, whose organization favors a Medicaid-for-All system.“Even if Obamacare works as planned, we’re still going to have 31 million people who won’t have coverage,” which means the U.S. health care system will remain “the worst in the developed world.”

The Incredibly Shrinking Welfare State

The remnants of the federal welfare program, Temporary Assistance to Needy Families,“needs to be made more accessible,” said Timothy Casey, senior attorney for Legal Momentum.“Right now, two out of three families and children who are eligible don’t get any benefits.” Moreover,“benefits in every state are far below the official poverty level – typically less than half,” said Casey. Legal Momentum was formerly known as the NOW Legal Defense and Education Fund.

U.S. Protects Purveyors of Genocide in Congo

Washington refuses to bring real pressures on Rwanda to halt its 17-year war and occupation of the eastern Congo, the “deadliest conflict in the world since World War Two, in which millions of Congolese have lost their lives,” said Maurice Carney, executive director of Friends of Congo.“When you compare it to the way the U.S. has acted against Zimbabwe, or the way it’s been beating the war drums against Syria, the U.S. hasn’t brought substantial weight, whatsoever,” against its ally, Rwanda, said Carney.

Kenyans Say No to International Criminal Court

Both houses of Kenya’s parliament voted to sever ties with the International Criminal Court, which had previously indicted Uhuru Kenyatta and William Ruto, the current president and deputy president of the country.“They had and election, and one of the major aspects of the campaign was, We can handle our problems ourselves and we don’t need the ICC,” said John Philpot, a Canadian attorney and expert on international criminal law who has defended clients before the ICC. Parliament’s action “was a good step,” said Philpot,“because the ICC is the right hand of military/political intervention” and only prosecutes Africans.
