Really? I thought there was a means of recall or impeachment written into his employment contract.

He would rather you (whom ever posted this squawl) call him God or King. I prefer not to call him anything.

GeeGee 1 year ago

I have my head in the sand an praying he will go away. God is in control and North Korea has him by his jugs. If you think he is all powerful wake up from the slumber you are in. You are just a dumb example of the type of folks who elected him. Hope your job is not in danger.

What job? His/her job is to vote every four years. The squawker is obviously a welfare junkie.

Your problem is thinking God is control and keep praying,that'll work for sure..ha...what a figment.Like it or not, Obama IS the most powerful man on the planet..keep on hatin

He has several impeachable offenses on his record already and I think this term we will see him open his agenda more fully.

gladileftalbany 1 year ago

and what are those offenses? Please list them for me

Not being an American citizen is one. That fake Birth Certificate he produced doesn't impress me any.

Hey Dumbo, Look who is president. It happened, so who is dumb now...idiot.

Re: the birth thing. Mitt Romney's father, George, went thru the same thing Obama went thru. The elder Romney's foe was Newt Gingrich. George Romney was born to American citizens living in a Mormon church colony in Chihuahua, Mexico. Even though he wasn’t born in a United States territory or state, George Romney was given citizenship at birth because he was born to American citizens, essentially granting him the status of a natural-born citizen. I remember he had his citizenship questioned and a demand to see his tax returns too. George was going to challenge Nixon in 1968. Also, the question arose as to whether or not John McCain would be allowed to run for the presidency since he was not born in the United States but in the Panama Canal zone. This has been going on forever--not only Obama has been questioned but others as well.

The squawker is absolutely right. There is nothing we can do about it. Now. However; as a man who has raised four grown kids, I can tell you that sooner or later, we will be getting that phone call. Dad. You were right. What do I do now? Can you help me get out of the mess I created. Or, more likely, it will be in the form of; It wasn't my fault. They lied to me. You HAVE to get me out of this! (yeah. I have one of those kids too.)

This too shall pass. We will fix it. By whatever means necessary. That is a promise squawker. To you and my grandchildren.

1

gladileftalbany 1 year ago

You wont get that call DR....no one has "lied". You are just so conservative and anti-Obama you just seethe when your kids tell you they voted dem. Its the way the country is going. Are you included in the "We will fix it".You wont fix it..Your grandchildren and great grandkids will.

I agree, Obama doesn't lie except when he opens his mouth.

2

DRTexas 1 year ago

You should take your meds. I'm sure we taxpayers covered that for you. You are probably right though. It will be so bad when your savior is done that it will take until my great grandchildren are grown to get us out of it. At least the debt part. For the record. Three of my kids are more conservative than I have ever been.

You have a nice nap now. OK.

1

gladileftalbany 1 year ago

I will have a nice long nap...after I sell my business I built myself for 10 years and then not do crap for the next 5. Ha..yes this is what I do. I am an entrepreneur...and for the record,he's not my savior.He was just the better choice of the 2.

This cup of water I made 4 minutes ago..and this dude that lived 2,000 years ago loves it,amazing. I also heard he can make you live for ever and if you dont beeive in him you'll go to hell eternally. Wow, I get the short end of the stick if I don't believe what you believe.

I just wonder what it is you put in your water, because it obviously affects your mind.

0

gladileftalbany 1 year ago

My water is fresh Rocky Mtn snow melt,which means it seeps into the ground into my well then it is potable,no purifiers,or flouride,just pure,fresh mountain water. I'm willing to bet there are more chemicals in your city of Awlbinnny water..just sayin

0

Sally_O 1 year ago

Well you must have some pollutant chemicals in your well, because your mind is all messed up. Just like that old beer commercial "Drink the beer, but don't drink the water" You probably had a combination of both.

ya pollutants...we have so many. You ever been in the mountains, and I don't mean Gatlinburg or Cherokee

Sally_O 1 year ago

Put them all on air force one, make good use out of it. Why leave them out there to get killed for no reason? Soldiers last week were killed and would have been alive today if the almighty have brought them home. I guess Obama is hoping more will get killed while they are there. You can make excuses that Bush started the war, but the great almighty has been there 4+ years and they are still there. He had plenty of time to bring them home. It's better to ship them home alive than ship them home in a casket.

1

gladileftalbany 1 year ago

Sally- Please go fry me some chicken. Air Force One? Leave them there to get killed? Obama hoping soldiers will die? It's something called logistics. Do you know what that means? Apparently not if you think Air Force One is the best option BTW-Last time I checked Bush sent the troops first and didn't get it done. Obama sent more and we got a dead bin Laden.

0

Sally_O 1 year ago

Then why are they still there idiot? If the job is done, why are they still there? Why keep them there to die if the job is done? go fry your own stupid @ssed chicken.

1

FryarTuk 1 year ago

gladfly, you are essentially correct that it was W who started military ops there and it was right after 9/11/81. His war machine sidetracked the Afghan effort in an effort to whup Sadam who was a fairly easy target. Arguably, the ops in Afghanistan should have been more forceful. Obama pumped more men, equipment and efforts in Afghanistan and justifiably earns credit or criticism. I agree BHO has done a much better job militarily than the lot of W, Condi, Wolfie, Dickie, Rummy and the other Little Rascals.

0

gladileftalbany 1 year ago

Essentially? I am correct. The Bush family had been salivating over Iraq's oil ever since daddy W had training wheels. Irag was for the benefit of American big business, Halliburton ,Bush family etc,not the Iraqi people or WMD.

0

Sally_O 1 year ago

You are correct in your own warped mind.

1

FryarTuk 1 year ago

Gladfly, you would be better discussing the wisdom of the Iraq invasion politically and diplomatically ( Doctrine of Pre-emption) as opposed to dumping on American business interest who have had little to do with Iraq oil due to instability of Iraq and region. China controls most of the oil drilling and fields. Halliburton has very little production interests there and to my knowledge Bush family has none. If you have information other than an opinion, please share.

As for the Afghan conflict, I think it's fair to say Obama owns it regardless of W & CO's initiation. And I don't assert O has bungled it. In fact I maintain the military activity of his administration has been his long and strong suit. Did not vote for him or the gilded governor wrote in for Ron Paul.

(Error in above note I mistakenly entered date of 9/11/01 as year of 81.)

You folks know impeachment is not removal. Bill Clinton was impeached. Tried but not convicted in the Senate. Even in the unlikely event the GOP controlled House voted articles of impeachment, the Democratic Senate would not convict.

Enough said, Democrats are not going to vote for their welfare and food stamp programs to go away....and don't forget about those free cell phones.

You should try it. It will broaden you views beyond following any party lines.

If you are not affiliated with either party then why are you supporting Obama so heavily? True democrat, lying out of your own face. It would be nice if you changed your name to gladileftamerica.

Better not disagree with the POTUS or you will be labelled a racist. To bad he isn't neon green.... maybe then will the 96% of the black population that voted for him will see past his skin color and see his failure as president. Talk about racist!!!!! I was listening to a "Black" radio station during the election race. NEVER did they once mention his policies, his agenda, his promises, or his record..... IT WAS ALL ABOUT THE SINGLE FACT THAT HE WAS BLACK!!! Who are the racist in this counrty?

2

gladileftalbany 1 year ago

Actually,the black vote is only about 8% of the total vote so it was whites who voted him in,so no race issue there.Next

0

Sally_O 1 year ago

But he got 100% of the black vote. If whites voted him in as you say, then it just proves OUTsiderLookingINalbany's point that Blacks are way more racist than whites. If whites were as racist as most blacks think, then 100% of the white people would have voted for Romney. Honestly, how many black people voted for Romney?

1

GeeGee 1 year ago

Only 3% of blacks voted for Romney. They are so mired in the Democratic doctrine it makes slavery look tame. At least the slaves could earn money and think for themselves. The Democratic party does not want you to question anything. Just vote.

Do those of you who obviously possess a higher intellect than we scum have any suggestions about what a president should do? Which laws should be enacted to give that office the power you think it should have? Do you have any ideas on how to make affording life equitable? Which jobs would you have people obtain?

How should we deal with enemies? With friends? Should we get rid of the empire and install a dictatorship where one person makes all the rules?

Just curious: squawkers hate the pres so but offer no real solutions. Impeachment is not a real solution; it is a fix to your problem with the current pres.

Please someone offer real solutions!!

Flat tax, restructure entitlements, 20% corporate tax, do away with dept of education, homeland security, commerce and EPA. Drill oil and build 20 new refineries. Build the Keystone pipeline. Stop spending on "green energy". Build up military and bring all troops home. Stop flying around on Air Force One and send the Obama bus back to Canada. Build a wall along our borders and shoot to kill.

3

erudite 1 year ago

Just like Iran, N. Korea, Libya, Syria, and of course Israel. They are great stable examples. Thanks for sharing Pappa.

So flat tax or corporate tax? Build up military but bring them home? So you would get rid of AF One for all presidents? I guess then the rest of the Presidential fleet(s). If we build borders and can shoot to kill, can the people on the other side shoot to kill too? Does this include Canadians? Do we return all of the colonies to independence (Hawaii, Guam, Midway, Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico) so that they are not shot/killed by accident as they comes onto the continent?

When was the Obama bus in Canada?

The words “there’s nothing you can do about it” reminds me of the time when I was 5 years old and another kid on the beach had the plastic shovel and wasn’t willing to share. I didn’t argue. I was just surprised that someone could think that a plastic shovel was so valuable. A lot of Obama supporters strike me the same way that kid did. Just because they have the shovel and you don’t doesn’t mean you have to be sad or worry or stop your efforts to succeed. Let them keep the plastic shovel. Let them be happy. Maybe they’ll even run off down the beach with it so they can slobber on it in private like that kid did. This allows you the time to use your own hands to build the two story sand castle with attached garage for a Mercedes Benz fire truck and a swimming pool for dolphins out in the back yard. Life is short. You should try to enjoy it. Don't let the shovel coveters ruin it for you.

I didn't vote for Obama...I don't know who he is, where he came from, how he got to the forefront to be elected....and YES, many voted for him ONLY because of his skin color...not what he stood for. Y'all want to get rid of him, but I think we, as a nation, could be in much deeper doo-doo if the "next in line" had to fill the position of POTUS.....now THAT is SCARY !!!!!!!!! It might provide more entertainment...just how stupid can one person be? I just pray the good Lord will see us through the next 45 months, and then provide us with someone who really cares about the direction the USA is headed. I don't know if that is possible today though, too many people want the freebies and don't want to work to try and better themselves.
