Like Slim Pickens in “Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb” the Republicans might as well hold on, enjoy the ride and act excited about what their doing.
Quite a contrast between Iraq elections of a decade ago and those today in America.
Donald Trump is storming through the Republican primary to the surprise of just about everyone. It seems as though the worse the behavior, the bigger the following. We discussed this in an earlier post so we won’t replay that here.
But who’s to blame for Trump’s rise?
If you look at recent editorial cartoons, Frankenstein’s monster is the latest metaphor used to explain it. Just check out the examples below. The Republican establishment and Fox News appear to be popular. But we think there’s a simpler explanation.
The best explanation is to look no further than Obama. A huge segment of the population isn’t pleased with the direction this country has been taken. It’s not just the policies, it’s Obama’s childlike qualities, and we don’t mean an honest, doe-eyed innocence. We’re speaking of his callow actions as he attempts to build a legacy. A legacy that has more in common with a petulant toddler than the leader of the free world. Check out this ever expanding list:
Voter’s want something the opposite of what we currently have. Unfortunately with the pendulum having swung so far in one direction, the kinetic energy during it’s reverse course will swing us too far along an about-faced bearing. Trump is the anti-Obama, but not in a good way.
Here’s a sobering thought. Take one-sixth of the population and simply discard them. Horrifying, isn’t it? We’re doing that to those who have the potential to be part of the next generation. Here are some scary facts:
• For every 1000 live births in the United States, 210 abortions occur.
• One million souls each year perish due to abortion as a way to end an unwanted pregnancy.
• Half of all pregnancies in this country are unwanted.
Obama was certainly not talking about the ghastly rate of abortions when he said “Enough is Enough.” We only wish he was a fraction as concerned over the loss of life as shown by these statistics as he was over the abortion clinic shooting and subsequent tragic loss of life. Certainly we don’t condone violence as a way of protesting abortion. The monster who shot up the clinic must pay for his hideous crimes. We do, however, want to ensure that the cost, gravity and frequency of abortions are more thoroughly understood. Then maybe others will also think, “enough is enough.”
Obama isn’t exactly inspiring confidence. Even listening to his rambling you’d think it was a middle schooler trying to convince classmates that he’s the right man for class presidency, complete with plenty of “ums and uhs” to fully sell his commitment. Middle school students basically just wanted free stuff so maybe that’s his target audience, or democrats. Although, we’re sure there’s an army of unicorns just around the corner that Obama’s preparing to unleash on the unsuspecting bad-guys-with-good-media-skills ISIS.
