...2009 Archives...

After having brayed, bleated, threatened, cajoled and screeched about how the Giant ACORN Porkulus Bill of 2009 had to be passed as in “RIGHT NOW”, with a majority of The People (not to mention the 535 worthless parasites expected to vote on it) still unaware of its actual contents other than their great-great-great-grandchildren being mortgaged into servitude forever, the Jugeared Freak of an Unkind Nature™, having gotten his monstrosity of a bill passed on Friday, decides that it’s time for him and his testicle-shelved peasant of a “wife” to go off on a three-day weekend.

After pushing Congress for weeks to hurry up and pass the massive $787 billion stimulus bill, President Obama promptly took off for a three-day holiday getaway.

Obama arrived at his home in Chicago on Friday, and treated wife Michelle to a Valentine’s Day dinner downtown last night. The couple was spotted leaving upscale Table Fifty-Two, which specializes in Southern cuisine, with the first lady toting what appeared to be a doggie bag.

The president plans to spend the Presidents’ Day weekend in the Windy City, and is not expected to sign the bill until Tuesday, when he travels to Denver to discuss his economic plan.

This after weeks of haranguing how every single second of holdup (caused by Evil Rethuglicans, of course) would cause unicorns to die and result in The End of the World as We Know It™. According to House Fascist Pelousy, every month of holdup would cause 500 million jobs lost, no less, proving, once again, that Fascist Demorats know as much about mathematics as garden slugs know about the Grand Unified Theory.

But hey, the Obamessiah deserves an extended weekend after having been on the job for almost a month, most of which he’s been spending trying to find a single Demorat nominee for his cabinet who isn’t a tax-evader, child molester, bribe-taker or otherwise utterly typical of the liberal demographic.

So how is this Jugeared Token Negro working out for you, “52s?”

Caveat Emptor.

Look it up, morons, or have somebody with an actual measurable IQ tell you what it is.

    Well, it’s not like he hasn’t done anything at all during his brief tenure. He’s managed to piss of the Brits by returning the bust of Winston Churchill they sent us as a token of solidarity after 9/11. It seems he doesn’t care for him much because Sir Winston was running the country when the Brits stopped some actual raping and pillaging in Kenya by putting down a Mau Mau rebellion. It’s claimed they ended up waterboarding Chiseled Pecs’ grandfather, Hussein Onyango Obama, during the process… or something like that.

    Hardly surprising that the imbecile Jugeared Peasant-in-Chief should have some loinclothed, raping and pillaging barbarians in the family tree.

    Allow me to correct that: Most of his family still lives in the family tree.

    I have no problem with President Empty Suit spending ALL of his time getting closer to the PEEEPUULLL.

    Now, if The One should travel down towards a certain locale in the Republic of Texas (soon to be its own country again), I think the good folks down that away could find a warm welcome for him.

    President Hussein al-Chicago returned the Churchill Bust since it reminded him of:

    There is no such thing as a good tax.

    Some see private enterprise as a predatory target to be shot, others as a cow to be milked, but few are those who see it as a sturdy horse pulling the wagon.

    The inherent vice of capitalism is the unequal sharing of blessings; the inherent virtue of socialism is the equal sharing of miseries.

    Then he goes and spends how many millions of dollars to ride in What-is-not-Air Force One to have dinner in Chicago before signing the Biggest-Theft-By-Government Evah!. Sounds like Daley needed his house-boy back for more instructions.

    Question…since juggy likes “ruling” by executive order, can he sign one eliminating amendments from the Constitution?

    I admit I don’t know much about the Constitution or Constitutional law.

    Milady,

    In the normal course of events, no. An Executive Order cannot over-ride the Constitution, and is reversable by any subsequent President. [Deo volente] There are, however, several caveats to deal with.

    Primus: We are not dealing with a President, but with a Usurper whose tenure is, in and of itself, a violation of the Constitution. As I posted in an article before, therefore; all his acts and all those of his subordinates are unconstitutional and therefore void. With that knowledge in mind though, I am pretty sure that they have no qualms about ignoring or voiding the Constitution.

    Secundus: Hussein Pasha is already on tape [audio and YouTube] expressing dissatisfaction at the limitations that the Constitution places on government and the lack of limitations it places on citizens. That is not a comforting sign.

    Tertius: Even if he was the legitimate president, there is a wide range of powers that he could invoke to control individuals [Internal Security Emergency], and pretty much any aspect of life. The powers were granted in anticipation of a possible nuclear strike disrupting the Federal government, but there is no requirement that we be actually struck. It is not beyond conception, indeed it is on its face likely, that he would attempt at some point to invoke those powers.

    One could even ponder the current situation; with his recent lifting of anti-terrorist sanctions on Syria, the reports that he will soon lift them on Iran [including the sanctions on their nuclear weapons program], and the passage of the Enabling Act he will sign Tuesday in Denver, and consider the possibility that these are deliberate attempts to create a situation where he would have a plausible series of casus majores to justify rule by decree in the subsequent crises.

    So, short form, no; not legally or Constitutionally. But we may not be dealing with the short form. One thing to watch for, when considering whether action to uphold the Oath is required, will be exactly what he tries to do by decree.

    Something to ponder. I have contact on occasion with military personnel. I make a point of thanking them for their service, telling them that despite whatever the government does that they are loved and honored by the citizens as the best of our sons and daughters, and that we truly are depending on them upholding the Oath if worse comes to worse. I have yet to get a bad reaction to this, and I offer the gesture to the LC’s to pass on. Every statement is truth; and none of them could be construed as sedition, unless you are a dictator-in-the-making.

    Perhaps an economic calamity would be arranged, providing for the declaration of martial law. Then, of course, for our protection, they would want all guns turned in. Also, of course, the average gun owner, given the times, would tell him to go fuck himself. But I sense a fear within him and his toadies, for they do fear the second amendment. This country more than large enough to desintegrate into several pieces, and out in the sticks they are owned by the residents, and no doubt hated. They seek to establish an Orwellian society with limited rights and movement. For the moment I anticipate only flank attacks on amendment two, using the UN, nibbling away at the periphery. Their stated beliefs it is for our own good fall on deaf ears for many. I am one. It could be found shocking for them to understand I consider them to be inferior beings, cerebral cretins, and spiritually barren, ethically bereft souls. Certainly no better than knowing what I want or need than I am. They want control and power, period. Such vainglorious egos settle for nothing else. The majority of people would be terrified, some seeking to capitulate, those in power seeking to turn them against those who would not. However there remain enough that would not give up to set the spark, and then its game on……
    I intend to give them nothing at all…….and it is a very biiiiig country.

    Has anyone else here noticed that Mr. Basketball appears to lack stamina? Several times, he’s complained about how “tired” he is, about how he needs to “get away”. Sorry, pal, you applied for and got the hardest job the world. There’s nobody you can run to in order to duck responsibility, there’s no way to vote “present” to keep from taking a stand on a tough issue. It’s all you, buddy. The whole world is watching. And you’re “tired”? That’s pathetic. It’s gonna be a long four years.

    In a lighter vein from Churchill, during one of his many confrontations with his regular antagonist, Lady Astor:

    LA: Winston, you’re drunk!
    WC: And you, madam, are ugly. But I shall be sober in the morning.

    Or this one:

    LA: Winston, if you were my husband, I’d give you poison.
    WC: Madam, if I were your husband, I’d take it.

    To be fair to Obama, one of his campaign promises was to post every piece of legislation online for five days so everyone could read it. Tomorrow will be the fifth day. He’s already broken that promise once with an earlier piece of legislation, and he was criticised for it. Given the importance of this bill I guess he figured it would need to be posted for five days like he promised.

    To be fair to you, I won’t even begin to assume that you actually believe that’s a defense. Sure, we’ll have five days to read it but, considering that it’s already been passed, what the fuck are we supposed to do about it if we decide we don’t like it?

    Ever read The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy?

    Right at the beginning of that story is an example of the same kind of “transparency” that you talk about. It talks about Vogons, an interstellar decision to demolish Earth to install a new hyperspace bypass and all bureaucratic rules about transparency being “honored.”

    I’m sure you know which one I’m talking about.

    Not sure. I suppose that now the bill’s available you can read it thoroughly, highlight the parts you especially dislike and then write to your congressperson or something. Still, there’s not much point putting bills online before they’re passed since lots of them presumably get rejected and amended several times over before a final version is agreed upon. If you kept putting versions up and taking them down again and changing them it would just annoy and confuse people.

    Besides, we don’t really have any excuse. Everybody knows this bill has been on display at our local galactic planning office in Alpha Centauri for two years :em93:

    That’s a fair point. Although I suppose five days is better than nothing. It may not be worth much on this bill, but it could probably be useful when preparing to pass human friendly bills shorter than the Bible.

    When is this Obama guy going to catch a break? First, he gets flak for taking a couple well deserved days off after engineering a comprehensive plan to paint a bridge, fill some potholes and save the imperiled San Francisco water rat. It’s a plan so brilliantly conceived that it could be condensed to a mere 1100 pages and one where the understandably considerable financial onus of paying for it doesn’t even rest on our shoulders exclusively. The costs will be spread out over our lifetime, our children’s lifetime and their children too.

    Now, the haters at Colorado’s Peterson Air Force Base grocery store got caught red-handed removing Obama’s face from a Presidents Day poster. When their tyranny and obvious racism was exposed, they came up with the lame ass excuse that, depending how you looked at it, President’s Day or Presidents’ Day or just simply Presidents Day was a day to honor Washington, or Washington and Lincoln, or Washington, Lincoln and all PAST presidents, but it isn’t – nor has it ever been – a day to honor the current, sitting president.

    The Colorado Springs NAACP, refusing to be inveigled, beguiled, hoodwinked or bamboozled by this so called “explanation”, said the commissary’s decision….

    “bodes poorly for the progress that we hoped we would see in this country.”

    I realize that you are a Brit. As a Brit, you are used to the ideas that:

    a) Your MP’s are creatures of the Party and not responsible to you.
    b) That your MP’s have no discretion in how they vote, if it is a matter of any importance.
    c) That your government has no real responsibility to the people of Britain.
    d) And that your government has no real power in how your own country is run, because you have yielded sovereignty in most matters that are handled by national governments to the unelected EU Commission [the MEP's having only power to collect their exorbitant paychecks and expense accounts. MEP's have no power over the budget, the creation of EU law, amending EU law, or repealing EU law. They cannot undertake the most basic function of a legislative body, control over fiscal matters, in large part because the unelected EU Commission that runs things refuses to keep any records that can be audited. Literally. For over a decade all attempts to audit the EU books have failed.

    Your parties ignore the people. Indeed, if you want to go by your own law [the Legislative and Regulatory Reform Act of 2007] any Minister can now create, amend, or repeal any statute with a signature, without reference to either House of Parliament, or the Crown. Your current government managed to have a transfer of power without benefit of a vote of the people, AND at their last time at risk at the polls promised to have a plebiscite on formally subordinating Britain to the EU in all matters. They renamed the EU Constitution a Treaty, and signed and ratified it without reference to the people, giving away your country. No plebiscite.

    Unlike what is commonly said, you do in fact have a written Constitution; but it is written in a number of places. And it is universally ignored by those who govern you.

    If you would seek inspiration from your national past, might I offer that starting on this page at BRITS AT THEIR BEST would be a beginning:

    http://www.britsatth....._2_3_4.htm

    Returning to your rights, as men more than just as Brits; you have yielded them up. Your government fears the lawless and oppresses the honest citizen. The power of the State is employed against the free exchange of ideas, even in your Parliament. You are hemmed in by the power of the intruding hordes of government busybodies who somehow in all matters and points of contention are considered more qualified to live your lives than you are.

    The British approach to government is to be a forelock tugging serf, hoping for charity from your “betters” but with no sense that it is your country and your government, and your fate that you should be the master of. You do not own your country. You are owned by it and by the Aristocrats [regardless of party, there ain't a day's honest work in the lot of them] who alternate in using Orwell’s 1984 not as a warning, but as an instruction manual.

    With the exception of a few willing Petainist’s, those of us in our somewhat tongue in cheek Empire, and at least 48% of our fellow citizens are NOT serfs. It is now [over the objection of the current regime I grant, and that is a point of contention that will be settled by any means necessary] and ever has been the innately American belief that we are free, self governing individuals; subject only to whatever conception of a Creator we may hold, to the Constitution, and to laws freely and openly made in accordance with that Constitution and with our own consent. We became a nation on April 19, 1775, and formally left the European idea of eternal servitude behind July 4, 1776.

    It took some …… unpleasantness …. to convince HM government of that, but we did it. If you would hope to understand Americans; you need to learn that we do not intend to be forced back into that system. While our government has come to believe otherwise; we consider them OUR servants, and their positions are held only subject to our approval. WE, each bloody one of us, is master or mistress of our own fate. They do not own us. We note that they try to make laws in secret, and for their benefit instead of the nation’s. That is not the American way, and we will, if necessary, resort to …… unpleasantness …. again to bring them to heel.

    In the particular case in point, our custom is to have the laws available to us before they are voted on. It is our custom that we will have words with our servants over any provisions; before they vote. And they ignore us at their peril.

    Your justification that we can complain once we find out what the law is, after it has been imposed on us, is perhaps appropriate for Brits, but not for us. Unlike Brits; instead of whinging and crying for mercy after we have been raped, we prefer to cut the goolies off of the rapist before he completes the act.

    Long ago. Too long ago, before we recognized that we were at war Islam, I was involved in talk radio. My studio “bump music” was the bridge from a song called Jefferson and Liberty. Did not use the words then, but the first verse refers to a “Night of Fire” that is yet to come. The second verse is perhaps a good explanation of our relationship with an oppressive government:

    Well, no man is good or wise enough,
    To rule another or disown,
    The rights of every woman and man,
    To live and let live and be left alone.

    The British Bulldog has transmogrified into a Bichon Frise.

    We like to think that we are still Wolverines. If pressed, we have a reasonable chance to prove the point.

    a minimum “waiting period” before voting on legislation, say ten days from the last amendment, would at least give the congress critters the chance to find out what they are actually voting for. and it would be fun to watch them add try to add things irrelavent to the original bill since every change would reset the clock.
