And I'm the slug...lol
Obviously first class on your plane doesn't go to Oakland Hieghts...
2 days after taking office...what a gutsy snap decision, wasn't it? No forethought, no what ifs, just do it! I am the chosen one and I order it done...uhhh, wait a minute, where are we going to relocate everyone to...what ramifications does it have on the law of our land, what if.....awwww phurk it! Just close the sumbitch on my order...and while we're at it, what the freak... let me sign a couple more...lets see.....hmmmm...ooooh, I got it...NO MORE TORTURE, back to ding things strictly by the army field manual....and heck frankie, while my pen is hot lets sign an order for some one...no wait...why have one persn do it when we can put a WHOLE ENTIRE task force to work...yea-yeah...a task force, wait EVEN FREAKIN BETTER...we'll call it an interagency task force and we'll order it to lead a systematic review of detention policies and procedures and a review of all individual cases...yea-yeah, that should do it!
The task force can provide OBUMBLE with information in terms of how we are able to deal with the disposition of the detainees that are currently in Guantanamo, thsoe so hideous and evil that we cannot transfer them to other countries, for be VRY VERY AFRAID that they could pose a serious danger to the United States if released...
OBUMBLE HAD A NATIONAL SIGNING DAY THAT SECOND DAY, DIT'N HE FRANCIS???? Hail man, he even had enough ink to sign a memorandum requesting a delay in the long awaited Supreme Court's hearing of the case of Ali Saleh Kahlah al-Marri...that worked out great dit'n it francis? Al-Marri plea bargained what? A 15 year deal with credit for time spent? That means...EVEN THOUGH OBUMBLE SAID, AND I QUOTE: Al-Marri is clearly a dangerous individual...that this piece of shi'ite crapola gets out in 2016 at the latest...hail man, maybe Obumble will by the poor slug a home next to his?
Like Isaid, thank god being stupid is illegal...

And before you blame the FAILED executive orders on the rightwingnutz...don't foget woTHE ONE's biggest suporter of closing Gitmo was...although the MC'ster did think the pen and ink change was wee bit hasty...along with repubtard rightwingnut Lindsey Graham...
"The decision to close the detention facility received immediate backing from Obama's general election opponent, Arizona Republican Sen. John McCain.
McCain, in a joint statement with South Carolina GOP Sen. Lindsey Graham, said he supported Obama's decision to "reaffirm America's adherence to the Geneva Conventions, and begin a process that will, we hope, lead to the resolution of all cases of Guantanamo detainees."
On CNN's "Larry King Live," McCain said he thought the new president may have been hasty in the decision and should have taken the time to consider everything associated with closing the camp before forcing himself into a timetable..."
So how did that timetable work out for the chosen one, francis?

Obama Ignored Reality...... Two years ago, Obama "dismissed the opposition to closing the prison as partisan politics designed to create a 'climate of fear'... In reality, there were serious roadblocks to closing Guantanamo, ones that the administration still hasn’t been able to overcome. It wasn’t Obama’s critics who 'refuse[d] to deal with these issues' back in 2009, as he claimed. It was Obama himself who ignored the legitimate problems with his proposal and is now being forced to eat his words two years later."
Hey francis, someone should have told the monkey to check out the legality options before creating task forces and making promises he couldn't keep...how much money did our nation waste on the ONE'S ignorance and snap decision? Never give a monkey a pen and paper, nothing good can come of it...stick to teleprompter scripts written by puppet handlers...class dismissed

BAN AIRPORT SIGNS NOW!
A flight-information sign inside the Birmingham airport fell on a family yesterday, killing a 10-year boy and injuring other family members. Firefighters estimated the arrival-departure sign weighed 300 to 400 pounds, and airport officials aren't sure what caused it to fall. Luke Bresette was pronounced dead at Children's of Alabama hospital, and two other children—thought to be the boy's siblings—were being treated there. Luke's mother, Heather Bresette, is in critical condition at another hospital.

President B.H.Obumble has recently appointed himself Golf Czar.
Major rule changes in the game of golf will become effective November 1, 2013.
This is only a preview as the complete rule book (expect 2716 pages) is being rewritten as we speak.
Here are a few of the changes:
Golfers with handicaps:
- Below 10 will have their green fees increased by 35%.
- Between 11 and 18 will see no increase in green fees.
- Above 18 will get a $20 check each time they play.
The term "gimmie" will be changed to "entitlement" and will be used as follows:
- Handicaps below 10, no entitlements.
- Handicaps from 11 to 17, entitlements for putter length putts.
- Handicaps above 18, if your ball is on the green, no need to putt, just pick it up.
These entitlements are intended to bring about fairness and, most importantly, equality in scoring.
In addition, a Player will be limited to a maximum of one birdie or six pars in any given 18-hole round.
Any excess must be given to those fellow players who have not yet scored a birdie or par.
Only after all players have received a birdie or par from the player actually making the birdie or par, can that player begin to count his pars and birdies again .
The current USGA handicap system will be used for the above purposes, but the term "net score" will be available only for scoring those players with handicaps of 18 and above.
This is intended to "re-distribute" the success of winning by making sure that in all competitions every Player above an 18 handicap will post only "net score" against every other player's "gross score".
These new Rules are intended to CHANGE the game of golf.
Golf must be about Fairness. It should have nothing to do with ability, hard work, practice, and responsibility.
This is the "Right thing to do."
So, please remember; if you shot a round of golf under par, you didn't shoot it yourself. Someone else built that course, and someone else cut the grass so that you could play on it. Someone else built the clubs and the cart.
You need to share with everyone and anyone who made you a successful golfer.

Mayor Bloomberg says surveillance drones are inevitable in NYC:'get used to it'
Governmental use of unmanned surveillance drones has inspired a lot of concern about privacy, but New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg thinks the battle's already over.
In a radio interview this week, Bloomberg said essentially that drones are an inevitable part of our future (and maybe our present), comparing them to the thousands of cameras already located around Manhattan. "What's the difference whether the drone is up in the air or on the building?" he asked.
"We're going into a different world, uncharted... you can't keep the tide from coming in."

Just one...why are we returning?
Over 3,000 US troops have secretly returned to Iraq via Kuwait for missions pertaining to the recent developments in Syria and northern Iraq, Press TV reports.
According to our correspondent, the US troops have secretly entered Iraq in multiple stages and are mostly stationed at Balad military garrison in Salahuddin province and al-Asad air base in al-Anbar province.
Reports say the troops include US Army officers and almost 17,000 more are set to secretly return to Iraq via the same route.
All US troops left Iraq by the end of 2011, after nine years of occupation, as required by a 2008 bilateral security agreement between the two countries. The troops left Iraq for the neighboring Kuwait.
Washington decided to pull out all its troops from Iraq after Baghdad refused to grant legal immunity to the remaining US soldiers.
Washington claims that the only US military presence left in Iraq now is 157 soldiers responsible for training at the US Embassy, as well as a small contingent of marines protecting the diplomatic mission.
Okay, maybe TWO QUESTIONS...why is Obumble lying about the number of US troops currently in Iraq?

I am making a dispassionate plea for the legalization of home ownership of
atomic weapons, based on the freedom to bear arms; the fact that that all
radioactive substances are well contained within the bomb casing itself
(i.e. no leakage); the obvious fact that it's not bombs that kill people,
but bombers; and the need for escalation in the war of protection.
I do not want to appeal to yours sense of charity or goodwill; these have
always been besides the point. Humans were meant to carry weapons;
the first tools of man and woman were hand-axes for smiting the enemy,
and, were it not for these tools, the most intelligent of our species
might already have been killed, tortured, maimed. It is weapons, in other
words, that keep us free, giving us the ability to say whatever we please.
And as it has been pointed out, over and over again, if it were not for
people like me, the rest of you would be enslaved forever.
Private ownership of atomic weaponry in the United States would give us a
competitive edge on others who would take away our freedom! And we cannot
assume our armed forces will protect us everywhere in this huge land of
ours; the dispersion of weaponry would ensure that we could fight along
with them, tooth and nail. It was Darwin who pointed out that the strongest
among us are those with the will to survive, acquiring atomic weaponry
at almost any cost, as guaranteed in our Declaration of Independence
(last part, near the signatures).
Remember: It is bombers who kill, not bombs. There is no reason whatsoever,
logical or illogical, that advanced weapons should not be made
available to the general public. The number of bombs in the entire United
States probably amounts to about four or five demented individuals, who
could not afford even a handgun, much less something on the order of
100,000 kilotons. So I urge you: Write your congressman (forget the women)
or better yet: write the United Nations (United Nations, 1 United Nations
Plaza, New York City). If we all do this, both buyers and sellers will
emerge out of the darkness, and our government will capitulate to, what
after all, is our right and our inheritance.

The Americans are learning how much they are being lied to and there is no transparency as promised by the current administration. How about 2 Congressmen and a potential Presidential candidate on the same stage.
The lame stream media's coverage leaves a lot to be desired.

The Ryan budget is just another one of the GOPers inability to deal with reality! Obviously a budget is important and cutting our deficits matters greatly. But in a country in which a CEO’s salary are 300 times more than their employees’, corporate profits and the stock market are at record highs, jobs are being created at a snail pace and median incomes are sagging while corporate managers receive millions in bonuses, we have far more basic and grave issues to grapple with.
This country has always operated under deficit spending, and there's nothing inherently wrong with that, as long as economic growth outpaces it. Please note that the worst deficit year as a percentage of GNP was 2009 ... the last fiscal year of the George W. Bush presidency, and his lasting legacy.
The United States is like a business whose model for making revenue is failing, trying to save itself by cutting down on travel expenditures and the cost of making photocopies. Sure, we shouldn't overspend. But if we don't figure out what business we're in -- what new industries will create tomorrow's jobs, what kind of new workers we'll need, what kind of infrastructure we must have to be competitive and attract investment -- our deficit problems will seem minor compared with our social and political concerns.
Our most important national discussion should not be about spending but about investment. We need to recognize that some federal programs help grow the economy and weigh the return on investment we will get from these and which are essential to growing the new industries that will be the employers of tomorrow ... and will provide the growth that is the only real solution to our debt issues.
The Ryan budget cuts transportation spending in a country that has neglected its highways and bridges for over half a century. It doesn't plan for the infrastructure spending we will need to respond to the consequences of climate change (like hurricane relief) or anticipate the investment we could make to avoid such problems in the first place. It doesn't discuss how to expand information technology and next-generation energy infrastructure as we must.

LOL...All ready campaigning against our next POTUS? How fresh...
Hey...SPEAKING OF OBUMBLE RACISM...
A poll out this morning shows that a majority of Americans believe the US shouldn't assassinate its own citizens abroad (41% favor the killings, with 52% opposed), which is a little weird, points out Glenn Greenwald at the Guardian, because when the US actually killed citizen Anwar al-Awlaki, it was considered a BIG POLITICAL WIN for President Obumble.
So What happened?
Well, it's possible Americans oppose the killings in the abstract, but not in Awlaki's case, given his infamy. But Greenwald doubts it.
He thinks that for many, the term "Americans" means "their nice neighbors down the street, and anyone else who looks like them, not people with foreign and Muslim-ish names like Anwar al-Awlaki. This decade-long Othering of Muslims has long driven War on Terror politics...
I for one would have thought that the great one Obumble would have changed that image...but nay-nay...anyhoot moving right along...
Does anyone doubt that if Obama's drone bombs were killing nice white British teenagers or smiling blond Swiss infants rather than unnamed Yemenis, Pakistanis, Afghans, and Somalis that the reaction to this sustained killing would be drastically different?
However it should be noted by the righwingnutz that white british teens and blonde swiss infants haven't been involved in to many suicide market bombings in the past several centuries or so...
