I no longer watch puppet

I no longer watch puppet shows. I am a big boy now.

“Any man who thinks he can be happy and prosperous by letting the government take care of him better take a closer look at the American Indian.” ― Henry Ford.

Paraphrase of Obama's speech today for those who missed it:

"Part of America's foreign policy strategy is to make more countries dependent on America, because we obviously know how to run and police the world, so after we blow up other people's land with drones and kill civilians with drones, we will rebuild their land with a "democracy" because it is in our national security to occupy their space with over 40 USA bases... oh yeah, the internet is to blame for "home-grown terrorism," so let's tap that 24/7, retain all data and communications between private individuals, and censor any information deemed "necessary" to protect national security. Also, anyone who works for me and "leaks" any unlawful or unethical practices that the federal government partakes in will be prosecuted to the full extent of the law. Finally, I tried to close Gitmo, but Congress prevented me from doing it because they took away my power. Then a lady stood up and told me like it was and reminded me that I actually do have the full power to close Gitmo today if I wanted, but I will ramble about why I won't close it. But the lady is right, "so I'll cut her some slack." I will even praise the First Amendment for a second (even though I did violate it recently to chill the AP and other journalists from doing their job). I will continue with my speech as planned about how awesome American people are because we are determined. God Bless Everyone."

Good synopsis

He told us all about how america is great because of the rules it has to stop people like him from doing exactly what he has been doing. Yea constitution.

Just open the box and see

As always, the emperor is

As always, the emperor is speaking, and speaking now, for purely political reasons.

He and his party are worried that "the folks" are waking up to the concept of blow back (where have we heard THAT before?), and that a rash of new "liberty leaning" GOPers might outflank the Dems, the "peace party", in the upcoming midterms.

Can't have that... gotta fool "the folks" now into thinking that that red stuff all over the emperor's hands ain't blood, just finger paint from his time spent with all those children he so cares for.
