Schlock and Blah

For those of you who have not been paying attention to this latest episode of No Boots on the Ground (Kinda) let me point something out.

In an unprecedented breach, multiple Generals have come forward to criticize the Obama Administration’s approach to ISISISILALQEADA in the Middle East.

This happened three days ago… just before the bombing started.

It takes weeks to create a plan to bomb Bad Guys.  So these Men who came forward had knowledge of the Presidents Plan for Syria, and Iraq, yet came forward ANYWAY.

This can mean only one thing.

These Military Professionals do not believe the bombing of large sandy areas will do anything meaningful to our supposed enemies.  These Men knew what was afoot, and know it is political posturing lacking substance.  They know from experience that you cannot destroy an Idea from the air.

It will however make for fun video of bright rocket launches taken at night and large explosions.

And, this will provide ample opportunity for the White House to make frequent trips to the closest podium and hope the networks interrupt their current programming with their empty, undefined and intentionally difficult to understand statements.

All crafted as a cheap way to get the U.S. Masses to feel placated.  If things go south… will we hear a demand to put journalists on the ground to ‘cover the human toll’ war ravaged countries endure?  Flag draped coffins anyone?  With a Progressive Liberal in Office?  Of course not.

But then again, this is the Smartest Man to have ever been President.  He must know what he’s doing… in all things.

So maybe, unlike Bill Clinton’s Tomahawk Diplomacy, this bombing will be a brilliant solution none of us ‘unwashed’ are intelligent enough to understand.

I’ve been wrong before.

But let me ask… Why did we Leave?


The Private Sector is doing fine.

Well there you have it.

The President has spoken.

Quit crying, fool.

So, if you are still struggling to begin paying off the massive amount of debt you’ve acquired attempting to keep your business afloat through this recession… sorry, recovery, then you’re the exception.

Everybody else is doing fine.

If you’re still not taking a salary because you have to make payroll, then something is wrong with you.

Everybody else is doing fine.

If you are not hiring floods of new workers because you can’t afford it, then you’re evil.

Everybody else is doing fine.

If you can’t find a job, you’re all by yourself.

Everybody else is doing fine.

No… no… no…
It’s the Public Sector/Government that is in trouble.
It’s the teachers in the Government/Public schools who turn out the best and brightest at amazing rates that are in trouble.
It’s the Public Sector Unions who risk having to contribute to their pensions that are in trouble. (By the way… how does your pension look private sector worker? What? No pension?)
It’s the government employees who earn on average far more than their private sector counterparts (who are doing just fine) that are in trouble.

Anyone who says this President is out of touch must be insane. Clearly he has his finger on the pulse of America.

Meanwhile, anyone who stands in the way of such a “tuned-in” administrator spending yet more money we do not have is obstinate, obstructionist, obtuse.

This is a mindset. This is a view of the world from very high indeed. An elitist mentality does not describe this type of thinking adequately.

President Obama is an ideologue. Which is fine… so am I. We just come from mutually exclusive points of view… and I’m honest enough to admit it.

So, raise your glass to an optional reality.  We are being shown by the most powerful man in the world that as long as we say “everything is fine” then… everything is fine.
