The 2-year-old Omaha boy who unwittingly prompted a debate about the culture of gang violence was wounded three months ago in a shooting inside his own home. His 17-year-old father, D´Marco Pope, was killed last spring in what police said appeared to be a gang-related shooting. His grandmother was arrested last month after five guns were found in the house. She now sits in jail facing a weapons charge. His grandfather was sent to prison last year, convicted of a weapons charge. The little boy who was coaxed by adults to utter profanities for an online video has grown up

If Obama had a little boy, this would be he.

Oh wait, he does have a little boy, and millions others, who are this little boy.

Clearly we need to spend more money on "programs" and "assistance" to address the situation.

This is the main reason we have poverty in this country. Out of wedlock births to ignorant, uneducated, uncivilized barbarians. And obama and the dems want us to turn over more of our income so we can be more "equal".

Get that poor child out of that "family" and adopted into a home where he can have some chance at life. This should be front page news across the country. The spoils of the 50 year war on poverty.

#3 – The “equal” fig-leaf is rapidly shriveling up and blowing away, as decent people realize that the purpose of misappropriating our income is to buy the votes of the ignorant barbarians so that the evil barbarians can control us all.

At some point – possibly as early as this summer – the abuses will reach critical mass. How we handle the explosion will determine our future as a nation.

I doubt this child can be saved. He´s three and still in diapers and doesn´t speak very well, I really couldn´t understand what he was saying in the video. Multiply this by millions across the country and this is what our $20 trillion has purchased.

#7, is he 2 or 3 as I thought the same thing if he was 3 (in diapers). The father was 17 and murdered. he two 38 ish grandparents were both in jail (surely, not legal gun owners). Now his male influences are probably the dead dad´s gangbanger friends.

#5, there are not enough families to accomodate all those in need. Get this kid a reality show as that is where all the tragedies are highlighted.

If you want more of something subsidize it. In this case we (taxpayers) are subsidizing the unwed mothers, not one baby but many (more babies more money). If you want less of something don´t pay for it.

I would be more than willing to say to these women: first one is on the taxpayer, next one is on you and its daddy. If you fail to care for both you lose both and the money. That will bring a halt to stories like this.

And if he requires discipline in school blame the school for being racist.

And if he doesn´t graduated from high school blame it on the teachers.

So much blame to go around, too bad none of it falls on the parents (and those supporting their "lifestyle.")

This is how the gangsters first start getting their ghetto education. Then when they get into the public schools and refuse to learn, the parents, who are in gangs themselves file a social security disability claim in their child´s name claiming a very loosely defined learning disability and collect about $700.00 a month while the kid continues disrupt the school for years, and most times fails to even learn to read. Some of those parents have a number of their children on the same type of learning disability and collect another $700.00 or so for each one of them. Add all that up by the millions and you can see why the inner city public schools are in serious trouble, and the violent ghetto gang culture is flourishing. In response, the liberal Democrats do not want the schools to be even able to take any disciplinary action against the gangster thugs, and insistently call for more government money to be used on useless social welfare programs. Of course just about all of the inner city parents who vote, cast ballots for the liberal Democrats. Unfortunately that situation will only get worse.

Update: Nikko Jenkins´ mental state is again under review. Douglas County District Court Judge Peter Bataillon on Wednesday granted a hearing to determine Jenkins´ competency to be tried on four counts of first-degree murder. Bataillon set the competency hearing for Feb. 12. Prosecutors and defense attorneys will present the opinions of separate psychiatrists who have most recently reviewed Jenkins´ mental state. In the two years before his release into the general population of Omaha, Nikko Jenkins wasn´t even released into the general population of his prison.

Last Year President Obama
Reportedly Told His Aides That
He´s ´Really Good At Killing People´
Business Insider, by Michael Kelley    Original Article
Posted By: bluehouse- 11/3/2013 12:59:08 PM     Post Reply
This will not go over well for the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize winner. According to the new book “Double Down,” in which journalists Mark Halperin and John Heilemann chronicle the 2012 presidential election, President Barack Obama told his aides that he’s “really good at killing people” while discussing drone strikes. Peter Hamby of The Washington Post noted the moment in his review of the book. The reported claim by the commander-in-chief is as indisputable as it is grim. Obama oversaw the 2009 surge in Afghanistan, 145 Predator drone strikes in NATO’s 2011 Libya operations, the May 2011 raid that

Ever since Ronald Reagan left the White House in 1989 with the Departments of Energy and Education still intact, limited-government conservatives have become accustomed to disappointment. The struggle against the colossus is by its nature a losing one, and conservatives have learned to live with low expectations. But do they have to like it so much? As The Daily Caller’s Jeff Poor notes, Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer laid down a celebrated defense of conservative principles Wednesday during a TV appearance with “Daily Show” host Jon Stewart. While Fox News, where Krauthammer is a regular contributor, gave this one the headline

From listening to the banal musings of inside-the-beltway Republicans, one would come away with the impression that we are just six Senate seats away from curing all our political and policy ills. These wizards of smart believe that we must refrain from engaging in risky policy battles until after the next election, when presumably, we stand to win back the Senate. To that end, they accuse some conservative groups of working to undermine a Republican majority, both by engaging in “unwinnable” fights and by working to replace incumbent Republicans instead of focusing exclusively on growing our numbers from 45 senators

If you believe the Democrats (and some Republicans) the biggest threat to the Party of Abe is a man named Ted. It’s tempting for the GOP to believe that all it needs to do is practice some Cruz Control and wait around for Americans to wake up and realize that it is the sensible party with the moderate solutions. And if that doesn’t work… there are always the elections of 2020 or 2024… or 2124. If you don’t fight, you can’t win.

It is hard not to enjoy the spectacle of Obamacare crashing on takeoff, but it is also important not to lose sight of the real issues. The essential problems with Obamacare have nothing to do with IT. A web site can be fixed, and presumably will be, but Obamacare can’t be. The fundamental problem with Obamacare is that Obama promised the impossible: more people having broader insurance coverage for less money. It can’t be done. The Democrats babbled about “bending the cost curve,” but that was pure BS. Obamacare does nothing to bring about efficiency in the delivery of medical

He also spoke firmly of his commitment to keep the government open. “A government shutdown is off the table,” he says, looking ahead to a possible impasse early next year. “We’re not going to do it.” Costa: When did you know this standoff was finally ending?

President Obama’s refusal to sign a bill defunding or delaying his health care law and Republicans’ insistence that such measures be a part of any bill to continue funding government are what precipitated the ongoing government shutdown. Both sides are staking out firm positions because they are operating on the same assumption – that once Obamacare starts to roll out subsidies on Jan. 1., it will be impossible to undo, no matter how much of a disaster it is. Based on the experience across the pond, this may be exactly right. As the Washington Examiner´s Philip Klein detailed in an

A CORONER has criticised poor communication between hospital staff and patients during an inquest into the death of a Barrow woman. Doreen Jesson, 67, of Sutherland Street, was referred to Furness General Hospital in August last year suffering from nausea and weight loss. After being diagnosed with an infection and cirrhosis of the liver, her health deteriorated and she was transferred to Abbey View to receive end of life care. She died of pneumonia on September 19, 2012. But South and East Cumbria coroner, Mr Ian Smith, said doctors should have listened more closely to the patient and her family

Why Opponents Won’t

Many Democrats are genuinely puzzled about Republicans’ continuing opposition to Obamacare. It is the law of the land, these Democrats say. Critics should accept it, as critics accepted Medicare. They should work constructively and across the aisle with Democrats to repair any flaws and make the law work to help people. Historical analogies are often useful, but they can be misleading. The Medicare analogy is certainly misleading: Republicans, like it or not, are behaving differently from the way they behaved after the passage of Medicare in 1965.

The Muslim parents assert that the flyers – emblazoned with the word “Eggstravaganza!” – violate the separation of church and state widely ascribed to the First Amendment’s Establishment Clause, reports the Detroit Free Press. Students at three Dearborn elementary schools received the flyers. A large number of Muslim students attend the schools.

Kathryn Riffenburg decided on a closed casket for her baby´s funeral. She didn´t want her family to see what whooping cough, her son´s first illness, had done to 9-week-old Brady Alcaide. The nearly forgotten disease, which has in recent years afflicted thousands of Americans, left Brady´s tiny body swollen and unrecognizable. So his mother dressed him in a white baptismal suit and hat and tucked him into a tiny white casket. Brady´s burial came just four weeks after his first laugh — inspired by her version of I´m a Little Teapot — and two weeks after his family learned that he had

Former GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney has sworn off running again for elected office, but Americans have certainly heard that one before. Speculation that Romney might run again has largely been stoked by the reunion he planned to host last month in Park City, Utah, for members of his 2012 campaign and debate team and a string of recent public appearances. He has appeared on TV news shows 12 times in the past six months. That’s essentially on pace with Michigan GOP Rep.

WASHINGTON- Seven million people signed up, so there is an appetite for President Barack Obama´s health care law, but that doesn´t guarantee success for the country´s newest social program. Big challenges are lurking for the next enrollment season, which starts Nov. 15. Chief among them are keeping premiums and other consumer costs in check, and overhauling an enrollment process that was advertised as customer-friendly but turned out to be an ordeal.

The president gave two speeches this week, one in the Rose Garden to talk about Obamacare and one in Ann Arbor, Mich., to push minimum wage increases. What did we learn? We learned that President Obama is most comfortable in campaign mode, and his campaigning has gotten downright ugly. His Rose Garden speech was a typical self-congratulatory moment for supposedly hitting 7.1 million Obamacare sign-ups — although we know that once again, the White House is ignoring some inconvenient truths. We also learned that the president was vain enough to asked the networks to cover his speech in prime time, but

Democrats are facing a senior problem that could get even worse this year. The party has traditionally had trouble with older voters, losing the group aged 65 and over by 21 points in 2010 — when Republicans picked up 63 seats — and by 12 points in the 2012 presidential race. Seniors are the GOP’s most reliable voting bloc in midterm years, turning out in higher numbers than Democratic base voters. A recent Gallup poll showed seniors have become even more Republican over the last two decades; in 2013, 48 percent considered themselves Republican. That spells trouble for Democrats, who are already facing
