Thanks to Buzzfeed for the piece that’s making the rounds online, though in quite a conservative way if I may say so. There’s been US Presidents in the past who have used drugs, experimented with others but this just takes the cake. This is one of the most elaborate, detailed accounts of President Obama smoking pot when he was a teenager.
Barry was quite the accomplished marijuana enthusiast back in high school and college. Excerpts from David Maraniss‘ Barack Obama: The Story dealing with the elaborate drug culture surrounding the president when he attended Punahou School in Honolulu and Occidental College in Los Angeles. He inhaled. A lot.
Click on the Buzzfeed link to see the pictures of Obama, holding his marijuana cigarette-one of them made the rounds back in 2008 I believe. In addition to that image, there’s his friends, and a couple of places they hang out. Here’s the rundown, from the book:
“A self-selected group of boys at Punahou School who loved basketball and good times called themselves the Choom Gang. Choom is a verb, meaning ‘to smoke marijuana.’” The best quote from Maraniss’ piece: “Barry also had a knack for interceptions. When a joint was making the rounds, he often elbowed his way in, out of turn, shouted ‘Intercepted!,’ and took an extra hit. No one seemed to mind.”
As a member of the Choom Gang, Barry Obama was known for starting a few pot-smoking trends. The first was called “TA,” short for “total absorption.”
Along with TA, Barry popularized the concept of “roof hits”: when they were chooming in the car all the windows had to be rolled up so no smoke blew out and went to waste; when the pot was gone, they tilted their heads back and sucked in the last bit of smoke from the ceiling.
When you were with Barry and his pals, if you exhaled precious pakalolo (Hawaiian slang for marijuana, meaning “numbing tobacco”) instead of absorbing it fully into your lungs, you were assessed a penalty and your turn was skipped the next time the joint came around. “Wasting good bud smoke was not tolerated,” explained one member of the Choom Gang, Tom Topolinski, the Chinese-looking kid with a Polish name who answered to Topo.He was a long-haired haole hippie who worked at the Mama Mia Pizza Parlor not far from Punahou and lived in a dilapidated bus in an abandoned warehouse. … According to Topolinski, Ray the dealer was “freakin’ scary.” Many years later they learned that he had been killed with a ball-peen hammer by a scorned gay lover. But at the time he was useful because of his ability to “score quality weed.” … In another section of the [senior] yearbook, students were given a block of space to express thanks and define their high school experience. … Nestled below [Obama's] photographs was one odd line of gratitude: “Thanks Tut, Gramps, Choom Gang, and Ray for all the good times.” … A hippie drug-dealer made his acknowledgments; his own mother did not. Their favorite hangout was a place they called Pumping Stations, a lush hideaway off an unmarked, roughly paved road partway up Mount Tantalus. They parked single file on the grassy edge, turned up their stereos playing Aerosmith, Blue Oyster Cult, and Stevie Wonder, lit up some “sweet-sticky Hawaiian buds” and washed it down with “green bottle beer” (the Choom Gang preferred Heineken, Becks, and St. Pauli Girl). This is what I call vetting, my friends. This is what the media tried desperately to hide back in 2008 and they never bothered to check on Obama’s peccadilloes-and there will be more to surface if the discontent escalates.

Jon Stewart took six minutes to get his point across-mock Rick Santorum‘s surge in the polls, his three state victory roll mixed in with Catholic hospitals and clinics’ contraceptive dilemma and the final Obama compromise. BUT, he was not done yet. Stewart took a moment to slam Newt at the end, which again proves that he’s one of the reasons why Obama got elected.

Whoever reads this, it is up to you to decide in November if you agree with their decisions. Palin called it like she saw it, and now it has come to fruition whether President Obama admits it or not.
Writer Jim Cook:
It turns out that despite his protestations last year that he’d never implement “Death Panels” of elitists who decide whether or not American citizens should die, President Barack Obama has gone ahead and done just that. There is a actually a Death Panel that meets to decide whether an American citizen should die. It operates in secret without any public record. It is not accountable for its actions under the law.
ObamaCare still running smoothly and will not stop until people go to the ballot box. Obama has a bunch of people playing God, and that is not good. Not for the panel, not for the President. The poor soul will suffer and die-but Mercy will be by their deathbed.

President Obama will be speaking to the United Nations General Assembly on Sept. 21.
This will most certainly account for heavy traffic during this time.
Please come with flags or your own hand made signs.
Tell President Obama that you want him to veto the Palestinian call for statehood.
Thousands of Americans will be arriving via buses, trains, and planes, but most will not be Jewish Americans. It seems that the Jewish Organizations have failed to act even in the face of Israeli leaders calling upon everyone to rally in front of the UN in support of Israel (www.durban3nyc.com/).

Jeez, we are back to 2008. “The One” shall be back, conceal evidence and avoid impeachment and treason, so help him NPR. NPR wants to keep the Obama cult alive by a direct comparison to “Jesus” Christ and the crowd are “his followers”. The next level: Bring up a Bible quote to squash those “Bible-thumpin’” Tea Partiers. This week has been nothing but a comedy of errors.
The realities of governing as opposed to the unrealities of presidential campaigns may have made President Obama a much more human figure compared with the almost messiah-like status he had in the eyes of many supporters in 2008.
But that doesn’t mean there still isn’t the occasional moment reminiscent of a Bible story.
AUDIENCE MEMBER: I love you, Barack!
THE PRESIDENT: I love you back. (Applause.) But first — but if you love me — if you love me, you got to help me pass this bill. (Applause.) If you love me, you got to help me pass this bill.
Here’s John 21:15, the New International Version, describing a scene between Jesus and his disciples:
When they had finished eating, Jesus said to Simon Peter,”Simon son of John, do you love me more than these?”
“Yes, Lord,” he said, “you know that I love you.”
Jesus said, “Feed my lambs.”
If Jesus wants to, he can use his Almighty Pinky and zap NPR into oblivion. Compare a mere mortal who is causing sadness, concern and anger amongst its people is the opposite of what Jesus did on Earth.
NPR, since we’re Bible-quoting, this is what you just did: Violate one of the 10th Commandments:
Do not misuse the name of the Lord your God. The Lord will not let you go unpunished if you misuse his name.
