Used By Permission..Summation of the Current Administration

I think this blogger’s comment sums up the current administration quite nicely.

Matt, I don’t think yours is simply another perspective, I think it’s an invaluable perspective. Your piece honors some very honorable people. Heroes? To me, many are. You’ll sleep good tonight knowing that this had to be written. I salute you.

As to the oil spill, yesterday I started looking at it from a different perspective. I saw it kind of as a metaphor for the total screw up that I believe is the Obama administration. It’s long. But it’s got a thread throughout that I think hands together pretty well.

If you have the time to read it, let me know what you think. Rach

HEADLINE:

I ask you to visualize the gushing undersea oil spill as I attempt to explain Obama.

I was sitting in the service department of a car dealer yesterday watching some putrid CNN type channel, looking at all the oil oozing out of the broken pipe, and suddenly everything became clearer. I don’t mean suddenly I had the ability to explain why the sound of Kelly Tilghman’s voice makes me turn off the golf channel. But all of a sudden, I began to understand why Barack Obama makes me sick.

You see, when I watched that gushing oil flow, the biggest and most avoidable environmental disaster in the history of America, it made me think of other Obama blights weighing down this nation. For example, I was reminded of all the taxpayer money Obama’s squandered, imagining nicely packed wads of taxpayer money gushing through a black hole. I felt disgusted; sick; like I’d just drunk a half glass of the heavy black stuff.

And I blamed Obama who opened the money valve way back in the Stimulus Lying Days of 2009 and, in the name of heading off more than 8% unemployment, for letting it wastefully gush forth. Down a bottomless pit. Day after day, much like the oil pollutes the waters around the southern United States, Obama’s money spill is killing the chances of our children to know their American Dream; to have a better life than we did. In the name of global governance, Obama is destroying the American dream. The interest on the trillions gushing out of Obama’s black hole effectively sinks our children’s chances of having a better life than we did. And as they get older, they’ll realize that Obama’s financial draining of America has delt a death blow to Midicare. And Social Security. The trillion upon trillion of taxpayer-wasted-dollars that is ObamaCare is destined not just to ruin the world’s best health care system, but one day to eviscerate the American economy. You see, just around the corner, many economists believe, is hyperinflation. Which not only will make American dollars almost worthless, but will be the depression Obama said he had avoided.

Bottom line, Obama’s financial schemes are killing free enterprise. He’s letting its vibrance and life seep away. His takeovers mean the days of a robust private enterprise economy are done for. Obama did the equivalent of taking an AK-47 Russian assault rifle and riddled every profit motive he could find, which is the only real and lasting way to create jobs. Barack, let’s remember, is a graduate of the Saul Alinsky school of Communism that teaches you how to destroy capitalism. He learned his lessons well, doing the exact opposite of what this country needed and needs, and he smiles and laughs and says we should be thanking him for killing us.

Connie Mack is wrong on Az immigration bill

In an article published in the Washington Post he opposes Arizona’s new immigration law, and compares it to the Japanese internment during WWII.  Don’t know the guy, only know he calls himself a Republican.  But after reading his article in the Washington Post, I know enough about him to pass judgment.  He is either a mental midget, or he is pandering to his hispanic constituents (his Florida 14th District includes Ft. Myers). 

Recall it was the Progressives under FDR who interned the Japanese.  But likening asking for papers of a person who is already detained on suspicion of a crime is akin to likening an M80 firecracker to a nuke:  About the only thing they have in common is they both make a large bang. 

He pulls out the “wise old saying” in hopes of shoring up his weak argument:  ” As the wise saying goes, he who sacrifices freedom for security ends up with neither.” 

Here’s a clue, Congressman.  Your constituents, legal American citizens, can’t even fly on a plane, or drive a car, or probably even enter the halls of Congress without “showing their papers.”   If I get pulled over for speeding, I have to “show my papers.”  If you hadn’t been chauffeured around for so many years perhaps you’d remember the dreaded phrase, “License and registration, please.”  We have to show our birth certificate in Virginia if our operator’s permit lapses, for Gawd’s sake. 

His final, last gasp:  “I do not want to live in a nation where American citizens are asked “Where are your papers?” We are better than that.”  Better than that? We already live in such a place.  Try leaving this country for Mexico or even Canada without “papers.”  Try getting on a plane, try getting in line to shake the President’s hand without “papers.”  Good luck with that.

“Forward, the Light Brigade!”
Was there a man dismay’d?
Not tho’ the soldier knew
Someone had blunder’d:
Theirs not to make reply,
Theirs not to reason why,
Theirs but to do and die:
Into the valley of Death
Rode the six hundred.
