Funny how the Obama haters can't say exactly why they hate him

Is it the 15 cent Christmas tree tax?

I don't think so.

Hate for Obama is something they can't explain by anything Obama has done or not done.

Just they hate him because... well, you know.

Name a single action by the Democrats or Obama that has inched us down the road toward banishing the constitutional right to vote for our political leaders?

I'm more concerned about my Constitutional right not to be on a secret government hit list of American citizens. You know, the whole due process thing.

The USA Patriot Act could be used to suspend elections in an emergency, where emergency is defined at the sole discretion of the president. Pretty much, the president can do anything under the USA Patriot Act.

Of course, Republicans are mostly responsible for that act.

Why did so fiscally responsible Obama reappoint all the same people back that caused the financial collapse in the first place? The only person that was let go was Greenspan, and that was before Obama even took the office.

Why are government unions, LAUSD for example, no matter how much money is thrown at them always spend more than they take in?.... someone isn't very responsible with money.

2 of the 4 Obama has never even spoken to (one died when he was 10 years old!)

Only one of those people on your list is even someone that you could say had any influence on the man, and the only things you know about him are a few controversial out-of-context video clips that were used to attempt to harm Obama in the 2008 election.

And the funny thing about that one person is that the "controversial" stuff that he said would be completely agreed upon by most of the Obama haters if it came out of the mouth of a white conservative. It's all very anti-government, pro-God, pro-individual rah rah bullshit.

You don't have to be important to have your rights trampled on, to be tortured, falsely imprisoned, or executed. Just ask the Uighurs. Just ask Rodney King.

Just ask Abner Louima, the innocent nobody who was tortured and raped by police including having a plunger put up his ass literally. And for what? The police mistakenly identified him for some guy who got in a street fight outside of a nightclub.

If you think you are safe because you are a nobody, you're dumber than you sound. You are not safe because you are a nobody. People who are connected to power and wealth are safe. Nobodies like you and me are not.

Furthermore, more people have died from Stalin and Hitler each than have died from all the criminals and all the terrorists in all of history combined. The power of the state to do evil is far greater than the power of terrorists. You are far more likely to be killed by your own government than by some terrorist.

Why wait? I've listed plenty of reasons to dislike, even hate, Obama.

I wonder, however, are your reasons going to be important ones, and if so, won't they also apply to the vast majority of Republicans? After all, Obama is more of a Republican than a Democrat in policy. He's more like Bush than he's like Ted Kennedy by far. Hell, he's more like Bush than he's like Bill Clinton or Jimmy Carter. Hell, he's more like Bush than that guy on SNL who impersonates him.

I'm quite certain that a "decent person" by that standard would never be president.

Even a well intentioned president (or, really, the leader of any country) is going to have to do some pretty vile things. People who always do the right thing rarely make effective leaders.

There's a big difference between "always doing the morally right thing even when it's dangerous" versus "fuck all human rights, I'll kill anyone who looks funny to me". It's a false dichotomy to say either you have to abandon human rights, habeas corpus, and rule of law or you have to let the terrorists will win.

Today is the safest time in all of human existence. You are less likely to be murdered than at any other time in the past 200,000 years. But if you are murdered, it's far more likely to be your government doing the evil deed than a terrorist.

Kevin says

I'm quite certain that a "decent person" by that standard would never be president.

As far as I know, Bill Clinton, Reagan, Carter, Ford, Nixon, Johnson, Kennedy, Eisenhower all were presidents without suspending habeas corpus, without torturing, without having lists of U.S. citizens to assassinate. And the cold war was every bit as trying as the war on terror.

We cannot win the war on terror by making our government the biggest terrorist organization in the world.

So your definition of "decent person" seems to be "only kills people and does other horrible things to people who aren't american citizens*"

I wouldn't doubt for even a second that any one of those men (well, maybe not carter, he's kind of a pussy) would have ordered the killing or detention of american citizens had they been viewed as a threat the way that the government currently views organized terrorism.

* And even that also happened. Kent State anyone?

Dan8267 says

We can not "win" the war on terror, period.

We should also not be bringing hyperbole here. What government actions are being done for the sole purpose of frightening people into meeting some demand or changing their way of life?

Governments do appalling things all the time, which is why they must be held accountable, but to act like anything that has happened over the last decade is really new is laughable. From the treatment of native americans, to the civil war, to blacks, to unions, to student protestors, to war protestors, there's plenty of history of our own government doing shitty things.

I firmly believe that any president in office would be doing the same, or worse, than anything that Obama has done. Everyone who has run for the office in the last 10 years has promised to do exactly that.

The only thing that's going to get the government to stop doing these horrible things is for the citizens to stand up and say that it's wrong. When a strong majority of people believe that it's OK to shoot anyone that is identified as a possible terrorist threat, you should be happy that we're at least still respecting the constitution when on american soil.

You pulled that out of your ass, not out of my philosophy. Try again.

My only point is that none of the prior administrations had gone to the extreme level of evil that the current and past one did. Therefore, you are incorrect in concluding that this level of evil is necessary to combat terrorism or ensure national security. Your statement is empirically false.

Any conclusion beyond that is your assertion, not mine.

Kennedy and Eisenhower certainly would not. And as for Carter, not killing innocents hardly makes one a pussy.

Then the Constitution shouldn't be suspended during this period of indefinite war.

Kevin says

Governments do appalling things all the time, which is why they must be held accountable, but to act like anything that has happened over the last decade is really new is laughable.

Gitmo, the suspension of Habeas Corpus, government stating that assassination of U.S. citizens is legal are all new in American history. So yes, our government has become materially worse in the past 12 years.

Kevin says

I firmly believe that any president in office would be doing the same, or worse, than anything that Obama has done.

And there you are wrong. There are no fewer than 1 million Americans who would have done a better and more ethical job than Obama, and that's an extremely conservative estimate.

Kevin says

Everyone who has run for the office in the last 10 years has promised to do exactly that.

Except Ron Paul, Dennis Kucinich, and Ralph Nadar. And if people voted for these two instead of all the assholes, there would be more people like them in office. Electing people like Elizabeth Warren and William Black would help a lot too.

And on that, we agree. Well, except that I don't believe "we're" respecting the Constitution on American soil.

What has Obama actually done to negate any of those values and beliefs? He's only a president, you know.

I can understand being against Obama: Obamacare seems like another givaway to Big Health Insurance.

As for the economy, I'm not sure what Obama (or any other president) can do to revive an economy suffering from the necessary debt-deleveraging "hangover" that comes after a period of irrational exuberance.

What I think we need is sound money. Ultra low interest rates encourage "yield chasing," excessive risk-taking, and serial bubbles.

I said Lord Barry is only a man. Where did I place blame for today's situation on him? He is only a representative figure of the "problem" in my estimation.

@thunderlips,
I'm pretty sure Lord Barry's group has taken a position on immigration, God in public, guns, gays, welfare, and issues such as those, that does not match the position of -- lets say, Tea Party people -- for example. And, as in my example, members of Lord Barry's group do not seem to like/agree/embrace the America depicted in those shows I put up. While I think we can all agree that the Tea Party members are depicted in such shows, or at least associate with them in a positive way. I just used some shows that most folks would know, and to save a bunch of time with details and explanations to only have them be thrown out. That may have been a bad medium to choose.

But, to be honest, I am not sure what you are looking for in the way of examples. My original premis may lack the detail to satisfy your question.

Bap - You're right on. In fact there is a book called "Surviving Civil War II. Preparing for Economic, Social, and Political Collapse".

It postulates only two possible outcomes: (1) the productive class, for generations to come, resigns themselves to involuntary servitude. Political and economic bondage. Slavery if you will. OR (2) There is a civil war and revolt of the productive class. In other words, an economic default on the requirement and obligation to support the non-productive class.

Whats surprising to me is how a small, bitter, jealous, envious, manipulative, pathologically dependent, highly vocal crowd can sway public opinion and get laws passed that are slowly but surely destroying America. Creeping tyranny.

America was founded in 1776, not the 1950s. Furthermore, America's foundation, although an improvement over the feudalism and monarchies, was hardly a perfect society. There were many injustices including slavery, object poverty, child labor, racism, sexism, and nationalism. American's history is a series of struggles to right those wrongs and others while battling those who would return to those injustices.

And those injustices all have one thing in common: one group of people having control over another group of people.

The 1950s were no utopia. It was the height of McCarthyism. The KKK ran uncheck. And the federal government was providing sanctuary to Nazi war criminals in order to get an edge over the Soviets in rocketry. Meanwhile, the threat of nuclear annihilation was a constant fear.

From the shows you listed, I an only surmise that the goal you with to accomplish is a sexless society. This simply isn't going to happen. And the Republicans and social conservatives aren't going to decrease the amount of premarital sex no matter what they do. Just rent any Girls Gone Wild video. Notice that all the girls have red state accents. That's not a coincident. You'll never see an MIT, UC Berkley, or Harvard coed showing her titties on GGW.

Christian fundamentalism took off as a way to keep girls and women from having sex. It has completely and utterly failed to do so. It turns out that the more educated a woman is, the likely she is to appear on GGW. So, instead of trying to replace evolution with bible studies, you should be doing the opposite if you want there to be less promiscuity.

Ultimately as long as birth control exists, there will be promiscuity. And no politician is going to get birth controlled banned no matter how much he/she wants to. The demand for birth control is simply too great that our society isn't going to let the government take it away no matter what.

However, it's really sad that people still obsess over promiscuity when there are so many other, far more important issues to deal with. Issues like genocide, war, energy independence, pollution, rising sea levels, the income gap, counter-progressive taxation, America's brain drain, fraudulent banking, an unstable financial sector built on fraud and speculation, deteriorating and obsolete infrastructure, etc.

So stop trying to use government to force people into chastity. It won't work. It has never worked. It will never work. And that's not what government is for. As long as you try to use government for this purpose, it cannot function effectively at dealing with the problems that it should address.

Are we talking about Bush or Obama here? Why do you see Obama as evil incarnate and not Bush, they are really pretty hard to tell apart as presidents, other than Obama not starting any wars yet.

That's just it. The difference between Bush and Obama is purely cultural. Their economics are pretty much the same.

We just love fighting the same old culture wars over Gays, Guns, n' God.
