State of The Obama Teleprompter

I know that it's a heck of a lot easier to criticize than to initiate. Never-the-less Mr. Obama just delivered one of his patented teleprompter readings called the State of The Union Speech. If graded from A to F - Mr. Obama's speech got an F. He covered everything from obese children to underarm deoderant grease, but failed [big time] to describe how his billion dollar give aways would be paid for. His overall theme was condesending, overbearing, and made up of more nonsense about Bush-Made-Me-Do-It.  I think most everybody turned him off when they heard that again. The guy has failed in just about everything he has done . . . but he's NEVER going to be responsible.

The speech was loaded with CAMPAIGN RHETORIC that everybody in the room knew was either an outright lie or a badly bent fact.  Over and over he told the audience that he alone was smarter than everyone else and therefore would not listen to plain old stupid citizens. You know, the people who ultimately have to pay the bills.

In what has become his characteristic form, he insulted or attacked just about everyone present. He called the Republicans "the party of NO". Hey, Bama-baby, the opposition party is SUPPOSED to resist stupid and non-sensical legislation and other changes.

He called the members of the SUPREME COURT badly mistaken in their ruling on campaign financing. According to him they should know that he is more intelligent than all of them and he thinks they are wrong.

Mr. Obama then turned to the Republicans saying they have REFUSED to pass health care legislation even though they knew very little about it,  they were allowed no input whatever, and the 2000 pages of the written bill is known to involve hundreds [if not more] partisan pork dollars, political pressure, and private deals. Is he so damn smart  he doesn't realize that the Democrats tightly control Congress and could have passed the legislation at any time. No Republican, not one, was in the way.  

Our President MAY be intelligent, but he is surely headed down the WRONG path. Apparently it take a 2 x 4 to get his attention.  America needs jobs to reduce unemployment, Americans are disgusted by BAILOUT DOLLARS paid as bonuses to undeserving executives, they also are concerned [if not afraid] that the federal government has further invaded private industry by taking a stake in General Motors, and etc. America is a free market democratic republic. It's citizens will refuse efforts to change our basic government and traditions.

Well, let's review-
As I told you he would, he's broken his promise on closing Gitmo.
He's now backpedaling as fast as he can on a civil trial for Khalid Sheik Murderer in New York City.

The AP and CBS news are both now pointing out that his attack on the Supreme Court was at best, disingenuous, because he apparently took a TON of money from foreign investors during his campaign.

Congress is now calling for an investigation as to why his Black Panther supporters were released without punishment after being found guilty by default.

He looks like a fool, talking about doing away with lobbyists while dealing with them on a daily basis.

He flat-out lied about transparency...
No posting of legislation on the internet..
No C-Span coverage of Health Care Reform.

And banning Earmarks? Ha!

Black is white. Up is down. Truth is... what?
We're living in "Bizarro World".
(And hang on... we have THREE MORE YEARS of this!)

Bumps, you can delete, rather than publish this, but can you define "iniate"? I'm coming up bupkus.
Bumps Stump said…
Greybeard . . . Note that iniate has been changed to initiate. Now that it's been re-done, I don't really think it fits. Probably should be replaced with the phrase "start something new". But what the heck, iniate is right up there with bizarro.
Greybeard said…
Yeah, when I saw "iniate" and inserted "initiate" it didn't work for me either, so I hoped you were gonna teach me a new word!
Are you looking for a synonym for praise?

We all know that there are serious problems with ou American political system. The federal government and national media have been telling us that we continue to lead the world in just about everything. Unfortunately, we do not. Measuring our status against other nations is difficult as it entails comparison of different attributes and characteristics. Comparisons are, at best, crude.  Surely, if we look, it's clear that America is no longer dominant among the world's communities. 

For decades following the 1929 economic depression, America has enriched foreign industries at the expense of our own. We have subsidized foreign military powers while allowing the depletion of our own. We've defended other nations borders while, at the same time, not defended our own. We've spent trillions of dollars to subsidize unworthy governments, and let our own infrastructure to fall into disrepair. 

The use of our economic power as a diplomatic tool may have been the correct thing to d…

Cruel and Thoughtless . . .

A disheartening situation has hit our family. A cousin, one that we don't know very well, has reached 93 years of age. Most of the Chapman family made it to the mid 80's, but Mary Lou Chapman has managed a few years more. And, she's not gone yet. Mary was unmarried her entire life. She grew up in a good home, was well educated, has always hd a good job, and has enjoyed pretty good health - until just a few years ago. While she is still very much alive, I sometimes speak in the past tense as if she had already died. Mary is either confused or in her own little world now. She began losing some of her sparkle a few years ago. At first it was mild memory loss, and then mild hearing loss, and then drifting in her speech as she lost track of what she wanted to say. Her Doctor said it was a mild dementia coming on with old age, and nothing to worry about yet. A few month's passed by before she began to have problems driving herself to the market and appointments and so forth,…

What Comes Next- And When

The speed of progress is astounding.  Watching television a few days ago I listened to Mark Cuban talk about subjects that I know little about. It was fascinating. He started with cars. Automatic cars. Driverless cars. Cars that think for themselves. All of which ended with a conversation about "artificial intelligence". Frankly, some of the discussion went right over my head. 
He began talking about the growth of computer knowledge and abilities that will result in the power to exponentially grow. Ultimately the amount of knowledge will exceed that of human beings. At that point "artificial intelligence" will control human beings. 

Mr. Cuban stopped there and asked "when this happens in the future, and it will, where will human beings fit in the composition of the universe".  
Several brilliant minds have been working on the answer but no consensus exists - except one. The transition from the dominance of human beings on earth will end will be be replaced b…
