Obama to quivering masses with tingly legs:
THE WORLD WANTS YOU TO EAT LESS YOU FAT FUCKS.
Enthralled, tingly crowd to Obama:
WE LIVE FOR THE SACRIFICES YOU DIRECT, GREAT LEADER!
Okay, fine so I paraphrased it. But that’s what he said, basically. And how the crowd responded to Obama (Demagogue – IL).
“We can’t drive our SUVs and eat as much as we want and keep our homes on 72 degrees at all times … and then just expect that other countries are going to say OK,” Obama said.
He just told his core supporters that they’re fat dumb and happy, and that he’s going to do something about the fat and happy, and they cheered for him. The Federal power to control your diet and house temperature comes straight from the Grapefruit Diet Clause of the Constitution, which is in the 53rd Amendment, which also establishes the Right to Free Health Care and its companion piece (and some would say necessary precursor), the Right to Consequence-Free Sex.
It tells you something about the Obama supporters that he just promised to make them cold and hungry in order to win the approval of some vaporous guy known as “world opinion,” and they’re still orgasmic over the him, perhaps even moreso.
I suspect something in the U.S. has fundamentally changed for the worse. In an earlier day any presidential candidate promising to make the electorate suffer on behalf of the mystical national opinion of Germany, Japan, Guyana, Algeria and Indonesia (or whomever) would have been tarred, feathered, and run out of town on a rail. On the other hand, I’m sure some leftist legal scholars can be found to point out that he’s just being a textualist, interpreting “and a decent respect to the opinions of Mankind” as “requiring the express approval of Zimbabwe and Iran, among others.”
Don’t say you haven’t been warned.
