Interesting that it has come to light that Obama was the c0-sponsor of the Stand Your Ground law in Illinois. And he voted for it rather than his50% record of voting present.

Look at all the scandals in the political arena and it would seem the more they do in their private life the more votes they get. Honesty seems to be a negative trait these days. Selective law enforcement seems to be working.Slandering,lying, cheating, excusing themselves and blaming others seems to be normal traits. When all that fails they offer bribes or threats and failing that accuse others by calling them rascists. The old saying if you can't keep a job or run a sucessful business there is always politics seems to still hold true.

Hi rangeral and rona45. Good to see you here. I hope you are both well.

If there are any other like-minded readers and/or commenters here, God bless you all.

We may enter difficult times as a nation. It's best to prepare for the worst and hope for the best.

1. Move you retirement, savings, investments etc., out of the stock market and into gold and silver.

2. Open a bank account in a foreign country and start putting money in it. The dollar might become devalued and banks could get ran-on and some could close if this happens.

Look, in reality, Jesus in your only true safeguard for the future. If you understand what I'm saying next, then you will be safe: Begin a personal relationship with God. Forget your church. That's for Sundays. Talk to God. He loves you. Trust in this as you move forward.

I noticed that my last post received 2 agrees. If that was rangeral and rona45, please make a "yes it's me" comment. I have more to say and this comment thread might be the perfect place.

Just thought this might be a good place to offer some insights from me and my circle of freinds, and maybe we can avoid some of these marxist-atheists from chiming in at the same time.

I'm not sure if the Big O will make it thru his 2nd term and martial law wouldn't surprise me. Why do you think the DHS is buying ammo and ordering tanks?

Sad that in the USA, this question would even require asking. The white house has become, quite literally, the fabled backroom of a Chicago bar.

I used to think that Obama wasn't only an empty-suit but a marxist "demon" too, if you will. Now I know he is just an empty suit and it's his handlers that are evil. He truly is a "tool" for Soros, Reid, etc. He is a punk narcissist that conned his way thru everything because he had an ability to speak. Most of his talking is rhetorical and because he had the ability to memorize his marxist teachings he found he liked the "hi" he got from the adulation he received when speaking on campus or wherever. Thug Chicago politics got him everywhere in his career and it rules the day for him and his handlers. Speaking of Chicago, bathhouse Barry might be gay too.

Well, his handlers are smarter than him and someone will have to fall on the sword soon. Do you think Jarrett or Axelrod will take the fall for this little punk?

liberal, you suggested martial law as his next act of treason. I don't care how many tanks he has, he would be living very dangerously in the subsequent dictatorship. The revolutionary spirit of the Founding Fathers is still with us and we will survive Obama.

That's not what I'm predicting. I'm saying the government is preparing in case they need it. This means that even their own people have ran the probability rates on the possible need for martial law and the odds are high enough that they are taking precautions now, not when the time comes. Why else would they spend all the money purchasing ammo and tanks? We're never going to get attacked from another country, not in our lifetime anyway.

Jackson. Your rants are so tiring. One last time please put up or be silent.

Please stratetalk, allow Jackson and the others to continue. I rather enjoy reading the opinions and allegations of individuals who obviously have more insight into the workings of the White House, and politics in general, than the average Lyon County resident. I think its fascinating to learn that our President is actually a "punk narcissist" and conducts business like an organization operating out of the "backroom of a Chicago bar". I had no idea! In fact ALL my friends were stunned to realize how little we knew about our President. So please continue, rangeral, liberal, rona, NBHH and Jacson. We all have so much to learn from you. The truth must be told!

That's the most pragmatic, logical and wisest comment you have ever made. Well done. Keep it up and keep reading what I say. There may be help for you yet. Let my words sink in and slowly over time, and when O is impeached or resigns, the light might actually go on.

Remember, God loves each of us equally. You too. Good luck and God bless.

Don't stop now NBHH and liberal. I want ALL the truth. Who are the "marxist-atheists" and why is DHS buying guns and tanks? Does that mean they are going to invade Texas and overthrow Gov. Perry? Does Obama need a majority of Democrats in the Senate and House to initiate his bid to become Dictator of America? Do you think Mitch McConnell and John Boehner could be secret agents actually working with Obama to help him destroy the U.S.? How do you tell the difference between marxist-atheists and those who claim to be members of the tea party? Is there a secret sign or handshake? The lame-stream media must be involved in Obama's plot also because they never report this stuff. BTW, when you guys are stocking your underground bunkers, which do you prefer freeze dried or dehydrated? Please let me know ASAP since I want to start digging this weekend.

The marxist-atheists are you and your like-minded freinds that make comments here. The tanks and ammo for the DHS is to keep the citizens "in line" when the chaos from the collapse of the dollar occurs. Obama will never be dictator of the U.S. because we will disband state-by-state before allowing that to happen, or we will rise up and overthrow the Democrats in power at the time of the attempted move towards a socialist-dictatorship. Mcconnell and Boehner are rino's that would never help Obama do that. I only need to listen to someone like you and then listen to a tea partier to know the difference between marxism etc. And don't bother stocking up on supplies, you are a useful idiot and will be shot by the current administration because your usefulness will be gone when it happens. Get it?

Last night I listened in on a late night meeting of my cat and a family of ra***** under the full moon. I believe they were discussing these posts. Their opinions had a better grasp of reality.

Hartman, your right about the lame-stream media not reporting anything that may damage the one. Here are just a few they failed to dig into or not disclose off the top of my head: Occidental College records; Columbia College records; Columbia Thesis paper; Harvard College record; Medical records; Illinois State Senate records; Harvard Law Review articles; University of Chicago scholarly articles; Certified Copy of original Birth certificate; Law practice clients. liberal, I would ignore comments that delight in offending those who do not share their belief system, which is very characteristic of the left.

twobysix, thank you for the advice. However, I know quite well what we're up against and I'm not offended by them. Rather, I'm saddened by their degree of foolishness. It pains me to know they hold onto their statist belief system as their religion. Obama isn't the real threat to our republic, it's voters that put him and his ilk in power that is the threat.

As far as hartman goes, I've slapped him around so often on these threads it's become comical. But when you're dealing with a fool, the challenge becomes void.

Based on all you mentioned 2x6, what is the media not reporting? As you claim Obama only had a certified copy of his birth certificate, NOT the original AND the media is hiding information contained in his Medical records. Who knows they COULD be hiding the fact Obama is really a woman. That might explain why he's sympathetic to Muslims and Islamist's because we all know women like to wear scarves and robes! We must follow Limbaugh and Hannity for they are the beacons of freedom. We must stand up against our government and destroy the institutions that keep us in bondage like our schools and refuse collection. The socialists, communists, Marxists, narcissists and other ists must be defeated. The truth about Obama's devious plan to become a Dictator must be stopped. We must work to destroy those who don't share our vision of freedom for all. Just remember that Jesus loves you all, so I don't have to.

It's time our country held these people to a standard. We can't go back in time to correct the behaviors of Kennedy, Nixon, Bush, Clinton etc, but we can put an end to accepting this behavior.

Hello commonman. Obama? A whole new low. At least the Presidents immediately before didn't set the USA self-destruct button. A sinister puppet, to the extent that now, deceit and scandal are the rule rather than the exception. The one good thing though? At least there is no where to go but up.

Thank you commonman. We have disagreed in the past, but you are spot on with your comment. Corruption isn't a liberal vs. conservative issue. It's a right vs. wrong issue. But I also agree with NBHH in that Obama and his administration have sunk us to a new low in corruption.

Now Obama is a sinister puppet?! Are you sure he's not a muppet NBHH, because that would make him cute. Who is the audience you and liberal hope to target with your ridiculous allegations? No individual with a thought process greater than a goldfish could be swayed by terms like “sinister puppet” and “Marxist-atheists”. Right-wing extremists, like yourself, do more damage to our country than those you indict.

“According to the National Consortium for the Study of Terrorism and Responses to Terrorism, right-wing terrorists perpetrated 145 "ideologically motivated homicide incidents" between 1990 & 2010. In that same period, "al Qaeda affiliates, al Qaeda-inspired extremists, & secular Arab Nationalists committed 27 homicide incidents in the United States involving 16 perpetrators or groups of perpetrators."

One of our greatest rights is free speech. It’s a shame to see it used to instill fear & hatred.
