A lot of people were taken aback today by a bold, out of the blue campaign fund raising tactic.
The campaign to retain The Usurper in the pResidency has asked that ordinary folks give up their gifts. That's wedding gifts, birthday gifts, anniversary gifts and for all we know, the flowers and candy you were going to give that "special someone" on Sweetest Day (because they already missed out on Valentine's day.)
I'm sure that if the months of December and November were reversed on the calendar, the children's Christmas toys and stocking stuffers would be fair game as well.
It is no secret that this regime is short on logic and reason. The only political theories it espouses are the proven failures of Marx, Keynes and their latter day proteges, Alinsky and Reich. What follows hand in hand with the errant cousins of Socialism, Communism and Fascism is the inevitable Cult of Personality.
Frequently in religious cults, one of the first indoctrination protocols is to divorce the neophyte from traditional ties to family and friends. Birthdays, weddings and traditional holidays are all treated as if they do not exist. This is quite evident in cults like The Jehovah's Witnesses, who stress divorcement from the outside world to the extent that their "churches" are even built without windows.
The Cult of The Narcissist Usurper is not yet in a position to make such radical demands on its faithful. But the fact that they feel comfortable in asking their adherents to forgo the traditional expressions of joy in the lives of their extended families speaks volumes about the demands they would make should they succeed in retaining power.
After all, it's only proper Doublethink that The State (in the person of its Dear Leader) that feeds you, gives you medicine, provides for your housing, raises your children and teaches them the "right" way to think should be the real benefactor in your moments of social celebration as well.
The choice is plain and simple. A free market and its concomitant free society will generate the wealth that begets generosity on all levels. The failed notion that economics is a zero-sum game can only survive with ever growing and more intrusive "sacrifices."
Sorry! I must have made a mistake coding the links -
Greetings Brother Shibumi!
This is a superb post of yours, you nail it perfectly. This latest outrage from the Kenyan Douchebag is cheesy, it makes your skin crawl, it should make any person with standards and principles cringe, it is exactly as you have described it.
When I contemplate how the current occupant in the Oval Office has demeaned the place where great Presidents have been, it is disgusting literally to the point of nausea.
No shame, no morals, no integrity, no dignity and NO CLASS.
That sums up the racist megalomaniac 0bama perfectly.
All he deserves is 21 FART salute!
Just another monarch’s version of, “Let them eat cake.” (Sarc)
Thanks! A kind word from your quarter is always welcomed.
(What’s that I hear in the background? Mongolian Throat Singing?)
According to my wife, I’m well equipped to provide such an honor!
Yeah are we back to prima noctis, or what?
If so, then I guess we are back to the days of William Wallace.
Obama, you’re a mean one, Mr Grinch!
One step further, and then The Tipping Point.
Good thing he didn’t axe em to give up their Nordstrom bling!

It’s beyond sick. It’s satanic.
+10000 , champ!
Mine says Ican’t get near open flame, else it will look like a Zippo Track shooting.
I can always count on you to boost my fragile ego.
Here’s your next music lesson. (Caution to the newcomers who might be reading this, the music is as esoteric as our taste is eclectic!)
“When I contemplate how the current occupant in the Oval Office has demeaned the place where great Presidents have been, it is disgusting literally to the point of nausea.”
We are going to have to fumigate and exorcise the place before a normal occupant can move in...;)
Gettin’ there, huh.
You left out funerals. You know...”in lieu of flowers...”
