You know, there comes a point when you have to start wondering…
There are historians, and His Imperial Majesty sees their point, who claim that the Emperor Caligula wasn’t so much insane as he was putting on a giant Performance Art Masterpiece. You know, along the lines of “seriously, those stuffed togas in the Senate won’t let me get away with this, will they?” Making his horse a Senator, holding orgies depraved even by the very low standard set for orgies, pretending to invade Britain and claiming that he’d defeated Neptune and brought back a bounty of seashells to prove it, and so on and so forth.
And boy king Obama’s latest criminal act of buying a deserter’s life with the release of 5 top terrorists while we are still at war added to the umpty-eleventy previous crimes against the Constitution and the people, all the while basically blowing raspberries at us and yelling “nyah, nyah, whatchagonna do about it?”, certainly makes us wonder if the Criminal-in-Chief isn’t a reincarnation of “little boot.”
He orders weapons sold to the worst criminals in Mexico in order to create an argument about U.S. guns creating violence in other countries, he orders his IRS to harass, intimidate and and deprive political opponents of their 1st Amendment rights, he sits on his thumbs and rotates while a U.S. Ambassador is raped and murdered and then relieves any and all officers who were trying to do something of their duties, he refuses to enforce a myriad of laws that he doesn’t agree with, he goes on vacations that cost taxpayers hundreds of millions, gorges himself on the finest foods and wines in orgies that would make most emperors blush while millions upon millions of Americans lose their jobs, their health coverage and their homes thanks to his policies, presides over organized mass murder of veterans through denial of service and then violates a law he himself signed by handing over five of our most murderous enemies in return for a haji-sympathizing traitor and deserter…
And those are just a FEW of his crimes, because we don’t want to overload the Internets.
You might want to read this book if you want a full list (h/t LC Greywolf125), full at least at the time of writing, although we’re sure it’s longer now.
And all the while
Caligula’s Senate the GOP Congress members sit on their arses letting him get away with everything.
Oh sure, we’ll have “hearings”, and we all know just how effective they are, don’t we? What’s your current Investigation Count™, Issa, you sniveling, gutless worm? 47? 68? 274?
Of course, eventually the Praetorians decided that enough was enough, and that was the end of Caligula.
Seems to us it’s about time they declare they’ve had enough again.
