I guess things work differently in your motherland!!!
Well, why do you socialists want a monarchy? Have you heard of the Constitution? Have you read the Constitution? Have you ever heard of the term, "Checks and Balances" ? Do you know what it means? Do you know how law is made? If you just look at the Constitution, you would see Article I, has 10 mostly lengthy sections, Article 2, has 4-Sections, and Article 3 has 3-Sections. In order they are rules and laws governing the Legislative, Executive, and Judicial Branches of Government. The power of our government is supposed to rest with the people via the morons we elect to the legislature. The president's job is to EXECUTE the laws passed by the Legislature and Judicial is to fix squabbles. The right wants the president to do his job, not campaign, not make law, but enforce it. The problem the right has, is we expect the imbeciles on the left to know how our Democratic Republic works. What are you going to do if we elect a hard right winger to the Presidency and he disregards the Constitution like this POS has.

It was the golf thing that pissed people off—even Obama’s usually blind supporters.
Shortly after he told the whole world how mad he was that an American was beheaded, he's on a golf cart laughing. Which is which? Happy or sad. It can't be both.
It is not that complicated, but when has the left ever let the truth actually come out.
Bush's Ranch" (where he actively worked on Presidental matters) is NOT the same as the vacations Obama has taken - why don't you compare the "cost" associated with Obama's vacations!!!!!!
Aren't you tired of paying for these extravagant vacations?
Moochelle and her whole gang going to Spain? Skiing, etc. etc. at a cost of 120K per hour to operate AF 1 ?
Moochelle in a hotel in China -- with her whole entourage--in a hotel that cost $8K per night.
I don't care if he takes the rest of the two years off, that actually might be an improvement over the rare times Zero has a plan, as long as I don't have to pay for him and his whole family (including his mother in law) to stay at a cost of a million dollars a day.
Why Weren’t Conservatives Upset About The Cost Of Bush’s Two Africa Trips?

The right is apoplectic about President Obama’s trip to Africa, slated to cost upwards of $60 million, as detailed by the Washington Post. But it’s apparently only wrong when Obama does it.

Bush Refuses To Interrupt His Final Vacation As Middle East Crisis Escalates

While Bush has been briefed on the situation by Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and National Security Adviser Stephen Hadley, he has opted not to interrupt his final vacation as president to make a public statement on the crisis. For someone who has enjoyed the most vacation days as sitting president — including days spent relaxing in comfort during Hurricane Katrina and in the lead-up to 9/11 — it shouldn’t come as a huge surprise that Bush prioritizes vacationing over crisis management.

G.O.P. chief Reince Priebus ripped President Obama on Sunday
for consuming three meals a day while on vacation in Martha’s Vineyard.
“With international crises boiling over in Iraq, Syria, and Ukraine, it’s unconscionable that the President is having breakfast, lunch, and dinner,” he said.
The White House defended the President’s eating habits, noting that his predecessor, George W. Bush, frequently supplemented his three meals a day with an afternoon snack, but Priebus was unmoved by this argument.“It sends a very dangerous message to our enemies to see President Obama eating,” he said.
Borowitz never did one on naked woman so you are one up on him

Maybe you know of a House-passed bill since 2011 that was taken up for a vote in the Senate. The rest of us don't.
Even the 2013 GOP bill to avoid part of the fiscal cliff, a GOP bill to pave the way for tax reform, the Keystone Pipe bill, and the House’s Cut, Cap, and Balance long-term spending plan languishes in the Senate. So far, 40 bills are still waiting for an up or down vote in the Senate.
Harry Reid is apparently peeved at Republicans for not going along with Democrats in making Americans pay more in taxes.
So he's abusing his power to get back at them by obstructing bills that would have a positive effect on jobs and the economy at our expense.
How many bills did the House pass since Jan 2011 that either repealed the ACA, Weakened the ACA, defunded the ACA, weakened the Dodd/Frank bill, or in general had a poison pill ion it.

How many bills had the Keystone Pipeline approval hidden in it?

Carol is just another dumbass right whiner who backs the Republican strategy of hold us back in order to try to win the next election just as she backed the Republican efforts under Bush that created the worst recession in 780 f*cking years.

The difference between the right whiners and ISIS, is at least ISIS is honest about hating America.

NYC libs who are now in charge of the world's finest and most effective police force are telling cops to back off in certain communities, and don't enforce the laws because of community hostility to the police. I say fine. Send the police to the neighborhoods where bottles are not thrown at the officers from rooftops and the people respect the police. Let the riff raff continue to kill each other. We can rename whole sections of New York City with names like Detroit East and Chicago East. Little Democrat hell holes.
Cops have been ordered to back off policing a section of Washington Heights where residents attacked officers with bottles while chanting,“Hands up, don’t shoot!” over the weekend.
The chant was a reference to the fatal police shooting of an unarmed black teen, Michael Brown, in Ferguson, Mo., last month.
The NYPD order, issued after the clash Saturday night, follows a similar directive given to cops in the Staten Island precinct where Eric Garner was killed in a police chokehold.
The city’s expanding “hands-off” policing strategy has some cops upset.
“Police-community relations are becoming more important than public safety,” a law-enforcement source in Washington Heights griped to The Post.
Residents said cops were not seen all day Monday on the block where the clash occurred, at West 164th Street and Amsterdam and Edgecombe avenues.
But those who live in the area said they doubted the cops’ no-policing strategy would last.
“They say they aren’t going to harass us, but in all reality, they’re going to harass us,” a man said.“They’ll be back.”
The block was hosting its annual Love is Love gathering just after 10 p.m. Saturday when the violence erupted and five cops were injured.
http://nypost.com/2014/09/02/cops-ordered-to-...
Brooklyn cops were ordered to ignore blatantly illegal liquor sales inside three junkyards that were turned into open-air nightclubs — drawing thousands of rowdy revelers who vomited and urinated in the streets during the Labor Day weekend, The Post has learned.
A 25-year-old man who was at one of the parties tied to the West Indian Day Parade was critically injured by two drunken men who followed him outside and stabbed him with a broken beer bottle.
While the junkyard parties have been operating illegally for several years, cops cracked down and shut them all about three weeks ago, law enforcement sources said — but commanding officers in the 63rd and 69th precincts got a directive from NYPD brass to let the festivities resume this past weekend.
“They were told to turn a blind eye,” one source said.
The command, which was delivered last week, is believed to have originated within City Hall at the request of local politicians, the sources added.
Early Monday, The Post saw hundreds of people lined up to pay $40 each for admission to the Jet Auto Wreckers junkyard on Kingsway Place in East Flatbush. Bouncers frisked the partiers and checked their IDs before allowing them to enter — including many attractive women who appeared underage.
Inside the fence, a crowd packed elbow-to-elbow under canopies and swayed to music booming from 8-foot-high stacks of loudspeakers.

Hey rReal Stupid Dave, sorry to see you survived Labor Day, but since you did, here is a news flash: House Republicans with bi-partisan support has passed 347 House Bills and sent them to Harry Reid who refuses to let the Senate, which the Dims hold a majority, vote on. Why? Because the majority of Democrats in the Senate would vote for them and embarrass small minded Harry and the small dik'd president. Obama, a JV President who could never make the JV traveling squad for anything including Legos.
I am glad you f*cking whiners support Republicans in the House that have wasted so much time & effort passing bills they know will go nowhere in the Senate. Yep,the Republicans keep including repeals & degradations to the AA, Frank/Dodd, and Keystone Pipe line approvals or some other aspect that they know will force Reid not to take up the bill.

They are called poison pills.

GM reportedly ready to introduce facial recognition tech in cars
Published September 02, 2014FoxNews.com Facebook19 Twitter17 livefyre3

Have your eye on a new car? Well, it soon may be looking back at you.
General Motors is set to introduce vehicles with facial recognition technology in an effort to combat distracted driving, according to a report in The Financial Times.
The system, reportedly developed by Seeing Machines, an Australian outfit working with the automotive supplier Takata, uses a camera to monitor head movement and eye-blink frequency. It can “see” when a driver is dozing off behind the wheel or is looking away from the road, perhaps to use a cellphone, and it then takes action to alert the driver.
General Motors declined comment on the report.
Seeing Machines, which has earmarked the technology for a variety of industrial and automotive uses, says it can also enable gesture controls and be used as a security system, allowing the vehicle to be started only by authorized individuals who are authenticated through facial recognition.
GM may be the first to bring this type of tech to market, but it’s not the only automaker looking into it.
Earlier this year, Ford unveiled Project Mobii, which is focused more toward customizing the preferences of drivers and helping them interact with their cars through eye and hand movements. It also provides security through authentication and the ability to snap a photo of a potential intruder and send it to the car owner’s smartphone.
Volvo, meanwhile, is testing a system it calls Driver State Estimation that uses invisible infrared lights to identify drivers and track their eye movements.
Although much of the sensor technology used by these systems is readily available, the key to their success is the software that processes the information. The possibilities of what can be done with the data are almost endless.
An experiment conducted by French automaker Peugeot-Citroen and the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne in Switzerland studied whether a system could be devised to determine if a driver is angry or upset and more likely to commit an act of road rage. The researchers said it showed promise, but the wide variety of ways people show emotion remains a hurdle to developing a universal algorithm.
The technology, of course, raises questions about personal security in light of the fact that many cars today are connected to the cloud through built-in or tethered cellular phone-based telematics, like GM's own OnStar. A 2003 federal lawsuit revealed that the FBI once tapped this type of system to monitor a conversation going on inside of a car, and it's possible that an on-board camera could be accessed through wireless network, as well. However, the court ruled that such actions are illegal, even if access granted with permission from the automaker, since the takeover deactivated the primary safety feature of the unidentified system without the driver's knowledge.
The Financial Times says Takata is under contract to deliver 500,000 facial recognition devices over the next three to five years. There’s no word on when or in what vehicles GM plans to introduce it.
just one more reason not to buy a car manufactured by the US government....
