Last November, Waco, Ga., businessman Bill Looman made national news when he put signs on the trucks he and his workers drive around in while working for U.S. Crane, LLC.
"New Company Policy -- We Are Not Hiring Until Obama's Gone"
When interviewed by local TV stations about this new policy, Looman played the poor country boy who really, really wanted to hire folks, but just couldn't do it because of that pesky Obama feller in the White House and his policies.
And that is how it was covered. Nationwide. Georgia businessman, beaten down by Obama. Poor lad.
A writer for Examiner.com thought there was more to the story. So he went online and found Bill Looman's Facebook profile.
Bill Looman the Third? No. Bill Looman, of the III%
Roughly three percent of the population fought for liberty at any given time during the American war for Independence. With a colonial population of 2,500,000 to 3,000,000 only about 250,000 men served during the war with never more than 90,000 men serving at any given time.
Historians have estimated that approximately 40-45% of the colonists supported the rebellion while 15-20% of the population of the thirteen colonies remained loyal to the British Crown. The remaining 35-45% attempted to remain neutral.
OK. Seems innocent enough. What do the III%'ers believe in?
The Oath Keepers and Three Percenters, both part of an anti-government extremist movement that has grown since President Obama took office, promote the idea that the federal government is plotting to take away the rights of American citizens and must be resisted. The two groups are apparently trying to make inroads in the U.S. military.
Oh, no! How do you take an oath to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States, and then take a stand against the very Constitutional Government you have sworn to preserve, protect and defend?
First, you have to hate President Obama. And that brings us to the Bill Looman Manifesto, as published on his Facebook Page.
(Sorry about the all-caps. That's how he writes.)
PRIOR TO THE ELECTIONS OF 2008, I PAID CLOSE ATTENTION TO THE PRIMARIES. MY GUT INSTINCT WAS THAT OUR NEW (UNKNOWN) DEMOCRATIC CANDIDATE WAS ACTUALLY A MUSLIM. A FOLLOWER OF ISLAM THAT DID NOT HAVE OUR COUNTRY'S BEST INTEREST IN MIND.
AFTER HIS ELECTION AND INAUGURATION, IT BECAME QUICKLY OBVIOUS, WITH THE RELEASE OF THE D. H. S. MEMO THAT STARTED RETRAINING THE AGENCIES PERSONNEL THAT VETERANS WERE LIKELY TO BE RECRUITED BY RIGHT WING FRINGE GROUPS. THAT MEMO WAS BLATANT AND OBVIOUS WRITTEN DOCUMENTATION THAT PROVED TO ME THAT THIS ADMINISTRATION WAS MOVING TOWARD TRYING TO CHANGE PUBLIC OPINION OF OUR MOST PATRIOTIC FACTION OF OUR SOCIETY AND PAINT THEM TO LOOK LIKE BAD PEOPLE THAT NEEDED TO BE FEARED BY LAW ENFORCEMENT AND EVENTUALLY THE REST OF THE COUNTRY. AS A MARINE VETERAN........ I TOOK THAT AS AN INSULT!
THAT MEMO BY ITSELF, MAY VERY WELL HAVE BEEN A MINOR HICCUP FOR THE ADMINISTRATION, IF HIS GROUP OF APPOINTEES HAD NOT ALSO STARTED TO TRY AND WHITEWASH THE REPUTATION OF THE GROUP THAT HAD ATTACKED OUR NATION ON 9/11. HE STARTED DICTATING THAT ISLAM WAS A MISUNDERSTOOD AND PEACEFUL RELIGION, THAT 9/11 ATTACKS WERE NOT A VILE ATTACK BUT A "MAN MADE DISASTER", AND THAT ISLAM WAS TO BE ASSIMILATED INTO OUR SOCIETY, WHETHER WE LIKED IT OR NOT.
HE ALSO ISSUED A SERIES OF EXECUTIVE ORDERS THAT MADE HIS HISTORICAL PRESENCE ON EARTH, OFF LIMITS TO THE PUBLIC AND SET THE PLAYING FIELD FOR EXECUTIVE RULE, BY HIM, THROUGH MARTIAL LAW. SIMILAR EXECUTIVE ORDERS WERE SIGNED BY JOHN F KENNEDY DURING THE "COLD WAR" ERA BECAUSE OF THE FEAR THAT RUSSIA AND THE UNITED STATES MAY ENGAGE IN A NUCLEAR EXCHANGE. THOSE SAME EXECUTIVE ORDERS WERE LATER SET ASIDE AS THE "COLD WAR" FEARS ABATED.
THOSE INITIAL STEPS THAT OUR NEW PRESIDENT TOOK, ALL PAINTED A PICTURE TO ME, THAT MADE IT OBVIOUS OF HIS TRUE INTENTIONS. FROM THAT POINT ON I PRAYED THAT I WAS WRONG AND JUST MISUNDERSTOOD WHAT HE WAS ATTEMPTING. THEN HE AND HIS ADMINISTRATION CONTINUED THAT HAMMER AMERICA WITH AND ONSLAUGHT OF LEGISLATION THAT WAS UNPOPULAR, ARROGANTLY INDICATED TO OUR LONG TIME ALLIES THAT HE COULD CARE LESS ABOUT OUR RELATIONSHIPS WITH THEM THAT HAD BEEN FORGED THROUGHOUT OUR HISTORY, AND HE WENT ON AN APOLOGY TOUR THROUGH THE MIDDLE EAST. HE ALSO DID ILLOGICAL THINGS SUCH AS SUE STATES IN HIS ATTEMPT TO KEEP THE SOUTHERN BORDERS OPEN FOR EASY ENTRY, SHUT DOWN PRODUCTION OF OIL OFF OF OUR SHORES, ATTEMPTED TO SLOW OUR ENERGY PRODUCTION THROUGH THE E. P. A. WHEN CAP AND TRADE LEGISLATION FAILED.... AND RUINED OUR ECONOMY ANY WAY HE COULD TO FURTHER BRING OUR COUNTRY TO ITS KNEES OR HUMBLE AMERICAN AND CHRISTIAN PRIDE.
JUST AFTER I READ EXECUTIVE ORDERS THAT HE HAD SIGNED, PUTTING IN PLACE POWERS THAT HE COULD EASILY ASSUME THROUGH MARTIAL LAW, I STARTED TO GET PREPARED. THE FOLLOWING LIST ARE SOME OF THE THINGS I HAVE DONE TO PREPARE MYSELF, MY FAMILY, MY COMMUNITY, AND YES..... EVEN MY HOME STATE OF GEORGIA.
START SEEKING AND NETWORKING WITH PATRIOTS OF LIKE MIND. SEEK OUT AND FORGE FRIENDSHIPS WITH SURVIVAL SKILLS. THIS INCLUDED GROUPS SUCH AS OATH KEEPERS, MILITIAS, AND POLITICAL GROUPS THAT APPEARED TO HAVE OUR FOUNDING FATHERS CORE MESSAGE AND CONSTITUTION IN THEIR BASIC PHILOSOPHY. BUILT AND STOCKED A FISH POND. STARTED STORING FOOD. SELLING WEAPONS THAT WERE COOL BUT WERE ODD CALIBERS AND WOULD BE HARD TO GET AMMUNITION FOR. BOUGHT NEW WEAPONS TO REPLACE THE ONES I SOLD AND STOCK PILED AMMUNITION. HONED MY HUNTING SKILLS AND LEARNED HOW TO COMPLETELY PROCESS ALL MY CATCH. PERFORMED NEEDED MAINTENANCE ON MY HOME. BECAME POLITICALLY ACTIVE IN MY COMMUNITY AND STARTED TO FORGE FRIENDSHIPS WITH OLD AND NEW FRIENDS THAT HAD SKILLS THAT MAY BE NEEDED IN THE FUTURE.
STARTED FURTHER TRAINING OTHERS AS THEY APPEARED WAKE UP TO PRESIDENTS PERCEIVED INTENTIONS WITH MARKSMANSHIP TRAINING, POLITICAL DISCUSSIONS, AND YES, EVEN RELIGIOUS DISCUSSIONS. DIVESTED IN STOCKS AND PURCHASED MORE PROPERTY. DIVESTED IN RETIREMENT FUNDS AND MOVED THE MONEY TO SAVINGS TO PROTECT AGAINST WALL STREET VOLATILITY.
PURCHASED AN EMERGENCY POWER SOURCE AND AND FUEL TO SUPPLY THAT SOURCE. THIS POWER SOURCE WILL BE USED TO DRAW WATER FROM OUR WELL AND KEEP OUR COLD STORAGE RUNNING FOR AS LONG AS FEASIBLE.
AS I OBSERVE THE FURTHER ACTIONS OF THIS ADMINISTRATION, I HAVE BECOME MORE SURE THAT MY "GUT INSTINCT" WAS CORRECT. I ALSO HAVE NEVER BEEN MORE ANGRY AT MYSELF FOR BEING RIGHT! WHY HAS HE TAKEN OUR COUNTRY IN THIS DIRECTION? MY ANSWER IS SIMPLE........ HE HAS BEEN TRAINED FOR THIS AND HE IS A MARXIST/ISLAMIC TOOL TO TEAR APART OUR ONCE GREAT NATION.
SO IN LIGHT OF WHAT I HAVE WRITTEN, DONE FOR OVER 2 YEARS, I DARE YOU TO PREPARE AND PROTECT YOUR FAMILY, FRIENDS, AND COUNTRY. OUR FOUNDERS WOULD HAVE BEEN DONE BY NOW..... SO THE T SHIRT SAYS!
But what does any of this have to do with Obama's economic policies? Why do you have to put signs on your pickup trucks and drive around and tell TV stations that you would like to hire people but it's that Bad Old Obama's policies keeping you from doing so?
Or, was that even the point of it? Could it be, instead, that the point of the whole exercise is to train and prepare "fellow patriots" for the eventual armed struggle against the Islamic, Obamic, Kenyan, Muslim Forces of Evil?
