What a field-day for the heat
A thousand people in the street
Singing songs and carrying signs
Mostly say, hooray for our side- Stephen Stills
EMERGENCY!- We’ve been very bad with our carbon emissions warming the world, melting polar icecaps, and killing Polar Bears. UNLESS we take IMMEDIATE action and IMPOSE CAP & TRADE, the sea levels will rise and you and I will be under water!
EMERGENCY!- We’ve been very bad creating the Sub-Prime Mortgage market, breaking the banks, and busting the investors. UNLESS we take IMMEDIATE action and IMPOSE TARP, unemployment will rise and you and I will be in another Great Depression!
EMERGENCY!- We’ve been very bad with our healthcare delivery system, driving up cost of medical coverage, and forcing people into bankruptcy. UNLESS we take IMMEDIATE action and IMPOSE OBAMACARE, our entire economy will fall apart.
EMERGENCY!- We’ve been very bad with spending more than we make, raising our debt to $14 Trillion, screwing our grandchildren. UNLESS we take IMMEDIATE action and IMPOSE INSANITY by raising our debt ceiling no later than the drop dead date of April…June…July…August 2nd, the stock market might collapse…by like 513 points or something!!
Every emergency above contains the exact same ingredients:
Manufactured crisis, secret meetings, media manipulation, midnight deal, immediate vote (with no time to read the bill, debate, discuss or mount grassroots opposition). Hello!
Perhaps it would be a good idea to STOP to catch our breath here for just a moment, eh?
Besides the shared ingredients of each crisis, have any of my friends on the left stopped long enough to realize that in every single crisis, the proposed & then IMPOSED solutions DID NOT WORK??
Global Warming (I’m sorry, Climate Change)- Thank God Congress fought long enough for the wheels of this hoax to come completely off. Will that stop this President from using this manufactured crisis to cut off all oxygen from an economy already on life support?
TARP- Toxic Asset Relief Program? How about TOTALLY ANNIALATE RECOVERY PROSPECTS? Followed by another $ Trillion so that unemployment would “not rise above 8%.” The American public has become Kevin Bacon in Animal House, “Thank you sir! May I have another?”
OBAMACARE- History will record this as the single most devastating act of this president for two very painful reasons; (1) It sapped 100% of the countries focus and resource so desperately needed to create the jobs that would have saved us from this. (2) It gave this country’s greatest enemy (Obama), the power he needed to destroy this country as we knew it!
DEBT CEILING- History will record this as the most despicable act of any generation in all of history! What WE have allowed, permitted, asked for and demanded is nothing short of generational cannibalism…We have eaten our own! Worse than that…our insatiable appetite has grown beyond the world food supply’s ability to sustain it! We had better find life on other planets SOON!
People…We are in the last hours of the last act of a very, very bad movie. There is absolutely no way that this ends well for any of us, unless…we miraculously find a way to come together and unite against this insanity.
A great many of us do not see eye to eye on a great many things. And this alone has been their greatest mechanism for dividing us (their first and most important step)!
But many of the friends I disagree with the most, also happen to cherish the very same basic American values and qualities of life as I do. So how do we come together to stop what might already be too late to stop? Could we perhaps begin by acknowledging that the evidence suggests we’ve (80% of us) been had (by the 20%)?
And then all we need to do is assess the growing inventory of lies, upon lies, upon lies. From the major issues above to all the lies we were fed about the wonderful birth of the youthful Arab Spring…unfolding into the menacing dark clouds of Theocratic Tyranny over a vast and critical portion of our world! What does this mean to them? What does this mean to our greatest ally and friend, Israel? What does this mean to us? How many lies to we need to hear before we stop listening to the liars?
Finally, we need to agree that a true leader does not blame his predecessor. A true leader takes ownership and responsibility from day 1 of his watch! A true tyrant divides, plays one citizen against the other to take control.
In July alone this President signed into law, hundreds of new regulations with a tax payer cost of $9.5 Billion!
In a failing economy, this is akin to attempting a Triathlon in a straight jacket!
The Dow Industrial Average fell by 513 points yesterday! This, after we were told the markets would get a terrific bounce from the wonderful air of compromise on Capitol Hill!
“There must be some way out of here” said the joker to the thief
“There’s too much confusion”, I can’t get no relief…
But you and I, we’ve been through that, and this is not our fate
So let us not talk falsely now, the hour is getting late”. –Bob Dylan
