Should Obama Blow The Silver Horn The Founding Fathers Left In Case The Country Ever Needed Them?

This is great! If Obama blew the horn, the first act of the Founders would be to beat him to slag.

I remember when Elric blew the Horn Of Fate and that didn't turn out so well. Other than that I enjoyed the "top news" ticker at the bottom of the screen

1. Hussein don't listen to no old dead white men. He sent Churchill's bust back, and Winnie was as close as we got to the Founding Fathers in the 20th Century.

2. If they showed up, summoned or not, the Founding Fathers would stare at us like the morons we are, and say: "We gave you a good plan of government, it is called the Constitution, why don't you try to follow it. And no, we do not care what your Supreme Court has said, they are a gaggle of black robed fools. Ignore them."

In Robert Jordan's epic fantasy saga, "The Wheel of Time", there is a horn called the Horn of Valere that is specifically crafted to call the heroes of the Ages to come back to life to fight with the Dragon Reborn in the Last Battle against the Dark One. It is inscribed with the following: "The Grave is No Bar to My Call."

Within the context of the story, it is revealed at one point that it would work for both the forces of Shadow and the Light, but in the end, the main hero, Artur Hawkwing (a.k.a. King Arthur) says that they would ONLY return to fight for the Dragon and the Light.

I won't spoil the ending of who actually blows the Horn of Valere, but it is an absolute tear-jerker and, of course, ends up saving the world.

If Obama were to blow such a horn, it would not go well for him (seeing as he is a creature of the Shadow).

This is no joke, the horn does exist and it WILL work!

The mouthpiece is coated with cyanide.

The only horn that Obama wants belongs to Reggie.
