The King's Preemptive Right to Your Happiness
shibumi's brain | 6/22/2012 | shibumi

Posted on 06/22/2012 8:45:49 PM PDT by shibumi

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."

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.

Headline: Obama asks donors to forgo birthday, anniversary and wedding gifts in favor of contributions for his re-election.

You’re A Mean One, Mr Barach

You’re a mean one Mr Barach
You really are a heel
You’re as cuddly as a cactus
You’re as charming as an eel
Mr. Barach
You’re a bad banana with a greasy black peel

You’re a monster Mr. Barach
Your Hearts an empty hole
Your brain is full of spiders
You’ve got garlic in your soul Mr. Barach
I wouldn’t touch you with a
39 and a half Foot pole

You’re a vile one Mr. Barach
You have termites in your smile
You have all the tender sweetness of a seasick crocodile
Mr. Grinch
Given the choice between the two of you
I’d take the a seasick crocodile

You’re a foul one Mr. Barach
You’re a nasty wasty skunk
Your heart is full of unwashed socks,
Your soul is full of gunk
Mr. Barach

Your sole is an appalling dump heap
Overflowing with the most disgraceful
Assortment of deplorable rubbish
Imaginable, mangled up in tangled up knots

You nauseate me, Mr. Barach
With a nauseous super naus
You’re a crooked jerky jockey and,
you drive a crooked horse
Mr. Barach

You’re a 3 Decker sour kraut and toad stool sandwich
With arsenic sauce!

I just read an incredible post to a Sipsey Street Irregulars post.

When buying birthday gifts or wedding gifts of a computer or smart phone type, “Baptize” it with the inclusion of FreeRepublic.com, or another wonderful conservative site ALREADY loaded into it’s “favorites” menu.

(I have paraphrased the person’s intent—but, he/she was brilliant as it concerned his/her topic.)

Bath-House Barry’s “idea” gave me one! Send the gifts where they belong—just “educate” while doing it!

There will be no laughter, except the laugh of triumph over a defeated enemy. There will be no art, no literature, no science.

"There will be no curiosity, no enjoyment of the process of life. All competing pleasures will be destroyed. But always — do not forget this, Winston — always there will be the intoxication of power, constantly increasing and constantly growing subtler.

"Always, at every moment, there will be the thrill of victory, the sensation of trampling on an enemy who is helpless. If you want a picture of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face — forever."

Point well taken.

In the amazingly prescient movie "Demolition Man" starring Stallone and Bullock, the character Edgar Friendly played by Dennis Leary has a less elegant but no less telling rant about the Nanny State.

"According to Cocteau's plan, I'm the enemy, 'cause I like to think, I like to read. I'm into freedom of speech, and freedom of choice. I'm the kinda guy that likes to sit in a greasy spoon and wonder, "Gee, should I have the T-bone steak or the jumbo rack of barbecue ribs with the side-order of gravy fries?" I want high cholesterol! I wanna eat bacon, and butter, and buckets of cheese, okay?! I wanna smoke a Cuban cigar the size of Cincinnati in the non-smoking section! I wanna run naked through the street, with green Jell-O all over my body, reading Playboy magazine. Why? Because I suddenly may feel the need to, okay, pal?

I've seen the future. You know what it is? It's a 47-year-old virgin, sitting around in his beige pajamas, drinking a banana-broccoli shake, singing, "I'm an Oscar Meyer wiener."

They’re not “gay.” Lord help me - How I hate the co-opting of that perfectly good English word.

They’re anything but “gay.” They’re the most miserable people on Earth.

They can never escape the fact that however they rationalize it, blame it on nature’s mistake, whatever - they’re living a lie.

That thing that was pictured flipping off a portrait of a real man, now really. Did it look happy?

Excellent points all the way through.

The usurper does not want generosity on all levels because he can't monitor and control it. Hence the "worthy" registry is the one that gives gifts to the collective. Of course this collective just happens to be Obama's own campaign, but that's how it always works with these filthy totalitarians.
