Obamassiah's Takeover Starting Early
We have all heard by now how Barack (his middle name is not Hussein) Obamassiah's campaign motto is "Change". He promotes change for change sake. He wants to change everything and in some cases change nothing.
But, now that he has wrapped up the Democrat(ic) presidential nomination by being the most accomplished and experienced Pro-American candidate (cough, cough, gag, cough), he has now decided to start making his changes.
What exactly has he decided to make his first change? See here.
A new seal debuted on Obama's podium Friday, sporting iconography used in the U.S. presidential seal, the blue background, the eagle clutching arrows on left and olive branch on right, but with symbolic differences. Instead of the Latin "E pluribus unum" (Out of many, one), Obama's says "Vero possumus", rough Latin for "Yes, we can." Instead of "Seal of the President of the United States", Obama's Web site address is listed. And instead of a shield, Obama's eagle wears his "O" campaign logo with a rising sun representing hope ahead.
The Rising Sun flag of Japan is a red disk on a white field, called Hinomaru in Japanese. It has been Japan's flag since 1870, but after World War II, the government decided not to recognize it as a national flag. For the next fifty years, Japan was officially flagless. In 1999, the Hinomaru regained its official sanction with the support of the ruling Liberal Democratic Party, amid the vocal protests of opposition parties who believed it to be an outdated symbol of the Japanese Empire. Now, the Rising Sun can be seen flying over buildings all across Japan.
This flag is not to be confused with Japan's naval ensign, which was seen most extensively during World War II and features red and white sunbursts emanating from the disk in the center. Displaying that flag is very politically incorrect in modern Japan, although some people are still fond of it.
