It's good to be the king.

His Imperial Majesty, Obama The Beloved, is doing his very best to destroy American enterprise and the economy. Oh! I do so hope he makes it. I would hate to think that anything exceeds his grasp, so grand and glorious he is. Once the greatest economy the world has ever seen is reduced to ash, we will be finally set free of the yoke of brutal prosperity and delivered to the ennobling depths of cleansing poverty and despair. Then -- and only then -- will we at last understand that all good things come from government and our Wise and Just Rulers.

"You didn't build that."

"...at some point, you've made enough money."

"I believe that if you spread the wealth around, it's good for everyone."

"I don't believe people should be allowed to own guns."

"So if somebody wants to build a coal-powered plant, they can, it's just that it will bankrupt them."

"Under my plan electricity rates will necessarily skyrocket."

"Barack will never allow you to go back to your lives as usual."

Abandon all hope, ye who enter here.

He's just warming up.

The Cost of Obama’s Regulatory Explosion

Nearly double the cost of the first three years of Bush and Clinton combined.

2:29 PM, Jan 30, 2013 • By JEFFREY H. ANDERSON

As Adam White discusses in detail, there’s nothing moderate or incremental about the increase in federal regulations — and hence in centralized executive power — under President Obama. To the contrary (as White notes), according to figures published by the Obama White House (see table 2-1), the costs of regulations issued by this administration have dwarfed the costs of regulations issued by prior administrations.

A picture may be worth a thousands words, but in this case, it's worth billions and billions of dollars.

Get used to poverty. It's good for you. Your Leaders have spoken.


  1. I think the gravy train is going to derail soon. With record high February gas prices, the EPA shutting down power plants left and right, companies cutting hours in response to Obamacare, and talk about more new taxes on the middle class I'm afraid this may be a very bad summer. Rising gas prices in February when the economy is already just limping along is definitely not a good sign.

    I just hope a mob of his free shit army followers literally (and I don't mean figuratively) tears him limb from limb when their goodies get cut off. Always have to have something to look forward to.

  2. Sadly, RG, it's not going to end with a bang, but rather a whimper as the system slowly implodes. I am not optimistic that we'll ever see justice done. I need more ice cream and cookies.

    1. Yeah, you may be right. Damned if I know what fresh nightmare this world gone insane is going to deliver next. :(

    2. Joan at Primoridal Slack had a terrific post about exactly that, Lambert. That we will not see our nation destroyed in a hailstorm of bullets and burning buildings...just a constant, gradual tightening of the noose.

      sigh...ice cream and cookies sounds nice. With bourbon.

  3. Before he gets all comfortable being king, Il Douche needs to consider what happened to Louis XVI. Yeah, it's good to be king until the peasants revolt ... and the BlightBringer has already let us bitter clingers know that he thinks we stink on ice.

    1. Right now he's just an asshole and assholes need to go to prison. If he really steps it up, he might need the more "aristocratic" way of retiring. Permanently.
