The following headline appeared in the Los Angeles Times 6/16/2009:

Obama to propose strict new regulation of financial industry
Michael Sohn / Associated Press

President Obama is expected to unveil a plan that would give the government new powers to seize key companies whose failure jeopardizes the financial system, well as creation of a watchdog agency to look out for consumers' interests.

Don't look now, but here it comes.

Forget Socialism...that's become a given.

Now we are hurdling down the hill at breakneck speed toward Despotism!

All the while, President BO and Associates are reassuring us, "Oh, no...we're not Socialists! We're just trying to help you poor slobs who can't take care of yourselves. Not to worry, we're doing all of this for your own good."

That's exactly what the Germans were told by Adolf Hitler; what the Italians were told by Mussolini, what the Russians were told by Stalin.

And now we're being told.

But we're not supposed to look beyond the rhetoric.

No sir!

Hide your eyes!

Bury your heads in the sand or wherever else it is your custom to stick your head when you want to turn a blind eye to the truth.

Soon the government of the United States of America will own and/or control every aspect of your life, as they almost do already.

And you'll go merrily along saying, "What, me worry?"

Whatever you do...don't look as this happens.

No peeking now, while we become Peking (now known as Beijing).

I used to think that no one man could bring down this country. FDR couldn't do it. Johnson couldn't do it. Clinton couldn't do it. Not even Carter could do it. But, I've changed my mind. Obama truly is The One. And, I just have to question, not only the intelligence, but the sanity of anyone who still supports him.

LR, a phrase just popped into my head when I read your comment. Obama's not alone. He's not just one man. It has been & is the 'delusion of collusion'. Frightening, very frightening, friends.

Shhhhh, do not say anything either, or you just might be labeled a terrorist.

How about the regulations that the Constitution places on the Federal Government? What about those?

Mark said...

Obama has voiced his opinion that the Constitution is a flawed document, and is a collection of negatives which limit what the Federal government can do, but doesn't address what the Federal government can do.

Therefore, as far as Obama is concerned he is above the Constitution, and is not subject to it's precepts.

So, he appoints "Czars" who are not under Congressional law, and can create edicts meant to circumvent the Congress and the Constitution, the purpose of which is to take control of the free enterprise system.

It is imperative that we contact our representatives and demand that articles of impeachment be brought against him, before he enacts laws that will prevent his impeachment. Trust me. If he thinks he can get away with it, he will.

He can take his new regulations and stick 'em where the sun don't shine. America is not going to continue to stand for this ongoing nonsense.

PCC, I agree with your first sentiment, but I must sadly say I am afraid your 2nd one doesn't seem to be happening. I so very much want to be wrong, though...
