People Wonder Why I Call Obama ‘#OccupyResoluteDesk’

Via the Tatler, we have the head #Occupier in Rolling Stone:

OBAMA: You know, I think that Occupy Wall Street was just one vivid expression of a broader anxiety that has been around in the United States for at least a decade or more. People have a sense the game is rigged, so just a few people can do well, and everybody else is left to scramble to get by.

Is there any doubt that the #Occupy movement is, to leadership, what BHO’s other big accomplishment, ObamaCare, is to legislation? Praising a dead-end breakdown of civilization itself, cynically. The faux sympathy display must be the sweetest nectar to him.

Arguably the most well-known fly ever.
I explored the Obama-Occupy-Resolute-Desk-Hayes connection here.
Rutherford is the man

As I was telling designated Lefty troll Anamika in the comments the other day, #OccupyResoluteDesk is going to be blog traffic gold after Occupy Unmasked gets released, connecting Commie Obama and #Occupy very clearly for everyone. That the Resolute Desk which Obama #Occupies was delivered originally to Rutherford B. Hayes is just ointment on the fly.

Aside: what’s this “Senator Chuck (You) Schumer” thing? People need to counsel The Lonely Conservative about subliminal profanity. Also, Doug Ross.

    He’s a usurper. A pretender to the throne. If this is the Lion King, he’s Scar. And with his rule comes ruin.

     And that’s exactly what he would like to be, and tries to be-a king.

    #Occupant Obama: “You see any flies one me? … Oh, you do? Um, well, stop it. Racist.”

    Rose, Obama has this Kipling poem near the top of my reading list:

    Three things make earth unquiet
    And four she cannot brook
    The godly Augur counted them
    And put them in a book —
    Those Four Tremendous Curses
    With which mankind is cursed;
    But a Servant when He Reigneth
    Old Augur entered first.

    An Handmaid that is Mistress
    We need not call upon.
    A Fool when he is full of Meat
    Will fall asleep anon.
    An Odious Woman Married
    May bear a babe and mend;
    But a Servant when He Reigneth Is Confusion to the end.


    His vows are lightly spoken,
    His faith is hard to bind,
    His trust is easy broken,
    He fears his fellow-kind.
    The nearest mob will move him
    To break the pledge he gave —
    Oh, a Servant when he Reigneth
    Is more than ever slave!

    #OccupyResoluteDesk is going to be blog traffic gold after Occupy Unmasked gets released

    Hope is a good thing. But for now, as far as the comments attracted to this blog post go, that hash tag is still a FAIL as indicated by the low (almost non-exsistent) usage adoption among your peers and the interest generated the readers of this blog, inspite of your resolute efforts to promote the ‘clever’/original  meme.

    You know what’s the most crucial predictor of success in a creative field is? It’s perseverance.

    Now if you are thinking you are doing exactly that (persisting)….you got it all wrong. Perseverance, as in an ability to starting afresh after having to let go of a work that might be very close to your heart.

    IOW don’t get too attached to a creative work that you can’t let go and start afresh. Poets do it all the time. You don’t have to ‘kill’ a line that might not fit in the whole, you just put it aside in a shelf to rest for you know how long and re-use it (or not)  in another work.

    Speaking of the Obama Administration,

    “What do you do when an entire nation begins to lose the capacity to
    think rationally?  Many Americans spend a great deal of time criticizing
    the government, and there is certainly a lot to complain about, but it
    is not just the government that is the problem.  All over America,
    people appear to be going insane.  It is almost as if we have been
    cursed with stupidity.  Sadly, this applies from the very top of our
    society all the way down to the very bottom.  A lot of us find ourselves
    asking the following question much more frequently these days: “How
    could they be so stupid?”  Unfortunately, we are witnessing a complete
    collapse of common sense all over America.  Many people seem to believe
    that if we could just get Obama out of office or if we could just reform
    our economic system that our problems as a nation would be solved, but
    that is simply not true.  Our problems run much deeper than that.  The
    societal decay that is plaguing our country is very deep and it is
    everywhere.  We are a nation that is full of people that do not care
    about others and that just want to do what is right in their own eyes. 
    We hold ourselves out to the rest of the world as “the greatest nation
    on earth” and an example that everyone else should follow, and yet our
    own house is rotting all around us.  The words “crazy”, “insane” and
    “deluded” are not nearly strong enough to describe our frame of mind as a
    country.  America has become a sad, delusional old man that can’t even
    think straight anymore.  The evidence of our mental illness is everywhere.”

    Here is the article. I could certainly think of some better examples, but these will have to do for now.

    Insanity is over organizing anything, be it a nation, a home, or one’s own mind. No need for decisions in the moment, the rules override any decisions. If birds tried to make a rule for every movement of the wind, they’d all have to walk south and they’d die before they got there. So, there we are.

      No doubt the origin of the song ‘Tennessee Bird Walk’.

    But we need unruly birds! Even angry ones!

    Just not organized, angry ones!

    It’s mostly the pretense of love, while using others for our aims, which make us see them as tormenting devils, if they refuse to cooperate.

    However, my darling Pagan, love creates no pretenders to its throne.

    Well put, except methinks he would be satisfied with the title ‘Emperor’.
