Honey, I Shrunk The Presidency

Honey I Shrunk The PresidencyYou know a leftie like Obama is in hot water when sycophants like Tingles Matthews, Maureen Dowdy, and the editorial lackeys at the New York Times begin to carp.  Of course, that posse of progressive punditry is not really as exercised over Barry’s inane policies (or lack thereof) as they are over the excessive amount of time he’s spent bogeying the back nine when he could have been back in the Oval Office with his brat pack of latter-day Bolsheviks devising more ways to screw up the country and the world.

SlackerFor a silver-plated narcissist like Obama, the day-to-day grind of governing is never quite as important as the adoration of the glitterati.

SelfieWhat does interest Obama is celebrity: His own, and that of othersHe likes intimate gatherings of rich and famous people, people who enjoy notoriety—though not nearly as much as he—people of means, people of uniform opinion on the state of the world, the economy, and, most importantly, the state of Barack Obama(1,461 Days of Summer: Obama’s endless second-term vacation)

But even as Obama dithers and preens, the diligent apparatchiks who infest the federal government like swarming roaches toil endlessly toward their goal of establishing totalitarianism in the former Land of the Free:

The National Science Foundation is financing the creation of a web service that will monitor “suspicious memes” and what it considers “false and misleading ideas,” with a major focus on political activity online.

“…we will create a web service open to the public for monitoring trends, bursts, and suspicious memes. This service could mitigate the diffusion of false and misleading ideas, detect hate speech and subversive propaganda, and assist in the preservation of open debate.”

“False and misleading ideas”? “Subversive propaganda”? Who’s going to define those terms? What’s “misleading”? What’s “subversive”? Subversive to who? Or what? There’s a reason the First Amendment is so unambiguous. It’s to keep tyrants like these people from inflicting their views on the rest of us and preventing others from freely expressing themselves. (Government to track political speech on internet)

It’s hard to get rid of pests like this once they’ve established a colony in your kitchen. And once you do, you’ve got to seal up the cracks and crevices in your walls and stopper all your leaky pipes so they don’t return.  A prudent homeowner won’t mistake a cockroach for a cricket.

    Reblogged this on Catholic Glasses and commented:
    “Truthful and Objective News Reporting ” is like “roach spray” to people like Obama’s lackeys. But, when it serves their purpose, to push Obama out in the lime light, again, they’ll milk a news story for it’s “Demagogic Value for Obama.”

    Where is George Orwell when you need to ask a question like “False and misleading ideas”? “Subversive propaganda”? Who’s going to define those terms? What’s “misleading”? What’s “subversive”? Subversive to who? Or what?

    But don’t worry, when it destroys the fabric of America, it will be explained as unintended consequences and that we didn’t spend enough money on it.

    I could also argue that it would be insulting the noble cockroach by comparing Obama with them. We have a similar [naw, slightly worse] situation out here. Would you prefer our Zuma to your Bama? If so, you can have him right away. IkeJ

    Sorry Mack, omitted to say I loved the cartoons. About the only good thing you can say about your Bama and our Zuumer [sewer rat]; they are good cartoon material.

    The 1918 Flu Virus Pandemic infected over 500 million people across the world, including the USA, remote Pacific islands and the Arctic, and killed 50 to 100 million of them, that’s a 10 to 20 percent death rate.

    A large factor in the worldwide occurrence of this flu was increased travel. Modern transportation systems made it easier for soldiers, sailors, and civilian travelers to spread the disease.

    Now we have Jumbo Jets and the Ebola Virus….. With a 70 to 90 percent death rate!
