Help for Dealing with Obama Followers in Your Life?

After five years of failure, hyper-partisanship and far-left policies from President Obama, you may be at your wits' end dealing with friends and family who still blindly worship him. To help you process the ongoing madness and deal with strained relationships, I reach back to the words of the wise Dr. Thomas Sowell.

Dr. Sowell understands "Believers in Obama."
"Telling a friend that the love of his life is a phony and dangerous is not likely to get him to change his mind. But it may cost you a friend.
It is much the same story with true believers in Barack Obama. They have made up their minds and not only don't want to be confused by the facts, they resent being told the facts."


Flashback: Government Control Nonsense Exposed

Cavuto On Fire...re-post from five years ago.

Neal Cavuto on Fox Business Network (also Fox News) nails Congressman Alan Grayson on the silliness of the so-called Pay for Performance bill. It sounds good to control executive pay for companies receiving bailouts, right? Well this bill allows for more than that.

How long before they start saying "any company that receives tax dollars through government contracts must have salaries set by the government?"

Now that the federal government is giving money to everyone, even nonprofits, how long before they control everyone's pay?

If you listen to the rhetoric about the gap between "haves" and "have nots" you can see this coming. It's about equality in results, not equal opportunity.

...till we are all equally poor.

Why the Caged Bird Sings

by Paul Laurence Dunbar

I know what the caged bird feels, alas!
When the sun is bright on the upland slopes;
When the wind stirs soft through the springing grass,
And the river flows like a stream of glass;
When the first bird sings and the first bud opes,
And the faint perfume from its chalice steals –
I know what the caged bird feels!

I know why the caged bird beats his wing
Till its blood is red on the cruel bars;
For he must fly back to his perch and cling
When he fain would be on the bough a-swing;
And a pain still throbs in the old, old scars
And they pulse again with a keener sting –
I know why he beats his wing!

I know why the caged bird sings, ah me,
When his wing is bruised and his bosom sore, –
When he beats his bars and he would be free;
It is not a carol of joy or glee,
But a prayer that he sends from his heart’s deep core,
But a plea, that upward to Heaven he flings –
I know why the caged bird sings!


Obama Trojan Horse - Told you so

I created this early in Obama's run fur the White House. I couldn't believe people couldn't see him for what he was, a leftist ideologue. I can't believe how some still can't see the truth.


Real Black People, Stand Up

Will the real black people please stand up? I as so tired of the bizarre and unfamiliar madness I see that I decided to repost this.

Will the Real Black People Please Stand Up

Kelly Smith Beaty says "Will the Real Black People of Atlanta Please Stand Up" which led me to comment on HuffPo (since slightly edited):
"Ms. Smith Beaty is on point. This piece is relevant not just to Atlanta but to the broader black culture, which today I barely recognize. Black people once risked death to learn how to read, now many accept illiteracy with a shrug. The people who once faced angry mobs and corrupt, brutal police just to get equal education now drop out of school at alarming rates. The people who once looked to great intellectuals like WEB Dubois and Carter G. Woodson, now celebrate and elevate people who demonstrate the lowest intelligence.

Too many people make excuses. Too many try to blame slavery and racism. That won't work. The pathology today is far worse than it was in the 1950's, and I dare someone to say that discrimination is worse today than it was then."


Black People Duped (and in a mess)

Tell everyone you know (especially committed black Democrats) to read Dr. Walter Williams column, "Black People Duped." Seldom is so much said using so few words. This is a genuine and crucial "message to the black man." Williams column also addresses irrational white guilt/superiority and dismantles leftists false sense of moral superiority(they do so dearly love their helpless darkies/votes).
I wish I could post the entire piece here. I'll pick a few choice bits.
