Scandalous Phony

IMG_0002

Thursday evening was special for me. My friend Al called me to join him in a glass of wine, well it was more than one glass, but “at this point what difference does it make?” It amazed me how loose our tongues got as the wine went down. Al and I discussed issues easily, and made some great points to defend our positions.

Al opened the debate with a list of scandals being touted as phony by our dear President. Al was livid.

Our debate was one-sided because I couldn’t offer a defense to support the President’s claim of phoniness. I did come up with a reason though. The President has been on the defensive for over four and a half years now. One way he deals with issues is to deflect the press away from those that can harm him. The press is more than willing to take the lead, and cover anything other than those things that will hurt the man.

The George Zimmerman trial just finished and the press coverage dropped to zero. The news-stations needed something to talk about to steer “We the People” away from Obama’s failed policies. The Royal baby was next and relieved the pressure while we all waited to learn the sex of the new heir.

I believe the administration manufactured one scandal just to take heat away from the president on the Benghazi killings. The administration confessed to the IRS targeting of conservative groups filing for 503c3 status, but it blew up in their faces. The confession, and an admission of guilt, followed by a lame apology did not work. It did however take the heat off Benghazi.

This week, the President deliberately told lie after lie in his speech about the economy. Again, the intention was to deflect the conversation away from issues that could damage his administration. The whopper of the century was his comment that all the scandals are phony. I give him a Pinocchio-nose to the moon-and-back for that one. What is he covering up by deflecting us all to the “phony” comment? Well, he isn’t finished with the Benghazi affair, but he is also not very proud of his economic policies which is what his speech covered. The truth is Americans don’t really care that they are out of work as long as he keeps giving them unemployment and food stamps to live on. Could it be the new housing plan? The one where he is proposing to integrate every neighborhood in America? Americans will eventually wake up to that plan and then the press will begin to cover it again. Could it be his flaunting of the Supreme Court decision to rule on the Southern State’s voting laws by demanding Texas get Federal approval for voting law changes which is exactly what the Supreme court threw out? These are all good issues which Obama wants us to believe he is concerned about, but they are all invented to steer the press talk away from Benghazi, and now the very real IRS scandal.

Here is Al’s list of issues that Obama has perpetrated upon “We the People.”

1. IRS targeting of Conservative groups applying for 503c3 not for profit status

2. NSA spying on all Americans which is a stretch of the Patriot Act.

3. EPA war on coal and their  fines on Carbon Emissions

4. Regulations, too damn many unnecessary ones

5. HUD pressuring banks to approve loans based on racial percentages in neighborhoods. Isn’t that where the current housing market collapse began?

6. Poor Energy policy (I say it is a lack of an energy policy)

7. Deficit spending (transfer of wealth)

8. The Failure of Obama-care

9. Dodd-Frank, a deliberate control of the banking business

10. Fast and Furious and the order of Executive Privilege to protect Eric Holder and to prevent the truth from coming out

11. Benghazi-Obama, Hillary Clinton, and Susan Rice perpetrated a deliberate lie to deflect the truth from coming out by deflecting the press toward a video that no one saw.

12. Racial division, Obama is America’s premier racist. He uses racism to divide the country every chance he gets. Racial issues get press coverage and steer the conversation away from more stringent issues. Wy doesn’t he ever claim a white kid to be just like him? He is half white isn’t he?

13. Obama’s and Eric Holder’s refusal to uphold the laws of the land, i.e. the refusal to enforce Immigration laws and border control.

14. Military culture change, i.e.  the military removal of God from Christian military, but tolerance for Islam.

We decided there wasn’t enough wine in America to allow us to cover these topics in our lifetime. We also agreed that we will adopt Hillary’s attitude and use her famous defensive statement which the entire Congress bought into when she testified on her handling of Benghazi “at this point, what difference does it make?” that we call these major issues real or phony?

How would you handle them?

************************************************************************

Grumpa Joe apologizes for the poor color on his drawing. He made Obama look like a sun-tanned white and not like a true African-American black.

It just occurred to me, American Blacks like to refer themselves as African Americans, yet none of them can answer which country in Africa they are descended from. Obama is the only true African-American we have. He can trace his blood line to Kenya.

If blacks call themselves African Americans, should whites refer to themselves as European-Americans and not as Irish, Italian, Polish, or Spanish? Shouldn’t Obama refer to himself as Kenyan and not as Irish like he does when he visits Ireland?

I need some more wine.

 

Let’s Have Some Competition

One of the arguments, I have heard about why we need big government run health care reform is that the evil insurance companies need some competition. Why is it that the insurance companies are restricted to practice in a specific state? Wouldn’t it make sense that the private sector would compete vigorously if they were allowed to?

My guess is that there have been problems with insurance claims in each state. Our law makers, in their infinite wisdom, and their drive to get re-elected, proposed new rules to protect us from those evil insurers. The result, fifty states with fifty different sets of rules about  how to run an insurance company. There went the competition between states.

If  uncle is really serious about health care reform, he would set up some simple standards for heath care insurance, similar to those used by Medicare supplements.  Why is it necessary to set up a totally unfair government run insurance company to compete against the private sector, when a simple set of standards would be enough?

Let's Play By My Rules

The Mood of the Country

Wow!  a new target to pick on. David Axelrod, genius advisor to Obama is being thrown to the media as a front man for Obama. If he does as well as the president’s press secretary Robert Gibbs, the liberals will shine brightly into the universe as a new beacon of change and hopium. Maybe an alien nation will come to our rescue. While we are waiting to be rescued, Axelrod, Gibbs, and Obama will have to deal with the current mood of the nation.

Intelligent Design?

Is it just me, or am I wrong in thinking that Congress is supposed to author the bills? The content of bills they have recently passed without any understanding of them  wouldn’t be so foreign if they had authored the bills in the first place. So, who is writing the bills for them? Have we reached the point in our economy where it is cheaper to oursource  law writing to India, China, or Venezuela? I have tried to read HR 3200, but I am too illiterate to understand it. I think the supposition that they were written by a foreign entity is a plausible reason.

Here is another version of what might have happened:
