Well here goes a VERY long post. I predict many TL,DR's
I tried to address every one of your recent posts WVM.
We don't need a birth certificate to know that Obama is a foreigner. He might've been born in the United States, but he doesn't think like most of us think. He doesn't look at this country and its people, its history, its accomplishments the way most of us do. He doesn't look at our history with pride. There's no American exceptionalism as far as Obama's concerned. Obama looks at America the way Jeremiah Wright looks at it, the way Farrakhan looks at it. Obama looks at America, sees the country the way the rest of the hardcore left sees it: this country is guilty, that it has been racist and sexist and bigoted and homophobic and it's been colonial, imperialistic, immoral and unjust.
Obama is pleased with himself. It's hideous. Obama is on a mission to fundamentally transform this country. He doesn't like it the way it was founded. He's got the same view of this country that Reverend Wright has, that his fath...er had, that communists have of it. Now he's got his leadership position over it. This stuff is not accidental. The job loss? The economic destruction? Drilling moratoriums in the Gulf of Mexico for no reason whatsoever? Nationalizing businesses? He's destroying it on purpose because he hates it.
Does anybody think Obama is actually trying to help things? Nobody who really is trying to improve employment and economics and national security in this country would do ANYTHING that Obama's done. But he's pleased with himself. You would be, too, if you believed what Obama believes about this nation, if you hated it like he does and thought this country needed to be cut down to size, destroyed and remade in his image. Obama, having been able to accomplish all this destruction, is damned happy and pleased with himself.
This is just a copy and paste of Rush Limbaugh's factless rants. I would love to see a quote where Obama said he actually hated the country and wanted to destroy it. '
Obama uses racially charged hip-hop/rap music to motivate the youth voter base to vote against white conservatives next month.
Racism is a weapon Obama uses at every opportunity, swinging it in a wide, careless arc and bloodying the country from shore to shore.
I can't find anything at all where Obama is actually using rap music with racially explicit lyrics to convert black youth to his "racist" cause. Examples please.
Bin Laden supports worldwide climate change legislation! Wow, climate change legislation (based on fictional philosophies and hoaxes) that will bring superpowers like America to its knees financially and militarily, Bin Laden supports that? How surprising!
Bin Laden, Al Gore, and Obama have a lot in common, foremost of which is the destruction of the West and, in particular, the United States.
Actually climate change is a natural part of earth's cycles. I really don't agree with the absolutism of such an idea anyway - just because a three different people feel the same about one topic does not mean that they share exact views on everything else. Reducing carbon emissions 17% in the next five years and by 50% by 2050 seems like a sound goal to me. "but gas prices will surely rise!...." Nothing new here. Two years ago it was $4.50 a gallon around here. I rather contribute now to a long term change, where better alternatives to power are sure to rise to the occasion than sit by the wayside and complain about it's affects me right now. Look the future. Sure, the transition might be very rough, but I will, personally, be happier knowing my children and their children will have a planet to inhabit.
Obama says changing America from capitalism to socialism will take time, compares it to freeing the slaves in America. Obama: It took time to free the slaves, and it will take time to remake America in my image.
You omitted that he also said, "it took time for women to get the right to vote. It took time for workers to get the right to organize. These conveniently trimmed quotes appear all the time and always from the people not supporting Obama. It seems the race card is being played by people against
obama most of the time. I mean, why trim that part out unless you're actually trying to make this into a race issue when it actually wasn't at all?
After losing in November, the Democrats are going to try and cram at least 20 pieces of legislation down America's throat before they leave office. This is a naked expression of disrespect to U.S. citizens and an "up yours" statement from the Democrats to voters. And it won't bother 'em at all. They'll do it anyway.
This is absolutely nothing new in politics. Republicans do the same thing. Of course they're trying to get as many pieces of legislation passed before they fall out of the majority. Is it right? Maybe not, but making it out like no one has ever done this before is rediculous.
Obama says that public schools can't measure up to his daughters' $31,000 a year private school.
Out of context. Again. “The DC public schools systems are struggling,” he said. (Most presidents send their children to private schools. Georgia’s Amy Carter was the last White House offspring to attend a public school in Washington.)
Yes, he's clearly talking about the lower quality of public schools. But the entire article outlines his ideas addressing the situation and how to improve them. He speaks about how instructors must have a standard to meet and those that don't should only have a certain amount of time to correct the situation. He also says that having a month longer in the school year can and does really benefit a child's overall education citing that many children in lower income households may not have the access to books and literature. The extra month is just that much more that a child can experience education.
You quote makes it look like he's laughing at the poor where he is really talking about solutions to the problem of low quality public schooling.
AHMADINEJAD'S 2010 speech to the U.N. and BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA'S 1995 speech say the same thing: Capitalism and the United States are responsible for all the world's probms.
leAhmadinejad and the Democrats have the same agenda: destroy America.
I can't find this one anywhere. Please link the 1995 speech.
Obama on why we should give the USA to Mexico: "Mexicans were here long before America was even an idea. Many cultures lived here together...until the white Europeans came and ruined everything."
Out of context and factually incorrect yet again. What he actually said:
"Long before America was even an idea, this land of plenty was home to many peoples. The British and French, the Dutch and Spanish, to Mexicans, to countless Indian tribes. We all shared the same land," President Obama told the Congressional Hispanic Caucus. "We didn't always get along but over the centuries, what eventually bound us together... that made us all Americans was not a matter of blood. Not a matter of birth. It was faith and fidelity of the shared values we all hold so dear. We hold these truths to be self evident, that all men are created equal endowed with certain inalienable rights - life, liberty and the persuit of happiness. That's what makes us unique, that's what makes us strong. The ability to recognize our common humanity. To remember in this country equality and opportunity are not just words on a piece of paper. They're not just words in the mouths of politians. They are promises to be kept.
Obama on his lack of terrorist prevention: "America can absorb terrorist attacks. Even another 9/11, even the biggest attack ever...we can absorb it."
So no need to prevent terrorism. No need for national security. We'll just "absorb" terrorist attacks with American lives. Nice one, Mr. President.
Is this one a Joke? Serisouly. The actual quote is:
“We can absorb a terrorist attack. We’ll do everything we can to prevent it
, but even a 9/11, even the biggest attack ever . . . we absorbed it and we are stronger.”
Wow, talk about deliberate misquote. If Bush said this, people would be yelling Fuck yeah and about how invincible we are. He's clearly stating that although we are taking all precautions if some did, god forbid, happen we are more than resilient enough to take it. This statement should be reassuring. Wow.
Thank God we have FATASS Michelle Obama delivering us from the evils of salt, sugar, and fat. I mean, just look, is that is an ASS that has never eaten anything but bean sprouts, boiled turnips and kitty litter with raisins or what? Can't you just picture that FATASS of Michelle's sticking out of the White House refr...igerator at 2AM shovelling anything and everything into her gaping, gnawing mouth?
Mindless hate. This really contributes nothing to your cause.
Obama to America: "My economists say the recession officially ended last year. Stop complaining about hard times!"
And then he went to the well again and blamed Bush again for any lingering "hard times" in America. Heh. This whining man-child president's slapstick routine always has the same punchline. Unfortunately for him, it ain't working anymore.
So all the Americans out there facing difficult times, stop complaining! That 10% unemployment number is not high. Obama said that's just the new NORMAL. Just get used to poverty and quit frustrating the president. Hell, the man hasn't been on a vacation in days...
And the phrase "the recession is over" simply means the economy is starting to grow. It does not mean that things are great. It is the new normal. In the same way that a high crime rate in new york city is normal. It doesn't make it ok, it makes it something we have to deal with and change. Your quote implies that Obama feels the job is done. It obviously an assement of where we currently are.
Obama leaves God ("Creator") out of the Declaration of Independence when he quotes it.
No one is surprised at this point.
This really isn't even a real point. Only Christians care about this. Besides, no creator has endowed anyone with unalienable rights. We as a people have done that. And that's not even mentioning the seperation of church and state...
Obama continues to divide America by race, calling on black voters to support him and "guard the change" they're making against traditional America.
Obama, far from being the man we thought would help heal race relations in America, has revealed himself to be something more akin to the personification of evil. He continues to fuel the flames of racial division for his own ends, playing Americans off against each other as it suits his agenda.
Identifying with a people hardly counts as evil. Being that he is both black and white, he can identify both. How rediculous it is to be white to become offended when he identifies with the blacks. I've yet to hear any blacks saying that he's playing the "white race card."
As far as traditional America goes, yes, it's history is pretty steeped in racism. Anyone who disagrees has never read an American history book. He is calling for the end of such times. Is that really evil? Or have I missed something?
Desperate to stop his sinking popularity numbers, Obama goes to church for the first time since taking office.
If this is a crucial point on whether or not you care for his political decision making, you should really evaluate what are the important attributes a president should have. Presidents have always
made public appearances or done things publicly to rally support. Whether that's speaking at an automobile plant to the blue collar workers or kissing babies or going to church remains irrelevant.
If Obama lets the Bush tax cuts expire, a family of four making $50,000 a year will pay $3000 more in taxes, and a family of four making $100,000 will pay an extra $4500 in taxes.
There is no good solution to this problem. Tax cuts are like a vacation. They are only good if we can afford them and all vacations must come to an end. There is a whole lot of, "Why I should have to pay higher taxes because of the bailout," but the reality of the situation is there is no good answer.
The futility of command & control government: it took Los Angeles $111 million of Obama's "stimulus" money to save...55 jobs
I agree, this is stupid. However, the problem lies with how Los Angeles
spent the money.
The audit didn't find any misspent funds or waste. But the breakdown of how some of the money was spent seems to indicate efficiency was not exactly the order of the day for project managers. The Department of Transportation, for instance, spent $9 million to install new LED lightbulbs in traffic lights at 1,800 intersections. Less the $228,000 in labor costs associated with the project, that's nearly $5,000 per location to change lightbulbs. Another project spent $4 million to install 65 new left-turn arrows, averaging more than $61,500 per arrow.
I agree that something needs to be done about this but indicating that the misspending was directly Obama's fault is incorrect. We shall see what becomes of this.
Suddenly, the possibility of letting the Bush middle class tax cuts to continue past 2010 has been termed the "Obama tax cuts" by the White House. Obama isn't "cutting" anything; he's just looking for a way to put his name on Bush's plan and take credit for it. All that's on the table is the current rates not expire. Obama isn't doing anything to help anybody.
Weren't you just talking about these same tax cuts expiring? I'm also having difficulty finding anything on this renaming of the tax cut.
Harry Reid: "U.S. military funding will be cut off unless illegal immigrant amnesty is passed."
In other words, make illegal aliens into American citizens now or he will dismantle the U.S. armed forces. Is there anyone still doubting that the far left Democrats' goal is to destroy America?
Complete exaggeration. Yes, it was definitely snuck into a completely unrelated legislation but there was absolutely no part where the U.S. military falls to pieces. I don't condone what was done but exaggerating to that level is just scare tactics nonsense.
White House: the term "Global Warming" isn't working, so we're now going to call it "Global Climate Disruption" and try to get people to believe that.
"According to U.S. science adviser John Holdren, the public should start using the phrase ‘global climate disruption’ because it makes the situation sound more dangerous.During a speech in Oslo, Norway, Mr Holdren said global warming is a ‘dangerous misnomer’ and is not an accurate description of the issues facing the planet."
"Mr Holdren is not the first scientist to make the recommendations. In 2008, NASA said the term ‘global warming’ should be avoided because temperature change ‘isn’t the most severe effect of changing climate’.
‘Changes to precipitation patterns and sea levels are likely to have much greater human impact than the higher temperatures alone,’ its report said"

Some argue that it is a blanket term, others that it's happening at just the right time to put the bill back on next year's legislation.
I don't see any terribly negative part of this.
Obama to illegal aliens: "I am standing with you, and Republicans are standing against you."
Actually it was, "But don't forget who is standing with you, and who is standing against you," and it was directed at all hispanics in America, legal or not. But who's checking.
I understand some of the trepidation of this bill but I don't see why making illegal aliens legal and having them pay taxes just like anyone else is a bad thing. Yes, jobs are down, but making illegals legal would subject working aliens to laws like minimum wage dispelling the appeal of hiring an illegal you can pay for less under the table.
In addition to this. These people have to have arrived in the U.S. before they were 16. I have a six year "colonial" status in which they have to graduate from at least a two year college. Being convicted of any major crime would call for automatic deporting. I don't see any down side to this. It sounds like a good way to clean up the scene in which illegal youths grow up in a less than moral enviroment.
Obama puts people who are protesting his tax increases on a TERRORIST LIST. What? That's right, Americans are Obama's true enemy. Marxists, Muslims and Mexicans are his allies in war to defeat America.
I read about this. However, I don't see anywhere that this was a direct move by Obama.
"The state paid a Philadelphia-based nonprofit $125,000 to compile the list as part of the state Homeland Security’s federally mandated mission to protect public infrastructure."
Obama to Latinos: "Stand with me and I'll make you all citizens of the United States."
I've talked about this already. Your statement is bizarrely twisted into what I can only interpret as you believing that Latinos should not be part of the United States. Ironic as everyone here, except perhaps Native Americans, descended from their immigrant ancestors.
Obama's new EPA regulations are killing West Virginia coal mining jobs. Obama to coal miners: go to hell.
I'm still informing myself about this one. What I gather so far is that these new regulations have much steeper restrictions than in the past and power plants will now be forced to pay fines for their immense carbon emissions. The EPA will be allowed to oversee and enforce penalties based on coal-ash disposal. Eight to nine million tons currently end up in landfills every year. The EPA will keep coal-ash recycling programs excluded from these new regulations. Bottom line -the coal mining industry is going to jump through some serious hoops to keep up with these new regualations. Companies are really going to have to adapt.
FATASS Michelle Obama plans to tax "unhealthy" food heavily so people will have difficulty buying it. Leaving more on the shelves for her FATASS to inhale, I guess.
FATASS Michelle Obama: "You cannot make decisions for yourself. I will make them for you because I feel I am better qualified to make your life decisions.... You are not an individual, you are a collection of sheep, an ant farm. Now do as I say or be punished."
Are you talking about the Healthy, Hunger Free Child act? This sounds like a good idea to me. It's already paid for with monies through the restructuring of the Food Stamp program. It increases the nutritional content to school food and rules out a lot of unhealthy food. It also "establishes local wellness policies in schools, which includes standards for nutrition education, physical activity, nutrition guidelines, and a periodic review of wellness policy." it expands summer food service for children in low income areas as well.
Obama is purposely wrecking America according to the Cloward-Piven plan. According to Cloward-Piven, the only way to overthrow the United States is to create utter and total chaos. Flood the system so that it breaks down, meaning the welfare state, flood it so it breaks down. There's no money to help anybody, and everybody needs help; everybody is in poverty; everybody is dependent; everybody loses their house; everybody is this or that or at least the vast majority of people do because when that happens then the public--this is the theory--will clamor for a powerful executive--i.e., in this case Obama--to run in and rescue it all by taking total control of it. It's a strategy of a couple of leftist communists, Cloward-Piven. Nobody can prove that Obama is following it, but if he's not, it's a strange coincidence.
You're saying that all of the calamity is purely a product of Obama and has absolutely nothing to do with the last twenty years of decision making? Or perhaps that Obama has been the puppet master of the last twenty years and has only recently revealed himself to be the man in charge?
Obama spent $800,000 of the stimulus money to teach African men how to wash their genitals
This is actually part of an HIV prevention program costing 12 million dollars. Taking that statement out of context makes it sound rediculous. However:
"If most of the men in the study wash their genitals after sex, are willing to do so after the study ends, and report that their partners accept the regimen, the researchers will develop another study to see if the “penile cleansing procedure” actually works to prevent HIV infections."
Spending money on HIV prevention research sounds pretty sound to me. I can't vouch that 800,000 is an appropriate number, but then again I have no idea what the parameters of the project were.
Obama guarantees $1 billion of our tax money for the Mexican state oil company to bolster its drilling the Gulf. At the same time, Obama won't let US oil companies drill in the Gulf at all.
Once again, we see the so-called American president siding with Mexico over the United States, hurting this country as he helps another.
I believe this is with the stipulation that it's not deep water drilling. American rigs can continue drilling as long as the proper safeguards are in position to prevent any future disasters.
Imam Obama changes America's approach to deporting illegal aliens, giving the criminals INDEFINITE LEAVE TO REMAIN in the United States.
Again, talked about this already. Its for kids.
Kids with good moral standing.
Kids with good moral standing that end up going to college.
and don't commit any major crimes.
America's health care costs will go up--not down--as a result of ObamaCare.
Just like we said from the beginning: ObamaCare means paying more for lesser quality health care, and it also means people in an office in Washington will decide what care you get or if you get ANY health care at all.
How so? No one is calling shots on who gets healthcare and who doesn't. That's the point of this plan. Everyone
Obama has added more to America's national debt than all presidents from George Washington through Ronald Reagan COMBINED:
"In the first 19 months of the Obama administration, the federal debt held by the public increased by $2.5260 trillion, which is more than the cumulative total of the national debt held by the public that was amassed by all U.S. presidents from George Washington through Ronald Reagan."
This statement is bunk. The debt under any of the pre WWII presidents is completely uncomparable. Obama and his team are spending lots, no doubt but bear in mind he basically inherited the most outrageously bad economic situation possible. Bush took a surplus and turned in into an economic blackhole. Obama is trying to pull us out of that blackhole. I'm not indicating that he's doing the greatest job, but who the hell would with a hand dealt like that?
Obama: "I Am Absolutely Committed To Fiscal Responsibility...
Just give me another $50 billion."
ADDICTED TO STIMULUS: Obama says just $50,000,000,000 more! Because if the first one didn't work and the government has massive debt and no money, IT'S A GOOD TIME TO BORROW ANOTHER FIFTY BILLION DOLLARS!
However, it does make sense if you consider the motivation is to destroy the country instead of helping it.
"Obama said the plan would be "fully paid for" and would not add to the deficit, although senior administration officials haven't released details on the financing other than to suggest it could come from closing tax loopholes used by oil and gas companies. "
By its dishonesty, unbridled spending, and headlong drive to control the day-to-day activities of all Americans, the Obama administration has at last awakened those who chose to sit on the sidelines and merely observe while assuming the country was too big and rich to fail.
The American people will rise to the challenge of overcoming what this administration, Congress, and the left-wing establishment have done to this country.
If you don't mind me asking, what are you doing personally to contribute to the cause of fixing the situation?
