Skip to comments.Obama is Sinking America
Posted on 01/21/2013 9:35:22 AM PST by Kaslin
Although it certainly wasnt Oscar material, I still love the 1989 film Erik the Viking, starring, among others, Tim Robbins, Mickey Rooney, Eartha Kitt and John Cleese. Its a campy British comedy-fantasy about a band of misfit Vikings on a quest to reach Valhalla.
In one scene, the motley mob finds its way to the island of Hy-Brasil, a happy, peaceful, sunlit land populated by white-robed, free-loving, uber-pacifist morons.
You know, liberals.
Through a series of immaterial events, the island begins to sink into the ocean. As it does, Erik and crew evacuate and re-board the ship while Hy-Brasils inhabitants blithely remain, singing out of tune and playing harps, horns and other instruments badly.
As the crest of the island dips beneath the sea, King Arnulf a blundering buffoon played by Terry Jones of Monty Python fame exclaims: Everyone, stay calm. This is not happening.
Itd be funny if it werent true, but America has become Hy-Brasil, Barack Obama King Arnulf and liberals of every stripe his white-robed, mind-numbed, sycophantic subjects. Our enemies, both foreign and domestic some of whom have The Honorable before their names are laughing themselves silly.
Indeed, progressives are a caricature of themselves, fully given over to pseudo-utopian, relativist ideals that remain ludicrous hopelessly unattainable by any objective standard.
Still, our patchouli-wearing, pervert-pride-prancing, pay-for-my-abortion-shrieking friends are anything if not determined. Theyll let neither reality nor the U.S. Constitution stop them. Nothing, it seems especially not those mealy-mouthed puddin pops running the GOP can keep this ship of fools from sinking a once great nation.
Problem is, theyre taking us all down with them.
How do you stop skyrocketing debt and deficits that even liberal economists admit, if left unchecked, spell Americas doom? You dont. You print trillions more and spend it like game tokens at Chuck E. Cheese. The party must go on or the kiddos get cranky. Sugar Daddy Baracks got hungry mouths to feed.
How do you stop evil nutjobs pumped full of psychotropic drugs from shooting-up gun free zones? Why, by leaving them heavily armed, of course. By unconstitutionally grabbing guns from the very law-abiding citizens positioned to tap two in the body and one in the head whenever these death-culture byproducts start killing.
Liberal logic: Up is down, down is up, well make it so and we wont give up!
In sum, you spend your way out of debt, tax your way to higher employment, fornicate your way disease-free, abort your way to non-violence and unilaterally disarm your way to national security.
Now, some of you may say, But wait, Obama knows exactly what hes doing. Hes no buffoon.
I both agree and disagree. Yes, the progressive dogma that courses through his veins a mind-altering hallucinogen that gives liberals the munchies for power is, indeed, inherently sinister.
Still, he believes it with every ounce of his nicotine-hardened heart.
By deliberately deconstructing Americas constitutional republic our free-market form of government and replacing it with a Euro-socialist, moral relativist amalgam of his liking, this misguided anti-colonialist radical thinks truly believes that hes doing the right thing.
Such are the ways of the well-meaning tyrant.
People sometimes ask me how it is that I manage to stay so optimistic to maintain deep joy as we watch our nations foundations crumbling around us like the walls of Jericho. They wonder how it is that Im able to pick up and carry on with a smile as America heads careening toward cliffs edge.
Its easy. First, I put my full faith and trust in the Sovereign Creator of the universe who is the same yesterday today and forevermore: Christ, God incarnate, who is always faithful to those who have faith in Him.
Then, I laugh at them; liberals, that is. I make fun of their dull-witted, self-defeating, abjectly wicked worldview. I follow Gods example. Of those who align themselves against His laws and His nature, Psalm 2:4 says, He who sits in the heavens laughs. The Lord scoffs at them.
How can you not scoff at the silly twaddle theyre hocking?
Ultimately, Ive read the end of the book. I know what happens. The good guys win. That keeps me smiling no matter what goes down on the culture-war front. It keeps me snickering.
Still, once I stop laughing, I get about the business of trying, with every fiber of my being, to defeat them. Not reason with them, not compromise with them, not suck up to them and certainly not trust them.
Oh, Ill love them. I must. Im commanded to by the Lord I serve. Ill pray for them, too. Do it all the time. But Ill never, ever, under any circumstances, trust them.
You may be surprised to learn that, in various forms, I get dozens sometimes hundreds of pieces of hate mail each week. My recent favorite came from a delightful bloke with the email handle firstname.lastname@example.org. Someday, someone may just choose to use their second amendment right (sic) to put a bullet in your worthless head. You are a disgusting waste of life you uneducated, non-human, uncivilized, evil, parasitic Nazi maggot. Shame on you.
Right. Shame on me.
How do you reason with, compromise with, suck up to or trust that?
You dont. You defeat it.
Abraham Lincoln, a man of deep faith, forecast nearly a century-and-a-half ago our current state of the union: America will never be destroyed from the outside, he said. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.
President Obama sits atop the highest perch of a nation fast-sinking. Everyone, stay calm. This is not happening, he assures us.
But it is happening. Were destroying ourselves from within. Were going down, and the only way to stop it is to utterly defeat those responsible.
In the meantime, they sure are fun to laugh at.
OF COURSE HE IS. THAT IS WHAT HE HAS BEEN SAYING AND DOING FOR THE PAST 4 YEARS. HE IS NOT STUPID. HE IS NOT MISINFORMED. HE DOES NOT MAKE BAD DECISIONS. HE IS DOING EXACTLY WHAT HE INTENDS TO DO. AND WE ARE LETTING HIM DO IT.
We (the majority of the American people) apparently elected him to do it.
I am disgusted, but, my sense of outrage is muted. We (as a nation) are getting what we asked for. We (as a nation) are the problem. He’s just a terrible symptom.
Yes - he is not stupid or clueless because that assumes he really takes his oath to protect and defend the Constitution seriously. Maybe to him this doesn’t matter since he’s swearing on the Bible and not the koran.
His real enemies are people like me, freepers, and other conservatives who don’t want to give up our liberty to be “taken care of” by the bureaucrats.
” We ... are getting what we asked for.”
The problem with democracy is, everybody has to endure what the majority (plurality, really) voted for.
Obama is living like a KING. He does not like the job of being President. He said so a few months back. Yet he is dong the bidding of whatever power got him elected in the first place. He is an excellent front man.
HOW CAN ANYONE BE A LIBERAL??? Of course there are a priviledged few that suppose they will be the head and lead the WORLD, ALL THE WHILE DOING WHATEVER THEY PLEASE AND NOT ABIDING BY THE LAWS CREATED TO CONTROL THE POPULACE.
This is not new. Chavez is so engaged at this moment, Castro, and Russia's dictators Lenin, Stalin, etc. Is this what we desire for America?
This is what we are getting step by step and we do nothing, say nothing ... We shrug and shake our head and go about our regular routines.
God help America ... Nothing is impossible for God the people are told in the Holy Bible how to live, examples for every situation,: we are greatly blessed in America. Let us open our eyes and see how near we are to finding changes we do not want.
Science Fiction was interesting to me growing up to be an adult, BRAVE NEW WORLD; 1987; FARENHEIGHT 451 RAY BRADBURY, MANY OF Isaac Asimov Foundation series and others have posited societies that come under complete government control. SCARY INDEED! TRUTH BEFORE OUR EYES.
The author provided some great visuals to an otherwise depressing topic.
It seemed very appropriate to have a movie about Nero on the same weekend that our Nero would be crowned for his second term.
There are sites with the 4yrs added up and they seem all to cite failures. Fox has such a site on its oped area. Listing all the items from the Adm. , it is astonishing to see how logical, common sense voters could have kept voting Dem. and Obama when the stats showed complete destruction of our heritage, history and values. Yet, the Low Info voters kept putting Blue State guvs, state legs. and Obama plus Congressional socialists into power. It is amazing and sad. And today, the same doofus types still said, Obama will bring us together and he will help America to....do what? When asked, the answer is some type of blather that is factually inept.
IOW, "the road to h&ll is paved with good intentions."
- Motto of the Democrat Party
In truth, we didn't. It has (of course) been vastly underreported (and forgotten) that sometime late last summer, Obama had selected a Spanish company to tally the votes in November's election. What was missing from this announcement was that the Spanish company (whose name I have forgotten) was owned by none other than George $oro$.
Does that turn on any lights for you?
“Does that turn on any lights for you? “
Not really, because all the polls, including those by conservative pollsters, showed the same basic result.
While I am sure there was fraud, I still think the overall results were pretty reflective of the vote.
I don’t believe every last pollster was in cahoots. I’m just not that big of a conspiracy theorist.
It should have been a BLOWOUT for Romney if this nation had an character or principles to speak of. All the fraud in the world shouldn’t have made a difference.
All that citizens need to know from the Constituton and Supreme Court case precedents in order to close down Obama and the unconstitutionally big federal government would fill about two or three pages. The problem, as Thomas Jefferson prophetically wrote, is widespread citizen apathy.
"Cherish, therefore, the spirit of our people, and keep alive their attention. If once they become inattentive to the public affairs, you and I, and Congress and Assemblies, judges and governors, shall all become wolves. It seems to be the law of our general nature." - Thomas Jefferson (Letter to Edward Carrington January 16, 1787)
Citizens need to know the Constitution's Section 8 of Article I, Article V and the 10th Amendment, and a few excerpts from case opinions to shut down Obamacare and stop Congress's gun grab.
In fact, Judge Andrew Napolitano will read Section 8, Congress's limited powers, to you.
The following excerpts from case opinions would shut down constitutionally indefensible federal Obamacare.
"State inspection laws, health laws, and laws for regulating the internal commerce of a State, and those which respect turnpike roads, ferries, &c. are not within the power granted to Congress." --Gibbons v. Ogden, 1824.
"Congress is not empowered to tax for those purposes which are within the exclusive province of the States." --Justice John Marshall, Gibbons v. Ogden, 1824.
"Inspection laws, quarantine laws, health laws (emphasis added) of every description, as well as laws for regulating the internal commerce of a state and those which respect turnpike roads, ferries, &c., are component parts of this mass." --Justice Barbour, New York v. Miln, 1837.
Direct control of medical practice in the states is obviously beyond the power of Congress. Linder v. United States, 1925.
And the following excerpt from a case opinion would stop Congress dead in its tracks concerning gun control.
"The second and tenth counts are equally defective. The right there specified is that of "bearing arms for a lawful purpose." This is not a right granted by the Constitution. Neither is it in any manner dependent upon that instrument for its existence. The second amendment declares that it shall not be infringed, but this, as has been seen, means no more than that it shall not be infringed by Congress. This is one of the amendments that has no other effect than to restrict the powers of the national government, leaving the people to look for their protection against any violation by their fellow citizens of the rights it recognizes (emphasis added), to what is called, in The City of New York v. Miln, 11 Pet. 139, the "powers which relate to merely municipal legislation, or what was, perhaps, more properly called internal police," "not surrendered or restrained" by the Constitution of the United States." --United States v. Cruikshank, 1875.
Sadly, as much as patriots accuse Obama of ignoring the Constitution, I often think that many patriots haven't taken the initiative to read the Constitution and related material. Otherwise, Obama and corrupt Congress would have been put out of business with respect to wrongly usurping 10th Amendment protected state powers long ago.
I agree, it should have been despite the fact that Romney was a lackluster candidate.
However, in the last month or so before the election, the polls were trending to Romney with an average of about 4% points over zero. They were also reporting that Dems were discouraged while Repubs were encouraged. Those two things don't equate to a 51% victory by zero.
So, we look at the underreported stories in selected areas where as many as 148% of registered voters cast ballots, giving zero 99% of the vote. Statistically, that simply isn't possible in a fair and honest election. This wasn't one precinct, this was multiple precincts across the country in must-win states.
And, no, I'm not a conspiracy theorist nutjob. But, I do look closely at anomalies. If one precinct reported problems, ok, that's one precinct. But when multiple precincts across the country report similar problems, smoke makes fire.
