Whenever I see Obama deliver a speech, I have a visceral reaction unlike anything I’ve ever experienced without having first eaten something I should have left on my plate. It isn’t his politics, alone, that brings on the gag reflex; it’s the fact that he lies compulsively and then never acknowledges his lies when the facts inevitably show him to be lying.
For instance, when pushing the Affordable Care Act, he swore that it would save the typical family $2,500 and that if they chose to, they would be able to hang on to their doctor. As we now discover, those were blatant whoppers. On the other hand, how is it that anyone could actually believe that medical coverage could be extended to 30 million additional people and it would cost less?
As to the identity of those 30 million tragic souls, Obama never identified them. I did. They were illegal aliens and young people who preferred spending their money on drugs, booze and entertainment. In other words, they were some of the folks who populated Obama’s base.
The plain fact of the matter is that Barack Obama has waged class warfare ever since he was elected to the Illinois legislature. It is what the redistribution of wealth is all about. As it was envisioned and has been carried out by Obama, it takes from the middle class and gives to the poor. Marx and Lenin would be so proud.
It seems like every time you turn around, you hear about some school suspending a little kid for pretending a stick or his finger is a gun. You also hear about schools banning baseballs and footballs from the playground, further feminizing young boys. While they’re at it, they demonize competition and enforce a language code that makes English both anemic and basically dishonest.
The intended purpose of this female-imposed agenda is the transformation of American males into eunuchs. It’s a war that’s been waged by the members of NOW and their liberal cohorts for the past 40 years. It’s a war that is prolonged every time some gasbag like Nancy Pelosi or Hillary Clinton pats herself on the back for breaking through the glass ceiling, pretending that we exist in an Islamic society where women have no rights and no opportunities.
Although America began life in miraculous fashion, the likes of Washington, Franklin, Jefferson and Hamilton, serving as midwives, it is fast becoming the land of the craven and the home of the freeloader. The list of our vices is now even longer than our virtues. It has become commonplace for homosexuality to be seen as an acceptable life style. Fifty million abortions have taken place since Roe v. Wade, and most of us don’t even bat an eye.
Welfare and disability are gamed by millions of able-bodied people who feel they’re entitled to live off the efforts of others. Hordes of viewers tune in to TV talk shows and have their hearts touched by celebrities who brag about overcoming addictions to booze and drugs, and never bother asking why their pampered idols didn’t simply avoid the well-known pitfalls in the first place.
Illegitimacy is encouraged; the media promotes Marxism; wealthy actors promote the danger of global warming while flying in private jets; bureaucrats argue for higher taxes while failing to pay their own; the president closes military monuments and refuses to pay death benefits to military families while he plays golf on military bases; and the vice-president deals with the government shutdown by taking his grandkids to vacation at Camp David.
Although candidate Obama vowed to bring us all together, he and his henchmen take every opportunity to demonize Republicans, labeling them arsonists, extortionists, traitors and murderers. Well, you know what they say – if the shoe fits, throw it at the other guy.
When Muslim terrorist Abu Anas Al-Liby was captured, the first thing I heard was that this administration planned to try him in a criminal court, that the death penalty would not be on the table, and, rather than squeeze him for essential information, he would be allowed to lawyer-up after a one week boat ride to the U.S. Frankly, when it comes to national security, I’d feel a lot better if Moe, Larry and Curly, were on the job.
Speaking of big dopes, when it comes to Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, one might leap to the conclusion that Alzheimer’s had kicked in if not for the fact that she was just as dippy at 40 as she is at 80. In arguing for the extension of affirmative action in the case brought before the Supreme Court by the state of Michigan, Ginsburg said that racial considerations had to be taken into account in order to compensate for the political powerlessness of blacks. I suppose it’s just possible that she has failed to notice that the current president and attorney general, along with two of the past four secretaries of state, have been black.
If anyone feels politically powerless in America today and could desperately use some of that affirmative action, it’s conservatives.
As that old wag Plato once observed: “Those who are too smart to engage in politics are punished by being governed by those who are dumber.”
