I thought it was partially amusing to read the butchered history, but really scary that these people were so far from the truth and did not realize it.

I mean missing the American Revolution by two hundred years? Or claiming US troops masacred German troops twice .... once after being corrected previously. That is scary if people are this far off the mark.

NO "My Muslim Faith" Obama for me either!!
A couple true ones thrown in;
2010: Drug dealers invade America: “Mexican drug cartels have seized control of at least two American ranches inside the U.S. territory near Laredo, Texas.”—Kimberly Dvorak

2010: And form a beachhead in Arizona: “Our law-enforcement agencies have found bodies in the desert, either buried or just lying out there, that have been beheaded.”—Governor Jan Brewer

Actually, many ranches have been trespassed, robbed, and shot at, and there have been many bodies, from the invasion of up to a division per night, both from murder by their own or from the dessert. The border is a trashed out nightmare in places and others the National Forest was intentionally burned by them. Hundreds of over the border shots are fired every night (estimated at one time to be a thousand). To me, it is nothing to make fun about. It is an ongoing invasion of over 30 years that is ruining the America I knew.

Border Patrol Being Taught To Run, Hide & Throw Things, Not Shoot
Freedom Outpost ^ | June 26, 2012 | Tim Brown

"It appears that the Obama administration is not only getting in the face of the American people with their immigration policies, but they are also running a little private campaign of their own when it comes to the border patrol. Instead of the border patrol doing their job in an aggressive case in public, they are now being taught to run away and hide and only as a last resort are they to open fire. Wait! No! They can’t do that. They are supposed to become “aggressive” and “throw things.

You heard that right. Local 2544(USBP) posted a brief statement in regards to the new “training tactics” they are being taught. Welcome to the new world of Barack “The Golfer” Obama and Janet “Can I have another doughnut” Napolitano.

"In another nauseating series of “Virtual Learning Center” brainwashing courses that Border Patrol agents are forced to sit behind a computer for hours and endure, we are now taught in an “Active Shooter” course that if we encounter a shooter in a public place we are to “run away” and “hide”. If we are cornered by such a shooter we are to (only as a last resort) become “aggressive” and “throw things” at him or her. We are then advised to “call law enforcement” and wait for their arrival (presumably, while more innocent victims are slaughtered).""
snope this one;
http://www.youtube.com/watch_popup?v=tCAffMSWSzY#t=28
Obama admits he is a muslim. (and thus an enemy of the USA in many ways)
Then snope THESE:

The disease is rampant lawbreaking all the way up to the highest level...
(1)Obama Admin sued Florida for trying to clean up its voters rolls of illegal voters, including 53,000 dead people. (2)Involved with Acorn and other voter fraud.
In 2010 Colorado Senate race, won by 3,900 votes, of which , the Colorado Sec. of State found 5000 votes were made by illegal aliens.
(3)Defying Congress who would not pass the DREAM Act by doing it by Presidential Order, like a dictator.
(4)Used Executive Privilege to protect Holder in "Fast and Furious" scandal worse than Watergate, and very deadly.
(5)Aims to violate the 2nd Amend. by bringing the US under the UN Small Arms Treaty
(6)Sued AZ and other states for trying to enforce immigration laws, while (7)ignoring the breaking of Federal Immigration Laws by San Francisco and other "sanctuary" cities.
(8)Refused to build double layer fence on Mex border as required by law.
(9)Violated contract and bankruptcy law by forcing GM stockholders to take pennies on the dollar for shares.
(10)Gave $500 million to Solyndra which went bankrupt. (I remember reading of their executives getting huge amounts of money)
(11)Instructed DoJ to not enforce the federal Defense of Marriage Act by Congress. Again dictatorial tactics.
(12)Illegally bypassed the Senate confirmation process tp appoint 3 members of the Nat. Labor Relations Board.
(13)When signing 2011 fed. budget law declared he would not follow the section that ends funding for his many unconstitutional 'czars'. Violation of Oath, again.
(14)Lying about the cost of 'ObamaCare'. (15)Use of drones to spy on Americans. And(16) more lawlessness unseen and in greater quantity than anyone before}incl. Grant, Nixon, Clinton and Bush{.
Seems like such a nice guy, like a lot of crooks do. Con artist. Felon.
(from letter by Americans for Constitutional Government)

Yeah, about as scary as putting folks back in chains and arguing over who built what. If you think any of that is meant literally, you're not paying attention.

What would not be literal about claiming the US troops massacred German troops in WWII or that the first Constituiton banned slavery, for example? It is clearly ignornace being spread and seemingly accepted.

In the paper(Wednesday), a survey by the Center for Survey Research and Analysis at the University of Connecticut gave 81% of college seniors a D or an F on their knowledge of American History. I would say it is similar for knowledge of ecology, too.
These are the new teachers, politicians, and citizens, and supposedly the better part of humanity. It puts even more of a damper on hopes people will learn to act for the environment enough in time. I wish there was a smart pill or aerial spray of knowledge and caring for the environment, but there isn't.

It's all in the interpretation, isn't it? But I'll see your ignorance and raise you blatant stupidity. Have you heard the Howard Stern clip where he interviews Obama supporters? If you honestly think idiots like this deserve the right to vote, then you're as much a problem as they are. The problem with voting isn't fraud, it's not dead people, illegal aliens, or mikey mouse, it's the incompetency of registered voters.

How can there be an "interpretation" of historical fact that radically differs from said fact which is correct? Tha American troops cannot have massacred German troops if that never happened. The first Constitution cannot have outlawed slavery when is was specifically addressed in Article 1 Section 2.

Representatives and direct Taxes shall be apportioned among the several States which may be included within this Union, according to their respective Numbers, which shall be determined by adding to the whole Number of free Persons, including those bound to Service for a Term of Years, and excluding Indians not taxed, three fifths of all other Persons.

the "other persons" being slaves.

The leadership and national spokespeople differ significantly from the general population. The leadership and national spokespeople should be the best and brightest ......

My point is that it won't matter who is voted to power, as he or she continues to work for the same global capitalist system.

Thank goodness the commies have such a fine track record as well, eh. Rafy?

Once hard-line commies get in office, you certainly won't have to fret about voting anymore.
