    do as i say or i will go around you and force you to do so,even order to force those who took an oath to violate that oath and break the laws.

    this guy wants to be king of the world,rules by threats and intimidation cartel and mob tactics.

    @Zazziness you call flooding the country with more un needed people going against the peoples? that is going against the citizens,immigration bill will hurt citizens and in no way help. it seems all things he has done are attacks on citizens such as all who support this bill.
  • #7
    If he's ruling by threat and intimidation.. where is that jobs bill? We've been waiting for almost 6 years now for Republicans to come up with one.
  • #12
    @Phreakwars ask who the dems are giving those jobs to. if not only to citizens those jobs mean nothing.importing millions of people to fight against your own citizens for the crumb jobs helps how?

    giving a job to someone who will come here and get paid so low they have to get on social services helps how?

    Obama knows that time is of the essence to create his envisioned socialist utopia brought to us by a continual flood of failed liberal policies -- the following is just a glimpse, or precursor---

    Now, Consider This:

    There are more people on Welfare in Illinois than there are people working.
    Chicago pays the highest wages to teachers than anywhere else in the U.S. averaging $110,000/year.
    Their pensions average 80-90% of their income. You can't blame that on republicans because there aren't any.
    Wow, are Illinois and Chicago great or what?
    Be sure to read till the end. I've never heard it explained better.
    Perhaps the U.S. should pull out of Chicago ?
    Body count: In the last six months 292 killed (murdered) in Chicago .
    221 killed in Iraq AND Chicago has one of the strictest gun laws in the entire US.
    . Here's the Chicago chain of command:
    . President: Barack Hussein Obama
    . Senator: Dick Durbin
    . House Representative: Jesse Jackson Jr.
    . Governor: Pat Quinn
    . House leader: Mike Madigan
    . Atty. Gen.: Lisa Madigan (daughter of Mike)
    . Mayor: Rohm Emanuel
    . The leadership in Illinois - all Democrats.
    . Thank you for the combat zone in Chicago .

    . Of course, they're all blaming each other.
    . Can't blame Republicans; there aren't any!
    . Chicago school system rated one of the worst in the country. Can't blame Republicans; there aren't any!
    . State pension fund $78 Billion in debt, worst in country. Can't blame Republicans; there aren't any!
    . Cook County ( Chicago ) sales tax 10.25% highest in country. Can't blame Republicans; there aren't any!
    . This is the political culture that Obama comes from in Illinois . And he is going to 'fix' Washington politics for us???
    . George Ryan is no longer Governor, he is in the big house.
    . Of course he was replaced by Rob Blajegovitch who is...that's right, also in the big house.
    . And Representative Jesse Jackson Jr. resigned a couple of weeks ago. That is because he is fighting being sent to...that's right, the big house.
    . The Land of Lincoln , where our governors make our license plates.

    But you know what? As long as they keep providing entitlements to the population of Chicago , nothing is going to change, except the state will go broke before the country does.

    "Any man who thinks he can be happy and prosperous by letting the Government take care of him; better take a closer look at the American Indian on reservations, and of course, the Late former city of prominence, DETROIT -- brought to its knees by failed liberal policies!!!

    You are having a hard time realizing that the majority don't Want positive out comes for America. The majority only wanted more Obama. Elections have consequences. Now we must all learn to submit to His Will or fear IRS harrassment or worse.

    @BostonRob yes, Charles I had 11 years of tyranny, and His Excellency will have only 8... unless he repeals the 22nd Amendment.
  • #51
    @Ryuo He is not a tyrant, he is the legally-elected head of the administration branch of our government. He is not a communist. He is not a socialist or a Muslim. He is not stupid. He is not racist. He is not plotting to take away everyone's guns. He is not going to give our nation to the Muslim Brotherhood. He does not kick puppies or children. He is not... any of the many truly malicious and ridiculous things I hear from The Exaggerators every day.

    He's a man. He believes that the government can and should help The People which is a common belief among Democrats -- and they're not always wrong. He makes mistakes sometimes. He does the right thing sometimes. I have never seen him do anything that indicates he wants anything for our nation but success.

    Criticize him? Yes. Lie about him? I wish people would stop it.

    @Zazziness Excuse me Zazzy, but it is Democrats who create the wastelands. Detroit hasn't had a Republican in office for 60 years.

    I've said it before and will say it again. When Mr. Obama was re-elected, he was going to throw all of us (including working liberals/democrats) under the bus to get what HE WANTS.
    I need to revise that just a wee bit. Obama is driving the bus and all of congress are the gleeful little munchkins throwing spitballs in the passenger seats.......BUT
    We, the people, are still going "under the bus"......

    Oh, by the way.....the more Barry threatens to use Executive Orders and the republican congress resists change (OF ANY KIND) just makes that 3rd party or Independents more powerful......

    @stepped_in_it I wish I shared your optimism that independent third parties will emerge as a signifigant national force. I do see some evidence of moves in that direction in local (not yet state) politics in some areas. State level may be impacted in about a decade, but I don't see anything national happening in signifigant numbers...

    I do hope people see the crookedness of these 2 parties and look for a viable solution. I do hear more people claiming Independent (I've been one for 25+ years). My fear is that most will not see the "crooks" until we've already thrown the baby out with the bath water (and the country has gone the way of the Roman's)

    When they have obstructed every bit of progress, for their own selfish party reasons, then it's time to remove the obstacles. The house republicans have held the recovery of this country hostage, in a vein attempt to "make him a one term president" when that failed it became nothing but obstruction for pettiness and nothing else.

    BS! Jeeze, repeating the mantra of the progressives is not exactly news pal. I heard his last whine, "They (supposedly the Republicans) block everything I want to do just because I propose it". Gee, here he is with a Dem. controlled senate and a repub. controlled house (not by a lot) and he's playing the PITY card now? Poor me, they just hate me and I can't get anything done because they all just hate ME. How OLD is he? 12? Other presidents with control of the entire congress in the hands of the other party have managed to WALK ACROSS THE AISLE and broker a deal. This guy is just to fricken' lazy or arrogant to even meet with the Republicans, heck, he barely meets with his own party. No, this is just a little man-child in a job that is totally above his pay grade with a chip on his shoulder the size of the Grand Canyon. Oh, and to lessen your show of ignorance, Google the following to see the REAL and total transcript that included these words "make him a one term president" that you so mundanely threw out. Makes you a bit of a laughingstock.

    I don't think the Republicans have left him much choice when they start talking about deliberately shutting down our government. If the Chinese or Russians openly plotted shutting down our government, we would smite them but somehow the Republicans think it's OK if they destroy us from within.

    "Despotism - is a form of government in which a single entity rules with absolute power. That entity may be an individual, as in an autocracy, or it may be a group, as in an oligarchy. The word despotism means to "rule in the fashion of a despot" and does not necessarily require a singular "despot", an individual."

    "Dictatorship - is defined as an autocratic or authoritarian form of government in which a government is ruled by either an individual: a dictator, or an authoritarian party, as in an oligarchy."

    Interchangeable. Your chosen leader is leading America to its second civil war. Hope you guys are happy. At least you won't have slavery as your crutch this time.

    So you think whatever the Pres wants, he should get? It's a simple thing. Make spending cuts to get a debt limit increase. What's so wrong about that? Oh I know. Some of the freebees would be cut.
  • #135
    "has left him no choice.." than to grossly overstep the constitutional limitations of his office?? You forget that those congressmen were VOTED INTO OFFICE!! The president does not have ultimate authority in this country. If you want your values reflected, you have to respect the values of others. This isn't a fn dictatorship or a kingdom. Obama forces all his crap down everyone's throats and you people act surprised that folks don't like him. Hypocrites.

    Until there is a budget passed by the congress and signed by the president, government needs to be totally shut down. We don't need a dictator signing executive orders and bypassing congress. That is a dictatorship. Liberals can call this Republican obstruction if they choose, I don't give a damn what it's called, it needs to be shut down until a budget is passed and signed.

    I want to make a quick comparison to our own system here: the responsibilities of our head of state (in our case His Majesty the King) are mainly ceremonial and all appointments that do take place (burgomasters, King's Commissioners - basically like your state governors) need the signature of a minister of the cabinet or a state secretary (sub-minister)- usually the prime minister. This minister becomes responsible for the divisions taken ("ministerial responsibility") and as such we don't have executive orders.

    Obama is not going to do anything as the decent elected leaders will not allow it.

    How about shutting the government down until after the hearings to impeach this fool.

    The man is a total and complete embarrassment to everyone that knows him and a failure as a leader. His actions have all but destroyed the Democratic Party.

    My opinion. Shut it down. Nothing in this country at this time is more important than impeaching and jailing this abomination called Barry Soetoro, aka Barack Obama.

    I suggest he needs to be sentenced to life with no chance of parole, or even visitors for that matter at Guantanamo Bay with the rest of the undesirables. Right in the cage next to Hillary.

    @harold_lloyd I hope we ever get it back. The political rhetoric coming from Washington is utterly out of control. Even when the Republicans took the House and were wandering around telling anyone who would listen that their victory was a referendum from the people. What a foolish notion, it was the confluence of the rights districts and seats being up for grabs at a specific moment. The will of the people is pretty clear in polling on the issues, and all too often, they simply aren't voting the will of their constituents, they are voting party rhetoric.

    It's time for these unruly children to sit down and do their jobs. It isn't easy, it may not be fun, but it is certainly necessary.
  • #153

    As much as I hate to say it, it can't be blamed on congress, not ultimately.

    It's our own damn fault.

    We elected people for the wrong reasons, and then sent them off to play at being statesmen.

    We need to fix that, not just changing politicians, but changing our own habits with regard to keeping an eye on what they are doing and who they are doing it for.
  • #260
    @harold_lloyd actually, I think it's pretty safe to blame them. We can only ever replace a third at once, and they have ceased getting the will of their constituents.

    What you're overlooking is the the teabagger/neocons figured out how to game the primary system when the average voter wasn't engaged.

    There is a reason the founding fathers wrote a constitution and set up THREE branches of government. Checks and Balances. Obama has a deep antipathy toward congress, period. He wants to do what he wants, when he wants and takes any opposition as a personal affront. All you progressives, substitute Bush with Obama and re-read the story. Tickled pink now? No, I didn't think so. He did an end run with Cap and Trade that he couldn't get through a dem. controlled house and senate and he's unleashed the EPA with their slew of new rules and regulations without once consulting with even the Senate. Sounds like a dictatorship to me. He doesn't want to be president, he wants to be the Supreme Ruler accountable to no one. Well, you progressives may just live to really regret this little turn of events.
