Mr President, How Dumb Do You think We are?

....obviously pretty dumb! You could at least put forth a more convincing narrative to promote your propagandizing of the virtues of Socialism (although cleverly disguised in misdirected rhetoric cloaked in political correctness); the benevolence of big omnipresent government; the dedication and intelligence of your appointed practitioners; the progress we are making toward appreciating a more tolerant and diverse society, it's assurance only impeded by Conservatives and their radical right Tea Party membership. Listening to your most resent round of fund raising soiree party pieces, I'm perplexed by your appraisal of what you think you have accomplished, what you say you will accomplish in the waning years of your now infamous two term presidency! Your sense of reality, of the truth, of the dire straights our country, the world is in-, largely attributed to your actions and/or inactions, defies reason let alone plausibility.  How can anyone with a grain of intelligence buy in to this propaganda, this gross distortion of the truth! Just look at the numbers produced by the nonpartisan CBO. Even spun in extreme partisanship can not mask the decline of a once great and resilient economy! As for our international reputation as leaders of the free-world, reaction to our impotence and passiveness loudly manifested in stinging reprisals on a near daily basis. The corruption, incompetence and political biases of our government agencies if not outright criminal certainly a demonstration of impropriety beyond the pale! Yes I know my ranting, for all it's wanting in syntax, has a common thread of Liberal Democrat bashing, but that in its self is telling. You would think I would come up for air in finding some good in the accomplishments of this regime, after all I am not a complete dolt, I do realize there are two sides to every story, to every argument. Yet I do go on, simply because every movement, every comment, every action or inaction of this regime, in my personal appraisal is premeditated to serve a not so hidden agenda, Socialism; America the Republic brought to its knees in the tenure of a President supposedly educated and practiced in Constitutional Law, in our Constitutional Law! Such deception, such demagoguery. And not just a smidgen as you would say Mr President, but wholesale outright deception and demagoguery!

Divided We Fall

How could one man, one administration raise such havoc and cause such irreparable damage to this long lived model Representative Democracy of ours? This Socialist, steeped in repugnant Marxist dogma and Saul Alinsky practices rise to such prominence and power to dissuade the citizens of the wealthiest, most prosperous, the most freedom and liberty enjoying nation on the face of the earth turn toward socialism, the anathema of all it's prosperity and liberties? How? In a word division, divide it's citizen majority by every divisor imaginable.The majority, our great and exceptional middle class. Those divisors the endless list of social biases from prejudice to pettiness. Cultivate envy. subsidize the malcontents and lethargic, curtail the ambitious, regulate all avenues of prosperity, establish government as opposed to the individual as the fount of all  aspirations and attainment of wealth, health and happiness. And, to boot abdicate our world leadership to those who wish us and those of our persuasion harm! Just look at us, staggering with self inflicted wounds. Held in ridicule by near all for our actions and inactions. And, take a good look at our politicians who are inflicting these wounds, their rhetoric, their demeanor! Do you sense remorse, regret, the intention to heed their ways, to right our ship of state? I don't! I see smug complacency; pride in accomplishment in what they have wrought! Most, moving on to adjust their political posturing to curry re-election and/or bolster their questionable legacy in leaving the dubious field of politics! All the while, oblivious to the fate of we the people; the shambles they have left the country in?

I've often said when referring to the Radical Islamics, what is it that you don't understand about-, they want to kill us! I say here, what is it that you don't understand about President Obama-, he doesn't like us, our country, our nation, our society. No, he doesn't what to kill us, he merely wants to fundamentally transform the United States into a socialist union, as well as a benign member of the international community of nations. He has said it, he has demonstrated it repeatedly and illegally! Constitutional Law be damn! In his words...he has a telephone, a pen and the will, to over reach executive privilege to the full extent of our legislator's and we the people's will to tolerate. I see two more years of this reign of destruction going unabated, unless the mid-term elections signal an overwhelming change in the electorate's hearts and minds, in turn a profound retraction of all this presidency stood and continues to stand for! I know, an incongruity our president elect doesn't like us, but tell me how he has convinced you otherwise? He surely isn't listening to us! He is unmistakably a committed unabashed socialist state builder, with little compunctions on how to go about doing it; an accomplished poser with seditious intentions!

Frustrated To A Standstill

Why in the midst of all these comment worthy political machinations have I grown silent? The adjective flummoxed comes to mind!  Simply I can't get my head around the antics of our government, of our citizenry toward those antics! Admittedly all the events of the past several months has put me in a funk of immeasurable depth! Nothing seems to make sense to me anymore. Yes, I know I'm one of those Ten Commandments, Constitutionalists guys, that has gone out of fashion, who cringes in disbelief that all their teachings and values has come to question both politically and socially in my life time! Our Politicians become more suspect each passing day, we the public's reaction, to a large extent to those suspicions, way to tolerant for my understanding. All involved, pro or con register at one time or another, indignation, remorse, intolerance, but in the final analysis more likely than not, nothing of substance comes to pass. Wrong is never righted, endless debate ensues; champions, culprits  and villains alike obscured in superfluous rhetoric, claims and counterclaims-, until confusion reigns supreme and the issue at hand so mitigated, its impact so diffused, to have lost all relevance and urgency in the scheme of things. As I reach for cogent comments to vent my frustration, I have to remind myself it's a whole new ball game out there Tommy, one that you obviously can't fathom, one that is beyond your comprehension, one that reflects poorly on our nations  founders and those founder's followers who sacrificed so much to preserve its values, freedom and liberties. In my eyes we've let them all down, we've failed to instill a sense of pride and purpose in our generations to influence. We've failed to stand up and be counted when we recognized subversion was afoot, that forces were amassing to do asunder; standing idly by as stupefied spectators to the systematic destruction of our once great country; not only allowing but enabling our government officials to perpetrate crimes against our state once only imagined the purview  of Banana Republics. We witness seriously flawed men and women at our highest seats of government,,,,,, not all mind you, but such a preponderance to give the most optimistic among us pause, pause to wonder about our very survival as a nation, as a society! Count me among those wonderers grown silent...., for the moment.

I Remember Harry

Back in the day Harry Truman's awareness that the buck stopped at his desk was a telling testament to his character and appropriateness of the office he held, President of the United States. He was a simple man of modest credentials, intellect and presence who was thrust upon the political stage from the relative obscurity of the vice presidency in  succeeding in death the first, and only four term serving American iconic president, Franklin Delano Roosevelt? He was a Democrat in the days Democrats like their Republican brethren were first and foremost constitutionalist, fiercely patriotic, and committed to sustaining the exemplary life, liberties and pursuit of happiness American citizens enjoyed at the time! He had common man foibles and political biases that he rose above to lead the nation and the world in swiftly ending World War ll, surmounting the challenges of the post war era while preserving the dignity of the vanquished and the victors in demonstrating American exceptionalism in benevolence and generosity. His hand always unquestionably white knuckled on the tiller of our ship of state, always responsible, always conscious of the judicial requirement for the wielding of American influence and power; governments participation in our national economy, never flinching in its application! Their were those of us who questioned his decisions both nationally and internationally back then, but never his motives or intentions. Not a day goes by these days that I don't question the motives let alone the intentions of this president of ours, he is neither a Democrat, or a whatever in his thinking relative to my comprehension of what an American President should think. He is indecisive in all things requiring American influence and power; his loudly touted social agenda divisive, contrary to a large extent, confusing, and unproductive. His grasp of economics, our station in the world community, his organizational and leadership skills beyond wanting! In good ole The Buck Stops Here Harry Truman' s memory, I take back all those disparaging remarks I made about his administration. Well, almost all of them!
