Dear America,*** sideshow alert ***
*** sideshow alert ***
that takes us back a few blogs...
but here we are again, preparing our hearts and minds for another fun-filled evening getting our heads stuffed with propaganda. it's gonna be great.
As I was rolling along this morning, trying to catch up on news and commentary, I came across a beautiful example of the way this man works it -- “I do worry sometimes that as soon as we leave the prayer breakfast, everything we've been talking about the whole time at the prayer breakfast seems to be forgotten—on the same day of the prayer breakfast...I mean, you'd like to think that the shelf life wasn't so short,” he added. “But I go back to the Oval Office and I start watching the cable news networks and it's like we didn’t pray.” [for more, just go here.]
And just maybe, oh brilliant one, we pray for different things.
Oh but do go on...
"It's important not to read too much into any particular political victory—because this country is big, it is diverse, it is contentious, and we don’t have a monopoly on wisdom, and we need to remember that."
Sometimes, I really don't think he pays much attention to what he is saying. It's as if his circles never meet up at all. He just spins his wheels.
If nobody carries the monopoly on wisdom, then all of us have something to contribute to the cause. IF we are diverse, then we may not agree...on anything. If we are sooo big -- this country -- then why do you think, Mr. President, with such a small mind? Instead of listening to the opposition, you ridicule it; instead of working with both sides of the aisle, you cut them off at the knees. Like you said, YOU don't have a monopoly on the wisdom...so act like it.
But I can see it all now -- you are going to be arrogant and smug, standing there at the podium with the perfect cock of the head, pausing at just the right moment, elongating that hand-picked syllable for emphasis and extra consideration. As if you think harder, better, brighter than the rest of us. At least the GW dripped with humility when he spoke; at least he addressed the American people as one body instead of cut up by demographics and agenda and color, flocking to your side like zombies.
I keep having to remind myself another four years of this has only just begun.
I was already worn out...and the reality is, we have just so much more of this to come! Maybe Obamacare should be passing out free anti-depressant drugs to all of us needing a little extra TLC -- I mean, honestly, what's going on is just so unfair for those of us aligned with the principles of common sense conservative solutions. Perhaps we need to open a case with the ACLU.
So as we can all predict by now, he will be addressing gun control, reforming immigration, upending the war in Afghanistan, and if he has time, mention how much the economy is on track for a total turn around. Oh as the seasons turn, turn, turn.
If you really think about it -- how come he didn't make all these changes that were always in his heart when he had all of Congress sitting in his favor? He could have done it all bada bing bada boom.
I believe it would be because true fundamental transformation of an entire way of life and limited government takes time to grow on us; this president recognizes the wisdom of playing his cards right, taking into account the winds of political and emotional change, while taking all the time necessary to sway the minds of the collective to alter everything they have come to know and love.
welcome to the new world; welcome to the new wave of dictatorship; it's so much cooler now.
well, word of advice: put on your Fat Tuesday pants, make a really yummy cocktail, and maybe go with the mac and cheese for dinner...then pop Reeses Minis as the evening dictates.
Make it a Good Day, G
hey, and considering what we were discussing yesterday....how about that lightening strike upon St. Peter's...good stuff.
