Friday before the three day weekend was another day for the news dump. That is what administrations do when they want to release news but don’t want any particular scrutiny of that news. If it is released on a Friday before a three day weekend it usually just goes away until it is too late to do anything about it. Obama did just that last Friday by asking the Congress for consolidation powers of several agencies of government to reduce the size of government.
who wouldn’t want a smaller government? This looks for all the world
like a Republican move. Not so fast, Skippy. As usual the devil is in
this. Barak Obama has never actually had a real job. He has never met a
payroll. He has never served in the military. And yet here he is, the
President of the United States, Commander-in-Chief of the most powerful
military in history, presiding over the world’s largest economy. And by
his own words and deeds has proven time after time that he is an enemy
of free enterprise and capitalism. Now he wants to further consolidate
his power over commerce and business in this country and he wants to
have complete control of this new super agency? I don’t think so Tim.
Frankly he is just not qualified. Let’s face it, most of these agencies
need to be eliminated anyway, not consolidated.
addition to his being unqualified, I suppose my biggest problem with
this consolidation is that I just do not trust Obama. History is replete
with incidents of individuals coming into office and then consolidating
power to a point of dictatorship. We elected a President in the last
election, we didn’t elect a dictator. You don’t have to think too hard
to come up with other figures in history who were elected by the people
and then altered their governments through consolidation and usurping to
become supreme leader. There have been many and they now dwell in the
trash heap of failed dictatorships.
is what I would like from this president for his remaining time in
office. Ride in parades, attend state funerals around the world, host
one final Easter egg roll on the White House lawn, but don’t, under any
circumstance, further screw up this economy. Leave it alone. To the
Congress I have this bit of advice. Do not allow this unqualified
community organizer any more opportunities to become a dictator. He has
“czars” who were never vetted by Congress along with many recess appointments which go quite nicely with his numerous executive orders.
Enough already. Do your job and stop him in his tracks. If I wanted to
live under a dictatorship, I would live in places like North Korea or
Venezuela, not in America. Obama is not a manager and has zero
experience in business. He is absolutely the last person who should be
in a position of authority over anything to do with a for- profit
students of world history you and I have seen countries destroyed by
giving away too much power to individuals. Normally one would expect
Congress to hold down these overly ambitious potential monarchs. I fear
our Congress doesn’t have the stomach for this. It is up to the people
to scream loud and long. Failing that, where is the press? Oh, I forgot.
They are in the tank for the Democrats and will not even discuss this
latest usurpation until it is too late. It is pretty much going to be up
to the American people to end this latest power play.
We have a constitution. It has served us for over two hundred years. No need to change now.
