Sequester This! And Please Stop The Childish Whining!

One would not be wrong to observe the goings on by our leaders and consider one was watching a junior high school debate. In fact I personally think we are insulting fine young junior high students by comparison. They can do better. This annual charade is getting loathsome as we passed tiresome two years ago. What a bunch of pinheads claiming to represent our well being. I would laugh if it were not such a serious issue.

Yes these pre programmed and so called “leaders” are anything but. Leaders tend to lead. Our “leaders” tend to whine. Phonies one and all if you ask me. And believe me I am going soft today as children are present. Oh yes, we must not forget the children as they will indeed inherit $20 Trillion + in debt to pay off for our greedy little selfishness. If people will only look at what we are doing to our kids, perhaps they might have a change of heart. Then again I am most forgiving and likely wrong. Human greed is a powerful vice. “Thou shall not gore my ox”. Get it from someone else. What a disgrace our “leaders” have brought us to this point.

Food for thought. This years budget is to be $3.8 trillion. This breaks down to over $12,000.00 per man, woman and child in this fine country. Are you kidding me? That is one hell of a lot of money. Why don’t they just send us all a check in that amount. Just think what that would do for your family. Are you beginning to fathom the monstrous sums we are dealing with?

Cashaggeddon. This is truly unsustainable my friends. The truly sad part of this is our “leaders” are borrowing .40 cents of each dollar spent. Try running your household or business in this fashion. I am sure it would not work out satisfactorily for you. In fact calling this insanity is redundant in the extreme. Yet the people cry “don’t take my benes”. Whose fault is it? I blame the politicians who have hooked us all on the public teet as a pusher would hook me on magic mushrooms. At the end of the day it is not sustainable and I cry out, “bring on sequester“. But not the sequester we are hearing about. After all, they are “hacking” perhaps $50 billion from the budget. Ouch!. I think not as we still will be a trillion or so in the red.

So we are witness to political maneuvering and hyperbole designed to get you to think as they do in D.C. which is a cesspool of inanity and sheer stupidity. Not to mention cowardice of the first order. These dupes are worthy of Oscar nominations for the show they put on. Albeit a bomb of a flick.

Who gets hurt and who wins? All of us and none of us. It can be best summed up as a tragedy of Greek legend. Don’t get me wrong, we are still a great and prosperous nation. I believe this is all about carving us up and dividing us in to factions and at each others throats. Only the politicians win in that game. The ramifications of minimal spending cuts is projected to cause calamities the likes of which only Satan would be proud. That is if you believe what they are selling us. I don’t buy it for a moment.

As always, my take is throw all the vermin out. I find nary a pair of stones in that whole town. But of this you can be sure, the politicians wealth will not diminish one iota as we all hold out our beggars cup. Or should I say at some point in the future our children will be holding that empty cup. In the mean time, enjoy your perks while they are still available.

If I were on the budget committee, you would see some real cuts. Not the peanuts these snakes are spouting endlessly about and will have no impact whatsoever. Real cuts might hurt short term, but yield riches long term. Stand up for what is right. As JFK said, “ask not….

The Nobel Peace Prize For Drone Strikes Goes To?

Well of course the winner is President Obama. How ironic? But well deserved in my opinion. It just shows how negligent the Nobel committee has become in the past generation. They bestowed an award based on some unknown promise which was perceived in their pea brains. They were hoping or at minimum, bought what our media was peddling us in 2008 and has proven to be nothing more than hyperbole. Historically speaking, such an honor is awarded based on remarkable achievement and rightly so.

Well last I checked on the current events in the Middle East, the Nobel brainiacs picked the wrong guy. At least their intentions were honorable. And isn’t that after all, what matters? Not to me as I prefer actions to words. It is not so widely reported that President Obama has out droned President Bush by a factor of four.
Simply incredible and I thank him for it. I do however regret the massive amount of collateral damage imposed by Mr. President. The few reports available suggest hundreds of innocents being killed in these strikes, children included.

Most unfortunate that. But perhaps it is better than pouring water down the gullets of three world known terrorists? Well if you listen to the Presidents supporters and 95% of the media, a little water is worse than innocent lives incinerated. The world is indeed upside down. At least if your perspective is from the left. At least that is the impression I get and have no choice but to conclude is the feelings of the left. Deafly silent on the issue wouldn’t you say? Tells me lots. It is indeed inconsistent, and also true.

The President received the award while campaigning as the anti-Bush. He promised to sit with the leaders of the Middle East and terrorist communities and bring peace. He promised to close Guantanamo Bay prison on day one of his administration. In the end, the results are the same as Michael Moore promising to drop five pounds. Empty words.

So the media and protestors who clobbered President Bush for too much water for KSM, and on a daily basis ravaged him for about five years, can’t muster the courage to do the same to the current President. Why do you think that is? It certainly is not how they were taught in the elite journalism schools. More likely it was the ideology in which they were propagandized and or brainwashed in these same institutions of higher learning. They should be ashamed one and all.

Do not the President’s supporters feel betrayed by these broken promises? I think the answer is clear. They don’t. They either don’t care, and in which case they should allow a little slack to President Bush and most assuredly an apology, or they are simply ideological blind to real world events. As the saying goes,” you can’t have it both ways”.

I personally commend the President for doing a job which was imposed on us and not declared by us. Believe me, I like peace as much as the next human. Most of the chaos is such a sad waste. Syria is now up too 70,000 dead. Shocking news. Yet the violence continues. And the President has a responsibility to protect us from foreign foes. So keep it up sir.

But let’s be fair my friends and view the goings on equally. If you disliked Bush’s policies enough to demand investigations and form protests, is it not intellectually honest to do the same with President Obama? Logic insists on this. But in the mean time do not hold your breath and await this logic as you will never see it. You will not read front page news for the next three years working over President Obama for collateral damage done by the drones. In the mean time Mr. President, drone on and I don’t mean with words.
