I didn't mean to imply that voting for McCain or Romney would have made a significant difference...more along the lines of the fact that Obama doesn't have as much influence as most would think. It's the willful ignorance of the public and the insidious nature of the media that are protecting Obama's virtually unlimited power and feeding his ego. These people have more influence on the decline of the US than Obama.

Edit: Time wants to name the person with the most significant impact on the direction of the world, and I think the Obama voter (supporter - including the media that is suppressing information that makes him look bad) is the most influential.

In the end... Notwithstanding the absurdity of the Birth Certificate situation... It IS useful to some degree... It's a barometer... It's a piece of litmus paper...

IOW ~ it has it's use in determining whether, in conversation. a person is worth your time or not... I'm done trying to 'change people's minds' about:

-  9/11

- Obama's Birth Certificate

- Why it's odd that this country is less than 2% jews, yet they control the majority of mass media production & distribution, banking, & political activism

- Why they should buy gold, or food, or ammo

They get it or they don't... But 'situations' like that are useful because their POV is highly radioactive & thus moves the needle of the 'SHEEP-O-METER'...

Have you seen Time lately? It's like 20 pages long. Time, Newsweek, Network news, they're all dying. The only people who read/watch their news from those sources are those over 40 years old. And every year the cut-off line moves to a higher age. Younger people do not get their news from the MSM, and there is no way for the MSM to get them back. As soon as the "greatest" generation dies off, the MSM is done.

'Time does say their Person of the Year is the person who most affected the events of the year, "for better or for worse."'

Person of the Year should go to Scooter Braun. Scooter sat there watching youtube videos until he 'discovered' Justin Bieber, Carly Rae Jepson (Call Me Maybe) and Psy (Gangnam Style).

He either has an amazing sense for what people will like, or he somehow managed to convince groups of people, like the American Olympians, to make parody and lip-synch videos to songs by his two new artists, making them the most famous things on Earth in 2012.

Whether we are better or worse for it, I vote that Scooter is the most influential person of 2012.

The term “person” means an individual, a trust or estate, a partnership, or a corporation.


The word "person" in legal terminology is perceived as a general word which normally includes in its scope a variety of entities other than human beings. Seee.g. 1 U.S.C. sec 1. Church of Scientology v. U.S. Dept. of Justice (1979) 612F.2d 417, 425.

TIME doesn't care what "person" means.  They made the personal computer "Person of the Year" awhile back.   The idea is you get someone famous associated with the issue to help sell ads....

where do see me making that claim regarding Time. I was pointing out the government definition of the word which 99.9999999 % of the slaves have no clue of that fact or who they are in the eyes of the government.

He didn't build that.... But he did give assault rifles to drug cartels to kill Americans and Mexicans, and he did give weapons and organize Al-Qaeda in Benghazi to fight for the MB and a new Caliphate.

Obama has won twice, does that mean he will kill twice as many people as Hitler?

1937's didn't do too well either:

Pious Chinese Generalissimo Chiang Kaishek, Man of 1937, was forced to retreat to a "New" West China, where he faced the possibility of becoming only a respectable figurehead in an enveloping Communist movement.

And so, Taiwan was born. Nice call there Time. 


Better yet (on Man of the Year 1938):

When without loss of blood he reduced Czechoslovakia to a German puppet state, forced a drastic revision of Europe's defensive alliances, and won a free hand for himself in Eastern Europe by getting a "hands-off" promise from powerful Britain (and later France), Adolf Hitler without doubt became 1938's Man of the Year.


And in Eastern Europe, Man of the Years 1939, 1940, 1941, 1942, 1943, 1944...

How fitting.  Wasn't Hitler TIME's person of the year as well.  TIME having War Criminals and Psycopaths on the front cover is their PsyOP method of operation.

The man who yesterday said of the murdered children in ct..."god called them home"...thereby making the shooter the agent of gods plan. Like Lloyd Blankfein...doing gods work. The man who kills children on a daily basis via drone strikes in sovereign nations The man who doubled the national debt adding more debt than all previous presidents combined. The man who said "it's a failure of leadership" when talking of the debt ceiling. The man who.....

Kent Brockman: Springfield has been overrun by a strange and almost certainly evil sect, calling themselves The Movementarians. In exchange for your home and all your belongings, the Leader of this way out... and wrong religion, the Leader claims he'll take believeres to the planet, Blisstonia. Excuse my editorial laugh.
Kent Brockman: But...
Kent Brockman: Ladies and gentlemen, I just learned of a new change in management. Welcome, Movementarians. I love you, perfect Leader... and new CEO of KBBL Broadcasting.

All presidents do for the second term. The first term they need to look like a youngster out to change washington. The second term they need to look like the regal leader who has grown into the job and is responsible.

Psy Op bullshit. Obama has done less work than any president in history. His wife parties like the house slave who finds the master died in his sleep.
