If only, if only, if only…

Stalin knew.

They must calculate that it’s better for Obama to be considered unaware to the point of negligence than to say he was aware of the debacle and let it go ahead anyway. I suppose they think that their rank and file will excuse it because it shows how lofty Obama is, how elevated above the common and petty concerns of lesser mortals.

[NOTE: Those of you who don’t understand the “if only Stalin knew” reference, please see this.]

    He is gone, but his shadow still stands over all of us. It still dictates to us and we, very often, obey.
    Lana Peters (Svetlana Alliluevya) died November 22, 2011, Wisconsin…

    please leave “rank and rile” alone…

    Freudian slip, no doubt :-).

    Will fix.

    The same was common in the Third Reich. “If only the Fuehrer knew…”

  5. Ymarsakar Says:

    I once was talking with some missionaries and I often thought “I will believe in God when the legions of angels come down to Earth and kill those evil freaks of nature”.

    I have yet to see the legions of dead piled up like corkwood to the moon, so I don’t yet declare my belief in Revealed Truth.

    The question of the existence of higher power entities, is a different matter.

    Its funny, but because they use NEOlogisms whose common meaning people assume, they got you guys all curled up in bunches… 🙂

    thanks for leaving rank and rile alone 🙁

    Rank = Military term for a line of soldiers
    Rile = make (someone) annoyed or irritated.

    So really, it was more apropos when in error…

  7. Artfldgr Says:

    Ymarsakar, if you knew more, you would not think so.

    ie. none of us is clean, so your basically saying when all mankind is killed by god by some means, then you will believe…

    or are you clean enough to avoid being on that pile?

    there was this guy that stood in front of a bunch of men wanting to stone some woman for infidelity or some sort… for some odd reason we remember that…

    Obama. Voting “Present” throughout his presidency. Because to make a decision would mean accountability.

    Here’s the thing, though: none of his people are ever held accountable, either. I think the only people who have left under some sort of cloud of shame were Van Jones (for his past opinions) and Lisa Jackson (for her FOIA-skirting email account, not that others aren’t doing it). In a sane world, at minimum, Holder, Napolitano, Sebelius, and the lying head of the NSA would have resigned/left “to spend time with their family.”

    Actually, I think what happened is that Ymar posted his comment about missionaries on the wrong thread. From its content, I believe he actually meant to post it on another thread in response to this comment from another commenter.

    I could be wrong, but that’s what makes sense to me.

  10. Yancey Ward Says:

    When told of the website problems on October 3rd, Obama reportedly asked “What is a website?”

    Actually, he asked, “What is a problem?”

    I started laughing until I realized these are actual responses from the man who has 0% situational awareness and 110% ego.

    The pregnant stunt-mother is parsed above. ^^^^^^^

    The entire event was staged, no doubt.

    Three babes, the President and one man were all in on the stunt.

    What a manipulative bastard.

  15. Ymarsakar Says:

    That’s not what the missionaries were talking about. It sounds like you have no idea what the missionaries are talking about these days.

  16. Ymarsakar Says:

    Neo, ideas pop up as I read the posts and comments, so it just so happened to occur while I was at this page. Not necessarily connected to a single comment or person.

    After it happens, I no longer remember the process by which it occurred, so it’s not possible to trace back the backups either.

    It’s always possible that the last 20 comments or so combined with a unique assortment of Neo posts, ended up with an imagined idea that came later. I tend to keep a large passive reserve to put things in for analysis and it just outputs products every once in awhile.

  17. Ymarsakar Says:

    blert, I don’t know what Stalin would have done if he knew, but I know that in that video, the two people on the side were “priming” the girl in the back.

    Very clear by their body language.

    Any interrogator, amateur or pro, will be able to see it. They, unless extremely well trained, won’t be able to hide it when the camera is straight on like that.

    Didn’t need a close up or review. First time seeing that video, first impression on the first pass.

    Let’s see if things will change on the second pass.

    On the second pass, it doesn’t look like the guy on the right was aware of what would happen. He reacted as I expected he should when surprised. But that could be either good training or good focusing on Obama’s que.

    One illness, and without me, you will fall. So sayeth the Regime.

    your right yamarsker i dont know what the current set of non christian christian missionaries say today..

    i was referring to jesus christ…
    you know.. the guy that they are supposed to refer to

  19. Ymarsakar Says:

    These missionaries weren’t dropped in front of my house by Jesus Christ. Since when did you hear from Christ anyways?

About Me

Previously a lifelong Democrat, born in New York and living in New England, surrounded by liberals on all sides, I've found myself slowly but surely leaving the fold and becoming that dread thing: a neocon.
