Obama has threatened to veto any bill that comes to his desk that imposes more sanctions on Iran. He certainly can stand up to the Republican controlled congress. He is all hardline on them. Iran doesn’t live up to its side of the bargain re: their nuclear bomb building program. Obama lets them miss deadlines. He extends their negotiations for months on end. They keep working on a bomb and Obama won’t hold them accountable.
Here is my suggestion:
Let congress pass harder sanctions. Sign that bill. Then when the Ayatollah has a fit, send Sec. of State John Kerry and a pop star over to Tehran to sing to him. If James Taylor isn’t available, perhaps Yusuf Islam a.k.a.Cat Stevens could sing Peace Train while holding up the fatwa on Salman Rushdie. John Kerry could kiss the Ayatollah and peace would reign in the world.

Another laundry list of taxes and government giveaways. The world according to Obama. Tax and Spend. We have crested the wave and are recovering. (5 plus years and still not recovered – slowest recovery in modern times.)
So here is the part I really liked. He tells us how we should all play by the rules:
“That’s what middle-class economics is — the idea that this country does best when everyone gets their fair shot, everyone does their fair share, everyone plays by the same set of rules.”
Obama wants people to play by the rules? Then why did he just grant executive “amnesty” to 5 million illegal aliens? Did they play by the rules? Watch what he does, not what he says.

While Pres. Obama goes around touting the unemployment number and the so-called Recovery, it turns out he is about 5 millions jobs created short. Meanwhile, the Oil Patch, and Oil Companies are laying people off. Those skilled people won’t have other jobs to go to. Their higher salaries will be gone.
This post was interesting. All the Obama stimulus promises are were a waste of money. Just like all the Obamacare promises about keeping your plan and your doctor. Just like that promise about the average family saving $2500 a year because of Obamacare.

I do not care that Obama decided or Valerie Jarrett decided that Obama was not to attend the march in Paris this last weekend against Islamic Terrorism. I do believe that at the very least, Obama’s good friend and protector, Eric Holder who was in Paris should have attended. But he had other things to do. The Obama administration holds tightly to the notion that the problem is not really Islamic extremism. They now spin the line that the bad guys are not Islamic at all. Evidently, they now get to decide who is the true Islam.
The march is symbolic. Symbolism is OK. The march was not the other adherents of Islam in France telling the extremists that they cannot pervert Islam. No. It was the other people of France, rightfully appalled by the terrorism. The march was appealing in it’s multitudes, but not something that will matter in 6 months. It is evidently impossible to shame the Islamic terrorists. The march will be just like the “#BringBackOurGirls” campaign in April. It’s a symbol. Symbols do not hurt the people doing this. They fear nothing.
Meanwhile, the Barbarians keep on growing. Beheading those from the West, killing whole villages in Nigeria, passing out kidnapped girls for sex and marriage, murdering young people in their classes, lashing bloggers (in civilized Egypt), blaming the Jews for Charlie Hebdo (from NATO member Turkey, another civilized nation), teaching their children to kill with guns, giving their children dismembered heads to show off, telling their children to hate with cute and crude TV cartoons, stoning gays, mutilating the genitals of young women, on and on ad nauseam.
Obama’s answer to this is empty Guantanamo, give speeches, and cling to the notion that the problem lies not in Islam, not in the confusing Koran, and is somehow caused by the United States. His outreach and apology tour has borne fruit. Meanwhile, back at the White House, rested from a few weeks in Hawaii, Obama watches football.

Thank goodness these adherents to Islam, the religion of Peace and Tolerance, didn’t torture these innocent school children. They just came into the school in Pakistan and shot them to death. They didn’t waterboard them, deprive them of sleep, play loud and bad music, force feed them, or threaten to feed them bacon through an IV. They are apparently morally superior to us here in the US. We tortured a few grownups. They mowed down young children with guns, and they cut off Christian children’s heads for not converting to Islam.
Sen. Dianne Feinstein stands above us all.

Thanks so much Senator Feinstein. You have climbed to the summit of your moral high ground to tell us all what we all know. The United States has used torture against our enemies. You thrust out your chin and told us all just how bad you and the other Dems on your committee think we are. You cleansed yourself. Thanks so much for doing this a few weeks before one of our sons deploys to Obama’s muddled Middle East.
A few questions:
Did you concern yourself with how this throws gasoline on an already raging fire? Is the revelations in this report worth another one of our citizens or another member of our military being killed or tortured in response. Will you sleep when ISIS/ISIL announces it will kill again because of these old revelations (in vivid detail) in a shiny book form for us all to read? I won’t be getting much sleep because of it.
$40,000,000 expense? Really. You are borrowing from my unborn grandchildren to fund your moral hobby high horse?
In this shiny book, is there any evidence that we threatened on video to cut off some detainee’s head, posted video’s to the parents of the detainee, then made another video cutting off the head of a detainee for all the world to see? No. I don’t think so.
Are you feeling guilty that you went along with this for a time?
How do you think Putin and Kim Jong Un will suddenly get religion and make mea culpa reports on their abuse? They are laughing at us.
Do you not believe in covert action to serve our purposes? Many of us do believe in such action.
So your $40,000,000 report says no good intel was gained by this? There are those who say otherwise but you don’t include their opinion. I am pretty certain that some good intel came from this. Not none. But some. Not as much as the CIA says was obtained, but certainly not “none”.
Are you willing to send one of your grandchildren into harms way beside my son after revealing this one sided report?
OrAre you just really pissed off that Obama’s CIA was hacking your office computers and you want to make them pay? How dare they do that to someone as important as you.
Obama just drones them. Is this better? Do we get any intelligence when they are droned from afar?
Those who now provide some intelligence will no longer do so because they know a report on their actions will be churned out of a Senate Committee by a Woman with High Morals.

I think he is a carrier and not just a sufferer.
So Obama was briefly hospitalized yesterday with symptoms of heartburn. Erring of the side of caution, he was given a CAT scan due to swelling in his throat.
I do want the President taken care of and given all that tests and necessary medical treatments. Normal treatment might be Tums and Rolaids or even some Prilosec or Nexium. They would probably schedule a colonoscopy or other scope down the esophagus in a few days to detect any problems. I definitely remember his physical a few years back and the virtual colonoscopy he was supposed to have had. A virtual colonoscopy would have been far more dignified than the regular one. So in healthcare “overkill” the President has been given a CAT scan.
I have had heartburn for 10 years. Never had a CAT scan. Wouldn’t be covered by my insurance or any Obamacare policy.

Your hearts are broken. You have lost a son. Any way it goes down, it is a tragedy. I am the mother of 3 young men and I hate to think that the mistakes they make in their early adulthood would result in ruined lives. I can even remember the mistakes I made in my early adult years and I would not want to be judged on those mistakes. None of us were fully adult in those early years. Stupid is what I would call it.
Did you teach young Michael to not steal? If you did, how do you explain his theft of the cigars?
Did you teach young Michael to not hurt others? If you did, why did he strong-arm the clerk at the store?
Did you teach young Michael that smoking dope isn’t good? Did the dope make him forget that stealing is bad and hurting others is not acceptable?
Did you teach Michael that the police are bad or out to get young black males?
If Michael had been taught that stealing and hurting others is bad, and he had done these awful things anyway, it still could have all been handled in a way that wouldn’t have torn apart so many people’s lives. If you had taught him to respect the police, he would have been arrested and thrown in jail. If this was his first offense, he would have gotten a minor sentence or probation. Instead, he attacked the officer and the officer used lethal force to defend himself.
A town is ruined, and so many lives are ruined. All for $100 theft. So sad.
