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

In his book, "Dreams From My Father," Obama indicated he hadn't always been an academic star. Even academic stars don't get into Harvard.
In a Columbia Newsletter's article about Obama's life: "Obama wrote letters to community organizations all around the country asking for a job but received no positive responses for six months until landing a job with a nonprofit in Chicago where he worked in low-income neighborhoods for 3 years."
From there, the timeline went straight to: "In his late 20s, Obama attended Harvard Law School where he received national publicity when he became the first African-American president of Harvard Law Review."
Something is missing - from community organizer for three years after not finding a job for six months to Harvard Law School.
One would naturally think that if he had the grades at Columbia, he wouldn't have had any trouble finding a job. Yet he got into Harvard.
Doesn't the missing piece in this timeline puzzle you too?
You're looking for mysteries where there are none Carol. Barack Obama was one of many college grads who spent time looking for work after graduating. His stint at the Developing Communities Project, run under the auspices of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Chicago was an important stepping stone for him. Schools like Harvard Law often look beyond grades and often weigh actual experience into the mix.
Obama worked with actual people and tried to make their communities stronger and encouraged the younger residents to better themselves. There's nothing wrong with that.

HEY STUPID! Wal-Mart destroys more jobs when they come into a community than they provide. The jobs they provide are so low paying that their employees have to apply for supplemental assistance and food stamps.
• Wal-Mart's intentionally low wages force employees to need approximately $420,000 per year, per store, totaling $2.66 BILLION annually in food stamps and other taxpayer assistance…to survive.
• Wal-Mart's intentionally low wages cost the country HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS of dollars in payroll tax deductions for Federal, State, and Local taxes.
• Wal-Mart's intentionally low wages cost our communities the ability to hire and retain important public service workers like firefighters, police officers, maintenance workers, and teachers.
• Wal-Mart's intentionally low wages cost our communities with their increased need for those same public services they are underfunding.
• Wal-Mart's intentionally low wages and lack of covered benefits cost taxpayers over $1.02 BILLION a year in healthcare costs.
• Wal-Mart's intentionally low wages cost taxpayers as much as $225 MILLION in free and reduced price lunches for school-age children.
• Wal-Mart's intentionally low wages cost taxpayers over $780 MILLION in tax deductions for low-income families.
You're an idiot Jimmy!

Sure moron and the Bible is such a peace loving book. In Book 1 of Samuel God orders Saul to attack the Amalekites "And utterly destroy all that they have, and do not spare them," God says through the prophet Samuel. "But kill both man and woman, infant and nursing child, ox and sheep, camel and donkey."
Let's not forget Joshua's annihilation of Jericho and the slaughter of all its inhabitants.

Now now now.

That's the Old Testament. It doesn't count anymore unless it talks about homosexuality.

When Moses came down off the mountain, God ordered him to kill al the infidels worshiping the Golden Calf.

Republicans today protect those who worship the "Golden Calf" today.

The Golden Calf was made by Aaron for the Israelites to worship; destroyed by Moses; it is now used to refer to anything worshiped undeservedly. Perhaps Farrakhan should announce to the world that Obama is the 'New Messiah' or Golden Calf you Idiot...

The Gospel of Alex Jones

He’s an evangelist for conspiracy theology.

Infowars is a misnomer. At its core, 9/11-truther Alex Jones’s infamous website is not about “info.” It’s about faith. Jones shows less interest in marshaling information to convince people of his various conspiracy theories than in preaching a theology. He’s not your everyday screed-monger. Rather, he’s an evangelist, and he’s looking for converts, and, judging by the size of his audience, he’s pretty good at making them.

Jones’s theories have sometimes gained currency outside Infowars. His website recently reported that the Department of Homeland Security was buying a notable amount of ammunition, suggesting that it was a federal attempt to raise the price of ammunition or create a stockpile for use against an armed uprising by citizens. A number of news outlets reported on the purchases. Representatives Jason Chaffetz (R., Utah) and Jim Jordan (R., Ohio) led a House subcommittee hearing on the matter. And Senator Jim Inhofe (R., Okla.) and Representative Frank Lucas (R., Okla.) introduced legislation pushing for more accountability on ammunition purchases by government agencies. But, as tends to be the case with Infowars’ narratives, it turns out to be a non-issue: The DHS buys large quantities of ammo to use at law-enforcement training centers, and there’s little change in the quantity purchased this year compared with previous years.

Regardless of how you feel about the DHS’s buying ammunition, this could be the year “Alex Jones” becomes a household name.

Jones stands out not for sharing disconnected theories explaining things that have happened in the world; instead, he presents a cosmology that demands full faith and adherence. If you are lukewarm, Alex Jones will spit you out.

Before we get into that, it’s important to bear in mind just how out-there unstable Jones appears to be. This is the man who, after going on a high-speed paranoiac rant on Piers Morgan Tonight about gun control, returned to his Manhattan hotel room to make a video in which he claimed to be under surveillance by hostile government agents. This is the man who proudly describes himself as the nation’s preeminent 9/11-truther. This is the man who, as Alexander Zaitchik put it in a Rolling Stone profile, makes Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck “sound like tea-sipping NPR hosts on Zoloft.”

http://www.nationalreview.com/article/346957/...

Alex Jones has the optimism you can have only if you think everything has already gone to Hell. It’s easy to write him off as a kook and a lunatic, but that’s what they did to Jeremiah. The difference between Jones and Jeremiah, of course, is that Jones appears to be a paranoiac.

It’s all fairly consistent, too — bat-feces crazy, but essentially consistent. Infowars isn’t just a website; it’s a way to live. Alex Jones wants to make you a believer.

Did you read the book?

It was an interesting read.

I am still pondering how regime behaviors in Jakarta in the 60's and 70's, were actually negatively affected or influenced, by anything having anything to do with the United States.
