Necrothreading much?

Article content

Article copy

The one positive aspect of Barack Hussein Obama: he is not Al Gore.

... To retrocede to the current White House dweller a full capitalized initial "P" as soon as he produces a genuine and valid certificate of birth establishing his quality of natural born U.S. citizen.

Until then, I pledge to denominate him publicly and privately, in speech and in writing, ad absurdum and illico presto as Barack Hussein Obama, Resident of the United States of America[1][2].

Yeah, I know there are far more pressing issues (for one, his Obama Youth Brigades Bill is a very depressing news from America coming to this French well aware of Europe's recent totalitarian past and permanent taste for Collectivist coercion) but seriously, all he has to do to dispel any doubt is fire up the old Xerox machine and send us a copy. Shouldn't be too difficult for that allegedly super geeky dude who owns an iphone (Ooh!) and has a Twitter account (Aah!).

Say, what is your pledge?
  1. Though only when I find myself in the mood for good manners vis-a-vis European style Socialists.
  2. Plus, it also works in French: Barack Hussein Obama, Résident des États-Unis d'Amérique. Awesome!

I own, built and run this place. In a previous life I was not French but sadly, I died.

I pledge to the Charter of Human Rights by the United Nations (which, incidently, includes one's right to protect one's own life, ie: the right to bear arms).

I also pledge alliegance to Prime Minister Harper and the Canadian Charter of Rights, which saddly does not mention my right to defend myself.

As for Obama trying to have a working relationship with Chirac, what can I say? Oups? lol Trop drôle.

I'm sure Chirac would love to accomodate Barri in this.

And my pledge? To fight all socialist enemies of America. The left is pushing for their civil war, been working towards it since the 1960s, and being a considerate kinda guy I will help them out. Wouldn't want to be rude and inconsiderate now, would we?!?!

OMG! You mean Jacques isn't the president of France!?

Just kidding. Of course, I think Obama's little schoolyard note passing to Chirac was a bit more sinister than mere stupidity and/or ignorance -- but that's just the result of having a cynical and skeptic nature.

I pledge to live my life in as decent and honest a way as I can, to try my best to survive this totalitarian onslaught on my country and its people, and to be as cantankerous and unwieldly as possible as one of the little cogs in this administration's well oiled machine (thereby, hopefully, helping to trigger its foundering).

I also pledge to work extra hard to keep my children safe from the foul stench of this "youth corp", in this I thank my lucky stars that there are people in my life whose wisdom in flying under the rader I can draw upon -- God bless them.

Did y'all hear about Barri just wondering into a meeting in the WH, a meeting at which was Comrade Gorbachev. Just by accident and whatnot.

And amatuer hour continues.

Um! Petain? Should we be relieved he didn't write Mon cher Mitterand ...? How's Sarkozy taking all this? Oh!

Oh! Off the subject, sort of, yet not really.... DF, you made a comment some months back about Sarkozy's reviving the French-Muslim states grand strategery. I didn't really understand what you were referring to (thinking the French colonial empire in AFrica), but after reading the excellent book, EMPRIES OF THE SEA, one discovered that the French back door alliances with the Ottoman Empire absolutely undercut and infuriated the Pope in Rome and Philip of Spain in the European attempts to keep Sulieman from expanding the Ottoman Empire into Europe. Is this essentially the history you referred to? The gall of the gauls boasting the "Most CHirstian King" of France double-dealing with the Muslims as the rest of European Christendom was fighting?

Fascinaitng, if infuriating subject, and not at all presented in US studies of World History, so I assume more readers than me missed the references you mentioned.

Hey that's cool. I got a German flag for me. Wonder how that happened? Makes me seem .. Continental. Or dumb, if my cumputer is loaded with cookies that slave it to a German-drone port.

I want an avatar, but it has to be a well-worn tractor, and I don't know how to go about getting that stuck into my avatar space.

Nice to see you back Froggy! I had just about given up.

As for the *cough* Resident in the ummm White House...

There are even MORE Armed citizens than previously noted in this country and they (we) are getting quite alarmed at the changes occurring in our country. Hope may be broke, but true Americans are not!

We are watching closely.....

I pledge to give a swift kick in the pants to Ashton Kutcher, his cougar wife & anyone else in that stupid YouTube pledge video if they have the misfortune of running into me while I'm going through nicotene withdrawal. Just the thought of kicking their ass is so satisfactory it makes me want to follow it up with a cigarette. Okay, I need to think about something else besides smoking...

Privatei2, sounds like a very good use of one's time. A noble pledge. May I suggest either Nocona boots or Redwoing work shoes with steel tips for the occassion?

I had almost forgot about that dumb-ass "I pledge" video. So here's mine: I pledge to get a big, gas guzzling SUV. I pledge to put plastic in the glass recycling bin! I pledge to teach my daugher how to hunt furry animals.

What frosts me about that stupid vidoe, is what were all those numbskulls doing the last 8 years? Being bad parents? Crappy neighbors? Probably, because they are still doing it!
