I'm sure glad I have a grasp on reality unlike some people in this country.

These people have no grasp of reality. Change in a democratic society generally comes at a glacial pace. Some rant about the Civil Rights Act of 1964 as a sweeping federal intrusion on "states' rights," but fail to recall it took nearly a century after slavery ended to give everyone in the nation equal rights. Likewise, the ACA passed after at least two decades of wrangling in Washington by members of both parties. And, need I mention that Obama is nowhere near the frothing-at-the-mouth ultra-liberal these people imagine him to be?

Seriously, these Focus on the Family people have little faith in the American form of government if they can imagine one president bringing so much radical change (given the current make-up of Congress) in only 4 years.

Dimwits.

(28) Taxes: [‘The land of the free’?]
Tax rates have gone up on personal income, dividends, capital gains,
corporations, and inheritance transfers. The amount of income subject to Social Security tax has nearly doubled. The effect on the economy has been devastating. We have experienced a prolonged recession. Everyone has been hurt by this, but the poor have been hurt most.

Ah, yes, RWNJ concern for the poor. Totally convincing. //

And there you have it, we have finally reached the end of this terrible attempt at foreseeing the future. By my count that is 33 predictions that were completely wrong and only one that was partially correct. A very bad showing indeed by the Focus on the Family prognostication department.

Yet we still hear daily how Obama is ruining the country, leading us into socialism, and taking away our rights. Why is that? Is it because it really doesn’t matter whether any of this is true or not, that simply hearing negative prediction after negative prediction has lead many to conclude that where there is smoke there must also be fire? I for one believe this to be the case.

Particularly on the internet one constantly sees statements that Obama is destroying the country, they simple state it as if it were a self-evident fact. You rarely if ever see these statement followed by any examples or anecdotes explaining how he is doing this or why they believe it to be true. It is as if we are simply expected to know, I believe that many times it is articles just like the one above that have formed their certainty of Obama’s threat to America.

So next time someone starts talking about all the horrible, horrible, things that Obama has done, is doing, or will do in his next term? Give them a link to Part I of this post, who knows, maybe they will actually read it and get some factual information for a change.

Many, many updings do for this Tiny.

Now in October 2012, after seeing what has happened in the last four years, the answer to that question is ‘No.’ Our freedoms have been systematically taken away. Many of ‘the brave’ are in jail. We are no longer ‘the land of the free and the home of the brave.’

FEMA trailer camps!

Maybe someone in our librul media could have someone from FOTF or the FRC to go over this infamous list of erroroneous predictions.

But, because WE were alert, Obama has cleverly put all this stuff off until his second term...

There is no reasoning with people who live in an alternate universe.
