The arrogance of petty dictators is the same everywhere.

Take a few lessons in Ornithology, the study of birds and you will see how well they apply to people: “Birds of a feather flock together.”and  “If it walks like a duck, talks like a duck, then it probably is a duck.”  Richard Cunningham Patterson Jr., United States ambassador to Guatemala during the Cold War in 1950, used a similar phrase when he accused the Jacobo Arbenz Guzmán government of being Communist. Patterson explained his reasoning as follows:

   "Suppose you see a bird walking around in a farm yard. This bird has no label that says 'duck'. But the bird certainly looks like a duck. Also, he goes to the pond and you notice that he swims like a duck. Then he opens his beak and quacks like a duck. Well, by this time you have probably reached the conclusion that the bird is a duck, whether he's wearing a label or not."

Apply the lessons we have learned. All dictators strut around with an air of self-importance. All dictators refer to themselves as if they are deities. All dictators are narcissists. All dictators consider themselves to be above the law. All dictators view their National Treasury as if it were their personal bank accounts. Barack Hussein Obama is all of the above.
Item: Federal Judge Roger Vinson ruled that the entire ObamaCare law must be thrown out and IMPLEMENTATION HALTED IMMEDIATELY because the mandate requiring Americans to buy health insurance is unconstitutional and unseverable from the rest of the legislation. THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION SAYS THEY WILL NOT COMPLY and will continue to implement ObamaCare REGARDLESS of the Federal courts! A senior Administration official told the Wall Street Journal that the entire plan is still fully operational, nothing has or will stop, and the Department of Health and Human Services will continue to carry out the full ObamaCare plan.

Item: In spite of the U.S. Supreme Court recently reaffirming the Second Amendment of the U. S. Constitution that gives citizens the right to own guns and the right to self-defense, a White House senior adviser said that President Obama is "going to address gun control" - soon. The Obama Administration hasn't revealed where or when this speech will happen. It will most likely occur when we're least expecting it. As the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms (CCRKBA) says:
Interestingly enough, Obama didn't mention guns even once in his State of the Union address. That's because he's saving his anti-gun agenda for a new speech. After the Tucson tragedy, the Liberals have issued a slew of anti-gun legislation.

Obama's adviser David Plouffe revealed to NBC that Obama will be addressing the need for changes in gun laws after the AZ shooting. Plouffe said, "It's a very important issue, and one I know there's going to be debate about on the Hill." The Liberals certainly aren't going to let this crisis go to waste. 

Liberal Anti-Second Amendment Legislation
  • Sen. John Kerry (D-MA) said he will be cosponsoring legislation that would ban the possession or sale of high-capacity magazines, and close the gun show loophole.
  •  Rep. Carolyn McCarthy (D-NY) proposed a bill to set the maximum size of a gun's magazine to 10 rounds.
  •  Rep. Peter King (R-NY) said it should be illegal to carry a firearm within 1,000 feet of a high-ranking government official.
  •  Sen. Frank Lautenberg (D-NJ) is pushing to get more intrusive background checks on gun purchasers and the denial of guns to people on the elusive terror watch list.
As you can see, the Liberals have a lot of anti-Constitutional legislation cooking. Obama will likely use his upcoming speech to attack the right to keep and bear arms and garner support for Progressive gun-ban voters. Obama will continue to attack your Second Amendment Rights between now and the 2012 election as a way to shore up support from his liberal anti-gun voter base.
Item: Even the faithful minions of petty dictators aspire to follow in the vaunted footsteps of their anointed leaders. It must be either the “Birds of a Feather” rule or that narcissism is an infectious disease. Bare Naked Islam  reports that Mike Riggs of The Daily Caller writes today:
“During an exclusive dinner hosted Monday by the Alfalfa Club, Obama adviser Valerie Jarret was seated at the head table along with several other big-name politicians and a handful of high-ranking military officials. As an officer sporting several stars walked past Jarrett, she signaled for his attention and said, “Garcon, I’d like another glass of wine.”

White House economic adviser Austan Goolsbee, who was seated next to Jarret, began “cracking up nervously,” our tipster said, but no one pointed out to Jarrett that the man sporting a chestful of medals was not her waiter.

“The guy dutifully went up and got her a glass of wine, and then came back and gave it to her and took a seat at the table,” our tipster said. “Everyone is in tuxedos and gowns at this thing, but the military people are in full dress uniform. (He should have poured it on her head) My sentiments exactly.

“There was no shortage of waiters either,” the tipster added.”
And on a lighter side, the final item about the extravagances the Obama's go to that make it seem the Treasury is their personal piggy bank. This came to me via an email this morning, just in time for Super Bowl Sunday. But first, for an apt comparison you may recall that Barack Hussein Obama took his wife Michelle on a well publicized date to New York City in May 2009. Read this detailed description of their trip and then read the joke that follows it. Here is how the web site Politico reported it:
Deputy Press Secretary Josh Earnest read a statement from Obama: "I am taking my wife to New York City because I promised her during the campaign that I would take her to a Broadway show after it was all finished."
Here are Dave Michaels' pool reports to the White House press corps:

"We touched down at JFK International Airport about 4:35 p.m. in the first plane of three.
"No traffic on West Street as NYPD had cleared the road. Some observers watched for Marine One from a pier about 100 yards north. I could see ten or more NYPD motor jocks, a bunch of cruisers and a rather large RV-style van, perhaps a mobile command center.
From an earlier report from Michaels as the presidential party took off from Washington: "Three presidential helicopters descended on Andrews Air Force Base about 3:42 p.m."

"Exactly five minutes later, President Obama and Michelle Obama stepped down from Marine One. They boarded a presidential Gulfstream 500 and we took off shortly before 4 p.m. en route to New York City, where the first couple is to have dinner and watch a play, 'Joe Turner's Come and Gone' at the Belasco Theater. The name of the production is courtesy of the New York Daily News.
"The first couple has left the Blue Hill restaurant in the West Village and headed north of the Belasco Theater, arriving at 7:55 p.m.."

"NYPD had blocked 6th Avenue for our motorcade to move north from the restaurant toward Midtown."

"A bit earlier, your pooler asked Josh Earnest, deputy press secretary, how much this trip costs taxpayers. He said other reporters had asked and he 'didn't anticipate being able to provide a cost estimate tonight.'"
Every Red Blooded American should jump in line to support the Green Bay Packers! The Packers defeated the Chicago Bears on Sunday afternoon thus earning them the opportunity to go to the Super Bowl. By doing so, they saved the Hard-Working, Red Blooded, Taxpaying Americans literally several hundred thousand dollars of tax money.

How you say? Simple.. we were told that if the Chicago Bears had won that President Obama (and probably his family) would be attending the Super Bowl to cheer on his hometown team.
Since the Bears lost...the President won't be attending. The money saved from not using Air Force One, the limousines, all the additional security, and let's not forget  Michelle Obama's entourage, is literally at least a million dollars!  Therefore every American should cheer on the Green Bay Packers at the Super Bowl to show them our gratitude.
Maybe you also forgot about Michelle Obama's lavish vacation trip to Spain last year with 40 of her "closest friends". CBS News web site headlined the story on August 5, 2010:
Michelle Obama Criticized as "Modern-day Marie Antoinette" Over Spain Vacation
CBS News White House correspondent Mark Knoller reports the C-32A (757) the First Lady used to fly to Spain - one of the planes that usually serves as Air Force Two, and sometimes Air Force One - operates at a Department of Defense reimbursement rate of $11,351 per hour.

So a 6.5 hour flight to Spain would run $73,781.50 - double for the round trip.
The NY Daily News ran the story written by Andrea Tantaros on the same day about the trip with added details on the number of people who accompanied Michelle Obama and the costs involved. 
"But while most of the country is pinching pennies and downsizing  summer sojourns - or forgoing them altogether - the Obamas don't seem to be heeding their own advice. While many of us are struggling, the First Lady is spending the next few days in a five-star hotel on the chic Costa del Sol in southern Spain with 40 of her "closest friends." According to CNN, the group is expected to occupy 60 to 70 rooms, more than a third of the lodgings at the 160-room resort. Not exactly what one would call cutting back in troubled times."

"Reports are calling the lodgings of  Obama's Spanish fiesta, the Hotel Villa Padierna in Marbella, "luxurious," "posh" and "a millionaires' playground." Estimated room rate per night? Up to a staggering $2,500. Method of transportation? Air Force Two."
Ah, Yes, the arrogance of it all. Perhaps we do owe the Green Bay Packers a debt of gratitude for beating the Chicago Bears.
