Eagle, you still haven't addressed the central question of why you form your beliefs on the basis of what this movie shows. But since you're engaging DH in some of this discussion, I'll chime in a bit.
@ DoingHomework – Re: Colonialism - Understanding Obama from the perspective on an anti-colonialist makes a lot more sense than a communist or Muslim as some have claimed he is. The Falkland Islands are relevant because England is (was) one of our few remaining supporters in Europe. It seems to me now that we’ve even alienated England. Further where is the evidence that most English would want to give back the Falklands to Argentina? Is there some study done on the subject?
Oh for pity's sake, where did you get the idea that we've alienated the British and advocated for the return of the Falklands? From that idiotic movie? Even the British know that Obama backs the Falklands remaining in British. Here's an article
in The Telegraph (a British newspaper) about that.
Obama in my opinion doesn’t mean to merely re-distribute wealth in the U.S. but also across the board in the world.
And the basis for that opinion? Where are your
links and facts?
@ DoingHomework – Re: U.S. Debt - Okay I concede on the W. Bush tax cuts. However, how much has the Obama administration spend on bail outs?
The Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP) is a program of the United States government to purchase assets and equity from financial institutions to strengthen its financial sector that was signed into law by U.S. President George W. Bush
on October 3, 2008. Since I'm limited to 1 link per post, you can look up the recipients and the amounts yourself. Obama has only spent TARP funds (including money for AIG and the car companies) authorized by the Bush administration.
@ DoingHomework – Re: Jobs & Unemployment - I’d really like to see some hard evidence (or a link would suffice) that points to a reduction in government jobs and an increase in private sector jobs. It would also be very interesting to see data on how many people have just stopped looking for jobs in the last 3-4 years. Further, it would be really great to see on average how much income these new “private” sector jobs provide for citizens. What journals would you recommend?
Try the Bureau of Labor Statistics for a relatively pure look at the data, both on jobs created/lost, and the income provided by the new jobs. And before you even go there, note that a large number of the low-wage jobs are in *ahem* Texas, where the governor there likes to brag about the employment numbers.
@ DoingHomework – Re: Communism - Please list another President in U.S. history who has been so influenced by Marxists and socialists. Everyone has a right to believe what they want. I just think most Americans have no clue as to who they voted for in 2008 and have the chance to re-elect in 2012.
Why don't you
pony up some evidence that the influence is there? You make the assertion, you back it up. And by influence, that means actions such as policy decisions. Guilt by association isn't valid. If you want to go that route, let me know what church you attend; I'll bet I could dig up a bit of dirt there and link you to it.
