I think we have violated the Somali Pirates rights. We should have offered them permanent residence in Cambridge MA. with food stamps, welfare, free rent and an honorary degree in diplomacy. Obama should have intervened and promised to bring their whole clan to Washington for a parade, because we really are denying them a proper education and benefits and jobs because we are bad Americans.

Don't forget Drivers Licenses. They'll need those to drive to the Welfare office to pick up their checks and will need them as ID to cash the checks at the bank. Unless of course they are also given bank accounts to have them direct deposited. This will make it much easier to give them Amnesty when the time comes.

This can all be a part of Obama's "No Alien Left Behind" initiative. After all, Pirates ARGHHHHH People Too!

Amused,
What you really should do is put up the "Mission Accomplished" banner and gloat till the cows come home...while 250 plus people are still being held hostage by Somali pirates.

Oh wait, you're already doing that.
In fact, you specialize in it.

Soetoro must've been put off because this hostage drama interrupted his pizza party and playing with the new dog.

The credit goes to the Navy Seals, not the illegitimate 'administration' in Washington.

" its Time for us step in and end this crisis," its a crisis, wake up, " said Shane Murphy, chief mate aboard the U.S.- flagged Maersk Alabama.
Navy SEAL snipers killed tree animals pirates with single shots shortly after sailor on the Brainbridge saw the hostage - takers " with their heads and shoulders exposed."

WELL DONE NAVY SEALS.

The animals prirate's threat raised fears safety of some 230 foreign sailors in more than dozen ships anchored off lawless monkey Somalia.
WHO CARE ABOUT THOSE FOREIGN SAILORS, ARE THEY P*USSY!

Amused -

I love how all the talking pudgy heads on Fox news had to eat their hats this week because Obama did what needed to be done, and took decisive action and gave the right amount of latitude to the brave people on the ground to resolve this problem.

All weekend, even during the rescue, we saw Newt, Beck, et al., bloviating about how Obama was going to drag this out and try to "talk them down" and never take any action on this because he's a socialist.

Gosh: who could have expected that our presidential acted, well, presidential, and got the job done?

So instead of just congratulating our armed forces, and chalking this up as a victory for our country, you traitors run around trying to play this off like a loss for our side.

We're at war, and you are either with us or against us. If you don't like the president, that's fine, but the more you talk trash like that about our commander in chief, the more strength it gives to our enemies.

Right?

He'll be the Commander-in-Chief when he proves that he's a Natural Born Citizen, which he can't. He's not.

The entire world knows it but our illustrious mainstream media continues to brush it under the rug.

You want to talk about giving strength to our enemies? The fact that the sheeples in this country voted for someone they knew nothing about is all the strength they need.

God help us!

Oh yeah! I remember hearing some conspiracy theory stuff about this. It all seems so long ago.

Hmmm. I guess the rest of us have moved on and left this one to the tinfoil hat wearing crazies that haunt the dark corners of the interwebz! LOL!!!!!

Can anyone prove they are a natural born citizen? Can you? How would you do it? Show your birth certficate? How would we know it's not a forgery?

For all we know, you could have been born in Canada during one of your mother's weekend sex romps, and then paid off the hospital to pretend you were born in our country.

Is it because he's brown? Is that why he can't be born here?

The truth is you have nothing: no positions, no policy, no thoughts, no contribution. Instead of making our country better, you spread fear, uncertainty, and doubt in hopes of.. well, in hopes of what? Turning the clock back? To when? Before Barack was elected? born?

What's does a perfect United States of America look like to you? Does it include you?
