I just now saw your post. Mine, at 48:

Sadly, I now expect Dear Leader to be the Person of the Year every year for the rest of my natural life.

Oh, no. They will have to give Michelle Antoinette the honor as they pave the way for her run in 2016.

^^^
I don’t know. I think that depends on whether or not they think it is necessary to pretend to actually have a presidential election again.

Sad to say, I am not being sarcastic. I am 65, and I truly believe that I will never again witness an honest presidential election. Last night, I told my husband that I see no point in wasting my time any more in any sort of political activism. He said I was giving up, but I told him that I am just facing reality. Our republic has ended.

Maybe they’re trolls or they’re the wishy washy lets reach out , lets us be together save the people, help the illegals, ignore social issues, who cares about homosexual agenda’s idiots.
The man has increased food stmaps, unemployment, debt, spending, military gone to crap, foreign affairs gone to crap, we’ve become weaker, foreclosures and that;s just a few and he;s man of the year.

You can;t even make this crap up anymore.

The real shock is that he hasn’t been named Man of the Year every single year since 2008. Given the way Time and the soon-departed Newsweek have slobbered all over him since late 2007, it is a shock each year he hasn’t won.

The good news is that Time and its stupid choices will inevitably join Newsweek on history’s ash heap.

I remember in the old comic strip, “The Wizard of Id,” the little tinpot king always won the kingdom’s popularity contest.

We’re about there, now.

Our electoral process has become so perverted and corrupted, the idea of a remotely honest election at the presidential level is a thing of the past. The best alternative at this point is to concentrate on keeping state governorships and legislatures out of the democrats' tentacles as much as possible. That'll at least help somewhat slow down the decline.

Oh barf. How about another Nobel Peace Prize? Oscar? Piginablanket? What has he deliberately done to deserve any of this? I said deliberately, meaning, not counting the fact that he’s half-flac, and he didn’t have any control over that, at least not that we know of; but then again, he’s the mussiuh, and can do anything. .. . blech.... (Tha’s racist!)

The cult worship continues.

There's no doubt in my mind there are some serious demonic forces protecting this guy.

The worst president in American history gets reelected. People celebrate.
Thousands of weapons get shipped to criminals across the globe, and no one cares.
Unprotected kids get slaughtered in a school, and innocent American citizens get punished for it. No outrage.
Radical Muslims in the middle east are not only funded by U.S. dollars, they've got Israel surround. People look the other way.
4 Americans get slaughtered because they were set up as sitting ducks, yet there's no one held accountable anywhere. Just crickets.
More and more people are living in absolute poverty, yet they think the man who caused it all is their savior. What?
The world has never been so divided or in such chaos, yet Oboma gets a "peace" prize to kick off his reign of terror? He get's his image reproduced and is worshiped as the greatest person of the year. Why? What has he done that turned out well? Nothing!

No one knows who this man is, or where he came from. He mysteriously showed up on the scene, and all we know is what he's told us about himself.

I believe people can sense when something isn't right even though they can't explain why they feel the way they do - they just KNOW. People are prepping for something. They're arming themselves and stocking food, and have all kinds of ideas about what MIGHT be coming, but they 're not sure exactly what IT is. They just KNOW something isn't right.

And that no man may buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.
Here is wisdom. Let him that hat understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number IS six hundred threescore and six.”

1938 Adolf Hitler
1939, 1942 Joseph Stalin
1957 Nikita Khrushchev
1978, 1985 Deng Xiaoping
1979 Ayatollah Khomeini
2008,2012 Barack Hussein Obama

I’d say Obama most certainly belongs on that list, with the other anti-American communists and supporters of terrorists. I don’t know where Obama falls on the socialist spectrum between national socialism and soviet socialism, but he fits right in with the rest of those “influential people, for good or for ill” who have destroyed millions of lives.

No hope of that here in the ‘Rat-Owned state of Maryland.

George Washington must be turning over in his grave as he thinks about one of the nicknames my state has. It is called the “Old Line State” because Washington praised the Maryland militia as a valiant line of defense.

Zero the Usurper getting kudos from the propaganda ministry of kool-aid? You don’t say.

The current squatter in the White Hut, a purple lipped crack smoking/coke snorting mentally ill narcissitic puppet who spends his days engaged in sodomy and sitting around smoking can’t even speak from the heart with his supposed condolences wiping fake tears from the opposite side of his tear ducts having to look down to read a piece of paper as usual use a teleprompter issuing statements via this puppet’s handlers like Jarrett and associated liberal fascist scum for the Newtown tragedy.

The constant adorning by the hack press is utterly laughable, the next hard interview being Conan O’brien probably.

Zero has no leadership skills, because Zero hasn’t run a fruit stand. He’s a muslim allegianced marxist who grew up from the ages 9-18 under the mentoring of a sex pervert sodomite pedophile commie who aided foreign born children, who was under the watchful eye of the FBI, Frank Marshall Davis. But alas radical associations, the equivalent of the KKK don’t matter to traitorous media or associated lemmings buying this kool-aid.

In addition, Zero is a foreign born undocumented fraud — there is no other avenue of reason folks. No birth documents presented, all avenues for simple reasonable answers are blocked, scrubbed, thwarted; his obvious forged supposed long form he dug out for the press conference under criminal investigation for forgery, etc by AZ law enforcement. Meanwhile the HI Dept of Health, corrupted to the core, playing games for 4 years changing their own rules and statutes to protect Barry, then admit with documentation no legal binding documents for Zero exist. The bigger issue is the rule of law, our Constitution, and a ruling class elitist scum who are in cooperation with such tyranny..after all, John McCain was foreign born and ineligible to serve the Presidency as well. Resolution 511 kids. Look it up.

Now the liberal fascist nuts are overreaching going after guns, at a period in history of the largest gun sales, nearly 155,000 NICS checks on black friday alone, new record, since Zero got re-elected and this regime’s established record of ignoring the rule of law and the Constitution, not to mention near economic collapse... now ammo pallets and all manner of firearms are disappearing.

Oh bravo libby lightweights, this should really turn out well for you. Well, not really, as the Doctrine of One Hundred Heads (look it up) gets dusted off and immaculated for eruption.

And all magazine restrictions, capacity bans, gun bans, private party purchase bans, gun show bans, etc WILL BE IGNORED> WE WILL NOT COMPLY
