    There is a reason he tried to outlaw nooses

      For Obama, we can offer him soft cotton rope instead of hemp. Make sure you use good rope. When Captain Kidd was hung for piracy, the first rope broke, and he had to be hung a second time. Afterward, his body was coated with tar, placed in an iron cage, and displayed on Execution Dock as a clear warning to those who would engage in piracy. It took three years for the body to decay, It became a saying among sailors that piracy was best avoided, so you didn’t “end up like Kidd.” For Obie, it would be a truly fitting legacy.

    Just a pithy comment on the SOTU speech. I’m beginning to think it was really the STFU speech to progtards as the adults are in charge again.

    And Obama should swing
    We’re gonna need more rope.

    • More rope? Recycle, be green. One rope should last a while.

    Speaking of faithful execution…

    I am a man of faith, and I do have a beautiful length of 1″ virgin manila, saved for over forty years since my time as a mill pipefitter, for some sunny day.

  • And I still say PPV for the hangings could CLEAR the national debt.

    Is anyone else tired of the tendency to hang the word “gate” after every supposed political scandal?

    Watergate was a watershed moment for the media as they managed to force a sitting president from office… Continuing to celebrate that by recycling the “gate” constantly gives them more credence than they deserve.

    As far as I’m concerned, the “gates” need to go… and don’t let the gate hit ya on the way out!!

    As much as I would like to see Obama and his assorted flunkies held accountable for their actions, I doubt such is likely to happen. The only judge they’ll even see is history… and I suspect history will give a severe and unforgiving sentence…

      “Gate” has been overused, mainly because “scandal” long ago lost its sting.

      When you have a TV series named “Scandal”, about DC, on the air for five years and the only thing that is really interesting about it is the beautiful Kerry Washington, I think you can safely assume that the word no longer carries the opprobrium it had back in the days of Warren G. Harding and Teapot Dome.

      (NB; The parallels between Teapot Dome and Uranium One are almost too close to miss, but somehow the media keep doing so.)

      “Scam” still has some sting, but it hasn’t been heard since “Abscam”, in which the FBI and Benjamin Civiletti, Carter’s second AG, set a honey trap for Republican legislators- and instead netted a fistful of avaricious and treasonous Democrats. Which I’m sure surprised nobody but Carter and his gang.

      It’s not so much that we need new words for such things as it is we need to no longer have people in Washington who think that not only is this “Business as Usual”, but also that this is the Right and Proper Way of Doing Things.

      Otherwise, this “scandal” will just fade away to be replaced by another. and those responsible will continue having their three-martini lunches, sucking on their bongs, screwing their interns, and treating the rest of us like dirt.

      I remember, back in the early ’90s, when G. Gordon Liddy was still on earthbound radio. He was royally pissed at the – even then – overuse of “…gate” tacked on to the end of the scandal du jure. Insisted that he had proprietary ownership: prison time being his deed to it, along with the “H2OGATE” license plate on his vehicle.

      Gates of Hell could apply. Not, Rodin’s.

  • Pete231

    Could someone please stand up on the floor of Congress and read aloud the definition of the word “sedition” for all to hear ? Seems the distinguished gentlemen and ladies have no concept of what “constitutes” that criminal enterprise. And broadcast that moment on nat’l TV in prime time……..

    • Bill G

      Alas, they’re too busy ignoring the fact that they’ve never passed a law against collusion.

    • MasterDiver

      Read them their Oath of Office as well. They need reminding exactly to what they are supposed to serve and bear true faith and allegiance.

    We have gone far from having Rule of Law in this nation.

    • nonncom

      The “Rule of law” is only used for you and me…..it is a tool to keep order among the masses….the elites, like hillery, are immune from the law…

    For the sake of the Republic all responsible must be held accountable.

  • Precision270

    For a nation of laws to remain a nation guided and constrained by laws, the laws must be enforced evenly and in a virtuous manner. When the political class breaks laws and their worst punishment is to be fired, yet retain their pension and ability to become a better paid lobbyist…we are no longer a nation of laws. Quadruple that when a non-political class person does the same thing and gets 10 years in prison…

  • Pamela

    Would slathering the miscreants in tuna and catnip oils, then tossing them in a locked room be considered cruel and unusual?

    • nonncom

      Are there any cats in the room?….

      • epilitimus

        Rats, large inner city, severely hungry rats. Though I hear large feral hogs work well too.

        Pamela, the only problem I see with your suggestion is they would probably get off on it.

        • Pamela

          I think the feral hogs and rats would be tearing off body pieces and thinking to themselves that they taste like tainted meat of an unknown origin.

    “…the elites, like hillery, are immune from the law…” Uh, no, they’re not immune.

    Karmic law is both subtle and harsh.

    *shrug*

    Libertarians spent the entire Bush administration warning the GOP and Dems alike that the surveillance state would not be restrainable and would be turned against them. Just like every other surveillance state in history.

    Maybe next time people will listen. Never create government power that you would want to see in the hands of your worst enemy. Eventually, they will be in control. And “Eventually” usually comes pretty quickly.
