    Obama is a traitor, a chicken shit, or believes that he himself is a villain to the Constitution of the United States. He is too immature to realize that he and his cohorts can be seen for the miscreants that they are. And now, most Americans have acknowledged that the American Foreign-policy/economic mess intentionally thrust on the American people was not for the good of the country nor Americans as individuals. Enough of them know why this misgovernance was done so that it is desireable by a majority to affect a military overthrow and immediate new free National elections here in America.Of course, the process by which new National Congressmen would be chosen by their respective state governments.Obama and Hillary Clinton be damned.

    It’s not a prediction -unless seems at east -somewhat unlikely-, or even just a tad theatrically fantastic.

    But in these times, -these very disturbing times, -times when virtually every word given the American people by the government is a -calculated lie-, -times like these- when push -is- coming to shove, and hunger has every possibility of turning into famine, —the Americans -will blame-, attack and attempt to devour anything they can scavenge now. The war-footing being built -this time- is on an odd -personal- level.

    In our feebly clever and modern American society -where everything that sustains life is literally delivered on a digitally-controlled electronic conveyor-belt that runs from the end of every asphalt by-way the trucks run upon, -when that conveyor-belt ceases to deliver the necessities of life, -and prices double, -then triple, -and then quadruple -again -and again, -we all can expect the rats in the American digital maze to adopt -new and much more appropriate attitudes about the reality of their tenuous imperial existence, -and especially about those who made the clearly inappropriate spiel and the tortured-justifications for the necessity of bailing-out so many banksters, -and Israel too?

    There are a lot of faces in America right now -that are twisted and cocked in disbelief.

    In our historic theme of the day here on Desert Peace, let us -all- imagine Barack and Michelle Obama, our brown President and his black wife, getting the curtain-call to play the parts of Louis the XVI and Marie Antoinette.

    He could be -THE ONE- –Oprah. He’s -the one- who has got SICK-LYING-BASTARD written all over his face, and it is so deeply etched in his “I-hava-dream” persona, -that the guillotine could make a comeback -specifically for the purpose of dethroning -The Prince- who came to reign from the tough Southside Chicago gang-land sewer out of which he crawled, scrapping, scraping, and fighting the tough fight -to get to the top, -just because it is -there- in a pathological sense common to every American President.

    Certainly American attitudes about -appropriate violence- are changing -rapidly- in an era of Joe Stack. These new attitudes appear to be out-of-control, and growing into a cultural avalanche of justifiable-retribution, and even perhaps -a raw vigilante justice of some sort or other.

    Hush, Patriots!

    I hear a little demon whispering in my ear right now, “Vengeance -cannot be far off.”

    My God, -We live in interesting times!

    Obama does that what Bush did and worse but with a smile.

    …it is all rigged – Democracy by Keywords: parliament, election etc..

    You will have no power until you take it away from the elites.

    Put him in an open limo and run him through my state of Texas. Run him through the streets of Dallas – near the grassy knoll. I want a chance to have my daddy’s friends have at him.

    Don Robertson you are correct. We are living in very interesting times….

    I thought the article itself was splendid. Obama is without doubt a Machiavellian Leader.

    Thank goodness we have people out there who are capable of putting into words (often brilliantly); that which many people recognise, see and feel; but are not articulate enough to express it adequately, verbally, or via the written word.

    One thing does cross my mind though; why during this ‘act’ of the ‘play’ is the ‘Prince’ along with his minions even bothering to disguise true intentions?

    I say this, because in Iceland the people held a referendum in which 93% of the people voted overwhelmingly to eject proposals to pay the UK and the Netherlands in the wake of collapse of the Icesave bank.

    Even though the Icelandic people have stated unequivocally, that the plan should be rejected and that they are not prepared to be penalised for the mistakes of the banking industry; and even though the UK government used anti-terrorist legislation to freeze Icesave assets in the country; the Icelandic Government (who are negotiating to pay regardless, even though it will bankrupt the country) stated that “The referendum has no impact on the life of the government” and that they will push on anyway.

    It seems to me, that even though the icelandic government are clearly not brilliant students and disciples of Nicolò Machiavelli. and even though the audience have reached the point where they are throwing rotton tomatoes, it makes absolutely no difference really as the ‘play will go on’…….

    “Put him in an open limo and run him through my state of Texas. Run him through the streets of Dallas – near the grassy knoll. I want a chance to have my daddy’s friends have at him.”

    With no due respect to this comment, where do I begin?

    “My daddy’s friends”? Who are these friends of your daddy’s pray tell who you offer up to take care of Obama “near the grassy knoll”? Are they kin to the dark powers that be who assassinated Kennedy, since surely this is what you are referencing in this statement?

    Sick, just SICK to suggest even in jest that your “daddy’s friends” can “have at him” (Obama) and this will solve ANYTHING regarding the mess that our country is in now. You are no better than whatsoever than the teabaggers, the Oath Taker militias, NONE of them. Disgusting DISGUSTING comment which has not one thing to do with Mary Rizzo’s brilliant commentary on Obama.

    What do you expect? He is the political leader of perhaps the most important capitalist country and class today. But so was FDR. Fascism is still an alternative waiting in the wings; it can get worse. Those of us carrying on a struggle to effectively win the minds of the working class need profound analysis and carefully planned activity, not useless vitriol. We remain immersed in the working class, in the belly of the beast and need all the help we can get. This is a difficult struggle with profound implications for the future of the world’s people. Your positive assistance is anxiously awaited and welcomed.
