Obama surely isn't the first to use non-judicial killing - but it has never been done so openly. If this is allowed to stand - what does our children's future hold?

Lyrics:

As someday it may happen that a conflict we must start,
I've got a little list! I've got a little list!
Of America's detractors who might well be blown apart
and who'll certainly be miffed! They'll certainly be miffed!
There's the oil owning foreigners whose skin is rather brown.
I push a button then a drone will blow up half their town.
All victims who are blown up too - 'accomplices' we'll call.
No innocents - just terrorists - we'll classify them all.
But wait - the army's offensives to congress I must tell...
but not the CIA's - the drones will fit there swell!

If the Army flies the drones, then congress he must sway
so he'll hide the program deep - deep inside the CIA

There's the radical inciter, and the others of great faith,
and the Pro-Life activist - I've got him on the list!
The whistleblower Wikileaking into cyberspace.
He can't escape my fist - I've got him on the list.
The idiot who raises some objection to my plan
"The constitution guarantees due process" he'll demand
"without a trial or a judge to keep the rule of law
you cannot act as jury judge and executioner!"
I'm sad to say but, little man, your theory isn't true
due process is just this - a process that I do!

And now you're on the list! And now you're on the list!
'Cause the process that he does - that is what due process is!

And that noncompliant nuisance who is just a waste of space
the nosey journalist! I've got him on the list!
And the bitter people clinging to their guns and to their faith.
They never would be missed - our drones just do not miss.
Those who approve my killing move on foreigners alone
will see the state expatriate then hit them with a drone.
And in the end it doesn't matter what they think is true
the drones can kill you both abroad and in the homeland too.
For a nation who gives up their rights and has a monarchist
may well be on the list - you're all there on the list!

He has put us on the list! He has put us on the list!
For the tyranny we bought, will rule with an iron fist!

Awesome video!!!!! I have friends on FB watching and commenting

who never respond to political posts. Great job to the producers!!! You are having impact.

"A vote for the lesser of two evils is a vote to keep things the same", Buckminster Fuller..
A choice for liberty is always a choice for liberty.

awesome!

yup, smart, geopolitically-aware, zeitgeist-savvy comedy = always the best 'gateway Red Pill-drug'!!! .D

SNL

Has got nothing on these guys! Great satire!!

Love it!

Absolutely perfect.. This is EXACTLY the same satire the liberals have been using for years. Obviously it's worked. It's good to see Libertarians taking the funny back.

Someone has to do a Hitler

Someone has to do a Hitler parody, maybe Hitler yells at Kerry, Obama, and McCain for failing to finish the NWO for the Illuminati?

This one wasn't bad.

This is absolutely

This is absolutely hilarious....

Thanks for the laugh!

Thanks for the laugh!

just a note: flashback; the KIDS came up with the concept!

wow, I totally forgot about this, but seriously, r3VOL, be proud that we have such brilliant parents raising even more brilliant kids!

here's an old exchange with Rob Hino(josa) who said that he knew the family personally: http://www.dailypaul.com/278129#comment-2998334

My friend's children are so intelligent and knowledgeable! He's got some other great videos too he's been making with puppets!

Great content for the Grandpaul Facebook Page that his wife helps me manage, though we're not very active there. Who remembers how it started?!

didn't know you guys knew each other!

How amazingly awesome is it that R3VOL parents raise the most awesomest of awesome kids, too!

I know they're simply singing what the parent wrote, but to sing it that well??

Was that ever on the front page here on DP?

I can think of nothing better or more apt than Obamikado, in light of Rand's EPIC filibuster.

Thanks for the links, Rob!

The kids came up the concept and helped with some of the lyrics. They're extremely bright. The Rufus puppet show vids are improve I believe.

Yeah, it was featured on the front page.

WOW!

I'm stunned. Because to do a parody of a high geopolitical issue with impeccable rhythmic, rhyme-y, catchy, current-event commentary?

WOW.

And, it was suggested by the kids themselves? From the sound of their voices they seem all younger than 10!

I LOVE R3VOL! So loving the idea that, those are the kids who'll inherit the Earth, or at least be a steward to a small part of it.

Only if we had like 7 billion of them; they'll all still be equally special;o)

LOL: some R3VOL kids are trained to fight, VERY VERY WELL, since age 11! http://www.youtube.com/user/gixxerguy811/videos

In my ideal world, everyone in America would know how to run an AR or AK, Glock or M1911 and fight with it like Frank Proctor/Costa/Haley/Pincus/Howe/Lamb/Yeager et al, survive like James Wesley Rawles, Cody Lundin, Ron Hood, be as genteel and principled like Dr. Paul, learn to design, create and build like Syd Mead, and be entrepreneurial like Steve Jobs, and be brilliant philosophers like Bastiat.

Too much to ask? LOL

Well, at least on the manual of arms, fight mechanics side, they can start by watching some of these:

Classic video.

Thanks for posting.

quite welcome!

yup. quite surprised that the Second City would come out so boldly, publicly against oBUSHma, but guess you can't really be relevant social commentarian comics, if they don't actually ridicule what actually is going on. god bless their conscience!

as for the second vid, actually, I never understood why Obamikado didn't gain as much traction even among r3VOL nor here at DP; it's brilliant: lyrics and performance and production and all!

and come on! they even made a karaoke version with the classic bouncing ball and all! well, I'd LOVE to be able to do things like that with my kids...some day, when I actually have kids.D

"oBUSHma"! Best one yet!

thanks.)

actually, it's kind of a pain: I've used that so much (because it's TRUE!) that now I literally have to force myself into typing "Obama" (for more more 'neutral' headlines) because I almost always use "oBUSHma," my brains actually throw fits, if I remotely deviate from that spelling!

Yes, I've Pavloved myself into only seeing "oBUSHma" as the only legitimate spelling for Obama I mean Obama oBUSHma!

Damn it Brain, stop it!

As I said elsewhere

In China they put you in jail for stuff like this.

And for good reason. It does have an effect. Mockery is one of the most important, powerful weapons we have.

The Daily Paul continues to exist only with your support. Please contribute to the the DP's Summer 2014 Fundraiser.

Yup, indeed.

yet, 'we' still trade with the Chinese govt...

of course that's both good and 'bad.'

hm... what would Ron Paul say about that? perhaps: diplomacy, even with your supposed adversaries; progress takes time.

which makes the status quo vacuous notion of what is considered 'diplomacy' all the more tragic; it's like that, would actually require engaging with those whom one disagrees with, or one that is even considered an 'enemy.'

don't think there's any 'objective' study done, but being a student observer of human actions and behavior, I'd venture to guess that throughout history, the arts, including wicked comedy, have done more to undermine and bring down tyrannical regimes than actual political theology, statist 'diplomacy,' books, or even armies.

well, like everything man-made in the world, things outside are merely things once inside manifested; as the Gray Champ always recites Vic Hugo: an idea whose time has come cannot be stopped by any army.

and, culture (which only exists when deeply rooted-ideas percolate and manifest among the masses) eats politics and govt, any day of the week.

which is why, as hilarious, petty, weird and pathetic as it may seem to most political observers, but nevertheless, frankly the likes of Dennis Rodman actually engaging in 'diplomacy' of sorts will have far more effective influence on the direction that N. Korea will go, than the US State Dept.

Hey, in some sense it's no different than The Beatles' music finding their way into USSR and Com.Bloc even after their 1960's ban, and market forces allowing a huge fanbase to grow even midst an overt tyranny, before Paul McCartney's famed concert there, decades later.

Sad state of affairs when America's definition of diplomacy is 'we'll nuke you, or else,' and Russia, run by a former KGB head, is actually the O.G. school of diplomacy: I already have the big guns, so now, we'll actually talk, discuss, negotiate, and weigh various options.

yikes.

but seriously, don't be surprised if N. Koreans build a statue of Dennis Rodman in Pyongyang city square, once the two Koreas unify.

LOL. oh...wait, on second thought, considering the fact that their populace is already the 'we worship freaks'-type, that won't be much of a 'progress' from where they are now.

lol. well... but you get the gist: regardless, Dennis Rodman is employing more diplomacy with 'our' supposed 'enemy' than the sitting POTUS and/or 'his' State Dept.

1984 called...
