I have nothing good to say and I will keep saying it. If the American way of life is worth fighting for, then it's high time to fight. And that means getting mean. Plumb mad dog mean.
Because if we give up, America neither lives nor wins. That's just the way it is.
The bottom line is this: the recent stimulus package coupled with the coming budget bill will not only tax all accomplishment in a fashion that will reduce the incentive to accomplish anything, it will create a mass army of even more pencil pushing and mouse clicking bureaucrats and lawyers who will pounce on whatever small number of motivated folks are remaining. These smarmy government employees will relish their role as success killers -- assuaging their wealth envy instincts while desperately trying to justify their existence to whatever Obama machine commissar they work for.
(My own business has been under attack from these folks. This is more than an academic theory to many who own businesses).
And there will be so damned many of them who vote that they will likely hold political power for a long long time. This is how one organizes a community.
And over this long period of time, this government economy will swallow itself. While everybody wants a government job or a government education loan or a government health and retirement plan, there won't be anyone left to produce anything that pays for all of this stuff.
Our government schools and media and Democrat politicians (and too many Republican politicians) have convinced much of the population that the business people who had "the audacity of success" are everyone's enemy. These populist rants by both parties have diverted the voters' attention away from how much freedom our government is killing and has focused in on the producers and achievers of the land as targets. A population quick to hate those more successful than themselves has bought in eagerly and ignorantly, not realizing that someone's success has paved the way for their very jobs.
If you work hard and are successful, now you will not only be resented and hated, your chances of being taxed into mediocrity or sued by some government bureaucracy have just gone way way up. Are you having fun yet?
This has resulted in anything but an environment that fosters success. This environment fosters folks hanging around college til they are 30 when they finally try to go get a job somewhere that will allow them to retire with full bennies when they're 50. Do we really think this is anyway to have a dynamic economy with liberty and the pursuit of happiness? It's mediocrity with the pursuit of double latte.
And all of this unhappy change has its groundwork set, simply, in the stimulus bill and the omnibus spending bill that is pending. This doesn't even include the employee free choice act and more healthcare legislation to come. Those will simply speed up the demise of the American way of life that is already underway.
The Obama team knows what they're doing. They know if it ever sinks in, folks will fight it. Unless it's too late. When they get more than 50% of the nation dependent on their new economy, they have us. Why do you think they are rushing all of this through?
Barack Obama and the Pelosi-Reid leftist juggernaut will have turned our nation into a textbook socialist republic faster than you can name the 57 states. There is nothing short of an all out legislative assault on our entire way of life and on the very spirit of what made our nation exceptional. Our Congress, riding Obama's coattails, has destroyed more freedom at home in a month than our military gained abroad since 2001.
In short, provisions in the stimulus and the new budget bills take away freedom to make money, to spend money and even to give away money. And it's all done for one purpose. To give the government more control to make, spend and distribute money.
And this rapidly descending snowball from hell will not be sidetracked if elected leaders of the Republican Party continue to be scared away from attacking Obama because of his approval ratings. Did it ever dawn on these geniuses that perhaps his ratings are high because no one ever attacks him?
The word "Change" is a curious one. In politics it is most often used in the context of "Time for a Change." It speaks to the periodic need to throw the rascals out. But in left-speak it means something more. It evokes the need for "social change" or "transformative change." Change in this sense means the secular hope for salvation in this world that the left substitutes for the transcendental hope of religion.
Conservatives do not subscribe to the notion of secular salvation. We believe that salvation only comes in the next world. So we don't need to inject transcendental hope into politics. We think in terms of Reform, not Change.
We've seen, in the last month what Change means. It means shoveling taxpayers' money at the Democratic base to bail out the Democratic state and local governments that overspent in the boom, and to bail out Democratic homeowners who bought houses they couldn't afford.
The next version of Republican Reform better be different. It needs to start from rock-solid conservative principles.
A narcissist is a pond pretending to be an ocean.
Obama's early life was decidedly chaotic and replete with traumatic and mentally bruising dislocations. Mixed-race marriages were even less common then. His parents went through a divorce when he was an infant (two years old). Obama saw his father only once again, before he died in a car accident. I have a question. If Obama and Dunham were really married, how could a marrtiage license be issued to a man who was already married, not divorced from his wife? Did Obama's father lie to the authorities about that and other things to get into school in the US? Where was the marriage license issued? Or was it more a "common law" marriage if it was any "marriage" at all? Where was the "divorce" finalized and as a matter of public record let's see it!
Bragging and false autobiography вЂ“ The narcissist brags incessantly. His speech is peppered with "I", "my", "myself", and "mine". He describes himself as intelligent, or rich, or modest, or intuitive, or creative вЂ“ but always excessively, implausibly, and extraordinarily so. The most often used word in Obama's speeches is the world "I" and variation of the word such as "I've always..." "I won", "I will trump you on that".
Obama has manipulated the public that voted for him. It is even more frightening that the media gave up whatever credibility it ever had in never questioning the claims, the background or the accomplishments Obama put on his resume!
The Media was way too busy sending investigators and bloodhounds to Wassila, Alaska to get all the dirt they could dig up to exaggerate or invent about Sarah Palin!
