There's really no point in engaging you in discussions if you believe that sort of nonsense.
Except that obama's admitted he's a muslim on live tv and his socialist policies like obamacare. But yeah, I'm the one speaking nonsense here.
When you grow up and have bills to pay, you can talk to me then son.

EDIT: it also appears your from chicago. That's the reason you blindly support him. Makes sense now, as most of chicago is brainwashed by the corrupted democratic machine. I guess you support Lord Daley as well.
He is being very transparent. He admitted to not reading the Arizona Illegal Immigration Bill...but he knows they acted "stupidly" as well
You know no more about my geographic location than you do about things political...beyond the worn-out right-wing talking points.
I find it interesting that (almost) everyone is playing these moral-equivalence games. (Think this guy's bad? He's not as bad as that guy over there, and that makes him ok!) Wrong is wrong, folks. My daddy raised me to keep promises and not to make any that I can't keep. If more politicians were raised like that, campaigns would be much cheaper & quieter but I think our gov't. might not be one huge bicker session.
Palin scares me. We'd be at war with Russia and Iran by now if Palin was President. And she'd have her Pastor lay his hand on her blessing her and exclaiming that it is God's will for her to lead America as a "Christian nation" against the heretics of the world.
What does it matter if Obama is a Muslim?? I am pretty sure the Constitution doesn't say anything about the President needing to be a Christian does it??
The Health Care Bill is no more socialist than our military, police force, fire department, public roads, social security and medicare. The bill was a darn insurance bill that benefited insurance companies by giving them more of government money and forcing everyone else to buy insurance. A true socialist health care bill would have, for starters, a public option. There would be a medicare system for more people than just the elderly. Or it'd just simply be a massive single payer system. So people can dislike the health care bill for many reasons, but to freak out that it is evil because of how outrageously socialist it is, is just wrong.
I agree. And that is what is sad about our leaders. For so long we are simply having choose what we believe to be the lesser of two evils. Problem is, the lesser of two evil is still pretty bad. And so as a nation we keep going downhill.
Please show me the proof of this. I've googled the question, and multiple sources including a reputable newspaper have reported that he is a christian.
His father was muslim, but his mother raised him christian. Apparently his father decided to no longer be a muslim before Barack was even born.
And don't argue that I should be the one to find the proof; it's your argument, you back it up.
And anyway, what does it matter if he were a muslim? I thought you were intelligent, it seems you're just another bigot.
Bigot? Right. I say I don't care for any religion mixed with my politics and that makes me a bigot. Gotcha.
I hardly believed you searched anything, its plastered all over youtube, several different videos. Even one of obama bowing to a muslim king. Wtf? Our president bowing to a religious "king"? Eff that.
Or maybe when he refused to salute our american flag during the national anthem? Eff that too.
Do your own research before making false accustions, name calling, and blindly defending a guy who deserves impeachment. Grow up.
Tapatalk. Samsung Moment. Yep.
EDIT: oh and obama did want a public healthcare option. Thank god it didn't pass through congress.
Quoting what's in your profile bud. And a quick ip address trace can confirm.
Its funny when people get shut down they resort to that, "right wing left wing" crap, and they don't know what to do when someone says they stand right in the middle, or even off to the side of either of those "wings"
Tapatalk. Samsung Moment. Yep.
Iowa, It be good if you posted a link of a video of Obama admitting he is a Muslim.
Then you pretty much can't be Republican either. You should be pro-choice. You should rather strongly dislike Sarah Palin. You should really hate Westboro Baptist Church. And you really can't like Bush Jr. either since he was quite religious.
A reminder from the forum ReadMe:
Please pay heed to the above; several contributions to this thread (and indeed others) are straying dangerously close to the limit of tolerance.
I agree: I wonder why some keep bringing it up.
All politicians are the same and that will not change. WHICH PARTY DO I SUPPORT?
Bullsh!t. This is just your wild conjecture from your Palin derangement syndrome.
What a total hypocrite you are. Read your words above, where you mocked Sarah Palin and blasted her for her Christian faith, as your "proof" that she is a bad person that scares you. But for Oilbama his religion doesn't matter and you sound offended. Another liberal hypocrite exposed with their own words. Too easy.
OilbamaCare is much more socialist than social security and medicare. Both of those programs are supposed to based on people that have paid into the system and they receive their benefits in return at a later date. But it has been bastardized by liberals so that people that have never paid a dime into either fund can receive huge benefits as survivor benefits, disability, or their age. Despite the bastardization, social security and medicare still serve those that paid into the system. OilbamaCare will serve a huge section of society that don't even pay taxes.
One sixth of our economy was nationalized with the stroke of a pen. What do you call that? Capitalism?
Read the OilbamaCare bill. If Palin makes you wet your pants, this bill will make you crap them.
Tell me why women will be penalized for being a woman with special taxes they must pay when buying tampons. Or men when buying condoms. Sound outrageous and unbelievable? Thank your Kenyan.
Democrat Health Care Bill is Sexist and Anti-Mom | RedState
There is much more in OilbamaCare that will damage the middle class. And explain to me how illegal aliens will not be eligible when they can simply go to an ER at anytime and they must be treated by law, at taxpayer expense, regardless of OilbamaCare? More lies from liberals and your Kenyan.
Hey, Fenga...are you trying to convince yourself or convince others?
If others, well...
I backed up my comments, something you are want to do. Maybe you should change your screen name to "broadstroke." But I don't give a ratatouille what you think.
Oh? What's in my profile that would lead you to believe I'm in the Chicago area?
Odd, when I pull up anyone's profile in tapatalk it says chicago. Oops. My bad? >.>
As for abortion, no I don't agree with abortion. People should take responsibility for their actions. The only cases I feel abortion should be an option are rapes, and when it puts the mother in physical danger. That's it. Maybe it'll make people think twice about opening their legs to every guy/girl they meet at a bar. Might slow down transmission of std's too.(maybe)
What is it with you people saying it has to be one way or another? Just because I feel one way about one issue, doesn't mean I feel the same about other issues.
And yeah, I tend to disagree with liberals more than others. Why? They like giving everything out for free. No thanks. I was raised on some very simple principles, and they make sense. You don't work, you don't eat. Plain and simple. Unless you have a physical/mental handicap that prevents you from working, you starve.
Why should some person in the ghetto get a home, food, a car, cell phone, cable, and all the other goodies in life without working a day in his life, when I work for everything? Eff that. Seriously, eff that. Taking my tax dollars to pay the way for some lazy pricks to stay home and watch maury all day? Effff that.
That is exactly the reason why I disagree with liberals so much. But I disagree with conservatives on a lot of issues too. Like why give tax breaks and subsidies to large multi-billion dollar corporations? Eff that too. I know, since I'm know picking sides its blasphemy. But I am picking a side. The side of Americans.
Tapatalk. Samsung Moment. Yep.
Well, then, I suggest you don't get one, and that you not interfere with those who want one.
Hey Iowa. Sorry. I really do think you are a very moderate and reasonable person. I was just listing some stuff off the top of my head that are religious and political as well. When I brought up abortion, it was because the largest group of people against abortion are against it because their religion says life starts at conception. And they want to make laws based on that.

If a person is against religion mixing with politics, I don't how that person can support Palin.
As far as I know (and that means as it means, as far as I have seen, read, heard etc), Obama is not pushing to pass laws based on his religious belief. If he is Christian he isn't saying the U.S Constitution should be based on the Bible, or that American was founded as a Christian nation, or he isn't trying to pass laws to prevent women from making their own choice as to have an abortion or not just because his religion says its wrong. If he is Muslim, I don't see him trying to pass laws that women have to always have a male family member escorting them in the streets, or women having to wear a burqa.
As such, I don't care what religion Obama follows as long as he doesn't try to make laws based on his religious beliefs. However, I am against Sarah Palin because I believe she will try to push laws based on her religious beliefs and I do not support that.
But not more socialist that public roads, military, police and fire department?
And the health care bill will also support many people who do pay taxes. So it would seem like the health care bill serve those who do and don't pay taxes, just like...social security, medicare, public roads, the military, the police and fire department.
Hmm very good find. The bill is certainly far from perfect. It is indeed an unfortunate product of our rather befuddled political system. But, I didn't claim it was perfect or even good. Just said it wasn't so evily (not a word, I know. Sorry) socialist.

What would you like explained? People get treated when they go to the ER with a medical problem. It's been that way since 1986. Not sure what you want explained...
Oilbama could not have apologized more to Muslims last year. Oilbama supports terrorists, and I submit that his supporters do as well. How? 15 minutes after the Underwear bomber was taken into custody he was Mirandized on Eric Holder's (meaning Oilbama's) orders. The protection of the Muslim terrorist was the most important thing to Oilbama. Major Hasan carried out a murderous terrorist attack at Ft. Hood, but Oilbama claims it was not a terrorist attack - changing what it is called is another move to try and divert people from the truth and protect another Muslim terrorist. Oilbama has had captured enemy combatants Mirandized to protect them. Oilbama carried out the courts-martial of three Navy SEALs that captured a most-wanted terrorist - because the terrorist got a bloody lip while resisting.
Liberal talking heads and the WH were giddy with excitement when they said the Times Square bomber was believed to be a middle-aged white guy. They were ecstatic. Racial profiling was suddenly en vouge when it was a white guy. Ooops! Turned out to be another Muslim terrorist. Suddenly the liberal talking heads couldn't say enough times how no one should profile Muslims or people that were Mid-Eastern - because racial profiling is not PC....unless you are white.
Yeah, try telling me that Oilbama isn't catering to and assisting the Muslims that hate us with his policies. Oilbama's record proves the opposite. But Palin is evil!!!
Your personal opinion of what Sarah Palin *might* do is irrelevant. Point is that you excuse Oilbama and slam Palin. Your agenda of hypocrisy is showing - again.
The failed argument of many a liberal. Public roads and public services like police and fire department are just that - public services paid for by taxpayers for the good of the community. What do you want, complete privatization? "John's 4th street...you must pay before you enter, then show your permit on demand at check points at each half-block point." "Ricky's police department. Before we respond we must verify you are a customer. If you are not, we will wish you luck!" "Dave's fire department and bar-b-que rib joint. Please press *1* if your service contract is valid...we must verify, of course. If you do not have a service agreement with us, then come by for some bar-b-que!"
I might not mind if the bar-b-que is good.
Community services are different, as I explained above. You nor anyone has a right to health care. Making me and other taxpayers pay for *really* free health care for those that do not pay taxes is socialist. They can go to the ER and still get their taxpayer funded health care, like they do now. And apply for Medicaid. That's what it is for.
Health care reform is needed, but the OilbamaCare bill is more fail than we can afford. Already the CBO has come out and said this bill will cost much more, and it hasn't even started! Seems that now that we can see what is in the bill - thanks Pelosi! - there is a heckuva lot that is excessive. To think that having the government take over a sixth of the economy and save us money - as was the claim - when government can't even run the DMV or schools is a joke.
Point is that Oilbama promised that illegal aliens would not be eligible for OilbamaCare is a total lie. I believe he was called out for that by a member of congress....
Palin was a mistake too. And she would have remained a little-known nobody in Alaska still if McCain didn't try to sway the female vote with a female running mate.
So eff Palin.
See? How hard is that. Neither side is right.
Tapatalk. Samsung Moment. Yep.
the most hysterical thing about politics anymore is left/right wing...
There is only one wing and they do their best to make sure we vote left/right by creating turmoil on the radio/tv between the two... It gives everyone a feeling of I must vote one way or the other...
Imagine we all sat back listened to everything everyone said and never saw the candidate or knew the political party they were affilliated with?
What we would have is an honest and educated election in which the best person for the job would win...
Look around your big corporations... How many people were/are hired/interviewed simply due to race/gender/etc.
If you want the best candidate you would name everyone "john doe", read their credentials interview them by phone and then have a face to face meeting...
Guess who wins the job? The most qualified PERSON... It's really that simple...
Nah instead they have us picking sides and letting complete republican vs democrat bs be the deciding factor on who gets elected for the most important position in the world...
The Irony of it All!!!
It would seem he spent his time apologizing to the whole world, not just Muslims. Or at least that's what opponents say. Besides, an apology is not an act of evil. If there was a wrong act that America has done, an apology would be prudent.
Republican leaders had no problems with the terrorist being Mirandized when they were informed about it. I guess they must be supporting terrorists as well?

As for the Fort Hood, I would agree it was a terrorist attack. It is in the same line as the OK City bombing and the crazy nut case that flew a plane into the IRS building in Texas.

I don't support a court martial of our troops over the singular word of a terrorist. But I wouldn't go for using this as evidence that Obama supports Muslim terrorists. In this specific case the military way over reacted. This was just one man's word that he was abused without evidence so the whole trial is a waste. Thankfully they were acquitted.
FOXNews.com - Navy SEAL Found Not Guilty of Assaulting a Suspected Terrorist
In any event, I do not believe the POTUS is involved in a court martial. I mean as far as I know, I don't believe a President orders a court martial. You were in the military, you would know more about that than me. The "blame" that everything is the POTUS' fault while it is on his watch can only go so far. If Obama single handedly pushed for the court martial then he has mind control powers over nearly everyone because there are a lot of people involved in the whole process.
People who were using this as a political game were dumb. This was about potential loss of lives and a threat to our nation. Racial profiling is not right, no matter the color of a person. I wish I could control people and have them stop being idiotic and playing politics with this, but unfortunately I can't. Hopefully people in this forum are wise enough to learn and know better.
My personal opinion is based on what I have heard from Palin. Given, she is not the President so obviously there is no body of work, but her words have been enough for me to not vote for her.
Anyways, it is great that you are getting out all your anger against "Liberals" against me.
Nope. Just saying there are socialistic aspects in our lives.
And like I said, people who don't pay taxes use public streets and the fire department and police services as well. Again, I am just saying the health care bill is as socialist as those other services.
Obviously I am not sure...you could be for it, but I'd imagine you would be against Medicaid.
Probably true. And so I asked in another forum...what are solutions? Republicans claim they have solutions. Where were those solutions for the 10 years they held control of Congress and 6 years they held control of the White House AND Congress?
Lastly, I guess we will just have to agree to disagree here. I believe health care is more of a right than the "right to own guns" for example. Being sick, suffering and dying is terrible. The pain and hurt for family members is heartbreaking to see. Personally, besides the rights given to us in the Constitution already, I believe everyone should have a right to exceptionally great and free education and a right to health care.
