It's sad that the level of discourse about politics is such that someone had to through maybe thousands of pictures of Bush just to find a pic to refute the silly claims about lack of patriotism.

Quoting 3345roc:

While your propensity for exaggeration is comical the lack of governance has rendered Washington irrelevant.  Luckily some Governors and Mayors have made some progress   by negotiating with the opposition.

 

You might also want to reacquaint yourself with which of the three branches of government is responsible for governance.


Roc,

Ahem......not only was I paying attention in Biology class....I took NOTES during Government and Political Science!  My statement stands.  They don't want to govern!  They run and hide, but then say.... oh look, look...that mean and terrible Obama is trying to run the country without us!  It would be laughable except for the offensive voter suppression activities being employed in order to keep from being voted out.  

 

The treachery this president has faced is beyond the pale.  And the next time you hear someone (Fox News) wailing that President Bush would never disrespect the troops by saluting with a cup of coffee in his hand......No Never!  Because his hands were full of dog!

The yellow curtain behind President Obama is not a Muslim prayer curtain.  It's been there since the 1960s.  There are numerous pictures of it from different administrations.  There's actually no such thing as a Muslim prayer curtain.   I found the truth in a fraction of a second by Googling "Muslim prayer curtain in White House."  

 

The Snopes article also shows other presidents having press conferences without flags.

 

I don't regret voting for Obama when I consider the alternatives that were available.  It's foolish to compare our leaders to a non-existent ideal statesman who agrees with us on every point.  

 

Our Founding Fathers were great men but they were human too. They tried plenty of things that didn't work, such as the Articles of Confederation.

Quoting Dekan09:

Diana I totally agree with your comment on Congress! I'd like to see term limits on them. The problem the founders pointed out with that it you may get rid of those who have a genuine love for the country and doing what's best for her to be replaced by a total reprobate! Congress cares more about their job and keeping that than the welfare of our country!



DEKAN, 

 

When members of CONGRESS are collecting good pay and able to vacation on our dime, they are incapable of seeing the troubles through our eyes. 

 

Know where you see the most passionate advocates? IN PTA'S, AND NON PROFIT ORGANIZATIONS LIKE ELKS AND EAGLES WHERE PEOPLE DON'T GET PAID, BUT WORK FOR FREE FOR THE SATISFACTION THEY HAVE HELPED OTHERS!!! 

 

As far as regret? 

 

REN - Go to the streets of Chicago where they protested Obama for taking care of ILLEGALS, and not our own indigent children! 

 

WAKE UP PEOPLE!!

RenaissanceBM I bet if you took a poll of those who voted for the president now they'd be sorry! Those who've lost jobs, insurance, homes, 401's. He's weakend our country by cutting our military. What is the point of that? He's having "pink slips" given to our officers in theater but yet he signed an executive order to enlist illegals? What the hell is up with that? Supporters of the Muslim Brotherhood are in his cabinet. He won't call radical Islam a terrorist group. No not all Muslims are bad and most people know that. Look at what has taken place in OK this week. Workplace violence? Fort Hood workplace violence? A woman came home from work to find her husband with his head cut off and they are calling it a suicide? How in the hell can he cut his own head off then tie his hands together? This president is a coward! Nothing is ever his fault. He finds stuff out like we do....ON THE NEWS! He runs the freaking country! He's got to come up with something better than that! He doesn't care! That's the simple explanation.

TO ALL----

 

I think most are missing the most serious issue of all here, and it ISN'T MONEY, PAST PRESIDENTS, PAST DEBTS or even FUTURE DEBTS.. 

 

In the medical field, there is a term called "TRIAGE" which refers to assessing the URGENCY of a patients care. 

IE: If you walk into an ER and are turning blue and can't breath, you take presence over the broken arm, even though that patient has been waiting for 2 hours. THEY FOCUS ON THE CRTICAL SSUES...

 

So, although finances, debts, etc. ARE major factors here and need to be dwelled on and changed, the fact remains...  

 

WE ARE FACING RADICALS AND THEY ARE BEHEADING AND KLLING PEOPLE AS WE READ!!!! 

 

If living in the sticks of Louisiana has taught me one thing, it is this...

 

A customer who spent 2 years in prison for drugs explained this one day:

 

When you are in the penitentiary, most people belong to a group. You do not go up to another man and question him from another group. Say a man from another group comes to talk to me.

BAM... I lay him out before he ever says his first sentence. 

It's how it works. 

WHY? We alreay know we don't want that person in our group and that person cannot be trusted, therefore they are USELESS to us. I punch him one time to knock him out and set the stage for others not to come jack with me or our group. 

 

IT MAY SOUND BARBARIC, BUT IT IS WHAT WORKS BEST FOR SURVIVAL IN A PLACE WHERE MANY ARE OF A VIOLENT AND UNCARING MIND SET ... 

GET THEM BEFORE THEY GET YOU... 

 

Well my friends... 

It is a sad reality we are being pelted with heinous acts as we are with the current ISIS movement, etc... 

But to TRIAGE our fine nation and to assist in securing the world's future, (we are not the only ones being brutilized) 

we need a LEADER who does not tolerate this.

 

We have CLEARED OUT 2 UNITED STATES EMBASSY'S WITHIN 3 MONTHS!!!

 

NEVER is there a good time to downsize our military... NO COUNTRY SHOULD EVER DOWNSIZE THEIR FORCES. 

It's STUPID! It makes us WEAKER! And it's the most disastrous move ANY President could ever make, regardless of any other mistakes he makes in offiice!!!!!!

 

Know WHY my ex-con customer says he hits first and knocks them out with one punch? 

As long as he is feared, no one messes with him again. 

 

NO ONE FEARS US ANYMORE...

THAT STEMS FROM A WEAK LEADERSHIP.

 

LIKE IT OR NOT-------

 

Bush Jr. was a far better LEADER, on THAT ONE PREMISE ALONE.. 

 

If someone can't see the URGENCY of this issue, I'm sorry.. No other way to put it. They are ignorant! 

 

STOP TALKING ABOUT THE PAST, AND WORRYING OVER WHO WAS BETTER, WHO DID WHAT, YADA YADA... 

IT DOESN'T MATTER! FOCUS ON WHAT IS RELEVANT, NOW!!!

 

AND AMERICA'S SAFETY COMES FIRST!

 

If you see a child playing in the road, you don't concern yourself with WHY they are there, or WHO is suposed to be watching them. YOU SECURE THE CHILD'S SAFETY FIRST AND ASK QUESTIONS LATER! 

 

COMMON SENSE PEOPLE! 

WAKE UP!!! 

 

OUR SAFETY IS AT RISK!!!!

Dekan~

If the Congress wanted any part of governing, they would show up for work more than 4 days a month!

But I wanted to say HELLO.. 

 

Love your newer pic! 

 

AND, I do agree... 

 

NOBODY DOES THEIR JOB PROPERLY!! 

 

TOO MUCH $$$, TOO MANY VACATIONS, AND TOO MUCH TIME NOT SPENT WORKING!!

Hoping4Love2000 I'm not a lesbian but girl I could kiss your little redneck lips! I truly think you have voiced what the majority of the American people are feeling. The only way that those who voted for the president both times and still love him and consider him doing a good job will only be realized once he finally leaves office and gets the hell out of the White House.

 

The latest thing that has happened and scares the freaking hell out of me is Holder resigning and being appointed to the Supreme Court! I'm sure the president will go around Congress AGAIN  and does whatever the hell he wants! I guess time will tell and that should be less than a month? God help us because no one else will...neither Democrats or Republicans.

Quoting RenaissanceBM:

Wow!!! Hoping4Love you win the Fox News watcher of the year. Let's start with the most misused word by the right wing....

 

Socialism...defined by Merriam-Webster:

 

 

a way of organizing a society in which major industries are owned and controlled by the government rather than by individual people and companies.

 

We are the least socialist nation in the world. Period. We are far less regulated than any other major industrial nation in the world. Period. By comparison, we were far more socialistic under President Reagan than President Obama. Need I really remind you of Superfund, Glass-Steagall, Amnesty, Brady Bill, et.al.?

 

Wow!!! We really do live in the dark ages where blind faith answers all questions no matter what reality demonstrates. 



Hi RENAISSANCE... 

Nice to meet you... 

 

???? Your definition just described EXACTLY what I am stating.... 

 

The GOVERNMENT ISSSSSSSS taking away our choices!! Erego, TRYING to make this a MORE SOCIALIST NATION... 

 

Are we the most social, AT THIS TIME?? 

 

WELL, HECK NO!! NOT YET!!!

 

RE-READ PLEASE, SIR....

 

The "COMPANIES" you speak of --- (By the definition you used previously, which is acurate)

 

Well, those COMPANIES, are FORCED now to carry insurance for their employees, forcing many small businesses to FOLD..  

 

The GOVERNMENT is TRYING to TAKE AWAY our gun rights... 

 

The GOVERNMENT is TRYING to TAKE AWAY our RELIGION... 

HOW? 

Now we "celebrate" Muslim culture, and SPIT on CHRISTIANITY...

DO THE MATH...

 

We don't say MERRY CHRISTMAS, we are instructed to say HAPPY HOLIDAYS, as to not offend others...

Many schools do NOT have parties anymore due to OFFENDING MUSLIMS!!!!??????

 

WELL ISN'T CHRISTMAS ABOUT CHRIST JESUS..

OR IS MY ENGLISH OFF HERE?

CHRIST = CHRIST-MAS...  

 

If it weren't for CHRIST, there would never have been a CHRISTmas! 

 

We now have schools that turn our uniformed men and women, military and police force, away, when they come in their WORK CLOTHES to watch or visit their children!

 

We have MINIMIZED our military and now people are being BEHEADED in other countries... 

Might YOU wish to be first in line to welcome ISIS to our country when we have little military left to fight them! 

 

What truly concerns me? 

 

WHO THE HECK CARES ABOUT REAGAN, BUSH, CLINTON, FORD...

WHO CARES ABOUT ANY OF THE PAST???

 

LET'S FIX THE FUTURE.. AND THAT STARTS TODAY WITH THE MAN IN CHARGE!!! 

 

SMH.. (Shake My Head) 

 

*Some people bewilder me with their thought process... 

 

It's akin to blaming our parents for our lives when we are 50 and still screwed up...

 

SERIOUSLY??? 

 

It's time to STEP UP, QUIT BLAMING PRESIDENTS FROM YEARS AGO, AND FIX THE PROBLEMS!!

 

If I get a job in management, I can't fall back on how poor a job the last manager did.. 

I have to shake it all off, and RESOLVE THE ISSUES, REGARDLESS!!

And if I don't succeed? 

 

I GET FIRED!!

 

PS.. I don't follow FOX news... I watch all news that comes my way and then make an assessment. 

 

I also watch some of ALLEN WEST and DR. BEN CARSON.

Now THEY are some SMART, BLACK AMERICAN MEN!!! 

 

I disagree with ROC on what OBAMA will be remembered for.. 

 

He will be regarded as the PRESIDENT WHO TRIED TO TAKE AWAY OUR COUNTRIES FREEDOMS IN EFFORT TO MAKE A MUSLIM MOVEMENT SWEEP OUR NATION...

 

Guess who I am in favor of?

 

I live in "the sticks" of Louisiana currently...

 

We have a war hit?

I'm finding one of those "uneducated red necks" with all the weapons in his home, so when ISIS an the MUSLIMS try to overrun us, I have a fighting chance to survive the attack. They've told me when someone comes to get their guns, they will station themselves on their rooftops and fire away and kill as many of them as they possibly can before they lose the battle of being overrun... 

 

And me? I'll be laying right next to them riddling as many bullets in the enemy with my red necks AK-47 as I possibly can, in effort to secure MY FUTURE, AND MY FREEDOM!!

One would find it difficult to dispute, the economy Obama was handed from George Bush Junior, and I stress the Jr. By the end of Obama's Administration, a Surplus will be left; adding to the treasury. Obama added billlions to the Treasury, when The US Citizen's stake in Too Big To Fail Companies Stocks were sold for Profit. Most of the average General Public knows of the corruption of mortgages by the Derivative market, worldwide. Some Nations are still on the brink of default, from that event. The American People owned those stocks. Naturally, we could look at the Chrysler Loan during the Reagan Era. Was he a socialist for giving Crysler a hand? What about the Thrift Market Scandal? Bailouts there?

 Some blame Clinton, for giving first time, and no down payment mortgage American workers a chance to own a home, and allow a worker some pride of life. This, psychologicaly, helps people breath easier, and dream a little dream. I hear,here, that 2008 was Clinton's fault. How can that be? Was it debated with Gore, in 2000? It would seem, it was working fine then,and through the beginnings of the Bush JR. Admin. We see a common theme here, and following the money trail would be advised.

 

I can understand the reasons, a right leaning group would create a 6 year side show. They lack realistic vision. Usually, when I Brainstorm, I can usually think of 2-3 ways to solve a problem. This creates debate with Me, Myself,& ID( The Balances). We heard, over 5 years ago, that 50 was the new 30. 70 definately is the new 50.

This is due to technology. The Baby Boomers will be a significant voting public by 2016(15-20%?( Woman dominant). Put the 25-45's in the voting mix (Woman dominant), and the hand ruling, is the cradle rocking hand.

 

The best debate here, would be a cumulative, line item. Ive done MY research. Those threads I deleted were damaging to some diatribe, spewing from some Millionaire+ Comentators mouth. There are truth websites out on that vast WWW. One must research the finites of TRUTH, to sustain FACT! How many others, research the truth?

Quoting 3345roc

 

"I think historians will be kinder.  The only thing that will distinguish his 8 years is that he was the first black elected President.... nothing more."

 

The only value of a blog is to exchange ideas, opinions, and observations that encourage thoughtful discussion. Any thing less is a waste of everyone's time. Sir you obviously have an opinion about our current President. It would be illuminating if you offered a shred of support for your diatribe. You may disagree with my comments or the comments of others, but at least we itemize the facts that support our opinions. The idea that President Obama will only be remembered as the first Black President is either hideously ignorant or maliciously dishonest.  Did you forget the condition of the country when he took office in January 2009? I won't repeat the facts i have already laid out in two posts on this blog. I will just remind you that by comparison to his predecessor, no notable historian includes President Obama in the discussion of the worst President in history. So please do us all a favor and support your opinion or let it stand as the most vapid comment on MM.

It's sad to see so many people who possibly ARE educated, do not hold enough COMMON SENSE in their heads to recognize a SOCIALIST CALL when we are living one, NOW...

 

TAKE AWAY OUR GUNS

TAKE AWAY OUR HEALTH CARE

TAKE AWAY OUR RELIGION

OUR HOLIDAYS.....

EVEN OUR LIGHT BULBS!!!!

 

As a mother, when my children were very young, I would only grant them two choices of what to wear to school. They were INCAPABLE to have a closet filled with CHOICES... They were of "small minds..." 

 

Kind of unbelievable some people can't see we are being treated like we have "small minds" and are being left with little choices. 

 

I suppose the people who can't see the "SOCIALISM CALL" must have "small minds." 

 

I don't care what color our "Commaner in Chief" is... and at this point, even if it be a woman...

I just want someone who recognizes the LAST thing a country EVER needs to do is MINIMIZE OUR MILITARY. 

 

BAD MOVE!!!

And if a person can't see this... 

Well, that in itself, makes them PART OF THE PROBLEM. 

 

HI DEKAN AND ALL----
