I saw it last week, not a good movie at all.

If you want a doc, see Searching for Sugar Man,
I recommend that for anyone that is a music fan and has a heart

or the French language film. Well Digger's Daughter
I recommend that for French speakers or anyone with an i q over 100 that does not whine about reading sub-titles.

LOL, Cori.

Synopsis: Immersed in exotic locales across four continents, best selling author Dinesh D'Souza races against time to find answers to Obama's past and reveal where America will be in 2016.
...the hell, are we turning learning about Obama into an action movie or something?

Quote:
During this journey he discovers how Hope and Change became radically misunderstood, and identifies new flashpoints for hot wars in mankind's greatest struggle.
Uh-huh.

We have the book this is inspired by at work. Yep.

This is the game changing book revealing the blueprint for a second term that President Obama and his progressive backers don't want you to know.

Months of painstaking research into thousands of documents have enabled investigative journalists and New York Times bestselling authors Aaron Klein and Brenda J. Elliott to expose the secret template for Obama's next four years -- the one actually created by Obama's own top advisers and strategists.

Just as Obama concealed the true plans for his initial term behind rhetoric of ending partisan differences and cutting the Federal deficit, Obama's re-election theme of creating jobs conceals more than it reveals about his real agenda for a second term.

All the main areas of domestic policy are covered -- jobs, wages, health care, immigration overhaul, electoral "reform," national energy policy. Each of the plans exposed seek to permanently remake America into a government-dominated socialist state.
http://www.amazon.com/Fool-Me-Twice-...ce+aaron+klein

This book has been written by New York Times reporters.

There may be some truth to what they've written, and if it is, it doesn't sound so horrible. There are some people who seriously believe when he wins the election in November, Obama will declare himself dictator, outlaw Christianity, unleash a secret police guard and set up gulags to reform people. Crazy and insane as that sounds, it is true that some Americans believe this.

Regarding Pearl's comment at the end there-god, I'd love to know where people who think such things get their proof. At what point has Obama made it clear he wants to get rid of Christianity (would be especially interesting given that he himself IS a Christian, but, you know, whatever), for instance?

I'd love to know, but of course I know I won't get an answer, because there is none.

Sigh.

Seriously, can someone please tell me what the hell that phrase even MEANS anymore?

Looking at that book, yeah, all the stuff listed in there, if that's what Obama's plans are, it doesn't sound too scary to me, either. But hey, I'm the weirdo who's unknowingly supporting an evil socialist empire, apparently, so what do I know, right?

Did a bit more research on those two authors, Aaron Klein and Brenda J. Elliott. They've written many conspiracy theorist books on Obama, such as accusing him of secretly gathering his secret police. Klein also writes for WorldNetDaily, a radical conservative news site.

If you're asking how in the world did I come to know this, well, let's just say when I listen to the political beliefs of my family, I swear I was switched at birth or may be the milkman's kid.

It doesn't mean anything.

Bu people like to repeat it because it makes them feel smart and important.

LOL. I understand, I have relatives that buy into that stuff, too.

Good lord, that list just screams "Paranoid!". I truly can't imagine what it must be like to live your life thinking that everyone's out to get you and destroy the American (TM) way of life at every turn like that.

And speaking of America...

Quote:
The Manchurian President: Barack Obama's Ties to Communists, Socialists and Other Anti-American Extremists
If any conservatives on these boards need further explanation as to why we find that mindset a turnoff, I'd say the constant insinuations regarding who's "more American" than whom, who is a "true" American, certainly qualifies as a huge reason. I wasn't aware there was a proper checklist to demonstrate how American you were and prove your love for your country, but apparently it exists in some people's eyes.

Apparently so. I'd just like the people who say such things to try and explain what they think it means once, I guess.

It is early
But we are only two months out.
I expect Obama to win with about 300 e c votes.
The Senate is the question.

He hates cowboys and cowgirls too? Wow, that's enough..I'm done with him.



Hank Williams Jr. repeated his anti-Obama tirade at a concert in Texas on Sunday. Performing at the Stockyards Music Festival, the country singer went on an extended rant against the president.

"We’ve got a Muslim for a President who hates cowboys, hates cowgirls, hates fishing, hates farming, loves gays, and we hate him," Williams Jr. bellowed. As the Dallas Sun reported, the crowd responded with a loud cheer.

They should have had Chuck Norris speak at the convention

Chuck Norris and wife promise 1,000 years of darkness if Obama is reelected

Plaid shirted harbinger of doom I love that

Um...what ? That's a random grab bag of things and people if ever there was one.

(And oh, noes, he loves gays?!?! Oh, the horror! . Gee, yeah, it's such a mystery why some out there have problems with conservatives nowadays.)

I'm not sure which I find more troubling, Williams' idiotic comments or the crowd cheering them .

I suspect the crowd would have cheered even if he'd said "Y'all go on and fuck yourselves now, ya hear?"

True. Especially given that it's a concert and there was probably a lot of drinking going on on top of everything.

Certain family members of mine keep sending me conspiracy theory emails about Obama being a communist terrorist socialist with secret plans to destroy and bankrupt the United States. I started sending them responses with sources proving them wrong on all of their allegations and got called a liberal Obama worshipper. My response was that Obama was too conservative for me.

I really just... don't understand people. I respect different political beliefs, but I can't respect blind ignorance or the people that hang on everything Glenn Beck says as if he's the second coming of Christ. Just because I defend Obama against ridiculous conspiracy theories doesn't mean I like him. It just means I value the truth.

Agreed. What's that old saying, something about how you're entitled to your own opinions, but not your own facts?

I like how pointing out areas where someone is blatantly wrong about something related to Obama means that you're a "worshipper". Are things really that black and white (...no pun intended...) for some people?

I completely understand the frustration the both of you feel about family members not being well informed about Obama and the conspiracies surrounding him. It's not easy being in such a family during an intense election year.

Sometimes I wonder if it is best to just ignore them and block out their ignorant rants for the sake of your own peace of mind. Then again, I may be saying this because my family and I about to spend the weekend with my sister down in Charlotte for one of my nephew's 1st birthday. Because everyone in my immediate family is practically a radical conservatives (my other sister is more moderate, but even she's starting to believe the Obama conspiracies, for some odd reason), its going to be a really fun weekend. It's going to make me sick hearing all these anti-Obama and anti-liberal rants, especially since I can only be silent about them. If I were to speak up and point out how uninformed they are, I would be brutally shot down.

Sorry for this whiny post, but I really needed to get all this off my chest.
