We Have a Problem -- A Real Problem
Townhall ^ | 12/13/2012 | Neal Boortz

Posted on 12/13/2012 7:50:20 AM PST by AngelesCrestHighway

No .. I’m not talking about the fiscal cliff, nor am I talking about the almost $100 trillion in unfunded liabilities we face as a nation. Iran and a nuke? Yeah .. that’s serious all right, but I’m told that we are messin’ with Iran right now in ways that you couldn’t even imagine – ways that could derail their nuclear plans for some time to come. Is the real problem our sagging economy? An oncoming second recession? The growth of government dependency? Sure … all of those are problems and all are difficult to deal with … but they pale in insignificance to the problem I’m bringing up here.

I think that it is truly time for us – those of us capable of thinking clearly and, perhaps, just a bit outside the box – to consider the possibility that somehow we have found ourselves with a president who is not all there.


TOPICS: Government
KEYWORDS:
Yes...a real problem. It was as plain as the nose on your face when he was running for President. His past was a big problem even though the media would not talk about it...Ex-ACLU lawyer-problem, Chicago style politics-problem, Member of church whose preacher spewed hatred of America-problem, Friend of radicals who wanted to overthrow the government-problem, trashes Constitution-problem, bails out companies with taxpayer dollars who in turn fund his agenda-problem, Runs up highest debt in U.S. history-problem, Supports fraudulent election practices-problem...just to name a few so called "problems" with Obama.

No Founder guaranteed a rational electorate. We are faced with the worst president in the history of the republic who was known as such when he was re-elected. The solutions fall into two categories. Endure him, hope the damage is repairable and wait him out or insurrection, rebellion and revolution. I have no advice. By that I mean I am not advising caution or patience.

"...somehow we have found ourselves with a president who is not all there."

Somehow we have found ourselves with an electorate that is not all there.

Fixed it.

Yes yes, but why didn’t Neal Boortz write this article one-two-three-four years ago! What really is new in this piece of writing that hasn’t been known? Why such a delay in seeing the obvious?

I think you are right.

Some of the blame for this can probably be put at the feet of the NEA and the very bad schools that we have had for the past generation or two.

They are not teaching the children how and why this nation was founded, or of her greatness. They are giving the kids a very bad impression of this once great land.

I don’t have a solution for it—except if enough people could and would take their children out of the public schools, it might make a difference.

Obama is like the guy who takes a bunch of people hostage but refuses to discuss his terms until the police bring him pizza. The pizza is like his insistence on raising tax rates on the rich. It will not solve the real problem and isn't even related to his end game. But he won't talk about it until he gets his pizza.

Sadly for us, our hostage negotiator, Mr. Boehner, seems only to be negotiating the toppings on the pizza.

I remember the few radical teachers that I started to get in high school...Waaay back when you were a dummy if you didn’t graduate? This one wing nut women told us at the beginning of the semester that tape recorders were illegal in the class. I wondered why she said that? Jeez!!!...did I find out! She spewed her hatred of America every day. It was awful! I hated her guts just because she was so one sided.

It’s not really all that new. Read Dinesh DeSouza’s “Roots of Obama’s Rage.” He couches it in polite terms (anti-colonialism) but he describes it like a psychosis rooted in his dysfunctional childhood and lunatic, manipulative mentors through the years.

Yep. Sonny, while not in a union, was a union guy:

Sonny: [on a TV broadcast over the phone] I'm robbing a bank because they got money here. That's why I'm robbing it.

TV Anchorman: No, what I mean is why do you feel you have to steal for money? Couldn't you get a job?

Sonny: Uh, no. Doing what? You know if you want a job you've got to be a member of a union. See, and if you got no union card you don't get a job. TV Anchorman: What about non-union occupations?

Sonny: What's wrong with this guy? What do you mean non-union, like what? A bank teller? You know how much a bank teller makes a week? Not much. A hundred and fifteen to start, right? Now are you going to live on that? A got a wife and a couple of kids, how am I going to live on that? What do you make a week?

True, therefore they limited voting to only those with skin in the game.

We sure fixed that part for them!

Everyone of age, even illegal alien invaders, can vote for all the benefits they want in today's Amerika, no identification needed.

Obama is no crazier than the 95% of blacks who helped re-elect him

They are all race oriented bigots .

Obama’s attacks on the economy are all of his hatreds for Whitey coming to fruition.

He is inspired by hate, a Communist Daddy and Mentor Frank Marshall Davis, by his Communist Grandfather, by his miscegenistic mother that he hated, by his wife who never was proud to be American until she started living like a queen on our dime.

All of Obama’s faults go back to one theme racial hatred.

Oh you ca call me racist for saying so if you like, but to deny it is to close your mind to the truth.

Right. The evidence Obama should never have been considered for any public office, especially the presidency, was all there. Tom Coburn on the Senate Judiciary Committee with Hillary and Obama spent all his energy on vetting McCain. He apparently thought Hillary would be nominated. Hillary got threatened, and Coburn got snookered, and he simply could not believe his friend, Obama, could possibly be a traitor and dared not risk being called a racist by vetting him.

Some are beginning to awaken too late to our burning house.

Obama isn’t irrational. He behaves exactly as you would expect a con man, a thief, a Shill to act. The problem is we keep projecting our fears onto him, and he’s only too happy for us to be fearful. It helps him. He likes our help. He looks into the cameras and says, “I might be a socialist! I might send you all to re-education camps! Boo!”. And him and the Democrats steal some more money.

I must go back farther than you because even though I went to Catholic schools I had occasion to take some classes in the public school and back then they started each day with a bible reading! I am talking late 50's and early 60's.

I think Obama is mentally ill, but he also knows exactly what he is doing as he brings America to her knees. Everything he has done, especially Obamacare, is to gain control, control, control until there is no freedom left and capitalism, our military, economy and morality are crushed to punish us. He is a nihilist, among other things.

We need to remember that the issue (whatever it is) is not the real issue. The real issue is revolution and chaos to prepare us for invasion and rule by the UN so our resources can be spread around the world with one-world government, the New World Order where he can rule as dictator.

Assorted comments:

And ...

Somehow we have found ourselves with an electorate that is not all there.

And ... No Founder guaranteed a rational electorate.

Yes, we HAVE A PROBLEM, a real problem -- that problem being that conservatives on the whole have become FRENCHMEN. They believe that America is a nation of "chilren" and fools (except for themselves, of course!).

They have become FRENCHMEN, too chicken-hearted to address and defy vote fraud, self-pityingly and self-grafifyingly blind to tons of empirical evidence that indeed a variety of forms of vote ginning and outright fraud has reached the point where imaginary voters are "electing" folks that most Americans reject.

Doubt me? Go read the comments at MSM sites like CNN, Atlantic, LA Times, Washington Post, etc. etc. etc. How odd that MSM consumers, by a ratio of about five to one, 1) recognize and resent the extreme liberal bias of the MSM; 2) hold liberalism in contempt; and 3) think Obama stinks, in that order.

But those are places in the trenches and on the streets where the MSM doesn't go. The problem is that demoralized conservatives don't see that the MSM's talking heads represent a mere slice of America; instead, they roll over and wail because they buy wholeheartedly the illusion that the MSM is America.

America is dominated by moral, good, productive people. It is what we ARE. Until we recognize it, we won't start winning our country back.

GBA nailed it partly: Everyone of age, even illegal alien invaders, can vote for all the benefits they want in today's Amerika, no identification needed.

I know there are a lot of stupid folks in America who voted for Obama, but frankly, I know that there are MORE who rejected him because I know that Americans are smarter and better than that.

How do I know? Because Democrats have to cheat to win. Why do they have to cheat to win? Because if they didn't, they'd LOSE. Why would they lose? Because in terms of legitimate voters, THERE ARE MORE OF US THAN THERE ARE OF THEM.

A few years ago, definitely true. Now, just go look at the faces at a general public gathering, not a political rally or at church. You might change your mind. I'll agree that there are more of us still who vote regularly and considerately. But not in a Presidential election. And the Dems have always cheated in elections. Always.

. About your charge that the totality of our American conservatives have become as Frenchmen: Finny, I can see you are angry and rightfully so. But not all the people you're pointing at are conservatives. Please don't include the pretenders as being a part of "us". Thanks. R2z

Not only that. The people in power have access to weapons that negate sheer numerical superiority. The opponents in Syria will be (or are) finding that out when the scuds loaded with chemical weapons show up. Remember too that our LEOs as well as our military are being trained in "crowd control".

We live in scary times folks...

I live in the midst of about 14 million citizens, in California, no less. I'm alwaqys in a "general public gathering," and one on the Left Coast.

Even here, if you cock an ear or raise a voice and speak the unspeakably non-politically correct at a public gathering, even here it's plain that a LOT of people are on the same page as we are.

FRiend, when "our" side, ala Rush Limbaugh and so many of the likes I see posting here, believes wholeheartedly that the majority of Americans are children and mooches, then "our side" is the WRONG side.

Well, this was in Miami, Fla and at that time was still a southern town, at least during the summers before the snow birds came flocking in, there was no air-conditioning in the hotels yet and the yankees stayed away. In fact the hotels on Miami Beach were boarded up during the summers and early fall. My mother always said that air conditioning is what ruined Miami! It was at Coral Gables High and they did bible readings I can assure you.

That's truly encouraging. I've thought that, except for some dens and enclaves, conservatives were a relatively minor part of the Cali population since Reagan carried the State. Of course, here in the Palmetto State, your California, even if we've been there, is a big mystery to most of us. If a few of us hadn't been there already, we might think it doesn't really exist and is just a tapestry of tales and legends told to us by musicians, the movies, and other various media. ;>)

Yes, encouraging. I was just thinking about how, off the top of my head, I can think of three Southern Californians who, if you saw their faces at a public gathering, would very certainly register them as Obama voters. Believe me. One is a big Mexican guy with brillo hair, another looks like J. Christ, and another is a sweet little retired school teacher with wide eyes.

There's a lot of truth to the saying that you can't read a book by its cover. Faces in a crowd are no more defined by typecasting than yours and mine are. Rush Limbaugh would take one look at me, and probably ID me as a screaming liberal, and he'd be very, very mistaken.

Have more confidence in your compatriots!! :^) The next time somebody informs you that the majority of Americans are stupid children, tell him to move to France.
