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

Stony Brook Hospital rejects health exchange plans
February 4, 2014

Stony Brook University Hospital, Suffolk's only academic medical center, is not taking any of the eight plans offered in the county on New York's health insurance exchange, citing reimbursement rates that are too low to be acceptable.

No hospital on Long Island appears to take all of the exchange plans, but Stony Brook seems to be the only one not accepting any. At least one other academic medical center and safety net hospital in the region, Westchester Medical Center, also is not taking any exchange plans, citing the same reason....

Perhaps you can get Obama to explain to Congress why his agencies need 2 billion rounds of ammunition.
By the way, Obama just isseued another RFQ for a massive ammunition procurement. This time, it's for one hundred and forty thousand 168 gr .308 Win match-grade sniper rounds for the DHS.
What does the DHS need with 140 thousand rounds of sniper ammunition?
What does the DHS need with 2 billion rounds of other ammunition?
Who does Obama plan to go to war with?
The Great DHS Ammunition Stockpile Myth

There are dozens of articles hyping government purchases of ammunition over the last nine months. After spending weeks researching this topic, this is a collection of commonly held myths that are based more on panic than fact.

No snow on the Gulf Coast.

Interesting you bring this up. Record snowfall this winter. Assuming we're not entering another ice age, this snow will melt.

What is the African village chief pretending to be President of the United States doing to prepare for the floods the village idiot can tell you are coming?

I see a lot of photo ops for Democrat idiots flying in helicopters across flooded homes everyone in the country knows will flood this spring trying to save their elitist DC ass.

You never told us why the DHS needs 140 thousand rounds of sniper ammunition on top of the 2 billion rounds Obama's agencies previously procured.
Do you think Obama is spending so much money on preparing for a war against the American people that there won't be any money to help the flood victims any idiot can tell you there will be this spring?

What is Obama doing to prepare for the certain floods this spring?

Government controlling the people is a radical ideology. Unless you live in Cuba or Russia.

The government is supposed to fear us, remember? Otherwise, according to Thomas Jefferson, we have tyranny rather than liberty.

And it's complacency among the people who allow it to happen. Your kind of complacency.

First of all, dumbf*cjk, hollow point ammunition is not banned by the Geneva Convention. It is banned by an earlier Hague Convention of 1899.
That ban was only for warfare.
Now, don't you feel like a dumbass.
And really,it's a long term contract covering 4-5 years. The Contract calls for a minimum purchase amount and also has a maximum purchase amount. So it may or may not purchase all of it.
Bulk purchasing to save money ad you freaking jackwagons run screaming through the streets " OMG OMG OMG"
More proof right whiners are just plain dumber than sh*t.
The Geneva Convention adopted that ban, moron.
The Geneva Convention applies only to warfare, moron.
The RFQ was for 140 thousand rounds. Subsequent RFQs may and can be issued to cover your 4-5 year span.
If you don't feel like an idiot now, it's because you are one.

You never answered this question.
Now, why does Obama need 140 thousand rounds of sniper ammunition for the DHS?

When President Barack Obama took an unplanned stop on the tour of Thomas Jefferson’s home Monday, he joked to French President Francois Hollande,“That’s the good thing as a president -- I can do whatever I want.” The remark made headlines because Obama’s critics have long said he acts like he really believes that.
Among the most recent examples, they cite Obama’s State of the Union declaration that he plans to take policy actions “with or without Congress”-- and this week’s White House announcement that it is delaying another key deadline in the health care law Congress passed in 2010.
Americans say not so fast, Mr. President.
According to a just-released Fox News national poll, most voters don’t think the country’s system of government was designed for the president to act unilaterally, and a majority disapproves of Obama bypassing Congress.
Click here for the poll results.
The new poll finds that 74 percent think the president using executive orders to get around Congress is not how things are supposed to work in our country. That includes 54 percent of Democrats.
Large majorities of independents (80 percent) and Republicans (93 percent) believe it goes against our system for the president to act independently to advance his policies.
Even when asked to set aside their views on how the government is supposed to work, by a wide 60-37 percent margin voters still disapprove of Obama going around Congress.
Almost all Republicans disapprove of Obama acting without lawmakers (90 percent), as do two-thirds of independents (66 percent).
Democrats approve by a 66-31 percent margin.
Overall, about one voter in five approves of Obama's use of executive orders even though they don’t believe it’s the way things are supposed to work.
The Fox News poll is based on landline and cell phone interviews with 1,006 randomly chosen registered voters nationwide and was conducted under the joint direction of Anderson Robbins Research (D) and Shaw & Company Research (R) from February 9-11, 2014. The full poll has a margin of sampling error of plus or minus three percentage points.
Flacktard thinks there weren't executive orders prior to Jan 20, 2009.

Another case of convenient right whiner memory loss.

Obama said he do what he can through executive action if your Hate-America Republicans continue to block everything to help this country recover.

We need help. We need jobs. We need to fix our infrastructure. If the Republicans refuse to help & continue to block Congress, then Hell yes. I hope Obama does whatever he can to help this country.

According to the Constitution, there are no exemptions to a law. Everyone in the country is subjected to the same law. That's the only reason anyone can say we have equality, you moron.
The President, nor anyone else, can rewrite any law. According to the law, the only way a law can be changed is by a subsequent law.
The United States government is being run like a village in the middle of Africa.
there have always been exceptions to laws.

and again, by your own description of the african villages, you show that your own statement is incorrect.

Only churches who preach a political agenda from the pulpit - Reverend Wright's Trinity Unity Church of Christ in Chicago would be the perfect example.

Obama should tax his own church first. But that would be the only church exempted in Obama's and your world.

So we went from '' except the better hospitals aren't participating''. They have to travel far to a hospital where it is dangerous to even get out of your car, and the orderlies are likely to have both criminal records and multiple baby mamas'' to ....''Stony Brook Hospital rejects health exchange plans''. And left this out...''Most Island hospitals, however, are taking some exchange plans''......"We are still in negotiation with some of the plans and have not reached agreement with them," said Dr. Reuven Pasternak, Stony Brook's CEO.

... gaaaawwd dammmmnnnn. You are an idiot.

A "loophole" is not an exemption. Do we really need to explain that to you?

An exemption is Obama exempting the anyone or anything from a law, thus violating the law. Or, Harry Reid exempting his staff from ObamaKare in violation of the law.

Now, why does the DHS need 140 thousand rounds of sniper ammunition on top of the billion rounds of ammunition outlawed by the Geneva Convention they already procured?
