There are no subtleties with Obama

Of Tyrants & Tyranny

"When governments fear the people there is liberty. When the people fear the government there is tyranny."
— Thomas Jefferson (attributed to Jefferson, by his contemporaries)

"The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government."

— Thomas Jefferson (attributed to Jefferson, by his contemporaries)

"... rightful liberty is unobstructed action according to our own will within limits drawn around us by the equal rights of others. I do not add 'within the limits of the law,' because law is often but the tyrant's will, and always so when it violates the right of an individual"
— Thomas Jefferson (Letter to Isaac H. Tiffany - 1819)

“Of all tyrannies, a tyranny exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive.”
— C.S. Lewis

“Tyrants have always some slight shade of virtue; they support the laws before destroying them”
— Voltaire

“The worst form of tyranny the world has ever known the tyranny of the weak over the strong. It is the only tyranny that lasts.”

—  Oscar Wilde quotes

“When the tyrant has disposed of foreign enemies by conquest or treaty and there is nothing to fear from them, then he is always stirring up some war or other, in order that the people may require a leader.”
— Plato

“The tyranny of a prince in an oligarchy is not so dangerous to the public welfare as the apathy of a citizen in a democracy”

 — Charles de Montesquieu

And, in rebuttal (drumroll)

"Reject voices that warn of government tyranny"
President Barack (nee Barry) Obama Soetoro; commencement address to the graduating class of The Ohio State University

e-mail cap

Yeah, Gary . . . Dennis Miller or somebody did a little riff on somethin like that a few months ago. Think I saw it in a YouTube clip I got in e-mail. This is better, tho.

And this mornin on FoxNews, the subject of where to bury Tamerlan Tsarnaev came up. Apparently no cemetery in or around Boston will allow its being buried there. So Brian Kilmeade said, "Why do we have to bury him anyway?" Then Gretchen Carlson said that she thinks cremation is somehow abhorrent to Muslims. So then Kilmeade says, "Well, why can't we just put his body in a bag and dump it in the ocean like we did with bin Laden?"

During the next segment, with Stu Varney, Kilmeade wasn't on the set any more and I thought to myself, "Oh, JFC! Some PC cop has got to the executive producer and Kilmeade is being severely chastised, or fired, or both. But he was back later, still his smiling wise-cracking self.

This in-your-face president is, again, celebrating that he can effectively trump truth by making declarations that turn it on its heels. Obama transcends anyone's ability to accurately express the depth of his evil, and breadth of his wickedness.

Antonia W. "Toni" Larroux

Antonia W. "Toni" Larroux

Waffle House lost a loyal customer on April 30, 2013. Antonia W. "Toni" Larroux died after a battle with multiple illnesses: lupus, rickets, scurvy, kidney disease and feline leukemia. She had previously conquered polio as a child contributing to her unusually petite ankles and the nickname "polio legs" given to her by her ex-husband, Jean F. Larroux, Jr.

It should not be difficult to imagine the multiple reasons for their divorce 35+ years ago. Two children resulted from that marriage: Hayden Hoffman and Jean F. Larroux, III. Due to multiple, anonymous Mother's Day cards which arrived each May, the children suspect there were other siblings but that has never been verified.

Well, now I miss Antonia and I didn’t even know her.  And, may the person who wrote this please write my obituary.  I might just sound like I had an interesting life.

Agreed.  Possibly the best obituary ever writ.
