Anti-Obama rally

SANTIAGO, Chile (CNN) - Organizers of an anti-Obama rally in central Santiago gathered Monday in the Plaza de Almargro park, a site about four blocks from where President Obama and his Chilean counterpart held meetings and answered questions from the press.

Billed as the “Obama Deception Tour 2011,” invitations encouraged Chileans to engage in “Citizen’s activities” and listen to local bands, including The Miserables Ones and Rebel Sun.  A line at the top of the invitation read: “For Peace – No to a new Iraq in Libya”

    Oh, how they love us now that Barry is president.
    He looks more like Dark Helmet from Spaceballs (1987) than Darth Vader.

    WELL OK! You think you've been had now? Go ahead and put another REPUBLICAN in office. I promise you, they don't give a hoot about you unless you're already rich! You'll see! Americans, black, white and other have known this for ages! THE REPUBLICAN PARTY is the party of the WEALTHY, even historically! 'THE 'bootlegging' ABOLISHIONISTS of the 30s'?!? The people of the brave, honest and intelligent world even knows this! Whether they choose to stand up and say it or not! It will be proved in the polls!

      Yep it all started with greedy Republican Lincoln, he made a fortune on log cabins and parlayed that into combs for chin curtain beards, not to mention top hats.

      Republicans are about wealth, that is true, and they do favor business and capitalism. That is why I have always told my friends act like a Republican to make money act like a Liberal to be poor. Acting like does not mean spending what you do not have, it is to say invest in stock, buy a part of the company, become an owner not a worker.

      A good example are unions, they take money from workers and spend it on strikes, and organization fees. If that money had been used to purchase shares of the companies they would be the owners and could dictate the pay, retirement, working hours. This is the difference in a Democrat and a Republican. Democrats want you to join unions, Republicans want you to own companies.

      Love it or not capitalism is what builds wealth, the former USSR is proof of that. The USSR system was based on state funding, no capital creation, it failed. When Barry creates a government job he is creating a debt that we must continue to feed to keep that job. When a business person creates a job, they create capital and that capital can be used to create other jobs and build building, pay taxes... ... ...

      I think the old Idea of the buggy man Republican going to take what is yours away is out dated and to simple in our complex world.

    My point is I believe that REPUBLICAN FORMER PRESIDENT ABRAHAM LINCOLN was the last REPUBLICAN and administration that gave a D- about the downtrodden, poor, and disenfranchised. 'As I would not be a slave, I shall not be a slave-master'. ABE LINCOLN. They had him killed for it. This is not the same humane PARTY of justice and fairness for all AMERICANS. These are 'dixiecrats'/TEAPARTY members, hiding out in the wings of the REPUBLICAN PARTY and even some DEMOCRATIC PARTY members. GOD PLEASE HELP US!

      Liz, Liz, Liz, please, the idea that Republican do not give a hoot about the poor, are you for real? Many, many republican families give their money and time to charities, notice I said their own money. The Liberals are the greedy, they want to take someone else money and give it to others and call that charity.

      What do you think is better, to give a poor person a job or a check?

    Many DEMOCRAT FAMILIES do the same JAY. I'm sure those charities and causes appreciate the help. That's neither here or there! I'm speaking of the ELITIST REPUBLICANS of the UNITED STATES CONGRESS! They've always been the 'rich' party; have always been the party of politically correctness in appearance, when it came to beaurocratic personal gain! THIS greed's been killing this nations prosperity for a long time! EVEN CHARITIES=BIG TAX WRITEOFFS, OK? Those folks don't do anything, expecting nothing back!

    BTW, I think it's better to give a poor person a job. The minimum wage should be adjusted, though, whereas a working man shouldn't ever be found earning less than a non-worker! There are many checks given to AMERICANS, who never put anything, not one dime into the system. Sit at home or somewhere and draw checks bigger than a worker! Now unless these people were born handicapped or became mentally or physically challenged later, they should've made some contribution to the system. Workers ought to be PAID!

    My 13 year old son likes to run around in the woods with his oafsirt rifle so every other weekend he goes out in the woods for these oafsirt games where they wear protective gear and shoot plastic pellets at each other lots of fun, right? I like the idea of him being out in the fresh air with men of ages 12 to 60 forming brigades and playing soldier great stuff.This past weekend I was disappointed to hear that the organizers put a man in a suit and Obama mask as a target to play a round of Kill Obama . He ran around and all the guts n glory guys took shots at him for fun. At first I was disappointed then I thought I'd lodge a complaint (I mean this is my president, right?), in the end I just decided that my son is old enough to make up his own mind about what kind of person he wants to be. His half-brother Junie is black and his best little brother.What's wrong with America? I can't fix people, but I can damn sure help to create a great man my son. This weekend he's back at it again with his rifle learning from the stupid adults.
