From The People's Cube: "My administration is the only thing between you and the pitchforks," Barack Obama told the CEOs of the world's most powerful financial institutions on March 27, when they cited competition for talent in an international market as justification for paying higher salaries to their employees. To get the full flavor of the president's implication we must remember that in Obama's code language, the word "pitchforks" means "a vigorous campaign of threats and intimidation perpetrated by Obama-sponsored ACORN and union activists in conjunction with theatrical outrage from government officials, amplified by the complicit media, and coordinated from one political center, which has now moved to the White House.

Here is their description of Progressives and their agenda:

The purpose of our Progressive movement is to instill enormous guilt among wealth creators, causing them to give their money to us voluntarily. Think of guilt as secondary taxation. While the government extracts the first round of money by taxing a limited number of activities by wealth creators (with the help of a mind-numbing tax code), the imposition of guilt allows us to extract the remaining money in virtually unlimited amounts by associating guilt with the broadest range of activities - from what you eat to how big your toilet tank is. Most of you are guilty merely for breathing air, and the number of victims suffering from your noxious CO2 exhaust is unlimited - from the whole planet Earth to endangered microscopic communities of bacteria that thrive collectively on dead bodies and whose existence you are jeopardizing by selfishly staying alive.

UK paper headline, the Telegraph, on Obama's snub of Normandy: Barack Obama rejects Normandy trip to avoid offending Germany

An American official familiar with the negotiations said that President Obama never had any intention of making the stop over. "It wasn't going to happen. We went through the motions to placate President Sarkozy but giving special treatment to France was not on our agenda. During this trip, we wanted to maintain a balance between the British, [the] German[s], and France."

[Our President, on this tour of foreign nations, found time to visit Turkey, bow down in subservience to the Saudi King, announce that America, but not himself, is arrogant, announce that America is not a Christian country, said we must deeply respect Muslims who have done so much to shape our country, and in general apologized for America to everyone he met. But - he he didn't want to "offend" Germany by honoring America's part in freeing Europe from Hitler - so, he deeply offends our military, their families, and America.]

From Gerald Warner of the UK Telegraph: President Barack Obama has recently completed the most successful foreign policy tour since Napoleon's retreat from Moscow. You name it, he blew it. What was his big deal economic programme that he was determined to drive through the G20 summit? Another massive stimulus package, globally funded and co-ordinated. Did he achieve it? Not so as you'd notice.

Barack Obama in Prague

Then came the dramatic bit, the authentic West Wing script, with the President wakened in the middle of the night in Prague to be told that Kim Jong-il had just launched a Taepodong-2 missile. America had Aegis destroyers tracking the missile and could have shot it down. But Uncle Sam had a sterner reprisal in store for l'il ole Kim (as Dame Edna might call him): a multi-megaton strike of Obama hot air.

"Rules must be binding," declared Obama, referring to the fact that Kim had just breached UN Resolutions 1695 and 1718. "Violations must be punished." (Sounds ominous.) "Words must mean something." (Why, Barack? They never did before, for you - as a cursory glance at your many speeches will show.)

President Pantywaist is hopping mad and he has a strategy to cut Kim down to size: he is going to slice $1.4bn off America's missile defence programme, presumably on the calculation that Kim would feel it unsporting to hit a sitting duck, so that will spoil his fun.

Watch out, France and Co, there is a new surrender monkey on the block and, over the next four years, he will spectacularly sell out the interests of the West with every kind of liberal-delusionist initiative on nuclear disarmament and sitting down to negotiate with any power freak who wants to buy time to get a good ICBM fix on San Francisco, or wherever. If you thought the world was a tad unsafe with Dubya around, just wait until President Pantywaist gets into his stride.

Obama and Mob Rule
by Floyd and Mary Beth Brown

Barack Obama is ignoring the words of the Democratic Party's founder, Thomas Jefferson, who warned, "A democracy is nothing more than mob rule, where fifty-one percent of the people may take away the rights of the other forty-nine."

Obama didn't recently come to his desire to redistribute income. In an interview given to Chicago Public Radio in 2001, then-State Sen. Obama said "The Supreme Court never ventured into the issues of redistribution of wealth and sort of more basic issues of political and economic justice in this society. To that extent, as radical as I think people try to characterize the Warren Court, it wasn't that radical. It didn't break free from the essential constraints that were placed by the Founding Fathers in the Constitution, at least as it's been interpreted, and the Warren Court interpreted in the same way, that generally the Constitution is a charter of negative liberties."

“Any fourth grade history student knows socialism has failed in every country, at every time in history,” said Putin of Russia. “President Obama and his fellow Democrats are either idiots or deliberately trying to destroy their own economy.”

Rep. Pam Richardson of Framingham wants the Massachusetts Democratic Party to advocate voting rights for illegal aliens.

Hillary - on piracy: a must see.... [I'd sure like to know what is so very funny about piracy!]

COLUMBUS, Ohio – The sky is still dark when David Waun begins to barbeque 400 lbs. of meat. "I just didn't want to drive around any more with a bumper sticker that says 'We support the troops' without actually doing something," Waun said. He barbeques with some regularity for National Guard members....

"A repairman was willing to patch a leaky roof for a deployed soldier's wife, and a woman who volunteered to care for dogs and cats while Guard members spent weekends at drill training. A generous accountant even offered to prepare taxes for hundreds of harried service member.So many people think that what they have to offer is not what we need," said Michele Gire, a mother of three Marines who spearheaded the town hall effort. "And they're so wrong. There's so much they can do."

"A lot of these organizations want to help," Wayt said. "They just don't know the pathway to do it."

Barack the Pied Piper

IN HONOR OF TAX DAY TEA PARTIES NATIONWIDE: [this came to me via email. If anyone knows the author, please let me know......
The Pied Piper and a New Acronym

There was a Pied Piper who said “We live in the greatest country in the
world. Help me change it!” *And the people said, “Change is good!”

Then he said, “We are going to tax the rich fat-cats,”…… *And the people
said “Sock it to them!”

“and redistribute their wealth.” *And the people said, “Show me the money!”
And then he said, “Redistribution of wealth is good for everybody” *And
Joe the plumber said, are you kidding me?” And Joe’s personal records were
hacked and publicized. *And one lone reporter asked, “Isn’t that Marxist
policy?” And she was banished from the kingdom! Then someone asked,
“With no foreign relations experience, how will you deal with radical

And the Pied Piper said, “Simple. I’ll sit down and talk with them and show
them how nice we really are and they’ll forget that they ever wanted to kill
us all!”
Then the Pied Piper said, “I’ll give 95% of you lower taxes.” *And one,
lone voice said, “But 40% of us don’t pay ANY taxes.”

So the Pied Piper said, “Then I’ll give you some of the taxes the fat-cats
pay!” *And the people said, “Show me the money!”

Then the Pied Piper said, “I’ll tax your Capital Gains when you sell your
homes!” *And the people yawned and the slumping housing market collapsed.

And he said, “I’ll mandate employer- funded health care for EVERY worker and
raise the minimum wage.” *And the people said, “Gim’me some of that!”

Then he said, “I’ll penalize employers who ship jobs overseas.” *And the
people said, “Where’s my rebate check?”

Then the Pied Piper actually said, “I’ll bankrupt the coal industry and
electricity rates will skyrocket!” *And the people said, “Coal is dirty,
coal is evil, no more coal! But we don’t care for that part about higher
electric rates.”

So the Pied Piper said, “Not to worry. If your rebate isn’t enough to cover
your expenses, we’ll bail you out. Just sign up with ACORN and your troubles
are over!” Then he said, “Illegal immigrants feel scorned and slighted. Let’s
grant them amnesty, Social Security, free education, free lunches, free
medical care, bi-lingual signs and guaranteed housing.”

*And the people said, “Ole`! Bravo!” And they made him King!

And so it came to pass that employers, facing spiraling costs and
ever-higher taxes, raised their prices and laid off workers. Others simply
gave up and went out of business and the economy slowed even further. Then
the Pied Piper said, “I am the Messiah and I’m here to save you! We’ll just
print more money so everyone will have enough!” But our foreign trading
partners said, “Wait a minute. Your dollar isn’t worth what it was. You’ll
have to pay more.”

*And the people said, “Wait a minute. That’s not fair!”

And the world said, “Neither are these other, idiotic programs you’ve
embraced. You’ve become a Socialist state and a second-rate power. Now you’ll
play by our rules!”

*And the people said, “What have we done?”

But it was too late.
