I recently saw an image of President Obama exchanging a high-five with Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. from the black and white beyond.
After considering the image and what it represents, I think the photo-shopper got a couple of things wrong, so I fixed it.
That’s more accurate.
Here’s the original.
While I’m sure that Dr. King would be happy to see a man of color inaugurated President, I cannot believe he would condone much, if any, of the actions of this unconstitutional president. Judging by content of character, I think he would be ashamed of the legacy Barack Hussein Obama leaves behind.
Happy President’s Day.

College Student Responds to “Defining “American”” – Unwittingly Provides Proof of Generational Training
A few days after the post ‘Defining “American”‘ I received a comment from Kristen informing me of her decision to respond to the article as a project for her college English Argument class, and asking if I would be interested in reading her paper when finished. Since she was very polite, I responded in the affirmative, with the caveat that if she did indeed send the paper to me, I might publish some, all or none of the rebuttal. After much hand wringing on the issue, I have decided to publish her entire argument. I think anyone who has children in public school or college needs to know what they are being taught. And I think Kristen proves my point that far too many people have forgotten what it truly means to be American, even if she didn’t intend to.
If you haven’t already read it, you may wish to read my original piece, here. I’ll offer some thoughts after Kristen has her say.
Response to Defining American
Medicare is currently doing its job now without being excessive, according to the chart you provide. Social Security was one of the many programs passed as part of the New Deal in 1935. (Kelly) It was successful in getting America back to economic prosperity whether you consider it socialist or not and that is why it is still around today. So why, all of the sudden, in the near future would it be predicted that we would be sending so much more on Medicare, Social Security, and Medicaid. Medicare has been around since 1965 and government health insurance has been around much longer than that. In the early 1900s states began to collect taxes to be used as insurance premiums from workers and employers. The reason this did not work was because individual states did not want to implement extra taxes that may put the business in their states at a disadvantage during the Great Depression. (Corning)
“One of the duties of the State is that of caring for those of its citizens who find themselves the victims of such adverse circumstances as makes them unable to obtain even the necessities for mere existence without the aid of others. That responsibility is recognized by every civilized nation. . . . To these unfortunate citizens aid must be extended by Government–not as a matter of charity but as a matter of social duty. (Corning) In my opinion that is part of what it means to be American, to not only keep up with the other civilized first world nations but to surpass them with our new ideas and high standards. Being American is about being able to have different opinions.
Saying that more people are against America as it was founded than slavery is a contradiction. America was founded on great principals but those principals often did not translate into reality. In theory it sounds good; America was founded on the principal of escaping oppression on the basis of religious persecution. But ironically early America, as it was founded, was a very oppressive place. It was oppressive to women, poor people, and anyone who was not white. The American voting system was designed to prevent majority tyranny but how can that work if the oppressed minority cannot vote to begin with? This method of preventing majority tyranny did not work then and it continues to fail today. (Garlikov) Even when the minority on any number of issues can vote they continue to be outnumbered and oppressed by the majority. This is why progress is slow but of course progress will come, as it always has, with America leading the way. I am a strong believer in Democracy because I believe that most people want to do things that are good and right. While we may agree on what those things may be we still have the same goal and we both want what is best for America. I know that progress takes a long time, like civil rights and women’s rights. I feel bad that those things could not have happened sooner but it came when the people were ready for it and I understand that only when a value is generally held by a society that it can work as a part of law. To me that is what it means to be American: paving the road to progress.
You say that Obama is redistributing the wealth but you are failing to mention that our previous president, George W. Bush, was guilty of exactly what you are accusing Obama of. We all know that the higher your income is the higher your taxes are, but Bush made special exceptions. A Congressional study said that families earning more than $1 million a year saw their federal tax rates drop more sharply than any group in the country as a result of President Bush’s tax cuts and that tax rates for middle-income earners edged up. (Andrews) Bush may have lowered taxes for everyone but the people who got the biggest tax breaks were in the top one percent income earners in the United States. He added tax cuts on investment income and on estates specifically to benefit the richest households. Just one decade of those tax cuts would cost a trillion dollars. (Andrews) And the people to pick up the tab for the money lost during the Bush administration will be my generation and maybe yours since I do not know how old you are. The bottom forty percent of income earners get money back from the government and pay what is considered negative taxes so they were not affected by the Bush tax cuts. (Andrews) Obama extended the Bush tax cuts to individuals making less than $200,000 per year and families making less than $250,000 per year. In 2010 Obama gave businesses a $5,000 tax credit for each new employee they added. (Khan, Jaffe)
In your blog you say The true definition of being an American has been diluted by diversity and diffused by political correctness. I believe that this statement reflects the opposite of the definition of American. America has always been a nation of immigrants. America is perhaps the most diverse nation in the world. Having a diverse mix of ethnicities, cultures, and opinions and being able to live with and accept it makes America great. I agree that political correctness is not always a good thing in certain specific situation when it does not reflect truth. We should be able to talk about and address all types of stereotypes, perhaps then we can overcome our differences.Â In the words of Barack Obama “The anger is real, it is powerful, and to simply wish it away, to condemn it without understanding its roots, only serves to widen the chasm of misunderstanding that exists between the races.” (Obama Tackles Race Divide in Major Speech)
I agree with you that many people unrightfully have an entitlement mindset. These people tend to think â€œwhat can my country do for me and are ungrateful what for what we provide to them with our tax dollars. But we cannot let these people affect the way we think of everyone who receives welfare nor should they be able to ruin the system for everyone. You say that … the America we thought we knew is teetering on the precipice of a debt cliff caused by overspending on unearned entitlements. But it is estimated that only about four percent of the United States budget is being spent on welfare. (How Much Does the Nation Spend on Welfare? – Public Aid, State Expenditures For Social Welfare, Private Welfare Expenditures, Welfare-reform Legislation) Entitlement programs like Medicare and Social security are paid into by the public when they pay taxes, that is why they are entitled to them. Of course we all get the same benefits without paying the same amount of taxes. You may call that Socialism and in a way perhaps it is but I still do not believe it would be morally right to let the poorest people do without these programs, as they are the ones who need them most.
You talk a lot about what you call generational training which you describe as an inherent flaw with each younger generation that causes selfishness. I completely disagree. Selfish, greedy people have always existed and always will. My young generation of new voters has plenty of pride and work ethic. In fact it is the older generation that takes the most from government if you include the entitlement programs Social Security and Medicare, which take up over thirty percent of the United States federal budget. (Nullification: Are State Level Officials Really Opposed to Federal Encroachment?) But I understand that they need those things and have the right to them. I sympathize with them knowing that I will probably be old one day too and I hope that when that day comes the programs I am entitled to are there to help me after I have paid into them my entire life.
As much as our opinions on these issues may differ I believe that, like I said before, we share a common interest: to make America better. I can see that you have strong opinions, as do I, and that is a good thing. Our passion and enthusiasm about politics and America is something we have in common. And because this is America we both can freely express our opinions, which I think is wonderful.
Here is my reply, slightly abbreviated, as I feel my actual rebuttal lies in most of the posts already on my blog and those of many other conservatives.
I’m glad you chose my piece as the opposing view for your article and I hope you continue your search for what it means to be an American. It is one of the most important questions you will ever ask of yourself or your fellow Americans.
You mentioned in your accompanying email message that you didn’t want to start a debate but I cannot let these arguments go unchallenged. It is clear to me that you are concerned for the well being of your fellow Americans and that is admirable. It is also painfully clear that you’ve bought into the whole “victim mentality” that permeates much of our country and serves only to reinforce the entitlement culture. While you say we agree on the fact that some entitlements are unearned, you don’t propose any steps to alleviate the problem. In fact, you mention it once and proceed to gloss over it.
I could go through Kristen’s piece line by line, but I’ll just do the first. It exemplifies the rest.
Medicare is currently doing its job now without being excessive, according to the chart you provide.
Did you ignore the chart after 2011? Didn’t you see the projected outlay of money to social programs which, if left unchecked, will bankrupt the nation? Not being excessive? Really? We are currently living on borrowed money to enable these programs. The interest on that debt is a huge contributor to the projected debt levels in the chart, not to mention when Obamacare really gets going.
You mentioned also that, according to some guy who wrote something (FDR – Corning), it is the social duty of government to take money from those who have earned it and give that money to those who have not (The bottom line of your quote.). The qualifications for that “benefit” are also to be laid out by the government doing the taking. You don’t have a problem with that? You don’t see the potential for abuse of power being actualized at this moment by the politicians buying votes with peoples’ taxed (stolen) dollars? This is why the Founders were against social programs born of the Federal Government, because the Fed. is too far removed from the people it is supposed to serve. These programs belong at the local, regional, or state level, if they come from government at all. (See Romneycare for an example of more government healthcare failure.)
It is clear to me from your arguments that restraining the powers of the Federal Government to its original “few and defined” number, has ceased to be taught in our schools. In fact, it ceased to be taught years before the New Deal. If it had been, people would have never been duped into such a ponsi scheme as Social Security or many other New Deal type programs. The New Deal was the gateway drug to government’s addiction to taking it’s citizen’s property, leading the way to ever more taxes and increases on those taxes for some other new entitlement, and now that they have set the IRS as a redistributive tool, they disguise any thievery at all in some cloak of charitable outlay while accusing the taxed of being cold-hearted, uncaring and greedy. Witness political projection at it’s finest.
Not far from where I live is a city called Port Arthur, Texas, which has a rich history in the oil exploration and refinery industry. The city has been run for decades by predominantly liberal policy. As of the latest tally the local unemployment rate stands at 16% to 17%, which is quite probably the worst in Texas. The jobs are available. High paying ones. There are many workers coming in from all over the country to fill positions the local people won’t take. Why? Entitlement Mentality. They have been trained for years by their government and culture to not take a job if it will interfere with their welfare or unemployment check, plain and simple. The unemployment rate in the state of Texas is 8%. Even if we assume that 8% of the population of Port Arthur is indigent, how do you explain the other 8%? I’ve lived here for 25 years and I can tell you that they do not want a real job, even when one is readily available. If you look at most any city or county across the nation (Detroit for example?) that has long standing leftist policies I believe you will find the vast majority to be the same. People won’t work if they are paid not to. It’s that simple. Look for yourself. Question what your professors tell you is “progress” and you will find that their version of progress only takes away a person’s will to provide for themselves. Is it any wonder that the Heritage Fundation’s 2010 Index of Dependence on Government finds
…the United States is close to the point at which half of the population will not pay taxes for government benefits they receive.
Half the population. How does that happen?
When I said “Generational Training,” I was not referring to young people being defective, as you inferred from my piece. I was referring to actual instruction, which you have obviously been receiving at the hands of the very people who wish to see you enslaved. The fact that you can veil all of your arguments into a guilt ridden projection of our countries past faults to justify more spending of money not your own is what I was referring to when I said “Generational Training.” Those types of thought patterns don’t happen automatically unless you have been so instructed.
As far as GWB goes, you won’t find me defending his over spending or any other republican for that matter. I’m no big fan of government spending no matter which side of the aisle it comes from or who argues for it. I find it funny that some people can criticize Bush for spending too much but praise Obama for spending ten times more. I don’t like either group spending our money and neither should you.
In closing, Kristen, you did a very good job of laying out the leftist talking points and guilt trips. The 16th through19th centuries were harsh times in the entire world. I’d doubt very seriously that women or blacks or any minorities were treated with the respect they receive today. But you fail to mention the fact that it was in America where those rights first began to emerge. It was Americans who abolished slavery. It was in America that women got the right to vote. It was in America where blacks got the right to vote as well. Why must we be forced to pay the price for something you and I had no part in? I don’t recall ever having owned a slave or preventing anyone a vote. Those arguments are old and tired. Can’t we just get past them to truly address the real problems of the country?
The idea of individual liberty is at the core of America and it is individual liberty that is under attack. It must always be fought for because there will always be someone wishing to take it from you, even under the guise of Social Justice or some other re-branding. Call it what you will, it is still slavery trying to raise its ugly head, and it is still wrong.
Some would like us to entertain the idea that Barack Hussein Obama is an idiot. ‘He is just inexperienced.’ ‘Give him a chance, he’ll get it right eventually,’ they might say. Or some would say there is a puppet-master lurking in an anteroom of the White House, feeding the teleprompter.
Some would say such things, and they might be right in most cases. But the larger truth is, there can be no doubt of Barack Hussein Obama’s motives. He despises America and everything it stands for. His actions reveal his plan even though his words leave you with whatever impression you want to take away from his convoluted double speak.
Even if someone or some other force is at work directing his actions, the actions and their consequences still lay at his feet.
A complicit media and congress have allowed him to do so much damage to our constitution both through unconstitutional policy set by unelected appointees and passage of unjust, unconstitutional law, that it cannot be interpreted as anything but an attack on America.
I will offer a caveat though, lest someone say I’m being too harsh, let’s give credit where credit is due. While Obama is surely inexperienced at running a country; he’s doing a damn good job of running one into the ground.
I’ll also grant you this: the republicans and democrats alike have spent us into a hole of almost insurmountable debt over the last decades, weakening our resolve with ever increasing taxation while indoctrinating our people with their Utopian nightmare through the public schools and academia alike. However damaging that was, nothing compares to the onslaught of the socialistic, traitorous Democratic Party in charge of the legislature the past two years. It’s as if the last hundred years of failed social experimentation with the welfare state was just a set-up for the final blows to be administered by Obama, Pelosi and Reid and their collectivist, statist, sycophants.
“… a Constitution of Government once changed from Freedom, can never be restored. Liberty once lost is lost forever. When the People once surrender their share in the Legislature, and their Right of defending the Limitations upon the Government, and of resisting every Encroachment upon them, they can never regain it.“ John Adams, letter to wife Abigail 1775
A Constitutional Scholar vs. the Constitution:
Barack Hussein Obama and certain members of congress, with malice and forethought, are committing acts of treason in the process of ‘Fundamentally Transforming the United States of America.’
It is a fact that Obama and the university where he lectured labeled him a constitutional scholar. I would think that an expert on the constitution is intimately aware of the limitations placed on the federal government by the constitution and as such, Obama has violated his oath of office merely by signing the unconstitutional Obamacare into law because it so violates the right of a citizen with its intrusive nature and the individual mandate to purchase a product. The law is plainly outside the constitution’s limitation of the federal government’s lawful reach, not to mention the underhandedness that transpired in the passage through the American throat.
During the choke down of Obamacare, they repeatedly ignored the wishes of the majority, bribed the bill through congress in closed door meetings, stretched and broke the rules of the House and Senate to pass the bill and once passed and signed; they now continue to ignore federal judges who have ruled Obamacare unconstitutional and unenforceable by continuing to implement it!
As an example of his disdain for the rule of law and of his attack on the American economy, Obama ignored, and still ignores, a federal judge’s ruling to lift the Gulf of Mexico drilling moratorium, in place since the BP Oil spill causing many oil rigs to relocate to waters strangely friendly to Obama’s communist dictator friends such as Hugo Chaves. In fact, another judge ruled just last week and ordered the administration to resume issuing drilling permits.
I won’t be holding my breath.
Oh, and don’t even think about coal.
Obamacare is just a part of the plan.
Even if this man were an idiot, he could not have stumbled into the perfect storm of his dream for ever expanding, unfunded, entitlements, his war on America’s oil and energy industry and his war on the private sector of America. These are part of a larger plan. He told us during the campaign his plan was “The Fundamental Transformation of the United States of America” and he has proceeded to do just that.
How’s that transformation workin’ out for ya?
I contend that the latest $3.73 trillion budget proposal is more of the same. A continuation of the Cloward – Piven strategy aimed at burying the US in her own debt with the Federal Reserve playing right along by printing more money, monetizing our debt and alienating our allies, which also has the added benefit of producing the opposite effect: emboldening or enemies. Case in point: the Muslim Brotherhood’s current subversive dealings in the Middle East.
Neat how that works, isn’t it?
For the uninitiated: Cloward – Piven Strategy as summed up by David Horowitz:
The strategy of forcing political change through orchestrated crisis. The “Cloward-Piven Strategy” seeks to hasten the fall of capitalism by overloading the government bureaucracy with a flood of impossible demands, thus pushing society into crisis and economic collapse.
Are Obama and his ilk knowingly perpetrating acts of treason?
If Obama and the democrats are indeed maliciously orchestrating the collapse of our economy by placing increasingly overburdening demands on the system, and I believe they are, then they are in violation of their oaths to protect this country and are guilty of treason against our constitution and the citizens of this great nation.
1. the offense of acting to overthrow one’s government or to harm or kill its sovereign.
2. a violation of allegiance to one’s sovereign or to one’s state.
3. the betrayal of a trust or confidence; breach of faith; treachery.
or, from the Legal Dictionary:
the offense of attempting to overthrow the government of one’s country or of assisting its enemies in war; specifically : the act of levying war against the United States or adhering to or giving aid and comfort to its enemies by one who owes it allegiance
a person who is guilty of treason or treachery, in betraying friends, country, a cause or trust, etc.
I contend that the Obama administration has been knowingly and willfully ignoring the limitations placed on the federal government and thus have shattered their allegiance to the constitution they swore an oath to uphold.
The president’s oath of office reads:
I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.
In my opinion Obama is, to the best of his ability, destroying, attacking, and assaulting the Constitution of the United States, exactly opposite of what he swore to do.
To those that would call me a conspiracy theorist I would counter with this: It doesn’t take a conspiracy when all the active parties are in accord with their ambitions and in this case, McCarthy was right! There were communists in our government and in fact, they are still there, only now, they’ve made it to the White House and a large part of the Legislature and have infiltrated most of the bureaucracy and are at this very moment systematically destroying the foundations of our republic!
A bloodless coup is still a coup.
Now that I’ve got the rant at least partially out of my system, lets, for the sake of clarity, examine some definitions of Treason as they apply in this case.
Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort. No Person shall be convicted of Treason unless on the Testimony of two Witnesses to the same overt Act, or on Confession in open Court.
Cloward-Piven Stategy as pointed out by James Simpson in his article for the American Thinker titled “Barack Obama and the Strategy of Manufactured Crisis” is economic warfare designed to bring about a specific end: The Fundamental Transformation of the United States of America.
It cannot be interpreted as anything else.
1. the offense of acting to overthrow one’s government or to harm or kill its sovereign.
Barack Hussein Obama, by employing the Cloward-Piven Stategy is, by definition, attempting to overthrow the government from the inside. To remake America into something it was never intended to be, in fact, to remake it into precisely the opposite of its original intent.
2. a violation of allegiance to one’s sovereign or to one’s state.
When Obama took the oath of office, he swore an oath to defend the Constitution and almost immediately afterward proceeded to ignore it and dismantle it. He has done so from the highest position of power in the land and therefore has violated his oath of allegiance to The United States and to protect the Constitution.
3. the betrayal of a trust or confidence; breach of faith; treachery.
Obama has betrayed the trust placed in him by the people of the United States through the office of the Presidency and has attempted to conceal the enormity of his malicious intent through the use of subterfuge and deceit with the aid of many in Congress and the media.
This is not just a clash of ideology.
Barack Hussein Obama and his comrades have committed, and continue to commit, treason against the United States of America in any and every definition of the word. There has never been a better example.
These crimes must be tried and, when found guilty; the offending parties must be punished. We must do this to dissuade future leaders from following their despicable example before these actions become the norm.
We must prosecute these criminals in order to reassert our rights as Americans, as a free people and as rulers of our own destiny.
Today, we celebrate the birth of the Father of our Country, who, at this very moment is spinning in his grave at jet engine speeds while the country he helped create is dismantled and spat upon from the seat he himself once occupied.
My sincere apologies, Mr. President, we have failed you and ourselves. We have failed to keep watch. We have let the dragon in the gate. Now we must battle him in our own front yard.
God help us all.

Here’s a Halloween story for you. The judicial system in Texas has been breeding…
Wait for it…
I’m speaking of the recent development that Texas has adopted a policy of no-refusal every weekend, meaning that you are subject to forced blood test if an officer deems you intoxicated and you refuse a breathalyzer.
This is the ultimate intrusion into personal space and private property that has ever occurred. For refusing a breathalyzer, a needle will forcibly penetrate your skin, which has now become the ultimate line of demarcation between you and The State.
Subjects, your overlords demand that you give involuntary testimony in the form of a blood sample. It’s the ultimate truth serum! Except that it can be manipulated. Who trusts their government anymore? Do they really need this much control? Really? Without proof of a crime being committed a person is to be forced to testify, against his will, against himself! Before even a lawyer can be called? What happened to the Fifth Amendment? Fourth Amendment?
Do you feel like cattle yet?
Not boo, but moo.
The ACLU of Texas sees the Austin program as part of a disturbing trend occurring all over the state: Law enforcement use of search warrants to obtain blood from drunken driving suspects.Â The Austin Police Department recently announced the first â€œno refusalâ€ weekend as a pilot program which APD plans to repeat on other holiday weekends such as New Yearâ€™s Eve.
â€œUtilizing officersâ€™ time to transport and force Texas drivers who refuse a Breathalyzer test to get their blood drawn isn’t good use of police resources,â€ said Russell. â€œMoreover, it does little to help build the much-needed trust between APD and the community because inevitably there will be stories of physical abuse with implementation of this program,â€ Russell added.
Police have said the program will work this way: Motorists who fail field sobriety tests will be arrested and taken to a mobile unit equipped to give Breathalyzer exams. If suspects refuse, they will be taken to Travis County Jail where a magistrate will be on duty to issue a warrant for blood tests, administered by force if necessary.
Chemical tests don’t lie, after all [sarc]. The problem is, they can be manipulated, as we’ve seen many times such as in the recent Houston crime lab fiasco, in San Francisco, Detroit, and most recently in North Carolina. to name just a few.
Given these abuses of power, how can we give them more? Do any of us actually think they need more power? Why should they have more cameras, more Matrix? More! More! More! our government screams theyÂ need tools to protect us from ourselves.
Enough, I say. Enough!
If the State is that worried about stopping crime, control the freaking border! Oh, but wait. There’s no money in that, is there? Instead we have a racket of insurance and courts and lawyers with the MADD mothers being useful tools in the erosion of our rights. After all, who isn’t against drunk driving? If you protest the intrusion of the state you must be a law breaker or a kook!
We have met the enemy and it is a Vampire Government unrestrained by the people who gave it power.
Where is my wooden stake?
These are not mis-speaks. This is the thinking of the Obama regime.
I think this video should be viral. If you agree, then share it!
UPDATE: Beck produced this video in response to the smear tactics the left uses against Conservative candidates they are scared of such as Christine O’Donnell. They are using an off the cuff admission from Christine that she dabbled in witchcraft while a teenager in high school. Hmmm.
And now the Wiccans are getting their feelings hurt! How does that happen?
Wasn’t Mrs. Obummer introduced by a Wiccan at a fund raiser this weekend? Maybe O’Donnell should court the Wiccan vote a little more closely. ~ Nah.
Also, from the comments over at Riehl World View:
And don’t forget Obama’s first Social Secretary’s voodoo connection (which is probably how Obama got elected):
WSJ: “DesirÃ©e Glapion Rogers is the descendant of a Creole voodoo priestess named Marie Laveau Glapion…”
I’m never surprised by the depths the left will stoop to disparage an opponent. Never mind the fact that O’Donnell has since been led to Christ and is a devout Christian.
Oh. Wait. Never mind.
From Right Klik:
Pastor Broden in 2009:
I’ve just made my donation to Stephen Broden’s campaign for Congress. Please join with me and the over 80 TBF blogs and patriots in support of conservative candidates who will fight for us in the halls of Congress.
Please make a note of Ten Buck Fridays somewhere on the donation form.
then commences to whine about our supposed human rights violations, which, if there are any at all, are the direct result of progressive/socialist policies.
If we are to take this one step further we could liken Obama’s lawsuit against Arizona and the subsequent report to the UN as a drug pusher who whines to his addicted flock about not being able to stop selling them dope, all the while enjoying the lavish perks of the income.
As Peter Wehner says in his article “How Obama Sees America”
It is also evidence of a particular cast of mind, one that is eager to undermine Americaâ€™s moral standing in the world. That has been a consistent effort by the current administration. We have seen if from the president, who seems to take special delight in denigrating our country before the rest of the world, and those such as Assistant Secretary of State Michael Posner, who went out of his way to assure us that in discussions with China about human rights, the Arizona law against illegal immigration was brought up â€œup early and often. It was mentioned in the first session, and as a troubling trend in our society and an indication that we have to deal with issues of discrimination or potential discrimination, and that these are issues very much being debated in our own society.â€
If the apologist in chief were to enforce the laws on the books we would have far less of a problem to deal with. But we know that’s not about to happen.
As The Heritage Foundation points out, the Universal Periodic Review is nothing more than a ham-handed praise fest for all of the human rights abusers to pat themselves on the back, and by joining the farcical circle-jerk, Obama has given the United States her first day in the barrel.Â Â ~ Umm, well, I was paraphrasing a bit there.
Again, how UN-American of you, Obummer.
