I have FAR MORE RAGE when it comes to Bush!

I am NOT a republican.

I am NOT a democrat.

I do this ancient thing (not practiced these days very often) called THINKING FOR MYSELF!

Anyone who claims to be Democrat or Republican is guilty of watching TOO MUCH TV (and too much internet). Propaganda does work...






I'm not a Democrat or Republican either and I don't watch TV...really at all.

I don't think you are thinking for yourself if, you state in this thread that Obama is undermining the constitution and taking away our freedoms. You're missing out on reality.

Well if you didn't want to be a problem maybe you should hate everything Obama says even if it agrees with your point of view.

Awesome stuff from the POTUS about not allowing censorship due to offending others! Hey, whatever happened to that crap film about Muhammad that supposedly caused the Benghazi incident? Wasn't that banned from YouTube and the creator arrested?

+1 for the POTUS giving it to those who would backdown from showing a film. Anyone who would do that is a coward.

Kinda. Again, the reality is there would be costs and reparations and we know full damn well the terrorists wouldn't be paying them. We would be. Or Sony or the theaters would (sans insurance if they dont have that rider...whatever), particularly if they were forewarned and chose ti accept. Wonder what tgeir attornets are advising.


It's called assumed risk. If the theaters, knowing the risk, show the film and something happens, then the theater would have to pay out of their own pocket for damages to their property. Likewise, if the patrons of the theater, knowing the risk, choose to go see the movie anyway, then they would be responsible for any damages to their property and any medical expenses incurred due to injury. Their attorneys are probably advising them exactly as I just stated, because that is the extent of their risk.

OBAMA IS NOT ON OUR TEAM!

When you say, "go team", what team are you referring to? Socialists, Communists...

My guess, you have no idea what you are talking about, and you want to feel like you know something by saying...

"He did something right... FOR ONCE"

My child killer question was not irrelevant.

He is KILLING America... OBAMACARE is COMMUNISM!

And as long as he defends the first amendment ONE TIME (All other times he says the constitution is outdated or "flawed") and you are all over this thread saying "GO TEAM!"

But to you... it is a mere "golf clap".

Right...

You aren't part of the problem at all.

So you think that Obama is a socialist and a communist? How can he be both? And that he's killing America and that ObamaCare ..which is really called the Affordable Care Act...is communism? So...Medicare and Medicaid is not communism? And how do you define communism? How can Obama be a communist and a socialist?

Hang on my friend and let me check outside again...nope America is not dead, nor is it mortally or fatally wounded. He's not killing it. It's okay. Carry on.

As a Marxist, let me tell you that you sound like an idiot for stating that Obama is a Socialist or a Communist.

I might like him more if he were.

Have I clapped for Socialism? Have I clapped for Obamacare?

You make a truckload of assumptions about me that are all untrue.

A couple of points:

One: I'm allowed to say what I damn well please about the President, and he did good this time. So I'll say it again. GO TEAM.

Two: By "team" I mean team U.S.A. Not team socialism, not team fascism, but team Red White and M Effen Blue.

Three: Your postings to me, riddled with CAPITAL LETTERS and baseless assumptions, are at best slightly amusing. So thanks for that.

Four: I'm sipping some delicious Chamomile tea after a hard day's work to calm my nerves. You should try some, it's really soothing.

Care to explain that?

Or are you just going to say "you're missing out on reality" with no backup whatsoever?

You even got a star for that... lol

Please, explain...

How am I missing out on reality?

Once you are done, I will tell you the story of how I was detained for 8 HOURS for BEING ANGRY!

Best part, I wasn't angry... All I did was question the police on their actions.

No charges pressed...

No actual reason given...

8 hours in jail...

And you tell me that I am not living in reality?

Since 9/11 constitutional rights are OUT THE WINDOW...

Yes, Bush started some of it, but OBAMA IS CONTINUING IT!

WE ARE LOSING FREEDOMS!!!

And it is issues like this, where a monster is given PRAISE for FINALLY doing something that IS PART OF HIS DAY-TO-DAY JOB, where we lose perspective...

Because he stands up for the first amendment ONE TIME, it means (to all of you), that maybe he isn't such a bad guy after all...

If a janitor takes six years to sweep a floor, do you praise him for EVENTUALLY getting around to it?

NO, you fire him, and get someone who WILL DO THEIR JOB EVERY SINGLE DAY!

If you still don't get what I am saying, fine.

I doesn't really surprise me that people are ignoring the death of the US constitution.

And yet, here you are... still going on...and on...and on...

And yet, all you claim to be doing is giving a "golf clap"...

"Yay Obama, he remembered that we have a first amendment today".

When in reality, you are fighting anyone who dares say anything negative about Obama TOOTH AND NAIL.

Your anger and blame is misdirected... that's where you are losing out on Reality.

Presidents' only have 1/3rd of the power in the USA. Supreme Court and the two parts of Congress have the other 2/3rds.

Obama is not a monster...you're calling him a communist and saying he's destroying America. That's where you're missing out on Reality. I'm not saying he's the greatest president. History will show that he's a slightly above average president and that's about it.

Congress are the ones taking away our freedoms with all the bills and legislation...net neutrality, patriot act, NSA reform, militarization of police, and how the police treat common people like you and the situation you described.

But that's not really Obama. Yes this country has big problems. Like HealthCare in need of severe reform, like how we torture innocent people, like how the police are so aggressive and oppressive and our surveillance state and our out of control taxes and our bloated military budget...and so on... but to say that it's all Obama's fault and that he's killing America? That's why I said you were out of touch with reality.

So, now I'm angry???

When people stop putting words into my mouth, I will respond.

Why do you all have to team up on me? Can't ScientificRailgun defend herself?

When you are ready, I will have more to add.

So much more...

I offered a whole thread backing up my points...
