President Barrack Obama on his never ending quest to destroy the mandate given to him by the silent majority just doesn’t seem to get it! His polls are down so low you would have to borrow a BP Gulf Robotic Submarine to go lower and then even then you may not reach that low! All of this is because he wants to hug and cuddle Republicans who are on a mission to destroy him and our party!
First we had companies that were to big to fail, now do we have Generals who are to big to fail? General McChrystal may be important to our war effort but he is dispensable! I do not believe army generals are to be puppets of the President. But there is a Constitutional forum for a General to disagree with the President in public! That forum is before a Congressional Committee. I always resented the way generals would act as if they belonged to Bush and spoke of the “Government” as being the same as the “administration”!
It is important to remember that all military officers receive their commission from the Congress of the United States not the President. The President is the Commander – In Chief. They are placed under him but if called before Congress they MUST answer questions of the Congress that gave them their commission as officers!
Remember when Republicans were screaming at President Obama because he bowed to the Japanese Emperor? What about Rep. Joe Barton bowing to BP Executives? True many Republicans pushed him to back away but why do Republicans want a cap on spill liabilities yet are against the “Cap on Trade Bill”? To use the conservative rhetoric of the 60’s when I was a teen, “We live in an era of licentious permissiveness”! That’s right but not because of sex! We live in an era where the CORPORATE COLLECTIVISTS want to undermine INDIVIDUAL FREEDOM! They regard the Gulf as their bathtub for licentious play while they screw mother earth and the lives of what one of their executives called “The little people”!
Yes it is scary that Alvin Greene has won the South Carolina Democratic Primary. I would love to see a debate between Alvin Greene and Sarah Palin. Amazing that Sarah Palin was running for Vice President, an office just a heartbeat away from succession to the Presidency! Yet the right winger’s whined that Sarah Palin was being asked trick questions such as:
Well Alvin Greene is not a parochial hillbilly with just limited knowledge of South Carolina!
Alvin Greene can see Georgia from his house!
Let’s see now how can we Democrats go out of our way to loose! Well first we had Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi gaining the leadership of the Senate and House then pig headily letting the Republicans just roll over them! We could have refused to fund the war in Iraq but Nancy Pelosi would not have any of it!
We could have held the nation spell bound with endless TV newscasts of Congressional committees investigating:
- George Bush and his failure to complete his National Guard service requirements.
- Corporate selling of our technology to the enemies of America!
- Corporations avoiding taxes by setting up off shore head quarters!
- How we got into Iraq and endless gleeful days of news cycle coverage concerning the Iraqi War’s contribution to our economic mess.
- Corporate off shoring of both white collar technical jobs and blue collar jobs.

Ronald Reagan spoke movingly about the “Shining City On The Hill”. The problem is he doesn’t mention that city is only for the top 2% while the American Middle Class lives in the valley below! The current oil crises is a perfect example! In the video below one of the oil workers is afraid because he fears the company is cutting corners on safety! But the guy NEEDS A JOB! Yes folks this the “FREEDOM” of the Republican Party’s view of America! Some of you may remember the old Star Trek episode with the shinning city in the air called “Stratos”! They lived in luxury while the overwhelming majority lived on the planet’s surface in horrible conditions to work the mines!
