    My brother called me a week ago. Said he had some 'updates', his cryptic code for neighborhood news (I live ten blocks away.) Immediately after telling me his neighbor (we hardly know her) had a massive stroke and is basically brain-dead, he started in on me that Obama is a traitor, should be impeached, should be held responsible for the deaths in Benghazi, especially those brave Navy seals that were killed. He claimed that since I was one of those liberal democrats, I should be condemned as well, and that there will be a civil war about it. He was foaming at the mouth. He said "BRING IT ON". Well, I realized that he was a few glasses of wine south of crazy, so I said, "your conspiracy theories are fine, what ever you think is good to go.", and I left. Haven't been back. He still has bags of dried beans from Obama's first election, when he thought that the economy would tank (instead of the DOW tripling).

    Well, he is basically a pussy and doesn't like to even think about violence, but he was foaming and I simply left. My brother. What is going on here? I put up with Bush. My brother can't deal with losing an election? Civil war? He wants to shoot me for having a different opinion? What is Limbo doing to his brain? Fox is fair and insane.

    Well, it' a fair description of many of the more extreme conservative members of this forum.

    Well I do see exaggeration seems to be a genetic trait!..."Dow tripling"??
    I didn't know the DJIA was over 36,000?
    "Foaming at the mouth".. really?

    Now as far as Obama being impeached, let's look at what happened when unlike YOU I was 30 years old during Watergate.
    Nixon was GOING to be impeached for lying to Congress.
    What do you think will happen to Obama for HIS LYING to Congress,to the world when he said in his exact words..

    "And so I don’t want to speak to something until we have all the information.
    What we do know is that the natural protests that arose because of the outrage over the video were used as an excuse by extremists to see if they can also directly harm U.S. interests.”
    So Obama says "I don't want to speak... until we have..."
    But in the next sentence "WHAT WE DO KNOW IS THAT THE NATURAL PROTESTS... "outrage over the video"!!

    Obama was RIGHT in his first sentence "I don't want to speak"... BUT as his is wont to do won't leave it alone.. AND WAS WRONG to blame the video for the Deaths!

    Zero dead in Watergate... 4 dead in Benghazi"!


    So why so quick to blame the video and NOT state the truth it was a terrorist act?

    Representative Peter King stated that former CIA Director David Petraeus stated that he knew the Benghazi attack was terrorism and that the talking points given to Ambassador Susan Rice were different from the ones prepared by the CIA. Petraeus stated Rice's talking points were edited to demphasized the possibility of terrorism.

    Less then 6 weeks before re-election... did Obama who was USING the statement "Osama died GM is alive" as a campaign slogan convincing voters he was STRONG terrorism
    think it was good politically to have Benghazi attributed to a PLANNED terrorist attack?
    I though Obama did away with terrorism at least that was the politically campaign rhetoric!!

    I just watched the Will Ferrell movie called "The Campaign" last night.

    At one point in the campaign, Will Ferrell's character tells his followers that his opponent's pug dogs are Chinese, and puts a photo of pug dogs on the screen with the red chinese flag behind them.

    As his opponent is leaving the event later, a maniac pounds on his car and tells him to get rid of his chinese commie dogs.

    It perfectly encapsulates the incredibly shallowness and stupidity which has reached critical mass in our society today.

    Dried beans are good, I distill Kidney beans. But, I was talking more about the endless conspiracy theories that lead people to make Limbo an icon. The left is no stranger to wild accusations (think truthers), but we didn't want to shoot our own brothers. We had distain for those that didn't see our insane point of view, but we certainly didn't want to shoot them. America is about the principle that our political transitions are peaceful. I thought that Christianity was more mature than Islamic fervor. Civil war is a little different than losing an election by 2 or 3 percent.

    Yeah, I have a brother like that, haven't spoken to him since 2009. I have a cousin that has Obamacare dementia, you would not believe the crap that she has blamed on it, basically every negative medical outcome she hears about. God, it must suck to feel such impotent fear in the face of such towering, horrible tyranny, shame it's all phantom fear.
