Barack Obama, our next President

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ... Full Story

<quoted text>it's so perplexing that right wing crazies have a 'kill all muslims' mentality, then balk at it being an American overseas, but have no problems with it with an American in the US.
They want to 'protect' an American's rights overseas, but are will to put it aside for a Muslim in America.
Such a confused bunch!
I haven't noticed any of the "right wing crazies" forwarding this argument so if you're talking about me you couldn't be further off base.

What is causing an increasing population of medical tourist. Liberal International Free Markets !
A sampling of Health Care cost in the USA versus other Nations.
USA avg. cost for an Angiogram $914 Canada’s cost $35 ! Colonoscopy USA $1,185 Switzerland $655 ! USA hip replacement $40,364 Spain $7,731! USA Liptor $124.00 New Zealand $6.00! USA MRI scan $1,121, Netherlands $319!
.Source: 2012 Comparative Price Report by the International Federation of Health Plans. The average prices shown for colonoscopies do NOT include added fees for sedation by an anesthesiologist, a practice common in the United States, but unusual in the rest of the world. The additional charges can increase the cost “significantly.”
Here is a sample of actual colonoscopy cost to some patients in the USA.
Deirdre Yapalater recent colonoscopy in Merrick N.Y. that went smoothly as routine cancer screening can be expected. Nothing found and she was billed $6,385! Which is closer to the norm. Matt Meyer of Keen N.H. colonoscopy bill $7,563.56. Maggie Christ, Chappaqua N.Y. received her bill for colonoscopy $9142.84!
Insurance companies were responsive to those patients charges by increasing their premiums by 10%, rising co-payments and deductibles. Price of quality? Not so, for numerous studies have discovered that Americans do not get better Health Care than the Nations that provide this procedure for less than $1,000 max.
International Federation of Health Plans list the USA as the highest most costly in all of the 21 categories that they investigated. Cost difference significantly larger than that of Nations that have private or national systems for their Health Care. Hip replacement in USA four time that of Switzerland and France. Caesarean section three times of New Zealand or Britain. USA Nasonex for allergies $108, Spain’s price $21. Hospital stays triple that of the rest of the developed nations. Reported from the Commonwealth Fund Foundation in their studies of health policies.
….Colonoscopy moved from the doctors routine examination to surgical atmospheres. More economical scenarios for this procedure is still practiced through out the developed world.
We’ve defaulted to by far, the most expensive option, without much if any data to support it,” said Dr. H. Gilbert Welch, a professor of medicine at the Dartmouth Institute for Health Policy and Clinical Practice.
…“The U.S. just pays providers of health care much more for everything,” said Tom Sackville, chief executive of the health plans federation and a former British health minister.
Obamacare about to take center stage will be addressing these issue as well as many others. Hopefully in time to suppress the growing tide of Medical Tourist seeking the Liberal International Free Trade Markets with their medical competitors.
YOUR ARGUMENT IS A RIGHT TO LIFE ARGUMENT silly thats a right wing point of view ABORTION IS THE DEMOCRAT SOLUTION the FINAL SOLUTION IS ABORTION YOU CANNOT AFFORD TO HAVE A CHILD DONT HAVE ONE UNTIL YOU CAN JESUS WAS BORN IN A MANGER BECAUSE they didnt have HEALTh INSURANCE

Here, from a transcript posted at the Politico, is what Obama actually said about the need to deepen certain coastal ports:
quote:
Q. You mentioned infrastructure. Why is that a partisan issue? I live in a town, the bridge is falling apart, it’s not safe. How does that become Republican or Democrat? How do you not just fix the bridge?(Laughter and applause.)
THE PRESIDENT: I don't know. As you know, for the last three years, I’ve said, let’s work together. Let’s find a financing mechanism and let’s go ahead and fix our bridges, fix our roads, sewer systems, our ports. The Panama is being widened so that these big supertankers can come in. Now, that will be finished in 2015. If we don't deepen our ports all along the Gulf — places like Charleston, South Carolina, or Savannah, Georgia, or Jacksonville, Florida — if we don't do that, those ships are going to go someplace else. And we’ll lose jobs. Businesses won’t locate here.
The only conceivable way to interpret what Obama actually said is that the ports of Charleston, Savannah, and Jacksonville are "along the Gulf" of Mexico. Of course, these ports are really on the Atlantic Ocean.
Its that word "interpret" that spoils it because you're interpretation is going to invariably be to the negative. That you even bother with something as petty and inconsequential as this says a lot about you.

If you return to Galt's original post, Galt was very careful to refer to "tax rate cuts" for the middle class, of which there were none. The payroll tax rate was not reduced, but a portion just temporarily suspended.
That "portion" was a percentage rate.

Its not that we are to support collateral damage from wars. This has always been the price of war. Innocents pay the price of the martyred.
Universal solider responds to commands. They are from all ideologies and mythologies; At times, they are of the same ideologies and mythologies. Without them war would cease. War is never won. Survivors remain to gather up the destruction; Preparing for the next call for the Universal Solider.
If one was to truly not support the martyring of the innocent, then they would refuse the call to their universal soldiers’ duties. Which only a few do and they are condemn by their culture.
Maturity of the worlds population have constantly emphasized their lack of intelligent leadership to peace. Until that day the Universal Solider will stand at the ready and collateral damage will take its toll.

Kinda like those who say you should talk freely to the police because you have nothing to fear if you're innocent.
It looks to me that the assumption behind the PATRIOT Act was that Republicans would remain in power in perpetuity, that they never considered there would come a time when it would enable the opposition.

FUNNY OBAMA cOULDNT CLOSE GITMO BUT AS SOON AS HE NEEDED AL QUIDA THEY KEPT ESCAPING thats one I thought he had them on the run he decimated their leadership sorry the reselection is over he funds AL QUIDA but they are were thr enemy or do they REALLY WORK WITH OR FOR the GLOBALISTS and when they need to get a government in line they are lt out Washington proclaimed that a “threat” was discovered that al Qaeda–an organization that Washington is using in Washington’s effort to overthrow the Assad government in Syria and one that is enriched by US military contracts to affiliated groups in Afghanistan–was going to blow up US embassies in the Middle East and North Africa. Washington did not explain why al Qaeda, a recipient of Washington’s largess, was going to turn off the money spigot by attacking US embassies.

I am surprised that bombs haven’t been set off in the embassies in order to prove the value of the National Stasi Agency’s spying, thereby shaming those in Congress and among the puppet states in Europe who object to the spying.

Once you give a moment’s thought to Washington’s claim, you see that Washington is proving its impotence by hyping such non-existent threats. Officially, the US has been at war with al Qaeda since October 7, 2001. The “superpower” has been battling a few thousand lightly armed al Qaeda for almost 12 years, and what is the result?

Despite Washington’s claims to have killed al Qaeda’s top leaders, including Osama bin Laden himself, Washington has lost the war. Al Qaeda has grown so powerful that it not only fights in Syria, with Washington’s help, against Assad, but also has prevented the US military from occupying Afghanistan. Moreover, in addition to al Qaeda’s military success against the “superpower” and the chaos that al Qaeda continues to produce in Iraq, al Qaeda now is so powerful that it can shut down US embassies all across the Middle East and North Africa. The “threat” which was supposed to boost the NSA’s position actually proves Washington’s powerlessness.

We an only pray that soon al Qaeda shuts down Washington itself. Imagine the sense of American liberation if Washington simply was shut down, or even better if Washington could be put under Punjab’s magic blanket and disappeared. For the 99 percent, and the rest of the world, Washington is nothing but an oppressor.

Watched that video, and its typical feral chimp BS. 1 on 1 is a fair fight, but negroes rarely do that (which is surprising, given their higher percentage of physical superiority over anglos). That was a mob beating and robbery (they took his wallet and phone too).
The only way to deal with feral chimps like that is to use the George Zimmerman method. The more violent thugs out of the gene pool, the merrier.....
But the victim is only 13. Can't expect CCW for him.

And the Bus Driver was black, too, so I wouldn't expect any guts on his part either.

What "war"?

The "war" on drugs?

The "war" on poverty?

The "war" on terror? That one?

Any time the government tells you they are at "war" and the word "with" and the name of a country doesn't accompany it, its just a mechanism by which the government can expand its authority and abuse of that authority. Oh yeah, not only will our civil rights come under attack, its gonna hit us hard in the wallet to boot.

According to some., their US citizenship makes them untouchable for military strikes. Thy can only be arrested.
I'm sorry, but that is stupid.
That's almost as nefarious as sneaking a newborn Kenyan infant into the U.S. to get hold of an American B.C. making it an American Marxist/Socialist citizen.

As a card carrying Democrat, when in public I have to deny that the only muteness and silence is from the media who under reports such things, unless they come across a rare white on black crime they use promote to fan the flames, no pun towards Obama intended.
By the way, were you in the second video, and maybe took a day off from posting?
what is it with you folks and the 'rare' white on black crime?

you should be worried about the epidemic of white on white crime. by democrats. who love the 2nd. who use 30 round clips to show that they love the 2nd. and who hate white people who are probably republicans.
