Letter: Déjà vu all over again?

In Obama's speech to the nation he stated, "If Congress doesn't act I will...."

Didn't we have a revolution to get rid of a king once already?

@ FLS

“Should not be too tough for you, right AN?”

Nope, in fact it is very easy, however – as I have pointed out numerous times – thanks to you always calling any source I might indicate as “liberal trash” I no longer post sources, relying instead on people (but never you) to disprove the facts I post.

So, please, go for it and prove me wrong – oh, and a hint, don’t go to the State Department website, it’ll make you look silly.

“why is it you mf wont post any of my opinions!”

Hmm, they just did.

Perhaps they are too long, or too inflammatory, or too insulting, or too insane (oh, wait, Ms Athens is proof that doesn’t matter).

Calm down, take a deep breath, write your post, then read it over, tone it down, then post it and after that good luck!

@ansons nephew

"And foreign aid (which accounts for less than 1% of the budget) is an investment that has, overall, paid off many times over. The actual figures for foreign aid (2010 – latest available) are $44.957 billion with another $11.010 for military assistance for a total of just under $56 billion – no where near the “trillions” you cited."

"Paid off many times over", you say? Fine AN, as you demanded of so many others, be specific and tell us where, how, and how much.

Should not be too tough for you, right AN?

LOL

“Cut Congress, Senators and Oboma's salary, cut benefits to illegals and cut out the trillions of dollars in foriegn aid. It would make America solvent immediantly.”

How much of a cut would you recommend for the President and Congress – be specific please by dollar amounts. What benefits are illegal receiving – again be specific. And foreign aid (which accounts for less than 1% of the budget) is an investment that has, overall, paid off many times over. The actual figures for foreign aid (2010 – latest available) are $44.957 billion with another $11.010 for military assistance for a total of just under $56 billion – no where near the “trillions” you cited.

And I am curious as to exactly how the cuts you recommend would “…make America solvent immediately?”

Instead of cutting Air Port Security, Air Traffic Controlers and School Teachers, maybe there are better ideas. Cut Congress, Senators and Oboma's salary, cut benefits to illegals and cut out the trillions of dollars in foriegn aid. It would make America solvent immediantly. The biggest problem is Americans will not stick together.Everyone complains but no one except the government aggrees on anything. It's basically the American people against it's own government. Politicians are in just to make themselves rich and screw the people and until the citizens of America decide to stand up to the government, nothing, and I mean nothing will change.

Article comment by: Bring on the revolution

Linda Athens:

I'm ready for the revolution when you are. I'm a proud liberal and I carry. I won't abide letting this country become anything close to the hate you spew nor would I entertain your idea of a Christian theocracy for one single minute. I'm willing to stake my life on it. Are you?

Your arguments seem to be mostly made up to me, and I dismiss most of your divisive, old world nonsense on principle. I'm sorry if you don't like facts, tolerance or freedom, but some of us prefer these things. We are always free to disagree of course, but the day you and your like-minded cult attempt to force your myopic world views upon a diverse nation will be the day you receive a rebellion on a scale like you've never seen before.

It will be the biggest fight of your life, and you will ultimately lose, because good always defeats evil. I hope you're willing to accept that outcome once again.

Now we have the birther's and the secessionist's joining forces preaching civil war, treason, sedition! I wonder if they realize that is a criminal offense under federal law? At minimum they with out a doubt are on some home grown terrorist watch list, bet those 11 acres of under ground government computers that monitor internet, phones, radio etc., keep tabs on them so no danger of them having any successful plot to over throw the US government, about the best they will do is win a cell in federal prison!

"Obama's executive orders have by passed actual legislation that had already been passed by Congress and signed by a sitting president."

Nope, never happened. Now we will wait for you to prove otherwise. Be specific, thank you.

@OKR

"Obama's executive orders have by passed actual legislation that had already been passed by Congress and signed by a sitting president. "

And yet, Obama still has not even come close to signing as many EO's as his predecessor. So, what is your point?

Are you actually admitting that the Republicans in Congress are refusing to pass any legislation. I could see that. Unfortunately, the Dems are just as stubborn when it comes to compromise.

@Linda:

"First, obama did not win a majority and second, he and his people threw the election."

President Obama won a majority of the popular vote in both 2008 and 2012. He won with 52.93% of the vote in 2008 and 51.06% of the vote in 2012.

"The voter fraud was MASSIVE last November. MASSIVE."

Please provide your proof of your statement.

Just because you assert something, doesn't make it true.

Linda, please stop posting your opinion as fact. The president did in fact take more than 50% of the vote in the past two elections. Using an electoral college or not he would have been the president both times. You continue to post about "massive" voter fraud but provide little to no proof.

Saying Obama "threw" the election is silly to say the least. To "throw" an election is to actively try to lose the election. This can be done openly or behind the scenes. Obama by your own words didn't "throw" any election. I think "rig" is the word you are looking for but I again ask you to please provide proof. I understand you are upset he won but that doesn't mean it was due to cheating.

You state that Harry Reid said that Romney never paid any taxes. What Reid actually said is that Romney did not want to show his tax returns because he basically paid no taxes for the past TWELVE years. Nothing about never, nothing about none, just basically paid no taxes for twelve years. It is a bit suspicious that Romney never did show those tax returns either when his own father set the precedent.

As for Netanyahu, why are you so fascinated with Israel? Should the prime minister of Israel be the judge of all of our decisions? Netanyahu doesn't like the president because he won't sit there and fight the holy war for him which is a good thing. In the Bible it states that there will never be peace in the Middle East. You state often that you are a Christian so I would assume you also believe this and therefore see no point in us being the personal armed guard of Israel.

Ms Athens

“First, obama did not win a majority and second, he and his people threw the election.”

First, yes he did – that is how one wins an election – most votes equals majority. Second, you have been asked a dozen times to provide proof of that statements and every time you have failed to do.

“Kind of like how the obama folks smeared Romney with the worst sort of lies.”

What lies? Willard the Money Hider was shown to be an anti-American sleaze with his bankrupting of American companies, putting American workers out on the streets, stealing the pension funds of American workers, sending American jobs to COMMUNIST CHINA, investing in COMMUNIST CHINESE sweatshops and companies that steal the intellectual property of American companies, while hiding his money off-shore to make certain American businesses or American workers would never benefit from his wealth. And as a final slap to American workers he buys a foreign SUV manufactured in Slovakia. Now, please fill us in on the “lies.” Thank you.

“Harry Reid made the statement Romney never paid any taxes.”

Nope, Senator Reid never made any such statement.

“The voter fraud was MASSIVE last November. MASSIVE.”

And you have yet to show any proof of that. However, the ONE person actually convicted of voter fraud was Republican Roxanne Rubin of Las Vegas, NV.

“He's the worst nightmare our country could ever have but you will find that out the hard way.”

Actually that would be the only convicted criminal ever appointed to the White House who is responsible for the deaths of thousands of our troops because he lied to the American people and started a war against a nation that posed no threat to us.

"First, obama did not win a majority and second, he and his people threw the election. Also threw the first election and when he ran for Senator, he was up against someone there was no way he could beat. But he found a way."

Yes Linda, Obama did win a majority, no matter what you say it will still be a fact.

Second, "throwing" an event means you are purposely trying to lose. We know that is not true since Obama won, despite Republicans best attempts at fraud to steal the election.

Article comment by: nnp .....

One of these days, I hope we get the story straight about the American Revolution, because several supposedly well-documented but differing accounts are available for our perusal. It was a great Christian crusade, it was Masons fulfilling Bavarian/Parisian schemes more-or-less in the wake of the Thirty Years War and its effects, no it was purely a matter of thwarting ol' King George III from making us use his equivalent of the Federal Reserve (probably traceable to the Jews whom William III brought with him from Holland a bit earlier). Oh, I left out one plausible scenario - patriot gatherings in taverns throughout the American colonies, bolstered with ale and righteous indignation over a couple of English taxes. Actually, I read lurid accounts of German mercenaries amongst George's troops who abused the right to reside in Americans' homes on duty - something about what they did to women and girls - moral travesties so grave that only war could redress the situation. We weren't there, and we really can't be sure what was uppermost in their minds.

Obama's executive orders have by passed actual legislation that had already been passed by Congress and signed by a sitting president.

Oh for the love of....

First, stop believing everything on the internet....
http://www.snopes.com/politics/obama/executiveorders.asp

Obama has issued, to date, 149 Executive Orders. George H.W. Bush did more than that in his first term -
http://www.heritage.org/static/reportimages/13924869593575D4C60F531035958E4B.gif
So says a conservative think tank!

Though what's worse - You don't even know what you're afraid of! And what if all Obama does is try and sway legislators? Is that so scary that you need to worry?

Secondly:
Read the declaration of Independence.
Read the list of grievances.
Realize that colonists had it way, way worse than you ever have had things in your very nice American life.
Apologize to your high school civics teacher because you clearly did not respect him or her enough to pay attention.

Donna Wickerd:

First, obama did not win a majority and second, he and his people threw the election. Also threw the first election and when he ran for Senator, he was up against someone there was no way he could beat. But he found a way.

With the help of Communist David Axelrod (yes, a Communist raised by Communist parents), Axelroad helped him completely smear the opponent so badly, the man had to drop out and obama won.

Kind of like how the obama folks smeared Romney with the worst sort of lies. Romney had two choices, use campaign money to fend off the lies or ignore them. Unfortunately, you low information voter lemmings believed the lies and it hurt Romney terribly.

Here is but one. Harry Reid made the statement Romney never paid any taxes. A blatant lie and of course, he paid plenty of taxes, all the government required of him. But he never fought back and you low info's believed it.

Obama couldn't win a dog fight without cheating, that's for damned sure. And cheat he did. He knew he had five states he needed to carry and he had plenty of good Dems who were not even afraid of going to jail to cheat for him and they did big time. The voter fraud was MASSIVE last November. MASSIVE.

When will you blinded fools ever see the truth? This man is an amateur who couldn't run a lemonade stand. When Netanyahu met him, he was STUNNED at what an amateur he is. He didn't even understand how our government was run. Still doesn't. Doesn't need to - he makes up his own rules as he goes along.

He's the worst nightmare our country could ever have but you will find that out the hard way.

Ms Athens

“…. you swerve into the truth…”

No, I post the truth each and every day, it is you who seems to be unable to do so.

And I know Jesus would be right behind you as you march off to WAR! Oh, wait, you don’t believe in women going to war, so you would not be doing anything except posting here as people die.

Bob Moore:

"Espousing war - what an amazingly Christian concept" you said.

Every now and then you swerve into the truth. Not often...but occasionally.

Psalms 144: 1 - Blessed be the Lord, my strength, who teacheth my hands to war, and my fingers to fight

The American Revolution was launched from the pulpits of the churches. After Sunday church, the parishioners met outside and practiced marching with weapons - knowing God was leading them to soon fight England.

"No King but King Jesus" was the motto they went by and the preachers themselves pushed fighting the King of England. It was right and they did - to launch the greatest Christian country to ever be on the face of God's earth.

President Obama was elected by a majority of the population twice. Your name-calling is just a pathetic way of saving face after your party announced to the world they would do everything to keep him from getting re-elected--and they lost everything. So go ahead and call him a King if it makes you feel better. The majority of us know the truth about him---and about you!

"Espousing war. What an amazingly Christian concept. Patheic."

Says the guy who brags here about taking part in a war that had nothing at all to do with defending us from anything. Equally pathetic.

LOL
