that would be you, Dweeb.
It's your 'short man' syndrome.
(down here..........look at me..........it's Dweeb, Mama!!)
You're running away again.
The Constitution says the President cannot write his own laws, moron. Now, who are you going to believe, the Constitution or RINOs who want amnesty but can't do it because it will be suicide for them?
I'd believe what's written in the Constitution. Perhaps you, and Obama, too, should read it at least once in your lives.
The Constitution does not give the President the authority to grant amnesty to any person or group of people violating the law.
Please tell us why the Democrats are telling the country Obama plans to violate the Constitution and write his own immigration law this month.
You do realize that the difference between the United States of America and a dictatorship is, here in the United States of America the people write the laws, and in a dictatorship the head of state writes the laws and can select people to grant amnesty to after they violated the law, right?
So, tell us why the Democrats are telling the Country Obama will write his own immigration law this month. What's wrong with the people writing the laws?
You forgot to tell us why the Democrats have 2,700 tanks in the DHS. What's the plan? Do you think Obama will need those 2,700 tanks in the DHS to declare his dictatorship?

The ugly collusion between ‘religious faith’ and bigotry
Remember last year when a pastor of an NC church got into trouble because he said gays should be put behind an electrified fence. Even with all of the backlash, there was a few who stood behind him because according to them,“the Bible says homosexuality is wrong.”
But the anger was due to the fact that this man said lgbts should be placed behind an electrified fence like they were cattle to be abused and killed off. Still,the pastor had a loyal bunch who continued to justify his words by claiming that he were merely preaching in accordance to his “faith.”
Never mind that his faith encompassed genocide.
Decades before that in the 1970s was Anita Bryant and her opposition to the pro-gay ordinance in a Florida county. She said as a Christian, she couldn’t support such an ordinance. But she wasn’t content on leaving her opposition rooted in her faith. She snuck in a little nugget. According to her, since gays can’t reproduce, we supposedly recruit children.
She was able to pull off that lie by reminding folks of her “Christian values.”
Years after Bryant came a plethora of anti-gay and supposed morality groups standing against lgbt equality. Using junk science, discredited sources, venomous accusations and name-calling, and out-and-out lies, they claimed to oppose lgbt equality because supposedly because it is a “public health menace.”
There is an ugly collusion between religious belief and bigotry which we don’t talk about and it didn’t begin with the lgbt community. It wasn’t that long ago when religious belief and faith was used to justify slavery, segregation, and Anti-Semitism on a large scale. Sadly, the lgbt community seems to be the last bastion where it is okay to justify demonizing people under the guise of “adhering to one’s faith.”
We need to call out the fact that just because your “faith” says that homosexuality is a sin is no justification to tack on lies geared to demonize the lgbt community. It’s no justification to perform a humiliating psychological dissection on lgbts by saying things like “I don’t hate you as a person, just what you do.” It’s not about your alleged hate,but your proud display of your ignorance. And it is certainly no justification to judge lgbts based on your view of the Bible and play the victim when you are called out for it.
Folks who do these things always seem to think that they own the word “Christianity” and everyone else is beholden to their interpretation. They forget that many lgbts are also Christians and bring up good points when they lay out their case in proving that God doesn’t condemn them for being who they are.
But as it is, those who are so damn eager to speak against the so-called sin of homosexuality would be best to remember the sin of lying, speaking ill of one’s brother, or bearing false witness.
More often than not, it applies better to their situations.""

But how do you feel about the new consensus that 16.5 million in the middle class suburbs are now living below the poverty line?(The poverty line being defined as a family of four making $23,492 or less.) It was reported on MSN today.
Are you among the liberals who've been screaming the economy is on fire?
Yeah, and the millions who lost their home equity nest eggs beginning in 2005 as the George W Bush catastrophe began to unwind the worlds financial industries.

You continually run away from the issue. The Democrats are saying Obama will declare himself dictator this month and start writing his own laws. The Constitution does not give the President to give amnesty to anyone in violation of a law. The Constitution commands the President "take care the laws are faithfully enforced". Obama says he's going to declare himself dictator and write his own immigration law.
So, if there is a significant opposition to Obama declaring a dictatorship, do you think Obama will order the DHS to use those 2,700 tanks they have to enforce the dictatorship?
Do you think Americans will give up the Constitution after Obama declares himself dictator?
I think you should ask President Rmoney.

You're that crazy.

BTW, Dave proved you were lying about the 2700 tanks. But I already knew you were lying. All you do is lie.

Climate Change Deemed Growing Security Threat by Military Researchers
By CORAL DAVENPORTMAY 13, 2014
WASHINGTON — The accelerating rate of climate change poses a severe risk to national security and acts as a catalyst for global political conflict, a report published Tuesday by a leading government-funded military research organization concluded.
The CNA Corporation Military Advisory Board found that climate change-induced drought in the Middle East and Africa is leading to conflicts over food and water and escalating longstanding regional and ethnic tensions into violent clashes. The report also found that rising sea levels are putting people and food supplies in vulnerable coastal regions like eastern India, Bangladesh and the Mekong Delta in Vietnam at risk and could lead to a new wave of refugees.
In addition, the report predicted that an increase in catastrophic weather events around the world will create more demand for American troops, even as flooding and extreme weather events at home could damage naval ports and military bases.
In an interview, Secretary of State John Kerry signaled that the report’s findings would influence American foreign policy.
“Tribes are killing each other over water today,” Mr. Kerry said.“Think of what happens if you have massive dislocation, or the drying up of the waters of the Nile, of the major rivers in China and India. The intelligence community takes it seriously, and it’s translated into action.”
Mr. Kerry, who plans to deliver a major speech this summer on the links between climate change and national security, said his remarks would also be aimed at building political support for President Obama’s climate change agenda, including a new regulation to cut pollution from coal-fired power plants that the administration will introduce in June.

Really? I think it's more because Obama and the Democrats joined Al Qaeda and the rest of the Islamist terrorists working for the Muslim Brotherhood, and now they are so big and powerful they can invade countries and take over them.
If you recall, before Obama was named President, the only visible existence of Al Qaeda was in the caves Bush had them holed up in. After a few years of Obama as President, they were able to invade countries and fight a full scale war.
Only an idiot doesn't know the two events are directly related.

Correct?
If anyone knows the progressive liberal mentality to verify this, it would be you.
(A misplaced bleeding heart to condone coercion is actually wrong - in case you're still confused about that.)
FACT: Impoverished cities that have been under democrat control for decades are ignored by the lame stream media.

GOP Congressman Accuses Democrats Of Waging A 'War On Whites'

""Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Ala.) doesn't think that the hardline stance Republicans have taken on immigration could hurt the party’s standing with Hispanic voters. Instead, he thinks Democrats are hurting their prospects with white voters.

“This is a part of the war on whites that’s being launched by the Democratic Party. And the way in which they’re launching this war is by claiming that whites hate everybody else,” he said during an interview Monday with conservative radio host Laura Ingraham. "It's part of the strategy that Barack Obama implemented in 2008, continued in 2012, where he divides us all on race, on sex, greed, envy, class warfare, all those kinds of things. Well that’s not true.”

Brooks was responding to comments made by National Journal's Ron Fournier, who told Fox News host Chris Wallace on Sunday that "the fastest growing voting bloc in this country thinks the Republican Party hates them. This party, your party, cannot be the party of the future beyond November if you’re seen as the party of white people.”""
