    Just like a good Nazi, Obama isn't worried about the workers, just an agenda of national socialism. He calls it "Redistribution of wealth, by textbook definition it is just propoganda for the crime of stealing. Just like a good Nazi Obama doesn't let any crisis go to waste and if there isn't a crisis to exploit he creates one, as he did with sequestration and all this debt. Just like a good Nazi Obama creates a false image of the true enemy, as he wants to be friends with muslim terrorists, blaming an internet video for Benghazi and starts yapping about cyberwar.

      I figured out " Hope and change " means he hopes he can empty all the change from your pockets during his first two years in office. IDIOTS voted him back in office for a second term.

      Ans, as always, Hamsta still doesn't know what a) what Nazism is, and why b) term limits would prevent the United States from becoming a Nazi State. This has been repeatedly pointed out, but as a fan of Alex Jones, it will be ignored.

      "...starts yapping about cyberwar."
      Apparently somebody missed that China has been hacking into the computers of hundreds of American corporations.
      Hmmm...I wonder how long it will be before China hacks into our infrastructure being run by computers? Oh, right. It's just Obama "yapping."

      The name of the song is "American Idiot". Billie Joe Armstrong write this song, heavily criticizing the state of America circa 2004, when Bush was President. He was railing against the "biased media". One more thing: BJA is a liberal. Helpful to know the history of the song one is attempting to use to insult others with.

    Today is day 1,000 for Bradley Manning in jail with no trial. There are almost 40 events planned across the country with tens of thousands that will be on the street. CNN don't you think that's something that We the People might like to hear about? No coverage? Not a peep?
    Mainstream media is a FARCE. Now back to Rubio taking a drink of water............
