Quote of the Day

"(Obama) is going to try to hand over the sovereignty of the United States to the UN. Okay, what’s going to happen when that happens? I’m thinking worst case scenario here. Civil unrest, civil disobedience, civil war maybe. We’re not just talking a few riots here and demonstrations. We’re talking Lexington-Concord take up arms and get rid of the guy. Now what’s going to happen if we do that, if the public decides to do that? He’s going to send in U.N. troops — with the little blue beanies. I don’t want ‘em in Lubbock County. Okay. So I’m going to stand in front of their armored personnel carrier and say ‘you’re not coming in here’. “And the sheriff, I’ve already asked him, I said ‘you gonna back me’ he said, ‘yeah, I’ll back you.’"

-- Judge Tom Head of Lubbock, Texas on the coming UN takeover of the United States, facilitated, of course, by President Obama

I'm not sure what's more entertaining, the thoroughly batshit delusion that there are going to be UN troops and vehicles rolling up Main Street in Lubbock if Obama is reelected -- or the macho fantasy that tough-guy Tom Head and the tough-guy local sheriff would be able to stop them if they did, I tell you what.

As Cesca often says -- WOLVERINES!

As Jon Stewart says -- next stop, leash laws for unicorns.

And as I often say -- fucking Texas.

I'm not sure, but it seems his greatest objection is to the blue beanies. There is no dignity in being taken over as a country by an army of blue beanies.

It goes a level beyond even that. Check out the original article.

As far as I can tell, these guys want a TAX INCREASE to pay for the deputies that are going to stand in front of the U.N. APCs.

I swear to Christ -- I want to get my daughter out of there and then see the whole damn state nuked from orbit.

Well, it's the only way to be sure.

What do you expect? It's fucking Lubbock. That's not exactly the epicenter of evolution. There are plenty of us here in Texas that are fed up with these stupid-ass crackpots. The man is clearly pandering to help push a tax hike. Can you kindly send the sane among us some sort of coded warning message before you push The Button? I'll have my Malcontent Militia decoder ring with me at all times.

I love when they come up with these things...

The UN can barely run itself. It can't handle shit in Somalia, but is going to take over the US with no problem. Ugh.

And if the local sheriff gets into it, well, then the UN is truly fucked.

I think the problem for America is Right-Wingers have seen too many movies where some poor schmuck gets pulled into some fight he didn't want and comes out the winner. Unfortunately for these goofballs, as much as they want to be the lead, they are merely extras who will never get the starring role and only shoot themselves in the foot. They're comedy relief in a drama... basically, they're ruining the film, as they ruin everything.

(sorry, I'm rambling like a Republican... my apologies.)
