And I believe in giving credit where it's due...I guess I was singling out something she had said in an earlier post about the Pres, and how I (note I said I LOL) perceived her to be including her dislike in a post/thread where she was basically questioning the aunt's status

Why hasn't our lovely Media, made mention of this, oh wait because it has to do with Obama, their Prince and shining Armor, who could never do no wrong. When it comes to him, there is never negative news of any kind shared with us wittle folks.
What is good for the goose, is definitely not good for the gander.

I absoutely agree with you, no one would get the free passes that Obama has, do i think it is fair, no, All Presidents should be treated the same, no different.

Obviously an imaginary news story. But can you imagine the firestorm of hate and vitriol that would spew forth over such a state of affairs. It would be so massive he would have had to step forward and support her. But even then, the damage would have been done and it would have been another nail in the coffin of his political legacy.

I say this as someone who never voted for Bush and consider him to be one of the worst presidents we have had. But Obama has gotten a free pass on this one from the media. It shows that there is one standard for Republicans, conservatives, and other Americans not of the "enlightened" elite, and another standard for the establishment "progressives" who see themselves as the natural philospher-king rulers of this country.


As with most Presidents, there were those things i liked about Bush, and things i did not agree with him on, with Obama, i cannot find a common ground at all, i dislike him, don't trust him, never have. However, thank you so much for seeing the truth, and being so blatently honest, i appreciate that very much. There is definitely a one sided standard, Dems get a free pass, but not the Repubs, is this fair hek no. Obama in my opinion only has gotten many free passes, time to take that bus pass back. If Obama were a Republician, GOSH HELP US IF HE WAS, he would not have gotten away with half of what he has now.

Because it's very obvious that she will never be deported.

A) You REALLY don't like the President

B) And you're apparently not crazy about his family members either, judging by the post I'm replying to...true, this issue does have a parallel with the illegal alien situation when you think about it, but I'm guessing here it may be more about your beef with the President than anything else

I read through this entire thread, every single response, at least twice, before forming this post...to these old eyes, Vicman did his level best to try and craft a logical, fair explanation of events...at one point, you even said you could agree to disagree with him...but now, here we go with this '**** this' and 'a**hole that', like your getting red in the face and cussing on a chat forum is gonna change anything...

She may be a parasite to you, but she's somebody's aunt, mother, sister, whatever...but wait, she's OBAMA'S aunt, mother, sister, whatever, and according to you, he's a jerk, so in your world, that makes her even MORE of a parasite/target...

Quiet as it's kept, I myself am AGAINST illegal immigration, and want it stopped...period...but I'm also aware enough to know that swelling up and yelling and calling names and such, isn't gonna do anything to solve the problem...it's gonna take local and state governments, local and state law enforcement, ICE, the Feds, the Border Patrol, the National Guard (if necessary), everyone working together to craft an immigration policy with TEETH, so that this problem can be dealt with IMMEDIATELY...

And for the record, I'm a US Army Veteran and American citizen...I'm not here to try and deny you your right to express yourself, which is one of the freedoms I served to protect...I'm just here because I disagreed with the TONE of your response, not your right to speak...
For what it's worth, no obscure forum on the internet is going to solve the problem of illegal immigration.

Forums are for venting and expressing opinions, among other things.

It doesn't bother me (or I wouldn't even post my opinions to begin with), but you'd think I attacked Vicman instead of BHO.


...it's gonna take local and state governments, local and state law enforcement, ICE, the Feds, the Border Patrol, the National Guard (if necessary), everyone working together to craft an immigration policy with TEETH, so that this problem can be dealt with IMMEDIATELY...

Very much agree here. If we had had an immigration policy with teeth years ago, we would not be in the mess we are now. But no president nor congress has ever really wanted to deal with the problem.

As much as I liked Ronald Reagan--his biggest mistakes were the 199* Amnesty and Iran-Contra, and he later admitted to that on both counts.

Bush was an outright illegal alien sympathizer, so I knew we were not going to get anything done there.

BHO is yet another illegal alien sympathizer, so I imagine we can expect another amnesty before long. That way, people like his aunt can stay indefinitely and on the tit of the US government. She's got lots of company.

Thank you for your service to our country.

Now, back to my regularly scheduled programming of foaming at the mouth.....

What he's telling you to do is focus your energies on cases where you could influence their outcomes - as in focus your energy on deportable people who will be deported. He also knew that Oyango won't be deported, hence the turning blue part.

What he's doing is being facetious.
