a dictator. Federal/state jurisdictions involved. The GOP is just waiting for this. Now if a state of emergency is called and the governor calls for help, that's different.

President Obama likes to play God sometimes, just in order to annoy Sarah Palin



Sarah Palin: Not impeaching Barack Obama "affront to God", he "wants to play God"



Uploaded by PalinGrifter2012

Published on Jul 19, 2014

Sarah Palin said a lot of crazy things in her speech at the "Western Conservative Summit" at Colorado Christian University on July 19, 2014, but this is probably the craziest part. In other parts of the speech, she accused Obama to be a mobster and a murderer.

Please go to Patrick's article at the link below. It's got all of the dirt you forgot about Sarah:

Sarah Palin: Look, we know you are stupid and insane.

We know that you are a notorious rabble-rouser.

We know that you hate anyone who doesn't adore you.

We know that Democrats started to love you, because you have turned into their secret weapon.

There is a lot more we know about you...

We are now eagerly awaiting God's press release in this matter.

Report linked to the video:

'If he's not impeachable, no one is': Sarah Palin pounds Obama on immigration policy and compares him to a 'mob boss' who 'wants to play God'

Tuesday, Jul 29th 2014

* Former VP candidate blasts the president for 'dereliction of duty' in 'amnesty' plan
* 'There's only one remedy for a president who commits high crimes and misdemeanors, and it's impeachment'
* 'Gang-bangers and terrorists' are mixed in with children crossing the U.S.-Mexico border, she said; 'We're offering to take care of them'
* 'We had a revolution in 1776 because we don't do kings,' she shouted, saying Obama has made himself 'a ruler, not a president'
* Palin spoke to the Western Conservative Summit in Denver

Sorry for the source, but they're no worse than Palin and you won't have to listen to her voice:

But I see some desperation in this thread, so I kick.

Water is more essential to civilization then anything else and Michigan's not exactly a desert, huh.

GOP mismanagement and a unhealthy dose of racism are involved there. They want the poor displaced and don't care how they it gets done.

Not sure what you're expecting Obama himself to do -- what CAN he do?

And it's not "the American Government" not caring -- it's those who prevent the government from doing what's needed. And that's not Obama.

Seriously and sincerely, if you know what can be done, what can honestly be done, why don't you THINK it's being done?

And make no mistake, it does control Congress because even though the Dems have the majority in the Senate, the GOPers' use of the filibuster makes it impossible to get anything passed other than bills that benefit the 1%.

22. Obama For Ruler Of The Galaxy!

Daily Caller reporters' book delves into Obama lizard conspiracy



The truth is out there and it involves President Obama and the lizardmen.

In a new ebook, two reporters for The Daily Caller website stumble upon Obama's "intergalactic" ambitions.

From the Amazon.com book description of "The Lizard King: The Shocking Inside Account of Obama's True Intergalactic Ambitions by an Anonymous White House Staffer," by Jamie Weinstein and William Rahn:

"What if every farfetched conspiracy theory about Barack Obama turned out to be true? Two reporters for the The Daily Caller received an unsolicited manuscript in the mail, the diary of a former Obama administration political operative. What they read stunned them. "The Lizard King" describes a White House where the reality is more surreal, and comically bizarre, than anything its most fervent enemies have alleged. Tasked by David Axelrod with debunking right wing rumors about the president, the narrator embarks on a journey that takes him from Washington to Moscow to the tribal areas of Pakistan in search of the real Barack Obama. His findings leave him shocked, his political ideology in tatters and his understanding of the world forever changed."


http://www.politico.com/politico44/2012/09/daily-caller-reporters-book-delves-into-obama-lizard-135993.html

Please don't shoot the messenger. I'm just trying to find where Obama can find the power to do all of these things. It'd be pretty cool, I think!

a close store, a fire station, a police department and ask to fill your containers. About 5-10 gallons is plenty for one or two people for all your daily use.

How about the corporate entity the corrupt governor put in charge of the decimation of Detroit?

What did they tell you? Share with us, please.

The president is doing something GOOD here. But, as usual, it's not enough for the haters sonwe have to change the subject.

They seem to agree with the Shrub's "It'd be a lot easier if this were a dictatorship, so long as I'm the dictator."

Obama can't just "turn on the water". He can't just order mayors to do things. He can't just pass laws and appropriate funding on his own without Congress. Nor would I ever want him to be able to do so.
