Be The Tattletale

Go ahead. You know you can do it. Turn me in. Turn us ALL in. See what a great spot it will earn you in the new soviet pecking order of the future, comrade. Because they know if you will turn against your fellow man, there’s nothing left of your soul. They pwn you, period.

America is a dream fulfilled. Through the blood, sweat, toil, and determination of countless men and women over the generations, “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness” became a reality for whomever dared to dream it. My ancestors dreamed that dream. So did yours. Even so the ancestors of those who would destroy America from within; how proud are they of their progeny now?

“I fear all we have done is to awaken a sleeping giant and fill him with a terrible resolve.”

Admiral Yamamoto from Tora! Tora! Tora! could be talking about the American public, couldn’t he?

It’s telling when the Obama WH doesn’t even understand that we’re quoting his own words back to him and sundry/miscellaneous Congressfolks. Takes a little umph out of the message, doesn’t it?

Instead of explaining some sort of evolution in Obama’s thinking on these points, [Linda] Douglass attempts to propagandize by claiming that people who saw these clips didn’t hear Obama say exactly what he did. It’s the equivalent of a Jedi mind trick, only it’s the weak-minded trying to conduct the trick.

Liberty comes in many shapes and sizes, but it is always at the core of American values. And red-blooded Americans will fight for it. The lurkers of Congress are beginning to see that as they come home to their districts with their attitudes and flimsy talking-points.

This is what is looks like when people decide to take representative democracy seriously. You can expect the left (and their BFFs in the media) to continue to pooh-pooh these demonstrations because if the people win, their dreams for a utopia where they get to tell the rest of us ignorant yokels blows away. I, for one, will be overjoyed to see their dream deferred again.

Those who have read their dream of health-care rainbows and unicorns know it includes Soylent Green. Only the cruelest of regimes discard their citizens at the first sign of wear and tear.

Perhaps the love affair with empty rhetoric is waning – after all the hateful words that constantly rained down on the previous POTUS are now considered “mean-spirited and dangerous.”

But this is making a clear reference to a known fictional character called The Joker, and there is clearly the word “Socialism” beneath the portrait. This is political commentary; whoever came up with it is using a familiar visual image, and giving us an actual word which delivers a two-point message: he or she thinks the president is a joke, and a socialist.

This -until very recently- used to be called “free speech.” It is protected in this country, and thought very highly of. And protest or dissent, we have been told, is the very highest form of patriotism.

Any proper and dignified liberal was expected to know the lingo: BusHitlerChimpyMcLoser. Photoshops, cartoons, bumper stickers – all manner of denigration abounded. The hate-fueled mania for one man could work liberals into a frenzy. But wasn’t it Hillary herself who said in her own campaign, before it was bulldozed by the hypnotized zombie legion of HopeNChange community organizers:

“I am sick and tired of people who say that if you debate and you disagree with this administration, somehow you’re not patriotic, and we should stand up and say, ‘WE ARE AMERICANS AND WE HAVE A RIGHT TO DEBATE AND DISAGREE WITH ANY ADMINISTRATION!’”

Even The Joker is outraged that Obama would audaciously hijack his identity.

This is the moment our movement was built for.

For one month, the fight for health insurance reform leaves the backrooms of Washington, D.C., and returns to communities across America. Throughout August, members of Congress are back home, where the hands they shake and the voices they hear will not belong to lobbyists, but to people like you.

Home is where we’re strongest. We didn’t win last year’s election together at a committee hearing in D.C. We won it on the doorsteps and the phone lines, at the softball games and the town meetings, and in every part of this great country where people gather to talk about what matters most. And if you’re willing to step up once again, that’s exactly where we’re going to win this historic campaign for the guaranteed, affordable health insurance that every American deserves.

There are those who profit from the status quo, or see this debate as a political game, and they will stop at nothing to block reform. They are filling the airwaves and the internet with outrageous falsehoods to scare people into opposing change. And some people, not surprisingly, are getting pretty nervous. So we’ve got to get out there, fight lies with truth, and set the record straight.

That’s why Organizing for America is putting together thousands of events this month where you can reach out to neighbors, show your support, and make certain your members of Congress know that you’re counting on them to act.

But these canvasses, town halls, and gatherings only make a difference if you turn up to knock on doors, share your views, and show your support. So here’s what I need from you:

Can you commit to join at least one event in your community this month?

In politics, there’s a rule that says when you ask people to get involved, always tell them it’ll be easy. Well, let’s be honest here: Passing comprehensive health insurance reform will not be easy. Every President since Harry Truman has talked about it, and the most powerful and experienced lobbyists in Washington stand in the way.

But every day we don’t act, Americans watch their premiums rise three times faster than wages, small businesses and families are pushed towards bankruptcy, and 14,000 people lose their coverage entirely. The cost of inaction is simply too much for the people of this nation to bear.

So yes, fixing this crisis will not be easy. Our opponents will attack us every day for daring to try. It will require time, and hard work, and there will be days when we don’t know if we have anything more to give. But there comes a moment when we all have to choose between doing what’s easy, and doing what’s right.

This is one of those times. And moments like this are what this movement was built for. So, are you ready?

Please commit now to taking at least one action in your community this month to build support for health insurance reform:

Let’s seize this moment and win this historic victory for our economy, our health and our families.

Thank you,

President Barack Obama

UPDATE IV: Erick at RedState notes that the Constitutional Scholar and his office might be doing something… unlawful. Don’t Celestial Constitutional Scholars have to pass some kind of law exam? Maybe?

This will be a the first significant time the White House has ignored the Privacy Act and may open President Obama up to litigation.

This is another example of the Obama administration ignoring long time precedent when it is no longer convenient for them. And ignoring this precedent lets them collect data on and potentially harass individual American citizens.

UPDATE V: Sen. John Cornyn aurges Obama to shut down Snitch Central. Even Americans who were willing to give Obama the benefit of the doubt are growing suspicious. Rightly so.
