As I read about President Obama’s decision to visit the storm-ravaged area almost a full week after Isaac hit, I was forced to asked myself if we had elected an empathy-free president. This question comes to mind only because of a history of other empathy-free actions made throughout Obama’s political career.

Finally, it occurs to me that Obama and Biden have created so many truly hostile divisions between people, divisions that have frayed or destroyed countless relationships between friends and family members, that probably not since the 1860s has so much raw animosity existed in this country.
Let history note that while Lincoln’s Civil War at least helped forge a stronger Union; a weaker, divided America is the inevitable result of Obama’s Uncivil War.

As these words are being written, the Democrats in Charlotte are reportedly planning to move Obama’s Thursday night speech from an outdoors arena (capacity 74,000) to an indoor arena (capacity 20,000) while praying nature gets angry enough to blame it on the weather. Apparently the “barroom ticket giveaways” to beef up the crowd didn’t work, even though they favored the obese.
Movies are another “poll substitute.” There are anti-Obama movies, and the problem is they’re pretty hard to get into. The most important is Dinesh D’Souza’s “2016: Obama’s America.” Here are moviegoers paying to see a movie that is well-heralded as an anti-Obama film. In Nazi Germany, Communist Russia or mullah-run Iran, you wouldn’t have the freedom to see such a movie. We haven’t lost most of our basic freedoms yet. You can go see “2016: Obama’s America.” You may, however, have a hard time getting in. No Obama-goons stopping you. Just too many other Americans who’ve heard all about it and want to see the film, too.

Even in the White House, of all places, there is a blinkered, committed totalitarian, spending your nation into galloping bankruptcy. Yet it is economic freedom that guarantees political freedom.

Attention all Republicans who are obsessed with civility: There are genuinely bad people in this world! By bad people, I’m referring to those mean-spirited souls whose intentions are to inflict as much pain as possible on those they perceive to be their enemies.
Which brings me to Barack Obama and “We’re gonna punish our enemies and we’re gonna reward our friends who stand with us on issues that are important to us.” The record is all too clear that the Master of the Forked Tongue is a very bad guy – a serpent who has no qualms about feigning patriotism, feigning respect for American troops, feigning a belief in capitalism and, above all, feigning love for America – all while keeping his focus on carrying out the collectivist dreams of his father.

The reason the pocket stick works is simple physics. The pocket stick can’t feel pain. It’s harder than the bones of your hand. It focuses the force of your blow into a small point, which is the tip of the stick. Thrust into the back of someone’s hand, it can break the bones of that hand. Jabbed into a face or neck, it can do painful, even seriously debilitating injury. Even using it to hammer away at an attacker’s arms, legs, or chest will drive many assailants back. It is a simple-to-use, easy-to-acquire, effortless-to-carry self-defense tool.
You need one. Get one. Buy one. Make one. Acquire a pocket stick in any way possible, or buy a small aluminum-bodied flashlight and learn to use it in the same way. You can’t afford not to, and there’s only one reason for that: Barack Obama stands a very good chance of being re-elected. When he does, he’ll make it that much harder for you to own a gun. He’ll go that much further to make self-defense illegal. He’ll demonstrate that much more contempt for you as a free citizen. To Obama and the Democrats, who are spending most of this week lying baldly to the American people in their wretched convention to re-coronate President Zero, you are a slave. You’re an idiot prole who has no rights and keeps no earnings except what the Democrats, in their generosity, permit you.
Let us say it honestly: Democrats loathe self-defense. They despise any assertion by the individual that his or her life has value. To the Democrats, all money and all people – the latter is much more significant than the former – belong to the government. This is why it is so important when spindly Barack Obama or bug-eyed Nancy Pelosi sneer at the concept of individual effort building individual success. This is why it matters when hypocrite and Klingon Michelle Obama presumes to dictate what you can eat while shoving junk food into her face

The 1,500 passengers who boarded the Titanic in April of 1912 did not willingly sail into an iceberg, but the voters who buy tickets to Obama’s Titanic 2.0 do not have the excuse of ignorance. The warnings of fiscal catastrophe are unmistakable, yet all we have heard speaker after speaker in Charlotte this past week is – party on!

Over the last four years, I have catalogued hundreds of reasons Barack Obama is a disaster for this country.
I mean it quite literally when I say that another four years of Obama will result in the fall of the USA as we have known it since it became a true, functioning nation with a working government 223 years ago.

While his claimed right to assassinate individuals, including American citizens, at will is certainly troubling, as are the large purchases of ammunition by the federal agencies that report to him, I don’t see any signs in either Obama’s speeches or his behavior to indicate that he intends to impose a socialist tyranny on the United States if he is re-elected. Second terms tend to be relatively uneventful and are predominantly driven by the attempts of the administration to survive the scandals that result from previously unknown actions committed during the previous term. And certainly, given the disengagement of the president and the incompetence of his officials, we can expect more revelations of the “Fast & Furious” variety.
Remember, this is a man whose formative years were spent smoking pot on the beach in the Choom Gang. Obama may be surrounded by people who want to change the world, but for all that he likes the idea of playing messiah, bearing a cross is far too much work for a man of his relaxed inclinations.

I also got a kick out of Obama’s giving himself an “incomplete” when asked to grade his administration. When I was at UCLA, I only knew two guys who received “incompletes” at the end of a semester. In one case, the kid had come down with mononucleosis just before the finals. The other time, a friend of mine, an orthodox Jew, couldn’t take a couple of tests because they conflicted with Rosh Hashanah. So, my question to Barack is: What’s your excuse? Do you have mono or are you Jewish?
