Random Thoughts on Mr. Thompson's Speech

What about Sudan? What about Ivory Coast? What about Cuba, for that matter? China? What about every other third-world excrement pit where the women (and more than a few men and children) are raped, or hacked to death with machetes? Are we now to be wholly subservient to the U.N., NATO, or some extra-Constitutional body or foreign government? What exactly is our foreign policy? Why did we not act even sooner if our policy at the time was that Qaddafi "must go"? Why did we not use targeted strikes to eliminate Qaddafi and his lieutenants? Why did Congress end the Viet Nam war by de-funding military operations instead of using the freshly minted War Powers Act, which they passed over Nixon's veto? (N.B.- the U.N. resolution number regarding the Lybia situation is 1973.) Why are the House Republicans not doing the same thing now? Why did the President's speech last so long? Why was he not speaking from the Oval Office?


I have my own answers for these questions. You, dear reader, may have your own as well. Some questions are easier to answer than others. But the only answers which follow a consistent, honest, and rational line of thought are those that reveal the President's desire to abandon the Constitution, fundamentally transform the United States, and reduce our prominence and importance in the world. This is his vision of our foreign policy for the bright shining future.


President Obama is a Marxist. His administration is Marxist. The politicians and media who support him are Marxist. Do you not believe this is true? The Communist Manifesto, wholly uninteresting to a sound mind, contains a section known as the "ten pillars of communism" See if you can't find the President, his administration, and his followers in these statements:

1. Abolition of property in land and application of all rents of land to public purposes.


2. A heavy progressive or graduated income tax.


3. Abolition of all rights of inheritance.


4. Confiscation of the property of all emigrants and rebels.


5. Centralization of credit in the banks of the state, by means of a national bank with state capital and an exclusive monopoly.


6. Centralization of the means of communication and transport in the hands of the state.


7. Extension of factories and instruments of production owned by the state; the bringing into cultivation of waste lands, and the improvement of the soil generally in accordance with a common plan.


8. Equal obligation of all to work. Establishment of industrial armies, especially for agriculture.


9. Combination of agriculture with manufacturing industries; gradual abolition of all the distinction between town and country by a more equable distribution of the populace over the country.


10. Free education for all children in public schools. Abolition of children's factory labor in its present form. Combination of education with industrial production, etc. etc.

Extra Credit:

1. Which ObamAdiministration official offered Chairman Mao as a favorite political philosopher?


2. Which ObamAdministration official self-identified as a "communist revolutionary?"


3. Which ObamAdministration official praised Britain's failed National Health?


4. What was the Kelo decision?


5. How many tax brackets do we have in the IRS code, and how are they structured?


6. What is the percentage of tax on estates in the U.S.?


7. How do we stop jobs from being "shipped overseas"?


8. What is the Federal Reserve? FHA? HUD? Fannie Mae? Freddie Mac?


9. What function is served by the FCC? What is Amtrak?


10. How many farmers work at the Department of Agriculture? Which automobile manufacturer is owned by the federal government? What is General Electric?


11. Who is the president of the AFL/CIO?


12. What are BioFuels?


13. True or False: Education would cease if the federal Department of Education was eliminated.

Extra Extra Credit:
Explain, in 500 words or less, why "spreading the wealth around" is better for everyone. Use evidence to support your arguments.
Good luck. This should be easy if you are intellectually honest.
