There is a reason I blog only once a week – working at being a husband, father of 4, and running one business while getting another off the ground gets busy. Then in all of this is making time to stay active in our great nations political structure leaves only so much time for the written ramblings I so enjoy. There is another reason as well – sometimes it takes a week for the BS to die down to get the real perspectives on what is happening. The words “knee jerk reaction” have jerk at the heart of the phrase for a reason.
The shootings in Tuscon that killed 6 and wounded US Congresswoman Gabby Gifford was senseless and shameless. What happened in Arizona last Saturday was not a right-wing conspiracy, it was not a hit put out by Sarah Palin (sorry Olbermann), and it was not conservatives acting out against what had been the most power grabbing Congress in US history. It was simply some drug crazed nut who went over the edge. Period. I know this because conservatives know how to win political wars at the ballot box and we did exactly that on November 2, 2010 and will continue on into 2012 and beyond. We do not need senseless bloodshed. The world has enough.
Now don’t get me wrong – if the left saw an opportunity to sacrifice a political lamb to pass a law that was founded in corruption and power – I think they would do it. However, not even the Obamunists are to the point of shooting their own and other innocents to get their way. At least I don’t think…..
In case your surfing Black’s Dictionary for the definition of Obamunism, you won’t find it just yet. Let me give you the proper clarification on this term as there are many.
The definition of Obamunism :
Obamunism is the The high-tax, big government, economic growth-killing, centrally planned economic regime favored by Barack Hussein Obama. The worship of the one true God, Barack Obama. Followers of this religion believe in Change, Hope, and Change. The socialist and marxist teachings as defined by Barack Obama. The economic theories of the re-distribution of wealth by The Anointed One (see also Barry & the Obamanites). Also – a “soft” tyranny.
Why is this term important to review? Well, simply put, after the fanny waxing that occurred to Barry and his bunch on November 2nd, reality set in that the next two years might be a bit bumpy. Every opportunity must be seized to ensure that Obamunism will reign for the Anointed One and his progeny. Thus the left pulled out the typical “take away the plebiscites freedom guide” that is standard issue for liberalism nowadays and went to work. Freedom Grab Numero Uno – Guns . Editors Note – imagine the following in the voice of the Wicked Witch or Nancy Pelosi, whichever works for you. “Well, we just have to have them locked up and put away to prevent such tragedies.” Reality check is that if more people had been packing, I daresay even holstering in the open, Loughner might have thought twice about what he did or maybe someone could have shot him early in the rampage. Freedom Grab Numero Dos – Freedom of Speech. The press began to blast every form of conservatism after the shootings from blaming Sarah Palin and Rush Limbaugh, the Tea Party Movement, etc. All things conservative were at blame and we conservatives should just shut the hell up and let the liberals run things they way they want. Forget about the fact the very tirades from the press are in themselves hateful.
But then The Anointed One, in his speech at the memorial service for those who had died, reminded us that lack of civility did not cause the tragedy, he said, but “only a more civil and honest public discourse can help us face up to our challenges as a nation.”
Hope spoke on: “But what we can’t do is use this tragedy as one more occasion to turn on one another. As we discuss these issues, let each of us do so with a good dose of humility. Rather than pointing fingers or assigning blame, let us use this occasion to expand our moral imaginations, to listen to each other more carefully, to sharpen our instincts for empathy, and remind ourselves of all the ways our hopes and dreams are bound together…”
The words of the Anointed One garnered great praise from both the left and the right as a peaceful gesture to make America more civil in its discourse and encourage…
Oh Lord, let me go puke.
Democrat Congressman Paul Wellstone from Minnesota died in a plane crash on October 25, 2002. A memorial service was held on October 29, 2002 just a few days before the mid-term elections. It was supposed to be a tasteful memorial service to the late Congressmen. What it turned into was a Democrat rally at the expense of a dead Congressmen and his family. It was shameful and disgraceful. In case you had forgotten just how far these people will go, go back 9 years
I bring up the Wellstone Memorial for a very simple reason, does this look like a memorial service for 6 slain innocents or a Democrat Rally? The standing up and down reminded me of a State of the Union speech.
What about these little gems handed out before the speech?
My friends remember this – no amount of honey that can fall from the lips of this serpent can sweeten the damage he has caused and will continue to cause to our great nation. This man and his followers will use every means available to instill and enforce Obamunism until his sorry hind end is voted out in 2012. This man will stop at nothing to re-align to mass power and steal away the foundation of this country and will exploit every opportunity to do so. Even at a memorial of 6 unfortunate souls. Civility? Was it civil when the 111th Congress was passing un-Constitutional bill after another in the face of negative public polls and opinions? Was it civil when the 111th Congress and Obama were burying our nation in a mountain of debt and selling our grandchildren to the Chinese? Was it civil when Barry O broke contract law and placed his crony union lackeys as superior creditors to bond holders? Was the lame duck, liberal led 111th Congress civil as it tried to jam more over-reaching legislation in the waning hours of its reign of power? My recall was the fact they gave us the finger. You have the right to be uncivilized in what the liberal agenda has done to this country. Sixty years of politeness got us into this mess and some up front, no-nonsense, in your face straight talk with accountability is the only thing that will save the nation.
There is a time and place for civility. Show it in respect when speaking to your elders, the cleregy, and elected officials. Have lively debates and hear all sides of a matter. Be civil in your political actions against those that would steal your freedoms.
Oh, and one more – keep memorial services reserved for reflection and grief. Not political rallies.
