I am President Barack Obama, the President of the United States of AMERICA !!!!” Cashier:“Yes sir, I know who you are, but with all the regulations and monitoring of the banks because of impostors and forgers and requirements of the Dodd/Frank legislation, etc., I must insist on seeing ID.”
Obama: Just ask anyone here at the bank who I am and they will tell you. Everybody knows who I am.”
Cashier:“I am sorry Mr. President but these are the bank rules and I must follow them.” Obama:“I am urging you to please, cash this check.”
Cashier:“Look Mr. President, here is an example of what we can do. One day, Tiger Woods came into the bank without ID. To prove he was Tiger Woods he pulled out his putter and made a beautiful shot across the bank into a cup. With that shot we knew him to be Tiger Woods and cashed his check. Another time, Andre Agassi came in without ID.
He pulled out his tennis racquet and made a fabulous shot whereas the tennis ball landed in my cup. With that shot we cashed his check. So, Mr. President, what can you do to prove that it is you, and only you, as the President of the United States ?”
Obama stands there thinking, and thinking, and finally says,“Honestly, my mind is a total blank, there is nothing that comes to my mind. I can’t think of a single thing. I have absolutely no idea what to do and I don’t have a clue.

Those girls who choose to serve would enlist, for the rest, there's no need to register, IMO. My eldest daughter joined the Army fresh out of high school and got out just as the first Gulf War erupted. She's kind of ambivalent about women in action, she says they'd never qualify to begin with.
God bless your daughter.

As for women in combat, I feel that only a very small number would qualify, even if faced with less rigid requirements.

As for selective service, IMO we either require it for all or no one.

Historical Highlights
The Civil Rights Bill of 1866
April 09, 1866
On this date, the (R)House overrode President Andrew Johnson’s veto of the Civil Rights Bill of 1866 with near unanimous Republican support, 122 to 41, marking the first time Congress legislated upon civil rights.
First introduced by Senate Judiciary Chairman Lyman Trumbull of Illinois, the bill defined all persons born in the United States (except Native Americans) as natural American citizens. The legislation granted all citizens the right to enjoy “full and equal benefit of all laws and proceedings for the security of person and property.”
To Radical Republicans, who believed the federal government had a role in shaping a multiracial society in the postwar South, the measure seemed the next logical step after the ratification of the 13th Amendment on December 18, 1865 (which abolished slavery).
Representative Henry Raymond of New York noted that the legislation was “one of the most important bills presented to this House for its action.” President Johnson disagreed with the level of federal intervention implied by the legislation, calling it “another step, or rather a stride, toward centralization and the concentration of all legislative power in the national Government” in his veto message. The Civil Rights Bill of 1866 proved to be the opening salvo of the showdown between the 39th Congress (1865–1867) and the President over the future of the former Confederacy and African-American civil rights.

Synopsis
Born on December 29, 1808, in Raleigh, North Carolina, Andrew Johnson(D) became the 17th president of the United States upon the assassination of President Abraham Lincoln in April 1865. His lenient Reconstruction policies toward the South, and his vetoing of Reconstruction acts, embittered the Radical Republicans in Congress and led to his political downfall and impeachment, though he was acquitted.
http://www.biography.com/people/andrew-johnso...
What seems to either escape you, or you're too obtuse to admit, is that in those days, the republican party was what today is the Democratic Party. Unless, of course, you think Lincoln was a member of the Democratic Party.

"As President,[Lincoln] built the Republican Party into a strong national organization."

Cartel Kingpin Chicago's New Public Enemy No. 1
The label was first given to Al Capone and hasn't been used since Prohibition
By Michael Tarm
| Thursday, Feb 14, 2013 | Updated 9:40 AM CST

Authorities in Chicago are naming a drug kingpin in Mexico as the city's Public Enemy No. 1 — a label first given to gangster Al Capone and one that hasn't been used since Prohibition.

Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman is being singled out for his role as leader of the powerful Sinaloa cartel, which supplies the bulk of narcotics sold in the city, according to the Chicago Crime Commission and the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration.

"Not since the Chicago Crime Commission's first Public Enemy No. 1 has any criminal deserved this title more than Joaquin Guzman," J.R. Davis, president of 94-year-old Chicago Crime Commission, said in remarks prepared for an announcement later Thursday.

It was the Chicago Crime Commission that designated Capone Public Enemy No. 1 in 1930. The non-government body that tracks city crime trends called other people public enemies, but Capone was the only one to ever be its No. 1.

Your insistence on remaining dense and ignorant is a characteristic typical of a die-hard Republican. You represent your party well.

You failed to account for inflation for the years 2002 - 2012. At about 3% per year, that means that in today's dollars Bush's $2 trillion budget would be about $3.09 trillion (compared to Obama's $3.5 trillion). That represents a difference of nearly $4.1 billion. The upshot of this means that in real dollars, the budget has not increased all that much over 10 years.

Second, you failed to mention that the single biggest source of the budget is the national defense (the military), running, on average over the ten years, at 42%.

Is It Fair For People On Food Stamps To Buy Prime Rib And Lobster While Working Families Barely Survive?

Michael Snyder
Economic Collapse
Feb 14, 2013

Should we all quit working and jump on board the Obama gravy train? Of course I am being facetious, but when you are barely surviving does there come a point when it just becomes easier to give up and totally rely on the government? Today, the federal government runs nearly 80 different means-tested welfare programs, and many state and local governments have their own welfare programs on top of that. If you become an expert on those programs and you learn how to game the system, can you live more comfortably than someone that lives honestly and works as hard as they can and yet still makes less than 10 dollars an hour? Now, right from the outset of this article, let me make it abundantly clear that I do not believe that most people are abusing the system. As I have written about over and over, the number of Americans living in poverty is rapidly increasing because there are not enough jobs. There are not enough jobs because we are shipping millions of them out of the country to the other side of the globe, and we are also losing millions of jobs to technology. There have always been those that need our help, and because of the foolish decisions that we have made as a nation, the ranks of the poor will continue to expand. But it is also true that there are some people out there that are very brazenly abusing the system. For example, is it really fair for people on food stamps to buy prime rib and lobster while many working families barely survive? People like that are taking advantage of their fellow Americans, and they are making it harder for the people that really need the help to be able to get it.

Do you have a source for that claim and is it broken down a little better? "Public assistance" covers a hell of a lot of ground there...I believe it may be true on some forms but not for every form of "public assistance" or as a whole.
as I understood RP, as with the election and office of the Pres, Senator or Rep, he was talking about FEDERAL policies and programs.

and, the Federal Constitution and ITS limitations.

speak about doing away with ANY Fed Govt law, policy or prog and the Progressives go batshit crazy about hating the poor, minorities, gays, illegals/immigrants, etc...

that speak as if their is NOTHING else BUT the FG!

as if the States and Local govts and the people that run them do NOT exist or, somehow, do not have the same capacity to 'govern' as those elected to National offices.

some States had Jim Crow laws... but, NOT all States. that fact seems to elude the brainiacs that worship at the feet of Wilsonian Progressivism.

some States have no NEED for an Income Tax... like the FG before the 20th century. THAT fact also seems to elude them.

or the Rep Party IS the Party that freed the slaves AND restored the Union... those two Historical facts need not apply.

if posters on here today OPPOSE Big, BIGGER FG, they must have supported it when a different Pres of a different Party or COLOR was in charge.

what IF they did? yesterday? can't people CHANGE? their political or ideological minds? don't they believe in EVOLUTION?

they certainly talk like they do when it comes to societal change, don't they? maybe they think ONLY themselves, the ELITE, are capable of future enlightenment?

it's like one cannot speak of the VALUE of marriage, traditional marriage, AND not be either a racist or a homophobe.

the value of WORK versus welfare AND not be a racist or hater of the less fortunate or a sexist.

defend the Constitution, the CURRENT version, and NOT want to re-introduce slavery or male dominance.

hell, one can no longer defend being American without being labeled SOMETHING derogatory!

'America: Love It or Leave It.' we overlooked 'Transform It', didn't we?

look at WHAT we have become...

There are way too many Anti-Americans and Anti-Patriots on this thread. Gone from discussion is the threat of the Illegal mex and/or Illegal alien. I see a handful of Pro-Americans like myself making positive comments about ridding ourselves of this foreign invader. Let's be thinking about evils these invaders have done, are doing, and will do for at least a couple of years to come. Then we'll put the hammer to them, soon.

So you’re implying that the Muslims’ invisible super powerful friend provoked his followers to kill a Christian and thereby deliver a single instance of where their invisible super powerful friend defeated the Christian invisible super power friend?

If you’re not happy with this analysis, then you reject the idea of the existence of invisible super powerful friends.

If you accept the analysis, then you belong with your like-minded comrades, in a mental institution.

Or maybe you mentioned Tanzania because you not-so-secretly believe that black Africans are just a bunch of savages (implying that white folk are just better, cleaner, and purer)?

that opinion has NO basis in political Historical FACTS.

what happened is that the Progressives INFILTRATED the Democratic Party FIRST. the Progressives learned a LOT watching the National Socialists, etc during the 30's. the Nat'l Soc's adopted MUCH of the Progressive ideas and implemented them... maybe TOO rapidly, too overtly.
whilst the Rep Party pretty much RESISTED such UN-American ideologies (Marxism, socialism AND Progressivism). see Teddy Roosevelt and HIS brand of Republican Progressivism.

remember, it WAS the 50's Rep Party that FIRST tried to pass comprehensive Civil Rights laws and were stymied (STOPPED) by the Dems (see Eisenhower's Admins).

it WAS Ike that warned US of the Military/Industrial Complex.

it WAS LBJ that escalated VN... that STILL had to twist many a Dixie-crats' arms to get his Great Society passed into law.(Dixie-crats were those old Democrats that still clung to the Jim Crow-era of the Southern Democratic Party. they have been replaced with Progressive Dems or lib/moderate Reps today.)

it WAS a Rep, Nixon, that ENDED our decades-old involvement in SE Asia, wasn't it? and, opened Communist China.

our current pol problems are NOT right/left or even Rep/Dem. it is a WAR of ideologies: Americanism versus Progressivism.

for decades, Progressives have moved UNDERGROUND and taken over our colleges, influenced out K-12 public schools thru teacher training, unions and TEXTBOOKS. no NAZI screw-ups for THESE Progressives. NO overt Revolutions like Castro, Che, Mao, Stalin or Lenin.

NO, much more insidious methods. make THEIR ideology the ideology of the MASSES. but, what MASSES? here, in post WWII American, there were NO serfs or peasants or disenfranchised classes. like in Cuba, China or Russia.

not UNTIL after the mid-sixties, that is. NOW we have some 25 million down-trodden MASSES, don't we? a PERMANENT UNDER class... ripe for the exploiting. and all of those too easily persuaded, guilt-ridden, politically correct sheeple, too.

YET, those 'duped' ones never seem to realize what happened to the OTHER liberated MASSES, do they? the Viet Namese and Cuban boat people just don't register, do they? the 1000s shot in the back trying to FLEE the Soviet nations. the political prisoners and protesters in China. the millions of illegals 'yearning' for something better across the Rio Bravo.

WHERE will those future people's go?

“There’s a point at which you’ve milked a story so much you look like withered boob. Move on,” Hari Sevugan tweeted Thursday morning, reacting to news that Menendez is still welcome at White House negotiations regarding immigration reform.
