    Too bad Bush, Cheney, and Rumsfeld could never be bothered. A visit there teaches you the lessons of sacrifice and honor. The Vietnam Memorial shows what futility looks like in lives…

    • gvette

      Two things Obama knows very little of.

      • johninPCFL

        And yet he still knows more than Bush, Cheney and Rumsfeld combined.

          Hey, you overlooked Darth Vador!

      • ObozoMustGo

        gvette… you’re dead wrong… Obozo doesn’t know very little of sacrifice and honor… he knows NOTHING of sacrifice and honor. Look at the way he sticks his middle finger out at Americans struggling to survive while he and Moochelle go off on multi-million dollar vacations every 6 weeks. Like he’s some royalty entitled to such luxury. Look at the way he brazenly lies to his messianic followers knowing that no matter how much he abuses them, they’re so stupid they’ll love him anyway, like a battered women goes back for more. Look at the way he brazenly abuses the media because he knows they’ll take his lies and distortions and defend the defenseless on his behalf. Obozo is a scumbag, piece of garbage, whose lack of honor knows no bottom. There is no honor in a stupid, self-centered narcissist like Obozo.

        Have a nice day!

            gvette… the sooner you learn that the hard core leftist freaks deserve not one shred of your respect, the sooner you’ll understand that there is a battle going on and they are our enemies. Not all, because there is a difference between a traditional American liberal, and a hard core Nazi that blindly follows their Fuhrer, Obozo. Those are the ones that seek totalitarianism and government control, and those are the ones to despise and make fun of for their stupidity. Others that come on here are just liberals.

            Have a great day!

          Hey Obozo whack job go fuch yourself you asshole. We are talking about soldiers that gave their lives for this country. Obviously you didn’t so we still have to read your shit. The irony is that that they gave their lives so that you could post nonsense and bullshit on a daily basis. Obama was showing respect for the dead while you want to make a political statement I hope you fuching chock you cocksucket.

          • ObozoMustGo

            Nappy…. got your panties in a knot, dontcha! Obozo has no respect for soldiers or anyone else. Only himself. And that photo op was just that, a photo op. Why else would he order help to stand down while our Ambassador and 3 others were under attack for 8 hours? Because he’s only concerned with himself. He’s a narcissistic piece of garbage. Noting more.

            Now, go ask your boyfriend to undue that knot for you.

          • ralphkr

            I see that you are still in your own little fantasy world, Obozo. Even FUBAR news admitted that rescue mission (CIA led) was driven off, after losing ten troops, less than two hours after the attack began and that the rescue mission from Tripoli arrived approximately 3 hours after the attack began and rescued and evacuated 32 of our people to Tripoli.

            You are also sadly deficient in your mathematical skills. The attack on the Consulate started about 9:30 PM and by 11:00 PM all the shooting was over and looters were in the Consulate where they found Stevens and immediately rushed him to a hospital. A far cry from what US looters would have done since our people would have either ignored him or robbed and beaten him. There was a second outbreak of shooting when our party from Tripoli was ambushed but all was quiet by 2 AM. With your claim of 8 hours of fighting I reckon you must be considering that from the time of the first attack until after the evacuees were in Tripoli as the length of time of the battle.

    And now…. The REAL Cartoon Of The Day!

    [click image to enlarge]

    Have a nice day!

    “After we win this election, it’s our turn. Payback time. Everyone not with us is against us and they better be ready because we don’t forget. The ones who helped us will be rewarded; the ones who opposed us will get what they deserve. There is going to be hell to pay. Congress won’t be a problem for us this time. No election to worry about after this is over and we have two judges ready to go.” Valerie Jarrett, closest advisor to President B. Hussein Obozo

    • CrankyToo

      If Ms. Jarrett did, indeed, say that, I would applaud her. And nearly 61 million other voters would probably say the same. After the despicable way the Repugnican party behaved during the entire 4 years of President Obama’s first term (from Day Fricking One), a severe ass kicking is just what those dirtbags need and deserve. And that’s what they got last fall. Now we need to keep our boots on their necks. We need to keep kicking the shit out of the Greedy Old Pricks until they capitulate and start acting like they actually give a shit about anyone but themselves and their avaricious puppetmasters.

      Meanwhile, I hope they keep doing what they’re doing, because it’s going to earn them a SEVERE ass-kicking in every election on the horizon.

      As regards the vitriolic cartoon you posted above, well that’s nothing more than incendiary bullshit. I don’t know if you think your nonsense is changing the minds of intelligent people, or if you’re just hanging your bare ass out over the balcony for kicks, but in the former case, I’d say you’re delusional – and in the latter, I’d say you need therapy, Squire. And when you get your head on straight, you should consider going back to school to get your GED.

      All that said, let me close with this: Only a dumbass wingnut like you, Bozo, would consider the statement you attribute to Ms. Jarrett to be scandalous. Only you would consider that cartoon image to be anything but representative of your unjustifiable hatred. You and the rest of the Goobers down in Dogpatch.

      • ObozoMustGo

        Crank… you’re quite the militant Nazi, aren’t you? It’s quite evident that a moron such as you with a single digit IQ cannot put 2 and 2 together, and see that there is a relationship between Obozo, what his closest advisor Jarrett says, and the abuse of power by using the IRS to harrass his political opponents. Such tactics are the tactics of tyrants, dictators, and corrupt politicians. But you can’t figure that out, can you? Because to an idiot like you, abuse of power is a good thing when it’s used against political opponents. So not only are you stupid, but you’re the perfect little useful idiot for the Nazis.

        Here’s a pic of your ideal version of your messiah!

        Have a nice day!

        “Wipe the drool from your chin, you slack-jawed moron.” – ObozoMustGo

        • CrankyToo

          You’re seldom right, but you are today. You’re correct in your assertion that “Such tactics are the tactics of tyrants, dictators, and corrupt politicians.” And one need only look to the most corrupt, most tyrannical President of them all for the perfect example of abuse of power – Repugnican dirtbag Richard Millhous Nixon.

          Unfortunately for rabble rousing buttwipes like yourself, there’s no support for your wild claims of abuse of power against our President. You just keep trying to spread your tired old bullshit about this conspiracy or that scandal. I think you’re wasting your time, Squire.

          Incidentally, having spent 7 years in Germany during the mid-60s and mid-70s, and having met a number of former Nazis personally, I think I can say with certainty that I’m about as far as you can ideologically get from a Nazi. And if you had any conception of what the Nazis were all about, you would not only understand that point, but you’d be a lot more considerate in your treatment of Nazis because, in reality, they’re just a more intelligent version of you.

          • ObozoMustGo

            Crank… you must be hitting the crack pipe early today. Since you evidently have no idea what you are talking about, I will remind you of a few things:

            1) the acronym Nazi stands for National SOCIALIST Party. Which of the 2 parties is most closely aligned with the concepts of socialism? Be honest…… that’s right, the DemonRAT party. Therefore, Nazi = DemonRAT. It’s that simple.

            2) Nixon was a scumbag. No argument. Though his party affiliation was Republican, there is no doubt that he was a progressive with a belief in big government. That being said, there is NO DOUBT that Obozo was the guiding hand behind the IRS targeting political opponents to suppress the conservative vote. The difference between Nixon and Obozo is that Obozo was successful in his abuse of power while Nixon was not.

            3) There is NO DOUBT that Obozo lied about Benghazi being about a stupid video when even ABC News, loyal Obozo sycophant, even revealed how Obozo changed the true story of the CIA talking points TWELVE TIMES to result in a complete removal of any reference to the truth, and instead perpetuated more lies.

            So, while you and other morons like you continue to demonstrate an inability to see reality because of the fog of your messiah’s Svengali-like control over you, the rest of us know the truth and will continue to repeat it. Even to leftist freak turds like you floating around in this sewer called The Memo.

            Have a nice day!

            “I have made it clear that the United States government had
            nothing to do with this video,” – Barack Hussein Obozo lying to the world in his speech to UN General Assembly 2 WEEKS following the Benghazi attack

          • Allan Richardson

            The Nazi party was called National Socialist BEFORE Hitler joined it and took it over, and the name was chosen because in the 1920’s in Europe, socialist was a POSITIVE term, except for the Soviet Union’s vision of socialism.

            The Nazi party had policies the exact OPPOSITE of socialism: Socialism implies economic help for everyone, not treating some segment of the population as subhuman … such as “the 47% of lazy bums on welfare” … which “conservatives” refer to as subhuman; if they can’t feed their children, or pay off student loans for lack of a post-college job, or get medical care with a long-term doctor-patient relationship, who cares about them?

            Also, in Nazi Germany, a small clique of corporations controlled the government through Hitler and his cronies, and the economy was rigged so that working people and small business could not survive financially. On Krystallnacht, the GOVERNMENT actually sponsored thugs who DESTROYED many small stores, then denied their owners compensation because they were Jews. Halliburton and Karl Rove (granson of SS soldier Roverer) are much closer to Hitler than ANYONE in the Democratic Party.

          • ObozoMustGo

            Alan… you and Crank must be hitting the crack pipe with one another. How stupid can you be to post on here that the Nazi party existed before Hitler? You are a fool. The FACT of the matter is that Hitler founded something called the German Workers Party in 1920 at the age of 30 before he was known. That same party he built, he later named the National Socialist German Workers’ Party (Nationalsozialistische Deutsche
            Arbeiterpartei or NSDAP) called for short, Nazi. You’re a dope!

            As the name implies, Hitler was socialist. Witness what he did when they took over Austria in 1938. They had 25% unemployment then. The Austrians democratically chose Hitler by authorizing annexation with Germany with 98% of the vote. He then created the Public Work Service (government controlled labor), took over the schools and banned religion with political indoctrination in it’s place (sound familiar with Obozo’s efforts to nationalize education?), restructuring of the family through government provided daycare and severe restrictions or outright elimination of parental authority, instituted nationalized medicine; forced gun registration and then confiscation; massive regulations and control of businesses, etc. etc. These are socialist tactics for accomplishing socialist ideals. While it is true that Hitler hated Communists, this does not in any way alleviate him from adherence to a socialist ideology. Clearly, HE HIMSELF CHOSE THE PARTY NAME, NAZI. Do you think he did not know what he was doing? He’s not as stupid as you, Allan. Perhaps more crazy, but not as stupid.

            Finally, for you to suggest that corporations controlled Hitler, the tryant that controlled the military with an iron fist, is laughable. Such a fantasy can only exist in a brain that’s already falsely predisposed to believing corporations are evil. Only an idiot thinks like that. The rest of us that live in Realville know that the man the controls the guns and military controls everything. In fact, it is well known that Hitler took over many industries by killing the owners and/or through outright regulatory harrassment and confiscation of property.

            Allan, the more you know, the more this guy Hitler is beginning to look an awful lot like your messiah, Obozo, now isn’t he?

            Have a nice day!

          • ralphkr

            Oh, bozo, you are a veritable fountain of fictional “facts”. The German Workers Party was started January 1919 but Hitler did not join that party until September (as a spy for the German Army) and was the Party’s 55th member. Rudolph Jung was the one who changed the name to National Socialist Workers’ Party (NAZI) in 1920. Hitler wanted to name it Social Revolutionary Party. Hitler admired and copied the Fascist ideology from Mussolini’s Italy. There are still a number of Fascist countries in existence today with the ultra-right Republicans doing all they can to convert the US to Fascism. I suppose that I must once again remind you that Fascism believes that government exists to serve big business while Socialism believes that government exists to serve the people..

          • ObozoMustGo

            Ralphie… Hitler joined the GWP very early. Which “member number” he was is of no consequence. It was he who took the lead in developing marketing strategies to attract new members. It was he who spoke at the meetings with a fire and eloquence that attracted more people. And it was he developed the symbol of the swastika on white circle background on red which is still a symbol of tyranny to this day. And once again, I will remind you that the word “socialist” in National SOCIALIST Party means exactly what it means…. SOCIALIST!!! You guys on the left love to change the meaning of words to fit your misguided world view, but the meaning is the meaning…. So while you may like to attempt to parse fascism and socialism, both are clearly on the left end of the political spectrum. Look at the deeds of Hitler and you will see socialist goals and ideology. The only difference between the two is the APPEARANCE of private control of industry, when the reality is completely different. Private industry and business run beneath the hard hand of government regulation and control under threat of jail or asset confiscation. You guys on the left have been trying to pin fascism on the right for a long time, but it’s simply not true. Fascism is a leftist ideology. The ideology of tyranny which is the same as socialist ideology and requires a heavy handed government. Republicanism is the ideology of freedom, liberty, and individual sovereignty. There is no acceptance of heavy handed government control or basis for government redistribution of income. Those are leftist ideologies and concepts. The very same concepts that are the basis of the DemonRAT party in America today.

            Sorry Ralphie, but your little excursion into the deep weeds of symantics and timelines does NOT change the fact that Nazi and Socialist and DemonRAT party are one in the same. Their just different flavors of the same old and tired product. And they are all based on a lie. And socialism IS NOT for the people, it’s for the ruling class. You have bought the lie, Ralphie, hook line and sinker. Too bad.

            Have a nice day, Ralphie!

            “If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.” – Joseph Goebbels

          • ralphkr

            As usual, Obozo, I see you are not about to let facts confuse you which seems to be a common trait with conservatives. The only facts that exist for conservatives are those that they agree with and all other facts are myths in a conservative’s warped mind.

            Hitler was the 55th member but his membership card was 555 because when the Nazis decided to use numbers on the card they started at 500 and issued them alphabetically. You are correct by stating that those on the left have been pinning the term “Far Right” on the Nazis for a long time but it is Interesting that you missed the fact that ALL Americans pinned that label on the Nazis before WW2. I guess that makes Dewey, Eisenhower, Nixon, Reagan all leftist socialists in your warped tiny brain.

            You are correct that Republicanism is all for individual freedom if you mean that the only individuals are corporations and the wealthy and that those who are not wealthy are just there to be vassals. Since the idea that the be all and end all of government is to serve big business is the driving force of Fascism it is obvious that the current Republican extremists ARE Fascists and wish to complete the change of the US to a Fascist country.

            Your claim that ” Nazi and Socialist and DemonRAT party are one in the same” only holds true if you also believe that Christianity, Satanism, and Buddhism are identical. By the way, if you ever get around to reading the New Testament you shall be horrified to discover that Jesus Christ taught Socialism ideals.

          • ObozoMustGo

            Ralphie… did you read my post on Hitler’s 25 Points of the Nazi Party. Go read it. Their list of demands reads like an Obozo campaign speech. No kidding. It really does. But I suppose you will not let the fact get in the way of your preconceived notions of what National SOCIALIST really means, will you.

            Ralphie… this is what puzzles me about you and other leftist freaks that romanticize socialism and criticize capitalism as fascist. You see, socialists LOVE big government. They love government that is regulating everything to keep things so-called “fair”. The LOVE government punishing succcess by taking from one and redistributing to others. The LOVE this notion of equality. These things require a large government that has it’s hands in every aspect of life. So when a government is very big and controlling, do you not see how private interests like big companies find the way to curry favor with politicians and bureaucrats? You see, the bigger the government that creates laborinths of rules and regulations and special treatments in taxation, the more likely that government to be cozied up and in bed with the big business. Do you not understand this? The very thing you decry is exactly what you want!!!!! Is this registering in your brain, Ralphie? I would imagine that the neurons that are firing right now have never been fired up for you. The absolute only solution to ending what you call “fascism” is to have a smaller government with less influence in our lives and a flat tax system with no loopholes and no deductions and no special treatment of political favorites. When the government is no longer central in our lives and businesses, that’s when corruption of government will end. No one will really need them.

            Have a nice day, Ralphie.

            “Government is like a baby. An alimentary canal with a big appetite at one end, and no sense of responsibility at the other.” – Ronald Reagan

          • ralphkr

            How strange, Obozo, that you claim that I romanticize socialism and criticize Capitalism since I have never done either. I have rightfully compared socialism to the teachings of Jesus Christ but I have never criticized Capitalism as Capitalism is the reason that I have a livable income. I gather that either you are wealthy beyond compare or completely brainwashed by the wealthy since a flat tax is the best way to make sure that the tax load is shifted from the wealthy to the poor just as a sales tax does.

          • ObozoMustGo

            Ralphie… a flat tax is fair. It treats EVERYONE under the law exactly the same. That’s fair. You can’t argue with that unless you agree with the Marxist philosophy of “from each according to ability, to each according to need.” Progressive taxation is a Marxist idea.

            For you to suggest that Christ taught socialism is laughable, at best, and sadly distorted. Christ taught INDIVIDUAL RESPONSIBILITY. The parable of the good Samaritan did not lead the Samaritan to tell the wounded and robbed man to wait because someone from the government will come help. His responsibility was an INDIVIDUAL responsibility, not a collective. Socialism is the lie of the collective. Christ was the exact opposite of the collective. Where you go wrong is in assuming that you can outsource your charity to politicians. They are liars and charlatans. You cannot outsource your charity to politicians and then grant them the power by threat of imprisonment to force others to finance the outsourcing of YOUR charity as well. That is wholly immoral, Ralphie. It’s why socialism is immoral.

            Have a nice day, Ralphie!

            “Socialist governments traditionally do make a financial mess. They always run out of other people’s money. It’s quite a
            characteristic of them.” – Margaret Thatcher, Speech, 1976

          • ralphkr

            OK, Obozo, although a flat tax is unfair it is not nearly as unfair as VAT or sales tax since they both free the truly rich from paying taxes but VAT & sales tax bears most heavily upon the lower income classes since the less you earn the greater percentage of your income is spent to survive and therefore going to taxes. The wealthy may purchase very expensive thing but that is a minuscule percentage of their income (and there are many ways for the wealthy to avoid VAT or sales tax) so they pay far less taxes.

            Since you do not believe that Christ taught Socialism that makes it clear that you either don’t read the Bible or, more likely, warp His teachings to gratify your own greed just like so many “Christians”. The good Samaritan is an excellent example of Socialist principles in that we are supposed to help those less fortunate than our self while the Republican mantra of “I’ve got mine. Screw you.” is the opposite of Christ’s teachings.

            Re: the Thatcher quote. I reckon she just proved that Republicans are socialists since they are always running up debt far more than Democrats.

          • ObozoMustGo

            Ralphie… what is unfair about treating everyone the same under the law? NOTHING is the answer. Everyone treated equally. Agreed on sales and VAT taxes.

            As well, you are smoking crack if you do not understand that Christ’s teachings are about INDIVIDUAL salvation, NOT COLLECTIVE. And the point of the parable of the Good Samaritan is an INDIVIDUAL’S responsibility to be charitable, not reliance on a collective government to be charitable. Your views are distorted because you are reading to what you want to hear, not what the real message is. There is NO SUCH THING as collective salvation, Ralphie. And any idiot that votes to give politicians the right to confiscate the property of others that earned it for the purpose of executing your personal charitable beliefs is a immoral and a fool. The politicians know there are fools like you out there and they use you and your vote to build their own wealth and power. This is why there is not a single shred of evidence to suggest that a single government program, whose original purpose was to “end poverty” or whatever lofty goal, has ever worked. In fact, the very problems the program sought to solve have only grown 10x or more worse. But you guys on the left continue to buy these lies despite the evidence in front of your faces. That’s the definition of insanity.

          • ObozoMustGo

            Ralphie…. you’ve obviously been missing your meds…. or hitting the bong too much lately. There is ZERO commonality between Hitler’s list of demands for the Nazi party and conservative Americans seeking freedom and libery. Here’s just a couple for you. These sound like demand right out of an Obozo campaign speech and should be things that you approve of:

            11. That all unearned income, and all income that does not arise from work, be abolished.

            12. Since every war imposes on the people fearful sacrifices in blood and treasure, all personal profit arising from the war must be regarded as treason to the people. We therefore demand the total confiscation of all war profits.

            13. We demand the nationalization of all trusts.

            14. We demand profit-sharing in large industries.

            15. We demand a generous increase in old-age pensions.

            This is just a smattering of Hitler’s socialist ideas. Face the facts, Ralphie. Obozo has more in common with Hitler than he does George Washington. Below is a quote that is a PERFECT description of what Obozo is doing to you leftist freak zombies that worship him like a messiah.

          • ObozoMustGo

            Allan… let me educate you with some facts about Hitler and his beliefs. From his own speech he gave in front of what was the largest crowd assembled to hear the Nazi ideas on Feb. 4, 1920. Read it and recognize the similarities to the DemonRAT party and their efforts today.

            The 25 Points of Hitler’s Nazi Party

            1. We demand the union of all Germans in a Great Germany on the basis of the principle of self-determination of all peoples.

            2. We demand that the German people have rights equal to those of other nations; and that the Peace Treaties of Versailles and St. Germain shall be abrogated.

            3. We demand land and territory (colonies) for the maintenance of our people and the settlement of our surplus population.

            4. Only those who are our fellow countrymen can become citizens. Only those who have German blood, regardless of creed, can be our countrymen. Hence no Jew can be a countryman.

            5. Those who are not citizens must live in Germany as foreigners and must be subject to the law of aliens.

            6. The right to choose the government and determine the laws of the State shall belong only to citizens. We therefore demand that no public office, of whatever nature, whether in the central government, the province, or the municipality, shall be held by anyone who is not a citizen.

            We wage war against the corrupt parliamentary administration whereby men are appointed to posts by favor of the party without regard to character and fitness.

            7. We demand that the State shall above all undertake to ensure that every citizen shall have the possibility of living decently and earning a livelihood. If it should not be possible to feed the whole population, then aliens (non-citizens) must be expelled from the Reich.

            8. Any further immigration of non-Germans must be prevented. We demand that all non-Germans who have entered Germany since August 2, 1914, shall be compelled to leave the Reich immediately.

            9. All citizens must possess equal rights and duties.

            10. The first duty of every citizen must be to work mentally or
            physically. No individual shall do any work that offends against the interest of the community to the benefit of all.

            Therefore we demand:

            [my comment –> this is where it gets good and could easily replace the DemonRAT party platform]

            11. That all unearned income, and all income that does not arise from work, be abolished.

            12. Since every war imposes on the people fearful sacrifices in blood and treasure, all personal profit arising from the war must be regarded as treason to the people. We therefore demand the total confiscation of all war profits.

            13. We demand the nationalization of all trusts.

            14. We demand profit-sharing in large industries.

            15. We demand a generous increase in old-age pensions.

            16. We demand the creation and maintenance of a sound middle-class, the immediate communalization of large stores which will be rented cheaply to small tradespeople, and the strongest consideration must be given to ensure that small traders shall deliver the supplies needed by the State, the provinces and municipalities.

            17. We demand an agrarian reform in accordance with our national requirements, and the enactment of a law to expropriate the owners without compensation of any land needed for the common purpose. The abolition of ground rents, and the prohibition of all speculation in land.

            18. We demand that ruthless war be waged against those who work to the injury of the common welfare. Traitors, usurers, profiteers, etc., are to be punished with death, regardless of creed or race.

            19. We demand that Roman law, which serves a materialist ordering of the world, be replaced by German common law.

            20. In order to make it possible for every capable and industrious German to obtain higher education, and thus the opportunity to reach into positions of leadership, the State must assume the responsibility of organizing thoroughly the entire cultural system of the people. The curricula of all
            educational establishments shall be adapted to practical life. The conception of the State Idea (science of citizenship) must be taught in the schools from the very beginning. We demand that specially talented children of poor parents, whatever their station or occupation, be educated at the expense of the State.

            21. The State has the duty to help raise the standard of national health by providing maternity welfare centers, by prohibiting juvenile labor, by increasing physical fitness through the introduction of compulsory games and gymnastics, and by the greatest possible encouragement of associations concerned with the physical education of the young.

            22. We demand the abolition of the regular army and the creation of a national (folk) army.

            23. We demand that there be a legal campaign against those who propagate deliberate political lies and disseminate them through the press. In order to make possible the creation of a German press, we demand:

            (a) All editors and their assistants on newspapers published in the German language shall be German citizens.

            (b) Non-German newspapers shall only be published with the express permission of the State. They must not be published in the German language.

            (c) All financial interests in or in any way affecting German newspapers shall be forbidden to non-Germans by law, and we demand that the punishment for transgressing this law be the immediate suppression of the newspaper and the expulsion of the non-Germans from the Reich.

            Newspapers transgressing against the common welfare shall be suppressed. We demand legal action against those tendencies in art and literature that have a disruptive influence upon the life of our folk, and that any organizations that
            offend against the foregoing demands shall be dissolved.

            24. We demand freedom for all religious faiths in the state, insofar as they do not endanger its existence or offend the moral and ethical sense of the Germanic race.

            The party as such represents the point of view of a positive Christianity without binding itself to any one particular confession. It fights against the Jewish materialist spirit within and without, and is convinced that a lasting recovery of our folk can only come about from within on the pinciple:


            [my comment –> If that’s not the philosphy of Obozo and the DemonRAT party, what the hell is it?]

            25. In order to carry out this program we demand: the creation of a strong central authority in the State, the unconditional authority by the political central parliament of the whole State and all its organizations.

            The formation of professional committees and of committees representing the several estates of the realm, to ensure that the laws promulgated by the central authority shall be carried out by the federal states.

            The leaders of the party undertake to promote the execution of the foregoing points at all costs, if necessary at the sacrifice of their own lives.


            Have a nice day!

          • CrankyToo

            I’m sure you’re a big hit down at the honky tonk on Fish Fry Fridays. I’ll bet the gals down there fairly swoon when you wax political, because you’re what dumb people think a smart person sounds like. They don’t realize that you’re actually only slightly more intelligent than a box of ball peens.

            You can’t support your asinine positions with acronyms. Hitler and his Nazis were fascists, not socialists. It’s clear that you don’t understand the distinction. May I suggest you break open a dictionary? They’re free online.

            And Nixon was a progressive, huh? Thelma Lou’s gonna get all moist when you lay that one on her.

          • ObozoMustGo

            Crank… you definitely are hitting the crack pipe now. Weekend is over, buddy… put it down. Only a absolute idiot like you actually believes that the word “Socialist” as in “National SOCIALIST Party” does not mean what socialist means. There goes another leftist freak moron that is incapable of understanding English.

            For your edification, there are 5 basic forms of government, into all other specifics seem to fit. Think of is as a continuum.
            All the way to the right is no government at all, called anarchy. All the way to the left is 100% government, complete government control, called communism, socialism, Nazism, fascism, etc. Pure democracy isto the left of republican government which is the left of anarchy. This is what we have and on that continuum between far left and far right, Republicanism is squarely center right.

            The 5 basic forms of government from left to right along the continuum are:

            1) Monarchy – rule by one – only in appearance, they have their bureaucrats and cabinets etc. etc.
            2) Oligarchy – rule by a few – tyranny of the elite – communism, socialism, Nazism, fascism all find their home here.
            3) Democracy – rule by majority – these never survive, they devolve to anarchy and then oligarchy
            4) Republic – rule by law – what we have, or are supposed to have.
            5) Anarchy – rule by no one

            Now, lets look at not just definitions, but deeds. What did Hitler do? Hitler and the Nazis instituted socialist policies. Here is
            a listing of policies that are clearly components of socialist systems:

            1) Socialized medicine,
            2) nationalized education,
            3) compulsory indoctrination of youth,
            4) elimination of religion from schools replaced with “worship” of the state,
            5) loose morals and the glorification of unwed mothers,
            6) nationalization of food,
            7) state run day care forced upon mothers who were forced to
            go to work rather than raise their children,
            8) government subsidized housing,
            9) subsidized college tuition,
            10) everyone entitled to food stamps, clothing and housing;
            11) extreme oversight and regulation of small business and
            government ownership of large business;
            12) government planning agencies for farmers that told them
            what to grow and when to grow it;
            13) outlaw of gun ownership by private citizens following
            after forced registration of gun ownership (sound familiar?);
            14) elimination of freedom of speech against the government;

            You can certainly attribute some of those policies to those of a dictatorship, but what the hell do you think are characteristics of socialist dictators? Duhhhh!!!! These are the kind of policies that mark truly socialist governments throughout history. You should be recognizing similarities in those policies above with those espoused by your party leaders.

            So you see, when you look at this objectively, you realize that Nazism IS, in all facts, actually HIGHLY correlated with socialism and communism. And your attempts to convince people that the word “socialism” in the Nazi acronym is just there by accident, or doesn’t really mean what it means is nothing more than a perpetuation of lies and complete ignorance of the very facts that slap you in the face because they are quite simply self-evident. You should try not to remain so ignorant. Words mean what they mean. Nazi equals National Socialist. DemocRATS in America are home to socialists.

            Nazi = socialists = DemocRATS

            Have a nice day!

            “If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.” – Joseph Goebbels

          • ralphkr

            OK, Bozo, one more time I shall attempt to teach you actual Honest to God real facts since you have absolutely no grasp of them at this point in time.

            1. Socialized medicine: Started by Bismarck in 1884. (Marvelous how Hitler was able to do this 5 years before he was born!)

            2. Nationalized Education: Started in Prussia in the 18th Century, Weimer Republic instituted universal free elementary schools, the Nazis made absolutely NO change in the school system other than adding their ideologies.

            3. Compulsory indoctrination of youth: I have no idea what this means unless you are referring to what I mentioned under #2.

            4. Elimination of religion from schools: This was accomplished in 1871 except for church run schools.

            5. Loose morals, etc.: Hilarious considering what a prude Hitler was.

            6. Nationalization of food: No, public markets and cafes were not touched unless run by Jews.

            7. State run day care forced upon mothers, etc.: The first 4 words are true but the rest are lies.

            8. Subsidized housing: No change from before the Nazis

            9. Subsidized tuition: No change from before the Nazis

            10: Everyone entitled to food stamps, etc.: True, just like in USA.

            11. Extreme oversight & regulation of small business and government ownership of large business: You should have stopped at “small business” because large business owned the government. Nazis even supplied slave labor to maximize big business profits.

            12. Planning agencies for farmer: Copied from the USA

            13. Outlaw of gun ownership by private citizens, etc.: If you change “private citizens” to “Jews” it would be true but the Nazis actually rescinded most of the gun control laws enacted by the Weimer Republic and made it much easier for non-Jews to have private firearms.

            14. Elimination of freedom of speech against the government: Very true.

            Once again, just because someone has “socialist” or “democratic” or “peoples” in the name of their party or country does not mean that they ARE socialist, or democratic, or for the people. The Nazis were Fascists (Big business is God just like the US Republican Party) while Socialists put the populace first.

          • ObozoMustGo

            Ralphie, the existence of socialist programs in the US does NOT mean that they are not socialist, nor does it mean they are good. All socialism is bad because it goes against human nature. Once again, exactly when the creation of a concept like socialized medicine was invented is of no consequence to the discussion at hand. Besides, I did NOT credit that idea or any other to the creation of Hitler. Just that it’s part of his ideology and is evidenced by the systems he put in place. Your contention is that Hiter’s National Socialist Party was not socialist. Of course it is. Words mean what they mean, Ralphie. Your list of retorts to my list is distraction away from the real facts of the case. You leftists like to call us on the right Nazi’s but it’s simply not true. The Nazi ideology is FAR closer to the ideology of the DemonRAT party than anything related to those of us on the right. That is the point of this discussion. Those of us on the right believe in freedom, liberty, individual sovereignty, private property, free market economics, and constitutionally limited, small government. Those concepts are antithetical to socialism, fascism, or any other tyrarnnical form of government.

            Have a nice day, Ralphie!

          • ralphkr

            Interesting use of backtracking and claiming that you never wrote what you posted, Obozo. You stated that Hitler started Socialized Medicine but when I pointed out that it started in Germany 5 years before Hitler was born you suddenly change your story to “I did NOT credit that idea or any other to the creation of Hitler” (I gather you meant to write “by Hitler”). Your post had 14 points of “facts” about Hitler and I was kind enough to point out your errors in the majority of those “facts” in a vain effort to get you to accept reality. You really should get your facts from somewhere other than Marvel Comics and Murdoch’s FUBAR News.

          • ObozoMustGo

            Ralphie… you joined in a conversation between me and Cranky. You, once again, are misinterpreting me. I listed what Hitler INSTITUTED, not created. That’s the exact word I used. Further, it was in the context what Hitler INSTITUTED in Austria after 98% of the Austrians voted for Germany to annex their country. So you once again been unable to interpret what was written. Further, you have not commented on Hitler’s 25 Points of the Nazi Party, which clearly reveals his socialist ideology. Though not purely Marxist, it is most certainly a leftist, socialist ideology. That is undeniable. And that was the point of the discussion.

            How’s your quest for a Santa gig coming, Ralphie? You’d be perfect for it.

            Have a nice day!

          • ralphkr

            OK, Obozo, since you believe that words mean what they say then that means that you feel that the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan, The Republic of Albania, Republic of Azerbaijan, Republic of Belarus, Republic of Botswana, Republic of Burundi, Republic of Haiti, Republic of Cuba, Republic of Indonesia, Islamic Republic of Iran, Lebanese Republic, Republic of Uganda, and a few score other Republics are your dream countries.

            Yep, by your way of thinking any country or organization containing the word “Republic” is a bastion of freedom and heaven on earth while anything with the word “Democrat” or “Socialist” is a bastion of repression and overweening government control. Now, kindly explain just where in YOUR pantheon of nations do the Democratic Republic of the Congo, The Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia, Democratic Socialist Republic of Sri Lanka fit. After all, words mean what they say, right?

          • ObozoMustGo

            Ralphie… you make a good point. Just because someone uses the word Republic in their country name does not mean that they are a repbulic in the American sense of the word, or even in any sense of the word. However, where your agument fails is that the use of the word “Socialist” in National Socialist Party actually does mean SOCIALIST under the normal meaning of the word. I posted Hitler’s 25 Points for the National Socialist Pary that clearly indicates socialist ideologies of nationalizing industries, nationalizing profits from certain industries, confiscation of assets and redistribution of those assets, etc. etc.. THESE ARE SOCIALIST IDEALS, Ralphie. What the hell else are they? So while you may be right about some of those 3rd worlders attempting to appear as though they are something they are not, the reality is the Nazi is a socialist driven party, despite the appearance of private enterprise in some pockets of the society.

            Have a nice day, Ralphie!

    This is a really great photograph capturing one of the best moments broadcast yesterday on television, in honor of Memorial Day 2013. In the foreground, we see many headstones of our war dead. Next, we see their families and loved ones looking like they have come for the day, looking as they probably did in their daily lives when these men and women, now dead, once lived among them. In the midst of this group, almost as an afterthought, we see the president and first lady, among all of these citizens brought together for the same purpose.
