Indeed... He does make sense, and that is what always scares me the most. His ACTIONS betray the level of duplicity in everything he says. If he FOLLOWED even a part of what he promised before being elected, we'd be in a considerably different and better nation almost 4 years later.

Instead.... He's only stuck to the worst of what he promised and even Iraq ended on a timeline Bush signed into a formal agreement, not Barry.

I'd remind everyone that Hitler was elected and rode the wave of public love to power....at first. Stalin didn't murder 10's of millions of Russian civilians in his purges all by himself. He had millions who thought he had some pretty good ideas...even while the bloodbath was going on. Every madman had a % that adore them and just see nothing they do as being half as bad as it is.




Hitler and Stalin huh???

I swear by god this is all you guys have, emotionally driven gossip.

What do you guys stand for besides tax cuts and who does it help?

You know, I really didn't feel the people who were drawing those comparisons three years ago were being fair either. That was then and this is now...Oh how much has changed in the time since.

We've seen the Patriot Act not only extended but radically expanded in spirit and letter. Things like the NDAA provisions on detention come to mind as do his own words not that long ago in telling anti-gun types to be patient..he just hadn't gotten to it yet. Gun Walker, Gun Runner and the deliberate assassination of American born citizens overseas with all kinds of logic offered for why it can be done even more widely in the future.


What could I possibly have to worry about? I don't mention Hitler's name for the Nazi ideology. That has NOTHING to do with it and they'd both be rolling in their graves to hear Stalin's name in the same breath if that were the point being made.

I was talking about the mix of Charisma, sheer force of will and total disregard for the rule of law where their OWN actions and authority are concerned. Those two are just a couple of the most high profile examples of where the road can lead. I don't even mind a Democrat mavericking out of nowhere to throw the Boss an unexpected challenge. I'd vote for someone like Hillary tomorrow over Obama. No question.

The constitution was designed to protect us from govt and to protect the states rights from mob rule. Obama is forcing americans to buy certain products. He took money from the poor and gave to fortune 500 companies. Taking away rights weve had since the birth of the constitution isnt being a good guy. The right is just as bad. The left strips our rights and the right imposes their values legally. All are scum. The reality is if you supporr the obama crowd or the conservatives you piss on what our founders intended. You dont support america as it exists and you want to turn it into a cross between a dictatorship and a socialist state. To all the people that support the two parties why dont you guys pack up and move rather than funk up america.

Am i my brothers keeper? The correct answer is, if i choose to be. In america the intent was to give us the choice of being our brothers keeper instead of it making it illegal to not be. You dont force americans to prop others up when they need a hand. Most of us do it by choice. Removing said choice is why most of us are upset.

Semantics. I'm arguing the action itself in contrast with the norm while you're arguing the manner in which the action is accomplished. Kinda pointless IMO, unless it's for the sake of clarification.

If money ever vanishes and our society turns into anything resembling a utopia... Those who squeezed the life out of people for a few bucks are going to have ALOT to learn for their greed. Those who extinguish a potentially eternal life over something so frivilous will have what runneth over my cup. Any life that ends without denying what i have to offer will be a great shame.

As a teacher of men... ive got some lessons already in mind.. and dont think ill let you die, because youve got an eternity to learn all the things you've ignored.

You act as if this kind of modern government and all it's reaches are new...
Ronald Reagan, trained and funded the Taliban, funded death squads in Central America
and armed both sides of the Iran - Iraq war and his CIA oversaw the introduction of
the Crack Cocaine epidemic in society which lead to the beginning and funding of the War
on Drugs, how about the expansion and escalation of the Americas prison industrial
complex or 6 different low intensity conflicts/WARS...


But you act as if the government Obama heads is outrageous.
Are you capable
of any perspective?

My pleasure, just on a unusual note, i was visiting my 95 year old Uncle whom i had not seen in 40 years, and he said i am so glad you came by as i have something to tell you that they have been hiding from you your entire life, you are Black,after discussing this with my Brother he suggested I go back and get more information unfortunately my Uncle died in the next 2 weeks, I feel he just stayed alive till he got it off his chest. as it turned out I was one of what they call the Hidden ones, children who are black who look white,

Now this is in Australia, I always was told that my ancestors were spanish and from the Black Irish, my Mother always became very irritated when I questioned her about my heritage and took the lie to her grave, so i know what is like to live in a white world when you are Black so to speak, one of my best lifelong friends told a mutual aquaintence that if he had of known i was black he woukld never have talked to me, hahahaha ain't life grand?

After my mother Passed I took posession of her photo album and sure enough there we are, from my great grandfather down all black,on my mothers side my mother had certain features but was white also. happy days Bro

The president presented what he sees as the need to increase taxes on the rich as one half of a zero-sum game: If the rich are not taxed more, everyone else will have less.

“But if you’re making more than $1 million a year, you can do a little more,” said Obama. “This is not class envy. This is not class warfare. This is basic math -- that’s what this is.


He is clearly such an evil man



Glad you finally see that he is. I knew you would come around eventually! I hope more on ATS, and the entire country, sees him for what he is like you have.

It is absolutely for the sake of clarification which comes with a very strong and precise point, not the pointlessness you claim. Words are reflections of thoughts and thoughts are things. Run around screaming desperate times require desperate measures and it is only a matter of time before you look like Chicken Little. Conversely, understanding and using the language of desperate times require measured responses and you then become the owl who calms the rest by pointing out that an acorn falling from a tree is not the sky falling.

Measured response, not "semantics".

I know it's hard to sometimes accept at face value...but I'm really not an ideologue. I can lean so far right on one thing that I walk sideways down the street. Law and Order issues come to mind and in spades.
In the next thread, you'll find me supporting access to abortion in a wide variety of circumstances. You chose a bad example because I'm NOT a Republican. I'm a conservative independent, and as much as some want to suggest it's a distinction without a difference, that is definitely not the case.

Reagan was as bad as Obama in some ways, no question. Particularly in his second term. You forgot to mention the nasty, UGLY business that happened under Director Casey in Angola during that period as well, but I agree with you....on foreign policy not directly in the light of public view, Reagan made Nixon look like a real ethical guy. Now on Russia and domestic economic policy, Reagan was one of the best Presidents our nation has had. Clinton came to office still riding the high wave of fundamentals Bush couldn't ruin that fast and Reagan spent 8 years having his people build.

Obama....Well...what is it again he's doing right? Er... nvm.... I just thought it matters to note even Reagan had his good AND yes..very much..he had his bad. I'm always open to the fact neither side is EVER as correct as they'd like to believe.....myself included.

I guess it doesn't matter what Obama says, you guys are going to bash him no matter what. He's going to tax the rich more (woohoo about time!!!). I see nothing wrong with that. Give more money to schools I think the money should go to the school not the teachers, we shouldn't have to persuade people to teach better from money. My brother's keeper that's a little creepy though.

Quit the sarcasm.

The point of this whole thing is that Obama SAYS, but does not DO.
It's how he got the position of POTUS in the first place.

This is all just another trap for all of you to re-elect him, hoping he will follow through with his 'promises'.

Suckers..

I like the sentiment, I really do, and I understand that social safety nets are the difference between the U.S. and most of Africa. However, the unfortunate truth is that the government just cannot keep its hands off my freedoms while it's doing so.

Things have started to go too far, and safety just isn't worth the amount of freedom that these people take in return.

From the OP's original post.....


QUOTE "When Obama said on Friday, "I am my brother's keeper," he was addressing a crowd of campaign supporters at the University of Vermont in Burlington, Vt."


***************************

It could be something of an epiphany that Revelations is taking place in that statement.

Hows it go? And he would be in the temple and proclaim he was 'GOD' , that is.... he, the AntiChrist..... just a thought...hmmmm....

is he sure that he is his brothers keeper? because I see a greater injustice in the world than some laxed back welfare recipients. You can be a bum on the streets in America and still have it better than alot of places I can imagine.




lets work on disarming these parents before we get too fat and lazy here in the good ole USA.

Barrack Hussein Obama is clearly distancing himself from his obvious Muslim-Islam roots

more & more of the masses are getting uncomfortable with the mans actions & perceived favortism towards the Islamic world & peoples & consider him a closet Muslim who does not share the Christian ethic


there are several articles out there addressing his Muslimism
