President Obama Thinks He Rules By Divine Right

Basically Obama’s reaction anyone asking him if maybe he should actually follow the constitution on…well…anything.

NBC news reported less than 12 hours ago that the plan Obama has for starting World War III is still in the works.

The U.S. could hit Syria with three days of missile strikes, perhaps beginning Thursday, in an attack meant more to send a message to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad than to topple him or cripple his military, senior U.S. officials told NBC News on Tuesday.

The State Department fed the growing drumbeat around the world for a military response to Syria’s suspected use of chemical weapons against rebels Aug. 21 near Damascus, saying that while the U.S. intelligence community would release a formal assessment within the week, it was already “crystal clear” that Assad’s government was responsible.

They aren’t planning to get the UN’s permission (both Bush’s did that), since Russia (an Assad ally) would never let that happen, and they may not even bother with congressional approval.  I mean, if he hasn’t bothered to get it yet, who thinks he’s going to bother now?

Not Screaming “Homophobia”: Lesbian Couple Makes an Actual Compelling Constitutional Argument

So the usual schtick for gay people in the United States these days is for them to scream some version of “Homophobic”, “Discrimination”, or something similar when society doesn’t give them what they want.

As a result when I read a headline like “Lesbian couple can’t cohabitate: Why not?” I tend to sigh and click the link, expecting a mash-up of the above terms in reaction to whatever law they don’t like.

As much as I’m not ashamed of my sexuality, I am regularly disgusted and ashamed by the majority of the “gay community”.

So when I clicked on that story I was definitely not expecting an actual decent argument that actually references the rights of parents, individual liberties, and actual constitutional rights.

Up in the Sky! It’s a Bird! It’s a Plane! No, It’s a Violation of Your Civil Liberties!

Who needs “truth, justice, and the American way” when you have SuperObama and his drones keeping an eye on you.

(Short post tonight, I’m about to fly out to DC for CPAC. I’ll report back if I see any drones on the way.)

New York City just won a minor victory against the Nanny State when a judge overturned Mayor Bloomberg’s ridiculous attempt to ban sugary beverages over 16oz. in the city that never sleeps, but those civil liberties are still a precious commodity…there and everywhere else.

One, possibly two, drones have been spotted in airspace over New York City. The first was drone was spotted on March 5th and nearly caused a head-on collision between itself and a commercial jet that was coming in for a landing at JFK International.

A second drone was, reportedly, spotted over the city on March 11th. Though this one did not scare the ever-livin’ crap out of an airplane pilot, but it was spotted only about 5 miles from LaGuardia. Not exactly a safe place for an unannounced drone to be flying.

So these drones are flying around the skies of one of our countries biggest cities and I think we’d all like to know what they are doing there?

Are these the drones that the Department of Homeland Security has equipped with technology that CNET has reported will be:

“capable of identifying a standing human being at night as likely armed or not,” meaning carrying a shotgun or rifle. They also specify “signals interception” technology that can capture communications in the frequency ranges used by mobile phones, and “direction finding” technology that can identify the locations of mobile devices or two-way radios.

- CNET

Or are they just the typical, hellfire missile equipped drones that they use overseas? Either way I’m not liking this much. Even if they aren’t going to fire a bomb and ruin my “cafe experience” as Rand Paul said recently, they are still violating my 4th amendment rights by allowing drones to intercept communications from radios and phones without a warrant and allowing the government to find my location through use of those drones.

Who has given them permission to do this? Well you get what you vote for and this is the Obama administration at work.

Don’t blame me, I voted for Romney.

Just ’cause I said it, it don’t mean that I meant it: AKA Obama Takes Political Advice from an Adele Song

“I’m not a dictator”

Obama said that only days ago.

I have news for you, saying something doesn’t make it so, actions do. Obama’s actions recently, and those his administration, are not those of a man who thinks that he has checks and balances working against him, or a constitution and bill of rights to uphold. If it walks like a dictator, talks like a dictator, and legislates like a dictator…it’s a dictator. At the very least a fledgling one.

Who cares about the war on women when our current administration waging a war on the bill of rights. They are stomping on the 1st amendment by  harassing journalists who try to ask them tough questions and hold them accountable, starting an overt war on the 2nd amendment, and haven’t given a damn about the 10th amendment (except when convenient) since Obama was sworn in.

And now the 4th and 5th amendment are taking the brunt of this administration’s disrespect to American principles.

How Obama Learned to Stop Worrying (about the Constitution) and Love the Drones

The president has taken to pretending that amendments 2, 5 and 10 do not exist. I think I should expect to start quartering soldiers any day now.

Not only that, but Obama and Al Gore have both been whining so much about people exercising their 1st amendment rights, that even CNN has taken a notice and asked them to please shut up.

Also Obama thought that we would just roll over and play dead just because he asked us not to photoshop a picture of him.

Let me think about that.

Nope, not gonna happen.

I have the sinking feeling that all of Obama’s whining about the “right wing media” is just his way of putting the 1st amendment on notice.

Ronald Reagan once said “Man is not free unless government is limited” and this has never been shown more easily than by this memo from the Justice Department (the same one that sold guns to Mexican drug cartels, yay!), uncovered by NBC news.

Tell the Mouse to Get the Cookie Himself, or Better Yet, Teach the Mouse to Bake

This wasn’t just a cute story, it taught a lesson.

When I interact on social media sites like twitter or tumblr, I see people of my generation and the generations that will follow me into becoming the leaders of this country.

Often I am inspired by genuinely intellectual young people who are intelligent, well-spoken, and share a love of freedom with myself and an understanding of the fact that the style of governance our founding fathers gave us is the key to that freedom, not this false “equality” that liberals want to sell us.

But very often I am brought face to face with an element of our future generation of leaders that depresses me. These are the people who have bought into the idea of “equality of outcome”, “wealth redistribution”, “anything goes moral relativity”, and the idea that everything bad that happens to them and every bad decision that they make, is a product of society “oppressing” them. They want the government to even things out, make sure they succeed, and hand them everything on a shiny silver platter.

Donlyn Turnbull (creator) and Tim King (contributor and co-host) at DS&P Magazine, where I also contribute and article or two on occasion, invited me on to their radio show on FTR radio last week to talk politics, Ronald Reagan, roast beef sandwiches, and Rosie O’Donnell (ewww).
