My Grandfather told me the truth is revealed in the little things

I thought of that when I saw this article.

He was a small boy working on a farm (someone else’s) near what is today the Belarus border and was then a Czarist Russian dominated Polish population. The people were getting a bit uppity, especially the farmers, an independent lot.

So in come the cossacks to destroy everything, just not the way you think.

No one was hurt. They came to the farm, quartered their soldiers, and their horses, and ate the family out of every single little morsel of food for them, and feed grain for their farm animals until it was all gone, and then moved on.

The little thing?

When they found out my grandfather just toiled there, and lived in the barn, the Cossacks, who would under any other circumstance charge back and forth thru his shtetl until it was acceptably raped, murdered and in all ways rendered uninhabitable, made sure he ATE WITH THEM and was full.
It was that act, he said which told him they were going to destroy the farmers, perhaps KILL them if this did not work. Indeed, when he told the farmer, they made plans to get the family away. Here, in fact.

So now, what little thing informs us?

We look to Barack Obama. His recent signing (actually not, just an imperial memorandum) of the no deport for illegal immigrants, in effect making up laws set up the big argument as an indicator to his self arrogation of power, and his desire and RIGHT to do so, because he says so. It is his ROLE. He know it.

Other say, ‘BAH, every prez does this’

So what is the little thing?

Soldiers forced to relocate wedding for Obama’s golfing

One couple wanted to get married, but President Obama wanted to play golf.
Army captains Natalie Heimel and Edward Mallue Jr. knew Obama was headed to Hawaii for the holidays, so on a whim, they extended him an invite to attend their Dec. 28 wedding — one he politely declined. That same day, they were informed they would have to move their wedding location.

The wedding was set to be at the 16th tee box at Kaneohe Kipper Golf Course on the Marine Corps Base in Hawaii — a favorite of both Mallue and Obama.

“It was kind of ironic they got the letter from them and then, within hours, they were told they had to be moved due to him,” Jamie McCarthy, Mallue’s sister, told Bloomberg Politics. “It was emotional, especially for her — she’s the bride and in less than 24 hours they had to change everything they had planned.”

It’s his right, you see.

First citizen and all that.

The United States and everything in it is his, to be used as he sees fit.

We ought to be grateful when he sees fit to share a few morsels with us.

Well, at least the schmuck in chief called the couple during the wedding, apologizing profusely, claiming the White House didn't know about it until afterward and offering congrats and generally chit chatting.

Easier to ask forgiveness than ask permission...

What Americans do not understand, is that Obama is a product of the Third World. He spent his formative years in Indonesia. The varnish he received in subsequent years, while attending Ivy League schools, is nothing but that: varnish. His core is Third World, where leaders do as they wish, and the law is no obstruction to your whims.

Those of us who come from that world, have no problem identifying the core values of the individual.

And also those close to him in his childhood and youth, despised American values ... What could we expect from him? I saw it as soon as he demolished the first couple of the land. The following six years were nothing but confirmation of my worse fears.
