"To announce that there must be no criticism of the president, or that we are to stand by the president, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." -- Theodore Roosevelt

Obama's House of Cards-- I Mean House of 2000+ Page Bills-- Comes Tumbling Down

Obama signs the health care "reform" bill and twelve states UPDATE: 14 states (so far) have immediately filed suits to block this big government travesty.

And not coincidentally, we have these poll results from CNN (h/t Michelle Malkin):

"For the first time, a CNN poll has found that a majority of Americans disapprove of President Obama's job performance.

"According to a CNN/Opinion Research Corporation poll released Monday, 51 percent of respondents disapprove of Obama's job performance and 46 percent approve of it.

"Obama's approval rating has dropped steadily each month since December, when it was 54 percent. His highest approval rating in a CNN poll was 76 percent in February 2009 shortly after he took office.

"The new poll was conducted before the House on Sunday narrowly approved the Obama administration's signature domestic policy proposal: health care reform.

"The measure, which Obama plans to sign on Tuesday, represents the biggest expansion of federal health care guarantees since Medicare and Medicaid were enacted more than four decades ago.

"In fact, health care was the policy area that drew the second highest negative rating, with 58 percent registering disapproval. The highest negative rating was 62 percent for his handling of the federal deficit."

Do you remember when Michelle Obama uttered this nonsense back during the campaign?

"Barack Obama will require you to work. He is going to demand that you shed your cynicism. That you put down your divisions. That you come out of your isolation, that you move out of your comfort zones. That you push yourselves to be better. And that you engage. Barack will never allow you to go back to your lives as usual, uninvolved, uninformed."

She was more correct then she could have ever known. Standing against Obama is uniting many Americans in ways we haven't seen since 9/11.

The bill was passed, Obama signed it, and now we all stand together against it and its fascist mandates. And I do not use the word "fascist" lightly. This law conforms to economic Fascism as defined here.

"Where socialism sought totalitarian control of a society’s economic processes through direct state operation of the means of production, fascism sought that control indirectly, through domination of nominally private owners. Where socialism nationalized property explicitly, fascism did so implicitly, by requiring owners to use their property in the 'national interest'—that is, as the autocratic authority conceived it. (Nevertheless, a few industries were operated by the state.) Where socialism abolished all market relations outright, fascism left the appearance of market relations while planning all economic activities. Where socialism abolished money and prices, fascism controlled the monetary system and set all prices and wages politically. In doing all this, fascism denatured the marketplace. Entrepreneurship was abolished. State ministries, rather than consumers, determined what was produced and under what conditions. [emphasis mine]"

Yep. Obama doesn't just hold his chin up during speeches like Mussolini, he's also using the Il Duce party's economic theories. Hope and change, huh?

  1. Great post, Yukio.

    "Barack will never allow you to go back to your lives as usual, uninvolved, uninformed."

    Yes, indeed. Obama provoked this American to read hundreds of pages of legislation, which was, before his inauguration, never on my to-do list. I even read legislation before the legislators voting on it got around to reading it. When my medical doctors handed me prescriptions, I gave them copies of articles on medical ethics written by Obama's health care advisors (that euthenized a few votes for Democrats).

    Personally, I'd like to tell Michelle exactly where she can relocate Obama's supposed authority to "allow" and "forbid" Americans to exercise their inalienable rights. But, since that's not my "usual" job, I'll leave that to the courts.
