Tsarist Russia only had 18 count em, eighteen czars during its history. Obama, during his first six months, has over 30 of them. These are men and women appointed by the president, not overseen by congress or senate, accountable to no one BUT obummer, and they set policy for the US. This type of government is known as 'administrative style', and was used during the Calvin Coolidge administration. This is an unconstitional form of government, and is diametrically opposite to what the Constitution spells out what form the powers the three branches have. There is a major power grab going on in this country, congress and senate are feeding it, and there is a growing restlessness on the part of the people chafing under the strictures of the growing mass of government. A growing consciousness that "this is wrong, this is not right, this is not what should be". Obummer has a radical agenda for the US, he's teetering a line between marxism and fascism, with government ownership of private companies, with a facade of being privately run. He's taking pages from Benito Mussolini's book on this.
I recommend reading Common Sense by Beck, he's not speaking to Democrats or Republicans, he's speaking to those who possibly have a shred of common sense left in their head, those who are looking at the politicians and saying "who the heck are you and why are you saying that?" It's for sale on Amazon.com and also you can pick up a copy at Walmart. Mine was 8.27$ plus tax. It also contains the gem Thomas Paine penned 235 years ago. Both are necessary reading today.
I'm thinking this country is NOT the same country I grew up in just 40 odd years ago. I keep thinking of that stupid commercial with the elderly lady in the commercial "help, I've fallen and I can't get up". The US has fallen, and can't get up. Not without our help. Too many are just not giving thought to what is going on in Washington, not thinking about what is going on in their world, country, state, city, or even the street they live on. As long as they get 'theirs', they are OK with life.
There is more thoughts bubbling in my brain.. I'm on a rabbit trail.. sniffin out this and that.. will have a new post tomorrow on "the general welfare".
