I'm not talking about Obama specifically and Congress didn't hit its "standstill" until 2011, four years after the D's took over.
Face reality....a couple reminders:

03/28/08

"As this year's congressional session closes out, obstructionism by the Republican minority reached a fever pitch and effectively stymied much of the Democrats' legislative program. In just the past few weeks alone, two bills that made up a major part of the Democratic agenda were killed through GOP parliamentary maneuvers.

On December 7, Republicans derailed an energy bill that would have reduced dependence on foreign oil, by denying it the 60 votes it needed to make it through the Senate. Democrats were forced to pass a watered-down measure. A few days later, a bill that would have expanded government-provided health insurance for children made it through the Senate but succumbed to President Bush's veto.

The two episodes underscored what has become an epidemic of gridlock within the halls of government. Indeed, a recent study by the progressive-research organization, Campaign for America's Future, claims that "conservatives in the U.S. Senate" have set a "modern-day record for obstruction." Only half way through the 110th Congress there have been 62 cloture votes to move beyond a filibuster, one more than the previous record set during the entirety of the 107th Congress in 2002..... But neither party's ideological base is much interested in compromise."

"At some point you just keep putting it off, there is going to be an explosion among the electorate or a third party."

The Angry Young Black Man is a stupid and dangerous stereotype that is still promoted to this day by rappers and the Jesse Sharpton KKK crowd.

Promoting this sort of trash is profitable in many ways. Power and money are two that readily come to mind.

Trayvon fell for this crap, too.

Only a FOX lemming would infer that the Obama administration has used the "State Secrets" BS more than the Bush/Cheney administration. And only an absolute moron wouldn't recognize the necessity for the State to keep some of their tactics from the public. This is just another example of your habitual whining.
Only a Liberal lemming would infer that the Obama administration has not used the "State Secrets" BS more than the Bush/Cheney administration.

All it means is that no system is foolproof. What is accomplished by the general public being privy to all national security programs? Our enemies or terror groups are being educated in our weak points. Nidal was suspect; however, do we arrest every person who is acting weird ? He was a US citizen in the military.
The Boston bombers story is intriguing and I'm not convinced that the Russians actually warned anyone; perhaps they were sent on their mission by the Russians, and furthermore may be connected to the Syria debacle. Anyone who trusts Putin and the Ruusians is insane.
If you are ever caught walking into a voting booth, you should be arrested, fined and imprisoned for treachery and treason.

CASINO CRONY KICKBACK: Reid, Heller Slip Las Vegas Tourism Handout into Immigration Bill

Sunday, June 23, 2013

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) and Sen. Dean Heller (R-NV) have inserted a provision that amounts to little more than a handout to Las Vegas casinos into the repackaged immigration reform bill, Breitbart News has learned. This provision, a brazen example of crony capitalism, was inserted into the immigration law enforcement section of the bill despite the fact that it has nothing whatsoever to do with “immigration” or “law enforcement.”

On page 66 of the repackaged bill, the following provision appears:

“CORPORATION FOR TRAVEL PROMOTION.—Sec- 9(d)(2)(B) of the Travel Promotion Act of 2009 (22 U.S.C. 2131(d)(2)(B)) is amended by striking ‘‘For each of fiscal years 2012 through 2015,’’ and inserting ‘‘For each fiscal year after 2012.”

The Travel Promotion Act (TPA) of 2009 allows the Secretary of the U.S. Treasury to spend up to $100 million on promoting travel to specific areas of the country. If the provision Reid and Heller inserted into the proposed immigration reform legislation becomes law, the benefits of the TPA would be extended indefinitely.

When the Travel Promotion Act was passed in 2009, the Las Vegas Casino industry and the Las Vegas Strip officially thanked Reid for passing it. Among others, Bally’s Casino ran an advertisement on their electronic billboard on the Strip thanking Reid for its passage, a billboard Reid promoted on his website.

Welcome to the Obama economy, where full-time jobs are scarce because employees are a liability.
I want this president to come back and face the music.

This president screwed us over with Obamacare. He screwed us over with the IRS taking over Obamacare who took his cues to go after his enemies.

This president is getting his fair share of scrutiny abroad, but I want him back here ASAP to deal with the mess he created here and be scrutinzed by us Americans who he royally screwed over.

You are exactly right. Employees have become a liability thanks to Obamacare screwing over the private sector with Obamacare.

I'm surprised you're not wearing a tin foil hat.

From your article:

"Drones for hire are used on Hollywood film sets (to get that overhead shot cheaply), to create promotional videos for real estate and to help farmers crop dust and keep a bird's-eye view on livestock....But once you get paid for taking an aerial picture, it all becomes illegal."

SA whistleblower Thomas Drake was charged for espionage in April 2010 after he communicated information on surveillance programs to a Baltimore Sun reporter.

For disclosing classified information on FBI wiretaps to a blogger, FBI translator named Shamai Leibowitz was charged under the Espionage Act.

Pfc. Bradley Manning was charged with multiple violations of the Espionage Act in July 2010 after disclosing US government information to WikiLeaks.

Stephen Kim, a former State Department contractor, was charged in August 2010 for revealing classified information on North Korea to Fox News reporter James Rosen.(Rosen was labeled an “aider, abettor and co-conspirator” in the leak.)

In December 2010, a former CIA officer, Jeffrey Sterling, was charged under the Espionage Act after he communicated with New York Times reporter James Risen about Iran’s nuclear program in the 1990s.(The Obama Justice Department has fought in the courts to have a judge require Risen to testify against Sterling.)

John Kiriakou, a former CIA officer, was charged under the Espionage Act in January 2012 after he shared information related to a rendition operation with reporter Matthew Cole.

A much lesser-known individual, James Hitselberger, a former Navy linguist, was charged with violating the Espionage Act for providing classified documents to the Hoover Institution at Stanford University.

The Espionage Act charges were dropped in the cases of Drake, Kiriakou and Leibowitz. Manning has pled guilty to lesser offenses but not the espionage charges. Hitselberger, Kim and Sterling’s cases are all still pending.[Kiriakou's serving a 30-month sentence in a prison in Loretto, Pennsylvania, after pleading guilty to violation of the Intelligence Identities Protection Act.]

Four things had to happen for Fuku to happen, had any one not happened we wouldn't be talking about it. Beyond design capacity earthquake and tsunami, loss of off-site power, and loss of back up generators. Even then it would have been contained to to a mere financial disaster had Tepco officers not been so afraid of fines, sanctions, and the regulator's ire that they wouldn't vent the hydrogen that was accumulating in the Reactor Buildings. The reactor vessels performed despite the severity of the circumstances, it was humans that fcked the pooch. Meanwhile, since the disaster the entire US fleet's being retro-fitted with the lessons learned from Fuku.
So you shut down the reactor (for whatever reason) and lose electricity.

Now what? From what I can see, still the same results.
