1944…1949…1984…2013: Which Doesn’t Belong and Why?*
Michelle Obama's Mirror ^ | 6-8-2013 | MOTUS

This Week in History:

June 6 marked the the 69th anniversary of D-Day. General Eisenhower addressed the troops departing for the invasion on the beaches of Normandy:


"The tide has turned! The free men of the world are marching together to victory.... We will accept nothing less than full victory!

Let us all beseech the blessing of Almighty God upon this great and noble undertaking.”

Did he mention God? To the troops? Oh my! What an unenlightened time that was. Imagine –a time when our troops felt free to implore a Higher Being as they embarked upon a deadly battle to protect and preserve freedom and liberty.

In fact, back then, people all over America still felt comfortable gathering in public to pray:


praying in america


Butt enough about that; none of it’s really relevant in the Age of Obama.




I mean, who needs prayers when we’ve got Obamacare? Well, maybe Sarah Murnaghan.



Pray for Sarah, that she doesn’t become the poster child for Death Panels

Next up on history’s time continuum: George Orwell’s 1984 was published on June 8, 1949. Boy, talk about synchronicity!

Press reports to the contrary, it turns out it actually was a handbook!




Now, not only is Big Brother watching you,


orwell obama creepy

 "It was one of these pictures which are so contrived that the eyes follow you about when you move BIG BROTHER IS WATCHING YOU, the caption beneath ran." George Orwell, 1984

he’s got the technological capacity to stalk you too!



“The choice for mankind lay between freedom and happiness and… for the great bulk of mankind, happiness was better.”George Orwell, 1984.


Anyhoo, once Big Guy had his thoughts remarks handed to him he proceeded to eloquently justify the government’s cyber spying on you:

“If people can’t trust not only the executive branch but also don’t trust Congress, and don’t trust federal judges, to make sure that we’re abiding by the Constitution with due process and rule of law, then we’re going to have some problems here.”

Oh yeah, we’ve got trouble all righty, right here in River City; with a capital T and that rhymes with P and that stands for Prism.

“You can shout Big Brother or program run amok, but if you actually look at the details, I think we’ve struck the right balance.”

When balance defies the law of physics, it’s probably an illusion.

"Late Lament": Moody Blues

Unfortunately we’re not allowed to look at those details because the most transparent administration in the history of the world doesn’t really trust us with them. Until they’ve been circulated for input, comment and revision. At least 12 times.

So if your government doesn’t trust you,


orwell obama devil


How can they expect you to trust the government?

i can hear you now copyThe oPhone: when they’re “free” you’re not. Can you hear me now?



“In a time of universal deceit, telling the truth becomes a revolutionary act.”  - George Orwell 1984

*1944…1949…1984…2013: Which Doesn’t Belong and Why? The correct answer is 2013, because the U.S. President is no longer fighting for freedom and liberty. Butt I’m sure there are other correct answers too.

Serious question: Aside from Reagan, and the 40th anniversary, did we really commemorate D-Day every year? Why not V-E Day, or V-J Day?
