America / Tea Party… Take Note – Egyptian President Morsi agrees to rescind sweeping powers

Home - by - December 9, 2012 - 00:33 America/New_York - 14 Comments

A national dialogue committee said a referendum on a disputed draft constitution will be held on schedule, but President Mohammed Morsi has agreed to rescind the near-absolute power he had granted himself. The statement came after a meeting that was boycotted by the main opposition leaders who are calling for the Dec. 15 vote to be canceled.

    Guess it pretty much is going to take the same thing here riots, crowds and protest before Obama rescinds his dictatorship as well.

    Meh. Next Saturday the Egyptian Constitution will make sharia the law of the land and Morsi will have the Moslem Brotherhood’s backing to do whatever he wants. What’s a few days in the big scheme?

    I could just kick myself for not seeing this coming.

    I’m wondering if the working public will, after a year or two of ObamaTax, be up in arms about the crappy nature of the economy and their specific jobs or careers. Because a lot of people are going to lose full time status which means they lose benefits too.

    At some point, people are going to go to jail. And that is when the fit is going to hit the shan because the press will try to spin it as a failure to pay income taxes but there will be a hue and cry to report the truth, which is they were put in jail because they didn’t have healthcare.

    Personally, I don’t see how this law can remain for more than 5 years. It is so poorly written and not understood that there will be no consistency in the application of enforcement. And just wait until a black liberal goes to jail for no healthcare. That will be the end of ObamaTax.

    Well perhaps Morsi isn’t quite the narcissist head case we’ve got for a president

    He’s obviously working “Plan B.” Ideology driven groups like the Muslim Brotherhood or the Democrat party do not give up, just regroup and reattack.

    Don’t be too quick to call this one. Xavier is probably correct. As far as Obama, we will probably have to burn this entire country down before we can depose the POS. His legions are an ignorant and stubborn lot.

    This is a classic head fake…he’s pretending to concede a bit to take some of the pressure off.
    He’s consolidating his base, will regroup and declare Martial Law.
    Dictatorship 101.

    If he can rescind his dictatorial powers, he can re-instate them at will.

    Anti-Morsi protesters arrested by police are being systematically tortured by Moose-limb Brotherhood thugs.

    Ah, Spring is in the air, and a young Arab’s thoughts turn to electrocution of his enemies’ genitals.
