And so we scamper toward another end of the year. If there's something more Americans like at the end of the year than reading lists, it is creating lists. Although I only started blogging last July, here are the top ten blog posts from Random Thoughts Of A Random Guy From A Random Place Up In The Sky for 2011:

"Obama: Extra Judicial Mass Murderer" was by far the most popular blog in terms of page views. I'm pleased as I feel it is one of my best works.

"JFK CONSPIRACY-The Proof Is In The Warren Report" was one of two postings concerning the 48th anniversary of JFK's assassination.

"The Strange And Deadly Journey Of Navy Seal Team 6" while placing third was certainly first in the amount of comments it generated. It is one of my best on-the-spot postings.

"In Short, A Stark Raving Theatre Brief" is my theatre memoir about the halcyon days of Stark Raving Theatre. Informative and historical, as they say.

"Presidents Who Owned People" was my personal favorite. Pictures and history! I got the idea after reading a well researched article about our Presidents.

"Wall Street Protests News Blackout Disinformation" was one of those "I can't believe people are falling for this" postings. The interweb was abuzz with how MSM was blacking out the Occupy protests, which was completely untrue. So, this was my most informative essay toppling nasty rumors.

"Why I Won't Vote For Barack Obama Again" now here's a posting that will be used for the next 11 months!

"What If There Was A Book About You And You Didn't Know It?" oh, by far the most surprising thing to have found on the interweb. Yes, Big Brother is watching you and he wants to make a few bucks off of you, too.

"Random Thoughts..." is the only fiction posting to have made the list (which tears a little bit at the original writer in me).

"Shooting On A Shoestring Budget, Part 2" was part of a series of postings I wrote regarding the shooting of that fabulous new short film, "Our Neighbors"!

Why Obama Wants To Veto The NDAA And Won't

There has been a great hue and cry, mostly from the left, over last week's Senate vote on the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA). The usual Facebook petitions and calls to your congressperson sprang up rather quickly after the passage in the democratic controlled Senate by an astounding 93 to 7 vote. Most of these were imploring President Obama to veto the bill; which he said he would when it reaches his desk. As usual, when it comes to Obama, there is more to this story than meets the eye.

Senator Lindsey Graham (Republican from South Carolina) declared: “If you’re an American citizen and you betray your country, you’re going to be held in military custody and you’re going to be questioned about what you know, and you’re not going to be given a lawyer if our national security interests dictate that you not be given a lawyer.” Yeeeee-ikes! Thankfully, there are plenty of articles which point out the real reason for the Obama veto threat and that reason is the matter of the continuing battle between the Judicial and Executive branches and has nothing to do with protecting your precious freedoms.

President Obama has already staked out his claim as extra-judicial mass murderer-in-chief and the proposed legislation is infringing upon his territory. In essence, Congress wants to codify the Executive branch illegalities which would place Obama and Company under legal restrictions it does not want! His veto is merely a threat because it can be easily overrode unless, of course, he chooses to use the pocket veto.

So, there you have it. What you don't have: any debate or statements in Congress, by the President or in the MSM defending the Constitution! They certainly don't want the American public at large to realize that they truly want to destroy the 4th, 5th and 6th Amendments.

Don't you Obama loyalists realize he takes your blind, ignorant, apologist support for granted? Obama gives you loyalists no credit for the intellectual capacity to realize the true nature of his decisions. The folks at Reader Supported News (RSN) are all over the true nature of this so-called fight and point out the craven nature of both the Obama administration and Congress.

Obama did not veto the bill since there was some mild language changes. So, buckle up, America! It's time to drive into the abyss of no Bill of Rights!
