Barack Hussein Obama hates America



Remember... No, he wouldn't say the Pledge, Yes, he dramatically quit wearing a flag pin:
"You know, the truth is that right after 9/11, I had a (flag) pin. Shortly after 9/11, particularly because as we’re talking about the Iraq war, that became a substitute for, I think, true patriotism, which is speaking out on issues that are of importance to our national security, I decided I won’t wear that pin on my chest..." -- Barack Obama
So look how he "fixed" O-force-One, by removing the American Flag:




Yes he had Cuban flags in his Houston campaign office:




Yes he worked for 20 years with an unapologetic terror bomber:




Yes the (D)emocrats trashed the flags at Barack Hussein Obama's coronation:




It is a pattern:




Ace documents the most recent outrage:

Obama Cancels National Anthem at Event to Free Up Time for Yet Another Speaker Singing His Praises

No Pledge, No Pin, No Flag, trashed Flags, canceled National Anthem... etc... etc...

Not only has it been repeatedly demonstrated that Barack Hussein Obama is ashamed of his country, but he is running for "Commander-in-Chief" of our military forces in spite of a complete lack of military experience and has repeatedly smeared our troops:

“We’ve got to get the job done there and that requires us to have enough troops so that we’re not just air-raiding villages and killing civilians, which is causing enormous pressure over there." -- Barack Hussein Obama Jr.(D)

At a fancy '05 Manhattan fundraiser, Obama told the approving crowd that the Bush administration was using soldiers in Iraq as "cannon fodder."

“You know, I’ve heard from an Army captain who was the head of a rifle platoon — supposed to have 39 men in a rifle platoon. Ended up being sent to Afghanistan with 24 because 15 of those soldiers had been sent to Iraq. And as a consequence, they didn’t have enough ammunition, they didn’t have enough humvees. They were actually capturing Taliban weapons, because it was easier to get Taliban weapons than it was for them to get properly equipped by our current commander in chief.” -- Barack Hussein Obama

..."oftentimes our women servicemembers are more prone to post-traumatic stress disorder partly because they — there's a sad, but real, problem of sexual harassment and sexual abuse for women veterans, and that makes them much more prone, then, to have post-traumatic stress disorder." -- Barack Hussein Obama Jr.(D)

"If you talk to commanders on the ground there, they'll tell you, 'Instead of having another platoon, I'd rather have a couple of agricultural specialists." -- Barack Hussein Obama Jr.(D) who hasn't been "on the ground there" in Afghanistan

To sum up... Contrast Michelle Obama, who freely admits she isn't proud of her country, with Sarah Palin:

"(America is) just downright mean." -- Michelle Obama(D-Ayers)

"For the first time in my adult lifetime, I am really proud of my country." -- Michelle Obama(D-Jeremiah Wright) on Barack Hussein Obama runnning

Versus

"We believe, too, in the promise of this country, in the opportunities that we wish for ourselves and for each other, for our sons and for our daughters. We believe America is not the problem. We don’t have to apologize for being Americans!" -- Sarah Palin(R)

A vote for Barack Hussein Obama is a vote for the 3000 racist haters he has associated with for the last 20 years and who he will bring with him to Washington.

Good Lord...

The media finally did some digging!

On Joe the Plumber. Bill Ayers? Who? Can't recollect anything about him. Love the way Obama mocks Joe in his campaign speech too. I guess Joe must be one of those "bitter clingers" that Obama hates.

Too bad Joe the Plumber has received more scrutiny in 24 hours than Bill Ayers has in the past 24 months.
Yep, and that's the way it's going to work for a good long while. Until the fifth column media gets taken over by people who actually care about reporting, or goes out of business. How dare a plumber question their Lord and Messiah! KILL HIM!

Joe the Plumber is us. Bill Ayers is them. And we’re going to have to fight, quite possibly literally, to keep them from destroying us. All “us” really wants is for “them” to leave us the fuck alone — which they cannot and will not do. Because they are convinced, beyond all reason, beyond all argument, that they know better. Messing with us, dominating us, ruling us, silencing us, stifling us, strangling us, with all the power they can give to relentless, expansionist government, is what they live for. It’s what they are. It’s what they do. They can’t have us walking around loose, with our guns, our religion, our patriotism, our freedom, our belief in the superiority of our way of life. It negates everything they believe in. And it, and we, cannot be allowed to succeed or fail on its/our own merits. Nothing can. Ever.

Jeez, I just summed up seven years of blogging in one paragraph, at two in the morning.

I repeat - if Obama wins, I will give him the respect that all the Leftist sycophants gave President Bush for the last eight years. That is: zero.

More: and I'm about to puke.

Now, we have people crawling over his tax records, his voter registration, his professional licensing, and whatever else they can find in the public record. Someone has linked him to the long-deceased Charles Keating, suggesting that somehow Obama managed to pick a McCain plant out of a ropeline full of people by accident. How much longer before a certain blogger at The Atlantic demands a paternity test to see if Joe the Plumber fathered Sarah Palin’s baby — or Bristol’s, for that matter?

There is a stench of desperation surrounding this, as if they sense defeat coming from a moment of honesty from Obama about his real intentions to institute a regime of redistribution. They want to discredit the man who only asked the question as if he’s some political operative who magically forced Obama to sound … well, a little like a Marxist. Why? They want to distract people from Obama’s answer by sliming the man Obama picked at random to ask a question.

I swear to you, if Obama wins I guarantee you will see this kind of behavior being acted out against all of Obama's enemies. And since Obama is a hard core Marxist, anyone who wants to think for themself and live without government interference is Obama's enemy. This also shows YET AGAIN just how hyper-partisan and biased the MSM has become. They don't have a shred of credibility left. They're going after a friggin' PLUMBER, but they won't go after Bill Ayers, Jeremiah Wright (I refuse to call any racist "Reverend"), Obama's connections to Tony Rezko, and on and on and on... THEY MUST PROTECT THEIR LORD AND MESSIAH!

Economics

she haz dem.

In days of old, the company you worked for put money in a retirement plan. It was a benefit, not something you paid for directly. It meant that when you retired you would start receiving benefits, similar to Social Security. The difference, of course, was that the retirement program was actually funded, not filled with IOUs. If a company ran their retirement plan in the same way the government runs Social Security, they’d have been arrested for fraud.

Few companies still do that and the idea that your retirement money is something you can touch is a relatively new idea. Companies today have 401K programs where you are “allowed” (by tax code) to put a percentage of your earnings into an account pre-tax, that you generally can’t touch while still employed. You would have to quit to have access to the money. The money is not taxed. Some companies have matching plans, and you get a higher percentage of matching funds, the longer you’re with the company. If you do leave that job and withdraw money from your retirement account, you are taxed on it, but you also pay a 10% penalty for using your own money.

I think all of this is a huge scam and scandal. The reason I believe that is because what most of us earn in interest on our 401Ks doesn’t exceed what we pay in mortgage interest. We might be earning 5% in interest income, but we’re paying more than that interest amount on our mortgages, so it is net loss. The tax code nonsense gives us the illusion that we’re ahead, but in real dollars, we’re not.

The amount of money we pay in mortgage interest is astounding.


I'm one of the lucky ones. My father understands economics, in a way that Mrs. du Toit does, but not too many of our fellow Americans do. And he beat into my head, as I was buying this house, "PAY IT OFF EARLY! ALWAYS SEND IN AN EXTRA CHECK! THE MONEY YOU SAVE IN INTEREST IS UNGODLY!" So I made sure that there was no penalty for early payment in the contract, and I'll be sending damn near everything I can in a second check every month.

Hopefully, by the time I leave we'll have a big chunk of principal paid off. Enough so that when we sell it, we have a decent down-payment on another house. That's the only crappy part about buying this house. I do like the area. I love the house. But the military is the military, and I'm going to be moving in roughly six years. So I have to keep that in mind.

Still - The more I pay in principal over the years, the more I get to keep when I sell the house later. Anyways, go read.

The Last Debate

Malkin thinks McCain won.

So does the Real King of France.

Gateway Pundit has a different tack.

What say you?

My opinion? It was almost a tie. But Obama's constant smirk has got to grate on a few people.

Doing the job the MSM won't do

Since the MSM is too busy washing Obama down with their tongues, so-called amateurs are picking up the slack. I say "so called", because they're obviously more competent than the MSM, seeing has how they're doing the job the MSM refuses to do.

Here’s the stench: An entire houseful of young, non-Ohioan Democrat activists have used the Brownlee Avenue address to register themselves to vote in the Buckeye State and secure absentee ballots under extremely shady circumstances — all while mobilizing a large effort to register thousands of others for absentee and early voting. The activists are leaders of a group called “Vote From Home ‘08.” The group is self-identified as having “extensive experience with political organizing, election administration, and Democratic politics.” They were hailed as the “Justice League” by a Daily Kos blogger. Their Facebook page brags: “Want to turn the Presidential election blue in a key swing state? Vote from Home is a political organization that was founded by a team of young people for the purpose of assisting, aiding, and tracking voters to elect progressive candidates to the White House. Encouraged by the excitement of the 2008 elections and the movement around the Democratic candidates, Vote From Home will be in Ohio seeking to deliver 10,000 votes to Democratic candidates statewide.”
How close was the election in Ohio in 2004? I guess the Democrat American Communist Party is going to make sure it never gets that close again. By stuffing the ballot box. Is there any facet of America that the Left won't destroy in their quest for power? I guess not. To the Left, power is the only thing that counts, and anything else just gets tossed aside like trash. Morals, ideals, the US Constitution, thrown out.

I'm coming to the opinion that if you get caught committing vote fraud, you should be put into a stockade, where you'll be pelted with rocks and sticks, right before you're put in front of a firing squad.

I can't believe they would be this obvious

But I guess I underestimate their love and devotion for their Lord and Messiah.

My 8th grade son is in an advanced English class at a public middle school here in Racine, Wisconsin. I just found out that my son's new (copyright 2008) Wisconsin - McDougal Littell Literature book has 15 pages covering Barack Obama.

I was shocked - No John McCain, no Hillary Clinton, no George Bush - Just Barack Obama. I'm wondering how it is that Obama's story gets put into an 8th grade literature book? It would be one thing, if it was just the tidbit about his boyhood days, but 15 pages, and they talk about his "Life of Service". Honestly, what has Obama really done to be included in this book? Not only that, but on page 847 there is a photo of Obama at the 2004 Democratic Convention with at least 8 Obama signs in the background! Front & center is an www.obama2004.com sign.
Whoever was in charge of that should be tarred and feathered. I knew that the National Educators Association was a hard-left, Democrat American Communist Party supporting group, but this is so flat out blatant that it makes my jaw drop.

Between this, and the Media giving Obama a tongue bath every time he makes a TV appearance, I don't think I recognize half of this country anymore.

They try to hide it with words

But Obama is a friggin' communist. Period. And the sad part is that a lot of folks in the USA don't look at that as a bad thing.



Whatever. I'm wondering just how long it would take into the Obama Presidency before this country no longer exists as a free democracy.

Good advice for McCain

And my quote of the day:

You don't win by covering up bullshit with false comity. You win by calling the bullshit.

I don't care how much you "reached across the aisle", Jonny Boy, the Democrats American Communist Party only sees that as weakness, and they'll stab you in the back the first chance they get. They don't care about integrity, or bi-partisanship. They only care about power, and who holds it.

Ahem...

Yours truly, from 2006.

So while we all admit that Foley should be strung up by his shriveled nutsack and beaten to death, if a Dimocrat should try to make a big deal of this in front of you, please remind them that the Republicans kick the paedophiles out of Congress. The Dimocrats protect their paedophiles and keep them in Congress, as proven by Gerry Studds and Barney Frank. So ask them which party they support. The party of punishing paedophiles, or the party of proudly having paedophiles represent them in congress?

The conservatives deal with their bad apples. We dealt with Trent Lott. We'll deal with Foley. It's part of being an adult and fixing problems. The Dimocrats refuse to deal with any problems they have. They deny the problem, blame someone else, and then pray that the whole mess just blows over so that they don't have to change anything, which is why the Dimocrats have a Grand Kleagle of the KKK and a drunken murdering lush as congresscritters.

Ahem....

West Palm Beach Congressman Tim Mahoney (D-FL), whose predecessor resigned in the wake of a sex scandal, agreed to a $121,000 payment to a former mistress who worked on his staff and was threatening to sue him, according to current and former members of his staff who have been briefed on the settlement, which involved Mahoney and his campaign committee.

(.....)

Senior Democratic leaders in the House of Representatives, including Rep. Rahm Emanuel (D-IL), the chair of the Democratic Caucus, have been working with Mahoney to keep the matter from hurting his re-election campaign, the Mahoney staffers said.
When you are part of a political philosophy that eschews silly things like morals and standards, that opens up the window to all kinds of behavior, doesn't it? And since you don't give a shit about anything but yourself, you don't even have to feel bad about cheating on your wife! Morals? Standards? Those are for some other schlub, not the anointed of the Democrat American Communist Party!

I swear.... it's too damn predictable some days. Gateway Pundit has more.

I wish that I could say

That I'm not like this guy who emailed Instapundit.

This is surely small of me, but if Obama wins, I plan on giving him as much of a chance as the Democrats gave George Bush. I will gleefully forward every paranoid anti-Obama rumor that I see, along with YouTube footage of his verbal missteps. I will laugh and email heinous anti-Obama photoshop jobs, and maybe even learn photoshop myself to create some. I'll buy anti-Obama books, and maybe even a "Not My President" t-shirt. I'm sure that the mainstream bookstores won't carry them, but I'll be on the lookout for anti-Obama calendars and stuff like that. I will not wish America harm, and if the country is hurt (economically, militarily, or diplomatically) I will truly mourn. But i will also take some solace that it occurred under Obama's watch, and will find every reason to blame him personally and fan the flames.

But you know what? I am like that guy. I used to be able to have a conversation about politics with people who have different views. Right now I can think of one person who I'm still able to speak to about politics that isn't in convergence with my viewpoint.

I don't remember who first named me "Raging Dave", but it was back on Right-Thinking from the Left Coast. I had finally had enough. Enough of people calling me a Nazi, reTHUGlican, brownshirt, jackbooted goose-stepping myrmidon, whatever. I had enough of people who refused to deal with logic in any form and went straight for the personal destruction. You want to have your life changed? Have someone call you a baby-killer for your military service. If I supported the war but hadn't served, I was a chickenhawk. If I supported the war and I was in the military, I was a blood-thirsty murderer. I had an idiot email me about that, which I posed about here.

I want folks to go read that post. THAT is what we're up against. THAT is what we're dealing with. Total lunacy. Unhinged hatred, seething in a cauldron of toxic insanity.

So no, I'm not going to be nice if McCain loses. I may end up putting a billboard on my roof, shouting Obama's failures to the world. I don't really care at this point. Obama in the Oval Office would be tantamount to putting a temper-tantrum throwing toddler at the helm. A pants-shitting, red in the face screaming three-year old in damn near every sense of the word. THAT is who would be in control.

And I won't give him the respect I give a crack-whore. Because he's lower than a crack-whore.

So I know exactly where Instapundit's emailer is coming from. I know what he's feeling. And I'm right on board with him.

I've seen this point made

At a few places. Drumwaster's for example:

If Barack Obama were looking for a job with a Defense Contractor, he wouldn’t be able to do so. Why? He would fail the Background Investigation because of his relationships with people identified as terrorists or terrorist supporters. Yet he is quite close to being the man who gets to grant those clearances to others.

Think about it.

Dick, guest-blogging at Neanderpundit:

When I served nuclear duty as a B-Man (the NCO who had the other two numbers to launch the 440 kiloton thermonuclear missiles, *which required a CTSA security clearance), if I would have written in Williams Ayers as an acquaintance, even in passing, I would have never of been cleared, and probably been jailed.

Yet 50% of the morons in this country want to give that fucking terrorist the football.

Would somebody please tell me what’s wrong with this picture?

Obama wouldn't qualify for a Secret clearance in the military. Period. Hell, I doubt that he could obtain a Confidential clearance. But thanks to his legions of Marxist goons, he's about to be voted into the top intelligence spot in the USA. And to the Left, that's a feature not a bug.

What a shock

Economists are as negative on the Obama tax plan as I am. Maybe it's because the people who know how the economy works recognize socialism when they see it.

If McCain had any balls left....

He'd be buying these ads and running them all over the country.

And let me make myself clear. I think that McCain used to have big brass balls. You don't survive what he did without 'em. But too many years in the Republican Stupid Party seems to have castrated him. He's pulling punches that he should be letting fly. Because if McCain plays nice against a Marxist like Obama, he's going to lose. And then we'll have a Communist in the White House with a Communist controlled Congress.

And at that point, we are fucked to the tenth power.

You want proof that the Republican Stupid Party is through? Done? Finished as a major political movement?

Because they're not the ones making the ads I linked to. They should be. Or they at least should be airing them on as many TV stations as possible. But no, the Stupid Party is curling up, pissing down their legs and whining "PLEASE DON'T HIT ME! MAKE THE BAD MAN STOP!" Whatever. The Stupid Party is losing members like an oak tree loses leaves in the fall, and they won't stop losing members until a conservative pulls the party back to sanity.

ACORNholes' "votes" count but not our soldiers?


While Barack Hussein Obama continues to spew MainStreamMedia enabled lies about his Brownshirted ACORNholes' voter fraud and conspiratorial conduct to bully financial lenders into Affirmative Action suicide, we should remember that ACORN supports illegal immigrants too:
HUD Mum on Illegal Mortgages
A retired agent from Immigration and Customs Enforcement says that five million illegal immigrants nationwide may hold home mortgages.

While Barack Hussein Obama promises to include his Brownshirted ACORNholes' in his administration, via Allahpundit :
Video: The obligatory “Obama says ACORN will help set his agenda, sort of” clip
It is true that Deepak Bhargava, the current executive director of CCC, used to work as ACORN’s legislative director, but unless I missed something, I don’t even see the group listed as an official CCC partner.
In other words, The One’s promising community organizers generally that they’ll play a role in shaping his policies. Anyone surprised? Remember, this is a guy whose supporters use this part of his CV to compare him to Jesus.

In spite of the fact that ACORN is a Marxist organized crime syndicate:
The ACORN Effect: A massive fraud ...
Barack Obama's favorite left-wing community organizing group -- is finally getting the scrutiny from law enforcement it deserves.
...

ACORN, with "franchises" in 110 cities, has been accused of submitting inaccurate or fraudulent voter registrations in at least nine states, including Ohio and Pennsylvania. Perjury and fraud charges are being weighed in Allegheny County.
In 2006, ACORN signed a consent decree with Washington state agreeing to refrain from improper voter registration activities or face criminal prosecution.
It's no secret who benefits most from the 1.3 million new voters ACORN has recently registered in 21 states, including Pennsylvania. Expanding voter turnout is key to Democrats electing Mr. Obama, who in the 1990s showered ACORN's Chicago office with public-private funding he controlled and provided with personal-leadership training.
But ACORN repeatedly has shown it can't be trusted. Are its new voters real or are they frauds? Are they ghosts using names of dead people or former Dallas Cowboys players? Are they duplicates of real voters?
Every fraudulent vote cancels out a real citizen's vote. How is that not disenfranchisement? And how is it the (D)emocrats are still suppressing the votes of our military?
Many of U.S. soldiers' overseas ballots go uncounted
The number of absentee military ballots applied for that ultimately get counted is consistently low. In the last federal election, only about 30 percent of overseas military ballots were tallied, according to data from the federal Election Assistance Commission, which monitors election problems, and the Pew Center on the States.

Gonna go watch some football.

And I probably won't be back until late. So, if you REALLY need your blogage, might I suggest the blogroll over to the right?

Am I surprised?

Nope. There's a reason I call them the American Communist Party.
