But yet we still wait for your appearance before the US Supreme Court to lay down your case against Obama.

Then-Sen. Obama
>>> co-sponsored <<<

‘stand your ground’ law in 2004 in Illinois

...

The pertinent legislation was SB 2386, amending the criminal code of 1961. It was introduced in the 93rd General Assembly session and passed into law on July 28, 2004.

The text summary read:“Provides that it is an affirmative defense to a violation of a municipal ordinance that prohibits, regulates or restricts the private ownership of firearms if the individual who is charged with the violation used the firearm in an act of self-defense or defense of another. Effective immediately.”
The Illinois General Assembly website indicates then-Sen. Obama signed on as a co-sponsor on March 25, 2004.
Fast-forward to 2013, post-acquittal of Florida resident George Zimmerman, and Mr. Obama is now denouncing the very same laws he once supported.

Really? You forgot to mention the American teen killed by Obama's Drone. You forgot to mention the victims at Ft. Hood. Is that why Obama demands it be explained as "workplace violence" so the count on his watch doesn't grow? What about the American soldier killed in Little Rock that the Obama administration classifies as a "drive-by shooting"? Obama's death toll numbers are pretty high for a prez that claims he has nothing to do with any wars and especially since he shut Al Qaeda down and had them running for the hills, skeered of Obama...and then the Benghazi terrorists showed him just how afraid they really were, huh?

And you forgot to put the democrats "VIETNAM" stats in your post. JFK's Vietnam war stats are numbers you always seem to forget when you discuss "Republican wars". Those pretty much blow Bush and Reagans little numbers all to hell, huh?

Republicans who got farm subsidies targeted

House Democrats are targeting Republicans who receive farm subsidies but opposed a stripped-down farm bill with no food stamp assistance.

Fourteen GOP lawmakers have received a total of $7.2 million in farm subsidies, according to the available data since 2004, but all voted for an amendment that would have decreased the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program according to a report Rep. George Miller (D-Calif.) is releasing Monday.

“It’s outrageous that some members of Congress feel it is OK to vote for their own taxpayer subsidies but against critical nutrition assistance for 47 million Americans,” Miller said.“It’s bad enough that the House of Representatives didn’t pass a farm bill that included authorization for sorely needed nutrition programs, but to see members of Congress approving their own benefits at the expense of the working poor is a new low, even for this Congress.”

The farm bill originally included funding for SNAP, but when it failed to get enough votes in the House in June, Republicans stripped food stamp funding from the bill to gain enough GOP support for passage. In July, on a partisan vote, the farm bill passed without food stamp funding.

Only one of the 14 members listed in the report, Rep. Marlin Stutzman (R-Ind.), voted against the bill when it included SNAP benefits but for it once SNAP was removed.

Rep. Stephen Fincher (R-Tenn.) has received a total of $3.5 million in farm subsidies, according to numbers tracked by the lobbying firm Environmental Working Group. The company points out that according to his congressional filings, his net worth is between $204,995 and $1.1 million. And 22 percent of the residents of Fincher’s home county receive food stamps.

Fincher argues he’s trying to get rid of subsidies he benefits from.

“As I’ve long said, the farm bill is in need of major reform,” Fincher said in a statement.“At first chance, I voted to remove direct payments. Both the House and the Senate passed bills that end direct payments, and as we move forward, I hope we can work out the rest of the issues to implement the necessary reforms.”

Rep. Doug LaMalfa (R-Calif.) received $1.7 million in farm subsidies and resides in a county in which 11 percent of the population receives SNAP benefits.

“The congressman has long advocated for modernizing federal farm programs. He voted for eliminating the subsidies that are in question.

What’s more, I would add that voting on the stripped-down farm bill in no way affected the SNAP program, and those criticizing it as such are misinformed,” said Kevin Eastman, spokesman for LaMalfa.

Poll: Public service valued; politics — not so much

WASHINGTON — The American impulse to make a contribution to the community is strong, but the feeling that politics can be an avenue to do that seems to be souring.

A new USA TODAY/Bipartisan Policy Center poll finds that Americans by more than 2-1 say the best way to make positive changes in society is through volunteer organizations and charities, not by being active in government. Those younger than 30 are particularly put off by politics. They are significantly less likely than their parents to say participating in politics is an important value in their lives.

The Ohio State University sophomore was thrilled last year to get an internship working at the Ohio Legislature, but he didn't learn the lesson he expected. The experience convinced him he didn't want a career in government or politics.
"I thought I wanted to be one of them," the 19-year-old from Lebanon, Ohio, says. "But it was more that politics was a game they wanted to play, and it wasn't about the constituents." He's switched his major from political science to non-profit management, and he hopes to "give back and influence the world" by working for a charitable group, perhaps one that helps people with special needs.

"There's a skepticism of government," says Rep. Aaron Schock, R-Ill., who at age 32 is the second-youngest current member of Congress. "Young people say, if I want to feed the hungry or make a difference for cancer patients, it's easier to do that through a non-profit and see the tangible results up close than, say, trying to push for federal funding to do the same."

Analysts warn of a dangerous downward cycle: Perceptions of government as dysfunctional and politics as corrupt keep getting worse. That convinces some of the nation's ablest people, especially those just starting out, that they don't want to run for office or work for the government at any level. As a result, government and politics are likely to work even less well — presumably prompting perceptions to fall further.

It's hard to imagine assessments of Washington getting much worse. Only one in five of those surveyed say they trust the federal government to do what is right most of the time. There is a close split, 42%-38%, on whether they see the government as an advocate or an adversary for them and their families.(The partisan divide: Republicans and independents view the federal government as an adversary while Democrats see it as an advocate.)

"These two worlds of civic life and of public life used to be almost the same world, but these worlds have clearly separated," says Paul Light, a professor of public service at New York University. Among the students he teaches, he sees "a general sense that politics is for losers, for ne'er-do-wells, for the corrupt and for the under-motivated and greedy."

That's true even though Obama generated an unprecedented level of support and engagement among young people in the 2008 campaign. "When (John) Kennedy or (Lyndon) Johnson or (Franklin) Roosevelt went to Washington with a lot of youth support, a lot of those people thought,'I'll go to Washington to work in a political job or the civil service,'" says Peter Levine, a professor of citizenship and public affairs at Tufts University. Not this time. "The closest they would get is working for Teach for America."

Dan Glickman remembers how he felt he had won "a glory job" when he was elected in 1976 for the first of nine terms in the House of Representatives. Now, he says, "I think that a lot of people see politics as not an honorable profession anymore."

The Kansas Democrat co-chairs the Commission on Political Reform for the Bipartisan Policy Center, a Washington-based think-tank. The BPC and USA TODAY are partners in a year-long project examining polarization and other challenges facing politics in the United States.

A town hall forum exploring changing attitudes toward public service is set for Tuesday at the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia, near the site where the nation's founders debated and devised the American political system.

"At the end of every day, or at least at the end of every week, I feel I made a change," says Bess Dopkeen, who works at the Pentagon.
Bess Dopkeen sees the rewards of working for the government as powerful.

After she graduated from Tufts with a bachelor of arts degree in 2004, she moved to Washington on a fellowship for what she thought would be a career with a non-profit organization that focused on international development. To her surprise, she ended up being hired by a defense contractor and, three years later, by the Pentagon.

"Every day I get to do analysis and put it in front of decision-makers and help them make the right decision on really important stuff," Dopkeen, 31, says. "At the end of every day, or at least at the end of every week, I feel I made a change."

When it comes to careers, those surveyed are most interested in owning their own business, for many part of the American dream: 46% say they would be extremely or very interested in that. Slightly more than a third embrace the idea of working for a small business or a non-profit group. Only one in five express strong interest in working for the government or a large corporation, or serving in the military.

At the bottom is being an elected official or working for one, drawing a lot of interest from about one in 10.

The nationwide poll of 1,071 adults was taken by landline and cellphone June 24-27 by Republican pollster Whit Ayres and Democratic pollster Mark Mellman. The margin of error is +/–5 percentage points.

There is, perhaps, a glass-half-full/glass-half-emp ty aspect to the finding that 14% of those surveyed seriously have thought about running for public office. That means the overwhelming majority of Americans haven't. On the other hand, Ayres and Mellman note, it also means roughly 40 million people have.

LAWMAKER SHREDS OBAMA'S 'IMPERIAL PRESIDENCY'
'This is one of the reasons this country separated from King George'

WASHINGTON – It was as if everyone finally noticed the emperor had no clothes.

It began July 3, the day after the administration decided to delay enforcing the Obamacare employer mandate for a year, when Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa, pointed out the move was strictly illegal.

“He has no constitutional authority to simply waive the law … only Congress can do so,” King said.

A few days passed quietly. Then suddenly, many seemed to notice the significance of what King had said.

On July 8, Michael McConnell, a former judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit and director of the Constitutional Law Center at Stanford Law School, wrote an op-ed in the Wall Street Journal titled “Obama Suspends the Law.

That huge pool of potential candidates has particular demographic characteristics. It includes:

•25% of those who earn at least $100,000 a year, but just 10% of those who earn less than $50,000.
•22% of men, but just 8% of women.
•22% of college graduates, but just 9% of those who don't have a college degree.
•17% of whites, but just 8% of African Americans.

Why do so few actually run?
In response to an open-ended question, the top reason cited by those 30 and older is that they decided running for office would be too time-consuming. The top reason among those younger than 30 is that politics is vicious and nasty.
Oregon Rep. Greg Walden, chairman of the National Republican Congressional Committee, says when he tries to persuade newcomers to run for Congress they nearly always express concern about the need to raise money, the impact on their family life, and what entering a combative political world fueled by social media is likely to do to their reputation.

"Every word matters now," he warns them. "What you say in your district 2,000 miles away is 144 characters and the speed of light away from every one of us. It's called Twitter."

Perhaps surprisingly, people with the dimmest view of the government are the most likely to have considered running for office. Those who say they never trust the government to do what is right are almost twice as likely to have thought about running than those who trust the government most or almost all of the time.

That's consistent with what New York Rep. Steve Israel, chairman of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, says he finds in seeking candidates. "The reputation for Congress is at a historic low," he says. "This doesn't make it harder for us to recruit; it actually makes it easier for us to recruit.... It motivates them to run to change things."

Americans overwhelmingly endorse some policies designed to encourage public service or community service, the poll found. Three of four support the idea of providing a stipend or educational benefits to people who volunteer. Two-thirds back incentives for employers to allow workers to take sabbaticals to work in public service or community service jobs.

And nearly six in 10 like the idea of requiring every American ages 18 to 25 to serve one year in the military, the Peace Corps or a community service organization such as Habitat for Humanity. The only age group that didn't support that idea was the one that actually would be affected. People 50 and older support mandatory service by more than 2-1, but those under 30 narrowly oppose the idea, 50%-48%.

Ayres and Mellman liken the poll findings on public service to those on public transit, "with many citizens thinking it is an excellent idea for someone else to do."

Those involved say encouraging public service is likely to depend less on mandates and more on demonstrating that government can address the nation's big problems — especially for younger Americans who have grown up watching a system that often seems paralyzed.

Kelsey Gallagher, 21, has a bachelor's degree in political science from Ohio State University but decided to go back this fall for a master's in the Public Administration program. "Working at a non-profit or doing community service, you get more of a firsthand experience," she says. "You get to see the direct effects."

Gaby Pacheco, 28, is taking a different route. She's become a fixture on Capitol Hill, lobbying for changes on behalf of young immigrants like herself who were brought to the USA illegally as children — an issue only government ultimately can solve. "Being involved, it's not for the faint of heart," she acknowledges. "But at least you know that you are trying."
