Outside the Asylum
President Barack Obama has finally delivered on that Nobel Peace Prize he won a few years back. That’s right, you right-wing curmudgeons: Thanks to Obama, peace is at hand. In a Monday article in National Journal, a senior Obama flunky announced: “The war on terror is over.”
The defrocked high priest of liberal hatred has been left to wander the streets of Manhattan, staring blankly into the middle distance and muttering to himself about how life is so unfair when you’re the smartest man in the history of the species.
In 2006 when the price of a gallon of regular gasoline hovered just above $3, Nancy Pelosi and three of her colleagues railed against George W. Bush and Big Oil at an Exxon station near Capitol Hill. Where are the Democratic lawmakers now that the price of gas has skyrocketed?
With the revelation that poor George Zimmerman will be the target of a zealous (not to mention ambitious) Florida prosecutor, the sad saga of the Sanford shootout has cemented its position as the dominant news item of the moment. Behind this sordid soap opera lies a much larger subtext of liberal hypocrisy and racism.
Most people might not give a second thought to the recent decision by the Los Angeles City Council to ban non-reusable grocery bags. But the LA grocery bag ban is an excellent example of liberalism’s ultimate goal: total, pervasive and permanent control over the people.
I have never been much for writing indignant notes to my — or any — Congressman. Having spent the bulk of my professional career in and around the political class, I am well aware that most of them on both sides of the aisle can at least pretend to have concern for people, but few of them care about individuals.
I’ve found myself musing on the politically pathological behavior displayed of late by President Barack Obama and his accomplices. Their reactions under electoral pressure of their own creation remind me of a drug dealer with two strikes on his record getting popped for selling crack to an 8-year-old.
Panic led President Barack Obama to wade blindly into the case of George Zimmerman. After all, virtually every Democrat worth his weight in fraudulently cast ballots shifted his gaze from his beloved savior to joining the Zimmerman lynch mob.
Under different circumstances, I might feel bad for Solicitor General of the United States Donald Verrilli. Charged with the duty of defending the bureaucratic behemoth known as Obamacare — in front of the highest court in the land, no less — Verrilli became a mosquito with a law degree, slamming headlong into the windshield of superior Constitutional scholars.
The self-serving attempts by some to insert race into the Trayvon Martin tragedy (and it IS a tragedy—for everyone involved) is particularly odious. A young black man is dead, killed by a Hispanic man who may or may not have been acting in self-defense. That’s ALWAYS terrible; for the shooter and the “shootee” alike. What everyone seems to forget when they turn these cases into public referenda is that both are PEOPLE; with families and friends.
