This was posted by a friend on Facebook. Even though it may not be exactly “scientific”, I enjoyed the discussion. Just thought I would share it here for anyone who might get a kick out of it.
That really hip dude, Barack Hussein Obama, is a foreign policy genius through and through. And if he needs help, good old Uncle Joe Biden (a buffoon with little to no foreign policy experience) can step right in and save the day! We should be so lucky … just ask Chris Matthews (who get a shiver up his leg whenever Obama opens his mouth) or Piers Morgan (who seems to forget that America fought a revolution to escape the kinds of aristocratic nonsense he espouses)!
However, for those of us who have to live in the real world, Obama’s a foreign policy (or lack there of) has been disastrous. His administration is totally and completely incompetent.
As my brother posted on Facebook yesterday, Obama and his socialist minions do seem to confuse “sound bytes” with a coherent and functional foreign policy. And because of this, we are now indeed facing a major crisis on several different fronts:
- The Middle East: Obama has no plan, just sound bytes celebrating the “Arab Spring“, oh yeah … and giving the Arab Brotherhood $250 million, Abrams tanks, and 20 F16s .
- North Korea and Iran: Again … no plan, no action (other then sending Dennis Rodman?), no policy position … just more sound bytes about getting rid of a missile defense system that Obama now apparently realizes we do need after all.
- Diplomacy: So we demand respect as a nation state … but we don’t protect our embassies, protect or seek justice for our murdered ambassadors, or show any intent to preserve our military capability. If I were Deborah K. Jones, I would think twice about taking that new opening as Ambassador to Libya …
- Cyber warfare: Again, no strategic plan! However, we do seem to have a great many “off the top of the head” sound bytes going back to about 2009. But has Obama’s administration implemented any of what is state in their sound bytes? Not so you’d notice!
- What about Obama’s other foreign policy “plan?” They seem to include:
- Alienate Israel
- Abuse our relationship with the UK
- Become a Chinese satellite state
- Become bogged down in endless civil wars on the African continent
- Ignore mutually beneficial economic deals with our neighbor Canada
- Murdering American border agents and hundreds Mexican citizens by “Fast and Furiously” providing “assault weapons” to the Mexican drug cartels through the ATF in an effort to create a scandal they could use to justify national gun registration and/or confiscation. Too bad they got caught … ain’t “Executive Privilege” a wonderful thang!
It really should not come as a shock! We re-elected a “sycophantic demagogue” and his “court Jester” (who was brought onboard for his supposed “Foreign Policy” expertise) as president and vice-president. The real truth is that good old uncle Joe Biden doesn’t have a clue about foreign policy and is … fundamentally … an idiot! So, we are left with “the demagogue” to set policy.
Maybe Hillary Clinton actually has a clue (I kind of doubt it … but according to my brother’s post, some Washington DC insiders insist it is so), … but she has largely been ignored. And … she was the Secretary of State during the whole tragic Benghazi security fiasco and coverup stupidity … and we have seen how well this group works together to cover each others ineptness.
And now … Democrats are saying the dream ticket for 2016 is Hillary Clinton and Michelle Obama? God help us all!!

Tell me … how many of you really believe the government can keep you safe? How many of you will be assigned your own personal security team? Barack Obama, Diane Feinstein, Joe Biden, John Kerry, Harry Reid, and Nancy Pelosi all travel with bodyguards armed with … “gasp” … guns! Why is it ok for them to have the protection firearms provide … but not you? Are their lives more valuable to them than yours is to you? Will the country not survive without them … so therefore, they are the privileged few … the only ones who deserve to be protected?
Or … maybe in their eyes, we are not all created equal in the eyes of the Lord.
Like glorified Snake Oil salesman, Obama and his administration want to sell you the idea that only the government can keep you free and safe. But to Obama and his big-government socialist cronies, the truth hidden behind all the trappings is that to them, it is simply about obedience to their laws (legal or otherwise) and to your betters … a benevolent dictatorship! This is kind of funny in a way because Obama runs one of the most lawless administrations in the history of our country.
The vigorously renewed liberal elite’s assault on the 2nd Amendment is being wrapped in the guise of protecting the American people from criminals and is capitalizing on the raw emotions brought on by recent shooting tragedies such the two that occurred in Aurora, Co and Newtown, CT. These were tragic events and I do not in any way belittle them. My heartfelt sympathy goes out to the victims and their families. However, the highly emotional context of this situation makes people very susceptible to government-sponsored knee-jerk reactions and quick fixes like blaming and banning the gun; while ignoring the shooters, their history, mental illness, etc. They also ignore the fact that most of these shooters obtained their weapons illegally! In the minds those evil or mentally ill in our society who murder the innocents among us; obedience to gun laws is the very last of their thoughts.
Therefore, passing laws that take away the ability of law-abiding Americans to protect themselves against criminals is not the right answer, the smart answer, or the Constitutional answer. The hard reality is that, because the federal government refuses to do its job of protecting its citizens along our southern border, we have ranchers in Texas, New Mexico, California, and Arizona fighting pitched battles with Mexican Cartel drug runners and human traffickers. Obama’s administration even uses the sequestration, which is in reality a very, very minor cut in the growth of government spending, as a politically expedient excuse to cut funding for Border Patrol Agents. The real “irony” is that the drug runners and human traffickers are heavily armed with “assault weapons” provided by Obama, Eric Holder, and the ATF during operation “Fast and Furious!” So what is the solution according to Obama and the liberal elites? Simple … disarm the ranchers! Common sense would tell you that the venerable old double-barrelled shotgun suggested by good old Uncle Joe “gun-expert” Biden would be wholly inadequate to the task these ranchers are left on their own by the Anointed One to complete. No, the real truth is, that for Obama and the ruling liberal elites, banning guns is the politically expedient answer.
The truth is that, historically, all governments have feared individual freedom. God gave us freedom (the Right to Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness) and the government systematically tries to take it away! I have always subscribed to the theory that all government is evil, and that the American form of democratic government is just the least evil form. The Founding Fathers knew that for this new Nation to survive, it needed a means to control its destiny, protect its citizens, and protect its interests. It needed a government of some form. They worked hard to design a government with a system of checks and balances to keep the government from getting to big and enslaving its citizens. Was it a perfect government? No! Just the best one going! But the Founding Fathers also understood that, by its very nature, government negates freedom and liberty; and that the bigger it gets … the more freedom it negates. That is why George Washington said that government is not reason or eloquence … it is force. And, that if the government gets its way, it would have a monopoly on force!
However, individual freedom was the essential key that made America the unique, prosperous, and wonderful experiment it was. It was this idea; that personal freedom comes as a gift from God and thereby comes first … that made American special. This very same idea led to the end of slavery, to civil rights, and to modern ideas of equality for all people … disregarding race, gender, age, ethnicity, religion, creed, or sexual preference! Again … is it perfect? No! Did it take time? Yes! But it happened and it continues to improve! But, too many people have such short memories! These ideas did not come from government … they came from “We the People!” Americans usually had to fight the government to change the status quo! Democrats fought hard to keep slavery intact! Democrats fought hard against civil rights legislation! A Republican even had to call out the Nation Guard to see civil rights legislation enforced. As Ronald Reagan said, government is not the solution … it is the problem!
To those of us who believe in the U.S. Constitution, this gun-debate is not about the law (or even about a new bunch of gun laws that good old Uncle Joe Biden say the government has no time to enforce anyway). To those of us who believe in the U.S. Constitution, this debate is about personal liberty and personal responsibility in a free society. And the real, ugly truth that Obama and liberal/socialist elites do not want Americans to know is that … it is the exercise of one specific personal freedom; the freedom to defend yourself and those you love when the police cannot and the government will not, and the freedom to use weapons to repel tyrants if they take over our government …that Obama, his big-government socialist thugs, and their doting Hollywood elitist buddies fear the most! Do you ever stop and wonder why communist dictators and fascist tyrants such as Fidel Castro or Hugo Chavez are so attractive to liberal elites such Jack Nicholson, Stephen Spielberg, Sean Penn, Danny Glover, Kevin Costner, Susan Sarandon, Oliver Stone, Chevy Chase, Courtney Love, and Harry Belafonte? And, that just perhaps, it is the same reason they are so equally enamored with Barack Obama?
Simply put, government always compels, restricts, and takes away. Thomas Jefferson understood that when he wrote in the Declaration of Independence that “We are endowed by our Creator with certain inalienable rights.” According to Jefferson, the only reason the Founding Fathers created a “federal” government was to protect these same rights, and then, as a further protection … they hammered out the U.S. Constitution to keep the federal government contained. But there have always been those opposed to this idea. There are always those who like to rule those around them … and they often buy power by promising those who prefer, or are at least willing, to be ruled that they will take care of them with entitlements. Vote for me and I will give you a house, food stamps, free government schools, a free cellphone, free lunch, free government television programing, a free chicken in every pot, free this, free that. I ask you … what will happen when the government runs out of its “free Obama money,” and begins to implement austerity measures such as we saw in Greece and some European countries? Riots, looting, violence, crime! I will keep my guns thank you!
Those in the ant-gun crowd cannot point to a single case when restricting the freedoms of law-abiding citizens has stopped criminals, the mentally ill, or the down-right-evil from killing innocent people. Criminals by their very nature do not obey laws, and the mentally deranged do not recognize any external restraints on their own behavior because they cannot distinguish between right and wrong; and cannot be reasonably expected to do so in the future either! Hence, the “not guilty by reason of insanity” plea!
On the other hand, the American Revolution was successful in great part due to the fact that Americans were armed and did not fear the use of weapons. I am very sure King George III later wished he had stripped the colonists of the means to defend themselves. Had King George III and his Parliament passed and enforced the kinds of laws Obama, Hillary Clinton, Diane Feinstein, and a few others want to enact; laws that told them who among us owned guns, that limited the capacity of those guns, and limited the amount of ammunition one could possess … our Founding Fathers could and would have been hanged for treason! One of the true stories of the American Revolution which is not taught in our public schools is that the colonists actually had superior firepower to the Kings forces. British soldiers carried the standard issue smooth-bore musket, which propelled a lead ball (or several of them) less than 100 yards from the shooter with very little accuracy. The colonists, however, had the long gun(sometimes known as the “Kentucky” or “Tennessee” Long Rifle) which propelled a single lead ball up to 200 yards (about 2 times farther than the British soldier could shoot) and with much greater accuracy. It is no wonder that by 1781, King George III had lost enough men and money to surrender!
During World War II, the American federal government constantly worried about a Japanese invasion of the West Coast. This impart led to the successful attack at Pearl Harbor. Politicians would not listen to front line commanders, and worried about their own safety! When, after the war was over, Japanese Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto was asked why Japan never invaded the U.S. He replied that they had determined it would be a suicidal attempt saying,” You cannot invade the mainland United States. There would be a rifle behind every blade of grass.” I always wondered why anyone in their right mind would be for gun bans and confiscation … seeing it was such a historic deterrent to the invasion of the United States!
And … a great many Americans are alive today because they had the means to protect themselves from murders, rapists, home invaders, etc. Their stories are out there to! You just never hear about them from the Obama lap-dog media!
The real lesson in all of this is that a free people cannot remain free very long by permitting the government to take their freedoms away … even when it is a temporary, popularly elected government that can later be unelected. Simply stated, the anti-American liberty faction, composed of Obama, his big government thugs, rich liberal/socialists, Hollywood elites, and their entitlement addicted voting block … want your guns! Of course, Gabby Gifford’s husband and other liberal elites get to keep theirs!
Obama and his administration are deceptively trying to present this as some kind of benevlent big government action designed to protect the many law-abiding citizens from the few violent criminals by taking away the rights of the many law-abiding citizens (Does anyone else see the apparent flaw in this logic … or is it just me?). Obama will use any means, U.S. Constitution be damned, to create burdensome and intrusive registration laws, laws that restrict the capacity of weapons and quantity, and quality of ammunition, and their latest trick … laws that impose financial liability on law-abiding gun manufacturers and sellers for the criminal behavior of a few users to make gun ownership so hard and so burdensome, that law-abiding gun owners will simply roll over and give up.
What Barack Obama, like King George III, does not understand is that the more you try to restrict freedom … the more you create the desire for it in. The more you tax an already overly taxed citizenry, the more resentment grows. This is what caused the first American Revolution. Hopefully, history will not repeat itself as it so often does. But then, perhaps this is why the Department of Homeland Security is so busily buying 1.6 billion bullets and 2,700 light-armored tanks!

I thought this was funny and had to share! Just a little humor from The People’s Cube:
According to unnamed reliable sources, the White House is set to announce the formation of the Federal Bureau of “Quotations” to oversee media citations of all official White House announcements and denials of previous announcements.
In future, all media citations must fit within strictly defined classifications: unnamed, well-placed, unnamed well-placed, un-quoted, official, unofficial, official unnamed, official un-quoted, official well-placed, reliable, unnamed reliable, well-placed reliable, official unnamed well-placed, and unofficial un-quoted unnamed well-placed reliable.
The Federal Bureau of “Quotations” has set up a website to help the media and the reading public understand what the new classifications mean. An official unnamed well-placed reliable source said the site will be user-friendly, featuring a cute feline mascot named Miss Information to lead readers through the many details.
An unnamed well-placed un-quoted official didn’t clarify whether, when spoken, the new entity should be pronounced as “Bureau of quote Quotations unquote” or simply stated as “Bureau of Quotations” with air quotes given at the appropriate moment. A second well-placed reliable source claimed air quotes should not be used so as not to offend the eye-hand-coordination-challenged.
When contacted, a third unofficial un-quoted unnamed well-placed reliable source denied everything, but confirmed multiple job openings at the Bureau’s community-based Quotations Correctional facilities to help maintain safe, cost-efficient, and secure environment for media professionals in need of self-improvement opportunities offered to them by dedicated Quotations Correctional Officers.
A catchy new phrase I heard Hallerin Hilton Hill use on the radio this morning … “Lap-dogs don’t hunt!” I like it. It fits so nicely in the discussion of today’s political nonsense! A fine example of this is the drive-by American news media. They don’t “hunt” for facts and report “real” news. They simply sit in Obama’s lap and feed us the “approved” left-wing spin lines as news headlines! This is how $1 trillion in new taxes gets reported by Politico as $1 trillion in new revenue! Revenue implies some kind of sales. Exactly what is the Obama administration selling us? When the federal government takes more of the money I earned (either directly or an indirectly) and spends it the way that they see fit; that is not “revenue” … that is a tax. I am not opposed to paying my “fair share” … but the federal government wastes way to much of it. These are the same folks who are spending $1.5 million to fund a study to see why so many lesbians are fat! Well, just maybe … it is because they eat too much! Before the Obama administration raises taxes on me … they better clean up their spending habits! I do not make over $250,000 per year, but my taxes have already gone up!
Left-wing liberals want us all to become good little lap-dogs. Liberal educators love to pay lip service to the idea of developing “critical thinking skills” in our young students today. It sounds so catchy and impressive when they use it to try and persuade us … doesn’t it? But what is the real truth? Why do you need critical thinking skills? Well, I would say,”to view the choices around you, weigh the pros and cons, and then make an intelligent decision based on that information.” This would, however, imply that you do not need a “law” or a “ban” to force you to make the right choice. You make the choice freely of your own volition … and then … you accept the ramifications of that choice! That is “critical thinking” and that is “freedom.”
If our “liberal educators” actually tought “critical thinking skills” there would be no need for laws banning “big gulp” soft drinks or ear buds. Nanny Bloomberg, like Barack Obama, thinks he knows what’s best for you! So, in his mind … you really and truly do not need critical thinking skills at all; and by extension … freedom of choice should, therefore, be benevolently taken away! Folks, this is … simply put … totalitarianism!! Without choices … there is no Freedom!
They say one thing publicly … but behind closed doors, they really do something else! Obama does this repeatedly … over and over … ad nauseum! Cool Aid drinkers don’t care about it! Low knowledge voters don’t know about it! Liberal elitists embrace it!
Here is a PRIME EXAMPLE: Publicly … liberals loudly proclaim for all to hear,”Our children need to develop critical thinking skills!” This gets them elected! But once they are in office you actually get,”Americans aren’t smart enough to make decisions for themselves … so we are banning “64-0unce soda pops, ear buds, and magazines that hold over 8 rounds!” Folks, if someone hands you a 55-gallon diet coke and a straw … and you actually drink it … you deserve exactly what you get … and you do not then, now, or ever … have the right to take away my freedom of choice because you drank it!
I think this is also why the NEA has led the charge in dumbing down our educational system while fighting tooth and nail against charter schools, school vouchers programs, home schooling, or anything that would allow parents to get their children out of their left-wing brainwashing mills and into a real school where “critical thinking” is actually taught! You know, a school where it is not illegal to say the Pledge of Allegiance, sing the National Anthem, or teach evolution while at the same time … horror of horrors … mention God!! A school where reading, writing, and arithmetic take a little more precedence than socialist brainwashing, exploring alternative life-styles, providing morning-after pills, or learning the proper technique for putting a condom on a banana!
Nanny Bloomberg intends to spend lots of time fighting the ruling that halted his “soda pop” ban; because after all, New York City has no other really pressing concerns. It is much more important to waste a lot of taxpayer money on “soda pop” judicial proceedings, than to spend more time trying to end serious problems like, oh, say, gangs, rapes, drugs, and violence in New York City! Oh Wait … my bad … New York City doesn’t have THOSE problems because they have those really strict gun laws! I forgot!! Anyway, we should a be good little “lap-dogs” and live our lives according to Bloomberg’s, or Obama’s, commands. And maybe Bloomberg can really do some good for New Yorker’s … he could ban rape!
Yes indeed! Good little lap-dogs dote so on their masters,! They are so happy with the little scraps of food they receive from the table, and squirm with pure glee when they receive that little “pat on the head.” We should all be good little lap dogs … because good little lap-dogs would never wonder:
- Why the U.S. Marines have no money for training because of Sequestration, but the Dept of Homeland Security has an open purchase order for 1.6 billion rounds of ammunition!
- Why the White House is closed to school children’s tours, but Obama can sell presidential access for $500,000 a visit?
- Why the administration can spend $1.5 million of my tax dollars to “learn” why so many lesbians are fat … and then say, with a straight face, they need to raise taxes?
- Why the Royal Family cost British taxpayers about $60 million for expenses last year, while the Obama family cost American tax payers $1.4 billion for expenses?
- Where was Obama “really,” … when Americans, including a U.S. Ambassador, were being murdered during an Al Qaeda terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya?
- Where are all the millions in tax dollars Obama gave to his “bundling buddies” in the so-called “green energy” stimulus scandal? Still in their grubby little “bankrupt” pockets?
- Why “waterboarding” captured terrorists to stop future terrorist attacks is horrific, but using drones to assassinate Americans on Obama’s personal hit list is fine and dandy?
- How idiots like Congresswoman Diane Feinstein (who thinks it is legal to hunt humans … but is oh so very concerned with how many shots you actually get to kill them) can even get elected?
- Why such a win-win for the U.S. economy (jobs, friendly neighbor oil supplier, tax revenue) as the Key Stone Pipeline is still being blocked by Obama?
- Why Eric Holder is STILL in office after the ATF provided Mexican Drug Lords with more than 100 “assault weapons” that were used to commit brutal crimes including the murder of American Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry and 16 young people attending a party in a residential area of Ciudad Juárez in January of 2010.
- Why Obama shielded Eric Holder behind “executive privilege” even though neither Obama nor Holder “knew anything about it?”
Yes! Be a good little lap-dog and simply ignore the massive volume of dirty deals, influence peddling, shadow-government Czars, lawlessness, scandals, imperial decrees, and outright violations of the Constitution perpetrated by the Obama administration!
Way too many Cool Aid drinkers are willing close their eyes, sit, beg, get patted on the head, rollover, and trade their freedom and American heritage for a few scraps from the Obama/Bloomberg table! Well sorry folks … not me!
Unless concerned Americans take action, the Obama administration, left-wing democrats, and certain RINOs intend to continue operating a corrupt, self-serving, greedy, bloated government … regardless of the law, the U.S. Constitution , or the will of the American taxpayers! Liberty, Freedom, and the greatest nation on earth will be fundamentally transformed into a pseudo-communist state with the progressive/leftist elites in charge of us all!
And that is why they want … your guns.

Last Tuesday, the White House announced that it was canceling all public tours of the president’s home because of … wait for it … the sequester spending cuts.
“Due to staffing reductions resulting from sequestration, we regret to inform you that White House Tours will be canceled effective Saturday, March 9, 2013 until further notice. Unfortunately, we will not be able to reschedule affected tours,” the White House said in an email.
You can, of course, reschedule your WH tour for a small fee of $500,000!
Seriously folks, how freaking stupid and/or gullible do you have to be to actually believe that the “Sequestration” has forced cancellation of WH tours? I mean, critically thinking Americans should realize that Obama really cancelled the WH tours over rumors that Bob Woodward was going to take one to try and get close enough to ask him a REAL question.
ABC News has reported that cancelling the WH tours is saving the Secret Service $74,00 a week. How exactly is that? Are the Secret Service Agents guarding the WH during tours being given furloughs? Are they on leave without pay? Are they being laid off? Or are they just being re-assigned to other duties and therefore … still receiving pay and benefits? Where is this “supposed” savings? Enquiring minds want to know! Obama is simply throwing a petulant, child-like temper tantrum and his actions dishonor both the Office of the President and the White House! I mean, come on now! Since the Anointed One now charges $500,000 per “presidential” audience, perhaps he could do his “fair share” and help cover the WH tours? He could set the example for the rest of the nation!! But no, instead he has kicked “We the People” right out of OUR house!
So let’s get this right! We can afford to:
- Pay for Obama’s endless golf games with folks like Tiger Woods
- Give Pakistan $37 million for trade
- Give the TSA $50 million for new uniforms
- Give Egypt’s new terrororist supporting government let by radical Islamist Mohammed Morsi $1.55 billion annually (i.e., $250 million in economic aid and $1.3 billion in military aid … 20 F-16s, Abrams Tanks, etc.)
- Give the Obama family $1.4 billion in tax payer money for “expenses” in 2012 (In contrast, the British tax payers spent $57.8 million on the Royal Family last year).
Obama is making Washington, D.C. and the White House the laughing stock of the nation! By shutting down WH tours, our petulant little Messiah, Barrack Hussein Obama, is simply proving what many Americans have already come to understand … that all Washington is good for these days … is serving as a tacky tourist attraction.

“The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the US Government cannot pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government’s reckless fiscal policies. Increasing America’s debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that, ‘the buck stops here.’ Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better.”
~ Senator Barack H. Obama, March 2006
