Excuse Jerry?! I'm not in position to see from President Obama's point of view. Are you?

What's of interest to me are people like you, who're privileged & are quick to "First Amendment" vent their frustrations...without really knowing what it's like to walk daily in the shoes of the most powerful man on the planet. You'd do well to stop barking & get behind the President "Jerry" even though all you can presently see is snow & hiney.

The answer to the question Ms. Donna is to PRAY. President Obama is leading only because God is holding & guiding the reins.

Trav, there is very little you say that offends me. I just accept you for who you are and realize you can't do any better.

You're so sweet bobby. I can't do any better than GOD and Truth. Nothing is as sweet as truth. We shouldn't be yoked together and we know truth of it.
Isaiah 5:20
Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil, that put darkness for light, light for darkness, that put bitter for sweet, sweet for bitter!
Psalm 74:4
Thine enemies roar in the midst of thy congregations, they set up their ensigns for signs.
---Trav on 4/4/11

As a country, I believe the Unites States is between "Iraq" and a hard place.

We see peoples all over the world who want a "voice" in their own government. They riot in the streets and start rebellions...most of which they are ill-equipped to carry out. Americans identify strongly, because that's our history, too. And we have military might to help.

But we have given so much to so many for so long,... we can't give any more. Now, people call on us to police the world... but we cannot.We are struggling for economic viability ourselves and still have people depending on us in 2 wars besides. It doesn't matter WHO IS TO BLAME, the question is, what do we do now? SOLOMON, where are you?

//The U.S. can't stand idly by while this bully (strong man, tribal warlord, dictator) blatantly murders his own people. UN intervention in Libya is vitally necessary to aid in delivering the Libyan people from the clutches of their beastly oppressor.

OK, so what's your excuse for Obama ignoring the pleas for help from the Iranian masses as they were gunned down by their barbaric dictator?
---jerry6593 on 4/3/11

Trav, there is very little you say that offends me. I just accept you for who you are and realize you can't do any better.

Donna, while the house can always try to impeach Obama, Im not sure he has committed an impeachable offense. I believe the claim is he violated the War Powers Resolution of '73.

While only congress can declare a war, until that time presidents, as CINC could drop a few bombs here and there. The War Powers Resolution says the President could do that only by authorization of Congress.

There are many who question the constitutionality of the WPR, including a legal challenge that the WPR constitutes an improper legislative veto. It has never been challenged in the courts.
---NurseRobert on 4/2/11

Strong Axe-- But his grounds for demanding impeachment were quite different.

I'm not sure his reasoning with pres. Bush. But with Pres. Obama it is because he failed to obtain permission of Congress for our actions in Libya, as is required by the Constitution.

Bush did not venture into Iraq without Congressional permission.

If Kucinich he is anti-war, then he he being true to his convictions.

No need to apologize John, my feeling are a lot tougher than that.
---NurseRobert on 3/25/11

No problem Donna66.

It was a loose story. There was not many facts behind it.

Which is why they wanted impeachment procedures so they could sub-pena the information and find out exactly what happened behind the scene.

Nurse my apologies for hurting your feelings. I never want to be a party to that.
---John on 3/25/11


Dennis Kucinich seems to be someone who is going by principles, rather than partisan politics. He recently called for impeachment of Obama over the Libya attacks (although he appears to have backed down over this). But three years ago, he had also called for impeachment of George W. Bush over the Iraq war as well.
---StrongAxe on 3/25/11

---John on 3/25/11

See, John, THIS is exactly what I was saying. You seem to have an innate need to insult. Why do you feel the need to do that?

As far as me posting on the spiritual blogs, I do when I feel I have something to add. Ive actually started a couple, only to see them degenerate into an arguement as to whose view is the correct one. Lately, it seems, most of the blogs have become very contentious and argumentative.

Mostly I like to read and try to learn from what others who post here. I have learned a lot from people like Donna66, Alan of UK, Elder (though we REALLY see things differently) and, once in a while, even you.
---NurseRobert on 3/25/11

John-- My apologies for calling the "impeachment" story a rumor. I now hear that Rep.(D)Dennis Kucinich was calling for impeachment of Obama. But I don't expect anything to come of it.

In my opinion, there was nothing wrong with the idea of a "no fly zone" in the first place. If we had gone ahead with that instead of waiting for the balking, bloviating UN, we could gone in, sent missiles, been out and gone by now.

BUT now it's too little to late. We let it evolve into a civil war,(in which we dare not involve ouselves) gave time for the Muslim Brotherhood and other extremists to join the battle. And in the process made our country look weak and indecisive.
---Donna66 on 3/25/11

We should not be in Libya anymore than we should have been in Iraq. It was a terrible decision.
---NurseRobert on 3/25/11

I agree that the USA's Presidents have made some poor decisions and gotten the country into wars:

Korea, Vietnam, Iraq, Libya, others ???

In many of these conflicts, the USA -- the world's BIGGEST military arms supplier -- provided a lot of the weapons.

I hope that I don't sound "Negative" about the USA. I just find it difficult to believe that both Christian, and non-Christian, Presidents don't seem to be able to see all the WRONG in being involved in these questionable wars.

The UN is even MORE questionable.

---Sag on 3/25/11

The point is Donna, it did pass. And more people supported it than did not support it.

Now back to the original question.. It's disappointing that Obama whent the route he did. We should not be in Libya anymore than we should have been in Iraq. It was a terrible decision.
---NurseRobert on 3/25/11

Gee John... Another stretch of your perceived truth? Which one of those did I call you?

You call yourself a Christian and then post lies and innuendos. How do you justify that to yourself and to God? Every time I see one of your posts I think of Romans 1:22.

Bash away, John, you're like the batter who swings for the fence and misses every time at bat. It matters little to me that you and I don't see eye to eye on political matters. Hopefully one day you will "put aside childish things" and learn to speak like an adult.
---NurseRobert on 3/24/11

StrongAxe. Honestly, I do not take politics to heart. This in NOT my world and my heart and concerns are with the Kingdom.

Please do take this as those cop-outs "Holier than thou" comments you see when someone can't answer a post question. I can't stand that myself!

Just wanted to give you a litte info about me. You likely are the same on that one.

And Yes... We should get involved with out Nation and world. We're not Monks!

But we are just passing through.


Its fun bashing Nurse/Obewan. You always know when you win an arguement with a Liberal when they have to resort to their "Label Bag" (Hate, Racist, Xenophobe, Homophobe, Sexist). For me they need to use superglue to stick.

Jesus had that convenient power of being able to conjure something out of nothing (i.e. he fed the 5000 from just a handful of loaves and fishes). It would have been a very different matter if he and his disciples would have had to actually go into town and buy every individual loaf and fish. Modern hospitals, unfortunately, don't have that power. They have to pay for equipment, medicine, salaries, etc. none of which grow on trees. SOMEBODY has to pay for it all.

Also remember that at times, the crowds got so overwhelming that even Jesus ran away from them and hid, so he wouldn't have to deal with their constant demands.
---StrongAxe on 3/24/11

Strongaxe and Nurse Robert-- The Healthcare bill barely passed. It was like pulling teeth. It passed the House by 1 vote. In the Senate, Democrats lost their 60th vote. They had to resort a parliamentary maneuver that allowed the Democrats to pass it with a simple majority.

If the pro vs. con stats are about the same margin by which that the bill passed, that margin is very SLIM.
(Not very popular with the people)
---Donna66 on 3/24/11

Because of politics Donna. Im sure you were following the bill and it went though both houses of congress. You know how rancorous the fight was.

And since when have politicians ever listened to what the public want.

And if you read my post you will remember I said a majority of Americans supported health care. If you look up the stats it was about the same margin that the bill passed.
---NurseRobert on 3/24/11

If it "squeaked by in Congress", that means it still passed. Which means that MORE than half of the house and MORE than half of the senate voted for it. If the American People didn't want it, why did they elect representatives that they knew were planning to vote for it?
---StrongAxe on 3/24/11

Be realistic. Many who run for President always say that whoever was in office should not have done what they did, as they did with Bush. That is the basis for running against someone. But what they say, and what they do, depends a lot of times on what Treaties we have with other nations. There is many things a president does not know before they get in office. Once in, they find out many things they oppose to before, that were been done for a reason. Once in, their attitude changes. Things we ourselves don't even know. Things that are secret to the most of us. From our standpoint, we see with blind eyes. We have opinions, but we know very little about the reasons for our actions against another country. Every country acts on their own behave.
---Mark_V. on 3/24/11

Nurse Robert -- If Obamacare was so popular with the American people, why did it just squeak by in Congress?
(esp. since the majority in both House and Senate were of Obama's own political party)
---Donna66 on 3/23/11


Perhaps you aren't aware that the U.S.A. is NOT a democracy. People almost never vote for laws. Cities and states may have referendums, but the federal government does not.

The U.S.A. is a democratic republic. People vote for representatives who, in turn, vote for laws.

You get to pick whoever you want for office. Once elected, they can do whatever they want, whether you appprove or not, until the next election. If you don't like a law they pass, there is nothing you can do.

Also, NurseRobert and I aren't "spinning" anything - just quoting facts. You, however are the one using lots of hyperbole, capital letters, "CASE CLOSED", etc. - none of which are necessary in a civilized discussion.

Axe, once again John proved my point about his "facts" by claiming 83% did not support the health care law when it passed. Even a cursory glance showed a majority of Americans APPROVED of the health care law when it was passed. Even at the lowest point only 52% (nowhere near 83%) were people against it.

John is either clueless or purposely lying in his posts.
---NurseRobert on 3/23/11

Axe, our friend John. Ive been following his posts for awhile. Nearly all of what he posts about Obama are either innuendos, manipulations or outright lies

I'm a bit unclear about who you were referring to. Is Obama making things up as he goes along, or is John?

How was the Healthcare bill passed with 84% of Americans against it.
DO you remember how they passed it. Were you watching the news then? Or were you still Awestruck at your messiahs image on TV?

Sorry, but I'm not interested in yours or Nursies spin either.

Looking beyond the present disturbance across the Middle East consider this scenario. Many Bible scholars believe that the Anti-christ will be part Jewish and from Syria.

Good grief, Allen, did you ever consider, even once, the number of lives that would have been lost if we HADN'T intervened? You think the casualties you mentioned were ALL caused by the United States? The Korean War was also fought by Koreans, The Vietnam conflict by, Vietnamese...both of which asked us to assist! Your figures on Iraq come from Al Jazeera and are wildly inflated. Sadaam had already killed a couple million and performed unspeakable acts torture upon even more! (i.e. cutting out tongues and raping women before their children and husbands). Do you think all of that would have STOPPED if we didn't intervene? Iraq has been liberated to form their own government. Saddam got what he deserved. Nobody knows what will happen in Libya.

I said: A dictator rules with absolute authority.

You said: HMMMM??? Yep you're right! Sounds like Obama!

Oh? And how do you get that? For laws (including things like the Stimulus package), he has to go through Congress and pass laws THEY make. HE has no power to make laws himself. All he can do is propose laws to them, and pass them once they reach his desk.

As for foreign policy - yes, he is Commander in Chief, so he is GIVEN (by the constitution) the authority to wage war. NOT to declare it - for that, he needs approval of congress.

So, please tell me just WHAT dictatorial powers Obama has? And not hyperbole and rhetoric - actual facts please.
---StrongAxe on 3/23/11

Allan, I am not saying the U.S. has the right to bomb sovereign countries that are not currently threatening the U.S. (i.e. the Bush doctrine).
However what I said stands.
1. there is an appetite for freedom across North Africa.
2. Qaddafi is a terrorist with American blood on his hands and is the largest threat to instability in North Africa.
4. The Arab Leagues tepid support was primarily an attempt to rebuff a refugree crisis, which again destabilizes the region.

Should we help?
What are the cost?
What is the future cost of doing nothing?

I do not have the answer but its folly to believe there is no downside to the world and U.S. of 40 more years of the Qaddafi clan.

John, follow the command in Timothy to pray for the president. I am not happy with President Obama but we have a major investment in the heart of a leader turned toward the Lord and it will only be accomplished with prayer. There is no hope beyond the prayers of the faithful so get busy. .
Have you ever considered for a moment the alternative in 2012 could be Romney?
That would leave you with an unacceptable alternative as Mormonism is as every bit as Satanic as Islam because it denies Jesus of his true identity.
I am not judging President Obama who claims he's a christian, but that alone is not reason to vote for a candidate any more than the errant belief that every believing church member should be pastor.

A dictator rules with absolute authority. The President's authority is limited by the constitution. A dictator is not responsible to anyone. Obama was elected by electors chosen by the people, and can get just as easily un-elected next year if those same people don't like him.

The money does not belong to "The American People". It belongs to the federal government, which has constitutional authority to tax The American People to get it. That money can be spent by the government however it sees fit, subject to budgetary allotments made by Congress.

People here don't worship Obama. They just recognize him as having legitimate authority, and as such, to be respected (Romans 13:1), or have you forgotten that one?

Korea about 3 million killed
Vietnam 4.5 million killed
Iraq 1991 several ten of thousands killed

Take a look at the record of all the Presidents of USA for the last 100 hundred years and each one of them, with the possible exception of Jimmy Carter, has used deadly, military force against sovereign nations, in the deceitful name of freedom. What about America and Americans that make them deal only in destruction and death? In the last ten years alone, the Americans have killed nearly two million people, made refugees of six million more and destroyed two countries. Not even the Sudanese government, in its many years of atrocities has achieved such bloody distinction. The USA, France and Britton have launched the war against Lybians. And they are in the process of doing what Americans do best: kill and destroy.

It just came in over the wires.

Apparently Obama abdicated his authority to Hillary Clinton and in fact she started the war action on behalf of the U.S. NOT the supposed Commander and Chief. It was reported Obama was afraid to give the order and thus the delay. Then the French started it since the window of opportunity was closing and Obama was not able to give the command, so Obama finally gave the authority to Hillary Clinton and she started the War for the U.S. (3-days later)

In my High School history class, we learned about the "Military-Industrial Complex" or MIC. A term from former USA President Dwight D. Eisenhower. His nickname was: IKE.

It seems like the USA is caught up in the MIC that IKE warned us about.

We may say we are promoting peace when in fact we are quelling violence. Violence will answer to violence and America's position in the world requires us to use violence. Remember also that these people are of the people which the Bible says every man's hand will be against him.(Paraphrased)

Defending people being murdered by their leader is a useless war?

Where is the compassion of Christ in you?

Thats typical of our society now. "I dont care what happens as long as it doesnt affect ME."

Cluny -- I believe we would deserve chastisement if we failed to intervene on behalf of people who are begging us to help them...who are outnumbered and outgunned...who are seeking to overthrow a dictator who has turned against them.

It is a small feat for us to provide them aid in the form of missiles. Little danger to us. Thankfully, we are not even having to oppose him singled-handed. Gadhafi is toast.

Moderator - Don't call weapons, peace missles nothing peace about them.

To do a no-fly zone. the military must take out some command and control, and some anti-air weapons so our guys will not be shot down. Its a war, in a war there is no excessive force. As for Qaddafi, he is a tyrant and tyrants want to stay in power and aircraft are his weapon of choose to kill dissenters. In America our leaders answer to the public, to a dictator he answers to no one.

I am disgusted! Obama is turning out to be Bush Junior! There is nothing "peace" about these peace missiles, all it's doing is getting us into war with YET ANOTHER mid-east country with no clear way out!

I have been greatly saddened by this.

Maybe this is how a nation is chastised by God--by being allowed to get involved in useless wars.
