(Gunny G: IMHO, HEY-YOU! Is MORE THAN APPROPRIATE!) ~ Why Is the President of the United States Called “Mr. President” and How Did the Nickname Originate?
The president of the United States was not always called “Mr. President”.
Washington wanted citizens to call him “His Mightiness, the President,” but to many people, that sounded too much like addressing the king they’d fought so hard to shed.
Is the President Incompetent or Lawless?By Andrew P. Napolitano

It has been well established under the Constitution and throughout our history that the president’s job as the chief federal law enforcement officer permits him to put his ideological stamp on the nature of the work done by the executive branch.

The American Political System is About to Implode
by LAWRENCE SELLIN, PHD March 6, 2014
The Obama Administration is in a death spiral, mortally wounded by its own messianic left-wing ideology, naiveté, incompetence, lawlessness and persistent lying.
Barack Obama aspired to be Jesus by acting like Stalin.
For a change, let’s start being honest about the shameful condition of our political system. If the Constitution and the rule of law had been enforced, instead of the tenets of political correctness, Obama would have already resigned, been impeached or he may not have been elected at all.
By Dave Hodges
(INTELLIHUB) – Prior to the 2012 election, David Axerlrod, announced that Obama would push for a constitutional amendment to rollback free speech if he was re-elected. Obama is making good on that promise. Obama’s promise to destroy free speech combined with the passage of the NDAA, constitutes a lethal cocktail for all freedom loving Americans.
Happy Birthday Marines and Others!!!!!
THE MARINES! SINCE 1775… OR 1798?
THE TRUE BIRTHDAY OF THE CORPS!
July 11, 1798?
November 10, 1775
“… When the peace treaty with Britain finally was signed in 1783, only the Continental frigate Alliance was still in commission. A small Marine guard commanded by Lieutenant Thomas Elwood stayed with the frigate until Congress decided to sell the vessel in September. With the sale of the Alliance, the Continental Navy and Marines went out of existence.”
From, The United States Marines A History, by BGen Ed Simmons…
“…As for the Marines, only the slenderest thread of continuity can be claimed by virtue of “marines” serving in the Revenue Cutter Service…There were to be Marine “quotas”…not “detachments” for there was no corps from which they could be detached…
…on 11 July 1798, the true birthday of the Corps,
President John Adams approved…establishing and organizing a Marine Corps.”
Customs and Traditions
Marine Corps Birthday Celebration
“The U.S. Marine Corps begins preparations for its “birthday party” every summer. Activities become more feverish as the fall hues arrive. By early November, every Marine is either rehearsing his role in the “party” or pressing, polishing, and spit-shining in order to appear at his or her best for the Birthday Ball. This has not always been the case, however. In fact, Marines have not always celebrated their founding on November the 10th.
Formal commemoration of the birthday of the Marine Corps began on 10 November 1921. That particular date was chosen because on that day the Second Continental Congress resolved in 1775 to raise two battalions of Continental Marines.
…..What’s next? Confiscation! “The Obama administration is reportedly moving on plans to nationalize private 401k and IRA retirement accounts, and replace them with government sponsored annuities (aka Treasury bonds that the Treasury currently can’t sell to anyone but the Fed).”
Obama has begun a plan to nationalize (aka confiscate) private pensions and to eliminate private retirement accounts, including IRAs and 401k plans.
Think it can’t happen here? Think again!
The Military Junta Is Seizing Control –….. “Thomas Jefferson or John McCain? John Adams or Lindsey Graham? Alfred Mahan or Smedley Butler? The Pentagon or the ocean? Which one is better for defense?” | DICK.GAINES: AMERICAN! ~ LONE BLOGGER…
What is so mind boggling about the United States maintaining an empire of troops and bases around the world and spending so much money on “defense” is that America has been blessed with natural national defense.
