Obama is not the first American who has half siblings in the other half of the world that doesn't feel responsible for them, when I was in Viet-Nam, a good many of the troops fathered children there and I doubt if their american family ever knew they would feel any responsibility toward them.  That's just the way the world is.

It is still wrong, and it doesn't matter who you are, where you are from, or what the circumstances are.  The fact this is at the level it is and there is nothing left to prove or doubt,  is the concern.  I think he met and acknowledged his half-brother, and Obama's actions are eye opening and revealing of his soul.  You see, you have a USAmerican president asking us all to give more in taxes to spread the wealth and he can't muster a couple hundred a month to take care of family is not inspiring or genuine.  As a matter of  opinion: Obama looks like a hypocrite.

Just like the rest of the wealthy political class,  do you know how much your average congress person makes or is worth?  Remember, everybody pays taxes, whether you pay fed state local sales etc. you are paying them! 

Bottom line: Practice what you preach.  He has his Mother in law at the white house!  gimme a break!  I mean really,  aren't some sitcoms situated around a similar scenario?  Double the hen peck!  That'll drive a man insane!

    I see... got ya. good... I have 0 idea what and why he cares or does not care about his family (or even if it can be verified to be true), i was offended by a portrayal of a man standing in a door, so probably got it all wrong, and I see where you were going... good, rest is irrelevant... and so its freedom of speech, and I am very much an anarchist at heart, what I am not anarchist about are very simple principles, "that all are created equal" cheers

    An anarchist at heart, huh?

    So you support the idiots breaking windows and setting fires and throwing fire bombs at police in Toronto last week right?

    Like wow dude, you are so cool.

      Anarchists are the extreme right of the political spectrum and they don't know it. IMHO.  If they actually understood the political system spectrum and its varying ramifications that run,  left to right,  right to left,  the world would be a better place.  And other models of the political systems are circular,  where the extreme left mirrors the extreme right and are just as accurate in outcomes.

        no worry, not political anarchist:) probably wrong use of the term/word, more like liberal (anarchist in a sense maybe to full conformance to the US Constitution), but in any case, I understood the post was not racially motivated and so is all cool

              You don't have to worry about going into another War and Peace Rosie, cuz he doesn't have an answer to begin with.

              He's attacking the greatest document ever written guaranteeing the rights of human beings over government and he doesn't even know it. He's simply parrotting and echoing things he's heard dumbasses on the left say on college campuses, MTV, SNL, left-wing blogs and all the mainstream news networks.

              He doesn't want to conform with guaranteed freedom and liberty for all?

              Trust me Rosie, he's never even read the Constitution.

                The dumbing down of America is what has occured over the past 40 years!  The path of least resistance,  what they don't know won't get in our way is what the progressives have been striving for since the turn of the last century.

                    Only when most people won't stand up and demand their Constitutional Rights.

                    And that sits well with the powers that be.

                    There is a movement afoot now emanating from the current administration to marginalize and ultimately do away with our Constitutionally guaranteed freedoms. It relies on masses of lazy and ignorant people to further its progress. This movement dominates our educational system, our news media and entertainment industry. Those three enterprises serve to seek out and demonize or destroy anybody who disagrees with them, their agenda or their goals.

                    They rely on people like edge who fall for their trendy political sound-bytes for their news, information and education.

                    It's people like that who fancy themselves "raging against the machine" who comprise the bulk of the movement that will put our necks under the boot of a massive, oppressive, centralized government.

                    And they don't even know it.

                    Cool, huh?

                    He thought he was an anarchist but wasn't quite sure why and now he's against conforming with certain parts of the Constitution but isn't quite sure which ones.

                    Why?

                    Probably because he thinks some America-hating moron like Sean Penn or Keith Olbermann is cool.
