What is it with these people and FLIES?!!
Do you ever find it interesting that we have a president who has managed to convey this bewildering sense of “reality”…for lack of a better word…to a distracted, detached populace?…
He can go from feigning ignorance on an issue to flat out lying to the American public on another. It doesn’t matter what the scenario. There’s never any push back. Never any outrage. Never any challenge. He’s managed to convince an ill informed, occupied with the day-to-day, electorate that’s just the way things are. No accountability. No redress. We simply move on to the next contentious point of order!
It’s sad that we’ve devolved to this. We take for granted the life we have in this nation. That it will always go on. It will always be as we know it. If you’re the least bit concerned, you know this not to be the case. We’re a society drowning in debt.. a culture diluted by unchecked immigration..and a nation witnessing unspeakable violence practically daily.
Yet…here is Barack Obama. Given carte blanche to seize a substantial portion of the economy (i.e. Obamacare)…negotiate the security of the United States WITHOUT the approval of Congress…and manipulate whatever government issued statistic he pleases in order to present this utopia to a foolish and blind America. WITH the media’s eager assistance, mind you!
Of course, it goes without saying, if we had a Republican in office encountering the same, he would have been impeached years ago. He wouldn’t have the racial guilt of our society to protect him. He wouldn’t have a slavish media to present his presidency to voters who willingly fall for the imperialistic demeanor.
We face another year and a half of the Obama term. There’s no telling what we will encounter down the road. I shudder to think!
Do you get the feeling that more and more and more of current events are just completely topsy turvy?…
More situations and events across our country make no sense whatsoever!….
From a president who decided appeasing totalitarian regimes is better than having the resolve to confront them…to organizations literally calling for erasing our history by sandblasting memorials and tearing down statues!
It just makes no sense! The national demeanor has sunk to an all time low under Barack Obama. His ‘transformative’ approach has led to disaster at every turn! Nothing is what it seems and practically EVERY obnoxious, unthinkable behavior is excused and tolerated.
I suppose most of it comes from a society too distracted with as many matters as there are individuals, to care. Yet EVERYTHING is unraveling at the seams. There are those who downplay its significance. That it’s just the natural transition of things. I don’t think so! NONE of this “feels” right…it offers no hope of resolve or resolution where we will find a productive, engaged society. All of it is so artificial…so fleeting!
The time has come to realize, we are lost as a nation. There’s no confidence..no sense of direction. Just a people waiting to react to whatever foolishness happens next. No leadership is rampant. Sure…you may find a few individuals willing to rise and take charge of certain matters. But, overall there is NO ONE with the sense of how to empower the nation again. The days of that level of reality are long gone.
Barack Obama has brought nothing but shame to the presidency and tarnished it..perhaps indefinitely. The fact the nation entrusted a man that continues to lie to us with the power to shred our societal fabric is just another indication of how far we’ve fallen. We faced difficulty in the past. But, not from an enemy within. And this loss will see to it that we will never recover…
This great line from Greg Berlanti’s 2000 film, “The Broken Hearts Club: A Romantic Comedy”, does an excellent job of summing up my feelings concerning the recent happenings on the national stage.
Gay marriage is indeed a landmark occurrence for this country. And it offers great opportunity for many gay Americans. Close personal friends have finally realized a dream they’ve had for decades now come true. And I couldn’t be happier for them.
Unfortunately, they tend to view so many aspects of life through the prism of being gay. I’ve never been one to subscribe to that. Therein lies my difficulty with the entire politicized, polarizing issue.
It could be said that those that took the gay marriage issue to the forefront of societal consciousness are pioneers. No argument there….But..what happens now?…
A recent news report quoted Andrew Sullivan, the author and writer commonly credited with the case for gay marriage, as saying gay men don’t seem to have much in common, other than being oppressed! I thought, “What an ignorant, idiotic thing to say!” Excuse ME, Mr. Sullivan! Many of us were leading productive, happy lives LONG before you took this matter into YOUR own hands! And we continue to do so! To think the common bond among gay men is OPPRESSION! That’s a cheap, condescending cop out that short sells millions of gay Americans who manage to create, live, love, and learn!
Believe it or not, many gay Americans live their lives much the same as everyone else. Careers, home, family… Likely, much to the chagrin of the politically obsessed in the gay community. They have championed the issue…much in the framework of “like it…or ELSE!” to their fellow countrymen. That doesn’t sit well with me. I don’t care who you are or the nature of the contentious point that’s attempting to be made. But…that being said…it’s where we are these days. Government has assumed the role of dictating thought AND deed. And that should frighten ALL of us!
I’m not ashamed of being gay. But, it’s not EVERYTHING I am! Mr. Sullivan, and those like him, would do well to understand that I don’t NEED them to speak for me! I can manage that on my own. I respect his efforts and ideals. However, I don’t appreciate being branded a traitor to the cause for simply living my OWN life!
With today’s supreme court ruling upholding subsidies for Obamacare, it’s just the latest development that leaves you shaking your head in disbelief.
Barack Obama has become the most divisive, partisan, arrogant, and detached president to occupy the Oval office! On issue after issue, he’s played one side against another..or multiple parties against each other. He values nothing more than political expediency. This is all done under the guise of “fairness” and “for the good of the American people.”! When, truth be told, it’s lead to an exhausted and frustrated nation.
Ranging from the fiasco that is the hallmark of Obamacare to the embarrassing state of our foreign affairs, President Obama has managed to shirk responsibility and lay blame at the doorstep of his political opposition. A compliant media has made sure to characterize every situation to where it appears he is continually locked in battle with the dastardly Republicans ( an inept bunch, if any ever existed!)! Yet, nothing changes..nothing improves. Race relations, national debt, unemployment, foreign relations. It’s all a mess. And President Obama has craftily avoided criticism or a relationship to ANY of it!
The nation continues to busy itself with whatever may be. Or immerse itself in the turmoil of the issue du jour! And it plays perfectly with the Obama and Democrat agenda. Characterize the political opposition as the root of all evil, while offering NO concrete solution whatsoever!
It is said that Chief Justice Roberts ruled the way he did on this latest challenge to avoid disrupting the operation of the ACA. Rather than stepping back to take an objective, unbiased look at the detail of the law enacted without a SINGLE Republican vote…a law that few, if any, had the slightest idea of the consequences…he decides to take the coward’s way out. And that is what he is in this regard. A coward. A man who set aside his responsibility for the sake of political expedience.
It’s the nation we’ve become today. More and more Americans are giving up hope of turning things around. Of continuing the tried and true practice of the free markets and the entrepreneur. Leaving only a massive, consuming behemoth in the federal government.
It discourages me to see how and why we’ve surrendered ourselves to the warped whims and shameless arrogance of those who support this sort of control.
Today, we saw just another nail in the coffin of the American spirit.
Call him what you will, but Donald Trump is RIGHT about SO many things!…..
Some excerpts from his speech in announcing his running for president…
“I’m really rich…that’s the kind of thinking you need for this country. It sounds crass, it’s not crass..”
“That’s the kind of thinking our country needs…”… “We have the opposite thinking. We have losers. We have people that don’t have it. We have people that are morally corrupt.”
On Obamacare and the website fiasco: “I hire people, they do a website, it costs $3!
On our losing status in the world:
“I’m not saying they’re stupid, I like China..”… “I just sold an apartment for $15 million to someone from China. Am I supposed to dislike them?”
“Politicians are all talk and no action,”….“We have losers. We have people who are morally corrupt. We have people who are taking the country down the drain.”
“I’m really proud of my success, I really am,”….”I’ve employed tens of thousands of people over my lifetime. That means medical, that means education, that means everything. So a large accounting firm and my accountants have been working for months — because it’s big and complex — and they’ve put together a statement.”
“When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best..”
“They’re sending people who have lots of problems,… which include “drugs” and “being rapists.”
Just a few of what many consider outrageous remarks…That very well may be..but, for the most part they tell it like it is!!
