Obama Orders Pay Raise For Congress, Federal Workers, Joe Biden



So pitiful you have to laugh at this stage. It would be nice if America got together and marched onto DC to cast out all these bums. Things like this is why I didn't vote for him.


I'm going to have to ask my dad to borrow his t-shirt he got for Christmas.

Seriously, **** Obama. Hope he stumps his toe and hurts him the next 4 years. Fiscal cliff coming and this asshole is giving Congress and the feds a raise. A congress that has a 9% approval rating.

Re: The Obama Years- A GOP love story

King: I Have a Dream. Obama: I Have a Drone

A simple twist of fate has set President Obama’s second Inaugural Address for January 21, the same day as the Martin Luther King Jr. national holiday.

Obama made no mention of King during the Inauguration four years ago — but since then, in word and deed, the president has done much to distinguish himself from the man who said “I have a dream.”

After his speech at the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom in August 1963, King went on to take great risks as a passionate advocate for peace.

After his Inaugural speech in January 2009, Obama has pursued policies that epitomize King’s grim warning in 1967: “When scientific power outruns moral power, we end up with guided missiles and misguided men.”

But Obama has not ignored King’s anti-war legacy. On the contrary, the president has gone out of his way to distort and belittle it.

In his eleventh month as president — while escalating the U.S. war effort in Afghanistan, a process that tripled the American troop levels there — Obama traveled to Oslo to accept the Nobel Peace Prize. In his speech, he cast aspersions on the peace advocacy of another Nobel Peace laureate: Martin Luther King Jr.

The president struck a respectful tone as he whetted the rhetorical knife before twisting. “I know there’s nothing weak — nothing passive — nothing naive — in the creed and lives of Gandhi and King,” he said, just before swiftly implying that those two advocates of nonviolent direct action were, in fact, passive and naive. “I face the world as it is, and cannot stand idle in the face of threats to the American people,” Obama added.

Moments later, he was straining to justify American warfare: past, present, future. “To say that force may sometimes be necessary is not a call to cynicism — it is a recognition of history; the imperfections of man and the limits of reason,” Obama said. “I raise this point, I begin with this point because in many countries there is a deep ambivalence about military action today, no matter what the cause. And at times, this is joined by a reflexive suspicion of America, the world’s sole military superpower.”

Then came the jingo pitch: “Whatever mistakes we have made, the plain fact is this: The United States of America has helped underwrite global security for more than six decades with the blood of our citizens and the strength of our arms.”

Crowing about the moral virtues of making war while accepting a peace prize might seem a bit odd, but Obama’s rhetoric was in sync with a key dictum from Orwell: “Who controls the past controls the future; who controls the present controls the past.”

Laboring to denigrate King’s anti-war past while boasting about Uncle Sam’s past (albeit acknowledging “mistakes,” a classic retrospective euphemism for carnage from the vantage point of perpetrators), Obama marshaled his oratory to foreshadow and justify the killing yet to come under his authority.

Two weeks before the start of Obama’s second term, the British daily The Guardian noted that “U.S. use of drones has soared during Obama’s time in office, with the White House authorizing attacks in at least four countries: Afghanistan, Pakistan, Yemen and Somalia. It is estimated that the CIA and the U.S. military have undertaken more than 300 drone strikes and killed about 2,500 people.”

The newspaper reported that a former member of Obama’s “counter-terrorism group” during the 2008 campaign, Michael Boyle, says the White House is now understating the number of civilian deaths due to the drone strikes, with loosened standards for when and where to attack: “The consequences can be seen in the targeting of mosques or funeral processions that kill non-combatants and tear at the social fabric of the regions where they occur. No one really knows the number of deaths caused by drones in these distant, sometimes ungoverned, lands.”

Although Obama criticized the Bush-era “war on terror” several years ago, Boyle points out, President Obama “has been just as ruthless and indifferent to the rule of law as his predecessor.”

Boyle’s assessment — consistent with the conclusions of many other policy analysts — found the Obama administration’s use of drones is “encouraging a new arms race that will empower current and future rivals and lay the foundations for an international system that is increasingly violent.”

In recent weeks, more than 50,000 Americans have signed a petition to Ban Weaponized Drones from the World. The petition says that “weaponized drones are no more acceptable than land mines, cluster bombs or chemical weapons.” It calls for President Obama “to abandon the use of weaponized drones, and to abandon his ‘kill list’ program regardless of the technology employed.”

Count on lofty rhetoric from the Inaugural podium. The spirit of Dr. King will be elsewhere.

Sen. Paul to Sec. Clinton: I would have relieved you of your post - The Washington Post


Senator Paul (the other one) drills Clinton pretty good about Benghazi. I agree with him totally. I like how she played coy about the gun shipping question.

Wanted to share this rant by Dr. Cornell West. Very powerful and amazingly accurate.

Great job!

Is that why cable requests for additional security were ignored? I wouldn't call that "one hell of a job!" If anything, I'd call it a failure to do her job. My post with the Rand Paul article wasn't about how she fared versus the opposite party. I could care less how she "fared" in the political arena, and she is right that a good amount of the questions are politically motivated. I mean, who really gives a **** if the American people were told it was a spontaneous attack or a terrorist act at first? An attack is an attack. The primary issue here is that requests for additional security were ignored, in a place that was a hotbed for potential terrorist activity.

Going to LOL at the MSNBC link. You can do better bro.

I like the "no cash" comment, especially in the context of Reagan. What is with the bizarre amnesia this country has with the Reagan administration? Does anyone recall the massive amount of debt he put our country in? I'm just dumbfounded that conservative deficit hawks so often deify Reagan. I've got no problem with deficit hawks in theory (I'd like a balance budget as much as anyone) but ignoring the fact that Reagan is the grandfather of massive deficit spending in our country is a terrible example of revistionist history. He did do one really good thing though: he ended the Cold War. Or wait, was that because the USSR went bankrupt funding a war in Afghnistan? Wait a minute......

First off, I don't read that site and have no idea what kind of site it is. I merely posted it because it showed the idiotic tweets that Todd Kincannon posted. The story provided no commentary or slant, just showed us the tweets, which is why I posted. That and to show that the GOP thinking really hasn't changed and probably never will. As far as your other stuff, I have no idea why you are bringing up Kings Mill or anything else related.


Which leads me to this....

GOP’s “makeover” is purely cosmetic
