Now- I have held my tongue all day. Even at work, where dozens of liberals goofs continued the taunts about GW Bush, I still held my tongue.
I know what a moment in history this is. America and Barack Obama broke the color barrier. A barrier created by our forefathers in a nation that claimed freedom for all Americans even as they held certain portions of the population with a different skin color and a different gender under their thumbs. Eventually, America will break the gender barrier also. I firmly believe that it will be conservatives that break that barrier.
Anyway, this was a monumental day.
Even as monumental as it was, some of the headlines I have been reading all day got me to wondering what in heaven's name must be in the koolaid the media and others must be drinking.
Check out these headlines:
Obama raises hand, lifts a nation
Change comes to WashingtonYeah- we already know this is not true. Already some of Obama's buddies are under indictment or about to be indicted. The Clinton retreads are all back in Washington. What change?
An unbroken sea of humanity witnesses Obama taking oath
The Miami Herald
Another oh good grief. Even Obama recognizes that there are a few things broken. To Obama's credit he sees this and is talking a good game about bringing people together. Honestly, I believe Obama is sincere. I think Obama's biggest problems will be Reid and Pelosi. I don't think it will take long before they start slapping their own divisive politics all over the Obama administration.
Masses share in Obama's reward
Reward? Seriously? AFter spending millions upon millions to win the presidency, and we find out that it will be the masses that spends trillions to bail out everyone under the sun- where is the "reward" for the masses?
The following two headlines together got me to giggling. After the stock market tanked, the biggest tank in American history on the day a new president was sworn in, these two headlines came out:
Markets down despite ObamaThese two articles are headed in separate directions.
Real Clear Markets
The Obama era dawns on Wall Street
Still the one headline that had me busting a gut laughing was written by Ashton Kutcher. Yes, the "Punked" goofball, Ashton.
I pledge to serve President Obama
Ashton Kutcher, Huffington Post
I guess we have become a monarchy now! That is going to over well with the American people "I pledge allegiance to Barack Obama..."! What a goofball!
Even as I caught site of this headline, I saw another article titled:
I pledge to ridicule celebrities
Finally, someone with some perspective. The next few years are going to be hard, for everyone. Not just conservatives, not just liberals, but all Americans. We may end up with double digit unemployment and double digit inflation. Still these celebrities will go on making millions off the backs of hardworking Americans.
Breitbart has the true perspective on the Hollywood elitist liberals:
This video illustrates that the current celebrity class are not citizens but serfs. They need a leader to put their minds in the right place to do the right thing. They are not heroic individualists seeking to extend America’s promise but conformists who chose to sit out and complain during the tough years in order to ensure their guy got in the next go-around.
The celebrity decadence during the “oppressive” Bush years was world class. The clubs raged. The boutique hotels rocked. The private jet industry at Van Nuys airport flourished. The party never stopped. And only a precious few (Thank you, dearly!!!) stepped up to support the American troops who have been valiantly fighting for Hollywood’s right to do lines off of each others’ buttocks at $10 million Hollywood Hills mansions.
They never spoke up against the movies that demonized our military.
They never made movies to counter the libel.
They took the easy route. And blamed Bush for everything.
So while Hollywood elitist liberals goes back to doing coke, the rest of us, including Barack Obama, have some serious issues to face.
My pledge is similar to and inspired by Andrew Breitbart:
I pledge to ridicule and taunt the Hollywood liberals elitists and the fawning mainstream media until they get a grip on reality. We are a capitalist nation that believes is freedom for all! We don't believe in socialism, marxism or spending our lives working for the government. We believe in family, friends and our right to carry a gun to protect ourselves. We don't believe in a handout or a bailout. Most importantly we do believe in God, country and freedom.
I believe and I could be wrong, that under this nation's current leadership, that our core values of God, country and freedom will take a backseat to a government controlled populace. Obama's intentions are good, but there is such a thing as helping people too much. It is a fine line.
