I was trying to think today of some facet of our lives that has not been wrecked or manipulated in some way be the Obama's and their communist / fascist / statist administration. If you can think of something, please tell me.
Categories that have been taken over and adversely affected by the federal government under the Obama administration:
Food / Farming
Banking / Monetary Policy
Land Use / Resources
Media / Communications
Business / Capitalism
Labor / Trade
Travel / TSA
In every one of those categories of American life, Obama and his minions have reached in and grabbed power to manipulate, force, co-opt, and tax. Probably more that I can't think of at this moment. And has any of this changed America for the better? Again, I can't think of anything. Not one thing. Prices continue to escalate. Unemployment is no better, if not worse in a most places. In the town I live in, unemployment is 11.6%. Tax revenues are down. County schools are scrambling to find money. Small businesses have closed, fled, or barely making it. People are on hold. Their choices more limited. Life is less hopeful. There is a pall in the air, an undercurrent of worry and darkness. I hear this and see this in the middle class around me, more than any other time in my life. People are going through the motions. Waiting and watching.
Which was the point after all. Obama was intending to destroy the middle class from the very beginning. That is what communists do.
The news media here talks of money being spent in Charlotte, NC, twenty miles away, for the coming Democrat convention at the end of the summer. Money for security. The city council has passed ordinances to tamp down any possible demonstrations that could disrupt the show. The bill just passed to stifle demonstrations was, I believe, intended for this purpose as well. The circus is coming. The circus known as Barack Hussein Obama. I dread it already. In fact, I have had a feeling of dread since 2008 when this circus began in earnest.
So what is better now, America? Anything? Are blacks any happier? Is anyone? The communist / fascist / statist left is not happier. All I read and hear is more griping and yelling about how they want more. Never enough for communists. In fact they seem even more angry than before the Obama election, if that is possible. Other than the favored corporate and banking industries, who is thriving? And are even they happier? It doesn't seem so. No one seems happy, hopeful, or eager for the future.
So what's left untouched by this darkness? Anything?
