In his re-election victory speech on Tuesday night, President Barack Obama referred to the United States as a singular “former colony,” when the United States was actually composed of 13 separate colonies prior to gaining independence from the British. “Thank you so much. Tonight, more than 200 years after a former colony won the right to determine its own destiny, the task of perfecting our union moves forward,” said Obama, which was the first sentence of his remarks in Chicago, Ill. Before the United States won its independence from Great Britain with the Treaty of Paris in 1783,
Comments: And to think we get four more years of this. A colony, 57 states, whatever.
"former colony" What! I've never heard that phrase never was taught that phrase and have never used that phrase. Lord Barry sure has a different take on America than I do. (another 4 years with this dangerous idiot, can't wait)
1. Navy CORPSE-man ! 2. 57 states ! 3. My MUSLIM faith ! 4. I ate DOG ! 5. A former colony ! 6. I'll close Gitmo ! 7. I'll UNITE the people of this country !
I never in my wildest dreams serving this country and working hard all my life thought that my vote would be negated by so many dumbasses voting for such an obvious dumbass liar...we truly are surrounded by idiots!
So what? The kids don't care, their parents don't care, the illegals here to grab what they can don't care, but most of all the media, Hollywood and education not only don't care. They really hate anyone who does, because personal accountability and personal sacrifice are wrapped up in the story of how 13 colonies that were tempted to become their own countries, pulled it together.
All the snarky elitists who flirt with socialism and communism want to throw that out and rule us with an iron hand. We will see, but I sure wish more people knew things like what countries border the continental United States.
What's the point in continually pointing out the worn-out truth that stinky is a moron and a tool? Why bother? It comes across as sour grapes, and I think this might in fact be the case.
All the little stinkys ignored the blatant unavoidable truths and voted him in any way, and now we're in deep, deep trouble.
stinky lied, obfuscated and danced around his failures and disasters, and won. The United States is stuck with him for another four years. He won't be called to account for anything, and he definitely won't be impeached. He's wearing two sets of body armor -- sloe-joe biden and hairy reed. stinky is safe and tucked in for four years, and there's nothing we can do about it.
My home has been a stinky-free zone for four years. I think I'll try to make my life stinky-free as well; my postings here and elsewhere, conversations with friends and non-friends; as much as possible, li'l stinky is persona non grata in my home and life, now more than ever.
To hell with him. I can minimize to a small degree the damage his wicked treasonous actions inflict on me, and I will do that. We all will. But apart from that, I've scraped stinky off my boot for the last time. Like I said, to hell with him.
Face it. The guy is a religious figure. He is an icon. He is the Savior of the World. He is the Chosen One. He knows nothing. He sees nothing. He does nothing. He is nothing. He is that empty chair Eastwood spoke with.
And the maroons in this country just re-elected him to four more years of horror.
I am glad I am not Syrian, Israeli, or a resident in any of a number of other countries.
Forget Israel. Tel Aviv will soon be given a Hydrogen Bomb.
Forget Seattle. Seattle will soon be given a Hydrogen Bomb.

The solutions to dealing withe dumbasses who voted for this dumbass.
Boycott liberals in every aspect of your life. Life is so much more pleasant and simpler this way. Patronize conservative businesses.
Do not hire or do business with illegals in any way shape or form.
Red states citizens: Petition your governors and state congresses to cut off funding to illegals. Let illegals seek refuge in the blue states, or better yet, go home until they are legal citizens. Also petition your red state governments to exercise their Tenth Amendment rights and regain control of elections -- tell Holder to butt out. U.N. observers were amazed that ID was not required to vote.
I wonder if sailboat-ears even realizes that this "colony" won it's freedom by throwing off the shackles of tyranny and eliminating the oppressors by bloody revolution. In the coming years he will be dealing with a bigger and more determined TEA party and we are mad as hell already.
PJ Media columnist J. Christian Adams appeared on The Kelly File on Fox News on Friday to talk about his recent article detailing how the Department of Homeland Security has recently hired activist immigration attorneys who worked for pro-amnesty, pro-asylum, and open borders groups in the past. Now, sources inside DHS have provided PJ Media with the employment history and pro-amnesty backgrounds of the newly hired lawyers who will be enforcing federal immigration laws. The ideological histories of these new DHS lawyers undermine confidence that the federal government will vigorously enforce federal laws, notwithstanding any congressional “mandates” to do so.
WASHINGTON -- A longtime adviser to the U.S. Director of National Intelligence has resigned after the government learned he has worked since 2010 as a paid consultant for Huawei Technologies Ltd., the Chinese technology company the U.S. has condemned as an espionage threat, The Associated Press has learned. Theodore H. Moran, a respected expert on China´s international investment and professor at Georgetown University, had served since 2007 as adviser to the intelligence director´s advisory panel on foreign investment in the United States. Moran also was an adviser to the National Intelligence Council,
DEVELOPING: – An elderly U.S. tourist and war veteran detained for more than a month for alleged hostile acts against North Korea has been deported from that country. North Korean state media said Saturday 85-year-old Merrill Newman was released because he had apologized for his alleged crimes during the Korean War and because of his age and medical condition. It was not clear if his confession was coerced. He was taken off a plane Oct. 26 by North Korean authorities while preparing to leave the country after a 10-day tour. Vice President Joe Biden is currently in South Korea on
At the "Fast Food Forward" protest on Thursday, Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) demanded that Pres. Obama sign an executive order bypassing Congress and unilaterally raising the federal minimum wage. Rep. Ellison told the crowd that they should join him in demanding that Pres. Obama skip seeking Congressional approval and raise the minimum wage on his own - and that he sent the president a letter on Wednesday presenting his demand: "We in Congress will try to raise the minimum wage. We got opponents on the other side of the aisle who say that there shouldn´t be no minimum wage. So, we
Wall Street Journal columnist Peggy Noonan joined WSJ Live host Mary Kissel on Friday where they discussed the ongoing issues associated with the implementation of the Affordable Care Act. Noonan said she found the way in which this administration has handled this crisis has been among the “oddest” she’s seen. Noonan added that she would like to see “humility” from President Barack Obama rather than combativeness. Kissel began by asking about the “puzzle” of the president’s response to the crisis surrounding the ACA’s faltering website. “I look at the White House the past two months, I think the president and
Another leftist lets the mask slip. Jonathan Alter believes that violent criminals imprisoned for their crimes are political prisoners. He and Al Sharpton talked to themselves on MSNBC today. Sharpton asked Alter what America might learn from the example of Nelson Mandela. Reasonable answers to this question include but are not limited to: Don’t abuse political power to punish your enemies; don’t hold on to political power forever; choose your wife or husband a bit more carefully; don’t seek to divide when unity serves the nation better. Alter wants America to learn a different lesson. None of the above. Alter
As Congress gets ready to battle on immigration reform next year, it´s important to take a look at who will help enforce and shape any kind of immigration overhaul. Former Department of Justice Assistant Attorney General and radical open borders attorney Tom Perez was safely put into the position of Labor Secretary by President Obama and the Senate earlier this year, knowing the Department of Justice is safely locked down as pro-amnesty. Perez has a long history of advocating not for American workers, but for illegal alien workers and made sure the Department of Justice was stacked with pro-amnesty attorneys
Last summer on his $100 million family tour of Africa, Barack Obama hoped for a priceless photo op with Nelson Mandela, the ailing freedom pioneer who went from prison cell to the presidency of South Africa. Mandela´s family suggested that wouldn’t happen. So, the Obamas did a photo op in Mandela´s former prison cell. Which Obama’s White House quickly tweeted upon word of the icon´s passing at 95. [Skip] But Obama was also caught staring at television coverage of Mandela’s passing, which became Obama’s Photo of the Day.
More young men in California rise in pitch at the end of their sentences when talking, new research shows. This process is known as "uptalk" or "valleygirl speak" and has in the past been associated with young females, typically from California or Australia.But now a team says that this way of speaking is becoming more frequent among men.The findings were presented at the Meeting of the Acoustical Society of America in California. "We found use of uptalk in all of our speakers, despite their diverse backgrounds in socioeconomic status, ethnicity, bilingualism and gender," said Amanda Ritchart, a linguist at the University of
The most curious thing of all about the November jobs report released on Friday was the huge drop in the unemployment rate — and the fact that the Labor Department chose not to disclose that the data going into that figure are under investigation for falsification. On Nov. 19, I broke the news in my column that the Census Bureau, which collects data that goes into the jobless rate on behalf of Labor, had caught one of its enumerators fabricating interviews in 2010. The culprit said back then (and to me during an interview) that he was told to do so by
DAVID CORN: I saw a president who remains frustrated with the political-media culture that he has to work within, and that he´s looking to rally people, students here, and supporters, and people within the media. CHRIS MATTHEWS: But David Corn, you skeptic. He came to us today. He came amongst us. CORN: He´s trying to rally people behind this vision that he´s been promoting for a couple years. FINEMAN: By the way, he did it the end here, today, Chris, not by defending specifics, but by explaining why he´s in the game to begin with. And I don´t know about you, he´s
Speaker John Boehner said his party should support gay Republican congressional candidates and urged his colleagues to “be a little more sensitive” when running against women. “Some of our members just aren’t as sensitive as they ought to be,” Boehner said. When asked if he thinks his party should support gay candidates, Boehner simply said: “I do.”
Denver - A baker who refused to make a wedding cake for a same-sex ceremony must serve gay couples despite his religious beliefs or face fines, a judge said Friday. The order from administrative law judge Robert N. Spencer said Masterpiece Cakeshop in suburban Denver discriminated against a couple "because of their sexual orientation by refusing to sell them a wedding cake for their same-sex marriage." The order says the cake-maker must "cease and desist from discriminating" against gay couples. Although the judge did not impose fines in this case, the business will face penalties if it continues to turn away gay
