Because They're Better Than We Are


Obama's zany side-kick informs us that his boss wants to bypass Congress and impose draconian gun control measures.

President Barack Obama on Thursday signed into a law a measure giving him, George W. Bush and future former presidents and their spouses lifetime Secret Service protection, the White House announced.

The thing to think about, before becoming emperor, is... do my guards like me. Well... do they, punk?

I haven't seen Zero pull back from a proposal so fast, ever. I think, whatever the real case, he and his got a response they simply didn't believe. I noticed my computer, the day I wrote a post on this, being scanned, hard... Artifacts and mouse problems as well, as a bit more proof.

I think the tally was more like 120 million militantly against, a few thousand, unarmed, moderately for his proposal. I wonder how many "tar and feather", "treason", "revolt", and other words and phrases they counted before their tabulator melted?

I keep remembering how the Praetorian Guard was bribed to murder Emperor Elagabalus (222 AD).

His grandmother, Julia Maesa, supplied the denarii to the Guards so her other grandson could ascend to the throne.

Doom - Oh those pesky guards! The Praetorian Guard was bribed to murder Emperor Elagabalus in 222 AD.

His grandmother, Julia Maesa, supplied the denarii to the Guards so her other grandson could ascend to the throne.

This was neither the first nor the last time the Guard was involved in such intrigue before Constantine disbanded them.
