While the Ukraine had many nuclear weapons in it's territory after the USSR collapsed, those weapons were controlled by Moscow. Ukraine didn't have the launch codes.

The climate has always changed and will always change. The climate is supposed to change, isn't it?

Of course climate changes is a fact, just like the change of seasons is a fact or the earth rotating around the sun is a fact. If climate change wasn't a fact, we would never have ice ages. The point is, anybody who says "climate change is a fact" as if it's a point of contention is an ignorant idiot. There is no evidence that human activities will cause some kind of climate doomsday. That's all speculation. It's not fact-based, it's computer-model based and the models grossly overestimate warming. The models come nowhere close to modeling our complex climate. They are children playing with tinker toys.

Obama is not the kind of person who learns are grows. He already knows everything. He already has the right way of thinking. He's been told that all his life. He combines the arrogant naivete and egoism of a college professor with the smug condescension of a child who has always been told he's the smartest person in the room. The closest Obama has every been to an economics textbook is "Das Kapital" and the "People's History of the United States."
I believe it is possible to believe in Natural Rights without being religious.
Grow? Obama doesn't need to grow! If there is a mismatch between Obama and the real world, it's because reality hasn't kept up with Obama. The world needs to get in sync with our Great Dear Leader, not the other way around.
First of all, any immigration reform, like all other laws, should be done for the good of Americans, not the good of the special interests and not the good of people here illegally. We have a surplus of unskilled labor in this country. Why do we wish to import more? Illegal immigration pushes down wages on the bottom end of the scale. When today's illegal alien worker is legalized, his/her wages will go up. Will employers replace them with a new wave of illegal immigrants willing to work for below the table wages? Do we need to attract the best and brightest from all over the world? Yes, of course. Do we need more STEM-degreed immigrants? Yes, but that's usually just a smoke screen for cheap H1-B labor who undercut wages in the high-tech sectors.
