Only Fools Rush In
We were blind sided by 9/11, Bush sounded the alarm, and we were all to willing to surrender a significant slice of individual freedom. With bogus wire taps and illegal confiscations of personal liberty, via the Patriot Act, the attacks became politically lucrative for the 43rd President. I don’t subscribe to the whole “ It was an inside job…” theory, but just take a look at the economic hysteria that Bush handed off to Obama, he put the ball right in his hands. I guess the former President was so preoccupied solidifying this hoax, that is the war on terror, that he was powerless to stop the impending economic nose dive.
This recession was not inherited by Obama, it was created for him, thus ensuring a new and and substantially unstoppable ideology, neo- socialism. This is not our grand parents socialism, this change we can believe in, is being peddled as the new alternative to capitalism. I can survey 19 out of 20 co-workers, all but one might refer to a socialist as being a compilation of guests invited to the Christmas party, err I mean the Season Holiday’s party.
Unless we are diligent and keep ourselves educated, we will never truly know when the sky is falling. The way Obama is capitalizing on catastrophe is shameful, but it is far from just “dumb luck”. Bush wrapped this scenario up with a beautiful red bow, this bone had Rahm Emanuel drooling like a dog, I think he said it best, “You never want a serious crisis to go to waste. And what I mean by that is an opportunity to do things you think you could not do before.” Does anybody see the formula?
Crisis =Panic=Unabated Power and Political Gain.
Through the uncorked and deeply biased media the government has exploited our gnat like attention spans, now they are playing the role of schoolyard bully, demanding our lunch money, and we are complying. Earlier this week our less than pious Attorney General Eric Holder boldly proclaimed, “ Though this nation proudly thought of itself as an ethnic melting pot, in things racial we have always been and we, I believe continue to be, in too many ways essentially a nation of cowards.”
We seem to have forgotten that these people are our employees, they work for us, and they too, have lost sight of just who pays their bills (maybe they thought we just paid their taxes)
