Listening to president 0bama brings back thoughts of FDR and National Lampoon, because I can remember that National Lampoon had a cover where they were threatening to shoot a dog if you didn't buy a copy of the magazine and then I also remember that FDR said the only thing we had to fear was fear itself. It's kind of amazing that from one Democrat president telling us not to be afraid of anything we moved on to another Democrat president telling us we'd better be afraid of pretty much everything and give him what he wants or else he'll take away our parents and grandparents by not giving them money and medicine from the feds.
Good grief, people, are you even thinking out there? Here's the man who said he was going to fundamentally transform America and he's doing it right in front of our faces in ways no thinking person can possibly think is good, nice, American, or Constitutional and we're not doing anything other than saying that John Boehner better not cave and we hope he doesn't cry about it but that doesn't really amount to much of a hill of beans in the final analysis since the president seems to think he can do whatever he wants by bureaucratic fiat or by executive orders and he's got some tame senators who don't understand that giving the Executive Branch the powers that are clearly reserved to the Legislative Branch would be a bad idea and so it's time for someone other than just yours truly to stand up and say I'm mad as hell and I'm not going to take it any more, just like Howard what's-his-name in that movie from a pretty long time ago.
