Deboning a Dead Baby:

To be honest I just spring for the butcher to do it but, if you prefer everything in your kitchen to be homemade, just keep the little tykes alive until you intend to use them, then PUT them, one at a time, into a medium burlap bag and swing them around your head a few dozen times like this...(demonstrates...) It should make a sound like a Didgeridoo if you're doing it right....When you can smell the strong odor of split peas, take the bag and rest it on the counter, then bash it with a meat tenderizer like this...(bashes actively with a meat tenderizer...) Ok, that should about do it... now just... chop up your dead baby and the bones will literally fall out as you go!

President Obama offered brief, stern-sounding remarks on Friday afternoon; within minutes, he retreated to a DNC party where HE OFFICIALLY DELCARED HAPPY HOUR OPEN. Really.

Putin responded to this show of American seriousness by asking the upper chamber of Russia's parliament to authorize military force in Ukraine. Following a series of nationalistic speeches -- many of which denounced the United States -- the resolution passed unanimously, with legislators belting out the Russian national anthem.

On Saturday, OBAMA SKIPPED HIS TEAM'S NATIONAL SECURITY BRIEFING ON THE GROWING CRISIS, opting for briefings from Susan Rice interspersed between phone calls with foreign leaders. The White House defensively insisted that Obama's absence from the meeting was "not unusual."

One of his conversations was with Vladimir Putin, in which the leader of the free world expressed "deep concerns," and called on Russia's autocratic leader to pull back his troops.

Putin made it perfectly clear that he "reserves the right" to do precisely the opposite:

Vladimir Putin stressed that in case of any further spread of violence to Eastern Ukraine and Crimea, Russia retains the right to protect its interests and the Russian-speaking population of those areas.

Obama's Ukraine stumble isn't an isolated incident, the Post piece explains:

The position Obama is in, confronting a brazenly defiant Russia and with few ways to meaningfully enforce his threat, has been years in the making.

It is THE PRODUCT OF OBAMA'S RECORD IN OFFICE and of the way he understands the period in which he is governing, at home and abroad.

At the core of his quandary is the question that has arisen in White House debates over the Afghan withdrawal, the intervention in Libya and the conflict in Syria — how to end more than a dozen years of American war and maintain a credible military threat to protect U.S. interests.

THE SIGNAL OBAMA HAS SENT — popular among his domestic political base, unsettling at times to U.S. allies — has been one of deep reluctance to use the heavily burdened American military, even when doing so would meet the criteria he has laid out...

But Obama’s rejection of U.S. military involvement in Syria’s civil war, in which 140,000 people have died since he first called on President Bashar al-Assad to step down, is the leading example of his second term.

So, too, is THE PENTAGON BUDGET PROPOSAL outlined this past week that would cut the size of the army to pre-2001 levels.

Inside the West Wing, there are two certainties that color any debate over intervention: that the country is exhausted by war and that the end of the longest of its post-Sept. 11 conflicts is less than a year away.

Together they present a high bar for the use of military force. Ukraine has challenged administration officials — and Obama’s assessment of the world — again.

The difference between Democrats and Republicans dumbass is that we opposed the law because it was wrong and discriminatory. Republicans opposed it because they were afraid it would hurt business.
Democrats right vs. wrong.
Republicans profit vs. loss.
And just who wrote this inane, piece of crap legislation in the first place? It was extreme right wing religio- fascists just like you.
You're an idiot Carol!
The original Religious Freedom Restoration Act passed in the US House of Representatives and the US Senate 97 to 3 before being signed into law by then-President Bill Clinton in 1993.

Arizona's bill clarified a few points in the already existing law to further protect religious freedoms in light of the furor by progressive liberals over the issue of gay marriage.

Eleven constitutional scholars said the Arizona law had been “egregiously misrepresented by many of its critics” and though not all supported the legislation, in the letter they stated, "all of us believe that many criticisms of the Arizona law are deeply misleading.”.

The federal government and 18 states have Religious Freedom Restoration Acts on their books. More than 12 other states have interpreted their state constitutions to provide similar protections to religious individuals.

This is just another progressive liberal/communistic tactic to control the people using gay marriage as a tool.

I love it when you right whiners blame Obama for Bush's quagmire wars.
Obama was not beaten in Libya.
The US had nothing to do with the Ukraine situation.
I know you have nothing when you continually have to make up sh*t to blame Obama for.

Obama's focus has always been on advancing a liberal domestic policy agenda, with foreign policy simmering on the back-burner.

This administration has seemed determined to present itself as the anti-Bush, exceedingly hesitant to exercise American hard power, and focused on restoring America's image in the world by adopting a more thoughtful global posture.

One of the centerpieces of this "smart power" approach was a "reset" in US-Russo relations, A POLICY THAT LIES IN TATTERS.

America has sacrificed much in exchange for a parade of Russian treachery, vis-a-vis Syria, Snowden and now Ukraine.

The "reset" has clearly benefited the Kremlin. What, if anything, has the US gained? For a sense of how cynical and calculating

Putin has been in advancing his interests while stifling ours, re-read his New York Times op-ed on Syria, published on September 11 of last year.

As OBAMA PONDERED strikes against the Moscow-backed and -armed Assad regime, Putin averred that military action requires "consensus" within the international community. That doctrine of restraint and consensus plainly didn't apply to Russia when it invaded Georgia, however, and it's been discarded again in Crimea.

Well, you know, old fellow, I admit the anti-Obama stuff is a little grating sometimes, but for some reason I've never been concerned about your service record? Perhaps that's because I don't care about your service record and feel that if you wanted to be in the Army or whatever while the rest of us were smoking vast fields of questionable weed, taking LSD by the bucketload and trying to visit in a friendly fashion with every lovely vagina in America before our twentieth birthdays, then you should be allowed to take credit for it. I do not understand why this is such a big deal? At least it's not like KKKraig who claimed to have fought in a police action (we lost again, incidentally..) that was already over by the time he got there. You can be a general if you please, knock yourself out, just remember not to criticize me for not being one and don't bother trying to get me to clean up the barracks.

<quoted text>Most Americans don't know the Arizona bill that was just vetoed is already a federal law signed by former President Bill Clinton. The Arizona bill just clarified a few points in the already existing law to keep government out of one's personal religious beliefs by coercing businesses to provide specific services such as baking a cake or photographing gay weddings.

Gay marriage has just become a loophole for progressive liberals to deny some people their religious freedoms beginning in Arizona even though the protection of religious beliefs is already a federal law.

Ironically, there are cases where atheists have denied services to Christians for religious events. Guess they don't have that freedom anymore either.

The same countries who once scoffed at Bush are now wishing they had a U.S. president with some substance who at least stood for something to scoff at now. No one is even paying attention to Obama. There's nothing to scoff at. There's no "there" there.
The economy wasn't nearly as bad in 2007 as it is now and certainly not unemployment.
If only the Democrats had joined the Republicans who wanted to rein in Fannie and Freddie while there was still time...when Bush tried to warn them. Both sides are at fault to some degree but Democrats, by far, put up the most resistance.
Ignorance breeds stupidity. I really wish you would educate yourself instead of relying on Faux News as your source in developing your opinions. It's sad.

I know this is in direct contradiction to your Marxist communist indoctrination that teaches you the government owns everything.
Goddam communists. Having a communist government is like giving yourself cancer. Only an idiot would do that.
So you have no problem with American oil companies selling off America's future to the highest bidder? Since when did our freely elected government become communist?
Your kind won't be happy until all American workers are at the same wages as the .30/hr are in China. After all capitalism has brought us to the point of never in US history has the worker received less percentage of company profit in pay.
