Yes, thanks. Point taken. I just wanted to be very clear that they didn't say that.

You know, I think we all get that a lot of times when people say "Obama" they mean either the government or the administration or the presidency in general or as a rule. And lets face it, part of his job as a leader is to be exactly that kind of focal point...for the good as well as the bad.

In this case, it just seems more personal...more specific to the man than the office. Maybe that's what's disturbing me.

Well hell you're right. Things were a mess and many people had hope. Most of us who didn't hold out as much hope, again, maybe aren't as disappointed. It's an emotional time. I think Obama himself thought what he was saying was true...felt he really could make a difference for the better. I guess I'm saying he may have been naive.

Sounds like these were all old folks....not Obama's voter demographic. They probably reflect on the "good old days" of segregation




I have to agree with you on this one. If my Father wasn't already dead, Obama being elected would have probably killed him.

Even then, if he wasn't creamated, he surely would be rolling over in his grave.

I do think you are talking about an age group of people, who in their wildest dreams would never have thought it possible for a black man to be elected to the presidancy!

As far as reporting goes

Someone can talk smack all day about how someone should do this or that to my elected offical, let em talk...hell, I will listen in and see if they are at least creative.

Once they start planning on doing things...like really planning, thats when you do the reporting...key is elected offical...


Communist party plots and plans to take over America and turn it into a gulag, you report. Milita plots and plans to take over America and turn it into some redneck theocracy, you report it. Hippys plot and plan to overthrow america to turn it into some smelly 3rd world nation, you report it.

But ya, there is a big difference between expressing discontent and distaste for the government and making a comprehensive action to violently overthrow it...

I'm sorry but this story sounds completely fabricated. When something is pulled from memory how is their so much detail? The point could have been made so much earlier but you took the time to make descriptions of people. I've read fiction books with less descriptive characteristics than you give. Also I've had multiple surgeries due to a past football injury and I've been in several hospitals. Their is no way they would put a patient with an iv post surgery in the waiting room...just stupid.

Why do all "stories" have to read like a book on here? They really do sound made up and fabricated... Why?

Well telling a story like this helps the op with his obvious problems with dealing with people that do not agree with the president. Perhaps an attempt to pull more people to his side?

Either way why would the hospital make you wait in the waiting room so long? Sounds like a fairly small waiting room couldn't have been planning to stay their that long. Even if so you usually receive a personal room where the doctor will see you in a short amount of time. Most of those people you were conversing with should have been called upon.

This story is 100% factual. I wrote it down in my journal that night, and even wrote it to a friend here on ATS in a U2U. It is your prerogative to choose not to believe it. I have no agenda here and no reason to fabricate.

We were not in a hospital but in a doctors' waiting room. The practice consists of 8 vascular surgeons and doctors. One was in house, and 3 others were scheduled to be there but were running late in surgery. Our appointment time was 10:15 and we were told to be there at 10:00 to fill out paperwork. Our total wait was 50 minutes. That is hardly uncommon.

What I'd like to impress upon you is that these are the kind of things that were said against Hitler, but ignored. My arguments aside, it should at least raise an eyebrow when so many people (55 percent) regard the president as a socialist. And I assure you, these aren't the half that pay no taxes. They are those with a stake in this country.
Obama has stated repeatedly he is a progressive. He doesn't call himself a democrat, but a progressive. Look at progressive literature from the early 20th century, before the proponents discovered just how unpopular and what a tough sell it was. Before it was "repackaged."
Progressivism is marxism installed in stages, as opposed to violent revolution.
They require only tepid support to enact policies, from which there is no turning back. People have a tendency to disregard the old, and they shouldn't. They've seen this movie before. It doesn't end well. Remember government's last enormous forray into our pocket book. Social Security. So we pony up money, which the government promised to "invest", giving us a small pension at retirement. Only, they didn't actually "invest" anything. They spent the money, and a few trillion (14)more we don't have. As stated on camera by Obama and his health care "czar" the purpose of the healthcare take over is to redistribute wealth. The bad news is there, some just don't listen.
You may not realize it, but the recent "financial reform" package gives the gummint access to every financial transaction you make on your debit card. The ultiimate purpose is control Are you comfortable with the government knowing your travel patterns, purchases and habits? Do you think it's just a friendly curiousity. Do you beleive the gummint can give you some good advice and coupons based on your purchase habits. How about they'd like to know where every penny is in case they "need" it for the common good.
Not having seen the destruction, death, mahem and warfare first hand, many like to beleive that nothing bad will ever happen, that we have nothing to fear and the government is there to protect our liberty. This is proof that not enough "citizens" bothered cracking open a history book. Everything was lovely and upbeat in Germany in 1930, but six million roasted jews and a few heil Hitler's later, they discovered how free they were. Ask the hottest chick in Syria where she gets her neglige, and she'll tell you how free she is. Can't happen here. Sure it can. And it is. Question is, what are you going to do about it. You see, once people get a little power, they want more, and in fact they think they're so wonderful, they know what's best for you. So when we give consent to trade of even a small peice of liberty, they come back for more and more and more. When the checks and balances are just a memory, you'll see just how free you really are. Wake up.

Most of what you mention here already happened due to the Patriot Act. In addition, the bailout snowball was set in motion during past administrations, so while what you say is VERY alarming and might be VERY appropriate, it is not necessarily a reflection of a single man or administration. However, what someone mentioned, and which I'm not sure doesn't have some merit, about what kind of "news" someone watches could well explain some of the reactions like these that we're seeing.

I don't think I have ever said I''m going to kill that son-of-a- xxxxx. It is just not in my make-up. And Obama isn't going to kill the country. This back and forth between parties has been going on the our founding fathers. And by the way I am almost fifty.

I've had the same thing here. The hospital always has an Animal planet show on and the TV's control remote gone. "DO NOT TOUCH ME" reads the TV.

Same on Drs. offices or if you're waiting to get car repaired. I guess they dont want you to think they are promoting propaganda or promoting comments.

I dont think anyone wants any president dead. People will see something and forget they are in a public place and start unloading.

I cant say its a bad thing, after all, most of my Drs visits are due to the BS of the last 10 years, and i may throw a shoe at the tv...I could when i'm in one of my moods.

No dead presidents- we just want some darn peace of mind and some action and truth.

That's a really interesting point, dgtempe...TVs everywhere making people forget where they are. I know part of the reason I even stopped watching TV (for the most part) was that I found myself yelling at it!
Maybe he simply forgot where he was...

Obama to the Rescue



Well I would hardly call him America's savior.

I can't go along with killing the man.

I actually do hear this a lot from the 60 and older crowd at the VA. They are afraid. They are being told that Obama wants to take away their social security and their medicare. They are told that if their illness becomes too expensive, they will just be euthanized. And many of these people belive this because they hear it on tv. I can't go to the VAMC without hearing how much people hate Obama and wish he were dead. And yes, I've heard some admit that they'd like to do it. This is where fearmongering takes us. When you've lost everything, there's nothing left to lose. It's a sad state of afairs!

Breaks your heart in some ways, doesn't it? Again, I more fear what someone might do if they were to hear them talking this way. And that's sad too.

If you're making the claim that we are all programmed by the news we watch I say this. That would apply only to someone who makes the assumption that anything said on TV is true. You may have noticed the recent story regarding journolist, in which journalists were actively conspiring to deceive the public as to increase support for the Obama campaign. I do not trust journalists. I search for facts. It is easy to learn the truth regarding one's own actions by listening to his own words. The president refers to himself as a progressive. The president advocates redistribution of wealth, and as you may remember this made Joe the plumber famous. The president has a tendency to appoint self-proclaimed marxists to "czar" level positions. The president is therefore, by his own description, a marxist. Not because fox news says so (they haven't) and not because he's black. Whether or not you get a thrill running up your leg as you watch Obama, or think trading freedom for free government cheese is a great thing may in your case be influenced by television, but facts are stubborn things. So on the day you wake up, moderate "open minded" views and all, and you realize that you can't vacation in the rockies because you forgot to get a permit, and the government tells you you can't afford it anyway, remember that while you were giving him the benefit of the doubt, he was stealing your freedom.
As a side note, for some reason Obama supporters seem to think we're all crazy about George Bush. George Bush did only one thing moderately (pun) well, and that was to cut income tax rates. Clinton did a better job, after realizign the folks weren't interested in a government take over of health care. He caved in on the congress will to spend money, and therefore either lacked fiscal responsablity or was a weak-kneed consenus builder. We revere the constitution, not a party. We love freedom, not a child-like guardianship, and demand the freedoms that were supposedly protected by the constitution. These freedoms come from god, and are not granted or to be taken by government, and on this there is no comprimise. There are no "grey" areas.

My sentiments exactly.
Another point, and this has nothing to do with Obama other that the fact that he plays the game as well as any of them.
Governments get larger, like a malignant tumor, they grow. Unless an outside source can remove the tumor, or bring it under control, they kill the host. The tumor does not bring itself under control.
I personally believe we have "bubbles" in our economy so that this expansion of government APPEARS to be painless. Bubbles are engineered. When the economy is booming, people are employed, and the government expands painlessly. When the bubble collapses, government should shrink.
But no, tumors keep growing.

What...this surprises you?

You've got a huge generation gap in the waiting room with you. Folks that have probably seen more wars that you and I put together. Folks that have seen the good, the bad and the ugly for the last 80 years. And, yes, many of them probably have some form of racial intolerance as a result of their upbringings. Face it, they probably don't like the color of his skin. They probably don't think he is a U.S. Citizen.


And for the record, there were many wishing George Bush dead while he was in office. In fact, I seem to recall a video made about that exact scenario.

People of that age group have a lot of life experience and a lot of wisdom.
And it's possible they can see the writing on the wall more clearly than younger people.

I don't for a minute think they have become 'terrorists', lol, but I think they are expressing many things by their statements. The deep unhappiness with what their country has become, a sense of urgency about the need to stop the insanity for which Obama is now the (oh, so willing) 'figurehead'. And a sense of powerlessness. In the past they would have probably said 'Vote him out', but, they are too worldly wise and experienced to believe that is now possible.

I suspect this kind of response will become increasingly more prevalent under the current circumstances.

They may not have called him marxist...maybe not in so many words, but I'm sure they have at least alluded to it.

Also, I'm thinking you're getting the idea that I'm um for Obama?
