I'm sorry, run that by me again?



Run that a couple of times, being careful to listen about 30 seconds in.

I was kind of under the impression that Presidents of the United States of America would "begin to serve Day 1", rather than "begin to rule Day 1" -- but maybe that's just me.

Huh.

Is there a word for having been rendered speechless so many times by someone's actions that you can't even muster the indignation to be speechless? The attitude of so many people working for Obama is so incorrigibly wrong.

word recognition: cahlyphy - looks like the answer to the above question.

Whiskey Tango Foxtrot?
A little more slips out as days pass.
It will certainly be a fun ride as we point out all things that will really happen if the big O is elected, as they happen.
By the way LD, you should have stocked up on ammo BEFORE the 4th.

So the socialist bastard has started believing his own press.

Doesn't surprise me a bit.

With any luck, his extreme narcissism will repulse even many members of his own party, and his majority will vanish like snow in July. It would be a welcome first step toward making his term the total disaster it needs to be.

I wonder how many Obama voters are now having a Coyote Ugly time.

Getting drunk on Left Wing Tequila will make many people be very sorry.

Did anyone else notice that the audio was slightly out of sync with the video? Don't get me wrong I am not a Obama supporter but it is just out of sync enough to make me wonder if it was altered.

And the sad part is that I saw it mentioned that he is ready to rule on day 1 somewhere else as well. The nation has been taken back 225 years in the course of one night.

There's a reason why no one ever came up with a Divine Left.

Could have sworn I heard Obama say this, "rule", in an interview. IIRC, the statement was something like, "...when we are able to rule..." but I can't recall where. Maybe it was just in a nightmare... I hope it was just in a nightmare...

Spartacus Jones said...

A most inopportune and disturbing choice of words, to be sure.
Yet, there are far better reasons to be skeptical about Mr. Omama, as a brief review of his voting record and campaign website would reveal.

I'm no fan of the Bushvolk.
My only allegiance is to the constitution.

I wonder where Mr. Obama's allegiance lies.

Why do I get the feeling we're headed for another Civil War? One to overthrow our government and take back our own country.

What a mess.

What I said.
I think we will find that the use of 'executive fiat' will turn into 'exclusive fiat.' The creature thinks he's fixing to be absolute ruler.
I can only hope that all the blind worshippers who voted for him without a reasoned, logical thought in their heads pay the price of their votes right alongside the rest of us.
We are headed for a dictatorship that will make Russia proud if something isn't done very quickly.

He will have Brownshirts to enforce his will.

Old NFO said...

Scary... and no it's NOT a slip of the tongue, they really think they ARE the annointed ones! CNN had a clip this morning about gun sales and point blank said Obama is going after concealed carry right out of the box, along with gun shows.

Expect to see those actions as Executive Findings to get around Congress...

Scratch a liberal and you'll find a fascist right under the surface.

Sorry Obama. My people haven't been "ruled" since 1650 and I'm not about to start now.

Worry is appropriate, as is quiet preparation against the worst.

It's going to get ugly.

Dammit.

"God forbid we should ever be 20 years without such a rebellion. The people cannot be all, & always well informed. The part which is wrong will be discontented in proportion to the importance of the facts they misconceive. If they remain quiet under such misconceptions it is a lethargy, the forerunner of death to the public liberty. We have had 13. states independent 11. years. There has been one rebellion. That comes to one rebellion in a century & a half for each state. What country before ever existed a century & a half without a rebellion? & what country can preserve it's liberties if their RULERS are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms. The remedy is to set them right as to facts, pardon & pacify them. What signify a few lives lost in a century or two? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots & tyrants. It is it's natural manure."

Is anyone else ready to refresh the tree?

The sad part is no matter what is said by him or his staff, no matter how appalling or heinous, it gets ignored. I did not support Obama because he is obviously a dyed-in-the-wool socialist.

The farther it goes, the scarier it gets. I thought at 1st that perhaps I was just being overly paranoid, but as time goes on, that paranoia is turning to frustration and fear.

I am truly starting to believe he intends to try to initiate some type of dictator type rule. I am starting to see a type of civil war as a very real possibility. Why doesn't even the slightest chance of that happening scare the crap out of more people?

He will use executive power to take our guns and ammo 1st. After that, we are easier to control. His new Civilian Force, ala SS will be kicking down doors and dragging defenseless people off who dare speak out against the chosen one.

The scariest of all is that is is not just paranoia, but a very real possibility, and it seems everyone is asleep, or replaced with pod people like a bad B horror movie.

What happens when he bans guns on a national level, and police and military are used to enforce those new laws? What happens when the police and military are used against the citizens? What, in reality will happen then?

And with Americans fighting Obamanites, how easy would it be for an outside force to hit our shores during the confusion?

Maybe I am over reacting. Most likely I am. But I truly fear I'm not.

Quiltmom said...

Being a skeptic, I thought like billy sparks and looked at the Meet the Press website. There is a written transcript of the interview & she did indeedy say "rule". Either it didn't register with Tom Brokaw or he found the statement acceptable, but he didn't question her words.

...And that after this is accomplished, and the brave new world begins
When all men are paid for existing and no man must pay for his sins,
As surely as Water will wet us, as surely as Fire will burn,
The Gods of the Copybook Headings with terror and slaughter return!

I said some time ago that I hadn't seen anything like this since an out-of-work paperhanger in Germany.
Just remember, when his minions came to trial, they excused themselves by saying "I was only following orders."
It's a sad day when people are so afraid of their jobs-if not their lives-that they will "follow orders" against their own principles.
Watch and see.

I heard the same phrase clearly during one of the Prez candidates' debates. Lehrer laid out a question for both candidates that included "...when you rule the country as President..." If I had any hair left it would've stood on end at hearing that. Neither candidate turned a hair. Only a few people I've spoken with, in person and on this here Web thingy, caught it.

raven said...

Lawdog, this may be a shock to you, but right now I really wish I had been carrying without a permit all these years. You see, what better way to separate those who really care about gun rights than to weed out the permit holders. We agreed to go along with the idea that the State can require a permit to exercise a RIGHT, and by default, they have now registered not GUNS, but gun OWNERS of the exact type they would most like to get rid of.
Deer hunters? So what?
Activist believers in a Constitutional Government? Oh boy!

And now the truth begins to creep out...unfortunately, too many people fell under this man's spell. What too many eople have forgotten (or ignored), is that Hitler was a charismatic speaker too, and we know how THAT turned out....

Aw, crap.

Nice job, Amerika.

I was with quiltmom. I went to find the transcript.

Lo, and behold. There it was.

Oh bother.

I hope that God really does love fools and children, for we have more than our share in this (normally) great nation.

I just stumbled on Law Dog's website looking for an ethics class and found this. It is nice to know that I am not the only one who views the light at the end of the tunnel as the oncoming freight train it is. Obama is not only Not the Annoited One, I view him as very like the AntiChrist himself. I may be wrong, but the iceblock of dread in my stomach tells me that even if I am incorrect as to what he is, I am not wrong about his intentions for this great nation and its millions of law abiding, constitutional loving, military supporting patriots that make up the spirit of the flag that hangs over our capitol building. It shames me to think that we have closed our eyes to the coming darkness and handed over our life and liberty to the very people that despise our country and what it stands for. I pray that I am wrong. Scared Mom
