Great New Ad Skewers Obama Arrogance in Rating Himself the 4th Best President Ever Video
Freedom's Lighthouse ^ | December 22, 2011 | Brian

Now this is a great ad from American Crossroads! Let’s hope we see a 30-second or 1-minute version of this playing in 2012 during the General Election Campaign.

It uses Obama’s own words against him, where he recently decreed himself to be essentially the fourth best President in the history of the United States in terms of his accomplishments! There’s nothing like the ego of “The One.”

Southerners were/are Americans also, pal. I think the problem with you and your yankee ancestors is that you've always considered us Southerners as second class citizens or some sort of vassals to do your yankee bidding.

Strange I don't recall saying Southerners weren't Americans. Perhaps I should have said "Untied States" or "Federal" soldiers. Do you understand the sentence now?

FYI I'm pretty certain all my people got to this country after your rebellion so none of my ancestors spit on yours during the war (as if it would be my fault if they did!).

You ask am I "against state's rights". I am when the states do horrible or unconstitutional things (like if Brown wanted to legalize coke). My state loves ignoring the second amendment. I feel it's entirely appropriate for the federal government to enforce the second amendment if a state or locality ignores it and I feel it would be entirely appropriate if they stopped a state from legalizing crack or pedophilia or anything like that. Oregon and assisted suicide is a good real life example.

I can provide you with precise details leading up to the commencement of hostilities if you're interested.

I am, that's very interesting. Thanks.

You are only partly right that the war was fought over federal dominance. The Slave Power demanded that they dominate the federal government. Further, the Slave Power demanded that it dominate state governments, even northern states that forbade slavery.

The war was begun by the Slave Power, to give Virginia the excuse they needed for their pretended secession.

Begun by the Slave Power, for the higher cause of Slavery.

Lincoln didn’t declare war. The rebels did that, pretending to the independent identity that they legally didn’t have. Then the rebels made illegal war. Then they lost their war.

Then they filed suit asserting that what they had done was legal. They lost that too.

They and their apologists have lied about it ever since.

I skipped ahead to the part about the Bible. I’ll read the whole thing now........and there’s a couple minutes of my life that I’ll never get back!

This kinda says all we need to know about you, in your own words.

Be fair now: he said the ‘possible’ exception of those three. So he could rank higher than #4.

cowboyway quoting Judge Napolitano: ""I think War Between the States was fought over the issue of federal dominance.
I think slavery was not the reason for the War Between the States..."

Years ago, on "Brian and the Judge", Napolitano used to say George Washington was called a "terrorist," and compared him to the likes of Yasir Arafat.
I thought at the time, there must be something wrong with Napolitano -- how could he not know that the word "terrorist" was not even coined until years after the American Revolution, that it was originally connected to excessive use of an invention by a certain Doctor Joseph-Ignace Guillotin, and that in no way possible would such actions or words apply to George Washington?

Now we see, assuming cowboyway's quote is accurate, that Napolitano has fallen completely off his rocker.
That's too bad.
I think he's generally a good guy, but this kind on nonsense makes him highly suspect, in my book.

The Continentals made a point of taking care of captured British soldiers well, and in their writings contrasted that to the poor care provided by the British. After the war, about 1/3rd of the male population of seacoast towns were dead, mostly from joining the naval militia, serving as a privateer, being captured or killed, and if captured, they were kept in leaky prison hulks, ill fed, kept nearly naked.

Because of that contrast I always found the assertion of Washington as a terrorist was particularly offensive. Captured British soldiers were valuable to the Continentals, as they could exchange them for British prisoners.

Depends on what you think of as abuse.

I hope you and your friends never realize the horrors of slavery.

Once upon a time the Federal Government wanted to ban alcoholic drinks. At least they, finding no power to do so, they had the honesty to go for a constitutional amendment.

It was a bad idea, and was later repealed.

For other drugs, they didn’t want the embarrassment of multiple bad amendments and repeal amendments. So they invented the ‘tax stamp’ approach, requiring a tax stamp of 1000$ per ounce for say, Cannibis, but never getting around to printing the tax stamps, so anyone who wants to buy one needs the government to print and sell them tax stamps.

I am told that legalizing drugs would thin out the herd nicely. The drug most associated with inner city violence is alcohol, and that is legal, and taxed. The taxes on alcohol don’t seem to have much effect on violence.

Alcoholic cider is not taxed. Though distilling machinery is bulky, and gives off a distinctive scent, ‘applejack’ concentrates the alcohol through a freezing process, which is hard to control. Where I grew up, every house had a jug on the front porch (and else where) through the winter.

I read it exactly the way you wrote it, pal.

The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the states, are reserved to the states respectively, or to the people. Period.

The Slave Power demanded

The 'slave power' included the north, pagan. As a matter of fact, if it wasn't for the yankee slave traders there wouldn't have been any slaves in the South.

The problem with you neo-yanks is that you've been completely brainwashed by the False Cause propaganda machine, i.e., the federal government that you worship.

The war was begun by the Slave Power, to give Virginia the excuse they needed for their pretended secession. Begun by the Slave Power, for the higher cause of Slavery.

Mythology and lies; the neo-yankee stock in trade.

My quote is accurate. Perhaps you can provide a credible source to your 'terrorist' comment instead of your notoriously suspect memory.

I think he's generally a good guy, but this kind on nonsense makes him highly suspect, in my book.

Your book is the book of a neo-yankee False Cause Loser. Enough said.

Why is that so hard for some to understand? It is their inherit statist nature, the collective mentality, that won't let them understand, methinks. Now the Coven thinks Judge Napolitano is crazy. These guys.....

Not only did the North trade slaves in the Caribbean and elsewhere they also supplied the slave insurance for slave owners to protect their investments.

Slave insurance in the United States

Yankees absolutely have a 'collective' mentality. That's the reason why those oxygen stealing labor unions exist: 'collective' bargaining, 'collective' agreement, etc. It's also the reason why socialism/communism is so popular in the north.

Now the Coven thinks Judge Napolitano is crazy. These guys.....

I've been using Napolitano because he's not Southern and his facts are completely irrefutable. You'll notice that brojoke attacked the man and not what he said; typical libtard tactic.

Yankees will use any means necessary to make a profit from a situation while talking out of both sides of their 'collective' mouths the entire time.

Which is why Lincoln getting killed was very bad. If he had lived, reinstating slavery wouldn’t have been an option.

I'm not sure I understand what you're saying there. Please elaborate.
