Exactly what the hell are we celebrating, Washington?
Canadian Free Press ^ | January 21, 2013 | Dan Calabrese

Ever the provocateur, Rob was on Twitter ripping on Obama’s inaugural comments in real time, only to draw a rebuke from a member of the MSM who said that today he should “give it a rest” and “celebrate that we can do this peacefully.”



That got me thinking: Do what peacefully? Throw a huge, expensive party (regardless of who paid for it) so that official Washington can celebrate itself?

I hate to tell you this, but our government sucks. And yet these jackoffs march and preen for the cameras in narcissistic celebration of themselves, and we’re supposed to “give it a rest” and give them the love because at least they’re not shooting us?

“celebrate that we can do this peacefully.”

I have heard this little talking point repeatedly all week. Almost as if our Masters are preparing us for the day when the transfer of power is handled amidst violence and strife.

In my opinion as I glanced at a TV, it looked like a coronation for the King OBayMe. Reminded me of Mussolini preening in the streets during WWII.

One of the snarkiest comments I read about MLK day was that much of the celebration was based on the Planned Parenthood “Buy one abortion, and get one free” sale.

“Or, if you get a free, government paid-for abortion, you get a $50 gift card, or 50 free rap music downloads.”

I was walking through the service department at a dealership and it was on a TV. I, too, won’t watch or listen to OBayMe or the First Witch.

we’re celebrating the fact that his highness hasm ocked God and declared to Amerioca, and informed God, that God ‘must have meant’ that the very sin which caused Giod to destroy sodom and Ghomorrah arte no longer sins today, that ‘God must view homosexual love and hetero love the same these days’

We’re celebratign hte FACT that God IS removign His blessings on thsi nation, we’re celebratign hte fact that millions more lives will be snuffed out via abortions (and soon via cutting off life support for hte elderly),

we’er celebrating the FACT that now hte world sees aus as an innefectual weak nation that woudl rather ‘dialogue’ than fight the fight that NEEDS to be fought,

we’re celebratign hte FACT that now our military will be so crippled by financial cuts that we will no logner be an effective deterrent to terrorism,

we’re celebratign the FACT that lunatics are running this ocuntry and certain states liek NY,

we’re celebratign the FACT that we are facign severe finacial ruin, we’re celebrating hte FACT that illegals will now have more rights than legal law abidign citizens,

we’re celebratign the FACT that we went from the most powerful nation on earth to beign hte laughing stock of the world,

we’re celebrating the FACT that our terrorist capitulating highness is about to kick God out and invite satan in,

we’re celebrating the FACT that the efirst lady has no class and that his highenss and family love shovign hteir claslessness in our faces and that they are scornful of Americans and the american way of life,

we’re celebrating the FACT that gasoline prices are about to skyrocket,

we’re celebrating the FACT that his higness now thinks he has a mandate, a duty tro cripple this country because the peopel voted him in for another 2 years because they apparently loved his nation crippling efforts so much that htey wanted 4 more years of it

Shall I go on? There’s just so much to celebrate

“King OBayMe”

I like that one!

Celebrate? Should we celebrate the destruction of the middle class?

Yesterday's panoply of faces and events reminded me of my top six pet peeves that seem to pop up on television seemingly for centuries. We never seem to get rid of these annoying assaults on our eyes and ears....even when we think we're done with them, there they are still hanging in there and still irritating us by their mere presence.

To wit (in no special order):

Colin Powell

Juan Williams

Bill Clinton

Lamar Alexander

Carl Rove

Any TV spokesman for the mesothelioma commercials

Just GO AWAY! I'm tired of looking at all of you!

I don't think I'll live long enough to see them all gone....a certain dogged staying power being their forte, unfortunately.

I totally agree that the “celebration” was a huge waste of taxpayer's money. Reminds me of the Hollywood types paradeing around in their finery, patting themselves on the back, and for what? They contribute NOTHING directly to our GNP. More hype for no good reason.

there is nothing to celebrate in washington. Quite the contrary. The only ones celebrating are the ones feeding off the rest of us

Ditto to each point you made (#22?). I
I've come to realize that TV "news" is a detriment to enjoying the
time I have left on earth. CLICK!

While surfing on the car radio, during The Won’s speech yesterday, it took less than 30 seconds, before I thought of Hitler. Why? I just finished reading “In the Garden of Beast”. The telling via real correspondence of Hitler's moves in 1932-34, as related by the American Ambassador to Berlin - his Nazi loving daughter, etc. Germany was slow cooked and then dead. God help the USA!
(The film was a completely different P.O.V.)

Instead of watching anything about the Coronation, er, Inauguration I went searching for a Bigfoot instead. I figured I had a better chance of finding one of them than seeing or hearing anything to make me either encouraged or proud about my country and our future.

Although I didn't find Bigfoot, I wasn't disappointed in the outcome. I managed to hold my blood pressure to non-exploding levels and the fascist orgasm gala apparently met all my lowest expectations.

I did accidentally tune in to the Preezy speaking at the Military Ball around midnight. Not only did he seem drugged and totally disassociated, but he halfheartedly needed to read his "compliments" of the military and his wife. And of course it was all about "me" and "I".

None of it was spontaneous or from the heart. He was like a doped automoton going through the motions who would rather be yukking it up in the Choom Wagon than attending a serious event to honor our military and their valor and sacrifices.

I turned it off almost immediately, wept once more for my country, went to bed, and prayed myself to sleep.
