Here's a good question on exponential debt - why does the country with the HIGHEST gdp per capita in the world also have the (astronomically) highest rate of external debt per gdp? And I'm not talking about the United States here. The US has a 106% external debt to gdp ratio, while the country in question has a much higher gdp ratio, yet has a 3443% rate of external debt to gdp.

So it's Obama's fault when he doesn't get personally involved, and it's Obama's fault when he gets involved.

Got it.

Even Superman from the comics can't be everywhere at all times, taking care of every incident in a world of over 6 billion people.


I think its more about pointing out how the god-king Hussein obozo will get involved and speak on some issues to divide the country, but stay silent when his policies are responsible for a womans death. Nothing new though, you certainly won't hear the coke head murdering psychopath speaking up for all the people his proxy army Isis has murdered either.

Nope, only when the golfing loser can incite a riot will he open lying hole.

Why do you have a problem holding Obama to a standard he still holds the previous president? Obama is still out there blaming Bush for crap all the time! That goes for his supporters as well.


I always laugh when I see people make an argument like this. It reminds me of my elementary school days when you heard kids say "oh, ya? Well, he started it".


So, the standards set by Democrats are never to be applied to the democrats who set those standards? Waaa?

This is something I've always figured, but its nice to see one of you actually come out and say it.

Are you threatened by someone that is a literalist and holds you personally accountable for the things you say? Are you afraid to be responsible for what you say,


You hold internet posters accountable, but not the President of the United States?

Once the country eventualy collapses and burns because of lawlessness going on it will be to late and everyone will be ashamed of themselves.Southern border is a total disaster that will get far worse in the future.Everyone knows it is wrong to not pay taxes and yet they allow it to continue with illegal immigrants.

meh!

Why should Obama get involved in local law enforcement?
The murder and the apprehension of the perpetrator has nothing to do with
Obama or his office.

Come out and say what, exactly? Forgive me, but your post did not make much sense.

What am I supposed to hold the president accountable for? He does not have a magic wand or some almighty power to deal with every single immigrant that comes to this country, legal or not.

If it's such an issue why isn't congress doing anything about it? They have just as much to say about immigration policy as the president? Actually, they have more power because they can override an Obama veto.

Here's an interesting article from February 27, 2013 ...

ICE Detainees Released ARE Criminals



Here are some categories of detainees who were released from ICE detention over the last week:


Aliens convicted of drug offenses, theft, identity theft, forgery, and simple assault;

Aliens who were arrested and charged with local crimes, but turned over to ICE for deportation in lieu of prosecution;

Aliens who were bonded out on local criminal charges and were placed in ICE custody as a result of a detainer (typically a public safety or flight risk); under new ICE detention priority purposes, these are "non-mandatory, non-criminal detainees", because aliens are not considered to be dangerous or criminal until they have been convicted;

Repeat immigration offenders (despite ICE leadership claims that these are "enforcement priorities"); and

Recent border crossers (also supposedly an "enforcement priority")

Yet he uses his EO and Executive Privilege magic wands all the time.

And, there's not enough Democrat votes in Congress to over ride an Obama veto.

Fair enough. Let's look at what he has done:


On November 20, 2014, the President announced a series of executive actions to crack down on illegal immigration at the border, prioritize deporting felons not families, and require certain undocumented immigrants to pass a criminal background check and pay taxes in order to temporarily stay in the U.S. without fear of deportation.

Source

Sounds like he has tried to implement policies to address the issues that everyone seems to be complaining about.



And, there's not enough Democrat votes in Congress to over ride an Obama veto.


You have a Republican controlled house and a Republican controlled senate. Why aren't they addressing the issue? Isn't that one of the reasons they were voted in?

Oh, well they can't get the Democrats to join in to override a veto. So it appears that the only way something will get done is if Obama passes an EO.....which he did.

And you complain about that and blame him for the violent act of one individual.

Like I said earlier, damned if he does, damned if he don't.

You guys don't care about illegal immigration. You don't even care that you have control of both houses and they aren't doing jack squat. You guys just want something to whine and cry about because you don't like Obama and pay too much attention to the media propaganda.

Well I don't know what is worse, assuming you were a liberal, or the fact that you're a self proclaimed Socialist, but I do appreciate you clearing that up.

I disagree that Obama is a moderate, Hillary Clinton is a moderate, aside from a few issues. Ok so now I know that you're a Bernie-bot.

Me? I am tired of the fake two party system, so anyone other than the typical D.C insiders will do. I also view the Republicans as moderates, they are just liberal Republicans to me. ~$heopleNation

I know. You were programmed to be afraid of people like me. Don't worry though. I wont hurt you.

Once again, you assume. Bernie isn't socialist enough for me. But please, continue to assume. It doesn't reflect on me.

I'm sure they would be viewed as moderates to a right-wing extremist. But it is far beyond me to assume that of you.

I am more afraid for you. I am hoping your extremist socialist views do not get you a cot with your name on it inside some FEMA camp.

Well who is your hero then, so it's perfectly clear? Maybe chairman Mao?

You do assume a lot, too bad you're wrong about that one. You said it yourself, they have not done anything, but like you said, we don't care about that.

With me it's more about sticking to the Constitution, as well as many other Conservative values. ~$heopleNation

I thought the conspiracy was that a socialist-communist takeover would round up "patriots" and put them in the camps. If so, I'm all set.

I don't have or need a hero. Idolatry is for the the weak. I know who I am and where I'm going. Don't need to follow someone else's path.

I didn't assume. I said it was beyond me to do so and only stated that the current Republicans only look liberal to right wing extremists. It's up to you to decide where you fall.

I can agree. The constitution is key.

When you find a party or politician that actually practiced true conservatism, let me know.

It depends, could go either way. Probably up to the U.S Military.

I agree that idolatry is for the weak, but you can still respect an individual.

With that way of thinking, then you believing Obama is a moderate would you an extremist. See how that works?

That was my point when I called the Liberal Republicans moderates. I am starting to get dizzy. ~$heopleNation

Obama does not like white people. It's extremely apparent with the way he favors blacks over whites. Anyone trying to deny that is just angry that someone has the balls to say it.

You're an idiot if you think either party give a rats ass about you. I always get a kick out of the republicans and their pet names for Obama. Names a 5 year old would come up with. Seriously neither party gives a damn. It's a good thing it wasn't my daughter because I would be plotting some serious revenge against a certain group of people. By the time I was finished the government would take notice.

You know what Fox News reminds me of? The guy you work with and you tell him something and he goes and tell all the other employees something differnet to try and make himself look good.
