The Obama Presidency - Here Comes Socialism

Recommended Posts

Wow, this is a scary article - I sure hope that 90% of it is not true! It's well written, however, so I'm going to use it as a reference to see what happens with these issues during Obama's administration.

More political crap. :doh:

 

So are we going to post EVERY piece of Republican :censored: proaganda printed from now on because there is a Democratic Presidency , effectively recycling and rehashing every tired topic from the last two years of polical campainging? Give us a break. Obama might do this and Obama might do that. It gets very very tiring.

 

Dick Morris is the same Republican crooked unprincipled bastard who got fired from the Bill Clinton campaign for letting a prostitute listen in on the conversations of the President of the United States.

 

This is nothing more than political gossip.

 

This is a car site not the Jerry Springer Show.

IF we did post EVERY piece of Republican :censored: propaganda printed from now on, how would that be any different then what we have been getting for the last eight years. Hmmmm, the tables have turned, huh. Not trying to upset anyone, just stating facts.

Mark -

 

Unfortunately - it may still be another generation or two before all of the knuckle-dragging Neanderthals are truly silenced. The good news is - look how far we've come in 40 years. Imagine what the next 40 will bring.

You're right - and future generations will look back and see who the real knuckle-dragging neanderthals were.

Ahhh - the blowhards of bull$hit...

 

Anybody catch the Hannity interview with Rush? Unbelievable. To hear Hannity talk about how Obama is reversing our "success" with Bush policy. What a riot! Rush wants to see Obama fail - and thinks all of those on the right who wish Obama well and to succeed are "caving".

 

If there was ever an argument to the world that capitalism is a failure and that they'd be better off with socialism - it was the Bush policy of an uncontrolled, unregulated, free-market. We now have the answer to the question - "what will happen when the market is let to do as it will?" The world is being brought to its knees because of these ill-conceived fiscal policies. It will be a Democratic Obama administration that will SAVE capitalism for the world. Can you see the irony? A Republican administration is responsible for almost the very demise of capitalism - and it will be a Democrat that will save it. We're not heading towards socialism - we're preventing the world from going there.

Here's a little more to chew on. We have the freedom of speech in this country. Though one can't cry "fire" in a theatre, or incite a riot, and not be prosecuted. Collectively, Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, the right wing blogosphere, and simply Fox News in general yell "fire" all day long. They spew fear mongering 24x7x365. I think they should all be called to task and prosecuted for inciting fear in their viewing public.

 

The "liberal media" as so-called by the right, is a misnomer. CNN, NBC, CBS, etc. are simply the media. The mainstream media. The trusted media. The only real partisan media is Faux News, etc. I just can't believe what you guys hear and you think of yourselves as informed. You couldn't be more misguided and misinformed.

WOW. You really don't see it, do you...

 

Of course, I'm not kidding. I'm completely serious. What amazes me is how it's not so clear. I suppose all of the FUD those on the right hear on a daily basis ultimately does have an impact - a completely brain-washed audience.

 

How bad do things need to get before you realize? It appears there are those that simply no longer have the capacity to comprehend. That's unfortunate, and sad.

Oh, give it up!

 

Now, at long last is Dick Morris all you have left of the Republican party to drag out? The prostitute guy, is this family values now? Please tell me that you have something more! The Republican party is in disarray and sinking further and further into political oblivion. Please tell me they haven't pinned their hopes to Dick Morris! :hysterical:

I did not read the Dick Morris article but have listened to him in the past. For those now attacking Dick Morris they should remember that he was a life long democrat. He helped Bill and Hillary through numerous campaigns in Arkansas and the presidency. Yes he did convert to being a conservative and, in his own words, for two reasons. #1 was 9/11. #2- he is Jewish. He stated he realized what would happen to all Jews after 9/11 if we did not respond as we did. For that reason he supported President Bush and Sen. McCain. Before attacking Dick Morris why not wait and see how many of his predictions become true?

Saying that capitalism is a failure is like saying "I wrecked my Corvette, so Chevrolet is a failure". There was a failure of the schmucks on Wall street and in the banking system to exercise common sense and restraint. That does not mean that capitalism is a failure. Capitalism is what made this country great and it is the ONLY thing that has any chance of rescuing us from the current mess we are in. The government can not do it. They simply do not have the intelligence or the common sense as can easily be seen by looking at the new proposed "stimulus" package and all the non productive pork contained therein. Our quick slide into Socialism is what will ultimately destroy this country which is what the dear leader means when he talks about change. He is talking about destroying our capitalist system and replacing it with socialism. He chooses his words carefully and is intentionally vague so that the simpletons (that's you and me) don't catch on until it's too late, but that IS the agenda. Of course the Liberals will just say it isn't so and that we have been watching Rush Limbaugh too much and that we are brainwashed etc. etc. I for one have never once watched Rush Limbaugh.

aaaggghhh. Typical - you misconstrue and misunderstand. You take only half the quote - and get it out of context. It's the deregulation and lack of oversight that Bush was pushing that has brought capitalism in this world to its knees. We now need to reverse the Bush policies to save capitalism for us and the world. The good news - we now have the right people and talent to handle the situation. Though repairing 8 years of ignorance and idiocy will not be easy.

Incorrect - look at the root cause of our problems. All of this started with the Democratic party principles of giving loans (credit and mortgages) to people that were not truly qualified, with the belief that everyone must have the same things whether truly earned, eligible, or not... Look at Afirmative Action, Freddie Mac, Fanny Mae and out-of-control Union (who are major Dem. party supporters) wages and benefits and you have the real causes of the problems were facing.

 

Now, here we go again - more extreme liberal government intervention and control of our country, taxpayers and economy is blossoming once again at the hands of Obama. This is going to be a "fun" ride. Our children and grandchildren will be paying the price for all these bailouts for years and years.

 

Still, I'll try to look on the bright side...after all, it took Carter to get us Reagan. But don't even get me started on Carter (now THERES a good President), the catalyst for the current terrorist mess....

I wonder when the American people are going to wake up, put partisanship aside and realize that Democrats and Republicans alike are a bunch of self serving crooked bastards. They are all corrupted with greed and power. Neither side could give a $hit about this country or the people.

Dems are for the poor and lazy that don't want to work, not the working middle class, like perhaps they use to be many years ago. They buy votes with government handouts to try to keep themselves in power. Republicans are just as fckd up in different ways.

 

A few years ago i delivered brick to a new home under construction. The owner is a Democrat, who was running for governor of our state at the time. This house was very large and extravagant, easily a 3 to 5 million dollar house in a very upscale area. My house would have fit in the garage with room to spare. When i went inside there was a bunch of "non English speaking Mexicans" hanging drywall.

 

I am a Teamster and labor unions always back the Democrats. Needless to say that candidate didn't get my vote. I spread the word, and a lot of people that i know that usually vote Democrat got pi$$ed and didn't vote for this candidate either.

 

This instance makes my point, they are all self serving bastards and couldn't care less about you or me. All they want is our vote. Until you get the big money out of it, nothing is going to change. The day any politician takes office he is bought and paid for by his biggest campaign contributors, and that's the bottom line. I have voted Democrat, Republican, and Independent in my 56 years on this planet. I follow no party blindly. I am not a Republican nor a Democrat, i am an AMERICAN, and whats right is right and whats wrong is wrong.

There are some aspects of the Team Shelby forum I didn't miss when the server was down. These political posts don't accomplish anything but discord. I know i don't have to read them and I usually don't, but still I wish they would just go away.

The problem is, there are parts of the forum's that each member may prefer would go away. But if that were the case, they may be not much left :)

IMHO, I disagree with your position that these threads do not accomplish anything but discord. Limiting what you talk about also limits what you are able to learn about/from someone else. I value being able to read what another member thinks, (or doesn't think), when they post. It would be arrogant/narrow-minded of me to think that I am right all of the time, so I like to hear differing opinions as long as they are posted in a respectful manner. Therein lies the problem for some members. Some members are incapable of either defending their thought processes or clearly stating them, so they resort to insulting behavior.
