    LOL!!!

    "The Obama administration, siding with the Bush White House, contended Friday that detainees in Afghanistan have no constitutional rights."

    "The hope we all had in President Obama to lead us on a different path has not turned out as we'd hoped," said Tina Monshipour Foster, a human rights attorney representing a detainee at the Bagram Airfield. "We all expected better."

    LOL at libs who don't know how the world works!!! As if your vote meant a damn thing!!

    LOL!!!

    Gee, and here I thought human rights would have been the primary concern of any democratic country.

    Anon, I think you can guess what his supporters will say.

    I'll give you an example about the detainees.

    "We'll Obama knows what he's talking about. It's OK secretly he's going to close the prison camp.

    Honest question: And then what?

    We'll I don't know. Maybe send them home or imprison them somewhere else."

    You know I made a comment earlier that he wasn't going to do anything about this. All the Obamatrons went crazy and called me out on it. Well now they can eat it.

    Here is a response to the one I posted,

    "Response: Well Obama didn't do it himself.

    Honest question: Weren't you guys the ones who called out every Bush cabinet member or proxy who did anything bad out as being Bush' fault?

    Response: Uhm, yeah but Bush is evil. Obama can't be blamed. He's only been in office for so long."

    The only been in office argument go old the minute he got in there and by the first couple of weeks broke every promise he ever made. I swear it has to be a record.

    All I have to say is at least George Bush started a war with the pretext of humanitarian concern. This administration doesn't even give a rat's ass about it.

    I guess it was Hope and Change we can believe in. I believed this was going to happen. Maybe he was just talking to me…

    "Same old politics" was the slogan against McCain. Then he hires LITERALLY the same old politics people to be in his cabinet.

    "If I weren't to hire people who made mistakes then there would be no one left" That's paraphrasing what he said in a press conference. Well I guess hiring people who evade taxes to do taxes is a good idea. They know how to fool the system. Maybe we should hire Somali pirates for our trafficking division in the Department of State. Or maybe ruthless murdering drug dealers for the ATF.

    I mean come on they made some mistakes. But they are the best people for the job according to me. I search Craigslist and that's all I found… You know?

    McCain was someone who served his country and didn't give up his American basic American principles. I think we seriously made a wrong turn. It's starting to smell like fascism. At least FISA was done under a pretense of safety, and maybe it was. This administration will just tell you it doesn't give a crap.

  3. Orville, you can say "I told you so" but you're still in the same sinking boat, so you can suck on your "I told you so" as hard as you want, it'll just lose it's flavor that much quicker.

    Ted, there is actually some realistic merit to your argument, other than the satire of it. That is, national image is improved through the loss of imperialistic power. The more the United States as a nation is no longer seen as a bully to the world, the more we become like one of those European former-empires and our citizens are treated with graciousness, and our patriotism seen as quaint and charming rather than ugly and fascist.

    Does anyone else find it ironic that Obama models Lincoln so much, and just a few short years after Lincoln's years in office this country faced it's first Great Depression (1870s), followed by the gilded age of robber barons?

  4. Clinton in Indonesia made me lul. Talk about HOPE and CHANGE…we aren't even subtle in that ever-so-fucked corner of the world. Applicants for position of 'president' unwilling to cut heads off need not apply. A new security regime for a new era. Pray they don't find oil under your island. Between Hillary's Asia jaunt and Barack's Afghan adventures, is there anyone out there who thinks foreign policy is changing even one iota?

  5. Platinum,

    Frankly I think it's gotten worse.

    Marion,

    See you don't surprise me one tiny bit. Previously you were commenting about how I was a right wing partisan murderer because I questioned the reasoning behind prosecuting Bush.

    I think you honestly either don't remember or have problems coming to terms and facing this administration. I still think it is all illegal, but now you are saying that taking a break is OK. That's exactly what a tyrant needs!

  6. Indonesia was the first step in the new corporate imperialism that started in the 1960s and cost the United States its industrial base. It's phenomenal how much the US government acts in direct violation of its constitution and so completely against the interests of its own citizens.

  7. I give this comic a 10 out of 10! Very true.

    Sure it's human nature to kick back a little, as a prior commenter pointed out, but there's an awful lot of things that have needed doing for decades, which aren't getting done. Comprehensive health care reform seems to be off the table already, green energy is now taking a backseat to sticking a finger into the hopelessly cracked dike of the Wall Street bad-debt economy. I thought the electorate voted in the "hope" of getting somebody who would get those overdue changes done.

    Of course it's early in Obama's presidency, he may well take a stab at reducing militarism, green energy and so forth… but the point of the comic is that his 'liberal' supporters who promised during the election that Obama was the one to get this stuff done, are now saying "kick back, don't worry, it's all good" by the scores and hundreds. Meanwhile our economy spins inexorably down the drain.

    Dorme bene, America, we'll wake up 3.85 years from now and suddenly realize we've become a third-world country who can't afford new challenges or bold social leadership anymore. Maybe that's a good thing if it prevents us from going down the other track so often taken by dying empires: fascism.

  8. Santiago, I agree with you that we trample it, but it's an 18th Century document that is woefully inadequate for our society now, and we need to modernize. The United States has the oldest working constitution, why are we so afraid to redo things? Why tie ourselves so much to 18th Century political philosophy?

    One reason is because the system is so broke nobody trusts anyone currently to not completely hose us up even further. I think it's archaic, but if we're going to commit to it, we might as well follow it.

  9. Aggie Dude,

    See I disagree completely. If we had followed the Constitution we wouldn't be here in the first place.

    It was the lack of following it that has led us here, the revisionism. Heck revisionism is responsible for the civil war.

  10. There's no state religion in the U.S., so Americans worship the Constitution instead. They literally call it "sacred" and venerate the President like some kind of fucking god-king.
