I just don't understand why US is so concerned about what Russia is doing, condemming them yet we can go over to any country and do as we please seems like it. Stay out of it and deal with the problems we have in our own country.

I'm not real sure but from History it looks like Democrat run government start wars and Republican run government ends them. I don't know it just seems that way.

The USA is still acting like it's the wealthiest and most progressive country on the earth, it is no longer holding that title. Other Nations and people are not waiting for the USA to correct itself, those Nations and peoples are rumbling and tumbling governments all over the world. It's a New World Order!!

To the avid administration apologists, any charge brought against President Obama is laughable.

To those affected by some of the policies of the current administration, it's been no laughing matter.

Example: Sen. Harry Reid adds insult to injury when he calls people's stories about losing their insurance LIES. But who cares?

Personally, I don't care if any president goes to read books at schools with little children. Why should I care? Elected officials are all about photo ops.

I'm much more concerned about the administration's policies and how they affect me as they're implemented. This is OK, because many, many libs are still going on about policies passed and implemented under Pres. Bush.

So we can all continue our concern for the rest of the Obama presidency, plus carry on for at least another 5 years after it's done.

We have a precedent.

Was bush hiding amongst children the day his employees flew those planes into the World Trade Center and the Pentagon? Is that what President Obama did? I don't think so because 3000 people didn't die under his watch.

"When this honorable legislative body thinks of creating new laws, it should have in mind the Russian national interest first, observing that the Muslims Minorities Are Not Russians."

Nobody should miss this important point. There are other countries where sharia has been imposed...

3-5-14 For the first time in many generations, a dhimma (protection agreement) was signed between the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIS) – an Islamist branch of Al-Qaida – and leaders of Raqqa’s several thousand Christians. Members of ISIS gave the latter three options: accepting the agreement, converting to Islam, or risking death. According to the 12 clauses in the accord, the Christians will commit to pay a twice-yearly poll tax of “four gold dinars” – which at today’s rate, comes to about $500 per person – with the exception that members of the middle class will pay half this amount, and the poor will pay a quarter of it, on condition they do not conceal their true financial sit

>>> The Russian customs and traditions are not compatible with the lack of culture or the primitive ways of Sharia Law and Muslims. When this honorable legislative body thinks of creating new laws, it should have in mind the Russian national interest first, observing that the Muslims Minorities Are Not Russians. The politicians in the Duma gave Putin a five minute standing ovation. If you keep this to yourself, you are part of the problem! It is a sad day when a Communist makes more sense than our own president, but here it is!!!!

My Grandfather was born in Ukraine so what could be the problem..lol!!

On August 04, 2013, Vladimir Putin, the Russian president, addressed the Duma, (Russian Parliament), and gave a speech about the tensions with minorities in Russia : "In Russia , live like Russians. Any minority, from anywhere, if it wants to live in Russia , to work and eat in Russia , should speak Russian, and should respect the Russian laws. If they prefer Sharia Law, and live the life of Muslim's then we advise them to go to those places where that's the state law. Russia does not need Muslim minorities. Minorities need Russia , and we will not grant them special privileges, or try to change our laws to fit their desires, no matter how loud they yell 'discrimination'. We will not tolerate disrespect of our Russian culture. We better learn from the suicides of America , England , Holland and France , if we are to survive as a nation. The muslims are taking over those countries and they will not take over Russia . >>>>

All the wing dingers must be sooooo proud of landslides latest comments. So your back to"he's a Muslim" thingy? and then you balk at the fact someone calls you a racist? you are something else. Keep it up, it's people like you that will prevent Republicans from regaining power.

I can't wait for all the video of your klan rallies this upcoming election.
