The neighbors don't want drunken parties/drunk drivers in their neighborhood, but the wineries don't care and want to impose their agenda anyway.

" Yes, Obama signed the NDAA. Even if he would have vetoed it, an override would have been likely. His veto would have been nothing more than an empty symbolic gesture that would have caused more problems than it solved."

Thank you Herschel, this is what I've been telling people for years.
What they don't realize is that by law, if even one parent is an American citizen, then the child is also an American citizen, so even if Obama was born on Jupiter, he's still a U.S. citizen. As such, why would he lie about his citizenship status unless he is as ignorant as the Birthers who are going after him?

The bottom line is that Kucinich has a Y-Chromosone and Jackson finally defaulted to "He can't win" as her logic.

My point exactly DrDan, which is why I oppose this war.
