  1. The Monster's Lawyer says:

    Obamaham Lincoln

  2. Dallas says:

    In the future, two term President Obama will also be remembered as one of the greatest of all presidents of the United States of America.

    • pedro says:

      In present day, you are regarded as the biggest moron in this blog

      • Dallas says:

        I actually provide opinionated but informative, factual responses to many issues raised here.

        You on the other hand, are a useless pile of shit.

        • pedro says:

          Aaaaaaaahahahahahaha. Here I was posting about you boasting your self importance to others and here you are doing it again.

          What a hopeless idiot you are.

  3. bobbo, one true Liberal recognizing Obama is too far Right says:

    Abraham Obama…more regal.

    • pedro says:

      Yes, gives him the name of someone that has actually done something.

      Makes you think like Obama has done something too which he hasn’t

  4. endofplanetoftheapesremake says:

    What you racists. No ape lincoln jokes????

  5. Uncle Patso says:

    I hope you’re right, Dallas, but so far I don’t see it. So far he has been more effective as president than Carter (who has been much more effective as an _ex_president than he was in office), but less so than Clinton.

    We’ll see what the second term (and the mid-term elections) bring.

  6. bobbo, one Real Liberal making Obama a Moderate Conservative by comparison says:

    I also find myself often thinking Obama has not been very effective in office and I can list what he hasn’t done.

    Then, we have all seen the lists of what he has done.

    And with all his failures and spineless lack of confronting the TeaPublicans…. still…. he did address THE BIGGEST structural challenge the USA was facing and is still facing: the double the inflation rate of healthcare spending. something no one else after Johnson was able to do. Lots more to do of course. Slippery slope or cracking the egg… the omelet is not finished yet but hopefully on its way.

    Lack of financial reform/enforcement/continuing placement of Wall Street Toadies in government revolving door does more than negate that effort.

    Still room for hope and change.

  7. Glenn E. says:

    Referencing the “Matrix”, I’d say No Agenda is the “Red Pill” of podcasts. Making its hosts, Neo Curry and Morpheus Dvorak. I guess. But I wouldn’t go so far as to call DU, a promised land. :)

    Does this make Ms Micky that Trinity chick?

  8. Glenn E. says:

    Slavery, in the US, represented free or extremely cheap labor. So any move to end slavery, threatened the South, economically. And mostly the wealthy plantation owners. Because very few poorer southerners owned any slaves. And the northern wealthy mainly objected to the “unfair” economic advantage, the South had to produce cheap goods. The South was basically a kind of China, in America, as far as goods they produced.

    And every time a new State was officially minted, above the Mason-Dixon line, it threatened the voting power of the South, in Congress, to keep slavery alive. So at some point, the South just had enough, or saw the vote about to go against them. So they declared Separation. And the Civil war was really about this act of separation. Caused by the economic value of maintaining slavery, for the southern rich.

    As opposed to the textile production of the northern rich. Who just happen to not benefit quite so much from the institution of slavery. Basically because black slaves were better suited to the southern climate. Their agriculture, and unskilled labor.

    So the South wanted to be a Chinar, and Lincoln said no. And the war prevented a split nation. Kind of like has happened to Korea.

  9. Glenn E. says:

    Come get your bullet insurance? The more ammo you buy, the more insurance you’ll need. Because while one gun might be used to take a life. But not if it never has any ammo in it. AKA trophy pieces and antiques. Bullets that aren’t used for target practice and game hunting. Are the real potential human life takers. And those that stockpile enough ammo to equal the Civil War. Are likely the ones who will cause the carnage. Rather than the millions of gun owners, only interested in self-protection, as a last resort.

    As for the street rabble with guns. Well they’ve always been with us, and will use knives when they don’t have guns. And rocks when they don’t have knives. So insurance is never going to stop them, doing what they want. It just penalizes the rest of us, who are law abiding. And just who gets the insurance pay off? The gun violence victims? The States, for their policing expense? The Feds for their expenses, other than merely existing, which the taxpayers already cover?

    Since when has Health Insurance, which this technically is, been tied to the thing that endangers it? We don’t see tobacco sales, surcharged for all the cancer it causes. Or alcohol, for all the liver disease it causes. And car insurance, is accident insurance. Because generally, people don’t use cars to kill other people, on purpose or in self-defense. So are gun vigilantes, street gangs, and drug dealers, only accidentally taking lives? So I guess the death penalty no longer applies, if that’s the case. Because very rarely does anyone ever face a death penalty for running down people with their car. Just ask any poor person living in Florida. The elder rich there, can run down people, and get away with it. Their insurance premiums just go up.

    You can bet Dick Cheney won’t be paying any damn gun insurance. No matter how many lawyers he shoots in the face.

  10. Glenn E. says:

    It wouldn’t surprise me that the US waterboards some of its military personnel. When I was in the Air Force. We were exposed to tear gas, in a room, in order to train us about gas mask use. At least, that was their excuse for doing it. But we only got the training once, in the whole time any of us were in the service. And being an electronic tech, who mostly worked in an air conditioned building. I never had any occasion to face the danger of a gas attack.

    I don’t even know that we had any gas masks where I worked. They would have to be delivered by truck. I never saw any room, stockpiled with them, in our building. And after years of never refreshing our training. I seriously doubt most of us would remember exactly the fastest way of putting one on correctly. And nerve gas would probably kill us the split second we smelled it, anyway. So this was mostly gas mask theater.

    Not to mention that the Security Police got some fun seeing us all reduced to tears by the gas exposure. Because they were the one’s running the “training”. Much more likely, this was police state intimidation. Showing us what being tear gassed would feel like. So behave you slaves.

    And so I suspect waterboarding our troops, is also more about some other purpose. Rather than any preparation for being captured by the enemy. Just as nuclear blast exposure of troops, during the 50s, wasn’t about preparing the troops to fight in a nuked wasteland. It was something else. Militaristic sadism perhaps. Generals playing god. Or just plain curious as to how far they could go, putting humans thru all this crap, they’d never put themselves or their loved one to? And still get away with it.

    Again, sadism. Got the troops, and the free time (no world war) , why not gas them, waterboard them, and par-nuke them? Maybe it’s propaganda for the enemy. “See what we’ll do to our own soldiers, for fun. Think what we’ll do to yours, we capture.” Intimidating the enemy, by example torturing our own.

  11. Uncle Patso says:

    Glenn E. said, in part:

    “… We don’t see tobacco sales, surcharged for all the cancer it causes. Or alcohol, for all the liver disease it causes. …”

    Actually, both these things are taxed like crazy — more than half the retail cost is taxes. I remember once at the local bowling alley my father gave me a quarter to get him a pack of smokes from the machine and inside the cellophane wrapper on the pack were two shiny new pennies in change. Now they are more than five dollars, almost eight in some states. Some of that difference is inflation, but a lot of it is increased taxes. Alcohol is taxed similarly.

    Guess my OCD is showing a little bit. Sorry.

    • pedro says:

      Sorry why? You were spot on.

    • pedro says:

      If only, albeit a bit off topic, you forgot to add that the gas is also taxed in about the same way, adding to its price increase.

  12. deowll says:

    I never met Lincoln. I have read his word and I have read BOs words and watched him on video. BO is nothing like Lincoln. This is an insult to Lincoln.

  13. mojo says:

    Wait, wait…

    Ok, John – you’re a “Cranky Geek”, but you’ve never heard of a salted hash for storing a password? How is that possible?

    Never mind, doesn’t matter (as Hildabeest would say)
