Proposal

Okay, so I've had this idea about writing as if Obama has already saved the world. So we can talk about all the (as of yet) fictional achievements he's made.

Proposal

Alternative to the above, we talk about his presidency and how it takes us closer to an Orwellian type totalitarian government. Obama is a socialist, grew up socialist, grew up Muslim, thinks this and that and all that jazz. Of course, we'll be totally contradictory. "Not only did Obama spend the first twelve years of his life in Indonesia, he also spent them in Hawaiian terrorist camps while also being enlisted in Iraqi terror camps full time."

  2. For This would be the easiest to write and to add on to. I would also suggest if we do take this angle to mention his "total control over the media" in some way. Kind of like an ultra-conservative point of view, taken to its most absurd extreme. Especially if we were to suggest he somehow controls all the news flows: radio, TV, newspapers AND of course the internet. -- Simsilikesims(♀UN) Talk here. 02:51, 13 April 2009 (UTC)

  • Abstaining is regularly done in the comments section. More on the subject, we could combine this with my proposal, i.e. Great Leader Obama spent his early years revolting against heretic capitalist regimes... and then talk about how he took over the world and supposedly made it better.

    • I disagree. This idea is basically an attempt to smear Obama, as is the other one. Your idea is to present him as the media's godchild, essentially putting him at the opposite extreme. Sir SysRq (talk) 02:02, 13 April 2009 (UTC)
Proposal

Another alternative. Focusing on the biblical aspect of it instead of the political, we compare Obama to the antichrist, citing all kinds of made up Bible verses and just gettin' all kinds of crazy. "And yea, God said to Moses, "Ye must beware of the wicked dissenters. I will favor any nation with a WASP at it's head, but should any nation elect a black man to lead them I will turn my back on them, for they are given over to the Devil and his ways."

  1. Against Most articles about black vs white end up FUBARed by constant hate edits ruining the humor of the thing. Not to mention it would almost certainly be offensive to the religious-minded and to blacks. It would be hard to maintain in good condition with this idea. On the other hand, the idea of God being Republican and condemning a nation with a Democrat president might work. -- Simsilikesims(♀UN) Talk here. 02:59, 13 April 2009 (UTC)

edit Concerning the present concepts

I see there are about three main questions we should ask ourselves:

  • Are we going to talk about the future (predictions/as if it already happened) in detail or not?
  • Do we want to portray Obama in a positive or a negative way? Maybe superficially positive but leave nuances of a dark future?
  • What should we associate Obama with? Islam? Communism? Totalitarianism? Fascism? Messianic prophecies? A combination of those?

Sir SockySexy girls Mermaid with dolphin Tired Marilyn Monroe (talk) (stalk)Magnemite Icons-flag-be GUN SotM UotM PMotM UotY PotM WotM 02:13, 13 April 2009 (UTC)

IMO, Obama's presidency is a "near future", so predictions and shit will be outdated this year or the following... I say we concentrate on his past history and write the article from conspiracy theorist-ic POV, obviously portraying him negatively. And since it's written by conspiracy theorists, we can associate him with all the said things, you know, we can issue several theories; one about him being a terrorist muslim, a communist, a facsist totalitarian dictator and the biblical beast number 6-threescore-6. Also, these theories do not contradict each others.. Umm, what do you say, socky? SIRE FREDDMOOSHA Flag of Egypt AMUSE ME 09:43, 13 April 2009 (UTC)
It's not a bad idea, though the article may be easier to pull off if we focus on a few aspects, possibly combining them. Sir SockySexy girls Mermaid with dolphin Tired Marilyn Monroe (talk) (stalk)Magnemite Icons-flag-be GUN SotM UotM PMotM UotY PotM WotM 09:48, 13 April 2009 (UTC)
exactly, and as I have just said, they don't contradict, so they can easily be combined.. SIRE FREDDMOOSHA Flag of Egypt AMUSE ME 09:56, 13 April 2009 (UTC)

edit Considering all the above statements

It seems to me that probably the best concept would be a combination of my and SysRq's first proposals, with which I mean the following:

  • We talk as if Obama has already taken over the world. And it comes down to something like "Obama's presidency initially appeared like a divine blessing, but it turned out to be a dreadful curse." So first we speak about some good stuff he did (like the stuff he's planning to do in real life) and then we can explain how this apparently good stuff led to the downfall of humanity under Obama's reign. Sir SockySexy girls Mermaid with dolphin Tired Marilyn Monroe (talk) (stalk)Magnemite Icons-flag-be GUN SotM UotM PMotM UotY PotM WotM 10:09, 13 April 2009 (UTC)
oh shit. Ok, I agree. Scratch my proposal. SIRE FREDDMOOSHA Flag of Egypt AMUSE ME 10:19, 13 April 2009 (UTC)
We could still put some Islam and/or Communism in the article, but we can decide on that when we are working on the article. Sir SockySexy girls Mermaid with dolphin Tired Marilyn Monroe (talk) (stalk)Magnemite Icons-flag-be GUN SotM UotM PMotM UotY PotM WotM 10:23, 13 April 2009 (UTC)
if we work according your "considering all the above statements" proposal, we can insert islam, antichrist-ism, totalitarianism and/or communism in the second part of the story, when his apparently good deeds reforms begin to show their evil. Also, note that the mayan prophecy of the 30 Dec 2012 sunflare occurs at the end of his first term.. Potential for apocalyptic shit. SIRE FREDDMOOSHA Flag of Egypt AMUSE ME 14:18, 13 April 2009 (UTC)
Holy crap, it does? Let's see 2009...2010....1011....2012! You're right! AAAAAAA!!!! That's a good idea though. IS NICE.--SBQ3.JPGSmokin' Cheddar BBQ: The King of the Triangular Snackfoods 13:00, 18 April 2009 (UTC)

edit So, do we agree on the concept?

Then let's start writing. Sir SockySexy girls Mermaid with dolphin Tired Marilyn Monroe (talk) (stalk)Magnemite Icons-flag-be GUN SotM UotM PMotM UotY PotM WotM 19:04, 15 April 2009 (UTC)

please sum up the concept in the highest level of detail possible, so we all know what direction to go in. SirGerrycheeversGunTalk 19:10, 15 April 2009 (UTC)

Our basic concept is how Obama will lead us into an Orwellian totalitarianism. The basic outline is as follows, section per section:

  • Introduction: We say some simple stuff about Obama and how he's leading his totalitarian state. (We write it as if it's already become reality.)
  • Early life: We talk about how he grew up. We add in some Socialism and some Communism. He's also confronted with a lot of religions, thus developing a greater insight in religion in general. We imply that this all contributed to his would-be dictatorship.
  • We don't really need to talk much about his political life before he began his run for the presidency.
  • Rise to power: We say how he convinced everyone he would bring us the change we need(ed).
  • Establishment of a totalitarian regime: We explain how he established a global totalitarian state. (He probably organised some global alliance and under his leadership it ended up becoming more and more totalitarian.)
  • Maybe we want to talk about his 'current' personal life, probably though his whereabouts have become a complete mystery. Maybe we don't even know whether he's still really alive. (In 1984, Goldstein's book says "We may be reasonably sure that he will never die, and there is already considerable uncertainty as to when he was born.")
  • Cultural image: When he became president, he was a hero. Now, everyone is terrified of his image. Maybe we can also write something about everyone being forced into a "love ritual", an "act of worship" towards Obama.
  • Maybe we can end the article with a note from the supposed writer of the article. Similarly to how The Theory and Practice of Oligarchical Collectivism wasn't actually written by a man named Emmanuel Goldstein.

oh, you mean this guy. SirGerrycheeversGunTalk 20:55, 15 April 2009 (UTC)
on a more serious note, if this is the direction we're going with the article, i think we should avoid anything from the future, or how we're all currently cowering in fear of him, etc. he hasn't established any kind of regimes yet. we should subtly hint that he is heading us in that direction. you know, spin his actions thus far as president as slented towards totali-whateverism, but not 'omg obama is stalin and he told me exactly how to wash my car' or other such absurdities. SirGerrycheeversGunTalk 21:06, 15 April 2009 (UTC)

ya, thats better Mahm00shA 21:54, 15 April 2009 (UTC)
Wait, what exactly do you mean for the Rise To Power?

edit Style

Are we going to write this as if he has a cult of personality, or are we going to write it as if we're some underground resistance? Saberwolf116 13:10, 16 April 2009 (UTC)

it seems we're going with an encyclopedic tone, describing obama as a president on the road to completely controlling everything about the US. we'll try to mirror what his wikipedia page has to say, spinning it in that direction. SirGerrycheeversGunTalk 14:02, 16 April 2009 (UTC)
isnt it about time to try something original; something new? Mahm00shA 15:39, 16 April 2009 (UTC)

If we're writing as if it's gonna happen, won't it be obsolete in a few years? Saberwolf116 21:53, 16 April 2009 (UTC)

so far, very little. we seem to be stuck in a rut after nearly two weeks. however, i'm willing to brush off the lack of activity as conservation week-induced, since i've been focusing most of my creative effort on that the last two weeks rather than colonization, and i assume you all have too. anyway, i formally propose that we extend barack's term another four years one week to 5/2, since next week we won't have rewriting extravaganzas to worry about, and we can focus on colonizing once more.

What'll happen if it's not perfected in 4 days? Like, I think I can get it written, but I'm gonna get a pic shopped, which might take longer. I feel really incompetent seeing other guys finish 10 amazing articles in the time it takes me to write 1 good one. (Ex. Guildy wrote Trogdor the Burninator in 1 day and got it featured in 4. HowTo:Get Over Jenny, my only featured article, took me about 1.5 months to finish, with pics and all.).--SBQ3.JPGSmokin' Cheddar BBQ: The King of the Triangular Snackfoods 20:06, 23 April 2009 (UTC)
do not worry, my snack-enjoying chum. i too once fretted over such things, but the truth is: don't worry about that stuff. rewrites do not need to be perfect #1 featured articles, they merely need to be improved versions of existing articles. as for time deadlines: some of the best advice i ever got was 'try writing one article before the end of whenever.' i.e., take your time! i have written some good stuff quickly, but most of the work i'm proudest of has taken waaay long, oftentimes much more than one or two months. so write at your own pace, and most of all: have fun with it! if uncyclopedia is stressing you out, ur doin it rong.

edit let's finish this

okay, we've been putting this off long enough. i'm going to polish this one off today, though i don't like much of it as it is, so i'll probably be changing a lot of things. SirGerrycheeversGunTalk 16:20, 1 May 2009 (UTC)

edit other intro

Barack Hussein Obama II is the current Dictator of the Global Alliance. All hail the Glorious Leader! Before he rose to power, we were a troubled people. Different countries fighting, corrupt and unattractive politicians cheating the people of our great global state, people in poverty stricken areas like Africa scarcely had enough to eat or drink as disease ravaged the land. Indeed, even The Jonas Brothers were still popular in those dark and desperate times. Now thanks to Obama, every family on Earth has food to eat, water to drink, and plenty of Barack O Bills in their wallets as we stand in unity under our fair and kind leader’s banner.

i removed the other introduction, but i've reproduced it here so we can use its ideas elsewhere in the article. SirGerrycheeversGunTalk 16:21, 1 May 2009 (UTC)

edit The Future

Though my initial concept was quite different, I now fully support the way this article is progressing. Maybe we can keep some of the future stuff that's written as if it takes place in the present in the form of what some conservatives foresee in relation to Obama's reign. Like a caption with that Tiananmen Square parody picture reading "Several conservative politicians predict that Obama will reform the American nation into a communist state like present-day China." For the most part though, subtly hinting things is the way to go.

Could you be a little more specific please? What don't you like about the changes? Was there a specific thing you wanted to work in?

Icons-flag-us CUN14:24, 2 May
yea, i'm sorry if i stepped on anyone's toes or anything like that, but a lot of the existing stuff didn't fit well with the other existing stuff. please note that we will be going back through the history to put much of it back in at the appropriate section; for example, i think the 'patended obama cams' was brilliant, but i thought it would probably work better as something he perfected while president.

Here's the paragraph if you want to mess around with it:

Obama wasn't anything special or extraordinary in his early life. In reality, he was a failure. He was less than average at school, and failed miserably at rapping. He also tried basketball, baseball and even soccer, but he fell right on his face, literally, each time. This led him to pursue a political career, as it is the only kind of career where dorks can succeed. He, as a dork, excelled at politics, and quickly ascended the ladder until he became a state senator. There, he began his practice for becoming a dictator. Under the reign of King Blagojevich III, he spread the wealth around his district, leading communities and churches to lasting prosperity under the watchful eye of the patented Obama Cams®.

I see no reason you shouldn't be able to work that into the early life section. In particular, I think it could replace the bit about being in multiple terrorist camps at once which seems a little random and unfunny to me. I also like the Obama Cam thing, I think we should establish that he started experimenting with them early and perfected the art as president. I think this article's at it's best when it sounds very Orwellian, and hidden cams fall right in line with that. -OptyC Sucks! Icons-flag-us CUN15:32, 2 May
I'll see what I can do. Saberwolf116 16:54, 2 May 2009 (UTC)
Hmm, well I can't figure out where to put it without screwing the context up. Wanna help out? Saberwolf116 17:00, 2 May 2009 (UTC)

edit So now that we're done

How does it look? IMO, it looks short. Well, written, but short. We might need a bit more time... Saberwolf116 15:10, 3 May 2009 (UTC)

dont you worry about the article being short, my friend. As soon as this one hits mainspace-- well you know how much traffic an article about the president gets. My point is, we lay the foundations and non-vandal IP's and users do the expansion. Egypt_orb_spinning.gif 15:41, 3 May 2009 (UTC)
If you say so. I'm pretty sure those Andrew "HE WAS BORN IN KENYA" Schalfy Conservapedians will vandalize this, though... Saberwolf116 19:39, 3 May 2009 (UTC)
