and last year bozo the clown gave them two billion of our money for their oil.
Oh that’s right the MSM never mentioned that, Soros Petrobas, two bil of tax payers money , shares and Soros making a lot of money from that deal , now correct me if I am wrong but the MSM never mention any of this but wasn;t that the same time he obama decided on going to war with Libya ?
Two billion was only a down payment.
You know damn well that the Constitution does not allow the President a blank check.
makes me sick to the stomach that this idiot goes down there, takes the family on our dime, has a party and vacation, takes our money again to give to Petrobas, starts an illegal war, ignores the constitution and then we had idiots in the GOP backing him.
How Soros must have been laughing over that and to think the GOP still does not call the MSM out on anything this idiot does because they think the MSM might call them a name.
I live in fear that he will be re-elected. God help us.
DECADENCE is a bitch!
the way he has been and his admin over these last 3 years knowing they need to be re-elected is a good indication in how they will really be if they get a 2nd term.
It would be awful and so dangerous that I think the harm they would do would never be overturned again.
Fighting WWII was decadent?
The Normandy Invasion was America's finest hour.
The point is that Great Britain ruled the world, succumbed to decadence, and is now on the fast track to becoming a Third World Country. When the British accepted their decline, they damned themselves and their children to misery.
America can profit from Britain's example, and Americans would if millions of them were not too stupid.
Yes. Decadence is a bitch.
No. Fighting World War II was not decadence. Losing the present culture war is.
