"If Only the Czar Knew:" Interesting Discussion at Riccochet
— Ace

At Ricochet.

Beginning at around 27:45 and going forward to about 35:00, there are three interesting points:

1. Obama talks as if he's not president. For example, in his Major Foreign Policy Distraction, he complained that force-feeding hunger-striking jihadis at Guantanamo didn't represent us at our best. He seems to have forgotten that with a single phone call he could order the force-feeding to stop.

2. The liberals have internalized this bizarre narrative, and always omit Obama from negative stories, as if it is literally, physically impossible that Obama might be part of the problem.

3. This hasn't been talked about much -- and I keep wanting to talk about it. A few weeks ago, Obama told the Washington Post that he often daydreams that he'd like to go "Full Bullworth" on the country. Now, Bullworth was a movie about a suicidal politician who decided to just Tell The People The Truth before he died. His truth, you won't be surprised to learn, was all left-wing cant that of course are obviously true but no one ever says. (Except the left, constantly.)

Consider all that is admitted there:

1. Obama is confessing he's not telling the people "The Truth" at the moment.

2. Obama is virtually confessing that his idea of the truth -- long hidden from the people -- is a series of left-wing "Truth Bombs" that he'd like to drop on us but of course he can't.

Um, why not? Oh right, because it would hurt him politically and that's the only thing that matters.

I've never seen "Bulworth," but question:  was he LITERALLY suicidal, or merely politically suicidal?

 

Because if    it was the former, that would be another point to add to your list.

14 Yesterday, upon the stair,
I met a man who wasn’t there
He wasn’t there again today
I wish, I wish he’d go away...

When I came home last night at three
The man was waiting there for me
But when I looked around the hall
I couldn’t see him there at all!
Go away, go away, don’t you come back any more!
Go away, go away, and please don’t slam the door... (slam!)

Last night I saw upon the stair
A little man who wasn’t there
He wasn’t there again today
Oh, how I wish he’d go away

Bulworth didn't really shut down his political opposition abusing the police, taxing, and regulatory power of the federal government in that movie did he?

 

I remember a hot Halle Berry, limos, nightclubs, and I think a pimp hat, but no abuse of government power.

22 The one common denominator to all facets of the Executive Branch? The Won. He is the root of it all no matter how the Left and the MFM (BIRM) try to shield him.

That the abuse of power is happening so ubiquitously in so many agencies means the single most culpable agent in all of this mess is Obama himself.

58 Ace....great post. And I keep trying to post something that makes sense of this condition about Obama without resorting to cheap pyscho babble about him having Daddy issues.....but I can't. Obama has Daddy issues. He seeks adoration over substance. He loves the trappings of office but not the responsibility that goes with it. He cares more about his approval than his policies. Oh sure, he is happy that his little press minions describe him as a policy wonk. That satisfies that portion of his personality that seeks the approval of academic wonks who consider themselves intellectually superior to the rest of us. And while he can prattle on and on about policy, he has no idea how to implement it. Which is why he outsources most of the legislative leg work to Reid and Pelosi. And even when he does engage (see, e.g. the Grand Bargain) he can't complete the deal because he is afraid that those whose approval he seeks will be unhappy and goes one step too far.

"I killed more people tonight than I have fingers on my hand. I shot them in cold blood and enjoyed every minute of it. I pumped slugs in the nastiest bunch of bastards you ever saw and here I am calmer than I’ve ever been, and happy too. They were Communists, Lee.

No they fail to admit there are requirements for the job which even exceed  Obama's capacity or temerity to defy. It would be outrageously irresponsible, not to mention dangerous to our country.

People already suspect that Obama has anti-democratic leanings and impulses. In fact, he's already shown an extraordinarily, some might say, historic proclivity towards imperialistic action. Gosh, look at the landscape littered with Executive Orders, anti-constitutional appointments and his crowning achievement- "Obamacare". It is a panoply of despotic actions.

Obama only has limits because there is not enough time to invoke the massive revocation of liberty and implementation of socialism he wishes to undertake. That would stop it faster then it will otherwise be since it exposes more readily its flaws, tyrannical premise and destructive ends.

Um, why not? Oh right, because it would hurt him politically and that's the only thing that matters.

 

 

--------------------

 

OK, but I'm not all that sure it would hurt him politically.  His guardians in the MSM probably think substantially the same thing, and if they don't, well...are they *really* going to turn on him and admit they were -wrong- in pushing him on us?

 

So what's the horrible thing he could say that would make the FSA and the MSM disown him?  I can't really think of anything that would do it.

Which prompts the question: why has the GOP been so timid when it comes to exploiting this behavior?

 

You'd think the race card would have expired by now.  But not so much when it comes to the GOP.

 

Also, they don't want to get off the DC gravy train.

 

Burn it down and hang them all.

Where can Obama go "politically" from here?

 

To hear it, only his innermost circle likes him; nobody else can stand to be around him any longer than they have to.

 

It's not like he's going to run for Senate again, and to think that he would be nominated to sit on SCOTUS is laughable - the man didn't write anything while he was president of Harvard Law Review, and NOBODY (of any merit)  would hire him out of college.

 

All he's got to look forward to are dinners where he is a featured speaker - and he doesn't even stick around to eat dinner at those functions.

Obama has Daddy issues. He seeks adoration over substance. He loves the
trappings of office but not the responsibility that goes with it. He
cares more about his approval than his policies.


 

I agree that he has some Daddy issues but  I would characterize them more as abandonment  issues with the specific daddy issue triggered when his mommy booted his ass back to Hawaii and kept his little sister.

104 OT:

Someone apparently hacked the Twitter feed and homepage of the White House press corps, the reporters who cover President Obama, and belittled some of them as "untrustworthy" for attending an off-the-record meeting with Attorney General Eric Holder about government spying on reporters.

"RESOLVED: Any Member of any 'News' Organization that met with AG Holder today is no longer to be trusted as a valid news source," the hacker wrote. "UNTRUSTWORTHY: New Yorker, Washington Post, Politico, New York Daily News, Wall Street Journal—attended Thursday's meeting with Holder."

111 The Bullworth thing is just a trope to the left to "not despair, I still am a believer." And there might be something else, though I wouldn't think so--but, since I raised it--is there any reason Obama would need to show his folks he has "damn the torpedoes, full steam agead" integrity? Speaking of telling us the "truth" for our own good, I have a sneaking suspicion that the Romney guy telling us yesterday on NRO that "self-deportation" isn't feasible and cost Romney--a sorta out-of-the-blue post--and the just announced return of Mr. Romney to the national conversation--well, maybe the amnesty crowd called for reinforcements, and took anything they could get. Maybe, maybe not. Time will tell.

Obama is also lazy and boring and the sum of his wisdom was gained by things he overheard at a cocktail party years ago.

Let us also not forget that he's fucking dishonest.  He ran to the right of Mccain(!) on many issues in 2008, issues that he lied his ass off about.

What was really unique and groundbreaking  about Bulworth is that it took a rich,  accomplished white man to be immersed in black urban  culture to really learn true wisdom about the human condition, and to share that wisdom with the ignorant fucking guttersnipe  ebonics  that he learned from his  hoodrat spirit-guides.

 

Amazing concept that really put a unique twist  on the fish-out-of-water  theme.  I don't think I've ever seen that  done before or since.  Too controversial.  Too daring.

This is hardly a new phenomenon. He's still blaming Bush for anything under the sun. He realizes that's getting old so He's now moved on to rogue low level employees. Except when things go right.

Case in point. Bin Laden. TFG was up all night drinking coffee with rolled up sleeves, directing, ordering, monitoring and getting things done.

Benghazi. Uh, tragic, the STATE DEPT. and MILITARY did all they could do, tragic etc.

IRS Scandal. He's Charlie Effing Gibson, just heard about it, low level employees etc.

There's really only been two things in his entire time in office he can crow about. Bin Laden and OCare. The rest is all crap. there's been nothing. Bin Laden was good, OCare is HIS baby. And it's falling apart rapidly, the Dems know this is a train wreck and are already trying to blame obstructionist Republicans. Owebama's picked up on it to. Sure the press is butthurt right now but they'll be back to slurp more up. If the current Pres was a Rep it would be a tsunami of wall to wall bad press and protests and howls from the left. So again this isn't new. it's just that half the population ignores it willingly.

Broader pathology...

Government Interests... Government RIGHTS (when only a person can have rights, a government has powers, and limitations, that WE give it, not the creator).

 

But when we personify it... we act as if we do not control it... its some big Force we can't fight...

 

Obama has just taken it to the logical conclusion, where the Head of Government, says he does not CONTROL Government.... and people believe him.

194 A common phrase heard by the German people in the 30's and 40's .. "Surely if The Fuehrer knew, he'd put a stop to this" If you can find it, I recommend Hitler’s Last Courier, by Armin Lehmann. He’s just some guy who grew up almost fully within Hitler’s rise to power, knowing nothing else. Throughout the book he talks about how Hitler said this, and the media said that, and teachers agreed. When the government controls the educational system, there isn’t much chance of children learning to question the government. And when the media also presents the government view of things, there really isn’t any way out.

Instincts tell me that Obama doesn't want to stop playing president. What's stopping him from running for another term? If you say the Constitutional amendment, you're a fool. The U.S. Constitution is disregarded by the powers that be.

Sure, they'll be a court case. But that'll be after the 2016 election. The only hurdle Obama needs to get over is getting on all the states' ballots that he won in 2012 -- which he can.

311 "In our environment, what's Obama's Bulworth? That he wants to take all the money away from rich people and dole it out, then sic the government on anyone who dares complain?"

That's a pretty radical oversimplification of the Obama/Chicago model.

The Obama/Chicago model isn't "take all the money away from rich people".

It's "take all the money away from the enemy's rich people, leaving alone the rich people who are friendly to you and/or have paid the protection racket dues."

I laugh cynically every time Obama launches into a rant about how the "1%" should "pay their fair share in taxes".

Then he gets on Air Force One and comes out here to Commiefornia and goes to dinner at the homes of Google's top executives. Those people are 1%ers, to be sure, and they engage in routine and massive scheming and maneuvering to slash both Google's corporate tax burden and their own individual tax burdens.

Obama says nothing about any of this. He's just there to collect the fat checks.

318 36 year old vet finds a guy breaking into his home. Yells that he's going to fire a warning shot. Fires a shot INTO THE GROUND. And he's guilty of a felony. Yes, it is a felony to fire a "warning shot." At least, it is here in Texas. Yes, that's stupid. The law would rather you try to kill a thief than simply prove that you're willing to kill him. Here's the deal, though: it actually makes sense, if you look at it through the right (quasi-liberal) view. The idea is that if you have time to fire a "warning shot" you're obviously not enough in danger to need to fire a shot at all- thus reckless discharge of a weapon. So, yes, the law advocates killing over warning.

OT, but ARRGH.

 

UK Man living on benefits killed wife of 32 years after being overcome by 'hopelessness'

 

UK Telegraph: http://tiny.cc/skoyxw

 

Michael Cole, 56, was overcome by "chronic feelings of hopelessness" and directed his anger towards Susan, 53, Exeter Crown Court heard.

 

The couple, who had no children, had both lost their jobs and and faced the prospect of having their home being repossessed when their savings ran out.

 

Cole had tried to convince his wife to make a suicide pact but she refused.

 

He killed her with a hammer and knife and remained with her body at their home in Torquay for two days before calling the police on March 13 to confess.

 

Cole then tried to take his own life but survived. ..

Even firing it into the ground: it ricochets and hits someone else (or their property)- he's liable for it. (Again- in Texas). In Texas, you are liable for every bullet that you fire. That means firing it in anything other than active self-defense (that is: at an attacker), or at an approved location (a gun range, your own rural land, whatever) is a crime (I think it's a felony). Even firing in active self-defense, you'd better hope none of your bullets miss and damage someone else's person or property.

Here’s the but about him: He makes no money. He has ambitions, and he’s smart, but will likely only bring a middle-class income at best. I have an OK job and I’m self-sufficient. Now here’s the but about me: I’m really, really pretty. My whole life people have told me I could get any man I want, meaning a rich man, and are shocked that I’m engaged to my fiancé, nice though he is. I’ve never dated a rich man, but it does make me curious. So part of me thinks I’m squandering my good looks on this poor man, and the other part of me thinks that I’m so shallow that I don’t even deserve him or anyone else.

The vigilantes were described as a motley crew of Homeowners and Concerned Citizens, as well as neo-Nazi activists and football hooligans.

In the Stockholm suburb of Tumba, the police DECIDED to abandon Their EARLIER non-intervention policy as a large group of police officers rounded up and dispersed a group of vigilantes trying to fend off rioters.

The decision to round up vigilantes while, According To Stockholm Chief of Police Mats Löfving , “doing as little as possible” to stop rioters, met with a wave of protests in various social media and on the Internet. Representatives of some vigilante groups contacted Free Times to give their view of last night’s events.

Farenheit is a scientific standard you bloody ignoramuses.  

They don't actually love science as science - they're loving science as a religion, and they show their religious bona fides by sharing inane posts in the name of Science.

Hey, I actually have something to ask about, which should guarantee a new thread as soon as I type it out...

 

Saw an ad here on the main page for ATT home wireless phone system.

 

It uses the wireless network but connects to your home phones.

 

Wouldn't work if the network goes down, but is sooo much cheaper than paying for a normal land line...$10 or $20 a month, depending on how you set it up.

 

Thoughts?

If I fire "at him" and miss- it's all good (so long as I didn't hurt anyone else or damage property). But if I deliberately shoot into the ground- Felony!!! BC- I'm not disagreeing that the outcome was stupid, just pointing out that (however stupid) it's still legit.

412 Old friend of mine was also in the "no warning shots" school of thought.

If he heard intruder noises outside in the dark of night, he would let out their 150lb Rottwolf cross to investigate the situation.

I was on genial terms with that animal. Were I a stranger and thus not well regarded by it? And if it objected firmly to my being on its territory in the dark?

Whoa. I would MUCH MUCH rather have a warning shot fired near me.

I don't have time to keep a dog in the manner that civilized people keep dogs (with lots of walks, play and exercise), so I can't copy this system. More's the pity.

419 I think that one thing that frustrates posters here and other places is that they feel there is nothing that they personally can do to stop what they see happening.

I would like to suggest that there is something we can do about it.

If I understand correctly - under federal law people operating under color of authority to deprive citizens of their constitutional rights may be personally sued for doing so.

I would like to suggest that "a swarm of hornets" set of lawsuits be used against such people. In other words if each of us filed proper federal personal lawsuits individually against people like the US Attorney for Tennessee and his conspiratorial FBI agent for attempting to violate our free speech rights in the sum of say $10,000 in damages. I think it would be a very effective action to use against them.

I am not talking about frivolous law suits which could be dismissed but rather properly filed and worded serious suits citing the proper sections of the federal code of regulations as their authorizing basis.

Consider what this does to the defendants facing hundreds or thousands of lawsuits. Their legal expenses alone would be astronomical. Failure to answer the suits would result in summary judgments against them.

For the lawyers here: What sort of attorney would I consult to file such a suit?

Enough of these kind of lawsuits would take Obama's thug enforcers away from him - leaving him powerless to be anything but just another asshole politician and no longer self appointed King of the USSA.

425 Clam Roll vs. Lobster Roll, discuss. (I'm willing my vacation to already be here.) Neither. Super-thin pork chops pounded even thinner, then rolled around a filling of feta cheese and basil pesto. The rolls then dredged in bread crumbs, and lightly pan-fried (just to set the the bread crumbs), then baked in a 350 oven for ~12 minutes. Serve with baked sweet potato (with cinnamon-honey butter) and drink of choice. Nice leafy salad is also a solid call.

Already have ATT for local and cells, soooo...

 

Get good cell reception in the house, which might be an issue for some people.

 

I have a lot of older neighbors, so I figure someone nearby has a land line if something happens that takes down the cell network.

 

Wonder what the sound quality is? We have a land line for a couple reasons, one of which is that I hate having conversations on my cell phone...

Those systems work well enough, from what I've heard, although if you're dissatisfied with the voice quality on ATT they won't help with that.  If you want to get that feature and keep your landline, Panasonic makes a cordless phone + answering machine system where the phones on it will ring for either your landline or your cell, which could be handy.

Posted by: Ian S. at May 31, 2013 10:10 AM (B/VB5)

Yes, Ian, I'm about to buy that and use our current answering machine/handsets for target practice.

 

It works for incoming calls to your cell phone.
