First, the obvious; I want the Age of Obama to be over. I can't wait, I will brag later that I survived it without losing my job or my mind or most importantly, my freedom. Till then, I accept what is and try to life a good life. I am still blessed in many ways. I'm against most everything this President has done or purposed to do. I hold my breath wondering what 'Dennis The Menace' will do next just for the wicked joy of annoying me, and other people like me.
Now for the less obvious; I give President Obama and company credit where it is due. This administration knows who to hire in order to spread it's influence. They had to know about Turbo-Tim Geigner's Tax Troubles. They must have also known that this kind of personality could be counted on to play high risk financial games. The administration must have known how J-NAP, better known as Janet Napolitano was not exactly a roaring success back in Arizona. Janet is capable of saying almost anything with a straight face. Who can forget her infamous quote "The System Worked"?
How does this White House Admin qualify people? I recall Valerie Garrett saying the she "Was Impressed" with Van Jones, the self avowed Communist who served as 'Green Czar' for a few weeks. Was Van Jones asked "Please tell us thirteen reasons (one reason for each of the original colonies) why you think the United States is the worst country in the history of civilization, extra points given for footnotes with viable email sources. Another question may go; Are you familiar with John Lennon's song "Imagine", how do you feel about it's statement that wishes for a world without religion? Are you Shocked, Angered, Amused, Ambiguous, or in total Agreement and why?
What do they ask, "Are you able to lie knowingly, convincingly and repeatedly in public, and while on camera? What did they ask Susan Rice besides that first question about lies? How about "What do you need us to do for you in order to assure your complete loyalty? Or, Please list the ten most important people in the world to you, so that we can blackmail you into perpetual compliance. How do they maintain the secrecy? Under what conditions, enticements, promises or threats? So many of the staff in this administration look drained, strained hypnotized and completely non-spontaneous. Just look at Kathleen Sebelius, she looks, sounds and acts like a robot, albeit a well dressed robot. She is stiff and starched, even more so than Hillary, which I didn't think possible. I'm sure the abortionist Dr. Gosnell is now kicking himself not applying to get a most pivotal job as Family Health Care Coordinator for Obama, he would have fit right in.
Revelation 21 Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth; for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and the sea was no more.[a] 2 And I saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband; 3 and I heard a great voice from the throne saying, Behold, the dwelling of God is with men. He will dwell with them, and they shall be his people,[b] and God himself will be with them;[c] 4 he will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning nor crying nor pain any more, for the former things have passed away.Obama hasn't been reading his Bible.
5 And he who sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. Also he said, Write this, for these words are trustworthy and true. 6 And he said to me, It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end. To the thirsty I will give water without price from the fountain of the water of life. 7 He who conquers shall have this heritage, and I will be his God and he shall be my son. 8 But as for the cowardly, the faithless, the polluted, as for murderers, fornicators, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars, their lot shall be in the lake that burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.[d]
Obama is merely a representation of what Americans have yet to have grasped is wrong with us.
All the past Administrations recognized our governance is premised upon Christian culture, if not Christ Himself. Freedom of religion was focused upon freedom between Christian denominations, not comparative theologies in anything but Christ.
Obama simply represents a way of thinking which presents itself either as a counterfeit substitute to what God provides or even in extreme opposition to God Himself in arrogant attack upon His Plan.
His reasoning seems so counter to anything American, primarily because it first is counter to anything Christian and in turn against all those perspectives in American culture which were established through faith in Christ.
The same destruction evolving from this antichristian culture manifests the truth and righteousness in God’s judgment upon sin and the eternal punishment on those who reject Him. The longer people fail to recognize His Provision, the more we will suffer as a nation associated with such a contagion.

I got this email early today. FReepers knew this long ago, but the LIV will never understand that at some time, the takers outnumber the makers and the government will run out of taxpayers to keep the country running.
Rabbi Steven Pruzansky is the spiritual leader of Congregation Bnai Yeshurun in Teaneck, New Jersey
“The most charitable way of explaining the election results of 2012 is that Americans voted for the status quo - for the incumbent President and for a divided Congress. They must enjoy gridlock, partisanship, incompetence, economic
stagnation and avoidance of responsibility. And fewer people voted.
But as we awake from the nightmare, it is important to eschew the facile explanations for the Romney defeat that will prevail among the chattering classes. Romney did not lose because of the effects of Hurricane Sandy that devastated this area, nor did he lose because he ran a poor campaign, nor did he lose because the Republicans could have chosen better candidates, nor did he lose because Obama benefited from a slight uptick in the economy due to the business cycle.
Romney lost because he didn’t get enough votes to win.
That might seem obvious, but not for the obvious reasons. Romney lost because the conservative virtues - the traditional American virtues of liberty, hard work, free enterprise, private initiative and aspirations to moral greatness - no longer inspire or animate a majority of the electorate.
The simplest reason why Romney lost was because it is impossible to compete against free stuff.
Every businessman knows this; that is why the “loss leader” or the giveaway is such a powerful marketing tool. Obama’s America is one in which free stuff is given away: the adults among the 47,000,000 on food stamps clearly recognized for whom they should vote, and so they did, by the tens of millions; those who - courtesy of Obama - receive two full years of unemployment benefits (which, of course, both disincentivizes looking for work and also motivates people to work off the books while collecting their windfall) surely know for whom to vote. The lure of free stuff is irresistible.
The defining moment of the whole campaign was the revelation of the secretly-recorded video in which Romney acknowledged the difficulty of winning an election in which “47% of the people” start off against him because they pay no taxes and just receive money - “free stuff” - from the government.
Almost half of the population has no skin in the game - they don’t care about high taxes, promoting business, or creating jobs, nor do they care that the money for their free stuff is being borrowed from their children and from the Chinese.
They just want the free stuff that comes their way at someone else’s expense. In the end, that 47% leaves very little margin for error for any Republican, and does not bode well for the future.
It is impossible to imagine a conservative candidate winning against such overwhelming odds. People do vote their pocketbooks. In essence, the people vote for a Congress who will not raise their taxes, and for a President who will give them free stuff, never mind who has to pay for it.
That engenders the second reason why Romney lost: the inescapable conclusion that the electorate is ignorant and uninformed. Indeed, it does not pay to be an informed voter, because most other voters - the clear majority are
unintelligent and easily swayed by emotion and raw populism. That is the indelicate way of saying that too many people vote with their hearts and not their heads. That is why Obama did not have to produce a second term agenda, or even defend his first-term record. He needed only to portray Mitt Romney as a rapacious capitalist who throws elderly women over a cliff, when he is not just snatching away their cancer medication, while starving the poor and cutting taxes for the rich.
During his 1956 presidential campaign, a woman called out to Adlai Stevenson: “Senator, you have the vote of every thinking person!” Stevenson called back: “That’s not enough, madam, we need a majority!” Truer words were never spoken.
Obama could get away with saying that “Romney wants the rich to play by a different set of rules” - without ever defining what those different rules were; with saying that the “rich should pay their fair share” - without ever defining what a “fair share” is; with saying that Romney wants the poor, elderly and sick to “fend for themselves” - without even acknowledging that all these government programs are going bankrupt, their current insolvency only papered over by deficit spending.
Similarly, Obama (or his surrogates) could hint to blacks that a Romney victory would lead them back into chains and proclaim to women that their abortions and birth control would be taken away. He could appeal to Hispanics that Romney would have them all arrested and shipped to Mexico and unabashedly state that he will not enforce the current immigration laws. He could espouse the furtherance of the incestuous relationship between governments and unions - in which politicians ply the unions with public money, in exchange for which the unions provide the politicians with votes, in exchange for which the politicians provide more money and the unions provide more votes, etc., even though the money is gone.
Obama also knows that the electorate has changed - that whites will soon be a minority in America (they’re already a minority in California) and that the new immigrants to the US are primarily from the Third World and do not share the traditional American values that attracted immigrants in the 19th and 20th centuries. It is a different world, and a different America. Obama is part of that different America, knows it, and knows how to tap into it. That is why he won.
Obama also proved again that negative advertising works, invective sells, and harsh personal attacks succeed. That Romney never engaged in such diatribes points to his essential goodness as a person; his “negative ads” were simple facts, never personal abuse - facts about high unemployment, lower take-home pay, a loss of American power and prestige abroad, a lack of leadership, etc. As a politician, though, Romney failed because he did not embrace the devil’s bargain of making unsustainable promises.
It turned out that it was not possible for Romney and Ryan - people of substance, depth and ideas - to compete with the shallow populism and platitudes of their opponents. Obama mastered the politics of envy of class warfare -
never reaching out to Americans as such but to individual groups, and cobbling together a winning majority from these minority groups. If an Obama could not be defeated - with his record and his vision of America, in which free stuff
seduces voters - it is hard to envision any change in the future.
The road to Hillary Clinton in 2016 and to a European-socialist economy - those very economies that are collapsing today in Europe - is paved.
For Jews, mostly assimilated anyway and staunch Democrats, the results demonstrate again that liberalism is their Torah. Almost 70% voted for a president widely perceived by Israelis and most committed Jews as hostile to Israel. They voted to secure Obama’s future at America ‘s expense and at Israel’s expense - in effect, preferring Obama to Netanyahu by a wide margin.
A dangerous time is ahead. Under present circumstances, it is inconceivable that the US will take any aggressive action against Iran and will more likely thwart any Israeli initiative. The US will preach the importance of negotiations up until the production of the first Iranian nuclear weapon - and then state that the world must learn to live with this new reality.
But this election should be a wake-up call to Jews. There is no permanent empire, nor is there an enduring haven for Jews anywhere in the exile. The American empire began to decline in 2007, and the deterioration has been exacerbated in the last five years. This election only hastens that decline. Society is permeated with sloth, greed, envy and materialistic excess. It has lost its moorings and its moral foundations.. The takers outnumber the givers, and that will only increase in years to come.
The “Occupy” riots across this country in the last two years were mere dress rehearsals for what lies ahead - years of unrest sparked by the increasing discontent of the unsuccessful who want to seize the fruits and the bounty of the successful, and do not appreciate the slow pace of redistribution.
If this election proves one thing, it is that the Old America is gone. And, sad for the world, it is not coming back.”
The problems we face today are there because the people who work for a living are outnumbered by those who vote for a living.
I hope that someday history lists Obama up there with such notables as Benedict Arnold and Judas Icaraiot.
You’ve got it, Jack. These were 20th Century Anti-Heroes. We are accumulating a new list as well, for this day and age. Today’s list will include a few Americans from both major parties.
Another Solid Gold Gem of that time is LIAR! by the group Queen. It rocks.
Romney received heavy fire for his 47% remarks precisely because they are true. The personal values of many Americans has changed. This can be reversed, but it will take time, either from a shattering world event, or over time and coordinated efforts. We should not yield our agenda, but we can no longer presume our view is that of the majority, however ill informed (and stupid!) they might be.
