and all you fools still think he is your 'funky brotha'. It's just painful to see.

I happen to be a 68-year-old white woman. I definitely do not see President Obama as my "funky brotha' ".

I'm also a lifelong moderate Republlcan, BTW, but I voted twice for Obama because, like so many other moderates, I was sick of the Bush-Cheney swagger-and-throw-your-weight-around-the-world attitude, the inattention that led to 9/11, the blatant lies ("Saddam's WMD", "mushroom cloud", "yellowcake from Africa", etc) that got us into Iraq, etc. I also care about other issues, such as conservation and environmental protection, human rights, equal opportunity, and other things that the GOP used to be good on but doesn't care about these days.

Maybe you should think harder before you judge others based on prejudices and cliches.

What difference does being elderly make here, besides that you really should know better with decades of life and voting behind you? Obama is bush without the 'swagger'. What was my prejudice or cliche? The NDAA, which makes it possible to just throw someone in a hole forever, hey who needs friggin' habeas corpus and all that  enlightement krap? Driving bombs into villages because someone said there might be someone on the main square who might be connected to something that might happen? Really?

What about ISIS btw. Does anyone seriously think they they are not backed/created by the western powers including USA? They almost make it obvious.

Well, gee, I guess being a retired white American woman might have something to do with the fact that when I look at Barack Obama I don't see my "funky brotha' ".

Get it now?

And BTW, nobody who knows me in person would call me "elderly." I can tote 20 pounds of camera, 500 mm lens, and tripod for quite a useful distance. If you don't believe me, visit my website and see the wildlife images I make.

Another bad use of language and prejudice on your part, Topol (or whatever your name really is).

Let's just say that if G.W: Bush can have "swagger", Obama could be your "funky brotha", ok?

but please... instead turning this into a physical-vanity rant, could you please tell me:

-what was my prejudice?
-what part of my post about Obama wasn't true?
-how do you relate to Obama doing the things I mentioned? Are those things that you shrug off as insignificant? Or maybe it's all just 'bad use of language' somehow? :)
-do you even know what habeas corpus is?

It just collapsed by itself, and of course everyone took the credit for it, from the afgan mujahedin to USA thru western europe. At the endgame, their idiotic quota system had things happening like cargo travelling back and forth on railways for thousands and thousands of miles for no reason whatsoever. Their economy was made up of almost pure inefficiency. We here in the soviet satellite countries made endless jokes about this, like how their best lathe machine and it's award winning operator can create a couple of tootpicks from a whole timber in just 10 seconds.

and i shake my head and say, "geeesh, why didn't i move to Russia ???" ;D

-do you even know what habeas corpus is?

Oh, my dear Topol, you really should have stopped while you were ahead!  :)

So yes, actually, I do know what habeas corpus is. Not only from my long, long, looooong life as an American citizen, fully aware of my legal rights as spelled out in the US Constitution, but also from my not-quite-as-looooong-but-quite-lengthy-nevertheless tenure as a college professor of Romance languages from which I am now happily retired and which did involve, in the process of earning my Ph.D., considerable study of Latin.

So yes, actually, I do know what habeas corpus means, both in the civic sense and in the Latin sense.

Just a bit more proof of your tendency to bring foolish prejudices and cliched thinking to your style of argument.

Let's note how the ex-college professor couldn't answer anything, just went on ranting.

Oh please fight on, ...
if politicians u support only fight the same way like u do here,
we will definitely not see a war, never mind WWIII

but someone in your country has a button he or she will push
and we will all go up in smoke together.

as Bruce said, "blind faith can get u killed".

so long as there is enough ppl with brains to question their politicians, we will all do fine.
it is the silent majority that will see the damnation of mankind.
much like in the other thread on Shuttestock.  meglamaniac thrives on silence of the lambs.

He never was ahead.  His attitudes are embarrassment to thinking Americans.  You make a lot of sense Martha.

Not World War III but definitely Cold War II!

The only reasonable way to stop Russia (again!) and Putin's ambition to be one step closer to the fulfillment of Peter I dream and legacy: transform the Black Sea in a Russian lake.

Well, to tell you the truth, some duels are worth fighting. Some questions are worth answering. And sometimes it's best just to let stuff go.

If you weren't negatively impressed by how the Bush Administration ignored its own internal experts' warning that "Bin Laden was determined to strike the US", singled out for retribution a man (Saddam Hussein) who had nothing whatsoever to do with 9/11, and then flat-out lied us into a war of choice that would ultimately

1. kill and maim many hundreds of thousands of people,

2. disrupt the previously stable balance between Iraq-Iran (and with it the entire Middle East),

3. come close to bankrupting the US with a trillion-$$$ war mostly conducted off the budget books, and

4. seriously damage our reputation in the world

it doesn't seem likely that you would be influenced by anything I might decide to say in response to your too-simplistic, based-on-bias, anti-Obama rant.

But please, Friend Topol, keep on keeping on with it. Just bear in mind that your persistence doesn't seem to be winning many hearts and minds here.
