Hi Homer,
I was waiting for a parking spot at a store; I had turned around and came up behind the car with my blinker on and waited. They pulled out, I pulled in. Right beside me a man pulled in and started screaming at me that I took his spot! I said, no, that's not true, I had been waiting for it with my signal on. Well, he came into the store and started yelling at me "Yeah, that's right, you always get your way as usual, blah, blah, blah" I figured he was a dittohead with a gun so I just walked away. They're driving around in rages, you never know who is packing heat, looking for a fight.
According to Rush, rightwing radio, Fox News, and John Galt, if he's an angry white guy he is entitled to that spot.

'White House: That round of golf after the Foley video was released doesn’t show the depth of Obama’s grief
posted at 11:21 am on August 22, 2014
'Many factors conspired to make O’s golf outing seem distasteful — the brutality of the Foley video, the fact that David Cameron quit his own vacation in response to it, the contradiction in Obama’s vowing to be “relentless” against ISIS before proceeding immediately to the first hole.
But the coda to the video showing Sotloff being menaced was the coup de grace politically, I think.
Obama shouldn’t (and won’t) give in to ISIS’s demands to stop the bombing in order to spare Sotloff’s life but “fore” is not the proper response when you’re given an ultimatum that involves a man’s head being sawed off.
And of course it reinforced the perception that this guy simply doesn’t much like his job anymore.
If watching jihadis decapitate an American citizen isn’t enough to interrupt your recreation, what is?
But listen: Precisely because there are SO MANY LOW-INFORMATION VOTERS OUT THERE.
I think he’s dead right in how he’s calculated the cost/benefit in all of this. Namely, there’s NO COST.
MOST PEOPLE WON'T CARE, some who do will forget about it literally tomorrow, and the people who’ll remember it forever were stalwart Obama critics in the first place.
Have a look at his job approval ratings over the past two weeks or so if you doubt me.
Conservatives have been hammering him for seeming disengaged since he landed on the Vineyard, more than a week before the Foley video was released.
Michael Brown was killed on August 9; protests in Ferguson went on for days while Obama golfed.
The campaign against ISIS also started rolling, with the fate of the Mosul Dam in the balance. He golfed on.
Russia threatened to invade Ukraine and Israel’s attempts to contain Hamas wore on too, and still he golfed.
Surely the public would react badly to a president frittering away his time on a famously elitist game while the world burned, right?'

JeebusS, from page 1, November 5, 2008:
"Yep.
People don't care. They just wanted a black president. Period.
You're right, they have no one to blame but themselves when taxes skyrocket and the military becomes downsized, leaving us vulnerable to attacks.
They are actually happy that they have put this country in danger. "
Thousands of American troops were killed in Iraq while Bush took almost three times the vacation days Obama did. Bush's unprovoked war put these men and women in danger while he chopped wood in Texas. That didn't seem to bother you right wing morons.

I'll agree with you there, my wife and I let the overweight rightwing backwood hillbillies fight it out for the spaces closest to the store and we'll walk from further out in the parking lot.

Lordy jesus, you are just plain out stupid, a special kind of stupid. did you bother to read my post before commenting, obviously not. In it I said ISIS/ISIL is a threat
What to do about is it a little more complex.
Do we arm the Kurds and risk alienating Turkey and all the other countries with a large Kurdish minority. Arming them may lead to another war, with Kurds establishing their own country then seeking territory from other countries occuppied by Kurds?
Do we help Assad?
Do we make allies of Iran?
Where do you think ISIS is getting its financial, religiouos and political support from?
What country in the neigborhood has the largest Sunni population and is home of radical extremist Wahabbism?
This whole problem stems from removing Saddam from power. It was further excerbated by allowing Malaki, who was in exisle in Iran for years, to exclude Iraqi Sunnis and Kurds from the gov't. He brought this on.
what to do now is something to complex for you simple minded , us or them folk
This coming from a moron who rushed in when I posted an article about FBI searching for ISIS supporters in the US rushes but Bush and goes on the defense fOr Obama.

Cannot be any more hypersensitive and off the wall as your comment was.

Obama is the POTUS he needs to stop being indecisive and MAKE a decision. All this delaying making decisions has made matters worse repeatedly. Ignoring the problem is NOT a solution

ISIS invading Iraq lies at the feet of Obama. He watched them advance and made no move. Only Progressives are still singing your tune.

In the past 20 years how many police officers have been killed by their own weapons -- their own weapon taken by force by an ¨unarmed¨ suspect -- then turned against the officer with fatal results?

Anyone?

C'mon, a quick trip to Google U should help.

I know! And the irony was that there was another spot available to him in a few seconds! What's to fight about? I almost asked him if he wanted to trade spaces; but he was all red and huffing and puffing and then I was worried if he was going to damage my car. These people are sick in the head.

but, but, but....Obumbles is just so darn photogenic. That wide grin from ear to ear right after Foley had a slow, wide cut from ear to ear and more. Obumbles was grinning more than when he was taking selfies at Mandela's funeral.

Fist bump after beheading? Media rage at golfer ObamaThe president drew fire Wednesday after reacting to Foley’s on-camera slaying for just five minutes, and then gripping his driver.

He had told a global audience minutes earlier that ‘when people harm Americans, anywhere, we do what’s necessary to see that justice is done.’

Then he was seen laughing with friends and fist-bumping them during a five-hour round at Farm Neck on Martha’s Vineyard.
