Obama Land

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.


Let’s see, half of the US is for Obamacare and half is against it. Then there is half against the Iranian deal and half for it. Immigration is another 50/50 split. There is one assumption being glossed over, that it is the same 50 percent in disagreement in all three cases. Obama has stepped on enough toes to have worn out his welcome. The thing that bothers me is that he has done it with an “Air” of authority. It reminds me of a person I worked in the past that smoked cigarettes. Most people that smoke are careful to tap their ashes into some sort of ash tray. This person would have a long ash on his cigarette, give you eye contact and then with you watching, tap the ashes onto the floor with kind of a head nod, suggesting that he hit the spot he intended.

Obama has found a way to circumvent Democracy, the rule of many with the rule of the few. His Presidential edicts poison the art of compromise. We no longer have a country united, we have a country divided by argument. His inability to see the Arab Spring as a mess waiting to happen is probably his greatest failure. Egypt will recover, but Libya is gone. Syria could be fixed, Russia is sending in troops. Syria’s president may not be well liked, but he is not a religious fanatic and he has the infrastructure to keep the country running by killing those that want to upset the apple cart. We didn’t like Saddam Hussain, but he kept order in his country. The refugees fleeing want order and they do not want to be drafted into a war. It’s kind of like the people that fled Europe to colonize North America. They didn’t want to fight in other people’s wars.

Preserving order is the prime directive. You cannot give a country Democracy, it doesn’t work that way. Raising the minimum wage, doesn’t solve poverty, more education doesn’t produce better paying jobs for many graduates.

We are not going to give the rest of the world Democracy when people are willing to die to further a religion because of their hopeless condition in this life; the right to vote never put food on the table. Religion gives the poor a new option, a better afterlife (notice how there is no way to argue that).

Where to from here? There lies the uncertainty. But one thing is sure, just as you need ugliness in order to define beauty, you need an example of incompetence in order to measure success. Obama land is a measure of incompetence, we can use it as a guide of what not to do in the future.

In a lighter sense, this is probably the first US President to have a sticker from every country in the world on his luggage. Job well done Mr. Tourist! And done on our dime—go figure–a real goldbrick!
