HUSSEIN OBAMA is following the paths of Mussolini, Stalin, Hitler, Castro, Chavez AND AHMADINIJAD.
JUST READ THIS VERY IMPORTANT DOCUMENTARY:

German View of Islam
This is by far the best explanation of the Muslim terrorist situation I have ever read. His references to past history are accurate and clear. Not long, easy to understand, and well worth the read. The author of this email is said to be Dr. Emanuel Tanay, a well-known and well-respected psychiatrist
A German's View on Islam
A man, whose family was German aristocracy prior to World War II, owned a number of large industries and estates. When asked how many German people were true Nazis, the answer he gave can guide our attitude toward fanaticism.'Very few people were true Nazis,' he said,'but many enjoyed the return of German pride, and many more were too busy to care. I was one of those who just thought the Nazis were a bunch of fools. So, the majority just sat back and let it all happen. Then, before we knew it, they owned us, and we had lost control, and the end of the world had come. My family lost everything. I ended up in a concentration camp and the Allies destroyed my factories.'
We are told again and again by 'experts' and 'talking heads' that Islam is the religion of peace and that the vast majority of Muslims just want to live in peace. Although this unqualified assertion may be true, it is entirely irrelevant. It is meaningless fluff, meant to make us feel better, and meant to somehow diminish the specter of fanatics rampaging across the globe in the name of Islam.
The fact is that the fanatics rule Islam at this moment in history; it is the fanatics who march...it is the fanatics who wage any one of 50 shooting wars worldwide. It is the fanatics who systematically slaughter Christian or tribal groups throughout Africa and are gradually taking over the entire continent in an Islamic wave. It is the fanatics who bomb, behead, murder, or honour-kill. It is the fanatics who take over mosque after mosque. It is the fanatics who zealously spread the stoning and hanging of rape victims and homosexuals. It is the fanatics who teach their young to kill and to become suicide bombers..
The hard, quantifiable fact is that the peaceful majority, the 'silent majority,' is cowed and extraneous.
Communist Russia was comprised of Russians who just wanted to live in peace, yet the Russian Communists were responsible for the murder of about 20 million people. The peaceful majority were irrelevant. China 's huge population was peaceful as well, but Chinese Communists managed to kill a staggering 70 million people.

The average Japanese individual prior to World War II was not a warmongering sadist. Yet, Japan murdered and slaughtered its way across Southeast Asia in an orgy of killing that included the systematic murder of 12 million Chinese civilians; most killed by sword, shovel, and bayonet.
And who can forget Rwanda , which collapsed into butchery. Could it not be said that the majority of Rwandans were 'peace loving'?
History lessons are often incredibly simple and blunt, yet for all our powers of reason, we often miss the most basic and uncomplicated of points:

Peace-loving Muslims have been made irrelevant by their silence.

Peace-loving Muslims will become our enemy if they don't speak up, because like my friend from Germany, they will awaken one day and find that the fanatics own them, and the end of their world will have begun.

Peace-loving Germans, Japanese, Chinese, Russians, Rwandans, Serbs, Afghans, Iraqis, Palestinians, Somalis, Nigerians, Algerians, and many others have died because the peaceful majority did not speak up until it was too late. As for us who watch it all unfold, we must pay attention to the only group that counts--the fanatics who threaten our way of life.

We already know you're an idiot, "Mr Bill." There’s no need for you to prove it in each and every post you make.

Wrong again. You should read anout Ms. Warren, rather than getting your information from doped-up right-wing "entertainers."

Warren's job is to preserve our economic system, which has been under attack from the Marxist lying neo-conservatives. The have done great damage, and President Obama is bringing us back from the brink of Bush's World Depression.

Ignorant people like you made the same sort of comments about Prsident Roosevelt, but his job was to preserve our sysytem, which he did.

Regulated Capitalism is a viable method of creating wealth, yet preserving hiuman decency and dignity. Why do you oppose that?

Are you a Marxist lying neo-conservative?

Ok.

-Wrong.
-Wrong (but not entirely.)
-Wrong.

Your partial correct is only because you somehow presume the GOP minority in congresss is practicing government. In normal times, President Obama's interrim appointment bight be seen as a bypass.

However, with the GOP voting no, by rote, there is no oversight, by its real meaning. The Republicans in the Senate are not exercising their Constitutional duty to advise and consent; but rather they are using the extra-Constitutionl tool of the filibuster to attempt to tie up all govenment, and then to blame Obama for not having accomplished his goals.

They are playing politics when they should be doing their duty.
There is no advise and consent; therefore, no oversight, just stupidity and dereliction on the GOP's part.

Right?
And how well is the whole country doing today? Are you enoying your ownership of banks and car manufacturers? How about paying for that house your neighbor couldn't afford to buy? Are you willing to get a part-time job to pay for everyone's health insurance, or are you benefitting from all of the above? Are you aware of this woman's ideals and plans for this agency? You should be, because if she implements them it's going to cost the working American even more. Obama used the back door because he knew he would never get her in doing it in the proper venue.

As compared to, say, 2-4 years ago, the country is doing remarkably better.

You seem to forget that the rest of us have actually been paying attention and noticed how close to the brink of collapse the corporations brought us all.

That you either haven't or willfully choose to ignore it, is, at best, pathetic in the extreme.

And YOU have obviously forgotten (if you were ever honest enough to admit it in the first place) that although the corporations played their part, it was the Democrats who created the entire downward spiral with their stupid socialist Freddie Mack and Fannie Mae mortgage giveaways.

Gee, why am I not surprised that you're too dishonest (or ignorant) to admit that it was the Democrats who were the driving force behind the socialist mortgage giveaway through Fannie Mae and Freddy Mack?

Some highlights:

1930s: Franklin Roosevelt’s New Deal
Fannie Mae started as the Federal National Mortgage Association. Fannie Mae provided local banks and thrifts with money needed to finance home mortgages.

1968: Lyndon Johnson converted Fannie Mae into a public-private hybrid called a “government-sponsored enterprise”[GSE].

1970: Freddie Mac, was created so Fannie Mae would not monopolize mortgage buying (but they have, in fact, marched in concert).

1977: Under Jimmy Carter, the Community Reinvestment Act [CRA] compelled banks to make loans to poor borrowers.

1999: Under Bill Clinton, driven by Chris Dodd and Barney Frank, banks were given strict numerical quotas for forcing sub-prime loans.

Thus, the economic downward spiral began.
