I've Had It!
Self | USConservative

Posted on 10/27/2012 9:32:09 AM PDT by usconservative

I've had my fill. That's enough. This morning I'm shaking I'm so ANGRY!!!

I've been away from the news a few days because of my work schedule, so imagine my SHOCK when I read this morning that someone, somewhere in the Obama Administration or one of his appointees DENIED three plea's to rescue Ambassador Chris Stevens, Navy Seals Glen Doherty & Tyrone Woods and another American during the terrorist attack on our consulate in Benghazi!

Not only DENIED, but our folks who COULD HAVE rescued them were told to STAND DOWN three times?!

Where the hell is the bloody damn' media? Why aren't they DOING THEIR JOBS and reporting this?!

I've had enough volunteering for Romney! Someone needs to tell this TRUTH to the American people and if it's down to me then I'll do it!

Granted I live in Illinois, and it's DEMOCRAT CONTROLLED HELL here, but I have to do something!

This morning I painted a 4'x4' sign with bright red letters that say "OBAMA LIED WHILE AMERICANS DIED IN LIBYA!"

Right now it's on the corner where I live. I'm taking it out to the main road that has TONS of traffic, a 4-way stop and two gas stations on the corner and I'm displaying that sign ALL DAY.

I just can't take it anymore, and I have to do something with the energy this ANGER is generating. Even if it is this SOCIALIST HELL-HOLE called ILLINOIS!

Good work! People need to know about this. To think, the heroic actions of those men is to buried, hidden, downplayed, because the situation in Benghazi might hurt zero's election bid.

To think obama was watching via drone, repeatedly ordering the rescue teams to stand down and just watching our heroes die...My stomach is turning over. What a coward and snake obama is.

You want to get Angry? Try talking to Friends or other people about what happened! People give you a blank stare because the Obama Butt kissing media is covering up and distracting people with non-sense. But EVERYONE can tell me about how Romney is Rich and all the mainstream Democrat talking points....UGH!

Obama only cares about golf, cheeseburgers, Beyonce and Jay-Z.

He likes disaster and mayhem. So does the Father of Lies, the Devil.

Proverbs says watch out for those “given to CHANGE”.

Proverbs 24:21-22

King James Version (KJV)

21 My son, fear thou the Lord and the king: ***and meddle not with them that are given to CHANGE:***

22 For their calamity shall rise suddenly; and who knoweth the ruin of them both?

There are others in IL waiting for someone to do something. You are a leader and a Patriot, good for you! You’ll never know how you might make others feel when they see your sign - like ‘Thank God someone is speaking out’. Barry’s orders were to stand down and American’s died and you are STANDING UP! God Bless you!

Good !But I don’t think that you are going to change anyone’s mind. For those who know about the muslim, they understand and you are preaching to the choir. To the impostor’s worshpers, they do not have the intelligence to form independent thoughts, if told that it was a video that caused it and that their idol was sending help but Bush stopped him. They will believe that.

It is interesting that in his report, Bret Baier said that the special team that came in hours after the attack began found Stevens alive, but unresponsive and took him to the hospital where he was treated unsuccessfully and later died.

But the internet was rife with pictures of him (or his body) in the hands of the savage soldiers of Allah.

There s another article here today about Obama being a narcissist. He truly is, he's a snake charmer, fooled people into believing him, when in fact a narcissist is not very smart, has no empathy for anyone but themselves & is evil to the core.

They actually enjoy others pain. They think they are right about everything & it's their way or the highway. Their minds do not work like a normal person, you could talk til you're blue in the face & never get thru to them.

I live in Ill-Annoy too, be safe, lots of liberals here!

“the Obama Butt kissing media is covering up and distracting people with non-sense.”

O’Reilly and Hannity covered this well last night.

I know Obama is evil, but some people are hard to convince. Pointing out this administrations misdeeds comes across politicized.

A better angle when trying to educate others may be to get them to understand how corrupt the media is. We have to make people understand they are listening to the moral equivalent of Nazi and Communist propaganda.

Obama was a candidate created with smoke and mirror images. He had no substance or credible achievements anywhere in his life. "...he's a snake charmer, fooled people into believing him, when in fact a narcissist is not very smart, has no empathy for anyone but themselves & is evil to the core."

I once heard Paul Harvey explain why radio works so well, especially for advertising. He said that while a filmed image of a threatening big black horse charging up to the fence may scare people, he could say "imagine a horse running along a fence" and most people would have an image of a serene pasture and the type of horse they like, be it a thoroughbred, palomino or new born colt. Barack Obama was packaged so that people could imagine the candidate they wanted to vote for and insert him into the fantasy.

I most definitely share your passion on this matter. I find myself wanting to take to the streets over this. I hear Rush’s caller’s voice in my sleep. I find myself wanting someone of some importance to point and shout in Hillary Clinton’s face. She has taken all this country has to offer throughout her life.....land she does this??? The old hag is worried about running for president in 2016 so she doesn’t step forward and show some dignity? No explanation is going to satisfy me. Only punishment.

I have been doing the same thing, but on a smaller scale, since the Clinton Regime.As far as I know, I haven't changed the first mind. Those who thought as I do agreed with me and knew what was happening. The Democrats did not care to learn the truth. They believed what their masters told them to believe and were totally uninterested in learning the truth. When presented with proof they could not reputiate, they resorted to shouting slogans such as, "Everybody does it and Nixon did it too!"

I learned from experience that trying to reason with a Democrat is like wetting your pants in the dark. It gives you a warm feeling, but no one notices.

I don’t think it is about changing minds, rather giving moral support to one another so that people realize they are not alone in their thinking and they are then made more bold too. Best hope would be to make such a big stir that the media would HAVE to cover it.

INCAPABLE of learning the truth. Their minds are deceived.

So try to think whatever you do is giving encouragement to those who need someone to take the lead. Don't focus on what you think you aren't doing. You/me are responsible for what we do - and that is to act.

The libs never think they can't or it's a waste of time and they can NEVER change my mind but they doesn't stop them, they only get louder and more evil!

Remember the chick a fila event where thousands of Patriots stood up for one citizen, Candy, who shared our beliefs - some event should be planned for next weekend to take the country by storm and said we want the 'killer' Barry out of our house.

He kills jobs/business - the American way of Life, he kills American military, he kills babies, he kills traditional marriage, he kills the budget. Satan has come to KILL/rob/destroy. He wants to kill patriotism - may Americans STAND UP for AMERICA! Never listen to his wish to 'stand down'. YOU DO and can make a difference!

SEE what one voice can do? We all have a voice but maybe not a platform - but we use it nonetheless. We know what the voice of 'the British are coming' did.

This morning I painted a 4’x4’ sign with bright red letters that say “OBAMA LIED WHILE AMERICANS DIED IN LIBYA!”

Good for you!

I made two signs for my car. And I love driving around with them in my liberal state. But I take them off when I park! They say this:

Romney / Ryan Wise Choice:
Jobs, Intelligence, Integrity

I put American Flag stickers along the bottom. These came out nice. Feel free to copy for YOUR vehicle! I put them in the lower Right side view passenger window and in the lower left driver side window.

I used Times New Roman for all print. “Romney / Ryan” in bold- Font size 80
“Wise Choice” -Font size 64-
“Jobs, Intelligence, Integrity” -Font size 80

I might need to remake these (See Vehicle Code for your state.) Mine says the sign can be 7” x 7” on passenger side which would then make the sign look like this-same font and bolding as before but all in size 80 font this time: :
7”x 7”
Romney /Ryan
Wise Choice:
Jobs,
Intelligence,
Integrity

For Driver’s Side:

5” x 5 “
Jobs +
Intelligence +
Integrity =
Romney

Check the vehicle code in your state. Mine says that
V C Section 26708 Material Obstructing or Reducing Driver x2019 s View

Material Obstructing or Reducing Driver’s View

26708. (a) (1) A person shall not drive any motor vehicle with any object or material placed, displayed, installed, affixed, or applied upon the windshield or side or rear windows.

(2) A person shall not drive any motor vehicle with any object or material placed, displayed, installed, affixed, or applied in or upon the vehicle that obstructs or reduces the driver’s clear view through the windshield or side windows.

(3) This subdivision applies to a person driving a motor vehicle with the driver’s clear vision through the windshield, or side or rear windows, obstructed by snow or ice.

(b) This section does not apply to any of the following:

(1) Rearview mirrors.

(2) Adjustable nontransparent sunvisors that are mounted forward of the side windows and are not attached to the glass.

(3) Signs, stickers, or other materials that are displayed in a seven-inch square in the lower corner of the windshield farthest removed from the driver, signs, stickers, or other materials that are displayed in a seven-inch square in the lower corner of the rear window farthest removed from the driver, or signs, stickers, or other materials that are displayed in a five-inch square in the lower corner of the windshield nearest the driver.

(4) Side windows that are to the rear of the driver.

(5) Direction, destination, or terminus signs upon a passenger common carrier motor vehicle or a schoolbus, if those signs do not interfere with the driver’s clear view of approaching traffic.

(and there is more at http://www.dmv.ca.gov/pubs/vctop/d12/vc26708.htm

so it sounds like we could attach this sign to our sun visor and point it toward the side window.

Only the President can give the order to the military to stand down. Obama murdered these 4 Americans and more would have been murdered if 2 seals didn’t disobey ( and helped anyway). Obama told military to stand down for crass political reasons to help it (it thought) in its election. the media covers for it.

This communist Pos monster Obama must be defeated in the election.

Came back inside to warm up a bit and mount the 4'x 4' sign on a pole. I've been holding it up in the air all these hours and my arms gave out.

Several folks stopped to ask for pictures, or if they could buy me something to eat or drink. One of these folks showed me his US Navy tattoo and said thank you to me for being out there. We chatted a few minutes and held the sign up, I was very glad to meet him.

Some drove by extending their middle fingers telling me I'm #1, and a few shouted insults.

One very heavy black woman stopped to yell "what's libya you punk ass ...." (I cannot repeat the rest.) I laughed at her, that was all I could do.

I get far more honks and thumbs-ups than anything else, shocking here in Illinois.

The folks who've given me the finger are typically black, some latino and much to my surprise, elderly white men. (I guess they're afraid of losing their social security?)

Anyway, there's a quick update, I'm mounting the sign on a 7' tall 2x4 and going back out. Taking my iPad and a hotspot with me, maybe I'll post an update in a bit.

One last thing: I haven't read all the messages on this thread, I was happy to come back and see replies, I'll respond more later.

Yep, had one of those conversations today.

They “heard” about Bengazi, but had no idea what “happened” in Bengazi.

Needless to say, I filled them in. They went from NOT bothering to Vote to Voting Romney / Ryan.

I'm in Commiefornia, so it probably won't make a difference, but I did get a tingle down my leg.

I blame my old Prostate for that.

Thank you and keep us updated. It takes guts to go out and protest alone. My husband has done it several times and always gets lots of positive responses.

I wonder if people are doing this all over the country but since it is never reported we all feel like we are alone.

Posting an update from yesterday.

First, my arms are very, very sore and I can hardly type this morning. I held up my sign for several hours before my arms gave out and I came home to mount the sign on a 2x4. At which point, I went back out until just about sundown.

The number of POSITIVE responses I received far, far outnumbered the middle-fingers and those who yelled insults as they drove by.

Lots of folks took picutres, some took video's with their phones as they drove by. (those were easy to spot, they had their cellphones up to their windshields or out their windows.)

One person stopped and told me she saw my sign on facebook, one of her friends had posted it and asked her friends to all come out and show support. Coincidentally, one woman who stopped and hugged me told me she was going to post it on her facebook, and a half-hour later there were a number of cars that went by honking and waving. That gave me a big burst of energy.

Several former military folks stopped to say "thank you", one was US Navy who showed me his id card and tattoo on his forearm. I was so very humbled by those in the military who stopped to say thank you, and I thanked them for their service to our country.

The intersection I was at was at had a stop light and two gas stations. Speed limit was 45mph and the intersection frequently backs up so thousands of cars had a good view of my sign which said "OBAMA LIED WHILE AMERICAN'S DIED IN LIBYA" in bright, bold red letters.

Those who gave the middle finger or shouted insults can be summarized as follows:

Mostly younger white males, driving those stupid loud tiny cars with loud mufflers and stupid paint jobs.

A fair number of older white males gave me the finger too, guess they're afraid of losing their social security or something. Sucks to be them I suppose, brainwashed.

About ten cars full of latino's drove by shouting insults with "Obama rules" being the most popular.

While I live in a predominantly white (95%) area, the road I was on is the only east-west road between two main highways so it gets alot of traffic. I did see alot of black Americans driving by, less than a handful indicated their disapproval. Most just drove through and ignored the sign. The handful that did voice their objections called me every name under the sun.

Surprisingly, I was only called "RACIST!" once - and that was by an older white male. Go figure.

One rather large black woman stopped and yelled "what's a Libya?" calling me every name under the sun. I had to laugh at her as I turned my back and pointed my sign in another direction.

Overall, I have to say that the positive responses far outnumbered the negative ones easily 10:1. I didn't keep exact track, but I did note the number of honks and thumbs-ups I received before I'd get a negative response, so 10:1 feels about right, maybe a tad conservative.

That's pretty much about it, I was really encouraged yesterday by the experience. One person who stopped and stayed with me for awhile said I was doing a good thing. I was telling other people it was OK for them to be angry and that someone else felt the way they did. I sure heard those people hit their horns and give a thumbs-up as they went by. I really appreciated her encouragement.

I'll be out again today after church this morning. I expect to be out again until the sun goes down or the sky opens up and starts raining here. It's very gloomy and it looks like it's about to rain now, so I'll have to play it by ear.

Thanks for all the encouraging posts on this thread, I appreciate everyone who gave me encouragement here also. I'll find a way to post some pic's to this thread at some point today/tonight also.

Thanks for going back out again today.Stay warm and dry.

My husband and I will be going to a sign waving event sponsored by a local tea party group. We are supposed to wave signs for Romney and Josh Mandel from Ohio running for the US Senate. Instead we will have signs about Benghazi.
