Amazing that an idiot abandoned by his father, from a working class family can get his self through one of the most prestigious schools In The World
this is not amazing. we expect this in the America we know (knew)
YES, it is totally amazing that such a person could have that kind of money without ever holding a job or showing a source of income, while being connected to some QUITE questionable groups
this is! but the explanation is that people did not want to know the nature of the person they were electing. the wanted "not bush" and "historical". they sure got that. he's not bush, and he's historical along the lines of Chavez :-D what is equally amazing to me, is how many people are becoming horrified by what this man and his congress are doing, but they are doing NOTHING. this his history brought alive for me, but sadly, in my own country.
watch for expanded use of military in the US. it may start with use of guard on border. perfectly legal. it is also possible legal for them to use active forces on the border if it's a national security issue. i believe we will see that. we may also see more uprisings like the tea party movement. one small incident, real or manufactured, will be enough to use the military in our states to "keep peace". this government has one serious disadvantage that other would be rulers do not face in their own countries; that is that fact that our military takes an oath to the constitution, not the leader.
this could get interesting, folks.
hey....i'm starting to sound a little paranoid :-D
