Just a girl. I am a contrary one, but beyond that I am not so unusual, if that is unusual at all. I grew up on a farm, only 35 miles outside of Seattle, closer to Tacoma. Tacoma is a city I lived in for a while. I am now back at the farm, having fully succeeded in not following any of my parent’s advice. Sadly it was all very good advice I didn’t follow. So here I am, eating crow. Were did that saying “eating crow” come from?
"President Obama does not care jack shit about states rights"
"If Obama had been busted for marijuana under the laws that he condones, would his life had been better?" Penn asks. "If he had been busted under his laws, he would have done hard fucking time. And if he had done time in federal prison -- time for his weed 'and a little blow' -- he would not have been President of the United States of America."
Funny Obama has the authority to pull back enforcement of federal Marijuana laws. Instead his justice department is spending a lot of time prosecuting people in states that have legalized medical Marijuana. All while Obama plays at being cool because he smoked a lot of Weed and did more than a bit of blow. States rights mean nothing to to him, nor do the young lives being ruined in jail over things Obama did (not sure when he even stopped or if he did). He brags about doing it, it makes him look like a hipster. But if you do it, his justice department might bust you.
But Obama is such a good president, it must be his great work on the federal deficit that makes you support him (sarcasm)
Name one policy of Obama's that makes you vote for this hypocrite and chief?
Name the one best thing Obama has done for this nation since he been President?
@PrisonerxOfxLove - Fox news forced him to be in Wall Streets pocket. When the average people were losing their homes. Obama was there. Giving money to the banks so the banks would not be hurt when they foreclosed on Joe and Jane Average
America is a white man' s country. Obama is half white. Anyways, nuclear warfare is unavoidable. Trun, it was nice reading you, but honestly, why do you hate Obama, you think Republicans are any different? Our country is facist, you think Ron Paul can change that? You think any one president can fix what is too broken?
@RulerofMasons - no one can not. But its presidential election time and he is one of the many who need to be fired. its politics not personal. I am sure Obama is a nice enough guy. But he is a poor leader ad needs to lose his job

1. health care reform. thanks to Obama, i was able to get back on my mother's insurance for an extra year. that singlehandedly saved my family about $2000.
2. Obama is pro-choice.
3. Obama has come out in favor of same-sex marriage.
i admit, i vote on social issues more than anything else. i don't think either party has a sound plan to fix the deficit, and i don't think anything will be done until things get as bad as they are in Greece or Spain. and i also don't agree with the conservative position of cutting entitlements without increasing revenue, or that the wealthy should be taxed at a lower rate than the working poor.
the general radical tone of conservatives is also a turn off. no way in Hell will i vote for someone who declares that people like me are secret socialist terrorists out to destroy America.
> ordered the strike that took out Osama Bin Laden, ten years after 9/11, and after his predecessor balked when Special Forces were closing in on him at Tora Bora> signed the recovery act that saved the American auto industry and put General Motors back on an even keel that took them back to the world's most successful auto company (supplanting Toyota)> signed the biggest medical reform act that opens up healthcare to thousands of individuals who would otherwise not be covered> rehabilitated America's image around the world so that other countries are far more inclined to work with America rather than against America> encouraged job creation, especially in manufacturing, which has led to one of the longest consecutive streaks of job creation in decades And that's just off the top of my head. You're never going to find a "perfect" candidate; they just don't exist. Even if they did, it's not going to be a positive for the country. Obama is a far better, more qualified, more resolute candidate than Romney ever could be. Romney will be a far greater tragedy for the country than Obama ever could be.
@PrisonerxOfxLove - no he is great because he makes a lower middle class young family with young children help pay for her medical insurance by way of higher premiums. But many think the money just comes from nowhere and the reason insurance cost have doubled has nothing to do with Obama care it is just greed
"So Obama is great because he allows you not to grow up" i wasn't aware that working two jobs, neither of which offer insurance, to support myself was a sign of immaturity. "believes in murdering unborn children" your definition, not ours. "and ruthlessly uses gay people for campaign fundraising." if it's a choice between that and being homophobic to score votes from the extreme right, yup. "When I was a kid, greatness meant something completely different." when you were a kid, interracial marriage was still the work of the Devil. personally, i'm glad to have been born when i was. besides, i'm not aspiring for greatness. i'm aspiring for happiness.
"same sex marriage that is the issue he says is all about states right and he is not going to do anything about it. " true. in the case of interracial marriage, it took intervention by SCOTUS, not the President. i don't doubt that the same will need to happen with same-sex marriage. as for drug enforcement, i'm rather apathetic. i used to smoke pot years ago, but it got really boring really fast. most Presidents have indulged in illegal activities... just as most American citizens have.
@flapper_femme_fatale - My youngest daughter had to have her leg amputated due to a horseback accident when she was 21.She had no insurance.She went round and round trying to get disability and then last may she got married at 26 years old and still was trying to get the disability resolved.She is pregneant now due the end of June and she was able to get Ins with Blue Cross that was paying for the shots she has to have 1 a day everyday $100 a shot because of a bleeding problem she has and they also were paying for everything else,then all of a sudden Medicare says she is covered and Blue Cross had to drop her.Now she has to take money out of saving to pay because Medicare won't pay NEAR what her Ins was paying....Gov healthcare at it's best.The few Gov may help doesn't even COMPARE to the number of people it hurts and you think thats GOOD! You and others like you need to wake your butt up and look at the BIG picture!!!!!
What world do you live in, where an order given in 2011 is credited to someone who was last in office January 2009? Or legislation signed by Obama was pushed by George Bush (the auto rescue - not to be confused with TARP, signed by Bush, for the financial giants) And if medical insurance reform (labelled "Obamacare" by some) was a Bush initiative, why are Republicans and the right now so against it? It is also generally perceived by many that the policies of the Bush administration - primarily unilateral American actions in foreign affairs - isolated the US and led to fracturing and straining of previously strong relationships. Many also believe that it was the invasion of Iraq in 2003 that squandered a great deal of the good will and sympathy America received in the months following 9/11. @trunthepaige - IF Obama was following Bush's war policies, the draw-down of troops in both Iraq and Afghanistan would not be happening - combat missions have ended in Iraq; troop numbers are declining in Afghanistan prior to an end of combat missions by 2014 - both in keeping with campaign promises. Following Bush policies would also have seen American troops in Syria and Libya, which hasn't happened. You also have your candidates mixed up. Romney will be for corporate welfare, to the detriment of the majority of Americans. Obama has the plans, ideas, and gumption to make the tough decisions that will help the majority of Americans improve their lives, rather than the tiny minority Romney counts himself in.
with ya on this one....they are busting the odd dispensery here and there here...why??? God only knows....Leave it be....think he is too much of a puss though and giving into your peeps is why if ya ask me....hommie is a wuss
@flapper_femme_fatale - The point being, you don't know what you're talking about. I have lived in a totally integrated world all my life. And that includes women, Hispanics, Asians and Americans of African ancestory.
Liberals live in a hallucinated nightmare of racism, sexism, homophobia, poverty and exploitation. Yet the Democrat Party policies exploit all those things and more, and your support for it is fanatical.
