    I lived there as well during the Rodney King riots in L.A. (which in fact were in 1992, not 1993).

    But there’s one big difference between then and now for me (besides the fact that I no longer live in California):

    THEN I was NOT armed. But I am NOW.

    So if any of Obama’s “sons” want to try to bring the “revolution” to MY neck of the woods if they don’t like the verdict of the grand jury in Ferguson: I’ll be ready for them.

    Unfortunately, I’ve come to the conclusion that you’re likely correct, that sooner or later, to preserve our freedoms, the remedy won’t come through the BALLOT BOX but through the BULLET BOX.

    One of the very few consolations with the NSA scandal is that it has cost the Democrats DEARLY with one of their key constituencies: the millennials.

    Guess even brainwashed millennials draw the line at being watched constantly by Big Brother.

    Well, we’re all pleased to do our part!

    @ soyousay

    Regarding your 2:22pm reply to my 2:12pm post, I’ll take your response as being a “no” to the FIRST question I asked in the last paragraph of my post and a “yes” to the SECOND question.

    @ usedCZARsalesman

    You stated to soyousay: “as far as people being jealous, why would anyone be jealous of a person with such a sick, twisted childhood, full of sexual abuse and vile depravity on the part of their immediate family”.

    BRAVO!

    There isn’t enough money in all the world that would cause me to want to trade places with Lena Dunham.

    Or soyousay, for that matter!

    @ soyousay

    You stated to SLAPTHELEFT: “clearly you resent those of us with money.”

    Even if just purely for the sake of argument I assumed that you’re correct about SLAP, it would STILL put SLAP in pretty good company, now wouldn’t it? Right alongside THE PRESIDENT THAT YOU SUPPORT! You know, the president who constantly demonizes “millionaires and billionaires” and tells those who worked hard to be successful that “YOU DIDN’T BUILD THAT!”.

    You also stated to SLAP: “Well, maybe if you worked harder or were smarter you’d be successful too. Maybe next time. Now, how about you spackle those nail holes.”

    Just out of curiosity, would you ALSO give the same advice to the kind of able-bodied people we’ve been seeing in the last few months on the streets of Ferguson and St. Louis at night, the vast majority of whom all but certainly do NOT have jobs and probably many of whom have NEVER had them but instead are being wholly provided for on the public dime? Or is a life of taxpayer-supported indolence for THESE people perfectly okay with you?

    With all due respect to Sen. Sessions, who I have a great deal of admiration for by the way, in my opinion, the best way to thwart Obama’s immigration plans is for the states to become the main line of resistance.

    I have oft-posted on this site that what needs to happen to thwart Obama’s unconstitutional overreaches is for state governors, backed by their state legislatures and state law-enforcement personnel, to tell Obama in no uncertain terms that they will neither obey nor submit to nor abide by nor enforce such overreaches in their states and to dare Obama to just TRY to make them comply.

    If the Dems lose the Senate in five days, as is appearing increasingly likely, and Obama ripostes by starting to try to flood this country with illegals, then state governors should order their state law-enforcement personnel to start arresting those illegals, and they should then be kept in detention and/or deported/expelled.

    And if Obama tells them that they can’t do this, they should respond, oh yes, we CAN do this and we ARE doing this, and the only way Obama is going to stop them from doing this is at the point of federal bayonets, so Obama, YOUR move.

    And the position of these governors will be IMMENSELY strengthened if the Dems lose the Senate, because after that, NO Dems are going to take a political bullet for Obama anymore.

    Obama COULD escalate with force and violence, but I very much doubt he will: he could have but DIDN’T at the Bundy ranch.

    @ Texas

    I’ll bet soyousay DOES have a job – only that “job” is being paid to post the leftist line on sites like this.

    So I hope that his paymasters aren’t paying him more than minimum wage for such activity, because from what I’ve seen of his work, if they’re paying him anything more than that, they’re being BADLY overcharged.

    In fact, come to think of it, even AT minimum wage, they’re STILL being badly overcharged!

    “The funniest part is that she is fueling the fire of the very people who given the chance, would pull her down from her pedestal and eat her so they could then have what she had/has.”

    EXCELLENT POINT!

    If the type of society that Lena Dunham supports ever came into being, SHE would be one of the very first ones to be lined up against the pockmarked walls, as a “counter-revolutionary” or “bourgeousie oppressor” or WHATEVER is the current pejorative that is in vogue with her set.

    The ironic thing is, with all these children of privilege who for whatever reason gravitate to leftist movements, it never seems to occur to them that if the type of extreme wealth they demonize that they THEMSELVES possess is so bad, then they should give away their OWN wealth. Somehow they NEVER seem to get to the place of actually lowering themselves by doing this to the status of those they PRETEND to champion.

    Barack Obama can easily be Exhibit A for this dynamic: for all he inveighs against “millionaires and billionaires”, look who he himself hangs out with, and for someone who inveighs against capitalism, he lives a VERY bourgeous life HIMSELF.

    But then again, with Obama and Dunham and people of their ilk, hypocrisy isn’t just a WORD, it’s a LIFESTYLE.

    @ soyousay

    You must be part of “the narcissistic, emotionally and intellectually shallow and clueless generation that she purports to (and may in fact) represent.”

    Regarding the Dixie Chicks, I’m sure YOU were an aficionado of their type of music during their reign on the country charts. NOT!

    You stated: “i guess all that ill will you channeled their way fell somewhere short, probably between the Piggly Wiggly and the bowling alley.”

    Uh, not quite: there are NO Piggly Wigglys where I live, in fact, anywhere I have EVER lived.

    EPIC FAIL!

  • [8] October 30, 2014 at 11:59am

    Couldn’t agree more!

    I wouldn’t know Lena Dunham from Eve if I walked right by her on the street – which gives you no small idea of how much I watch HBO’s offerings, which is, NOT AT ALL!

  • [15] October 30, 2014 at 11:57am

    So Taylor Swift wants to follow down the exact same road that the Dixie Chicks blazed, huh?

    Well, we saw how great THAT worked out for the Dixie Chicks, didn’t we?

    @ Snowleopard

    you replied at 1:08pm to STBBU’s 1:01pm post with: “Obama is a narcissistic sociopath so filled with hate he is capable of doing anything to try and hold onto power.”

    He may be capable of ATTEMPTING anything to such a end, but if he’s fool enough to try to hold onto power extra-constitutionally, he’s going to discover to his horror, and at the worst possible time, that there’s a HUGE gulf between being capable of ATTEMPTING something and actually SUCCEEDING in pulling it off, a MUCH bigger gulf than he EVER imagined there was.

    I’m physically capable of ATTEMPTING to jump across the Grand Canyon (meaning that I’m capable of running up to and jumping off the edge of the Canyon somewhere along the rim in the hopes of jumping far enough to land safely on the other side), but we BOTH know what my chances are of actually SUCCEEDING in that endeavor if I’m fool enough to TRY it.

    From the following thread on The Blaze yesterday:

    http://www.theblaze.com/stories/2014/10/28/guess-how-many-bibles-have-arrived-at-the-office-of-the-houston-mayor-after-she-subpoenaed-pastors-sermons/

    you already know, from our back-and-forth on this thread where you answered my question as to what made you think Obama could actually pull off such a power move (and if you didn’t see my responses to your answer, they’re now on Page 3 of the comments to this thread), what I think of Obama’s chances of pulling off such a move, and why, so I won’t repeat them here.

    Regarding your 11:15am reply to my 10:37pm response to your 9:08am post:

    Just WHO is going to be coming to forcibly disarm the American people if Obama is fool enough to try to order it? The MILITARY? The NATIONAL GUARD? CIVILIAN LAW ENFORCEMENT?

    The civilian federal workforce? Let’s see, are these the same people that tried to forcibly disarm the armed citizens who came out to Cliven Bundy’s ranch in Nevada earlier this year to stand in solidarity with Bundy? Wait a minute, what’s that you say, they DIDN’T try to disarm those citizens but BACKED DOWN INSTEAD? Gee, fancy that!

    And are any and/or all of these the same bodies that are going to impose a national state of martial law if Obama tries to order it?

    As far as a pandemic, if it DOES hit America, WHO is it likely to affect MOST? History has shown that pandemics spread most quickly and virulently in crowded urban settings. And WHICH party’s base is predominantly located in such settings? Well, what do you know, it’s OBAMA’S!

    And I STILL firmly believe, as I have oft-posted on this site, that if things start getting as out-of-control in this country as the scenario you are painting suggests, that patriots in our military WILL take action, and that we will see the rise of a real-life General James Mattoon Scott who will succeed where his film counterpart played by Burt Lancaster in the movie Seven Days In May couldn’t and successfully depose the president.

    @ RedDawning

    Regarding your 10:50am response to my 10:37am reply to momrules’s post:

    If what you’re implying is that after leaving the White House Obama will become Secretary-General of the U.N. (his SCHEDULED departure from the White House will be just three weeks after current Sec-Gen Ban Ki Moon’s current term as Sec-Gen ends), Obama faces some major obstacles there.

    For starters, the U.N. charter forbids a Sec-Gen from being a citizen of a permanent member of the Security Council. Even if Obama were to renounce his U.S. citizenship or even produce proof that he was NEVER a U.S. citizen (which would become an absolute NIGHTMARE for the Democrat Party), he also cannot receive a no vote from any permanent member of the Security Council if nominated for the position, and given how much he has antagonized our European allies AND Vladimir Putin, I can’t see Russia, Britain, AND France ALL at worst declining to vote no against him.

    But even if he could somehow clear THOSE hurdles, the General Assembly would still have to vote on his nomination. Obama by now has completely worn out his welcome in many parts of the world: he has completely squandered the good will he had all around the world in the early years of his term, ESPECIALLY in the Islamic world. NOBODY anymore wants to make him King of the World (not even those in America’s inner cities). I wouldn’t therefore bet the farm he’d win a General Assembly vote for the position.

  • [2] October 29, 2014 at 10:37am

    You replied at 10:21am to RedDawning’s 10:13am response to you with: “I have never believed he will leave office either. America’s last President and America’s first dictator.”

    Oh, I have COMPLETE confidence that by Inauguration Day 2017 Obama WILL leave, or have left, the White House: the only question will be whether he leaves it VERTICAL and under his OWN POWER or whether he leaves it HORIZONTAL.

    And if he tries to make himself president-for-life, I am completely confident that the ONLY reason he won’t leave the White House HORIZONTAL if he leaves it VERTICAL is because he will have left it vertical to go into deep hiding somewhere in the Third World and/or a place like North Korea.

    Any would-be king STILL needs an army to put and keep him in power: please tell me WHERE you think OBAMA’S will come from if he tries to go this route.

    Our military? NOT BLOODY LIKELY! And I am quite confident the same will be true of those in our National Guard and civilian law-enforcement.

    The civilian federal workforce, as so many people you see posting here and all over the Internet believe? PUH-LEEZE! These bravehearts didn’t even want to engage a few score armed citizens there at the Bundy ranch in Nevada earlier this year: the thought that they’re going to take on TENS OF MILLIONS of armed citizens who will be locked and loaded and aroused and will fight an Obama dictatorship with all they have, to the DEATH if need be, is laughable.

    I haven’t quite figured out yet if Dushman is a satirist or if he actually believes what he posts, but even if I presume it’s the latter, while far be it for ME to defend him, just WHAT did he say in his post that’s so offensive?

    He’s right, all over the country, law enforcement IS preparing for the worst: law-enforcement departments all over the state of Missouri are stocking up on riot gear.

    Certainly a lot of the CITIZENRY is preparing for the worst, as the absolute EXPLOSION in sales of guns and ammo during Obama’s presidency attests.

    And I also think he’s right that what he calls the “Ferguson October Movement” is NOT going away anytime soon. Blacks right now all throughout this country are on a knife’s edge psychologically and emotionally where it isn’t going to take very much at all to set them off into going on the warpath.

  • [1] October 29, 2014 at 9:45am

    I agree.

    CNN? Are they even still in business?

  • [3] October 29, 2014 at 9:44am

    Let them start shooting cops and whites, and those cops and whites will be returning fire – and a lot of those rioters will be participating in their very last riot.
