The Latest !
As the Olympic games in Sochi wind down, I reflect upon the host nation, and wonder why it is that our government wants to emulate this country that was our arch enemy for so many years.
You look at me like I am crazy, and while you are correct, my comments above are lucid!
In the past eighteen months alone, the KGB, I mean the federal government, has mandated health insurance, bugged a reporter’s phone (See James Rosen), put forward a measure to interview journalists as to the content of their reporting, spied on the entire population hiding behind the skirts of the NSA, used the IRS to undermine their political opposition, lied incessantly about Benghazi and Fast & Furious and jailed a man for a video he made, so they could cover their own tracks! What’s not to like (said with best Boris Baddinoff accent!)?
The things I list above, every one, are things that should never happen here; NEVER! And yet, they happen every day. Everyday our political class gets more and more corrupt! Everyday our leaders ignore the desires of the population. Every year, they take a larger share of what we earn, and dole it out as they see fit!
At what point in our history did the founding fathers tell us that we should borrow money from China to build libraries with overweight senator’s names on them? Or that we should take money from one group of citizens and give to other groups of citizens, and if there isn’t enough, we should just borrow and print some more?
Where in the Constitution does it say that when 435 Congressmen vote on a Bill, that a single Senator can throw it in his desk drawer and ignore the wishes of those 435, and the millions they represent. That is exactly what happens today; except after tossing those bills in his desk, Harry Reid will proclaim that Congress does nothing!
What do the Bolsheviks got that Harry Reid don’t got? Just the sickle and the star as far as I am concerned!
This administration is governing by pen and phone, according to the Czar, I mean the president. The EPA, using regulation alone, not law, is killing the coal industry, stopping the Keystone pipeline, taking property from people using eminent domain for unjust reasons; all that is missing is a goose-stepping Red Army!
Laugh if you like, but we are having our freedoms stripped away methodically; little by little. Done slowly, we don’t even realize it, until those freedoms our ancestors fought for are gone! Much of the civilized world has already been run though this wringer; socialism is rampant is much of Eastern Europe, and here we are on the precipice!
I hope you like Wadka!
My Two Cents, How ‘Bout Yours?
P.S. This is my last post. I will leave it up for a few weeks. In this increasingly difficult economy, I have to invest more time every month just to pay for other people the feds think I should pay for, and therefore don’t have the time to continue this effort. Thanks for listening to my blather!
