A response to B . Obama’s Inaugural Address
by Boldarn Jan.21,2009
Challenging times will leave us with this choice :
Will we have a liberated society or Agenda 21 ?
The speech can fit both , but we can only have one !
Will it be the Military-Industrial-Complex and mandatory draft registration ?
Or POWER TO THE PEOPLE for human rights , justice and freedom !
Divorce Codex , Fluoridation , the FDA , CIA ,the WHO and mandatory vaccination.
Legalize and support all natural medication .
Outlaw nuclear , biological and chemical war ,
Imposed on mankind in the name of the law and political correctness .
Agenda 21 will be tempting to a populace in despair
As corruption of power causes turmoil everywhere.
But behind the shining door of hope,
May lie your ultimate prison with a hanging rope :
The New World Order Plan for once free nations .
Abolish the NWO and AGENDA 21.
This is the change that serves the people in peace and freedom
And the task entrusted on you .,
Our new President to guide us as a free Nation .
May you and the people have the substance
Quote by Nelson Mandela :
Sometimes a generation is called upon to be great .
You can be that great generation .

As long as I cause no harm, I have the constitutional right to pursue happiness.
Problem is, this "war on drugs", and the governments contorted view on how I choose to be happy.
Since the economy's gone in the dumper, along with my job, and let me tell you, being number 147, on the list for 1 job, aint my idea of happiness.
We all need to sit down and come to an agreement on the governments idea of happiness, and everyone else's.
To be eligible for office a candidate should have to take a test on the constitution, a really long test, and take annual "refresher" courses, along with more tests.
And they must pass an aptitude test also.
A PHD in accounting should also be a prerequisite.
And must submit to random lie detector tests too.
If they have nothing to hide, they have nothing to worry about.
It's up to us to tell the government to, knock this drug war crap, off. We're tired of the wasted money on a failed concept.
They don't have enough sense to know when they're doing bad, we must show them, otherwise they're stuck on stupid, and we suffer.
