Out of curiosity, why? What do people in New Zealand think of him?

Honestly, in New Zealand, there are mixed reactions but alot of people like him for his views on the world and what he is trying to do with healthcare in the US.

Sad that there are so many supporters of socialism.


I can't remember the site now, but I do remember a cool site in New Zealand that did a great job of showing Obama's policies and their historical ramifications.  It was quite good.

And once again, Obama is going to ignore the law... this time refusing to enforce federal law regarding marijuana.  Now, do I agree that it's none of the federal government's business?  Anyone that knows me knows that I think the "war on drugs" is stupid and that those laws should be left up to the individual states... but Obama is once again choosing which laws he will uphold and which ones he'll just ignore.  IMO, he should work with Congress to dump that law.


So much for his oath of office (again.)

Anyone else think it's odd that Obama ignores tens (hundreds?) of thousands of Christians being killed in multiple middle eastern countries, but then says that he must attack yet another country (Syria this time) because he says they used chemical weapons on a few hundred people?


I'm also wondeirng why Obama has backtracked to get Congressional approval....  I'm thinking it's because he wants to use it as a way to show who in Congress will "do the right thing" (in his mind) and support another attack on another country which is no threat to the USA.  For those congressmen who choose to not interfere in the internal affairs of another country (Prime Directive,) they're going to be vilified as "uncaring", etc.

Well.... talk about slick....  After one of Obama's pet projects was defunded, he changed the name of it so that it wouldn't get the ax!

Here's an example of the people that Obama wants to support in Syria...

I'm very much reminded of a little histry a few years ago in Cuba... Castro trying to overthrow Batista.... both sides are bad news.

Let's see.... Obama supported the overthrow of the Egyptian government by the Muslim Brotherhood.... helped overthrow the Libyan dictator and now wants to attack Syria...  (and I'm not counting him forcing certain clauses into the new Kenyan Constitution - going against their views.)


Anyone remember why Obama got a Nobel Peace Prize?

Imagine that... while Obama is having Eric Holder sue states because the states want to make sure that those people who vote are actually eligible and the people they say they are....


Holder is refusing to take on a county that has more than twice as many registered voters – 124 percent more — than voting-age-eligible residents.

But of course, Obama like having things incorrect if it'll help him....  Why stop dead people from voting for him?

According to BLS numbers, A record number of 90,473,000 Americans are not in the labor force -- Up almost 10M during Obama's reign.


http://cnsnews.com/news/article/terence-p-jeffrey/90473000-record-number-not-labor-force-almost-10m-under-obama


 


Anyone remember when the labor participation rate was that low before..... welll, it is now the lowest point since August 1978 (remember what type of government we had back then too.)


 


 


But then again... considering how the official unemployment numer has gone down one half of one percent (0.5%) in Obama's 56 months in office...nobody is shocked...

Hmmm.... Per BLS, the number of government workers went up 324,000 between July and August while the number of private sector workers declined 278,000.

Looks like Obama actually fought for restrictions on the NSA to be reversed, allowing them to do even more snooping on US Citizens.

Isn't it interesting that the federal deficit for August increased by $146 BILLION, but the debt still hasn't officially changed? 


So... in the 112 days that the debt has offiicially stayed frozen at $16,699,396,000,000, the deficit continues to accumulate?  Does Obama really expect all of us to think that 0 - 146,000,000,000 = 0???
