INEPTOCRACY (in-ep-toc’-ra-cy): a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least

capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are

rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

Sound like any government you know?………..

 This Is How I See It

 

 

What Is The Real Obama Agenda In this article I want to vent some frustration of mine developed while listening to the various pundits excuse the Obama administration for what they think are mistakes due to lack of competence and inexperience.

 

This is the way I see it.  At first we cut Obama some slack because he was new to the office. We gave him a pass on some of the policies that he put in place. Policies that it was clear to see from the outset were destined to fail, and indeed, produce the exact opposite result from what they were portrayed.

 What Is The Real Obama Agenda

But after a while anybody with reasonable intelligence would see that no administration could be this dumb.

The only possible conclusion would be that they were following an agenda that is designed to destroy the economy of the United States in every way, and every policy that has been put in place is ultimately designed to destroy this country as we know it.

Counting On Ignorance Of American Public

My guess is that they are banking on the ignorance of the American public. An ignorance that has been intentionally created in the government school systems in order to dumb down the populace.

 Obama’s Job – Teleprompter Reader

One thing that shocked me at first (but now I have become used to it) are the blatant lies that this administration puts out from the Obama Teleprompter.

 

There are just a few of the right wing pundits that have the guts to point this out. The only two that come to mind are Limbaugh and Savage.

 Orwell’s 1984

I’m old enough to have read Orwell’s book 1984 and Animal Farm when I was in high school. I’m quite sure it’s no longer required reading. The way I see it, if Obama is reelected, this country is finished and I am making plans to move to South America.

 Obama Not Really In Charge

As I stated before in a prior blog, I don’t believe Obama is actually in charge of creating any of the big policies put forth by this administration. I believe that he and his staff pretty much follow their orders from on high.

A friend just sent me an article (see below) which sets forth many thoughts that I have had since this president came to office. However, I will go even further than this article (see my comments after the article below).

Obama: The Affirmative Action President

By Matt Patterson

Years from now, historians may regard the 2008 election of Barack Obama as an inscrutable and disturbing phenomenon, a baffling breed of mass hysteria akin perhaps to the witch craze of the Middle Ages.  How, they will wonder, did a man so devoid of professional accomplishment beguile so many into thinking he could manage the world’s largest economy, direct the world’s most powerful military, execute the world’s most consequential job?

Imagine a future historian examining Obama’s pre-presidential life: ushered into and through the Ivy League despite unremarkable grades and test scores along the way; a cushy non-job as a “community organizer”; a brief career as a state legislator devoid of legislative achievement (and in fact nearly devoid of his attention, so often did he vote “present”); and finally an unaccomplished single term in United States Senate, the entirety of which was devoted to his presidential ambitions.  He left no academic legacy in academia, authored no signature legislation as legislator.

And then there is the matter of his troubling associations: the white-hating, America-loathing preacher who for decades served as Obama’s “spiritual mentor”; a real-life, actual terrorist who served as Obama’s colleague and political sponsor.  It is easy to imagine a future historian looking at it all and asking: how on Earth was such a man elected president?

Not content to wait for history, the incomparable Norman Podhoretz addressed the question recently in the Wall Street Journal:

To be sure, no white candidate who had close associations with an outspoken hater of America like Jeremiah Wright and an unrepentant terrorist like Bill Ayers would have lasted a single day. But because Mr. Obama was black, and therefore entitled in the eyes of liberaldom to have hung out with protesters against various American injustices, even if they were a bit extreme, he was given a pass.

Let that sink in: Obama was given a pass — held to a lower standard — because of the color of his skin.  Podhoretz continues:

And in any case, what did such ancient history matter when he was also articulate and elegant and (as he himself had said) “non-threatening,” all of which gave him a fighting chance to become the first black president and thereby to lay the curse of racism to rest?

Podhoretz puts his finger, I think, on the animating pulse of the Obama phenomenon — affirmative action.  Not in the legal sense, of course.  But certainly in the motivating sentiment behind all affirmative action laws and regulations, which are designed primarily to make white people, and especially white liberals, feel good about themselves.

Unfortunately, minorities often suffer so that whites can pat themselves on the back.  Liberals routinely admit minorities to schools for which they are not qualified, yet take no responsibility for the inevitable poor performance and high drop-out rates which follow.  Liberals don’t care if these minority students fail; liberals aren’t around to witness the emotional devastation and deflated self esteem resulting from the racist policy that is affirmative action.  Yes, racist.  Holding someone to a separate standard merely because of the color of his skin — that’s affirmative action in a nutshell, and if that isn’t racism, then nothing is.  And that is what America did to Obama.

True, Obama himself was never troubled by his lack of achievements, but why would he be?  As many have noted, Obama was told he was good enough for Columbia despite undistinguished grades at Occidental; he was told he was good enough for the US Senate despite a mediocre record in Illinois; he was told he was good enough to be president despite no record at all in the Senate.  All his life, every step of the way, Obama was told he was good enough for the next step, in spite of ample evidence to the contrary.  What could this breed if not the sort of empty  narcissism on display every time Obama speaks?

In 2008, many who agreed that he lacked executive qualifications nonetheless raved about Obama’s oratory skills, intellect, and cool character.  Those people — conservatives included — ought now to be deeply embarrassed.  The man thinks and speaks in the hoariest of clichés, and that’s when he has his teleprompter in front of him; when the prompter is absent he can barely think or speak at all.  Not one original idea has ever issued from his mouth — it’s all warmed-over Marxism of the kind that has failed over and over again for 100 years.

And what about his character?  Obama is constantly blaming anything and everything else for his troubles.  Bush did it; it was bad luck; I inherited this mess.  It is embarrassing to see a president so willing to advertise his own powerlessness, so comfortable with his own incompetence.  But really, what were we to expect?  The man has never been responsible for anything, so how do we expect him to act responsibly?

In short: our president is a small and small-minded man, with neither the temperament nor the intellect to handle his job.  When you understand that, and only when you understand that, will the current erosion of liberty and prosperity make sense.  It could not have gone otherwise with such a man in the Oval Office.

But hey, at least we got to feel good about ourselves for a little while.  And really, isn’t that all that matters these days?

MY THOUGHTS ON THIS

Ok, gutsy article. When you go against this “gangster administration” , you can probably expect some retribution. Hats off to Matt Patterson.

Now I’ll stick my neck out and add some thoughts that I’ve had since the beginning of the Obama Administration.

Go ahead and put on your tinfoil hats because I’m going to go into the “conspiracy realm”.

I don’t believe this president, Barack Obama, has ever been really in charge of anything. Probably going back to the time when some very powerful and shadowy figures found this guy, maybe on a street corner in Hawaii. It looks to me like this guy has been groomed and indoctrinated for the position that he now holds. He is the front man, the teleprompter reader, and pretty much follows his orders along with the advisors that he has in the White House.

Someday we may find that the wheels were greased and maybe the appropriate people were paid off in order to get him through the most prestigious universities in the United States.

Have you ever thought about why everything this administration puts in place will ultimately cause the destruction of the economy and the middle class in the United States of America? Could it be that that is the agenda?

Your comments are always welcome.

Govt Shutdown Sep 30, 2011

Posted by GONV (Grizzled Old Nam Vet)

I just felt compelled to get something out in a post regarding the pending possible government shut down on Friday, September 30 ( sort of a catharsis if you well).

 

Here’s the way I see this whole budget impasse from a simplistic point of view. First, it is very frustrating for me to see how the left and their partners, the left-wing media try to pin this on the Republicans and the new Tea Party representatives in the House and Senate.

 

Just imagine that you have a family member that is completely addicted to cocaine. You hold a family intervention to attempt to do something about this cocaine addiction which is destroying the entire household. Of course the cocaine addict would be the entire Democrat party and the left. Indeed, their entire life blood  is the continuous stream of taxes flowing into the federal coffers (this of course would be the cocaine). This is the life blood of the Democrat party, and to threaten to cut off this flow will cause a fight to the death.

 

My advice to the Republicans and the Tea Party representatives in the House and Senate would be to just hold the line. Disregard the media and their threats of Republican blame and just go for it. A  full government shutdown may not be a bad thing, at least for a month or so so we can see where to cut the waste from this bloated government beast that has evolved over the last 50 years or so.

There – I feel a little better now,
