There is nothing Obama has said about ObamaCare which is either relevant or true. He was lying about it when he campaigned in 2008; lied about it to get it passed in 2010; lied about it, again, when he campaigned in 2012. He’s lying about it today. From all appearances, he’ll never stop lying about it. This is rather astounding – he could still get 90% of what he wants if he’ll just allow some of the worst aspects of it to be lopped off and/or reformed. But he won’t allow that – his rhetoric that he’s willing to accept suggestions from the opposition is just more lies. Anyone with even a bit of political skill and sense could salvage ObamaCare and them move on. More and more, I’m just convinced that Obama is stupid.
Some people are getting a bit worried about the number of senior officers in the armed forces that Obama has forced out. Dark visions of oppression are starting to sprout. I wouldn’t go that way, if I were you: Obama just wants generals and admirals who will obey his liberal stupidity…some generals and admirals were unwilling, and so they got the boot. The main thing to remember about this is that our senior military ranks are ever more populated with officers who will agree to any stupid, old thing in order to get another star on their shoulder. Should we win in 2017, we’ll have to ensure that the new President clears out this careerist deadwood which is taking over the military.
And, yes, Obama’s military bureaucrats are harassing Christians in the military – but this is really no different than what Obama’s IRS did. Its not part of a grand conspiracy – its just liberals being their little, fascist selves…with the added “benefit” that in the military, the troops gotta obey. Makes it easier for asinine things to get done faster.
I’ve been having an argument with some fellow conservatives over at a different message board and I’m a bit perplexed – am I really the only conservative out there who realizes that as long as we’re tagged with defending the rich, we’re never going to win sufficient power to change things? Remember, liberals have got us in the minds of low info voters as being the people who defend the likes of George Soros, even though Soros is a money-bags for the left. We have to break away from that – and we can only do it in the minds of low info voters by attacking some of the rich: that species of rich (like Soros) who don’t make money by producing worthwhile goods and services, but by manipulating our corrupt, controlled financial markets. Arguing for tax cuts and cuts in government is all well and good – but it won’t get us much support in a nation where less than half pays income taxes and more than half gets some sort of government benefit…we’ve got to show the people that a corrupt alliance of Big Government and Big Corporation is robbing us blind for the benefit of the liberal governing class and liberal financial sharks like Soros.
Anyone argue with a liberal lately? I got in to a Twitter argument and it came out that the liberal really, honestly felt he was helping the poor by paying his taxes. This came out when I made the Tweet: “want to help the poor? Ok, there’s a Catholic Charities near you”, and then provided a link for Catholic Charities USA. The guy got a bit miffed with me – he pays his taxes and that helps the poor plenty so he doesn’t have to go and help the poor. It is a very weird mindset – but it does explain a lot. All you have to do is pay your taxes and you’ve discharged your duty to your brothers and sisters…
