When You've Lost the Shrieking Radical Cartoonists, You've Lost Them All

Barack Obama seems to be losing the far left wing of his support, as evidenced by pressure from the left wing blogosphere on a number of issues and most recently, a rant from bigoted cartoonist Ted Rall.

Pardon me, but didn't we warn you of this before the election?

Obama is useless. Worse than that, he's dangerous. Which is why, if he has any patriotism left after the thousands of meetings he has sat through with corporate contributors, blood-sucking lobbyists and corrupt politicians, he ought to step down now — before he drags us further into the abyss.

I refer here to Obama's plan for "preventive detentions." If a cop or other government official thinks you might want to commit a crime someday, you could be held in "prolonged detention." Reports in U.S. state-controlled media imply that Obama's shocking new policy would only apply to Islamic terrorists (or, in this case, wannabe Islamic terrorists, and also kinda-sorta-maybe-thinking-about-terrorism dudes). As if that made it OK.

In practice, Obama wants to let government goons snatch you, me and anyone else they deem annoying off the street.

Preventive detention is the classic defining characteristic of a military dictatorship. Because dictatorial regimes rely on fear rather than consensus, their priority is self-preservation rather than improving their people's lives. They worry obsessively over the one thing they can't control, what George Orwell called "thoughtcrime" — contempt for rulers that might someday translate to direct action.

If Rall and his peers had actually bothered to vet Obama prior to the election, instead of acting as his fluffer, then perhaps he could have avoided the nasty shock of discovering that Barack Obama is exactly what we said he would be if he won the election. America voted for a charismatic, radical orator with a well-oiled field organization and brilliant propaganda, and we got it.

Like the spoiled children they are, they don't seem willing to pay the cost for their decision.

It has been noted elsewhere that Rall lost his job last week, raising the question of whether this is the source of his new-found attitude...

And it is surprising what people will espouse when their income depends on their political views?

All of the conservative blogs seem surprised when Obama does something that will hurt the USA.  You either haven't figured out, or have forgotten, Obama does not want the USA to succeed.  If nothing else will convince you of this, him wanting a civilian police force UNDER HIS CONTROL that has as many members as the military, and funded equal to the military, should convince you he wants to take over the country.  What did Adolph Hitler call his civilian police force?  Obama can't activate the Nation Guard, governors have to do that.  With his civilian police force that is as strong as the military he could easily take over the country.

I honestly believe Obama wants to be King, not president.  He knows he can't be king in a republic (we are not a democracy), so he is aligning himself with those who will help make him king.  Since a person can only be king in a dictatorship, Obama is friends of dictatorships since he wants to have one of his own. Using this logic it is easy to see why he wants to be friends with Venezuela and Cuba.

Remember, he had to have a title BEFORE he was president, so he CREATED the title of "Office Of The President Elect." How long will it be before he DEMANDS to be called "Your Majesty?"

He bowed to the Saudi King because the king is like the Godfather to Obama.  You only bow down to those you are in allegiance to.  In that simple act Obama showed the world who he is subject to, and who he honors the most.

I think Obama's plan is to turn the USA over to other countries, and he figures he will be crowned king over it, or a part of it.  Now I understand why he couldn't keep from laughing during his 60 Minutes interview.  He knows they are helping him become king, and he will be ruling over them as their king some day.

I want to say is, your viewpoint is not wrong, but many people do not like the idea we can not make generalizations, the need to prove that it is completely correct, it is not easy, so I only wrote his own opinion; on alibaba like sony and you can compete? Who said it was not clear, of course, it is entirely different industries, but how can you did a few years whether they need to compete with a market? Or too short a lot of things that, like a happy life, and I wish you good luck, I wish everyone good luck. 杭州店面装修男人fd弱的杭州办公室装修杭州江干区空调维修男人f的杭州室内装修中drd联在缝纫机维修男人最脆弱的T恤衫腻子粉银行pos机pos机代办反向链接杭州搬家公司杭州复印机出租杭州搬家杭州搬家seo杭州植物租赁杭州花卉租赁银行POS机杭州花卉出租杭州花卉公司seo文化衫
