Barack Obama Has Destroyed Our Values.
Thy Black Man ^ | January 28, 2014 | Raynard Jackson

Posted on 01/29/2014 7:32:29 AM PST by 2ndDivisionVet

Those who read me regularly know that I have been extremely critical of the Obama presidency; but it has always been on the issues. I have never denigrated the “office of the presidency” or made personal attacks on President Obama.

This has been one of my most difficult columns I have ever written. The only thing I can compare it to is when a parent has to sit their child down and tell them that they have embarrassed the family’s name and reputation; and if their behavior doesn’t change, the family will be forced to turn their back on them and sever familial ties.

President Obama has done more to destroy the social and moral fabric of America than anyone in the history of our country. He wants to grant amnesty to those in the country illegally, arbitrarily give legal protection to homosexuals when there is absolutely no accommodation for this in the U.S. Constitution, and legalize drugs.obama-ok-now

To my opponents, before you fly off into an emotional rage, please open your minds and actually read what I have to say.

[President Obama’s argument supporting amnesty for illegals is that their only crime is wanting a better life. Well, I can make the same argument for someone who is arrested for selling small amounts of drugs to put food on the table. So, according to this logic, Obama should release all nonviolent drug offenders who have been imprisoned for possessing small amounts of drugs.

Why is he so obsessed with “giving” entitlements to those in the country illegally? Rights are something that are guaranteed because you are a member of a certain group, i.e. an American citizen. These rights stem from a source document, in this case, the U.S. Constitution. Illegals do not have a right to be here; but liberals and some Republicans believe they are entitled to have American citizenship. You don’t earn entitlements, they are simply given. American citizenship is a privilege, not a right.

My readers know my position on homosexuality – don’t support it, period. My rationale is quite simple. Homosexuals do not deserve special treatment because of their sexual preferences, but they do deserve equal treatment because of their humanity. If president Obama spent nearly as much time talking about the exorbitantly high Black unemployment rate as does homosexual entitlements, there would be no unemployment in the Black community.

The latest foray into the downfall of our country by this president is when Obama basically said that smoking marijuana is okay and should be legal.

Two weeks ago, President Obama was asked by the New Yorker magazine if he thought marijuana was worse than alcohol. His response was, “I don’t think it is more dangerous than alcohol.” The reporter then asked the president if marijuana was less dangerous than alcohol and Obama responded with, “it was in terms of its impact on the individual consumer.”

A sitting president must always be careful of what comes out of his mouth. He must understand that every word has consequences both domestically and abroad.

Obama is a president who has told our kids that illegal behavior should be rewarded—citizenship to those who have entered our country illegally. So then how do parents make the arguments to their kids that breaking the rules have consequences when our own president tells 30 million illegals that America will not enforce their own laws when it comes to our immigration policy?

How does Obama reconcile telling kids that your sexual identity is not determined at birth, but rather by you self identifying what your sexuality is based on your mood on any given day? You were born with male genitalia, but you self identify as a female. Huh? That is not medically or scientifically possible.

So, now he is telling kids that using drugs is okay.

Since Obama and Democrats believes it takes a village to raise a child; how does a parent explain to their child that the president is wrong on these issues? Granted, no one should have more influence on your kid than you, as a parent.

We are becoming a country of no laws, boundaries, morals, or values. A country cannot survive when there are no rules governing acceptable behavior. Before Obama, it was unthinkable that illegals would be given rights that even American citizens cannot get, i.e., instate tuition for university. Before Obama, it was inconceivable that our foreign aid would be predicated on forcing countries to aggressively promote homosexual entitlements in their countries.

Two months ago no one in this country would have ever thought they would see the day when a sitting president would pronounce, in the White House, that he supported legalizing drugs. As Jeremiah asked in his day, I also ask, “Is there no balm in Gilead; is there no physician there? Why then is not the health of the daughter of my people recovered (Jeremiah 8:22)?

For the last five years, our nation has had a vicious assault on God and Christianity. We have been bombarded with messages that there are no absolutes, everything is relative. Man has become the measure of all things; to acknowledge the existence of a God has become a punch line in the public square.

I am convinced that the next presidential candidate that addresses these issues from a “traditional values” perspective will be the next president of the United States. We have drifted too far to the left and we must find a candidate that truly believes in traditional values.

The face in the White House is meaningless.

A black face cannot “destroy values” if the values weren’t present to begin with.

People have to stop blaming others for their personal shortcomings.

It’s part of growing up.

Although B. Hussein Obama has an aversion to taking credit for his abundant failures, lies, and criminal acts, B. Hussein did a credible job of describing just what his failures were in last night’s State of the Obamanation Failed Union Speech.

B,. Hussein waxed eloquent on his description of how the Keynesian “Prime the Pump” stimulus theory of economics has failed without ever mentioning Keynes, or economic stimulus.

It was a masterful slight of hand speech, worthy of B. Hussein’s reputation as a consummate lying, con-artist, (pardon the redundancy).

Now that Commie Obama has been forced to admit that Communism (Mandatory Universal Federal Medical Insurance Tax, aka Obamacare), Economic Stimulus, Fed-controlled low interest rates, and Constitutional violations have made the last 5 years a living Hell for The Middle Class in America, the question I have is as follows:

“Who in the RINO Wing of the Republican Party has learned NOT to repeat what B. Hussein has proven for 5 years to be failed Federal Government policy?”

What say all of you?

A person with authority can do physical damage.

Moral authority resides inside a person only.

Read Elie Wiesel, who forgave the Nazis and only asked the world to take personal responsibility for their actions.

Obama has not destroyed our values.

Obama’s presidency is the result of us having lost our values, as a nation.

My comment is this: Barack Obama is the President we deserve. He was voted in as a shadow and an unknown and he has, for almost 6 years, driven hard to the left, without little more than a voice objection. We deserve this President because there is NO OPPOSITION by the very people we elected to oppose and fight what this President has stood for.

We ALWAYS get the politicians we deserve.

You can only really forgive someone who repents or does something out of ignorance.

Wiesel got a bit too soft on Obama after meeting with him over the “peace process” in Israel.

Well, even though I oppose the general granting of amnesty to illegal aliens, I actually agree with this hypothetical, so the author has certainly lost his case with me here. The difference is that nonviolent drug use is a victimless crime, while illegal immigration hurts all taxpayers including me, because they receive services which I am forced to pay for. While it's true I also pay for incarceration of nonviolent drug offenders, that isn't an expense caused by the drug criminals, it's caused by the drug prohibitionists.

Similarities between Obama’s America and the old Soviet Union are frightening and growing
January 29, 2014 Coach Collins

by Kevin “Coach” Collins

The differences between the Old Soviet Union and Barack Obama’s America are dwindling away. This should be disturbing to all Americans but there are actually a certain percentage of our people, (Romney’s 47%) who believe 1984’s “Freedom is Slavery” motto and are happy being led around like farm animals. If you think we have been losing our freedoms you’re right. A recent American Thinker article, by a Russian émigré now living in the San Francisco area, paints a portrait of a drab suffocating existence under Communist rule, and made some solid comparisons between our lives today and the way he lived in Russia.

The left sensed that if they could elect a black man they would have the ultimate weapon against law and constitutionality because they could play the race card on any issue if opposition grew.

They have done it so successfully with the aid of the media over the last five years that there is literally no one willing [or able] to stand up against anything this administration decides to do.

The hidden enemies to American culture and law are walking the halls of congress in the form of John McCain, John Boehner and all of the beltway society members who really don't see life from our side and are happy to be at the top no matter what goes on down here.

One of the biggest crooks walking the face of Earth just became governor of Virginia by defeating an eminently good, traditional values candidate.

If president Obama spent nearly as much time talking about the exorbitantly high Black unemployment rate as does homosexual entitlements, there would be no unemployment in the Black community.

I'm afraid if he brought it up, it would get even worse.

That is absolutely correct. What many on this website don’t seem to get is that the problem with Obama isn’t with Obama, its with a largely degenerate and debased electorate that put him into office twice. I think the real problem is that most Americans, FREEPERs included, believe or cling to the belief that “most” of their fellow countrymen believe in the same core values they do.

That just isn’t true anymore and to the extent that it isn’t true anymore, Obama and his ilk succeed at the ballot box with the simple strategy of promising “free” stuff or higher/better or special status to their supporters.

Its genuinely hard to tell anymore what proportion, “normal” or “traditional values”, hard working, “family values”, Americans make up the general population. Obviously, it isn’t large enough to stop the populist train wreck the Democrat party has become and I think that’s because in practically all and everyone of the major metropolitan areas, success in life and especially in politics depends on one’s allegiance and standing with the local Democrat party. So, it becomes necessary to pander to the panderers that pander to the “sitz” class that munches daily on pork rinds, talking on their Obama phones from their sofas in their free apartments with a refrigerator full of free food.

The GOP, RINOs and Tea Party types included are really so far behind the curve they just don’t get it. The Country Club RINO’s continue to court and represent big business and the Tea Party types attempt to appeal to those who hold conservative values. But in a Big Government/Central controlled economy, Big Business takes second fiddle to the Big Sugar Daddy Government and the Tea Party doesn’t make any inroads with the proportion of the electorate that doesn’t have any values whatsoever except the pursuit of “free stuff”.

It really is a very sad situation for the traditional values people because in a very real sense, I suspect that they find themselves waking up in a country with a society they don’t recognize anymore.
