    Obama leaves UN a changed statesman

    Barack Obama left the annual United Nations meeting Thursday with his presidency reshaped by a new era of global turbulence and his worldview sharpened by global jihadism's "heart of darkness".

    Read the article here: http://news.yahoo.com/obama-leaves-u...223800763.html

    The world has changed a lot in the last year and the USA and it's allies all over this planet have a lot of threats to deal with in the Middle East and in Europe and Africa.

    The USA can't deal with all of those threats on its own, It will need the help of its allies.

    What do you think?

    We sell the combatants all the equipment, ammunition, and advise they care to afford. And let them duke it out.

    I spit at lots of people through my computer screen. Not only does it "teach them a lesson" but it keeps the screen clean and shiny.

    I think he needs to quit apologizing for the US.

    If he hasn't gotten the message by now, I'm it's a lost cause.
    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    We are in turmoil because of him. He has had almost 6 years to do just some of what he promised.

    His aid to Africa is well known. He banned racial profiling, preserved the 2A, gave pension benefits to same sex couples....

    Good idea. There is no conceivable way this could be bad policy.

    He did nothing to make the world a better place just like all the post war presidents. Why would we expect the federal government to make the world a better place. Wouldn't it be enough to make the U.S. a better place?
