Hail, Hail, The Gang’s All Here

Hail, hail the gang’s all here
What the heck do we care
What the heck do we care

That’s what the old song says. The strange thing is that the lyrics reflect my attitude of the current US Congress as they return from vacation, and the power goes from a do-nothing Democrat controlled Senate to a Congress entirely controlled by the Republicans.

Even though for the last several years the Senate was run by the very definition of an empty suit, Sen Harry Reid of Nevada, things will probably not get much better for the next two years. The reason is because our President is just as negligent to do his duty as was Harry Reid.

Because of this, things are not looking good for our Republic. The best we can hope for is grid-lock, but that is not likely to happen. In spite of Congress President Obama will continue to thumb his nose at the Constitution by issuing executive orders to anything that tickles his fancy.

On the Congressional front, he will veto any Keystone XL pipeline bill that is put on his desk, Secondly, he will veto anything that does not meet his standard of socialistic government. He will also oppose and veto any attempt to make Obama Care into a workable system, which it is not as of the present.

What can the nation do to maintain security, economy, and industry with a belligerent executive in power? There are few remedies. One is impeachment, and nobody in their right mind would want to give Vice-President Joe Biden a promotion. Biden is a famous foot-in-mouth dullard who cannot seem to distinguish a public podium from a bar stool.

So, the gang is all back in Washington, D.C. and I don’t care.

All I can do is to keep expressing my opinion and to pray. There’s enough trouble on the horizon for everybody to join in.

Clint Eastwood – Genius

Clint Eastwood In Dialog With Barack Obama Who Is In The Empty Chair Wearing His Empty Suit

The Republican National Convention came to a crescendo last night with Mitt Romney accepting the party’s Presidential nomination.

The most entertaining speaker of the evening was Clint Eastwood, who in a comical and biting speech, made fun of our feckless President. The President was figuratively on stage, ably represented by an empty chair. This is apparently a device used before by stage artists, and it was very effective. One could almost see Obama sitting in that empty chair, wearing his empty suit.

Eastwood is an artistic genius.

He also had Obama engaged in dialog. Barack was using distasteful words about what Clint could do to himself. Eastwood replied that Obama’s suggestion was physically impossible.  This was stagecraft, pure and simple. It works.

Allusions of incompetent politicians and Obama’s resemblance to the same were piled on fast and thick. Eastwood reminded us that it is the people who own this country. Politicians are just employees. Sometimes employees do not live up to expectations, and you are faced with a decision.

Let’s underline that statement, because Eastwood did it verbally. Politicians are just employees!

Boiling the situation down to everyday language, Eastwood said that sometimes you have to let an employee go. With clear reference to Barack Obama, he said that it is time to fire the man.

As Clint finally said, make my day!
