Light ‘Em If You Got ‘Em??

Back in the ‘Nam of the bad old days, you could obtain grass powerful enough to paralyze a zombie (or a Democrat, same thing) by the sandbag full or already rolled & packaged in cartons of what innocently appeared to be American cigarettes.  For 500 or so piastres (about 5 bucks, U.S.), you could stock up on enough of the “dinky-dow” weed to send the better part of a company of G.I.’s off on a jaunt to the land of the Purple Haze.  Maybe this was all well and good during those quiet times when Mr. Charles had no designs on you; but an expanded consciousness is really no place to be when the incoming starts.

Whether or not Barack Obama is still a subscriber to High Times magazine, I submit that a Marxist pot-head is someone whose cannabis-stained finger you do not want on the country’s nuclear trigger:

America’s Historic Cokehead President

[…] Obama would be historic as the first president ever to have his autobiography ghostwritten by someone who, according to an FBI informant, openly discussed the necessity of killing the ten percent of the U.S. population who could not be re-educated after the revolution.

…Historians of the future will be hard-pressed to explain how the most successful nation on Earth, with the most destructive weapons at its command, and with a political system that invests everything in the prudence and self-restraint of its leaders, could have elected as its president a man who is impervious to shame in talking about his long-term drug use, and who appears on comedy shows to make jokes about having been a better pot-smoker than another president.

While they’re at it, those scholars might take a crack at explaining how such a nation could have elected a president who has been described by a Ph.D. who knew him in his historic university days as a committed Marxist-Leninist; a president who explained his historic choice to work as a community organizer in Chicago as a search for “what the possibilities were for progressive politics in the black community”; a president whose academic records have remained historically sealed; a president who, as a state senator, publicly criticized the U.S. Constitution as ignoring “issues of redistribution of wealth, and … economic justice,” bemoaned the Warren Court’s lack of radicalism, and criticized the civil rights movement for neglecting “the activities on the ground that are able to put together the actual coalitions of power through which to bring about redistributive change”; and a president who has historically strolled blithely through all of these revelations without serious media questioning in the country that entrenched freedom of the press in the first entry of its Bill of Rights…

The prospect of Obama’s re-election is giving lots of people nightmares …

“My own prognosis, based upon that already told to me, and that which my own lifetime of experience would indicate, suggests if Barack Obama is to win re-election in 2012, certain economic doom for every man, woman, and child in America will soon follow…China has in place a plan for this event, and has taken measures to help ensure its reality…They are more than willing to undertake their own short term pain and even widespread chaos if necessary, so long as they emerge the dominant economic power of the world in the aftermath…The only question then remaining is if this is being done without President Obama’s knowledge and  understanding, or if he is in fact a willing agent of this global economic transformation that will leave the United States subservient to other nations and or some form of global governance.  My more recently formed understanding leads me to the inevitable fact of the latter…” — Wall Street Insider via the Ulsterman Report

… and with good reason:

Obama Works His Way Down the Wikipedia Definition of Totalitarianism

Funny how liberals try to tar conservatives, Tea Partiers and others who believe in the tenets of America’s founding as some sort of nascent fascists.

Because if you go down the official totalitarian checklist, it’s the progressive movement that is ticking off the requisite agenda items, one by one.

So-called progressives like Obama and his gang of radicals are dangerous people.  They believe in using the police power of the State to enforce conformity to their ideology.  Ultimately what they believe in is fear.  And there’s nothing progressive about that.

    Bush is America’s cokehead president (and the gay one too since he did not sue the bondage lady who outed him)

    • Bob Mack says:

      Here’s a news flash: Dubya hasn’t been president for almost 4 years.

      • lancethruster says:

        Yeah, there’s no other way to interpret that, is there? [sigh] And you goppers wonder why the Half-Hour News Hour (Reich Wing Daily Show wanna-be) was so painfully embarrassing.

        Presidents are still called “president” after leaving office (governors aren’t though people still call Sarah Palin, “governor” Palin).

        Thank you for your service though.

        • Bob Mack says:

          Thanks for your thanks for my service, as long ago & far away as it was. And, btw, I ain’t no GOP’er. I’m a Constitutionalist, and as such, was no fan of GWB’s. But the communist in office now is absolutely horrifying. Also, my site is no friggin’ debating society. Therefore, I doubt whether I’ll be approving any more of your comments, ‘less of course, you wanna talk baseball. Always welcome then.

    • righthook38 says:

      As usual, the discussion goes back to Bush, in order to avoid discussing the real problem in the WH that’s staring us in the face. Pivot, pivot, pivot… When it comes time to vote, no one will be thinking about President Bush. Stop living in the past…

  2. samiam60 says:

    Ahahahaha, High Times Magazine. Your hilarious Bob.

    I did a piece awhile back titled: We someone please,please,please drug test this President.

    I guess I was on to something back then after all.

    Great post 😀

    I would encourage everyone to check out Freedombytheways Blog for an excellent insight into the new Drones that will soon plague us.

  3. Thinking back over the presidents in my life time I came the conslusion that we really suck at picking presidents.

    • Bob Mack says:

      And we’re not much better at picking Congressmen, JIM. Well, at least we haven’t elected Cheech or Chong. Yet.

      • lancethruster says:

        Tommy Chong would actually be a great political representative. See the doc “A/k/a Tommy Chong” about his federal prosecution. He knows firsthand how effed up the system is.

        As to your earlier reply —

        “Also, my site is no friggin’ debating society. Therefore, I doubt whether I’ll be approving any more of your comments, ‘less of course, you wanna talk baseball. Always welcome then.”

        — there’s nothing to debate considering the broad brush you use in your description of things. Recreational sports are cool whatever one enjoys, but I think the fixation on spectator sports is symptomatic of the various ills of society (see “Manufacturing Consent”).

        Didn’t mean to darken your blog’s doorstep with an un-Bob Mack thought.

        • Bob Mack says:

          I like ya, LANCE. Yer persistent. I like Tommy Chong too, but I don’t want a pothead for president. You can throw as many un-Bob like thoughts at me as ya like. O’ course, I get to decide whether or not to publish ’em.

        • lancethruster says:

          Maybe one of the best poster boys for pot use was the late Dr. Carl Sagan. There’s a “pothead” who had it going on. William F. Buckley went to the trouble to sail outside of the territorial limits to fire up his wacky tobacky.

          The “War on Drugs” is a misnomer as it is a war on us. Nothing makes law enforcement more of a joke than the selective enforcement as practiced in a way that does more harm than good (we’ve been through the whole prohibition approach before with similar unintended consequences such as the fostering of a large criminal class).

          For a supposed Constitutionalist, the freedom to spark a little herb seems a bit tame (but that’s just me and it’s been mentioned as to where the friggin’ debating society isn’t, so I’ll cast my pearls elsewhere if I must).

        • Bob Mack says:

          Well, well … something we can agree on. The only folks that ever profited from Prohibition (& I do mean profited) are gangsters & government.

        • lancethruster says:

          It might have been P.J. ‘Rourke who said “Government is the most successful form of banditry.”

          What I know for a fact that he did say that you might like is, “Giving money and power to government is like giving whiskey and car keys to teenage boys.”

        • Bob Mack says:

          Well, P.J. usually has some cogent thoughts. If you’re interested, you can peruse one of my old posts: Obama: Daydream Believer.

  4. PappyCrux says:

    Hey, lighten up on the prez. I heard he has PTSD from all the racism he experienced during his days in Nam.

    • Bob Mack says:

      Yeah, PAPPY, I hear he had a rough time on a run through the Mang Yang … oh, wait … my bad … we’re talking ’bout Obama, so it must’ve been the Ying Yang. Hey, I like ur avatar pix. I’m currently re-reading the complete works of Segar & Capp.

    Who could possbibly imagine that we would have this Zero in the WH just a few years ago. He is following his play book perfectly. Bob and weave, distract, attack, and just where are the GOP ads please? A few viral youtubes, but that seems to be about it here in my neck of the woods.

    • Bob Mack says:

      Bloggers like us oughta to be getting paid by the Romney campaign, BUNKER, ’cause so far they’re wasting their money using the so-called professionals. Those clowns hit about as hard as Richard Simmons.

      • lancethruster says:

        That kind of speaks for their own lack of professional talent, no? The team that you want in charge is unable to hire a team good enough to put them in charge.

        As far as getting paid, wingnut welfare is pretty plentiful in the echo chamber, but even then, the competition’s tough (too many people willing to spout Fixed News-style talking points).

        • Bob Mack says:

          There’s nothing “wingnut” about the U.S. Constitution. If more so-called “representatives” abided by it, and followed the legal procedure for amending it, we wouldn’t have the problems we’re cursed with today.

        • lancethruster says:

          The current Cassandra chorus sounding off about the danger to the Constitution were remarkably silent when GWB (who you’ve indicated you were not a fan of) was taking a dump all over it (“The Constitution is just a goddamned piece of paper! ~ GWB).

          The Romney-bot is just Bush 2.0 without the beer (same failed “brain trust” as his policy team largely).

          There’s plenty that’s left to be desired with Pres. Obama, but Romney’s team won’t utter the B-word (Bush the Lesser) because they’re the yutzes that got us into the mess we’re in in the first place even though Mittens would just go back to those same failed policies.

          That’s the very definition of insanity.

        • Bob Mack says:

          Romney may be a RINO, but he ain’t a Red. That’s the only thing I like about him so far. And there was plenty of bitchin’ among Constitutionalists about Dubya’s high-handedness. But I beg to differ about just who the parties are that got us into our current difficulties. Most of the financial problems started with the Community Redevelopment Act (enacted by Dems & signed into law by Mr. Peanut), and were exacerbated on the government’s side by Barney Frank et al. The excrement hit the fan when incompetent or paid-off federal regulators allowed financiers to bundle the bad loans into derivative packages that went sour. Of course, there’s still a lot that’s murky, i.e. who triggered the massive Wall Street sell-off that was apparently designed to crash the U.S. economy. I have my suspicions, but there’s not much hard evidence out there.

  7. I’ve maintained for a long time that Obama is a cokehead — or, maybe, a crackhead.

    The ego he evinces certainly could be caused by chronic cocaine use.

    • Bob Mack says:

      I’ve heard the rumor, AOW … but I don’t think the ego of the Big Red One needs any chemical stimulation. From Commentary:

      Many of President Obama’s fervent devotees are young enough not to have much memory of the political world before the arrival of The One. Coincidentally, Obama himself feels the same way—and the White House’s official website reflects that.

      The Heritage Foundation’s Rory Cooper tweeted that Obama had casually dropped his own name into Ronald Reagan’s official biography on, claiming credit for taking up the mantle of Reagan’s tax reform advocacy with his “Buffett Rule” gimmick. My first thought was, he must be joking. But he wasn’t—it turns out Obama has added bullet points bragging about his own accomplishments to the biographical sketches of every single U.S. president since Calvin Coolidge (except, for some reason, Gerald Ford) …
