Instead of a teapot we have a crackpot.

No Hank, no Monday Night Football, ESPN, owned by far left leaning Disney struck back at Hank Williams today, taking his trademark, “Are you ready for some football?” song off fo [sic] the opening of Monday night football.

As much as I love sports, I have just about had it with ESPN. Until Hank Williams is brought back to sing the intro to MNF, I won’t watch it and I encourage everyone else to turn off MNF.

Really? said all of these things. Why don't some folks just stop while they are ahead.

Comparing Obama to Hitler was so accurate and wise. Hitler had a personal security force called "brown shirts," remember?

BO wants a "Civilian Security Force" (his words not mine) to be and this is dang-near a quote, if not...

"as big, powerful and well-funded" as our military!

Why? what for?! We have a huuuge military that we can barely afford. Oh, he needs to help overload the system, to crash it, Cloward and Piven style, to then be able to force a new system on us all, yeah, that's right.

but, for what??

We have our military, Federal Police, FBI, CIA, and all kinds of alphabet soup Agencies, then each state has a National Guard, Dept. of Public Safety, Sheriffs departments, Local Police, Fire.........good grief...comparing BO to Hitler indeed is not a crazy idea.

Just FYI Hank Willaims did not compare Obama to Hitler. He made an analogy, not a comparison.

A comparison is saying A is like B. An analogy is saying A is to B as C is to D.

For example, water is to a swimming pool as an apple is to an apple pie. In that analogy, we are not saying water is like apples, we are saying the relationship between water and a swimming pool is like the relationship between apples and apple pies.

Hank Williams Jr. didn't say that Obama was like Hitler. He said the relationship between Obama and Boehner was analagous to the relationship between Hitler and Netanyahu.

Did no one take the SAT?

It shows complete ignorance and stupidity. To condone it even worse. No wonder the tea party gets a reputation as being a bunch of ignorant, hate filled morons.

Great post. I was just going to say the same thing but you saved me the trouble. These Obamabots need to settle themselves down and realize their leader was not insulted.

Sorry, I'm not impressed with your logic. The man was comparing the DIFFERENCE between Hitler and Netanyahu with the DIFFERENCE between Obama and Boehner.
