Stranger then fiction

These two, short sentences tell you a lot about our government and our culture:

1. We are advised to NOT judge ALL Muslims by the actions of a few lunatics, but we are encouraged to judge ALL gun owners by the actions of a few lunatics. Funny how that works.

Obama’s idea of manning up

“There’s no doubt that there’s some folks who just really dislike me because they don’t like the idea of a black President,” 

“Now, the flip side of it is there are some black folks and maybe some white folks who really like me and give me the benefit of the doubt precisely because I’m a black President,” Obama added.

Mr Obama, face it, you’re a fuckup and the citizens of this country know and all the excuses in the world will not hide that. We are measuring you as a person; a human being, and you don’t measure up. All you can do is whine and make excuses.

In a way, Obama has become his ideal doppelgänger, Richard Nixon.

In a stupid way, Obama supporters have become today’s Nixonites – just as extreme and radical. In their words, they trust and believe in the government. People can deny anything, or believe anything, if they try hard enough, but that doesn’t make it true.

It’s not the person, but the quality of the person – in everything
