Obama is America’s second best bullshitter politician behind William Jefferson Blythe III. His masterful combination of Dr. Milton Erickson’s conversational hypnotic skills and substance-free aspirational rhetoric has duped many a naive voter. The pied political piper artfully provided the peeps what they wanted to see and hear. Now the rope-a-dope is on (U.S. imperialists out of Iraq??? Yeah, right).
According to Barack “Hussein in the Membrane” Obama, the feds, state and local police, and the rent-a-cops just aren’t enough to instill fear in the hearts of the proles these days. The Kenyan-born crack-smoker is calling for a “civilian national security force” that is just as “powerful, strong, and as well funded” as the U.S. military.
I guess that Obama didn’t get the memo regarding W’s deployment of the 3rd Infantry Division’s 1st Brigade Combat Team to police the streets of America. But then again, you can’t have to many eyes and ears in your delicate new regime. I can’t wait to submit my application for neighborhood surveillance captain in the Obama corps.
I seriously doubt that Obama’s handlers have clued him in on how many zeros are in the military defense budget. But then again, money is not an issue when you can forcibly extract whatever you need from a minority of the population with a progressive income tax. Democracy is but a fragile specimen that atrophies when the shmoes figure out how easy it is to vote in a wealth re-distributor to lighten the load.
Just like under W’s civil liberty deprivation regime, the change we can believe also wants to shit on your privacy. Obama claimed that the Bush administration had “abused [its] authority and undermined the Constitution by intercepting the communications of innocent Americans without their knowledge or the required court orders”. Soon afterwards, he dutifully cast his Senate vote in favor of immunizing telecoms from liability for handing over private communications to the government.
With his telecom immunity flip-flop vote, maybe Obama just wanted a little more intelligence on the American people to buttress his civilian informant brigade field reports. The audacity of snoops.
My friends, we live in the greatest nation in the history of the world. I hope you’ll join with me as we try to change it ~ Barack Obama
