Trav, your claiming the president who, by the way is not black but considered so and who is errantly thought to be Muslim adheres to "Black Liberation Theology" which is based on a belief that liberation from social, economic, political and religious oppression is found in a homeless Palestinian Jew JESUS CHRIST?



I disagree with the president on a number of issues, but dude please. Start making sense.

Oh, and hes not Kenyan.. How can you be so wrong so often?
---NurseRobert on 5/27/10

Well at minimum these "Bona Fide" Presidents served their country. They were legit citizens of this country. The did not worship/join Anti-Christ churches for 22 years.
Veterans would not want a socialist poser error to desecrate what they died to preserve anyway...the republic for which they stood....if they could be asked.
Poser never honored our flag or country. He honors his own,(pause for spit) symbol.

Not Kenyan? His kenyan family thinks he is. He visited them, the kenyan president who stated they were putting up memorials at the hospital he was born in. Huhhh?

---Trish9863 on 6/1/10


Yes Cluny and Obewan here we go again. Do people pull this stuff out of the ether?
Christians of all should not be so cavalier with truth.
REBECCA D just repeated the lie claiming fines for not having health care. I'm sure her error wasn't out of avarice but good grief, if we can't identify the truth in something as carnal as politics how can we defend our faith separating truth from error?

For the record and from the bill...

"Non-compliance with the personal responsibility requirement to have health coverage is not subject to criminal or civil penalties under the Code and interest does not accrue for failure to pay such assessments in a timely manner."

Did Obama say WHY he refused to attend the Arlington Memorial Services? I saw Joe Biden was there....doesn't he count?

If I cared about everything the President did or didn't do, I'd have ulcers. I am praying for him that God would give him wisdom to know to do the right thing, to call America to pray according to Second Chronicles Seven Fourteen. "If my people, who are called by my name, humble themselves and pray, and seek my face, THEN I will hear from heaven, forgive their sin and heal their land."

Oh, I don't doubt that one bit.
---Cluny on 6/1/10


I have a question for John and others.

If, as you insist, Obama is not a natural-born citizen of the USA and therefore is not legally president, what difference does it make if he does not attend Memorial Day ceremonies at Arlington to lay a wreath at the tomb of the Unknown Soldiers, which you claim is a presidential duty?
---Cluny on 6/1/10

I don't like the fact that Obama says that everyone has to have insurance or they will be fines. It is great if the person/family can afford Insurance, but fine them if they don't have it. We have great insurance but that and taxes tears us up. My brother-n-law can't afford insurance on his family. His job doesn't cover the whole family unless he pays around $300 a paycheck ( every 2 weeks). I don't know why Obama passed this, it is good that jobs have to carry insurance on their employees but it doesn't do any go if they can't afford it.
---Rebecca_D on 6/1/10


President Obama attended a ceremony at Abraham Lincoln Veterans Cemetery in Illinois today and veterans there were thankful for his appearance. He didn't refuse anything and in fact attended services at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in May of 2009.


Ronald Reagan and daddy Bush also skipped the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. Reagan for a meeting with Industrial leaders and Bush for a vacation in Maine.

Bush, who has a stellar military record, attended a small ceremony in Kennebunkport that morning before a round of golf.

Good grief Mary, who fed you such garbage and what would you say next year if he decides to commemorate the day in Afghanistan or Fort Hood with troops and veterans instead of Washington D.C.?
---larry on 5/31/10


I don't hate Obama. I fear him.
His green Czar..( Van Jones) avowed communist and racist calls 9-11 an inside job.

Obama won't honor the dead on 9-11. Proclaims it interfaith day and honors Islam,in which name the terrorists bombed.

He knew of and allowed the release of the Lockerbie bomber. Who is now a living hero

Muscling in on the banking, finance and auto industry is not presidential but un-Constitutional.

Nuclear Weapons: Obama decides Iran can have them and America cannot.
Iran is encouraged to use nuclear power for "peaceful purposes", but we are not to build nuclear power plants.
.
He sends troops to Afghanistan, but broadcasts to citizens and enemy alike when they will leave.

---obewan on 5/31/10

A poll. What a fine non biased way to know something. We should quit voting and use the poll numbers.

You guys stand proud to support and defend, a pervert supporting, abortion supporter. Show your Black Liberation Theology support. Stand up and testify. Come out of that closet, for this follower of the teachings of James Cone apostles of "Black Liberation Theology"....for over 20 YEARS.

Other here suggest that Reagan and both Bushes failed to do that

Please show us your proof!

For most Americans its a given fact now.

Most American don't even think he is even an American!
---John on 5/31/10

John how can you be so wrong so often.

Of the polls I found after a short search on the internet, the numbers who believe he was not born in this country run from 14-20%. That is no where near "most Americans". Are you still making this up as you go along? Or maybe you just polled the birthers (of course, it would be 100% then wouldn't it.)

I also found it interesting that 1/3 of all birthers polled actually think Obama was doing a good job.

I love how you speak for "most Americans."

Care to refute with actual facts?

Ok, great and not so powerful wayne of OZ.. Explain to us how he wants to control the masses. Just WHAT has he done to accomplish this??

Also, Bush II appointed 47 people to different positons and had 35 Czars, more than the 32 you claim for Obama.

And who cares how many pictures he has of himself in the White house. Do you honestly think other presidents didn't to the same thing? I don't think you are that naive.

I don't see any "civilian task force" (its actually a "civilain national security force") Where is it? It was an idea that will not pan out..

I think your crystal ball needs new batteries.

John: Actually, it's not the moon, it's in Greece!

'For most Americans its a given fact now.

Have you interviewed more than 50% of Americans? About either of the two

The 'American' part is a myth, and I challenge you to provide some genuine evidence for that (many others have failed)

You give your evidence, if possible where you GOT the evidence, and it can be checked by everyone on this blog
---peter3594 on 5/31/10

Most people I meet thing Obama is too nationalistic

GIVE SOME EVIDENCE, PLEASE

John (in reponse to Peter): unless you are from the moon.......

John: NO: YOU like to think that, and you just take the particular pieces of news that support YOUR view

In any case involving truth, your way of thinking is a lie

You NEVER take your point of view and then go to the news to verify it - then you get a lie

You take ALL THE NEWS ITEMS, look at them, and consider what they mean

But you, John, hate Obama so much you cannot do that

Release your hate, John, look at truth

You seem to forget that Bush at his low point had a much lower approval rating than Obama. How soon we forget.
---obewan on 5/31/10


Yes I know what's going on in the mind of BHO. He wants to control the masses. Has any of you ever thought about why he wants a civilian task force as strong as the military? Or why he has appointed 32 czars? Why he has close to 300 pictures of himself in the white house? Why he said too much information is a bad thing for us? Why he said the rev J Wright words were just words and they didn't matter, and then later talking about the TEA party's words, saying words do matter? So which is it? Answer that Nursy.

Any comment?

PS I did not vote at all

John, I hate to pop your bubble, but I did not vote for Obama, and I have told you before so you know.

As God commanded, "Thou shalt not bear false witness".

I still think you are a troll.

John: the question is not being 'pro-Obama' - we all know that all are sinful. The question is being pro- one particular action of Obama (did Obama, in this case, act well, so-so, or badly).

that is the question

also, putting people either pro-Obama or Pro-America is a fake comparison.

To put that, you must first have shown (proven to others) that Obama is anti-American

Do you want to try to prove that?

Nurse roberts: 'Obviously wayne knows everything that goes on in the mind of Obama'

Thank you for that very good comment..... it is important

Most of the discussion is about exactly WHY Obama went to the Lincoln Cemetary instead of the Arlington - as Nurse Roberts tells us, we don't know, and it is better not to guess without knowing the reasons

It could be that Obama just wanted to spend more time in his home state, or it could be that the Arlington seemed to him to be too showy, a place where the president is just a VIP while at Lincoln he can act like a genuine person?

Once again, we just don't know

FACTS VS HATRED:

- VP Biden will lay the wreath at Arlington National Cemetery (ANC) this year.

- President Obama will "pay his respects" (lay a wreath) at the Abraham Lincoln National Cemetery (in Elwood, Ill.) on Memorial Day to thank & honor the memory of ALL American veterans whether buried at Arlington, any other national cemetery or elsewhere.

- The President hasn't refused to honor the memory of American veterans. That's untrue Mary. Nor is he required to lay a wreath at ANC as though it were a more sacred ground than any other national cemetery in the country.

John: Former President Geo. H.W. Bush left office without once having lain a wreath at ANC or elsewhere.

This country's prosperity does not depend on the gov. As Glen Beck said, "we must look to God".
---wayne on 5/30/10

You are all getting off track again. What other Presidents did while they were in office does not matter.

All that matters is do Veterans and other real Americans attending the service want Obama there making a mockery of the program or turning the nature of the program for partisan political purposes.

If we can't boot him out of office yet, we can sure boot him out of Arlington.

The best solution is found in Psalm 109:9 - 15

President Reagan was away from Arlington on Memorial Day on four occasions during his eight years in office: In 1981, he (who had been seriously wounded in an assassination attempt six weeks earlier) spent the Memorial Day weekend at his ranch in Santa Barbara, California, while Vice-President George H.W. Bush laid the wreath at Arlington. In 1983, he attended a summit meeting in Williamsburg, Virginia, while Deputy Defense Secretary Paul Thayer represented the administration at the wreath-laying ceremony. In 1987, he spent Memorial Day at the Camp David presidential retreat while Navy Secretary James Webb participated in the wreath-laying ceremony. And on Memorial Day 1988, he was out of the U.S., attending a summit meeting in Moscow

\\Obama is the 1st President in our history to do this!\\

*W*R*O*N*G* !!!

Can you read, JOHN (or are you also John [no caps])?

Reagan, Bush Sr, and Bush Jr--Republicans all--didn't go to Arlington to lay wreaths at different times, either.

In fact, Bush Sr did not do so at ANY time in office.

Furthermore, Memorial Day did not start until AFTER the Civil War, which means that no president from Washington through Lincoln (at least) observed it.

Finally, the custom of laying a wreath at the tomb of the Unknown Soldier was copied from Great Britain AFTER WW1. Therefore no president until AFTER Woodrow Wilson did this, either.

does YOUR Religion of Liberalism allow you to critize YOUR Messiah or is it Blasphemy to do so?

It would then be similar in one respect to OUR religion of Christainity. It would make both of you the Liberal equvalent to Peter and Paul as they both headed to Martydom to defend OUR Messiah.

President Barack Obama is free to attend whatsover he pleases, just as you yourself are free to attend whatsoever you please.

Knowing who he is and what he really represents It does not surprise me at all.

At least he is not there disgracing the Ceremony.

Washington Post..

Obama will not be attending Arlington National Cemetery ceremonies on Monday and will be in Chicago beginning on Thursday. The President will return on Monday to attend a PAUL MCCARTNEY CONCERT instead.
There will be no laying of the wreath by Obama, no meeting with the Gold star parents of military personnel who died in action, there will be no Obama!

Obama is the 1st President in our history to do this!

This is the biggest DISGRACE and travesty to all veterans and the people of the United States of America. This is just unbelievable.

This crosses the line!

Whether you are a Democrat or a Republican . This is an insult to ALL Americans!!! And our vets who died for our freedom and HIS!

He's not refusing to attend. He's going to be in a similar ceremony in Chicago.

But he's NOT the first president, even in our lifetime, not to be at Arlington on Memorial Day.

Ronald Reagan spoke at West Point one year, and went to his California ranch another year. George H.W. Bush, a war veteran, did not go at all. George W. Bush, who avoided combat service in Vietnam, did not attend in 2002.

What do you think of their actions, mary?
