The Great Polarizer!!!!


Let’s face it, Obama is not who he said he was… he has never been nor will he ever be the “great uniter”… instead he is the “omnipotent polarizer”. He has created more polarization in this Country than any single person I can recall in my 50 years in this Country. And Obama has done all this in 100 days. Bush took years, and I know a lot of people hated the guy… fine! Everyone is entitled to their opinion and I accept that people hated Bush. I would not even be so bold as to pretend Bush brought us together as a Country which was his mantra when running for office. But for at least a couple years, we were a united Country. Sure much of the uniting revolved around 911, but most normal American’s rallied around our Commander and supported his goals. Even Congress’ most dim-wit Democrats went along with his goals, and supported his efforts to oust Saddam Hussein. But at some point along the way the popularity of the war faded and people turned against Bush. So be it…

But Obama is alienating people on all sides every single day… the guy just can’t help himself. I have been studying this phenomenom to see if Obama is simply the anti-American… in other words everything we have valued as American is now to be tossed aside in favor of a clean slate… or a new vision of our future. This might be a very good strategy for all I know… and I hope that this is indeed strategic rather than simply a series of incredible blunders, gaffe’s and just plain stupidity. I fear that latter is indeed the situation, i.e. Obama is floudering around looking for answers to complex issues, and pretending that his total lack of forward momentum is strategic rather than blunders.

I just can’t fathom how all these stupid iniatives, blunders, gaffes, insane policies, failed policies, political correctness can possibly be strategic and calculated. I just look at this 100 day mess, and as a casual observer see anarchy in the Obama administration. There are daily flip flops, no core values, no uniquely American values, nothing to inspire… just empty rhetoric and bumper sticker platitudes.

Folks, change is not always good, and I think by and large, Obama will be the modern day Jimmy Carter. History tends to repeat itself. With this in mind, I suspect some international event will show Obama to be the weak President he truly is, and again America will be ashamed and embarrassed as we were in the pathetic days of President Carter. America will be shown to be unwilling to “pay any price for freedom” as John Kennedy espoused in 1962. And just like with Carter, another Reaganesque type person will emerge, and again the silly empty rhetoric of liberalism will be tossed aside in favor of principles and core values. And again we will all fly our flags with pride. I pray I am right for if I am wrong, God help us all.

Day 84 of Captivity in the Socialist States of America…

This is my initial discussion making the case for changing the use of USA to Socialist States of America or SSA… Each day of captivity, I will chronicle examples of socialist changes in our economy caused by our government. I have decided to change my personal reference of the USA to “the former USA”. From now going forward I am a captive of the SSA. As a proud American in the Reagan tradition, I pledge to defeat the socialists that now overwhelm our National and State governments. And yes we have officially entered the BIZARRO WORLD!!!

And now the NEWS!!!

Folks each day we are moving closer and closer to a European style socialist economy… don’t believe me? Okay… Rick Wagner of GM was forced out as CEO because the government, i.e. Obama didn’t think he was up to the task of running GM. Oh… you think this was a good idea. Maybe? But since when did the government have the audicity let alone right… to force a CEO out of office? Seriously. Socialism is largely defined as government ownership of the means of production. In this case not only is the government owning GM through its bailout, but it is now higher in the pecking order than GM’s Board of Directors. BOD’s have always been in charge of determining the viability of a CEO, but now the government is doing this? Sure you might say the government loaned them all this money so they now have the right to call the shots. I ask… do you really really want the government telling companies how to run their business? Seriously. Keep in mind, we (through our elected leaders i.e. the Federal government) are currently sitting on $10trillion in debt, and by the time Obama is gone, we will have another $10trillion (not my number CBO’s number)… so you think an entity that by all normal standards of accounting is bankrupt should tell others how to run their business? Come on… you know the folly of that thinking. You can come up with all kinds of “feel good” reasons why I am wrong, but you know deep down, I am right. And you also know that we are moving to a socialist type economy.

There are no winners or losers in a socialist economy… everyone is equal. Sounds good!!! WRONG… why do you think America invents everything. Because there are winners and losers in our economy!!! Take away incentives to WIN, and you lose creativity and ingenuity.

Folks even Europe is now moving away from Socialism… both France and Germany elected Conservatives meanwhile we elect a Socialist. WHAT!!! Sarkozy from France openly talks in conservitive terms… WHO WOULD EVER HAVE BELIEVED A FRENCHMAN WOULD BE CONSERVATIVE!!!! Meanwhile we move in the other direction… INSANE IN THE MEMBRANE!!!

So now my RANTINGS are going to chronicle our daily march to Obama’s socialist nirvana. This is a topic I have been dabbling with, but now… much like our Carter Hostage Crisis days where each day of captivity was chronicled by “Nightline”, I will now chronicle our Socialist Hostage Crisis.

Reporting from my underground bunker in Aurora Illinois this is Day 84 of captivity
