What Obamunists Want of Their God
Normally it's good for politicians to listen to their constituents. But this is far from the case for Chairman O, whose supporters bubble over with idiotic ideas, as evidenced by the notions they expressed at Change.gov, a site that allowed the gibbering hordes of Obamatrons to provide their input.
Comments are closed now, and the results are in regarding the top requests from Obamaland:
7. Ban private health insurance.
6. Revoke the Bush tax cuts, plunging us farther into recession.
5. Permanently close facilities to incarcerate bloodthirsty terrorists who are trying to kill us.
4. Waste still more fortunes on light rail boondoggles.
3. Stop teaching abstinence and train children how to fornicate.
2. Become the "greenest" country in the world, despite the totalitarian measures this would require and the economic collapse it would cause.
1. End marijuana prohibition.
Bad as Obama might be, he's unlikely to be as awful as the unhinged cretins who elected him. My advice would be to give them No. 1; then they'll be too stoned to remember the rest of their demented demands.
On a tip from Todd D.

Van, you may be on to something there with giving them No. 1. Anybody who ever smoked pot knows that it renders you sitting blankly in front of the TV, then reallllly tired the next day. This would cut down on the wacky, angry, sometimes violent protests, and I doubt they could even find the wherewithal to write their legislators or messiah.

The Obamabots assembled in DC yesterday reminded me of that scene in the church in Beneath the Planet of the Apes.

Van Helsing, I read every single one of these "ideas," but the one that sticks out most to me was Legalize MILK, yes, milk.

I didn't understand the Legalize Milk one. Who knows? A few others:
Appoint Secretary of Peace in Department of Peace and Non-Violence. HAHAHAHA What would a typical day in the office be like? Stoned? Pure moonbattery.
Bridging the Empathy Gap: Yes We Can! Love and understanding, probably with terrorists. More pure moonbattery.
Mobilize mentors, tutors, and citizen teachers to help kids succeed. Watch the perverts come out of the woodwork for the opportunity.
And...one that I can actually believe in: Save Small Businesses from the CPSIA. How did that one get on there?

was that on the list?

Here's 10 things I'll do when you elect me president:
10. National School Voucher program
9. Amendment to Constitution: Marriage is a covenant between 1 man and 1 woman
8. Abortion illegal except in cases of rape and incest. All tax money currently going to Planned Parenthood goes to foundation for medical expenses and adoption services for women pregnant by rape and incest who do not abort their child.
7. Drill everywhere there is oil while investing in new energy technology. Make the most of both of what we have now and what we'll need in the future.
6. A playoff in college football. 8 teams, begins weekend after Thanksgiving weekend; 2 rounds leaves 2 teams, with championship game on New Year's night. All other bowl spots filled as usual, with no bowls after Jan. 1. This plank in the platform alone will win me California, Texas, Florida, Oklahoma, Alabama, Georgia, Louisiana, Ohio, Indiana, Pennsylvania, and Michigan.
5. National flat tax of 15-17%. No loopholes.
4. Close Guantanamo, and move all inmates to Leavenworth. Life in Gitmo is a vacation compared to a real federal prison.
3. Cut in federal college financial aid, accompanied by mandate that schools spend a certain percentage of their endowment on financial aid. The tuition arms race, with ever-increasing federal financial aid acting as enabler, has got to stop.
2. End Affirmative Action.
1. Increase defense budget while cutting entitlement programs. Our soldiers deserve the best training and equipment. Their protection of our country benefits everyone.

I never quite understood the bile and vitriol directed at private health insurance. If someone is willing to buy their own health insurance, or if one's employer is willing to offer group coverage that you have to pay for, why should you not be allowed to do so? Even if we had some sort of national health insurance (yuck), why not allow those with the means to buy more/better coverage if they choose to?
Yeah, yeah, inequality, social justice, it's not fair, blah blah blah. That's not to say that our present health care system is fantastic, but how does eliminating private insurance and entrusting the government with it an improvement? This is the same federal government that just handed over hundreds of billions of dollars to banks to "bail them out" and now admit that they have no idea how the money was spent. And if the government handles health care, too, how long do the leftists in this country think it will take for the thieves in Congress to redirect some or all of that money somewhere more politically profitable, as they have with the Social Security fund? A week? Two? If even that.
I also notice that "cut spending" wasn't on the moonbat's wish list - maybe because most of them expect to get something out of the deal? I mean, at least some of them pay taxes, right?

"Free single payer healthcare"
Now THERE'S an oxymoron!

Not so - frequent pot users develop resistance to many of the side effects and are able to function physically while stoned (plenty of people commit armed robberies etc. while high) - not to mention that adding THC to the already-fragile psyche of many moonbats can lead to severe psychosis (there is debate over this but AFAIK the most accepted view is that cannabis use can greatly exacerbate existing psychoses - I have witnessed this in more than one person I have known). There's also the "derealization" effect, where the mind is still active but the surrounding world is altered by the drug - that, coupled with the innate paranoia of weed, can develop a state of mind that is very susceptible to conspiracy theories and a feeling of "seeing a bigger picture," which to a less-than-stable mind can be extremely convincing that one is the subject of conspiracies by evil forces, oppression, etc.
In other words about 90% of typical moonbat behaviour is explained by them being really really stoned half the time.
Think about the demographics most associated with marijuana use - uber-leftist DU types, rappers and black people who follow the rap lifestyle, white kids who try to follow the rap lifestyle, metalheads, Rastafarians, "bogans" in Australia, etc...
All of them, without exception, formulate their worldview around vast conspiracies against themselves, and associate with "victim/rebel" identities like Palestinians, Cubans like che guevara/the castros; back in the 60s it was the communists in Asia whose side they were on. All of those groups - except for pasty-ass DUers - are also associated with above-average incidence of violent crime, conspiracy theorizing, claims of victimhood, etc.
It's not a coincidence that these people are the ones most associated with weed, or that weed is the drug most associated with these people.. Just saying.
(I was a fairly regular weed user back in the day and came from a background where its use was extremely common so I can vouch for these symptoms both first-hand and second hand. It's a fun drug that has some definite positives but overall pretty nasty stuff.)

You're correct about the paranoia, Mclaw. Good analysis. Personally, I don't think it's a fun drug at all, I couldn't stand the cotton mouth and the paranoia. I'd rather have a tall cool stiff one. :)
