Remember the story of Nero?
Claudius Caesar Augustus Germanicus
Nero’s rule is often associated with tyranny and extravagance. He is known for many executions, including those of his mother and the probable murder by poison of his stepbrother,
He is infamously known as the Emperor who “fiddled while Rome burned” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nero
Well we have a President who is ruling through tyranny and extravagance, he has ordered the murder of American citizens, he throws lavish parties for his supporters and spends most of his time playing golf or playing politics raising money for his reelection.
He has embarrassed America, using slang language, and singing Al Green
Obama is singing “fiddling” as America burns.
President Barrack Hussein Obama is the most dangerous person in the world.
I do not say this lightly, but his recent actions leave no other conclusion. He consistently is working to destroy Americas standing in the world. He and Leon Panetta are doing their best to decimate our military through manpower and funding cuts when the world is more dangerous than ever.
He is appeasing the Palestinians’, negotiating with the Taliban and consistently insulting and disrespecting Israel. He is ignoring the wars and genocide in Africa.
At home he is encouraging high oil prices by shutting down expansion of the oil industry and not allowing us to build a pipeline that will immediately create over 20,000 jobs. Why? Simple, it is to support his green agenda. He does not care if Americans need to pay $5 a gallon for gas as it is good for electric cars that he has funded. His ideology has clouded his decision making. He is no longer the President for all, he is kowtowing to his keepers and his financial base.
He is using his justice dept to promote his anti gun stance and embarrass the State of Arizona by shipping guns to the drug cartels in Mexico and aiding them in bringing drugs back into the U.S.
He encourages illegal aliens, even though they bring with them tremendous social costs and crime.
The world see’s America as weak, and that is what Obama wants. His goal is to eliminate America’s standing in the world. He wants us to be on par with the third world nations. He will do this by destroying our economy, by increasing our debt, by devaluing the dollar. All of these things he has done.
Now he has started ignoring the Constitution with illegal appointments, and stating the HE is making a law that says all healthcare plans MUST pay for contraception.
He will go down in history as the worst President in America’s history.
He will also run the most destructive negative campaign against the Republican nominee that we have ever seen. And you know what? The media will be there to support him.

Progressive Insurance, the name should say it all. They are the one with the annoying “Flo” as their spokes model. Now I am not annoyed that they complained when Foxnews ran their paid advertisements on the Glen Beck show. (Evidently they do not want customers who believe in free speech, and showing their liberal bias.) They have that right. But they are doing something which should scare the hell out of every freedom loving American. This is what set off this rant.
Progressive has a new promotion called “Snapshot”. In order to get cheaper rates, you take a small device and plug it into your vehicles onboard computer. Here it records ALL your driving habits. How far you go, when you go, and how you drive. This is exactly what the government wants all of us to do. They want us to trade our civil liberties for the “convenience” of the government.
The US Dept of Transportation has been asking for this system to track our daily movements. They want to use this information to track where we go, what we do, and more importantly tax us based on our usage. They want to tax drivers MORE based on the amount of mileage they log on the tracking device. They also want to tax us more based on our driving habits.
For a free society we must not allow this to progress. Companies like progressive are just stalking horses for the government, and if we give in, we all lose.
I for one am tired of our government telling me, what to eat, what I can and cannot do in my private life. Why does the government care if I am slightly overweight? How often I go to the Dr?
Now they want to restrict the internet and have a kill switch if people do not say what they agree with, if we have political dissent.
They want the right to quash political speech on the internet. DHS is now looking for “domestic terrorists” on the “Battlefield” they claim exists here in the United States homeland, and say they have the right to detain those they “feel” are a threat. (Who really is a domestic terrorist? You me?) I cannot drive on the interstate without being stopped at a “checkpoint” and being interrogated by the Federal Government as to whether I am an American citizen.
The Federal government regulates how I can buy health insurance, they restrict me from opening new businesses with rules, regulations and more taxes. They want to regualate my guns as they do not trust me to be responsible, even though the constitution gives me the right to own them. The government intrudes in all aspects of our lives, and I am ready to draw the line. I do not need a nanny or another mother. (My mother does a great job of keeping her eyes on me and expressing her opinion, thank you very much!) I do not want someone looking over my shoulder and telling me when I am doing something wrong that hurts nobody else.
Let me ask you something, what is your price to give up your freedom? Can you be bought for a 30% discount in your insurance rate? If you can be bought for that, what other rights will you sell? What is the price of freedom in 2012?
I don’t know about you, but my relatives fought and died for our freedom. I am not willing to give up my freedom to a “progressive” car insurance company or a “progressive” political party or to bureaucrats in any form of government, who thinks they know what is better for me than I do. I am not willing to “install” a tracking device in my car in order to give the government the ability to follow me day in and day out. It is bad enough that they track all our movements via our cell phone, but keep your hands off my car.
The next time you see “Flo” promoting their “Usage” device take a moment and think about what they are really asking you to do. Is it worth it?

After watching our President proclaim that our future wars will be fought with Drones, computers and in space my mind flashed back to an episode of Star Trek. “A Taste of Armageddon” was first aired in 1967 which really was the start of the Vietnam involvement for most Americans. In this episode the Enterprise comes across two planets that have been at war for a long time. However they cannot find any external signs of it. It turns out the people have “evolved” (Progressives) and no longer fight wars in “uncivilized” fashion. All their war is now fought by computer. If you are determined to be “killed” by the computer simulation you are expected to report to “disintegration” booths where you will be eliminated. The Enterprise is told not to interfere, but of course they soon become a casualty of war and are expected to turn themselves in for ‘disintegration”. To sum it up Capt. Kirk and Spock destroy the computers and tells the progressive leaders of the planets that they have to deal with it. Peace then breaks out.
I feel that his is what President Obama imagines war to be in the future. Clean, logical. He envisions a war that can be run by computer, where he would not have to risk sending men and women into battle.
The fear is, will this lead to our loss of humanity? Do we want future wars where a President just pushes buttons and people are killed? What will war be if you take the human element out of it? Why not just have the computers take over? Now some may say “Why not, then our soldiers will not need to die”. But we cannot forget that the loss of human life in fighting a war is something that restrains us from fighting wars. If there is no more risk, why not just send out robots for ethnic cleansing when we do not agree with the policies of a country?
President Obama lives in a Hollywood / Star Trek world, with a blurred line between reality and fantasy. He has almost destroyed our economy by insisting that we all go green. He is willing to destroy our traditional, industry and economy because he thinks that we must all live with green technology now, even though the technology is not yet economically feasible or able to meet our energy needs.
Now he is willing to destroy the greatest military in the world to satisfy his ego and make us “equal” with the rest of the world. His star wars vision is just a fantasy as I hope we do not go down the path as envisioned by the writers of Star Trek years ago.
He is the most dangerous man in the world today as he thinks he has all the answers, he thinks himself as an emperor, but as we know from our childhood fables, often the Emperor has no clothes.

Today I was appalled with something I heard from the Pentagon. President Obama stated that even though he was cutting 400,000 troops, we could still fight a war using cyber, space and robotic means.
This man has a huge ego and is showing his true colors, he is also the most dangerous President in our nation’s history. Iran is on the verge of deploying nuclear weapons. North Korea is rattling their sabers, Russia is destabilizing with Putin making threats on European missile defense and their own weapons. At the same time China is rapidly expanding their military, Navy and cyberwar capabilities.
There has been a war raging in the pentagon between those that know disaster is looming and the doves / progressives who blindly follow Obama and Leon Panetta.
Leon Panetta is no more qualified to run the CIA or the DOD than this old one eyed Pirate!
Yes he served in the Army for 2 years in 1963! But other than that he was a Democratic politician / advisor. In this Pirates opinion he did untold damage to the covert ability of the CIA and is now carrying Obamas water to dismantle our military. Watching him get in front of the cameras today and spin Obama’s Pentagon reduction plan was an insult to all those who serve or have served in the defense of this nation.
Having just exited Iraq and with rumors of troop buildups in Israel, this is not the time to show weakness to the world. But that is what Obama is doing. The problem is the wolves. The wolves pick out the weak and prey on them. Obame is telling the world we are weak, he apologizes. He is inviting them to attack us. A good example is when our classified unmanned RQ-170 Sentinel drone was “capthred” by Iran. President Obama could have sent in the Seals to recover it, he did not. He could have had another drone fire on it to destroy the classified drone from being dissected by our enmies, he did not. He could have tasked a cruise missile to destroy it also, nope. He could have used the power of the United States of America to DEMAND the return of our valuable asset, but he did not.
“We’ve asked for it back. We’ll see how the Iranians respond,” Obama said at a news conference. Obama said he wouldn’t comment further “on intelligence matters that are classified.”
He ASKED for it back, maybe he said pretty please, I do not know, but many Iranian Generals were heard laughing at our impotent leader.
The only thing our enemies respect is power and force. President Obama refuses to project a strong image of America. He believes in appeasement unless it fits his own political agenda.
It seems to this Pirate that Obama will continue to be an apologist, and actually wants this once great nation to suffer defeat, and for the Muslim nation to expand and rule the world. This will fit his socialist agenda. In his eyes we will “get what we deserve”.
I hope and pray that we can survive until the election, and his administration and agenda is rejected. If not Americas best days may be behind us and some very dark days are coming.
In 2007 Senator Obama promised change, well America, you got it. It just is not the change many expected, it is exactly what those who were called racists warned you of. Who knew those the liberals called racists, were actually prophets.

I am an Arizonan and proud of it. I like the desert, the independence, living in the wild west, I am also a gun owner. Arizona is a proudly conservative state. We are Americans, we clutch our bibles and our guns. Which is why I took notice in 2009, when Janet Napalitano, Hilary Clinton and Barack Hussein Obama started politicizing the “Flood of Guns” traveling from Arizona south into Mexico. There they were being delivered into the hands of drug gangs to be used in crimes and to murder innocent civilians. This was soon after the State of Arizona started talking about taking on the responsibility of the Federal Government to deport the flood of illegal immigrants in Arizona which were burying our local government in Millions of dollars of debt.
Right away the thought entered my mind that they would use this as an excuse to implement gun control.
The Second amendment reads: A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.
In America (outside of the beltway and certain liberal states) this is taken very seriously.
But the current administration saw an opportunity and decided to take advantage of it. Then something happened they did not expect, Brian Terry, Terry a Marine Corps Veteran and former police officer was just doing his job protecting the border when he was ambushed by drug runners. He was shot with a AK-47. When this gun was traced, it was shown to have been sold by a gun store in Glendale Arizona.
At first there was outrage, how could this happen? Then the wheels started to fall off for the justice dept.
Agent Brian Terry
The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms was monitoring sales of firearms in Arizona. They had put together a program to “trace” weapons going from LEGAL Gun dealers in Arizona, being bought by straw buyers then into the hands of criminals in Mexico.
This sale could have been stopped, but the ATF told the gun store owner to sell it to the couriers even though the store owner was suspicious.
Now so far this sounds great right? Track the weapons and arrest the criminals. But being that the President Obama WANTED to count more illegal weapons going over the border, they let the guns WALK. The ATF, FBI, DHS, DOJ all let these weapons go into Mexico WITHOUT tracing them, OR telling the Mexican Government.
Now there is tons of evidence that this was all planned and executed by officials at the highest level in the Dept of Justice and the Oval office. There are cover ups being put into place.
I pray that Justice will be done and the administration will be held to task. This is just one way our civil liberties are being taken away from us by the current administration.
Lives have been lost to advance a political agenda of gun control. Of this there is no doubt. What else are they doing to steal our money and reward their followers? How else are they creating “opportunities to take away our civil liberties?”
We as Americans need to be aware of the lengths our current government will go to in order to take away our rights as citizens. I encourage the House and the Senate to keep up their investigations. (Even though Harry Reid works hand in glove with the Obama administration).
People need to go to jail for the crimes that are being committed.
Like the Who say “We won’t be fooled again” I hope this is true.
