In response to a post on the story on “The Hill” about the new Homeland Security power grab.
Seriously, how inept does a person have to be before you sycophants wake up and smell the house burning. The current president is incompetent, his cabinet is a collection of the worst American politics has to offer, and then there is the radical liberal leadership in Congress that has been in power for the last 4 years. And what do we have to show for this stellar leadership paradigm?
A divided country, a wrecked economy, a disasterous foreign policy and a world on the brink of collapse.
Who was it that forced banks to make loans to people who clearly couldn’t pay them? Under who’s administration was the Community Reinvestment Act (in 1977)? Who were the apologists for Fanny and Freddie? Who have been dismantling the private sector one new regulation at a time? Who is it again that thinks businesses should pay more, cutting their profits and thus discouraging them from expanding and or keep people employed? Who is it that takes money from unions, who spend their time and money trying to run businesses into the ground? Who’s friends and supporters are making money hand of fist in the worse economy in decades? Who is it that blocks illegal immigrant control, but favors putting Americans in jail for jaywalking (or downloading music)? Who are the ones making money off the “greening” of America and the world? Who is making money off “enhanced security”? Who is making money off the hatred of others?
While there is plenty of blame to go around, on both sides of the aisle the fact is that banks made loans to people who couldn’t pay them back. Fanny and Freddie have been in trouble for years. The Community Reinvestment Act was created in 1977 under whose administration? Ah yes, that would be Jimma’ Carter, the second worst president in the history of the country. He just loves Obama, wonder why?
The Bush administration said as long ago as 2003 that there were problems but the know it alls (Barney Frank, Little Chucky Schumer , Chris Dodds and others) refused to listen. These individuals have been playing partisan payback for more years than I can recall. They are the ones who needed to be replaced this year but the moochers in their districts couldn’t bring themselves to disconnect from the government teat. After all as one person reminded us, they always bring home the bacon. The fact that they steal it from some else doesn’t matter much. After all it’s all about what my country can do for ME. I’m surprised Jack Kennedy’s grave spinning hasn’t set off an earthquake in Washington.
Yeah, this administration and it’s enabliers are destroying America from within. This is why learning history is important. We are following the tortured path laid out by Rome. This is thanks to a cadre of former and present basket weaving, bead wearing, pot smoking professors and teachers who have “educated” generations of Americans who not only don’t know anything about the ancient past, they don’t know anything about their country’s past.
Ignorance is never bliss and wickedness never was happiness.
