I want to address two subjects today, our completely out of touch President and Veteran’s day.
As we all know, President Obama is on this India/Indonesia trip supposedly to attend the G20 summit. First off, in my view as always this summit will end up with the rest of the world sneering at the President and in effect telling him to “take a hike” as is usually the case. And as he is towing along something like 3,000 people and what not I see this as just another waste of taxpayer money as he rewards his Marxist friends, nothing more, nothing less. BTW: I was taken to task in my last post when I carped about the cost, supposedly inflating the cost figures as I took them from the news accounts I was reading at the time: Please note my comment from that post. “One other thing, The President is leaving on a trip that in some stories I've read will cost the American taxpayer 200 million a day (again, I do not know the true costs, but as the Navy is also involved the cost has to be horribly high). 3000 people are needed for this trip?” I state that I in fact do not know the true cost of the trip yet I felt it was horribly high. As is usually the case, the hard left morons only use the words they want one to see against the writer, not the truth. This brings me to my first point of the day.
The President is out there as usual basically bad mouthing the American public. By that I mean he as are his cohorts in his administration and his propaganda arm, the MSM are telling the world how stupid the American public is. Heaven forbid he should ever admit his policies are boneheaded and wrong! No, better to call us common people dumb, illiterate, scared, racist or whatever rather than face up to the truth! A few quotes I found in the news:
As you see in this first quote, the President has his propaganda ministers working in full force. I don’t say this as a joke! He and his kind are open in their hostility towards the electorate. They call us stupid. Amazingly, they don’t get it yet! We are paying attention now!
From Drudge: New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg (R) has questioned the intelligence of the newly elected members of Congress. "If you look at the U.S., you look at who we are electing to Congress, to the Senate, they can't read," Bloomberg told a reporter while in Hong Kong for the C40 summit. "I'll bet you a bunch of these people don't have passports. We're about to start a trade war with China if we're not careful here -- only because nobody knows where China is. Nobody knows what China is."
The next two quotes are from our so called leader. As you can see, he is blaming the other side for in effect misrepresenting his policies. Pure and simple, the man, a hard core socialist is blaming the dumb electorate for not understanding or listening to his message.
From Obama interview: “I think the Republicans were able to paint my governing philosophy as a classic, traditional, big government liberal. And that's not something that the American people want.”
Well, at least he supposedly realizes we do not want big government. NOT! Moron Alert! All he’s doing is saying what he thinks we want to hear. He sure as hell doesn’t plan to change. He goes on to say in every interview in some way that he alone knows what is right and not matter what the lip service he pays, he will fight the evil Right. As he says below, he is unable to make us understand. Forget the fact that all he’s done for two years is talk down to the electorate. Good Lord! He had an unstoppable majority with which he should have been able to force his entire Socialist agenda on us yet he couldn’t! The people understand Mr. President. It’s jackasses like you that don’t.
“Making an argument that people can understand,” Mr. Obama continued, “I think that we haven’t always been successful at that. And I take personal responsibility for that. And it’s something that I’ve got to examine carefully … as I go forward.”
Last thought on this. His statement below is disgusting at best. He, to my knowledge has never referred to any other religion as great. And his view of Jihad is so out of touch with reality As to be childlike for want of a nastier word. This clown who refuses to admit that Muslim Fanatics are responsible for this is as usual cow towing to the enemies of this country.
“The phrase jihad has a lot of meaning within Islam and is subject to a lot of different interpretations, but I will say that first Islam is one of the world’s great religions. More than a billion people practice Islam and an overwhelming majority value their obligations to a religion that reaffirms peace, fairness, tolerance. I think all of us recognize that this great religion in the hands of a few extremists has been distorted by violence,”
“A religion that reaffirms peace, fairness and tolerance”! And this president and his followers think we the American public are stupid? This is absolutely beyond pathetic! I could go on, but I’m sure everyone gets the drift. Our President is an embarrassment to this country and in my view a traitor to our ideals.
Thursday is Veterans Day. As such, I want to first touch on another idiotic example of the Commander in Chief and his disdain for our military before I do my small part to honor our fighting men and women.
The other day, the President while in India gave a tribute to the people who were massacred by Muslim Terrorists in Mumbai. That anniversary happened to coincide with the massacre at Ft. Hood, a crime perpetrated by a Muslim terrorist! I swear, I have looked all over and have not seen one word from this scum bag in the Oval Office or his Marxist brethren as to Ft.Hood. Not only do they refuse to use the correct description of the person who shot these people (Muslim Terrorist for you lefty idiots out there) but the President of the United States could not even bring himself to acknowledge the one year anniversary of this heinous act! To this day, the government refuses to address a basic fact. Muslim Extremists, better known as terrorists want to kill us. And this president doesn’t give a damn! How dare he try to force his views on us and ignore not only our fighting men and women, but to also give short shrift to an episode that in many ways defines what is going on in the world today. This guy disdains our military and his country!
In past posts, I have mentioned my father, my two step fathers, my old man (F.B Lantz) as I call him, an employer who took me under his wing and I think helped make me the man I have grown to be and my son-in-law who is at this moment in Afghanistan. I wish to add to that list my brother Larry who served in both the Navy and Army. Proud soldiers and Veterans all. Over the years, I have been around magnificent people who have served in our armed forces. One note here. I tried to enlist in “69” but was rejected due to medical reasons. I only point that as I have been taken to task more than once with the “you never served argument” so what gives you the right to comment from our lefty friends. They are correct. I did not serve in the armed services.
As such, I cannot relate to what our service men and women have gone through. I can however tell anyone who wants to listen that I honor them all. I have been lucky enough in my life to have been surrounded by good honest men and women who have served. They never have asked for our thanks. They never have thrown it in my face that they served. They all to a man or woman simple felt that they did what they thought was their duty to God and Country. And yes, God is an important part of that.
These people in my discussions over the years with them only ask for one thing. “Please do not throw away everything our fore fathers have given you. Please do not waste what we have fought for. Please remember you live in the greatest country in the world” Again, this is what I feel the message is from them.
I and everyone in this country owe so much to our armed services. I thank them. I honor them. On this Veterans Day, the greatest gift we can give is not only recognition and thanks, but to disavow the course being taken by this anti-military government. Our military does not deserve that! They deserve our praise. They deserve our honor. They deserve our thanks. May god bless them all!
