It's 4.) Chuck Norris needs some terrorists to remain in society in order to justify his existence.

I see your point, however since Existence + Justice = Chuck Norris, there must be a flaw in your logic somewhere. I find sometimes redoing the formulas with long division helps me trace back to the error.

I just blew your fucking minds, FYM. BAM!
4) As a mortal, Chuck Norris is confined by the laws of time and physics and thus not able to travel fast enough around the globe to keep up with the horde of newly recruited terrorists on the Martyrs Against Gitmo fast-track.

Obama to Nationalize Student Lending with Pending Budget Bill
Wednesday, January 20, 2010

CNSNews.com) – A bill currently before the Senate would empower the Obama administration to nationalize the student lending industry, eliminating the federally subsidized private loans millions of university students rely on to finance their educations.

Under the system proposed by Obama, the government would cut private lenders out of the picture entirely, setting the interest rates and collecting payments directly for all student lending.
Let me guess. The president didn't want to run the student loan industry. Why, he has enough on his plate fixing the economy, creating and saving jobs, managing two wars, reforming health care, overseeing the two car companies he didn't want to run either ...

This industry is already heavily government subsidized, so perhaps the government can share the profits instead of shouldering all the losses.

Sounds like the argument for Obamacare. We can only fix the problems in health care caused by government inefficiency, regulations, mandates and market distortions with MORE government inefficiency, regulations, mandates and market distortions.

Point taken, in the sense that there should be a broader discussion about the future of education and the cost of it. I'm concerned about anything that avoids "market forces" through loans, which just inflate the cost even more in the long run until even the loans are unaffordable.

We agree.

i actually feel kind of bad for the guy. his country is loaded to the gills with lunatics... then again, it's his fault for even wanting the job anyway. it's lose-lose.

note that i didn't say all americans are lunatics. obviously that's not the case... but holy shit do they ever come out of the woodwork in droves. the glen beck crowd are sure getting crazy with the cheez wiz these days.

Obama Calls Team From 2008 for Races in Fall

WASHINGTON — President Obama is reconstituting the team that helped him win the White House to counter Republican challenges in the midterm elections and recalibrate after political setbacks that have narrowed his legislative ambitions.

Mr. Obama has asked his former campaign manager, David Plouffe, to oversee House, Senate and governor’s races to stave off a hemorrhage of seats in the fall. The president ordered a review of the Democratic political operation — from the White House to party committees — after last week’s Republican victory in the Massachusetts Senate race, aides said.

In addition to Mr. Plouffe, who will primarily work from the Democratic National Committee in consultation with the White House, several top operatives from the Obama campaign will be dispatched across the country to advise major races as part of the president’s attempt to take greater control over the midterm elections, aides said.

“We are turning the corner to a much more political season,” said David Axelrod, a senior adviser to the president, who confirmed Mr. Plouffe’s role. “We are going to evaluate what we need to do to get timely intelligence and early warnings so we don’t face situations like we did in Massachusetts.”

As Mr. Obama prepares to deliver his State of the Union address on Wednesday and lay out his initiatives for the second year of his presidency, his decision to take greater control of the party’s politics signals a new approach. The White House is searching for ways to respond to panic among Democrats over the possible demise of his health care bill and a political landscape being reshaped by a wave of populism.

Yet improving the tactical operations addresses only one part of his challenge. A more complicated discussion under way, advisers said, is how to sharpen the president’s message and leadership style.

it appears as if Obama has made the mistake of speaking to the American people as if they are adults.
