I'm not saying whether this is bad or good.
The eventual outcome to this is no more cashiers. Sheesh, is there anything good at all about Walmart? I expect next they'll have robots to stock the shelves.

In his book, "Dreams From My Father," Obama indicated he hadn't always been an academic star. Even academic stars don't get into Harvard.

In a Columbia Newsletter's article about Obama's life: "Obama wrote letters to community organizations all around the country asking for a job but received no positive responses for six months until landing a job with a nonprofit in Chicago where he worked in low-income neighborhoods for 3 years."

From there, the timeline went straight to: "In his late 20s, Obama attended Harvard Law School where he received national publicity when he became the first African-American president of Harvard Law Review."

Something is missing - from community organizer for three years after not finding a job for six months to Harvard Law School.

One would naturally think that if he had the grades at Columbia, he wouldn't have had any trouble finding a job. Yet he got into Harvard.

Doesn't the missing piece in this timeline puzzle you too?

Bush cancels Europe trip amid calls for his arrest

""Will George W. Bush set foot in Europe again in his lifetime?

A planned trip by Bush to speak at the Switzerland-based United Israel Appeal later this week has been canceled after several human rights groups called for Swiss authorities to arrest Bush and investigate him for authorizing torture. Bush has traveled widely since leaving office, but not to Europe, where there is a strong tradition of international prosecutions.

The Swiss group and Bush’s spokesman claim that it was threats of protest, not of legal action, that prompted the cancellation. But facing protests is nothing new for Bush. What was different about this trip was that groups including Amnesty International and the Center for Constitutional Rights argued that Switzerland, as a party to the UN Convention against Torture, is obligated to investigate Bush for potential prosecution.

Amnesty’s memo to Swiss authorities cites, among other things, Bush’s admission in his own memoir that he approved the use of waterboarding. From Amnesty’s press release:

“To date, we’ve seen a handful of military investigations into detentions and interrogations in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Guantánamo. But none of these has had the independence and reach necessary to investigate high-level officials such as President Bush,” said Salil Shetty, Secretary General of Amnesty International.

“Meanwhile, there has been virtually zero accountability for crimes committed in the CIA’s secret detention program, which was authorized by then-President Bush.”"

Hope you nitwits are proud.

You supported an alcoholic President who is an International Criminal to boot.

He's afraid to travel to Europe, under threat of being arrested.

And you nitwits believed he choked on a pretzel and fainted!! Couldn't have anything to do with the quart of Vodka he'd just consumed, could it??

Nice job, morons!! Bush lied, Americans and Iraqi's died, for a second act he destroyed the economy!!

Nice job, Dubya!!

You must be ashamed of yourself for being dead wrong for over four years now.

I note you haven't a word to say when th emarket hits new highs.

When the market goes down, you're all over it like a cheap suit!!

Housing is improving by leaps and bounds, the economy is humming, all in spite of Repugnant attempts (sequester) to destroy the economy and blame it on Obama.

You lost. Rmoney lost. Your side if filled with lying losers like Waxturds!!
