Is hope and change what you thought it would be?
So, folks, let me ask you a question: How’s this hope and change thing so many people were crazy about working out for you? Is it all it was cracked up to be?
Do you like the direction things are going?
Not many would have imagined in their wildest dreams a year ago that unelected government officials, not even Cabinet members mind you who must be confirmed by the Senate, could arbitrarily cut the pay of executives in private business by 50 or 90 percent.
Not many could have imagined that another "czar" would be hinting at restricting talk radio or there could be plans afoot to subsidize newspapers. Wouldn’t that be just lovely, creating a situation where some newspaper’s survival would be dependent on the government liking what they publish?
Did you imagine anyone would be discussing having a panel of socalled experts deciding who could and could not get life-saving medical treatments?
The idea is chilling not only from a medical viewpoint but also from a viewpoint of liberty.
If your Mom needs a heart operation or a child with a terrible medical condition needs help, how free would you feel to speak out against a government with the power to make life-and-death decisions about your loved ones?
Does it sit well with you that a federal agency gives school children material to recruit them on the side of Barack Hussein Obama? Isn’t listening to many left-wing educators singing his praises enough?
What will America look like in the not-so-distant future?
After all, Hussein has advocated creation of a national police force, something we have done without for more than two centuries.
Do you feel more secure in the world now with the appeaser-in-chief making overtures to dictators and rogue nations that hate us and are sworn to do us harm? How about his appointing two devout Muslims to high-level positions in the Department of Homeland Security?
Oh, haven’t heard about that. Well, that’s not too surprising since the mainstream media is so politically correct and so enamored with Obama.
Obama and Janet Napolitano appointed Arif Alikhan, a devout Muslim, as Assistant Secretary for Policy Development.
Then there’s this announcement from The American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee (ADC) stating they are proud to announce that the DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano swore-in Kareem Shora, a devout Muslim, who was born in Damascus, Syria, ADC National Executive Director as a member of the Homeland Security Advisory Council (HSAC).
Barack Hussein Obama has not only stated he is out to "change the United States of America," but also the people with whom he has associated himself for years have expressed in words and deeds their hostility to the values, principles and the people of this nation.
Obama’s pal Bill Ayres said it with the bombs he planted. Jeremiah Wright said it with the words: "Not God bless America, but G** d*** America!"
And Obama’s community activist goons have said it with their contempt for the rights of people who might oppose the course our nation is on.
How about those czars appointed without confirmation? Well, they have been people who praised enemy dictators like Mao, who see the public schools as places to promote sexual practices most people find abhorrent to a captive audience of children, those who say animals have the right to sue hunters not to mention the abolition of the right to keep and bear arms.
Anyone who says these men and women should have been more thoroughly vetted before being appointed miss the point altogether.
Why should we assume Hussein Obama didn’t know what such people were like, especially since he has been associating with exactly these kinds of people for decades before he reached the White House?
Appointing people who reject American values, resent America in general and successful Americans above anyone else merely confirms his lifelong relationships and his penchant for elevating such people to positions of responsibility in government.
Does he think the American people are so stupid they would never discover what these people were really like?
If not for the Fox News Channel people might well not have been told the truth and these appointees might not have been exposed for what they really are.
Oh, and how do you feel about spending thousands and thousands of dollars for the Obama’s date night in New York? What about spending hundreds of thousands of dollars so Michelle Obama and the girls could have a private fish and chips dinner in London traveling on one of the taxpayerfunded jets, not to mention the Secret Service blocking London streets in the area of the restaurant?
Perhaps the silver lining in all this mess is Obama has succeeded in waking Americans up to what’s going on.
Whether or not enough people will wake up in time to save America’s destruction piece by piece is the question of the hour.
So, I repeat my question: How’s that hope and change thing working out for you? Is it all it was cracked up to be?
