Farking Canuck: Is this the thread where republicans would be yelling "yeehaw" if it was a republican president. But instead they are screaming "oh the humanity"?


Yes. Yes it is.

If you knew the Grammys were being held and other things are happening, you're already an idiot.

sn82: zimbomba63: sn82: borg: berylman: Subbers: Is there anythings at all to link the Prez to the grammies other than your distorted illogical fantasies? From what pool do you draw your crazy mana? Can the rest of us have a sip?


Hasn't President Obama  won two or three Grammies for audio books?

The man has a soothing voice.

Maybe he'll "bust a rhyme" and the SOTU,Tuesday night, with Biden beatboxing behind him.  That would be different.

I don't think Biden could be black enough to beatbox.


Well, this is where the Black Congressional Caucus needs to jump in.  They've got all of Monday and most of Tuesday to beat some farking rhythm into him.  It's not impossible!  Well, then again.....but, they have to try, dammit!

The antiwar movement shouldn't get too excited about it's sudden surge in membership. i have the feeling they'll bail Jan.20, 2017.

Jim_Callahan: Though I think this takes me off the fence between thinking he might be serious and thinking he's parodying right-wing arguments to make fun of how terrible he thinks their logic is.  That  has to be intentional mockery, to straight-face that he'd have to be harder-core than Jack Chick.


Just so you don't get the wrong idea, Tom Tomorrow really does not like the President of the United States bombing other countries, even if that president is a Democrat.

Nope, never heard of it.

The antiwar voice became a whimper except for during Syria and only a few hard core members were left criticizing drone strikes. I mean when's the last time they got a fark greenlight? The anti-surveillance people lost a quire few members too until Snowden's leaks.

There is an antiwar movement? When did that happen? Did you think we had something back in '91? There is no anti-war movement in the US.

Code Pink?  And they've done just exactly what now?  Say in 2013, besides telling one another what they would do if anybody ever listened to them, and, in general, seething ineffectually.  Do I sense pent up rage, just waiting for a Republican to be elected, so that it can burst forth, with righteous anger?  Is that the Code Pink, you're talking about?

Weatherkiss: Mad_Radhu: Music's biggest night... to be disrespected. A heartfelt fark YOU guys.

Yeah because it's Obama's fault he forced the media to cut in to the Grammy Awards to break the news of his bombing of Somalia. Yeah, Trent. I'm sure Obama thought that bombing Somalia was the perfect way to disrespect you and your hack artist friends and not because he's the farking President of the United States who thought it was a good time to erase a senior terrorist leader off the face of the planet.

Because Al-Qaeda's operatives work on a schedule to make sure they're in firing range during your pop music circlejerk shows on TV. And Obama clearly controls the media and goes out of his way to inconvenience your friends in the music business just to spite you.


WOW!!!

That's some serious going of the rail right there! They cut in to go to commercial. The show ran long. It was a shiatty move. Had nothing to do with "Obama", nor did Renzor's comment.

Rage on dude!!1 RAGE... ON!!!

Oh, you're young, I marched against Gulf War 1, I knew what it would lead to. Clinton kept up the siege and Jr. and Rumsfeld marched in. Thank goodness we have continuity in government right?

So if we intervened in Syria it would be good; but if we intervene in Somalia, it's bad. Or is it that intervening in Syria is for the right reasons (to kill Assad) but intervening in Somalia is for the wrong reasons (to kill some nameless al-Shabab leader)?

pedobearapproved: Felgraf: TheCruxOfTheBiscuitIsTheApostrophe: He gave the order while grasping his Peace Prize.

I don't... really understand making fun of *OBAMA* with that bit. It's not like he chose to give himself a peace prize.

He did accept it. He should have turned it down and said the real honor would be if you're still willing to give me this award in 8 years.

You can't be a true humanist and the president of the US. That's the joke of it all.



EXTRA EXTRA Obama disrespects Nobel Peace Prize! Spurns international expression of good will towards America! Why does this elitist think he's too good to accept an award from this esteemed organisation!? Some say it is because Muslim Law would not allow it! Others say he is a Communist who wants to outlaw any recognition of one person above another! Is it possible that the Nobel folks are too religious for this Atheist!? Or does he... Just! Hate! Peace!? Our elderly relatives have sent us some truly appalling fwd:fwd:fwds which we will endorse after these messages! Do YOU have a hateful tweet on this subject?! Let us know!
 
2014-01-27 01:54:36 AM
This is just going after Al Shabaab who is behind that big Kenyan mall attack a few months back.  Since we can't exactly send in the FBI and grab them in Somalia, it makes sense to try and pick them off with a drone.  We did try a seaborne raid by SEALs awhile back, but they aborted instead of causing collateral damage (and got away without injury).  Nothing really to see here and it's good for Obama to use the tools in his arsenal to remove threats to ourselves and our allies.

A drone is better option than a pilot or a team on the ground.  If you lose a drone, it is a couple million, you start losing guys and it can lead to a full scale involvement costing billions and trillions and numerous lives. Unfortunately all targets are not as drone friendly as terrorists in remote lawless areas. Drones can breed hostility to be sure, but given the area of operations there isn't a whole lot of options when you identify a threat.  If you kill some terrorist family members and friends, you may make them hostile, but chances are they weren't exactly friendly to the US to begin with.  And anger against the US doesn't necessarily mean people will take up arms and chances are they won't be all that effective anyway so you are degrading their capabilities by removing effective members even if you create a few low level terrorists in the process.

No Problem. Yea Reagan caused all kinds of discussion over Libya and Grenada but both ended up alright, sure, so no harm no foul.

Unless Congress has declared war, everybody involved, from Obama all the way down to the guy who pressed the button, should be sitting in jail awaiting trial for first degree murder. All this accomplished is to give more people a valid excuse to hate the US (IOW, mission accomplished).
