However, I think you may have your head so far up Barak Obama's ass that you can't see straight, much less begin to understand the reasons that I and so many others are angry. I heard you on Laura Ingraham's show earlier in the week, and your arguments were so weak and ridiculous that I had to pull off the road until I was able to stop laughing and wipe the tears from my eyes. When Laura Ingraham asked you to cite specific instances of Tea Party activists and of talk-show hosts inciting hatred and violence, the best you could come up with was Michelle Bachmann, a politician, saying the government is (and I paraphrase) a thuggish criminal enterprise. Well, Mark Potok, she is right.
Where were you, Mark Potok of the Southern Poverty Law Center, when President George W. Bush was compared to Hitler, when a movie was made about his "assasination", and when scores of insanely left-wing protesters were foaming at the mouth and inciting violence against Bush? By the way, where have you been regarding Islamic terrorism? That is an institutionalized hatred of everything non-Muslim that dwarfs all of your home-grown "threats" combined.
Just so you know, Mark Potok, millions of Americans are angry with the government and it has nothing to do with the color of Barak Obama's skin. Barak Obama could be orange-skinned with purple hair and he would probably still be a left-wing Chicago politician with ideas as stale as the air in Franklin Delano Roosevelt's coffin. The left is bereft of any new ideas and keeps pushing its ancient statist agenda. When productive citizens such as myself are squeezed by the government, the left can be reliably counted on to demonize anyone (left, right, up, down, independent, etc.) who protests the Marxist agenda. The left even has stooges like you, Mark Potok, to publish reports demonizing American citizens who are guilty of nothing more than expressing constitutionally protected dissent. Stooges like you, Mark Potok, report your secret findings to other stooges, such as Janet Incompetento Napolitano, who sometimes are able to make the findings look legitimate with a shiny government seal and cover page.
I know, Mark Potok, that left-wing kooks have extremely short memories. It's a symptom of the mental illness of moonbattery. You probably don't remember this quote from almost-Chicago politician Hillary Rodham Clinton, "I'm sick and tired of people who say that if you debate and disagree with this administration, somehow you're not patriotic. We need to stand up and say we're Americans, and we have the right to debate and disagree with any administration." As a Christian, Mark Potok, I believe in forgiveness and I do forgive you for forgetting that disagreeing with the Obama administration is, in fact, patriotic.
Here are some things on which I disagree with Obama and that I am angry about:
--Said he would not raise taxes on those making under $250,000.00 a year, which was a lie. Twice raised tobacco taxes in the past fourteen months, and his Obamacare contains taxes and fines. All of these affect people who make under $250,000.00 per year.
--Obamacare. We don't need it, a majority don't want it, and we can't afford it.
--Government deficit spending and national debt. Obama is beyond Keynesian. This is just Marxist fantasy being played out in real life. Bush was bad enough for allowing deficit spending and growth of the national debt. Obama is insanely spending us into hyperinflation and bankruptcy.
--Has no effective strategy of his own for ending our military involvement in two wars after criticizing the Bush administration as a cheap ploy to get elected.
--Is ignoring the Iranian nuclear threat while abandoning Israel. I'm not Jewish, but I am a defender of Israel. Obama screwed this one up big time, and we will pay for it. Even Ed Koch agrees with me on this one.
--Is supporting Saudi Arabia becoming a nuclear state as a Sunni counter to Shiite Iran. Partially explains his hostility to Israel. Does Obama recall what happened to his spiritual predecessor, Jimmy "Dhimmi" Carter when the last Islamic Revolution took place on his watch. At least Iran did not have nukes in 1979.
--Is planning to use "financial services reform" as a political ploy to make people forget Obamacare. While financial service regulation could use some tinkering, Obama should start with reforming Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, but won't because they are too politically sensitive for him to mess with. Besides, he might have to have a romantic dinner with Barney Frank to get anything done.
--Regarding "financial services reform", don't even get me started on the Obama administrations connection with and infiltration by the big financial firms. Lawrence "Did I really tell Bill Clinton to repeal Glass-Steagall" Summers, Timothy "Turbo Tax Cheat" Geithner, and Ben "Printing Press" Bernanke are only a few that come to mind. They are part of the problem and should be fired.
--Unemployment. It's high and I believe it is headed higher. Obama has shown that the only kind of jobs he can create are government jobs. These government jobs produce nothing and are a net drain on a struggling economy.
--Has absolutely no plan for increasing domestic energy sources. Does not support increasing domestic production of oil, gas, coal-fired power plants, nuclear power plants, or anything else that will provide energy for less than $100.00 per kilowatt hour.
--Plans to tax the hell out of domestic energy usage through this "Cap and Trade" nonsense. Get ready for everything to get more expensive. Obama himself told us to get ready for our electric bills to skyrocket.
--Plans to increase his voter base by granting citizenship to millions of illegal aliens. My ancestors had to apply for entry to this country; so should everyone else. My take is that the Chicago political machine exhausted all the cemetaries of voters and got tired of driving the lunatics to the polls, so they decided to create new voters out of illegal aliens.
And there are so many reasons that I have run out of time for listing them. Let me just give you a quote from British Commentator Gerald Warner, who wrote, "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." How true.
Oh, and Mark Potok, if you happen to run into Abe Foxman of the Anti Defamation League will you tell him that he has been promoted to the rank of Oberfuhrer? Reichsfuhrer Janet Napolitano is grateful for the ADL urging the government to have a major law enforcement operation against opponents of Obamacare. Link. Soon he will be a Gruppenfuhrer just like you. Kinda makes you proud, doesn't it?
