We were a little late getting to the airport and then drove around a bit looking for the TEA party group. Couldn't find them. Saw a group of peaceniks protesting Obama and was tempted to join them, but drove on. Saw four or five groups of civilians standing around waiting to pay homage to their king, but no obvious protesters other than Peace Fresno. Finally spotted a group of adoring Obama fans with an empty spot nearby, not a parking space, but a space just large enough for our van. So asked Chris to pull over and leave the ramp down as if we were loading/unloading.
I asked Chris to write "Obama Lied!" on a signboard and bring it out to me after I joined the group. I rolled over to them and then Chris brought me my sign and I sat innocently with my back to the group for a little while.
No one noticed me at first. I spotted a guy right behind me who had "USMC" on the back of his hat, so I greeted him with, "Semper Fi!" He turned and shook my hand, then saw my sign and instantly turned back to the crowd.
I then shouted out, "Obama lied and people died!!"
Now, that started a commotion. Soon had quite a dialog going. Told them Obama lied about everything. Said he lied about Benghazi. Lied about the IRS. Lied about health care. Lied about if you like your policy you can keep it. Lied about if you like your doctor you can keep your doctor. Lied about ending the wars and bringing all the troops home. Asked them how they liked being lied to. They said everyone lies.
Told them they were suckers, Obama is a communist. They said, so? What's wrong with that? I noticed they had several children there and asked them how they're going to like paying all the debt Obama's running up. They were horrified. I don't think they've ever been exposed to anyone questioning authority. Poor children have never been exposed to the constitution, the founding principles, Truth, patriotism, etc. They've been force fed the Marxist lie since birth.
At one point, one big guy told me he'd like to shove my words down my throat. Now ain't that special. I pointed out that that is the Marxist way. Someone says something they don't agree with and they immediately jump to violence.
I told them they were suckers for free foodstamps, free Obama phones, free healthcare. One big black guy said something to the effect that Obama was doing all this for our own good and at least now I can get free health care. Told him I work full-time, pay my own way and don't need or want his "free" health care. Then told him, but at least you can now marry your boyfriend. He told me that was none of my business.
Now we finally have a point we can agree on. None of this is any of the federal government's business.
But I think the significance of that final point was lost in the shuffle.

Good job, Jim!
Good job Jim. Wish I could have been there. You can’t argue with a freeloader wearing a Barry Soetoro T-shirt going around with his pants on the ground. The boy is happy being a government slave. Fascist communism is fine with him as long as the freebies keep rolling in. Do you know if was he an illegal alien?
May God bless you for all you do!! Standing As!!!
