Making His Mark

obama, obama jokes, inauguration, MLK, bible, stilton jarlsberg, hope and change, hope n' change

Yes, everyone is getting "wee-wee'ed up" with planning for Barack Hussein Obama's second inauguration next week, and every detail is getting keen attention - unlike any policy decisions which happened during the president's first term.

As one of the festive highlights, the most racist and race-baiting president of modern times will take the oath of office with his hand placed on the Bible of Republican and civil rights icon Martin Luther King Jr who, if alive today, would surely raise his face to the heavens and say, "why the hell does the president have a predator drone circling me?"

Because Obama repudiates the legacy of Dr. King with every action he takes, and wants a colorblind society about as much as he wants to pay for his own vacations.

Which perhaps explains why the ceremony in which Barry uses King's Bible will be a complete charade: because his actual swearing in will take place 24 hours earlier in a private ceremony using a Bible from Michelle's family which is probably not a Koran.

But instead of going back to work on Monday, all sworn in and promising to defend the Constitution, Barry wants the pomp and circumstance of a huge and expensive public spectacle which has no legal validity whatsoever.

One in which he can trade on the legacy of Dr. King (despite having a cabinet which is stunningly lacking in diversity) and hobnob with people of all races, creeds, and long as they're exceedingly famous and stinking rich ("special VIP access" rewards are granted to individuals and evil corporations based on the size of their bribes, er, contributions beginning at $10,000 and costing as much as $1 million for complete access to the president's balls. Which we presume are Inaugural Balls, but you never know.)

Ambassador Chris Stevens is not expected to attend.

Another good one Stilt.
A part of me keeps hoping that one morning, real soon, I'll wake up and find on the news that there was MAJOR fraud discovered in the 2012 election and they need to hold up the inauguration. I know it won't happen but I have to have some dream to hold on to.

TrickyRicky said...

I can no longer get all wee-wee'd up over the endless depredations of this evil poseur. From his "we don't have a spending problem" insolence to his "I won" imperious arrogance, to abandoning so much sacrifice of life and treasure in his running for the exits in Iraq and Afghanistan, to his consious dividing of the American people by race and class, to....well you get the idea. It all just makes me numb. My only dream is that we, meaning both myself and my country will somehow survive the full blown assault of this unleashed, lame duck Marxist swine.

Now I have to go to work so I can pay for all the crap that is destroying this greatest nation on Earth. Yip Yip Yahoo.

Chuck said...

I weep.

Colby said...

I'll be glued to the TV that day in breathless anticipation.... of a giant meteor completely destroying Washington DC! Sigh... like WMD says, I can dream, can't I?

Things I’d rather do than watch obama’s re-coronation:

1) Listen to just one more liberal tell me how great the economy is doing.
2) Watch Rosie O’Donnell reruns.
3) Eat dinner at Jeffrey Dahmer’s house.
4) Have Joe Biden on my Quiz Bowl team.
5) Play a rousing game of “naked Twister” with Barney Frank.
6) Have my nuts tazed.
7) Play mumblety peg with Stevie Wonder.
8) Share a hot tub with Al Gore.
9) Notice my doctor chugging a 40 just before my brain surgery.
10) Tell Ed Shultz what a great journalist he is.

John the Econ said...

Oh, I wouldn't say that Obama disagrees with everything Lincoln did. For example, I'm certain that Obama looks at ideas like declaring martial law and suspending writs of habeas corpus with great favor. He only needs the right crisis to try them out.

After all, gun sales aren't going through the roof simply because the economy is doing so wonderful.

WMD said...

@Colby, you left one off your list, how about playing hide the banana with a near-sighted nun with a bullwhip and a bottle of gin.

Jim Hlavac said...

Your analysis is a bit off, "everyone" is not wee-weed up -- I wouldn't want to see the president's balls for free - never mind pay $10,000 or more. It's a party for the 1%. If all goes well with "global warming" (20 degrees under the palms this AM, blah,) it'll be 10 degrees, he'll speak for an hour when the teleprompter freezes into a loop. Back at his employee housing (Aka, the White House,) he'll eat cold cherries in milk ... oh wait, that's a different president, long ago, without a teleprompter, never mind. Still, at least with all those millionaires buying face time at the balls of the president, we know just where he can round up the richest Americans and shake them down for a few billion. That should cover government spending till next Tuesday, when they shall go back to borrowing for cheeseburgers. But surely these 1% will leave behind oodles of money and not a measly 10 grand or even a paltry million. Other than that, if a liar swears on the Bible does he need some sort of rubber shoes for then lightning comes down, and, does he still lie? Deep questions for our times of every deepening morass.

Earl said...

Is it 5pm yet?

American Cowboy said...

"Making His Mark"

Doesn't Revelations refer to that mark?

Stilton Jarlsberg said...

@WMD- I can't imagine anything or anyone being allowed to delay Barry's inauguration. Still, as dreams go, yours is a lovely one.

@TrickyRicky- I'm feeling numb too, but as the Crash Test Dummies sing, I "keep on moving and twitching" because I refuse to accept the alternative. (And yes, you can follow that link to the song)

@Chuck- Direct, to the point, and entirely appropriate.

@Colby- Thank you, sir, for giving me the first laugh of the day!

@John the Econ- But "experts" (you can see them on MSNBC!) are saying that the dramatic recent rise in gun sales is actually due to the NRA somehow magically revving up the citizenry, rather than people reacting to threats from Obama to rip up the 2nd Amendment.

And you're right that Barry would love to impose martial law given half a chance - so maybe he is a little Lincolnesque, even if he isn't much of a theatergoer.

@WMD- No, no...Colby was actually listing things that wouldn't be fun. But perhaps I've said too much.

@Jim Hlavac- I think my favorite phrase in your commentary is "face time at the balls of the president." I may well have to spin that off into another cartoon!

Apart from that, you're right that the inauguration is simply a party for the 1% - and a naked grab for money and influence.

By the way, if Obama was tragically felled by an Act of God when his hand touched the Bible, I'd have to reconsider my religious beliefs and start attending church.

@Earl- Good news! There was a 5 pm yesterday, so we're still good to keep drinking!

Stilton Jarlsberg said...

@American Cowboy- I'm pretty sure that "mark" is accurately described there. Speaking of which, have you seen the signature of possible new Treasury Secretary Jack Lew? It's a series of loopity-loops with a nice "666" string in the middle - soon to be marked on every bit of paper currency printed by the government.

It's No Gouda said...

Stilton, If Obama were struck down by an "Act of God" when he touched the Bible, it would only show that the Almighty has a VERY perverse sense of humor as that would give us President Biden. Oh yeah, and if Slow Joe was standing close enough to become "collateral damage", we'd wind up with President Pelosi. Niether of those scenarios bears thinking about without SERIOUS alcoholic fortification! Better the devil we know.

It's No Gouda said...

Oooops, my bad, I was having a "flashback" and thought Pelosi was still Speaker of the House. If Obama and Biden were "offed" by the Almighty John Boehner would become President.

Jim Hlavac said...

Stilt, feel free to use any line of mine to further your aims. This constitutes a blanket permission for all I say here to be used by you. (in case you were worrying, hehehe.)

(The rest of you got to pay -- that's capitalism you know.)

John the Econ said...

If the "fact check" meme was for real, they'd be having a field day with today's presser. My lie & hypocrisy meter is currently off-scale. Unfortunately, "fact checking" is really just an opportunity for the MSM to editorialize in the name of "news".

He's oh so concerned about the deficit now, but wants elimination of the debt ceiling. It's all Congress's fault.

No mention of the budget he submitted which increased spending, but lots of talk about all the money we're going to be saving in health care.

Colby said...

If you decide to use Jim H's suggestion for an upcoming cartoon, I would suggest you buy a very tiny pencil for the "artwork." I think I have posted before... one of his nuts is the size of a mustard seed, and the other is just a little bitty thing. And isn't it ironic that our choice is to bend over and grab the ankles, or pay $10k to participate in "face" time.

@It's No Gouda,
This is why my preference is a giant meteor rather than lightning. I believe the "house cleaning" would be a bit more thorough. I think this would be a great opportunity to move the capital to Texas and make Stilton President.

It's No Gouda said...

Colby: What a "capital" idea!!!

Colby said...

Unrelated news....
I signed one of those "secede from the union" petitions just for kicks. I got a response today:

1) Millions of people petitioned, but his royal highness, Barack Hussein Obama could not be bothered to respond himself (too busy golfing and vacationing?). Some guy I have never heard of, Jon Carson, wrote the response.
2) Carson cites The Constitution and the framer’s desire for a “more perfect union” as reason to disregard the petitions. If this administration thinks The Constitution is so great, then why are they trying so hard to sidestep the parts of it they don’t like, such as the 1st, 2nd and 10th Ammendments?
3) The response brags about being a way for people to voice opinions and be a part of policy, but 48% of opinions are contrary to the Obama agenda and are therefore ignored.

If anybody is interested, I'll post the whole thing, but it's not exactly a shocker.

txGreg said...

OK... since we addressed the liberal ultra-rich and their (lack of) extra contributions to the tax system up above, I can kinda claim this is on-topic.

Did anyone else know that some professional sports leagues claim to be non-profit organizations? Many, many bad words exploded in my brain upon reading that (Breitbart) article.

John the Econ said...

Sure did @txGreg. And they got more gifts in the "fiscal cliff" deal too. And in many cities, taxpayers are still being asked to fund new cathedrals to rich owners and athletes, replacing ones that are barely a few decades old.

Insane, isn't it? Can't wait until these same people run all of health care, eh?

SusieBee said...

I hope the disgusted ghost of Dr. King haunts Barry for the next four's bad enough that MLK was assasinated, but now this? It's like adding insult to injury!

I wonder how much Barry's campaign had to pay MLK's heirs for the use of his Bible?

Grafton Cheddar said...

Colby, you'll probably be seeing the IRS audit notice in the mail next week. And better pack up for ReEducation Week at Gitmo.

Necron99 said...

@Grafton Cheddar, reporting to GitMo is not far from the mark... Food for thought;

This is a message to all Americans including those of you who are serving in the military and law enforcement. America is losing all of the freedoms that define it as America. The American dream will come to an end unless we draw the line.
Everyone of you is going to have to make a decision. Obama is moving to become a dictator. In order to do that, Americans must be disarmed. Our government is preparing legislation to have firm arms confiscated beginning with semi-automatic rifles and military grade hand guns. I'm asking you to become public and vocal. I'm asking you to publicly state with me that IF anyone in any level of government uses physical force to remove our firearms, that you execute them as terrorists who are trying to overthrow our form of government and turn America into a police state modeled after Nazi Germany and Communist Russia. In this video I'm going to lay out the historical facts that show where are county is headed. Specifically, I'm going to compare the United States to the rise and fall of Nazi Germany so you can the undeniable comparisons.

What was the Nazi process of mass murder? 20 Steps
1. The started by attacking the Jews in the media. DEMONIZING CONSTITUTIONALISTS
2. Then passing legislation restricting their rights. PATRIOT ACT
3. Restricting them from certain jobs. FACISM
4. Establishing a national police force to enforce the new laws. DHS & TSA. Nazis used the SA or Storm Troopers.
5. Propaganda of terrorism to suspend freedom. Al-Qaeda and GUN OWNERS
6. Government indoctrination through media. RACE CARD & GUN BUY BACK
7. Destroying them economically. BAILOUTS DERIVATIVES BANKSTERS
8. Random beatings and arrests. TSA & NDAA, police violence
9. Disarming them. YOU ARE HERE.
10. Ending freedom speech.
11. Moving you out of your home.
12. Confiscating your property.
13. Put you in a government neighborhood or ghetto
14. Transporting you to a permanent work camp.
15. Separate you from your family. Males and females.
16. Feed you poisonous food.
17. Forced labor and starvation.
18. Ovens and mass executions.
19. Citizen/Jewish Kappos
20. Eugenics and experimentation.

Remember folks, "An unconstitutional law is not a law."

Sorry, here's the link:

Stilton Jarlsberg said...

@It's No Gouda- The Lord works in mysterious ways. Although He does so with more transparency than Obama does.

@Jim Hlavac- Thank you! I already used the line in an additional Hope n' Change cartoon over on Facebook.

@John the Econ- Every syllable out of Barry's mouth today spiked my blood pressure. And for the record, Barry's already told Paul Ryan that he's not going to bother to submit a budget (as required by law) in early February. I'd call him a lying bastard, only that would be disrespectful.

@Colby- Actually I used a graphic of Chris Matthews (MSNBC) fantasizing about "face time at the president's balls." I have to admit, it was enjoyable cathartic.

And while the meteor idea has appeal, you do not want me as president. I think we need someone who is smarter and less angry than me in that important position. Though I wouldn't mind being made Secretary of Sarcasm.

Regarding the petition to secede, it's not surprising that you got a line of BS from one of Barry's henchmen. Personally, every time I think of my home state of Texas seceding, it gives me a pleasant glow. Although that could also be my cheap whiskey.

@txGreg- What the...?! I hadn't seen that article, but now that I have it seems like money on the table. Let's end those tax breaks post haste and give them to people who really need them. Like Internet cartoonists (hey, I'm demonstrably non-profit!)

@John the Econ- You're missing the economy of multi-purposing those stadiums during the off-season for Obamacare. It will involve the old, the infirm, and hungry lions...and sell a buttload of tickets.

@SusieBee- I'm guessing that Barry threatened to reveal embarrassing info from Dr. King's FBI files unless he was loaned the Bible.

Seriously, it sickens me to think of Obama trading on Dr. King's legacy when he has done so much to cripple black Americans in the past four years.

@Grafton Cheddar- I assume we're all headed for Gitmo or someplace similar.

@Necron99- As you know, I've got a policy against any intimations of violence on this site. But that being said, this is a serious topic worthy of serious discussion - and backed by historical lessons.

I hope (beyond hope) that Barry doesn't actually try to start seizing weapons. But if he does, the Constitution makes it very clear that he will be in the wrong and that he has violated (yet again) his oath of office.

True Americans must stand with the Constitution, and defend it in direct proportion to whatever threat is presented to it. And that includes, per the founders' explicit directions, the use of firearms for their personal protection.

PRY said...

What happened to Angry Hoosier Dad? Anyone know?

Necron99 said...

@Dr. J, I have never meant to violate the rules of the forum, and would never advocate violence as a first recourse to solving problems. Only as a means of defense, and then, only as a means to neutralize violence being done to the innocent law abiding person.

Stilton Jarlsberg said...

@PRY- I haven't seen a post from him in a bit. Hope he sees these comments and joins in the fray again!

@Necron99- No harm, no foul, and in point of fact I absolutely agree with you. I just thought it was worth clarifying the rules - not for you, but for others. Sadly, this is a conversation that we all need to have - calmly and thoughtfully - owing to the excesses of this administration.

Necron99 said...

@Dr. J, I know you're not a particularly religious man... But, "Amen Brother, Amen"!

American Cowboy said...

Unless I am missing something it would appear that New York has begun the confiscation of firearms by means of a newly passed law yesterday. All firearms that hold more than seven rounds are now or soon will be illegal. So much for the semi-auto handguns or even the old standby "plinking" rifle Ruger 10/22. Owners will have one year to sell them out of state, yet another provision of that law is that it will not be legal to sell them to anyone other than an immediate family member. How will that work if you do not have a FFL to sell across state lines? This is not a foot-in-the-door, it is the whole damned body.

Stilton Jarlsberg said...

@Necron99- Hey, at this point I'm at least in the choir!

@American Cowboy- I'm hoping that legal challenges will be issued ASAP. By the way, I just read an article about a wounded warrior (now a Purple Heart recipient) who was shot eleven times and survived. So New Yorkers had better hope that they're never attacked by someone like him, who is only getting really pissed off after you've shot your seventh and final bullet.

Colby said...

@American Cowboy,
That is excellent news! You watch, there will be no more gun crime in New York! I'm already packing up my family up to move there. Thank God there is now somewhere to go to not worry about being shot more than 7 times by some crazed lunatic who bought a gun legally. After that 7th shot, he'll be out of ammo.

Roseanne Rosannadanna said...

What's with this whole salt weapon thing. How can you hurt somebody with a salt weapon; wouldn't it just fall apart?

Stilton Jarlsberg said...

@Colby- If you only rack up 7 innocent victims, it's considered "mass murder lite."

@Roseanne Rosannadanna- The problem with a salt weapon is that someone might pepper a crowd with bullets.

Pete(Detroit) said...

American Cowboy - yet another reason to be glad I don't live in NY - my 8 and 9 shot revolvers would have to go. Or I would. Glad I don't have to move - yet...

Colby said...

Yeah, and when you go to prison, all the other mass murderers will make fun of you. "Only SEVEN?! What are you, a sissy?!"

Crimony... after a year or two of the 7 bullet limit and people still getting slaughtered like cattle, NY will pass the Barney Fife One Bullet law. They'll also be down to thimble sized soft drinks by then, too.

American Cowboy said...

Well I just checked my 63 year old Winchester '94. The years of use have "softened" the tube magazine spring. I can, if I chose to, load seven shells in the tube and one in the chamber. I guess I am now officially a criminal, in the eyes of New York state. I must say that fact makes me PROUD. Thanks to all of you who are AMERICAN PATRIOTS.

Stilton Jarlsberg said...

@Pete(Detroit)- There are so many reasons to be grateful not to live in New York that I hardly no where to begin.

@Colby- Not only will the Barney Fife law restrict you to one bullet, you'll have to keep it in a buttoned shirt pocket.

@American Cowboy- Interesting that it's only that last shell that makes you a criminal, isn't it?
