I may have missed it due to some buffering issues but did Obama say ANYTHING about needing the Police also not acting outside of the Law and not using this to use violence? I heard all the stuff pointed at the protestors to warn them against violence but not the police.
All the time I hear about how if Republicans get the majority Obama won’t be able to pass what he wants and if anyone has been paying attention they might be tempted to vote for the Repubs for that reason alone.
Obama MUST be stopped, if he can pass the legislation HE wants then we get the TPP (Trans Pacific partnership, aka NAFTA on Steroids), cuts to Soc. Security (chained CPI)without the workaround of Congress by his Cat Food Commissions (plural),and more privatization of public services.
How soon people forget that is was the intransigence of Repubs in one of the kabuki ‘debt crisis’ events that failed to accept Obama’s offer of $300 million in cuts to SS.
On domestic policy he makes Nixon a leftist, on foreign policy he has been hard to match in his zeal for acts of war and in private Dick Cheney must praise Obama (Cheney, Bush,Rice,Rumsfeld etc. certainly owe their freedom to Obama and that goes for the criminal Banksters of Wall St.).
I am leaving out so many more examples to cite but to put it as briefly as I can…we don’t need what Obama wants.

The only news that would surprise me about any action by Obama would be if he actually did the right thing-on any subject outside of safe social issues,like representing the interests of the majority of the citizens, not those of the MIC, Wall Street, or the 1% in general and was actually honest to the [...]

Can someone help me post this on Facebook, geeky answers won’t help and I clicked like but I can’t find it on my profile page or home.(I have clicked like on the FDL FB page) Whatever happened to the ‘share’ link for FB? Strange but sometimes (on some sites) when I click’like’I get a FB popup that I can add text and ‘share’.
Fwiw I have lurked daily and have had FDL bookmarked for almost 7 years but it’s been a while since I commented. Thnx for any and all help.
Plus, what’s with all the slanty lines I’m seeing in preview?
