By Michael O'Brien | The Hill

President Obama signed the $106 billion war-spending bill into law Friday, but not without taking a page from his predecessor and ignoring a few elements in the legislation.

This is a very virulent disease that easily infects male residents of the White House - there is no known cure.

Actually there are two:
1.) No re-election.
2.) A patriotic, non-violent revolution by the masses.

DEMOCRATIC SOCIALISM: "People Before Profit!"

Many knew the crimes of the Clinton and Bush administrations would continue under Obama. They are all important parts of the worlds biggest terrorist orginazation which is the multi national millitary industrial complex funded by the largest funders of international terrorism which is we the US tax payer. These three and many others are guilty of treason. The punishment for treason is execution. I am opposed to the death penalty, however the murder and genocide these three and many in congress the pentegon, and Federal Reserve Bank are responsible for make me think that the death penalty for these criminals should be considered.
