I enjoy writing about Senator Bill Nelson, but he is not the only drag on our nation. It’s been suggested, by a fellow blogger, that I turn my focus on the chief thief; Barack Hussein Obama. Okay, I said, you write it, I’ll post it.
My guest blogger is retired Army and hails from Alaska. We’ll call him RockNuke. He may be shooting from the hip, but you’ll get the point, there’s trouble in River City, and it begins with a “B”.
Okay Rock, take it away—
Like many Americans, I am tired and scared of the direction our country has taken. Many don’t care to admit that they’re scared, some don’t know that they should be scared—that’s fine—I’m scared for them. We have a President in the White House whose actions are cracking the once strong foundation of our culture, heritage, and our constitution. Obama is ripping apart the very core values that are uniquely American. Until recently it could have been argued that we are the greatest country in the world. Now we have a president who figuratively, and literally, bows to every foreign leader he gets next to; and crack, we lose a little more.
He had his “World Apology Tour”and apologized to the world for our arrogance, bam there’s another crack. To make matter worse his wife, Michelle Obama, gets into the act by saying “ I’ve never been proud of America until (sic) Obama was elected”; kaboom, another crack. Ain’t that sweet, coming from the first lady. With all these cracks tearing away at the very fabric of America soon little will remain of a once great nation.
Obama took office when the country was less than what it should be. Okay, we all got it, can we now please stop blaming Bush? Obama sounds like a 6-year-old when he breaks his mother’s favorite vase, “He won’t take the blame but instead points his finger at his brother(s). Grow a fricken back bone Obama. The scary part is the media loves him. He can do no wrong. After all the crap he has done to cripple the US, he gets a write-up on how he is a “Baby Whisperer”. The media are still drooling. Who gives a rat’s ass?
During his visit to El Paso, TX, he gave a speech about border control and asked “what does the Right want; moats and alligators?” Big laugh, maybe he’ll do stand-up comedy when he leaves office—personally I think he’s a jack-ass. If Bush would have said that, the media would have wanted his head on a platter.
Obama is pushing laws that will bring us closer to socialism, which will eventually have us looking like Europe. Free everything should be his motto; free healthcare, free education, free food, free housing. European style government brought to you by Obama. Wait, is there a cost to all this? Yes, inflation. Gas prices have sky-rocketed, and that will soar the costs of every consumable product in our country, with the poorest suffering the most. The upside is free healthcare. Did I say free? The downside is you won’t be able to afford the gas to get yourself to the doctor. Obama thinks he is an idea man. One of his brilliant ideas to save energy is proper tire inflation, and don’t forget the Cash for Clunkers debacle. Another highlight of his presidency is the stimulus package and the promise of jobs. That idea has more dents in it than his Cash for Clunkers deal. What a momentous waste of money, but again, loved by the Left.
Depending on who you talk to it seems our current government is attempting to take away many of our rights to keep and bear arms. Recently the EPA tried a backdoor tactic of banning lead rounds in bullets and shotgun shells. If they can’t ban the gun they take away the bullets. (If they come to take mine, I’ll give them back, but it will be one at a time). Banning bullets is equivalent to banning gasoline. Thankfully the ban on lead ammo lasted less than 24 hours. Of course the liberal left, including the media, applauded the ban. This isn’t their first shot (pardon the pun) at controlling firearms, and it won’t be the last. My guess is their next scheme will include raising taxes on ammo. Each attempt seems to get them a little closer to the target, and personally I’m tired of being the target. We either remove the current administration or we get used to having a bulls-eye on our back.
The Left was so upset at Bush while he was in office because of the economy, the war, Gitmo, etc. They mocked him, made jokes about him and wanted him to convict him for war crimes. Other than taking a hand full of troops out of Iraq, and move them to Afghanistan, Obama has done many of the same things as Bush did and we’re still in Gitmo. Where is the Left’s response to all this? (I hear crickets chirping). Besides, the democrats had control over both the House and the Senate for the last 2 years of the Bush presidency. When Pelosi took the helm in 2008, she promised to raise the bar. We all remember her saying “we will drain the swamp that is congress and cut unnecessary spending”. Yeah, like that would happen. Oh, by the way, she was the one who brilliantly stated about Obamacare, “We must pass this bill so we can know what is in it”.
Glenn Beck has pointed out that our best times are still ahead of us. I don’t consider myself a pessimist, but I think he is wrong. Obama was quoted as saying “we are going to have to go hand-to-hand combat if the Republicans win in Nov”. That isn’t something a Leader of the Free World should say. He sounds more like a spoiled child.
We are going down a rabbit hole that we might not be able to get out of. Eat me or drink me as the sign says, go big or go home. I am afraid for this country, but I am not backing down.
