Don't you just love Obama?Welcome to the lunacy that is American policy-
DAVID SIROTA | July 26, 2013
... You may not know about this case, but you should. Called Al-Aulaqi v. Panetta, it illustrates the extremism driving the policies being made in the public's name.
The first thing you should know about this case is that it is simply about a man who wants to know why his grandson is dead.
That's right -- in this age of endless war, a grandfather is having to go to court to try to compel the U.S. government to explain why it killed his grandson in a drone strike despite never charging the 16-year-old American citizen with a crime.
... As the New York Times reported, the Obama administration's Deputy Attorney General Brian Hauck first declared that courts have no right to oversee executive-branch decisions to extrajudicially assassinate Americans.
... He also insisted that the White House already provides adequate due process for those it kills, prompting federal judge Rosemary Collyer to point out that "the executive is not an effective check on the executive."
... The fact that the judge needed to issue such a reminder speaks volumes about an administration utterly unconcerned with constitutional governance.
... In defending the administration, Hauck asserted that such suits should not be permitted because they "don't want these counterterrorism officials distracted by the threat of litigation."
... The radical message is obvious: Yes, the government now claims that America should not want public officials to have to consider the constraints of the law.
... It implies, in other words, that we should want a government that is above the law -- and that we shouldn't want a "chilling effect" on government law breaking because that might endanger us.

Dude you must be living in Saudia Arabia. Cuz it sure ain't the USA or Obama you're talking about. All Obama has done is spend. Well I was always taught, you can't spend your way out of debt. All Obama has done by spending is prolong the inevitable. He fixed or helped nothing. It will all come crashing down and I think that's his intent.

He's just in defense mode. Can you blame him?

He's better than Right Wing Wacko Bush - but, of course, that ain't saying much is it.
Here's more proof of the New Right Wing America :
White House Opposes Freeing Journalist Who Exposed Murder of Civilians.
The Obama administration on Thursday continued its opposition to the release of Yemeni journalist from prison.
Shaye was jailed after he reported on an American missile strike in Yemen that killed numerous civilians.
Though the charges were widely seen as trumped up, Shaye remained in prison at the behest of President Obama, who pressured Yemen's president not to pardon of the journalist.
Shaye was finally freed on Tuesday; the White House said it was "concerned and disappointed" about the release.
Shaye had been imprisoned "because he had the audacity to expose a U.S. cruise missile attack that killed three dozen women and children, and the United States had tried to cover it up.
The White House encouraged the dictator's arrest of the journalist, his beating, and his conviction in a court that every human rights organization in the world recognized as a sham.
Yep... that Obama .... he's such a liberal.

I love that Right Wing Wacko Logic.
Right Wing Wacko Bush took a budget surplus, exploded the budget, and turned it into a $1.4 Trillion Dollar annual deficit,
and Obama cut the $1.4 Trillion Dollar Deficit in half,
let's criticize the guy who cut the deficit in half.
Right Wing Wacko Bush doubled the national debt and spent $ 6 Trillion Dollars on illegal wars,
and Obama brought home the combat troops from Iraq and is reducing troop levels in the Mid East every month,
let's criticize the guy who is cutting the costs of the lunatic Right Wing Wacko wars.
Right Wing Wacko logic is fun !

Those sorry climate change people are at it again. Posting pictures about the north pole melting. Having a field day they are.
This is what they are telling everyone...and the libroids on topix eat it up. So eat away libroids.
"The North Pole Has Melted. Again."
And why you may ask "do I have indigestion."
Well, it's because you constantly eat BS.
Here's the real story.
"The Lake at the North Pole, How Bad Is It?"

Left wing fairy Liberals are the most blood thirsty and dictatorial leaders ever to to stomp on their citizens, and any others who get in the way.

I enjoy a good sense of humor, laughing is good. I find the conservatives are much better at it.

Another hard hitting, fact laden, persuasive, rational analysis.
No way my puny little post consisting of indisputable objective facts could withstand that withering assault.
Oh wait ...
When confronted with fact based rational analysis - the response, as usual, is just another Right Wing Wacko as hominem attack, that might be persuasive to a mentally challenged pet hamster.

Now this is typical libroid reasoning and the way their brain expresses logical thinking.
San Diego Mayor Bob Filner ""My failure to respect women is unacceptable."
But only after he got outted.
Snakes exposed to sunshine say the damnedest things.

Them are just numbers dude. Take a look around. It ain't gettin no better for us. Now he want to legalize the mexicans. When he does their whole damn family will come here legally and bankrupt, our already dead economy. That's not racist. That's the truth. He backed Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood, that campaigned on praying in Israel, after they destroy Israel. That's a fact. He's demanding their release as we speak. That's a fact. He is encouraging talks between Iran and Egypt, which is breaking the peace treaty they have with Israel. That's a fact. He kills his enemies and their children with drones. That's a fact. He let guns "walk" into Mexico and our guys got killed behind it. That's a fact. I could go on and on with facts that the whole world knows and are talking about. Russia is now talking war with Iran, against us. They are openly defying and condemning us. Those are the facts that we need to be worried about. Not what Bush did. We are blindly heading into World War 3 and Obama is leading us there. Damn what Bush done, I'm worried about now and the future. You need to wake up.

A new form of drones that can be eaten.
Could feed the world's poor.

I love this.
How Right Wing Wackos hate plain facts.
Right Wing Wackos want to pretend:
- Right Wing Wacko Bush didn't inherit a balanced budget;
- Right Wing Wacko Bush didn't leave us with his last budget of $ 1.4 Trillion Dollar 2009 annual deficit;
- Right Wing Wacko Bush didn't double the national debt;
- Right Wing Wacko Ray-Gun didn't double the national debt;
- the Right Wing Wacko Bush Great Recession hasn't officially ended;
- the Dow Jones wasn't at 7,468 in 2008, and hasn't risen in value to 15,558 today, causing any 401K Plan invested in a Dow based mutual fund, to double in value;
- the real estate market hasn't improved substantially, home prices haven't increased 12% last year, and aren't improving at an even faster pace in affluent sections of Florida,
Now, please..... dispute the facts and appear even sillier - it's fun to watch.
It's so entertaining.

How long before Obama sheds his adoration of Mursi and blame the whole affair on republicans.
Wait, he did the same thing with Rev Wright.
"Egypt's Mursi accused of murder and kidnapping before rallies."
