A president who smoked pot or drank too much or played punk rock music in college isn't that unusual.
But most American presidents didn't seek out Marxist professors in college or discuss writers like Frantz Omar Fanon whose writings were influenced by Marxism.
None of them did, as a matter of fact.
Fanon's, The Wretched of the Earth, analyzes the role of class, race, national culture and violence in the struggle for national liberation.
Sounds all too familiar.
Radical influences and a radical ideology ingrained in you all of your life isn't a phase of youth you grow out of.
Your continued vocal support for destroying the republican party is noted and appreciated.

President Obama might not have been elected twice without your support.

Thanks and Keep Post the above!!!

Now sit down and shut up or we'll take your cattle, kill your family and empty your bank accounts.
I'm convinced that these NSA, IRS, BLM, EPA headlines are demonstrations of the All Seeing Eye of government and warnings to those who don't comply. Not only has nothing been done to curb their power, they continue as if nothing's even wrong.

We are still trying to recover from the travesty of the eight years of the Bush W Administration.
"President Barack Obama had spoken out about the need to reform the criminal-justice system, and clearly felt passionately about entrenched racial biases that resulted in people being treated unfairly by the courts based solely on the color of their skin. But in his crowded first term, his only foray into criminal justice was encouraging lawmakers to pass the Fair Sentencing Act, which he signed in 2010, to reduce the sentencing disparity between crack and powder cocaine. The disparity had the effect of punishing black drug offenders far more harshly than white ones, and was widely accepted to be outdated and unfair.(Obama's clemency push is meant to correct a broad set of inequities in the criminal-justice system, not just those that are racial. Scrivner, who might benefit from the program, is white.)
When it came to using his only unfettered presidential power — to pardon felons and to reduce the sentences of prisoners — Obama was incredibly stingy in his first term. Vanita Gupta, deputy legal director of the American Civil Liberties Union, calls his record on mercy "abysmal." He pardoned just 22 people — fewer than any modern president — and commuted the sentence of just one. An applicant for commutation like Scrivner had just a 1-in-5,000 chance of getting a reduced sentence with Obama in his first term — compared with a 1-in-100 chance under Presidents Reagan and Clinton, according to an analysis by ProPublica.
According to former and current administration officials, the fault for this lay mostly at the feet of the Office of the Pardon Attorney, a small corner of the Justice Department that sifts through thousands of pardon and commutation petitions each year. The pardon attorney, former military judge Ronald Rodgers, sends his recommendations of whether or not to grant the petitions to the Deputy Attorney General’s office, which then sends them on to the White House. The pardon attorney was recommending that the president deny nearly every single petition for a pardon or a reduced sentence, according to one senior official in the Obama administration."

Frozen in Time: the Ice Core Record

To pry climate clues out of the ice, scientists began to drill long cores out of the ice sheets in Greenland and Antarctica in the late 1960s. By the time Alley and the GISP2 project finished in the early 1990s, they had pulled a nearly 2-mile-long core (3,053.44 meters) from the Greenland ice sheet, providing a record of at least the past 110,000 years. Even older records going back about 750,000 years have come out of Antarctica. Scientists have also taken cores from thick mountain glaciers in places such as the Andes Mountains in Peru and Bolivia, Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, and the Himalayas in Asia.

The ice cores can provide an annual record of temperature, precipitation, atmospheric composition, volcanic activity, and wind patterns. In a general sense, the thickness of each annual layer tells how much snow accumulated at that location during the year. Differences in cores taken from the same area can reveal local wind patterns by showing where the snow drifted. More importantly, the make-up of the snow itself can tell scientists about past temperatures. As with marine fossils, the ratio of oxygen isotopes in the snow reveals temperature, though in this case, the ratio tells how cold the air was at the time the snow fell. In snow, colder temperatures result in higher concentrations of light oxygen.

The problem is far more widespread than you realize. Because of Republican stonewalling on economic recovery stimulus legislation and passing job-killing bills that benefits only the very rich in this country they are forcing more Americans , black , white , hispanic, asian, indigenous peoples , etc. to resort to more desperate measures to earn a living , even by selling drugs if that is what it takes to pay the usury high rates credit card bills, mortgage , rent, family food and clothing bill.

We haven't had a Democratic controlled Congress since 2011 when the Republicans took control of the House and started blocking any kind of legislation that would have actually helped the economy. Having another "senior moment" Carol?
During Bush's last two years the Democrats had a one vote majority in the Senate and a slim margin in the House; not enough to affect anything.
I know I have posted this before but it doesn't hurt to repeat it...It is a lie that Obama had a Democratic controlled congress during his first two years.

In the Senate, it takes 60 votes to pass legislation. There were NOT 60 democrats in the Senate in Obama's first two years. It's the very reason the stimulus bill did not pass until Obama traded job-creating for tax cuts. The absences of Kennedy, Franken and Byrd permitted Republicans to make history in the number of times they filibustered. It wasn’t until August- 2009 that Senator Kirk was appointed to Kennedy’s seat, and Democrats finally had the 60 votes necessary to override the Republican filibuster. That filibuster-proof 60 votes lasted exactly 4 months – Not 2 years. Not 1 year. Not 6 months.

Another twist in the federal campaign finance case against the conservative author Dinesh D'Souza: prosecutors in the case are relying on a secret recording made by the husband of a woman who has been romantically involved with D'Souza.

The woman, Denise Joseph, was one of the two alleged straw donors D'Souza used to funnel $20,000 to the Senate campaign of Republican Wendy Long, who challenged Sen. Kirsten Gillbrand (D-NY) in 2012. The donations led to D'Souza's indictment in January on one count of making contributions of more than $10,000 in the names of others and one count of causing false statements. D'Souza has since maintained his innocence.

With D'Souza's trial a few weeks away, The New York Times reported Tuesday on a dispute that has played out in court papers over whether the case was politically motivated. D'Souza's attorney has argued that his client was "targeted … because of his consistently caustic and highly publicized criticism" of President Obama. Federal prosecutors have called the idea "entirely without merit," and have argued that D'Souza knew what he was doing was wrong.

According to the Times, prosecutors have also said that they have obtained a secret recording made independently last October by Joseph's husband. Joseph was "recorded as saying that Mr. D’Souza had told her that if he were charged he might plead guilty, but would initially plead not guilty because that 'gives him a window of opportunity to get his story out there,'" according to the Times.

D'Souza's relationship status has been murky for some time. In October 2012, after news of his relationship with Joseph became public, D'Souza said that he and his wife, Dixie D'Souza, had filed for divorce. But the Times on Tuesday referred to D'Souza's wife in the present tense, and described Joseph as "a woman Mr. D’Souza was involved with romantically around the time of the donations." In an interview with Business Insider in March, D'Souza "declined to answer a question about whether he was currently married to either woman."

"We need to be as elected officials held to a higher standard," said Florida state Rep. Dane Eagle (R-Cape Coral) last month after sponsoring a bill that would require legislators to submit to drug testing.

Just before 2 a.m. Monday morning, Eagle was arrested in Tallahassee on suspicion of DUI. Police first spotted him pulling out of a Taco Bell in his black SUV before he narrowly avoided hitting a median, then stopped in an intersection, veered into a curb and ran a traffic light, according to arrest documents.

Hero Rancher’s Family Has Been On Nevada Land Since Forever Or At Least 1948
So you remember how Cow Freedom Hero Nevada Rancher Cliven Bundy’s family has been on the land that they stole fair and square from the Indians since the 1870s and therefore all of his rights to graze his cattle predate any dumb “Bureau of Land Management” or “grazing fees” or “federal interference in Our Freedom”? Some bright smartasses at Las Vegas Teevee Station KLAS decided, very unfairly we should add, to go and look in the Clark County records, just to be communist troublemakers, and they discovered that in reality,
Clark County property records show Cliven Bundy’s parents moved from Bundyville, Arizona and bought the 160 acre ranch in 1948 from Raoul and Ruth Leavitt.
Water rights were transferred too, but only to the ranch, not the federally managed land surrounding it. Court records show Bundy family cattle didn’t start grazing on that land until 1954.
There is almost certainly a very good logical explanation for those records that doesn’t involve Cliven Bundy being a goddamned liar, and we can hardly wait for Fox News and Sean Hannity to find it.

"Cliven Bundy's 'ancestral rights' are every bit as authentic as the gondolas at The Venetian"'
