<quoted text> One facet to Obama's administration, i do appreciate is the use of special forces and surgical strikes, as opposed to troops on the ground....drone surveillance and warfare is much better use of assets, rather than loss of military lives....I was in hopes, they might adapt drone aircraft, for use on our own border security....equiped with infra-red vision, they could recognize the heat patterns of illegals, and communicate to agents/troops, on the ground....
Like these?

That's our MIC at work, providing jobs and protecting our nation (those bastards!).

If our process has any real fault, it would probably be our notion that we must undo the work of the prior administration. Running in place doesn't suit us.

Yes, that is exactly the type use, i describe...but i know, civil liberties freaks are eventually protest their use, or want to limit it....I think we need to tone down the world's cop mentality....Beside's its so selective, almost racially so....

So?

If we're going to do it we shouldn't do it with one hand tied behind our backs. If we have an immigration problem with Mexicans, profile Mexicans. If we are at war with people that look Afghan, profile Afghans. And dammit, we have to stop pussy-footing around and get those Canadians under control! We should be picking those hosers out at intersections using traffic cams.

So?

Illegals have no constitutional rights and the rest of us who do have been walking through security camera'd life for years. My drugstore never asked me to sign a release and I'm perfectly aware they record my image while in there. Somebody, maybe an ACLU lawyer will lay awake at night stressing the invasion of privacy...I sleep better knowing that only criminals are the target.

Just a note from a friend on the net:

This is the END of America as all of you have known it. Socialism is what's coming very fast. People who voted for it have no idea what's coming.
10% unemployment will be the norm. College kids w/o jobs will be the norm. Health Ins. cost going thru the roof.(obama free health care).
Gas 4 -$5. normal, for now, than like europe $8 gallon. Electricity and home heating gas will skyrocket.
World military escallation due to US cut backs on our defense. Israel will be isolated by obama and he will back the muslim brotherhood.
These are just a few things that is here to stay. Get ready for a different life than you have known. USA will be down rated
to a B+ ratings soon. We will be up to $20 Trillion in debt by 2016. I just feel sorry for my grandchildren who will be taxed to death to pay all this back.
Carter damaged this country that took 20 years to repair, this time it will take a lot more, if ever.
One day you'll be able to tell your kids and grandkids what America was like before obama. Settle in for 4 long years.
God Bless America, and God Help America.
PS. Yesterday a russian friend (came to America recently) of mine said to me that he tells all his American friends that "Your future is my past".
Sad commentary by a new immigrant who came here to escape socialism.

I'll have you know there was absolutely no question back then...Florida was the vacation home of the Confederacy, all the big plantation owners had beach houses down here. Where did you think all the carpetbaggers were headed after the war, Savannah? Puhleeeeeze.

The stock market dipped in response to the string of earthquakes from Guatemala to Vancouver. Let's see, 7.4, 4.4, and 6.3, that's a combined magnitude of 17.9 Don't look now but Haifa is on Tsunami Watch.:) The question we should be asking ourselves is:

HOW"D OBAMA DO THAT????????

How did he do that??? Its easy, just between you and me, there are too many stupid Americans who know nothing except McDonalds (nothing wrong with that) but they know nothing else, so this fake muslim comes along who was brought up by priests who converted from Islam and other wonderful people like American terrorists, communists and socialist and started preaching, YES Preaching to the asshole masses promising them heaven on earth. Sorry to see the greatest nation on earth sliding into third world shit. If you cant see it yet wait, it will come to you. We went thru this and millions more, that Russian immigrant got it right when he said: Your future is my past. But of course to most Americans it means nothing cause they cant even pinpoint Russia on the map. I blame the Reps too, they dont educate the youngsters about democracy, the best thing on earth besides apple pie.
God Bless America, not obamas.
