The Lincoln Liar

The ever-worshipful sycophants of the 44th president of the United States rarely miss an opportunity to liken their clay-footed hero to the 16th, an apt comparison only if you judge both chief executives by their habitual disregard for the American Constitution and the rule of law — a custom increasingly popular, especially among the haughty left-wing elitists that masquerade as our intelligentsia. But while Dishonest Abe’s extra-legal actions were taken under the exigencies of war, Barry Obama’s are the direct result of a lifelong allegiance to a fundamentally alien ideology. The old Republican prairie lawyer who preserved the Union must be thrashing in his grave like a river cat in a fishing creel.

Obama, who claims never to compare himself to the Great Emancipator (since tingling Pavlovian liberals like Chrissy Matthews do it so well for him) will nonetheless deliver this year’s State of the Union address on Lincoln’s birthday a few weeks after being sworn in for a second term of office using Lincoln’s Bible.  Subtlety be damned. Let the peasantry draw its own conclusions.

It’s not surprising that even a second-rate Lincoln poseur like Barry would generate his very own secession movement.  After all, internal dissension is what this administration of left-wing zealots produces best.

The White House has responded to a handful of petitions calling for various states to be given the right to secede from the United States, calling for unity and participatory government instead.

Things can only get worse. The reasoning portion of America’s citizenry who cast their ballots for anyone not named Barack Obama will never compromise their fundamental principles — and the domestic enemies who control the modern Democratic Party don’t have any.

“An armed citizenry has always checked tyranny and the dictator’s lust for authority. Conversely, tyranny always hungers to disarm its citizens as soon as it assumes unbridled power. These are the immutable laws of empires and tyrants … We are in the midst of a constitutional crisis, unseen since the Civil War.” (Obama Provoking a Constitutional Crisis)

”…soap opera dramatics about fiscal “cliffs” and sequestration shouldn’t deflect from where President Obama is really taking this country.” (We’re now one step closer to America’s coming civil war)

“This isn’t a society stocking up on certain guns because they fear they may be banned. This is a society preparing for war.” (Something funny happened on the way to tyranny)

Tyranny Now” …Mr. Boehner deluded himself into believing he could craft a “grand bargain” with the president. The House speaker has fundamentally misjudged Mr. Obama. Mr. Boehner falsely thinks the president is a traditional Democrat. He isn’t. Mr. Obama is a radical progressive who seeks to transform America into a secular social democracy.” (The Republican surrender)

[…] There are over twenty-five million veterans in the United States … and most of them are gun owners. Some of them remember the horrors of the concentration camps and of communism. Others are from the Vietnam era and remember what awaited them when they came home. They see John Kerry, the same man who threw his medals over the White House fence and was photographed with Jane Fonda and the North Vietnamese, nominated as secretary of state. They remember … They have been spat at and vilified before, and now, with time running out for them, and the America that they knew seemingly fading away, many will say, “At one time, I was asked to write a check to my country for up to and including my life. Do I need to do it again?” (Dangerous Old Men)

Well, another car brand died today.  Ford announced that the Mercury brand will go to that show room in the sky in the fourth quarter of this year.   Here’s some coverage from Automobile Magazine.

According to Fields, the decision to cut Mercury was difficult considering the brand’s heritage, but an annual vehicle study put the final nail in the coffin. Mercury’s total market share was shown to be 0.8 percent and most Mercury buyers were cross-shopping – and transitioning to – Ford vehicles.

So, it was poor demand that did it.  That’s really no surprise to me.  Mercury hadn’t been marketed heavily, and the models showed little distinction from their Ford counterparts.  I never really had a connection to the brand, but as a tribute, here are some Mercury models of the past.

Mercury Cougar, cousin of the Mustang.

Mercury Turnpike Cruiser.  This one has the rear window that would open.

Mercury did some racing too.

Another Cyclone.

The 1980’s Capri was another Mustang clone.

Here is a Mercury Cougar as a Thunderbird Clone.
