“Soft despotism is a term coined by Alexis de Tocqueville describing the state into which a country overrun by "a network of small complicated rules" might degrade. Soft despotism is different from despotism (also called 'hard despotism') in the sense that it is not obvious to the people."

The Daily White House Schedule of the Work Habit Challenged President Barack Hussein Obama

Before we begin, let’s pick the same date in time and see what President Ronald Reagan’s daily schedule looked like:

July 22, 1981

Now let’s wait and see what Barack Obama’s schedule is like today


  1. It seems the President has to go to his second floor residence to go to the bathroom.

    Can't they fix up some water closet downstairs somewhere?


    EI blogger who witnessed Palestinian Authority police beating protestor forced to destroy photos

    Electronic Intifada blogger Jalal Abukhater was forced to delete photos he took of Palestinian Authority (PA) police violently attacking a protestor in Ramallah on Sunday.

    Abukhater wrote this account of what he witnessed:

    After the police started pushing and beating protestors with sticks and batons, I managed to slip behind their line to be met with another line of police only a few meters behind. There, I was alone with my camera, I saw a guy lying on the ground being beaten by the police behind their line, I tried to take a picture but my camera was then confiscated.

    I was forced to delete all the pictures on my camera by the police, then my camera’s SD card was destroyed to pieces. The guy who was being beaten by the police managed to stand up – he was visibly bleeding – he was then slapped and dragged to the nearby police vehicle. However, he was released from detention and moved to a hospital for his injuries to be treated.

  3. This must be an error. Palestinians are moslems and Islam is the religion of peace. And how is it that the PA has police when they are occupied? I don't believe a word of it. It is Israeli propaganda.
