arma virumque cano (et alia)
So where do the "lies, innuendo, paranoia and treason" (especially that last) come in?
The lies, innuendo and paranoia have to do with the bizarre idea that Obama wants to harm America and weaken its military. The Treason is in publicly attacking the President with lies and innuendo that give aid and comfort to our enemies.
The Treason is in publicly attacking the President with lies and innuendo that give aid and comfort to our enemies.So . . . the capital "T" in "Treason"--is that your (sorta) subtle way of emphasizing that treason is a capital crime? Do you want his death, Mikeb? Killed, for saying mean things about some politician?
I'm not the one who calls for people's death when I don't like what they say. That's your thing. Nevertheless, I call this kind of over-the-top Obama hate, treason (with a small "t" except in the title of the post where every word is capitalized).
Mike,Sure, the emphasis in changing to a garrison force and the pushing out of veterans in favor of new politically correct recruits could just be political correctness run amok. Doesn't change the fact that this is a massive transformation and a bad one for the country.As for "treason", go ahead and push that one. Try and get a treason conviction for criticism of the president that you disagree with. See how the American people respond to that.
"I'm not the one who calls for people's death when I don't like what they say."Sorry, Mike, but you don't get to cop out like that. You keep accusing people of a capital crime. Even if your death penalty stance extends to treason, calling their actions treason still implies you'd want them locked away for life. And all because they opposed a politician you sort of like.
SJ, I'm not talking about the legal crime called Treason. I'm talking about something else, something all you Obama haters do. Fox News is the best at it, but Whittle is right up there. It's immoral and hypocritical to viciously attack the democratically elected president of our country all the while waving a flag and calling yourself a patriot.
Can we apply the same logic to the bush haters? Or the Clinton haters? The bush 42 haters? The Reagan haters? It appears, fro. Reading this blog thsy you seem to only apply the logic to opposition to obama.
The word treason denotes treason, not immorality and hypocrisy.As for your charge, did you feel the same way about the vicious attacks on Bush, the "Chimpy" jokes, etc.? Were the people engaging in those immoral hypocrites? Or were they spared that judgment because they didn't "wave flags and call themselves patriots?"As for the suggestion that it's immoral and hypocritical to viciously attack and criticize a democratically elected president and call oneself a patriot at the same time: What a load of horse pucky. Patriotic love for one's country requires calling it and its leaders out when one sees them as going off course. The fact that you like the new direction and the leaders doesn't change that fact or make the opposition's internally consistent beliefs and actions suddenly hypocritical.
"It appears, fro. Reading this blog thsy you seem to only apply the logic to opposition to obama."Did you consider that Obama has been in office during the writing of this blog? Couldn't that explain why Obama hate is so often the topic of the day?
A response without an answer, would you have applied the same logic to the other presidents I mentioned? Would you have considered the bush as hitler, the bush as a monkey, the death to bush and bush effigies to be treason? They were pretty vicious and he was the democratically elected president of the country. I'm well aware of the blogs life corresponding with obamas time in office but the question remains valid.
I might very well have called those things treason too. But as I said, Obama has been in office during the entirety of my blogging and that's why he's so often the topic and those others are not.
Treason is the Republicans writing a letter to our enemy in the middle of negotiations.
http://m.washingtonexaminer.com/5-times-democrats-undermined-republican-presidents-with-foreign-governments/article/2561314 What about these examples jack? Or the presidents questionable trade for berghdal? Or Hanoi Jane from Vietnam? Do any of those qualify as treason? Or this example http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2015/01/26/obama-campaign-team-arrives-in-israel-to-defeat-netanyahu-in-march-elections/ do any of these qualify as treason or is it just anything that doesn't fit the Obama agenda?
You tell me MikeZ, are they treason? Seems you are the only one who can give an opinion of what is treason, or not. Your first mistake is to think I am an Obama supporter just because I think our Congress writing letters to our enemy in the middle of negotiations is treason. Enjoy your anti Obama rant, but you are talking to the wrong guy.
If republicans sending a letter counts as treason surely the rest of the examples should as well. It was never my intention to assume anything simply a comparison. As I have often read on this blog it appears that many of its readers will allow obama to get away with anything and republicans are the devil.
Or how about removing Hezbollah and Iran from the terrorist list? Does that count?
