Or so the old saying (correctly) goes. This being the case, there must be not only a major housing shortage in the empire of the damned, but a preponderance of progressives as well.
Just a thought, while listening/reading about the current goings on inside the beltway. It seems the Senate has “re-written” the rules as to what constitutes a majority … effectively all but killing off the filibuster as a tool. There were supposed “good intentions” behind this, in reality it was little more than an exercise in exerting control, of grabbing (more) power.
Meanwhile, the Pretender in Chief, in between golf outings and jet setting hither and yon, stopped to deliver a speech commemorating the events of some 150 years ago, at a little place called Gettysburg. A number of folks around the net, and elsewhere, noted the petulant POTUS neglected to include the words “Under God” in quoting Lincoln’s original address. After having been exposed to the former part-time Senator from the People’s Republik of Illinois (“Where our governors make our license plates!” © ), up to the present day, why is this surprising? His past record indicates he has no real affiliation with the Judeo-Christian God, other than lip service and snoozing through the twisted theological ramblings of his “former paster”, on the south side of Chicago. There is a stronger case to be made he is, if not a practicing Muslim, at least via childhood indoctrination, very favorably predisposed to same.
Add to this mix the various rumblings of impeachments (to either the AG, Holder, and or POTUS himself), if one believes the various links provided by Drudge and others. Or the threat of charges (criminal or otherwise) against other members of Obama’s clown car cabinet/administration.
Is it any wonder why so many have given up the ghost as far as blogging goes? Aside from the fact it has become increasingly hard to keep up with what new indiscretion, transgression, or acts of suppression are brought to light with each passing day. There comes a point when it all sends one beyond a sense of surrealism … and straight into the Twilight Zone. (Bypassing the Outer Limits entirely!)
It has past the point of becoming enraged after hearing all of the above, and each new “misadventure” with each passing day.
President is either in direct violation of, is out and out ignoring, or both, any number of sections and or amendments to the Constitution. “Congress and the Senate, after deliberation, follow suit.”
Any number of passed cabinet members and or leaders of the various “alphabet agencies” are alleged/suspected of doing same.
The charge of Treason, as proscribed in the Constitution, has been met or exceeded by any number of the above, up to and including POTUS.
Yet nothing is done. Words are spoken, air is moved, ink (real or virtual) is allowed to dry on paper.
I fear we, as Americans, are far too comfortable, that our standard of living is so high, there is a much longer distance to fall before we become willing to bring about the real change needed to make those who are allowed to govern realize they serve at our pleasure, and not theirs.
My desire to write is returning. Perhaps not so much out of anger, as it is a somewhat sadden bemusement. I am old enough to remember what it was like to live in a time when we at least thought we had some control over our collective destiny? When one thought their vote still mattered (at least outside the city of Chicago and the county of Cook). Where you may have suspected there was some level of corruption going on in government, but that at the end of the day, even those bastards recognized “We are America damn it! And when we recognize a threat to us, our culture, our country, we will stop the internal bickering and collectively kick your ass!”
Heck, file this whole thing as a bit of rambling from an old retired Sailor…trying to get away from good intentions…going straight to “I aim to misbehave!”
