“I pledge allegiance to the United States of America,
And not to an ideology, which can never stand,
One nation under socialism, divisive,
With no liberty or justice for anyone.”
This November, you will make a choice. Will you choose One Nation Under Socialism?
McNaughton’s Answers to Questions Regarding This Painting:
Q: Why the title “One Nation Under Socialism?”
A: Our federal government has been moving in the direction of socialism for over one hundred years. Many presidents and politicians have compromised the Constitution as we have given away our freedoms under the guise of entitlements and government intervention. When the people are willing to sacrifice the next generation for their current lifestyles and allow the federal government to have all the power for an illusory mess of pottage—you have chosen One Nation Under Socialism.
Q: What do you mean by an ideology, which can never stand?
Today Obama made a surprise visit to the daily White House press briefing to discuss a phone conversation he had this afternoon with Sgt. Crowley of the Cambridge Police Dept. He said they had a good discussion, even made the comment that the Sgt. and Obama have a beer sometime in the future at the White House.
However, he did not apologize for saying the Cambridge PD was acting “stupidly,” and said he stuck by his original assessment, that ‘pulling Gates out of his home’ (which did not happen) was wrong. He said both parties (Sgt. Crowley & Prof. Gates) “over-reacted.”
How is it that Obama can apologize on behalf of America all over the world, but he cannot make a simple apology for playing the race card on national TV? PrezBO is the one who is “acting stupidly.”
And yes, we are supposed to believe this whole discussion occurred inside a 5-minute phone conversation. I call B.S. on that part, as well.
Excellent piece in the New York Post today by Col. Ralph Peters about how Israel is fearful of the unknown that ‘is’ Obama. From the article (emphasis mine):
Obama’s an unknown quantity, though. While hysterical claims that he’ll be pro-Islamist from start to finish are absurd, even minor shifts away from supporting Israel’s struggle against terrorists could have catastrophic consequences. And Israel’s vaunted intelligence services can’t tell their superiors what Obama will do, since few (if any) of the president-elect’s supporters know what he intends to do.
In fact, the president-elect may not know himself. He’s a babe in the woods, and the woods are full of wolves. Fighting political rivals doesn’t prepare you for fighting terrorist fanatics.
For now, Israel must worry that a major ground offensive against Hamas would be halted halfway by the withdrawal of US support, both diplomatic and practical. The IDF even counts on us to replenish reserve stocks of the guided weapons that minimize civilian casual ties or penetrate tunnels and bunkers. Israel could find that it had paid a grim price in the blood of its sons and daughters, only to be robbed of the chance to hand Hamas a meaningful defeat.
Today, violence in Iraq is the lowest it’s ever been, and by all accounts, the Iraq war has been won. Where is the media to praise President Bush for this?
I could go on and on and on with example after example, but for everything the left has blamed Bush for, they have failed to give him credit when the reverse results were true, regardless of the event. But then again, I guess that just goes to the known double-standard I’ve observed in the press. If it helps Bush, don’t print it – if it hurts Bush, it’s front page for months.
Congressman Bobby Rush: ‘This is a matter of national importance. There are no African Americans in the Senate, and I don’t think that anyone, any U.S. senator who’s sitting in the Senate right now, wanna go on record to DENY one African American from being seated in the U.S. Senate. I don’t think they want to go on record doing that’…
