With so much constantly thrown at us in today’s out of control world, I’ve been searching for a summation that adequately puts it into words.
Of course, leave it to ‘The Godfather’ to put it all in perspective!
Here’s an excerpt from Rush Limbaugh’s radio show on May 14, 2015. I’ve added appropriate illustrations, but once you give it a read, you’ll see how it explains how we’ve come in these dire straits….
Within minutes of this train derailment you just knew the word ‘infrastructure’ was gonna be bandied about all over the place, and it was. The word ‘infrastructure’ was halfway around the world before anybody found out that infrastructure had nothing to do with this, that it was an engineer.”
“How many other reporters have donated to the Clinton Crime Family Foundation? That’s what I want to know. I don’t think it stops Stephanopoulos.”
“What other reporters and news people and who knows who else have donated to the Clinton Crime Family Foundation? That, to me, is the big question, and I don’t know that we’re ever gonna get an answer. Wouldn’t it be funny if the New England Patriots have? He-he. Just kidding.”
“You may think that there’s still a line between journalism and politicians, the president. That’s gone. It’s totally gone.”
“All of this fraud that is occurring to the American people, it didn’t start with Obama, and I don’t want anybody to think that that’s what I believe. Fraud, at the highest levels of US government, has been going on for a while. It would be hard, actually, to peg when it began.”
“There’s a reason so many people want to live in Washington. If you want money, that’s where it is; that’s where it’s allocated; that’s where it’s taxed; that’s where it’s collected; that’s where it’s banked; that’s where it is spent. ”
“The degree and the level of fraud and deceit in the past six and a half years is so bad and so deep that it’s the reason we have the Tea Party. The degree of fraud, the irresponsible spending and money that we don’t have, has millions of Americans legitimately concerned for the future of the country, particularly in terms of economic opportunity for their kids and grandkids.”
“Where does the government get money? They have to take it in the form of taxes or borrowing. They take the money from the economy that they’re gonna stimulate.”
“The stimulus bill was not about infrastructure any more than Obamacare is about affordable health insurance. You cannot fully fund fraud. You can never satisfy con men.”
“When normal people yesterday, average, ordinary, the people that make this country work, when they were mourning the dead, when they were seriously worried about the accident and the damage and the injuries, the Democrats were out celebrating a crisis while the bodies were still scattered across an accident site. They saw an opportunity to once again defame conservatives and Republicans. They misstated facts, such as dilapidated infrastructure was the cause of the derailment.”
“The right to private property, I think it’s right in there with free speech, freedom of religion, freedom of assembly. Not to say the other amendments are of less importance. It’s hard to quantify them that way. They’re all crucial, and they’re all relevant, and they are all purposeful and unique in defining this country as something separate and distinct from every other country that exists or ever has.”
“Liberals love Europe, and Europe equals trains. Trains equal Europe. Trains equal good liberal. Trains also equal saving the climate and all this cockamamie crap.”
“You know what New England called the guy that was letting the air of the footballs? The Deflator. The Patriots are saying, ‘No, he lost a lot of weight. That’s why he was called the Deflator.’ Come on! There’s never been a person in the world that lost a lot of weight that anybody ever called the Deflator.”
“By the way, the latest pictures of the guy? He hasn’t lost any weight, it doesn’t look like to me. So I don’t know what the Deflator looked like before he started deflating.”
“You know, it’s a good thing, folks, I have a strong, strong constitution, spine, and am well adjusted, otherwise I would be in the loony bin.”
“Obama’s over $800 billion stimulus bill back in 2009 was an infrastructure bill, so we were told. Repair roads, bridges, schools, and all that. It turns out to be as big a lie as Obamacare. The stimulus bill wasn’t about infrastructure any more than Obamacare is about affordable health insurance.”
“One thing that the Bushes are, they’re tight. They’re a very tight family, and loyalty is the coin of the realm to them. I say that in a noncritical way. Just informative. Jeb is not going to throw his brother under the bus.”
“You’ve heard the old saw, ‘If you criticize Obama, if you criticize Democrats, the independents don’t like it and they’re gonna run right back to the Democrat Party.’ Never mind the fact that the Democrat Party does nothing but defame Republicans.”
“Not every road and bridge and school is federal. It’s up to states to do some of this stuff, too. Or a combined federal-state effort.”
“Let’s say it’s accurate, that 5% of the federal budget is for infrastructure. Fine and dandy. That just means the Democrats are gonna have some crumbling infrastructure they can blame on the Republicans.”
“The Republicans haven’t had anything to say about what happens in Baltimore since the 1960s.”
“I don’t know how long ago you have to go back to be able to say that the Democrat Party had people in it that were focused on good governance, responsible government and all that. All I know is you’ve gotta go back a long way.”
“We’re in the midst of what the Democrat Party thinks could be the last power grab necessary. They believe if they play their cards right in the next two years, there will not be a viable Republican Party to even worry about. That’s what they want.”
“When’s the last liberal you can think of that expressed deep concern over the way conservatives are being treated in the media? Can you name one?”
“I am a household name in all four corners of the world, plus the frozen tundra of Antarctica.”
The excerpt does a great job exemplifying our frustration with 6+ years of this disaster in the White House…a president who has inflicted more damage and managed to pull the wool over the eyes over more voters than ANY president in U.S. history!
