Bob Pappas, USMC, Ret Underlining Fears by Colonel Bob Pappas, USMC, Retired Its a sad day for freedom in America with Obamas whirling dervish spinning its propaganda, misinformation and disinformation through CBS, NBC, ABC, CNN, and MSNBC about the April 15th Tea Parties. Obamas senior political advisor David Axelrod, in a CNN Face the Nation interview stated: "I think any time you have severe economic conditions there is always an element of disaffection that can mutate into something that's unhealthy." In addition to being an insult to what probably represents the attitudes of a majority of Americans, Axelrods was a tacit threat. For the Obama Administration to refer to millions of patriotic citizens who engaged in legitimate protest activity as being unhealthy is on its face counter-patriotic. But, if they liked the Tea Parties they are going to love July 4th. Leftists attempt to divert attention from legitimate outrage against the Obama regimes obscene spending (and impending monstrous taxation) by attacking them is an indication of their underlying fear and vulnerability to the light of day. During the years that the political left was busy undermining the countrys security activities with its 5th column behavior and protests, they screamed that protests were patriotic. However, no one should be surprised when millions of ordinary Americans protest obscene spending writ small by the Obama regime, that protest activity is now characterized as subversive!? Obamas mouthpieces, CNNs and MSNBCs talking heads desiccated brains best effort at a pathetic excuse for news, described the protests as tea-bagging (a common behavior among sexual perverts). It is no wonder that those two are about to go out of business given that their intellectual, political, moral and economic stock is in the advanced stages of metastasis. A childs solution to his economic aspirations might well be to use a copier to print money for ice cream and candy or to expand his/her lemon aide business. Obamas economic reasoning follows that same logic. If the Federal Government, including the Congress (Obama and McCain voted for the trillion dollar bailout) and Bush had acted responsibly last summer when sub-prime lending (set up by Democrats, supported by Democrats and defended by Democrats to advance the CRA), debacle brought down Leman Brothers, Bear Stearns, Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, AIG, the banking industry, and the stock market, the entire matter would be over now and the country would be on its way to a healthy recovery without the world-wide effects. Obamas spread the wealth around by doubling and tripling the problem will likely have incalculable consequences most of which are not going to be pretty. An objective observer can see that the outrageous deficits of the Bush Administration are dwarfed by Obamas projected deficits. Either his people are not nearly as smart as they claim to be, (i.e. the smartest man in the room) their behavior was calculated to cause as much economic pain as possible, they are just plain stupid or all of the above. Every day there is a new message from Obama about how important it is for the Congress to act quickly to approve this or that. Right, the Congress acted quickly and has blown away two trillion dollars in the last ninety days, three trillion since last summer, with more to come. On that note, Obamas recent attempt to portray himself as a fiscal conservative by demanding cuts amounting to a hundred million dollars from his four trillion dollar plus, budget request is laughable. One has to grant him audacity for believing that taxpaying Americans are so stupid that they do not notice or make the connection that a hundred million dollars is a drop in the bucket in to his trillion dollar plus budget request. Keep in mind that the four trillion is in addition to a trillion last summer, and roughly two trillion since January 09. In an earlier essay I stated that the way Obama would keep his promise to cut the budget in half by the end of his administration in four years would be exactly what he is doing. First, he presents budgets that are huge in relation to the previous Administrations, then in four years he cuts it in half and, voila! he is left with a net increase of a hundred percent from the previous administrations budget and the onerous taxes that go with it, but he cut his budget in half. Great sleight of hand, all the while people who voted for this nonsense are drinking his cool aid like thirsty camels. Enemies may actually back off now because they are smart enough to observe that Obama is doing their work for them with the support of the leftist media and too many Americans so drunk with Obama-worship that they do not notice that he is systematically dismantling the greatest economy in the history of the world to make the US more like his fathers dreams for Kenya. In the event readers do not recall, that was to levy 100% taxes, with the government determining distribution. Barry, ole buddy, the US did not become the preeminent economic power by spreading the wealth around socialist style. For those who havent paid attention up to this point: Obama sees the world through the prism of his radical associations, such as racist Pastor, Jeremiah Wright, terrorist Bill Ayers, socialist demigods from his classroom days, to the thugs that make up Chicago politics. This was the environment and the actors who cultivated and nurtured his hate-white-America attitude. That distorted vision is now being played out by his regime fueled by his personal demons and past associations. Obamas demons are reflected in his approach to foreign policy, economic issues, international relations, domestic policies, social and moral issues. Obama is an unmitigated racist with a socialist agenda (read his book) who promised during his campaign that he would totally change the economic system, and at the moment he is fully engaged in doing so. Examples are plentiful and evident: Government takeover of the banking system; takeover of GM; takeover of the health industry; takeover of AIG the insurance giant, and overreaching into States sovereignty as stipulated by the 9th and 10th Amendments to the US Constitution; which ironically Obama is sworn to uphold. For my friends on the left, take a look at every major city in the US, most if not all are run by Democrats, and you will observe a microcosm of the socialist end result. They are individual and collective disasters with crime rates, social and economic issues out of control. Consider the Golden State where socialist policies and spending have decimated its economy. Take a look at any socialist country and if you have the least amount of integrity remaining, you will be forced to agree that socialism has not served the people well with the exception of their elites. Rational people, whether Democrat, Republican or independent, should be on guard against the leftist lunatics who have taken over the asylum. Sign on to the freedom movement and stop Obamas socialist train before you are swept aboard for the ride to a Gulag in Venezuela, Cuba or some other spread the wealth around garden spot.
