Over the past few weeks, I’ve not been listening to the radio, but listening to podcasts on an iPod that my wife got me last Christmas. And I’ll tell you, it’s refreshing to listen to books on tape rather than the doom and gloom of the various radio personalities and getting depressed while traveling to and from work.
Don’t get me wrong. Rush, Sean, & Mark are all great sources of information (although often one-sided), but I get tired of listening to the ranting. On the other hand, I get royally POed at the media for not reporting all sides of the issues, or just not saying anything at all. Most of all, it’s the bias from all parties – which is not what the duties of the media entail. Freedom of the press is a great responsibility, and must not lend itself to partisanship, but it does.
I’m also POed at the politicians, our duly elected leaders that forget whom they are working for once they’re in office. They suddenly grow a conscience when election time rolls around, and shift blame like a small child that has been caught doing something bad like writing on the walls with crayon. Unfortunately for them, like the crayon marks, the record shows exactly what these morons have been up to.
Politicians have always been at the center of distain, promising one thing to get elected and doing another once removed from the campaign trail. Some are pretty good, some are ok, and then there are the ones that are only in it for themselves to garner money & power for themselves and their cronies. It really doesn’t matter what political party they belong to, the actions are usually pretty close to being the same.
The bunch that is in power in Washington have been the worst of the lot as far as I’m concerned. I still remember the promises of an ethical Congress, transparency of legislation under consideration, and an increased concern for the citizens of the United States. Instead, deals were made under the table to pass legislation that would increase the debt of the country for questionable benefits of all citizens. I see nothing that the current Congress or Administration has done except to push this country further into debt and increase the power of government. And when a real (?) crisis hit, no leadership whatsoever, only the same finger-pointing that has been the trademark of this Administration. And now I hear that the chief clown Obozo has endorsed building the mosque near the site of the World Trade Centers. No wonder their one-time supporters are now questioning the “change” that these bozos are actually delivering.
1. The Obama presidency is out of touch with the American people
2. Most Americans don’t have confidence in the president’s leadership
3. Obama fails to inspire
4. The United States is drowning in debt
5. Obama’s Big Government message is falling flat
6. Obama’s support for socialized health care is a huge political mistake
7. Obama’s handling of the Gulf oil spill has been weak-kneed and indecisive
8. US foreign policy is an embarrassing mess under the Obama administration
9. President Obama is muddled and confused on national security
10. Obama doesn’t believe in American greatness
It is time that these dreamers have a reality check. Unfortunately, I fear it’s the beginning of a nightmare from which waking up will be difficult to do because we’re damn near in a coma at this point in time.
