While everyone else on whatever news channel you were watching was talking about the election, I'll bring up another topic.

It was on this date in 2009 that Army Major Nidal Hasan reportedly opened fire on other innocent soldiers at Fort Hood, Texas.

Hasan was one month away from being deployed to Afghanistan and decided he did want to fire on fellow Muslims. So, he fired on us.

The sickest thing of it all is to this date the Army and U.S. government is calling this workplace violence instead of a terror attack.

You know, a terror attack. Like what happened in Benghazi, Libya. Terror, a word this administration and state department cannot seem to say.

After the attack General Jack Keane testified before a Senate committee this was and I quote, "the worst terrorist attack on U.S. soil since September 11, 2001."

Still, the major has not been tried because we are fighting about his beard.

Former President Clinton was out crowing this past weekend how proud he was that he led the way for the military to be more politically correct.

I guess it's good for everyone except those who are shot by terrorist.

America has a job to do on Tuesday. It's to vote.

If you want 4 more years of what we've had, by all means vote.

If you are sick and tired of seeing the nation drift into an America I don't even recognize sometimes, you need to vote too.

Someone said once, "we get the government we deserve."

Boy, have we been asleep at the throttle.

That's my point of view, what's yours?

4 of 5 posters on this site would probably sign a petition for Texas' secession of from the US...along with the South (that never quite got over the Civil War), there are strains of racism/hatred/anti-American rhetoric that will never end as long as Texans and Southerners continue to think it is "us" against "them". As President Obama stated, we are ALL Americans and all in this together, and I will continue to challenge those who hate democracy in action for the next 4 years, if necessary.

Last Night We Watched The T-PARTY KILL THE REPUBLICAN PARTY AND THE GOP LOST SEVERAL OF THE 2010 T-PARTY CONGRESSMAN AND SENATORS.

The T-Party is out of step with most Americans and died last night.

CRY ME A RIVER......MID TERM ELECTIONS WILL BE IN 2 YEARS FOR THE U.S. HOUSE AND SENATE AND IF THE PARTY OF NO CONTINUES TO BE THE PARTY OF NO WE WILL SEE THE DEMOCRATS TAKE CONTROL OF BOTH HOUSES IN 2014.

GOD HAS SPOKEN AND HIS WILL WAS DONE IN THE RE-ELECTION OF PRESIDENT OBAMA.

We are 47% to 53%. 47% getting some type of goverment hand out and 53% paying the bill when it gets to be 51% to 49 % it will all callapse. Then Obama can go back to Chicago and organize another community.

tharris, dummy!! Check the stats on the 47%...the majority in this catagory are recipients of Social Security, Medicare and Medicadi assistance...SS and Medicare initial deductions are paid by recipients during their working careers...only 18%, did you read that, only 18% receive welfare in the form of payments and food stamps...quit listening to the liars you consider authorities and do your homework!! Take the bullock ring out of your nose and do some independent thinkingm for pete's sake!!

Now that Obama can not campaign any more, he is forced to deal with Libya, Fast & Furious , budget( not submitted for 3 years), looming deficit, jobs, economy & terrorism
. Since he was always campaigning for 6 years, he has zero experience at his 'day job'. I wonder what tact he will take ???
How can he contend with anything now that he is stripped of his raison d' etre.
That WAS his power before.

My vote was cast but once again the "give-it-to-me" group won. Now I get to look forward to supporting those who choose to hold out their hand, not work, and only gripe about how much they need, that someone else should provide. I can't wait until the next election- won't it be fun? Again.

First of all the President, no matter what party they belong to has no control over what a court does. We are not that stupid Neal Barton. Second of all the worst terrorist attack on U.S. soil since September 11, 2001 against the American people was the George W. Bush and the GOP economic policies that brought us to the GREATEST ECONOMIC DISASTER SINCE THE GREAT DEPRESSION. Yup we GOT WHAT Y'ALL VOTED FOR THEN AND IT WILL NOT HAPPEN AGAIN.
OBAMA / BIDEN 2012

Still blaming ol G.W. This is all on barack now so lets see him fix something.
I guess it will happen after he gets the community organized.

You can not change the history of what caused the problem in the first place. Do you know the reason why American jobs went to China? Bet you don't so I will tell you and you can research it for yourself if you know how to. In 2006 , the Republican controled House & Senate passed a Trade agreement with China and G.W. Bush signed it. THAT IS WHY ALL OF OUR AMERICAN JOBS ARE IN CHINA NOW.

I have never understood why Hasan didn't leave the base in a body bag. At what point do we take away person's civil rights? Hasan is a wannabe terrorist and should be treated as such. He should be shaved alright,starting just below his chin. Clinton's administration was one long investigation and he was impeached, he didn't have the respect the military,congress,senate or the public yet fools hang on his every word, Don't vote for the pretty face and slick promises vote for the qualifications.
