ABOUT OBAMA and other things

This woman tells it like it is

Dr. Anne Wortham is author of "The Other Side of Racism: A Philosophical Study of Black Race Consciousness" which analyzes how race consciousness is transformed into political strategies and policy issues.

Fellow Americans,

Please know: I am Black; I grew up in the segregated South. I did not vote for Barack Obama; I wrote in Ron Paul's name as my choice for president. Most importantly, I am not race conscious. I do not require a Black president to know that I am a person of worth, and that life is worth living. I do not require a Black president to love the ideal of America.

I cannot join you in your celebration. I feel no elation. There is no smile on my face. I am not jumping with joy.. There are no tears of triumph in my eyes. For such emotions and behavior to come from me, I would have to deny all that I know about the requirements of human flourishing and survival - all that I know about the history of the United States of America, all that I know about American race relations, and all that I know about Barack Obama as a politician. I would have to deny the nature of the "change" that Obama asserts has come to America.

Most importantly, I would have to abnegate my certain understanding that you have chosen to sprint down the road to serfdom that we have been on for over a century. I would have to pretend that individual liberty has no value for the success of a human life.. I would have to evade your rejection of the slender reed of capitalism on which your success and mine depend. I would have to think it somehow rational that 94 percent of the 12 million Blacks in this country voted for a man because he looks like them (that Blacks are permitted to play the race card), and that they were joined by self-declared "progressive" whites who voted for him because he doesn't look like them.

I would have to wipe my mind clean of all that I know about the kind of people who have advised and taught Barack Obama and will fill posts in his administration - political intellectuals like my former colleagues at the Harvard University's Kennedy School of Government..

I would have to believe that "fairness" is equivalent of justice. I would have to believe that a man who asks me to "go forward in a new spirit of service, in a new service of sacrifice" is speaking in my interest.. I would have to accept the premise of a man that economic prosperity comes from the "bottom up," and who arrogantly believes that he can will it into existence by the use of government force. I would have to admire a man who thinks the standard of living of the masses can be improved by destroying the most productive and the generators of wealth.

Finally, Americans, I would have to erase from my consciousness the scene of 125,000 screaming, crying, cheering people in Grant Park, Chicago irrationally chanting "Yes We Can!" Finally, I would have to wipe all memory of all the times I have heard politicians, pundits, journalists, editorialists, bloggers and intellectuals declare that capitalism is dead - and no one, including especially Alan Greenspan, objected to their assumption that the particular version of the anti-capitalistic mentality that they want to replace with their own version of anti-capitalism is anything remotely equivalent to capitalism.

So you have made history, Americans. You and your children have elected a Black man to the office of the president of the United States, the wounded giant of the world. The battle between John Wayne and Jane Fonda is over - and that Fonda won. Eugene McCarthy and George McGovern must be very happy men. Jimmie Carter, too. And the Kennedys have at last gotten their Kennedy look-a-like. The self-righteous welfare statists in the suburbs can feel warm moments of satisfaction for having elected a Black person.

So, toast yourselves: 60s countercultural radicals, 80s yuppies and 90s bourgeois bohemians.. Toast yourselves, Black America. Shout your glee Harvard, Princeton, Yale, Duke, Stanford, and Berkeley. You have elected not an individual who is qualified to be president, but a Black man who, like the pragmatist Franklin Roosevelt, promises to - Do Something! You now have someone who has picked up the baton of Lyndon Johnson's Great Society. But you have also foolishly traded your freedom and mine - what little there is left - for the chance to feel good.

There is nothing in me that can share your happy obliviousness. God Help Us all...

Quote from William F. Buckley, Jr. 1963 statement.

"Two Thousand Names. I am obliged to confess I should sooner live in a society governed by the first two thousand names in the Boston telephone directory than in a society governed by the two thousand faculty members of Harvard University."

"I will not cede more power to the state. I will not willingly cede more power to anyone, not to the state, not to General Motors, not to the CIO. I will hoard my power like a miser, resisting every effort to drain it away from me. I will then use my power, as I see fit. I mean to live my life an obedient man, but obedient to God, subservient to the wisdom of my ancestors; never to the authority of political truths arrived at yesterday at the voting booth. That is a program of sorts, is it not? It is certainly program enough to keep conservatives busy, and liberals at bay. And the nation free."
Up from Liberalism (1959)
http://en.wikiquote.org/wiki/William_F._Buckley,_Jr.

William Frank Buckley Jr. (1925- 2008) was an American author, conservative journalist and commentator based in New York City and Sharon, Connecticut. He founded the influential conservative political magazine National Review in 1955 and hosted the award-winning television show Firing Line from 1966 until 1999.

And never forget, “Humans, despite our artistic pretensions, our sophistication and many accomplishments, owe the fact of our existence to a six-inch layer of topsoil and the fact that it rains.”

Is This Too Much For Everyone To Understand?

This blowhard is not going to finish his term. There are millions that know he is not eligible and the sooner you do everything you can to inform yourself and spread the word the faster he can be exposed and unseated and the quicker we can unwind EVERY SINGLE DOCUMENT HE PUT HIS SIGNATURE ON.

IS THAT TOO HARD TO UNDERSTAND???
This Is The Issue Of The Day Quit Bitching About Him
And Help Get Rid Of Him Or Shut Up About Obama.

Orly Taitz Got Her Quo Warranto In DC Filed !!!!!!!!!

1:10-cv-00151-RCL TAITZ v. OBAMA
Royce C. Lamberth, presiding
Date filed: 01/27/2010
Date of last filing: 01/27/2010

Quo Warranto in DC will be heard by the Chief Judge Royce Lamberth DC circuit 10-cv-151RCL Taitz v Obama. It should appear on PACER later today...

http://www.constitution.org/writ/quo_warranto.htm
.
The common law writ of quo warranto has been suppressed at the federal level in the United States, and deprecated at the state level, but remains a right under the Ninth Amendment which was understood and presumed by the Founders, and which affords the only judicial remedy for violations of the Constitution by public officials and agents. Here are a few writings on the subject. Revival of the writs must be combined with reviving standing for private prosecution of public rights, subverted by the decision in Frothingham v. Mellon, 262 U.S. 447 (1923), which is discussed in an article by Steve Winter, The Metaphor of Standing and the Problem of Self-Governance.

Thanks for the update

AttilasDaughter This Is Never Going To Stop And The Quicker

everyone unites on this the better. This is OUR Constitution that is being violated and most of the people here don't even seem to give a damn.

If they manage to quash the Quo Warranto (which I think is the proper way to attack this and finally in the right venue)I think it will be time to just take to the streets in a mass demonstration. I also hear there are upwards of 40? more cases being readied but cannot find any solid proof on that. 50 cases shot down already, I just can't believe the corruptness courts anymore...

"50 cases shot down already,

"50 cases shot down already, I just can't believe the corruptness courts anymore..."
me either.
Plus the corruptness of the media in shutting down every investigation, topped by kicking out Lou Dobbs (?).
And, of course, ridiculizing Orly Taitz.

Whats Really Sad Is The Attacks On Her Sites....

she's had a couple people "befriended" her and then highjacked her websites and her paypal accounts and they have managed to keep people away from her main site: http://www.orlytaitzesq.com/

by some kind of reporting that the site is unsafe which is untrue I go on it all the time and never had a problem.
Google says it's virus free..

Google says : Warning -

But, You know what?
It is not true. totally save (surprise! LOL)
