That is pure nonsense. You would have never viewed it as obstruction unless you supported a far Left ideology. But, you didn't. It is becoming very obvious to me that you want to be with the "popular" crowd. Now that the Obama is a lame duck, you find yourself in a hopeless position.
Thank you for your opinions son....

The Republican-led House has passed more than 15 bills that will spur job growth while the Democratic-led Senate has failed to act.
House Passed Jobs Bills
H.R. 910, the Energy Tax Prevention Act - restricting the EPA to implement burdensome new rules and regulations on American businesses that will have a significant negative impact on America’s economy while having no positive impact on global temperatures.
H. J. Res. 37, Disapproval of FCC’s Net Neutrality Act - prohibits the FCC from imposing net neutrality regulations on Internet providers crippling competition, restrict innovation, reduce employment and raise costs for all consumers..
H.R. 2018, the Clean Water Cooperative Federalism Act - would allow each state to make determinations relating to the State's water quality standards. This would reduce the federal government’s power over individual state’s water quality standards and increase job growth.
H.R. 1315, Consumer Financial Protection & Soundness Improvement Act - increase accountability to help prevent harmful job-killing regulations.
H.R. 2587, Protecting Jobs from Government Interference Act - prohibits the National Labor Relations Board from ordering any employer to close, relocate or transfer employment under any circumstance.
H.R. 2401, Transparency in Regulatory Analysis of Impacts on the Nation (TRAIN ACT)- would push back against the EPA's unconstitutional, outrageous rules and regulations that raise energy prices for consumers, destroy jobs and increase dependence on foreign sources of energy.
H.R. 2681, Cement Sector Regulatory Relief Act - prohibits EPA regulations from coming into effect which would place burdensome regulations on the cement industry and stop the unnecessary cement MACT rule which will cost thousands of jobs and hamper economic growth.
Others:
H.R. 872, the Reducing Regulatory Burdens Act
H.R. 2250, EPA Regulatory Relief Act
H.R. 2273, Coal Residuals Reuse and Management Act
H.R. 1230, Restarting American Offshore Leasing Now Act
H.R. 1229, Putting the Gulf of Mexico Back to Work Act
H.R. 1231, Reversing President Obama’s Offshore Moratorium Act
H.R. 2021, the Jobs and Energy Permitting Act of 2011 - eliminate needless permitting delays stalling important energy production opportunities off the coast of Alaska requiring EPA to take final action – granting or denying a permit – within six months.
H.R. 1938, North American-Made Energy Security Act - Keystone Pipeline
lol! The place where only the majority lead can bring a bill to vote.

Yep! You can cut out everyone else according to them!

Oh... so you're saying he didn't follow the AUMF guidelines then?

Wouldn't that make him illegal based on the stroke of the pen?

Magic Negro himself has finally backed off his Bush-Bashing 6 years into his failed Presidency. You can only blame the last guy so much before the dead skunk becomes all yours.

So take a hint from the Magic Marxist Boy and start laying blame at the feet of the Clueless One like the rest of America does.

Light reading for you if you can find a minute or two. From the PBS website and an article entitled "Origins of the Written Bible".

http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/nova/ancient/origins-...

This part was especially interesting to me:

Christianity quickly adopted the codex—the precursor of the modern book. Codices, with bound leaves of pages, appeared in the first century A.D. and became common by the fourth century. The codex could encompass a much more extensive series of texts than a single scroll could contain. In bringing together a collection of scrolls, the codex also defined a set and order of books and made possible a more defined canon. It was with the technological invention of the codex that the "Bible" as a book, that is, the Bible as we know it, first got its physical form. The adoption of the codex probably encouraged the authority of the written Scriptures in the early Church.

The Vulgate

As the centuries after the resurrection unfolded, the dominant language spoken in the Roman Empire began to change. No longer was Greek the dominant language. In 382, Pope Damascus therefore commissioned Jerome (c. 347-420) to translate the Bible into Latin, a task which took him twenty years to complete. This Bible came to be known as the versio vulgata (common translation) and became standard for the Western Church. In English, we call this Bible the Vulgate.

Jerome, detail from Rubens painting - 10885 Bytes

Jerome by Rubens (detail, original in color, click for complete painting)

Jerome's earliest translations of the Hebrew Bible were based upon Origen's revisions of the Septuagint; however around 393 he turned to manuscripts written in the original Hebrew. Augustine argued that, by using Hebrew manuscripts, Jerome was driving a wedge between Christians of the East and West because the Greek-speaking Christians of the East were using the Septuagint.

To illustrate the folly of Jerome's approach, Augustine told him the tale of a bishop from Tripoli who authorized Jerome's new translation for use in his church. When the people heard the Old Testament lesson from Jonah, it was so unfamiliar that they protested the bishop's innovation by rioting in the streets. Augustine saw this as proof that Jerome's “Hebrew” version was a serious mistake.1

Jerome's translation did not achieve wide acceptance until centuries after his death.

Oddly enough, most liberals don't associate the letters "B" and "J" or its meaning with moral and ethical principles.

Not giving an inept radical liberal president everything he what they associate with immoral convictions and unethical principles.

Go figure.

Sorry, I tried. If you read the passage yourself, maybe it will explain itself better than I did.
But there really isn't a contradiction between the two you pointed out.
Just curious though. What do you think about ETs (without evoking Hollyweird's interpretations of them and fictionalizing movies about real people's encounters with them) and their connection to us?
I, myself, am extremely fascinated by all the evidence as well as the caliber and credibility of eye witnesses - astronauts, top retired military, experienced commercial pilots, former FAA directors, etc.,- not to mention the growing number of video clips from around the world - and entire cities seeing massive and mysterious UFOs flying over their city - like in Phoenix and China a few years ago.
It's getting harder to deny they're here than accept it and wonder why. Seems pretty clear to me they've been here since the beginning - even from evidence in the Old Testament.
Any thoughts on the subject?
There is anecdotal evidence for strange bipedal beings all throughout history and even in the Bible(the Nephilim): http://wiki.answers.com/Q/How_tall_were_the_g...

David's Goliath?

The fact that the infamous "Abominable Snowman" video was created by some jerks backs in the 1950's doesn't discount the many sightings made by credible observers.

If you have ever read the true story The Long Walk: The True Story of a Trek to Freedom - http://tinyurl.com/kr9kuy7 you would know that the group of survivors claim to have witnessed a male/female couple of Yeti in Nepal in the high Himalayas - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yeti

Note: it has been claimed that the Polish author, Slavomir Rawicz, did not actually make this trek but fraudulently wrote the book after hearing first hand accounts from the actual survivor whom he had worked with and who was confided to by the actual victim. Nevertheless, the story is true.

American Indian cultures contain stories of giants here in America, too. My point in all of the above is to pose the idea that perhaps the Yeti are not just evolutionary freaks left over form another crook in the Human Family Tree but stranded travelers left here by their captors or masters. These are just thoughts and not claims. You asked for my thoughts.

I have often wondered if Christianity is a localized cultural artifact - localized to this Solar System or to this Galaxy. Why? Well, if we ever get off this planet and get into making space travel a routine event, what happens when we stumble upon another intelligence race of beings(non-Liberals)??

Will the Evangelicals begin sending missionaries to Alpha Centauri to convert the "natives" to Christianity? Or could the opposite happen with little Green Men visiting Earth to convert us to their religious beliefs?

Could this lead to religious wars across the void of the cosmos? Allah and God might become old hat stuff with a Jedi Master Yoda becoming the rage of Earth Churches.

Damn, I wish I had a Spaceship, Holy Water and a few bucks to spare;-)
