Sorry Romney you lose again !!

Time magazine has named President Barack Obama as its 2012 Person of the Year.
"We are in the midst of historic cultural and demographic changes," Time managing editor Richard Stengel said in announcing its choice. "And Obama is both the symbol and in some ways the architect of this new America."
Runners-up were Malala Yousafzai, the 15-year-old Pakistani women's rights activist who survived after being shot in the head and neck by Taliban; Apple CEO Tim Cook; Egypt's Islamist President Mohamed Morsi; and scientist Fabiola Gianotti. In 2011, Time picked "The Protester."
The magazine unveiled its Person of the Year selection on the "Today" show on Wednesday.
The president's reelection in November showed "the Obama effect was not ephemeral anymore, no longer reducible to what had once been mocked as that 'hopey-changey stuff,'" Time's Michael Scherer wrote in the accompanying cover story. "It could be measured in wars stopped and started; industries saved, restructured or reregulated; tax cuts extended; debt levels inflated; terrorists killed; the health-insurance system reimagined; and gay service members who could walk in uniform with their partners. It could be seen in the new faces who waited hours to vote and in the new ways campaigns are run. America debated and decided this year: history would not record Obama’s presidency as a fluke."

No great accomplishment, as every President, but what, 2?, have been given the distinction.

NICE GRAMMAR. Of course your intellect is par for the course for an Obongobot. Thanks to 60 years of Zionist social engineering through Ziocommie rags like "Time", the Talmudvision, and Hymieweird we have nearly illiterate sheeple such as yourself who idolize an incompetent megalomaniac like Obammy. All you boobs sound exactly the same and do nothing but parrot what you're told to spew like the mindless useful idiots you truly are. PITIFUL.

Here is the reason.

Washington.

President Barack Obama is considering sweeping legislation that will provide new benefits for many Americans. The Americans With No Abilities Act. Advocates of the millions of Americans who lack any real skills or ambition are hailing AWNAA as a major legislative goal.

Roughly 50 percent of Americans do not possess the competence and drive necessary to carve out a meaningful role for themselves in society,' said California Senator Barbara Boxer.'We can no longer stand by and allow People of Inability to be ridiculed and passed over. With this legislation, employers will no longer be able to grant special favors to a small group of workers, simply because they have some idea of what they are doing.'

In a Capitol Hill press conference, House Majority Leader Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid pointed to the success of the U.S. Postal Service, which has a long-standing policy of providing opportunity without regard to performance. Approximately 74 percent of postal employees lack any job skills, making this agency the single largest U. S. employer of Persons of Inability.

Private-sector industries with good records of non-discrimination against the Inept include retail sales (72%), the airport security industry (68%), and home improvement 'warehouse' stores (65%).

At the state government level, the Department of Motor Vehicles also has an excellent record of hiring Persons of Inability (63%).

Under The Americans With No Abilities Act, more than 25 million 'middle man' positions will be created, with important-sounding titles but little real responsibility, thus providing an illusory sense of purpose and performance. Mandatory non-performance-based raises and promotions will be given so as to guarantee upward mobility for even the most unremarkable employees. The legislation provides substantial tax breaks to corporations that promote a significant number of Persons of Inability into middle-management positions, and gives a tax credit to small and medium-sized businesses that agree to hire one clueless worker for every two talented hires.

Finally, the AWNAA contains tough new measures to make it more difficult to discriminate against the non-abled, banning, for example, discriminatory interview questions such as,'Do you have any skills or experience that relate to this job?'

'As a Non-abled person, I can't be expected to keep up with people who have something going for them,' said Mary Lou Gertz, who lost her position as a lug-nut twister at the GM plant in Flint, Michigan, due to her inability to remember 'righty tightey, lefty loosey.''This new law should be real good for people like me,' Gertz added. With the passage of this bill, Gertz and millions of other untalented citizens will finally see a light at the end of the tunnel.

Said Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL):'As a Senator with no abilities, I believe the same privileges that elected officials enjoy ought to be extended to every American with no abilities. It is our duty as lawmakers to provide each and every American citizen, regardless of his or her inadequacy, with some sort of space to take up in this great nation and a good salary for doing nothing.

SA ZICI CA PLOUA SI SA MERGI MAI DEPARTE

"Am inghitit tone de umilinta." (Traian Basescu, vara lui 2009)

In psihologia politica se vorbeste despre S.P.S.-"Sistemul Puternic-Slab". In ce consta el? Pe scurt, trebuie spus ca puterea are mai multi parametrii: militar, politic, economic, intelectual, psihologic etc. Niciun stat nu poate fi puternic din toate punctele de vedere. In cadrul sistemului, cel puternic incearca sa isi impuna vointa asupra celui slab si sa il exploateze pe acesta. Cel slab are doua optiuni: fie se supune, fie alege sa opuna rezistenta. Supunerea poate fi la randul ei temporara sau definitiva.

Cel puternic trebuie sa aibe grija ca cel slab sa stie ce are de castigat daca se supune si ce are de pierdut daca nu se supune. Cu cat cel puternic este mai puternic iar cel slab este mai slab sistemul este mai stabil. Cand cel puternic nu este foarte puternic si cel slab nu este foarte slab sistemul devine instabil. Cand cel slab alege sa opuna rezistenta, cel puternic incearca fie sa il aduca pe acesta inapoi in sistem, fie sa il excluda etichetandu-l in termeni care sa il stigmatizeze.

Revenind pe malurile Dambovitei, mi-aduc aminte ca la un moment dat lui Adrian Nastase i s-a spus ca "face politica cu fundul". Era perioada cand CDR era la guvernare. Pe vremea aceea, a fost un adevarat spectacol pana cand Victor Ciorbea si-a dat demisia care i se cerea de catre toata lumea de atata timp.

Emisiunea "Chestiunea Zilei" realizata de Florin Calinescu nu mai avea alt subiect decat mult solicitata plecare a respectivului membru al PNTCD, partid care de altfel a disparut de pe scena politica.

Tot pe atunci trebuia numit un nou prim-ministru. Se vorbea despre desemnarea unui tehnocrat in aceasta functie. Poetul Mircea Dinescu se amuza teribil atunci cand Mugur Isarescu, ditamai economistul, a spus ca trebuie sa se consulte cu parintii inainte sa accepte propunerea.

Pana la urma nu ma mai mira nimic in Romania, o tara in care inainte de 1989 programul la televizor era de doar trei ore iar cozile la paine erau de zeci de metri. Sportul, domeniul cu care se iesea in lume, ne da inca un exemplu sugestiv. Desi Romania ajunsese de doua ori in finala Cupei Campionilor Europeni si se calificase de doua ori la Campionatul Mondial, in 1995 inca nu puteai sa vezi la televizor rezumatul tuturor celor noua meciuri ale etapei de fotbal.

Teroristul palestinian Abdullah Azzam spunea o chestie foarte interesanta. Spunea el: "Sunt sapte ani de cand particip la Jihadul din Afganistan. Ma simt de parca as fi un copil de sapte ani. Restul vietii parca am trait degeaba.

Din 2008 si pana acum Basescu nu a facut decat sa apara la televizor mereu si mereu embarasat. Adoptarea legii votului uninominal, criza economica, alegerile prezidentiale, prabusirea avionului polonez, retragerea americana din Irak, anul 2011, iar acum 2012. Sa luam caseta, sa dam banda inapoi? In 2009 Basescu era deja plin de ura (vezi si sloganurile electorale), in 2010 Realitatea TV scria pe ecran: "Romania, tara in care penibilul este la putere". Au urmat apoi doi ani de taieri de salarii si pensii. Si atunci, unde este acel sentiment al onoarei de care tot vorbeau romanii?

LASATI-L CA E BATUT DE VIATA!

"In cadrul Imperiului lui Genghiz Han o fata virgina putea sa calatoreasca din Turan pana in Iran cu un vas plin cu monede de aur pe cap fara sa se teama pentru siguranta ei."

Un proverb oriental spune ca mostenirea trece asupra celui care sporeste prestigiul parintilor. Exprimat cu alte cuvinte aceasta inseamna ca cel care cinsteste memoria stramosilor va primi ceea ce merita.

Nu cu mult timp in urma am rasfoit o carte in care erau prezentati drept eroi cativa tatari care in Primul Razboi Mondial au murit pentru Romania luptand impotriva Imperiului Otoman. Romanilor, care ii asimileaza pe tatari cu turcii, asta le place cel mai mult, le merge la inima. Sa te vada pe tine ca lupti impotriva propriului tau neam. Regele Ferdinand tocmai de aceea este apreciat, pentru ca el ca german a luptat impotriva Germaniei.

Si pentru ca a inceput Campionatul European de Fotbal as spune ca eu nu joc cu sabia lui Damocles deasupra capului. Amenintarile dusmanilor nu ma sperie deloc. Asta este tot ce pot ei. La urma urmei care este echivalentul moral al razboiului? Iar pana una alta criza aceasta este aici, nu altundeva.

Eu nu voi trada idealurile pentru care lupt, pentru nimic in lume. Daca securistii au impresia ca eu sunt naiv, inseamna ca nu stiu cu cine au de-a face. Eu nu sunt Vasile Ianul. Trebuie reamintit ca la inceputul anilor '90 se facusera tot felul de transferuri dubioase de jucatori la Dinamo. Vasile Ianul a fost inchis pentru asta, si cand a iesit ameninta ca va face dezvaluiri privind alte persoane implicate in acele tranzactii si mentiona numele lui Lucescu. Insa Mircea Lucescu, actualul antrenor al lui Sahtior Donetsk, ii radea in nas. Le spunea ziaristilor: "Lasati-l ca e batut de viata!"

La ce visa PDL-ul? La Romania Mare? In fond ce reprezinta 20 de ani la scara istoriei? In unele carti chiar se recunoaste ca Romania Mare (1918-1940) nu a fost altceva decat un bacsis pe care Antanta l-a oferit acestor moldo-valahi.

Putin mai mult de 20 de ani a durat ocuparea Olteniei de catre Imperiul Habsburgic in secolul XVIII, mai precis intre 1719-1739.

Sa nu uitam ca, in 1683, Murat Ghiray bin Mubarak Ghiray bin Selamet Ghiray I a refuzat sa ii ajute pe turci la Viena insa hanul a lasat pe campul de lupta un grup de 500-600 de tatari care sa apere Steagul Profetului.

In incheiere merita subliniat ca Hanatul Crimeii a fost singurul vasal musulman al Imperiului Otoman, in conditiile in care tarile arabe de azi erau atunci doar niste provincii, iar asta spune totul despre prestigiul pe care il are tara noastra.
