The Boogeyman Made of Straw

The Boogeyman Made of Straw

Obama is the little golden child of the left – half well-trained speaker, half Hollywood. They stare up at him with these eyes that glaze over in adoration. They chant his name, make objects in his image of all kinds, circle his head with light and name him their new Savior.

While the cultish behavior makes me physically ill, what infuriates me is that his supporters don’t even see how he talks down to them. How he treats them like little pets who just need to be stroked, reassured, smiled at and played around with in a few jokes. It’s insulting, or it should be.

Hail to the King

Hail to the King

Last night I watched as President Obama did something which deeply disturbed me. I wasn’t bothered by his suggestion to allow the illegally here parents of American children the right to stay in the country. Nor wanting to allow children born elsewhere and raised here to stay. I support both. The problem is, I don’t agree with HIM making those choices.

Obama off prompter becomes anti-union

Obama off prompter becomes anti-union

Comedy capers strike again. The non-Obama worshiping crowd is howling with laughter at the latest statement by Obama that to shut down the plant and stop working to get ‘something’ is wrong.

His off-prompter statement:

“If you’re working here, and in the middle of the day you just stopped and said ‘I’m just going to shut down the whole plant until I get something’ you’re getting fired.”

A tale of political posturing

A tale of political posturing

The current news is being completely bombarded with news articles about the Congressional standoff over budget issues and Obamacare and subsequent government shutdown. So much so that I thought about not even writing down my thoughts, merely from a level of personal mental exhaustion related to this topic. I’m sick of it, so I’ve decided to write but keep it short.

I dislike what is going on in Congress right now, and I think both political parties are just as bad as the other, but it takes two to create a stand-off. Both sides are making this into news headlines that claim its the others fault. Well I suppose that’s a lot easier to do than accept that you hold half the blame for the situation.

On Anti, Pro, or Partial Discrimination

On Anti, Pro, or Partial Discrimination

Most people in the U.S. believe in equal treatment of all citizens. A desire for freedom, fairness and equality are hallmarks of the Republic we have created. But are we taking a path to more fairness, equality, and freedom… or less?

This topic of anti-discrimination actually came up during a discussion related to some local legislation passed regarding LGBT anti-discrimination policy for city employees. I was less interested in the individual legislation, and more musing over the concept of anti-discrimination policy in general.

Obama the Divider

Obama the Divider

Obama is, like another recently movie popular president, willing to use his sacred cows to drive a wedge between the country without regard to the fact that it is pushing each side farther to the opposite edges and closer to a modern civil war. I’m of the opinion generally that Lincoln is severely overrated, particularly if you know the economic reasons for the abolition of slavery having very little to do with any high morality. Not that I approve of slavery, merely that I think Lincoln used the premise of a moral objective to advance a very different one and resulted in breaking our country in half.
