Hey Brown Shirts, how’s that Hope and Change working out for you?

Updated on June 28, 2011

Just three and a half short years ago young voters were proudly sporting their brown shirts as their predecessors did those 70 years ago and marched, chanted, registered and even fainted as their new 21 century Furor was emerging. Elect Barrack Hussein Obama; even the name was cool, and the tides will subside; the hungry will be fed; ancient enemies will lay down their arms and hug each other and America will be once again respected throughout the world community; especially within that august body known as the UN!

As the result of these modern day Brown Shirt activists older Americans have watched as their hopes and dreams for a secure retirement slowly evaporated before their eyes. Many are faced with countless more years of work thanks to the policies of this Socialist Regime which have devastated the economy! Looming on the horizon is yet another stock market crash and the possibility of new tax increases if the Supreme Minister of these adoring minions has his way.

So how have the Brown Shirts fared under Mr. Hope and Change? Most recent college grads dreamed of driving flashy cars, dressing in all the latest fashions, and living the good life complete with a plush apartment along with frequent visits to nightclubs and fancy restaurants, well it hasn’t worked out so well. Most after working hard for Barrack Hussein Obama then flaunted his election in the face of their conservative older relatives who had basically contributed to their support all these years, well it’s come back to haunt them.

Most of these Brown Shirts are without that great job; 9.1% admitted unemployment; 16.7% actual unemployment translates into little or no entry level jobs. Sorry Brown Shirts don’t blame Bush, Mr. Hope and Change’s Policies are responsible for this! So what do they do; most are now requesting financial assistance from those same older relatives they so willingly taunted just a few years back when Mr. Majestic was elected. If that assistance isn’t possible a large percentage have moved back home and mom is once again washing and ironing their Brown Shirt so they can continue to go forth into the world and spout their Platitudes!

What some of the more inventive parents are doing is empowering their own Brown Shirts. These same life-long, wage-earning tax payers who have worked hard and were looking forward to retiring soon are forced to wait and listen to the ongoing debate in which they are being cast as greedy for wanting to keep their hard earned money instead of allowing it to be confiscated and given to other people. Now they are being forced to cut back on many personal expenses. Small businesses are now faced with the difficult decision of having to lay off wonderful people who have worked for them over long periods of time. These same individuals no longer have the extra income to help out their struggling relatives because the one these same struggling relatives worked so hard to have elected is the one who has enacted policies which are directed at confiscating their wealth!

As for the real engine that drives the economy Small Business, well the Brown Shirt’s Champion has seen to it through all the new government mandated taxes that go along with having employees they won’t be hiring for quite some time; at least until after the 2012 elections when we see if the Regime will be replaced. Most small business have learned to do more with fewer employees; pressing family members into service or working shorter work weeks in order to survive!

What Some of the more astute Brown Shirts are realizing is because of their most recent efforts in the political arena, all the money some of their more financially prosperous conservative relatives were able and willing to send their way so they could enjoy the finer things in life like a college education is now being extorted by the Messiah in the name of helping other people! Yes We Can-Yes We Can!

I wonder if any of these young guns have figured it out by now or will they put on their Brown Shirts and once again work just as hard for the Charlatan from Kenya in 2012. Will they once again argue with their parents and grandparents telling them how foolish it is to vote Republican or have at least enough of them awakened to the reality of how destructive Mr. Hope and Change has been for them as well as the rest of the country; only time will tell!

      Once again, you have no idea what I have invested in America. It is this incredibly shallow view of the rest of the planet that leaves Americans blind.

      I've spent more than twenty years investing in America, even with my own blood, sweat and tears as a conservative, only to discover...right wing dogmatism only leaves the blind leading the blind.

      Have a good day--but your judgmental comments have been enough--my duty is to try to help those who have lost their vision see a different way, a better way, a generous way where people actually care for one another. Keep your partisan patriotic bliss--enjoy your delusion--but don't look for any answers from the center--that would be foolish.

      First off I just had to click on your icon to see from which of our 57 states (a little Obama Geography for you) you were from and SHAZAM, you aren’t from this country at all you’re from British Columbia which explains your Socialism Slant! I gotta say though the last Socialist I debated from Great Britain was a much friendlier chap, his name was Charles James and he actually had a brain; misguided but a very nice fellow. I suggest you visit my inside the mind of a Socialist Blog which Charles and I participated together and garnered quite a fan base!

      I’m going to jump out of order here and deal with your: “I am a centrist liberal, but that allows me to talk to people that still don't know what it means to walk softly and carry a big stick.” You started off by pretending not to be affiliated with either party but a Liberal by any other name; whether he claims to be a Socialist or a Liberal or a Progressive or now a Centrist is still nothing more than a Socialist who is out to punish the successful and redistribute their wealth. As for carrying a big stick; PLA-EEEEEEEEEEASEEEEEEEE; you guys never support carrying any stick at all unless your guy is in the White House. The Supreme Commander Obama himself railed against Iraq and Afghanistan; he was going to shut down Gitmo; do away with the Patriot Act; put those Patriot CIA officers on trial for Waterboarding on so on and so on a shoobie doobie doobie, now look at him pretending to be Commander and Chief after the Navy Seals killed Bin Laden!

      As for feeling better I’ll feel better once this Pretender N Chief is out of the White House; as for hanging on to my Republican ways you’re damned right I will cling to them just as I cling to my Guns and Religion which of course Socialist like yourselves have no need for. Remember that other Great Socialist Leader disarmed Nazi Germany as he was taking it over. By the way does your Brown Shirt still fit?

      You couldn’t be further off base with your “Freedom of Religion is a right in America. And that religion doesn't have to be a Judeo-Christian-based bin of charlatans. It can be any religion--because America is about freedom--it's only the moral minority of cross-waving freaks that thinks this means...Jesus loves me, this I know...bla bla bla.” Crap. It’s the Judeo Christian Community that has had their icons submerged in urine, their Nativity Scenes Removed from Christmas Displays; by the way have you ever looked at the word CHRIST-mas; wow even you might get this one! Had their Valedictorians told they couldn’t mention their faith while giving their speeches at commencement ceremonies; had prayer banned before sporting events! All the while your much beloved Muslims threaten anyone who even dares to publish a cartoon regarding Mohammed. You my friend like most other Socialist despise Christianity because it is now and always has been the single biggest impediment to the implementation of Socialism!

      You will criticize what you refer to as wannabes like Palin and Bachmann but will blindly support the biggest Wannabe of them all, Barrack Hussein Obama; he wants to be president but he is vastly unqualified for the job; remove his teleprompter and you’re left with a babbling idiot. Unlike his predecessor; I referring to his predecessor in the Community Organizer Arena because that’s the only job he ever held, his predecessor Jesse Jackson he can’t even Rhyme on his own!

      It kills all you Socialists, every time a Conservative like Palin, Sean Hannity, Rush, Ann Coulter and on and on and on come out with a book it immediately shoots to the top of the New York Times Best Seller List yet when some Socialist like your Messiah, Barrack Hussein Obama plagiarizes Reverend Wrights Sermons and publishes them such as was the case with his Audacity Book it dwells in the gutter until finally removed from the list!

      I take offense to someone not from this country characterizing those that support Palin or any other candidate as “god-fearing', gun-toting' hicks that claim some sort of right from the founding fathers.” The Founding Fathers founded the United States of America; the greatest nation God ever inspired mankind to create and it has save the world many times over from Socialist Aggressors; as I recall we even saved your mother country from Mr. Brown Shirt Himself but you can thank me and all my Gun Toting God Fearing friends later!

      Bachmann can't figure out history, huuuuuuuum can I add Obama can’t figure out Grography, let’s see didn’t he say he had been in 57 of the states so far while on the campaign trail. But in typical Liberal fashion you attack characteristics instead of dealing with substance or in your guy’s cas a Lack-There-Of! By the way I didn’t think you believed in all that soul stuff?

      I'd vote for Romney or any other American born Mormon, Christian, Jew or whateve3r as long as they were a Republican. You see Democrats are all the same whatever their so called religion; they are Socialist out to disarm the country and redistribute its’ wealth!

      Friend; and I assure you I use the term loosely, I’m from the Deep South and I would vote for Herman Cain or any other solid Black Conservative tomorrow! It’s Liberals such as yourself that are racists; unless the black person in question is in your Liberal Camp you guys attempt to destroy him or her. I give you as examples Clarence Thomas and Condoleezza Rice

      As for patriotism not winning any medals on a global stage; all great people and countries have been envied by the rest of the world but let any country find itself in need and look who they turn to immediately; the good old US of A. So smugly sit in your socialist chair and dream of a world wher wealth is redistributed; everyone runs around in their very own neatly starch Brown Shirt while spying on their neighbors and the absolute power is held in the hallowed halls of a benevolent government that provides for the needs of all while confiscating the wealth of a few!

      Good for the am I blaming the wealthy? Where is the freakin' logic here.

      What is the problem? No intelligence in matters of financial responsibility--who spent all of America's money? Obama wasn't even in the vicinity of notoriety, folks.

      I don't have a problem with Obama--some bad decisions in starting the healthcare debacle at the wrong time--but when would it have been a good time? Ryan's plan look better for y'all?

      What of a "campaign that never ended?" You mean Sarah Palin's constant media blitz? C'mon people. And you criticize Obama for going to "cronies?" What like Dick Cheney isn't a crony?

      Enjoy your Republican mythologies, but I just can't inhale the stench--Bachmann has a huge treasure chest for her she's qualified to run a country? She can't even control her eyes, ears and mouth.

      Facts, people, just the facts. Glass houses are what we all live in and at this point Obama's been playing from the ER--trying to stop the flow of blood that Bush left the patient called America suffering from.

      How is it you blame the new guy on the block?

      Wow! I wonder what randslam thinks about Obama bombing Libya. As for his campaign-that-never-ended, now he and the randslams of the world BLAME millionaires and billionaires! Which is such a joke because those are the cronies they go to for campaign funds. What is it Obama wants this time, a billion for his run?

    • randslam profile image

      Rand Zacharias 6 years ago from Kelowna, British Columbia

      Froggie, you sound like Fox News, believing your own press. There is a silent middle out there that carries more power than many know.

      I wouldn't worry so much about the next election, but rather, how partisan politics can actually be established to create a cooperative engine--oooh, might have to start 'socializing' with the enemy and working to some sort of solutions.

      I do think you might be right, Froggie, but not for the same reasons. I don't think Obama wants the position anymore--he realizes the futility of working with a bunch of pathological, bill-stopping liars (GOP senate) that don't want anything but power--at whatever cost.

      Rand Zacharias 6 years ago from Kelowna, British Columbia

      Nice rant. Hope that helped you feel better about your silliness, but if you want to hang on to your Republican ways--that is your right.

      Freedom of Religion is a right in America. And that religion doesn't have to be a Judeo-Christian-based bin of charlatans. It can be any religion--because America is about freedom--it's only the moral minority of cross-waving freaks that thinks this means...Jesus loves me, this I know...bla bla bla.

      Freedom of Speech is a right in America.

      I'll continue criticizing wannabes like Palin and Bachmann until I see some kind of semblance of intelligence--however, that just isn't going to happen.

      Palin has a new film out called "The Undefeated," I laugh just typing it--she lost her first run at a federal election--She's in De-nial of de facts, de dictionary and de truth--much like most god-fearin', gun-totin' hicks that claim some sort of right from the founding fathers.

      Bachmann can't figure out history, period. If the eyes are the windows to the soul--Bachmann vision is messed up--watch her--she's nuts.

      I'd give Romney a chance, but America won't--he's Mormon.

      I wasn't pulling the racist card, it is what it is--I've got enough contact with the deep south to realize--America isn't as pragmatic about race as many would like to believe.

      I am a centrist liberal, but that allows me to talk to people that still don't know what it means to walk softly and carry a big stick.

      As for your disrespect of empire runs without the use of socialized I might read your hub...but I'll probably just laugh at it.

      Have a good day, oh and being patriotic isn't going to win you any medals on a global stage--enjoy your nationalistic pride--it leaves the rest of the world out of your grasp--but of course that would be what any isolationist crony of right wing restraint would want.

      Where to begin; there is so much left wing irrelevant garbage here it is very difficult to wade through the plethora of Platitudes and find a beginning but here goes; sir if you’ve owned several businesses as claimed then you by your self professed positions were doomed to failure with each endeavor. Anyone who has truly owned his own business or worked in a management position would be as outraged as myself and the Frog are at this current Regime. If you were truly an aspiring entrepreneur then you would be climbing to the rooftops and crying out against what this Socialist Regime is doing to this country. You my friend are no entrepreneur for entrepreneurs are not in favor of redistribution!

      Next by your slam of Christianity you must be either a Muslim or an Atheist. Lest you forget, which all you left wing loonies do on a regular basis; this country was founded on Judeo Christian Principles and the fact we now live in a world where anti Christian anti Jewish sentiment seems to be popular amongst the vermin such as yourself which infest our country and attempt to destroy it from within does not make it right. Without so called Republican aggression nothing would ever get done; your so called Republican aggression is the essence of American Exceptionalism! If you are alluding in your statement “…created the terrorist plague--which, of course, doesn't pose any real threat to America, anyway” that the War on Terror isn’t real then you sir are too delusional to continue this debate but I will do so in hopes of somehow turning on a light bulb that has been without electricity for apparently some time now!

      I was waiting for your attack on George W. Bush; the only problem I have with his eight years is the protective web he successfully spun around this country not only protected the patriotic Americans such as the Frog and I but unfortunately provided the same protection for Hate America First Comrades such as yourself. But then again it was only a matter of time before you mentioned his name; that’s Democratic Playbook argument number 7 or 8 isn’t it; blame Bush; trash Bush. After all he’s the dope that said; "Over the last 15 months, we've traveled to every corner of the United States. I've now been in 57 states? I think one left to go;" NO WAIT THAT WAS OBAMA; well Bush was the one that mispronounced Navy Corpsman calling Christian Broussard Navy Corpse Man Christian Broussard; no wait that was Obama; huuuuuum there seems to be a pattern here. As for the bedraggled developing nations that Bush attacked; wasn’t it proven that the Taliban had given safe haven to al Qaeda in Afghanistan before 911 and that same al qaeda were proven to be responsible for the attack on America on 911? Oh but Bush attacked Iraq you were about to smugly say; well my new found friend; from as far back as Bill Clinton; the darling of the left everyone was clamoring about Sadam Hussein’s weapons of mass destruction including John Kerry who by the way served in Vietnam. Then after 27 failed UN Resolutions which allowed Sadam 3 plus years to dispose of or hide his stash Bush finally wielded that Big Stick you referred to and what do Liberals like yourself do, whine about it!

      What I smell here my friend is a Rotten Stinking Varmint that claims to be an American. If you were truly and American you would be as outraged with what this Socialist Regime is doing to this country as I am!

      Where do you come off mocking Bachmann, Palin and Romney; lest I remind you your so called President was nothing more than a Community Organizer; a disciple of Saul Alinsky and Reverend Wright. He’s no better that having Al Sharpton in the Oval Office except he can read a teleprompter better than Sharpton; that’s right Sharpton doesn’t need one!

      As for your I'll stay as a centrist, as the right is wrong and the left is chaotic--there is a middle ground; remark; excuse me while I puke. You are no more of a centrist than Karl Marx was a Capitalist. You are firmly entrenched in the camp of the left; after all you’ve just spouted their entire list of talking points.

      Thanks God; oh that’s right you don’t believe in him; we on the right have such enlightened sould as yourself to save us from our; how did you say it …”being opinionated incorrectly and unwilling to change for the right reasons is insanity”. If you represent reason then I’ll gladly cling to my insanity just as I cling to my guns and Religion!

      Thank God you finally got to your Racism Charge. I was about to be sorely disappointed until I read your last paragraph and there it was. Well, no sir it is not that Barrack Hussein Obama is Black that I disrespect him; I happen to disrespect all Socialist. But for a more in-depth explanation I suggest you read my Socialism comes in all Colors Hub!

      randslam - Respect is earned, not granted by any position and has nothing to do with the color of one's skin. I wonder when you'd pull out the old race card. Typical liberal.

    • randslam profile image

      Rand Zacharias 6 years ago from Kelowna, British Columbia

      I've owned several of my own businesses, I only ever joined one union and dropped that position after a year and a half. I'm an entrepreneur and believe in pulling one's own weight...the problem I have with right-wing rhetoric is it's complete fabrication of success.

      It isn't through Republican aggression that anything gets done--these are the "Christian Soldiers" that think some god is directing their self-righteous path to destiny that created the terrorist plague--which, of course, doesn't pose any real threat to America, anyway.

      I have never seen so much fear in a country that had it all and just threw it away. "Walk softly, but carry a big stick." A slogan that America use to live by--was the right motto.

      America still has a "big stick," however, beating up a couple of bedraggled developing nations all in the name of an event that wasn't produced by attacked countries is just as asinine as W. Bush himself.

      Pull your gun-totin' head out of your ass and smell reality. it's a global economy, American-led, but definitely global, and if America doesn't want to produce better results and just continue popping into wars, or police actions, around the planet for no real reason--have at 'er. Just don't expect and respect.

      Honestly, Bachmann, Palin, Romney are the candidates for the Republican 'juggernaut?'

      I'll stay as a centrist, as the right is wrong and the left is chaotic--there is a middle ground.

      At any rate, I enjoyed seeing the quick right-wing standard responses, the 'you never owned a business' rhetoric and the name, enjoy your own opinion...just realize that being opinionated incorrectly and unwilling to change for the right reasons is insanity.

      I will say, respect for the office of Commander in Chief doesn't seem to be as important when that Chief is a black individual--and that annoys me. The office is to be respected and I don't see any respect offered by right-wing racist pundits. This is another thing that America hasn't learned.

      The thing about the Hollywood Left is they never donate their money; they always donate "Their So Called Celebrity"; the money always comes from those that call in just to speak with the DOPES!

      You are sooooo correct in your assesment of Obama in the War Room the night the Navy Seals got Bin Laden; he looked like the Pathetic Imposter he is!

      The most frustrating thing I can think of is that Obama's supporters simply refuse to face the facts. This president hasn't done a thing I can point to and say "job well done." As for Bin Laden, I don't believe he had a choice. That picture of Obama and the General was very telling. The General was at the head of the table and Obama was crouched in the corner. He is not a leader, but he is a fraud. The facts which are available for all tell the truth.I have come to the conclusion that those on the left who have tons of money (hollywood) don't care about redistribution of wealth because their wealth is enormous. For others who don't care to work for a living I suppose it sounds like a great angry free ride on the backs of hardworking Americans. Up and awesome, Patriot.

      Warmongering huh? How many wars has your Messiah, Oblabber Mouth, got on his resume? You need to wake up to reality and stop reading all that left wing garbage. Try studying some American history. I think you mat have either been asleep or they dumbed you down.

      You are new so first of all thanks for stopping in. I’m sure you can’t wrap your head around the concept of defending ourselves; remember a small event known as 911? I believe it took place on American soil and we were not the aggressors. So if defending yourself is warmongering I guess we are guilty as charged.

      If you believe deregulation got us here then you have had way too much of the kool aid to even try to explain the root of the problem to. If by chance you are interested I suggest you visit my previous hub “eight years of unbridled capitalism” in which I explain in detail what brought us to this point. But like most Liberals you probably aren’t interested in actual facts, just spouting Democratic Talking Points!

      As for production to once again occur on America’s real estate another wing of your party’s contributors must be reigned in, the Trial Lawyers. It was a combination of higher taxes coupled with frivolous law suits which drove production overseas.

      The so called right-wing of America to which I proudly belong has no such blind spot. America has always fought for the right causes; it’s just I don’t believe Redistribution of Wealth is the Right Cause!

      As for this Charlatan N Chief killing Bin Laden; this was one of those in spite of him events. He had done everything possible to thwart the mission including having his Attorney General re-open the investigations on the CIA officers responsible for extracting the information by which Bin Laden was located and now he wants to stand before the nation and pound his chest saying look at what Me, Myself and I did; Please Give Me A Break!

      This so called President is not about leading he is about following; he said so himself he doesn’t believe in American Exceptionalism!

      I don't understand your symbolic brown shirt representation when the warmongering Republicans are the manipulators that got us here.

      Socialism isn't what brought the unemployment issues in America--it was de-regulation--starting with none other than Ronald Reagan.

      For America to rise as a phoenix--production will once more have to occur on her real estate. Jobs, jobs, jobs will have to be created that actually support a quality of life--unlike the salaries of WalMart.

      Why does the right-wing of America not see? Why this huge blind spot? What happened to the America that fought for the right causes?

      I don't know that blaming a new president who actually had the chief terrorist caught and killed is the man to blame--for there are many mistakes that the Bush gov't made--the worst of which was spending all of America's wealth on foolish wars abroad. Fighting "away games" is not an American specialty.

      Should have protected the homeland, and created better products for the world--lead by example--not by the sword.

      I think it's a miracle that I found a sentence in your blog with which I concur but since I believe in miracles, I will just say that I agree with you that "the real engine that drives the economy" is "Small Business". If you want small business to succeed then, stop shopping at Wall-Mart, buy your coffee from a local coffee shop owner who is not part of the corporate system, buy local meet, local vegetables, fruits, etc. Refrain from buying anything from China too - check your shoes: where are they made? If you're American - buy American made!

      It's up to us, the consumers if small business will still exists in a decade or if we sell our souls to Wall-Mart.
