Skip to comments.The King's Preemptive Right to Your Happiness

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."
"My name is Legion for we are many."
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
Youre as cuddly as a cactus
You’re as charming as an eel
Youre 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
Youve got garlic in your soul Mr. Barach
I wouldnt touch you with a
39 and a half Foot pole
Youre a vile one Mr. Barach
You have termites in your smile
You have all the tender sweetness of a seasick crocodile
Given the choice between the two of you
Id take the a seasick crocodile
Youre a foul one Mr. Barach
Youre a nasty wasty skunk
Your heart is full of unwashed socks,
Your soul is full of gunk
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
Youre a crooked jerky jockey and,
you drive a crooked horse
Youre a 3 Decker sour kraut and toad stool sandwich
With arsenic sauce!
Now those who don’t want to hear the song can appreciate it too.
(And a fine song it is!)
Someone on the 0bama/binBiden website predicted that next, they’ll ask you to suggest a memorial gift in lieu of flowers in Aunt Flossie’s obit.
Let me (and my loyal followers) eat your cake.
Maybe even a few more than that...
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!
That’s the kind of forward, creative thinking we need more of.
Do you despise Obama?
Not as much as we do at the Obama Clarifier. All the dirt on Obama in one place!
To the point where I will not, under normal circumstances, speak or even type out its name.
(I happen to subscribe to the notion that naming a thing is a form of blessing or empowerment.)
There are no mistakes.
You are the Shibumi...
That was very interesting....
You will please note that I refrained from excerpting myself.
(OOH! Sounds painful.)
This stupid regime is SO wearing out their welcome even among the politically ignorant moderates.
I’m trying to figure out how the “electorate” rationalizes the fact that the guy with “The Stash” now needs ~THEIR~ stash too.
“form of blessing or empowerment”
OK, so you don’t even speak or type his name.
Hopefully we will all free of his name in five months.
2012: Obama - Bye-Done
To me, it almost came across as a tithe.
With you 1,000%
And thanks for your bumps on this thread. They were funny as well as pertinent.
