To Paraphrase MLK, "I Have a Nightmare"

Original post made by John, Downtown, on May 25, 2009

For those of you who supported Obama for President (including the Pleasanton Weekly), have you stopped to see what is happening to America? Here is an article by David Solway which should be very sobering to all of us who care about this country. (The link is provided at the bottom)

Well I imagine that they feel pretty good about it right now as for many of them this "is change you can believe in". Honestly, many of the people who voted for Obama have been so woefully brainwashed by the school system it is pathetic. Based on what they said in class I bet over 90% of the PUSD teachers voted for Obama. The article did omit a couple of things. First, instead of ending the wars in Iraq and Afganistan as promised we have more troops engaged and/or committed than before he was elected and in spite of this violence is escalating. In addition, in a time of economic downturn more servicemen and women are opting out of service and returning to civil life and also recruitment targets are not being met or even close to it because in part I suspect people do not want to fight and potentially die for a president and congress who loathe the military and now I guess the CIA for that matter. Has anyone noticed that Iran is more aggressive than ever and oh by the way North Korea just exploded a nuclear warhead today in addition to firing off 3 long range missiles? Obama said today he will let the UN Security Council figure out what to do and take the lead. That sure makes me feel better knowing that we are now going to depend on the UN for our security. We need to sit back and take a look at what is happening in our own state economically as this is the direction he is taking the rest of the United States. One of the reasons you do not hear the left making noise (other than to do some childish namecalling) is that these are facts and it is hard to admit you made a huge mistake or maybe it is hard for them.

Remember the story of Alice in Wonderland? Nancy Pelosi is the Queen of Hearts, Harry Reid is the White Rabbit and Obama is the Mad Hatter, Hillary Clinton and Joe Biden are Tweedle Dee and Tweedle DUMB! No one knows what is going on, they just keep having press conference after press conference.....the hole is getting deeper and deeper, lets hope we don't all disappear, what a nightmare for our country to have this group of fools in command!

Yes. You are right, Bush really was smart and doing a stellar job. You think he wants to come back? Or better yet the white trash imbicille from Alaska? Maybe instead of constantly complaining you get off you big priviledged behind and get involved with making this country great Again!
