Current Events & Hot Topics Current Events & Hot Topics

Best FB status I have read in a while...........mentions the President and Ted Nugent.

Posted by   + Show Post

I asked if I could share this status within the group.  He was kind enough to say he did not mind at all.

I may very well use it as my own status if things continue from a few people on my page.

I absolutely agree with him and could not have said it better myself.

Oh, and he voted third party.  

'Like' if you agree.  lol


Quote:

Until tonight I had never un-friended someone. But when someone posts a picture of Adolf Hitler with small children, and the headline comparing him to Barack Obama... I think I'd rather not bother being cyber pals. While I'm on this topic, I don't really care what your politics are. Believe what you want. But, to those folks out there that carry so much hatred for the current president of the united states that you feel the need to compare him to Adolf Hitler, please take a minute to educate yourself. You might want to at least pick your poison. On any given week I see these people calling him a socialist, a dictator, a muslim, an america hater, etc etc. And now I'm hearing more and more that he is coming to take all your guns away. Basically the Ted Nugent school of thinking. Wait, I just said Ted Nugent, school, and thinking, in the same sentence. Sorry. Maybe I can help you to calm down...or at least take your finger off the semi-automatic trigger for a second and take a load off...or at least unload. We have just finished four years with this president, and you are still here, the sky has not fallen. The government hasn't come to take your arsenal away. In a few years when he is done being president things will pretty much be like they are now. Not good, not bad. There are 300 million guns in this country. Those guns..your guns, will probably never go away. And if you absolutely have to compare Obama to Adolf Hitler, do me a favor and un-friend me please. You clearly know very little about history or U.S. politics. Ok, back to cute kittens and endless memes.

You do know that the red states that vote Republican  get more federal money than those who vote Democratic.  

That really messes up your argument.  Check the facts on the Internet.

I'm not all that impressed by his words. However I'd much rather read a status update like that then a lot of the BS I read in my newsfeed.

 I don't think Obama has any plans to round up entire races of folks, starve them to death and/or gas them to death. He is an un-American tyrant, but I don't think he has any Holocaust aspirations.

Fortunately I don't have friends who take the sort of Olympic stretch necessary to connect un-American tyrant with one of the biggest mass-murdering racists of all time.

I have a lot more than "pet names," and have proven as such. All you've proven is that you're incapable of handling true facts and not the biased bullshit you scout for on the internet. The fact that you even think that Obama I a socialist tells me that you have NO IDEA what you're talking about. It's funny that you think that you do.

Practice what you preach. I'm not dictating anything. You want people to live the way you see fit; not me. It's funny how you spout off so much BS all without substantiating a single claim of yours.

You're so ignorant that it's not even funny. It's sad that you think that you've found unbiased news to base your lies off of. Pathetic.

Grow up. So much immaturity coming from you post. Who says ponypoo? Get over yourself. The world doesn't revolve around you, and most people agree with my stance. You don't need a gun, and it's sad that you've deluded yourself into thinking that.


Quoting Farmlady09:

 If the best you've got is pet names, you lose. I read the news that is available worldwide ~ and I blow off most of what the msm pours into little cups here in the states. I want news, not biased opinion. True journalism is all but dead in the US.


O's voting record is public record, and when he was actually present AND voted, his record sucked. Your 'truth' is based on 'your' opinion of what is best for the US. Well, I want something better than yet another monument to socialist failure, but I don't label my opinion as 'truth'. That's your first mistake, and it colors all the rest in your line of thinking.


Give up your rights if you want to. Better yet, get your happy butt to a country that embraces your line of how things should be ... or expect a fight that I doubt you are up to as far as changing this one (particularly since those who agree with you don't own their own guns and don't want to ... and are mostly afraid of them). I'm a lot more like the settlers who initially built a country out of woods, who weren't afraid of actual hard work, and who WERE willing to fight for what they felt was right. I don't earn my living sitting on my butt in a cubicle and living in a city that is nothing more than an unsustainable rat warren populated by grumpy humans who 'need' others to provide them with food, power, necessities, and protection. I also don't need a government nanny to tell me what I may/may not do, what is right/wrong, or when I should do things. You're welcome to your life and your artificial world ~ but you are not welcome to dictate what my world and/or my life is.


You did get one thing right ~ you aren't going to be able to talk enough ponypoo to change my mind. I have read the EO and they are a long list of mostly crap. He could have actually done some good if he had addressed the real problem ~ but his goal has nothing to do with fixing the problem. His goal is gun control, and as far as I'm concerned, he needs to stuff that where the sun doesn't shine (and I'd tell him that to his face and smile while I said it).




Quoting AdellesMom:

Honey, he's said these things himself. You need to pay better attention to the news, and stop parading around on the anti-Obama train. Lmao...he definitely isn't the "suckiest" POTUS in our history.

He doesn't. It's funny how your opinion is far from the truth, yet he's the liar.

There's no point in having a conversation with someone that's throwing a temper tantrum. Get over yourself. You obviously haven't read the EO. You're too ignorant for your own good.



Quoting Farmlady09:


So ~ I'm supposed to take 'your' word that you know what O's intentions are as a good enough reason to scrap part of the Constitution? I'm supposed to take 'your' word that you know the inner workings of O's brain, and are privy (somehow) to his thoughts?



The fact that I don't like where O is taking this country has nothing to do with 'knowing' him. What I do know is his track record, his voting record, and his own (from his lips, not 'your' fingertips) spoken goals and plans. I disagree with them almost in their entirety. Yes, he is the potus, but it is my opinion that he is the absolute suckiest one in the entire history of the United States. Whether you like my opinion or not is a moot point.



I won't get over it. I won't do as he commands. I won't lift a finger to help him screw up this country more. I don't have to ~ and you should deal with that and accept that there are a lot of people ~ roughly half the population~ that think the same to varying degrees. The man consistently makes demands, lies, hasn't got a clue how to lead, leaves our military members and families hanging out in the wind, pouts like a 2 year old when far wiser people tell him 'no', and acts as though being potus gives him some sort of right to make proclamations and decrees rather than work with congress and follow the laws laid out by the Constitution.



Now he seeks to erase parts of it for reasons that make no sense, and that will NOT result in anything OTHER than gun control. What he has proposed will not do ANYTHING to stop an angry or mentally ill person from harming others ~ and he has not proposed anything that will (such as cranking up mental health care, making insurance companies provide the necessary coverage, etc.). So, I respectfully decline to do squat to help him take away guns from law-abiding people, and I will continue to tell those in favor of gun control that they need to educate themselves or expect those who know better to tell them they lack education.



 



Quoting AdellesMom:

For one, Obama does NOT want to take your guns away. Secondly, the reasons Hitler used PROHIBITION (NOT control there's a HUGE difference) was to leave the citizens unarmed so they couldn't defend themselves against the atrocities he committed against mankind. Hitler is responsible for approximately 11 MILLION deaths. There's NO COMPARISON.

Only someone with the anti-Obama rhetoric shoved so far up their arse would think that such a comparison is okay. It's not. It's unintelligent to make that kind of comparison, and it only proves that people that make that comparison need to get a quick refresher on history.

Many people are awake. It can be argued that you're the one that needs to wake up, and out the anti-Obama jargon away. I have never seen so much hate, bigotry, and outright lies directed at one single person. It's a shame that people can hate someone they don't know so much that they allow logic, reasoning, and common sense to be thrown out of the window because of their own personal stances. What lies? Just because you find something on the internet that says that Obama is a liar doesn't mean that that information you found is true.

Obama is POTUS, and his Inauguration is this weekend. Get over it.




Quoting Farmlady09:



So what's your friend's problem with a sickening truth? It is sickening, and it IS true. Hitler used children as an excuse for gun control. Obama is doing the same. Both men stood in a cluster of children (which is what the press has put out that Obama plans to do) to announce their new gun control plans.




If 'you' don't like this, stop taking it out on the people who are capable of noting the similarities and take your issues up with Obama. Blaming those who don't like his policies instead of him is ridiculous.




You can tell your friend I said this ~ or not. I have one family on my facebook page that have been Obama fans all along. Good people, good friends ... but I did block their feed for a while because I never bought into the man's lies and I detest his arrogance. The past two weeks their thinking about him has shown a change, and it's directly linked to his own words about guns, gun control, and 'who' is actually being controlled. They understand that no criminal will obey a single one of these new laws ~ and are now stating openly that they have no intention of obeying them either.




It's just one family, but it's a start. A lot more people need to wake up, although now that he isn't concerned about reelection it may be that they wake up from a nightmare and find that reality is far worse.

I heard Bush referred to as Hitler many times. I've seen Obama called the same. Nothing new. I think in both cases it was inappropriate. Love them, hate them, but neither one of these men are fascist dictators hell bent on exterminating entire races of people. I don't know this guy but I wonder if he would have posted the same or similar status if Bush were still President. I'd like to think he would have. I wonder if this status would have got all the attention it has. My point is, it was wrong then and it's still wrong now. I will always respect the office of the president of the united states, even if it's being held by someone I didn't vote for. Period.

No one is being belligerent towards you. You don't want gun control? You want anyone to be able to own a gun, including the mentally unstable? Your stance is arguably immoral, and maybe even arguably unethical. In some form or fashion, almost everyone wants some form of gun control. There's someone somewhere that you think shouldn't be able to own a gun. I won't believe you if you say otherwise.

What you don't want is prohibition; there's a HUGE difference between control and prohibition

I know that you don't like Obama, and I don't care.

I'm not trying to make you sit up or go away. You just need to get over yourself. You seem to be throwing a tantrum. Grow up.
