Pulling Together As a Team (Of Really Stupid Oxen)

I knew he was going to do it. It was inevitable. It's been done by every petty dictator since the beginning of time.

Do what?

Today, in his phony State of the Union Speech....or was it a practice State of the Union Speech? Or was it yet another step down the short, steep slide into national socialism?

He played the "shared sacrifice" card. The only persons that play the "shared sacrifice" card are dictators. George W Bush did it. As did Jimma Carter. Add Bill Clinton to the list, along with Richard Nixon and Franklin Roosevelt. I could come up with a long, long list of dictators from other countries and times that fit into this category, who were, in their time and place, responsible for diminishing the enjoyment of the lives of their subjects, who were guilty of impoverishing them and murdering millions.

There are a few reasons why the above mentioned American dictators have been unable to wreak the same kind of havoc as have those dictators of other lands and times. Oh, wait! Some of them actually have. We all remember, or have heard/read about the wars in which these dictators involved innocent Americans.

Shared Sacrifice.

Isn't it funny how we all have to share the "sacrifice," but the dictators, and their henchmen, never seem to sacrifice anything.

Well, Mr Obama, bring on the pain. We can handle it. Again.

Maybe one of these days, when we're poor enough, and hungry enough, we'll remember that, as America's best ever President said, that "The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants."

People should not be afraid of their governments; governments should be afraid of the people.

Warm regards,

Yeah, that shared sacrifice part always cracks me up. I couldn't even watch that horrid presentation for more than five minutes. I'm so fed up, Col. Just fed up. I'm ready to refresh that tree with some tyrant blood.

Lady C,

Certainly tyrant blood is more expendable--if lower in quality--than patriot blood.

Good post Bro and very true. I didn't watch the chump give his speech cause it was past my bedtime. Besides that I'm sure Kelley had something on DVR if he came on earlier. I have heard enough since to find out it was an "I'm gonna stick it to ya....really stick it to ya" speech.

B Hussein and his evil henchmen have a plan. They're going to make everyone who might donate to the GOP too poor to do so. Meanwhile, they'll look the other way, as they have with all B Hussein's appointees, when rich democrats cheat on their taxes.

When San Fran Nan said "Let them eat cake". Oh, she didn't use those exact words, to be sure. She didn't have to. The meaning and the inflection were the same. Their heads are now forfeit. It's only a matter of timing.

Col. Hogan said...


Actually, this time it was B Hussein who said it.
