Happy New Year, happy Tuesday, and happy
inaugural 'Here We Go'
It's so exciting; everyone is posturing and politicking already, with the new kids on the block hardly moved in yet. The Heritage Foundation has a great piece running this morning on Harry Reid, all about him trying to control the controlling aspect of the Senate, chomping at the bit to get rid of the filibuster.
Typical. If we can't stuff reckless legislation down the people's throat through the proper channels, we will simply circumvent the slow-moving, methodical process of having a real debate altogether.
then there is this, coming fresh off of Air Force One, in the middle of his return trip to Washington and business as usual...brilliantly orchestrated, in a twisted note to self kinda way, throwing in his usual bait and switch rhetoric to entice the captured audience of his people on board -- "and so my expectation, my hope is that John Boehner and Mitch McConnell
will realize that there will be plenty of time to campaign for 2012 in 2012, and that our job this year is to make sure that we build on the recovery." oh yeah here we go
"You know, I think that there's going to be politics. That's what happens in Washington -- that they (Republicans) are going to play to their base for a certain period of time...But I'm pretty confident that they're going to recognize that our job is to govern and make sure that we are delivering jobs for the American people and that we're creating a competitive economy for the 21st century, not just for this generation but for the next one." you go, Obama, get on with your bad self...
and now, let's give it up for Reuter's, for without your organization and the ability to bring "Obama urges Republicans to help him
..." to the people, in a speedy, professional fashion blah blah blah, I just gotta ask myself, just where would we be?
well done, all the way around.
You got the word out; you let everyone know, Obama has our back, and may this be a warning to those pesky republicans... as if we, the people, have lived under a rock over the last two years...
sure, sure, Obama has always taken the position of bringing the two sides together, that's the ticket; he's never polarizing -- always bridging -- and absolutely, tirelessly, frowning upon the horrific yet oh too frequent occurrence of the politics as usual inside the beltway -- never speaking simply to one's base, as that would just be wrong, and always acting on behalf of ALL Americans... yeah yeah (recalling the umpteen times we heard Obama "calling on 'young people, African Americans, Latinos and women') Of course, duly noted should be his sudden decent into an unnatural Latino accent, as if streamlining out of the barrio itself, whenever his says the word "Latinos." really, Mr. President?
If you are white, and/or a republican, we have learned from the left, with our fine President leading the way, that we should basically just go away, as if being handed our walking papers after being sharply shamed and blamed for all of societal ills. enough said. let's moveon.org to the next item on the agenda...
Oh, but how do you say... this is the time to set the politics of it all aside, he says. This is the time, to push off the campaigning for 2012, until 2012. right. okay. that's a good one. there's no fiber in this...
are you for real?
The thing is, all this manipulation is exactly what is wrong with this country; we need to stop trying to control everything and everyone, and simply grow good, hard working people --
and then! actually REWARD those people,
with oh, things like, oh I don't know, maybe perhaps...things like, keeping more of their own money, allowing the people to regulate their own health care needs...
-- opening up a true free market economy to bend and sway according to the laws of supply and demand, respective of the natural ebb and flow that it really is and was made to be
-- protecting family farms and the small businesses across the land, to be passed on to future generations so that, seriously, when Obama says "not just for this generation but the next one" he really means it, understands it, and respects it, in keeping with how the real world truly works
-- maybe even going so far, as to give all responsibility to the parents in raising their child to eat right and go to school, so that they have half a chance of growing up to be sound, mindful, courteous, responsible citizens leading the next round of citizens into this world...
oh my, look at me, rambling on here...
oh my goodness, we could go on and on about all the ways the free market principles work for all Americans, if truly given a chance to play freely; but what has a choke-hold on us now, keeping us from really experiencing this kind of freedom, this effervescence waiting in the wings, this kind of boom, are simply the regulations and controlling elite manipulating everything we touch
-- and now, since this process has been allowed to go on, unchecked and unhinged, for a century, we now have the added strangulation of unfunded liabilities and entitlement programs, of which we could never afford to begin with, having been only pushed off for a rainy day, only to have that day be here, as of yesterday, or was it the day before...
If, Mr. President, you really cared about jobs and "the recovery," you never would have signed off on the Health Care Law, just for starters. Pulleezy sleazy, now you care about the economics of it all?
The unintended consequences of a system fundamentally transformed into "taking care of everyone" has backfired onto each and every one of us, "not just for this generation, but the next one.." Here we go, and there we went, just like that. We're like those black birds falling from the sky..how 'bout that, huh?
But more power to you, Mr. President, keep on keepin' on; the people will have their day, again -- and make no mistake, may this be a warning to those old guard republicans as well. No means no! And we expect you to follow through with the people's mandate set forth 11/02/10 beginning at the morning bell tomorrow 01/05/11. God's speed.
Make it a Good Day, G
