Yes he did. That was a stupid and expensive project that would have had very little effect. The right wing loves to spend money on idiotic ideas like the fence regardless of whether it is likely to work or not.
Arrests and deportations are way up under Obama, and it didn't require an expensive useless fence.
<quoted text>
I hate to get down in the weeds with one of you low information wingnuts, but I'll type slow so maybe you can understand.
Hate crimes are grounded in historical violence and discrimination. White folks never suffered from such violence and discrimination because the are the majority, so they don't need the protection. That is not to say there is no racially motivated black on white crimes it just is not covered under the hate crime laws. Such crimes are still prosecutable under existing criminal statutes.
<quoted text>
Wow! You must have hit the shine pretty hard before you wrote that mess. Not only is it written like a five year old, it's full of utter none sense.
So, you think that a border fence is stupid and a waste of money? Then, you think that national security is stupid and a waste of money?

Deportations are up because, Obama will let look the other way, as they sneak back in.
Most deported, came right back in.

Whites never suffered such violence and discrimination, WHEN they were the majority.
Whites are no longer the majority.
Statistics PROVE that whites are the most targeted victims of hate crimes. How,
in your Obama mind, does that mean whites should not be protected?

And, if as you say, hate crime laws are not needed because
“Such crimes are still prosecutable under existing criminal statutes.”
-
Why do we need any hate crime protection at all? Blacks shouldn't have that added protection either, right?

I'm not really concerned what a pseudo-intellectual partisan hack like you has an opinion about.

You can continue to shill like the worthless commie that you are on obscure internet threads and pretend to be the most intelligent creature on this planet if it will save your long suffering wife from hours of listening to your endless oral masturbation.

I bet that you have to be one of the most boring A-holes that anyone could have the misfortune of living with, because you sure bore me. BTW: Hows that
solar project coming along?. Those panels probably have to work overtime to
fill those golf cart batteries after hauling your fat a$$ from one end of a
very small parking lot to the other.

Coo Coo an apt avatar for this one. DOW at 15,055 up from the 6,047 that the Bushwhacking republicans handed us. Coo Coo prefers to advance inequality of the tea intoxicated republicans. Sad to see how far Texas has descended in their education. They now prefer failures for their leaders.
Republicans mandate for the corporatist elitist. Supreme Court 2010 opens the door to corporatist unlimited funding to our politics. No disclosure required! Corporations in the USA from China, Russia, India, etc. etc. can now purchase our democracy. This is what coo-coo’s prefer.
…………………………Atlantis…………………………
………………There’s a slow train a coming.…………………
…………Ominous Onus’s Omens of Corporatist Elitists!……
………..As the elders of our times choose to remain blind……
Some think that life is but a corporate but you and I have been through that. I hear the riders a coming… Hollering winds all along the watchtowers. Winds of change are rattling our windows. Roberts Jan. 2010 Court ruling of unlimited funds, of corporatist, will hence forth be legal to purchase our politics. Gauntlet has been delivered to the people.
No identification of donors funds required ! Therefore we now observe how Sir Koch is first in line to take advantage of this. Chinese, Iranians, and Germans corporations have an avenue of approach to our democratic principles. Magistrate Roberts has unlatched the draw bridge and Sir Koch is lowering it for the riders that are approaching, and the winds begin to howl. Dust in the winds filling the hallways of our serene democracy.
Sounds of silence from the populace. Camelot besieged and infiltration of the ominous riders enter.
“We The People In Order To Form A More Perfect Union” are interrupted. Voices fill the air, sound the alarm! Trumpet’s have been silenced. Voices fall before the onslaught of the riders. Chaos, fear run within the halls of freedom.
Pied Piper with his dancing prancing Fox seeks to calm the distraught subjects. Voices cry Union, we must Unite, as the riders ride on by. Carving out the multitudes into their separate groups of subjugation.
Ahh… in ruin and polluted beyond appreciation of life. Fair Atlantis submerges beneath the waves of corporatist corruptive pollution, never to rise again. Ahhh Farewell to my dear Atlantis.
As the elders of our times choose to remain blind.
Now why can I not know who paid for this carnage of democracy?
The truth is incontrovertible, malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end; there it is. The inherent vice of capitalism is the unequal sharing of blessings; the inherent virtue of socialism is the equal sharing of miseries. Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy! Winston Churchill
Pharmaceutical companies lobbied hard for ObamaCare, so fear not Burnt Foreskin. You will never run out of meds while typing out your half pages of worthless drivel.

We have had our arguments in the past about your limited abilities to math. So take the time to actually do the math to DJ”s numbers. Your nonsense’s bumper sticker mentality fixated on $6Tillion does not take into account the HUGE DEBT the Bushwhacking republicans handed over of $1.4 Trillion per year plus the 800,000 per month going into unemployment. Obama in 4 ½ years have brought us to an economy with a DOW closing at 15,055 up from the republican Bushwhacking 6,047. Problem is not yet fully solved only identifies your lack of comprehension. Consider it took F.D.R. 13 years to get us out of the republican Great Depression and Obama got us out of the republican Great Recession in less than 2 years and in 4 ½ ; has us back on track to full recovery.
Now any one of the republican candidates would have us return to failed policies and we would now be heading back to desolation row.
Now with your 3 corner Tea Bag hat dance, dance to the republicans chants for inequality. The Coo-Coo’s are out in force today.
DJ’s numbers are correct and very simple to follow.
National debt at start of Bush’s first term:$5.7 trillion
At end of Bush’s second term:$10.35 trillion (+45%)
Household debt at start of Bush’s first term: about $8 trillion
At end of Bush’s second term: more than $14 trillion (+43%)
Unemployment rate at start of Bush’s first term: 4.2 percent
At end of Bush’s second term: 7.2 percent (+42%)
Budget surplus at start of Bush’s first term:$128 billion
Budget deficit at end of Bush second term:$1.2 trillion
Annual cost of Afghan war in 2001:$20 billion
Annual cost of Afghan and Iraq wars in 2009:$208 billion
That is a lot for our President to try to undo - especially when the Republicans don't want any progress.
Since when did household debt become a part of the national debt?. More intellectual dishonesty from Burnt Foreskin. Democrats voted for both
wars, right along with the Republicans.

Progress?. I haven't seen any progress in years. Your so-called leadership would rather spend time and money on Guns, Gays and Immigration issues, instead of jobs and the economy.

The Wall Street upticks and downturns are meaningless to those of us on Main Street.

Defiant tries to insatiate. Chiseling away his republican right wing nut for the arenas of anarchist. Has no comprehension that the voters debt is paramount to the national debt. As to the two wars; one yes the other not so much so. It took a Democrat administration to put an end to the blank check to those to two wars that republican stuffed down our throats, with NO EXIT strategy. Similar to Vietnam and Cambodia.

Defiant sees no progress! With his limited appreciation of math I can understand that. A closed minded individual, reason is swept away. Plays the fool with no exceptions. Money on Guns? Perhaps to strengthen regulations, addressing issues of a runaway NRA ideology. Gays ? Precisely what is your problem with regulating racism? Immigration stimulating the demise of the Aryan bigotry. Something a conservative fears. Jobs was never a priority during any republican administration.{Exception: Eisenhower} Now Defiant is concerned. Really. Seriously doubt that. Economy was devastated both times in 1929 and 2007 by republicans. Now they are soooo concerned. Really. Hey third time is a charm, RIGHT?

Defiant considers the stability of our Markets is meaningless! Precisely what got us into this republican financial chaotic quagmire. After the resulting collapse they are so concerned, Really? Yah RIGHT !
Less government, less regulation an Anarchist dream…

Ah yes; the Carolina’s in the early morning hours. A good time to mediate. Try meditating on how much energy is being delivered by that fusion reactor. Enough to stimulate all of your electrical devices. Imagine a desert and its possibilities.

DESERTEC
Arab, African American deserts can very well be the new glut for energy source. Consider that with a mere 35,000 square miles of barren desert, it can provide the entire planet with its energy requirements.
Presently such an adventure is being studied to do just that. Europe is pushing for a Desertec plan to embrace solar thermal collectors in North Africa and Southern Europe. Heated fluid energy stored into molten salt: to provide the energy to the dynamos to feed their nations. Goal at present is to achieve 15 to 20 percent of Europe’s electrical needs by mid century.
Logistical barriers, from the deserts to the cooler Northern regions, are being addressed by Franz Trieb, German engineer who is responsible for the initial studies on Desertec.
One strategy he proposes is to gather solar and wind as well as thermal energies into a large storage tanks of molten salt.
[ Giant Capacitors!] to be tapped into as demand requires 24/7.
Control on distribution is regulated by a central command system.
Representatives of the Moroccan and Egyptian government have publicly expressed support for Desertec.
Solar Parabolic Thermal Collectors are more efficient than solar panels. Infrastructures required to logistically serve Northern Europe, would require subsides to make them competitive to oil and coal. Considering that governments around the world contribute $312 billion in subsides to fossil fuel industries and only $57 billion to renewable, is an area of corporatist political biases. One that calls for a solution. To suggest or imply that we need to prioritize our wealth investments into a depreciating, limited, polluting cost systems is beyond reason. With complete non polluting renewable system at the ready for deployment. Increase in productivity of employment and an added benefit in reducing negative health issues through out the world and all species.
Deployment of the magnitude will take years as we transfer our energy base and the required technologies upgrades to our present infrastructure to increase efficiency in use of all energies and communicational information.
Joseph Romm, a physicist at the Center For American Progress, emphasizes the vast out lay and importance of the infrastructure. Solar Thermal Plants of the magnitude of 500 megawatts are presently under construction in Quarzazate, Morocco. Here in the USA we have one 500 MW serving Los Vegas and two more 500 MW’s in death Valley; As these plants come to maturity additional plants will go under constructions in various barren desert regions of the world. Infrastructure to address the distributions will be of a paramount quest for our present undertaking.
The GREEN Is Bursting Out!!
Conservatives’ shrivel at the thought.

TEX off again on immature conservative agendas. Seems he is losing it. Gonna miss him as he descends into the abyss of desolation row. Groveling with various theoretical ideologies of the Anarchist. Let us all now collapse our hands together and petition the deity, of your choice, with our various incantations to save this poor soul. Perhaps the deity is unaware of the plight of this devastated soul. We should all help our deity, to do the RIGHT thing. RIGHT?

TEX claims I’m afraid of TRUTH and yet my avatar is not hidden. My identity is not cowering behind some mediocre avatar. Ah but that paranoia is justified with right wing nuts. Truth is sorely lacking with them and they are in fear of their words. Perhaps to embarrassed to be ID’ed , to the trash they spew. Fear? HAH ! here am I in the open light. Tex is in the shadows vomiting in fear.
Perhaps with a few more years to mature and with a tad more wisdom he will come out of the shadows of his fears and embarrassments.
