    I’d say about a 3… There would have to be mass arrests, curfews and a deceleration of martial law before most people would notice

    And the TV would have to stop showing repeats of Honey Boo Boo!

    I wonder if this was reported in the US? Sometimes you have to be half a world away before you realise what is happening

    On a scale of 1 to 10, (ten being the highest level of probability)…How likely it is that Obama will use Executive Orders to disarm all American Citizens?

    I going on record by predicting the highest level of probability. It’s a 10!

    From your link
    “Right now you can be on the terrorist watch list, you can be prevented from boarding an aeroplane, but you can go down the street and buy a semiautomatic assault weapon.”
    ____
    Either this reflects another breakdown of big
    governments ability to coordinate,
    or that “terrorist watch list” now reflects the ideology of those in charge of it.
    http://www.theblaze.com/stories/homeland-security-funded-study-lists-people-reverent-of-individual-liberty-as-extreme-right-wing-terrorists/
    The study says right-wing extremists are “groups that believe that one’s personal and/or national ‘way of life’ is under attack and is either already lost or that the threat is imminent.”

    Further, right-wing extremist groups “believe in the need to be prepared” by taking part in “paramilitary preparations and training or survivalism.” Groups may also be “fiercely nationalistic” and “suspicious of centralized federal authority.”

    Right-wing extremism also involves a belief in “conspiracy theories that involve grave threat to national sovereignty and/or personal liberty,” the study claims.

    Interestingly, in an oversight that is not explained, the report barely mentions radical Islam. Instead the study lumps religious terrorist groups into one category and describes them as “groups that seen to smite the purported enemies of God and other evildoers, impose strict religious tenants or laws on society (fundamentalists), forcibly insert religion into the political sphere.”

    BTW, the same website that provides the poster at the top of this thread also operates a forum for discussing all things guns. http://www.gunrightsmedia.com/ It is an informative place to discuss and get more information. (It is, however, much less fun than Moonbattery.com).

    Another article on the decline of Detroit. Oddly enough, I couldn’t find mention of the fact that the city has been under democrat control for the past 90 years. But I’m sure that has nothing to do with its decline.

    Barack Hussein Obama apprecites the poor and middle working class for their contribution of more of their fair share in taxes this year. What? You liberals who voted for B’nack thought just the eeevill rich were going to pay more. Sorry, suckers – you’ll see less on your first paychecks:

    Employee Social Security Tax Rate Returns to 6.2%
    The reduced 4.2% rate for employee Social Security taxes that was in effect for 2011 and 2012 has
    expired. The employee Social Security tax rate will return to 6.2% for 2013 wages up to the taxable wage
    limit of $113,700. Consequently, employees’ net pay under the taxable wage limit will decrease
    accordingly. The maximum Social Security tax that an employee would pay will be $7,049.40 for 2013.

    That’s an extra $2,274 to Barack and Mooshelle for someone earning $113,700.
    Among the households facing higher taxes, the average increase would be $1,635, the policy center said,” according to a Bloomberg News article.

    One stunned libtard quipped:

    “What happened that my Social Security withholding’s in my paycheck just went up?” a poster wrote on the liberal site DemocraticUnderground.com. “My paycheck just went down by an amount that I don’t feel comfortable with. I guarantee this decrease is gonna’ hurt me more than the increase in income taxes will hurt those making over 400 grand. What happened?”

    Shocker. Democrats who supported the president’s re-election just had NO idea that his steadfast pledge to raise taxes meant that he was really going to raise taxes. They thought he planned to just hit those filthy “1 percenters,” you know, the ones who earned fortunes through their inventiveness and hard work. They thought the free ride would continue forever. ***

    “Really, how am I ever supposed to pay off my student loans if my already small paycheck keeps getting smaller? Help a sister out, Obama,” wrote “Meet Virginia.” “Nancy Thongkham” was much more furious. “F***ing Obama! F*** you! This taking out more taxes s*** better f***ing help me out!! Very upset to see my paycheck less today!”

    “_Alex™” sounded bummed. “Obama I did not vote for you so you can take away alot of money from my checks.” Christian Dixon seemed crestfallen. “I’m starting to regret voting for Obama.” But “Dave” got his dander up over the tax hike: “Obama is the biggest f***ing liar in the world. Why the f*** did I vote for him”?

    Of course, dozens of posters on DemocraticUnderground sought to blame it all (as usual) on President George W. Bush. “Your taxes went up because the leaders need to dig us out of this criminal deficit hole we are in which has been caused because taxes were too low during the Bush years. Everyone has to help by spreading the wealth around a little. Power to the correct people!” posted “Orinoco.”

    ***

    Hilariously, the tax burden will rise more for someone making $30,000 a year (1.7 percent) than it does for someone earning $500,000 annually (1.3 percent).

    A whole new wave of Obama supporters still don’t even know: They’ll get their first 2013 paychecks on the 15th of the month. So when you’re shooting the breeze in the lunchroom with your grumbling co-workers on the 16th, just ask them, “Who’d you vote for in November?” When they say Mr. Obama, just tell them: “Well, you got what you voted for. You did know he was going to raise taxes, right?”

    The looks on their faces will be priceless.

    Middle class Obama voters, get used to paying your fair share, because Obama and Democraps say they want even more tax increases. Besides, they need more of your hard earned money, honey, after the Obama’s $7 million Hawaiian vacation.

    As Bnack said in 2009 “Everyone must sacrifice… Everyone must have some skin in the game.”

    Well… Everyone but His Royal Highness Barack and Queen Mooshelle.

    Having fun yet liberals?

    Democraps can’t wait to get their slimy, greedy little hands on more of your hard-earned money to pass out to their favored interests. Unfortunately, RINO’s are right there with them. I’m pro-abortion for the whole lot of these federal government fetal pigs.

    Sometimes, watching a Democrat learn something is wonderful.

    It’s just unfortunate they get to take the rest of us along for the ride.

    “What happened that my Social Security withholding’s in my paycheck just went up?” a poster wrote on the liberal site DemocraticUnderground.com. “My paycheck just went down by an amount that I don’t feel comfortable with. I guarantee this decrease is gonna’ hurt me more than the increase in income taxes will hurt those making over 400 grand. What happened?”

    I’ll tell you what happened. You keep voting for tax-and-spend liberal lunatics like Obama, Reid and Pelosi, to name three of the worst.

    You get what you ask for then you complain? Talk to the hand!

    Democrats who supported the president’s re-election just had NO idea that his steadfast pledge to raise taxes meant that he was really going to raise taxes. They thought he planned to just hit those filthy “1 percenters,” you know, the ones who earned fortunes through their inventiveness and hard work. They thought the free ride would continue forever.
    So this week, as taxes went up for millions of Americans — which Republicans predicted throughout the campaign would happen — it was fun to watch the agoggery of the left.

    What to do on a date in San Francisco?

    San Francisco police searched Sunday for a man suspected of throwing a flammable liquid at his girlfriend and severely burning her.
    Officer Carlos Manfredi said witnesses in the city’s Bayview District reported hearing the woman screaming. She was taken to a hospital burn unit with life-threatening injuries.
    Investigators believe her attacker was 22-year-old Dexter Oliver.
    Manfredi said Oliver had a “dating relationship” with the woman, but he did not know the circumstances that led to the attack.

    Wow, some cultures have odd dating rituals…

    Global warming, the tool of the West

    A twisted take, to be sure, but it has some elements of truth to it – particularly the part about Catastrophic Anthropogenic Climate Change Alarmism being nonsense.

    Amongst the newest claims of pending disasters, is a cry that icepacks are now melting at three times the rate of the 1990s, even though there has not been any significant warming in the past 20 years. Greenland’s icepack melt off, has been linked to volcanic activity under the ice, heating it. Must be the magmamen and their SUVs. These facts, however, do not faze the Gia crowd and their Elite/Governmental backers. The fact that a super storm hit the NE US is also being played as evidence of GW. Thank God that before GW no such things ever happened. How are they to explain that Russia and Eastern Europe [and he left out China] are projected to have the coldest winter in 20 years? Oh, but I doubt my Western readers are even aware of that.

    In response to Dr. 9’s query, “On a scale from 1 (lowest) to 10 (highest) how would you rate the likelihood of an armed rebellion here in Obamerica?”, Mr. Obama’s re-election has virtually made certain that we will eventually suffer an armed revolt, i.e., a 10.

    The money will run out. The parasites will riot for more and attempt to take from producers who will be forced to defend themselves and what is theirs. I see no way to avert the inevitable given our present trajectory.

    Sadly, this kind of news is increasingly common in Wester Lands:

    A cruel mum who beat her son to death for failing to learn parts of the Koran by heart has been jailed for life and ordered to serve a minimum of 17 years.

    http://www.gistmania.com/talk/topic,140295.0.html

    Sara Ege, 33, was convicted of murder after it was revealed she had burned the body of her seven-year-old boy Yaseen before trying to claim he had died in a house fire.

    But a murder trial heard she treated little Yaseen like a “dog” and repeatedly beat him with a stick for failing to memorise religious texts quickly enough. Ege collapsed as the sentence was delivered at Cardiff Crown Court and had to be helped, trembling and sobbing, from the dock.

    THANKS, LIEberals!

    No really, you’re doing a great job!

    Amazingly enough, for the 17th time since becoming a national figure back in 1992 with her husband’s presidency, Hillary Clinton was voted as the most admired woman by lunatics who think their opinions actually matter.

    Quentin Tarantino, director of “Pulp Fiction” and “Django Unchained,” speaks about accusations that film violence is responsible for mass shootings. We all know he’s right about this – like guns, violent films don’t cause mass shootings, crazy people do.

    Will Kanye Suffer the Kardashian Curse? Many of the men who have fallen for the Kardashian sisters have suffered career troubles after getting involved with the family. Is Kanye West next? Hopefully the answer to that will be yes.

    Crime apparently took a backseat Sunday to the Washington Redskins’ first home NFL playoff game in 13 years.
