” These are the times that try men’s souls,”  said Thomas Paine who also coined the phrase, “The United States of America.” 

Rich in character and history, Thomas Paine the revolutionary democrat has been brought back to life 200 years after his death in the new video entitled, We The People Stimulus Bill by Dr. Bob Basso.  See it here https://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/  Innocuous enough, until the President of  The United States, That One, The One, Barry Baraq  Mohammad Hussein Sottero Dunham Obama, Jr., has a problem with it and summons Dr. Basso to the White House to discuss the disturbing nature of the videos, and tries to do it secretly- in a day and age of self proclaimed transparency in government.  

Why would Obama feel threatened by a patriotic message, let alone one delivered in the tone of Thomas Paine?  Could it have to do with his slip in the polls or the amount of Tea Party’s and revolutionary happenings?  The Hartford Courant summed it up nicely saying, “The movement takes its name, and much of its imagery, from American history. Participants — including home-schooling moms, Libertarians and Rush Limbaugh Republicans — compare themselves to the 18th century patriots who dumped tea into Boston Harbor to protest taxation without representation. http://www.courant.com/news/politics/hc-tea-party-politics-0329.artmar29,0,2154911.story?track=rss

The Crisis is a collection of articles written by Thomas Paine during the American Revolutionary War. In 1776, Paine wrote the cornerstone of American democracy, Common Sense arguing for Independence from England. The essays constitute Paine’s ongoing support for an independent and self-governing America through the many severe crises of the Revolutionary War.  http://www.ushistory.org/Paine/crisis/singlehtml.htm  He also wrote the best sellers of his time,  The Rights of Man and The Age of Reason.

Verso, the blog of the UK office of the radical independent publisher, http://versouk.wordpress.com/2009/03/27/revolutionary-paine/#comment-10  reported that the Socialist History Society and the Thomas Paine Society conducted a special meeting  this weekend to mark the 200th anniversary of his death.   Tom Paine’s legacy was examined  in an event at the Conway Hall in Holborn, London.   http://www.socialisthistorysociety.co.uk/paineflyer.pdf for details.

While Britain operates under a parliamentary system, both British and American stories of liberty are intertwined.   Heck, even the famed Beatles hailed from Liverpool, and came to fame with the song Revolution among other famous hits.  The youth today can probably name every Jonas Brother yet have no clue who Paul McCartney, John Lennon, Ringo Starr, George Harrison or Thomas Paine were.   

The British Library’s has a super free exhibition called Taking Liberties about the struggle for Britain’s freedoms and rights that uncovers the roots of British democracy over a period of more than 900 years.  It’ s interactive and available on line http://www.bl.uk/onlinegallery/takingliberties/interactive.html where you are placed right in the center of current debates about vital rights and freedoms in society: detention without charge, the right to privacy, devolved government, free speech and so on.  As you give your answers you can see, on clear and innovative 3D graphics, how your views compare to everyone else’s.  Are you content with things as they are or do you want change? How do you balance order with freedom?

“These rights didn’t simply happen. They were hard won, the product of hundreds of years of debate, struggle, bloodshed and war. Many people died for them: heroes, villains, and some who were both.   Nor are these rights ours forever. They can be changed or removed, and at various times in our history, they have been.”

America may have The Constitution and The Bill of Rights, but here you will find the Magna Carta of 1215 and taking in the death warrant of Charles I, the 1832 Reform Act, the Holloway prison diary of suffragette Olive Wharry, and concluding with the Beveridge Report and the Human Rights Act, this is the definitive story of British liberty told through the printed pages. 

What has Obama authored?  Dreams from my Father, The Audacity of Hope and oh yeah, he signed into legislation pork filled stimulus bills that even he, did not bother to read. 

Thomas Paine my be dead some 200 years but his legacy lives on.  Obama’s legacy is yet to be determined in the history pages of The New World Order.

President Barack Obama is  believed to be among more than 200 nominations for the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize.

Alfred Nobel who among other things invented dynamite, created five annual prizes—chemistry, physics, literature, medicine and peace—in his will to honor, “The greatest benefit on mankind.”   Past nominees include Adolf Hitler, Josef Stalin, Benito Mussolini, Fidel Castro, just to name a few.  Al Gore constantly reminds us he won.  Kissinger’s acceptance caused uproar over the former National Security Advisor’s role in a secret war against Cambodia and the overthrow of the Chilean government.

Being nominated, obviously does not reflect on the merits of one’s accomplishments.  Obama has been President for what, all of six weeks?  How have Obama’s deeds and actions been “The greatest benefit on mankind?”

Obama’s nomination demeans the process and should he win, will be testament to the fact that he has won only because he has a black face.  Martin Luther King and Nelson Mandela accomplished things worthy of recognition, not the color of their skin.  

President Obama has no chemistry, physics or medical background leaving only a prize for literature or peace to be afforded to him.  To think that Obama’s actions are on the same level as the accomplishments of Nobel Peace Prize laureate Bishop Desmond Tutu, is ludicrous.  This brings us to the category of literature to support his nomination. 

The democratic party’s rock star president wrote, “The Audacity of Hope,” and “Dreams from My Father.”  The audacity to nominate Obama for a Nobel Prize based on race is foremost disgruntling, he has done nothing so far as President, and to think that his literature supports a nomination of a Nobel Prize in any category, is pure hooey. 

President Barack Obama’s 2010 budget is the most recent thing he has authored.  On the title page above the words 2010 Budget Obama writes: “A New Era of Responsibility.” “For too long our budget has not told the whole truth about how precious tax dollars are spent,” Obama said in remarks ahead of the release of his $3.55 trillion spending blueprint, which projected a huge $1.17 trillion deficit.  “Large sums have been left off the books, including the true cost of fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan. And that kind of dishonest accounting is not how you run your family budgets at home. It’s not how your government should run its budgets either,” he said. {Reuters}  This sounds familiar from the campaign trail.

Tony Fratto, Bush’s former White House spokesman specializing on economic issues responded saying that “Trying to mask huge spending increases under the cloak of ‘fiscal responsibility’ is the height of audacity, our budgets were honest, open and transparent. Every dime spent was presented, debated, voted on and counted.”  Congressman Obama didn’t bother to vote too often, but as a member of Congress, he is equally responsible for our 10 Trillion dollar debt.  http://projects.washingtonpost.com/congress/members/o000167/votes/

I highly doubt that the budget qualifies as a piece of literature or that it supports any peace processes;  rather it is another piece of crap and certainly President Obama is not meritorious enough to receive a Nobel Peace Prize.

Updated, Friday, October 10, 2009.  President Obama has indeed won the Nobel Peace Prize, “for giving the world “hope for a better future” and striving for nuclear disarmament, in a surprise award that drew both warm praise and sharp criticism. http://news.yahoo.com/s/nm/20091009/pl_nm/us_nobel_peace_obama
