The Man Who Would Be King

Some men just want to watch the world burn. 
~ Alfred describes The Joker

With the pending royal edit on immigration reform, it's impossible for me to believe that our current president wants anything good, constructive, or beneficial for our country or our system of government. He is proving himself to be the most destructive president in American history.

The people spoke loudly in the November 4 elections, but he is not interested in voters' opinions. President Obama wants his way, and he will break any rule to get it--including the framework of our nation, the U.S. Constitution. Lawmaking belongs to Congress, not to "the king"--of which the Founders were, quite rightly, very afraid.

But "the man who would be king" will force irreparable damage on the USA in his speech tonight. No good will come of this, except the enhancement of his own sense of superiority. God help us in the next two years.

Beyond Belief

In the Unbelievable-but-True category, the National Cathedral is hosting an Islamic prayer service on Friday. How's that for a Christian suicide mission?

Hopefully there will be no beheadings included.

The "Stupid" Election

In the bewildered aftermath of the Democrat election results debacle, this is the perfect week for the videos of "Obamacare architect" Jonathan Gruber to surface. With elitist professorial passion, Gruber explains why the healthcare bill had to be deceptive to pass and how its successful passage depended upon "the stupidity of the American voter." You see, the lies were worth it because they were for our own good. All of America's poor unwashed peasants, who can't understand the complexities of high progressive thought--we need the brilliant elitists to do our thinking for us.

Liberal waterboy Brian Williams solemnly intoned on NBC Nightly News that only 36.1 percent of eligible voters cast their ballots on Election Day. Since the Democrats got their butts whipped, apparently Williams is implying that only the "stupid" voters participated. This echoes the president's dismissiveness of the election's Republican rout. The highly intelligent 60-odd percent of voters, which any smart person knows certainly would have supported left-wing causes, decided to sit this one out.

Hmm. Do you really think so? Isn't it possible that it was the truly committed voters who are dedicated to returning our nation to some semblance of law and order made it a point to vote against the Democrats? Is it not also possible that voters who have stopped believing that their vote matters, as well as disenchanted liberals, simply stayed home?

We have remarks about the "stupid" voters in at least two videos of Gruber. He also describes voters as being "confused." Gee, I wish I were as smart as Gruber...*sigh*

But wait a minute! All those "stupid" and "confused" voters turned the government on its head last week, not just in Congress and the Senate but also in the governorships of several reliably Democratic bastion states: Maryland, Massachusetts, and Illinois, to name three.

I wonder if Jonathan Gruber is confused about last week's election results. I also wonder if he's figured out that a bill that requires blatant lies to help it be passed into law is A) a bad bill, and B) unacceptable to American voters. If he hasn't realized those unavoidable facts, he's--well, stupid.

The People Speak

Well, so much for a permanent Democrat majority. Yesterday's mid-term election put an effective end to that speculative nonsense.

The USA is a 50/50 country. Voters of both conservative and liberal persuasions are mostly everyday, hard-working people who want a safe country, economic stability, and the liberty to go about their business without tripping over another government regulation every few steps. When the "ruling" party decides on their own that they have an unassailable mandate, they reach too far and end up getting slapped down by the electorate.

Good. That's the way the Founders intended the republic to operate. In fact, it would come as quite a shock to our self-appointed Caesar, President Obama, but the focal point of our governing process is meant to be Congress, not the White House. Congress is closest to the people, created to represent them directly. The Founders even divided Congress into two houses, so concerned were they about the potential for tyrannical tendencies to arise among its members.

Congressional seats, Senate seats, and state governorships all flipped into the Republican column last night before most astonished media commentators could quite figure out what to say. Some MSM-ers looked like they wanted to cry (Tom Brokaw, anyone?).

But here's a clue, if the cheerleading Obama media can handle it. And our oblivious president should take a hint, too, if he's capable of it. The people of the United States of America are done with the BS. We are not stupid. We don't care about a candidate's race, gender, religion, or sexual orientation. We care about a candidate's policies, values, and commitment to the country. We've heard enough endless talk without action. Yesterday was our turn to speak. Time will tell how well our government listens.

Making Me Sick

The nurse who treated Ebola patients in West Africa but refuses to cooperate with a quarantine is making me feel ill. A medical professional with no common sense is always unsettling. Witness the case of Craig Spencer, otherwise known as "Dr. E-BOWL-a," whose travels about town as he incubated Ebola have been tracked on his credit and Metrocards.

What is wrong with these people?

Even those great American heroes, the astronauts who went to the moon, had to submit to a long quarantine when they returned to Earth. Earlier in the last century, public health officials could march up to a door and slap on a "QUARANTINE" sign if someone in the house had polio, scarlet fever, or some other serious disease. Of course, that was before there was an ACLU to protect the right of a potential plague to spread.

Steyn on Fire

Canadian native Mark Steyn is on a promotional book tour this week, but events in his home country have prompted a different conversation. His various interviews on the Islamic terrorist attacks in Canada are embedded in links throughout his online article, "An Attack on the Heart of the Canadian State."

I absolutely love listening to Mark Steyn when he is fired up about Islamo-fascist murderers, because he makes more sense than all officials in the USA's entire federal government combined. It's too bad that as a native born Canadian, he can't run for president; he'd certainly have my vote.

I've read two of Steyn's previous books, America Alone and After America. He is an eloquent, humorous, caustic, and very direct writer. After listening to him define the nature our enemy so precisely and call out our government for avoiding the harsh reality of the war we are in, I'm planning to add The [Un]documented Mark Steyn to my must-read list.

The Blank-in-Chief

Throughout their four-year terms, each president earns unique personal riffs on the "commander in chief" title. However, I don't remember ever seeing quite so many variations on the term for one president as I do for President Obama. Never have I seen such contempt-laden, scathing alterations for one president, either.

I've kept track of the varied references to our "commander" in chief for about ten days, in a wide assortment of online articles and their comment sections. A list of 40 titles appears below. Just add "in chief" to each description and enjoy the creative imaginations of your fellow citizens:
