Totally agree and how he has failed.. ;-)

It depends on what his purpose is! He is, as some one quite bluntly put it, a useful idiot. I prefer, The Ultimate Egotistical Buffoon! He wasn't picked by billionaires and bankers because he is the brightest bulb in the bunch. They needed someone they could use and manipulate. Enter the Obama.

The 1936 Olympics and Putin
In 1936, at the Berlin Olympics, Glickman and Stoller were replaced when it was decided the two should not compete because they were Jewish and it might offend host Adolf Hitler.
Today, we know better.
----------
Demand Russia keep gay athletes safe
Usually when we talk about the 1936 Olympics in Berlin we focus on two men -- Adolf Hitler and Jesse Owens -- and rightfully so. They are the two with an undeniable impact on history, albeit in vastly different ways.
But in light of President Barack Obama's recent remarks on "The Tonight Show" denouncing Russia's new anti-gay laws, laws that have led to bloodshed in the streets, it is important that we remember Marty Glickman and Sam Stoller....
...so here we are again: an Olympics on the horizon, another host country with recently legislated laws persecuting a group of people, and for a while, we were silent. And then Tuesday happened.
"I've been very clear that when it comes to universal rights, when it comes to people's basic freedoms, that whether you are discriminating on the basis of race, religion, gender or sexual orientation, you are violating the basic morality that I think should transcend every country," Obama said, going on to talk about how Russia's treatment of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people goes against the spirit of the Olympics.

This Olympics is going to be very tense it seems. I wonder if the UN can do anything to resolve this?

As I set here and read a lot of the post. I see a lot of hate, and I cannot understand hate. I do understand dislike, I freely admit I dislike the President but he is my President. I would have preferred Hillary over Obama. What are you a women hater?
The Hate I see the most is from the Far Left. OMG if I disagree with you I am the Devil In-Carnet. I am not in lock step with the left agenda. The problem is I know what the far lefts agenda is and do you know. I am not willing to give up any of my right. It is bad enough that several right are being infringed on by the government. Wiretapping, voice recognition programs, Key word programs and several other programs. These programs have been in place since the 90’s and I worked with them. Think at how much they have improved in 18 years. And the left wants to infringe more in the name of safety.
I agree with you about the hate but where you lose me is saying it's all coming from the left. I believe I've seen more then it's share coming from the right as well. Hate doesn't heal nor has it ever accomplished anything that is good.
If you see the left wanting to infringe on our freedoms I'd love for you to be more sepecific about what they are doing that makes you feel that way.

I would hope that is what happens and something I would recommend.. But lets face it most teens or young adults would have a hard time with the probation aspect.. Now not only competing with other citizens with a clean record they they have a record.. Grant it they earned it and it seems to lead to nothing but crime thereafter..

If they go through the court system as juveniles they won't have a record to their names as adults. Those records are sealed. Plus if it's a first time offense they will only get a slap on the wrist and told not to do it again.
I believe the 3rd time and your out is the wrong way of doing things. Because when they break the law and nothing much happens the 1st, 2nd time that simple encourages them to continue on the wrong path. Perhaps if they hit them hard the first time there wouldn't be a 2nd and 3rd time.

Poor Sad Sack. You're a self professed queer who spends her life on the internet. That in itself is bad enough, but have you ever noticed the only friends you have on the internet are of the white trash and minority type? There are upstanding queers on the internet, even upstanding straight people who befriend queers, none of which seem to like you.
Why is that, Failboy - Sad Sack?
Ignorance doesn't become you. I like Jaxx and I'm not white trash nor have I ever been. I happen to be a very upstanding straight member of my community and a Christian.
When you speak to another person as you just did to Jaxx what does that make you?

are you saying with this post that you support pols doing 'things' that 'help' their party over helping, say, their Country?
the second question would then be: so, you think the Dem pols, by supporting 'reform' ARE helping THEIR party? and, if the Country suffers or not, ah, well????
15 million illegals, like 15-25 million gays, like 20-30 entitlement class citizens, like 25 million SS receivers... do NOT constitute a MAJORITY like, say, 100 million working & tax-paying citizens and their families.
if the pols/FG would take care of the PAYERS first, the others would be pretty much moot.
pretty soon, the pols/FG is gonna make the working & tax-paying citizens a MINORITY, too.
then, will they get the attention they DESERVE?
some people have their priorities backasswards, IMO.
you are one of them...
To begin with higgins I don't see immigration reform that legalizes immigrants as harming our Country. The facts show it would actually help so you are all wrong about what you say.
I believe that the Republican party should do what the majority want them to do.
"Whit Ayres is a respected veteran Republican pollster who has done extensive research and polling on immigration reform and what GOP primary voters really think of it. He tells me in an interview that much of the conventional wisdom is wrong: Republican voters do support immigration reform — including a path to citizenship — albeit with the proper conditions attached. Indeed they want to see something done."
http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/plum-line...
What has happened with the Republican party is that they are stuck on stupid. They have done everything possible to stop any legislation that would help this Country because of it. Unless they wise up soon I see more years of Democrats running things and I would like to see my party get back in and working for the citizens of this Country.

The Olympics are going to be a real mess and NBC has a public relations nightmare on its hands.

You can look for some major advertisers to pull out.

The UN will probably try to be involved in "negotiations" to ensure athletes and visitors are safe, but there isn't really much they can do.

"As far as I know I'm the only person on this thread who has used his real name, given his real hometown and told his true life story"

Get a clue.

I posted under my real name when I first came to Topix. You're probably the only person on this thread that doesn't know that unless you're just playing stupid for effect.

The trolls used that name to research me and when they found out I was exactly who and what I claimed to be and there wasn't anything they could use to shut me up, they started posting contact information about my family members.

After a series of death threats (kind of like the dozens that were deleted from yesterdays troll party) I started posting as Jaxxon.

It was my choice and the original account is still active if I should ever decide I want to use it.

ralff is posting with the name of the town where I grew up as his user name right now and posts my real name every time he gets frustrated because he isn't smart enough to win an argument (how sad is that?), so as far as I'm concerned you can save the drama.

When I talk about the trolls posting anonymously, I'm talking about the cowards that come on here, post other peoples info, make threats and hide behind an anonymous proxy to do it.

Remind you of anyone?

Trayvon Martin case lingers over anniversary of MLK’s March on Washington
Organizers commemorating the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington say they expect the case of slain Florida teenager Trayvon Martin to figure prominently in their events, but they insist the controversy won’t overshadow the tribute to a milestone in the civil rights movement.

Guess they think it is to there advantage to turn off their supporters.
And you really think Dr. King wouldn't have something to say about that case if he were alive today?

For some reason I just don't see this as a serious post.

CNN video: British teen commits suicide after online attacks

14 year old Hannah Smith has committed suicide after becoming the target of internet trolls.

A face book page in her memory has been taken down after the same trolls began to attack the dead teen there. Her sister has now become their target.

Most of the attacks originated from an unregulated, New York based forum where those responsible plan a "celebration" following the young girls death.
