To cure the British disease with socialism was like trying to cure leukemia with leeches.
— Margaret Thatcher

One thing is for certain: people either loved The Iron Lady, or they absolutely hated her, with almost no one in between. May she rest in Peace.

The problem with Socialism is that you eventually run out of other peoples' money. --- Margaret Thatcher

Barack Obama Drinking Game

     I’m sure everyone’s heard about the Rachel Ray drinking game, where you take a drink every time she said “EVOO.”  Friggin’ annoying, that.  Emeril only says “BAM!” once per show, WTF can’t she just say her damn trademark word once, too?
     Well, because those of us who’ve played the game wouldn’t get very lit, now would we?  And we have to be lit to put up with how many times she says it during the show…

     But today, I’ve come with a better one, therefore I propose a new drinking game…

     The Barack Obama drinking game.

     Step one, drink a few beers to get it going, because you’re going to drink some nasty swill.

     Step two, grab your favorite bottle of liquor under $15.

     Step three, find any given broadcast or video of Barack Obama on television, radio, YouTube or whatever.

     The rules are simple: every time Obama says, “Umm,” take a drink.

     The last man standing wins.

     Of course, at the rate he says “Umm,” it should be a short game…

     Here’s a short clip to get you started!

     Abd ify ou passeed out, I win!!!! Im’ the kign ofteh woirld!

Something Obama Said

It’s no big secret that Obama has made the point several times that, “America is the greatest country in the world! And if we stand together, we can make a change!”

The more amusing part about Mr. Obama is the fact that he equates the DNC with the Labor movement found in British Commonwealths.

The idea behind the labor movement is that you don’t walk alone. You’re not by yourself. And each of us are vulnerable by ourselves. Each of us are subject to tragedy and disaster

There’s something very sinister about this to me, because the Labour Party is wholly and entirely made up of Socialists. The Democratic party has been fighting the Socialist stigma for years, yet Mr. Obama comes back with this sort of dialogue?

Socialism believes in Ministry Owned Enterprises and Government Owned Entities. Socialism requires that all workers pull together for the common good. as it insues that everyone is compensated no matter their input to a job. Socialism is what happened to Himmler, and even worse, Hitler.

Socialism = Bad.

Democracy = Good.

Hundreds of other countries already know this.

Why don’t we?

Maybe we should round up all the Canadians and put them into concentration camps just because they’re Canadian. It’s not like they actually contribute to anything but the Florida economy anyway, so who would notice?

If you do not study history, you are bound to repeat its mistakes…

While I think that it is a wonderful idea for economic and social change.  It needs to happen, but to what extent?  More importantly which set of morals should we change to?

First off, socialism is not the answer.  It doesn’t work on a large scale.  An individual will rise to the top of the chain of command and then will push the country into a dictatorship.  See Cuba, Russia (Both the USSR and currently,) a number of South American countries, and many Eastern European countries as well.

More over, I would pull for less government involvement in the personal lives of its citizens and companies.  While I believe safety regulations and environmental controls are a necessary evil.  Let us not get on a high horse and cripple our ability to let our market driven consumerism operate properly. 

The time for change is know, but how are we to do this with our choices for the fiasco in November?  Our elected officials are supposed to be the best and brightest our country can offer.  These choices we have do not fit into this category even remotely.  So I guess I might as well cross my fingers and hope for the best.

Or might just try to change the world through music and let all creation feel the love in the idea of doing what is best for all.  While it may force a few lazy people to get off thier rugged looking rumps and do a hard days work.  Surely everyone can do something to help there fellow man.  All it takes is a little bartering to cover the basic needs of a person.  Together we could make this work.  Unfortunately, I think I’ll probably just be writen off as a hippie nut, but oh well.  I’ll be here doing my thing until I can’t do it anymore.
