As if we needed more evidence that Barry Obama considers himself above the law.

He may want to remember that the Magna Carta figures heavily in US law. I know...dead white men and all that. But distilled, the Magna Carta stated that no one, not even the king (or in Barry's case, the Messiah), is above the law.

I don't believe for a second that Barry gives a damn about dead white men and Michelle doesn't even like live white people, so why should I expect him to obey the laws of the country he runs?

He started off with a blatant act of civil disobedience. "I won't give up my Blackberry". Ok, ok--but you're now the President of the United States. If you can't give up your Blackberry, DON'T RUN FOR PRESIDENT. There's this thing called the Presidential Records Act and every time he puts his fingers on that Blackberry he's violating the law. Yep--he's in violation of the very laws that he *swore* to uphold. He's an arrogant ass. Basically he's saying "eff" you, I'm president.

And now he's counteracted a law that he actually cosponsored that protects Inspectors General from preemptive firings (because inspectors general often investigate cases that could implicate high-level officials and appointees). The Inspector General of Americorps found that a big Obama supporter had misappropriated Americorps funds. The inspector received a cell phone call while he was driving that basically said "You have one hour to resign or we'll fire you". This is direct contravention of the law that Barry himself cosponsored. The law says that you must provide Congress 30 days notice and explain in writing why the individual is being fired.

Oh, and in four months Barry has quadrupled the US debt.

Congratulations America. You voted for change and we sure as hell got it.

Just a quick thought--I'll get into deeper ones later:

If Obama were in a penitentiary, he'd be the guy bent over the table while the rest of the inmates lined up behind him...

Ray Nance passed away Sunday, 19 APR 2009.

Who is Ray Nance?, you may ask. Ray Nance was the last surviving member of a group which became known as the "Bedford Boys".

Bedford is a small town in Virginia. On 6 JUN 1944 the town lost a significant portion of its young male population, literally in a matter of minutes.

The Bedford Boys were a group of childhood friends who signed up in the 29th Infantry Division (National Guard). When Uncle Sam informed them that they had been activated to go to the war in Europe not one of them ran to Canada, faked a disease, shot himself in the foot...They put their chins out and did what they knew was their duty to their country.

Say what you want about National Guard, but the 29th Division waded ashore on Normandy and straight into a meat grinder.

In less than an hour 19 young men from a small town were killed. Within 12 hours, two more died.

They lost 22 men out of 30. It was the highest percentage loss of any town in America that day.

It's said that the Western Union messenger spent an entire day in Bedford delivering telegrams.

Ray Nance was the last of one of the finest groups of young men to walk the planet.
