Several people have asked me why I don’t rant more often. There are three reasons:
1) I have a job and a life which both take time.
2) Many of the political analysts out there like Beck, Rush, Hannity, Laura Ingraham, Joyce Kaufman, Bill O’Reilly and others do a much better job of talking about the issues. They are more eloquent, less profane and reach millions of people. What is left for me to do?
3) Sometime the words just won’t come to me without being a complete potty mouth which would only take away from my credibility. (Not that I have all that much.)
There are times that I just can’t help myself and I have to let myself bloviate. This is one of those times. We have a President that doesn’t like this country and he has surrounded himself with more of the same. Take the oil spill: Obama has had many opportunities to get something done toward cleaning up the oil and getting more progress on stopping the leak. He turned down help from a dozen countries, presumably because the SEIU doesn’t have a Netherlands chapter. He has turned down help from scientists and businessmen, mostly because they weren’t unionized.
What did he do?
He started by ignoring the problem, no wait, he started by taking a huge donation from BP, the largest they have made in forty years, which helped his regime to waive the environmental impact statement from BP. This helped BP ignore the warning from Halliburton that the structure needed better safety precautions. Then he sent lawyers to see who could be sued. (I bet it really pissed the lefties off when they found out Halliburton was right!) Then, of course there were the obligatory parties at the White House and the never ending vacation for Michelle and the girls and the golf games, etc, etc. Oh yeah, he publicly humiliates BP by shaking them down for twenty billion bucks. This is money BP was already beginning to pay and would have paid anyway. Oh, and let’s not forget that he wants BP to pay for the lost wages of those that will be out of work for his fraud of a moratorium. This was overturned by a court but is being appealed to the more favorable fifth circuit. The original panel that assessed the situation said it would be unsafe to shut down the platforms as well as economically devastating. Ken, “We’ve got our boot on BP’s neck”, Salazar issued a report with the opposite opinion in their names. Let’s top it off with the Special, all star, expert, blue-ribbon commission he called together to solve the problem. The Dean of Harvard’s engineering and applied sciences school is the only one on the commission with an engineering background. This is in optics. I guess if we need a closer look at the leak he can help. Another is an expert on coastal areas and the long-term effects of oil spills. Not one of them is qualified to put oil in an automobile let alone come up with a way to stop the leak or clean up the mess. Anyway these *@^&%* *&%(_ %&* ^$# holes should be thrown out of office, disbarred, tried, convicted, drawn, quartered, boiled in oil then put in jail for one hundred years for what the *&^%^#&*ers are doing to the United States. I guess I better quit now. I feel some potty mouth coming on.
