Blame Game

Yesterday we got to hear from our highest echelon of Government all about how they spent so much and now its time to pay the bill. I just loved Obamas lament that the Republicans are putting off the measures like a kid who won't do their homework until the last minute. Since when is holding the line on what really needs to be done procrastination? Sasha and Malika I am certain are the stars of the Obama household and I am sure if our dear President asked them what to do they would most likely have a solution outside of blaming, smearing and condescending to opposition.

Obama loves the straw man tactic. Its an easy guy to pick apart and as he preaches to his base voters, most likely the only ones who cant remember that Obama and the Democrats have had 2 years of total Government control and have had both the Legislative houses for 4 years. Thats 2 years with majorities that could have accomplished great things if only they could find unity within their own party, which is most difficult when re election is the goal and policy the party line embraces divides and destroys the Nation.

So here we are with our proverbial car in the ditch, pointed at the cliff edge, gas tank on empty, oil light flashing, tires spinning, spewing smoke with our driver hoping everybody else sees our pile of debt through the passenger side mirror which states that objects appear smaller than they really are. That pile of debt is like a semi tractor trailer coming around the bend and anybody with eyes can see it now. But what do the architects of this predicament have in mind? The November 2012 election, thats what. Spinning the facts and hoping everyone forgets history and how we always used to get out of recessions and depressions.

Obama acts as if he has arrived from some distant galaxy and can step in and save the day because he has no culpability and no agenda and no problem with the truth. He is right about one thing though, we do need leadership right now. Like never before we are boxed in and there are really no tools left in the bag of tricks. Maybe that semi will stop and pull US out of the ditch, or maybe it will just knock US off the cliff. Then our country can get a new car and driver, or go back to riding horses or something.

*Is *Hostility War?

It depends on what the meaning of is is. and now it depends on the meaning of the word hostility.
Thats what happens when a lawyer is in charge. And a Constitutional Lawyer at that?

Shovel ready Jobs

Thank God some one is out there thinking that what's best for our country is growing the economy and jobs.

Will It Be Worth IT

The economy is still tanking and all this country can seem to muster is enough attention to peruse sex scandals and who may run against Obama in a year and a half. Right here right now we have energy independence opportunities that will probably drown in the redtape regulations, Iran and the Middle East about to im(ex)plode, an economy that if it ever gets any traction will explode with inflation, Laws rammed through by this President and last congress about to be declared unconstitutional, a housing market that may take years to come back, unemployment ridiculously high, and debt that will crush the next two generations possibility to live a better life.

All this is penance of a sort, I am thinking, paying dues for out of control obsessive compulsive living high above our hog. We have forgotten that God gave US this bounty and He can surely take it away if we seem to exhibit bad stewardship and self indulgence, which this nation, and the world, has surely been guilty of for at least a generation. We can get back in good graces if we remember our Lord and that our lives purpose is to serve Him. This crop of louts can be dealt with at the ballot box and will be soon enough. The lessons we learn?

Hope and change can be desired, and may even be necessary. But in whom the agent and direction are empowered should be thought through with the greatest gravity. Here we are learning the hard way it takes more than just words and grand ideas. Ability has to match reality has to match possibility. Our lesson will be what we can't do this time.
