January 2009


I continue to be amused by the throngs of followers. It reminds me of lemmings, mesmerized, blinded and drunk by hope, running toward their own doom. The problem is they are going to take the rest of the country with them.

Obama’s latest blathering is about telling the nation not to listen to Rush Limbaugh. This is getting pretty close to government sponsored censorship. Next, he’ll be telling us what jobs we will take when we get out of school. Or perhaps take away our rights to bare arms.

If it weren’t for the fact that he is instructing us on who and what to listen to or read, I would say crazy ideas like that are far-fetched.

Why, in a democracy, does he dictate? Can’t we form our own opinion ourselves? Wasn’t that act good enough to get him voted into office? Wait a minute…. maybe he’s onto something. <— for the satire impaired, that’s satire right there.

… the act of preaching a certain belief or way of life, but not, in fact, holding these same virtues oneself. It is the act of being deceptive, just pretending to be good, as in: It is hypocritical to tell your children to behave a certain way and then do the exact opposite yourself.

The Pretense
President Obama: “The executive order on ethics I will sign shortly represents a clean break from business as usual. As of today, lobbyists will be subject to stricter limits than under any other administration in history. If you are a lobbyist entering my administration, you will not be able to work on matters you lobbied on, or in the agencies you lobbied during the previous two years. When you leave government, you will not be able to lobby my administration for as long as I am president.”

The facts
The Obama administration wants to waiver the above rule to allow itself to appoint William Lynn, a former lobbyist for defense contractor Raytheon Corporation, as deputy defense secretary.

Reflection
Mr. Obama and his administration have set standards to which it basically ignores. Said another way, their executive order does not apply to them. The rules only apply to the point where it becomes inconvenient.

This change thing is just fricking awesome.

It’s simple really, and I look to history.

The reason? There has never been an instrument of surrender which has been signed between the two. You can draw the thread out from that.

The proxy war fought via Iran will end only when the ability to wage that war has been removed. The ability to collect and use weapons, the supportive will of the people and the government must be removed by any means possible.
