Recently at Reason.tv: Obama's Doublethink Doubletalk (State of the Union Remix)

|

George Orwell defined doublethink as "the power of holding two contradictory beliefs in one's mind simultaneously, and accepting both of them."

When it comes to war, spending, and more, President Barack Obama's 2010 State of the Union address showed that doublethink is alive and well in Washington, D.C.

Approximately two minutes. Written and produced by Paul Feine.

  1. Kurt Haskell tells the truth. The government keeps lying about the underwear bomber. The MSM refuses to cover it.

    2. More cowbell. Any one remember the old Run DMC song “You talk too much”. That is the theme song to the Obama years. Homeboy never shuts up.

      1. “You Talk Too Much”

        Shut up!!!

        You talk too much…
        You talk too much…
        You talk too much…
        You talk too much…

        Hey! You over there, I know about your kind
        You’re like the Independent Network News on Channel 9
        Everywhere that you go, no matter where you at
        I said you talk about this, and you talk about that
        When the cat took your tongue, I say you took it right back
        Your mouth is so big, one bite would kill a Big Mac

        You talk too much You never shut up
        I said you talk too much Homeboy you never shut up

        You talk about people, you don’t even know
        And you talk about places, you NEVER go
        You talk about your girl, from head to toe
        I said your mouth’s moving fast, and your brain’s moving slow

        You talk too much You never shut up!!
        I said you talk too much Homeboy you never shut up

        You’re the instigator, the orator of the town
        You’re the worst when you converse, just a big mouth clown
        You talk when you’re awake, I heard you talk when you sleep
        Has anyone ever told you, that talk is cheap

        You talk too much You never shut, up!!
        I said you talk too much Homeboy you never SHUT UP!!!

        Talking is the one thing, that you can do best
        You told the cavity creeps, to watch out for Crest
        You never have the story, right and exact
        And then you always try to bore me, with your yakkity yak

        You talk too much And then you never shut up
        I said you talk too much Homeboy you never SHUT UP!!!

        Everyday you are out fighting someone in the street
        And you’re always fighting someone you know ya can’t beat
        Then you wonder how, you got in this mess
        Just think of what you said, then take a guess

        You talk too much You never shut up!
        I said you talk too much Homeboy you never SHUT UP!!!

        You’re always spreading rumors, whether bad or good
        You’re the damn Walter Cronkite of the neighborhood
        The Barbara Walters, and the Howard Cosell
        You always come around, with a story to tell

        You talk too much And then you never shut up
        I said you talk too much Homeboy you never SHUT UP!!!

        Said it’s everybody’s business that you love to mind
        And talkin to you, is like dropping a dime
        You’re spreading the word, like it is your job
        You should be a stool pigeon, who works for the mob

        You talk too much And you never shut up
        I said you talk too much Homeboy you never shut up!

        A big blabbermouth, that’s what you are
        If you were a talk show host, you’d be a star
        I said your mouth is big, size extra large
        And when you open it, it’s like my garage

        You talk too much And then you never shut up
        I said you talk too much Homeboy you never shut up

        You always like to gossip, just like a girl
        You talk so damn much, it’s outta this world
        When you’re reincarnated, in your second life
        You won’t be a man, you’ll be a nagging wife

        You talk too much Then you never shut up
        He said you talk too much Homeboy you never SHUT UP!!!

        SHUT UP!!!
        SHUT UP!!!

        Twenty-five hours, eight days a week
        Thirteen months outta year, is when you speak
        I’m tired of listening to the garbage you talk
        Why don’t you find a short pier, and take a long walk

        You talk too much Then you never shut up!
        I said you talk too much Homeboy you never SHUT UP!!!
        You talk too much You could be, out of breath
        You talk too much Man you naggin me to death
        You talk too much Tired of hearing you speak
        You talk too much Eight days a week
        You talk too much Then you never shut up
        I said you talk too much Why don’t you ever SHUT UP!!!
        You talk too much Then you never shut up!
        I said you talk too much Homeboy you never SHUT UP!!!

        1. Is that not Obama?

    3. “Katie Couric will gargle President Obama live during Sunday’s Super Bowl pre-game show.”

      FIXED.

      1. … argle … bargle …

  3. Not sure if Reason will ever link to this. But there is a great article in the WSJ today about the effort to decriminalize pot in Rhoad Island.

    It is behing the subscriber wall. But here is the opening paragraph.

    PROVIDENCE, R.I.?A retired police officer and the proprietor of an organic eatery make an odd couple when it comes to trying to overturn marijuana laws in this tiny state, but Jack Cole and Josh Miller are giving it their best shot.

    Mr. Cole, 71 years old, is a veteran of decades with the New Jersey State Police, almost all with the drug squad. Mr. Miller, 55, runs Local 121, a restaurant favored among “buy local” diners, and also serves in the state Senate, where he leads a special commission to study marijuana prohibitions. The panel began hearings in January to discuss an overhaul of the state’s pot laws, starting with decriminalization of small amounts.

    As legislators across the U.S. struggle to rescue state budgets hammered by the recession, decriminalization is one idea gaining traction. Advocates say states could cut costs of policing, prosecuting and incarcerating offenders, and even raise money by taxing users.

    1. I have seen so many stories lately about decrim/medical/legal pot that I doubt anyone could keep up. Encouraging, that.

  4. What’s the bit of piano music at the start and end called? I like it.
