…about Benghazi, Fast & Furious and North Korea having a Long Range Ballistic Missile yet? How about the impending doom of fiscal insolvency due to Social Security, Medicaid and Medicare spending?
None of this rings a bell?
As long as you have forgotten then the current Administration doesn’t have to explain themselves to you.
Move on (.org)… nothing to see here.
Except banning guns… and getting rid of any modicum of fiscal responsibility like the debt limit, or spending cuts… and hate speech is on deck since we seem to be in the mood to ban stuff.
Seriously, stop paying attention to that which is reality based and surrounded by unpleasant facts. Stay focused on hypotheticals and only those issues whose proposed solutions would continue to erode your individual rights. Banning Guns, Banning Hate Speech, and increased levels of Domestic Surveillance… that should take care of the 1st, 2nd and 4th Amendments. We may want to park some soldiers in your house for a few days without your permission sometime in the near future just to fill in the gap. We’re working on that one… we’ll get back to you.
So remained focused on gun violence… but not in Chicago. And ignore the crime wave associated with mental illness and gangs… because it is actually the wheel… sorry, the gun’s fault.
It’s imperative we stay on the path of fiscal insolvency driven by a unanswerable, nebulous, government… with the best of intentions.
Keep your heads in the game here folks… spend, spend, spend… punish those who create jobs… and keep those wars going. Have you tried the “Rocky Mountain High”? You should… need a match?
This has been a public service announcement from George Soros and the DNC, those people who care more about you than you do… and are here to help.

Great post, Mike! Stumbled on it searching for your list (that I intend to crib) of Obama Admin. perfidies. This administration has brought misdirection to new levels. They’re masters of punching you in the stomach, then stepping on your toes to make you forget the pain in your gut.
Of course, that’s only because the media let them get away with it.

It’s nearly impossible for the Media to argue they’re not biased anymore. It wasn’t long ago they would howl at the accusation, now the sound of silence is deafening.

Yep. The silence is a tacit admission.
I don’t mind media bias. I think the term “objective journalism” is a nonsense term. I do mind dishonesty. The media are both biased and> dishonest.
I’ll take seriously the output of someone who admits his bias up-front. Then, I can understand both the message and the context in which it’s being delivered… the only true way to understand ANY message.
That’s why I have the long-term project on NPR; they still insist they’re unbiased. When a network lies to you to your face about the very premise of their existence, how could anyone believe anything else they say?

I agree completely.
Just out of curiosity, do your kids read you stuff? I often have the conversation regarding outreach versus the echo chamber. It the kids I really want to reach with the message of cynicism. I think they would embrace it because it allows one to think everybody is stupid… the trick is to make sure they count themselves among the sheep.

I encourage them to read it, but they typically don’t.
However, I’ve long run a low-level guerrilla campaign of subversion. I’ve been driving them to school, or to the bus stop, for years, and every trip is a chance for a 10-minute civics lecture. I encourage them to think for themselves, and to challenge my conclusions, and we have some great discussions.

That’s the kind of grassroots effort that will save this country! You’re kids will be better for it… they get depressed a little earlier than most, but better. Hopefully you’re not subjecting them to audio equivalent of waterboarding with NPR. Have mercy on their young souls…

Lol! Nope. I never force them to listen to NPR. That could be reasonably seen as child abuse, and it’s my cross to bear. However, I’m reconciled to it.
Not sure if you ever subject yourself to the torment, but if you do, and you listen for the comedy, then you can get through it.
As you probably know, I’ve flogged the horse of “NPR as Comedy” for a while. It’s the only thing that makes it tolerable … that and excoriating them shortly thereafter on the blog. 🙂
