Obamandias
yours truly (original) | 10/17/2013 | Claud

Posted on 10/17/2013 5:53:28 AM PDT by Claud

Obamandias

I met a traveller from a bankrupt land

Who said: Two vast and empty vaults of stone

Stand in the desert. Near them, on the sand,

Half sunk, a shattered visage lies, whose frown,

And fly-ridden lip, and sneer of cold command,

Tell that its sculptor well those passions read

Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things,

The hand that built that and the heartless Fed:

And on the teleprompter these words appear:

"My name is Obamandias, Kenyan king:

Look on my works, ye Whitey, and despair!"

Nothing beside remains. Round the decay

Of that hope and change, boundless and bare

The lone and level sands stretch far away.

I’ve given up after yesterday. I am, as the saying goes, “Letting Go and Letting God.”

I only pray my demise is swift. Obama is going to destroy this nation. He still has 3 years to do immeasurable damage.

Season title for the last season of Breaking Bad.

Quite appropriate really.

Good morning, Jim.

May I suggest that we have a new forum created specifically geared for the gloom and doomers?

Maybe call it “The Summer Soldier” or “The Sunshine Patriot”?

LOL don-o.

You’ve misunderstood me. Ozymandias isn’t doom and gloom, it’s strangely comforting: “this too shall pass”.

A thousand years hence (if we have that long), no one will remember this fool.

Perhaps I did miss the point. But, my suggestion is still appropriate, based on what I read across the board.

Totally agree.
Just as the UK was sinking into a stinking socialist morass, a sparkling intellect by the name of Thatcher appeared on the scene.

It can happen again.

I like it so much, I’m printing it out in large block letters, to grace the wall of my office.
