Are you awake, America?

Journalist George Will calls Barack Obama and the left’s preoccupation with racism as its “Tourette’s syndrome,” a neurological disorder associated with repeated verbal attacks without substance.

Obama’s modus operandi is to unite the low-information liberals into believing racism is why America is sinking faster than a cement-laden snitch in the Sopranos, rather than his socialist policies.

The president on Feb. 10, 2014, said, “That’s the good thing about being president. I can do whatever I want.” He’s proposed 442 tax increases since 2010. He’s changed the poorly constructed “Obamacare” law dozens of times (not in his purview as the executive) and lied about it repeatedly. His attorney general is in contempt of Congress for failure to produce documents on Fast and Furious and Benghazi. His National Security Agency spies on its own people for no good reason, the powerful Internal Revenue Service harasses and discriminates against those in the opposition party and the Social Security Administration penalizes relatives of people who received a refund a half-century ago.

“Fascism is radical authoritarian nationalism that promotes the mass mobilization of the national community characterized by having a vanguard party that initiates a revolutionary political movement aiming to reorganize the nation along principles according to fascist ideology.” I guess this is what Obama promised when he said he would “fundamentally change the country.”

The greater evil may lie with the national media, which has abrogated any journalistic integrity in order to protect and insulate Barack Hussein Obama, America’s first black president and its most dangerous to date.

At the Tax Day rally in Sacramento on April 15, I saw a sign that read, “America, are you awake yet?” Are you awake, America?

    Did you ever think for a moment that the mainstream media was ever anything other than a propaganda tool? It's been that way since before our country was founded. What's changed is the ability of the people to use their BS filter.

    Apparently there are still people running around in the stuporous fog inside the right wing bubble. They look like they are awake, until they open their mouths or write letters like these to the editor. Snap out of it. Change the channel.

    Apparently there are still people running around in the stuporous fog inside the left wing bubble. They look like they are awake, until they open their mouths or write Newspaper columns like Mike Kirchubel. Snap out of it. Change the channel. ... Potted plant calling the planted kettle black... ? Marci have you been paying attention? Are you WAKING UP yet, that both sides are Bad? 9/11 was an inside job on the Republican NEOCON Cheney/Bush watch, with the complete help of the top Democrats ( otherwise they would have told us 9/11 was an inside job, and the Bilderbergs picked Obama for president, Romney and McCain were their alternate choices )... Why do we allow this rigging of the Political stage, why always the lesser of two evils, when really both are just as evil?

    Madeline, politicians lie sometimes intentionally, oftentimes a strategic method for further debate. Have you all ready conceded the next election to the Democrats? Probably wise to prepare yourself now then it won't hurt so much.

    This country is turning left because the republicans are turning left , I don’t think this election in November is about much of the democrats VS the republicans because I have little doubt the republicans will take the senate but what kind of republicans are we going to have? Hopefully one`s that take us back to the true right

    Jag, be very careful what you wish for. Unless you're a white heterose*ual god fearing male? If so, no worries for you.

    For me this is not a conservative/liberal thing. Its the fundamental denial or seeming blindness to any experience outside of a very narrow, very personal, experience. Denying another person's personal experience of racial treatment is not okay. It is shameful and harmful. The so-called white experience does not cover all experiences. when someone brings up an experience different than yours it is not okay to 1) think YOU are being discriminated against because the other party also wants the privileges and rights that YOU enjoy, and 2) think (or act) in a way to discount their view because their concern does not effect you so it must not be real or important. individually all people experience hardships. However denying that there are system- and structural- hardships woven into our society and institutions is wrong-headed and short-sighted for our future as people and as an American people. for those who don't see this yet please be willing to do what you need to expand and learn how others might see the world. THAT is survival, not circling the wagons.
