DUTY TO THE PEOPLE, IS DUTY TO GOD!
Obamas’s Poisonous Fruit: Nicaragua's Ortega Nullifies Constitutional Law, Paves Way for Dictator for Life
Nicaragua, Opposition Groups unite against Ortega's Coup on the Constitution
Why don't the Nicaraguans just kill that bastard Ortega! Solve the damn problem now. Storm the residence, take him out and give him a 9mm brain hemorrhage.
Then tell the remaining socialists that's what will happen to them if they try to f*ck with the constitution.
That seems to be the only kind of action those moronic latino dictators understand anyway.
This is a perfect example of treating the Constitution as if it were a "living document". These lawyers, judges and Dictators are more than happy to kill it and it's intended meaning.
Judging the Constitution to be Un-Constitutional!!! Another Legal precedent!! Let's not forget that Obama is a renowned Constitutional lawyer.
Alas, Nicaragua and the USSA under Dear Leader are one in the same. We are closer to a hemispheric utopia than ever.
Before the gods, people worshiped the trees, and the rocks and other forms of nature. And, then, we lost our way, but now, we have returned, to that old-time religion, the religion of Mother Green. The Messiah has come, duty to the Messiah is duty to Mother Green - thus, we say Go Green, Go Green.
And, not so long ago, there was an omen, a message, embedded in a Kapitalist Television Commercial. And, so many of us heard her call, the call of Mother Nature:
Amen to all of the above.
Today, I had the priviledge of being at the commissioning of a brand new amphibious assault ship, the USS Makin Island, in San Diego. It was TRULY glorious. As the cannons fired off, the fighter jets flew over, and the helicopters whirled overhead, I felt such deep pride and hope for our nation. The dress white uniforms, the red, white and blue banners, and the Marine Corps Band playing our finest patriotic hymns gave me goosebumps. Our military IS the finest in the world. (I am getting to my point...)
Living in an area where there are several marine corps/naval bases, I meet and live close to men and woman in our military that have a strong respect for the Constitution of the United States of America. As I was reading your comments above, I was thinking about how much more dismal our situation would be right now if our military was uncaring about their vow to protect the Constitution. Thank God, many of them do care...and are deeply committed.
If we have one thing going for us, amidst this insanity going on in Nicaragua (with the help of their White House buddies), it is our military...hopefully.
The USS Makin Island is the second ship to bear that name. The first one had part in the engagements in Okinawa and Iwo Jima during World War II. I happened to meet one of the few ORIGINAL USS Makin Island crew members while I was standing in line to see the ship. He was making his way over to another old gentleman to see if he knew him. These old men are a living monument to the courage and respect our military has for our great nation and all it stands for...especially the Constitution.
I couldn't help thinking about how miserable Obama would have been at that ceremony....I was imagining him gritting his teeth and fuming inside. It was the epitome of everything he hates about America.
As a matter of fact, in the middle of the ceremony, the sound system cut out completely, which is rare that ANYTHING embarassing would go wrong in the military like that, and I was pretty sure that Obama was there in spirit...
Casserole Czar, as a military vet, it strikes me that what happened with the sound system is quite routine--in fact, the military even has a well known acronym to describe it.
Which is not to say someone wouldn't have been selected for immediate reassignment to some remote radar station in the Aleutians, had it happened while Obama was blowing more of his teleprompted hot air.
Off: I had never read the origin of SNAFU before! Love it! Thank you.
And thank you for your service! Everything we enjoy in America, from going to football games and drinking our favorite beverage, to to our very lives and freedoms are owed to people like you.
I do have the military on a serious pedestal, but I can see how the RED tape, SNAFU's and politics get ridiculous at times!
Do you think that the military in general is comitted to protecting the Constitution, or are they more duty bound to serve the Commie in Chief?
Comrade Casserole, In the peoples WYSIWYG where you type in your message there are many visual devices, get to know them you award winning prole you...
Quote:"I , do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same. So help me God."
I'm trying to find the right words here. . .
It makes me sick when people use religion to justify themselves, when what they are doing has either nothing to do with religion, or they are using it in the completely wrong context.
LeninkaAlas, Nicaragua and the USSA under Dear Leader are one in the same. We are closer to a hemispheric utopia than ever.
Pretty much sums it up right there.
Quote:I, (NAME), do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed over me, according to regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice. So help me God.
Basically, allegiance to the Constitution and POTUS are one and the same, regardless of who occupies the latter position. The military isn't more duty bound to one over the other.
The Left did their utmost to separate the two during the Bush years, hence you saw stories in the MSM that were sympathetic to a few military malcontents who "questioned" their mission in Iraq and felt they'd been screwed because they only enlisted to get money for college, etc. You don't see those stories now.
Pinkie, Yes that's the oath for enlistment but this is the oath for commissioned officers:
Quote:"I, _____ (SSAN), having been appointed an officer in the Army of the United States, as indicated above in the grade of _____ do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign or domestic, that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservations or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office upon which I am about to enter; So help me God." (DA Form 71, 1 August 1959, for officers.)
And I beg to differ that the allegiances described in the wording in the enlistment oath say anything other than what it says. An oath on what to defend, and an oath on who to take orders from based on a reference to a third code. Saying it's one and the same is like saying the brain of the jackass is the same as the ass.
Ahhhh... Donkey Dung!
Sure, they can operate their campaign with just volunteers, but we know it is better to take a more, shall we say, forceful approach while achieving our aims. That way nobody misses out on a "common experience," especially one so pleasurable as the revolution.
Off and feeling blonde: (just a litle PC humor there...) Can't figure out the 'prog off' cube yet...I'm sure it's right in front of my eyes...
Red Rooster: Will do. I will conquer the use of visual effects soon! Even though my ability with computers is like only knowing how to use a toaster in the kitchen (sorry, to you "toaster-only" users).
Commissarka Pinkie: Good to hear your discussion with Red Rooster. Thanks for the info about the oaths. I do see how the two entities are the same. It's probably nothing new for the two to seem conflicting, especially during war time.
Aha! With the help of a certain comrade, I have conquered my first obstacle in using visual aids...the only way is up for me!
Toaster Rooster: The kommunity kitchen offers a wide range of cooking classes: Toasted beets, toasted potatoes, toasted dissenters, and more.
Now make sure your little socialists read all their books Comrade Casserole...
..we need good little proles for the Americorps
Speaking of good little socialists...last year my lil' beets were lucky enough to be under the tutelage of a Party instructor. She proudly displayed her, "I voted for Obama" sticker on her desk. And made sure that the children knew how to write a letter to POTUS, telling him what they would like his administration to accomplish...
Since I had to help the tiny tots with their homework, I reminded them that the school was in need of new playground equipment and that it was surely the federal government's job to provide this.
