"A lie stands on one leg, truth on two."
"...A Russian citizen could not publish a testament like the one I just offered. President Putin and his associates do not believe in these values. They don't respect your dignity or accept your authority over them. They punish dissent and imprison opponents. They rig your elections. They control your media. They harass, threaten, and banish organizations that defend your right to self-governance. To perpetuate their power they foster rampant corruption in your courts and your economy and terrorize and even assassinate journalists who try to expose their corruption."
John McCain, Mr. Op-ed Take Down Extraordinaire, courtesy of Pravda.ru...and if you actually speak Russian, go here.
The comparison is ridiculously ripe with irony, inconsistency and hypocrisy -- if, the fine gentleman from Arizona were to find himself courageous enough to look at the real world in America, now fully under the spell of the Obama regime, alongside a dueling, incompetent, misguided, bevy of elitist ruling congress and adversely affecting the Rule of Law and good self-government from the top down. It's like, John, have you any idea what's going on here at home?
I just love the tally of tweets in the margin, suspiciously holding at a healthy round number of nothing but nyet.
Not to mention the titles of "popular stories" -- see the bullet points just a wee bit further right of McCain's mug...Here's a taste:
- Barack Obama: the worst President in the history of the USA
- The "Indispensable Nation" threatens another war against children
- Too many years of lies
- Return the Nobel Peace Prize Obama! UN Inspectors: we are watching you
- Putin works Obama shirks
- Obama has decided to buy congress than go it alone
But for another good spot in the op:
"President Putin claims his purpose is to restore Russia to greatness at home and among the nations of the world. But by what measure has he restored your greatness? He has given you an economy that is based almost entirely on a few natural resources that will rise and fall with those commodities. Its riches will not last. And, while they do, they will be mostly in the possession of the corrupt and powerful few. Capital is fleeing Russia, which - lacking rule of law and a broad-based economy - is considered too risky for investment and entrepreneurism. He has given you a political system that is sustained by corruption and repression and isn't strong enough to tolerate dissent."
just love the last line there...so much so, it's worthy of repeating:
"He has given you a political system that is sustained by corruption and repression and isn't strong enough to tolerate dissent."
Hello? And welcome to America.
As America shifts its entire economic system based on lies! Obamacare, check, and for the discount double check; the total destruction of our oil, natural gas and coal production, only to regulate every segment of our transportation and energy policy to force feed green upon us, based solely on lies -- thanks to "man-made global warming" and for good measure, check out the gross exaggeration here.
And let's add some presidential propaganda to the pile --
beginning with the "most tasteless presidential moment ever" ....happening live, on Monday morning:
"Health care costs are growing at the slowest rate in 50 years"....Huh? Really now?
"The problem is -- at the moment, Republicans in Congress don’t seem to be focused on how to growth economy and build the middle class. I say, at the moment, because I am still hoping that a light bulb goes off here..."
"...After all the progress that we’ve made over these past four-and- a-half years, the idea of reversing that progress because of an unwillingness to compromise or because of some ideological agenda is the height of irresponsibility. It’s not what the American people need right now."
"...Having said that, I cannot remember a time when one faction of one party promises economic chaos if it can’t get 100 percent of what it wants. That’s never happened before. But that’s what’s happening right now."
"...A lot of the, you know, horror stories that were predicted about how this was going to shoot rates way up and there were going to be death panels and all that stuff, none of that stuff’s happened."
"...But in case there’s any confusion, I will not negotiate over whether or not America keeps its word and meets its obligations. I will not negotiate over the full faith and credit of the United States. This country has worked too hard for too long to dig out of a crisis just to see their elected representatives here in Washington purposely cause another crisis.
"...I’ve run my last election. My only interest at this point is making sure that the economy is moving the way it needs to so we’ve got the kind of broad based growth that has always been the hallmark of this country."
All in all and with props standing upright behind him, and then in unison, nodding their heads at just the right moment and applauding....oh, the applause.
For the full transcript, with all things being said and done and put into proper context, having happened immediately after the shooting at the Navy Yard -- go here.
OR, you can also go back to remarks made on January 14, 2013 -- when the president was doing the very same thing...you know, attacking the GOP, and doing so while spewing violent imagery to boot... because the GOP is holding "a gun to the head of the American people", yeah, yeah, that's the ticket..."they will not collect a ransom in exchange for not crashing the American economy."
And you know, how absurd, anyway -- it's not like the raising of our debt ceiling raises the debt, right? Funny stuff. Read more @ CNSnews, here.
Let's "stop the political posturing;" how 'bout we give that a try?
And that's just another idiotic thing to say.
We are always, in all ways, posturing ourselves with political, ideological leanings. Some of us, so much so, we find ourselves totally bent over and up our own ass, like a certain John McCain, or like a Barack Obama, or like a Vladimir Putin. Naturally, at some point, we get lost in the realm of manufacturing our own bull.
Even the latest brouhaha over Warren Buffet's comments on Obamacare is something of a rouse. His comments came in 2010! It's only because a place called Money Morning highlighted the remarks when addressing concerns on what is on the economic, market savvy, horizon -- which, lo and behold, is now three years later and looking like the fraudulent "affordable" care act is about to become lock, stock and barrel, the law. But if you want to rehash the old news, here's a good cog in the blogs to log.
Yeah, cuz scraping Obamacare and starting over is just crazy talk...
'but thanks for your all support, Buffy, now sit back and watch the prophet of profiting upon propaganda do his thing...'
Indeed, still going strong and moving forward and going on five years now.
Well maybe our leaders have forgotten the secret back behind the excellence and exceptionalism of America's wealth -- both in sickness and in health -- but our citizenry have not. A yahoo! survey just the other day asked this question: "What's better for society? -- If wealthy give money to charity, to help create business, or to pay more taxes?" The tally at the time showed a 10% going with charity, 27% to paying more in taxes, and a whopping 63% to the creation of new business!
We believe in the value of people creating their own happiness and wealth with less government and more private ownership, accountability, freedom and liberty. At our very core, we believe in the government getting out of the way, still.
'What we have now
is untenable over time,'
an early supporter of President Obama.
'That kind of a cost
compared to the rest of the world
is really like a tapeworm eating,
you know, at our economic body.'
just to quote The Weekly Standard
"Untenable," he says. Like a tapeworm eating at the economic body...
Not suitable for occupation.
And most likely not covered under Obamacare.
So forward march to the organic, sarin, newly remodeled, solar infused, gas chambers we go -- speaking ironically, of course. [see here for a little lesson on sarin, from HuffPo; and thank you Nazis circa 1938]
Now, as many of my regular readers know, my personal life has hit a serious rough patch these days, and with good reason; but whining about it ad nauseam isn't going to help. Even I know, to deny reality is to deny creating a life outside of a living a lie.
In order to move forward, I must first live with two feet upon a sound foundation: the truth.
Only then can I make true steps forward, revealing the next level in God's plan. If I get stuck gnawing on all the things that are not working, running incongruent to my overall health and general welfare, like a tapeworm eating away at my soul, how does that feed my spirit? How does that serve me, my family, in high hopes of fulfilling my dreams and life's purpose, large and small?
The truth shall set me free.
And let this be a lesson for all of us, America.
We are living in a land of lies -- false truths that sound good -- make believe of all kinds, and tragically demanding us to make a choice between two sides when neither of which seem to be beholden to the real, genuine truth. We seem so confused as to which leg to stand on these days, we all fall down.
And yet, this president has the audacity to call the opposition -- those of us reading the tea leaves, the writing on the wall, back to the future and back again, and just about anyone and everyone who have the courage to stand on a soap box to sharply disagree -- the extremists!? Unbelievable.
I am so unnerved, sarin must be to blame.
It's no exaggeration when I say I think this president is snuffing the life out of all of us.
And believe I'll just leave it at that.
Make it a Good Day, G
