    Pharaoh Obama and his Lawless Regime has been able to desensitize the USA by repeatedly piling one lawless or corrupt act on top of another. Before the populace knows it, the country is ruined (transformed , as in changed from X to Y). As a nation, we are like the proverbial frog in the pot that is very slowly being brought to boil.

    Fast & Furious.
    National Debt to 17 Trillion
    Fall of Credit Rating of Dollar
    NSA Snoop Fest
    Benghazi Lies and Cover up
    Solyndra, Fisker et al
    IRS Political Activity
    IRS Computer "crash"
    Israel Distancing
    Support for Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt
    ACA Lies, Manipulation, Sign Up Fiasco
    Van Jones
    Voter Fraud
    ISIS/Iraq
    Coal Industry/EPA
    Release of 5 Terrorists from Gitmo for a potential deserter
    Unlawful Executive Orders Over Congress
    Immigration Invasions

    He will, in my opinion, simply continue to pile one on top of another to reach his goal. Deconstruction from a republic form of government (note definition of Republic below) to a Semi-Totalitarian / Socialistic government.

    A republic is a form of government in which power resides in the people,[1]and the government is ruled by elected leaders run according to law (fromLatin:res publica), rather than inherited or appointed (such as through inheritance or divine mandate).

    You know what's also desensitizing? Calling every little thing "socialism" or "tyranny" and treating every action of someone in government like the worst offense ever commited by anyone, anywhere in history for short term partisan gain.

    I believe you are overstating. The list by the OP does not represent "every action of someone in government". I would suggest that there are likely many, many more improper actions by the current administration .... they've just not yet come to light.

    Also ..... folks consistently denying the wrong-doings by the current administration and blindly supporting a miserable failure as PotUS "for short term partisan gain" is desensitizing and, unfortunately ..... divisive and destructive to our nation.

    Well, your Pharaoh's actions have not been "little thing(s)".

    Would you call the 7+ TRILLION in Nat'l Debt a little thing?

    How about a US Ambassador + Americans deaths as little things (maybe you need a close relative to experience that little thing)

    Or how about a little thing like the IRS being the Political arm of the White House (want another Watergate type presidency?) Or maybe thousands of rogue IRS agents on you?

    Maybe that little thing like supporting a Muslim group's takeover of Egypt that was deemed too extreme by its own populace and over turned ? Get it? Supporting a "too extreme" Muslim group!

    Or that little thing of those 5 terrorists being released...maybe one or two of those "little thing" guys can plot a bombing that directly affects the lives of people you love ? Still a little thing?

    How about you and your neighborhood have 3 dozen illegal immigrants move in with you all. Now not such a little thing. Or say you take your loved one to the Emergency Room and your hospital and you have to wait 16 hours behind some illegals. Not such a little thing anymore huh?

    How about that little thing where your cousin gets shot by a Fast & Furious gun ?

    Or that other little thing where your health insurance triples in cost even though you were happy with what you had. Btw, your doc will no longer see you, he only wants cash, no insurance.

    The little thing like the company down the street that opens up with your tax dollars and fails miserably..... like send more money to Solyndra right?

    Maybe when you go to vote for Hillary in the next Pres election and some big tough white dudes stop you and refuse to let you vote, as well as all your family and friends, because you are known as libs. But the Justice Dept does -0-.....because the guy in charge is ultra right wing. That would not cause you a problem since voting is a little thing.

    We are neck deep in Socialism and Tyranny. You like the feel though.

    There's really nothing exceptional about this administration in terms of improper actions. In 3 years it will be amazing how irrelevant almost all of those things are, as either they will become go-to crutches for Pubs when defending the "improper actions" of their guy, or you will be foaming at the mouth WRT Hillary taking things to another level from the previous Democratic administration. Meanwhile, life will go on as usual.

    Maybe you are right about desensitization, because I didnt even really bother to fully read this. Its boring, predictable partisan stuff.

    "irrelevant "????.......lives are irrelevant to Libs? See the murder of millions of babies.

    Keep killing. Keep lying. Keep running up the National Debt (why do libs not like to talk about the dollar?)

    The slow death of the greatest nation ever is boring.

    Actually you do....indirectly....by voting in people who support and vote for partial birth abortions.

    Go watch one....watch the forceps grabbing the baby's head, then extracting it out of the womb. Watch the blood and see the death. But then again, that maybe boring to you.

    Well ... thanks to the US Constitution you are welcome to hold and express that opinion .... even though quite a few believe it is erroneous. Of course ... in a few years, if barry soetoro-obama has his way .... it's likely your freedom of expression will be further diminished, too.

    Yup, we're always just one twice-elected slightly left-of-center Democrat away from losing all of the freedoms.

    I don't know if you can call it desensitization. You guys piss and moan all the time. Maybe you aren't sure what the word means.

    So say the people who gave a president a free pass to lie us into a war to:

    1. settle a personal family grudge.
    2. boost Halliburton's stock price.
    3. satisfy an evangelical, crusading type belief.

    We're suppose to accept this as "the new normal" and if anyone finds any of this troublesome they are labeled an unhinged radical. No, the radical is in the Oval Office and surrounded by his closest advisors who share his radical mindset.

    You seem to be accepting it just fine, mostly confining your whining to message board rants and all.

    That's rich......shame on me for expressing my opinion on a message board. I assume any criticism toward your Radical and Chief is nothing other than "whining". BTW I did all I could to block his re-election..........not that you know any of it, and all.
