Germany, 1933…

19 June 2010

Words fail me. This disturbs me – as I hope it disturbs you. (Give it time to load.)

Pretty scary, isn’t it? And not the first time this has happened. Remember the “Barack Obama mmm mmmm mmmmmmm” song some leftist “children’s books” author foisted upon some very young children at B. Bernice Young Elementary School in Burlington Township, NJ early in his presidency? (It has been removed from You-tube, or I’d link it here to remind you – its removal was likely because the videographer never obtained the parents’ permission permission to film it, let alone publish it on the internet. Ever notice, too, that leftists never believe they need permission, but heaven forbid a conservative behave similarly!)

Edit: Ha! I found it! uh, er “enjoy”…

Or what about his videotaped speech directed to all the school kids last September? Thank God my kids’ schools saw fit to opt out of that one.

Am I the only one terrified by this “president’s” actions? Where is the moral outrage over the abuses of office? Why aren’t we tearing down the media outlets, forcing them to do their job? Is it that we are all resigned to the nazi-like state that these incidents bode for our country? Are we afraid to speak up because we expect this jackass to achieve absolute power and send his minions in Acorn and the “health care army” to collect his detractors?

Or am I simply asleep, having a bad dream – perhaps induced by the delirium of a serious illness? I keep waiting to wake up from this nightmare, but I fear I’m not sleeping. I fear we’ve become a country of sheep. And Obama’s come to quietly lead us to slaughter…

Before they change it…

15 June 2010

Since Obama and his minions will likely go after it (he stated no less in an interview, didn’t he?) – to change it to something that is “more inclusive”, “less war-like”, with pink fuzzy bunnies and free handouts for all of our enemies, I’d just like you all to have a chance to read our ENTIRE national anthem as written by Francis Scott Key; not as rewritten or truncated by those who would have it otherwise:

Oh, say can you see by the dawn’s early light
What so proudly we hailed at the twilight’s last gleaming?
Whose broad stripes and bright stars thru the perilous fight,
O’er the ramparts we watched were so gallantly streaming?
And the rocket’s red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there.
Oh, say does that star-spangled banner yet wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave?

On the shore, dimly seen through the mists of the deep,
Where the foe’s haughty host in dread silence reposes,
What is that which the breeze, o’er the towering steep,
As it fitfully blows, half conceals, half discloses?
Now it catches the gleam of the morning’s first beam,
In full glory reflected now shines in the stream:
‘Tis the star-spangled banner! Oh long may it wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

And where is that band who so vauntingly swore
That the havoc of war and the battle’s confusion,
A home and a country should leave us no more!
Their blood has washed out their foul footsteps’ pollution.
No refuge could save the hireling and slave
From the terror of flight, or the gloom of the grave:
And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

Oh! thus be it ever, when freemen shall stand
Between their loved home and the war’s desolation!
Blest with victory and peace, may the heav’n rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation.
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: “In God is our trust.”
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave!
