Awaken Oh Sleeping Giant

I am very sincere when I say that if Mr. Obama wins a second term, we can say goodbye forever to the United States Constitution. There is nothing more important than to make every effort to deny this impostorous fool the chance to complete his self-assumed mandate to fundamentally transform our great nation into another also-ran 3rd-world country. His goal is to make [us|US] pay for all the criminal activity that has put us so far ahead of the rest of the world. He said it himself that he does believe nobody in the US has achieved their greatest successes themselves. If you don't believe this man is evil, you are a fool. -- Karl

Obama's Second Term Transformation Plans

The 2012 election has often been described as the most pivotal since 1860. This statement is not hyperbole. If Barack Obama is re-elected the United States will never be the same, nor will it be able to re-capture its once lofty status as the most dominant nation in the history of mankind.

The overwhelming majority of Americans do not understand that Obama's first term was dedicated to putting in place executive power to enable him and the administration to fulfill the campaign promise of "transforming America" in his second term regardless of which political party controls Congress. That is why his re-election team is virtually ignoring the plight of incumbent or prospective Democratic Party office holders.

The most significant accomplishment of Obama's first term is to make Congress irrelevant. Under the myopic and blindly loyal leadership of Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi, the Democrats have succeeded in creating an imperial and, in a second term, a potential dictatorial presidency.

During the first two years of the Obama administration when the Democrats overwhelming controlled both Houses of Congress and the media was in an Obama worshipping stupor, a myriad of laws were passed and actions taken which transferred virtually unlimited power to the executive branch.

The birth of multi-thousand page laws was not an aberration. This tactic was adopted so the bureaucracy controlled by Obama appointees would have sole discretion in interpreting vaguely written laws and enforcing thousands of pages of regulations they and not Congress would subsequently write.

For example, in the 2,700 pages of ObamaCare there are more than 2,500 references to the Secretary of Health and Human Services. There are more than 700 instances when he or she is instructed that they "shall" do something and more than 200 times when they "may" take at their sole discretion some form of regulatory action. On 139 occasions, the law mentions that the "Secretary determines." In essence one person, appointed by and reporting to the president, will be in charge of the health care of 310 million Americans once ObamaCare is fully operational in 2014.

The same is true in the 2,319 pages of the Dodd-Frank Financial Reform Act which confers nearly unlimited power on various agencies to control by fiat the nation's financial, banking and investment sectors. The bill also creates new agencies, such as the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, not subject to any oversight by Congress. This overall process was repeated numerous times with other legislation all with the intent of granting unfettered power to the executive branch controlled by Barack Obama and his radical associates.

Additionally, the Obama administration has, through its unilaterally determined rule making and regulatory powers, created laws out of whole cloth. The Environmental Protection Agency on a near daily basis issues new regulations clearly out of their purview in order to modify and change environmental laws previously passed and to impose a radical green agenda never approved by Congress. The same is true of the Energy and Interior Departments among many others.

None of these extra-constitutional actions have been challenged by Congress. The left in America knows this usurpation of power is nearly impossible to reverse unless stopped in its early stages.

It is clearly the mindset of this administration and its appointees that Congress is merely a nuisance and can be ignored after they were able to take full advantage of the useful idiots in the Democrat controlled House and Senate in 2009-2010 and the Democrat Senate in the current Congress.

Additionally, Barack Obama knows after his re-election a Republican controlled House and Senate will not be able to enact any legislation to roll back the power previously granted to the Executive Branch or usurped by them. His veto will not be overridden as there will always be at least 145 Democratic members of the House or 34 in the Senate in agreement with or intimidated by an administration more than willing to use Chicago style political tactics.

The stalemate between the Executive and Legislative Branches will inure to the benefit of Barack Obama and his fellow leftists.

The most significant power Congress has is the control of the purse-strings as all spending must be approved by them. However, once re-elected, Barack Obama, as confirmed by his willingness to do or say anything and his unscrupulous re-election tactics, would not only threaten government shutdowns but would deliberately withhold payments to those dependent on government support as a means of intimidating and forcing a Republican controlled Congress to surrender to his demands, thus neutering their ability to control the administration through spending constraints.

Further, this administration has shown contempt for the courts by ignoring various court orders, e.g. the Gulf of Mexico oil drilling moratorium, as well as stonewalling subpoenas and requests issued by Congress. The Eric Holder Justice Department has become the epitome of corruption as part of the most dishonest and deceitful administration in American history. In a second term the arrogance of Barack Obama and his minions will become more blatant as he will not have to be concerned with re-election.

Who will be there to enforce the rule of law, a Supreme Court ruling or the Constitution? Nobody; Barack Obama and his fellow-travelers will be unchallenged as they run roughshod over the American people.

Many Republicans and conservatives dissatisfied with the prospect of Mitt Romney as the nominee for president are instead focused on re-taking the House and Senate. That goal, while worthy and necessary, is meaningless unless Barack Obama is defeated. The nation is not dealing with a person of character and integrity but someone of single-minded purpose and overwhelming narcissism.Judging by his actions, words and deeds during his first term, he does not intend to work with Congress either Republican or Democrat in his second term but rather to force his radical agenda on the American people through the power he has usurped or been granted.

The governmental structure of the United States was set up by the founders in the hope that over the years only those people of high moral character and integrity would assume the reins of power. However, knowing that was not always possible, they dispersed power over three distinct and independent branches as a check on each other.

What they could not imagine is the surrender and abdication of its constitutional duty by the preeminent governmental branch, the Congress, to a chief executive devoid of any character or integrity coupled with a judiciary essentially powerless to enforce the law when the chief executive ignores them.

Conservatives, Libertarians, the Republican Party and Mitt Romney must come to grips with this moment in time and their historical role in denying Barack Obama and his minions their ultimate goal. All resources must be directed at that end-game and not merely controlling Congress and the various committee chairmanships.

2012 Summer Olympics and NBC's alleged broadcast

I love the Olympics. I guess I always have. I say "guess" because I don't know for sure. You see, I wasn't really there when I was a kid.

Is that a confusing comment? Maybe it is. However, if you knew me, you'd realize it's true. I don't know much about the things going on around me. Did I say "don't"? Okay, I meant "didn't". Really.

But once again, which a person with A.D.D. can say often, I digress.

When I was little, I don't think I knew I had siblings. Oh, I knew there were other people in the house where I lived. I also knew how to find my way home. I had friends, too, and we often did things we shouldn't have done. We were boys. Boys always do things they never tell their parents. If you have a boy, ask. My siblings knew I was there. They knew they had a little brother. Of course they did. After all, it was all about me all the time every day of every year, until I got about 18. Oh, and I had a little sister, and of course, she was spoiled rotten. I wasn't. No I Wasn't!

But, during my 19th year (yes, 19th because at the end of that year, I turned 19 but was still 18 throughout the duration. Do the math. First birthday, 0, 2nd birthday, 1, etc. The first birthday was the day I was born, duh.), I went through a change. I started understanding that Christ died for me. I knew that there were girls, and if I was to have any like me, I better learn how to keep other people happy.

You might ask me, "How does the sacrifice Christ made relate to girls?" It's really quite simple. Christ died that I might live. I can't have a girl love me, unless I give all I have, short of my life, to keep her happy. I also learned that with some, that's just not enough. They just can't seem to be kept happy. They need your blood, sweat and tears, too. Of course, I learned to give that, too, and still it wasn't enough for some of them. Oh well. Their loss.

Now back to the Olympics, or rather, NBC's alleged coverage thereof.


Anyone who has ever watched MSNBC (or as Rush Limbaugh rightly calls them, PMS-NBC), knows they are unabashed progressives who think anyone who isn't is a "hold onto their guns and god" losers. Of course they are the minority, but while they have viewers, they will continue in their arrogance.

As I've watched the Summer Olympics, I'm well beyond disappointed in their coverage. They can't do a single sport without making stupid comments that show they have no respect for their viewers' intelligence. Well, either that or they have none of their own, and aren't ashamed to put it on display.

One very intelligent comment was something to the effect, speaking of a gymnast when she was very young, "and all her friends where just kids!" No, really?! Her friends that were her own age, were kids? Holy cow, how could that be? Just kids? I thought maybe they were adults, like she was...

Okay, I've left the uh... best, for last.

The videography. I can't call it that without feeling like I've insulted videographers.

How many nose-pore-close shots of the ONE athlete they have decided to focus on do we have to see before we feel claustophobic? Really NBC. Get off it already! AND, the athlete they have chosen to focus on, with a very slight mention of the other athletes in the event, often doesn't even win!

It would be a little different if the athlete they were focusing on was even from the United States. I mean, aren't they an American network? Aren't they? Honestly, I think they work for either the United Nations, or the International Olympic Organizing Committee, or even just (the official website of the olympic movement) and really have no allegiance for the country that gives them the freedom to be morons.

Okay, be honest. Aren't you sick of looking up athlete's noses, or at their butt when they bend over? I wonder how clever the engineers in the trucks think they are for leaving those shots onscreen so long?

If they broadcast the Olympics next time, I'll not watch. It's the least I can do.

About the olympics themselves. I really need to leave my competitiveness at home (figuratively speaking because I always watch them at home) because though I love watching the non-sports sports, such as diving and gymnastics, I still hate the judging. I know enough to see when a participant has been given poor marks, and I still believe that the judges mark participants from non-socialist countries lower than those from the countries that are communist. Maybe that's just me.

Of course, I also notice when a participant from one of the non-free countries are marked below their performance. I don't like unfairness no matter who gets the short end of judging. I do like the new scoring they use in gymnastics. It's much better than the "10" point scoring of the past. If they had the current scoring back in the iron curtain/eastern bloc days, Nadia Comaneci would not have scored a perfect "10". That's my belief anyway. I saw a video of her uneven parallel bar routine and I saw several deductions.

The problem with any "judged" sport is simply this: the judges get carried away with the enthusiasm of the spectators. I know how that feels because I was a high school football and basketball official for 14 and 10 years, respectively. Because there are rules and I knew them almost cold, I wasn't influenced as much as if I had been a gymnastics judge, which I could have been. I learned how to judge, but didn't get, or go looking for, the opportunity.

Before I leave the judged sports, back to NBC. Why in the world when an American wins the 10 meter platform gold medal, don't they show the medal ceremony? And even when they have shown the ceremony, why haven't they shown more than one person getting awarded their medal? Do they think we don't care to see the whole ceremony? I am so disappointed I can't stand it. This is fresh on my mind because I just watched David Boudia win the gold medal, and NBC didn't show the medal ceremony. I'm convinced they hate the anthem, and more, the country itself.

It's my opinion, and I've seen significant agreement in the world, that the judged sports aren't really sports because you can't ever know who actually wins. The winners are based on nonobjective judgments made by silly, fallible humans. In real sports, there's a score, or a measured outcome. We know who wins a footrace because they are the first one across the finish line. We know who wins a football, hockey, basketball, or baseball game because they scored more.

On a different topic, but back to the olympics. I wonder when a broadcasting company will have the honesty, and morality, to show how wicked and vile the olympics has become. Did you know the olympic people provide condoms for the athletes in the village? See this article and you'll find out more than you wanted to know about the debauchery found there. Yes, debauchery. The Romans had nothing on these folks.

I'm sorry to end on a negative thought. Life is like that, isn't it... (not a question)

Back to what I started with about me as a kid:  I will be who I will be, and will do what I will do because I'm me, and I [finally] know who I am. It took years, but I finally know. I worry about those around me who don't know themselves and have to rely on the opinions of those around them, and also worry if those opinions aren't positive, or don't make them feel good.

And again, I'm Karl...
