Frustration

"There is a New America every morning when we wake up. It is upon us whether we will it or not." ~ Adlai E. Stevenson Jr.

I'm sorry I haven't posted any entries the last few days. The fact is, besides being distracted by economic problems here at home, which I can't seem to solve, I have been completely overwhelmed with the frightening amount of egregious acts and statements issuing from the Oval office. I suspect my personal economic problems and Obama's "change" are connected, but that connection as yet, remains to be proven.

There are simply too many things going on with Barack Hussein Obama, I can't focus on just one of them. Any one of his decisions have the potential for driving the United States of America over the cliff to our doom. And amazingly, he has accomplished this much in less than two weeks!

At this rate we will have a full blown Marxist dictatorship inside of two years.

I don't know what to comment on first.

I fear we are witnessing the final death throes of the United States of America.

Obama is intent on change, alright. He wants to change this country from the United States of America to the United Soviet States of America.

From his first day, every thing he has done is a disaster in the making. From signing the order to close GITMO, suspending trials for the terrorists, cutting our military budget by 10% (that's just the beginning of the dismantling of the military, mark my words), threatening to abolish free speech, to the capping of Wall Street executive's salaries.

What gives Obama the right to dictate (key word)how much executives can make? What gives him the right to limit how much any one can make? Today it's the Wall street executives. Tomorrow it may be you. That's Marxism at it's worst!

Can't the American people see what he's doing?

He has the power and he has the political backing of the other Marxists in the two houses of Congress, and if he stays in office long enough, and has the opportunity, he will pack the Supreme Court with Marxist judges.

He is taking us further into Socialism with every executive order, with every pronouncement, and with every concession he makes to the enemies of our country. And I include on that list enemies of America who call themselves Americans while actively trying to undermine America's security and freedoms.

What has to happen for Americans to rise up and throw this Marxist bum out on his ear? Does he have to declare himself "Dictator for Life" before the American people wake up and see what he's doing?

So. What can we do? We need to clean house, that much is certain. But, how do we do it?

I don't have anywhere enough of a readership to accomplish anything. I feel as if I'm talking to a wall. I have no power to lead a grassroots movement against this traitorous government.

But we need to act. Now. We need to let our voices be heard. Now. We need to throw these bums out, and the sooner, the better. Perhaps, if we move quickly enough, we can salvage what's left of our liberty.

Make no mistake. Obama is systematically destroying our country. And he's not even being subtle. He is blatantly dismantling the Constitution before our very eyes and we seem to be powerless to stop him.

We can write our Representatives in Congress. We can jam the Congressional switchboards with our calls. We can take to the streets and shout our frustration to the world. But the problem with that is this:

The media are in the tank for Obama, and our protests will not be heard. The Democrats in Congress are backing Obama, and will back him all the way to our death, and most of the Republican Representatives are spineless. They will sit back, watch, and complain.

Which is, by the way, the only thing we ordinary freedom loving Americans can do.

God help us all.

How do your REALLY feel , Mark?

America has had a good run. Best in the history of this planet, by far. But all good things come to an end. The native hordes have over run us. Our forebears worried about this. Our Republic fell, now our Democracy is falling. The rabble and unwashed masses have taken over. Let them loot the treasury so they can buy new sneakers and faux gold chains.

The crash of the global economy will result in a culling of the planet's population by starvation. Perhaps a few million will survive...

At some point, a new Nation of Freedom will arise from the ashes, maybe not in our lifetime. A post-apocalyptic nation not plagued by mass insanity. Maybe travel to a new earth somewhere in space.
In the meantime all we can do is cling to our bibles and guns, and try to get hooked up on the government soup lines..
Have a nice day... and
KEEP YOUR POWDER DRY!

Mark said...

Yeah, Thanks, Rick. That really cheered me up.

Mark said...

I, for one, am not prepared to go gently into that good night. They will have to drag me into Marxism kicking and screaming. I will die before I give in to these bastartds. I will fight them to the death. That is my promise.

Pamela D. Hart said...

Mark, I feel your frustration. I've been telling my husband we're already over the threshold of socialism it's now a question of how far into the house we go. The biggest problem is most Americans don’t know what socialism is. And the sources of media they go to (the left) sure as heck won’t inform them.
I also said if anyone could be president for life it will be Obama. What we do about it? Well, I'm not sure, yet. I guess we just can’t give up and we can’t lose faith.

Timothy said...

I think your key comment is that there are so many things wrong with this administration, and what they are saying and trying to do, it's overwhelming...

Mark said...

Absolutely, Pastor Tim, Obama's making his "changes" so fast we don't have time to object.

Mark said...

Pamela, you are correct, also. Most Americans have no idea how bad Socialism is, which is why I wrote an extensive post
on the subject shortly before the elections.

As usual, my warning fell on deaf ears.

Gayle said...

"I don't have anywhere enough of a readership to accomplish anything. I feel as if I'm talking to a wall. I have no power to lead a grassroots movement against this traitorous government." I feel your frustration, Mark, because I, like most of us bloggers, am in the same boat.

I also understand that there's so much going on with Obama's administration that it's hard to pick just one topic, as all of it equals destruction to our country. I'm simply fed up, but not knowing what to do about any of this is about to drive me to drink!

Most Rev. Gregori said...

Mark, I keep hearing people, especially those on the right, keep saying: "What can we do? Our hands are tied."

What I would like to know is what the hell will it take to get people to rise up in a good old fashioned revolution? Marching in the streets, boycotts, etc., will not work, it will take a heck of a lot more then that, but it takes balls and I am afraid that the American people have been neutered.

We cannot afford to wait four years for people's gonads to drop, because by then there will be nothing left to save.

Like you, I have no desire to go like a sheep into Marxism, but it damn well be good to know that I have the American people watching my back, but I doubt that will happen.

From his first day, every thing he has done is a disaster in the making. From signing the order to close GITMO, suspending trials for the terrorists, cutting our military budget by 10% (that's just the beginning of the dismantling of the military, mark my words), threatening to abolish free speech, to the capping of Wall Street executive's salaries.

Well let's analyze this paragraph of outright bull one by one.

Part the first: Bush was planning on closing Gitmo.

Part the second: Obama is working to find a way to try suspected terrorists that actually follows the law.

Part the third: Obama is NOT cutting the defense budget. THAT IS A LIE. He is calling for a reduction in the Pentagon's blue sky "budget" request that will be an INCREASE over the 2007 Bush budget.

Part the fourth: Obama has not threatened to end free speech, not in any way. Operative word here: NOT.

Part the fifth: Obama is not capping Wall Street Executive's salaries. He is placing rules on the giving of YOUR money to "distressed" companies. There are limits on what your mother can make if she's going to receive medicare. Unreasonable?

Mark said...

Well, it's easy to see some people can't see what is happening. Jim, after Obama takes over as "President for life" and squelches all free speech in the interest of "the collective", you remember the day, when you placed your faith in this obvious Marxist. Then, when you see what your blind devotion hath wrought, it will be too late.

I suspect the people who cried out the loudest for Obama's idea of "change" will be the most disappointed.

Trader Rick said...

We knew electing this guy would be real bad, but who could foresee just how catastrophic?

I don't understand how the dimocrats could be so blind to all this. It just doesn't make sense. Unless God, in His Infinite Wisdom, is blinding them from reason, just like he did to Pharaoh, for some purpose we can't perceive --perhaps a modern day "flood" of some sort, to erase all this vile crap and start anew...Hasten the fall of this civilization--maybe the end of the world really is near...
Just trying to cheer you up, Mark!

Jim said...

Your ODS makes BDS look like a case of acne. Can you spell d-e-l-u-s-i-o-n-a-l?

Two weeks and Obama has turned the US into Stalinist USSR. BRB, the KGB is knocking on my door.

Always On Watch said...

Mark,
I'm having the same thoughts as well as economic issues in my household.

What can we do? Not much, as things stand right now.

However, I believe that BHO will overstep so far as to wake up enough people to make a difference.

And I do see a few chinks in the armor of some of BHO's supporters (shamefully, in my own family). They're starting to wonder just what kind of man they voted into the Oval Office. Not enough to turn things around, but a start as a few months ago these same individuals wouldn't listen to a word of caution I uttered about BHO.

Of course, the many different costs which America will pay for this administration are going to be awful -- just awful. I'm not sure that we can yet even imagine all the costs which are going to come down on our heads.

Mark said...

Jim, I never said Obama's Marxist state is here yet. I said it's coming.

Don't be surprised if some KGB-like organization doesn't come knocking in the next 4 years, or after, if Obama succeeeds in becoming President for life. Once there, he has his lifetime to oppress the masses.

Jim said...

Always and Mark,

The ENORMOUS cost of the Bush Administration is in the books. Nearly $5 trillion in new national debt plus another trillion in war costs, breakdown in the rule of law, damaged world-wide reputation and an economy in shambles.

And after two weeks you're scared witless about what Obama might do?

Jim said...

Mark, you appear to be completely delusional.

Jim, I never said Obama's Marxist state is here yet. I said it's coming.

Don't be surprised if some KGB-like organization doesn't come knocking in the next 4 years, or after, if Obama succeeeds in becoming President for life. Once there, he has his lifetime to oppress the masses.


Based on what? How come it was OK for Bush to wire-tap America, but now you have some paranoid delusion about an Obama KGB based on NOTHING.

Are you watching Glen Beck or something?

Marshall Art said...

Jim,

First of all, there are indeed those who wish to stifle free speech, particularly conservative speech. I refer you to this AmericanDescent post, where I listed a few documented examples of this desire by your Dimocrat leaders. Since that time, I've heard a third ploy mentioned by a radio commentator while driving (so I can't relate any details).

Bush's contributions to this mess are due to mistakes in the last year and a half of his admin. Mistakes that are going to be repeated by your lord and savior and his chumps in Congress. But, Bush understood the value of tax cuts to the health of the economy and we sustained 52 months of growth during his admin. This happened despite a major attack on our soil, a couple of major hurricanes, a war and an aversion toward using his veto pen to stop bloated bills being put forth by Congress. If you think Barry isn't going to add to the debt as well as prolong the pain of the current recession, then you have no understanding of history as it regards economics. For that, go to my blog and read the link under "Been There, Done That" for a quick lesson. It is also helpful to remember that while the debt increased under Bush, so did the economy and as a percentage of that growing economy, the debt wasn't that bad, as bad as it was.

Breakdown in the rule of law? Sez you and other lib Bush-haters.

As to world opinion, shove it. Who cares what world opinion is when the choice is between doing what we must and satisfying the world's opinion? If you're so concerned about what Europeans think of us, move to Europe! Don't bore us with misguided concern for their favor. But as to world opinion, our trading partners are NOT happy with talk of protectionist "only buy American" drivel that is going on now from the direction of this admin. That kind of world opinion will hurt us more because those who crapped on us when they should have joined in more solidly in the war on terror, still do business with us and do not want to be iced out of that business.

Yeah, two weeks and already Obungle has made rational and reasonable people nervous. Libs will take a bit longer to understand why that is.

Lone Ranger said...

You are known by your friends. American Communists LOVE Obama. They think the battle to turn this country into a socialist utopia is almost won.

Jim said...

You know I used to listen to Hannity for as long as I could stomach him when I commuted home in the evenings. He's disappeared at that time to be replaced by somebody I'd heard of but never heard or seen before-Mark Levin.

I see Mark Levin in your blogroll.

That explains it all!

Joe said...

Mark: I have felt the very same frustration. It is hard to know where to start.

BO is not a socialist, as many of us thought, he is a super-socialist and very close to a dictator.

Just like the Cubans embraces Castro, Americans are about to embrace BO, because he promises what he cannot deliver in America, thus he must change America.

Terrifying.

Mark said...

Jim, I like Mark Levin but I rarely get to listen to him for more than a few minutes at a time.

In fact Levin often makes points I've already made. So does Glenn Beck.

You surely must have been visiting my blog long enough to know by now that my opinions are my own. I don't get them from radio or television. I don't even watch TV programs that aren't fiction.

I pride myself on formulating my own opinions. You compliment me by comparing me to Mark Levin and Glenn Beck.

Perhaps the idea that some people actually possess some common sense on their own is an idea that's foreign to you.

You obviously don't think for yourself. I've read all your platitudes before.

Mark said...

And Bush didn't wiretap America, idiot. He wiretapped Terrorists!

The fact that you're still alive to make stupid comments on blogs should be enough proof of that.

"Your ODS makes BDS look like a case of acne. Can you spell d-e-l-u-s-i-o-n-a-l?"

Yes, I can spell it. But YOU just defined it.

Ms.Green said...

Mark,

I also share in your frustration - and the state of the union would overwhelmingly depress me were it not for my overwhelming faith in my God. He has promised to supply my needs and I'm trusting Him to do that. As for the direction HO is taking us, I'm also going to go down kicking and screaming to the death if necessary. I'm clinging to my Bible and my guns and don't suggest anyone try to take them from me.

Meanwhile, my Senators and Congressmen are getting to know my name. I'm speaking out wherever I can by blogging, by conversing with friends family and strangers and pointing out the threats to freedom we are facing to anyone who will listen.

I believe many who voted for HO will wake up soon...but I hope it isn't too late by then.

Hafts Happenings said...

Mark you are NOT the delusional one. Jim, I will add you to my prayer list. And, if it were not for the fact that I know GOD is in control, I would have been scared witless, election night.

Mark said...

OK. One thing I left out of my post:

I should have said, "as long as they are going to give 1.2 trilliuon of our money away anyway, here is how I think they should do it", because that's what I meant.

I said it is a poorly thought out plan, and, in the comments, I said it is satire.

I am surprised, however, that I am seemingly the only one to have thought of this plan.
