|OUR OBAMA DRAMA|
November 6, 2012:
Today, we as a nation collectively failed our children and forefathers. I had tried to the best of my very limited ability to inform a public which was more interested in Honey Boo-Boo and gotcha moments than weighty and substantial arguments for the continued survival and prosperity of our once great nation.
The twilight is soon coming, as the light fades on this once great experiment ....the dimly shining beacon of hope for people willing and wanting to exert themselves for the betterment of their family and community. Today we took our foot out from the doorway, and allowed a door to firmly shut. We stood by and cooked smores, marveling in the high flickering flames and flying embers of the bridge we found burning. Tomorrow we’ll go to work, school, or more likely just have to get off our couch to go to the mailbox for the small stipend the government is willing to bribe us with to waste our lives and be good servants.
Congratulations Gen X, Gen Y, Gen Whatever….you have now become the Meekest Generation. The Generation least likely to succeed. The most easily led…The least easily informed….the most undeserving of the freedoms and gifts bestowed to you by your forefathers and God.

As I wake today, I know you may see my dire prediction as harsh and alarmist. You may say the vote was nearly evenly split...doesn't that still leave time for a change? I predicate my forecast based on the fact that entitlement spending is only accelerating, and that we only have half of this nation with any skin in the game (paying taxes) at this time. That vital block will continue to dwindle these next four years. A majority of "entitled" Americans will ride the back of the producers of this nation like a faithful horse until exhaustion. The clock is ticking...the light is fading...

One reason I have been told to not fret by friends is the "gridlock factor" of D.C., and the fact that nothing will get done... My counter-point is that the vehicle of our destruction is in motion (Obamacare, and every other program adding a Trillion dollars a year to our debt). Our opportunity to inject some sanity in our fiscal policy has evaporated...It doesn't matter if a single piece of legislation doesn't get passed...we are inevitably going to crash the system that is the underpinning of capitalism here in the States without some huge moment of realization by the powers that be. There has been no inclination by this administration to realistically deal with the situation. Entitlement expenditures WILL bankrupt this nation without some plan to overhaul the system. Anyone who has presented a reasonable plan has been labeled a villain by this President and his minions. Kicking the can down the road has been the default, but the road ends soon. This president has also seen fit to use agencies (EPA, etc.) and Presidential Directives in an insanely unprecedented way to just ignore Congress and the desires of the people of this nation. He has "crafted new laws" or obliterated existing ones at his own whim to further his agenda....Country, Congress and People be damned.
One thing a friend said rings eerily true: "We get the government we deserve".....we vote them in, and we harvest what we sow. This lesson will punish the people of our country for generations to come. At this point, I almost want to see the whole thing explode in a huge fiery mess, just to see the faces of the 51%, or so, that let this happen. Their programs will evaporate, too....their "Obama Phones" won't get a dial tone...they won't be able to watch Honey Boo-Boo on their government provided cable. It certainly would make me feel better....but it still affects so many who don't deserve this...who balance their checkbooks, pay their bills and follow the rules. The tragedy is too much to truly fathom, and will slowly play out in front of us as we stare at the boob tube, and watch the fires burn as the entitled decry "racism" or "the rich are killing us" as they wave their inoperative phones in the air.
Guess I haven't found that ray of hope yet....sorry, folks.

So, Months have passed. Autopsies have been accomplished. Fingers have been pointed. A "kinder, gentler" message has been crafted...assuming we, as a nation are too stupid or P.C. to be able to take a dose of reality. All the great civilizations that have risen and fallen have seen their Swan Song play its final notes as they become embroiled in distracting, divisive conflicts or spectacles...allowing the systems that instilled their societies with greatness to atrophy, wither and die, while the throngs were oblivious. By the time the generally well-meaning sheep hear the explosions and see the bricks and mortar of their foundations raining down upon themselves, it is too late.
What do we see as the distraction for our once-great society today? Could it be some silly redefining of an institution like Marriage? Maybe an argument that law breakers should not only receive clemency for their mis-deeds, but be rewarded over those who follow the laws of our land? What about a rather insignificant reduction in the INCREASE of our annual expenditures requiring some tours to be closed for show? These issues, and others like them, lead and end our newscasts. And to make sure the masses don't grow restless, our government has printing presses running day and night to artificially keep inflation low, and investments strong....Nevermind the reckoning to come as the presses either run out of paper or our monetary system collapses under its own weight.
Time to practice your fiddle, oh Nero.
