That makes even more sense. I agree with you.

United States president Barack Obama says he and Prime Minister Kevin Rudd share several personality traits - one of which is humility.

He's only humble when it comes to foreign dictators, kings, emperors, and the mayor of Tampa:

You know the Marxists are concerned when they become laughingly disdainful of their opponents. They tried smearing Tea Partiers and could’t get traction. Now they go into disdain mode. When this doesn’t work they will assume their last line of defense. They will do the Hitler’s Reichstag thing. They’ll manufacture an incident so egregious that they can use it try and outlaw the Tea Party movement.

On Fox News last night Shepard Smith let it slip that Obama’s speech at NASA was not to NASA employees, but to some “folks”. I suspect they have to bus in a crowd at every speech to make sure they get unadulterated applause.

Even more than Tax Cuts, I want to see spending cuts.

There is so much the FedGov does which is not part of its Constitutional mandate that 10% annual reductions in those programs would be a good start, and would save hundreds of Billions. Even at current (pre-Obamacare) levels, it would take a while to eliminate the deficit.

That “amusement” at these silly, pesky little people in the streets public squares is chillingly similar to Marie Antoinette’s famous attitude.

I was thinking more in line with England's Queen Victoria, "We are not amused."

When he starts referring to himself as plural we have an even bigger problem than we thought.

Ummmmm, those aren't "tax cuts". THEY ARE WELFARE PAYMENTS! You actually have to pay taxes in order to have them cut...

Actually, for me they worked out to be tax cuts, in that last year I had $80,000 less income than the previous year, so the credits reduced the tax burden enough to get a token refund.

So, for the middle class group which fell into that category, they were cuts and for some made the difference between paying in more and getting some back.

While that was almost enough income for our family scrape by with some dipping into savings, everything was paid for except the house, and that was bought in a down market years ago with payments less than many pay for their car.

With a 'normal' mortgage payment and a car payment, the ends would not have met.

The sad thing is that the people in that group just might perceive the tax credits as a gimmie for them, and not see the train heading their way.

You know what? It was NEVER about skin color for the vast majority of people. And despite what this IIC (idiot in charge) does to damage this country and her people and their posterity, if in the future a QUALIFIED (unlike the IIC) candidate with darker skin throws his or her hat in the ring and they put everything they have into KEEPING THEIR PRESIDENTIAL OATH TAKEN BEFORE GOD AND THE PEOPLE OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA (unlike the IIC), then I would gladly vote for him or her to be my leader (unlike the IIC), because it’s NOT about skin color. It’s about RAMPANT STUPIDITY and DESTRUCTION OF AMERICA AS WE KNOW IT.

Pyrrhic victory

from dictionary.com
–noun
a victory or goal achieved at too great a cost.

Origin:
1880–85; < Gk Pyrrikós; after a remark attributed by Plutarch to Pyrrhus, who declared, after a costly victory over the Romans, that another similar victory would ruin him

Pyr·rhic victory (pĭr'ĭk)
n. A victory that is offset by staggering losses.

Pyrrhic victory [( peer -ik)]

A victory that is accompanied by enormous losses and leaves the winners in as desperate shape as if they had lost. Pyrrhus was an ancient general who, after defeating the Romans, told those who wished to congratulate him, “One more such victory and Pyrrhus is undone.”

Pyrrhic victory

A victory that is offset by staggering losses, as in The campaign was so divisive that even though he won the election it was a Pyrrhic victory . This expression alludes to Kind Pyrrhus of Epirus, who defeated the Romans at Asculum in a.d. 279, but lost his best officers and many of his troops. Pyrrhus then said: "Another such victory and we are lost." In English the term was first recorded (used figuratively) in 1879.

Those are just income taxes, and do not include the 15% or so of cell phone bills, fuel taxes, excise taxes, and all the hidden taxes which are passed on to the common folk in every item we buy. Everyone pays taxes, the real illusion is that some don’t. Often, the impression is given prices rise because of “corporate greed” and not the increase in regulatory fees and other taxes imposed on those who provide goods and services.

He drinks too much because he cannot handle the job (or being married to that beard, don't ya think?).

I don’t mean to be offensive, but you’re naive. Imposing Marxism on the world is a fight to the death. This is the Left’s best chance to take America down. Dedicated Marxists have no problem at all with using violence to achieve their end.

This isn’t hypothetical. History shows us Marxism has always imposed itself via force. There is not one instance where it hasn’t.

I'm betting that by then he won't really care if he loses the House and Senate in November. I'm betting that, by then, he'll have cap and tax, amnesty, and probably card check, too, in addition to "health" "care" "reform" and the porkulus, maybe even porkulus II (since the first one didn't work -- surprise, surprise) along with a reliable leftist replacement on the SC. He'll do it the same way he did the HC monstrosity last month -- beg, borrow, steal, threaten, jam it through congress any thug way he can, while he still has the majority of both houses.

And of course there are also all his departments' policies, including the ludicrous concept by the EPA that CO2 is a pollutant, interference in talk radio by FCC "community" rules, and all manner of other economy- and freedom-killing strategies.

By November, this traitorous domestic agenda will be complete. He'll just sit back the rest of his term and watch it work to destroy our economy and our freedom, while he continues to accomplish his last remaining objective -- turning us into a toothless, third-rate power by his foreign policy strategy of backhanding our allies and bowing and scraping before our sworn enemies. All the while knowing that, come 2013, the Republicans won't have the courage to turn any of it back -- just like they have never previously had the courage to reverse any big government program of the last 100 years.

This is the legacy 0 wants -- the "transformation" of the United States that he made clear in the campaign that he'd work to achieve. No one should be surprised that he's well on the way to doing it.

I don’t mean to be offensive, but you’re naive.

Then let me clarify.

1) To pull off a Reichtag moment, in America, would require a series of events and not just one event. Or were you thinking along the lines of a nuclear bomb? That is truly the nuclear option upon which fallout would rain on Democrat and Republican alike. The more complicated a conspiracy the more likely it is to fall apart.
2)The Left is positioned in places of power but is not poised for total power. For instance, how is the democrat controlled federal government going to "take control" of the state of Florida where both house and the governorship are under republican control? And the other 49 states?
3)The left does not have total control of media - Internet, talk radio, cell phones, etc. The left poisons the airwaves but the right does counter.
4) Yanking the guns away from armed citizens will be costly. Where it will cost the left most is in blood but mostly in time. The longer they drag out such a coup the longer their support is likely to wain.
5) Are there that many dedicated marxists? There are a lot of fellow travelers (looters, hanger-ons, single issuers, etc), but what are they going to do, eliminate elections?

The best, most direct way for these clowns to pull off the coup is first by stealth - they will never admit that Obama was bred and groomed to be a leftist and never reveal what their true agenda is. Second, they will try to consolidate power (health care and cap/trade) and hook as many people to the federal government teat (amnesty, unions, card check), all at the risk of bankrupting the country. If they are that close to marxist control, then why the mad dash to shove all this crap through? No, they realize that their position is tenative.

They will try to undermine the Tea Party movement, but I have to say good luck suckers. But if you ask me their efforts so far are lame and rather gutless. The most audacious thing they do is lie.

And no, the dedicated marxist will never give up.

Understand. I saw today that an estimated 111,000 people participated in Tea Parties yesterday. Not bad crowds considering it was a work day. To me the fuse is already lit and its burning toward armed rebellion.

Actually I see several possible scenarios:

1. The left creates a bogus crisis and declares martial law. or some sort of emergency powers, whereby it will attempt to shut down all but government or gov’t-controlled communication. This presages the suspension of elections. Patriots will rebel.
2. Onada refuses to leave office despite being voted out by the electorate. Patriots will rebel.
3. The Marxist Onada continues his assault on America. Patriots finally rebel. If impeachment and peaceful ouster from office does not work patriots will rebel.

The problem the left has created for itself is its enforcers. All are street or union thugs. Controlling them, if Onada wished to, would be problematical. As we saw in New Orleans with Jindal’s son and his girlfriend, violence is very much part of the Marxist arsenal. No Marxist gov’t has ever come into power except via violence.
