No Mas Pantalones

My oh my, will it ever end?  It seems like every day brings out another video from the past where our president is recorded making an emphatic statement that is so clear it cannot be misunderstood.  He takes a stand usually with moral indignation that if anyone takes the opposite position it is exploiting the people at the very least, and worse, an unpatriotic traitor.  And of course the problem is that he, yes the president, becomes the very one doing exactly what he himself condemned.  And that with a straight face.

Those Mysterious Beatles

A lot of news lately has focused on the 50th anniversary of the American invasion of the Beatles in 1964, and I remember watching the Ed Sullivan show during that historic event (I’m as old as the Beatles).  At the time I sort of felt like Egypt watching the locusts come, and wondered how in the world this group of simplistic singers and musicians could ever be so popular.  Of course I wondered the same thing about Ed Sullivan, bless his heart.

Born Conservative

The history of mankind has a common theme that runs through almost every civilization and social construct that defines human relationships.  There are those who want to be leaders and rule over everyone either by linage, divine right, or other means, and those who resent the rulers and want to be free.  Not everyone agrees, ever.  The best situation was a benevolent leader who allowed some freedom and ruled with a modicum of compassion while not being a psychopath.

And so it goes between the two poles with circumstances determining the full extent of either one.  With the emergence of democracies and republics, not “peoples republics,” the polarity has not abated, except currently elected factions, at least for now, are not setting up guillotines.  The struggle between freedom and control goes on with us “peasants” in the middle trying to determine who is telling the truth and/or trying to buy votes.

Emperor Barack Obama (“Rasobamian”)

I believe there may be a solution for getting rid of our wannabe “King” Obama.  Just about monthly he makes some kind of declaration to bypass Congress and the will of the American people (many of those who voted for him really didn’t know what they were doing) to further his Neocom agenda of ruling us peons.  He changes the law at will, a la Hugo, and with the exception of patriotic bloggers, some brave congressmen and one news organization, no one of influence seems to care.  If we start now, by the time he finishes his term in office he might be ready to go, as in leave the U.S.

President Obama: The Broken Window

It is common in everyday experience to witness deterioration.  The worst thing for a car is not to drive it.  The worst thing for our bodies is not to move them.  The worst thing for a brain is not to use it.  The worst thing for a house is to avoid maintenance.  Fixing things, constant upkeep and moving forward is the only way to avoid going backwards.  The Second Law of Thermodynamics is constantly at work.  Things run down.
