Boycott planned for Obama Iftar dinner
http://www.politico.com/blogs/under-the-radar...
A number of prominent Muslim American are vowing to boycott Monday’s Ramadan dinner at the White House — citing domestic spying on Muslims and the Israeli attack on Gaza.
Boycott and protest efforts are actively underway in the wider Muslim American and Arab American communities — with one of the best-known civil rights groups in such circles joining calls to skip the annual Iftar dinner this year.
Good!!

Looks like His Muslim Brothers are seeing him for what he is too!

Trapped on the Border
I came to Texas to document the crisis of undocumented immigrants. Now I’m stuck.
By JOSE ANTONIO VARGAS
July 11, 2014
http://www.politico.com/magazine/story/2014/0...
When my friend Mony Ruiz-Velasco, an immigration lawyer who used to work in the area, saw on my Facebook page that I was in McAllen, she texted me:“I am so glad you are visiting the kids near the border. But how will you get through the checkpoint on your way back?” A curious question, I thought, and one I dismissed. I’ve visited the border before, in California. What checkpoint? What was she talking about?

Of course, I can only travel within the United States and, for identification, when I fly I use a valid passport that was issued by my native country, the Philippines. But each flight is a gamble. My passport lacks a visa. If TSA agents discover this, they can contact CBP, which, in turn, can detain me. But so far, I haven’t had any problems, either because I look the way I do (“You’re not brown and you don’t look like a Jose Antonio Vargas,” an immigration advocate once told me), or talk the way I do—or because, as a security agent at John F. Kennedy International Airport who recognized me said without a hint of irony,“You seem so American.”

<quoted text>would you prefer the economy we had when he took office or the one we have now?
yes, i am a conservative, which is why i deal with facts like that.
President Obama and his paid spokespeople like to point out that the economy is doing better now than during the depths of the last recession, which ended in official records four years ago! But economies always do better in recoveries than during recessions. So that is a very low standard by which to judge Obama’s record.

The real question is how does President Obama’s recovery compare to the other recoveries of other Presidents from other recessions. Since the Great Depression, there have been 11 other recessions in America before this last one. In all those recessions, the economy recovered all jobs lost during the recession an average of 25 months after the recession began. So the job effects of prior post Depression recessions lasted an average of about 2 years. But here we are today, 5½ years, or 67 months, after the recession started, and we still have not recovered all of the jobs lost during the recession.

In addition, middle class incomes have continued to fall during Obama’s recovery, losing even more ground than during the recession. The number in poverty has also continued to soar during Obama’s supposed recovery, to about 50 million, the most in the more than 50 years that Census has been tracking poverty, with the poverty rate up to 16.1%, higher than when the War on Poverty started in 1965. Indeed, despite all of Obama’s rhetoric, inequality has started rising during his Presidency.

These are the reasons why President Obama’s recovery has been commonly characterized as the worst recovery from any recession since the Great Depression.

I heard the president of the Chamber say recently that they will never back another Tea Party candidate and I also heard from some CFR members who do not want Jeb Bush to run because of his failure of a president brother George.

I still think it will be Jeb vs Hillary in 2016.

Wall Street always wins and We The People always lose.

Since 1913, it mattered not who polished the chair in the oval office. They all had CFR advisors (read: handlers), and pretty much did what they were told for the puppet show, except JFK, who proved to be an annoyance to the wealthy and powerful. He wanted to put the power back where it was intended to be (and, incidentally, in his own hands). His murder was an example for all future presidents and politicians to be wary of. Wealth, power, and extortion rule in Washington DC. And they aren't done yet.

The Economic Consequences of Mr. Bush
The next president will have to deal with yet another crippling legacy of George W. Bush: the economy. A Nobel laureate, Joseph E. Stiglitz, sees a generation-long struggle to recoup.
by Joseph E. Stiglitz / December 2007 / http://tinyurl.com/22j48m
When we look back someday at the catastrophe that was the Bush administration, we will think of many things: the tragedy of the Iraq war, the shame of Guantánamo and Abu Ghraib, the erosion of civil liberties. The damage done to the American economy does not make front-page headlines every day, but the repercussions will be felt beyond the lifetime of anyone reading this page.

It works by scanning your brain for signals using the Emotiv EEG device on your head. That device then relays your signals through a brain-computer interface to detect emotions, interest and a slew of other things. It takes some work but, as the video above shows, it also helps you use your Jedi training skills to move objects with just the power of thought.
