"though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing. Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up, Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not its own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil; Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth"
"if by supporting the rights of mankind... I shall contribute to save from the agonies of death one unfortunate victim of tyranny, or of ignorance, equally fatal, his blessing and tears of transport will be a sufficient consolation to me for the contempt of all mankind."-Marchese di Beccaria
As much as it pains me to say it, Ronald Reagan deserves some of the blame for this notion that our individual successes and failures are wholly contingent upon the whim of the guy in the Oval Office. He was the one who popularized “Are you better off now than you were four years ago?” to such devastating effect against Jimmy Carter. Since then, Democrats have made their own use of this crude reductionism. It has always struck me as a secular form of medieval thinking. My crops will not prosper unless the high priest wills it so.
At least Reagan argued that the economy would prosper if he were allowed to liberate it from the scheming of self-styled experts. Clinton ran out in front of a parade of free-market successes and, like Ferris Bueller, acted as if he was leading the parade.
I am trying to figure out how that’s wrong. It’s 100% true. He was saying just because of how a baby is conceived, doesn’t mean it should be killed. For people who say a lot of rapes end in pregnancies, why don’t they somehow make the leap that rape can be a form of conception, just like, you know, all other sex?
HOW DARE HE REPEAT BIOLOGICAL FACT!!! THAT’S WORSE THAN REPEATING MATH!!!~
Obama, by the structure of the sentence, could be referring to businesses themselves not having built the roads ‘by themselves’. And I am inclined to believe that is how Obama meant it and the knee jerk crowd has been strapping on the kickinator all this time to my painful annoyance.
Of course Obama’s point is still basically the same collectivist drivel anyway. But you don’t have the high ground to point that out if you can’t see how it can be read differently.
Communist mother met Communist father in Russian language class at the height of the Cold War. Polygamist father left to marry another woman without divorcing his mom. She talked him up to her son. He was a radical ‘African Socialist’. Obama learned the story of the abuse of his grandfather at the hands of British colonialism. Likely a key reason he became an ‘anti-colonialist’. Obama’s mom got with Obama’s step dad, who she left because he was pro-America. She sent young Berry to be raised by his grandparents with the particular mentor in Frank Marshall Davis, Card Carrying Communist. Many of Davis’s words can be found in Obama’s campaign, hope and change for instance. It is because of Frank that Obama went to Chicago. In college by the words in his own Autobiography:
"To avoid being mistaken for a sellout, I chose my friends carefully. The more politically active black students. The foreign students. The Chicanos. The Marxist professors and structural feminists and punk-rock performance poets. We smoked cigarettes and wore leather jackets. At night, in the dorms, we discussed necolonialism, Franz Fanon, Eurocentrism, and patriarchy. When we ground out our cigarettes in the hallway carpet or set our stereos so loud that the walls began to shake, we were resisting bourgeois society’s stifling constraints. "
Barack sites Rev. Jeremiah Wright as the reason for his ‘conversion’. Obama’s church and preacher teaches ‘black liberation theology’, and ‘collective salvation’; a Marxian strain of religion born of the necessity for communists to infiltrate the church in order to gain power in south America. James Cone brought this ideology back to America, Rev. Wright was one of his disciples. His new preacher and advisor Jim Wallis is of the exact same ilk, though a little lighter on the Conspiracy Theory rants against America.
The vast majority of this I already knew in 2008. And of course I never ‘believed’ in the man, knowing his history, I had a brief and fleeting hope that his history did not define him.
And of course his record reflects his history, there is no turning point to be found.
As senator he supported the bailouts, as President he went through with the ‘stimulus’ he nationalized GM, and lied about the debt being paid back. There was Obamacare, he is on record as being for a single payer system, the author of Obamacare from SEIU, admits “its not a Trojan horse [for single payer] its just right their”, Obama lied about that. Obama signed the Financial bill which creates unelected unaccountable boards who pic those corps that are ‘too big to fail’ effectually institutionalizing bail outs. He’s ruled by executive order after himself admitting it would be unconstitutional. He’s done orders allowing the assassination or indefinite detention of US Citizens. Under his watch Drones have been brought into use over American soil, QE2 the invisible tax has been implemented, Student Loans have been nationalized, The borders left wide open with escalating violence and drug cartels cooperating with Hezbollah, and he’s lied about there being a ‘secure border’, he’s promoted and invited into the white house the Muslim Brotherhood, has recently undone Clinton’s welfare reforms, and is working towards unilateral nuclear disarmament. He’s willing to negotiate with some dictators while US friendly ones he’ll side with Al Qaeda against. By the very govt. numbers Obamanomics has failed, and made things much worse.
GLENN BECK Keynote Speech at FreePAC 2012
“Everything he’s done is clean as a whistle. He’s never not only broken any law, he’s never done anything wrong? He’s the perfect father, the perfect husband, the perfect American. And all they do is trash the guy. And it’s impossible for me to believe they would have said the same things about a Walter Mondale or a Jimmy Carter or a Bill Clinton. There’s an ethnic piece to this. It’s very hard to nail it down because they always cover it in ideology. But I’ve never heard anybody in this country call its opponent regularly anti-American or non-American.”
Chris Matthews, Living Muppet
Proven lies about Romney, today. Doing drugs in highschool, [committing FELONIES, admitted to in his own book]. Bragging on putting out cigarettes in people’s carpet so as to protest ‘bourgeois society’. He rejected being friends with a little fat black girl as a kid because of peer pressure.
The guy’s a bag of dirt, just by his unideological actions. And when you take any kind of conservative stand, he’s that much worse. He was only elected to the senate by blackmail in the first place!, then there’s Ruling by executive order, nationalizing GM, & Student Loans, institutionalizing ‘too big to fail’ in the ‘financial bill’, okaying the concepts of assassinating US Citizens at home and abroad, bringing drones into local use, ObamaCare, Stimulus, Bailouts, QE2, who can keep track of it all? HOLY S, MAN, CLINTON AT LEAST REFORMED WELFARE, BUT OBAMA’S UNDOING THAT!!! Buuut Obama is continuing a Clintonian past time, of UNILATERAL AMERICAN DISARMAMENT while expanding ‘the war on terror’ and opening the white house to the Muslim Brotherhood, godfather organization to half the islamo-fascist terrorist cells anyone’s ever heard of…
And the only defense left of em is muppet level stupidity, lying, and the race card.
