Can An Oath Of Office Be Treason?
Today, we have three problems:
1. Swearing on the Bible as above with no intention of upholding that solemn promise. The current President actually believes the Constitution is “dead for all practical purposes”(as stated to Vladimir Putin in 2009.) Too many public servants take the oath as a rite of passage with no binding responsibilities. That must change. Now!...

Let's try again davey, why would the Dingus Dave Mortgage co. make loans to umworthy borrowers it had no reasonable expectation that would get re paid?
Until you answer that, you have no credibility, your head is firmly ensconced in denial land.
Here is where you are wrong.

The CRA said banks needed to use a portion of their profits to help those in the local communities. For some that wanted a mortgage but could not afford the payments under the standard interest, banks would offer a mortgage with a lower rate. The buyers STILL HAD TO SHOW THEY COULD AFFORD THOSE PAYMENTS.

The West Point think tank known as the Combating Terrorism Center has issued a paper on the dangers posed by the far right in this country, specifically people who espouse “civil activism, individual freedoms and self-government,” and says that these people tend to be anti-federalist, white supremacist, and fundamentalist in their views.

According to the paper, liberalism, including that which is seen in other developed nations, looks forward to the future, while conservative movements, especially those here, look backward and cling to an idealized version of history. They also hold a belief that the government is inherently tyrannical and given to intruding on civil and constitutional rights as much as they can. According to the paper, these people initiated 350 attacks in 2011.

One of the core issues with the extreme right is that while they espouse individual freedom and like to try and spread fear regarding the government’s activities, they also seem to believe in a type of authoritarianism—one of the very things they profess to loathe in government—that includes a strong resistance to authority from what they view as “outgroups,” namely blacks and women, unions, and more.

They also seem to view the Constitution as a static document, unchanging despite the way society has changed over the last 230 years, and want laws made and judges to rule based on the original intent of the document. Here’s the issue with that: When it comes to the 2nd Amendment (for example), the original intent of the amendment was to preserve slavery. The words,“A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State…” refer to the freedom of white men in the southern states to own slaves, and to police those slaves with their militias as they saw fit. The original intent was not to ensure the people’s freedom from a tyrannical government, which is what every gun-rights activist espouses today.

Given that slavery hasn’t existed here for more than 150 years, the original intent of the 2nd Amendment is not applicable to today’s society. The extreme right, however, would argue that we are becoming slaves of the government, if we aren’t already, with anecdotes and paranoia fueling their claims.

According to an article published on CNN in August 2012, eight attacks perpetrated by extreme right-wingers have been carried out in the U.S. since 9/11 (though the study by the West Point think tank does say 350 just in 2011), compared with four carried out by Islamic jihadists. It makes mention, however, of more than 50 attacks by white supremacists that resulted in 7 deaths, though it was concluded that these were racially motivated and not political acts.

When it comes to guns and Obamacare, everyone, it seems, is a constitutional scholar – except, of course, for the actual constitutional scholar who currently resides in the White House. One by one, law enforcement officials are declaring the President’s exceedingly tame executive orders unconstitutional and they are planning to refuse to enforce them.

Sheriff Justin Smith of Larimer County, Colorado has problems with President Obama’s executive orders on gun violence. The one he has a particularly hard time with is the order on background checks. As Westword shared from Smith’s Facebook page:

In a shocking, on-air moment that occurred on January 17, 2013, Fox 5′s DC correspondent, Holly Morris, was discussing the upcoming presidential inauguration and the extravagance of The Willard InterContinental Hotel when she looked straight into the camera and said:“It’s been a key n*****…inaugural spot for over 150 years.”

First of all, it is none of government's business to order a company - any company - to direct their profits into the government's pet projects. Raise taxes to fund their pet projects maybe - but that was cause a stink, a taxpayer revolt. So, instead, they opt to publicly paint local/regional banks as being greedy, corrupt usury monsters, call in racist groups like the NAACP along with the Jesse Sharptons to dance around the Liberal media cameras and then hit those banks with the CRA krap. Socialist Browbeating is right out of the Saul Alinsky playbook, dood. "Community Organizer" is codeword for Socialist Party Operative. The Boy Messiah is one of them.

Secondly, just about anybody can show they can "afford" things. Actually making the payments is a whole different ballgame. How many blacks get their goods repossessed? How many million dollar lottery winners can show they can "afford" million dollar homes and the a few years later are standing before a bankruptcy judge?

How many sports celebrities show they can "afford" high end mortgages because of 30 million dollar contracts and 5 years later are crying poverty?

How many Hollywood Liberals file bankruptcy after showing everyone in the financial community they can "afford" Heaven on Earth accommodations? Lindsy Lohan?

How would YOU like to be the guy sent to remove a black family from a S. Chicago $10,000 house they they refused to make payments on because Al Sharpton said they deserved to screw over a bank?

Fool.

No one would have know Roberts messed up. Everyone knew Obama messed up if insisting on being right was, indeed, the case. Another omen of sorts.

Truth hurts and that's why you avoid it at all costs.
lol! It applies as a matter or your opinion son!

The fact is, you've avoided the Annenberg issue since it was pointed out to you that the foundation was created by a conservative.

That is the truth. And you look rather stupid trying to avoid it!

But I love your comedy!
