Article II, Section 3

The Global Musings of an Educated Man..........vol.125
It was a historic night. The crowd was assembled. The usual suspects were there with their blue and red ties, ready to applaud at a moments notice and the others were to sit on their hands and make tired faces for the t.v. cameras. Obama, the chosen one, who was going to rebuild the country from the ashes like a phoenix rising into the sun, pleaded his case to the public that more time needs to be given. We have to be patient.
I was wondering how many times he would say "let me be clear", but it didn't happen. Instead he rolled into a populist message, like Presidents of the past, promising things that seem unattainable.
Two parties, both flip sides of the same coin working together? Good luck. But still I have hope.
"Change has not come fast enough" he stated and to our impatient public I can agree, for who has time to wait around these days for anything. We need things done now, and fast. As if we somehow know the end may be near.
He was supposed to part the Missisippi or free us from bondage or come down from a mountain top declaring that Yehovah had shown him the way, but instead he's just another politician, who can give really good speeches. The common enemy in the land of Obamica are "big banks" too big to fail but definitely in need of our handouts. "I thought I'd get an applause on that"....his demeanor was the most candid of any State of the Union that I have witnessed in my young life, and Slick Willy was pretty damn good if you can recall, that's Bill Clinton to you folks in the cheap seats. I was glad that there wasn't any mention of any "Axis of Evil" lurking in the aisles or telling us to buy up ducktape to ward against a bio-attack.
"I do not allow 2nd place for the United States of America" got everyone riled up and fully aroused.....the drums were sounding, que the porn music as their tongues wagged......but then he went on and on and started to loose me, but forever the optimist, Obama got me believing in him once again. In the end it was another great speech from one of the best speakers we have had as President......but actions speak louder than words and I, like the rest of this country, am waiting for something to be done in the cesspool that is our nations capital. But I do believe that our tomorrows can be better than our yesterdays.
On a sidenote and I may ruffle some feathers, but here goes, if you're anti-gay, why wouldn't you want gay men and women to serve in the military. With any luck they'd be taking a bullet for the country they loved and the enemy would simply be doing something that you wanted to do yourself in the first place. Do ask don't tell? By all means go right ahead, Afghanistan and Iraq are thata way.
I'm just saying. It's no big deal.

Blame it on Obama?

The Global Musings of an Educated Man.............vol.124

A rude awakening was awakened by the hour of the morning and the silence of the White House was brought down with a scream, "My God! what has happened in the land of Kennedy?!!" For yes, how ironic is the fates and twists of the almighty to tease us with carrots and kick us with sticks in the presence of universal healthcare no more are we, downtrodden are the masses of Democrats distancing themselves like lepers to Roman soldiers, we have no cross to bear any longer just a bad economy, and the Vikings are they getting stronger?  For the old lion's seat to go to a Republican is like Saturday Night Live not being funny. Which is the truth, no longer worth the ordeal to watch on a Saturday night when found on the couch and nothing else on because you have no cable and your Netflix has yet to arrive, a book will be stretched forth or maybe a rinsing of the mouth. We've had earthquakes and aftershock s and the Haitians are running mad, and can you blame them. Just ask the victims of Katrina if we are going to help them. And maybe just maybe, now is not the time for a health care debate, for we have no more money, just a larger pile of made up dollars that never seem to go anywhere that is needed, i.e.; Main Street. But I bid you all a fond hello and see you scratching your heads, but I will warn you now, that I have been reading Finnegans Wake and there in lies the answer. Until next time, the aftershocks will be reverberating, so go safely to your warm beds.

At least it'll be warmer......

The Global Musings of an Educated Man...................vol.123

Happy New Year 2010…….good morning ladies and gentlemen I hope that all is well out there for you and yours, but can I ask you this, where are the flying cars?? I was sure as a kid that they would be here by now; then again, we can't even make it back to the moon. We'll never find Bin Laden. I will begin by stating that this is going to be filled with more random thoughts stretched forth from the ether and grabbed from the nether regions of my brain as it deals with this ever expanding vortex of a universe. You've been warned.

            The push for real climate change began in Copenhagen, Denmark in mid December where 192 countries were involved and nothing was finalized or agreed upon, except that Obama is a very busy man and can't be at everyplace all of the time, or can he? The "media elites" once thought he could catch bullets with his teeth and part the clouds to bring in more rays of hope to our recession dreary lives but that hasn't happened has it? But, then again, W left us with quite the mess didn't he? Or maybe it was Greenspan? Or maybe it was us? Oh, sorry, it's all Obama's fault.  Instead we have Democrats huddled behind closed doors now and shutting out C-Span as they "debate" far from the public's eyes and ears about what to do about the future of health care in America. More transparency, my…... proving my theory that both parties are just flip sides of the same coin, flipping us off!!   Did you see that Democratic Senator Chris Dodd from Connecticut has announced his retirement? Saving his face and his keester, because as a leading member of the finance committee supposedly put in charge to change things and regulate the financial industry so as we don't have a repeat of the bubble of the past, got out while the getting was good, because you can't take money from the Wall Street companies and then be expected as voted in by the voters in your district to change things anymore, without the chickens coming home to roost, cue Reverend Wright.

            As a meager low level part time team member within the produce department of a shall not be named department store franchise that spends more on it's marketing then on it's employees, think red and white with a bullseye, aimed at the consumer, sorry, guests, the lack of holiday spirit permeated the building and grocery aisles every day I was there. It was oppressive and stifling as the mist of anger and impatience was overwhelming at every turn down every check out lane. But I digress, it was Christmas, oh, sorry, the Holidays, They some time get you down, like "rainy days and Mondays", I don't want to offend any one out there. But here goes, this may really get some people going, and I'm just spit-balling here, I'm not saying that I believe it, but it's just the hamster in it's wheel in my brain, that maybe just maybe, the Bible was created to impose a One World Government, because think about it, if as in the book of Revelations states that we have to submit to a One World Government before the second coming of the man from Nazareth will arrive and save the day, and dealing with all of the rapture hoohah and putting up with the beast rising out of the holy sea (Anti-Christ), but what if, what if he never was here to begin with, the man from Nazareth, gasp…..I know it's just a thought, but what we would all be waiting for would never arrive, and we'd be stuck in a heavily securitized and monitored, full body scanners One World Government run by a fascist leader promising hope and change. I asked myself, why was there a push from Paganism (many Gods) hard to control the people many many years ago to a Monotheistic approach (easier to unite and control the people)??? Then again, Islam vs. Christianity, is it just to divide and conquer the masses?? Anyhow, just some random, blasphemous thoughts, better get my sunscreen ready, it's going to be a hot one in the after life, for all eternity, I kid I kid. Chew on that.

            Now get back in line, go to work, be thankful you have a job, shut up and take the mark. Happy New Year!!
