Outside the Asylum
If the fact that 91 percent of Americans want war in Syria almost as much as they want Obamacare, union thugs at their workplaces and the National Security Agency reading their emails doesn’t stop President Barack Obama from sending our service personnel to Syria, there’s only one other person who might be able to stop them at the goal line: Obama.
People do not go to McDonald’s in search of haute cuisine, and McDonald’s doesn’t offer it. The restaurants maintain their low prices by keeping their costs even lower. And they keep their costs low by selling their low-nutrition food and paying their low-skill employees low wages.
Fifty years ago, Martin Luther King Jr. stood at the Lincoln Memorial and delivered his “I Have A Dream Speech.” Imagine what King might have thought if he were still around to watch the spectacle that unfolded last weekend — a spectacle that disingenuously billed itself as a National celebration of the 50th anniversary of that famous march on Washington.
As a father, Delbert Benton deserved to bid farewell to his family. As a man, he deserved to meet his maker on his own terms. As a warrior who put his life on the line for his country, he certainly deserved better than to be killed by thugs. At the very least, he deserved better than to have his commander in chief ignore his senseless and brutal demise.
Attorney General Eric Holder has so thoroughly disgraced himself during his occupation of the big chair at the Department of Justice that those extremely rare moments during which he doesn’t sell weapons to Mexican narcoterrorists or perjure himself in front of Congress often go unnoticed. So let me say this: Holder got one right — sort of.
Late last week, President Barack Hussein Obama identified “health insurance” as a Constitutionally guaranteed right. Obama’s accomplices took to the blogosphere to celebrate the newly decreed “right.” And Obama transmitted his proclamation through the White House’s Twitter account.
It’s fitting that President Barack Obama is vacationing this week with his private-jet-setter cronies in the wealthy Democrats’ enclave of Martha’s Vineyard, Mass. Where better for President “Better Bargain for the Middle Class” to cool his heels than the sort of place where members of the middle class are welcome only if they’re waiting tables or carrying golf bags?
Every promise President Barack Obama and his accomplices have made regarding every major facet of Obamacare has turned out to be as honest as a Lois Lerner deposition. What’s more, thanks to the Democrats’ machinations, they bear none of the risk and none of the cost. If that’s not fraud, then Bernie Madoff was just a misunderstood philanthropist with a slight gambling problem.
The defining example of “shock and awe” debuted on the world stage during World War II. Sixty-eight years ago this week, the people of Japan met “Little Boy.” Lest the shock not be awesome enough, 68 years ago tomorrow, the people of Japan met “Fat Man.”
Judging by the defiant attitude Barack Obama and his assorted accomplices, lackeys and lapdog media sock puppets have collectively displayed, it would appear that “phony” is the word they’re sticking with to deflect attention from their unprecedented war on the Bill of Rights — not to mention on our collective sanity.
