The eerie discovery described here and this post itself originated with my good friend “J. B. O’Rourke”. He occasionally lurks here so he is familiar with you idiots.
I’m sure I asked him if he was drunk when he came up with this and I think he said yes. Oddly enough I was drunk when I asked him. The rest of this post are the words of Mr. O’Rourke.
On March 3rd, 2009 our new President decided to become an investment advisor:
Besides the (frighteningly) clueless fumbling of the term “price-to-earnings ratio”, it offended me that any President would try to call a bottom to our stock market which had fallen for 17 months. It smacked of arrogance and government intervention.
The market (S&P 500) did happen to bottom three days later, midday on March 6th. At 666 points. It was down from 1,586 in October of 2008, a month prior to Obama’s election.
666 in our culture is not a healthy number to mark the beginning of a market recovery but Obama owns it. At the time, the number 666 struck me as significant, not as the mark of the antichrist but as the Hebrew code for the worst Roman Emperor, Nero.
Over Obama’s term, a comparison to Nero has proved to be fitting. Many people have noted the similarities between his voting “present” leadership style and disdain for America and Nero’s historical lack of concern over the fate of Rome while it was in incendia.
If you Google “Nero and Obama” you will get 17,700,000 results along the lines of “Nero’s Fiddle and Obama’s Golf Clubs” and “Obama Plays Hoops while the Middle East Burns”.
So I began to question whether Obama actually views himself as an Emperor who, according to his right hand woman Valerie Jarrett, had taken power and begun to rule .
After thinking along these lines for two plus years, it occurred to me recently that Obama’s full name contained the letters forming the word “Nero” which is pretty interesting.
As I thought more about that, I went back and looked at the name again. What I discovered was an anagram that gave me chills.
BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA
I NERO AM BACK BASH USA
After putting this together and trying to decide what it meant, I had several vodka tonics and came to the conclusion that I needed more vodka.
I’ll be happy to see what you smart people think in the comments.
