I wonder when the military will coup under Obama? Obama supports military coups, so it is just karma.
Sorry, but your personal wish to overthrow President Obama with violence simply isn't going to come true.

The United States has the most robust democracy in the history of the world. There will never - NEVER - be a military coup here. Our nation simply doesn't work that way.

The DoD coup is more probable than Obama having a good job approval rating. He has been rocked with multiple scandals and is becoming weaker do to that. People already vote for the lesser of two evils so a self appointed evil is just as acceptible to them.

How is a country with such low voter turnout considered a robust democracy?

The odds of a coup are 0%. Even Bush's approval never got that low. Obama's sure as hell won't. LOL!

Obamacare called ‘The fiasco for the ages’
...The best the Democrats can say about Obamacare is that it’s an approaching train wreck, in the memorable description of Sen. Max Baucus of Montana. Mr. Baucus was one of the authors of the legislation and now he’s hurrying home to Montana for good, anxious to avert his eyes from all the hair, teeth and eyeballs soon to be scattered along the railroad right-of-way.
Pundits and professors are rifling through the thesaurus, looking for the right word to describe what the Wall Street Journal calls “a fiasco for the ages.” The Journal editorialists reminded everyone that they “fought the Affordable Care Act from start to passage, and we’d like to apologize to our readers. It turns out we weren’t nearly critical enough.”
The editors of The New York Times, Mr. Obama’s most reliable sycophants, are deep in mourning, but working furiously to apply more rouge to the corpse before it turns the parlor too fragrant for a wake. It’s summer, and they’re running out of ice.
The “downside” to the delay in implementing the employer mandate is that it gives Republican critics the facts and figures, the “ammunition to portray the health care reforms as a failure,” The Times says. But not to worry, the year’s delay decreed by the president will allow the Internal Revenue Service time to figure out “how this mandate will work … it is more important to do this right than to do it quickly.”
It’s ever so reassuring to know the IRS is on the case.

Now Dan has to deal with the possiblity of a conspiracy to overthrow the government. He has to deny it will ever happen, even when the military and intelligence apparatus have been orchastrating these coups in other countries for decades.

Now DoD has to deal with the fact that there is zero possibility of a military coup in the United States. He has to claim it will happen, even though there has never been anything approaching that possibility in any modern western democracy.

I think that person did not necessariliy imply that. He was just stating that low voter turnout is not a good sign. Of course, voter suppression of young people, minorities, and women, is good for white rightwing Republicans. That is not good for democracy, however. What happens is partly due to low turnout in non-Presidential years, which is partly the fault of young persons and minorities who do not vote in those elections, even when they are not being discouraged by discriminatory voter laws passed by GOP legislatures and signed by GOP governors, or by dirty tricks by a Secretary of State such as Blackwell in Ohio in 2004, when there were nonfunctioning voter machines in black precincts.

If you want to take the view that voter turnout in primaries is also extremely important, and not just in general elections, you would be correct about that. If you think town hall decisions on local matters, with public hearings and open discussion, are good practice for democracy - that is OK when it is a good tradition, but not when a mob is recruited by one side or the other. If you think that court decisions should prevent voter suppression, rather than encourage it, then you would be taking a pro-democracy view.

On top of that, there are plenty of groups one can join, to support lobbying and campaign contributions to candidates one agrees with. There are letters to the editor. There is good behavior in one's own personal life - obeying all reasonable laws, and only disobeying the unreasonable ones if there is no better way to overturn them.

I would be interested in what you meant. I might even agree with you on some process matters and disagree on some substance. process matters very much. it helps to agree on fair processes.

My point is that democracy is not just elections. It is much more than that.

If someone wants to claim that the US does not have a strong and robust democracy, pointing to voter turnout that's lower than they would like it to be isn't sufficient to prove their point. Free and fair elections are just one component of a democracy.

Secretary of State John Kerry fiddles with his rigging while Egypt burns
Secretary of State John Kerry spent time lounging around on his yacht Wednesday while the Egyptian military was deposing their country's democratically elected president Mohammed Morsi, according to various reports.
When Kerry was first spotted on his yatch, called "Isabel," near his vacation home in Nantucket, State Department spokesperson Jen Psaki called the report "completely inaccurate" saying that the Secretary of State had been "working all day and on the phone dealing with the crisis in Egypt," according to CBS News.
Psaki even went so far as to deny that Kerry was even on the boat.
...However, Psaki has now completely reversed course and acknowledges that Kerry "briefly" spent time on his boat Wednesday where he "worked around the clock all day including participating in the President's meeting with his national security council."
Seemingly oblivious to Kerry's recreational activities, the White House released a photo of President Obama meeting with his top security team to talk about Egypt on Wednesday. Kerry is not in the photograph.

Right.

Because who has ever heard of a $7 million, 76 foot yacht having access to television, internet, and telephone communication?

Honest to God - could you be MORE oblivious and petty?

You didn't ask for a definition. You expressed confusion and I offered to explain - all you had to do was make yourself clear. If you had a question, you should have just asked it.

modern - of or pertaining to present and recent time; not ancient or remote

western - in the contemporary cultural meaning, the phrase "Western world" includes Europe, as well as many countries of European colonial origin with majority European ancestral populations in the Americas and Oceania

democracy - a form of government in which the supreme power is vested in the people and exercised directly by them or by their elected agents under a free electoral system

That help?

54 Months: Record Stretch of 7.5%+ Unemployment Continues
July 5, 2013
Since January 2009, when Barack Obama was inaugurated as president, the United States has seen 54 straight months with the unemployment rate at 7.5 percent or higher, which is the longest stretch of unemployment at or above that rate since 1948, when the Bureau of Labor Statistics started calculating the national unemployment rate.
http://cnsnews.com/news/article/54-months-rec...
Ahhhhh, but this is part of the GOP Congress' legacy, not the President's. It is a direct result of the GOP sequester.

----------

Public sector continued to shed jobs in June

The private sector continued to show solid job gains in June, while the public sector kept shedding workers.

The overall public sector lost 7,000 jobs last month, continuing a years-long decline, according to the Labor Department. In comparison, U.S. employers overall added 195,000 new jobs last month. The unemployment rate held steady at 7.6%.

Much of those cuts can be attributed to sequestration, or the $85 billion in across-the-board cuts that the government must implement by the end of its fiscal year in September.

In the last year, the private sector has gained jobs at a 2% rate. But government employment has fallen by 0.2%. That means, over the last 12 months, the private sector added more than 190,000 jobs per month while the government shed 3,000 jobs a month.

----------

Legacy - why can't you rightwingers take responsibility for anything? Why do you insist on shifting the blame for the results of your own policies onto President Obama? I thought the right was big on taking personal responsibility.

LMAO!

Yeah right! IOKIYAAR, right?
