Queen Michelle and Countess Oprah on Fantasy Island
Townhall.com ^ | January 9, 2014 | John Ransom

*ar·is·toc·ra·cy noun \?a-r?-'stä-kr?-se, ?er-?-\

1:government by the best individuals or by a small privileged class

2 a:a government in which power is vested in a minority consisting of those believed to be best qualified

b :a state with such a government

3:a governing body or upper class usually made up of a hereditary nobility

4:the aggregate of those believed to be superior

(*From Merriam-Webster)

It’s good to be the queen.

Just ask Dennis Rodman, or perhaps his little friend Kim Jung Un.

Better yet, consult with Queen Bee Michelle Obama and Countess Oprah Winfrey who are relaxing on a Hawaiian vacation together before the hectic, terrible event that will SO tire Michelle.

Yes, Michelle turns 50 years old shortly. And you know how hard that is.

What with all the traveling Michelle does for the White House. Now in Brazil, then in Martha’s Vineyard, Africa, Hawaii.

What for you and I might be a fantasy vacation is just another “day at the office” for Michelle and Oprah. It is exhausting.

No really, it is.

It takes a lot of hard work to be Michelle Obama, even if the rewards are great. The Obama family has made some hard choices to be in politics. It’s draining and personally daunting.

How would you like the odd moment of your spouse yucking it up with an attractive “other” to be broadcast to the world?

Not many couples have the strength, or are willing to do the work, to deal with politics at the national level.

For most people, I would recommend against it as a lifestyle choice.

Equally, it takes a lot of hard work to be Obama Winfrey, even if at some point she’s “made enough money,” as her friend president Obama likes to point out.

Again, for most people I’d recommend against the life of a billionaire media mogul.

Obama’s right in my estimation: At some point you’ve made enough money.

But then I count that as an individual choice, not one dictated to me by executive order or the tax code or imperatives of Democrat vote buying.

In twenty years of helping people make and manage money, I’ve witnessed the deleterious effects that fame, fortune and plenty have on families, relationships and personalities.

But yet, I’m glad these two gals have had the opportunity to make something of themselves and to enjoy the benefits, even if I might say “no thank you” to the opportunity to be that rich and famous.

It means that other people have the same opportunity to do great things, or even good things, as might apply to people like me who wish for lesser gifts.

That’s why it puzzles me that the two most recognizable minority beneficiaries of the American system, the most open, merit-based economic and political system anywhere—until recently—want to change the system to make it less mobile, less based on merit and more based on clan and group affiliations.

They want an aristocracy of the clans.

The problem with these two liberal ladies is that they have been suckered into believing that it takes a village, when in fact, the village system will eventually ensure that Winfrey and the Obamas are disenfranchised at some point again.

And if not them, then someone else will be disenfranchised based on clan or village or skin color.

When you define everything about skin color or gender or group, you can’t but help to someday get your wish. And then everything becomes about skin color, gender or group.

When you define and dice people into groups and subgroups and subsubsubgroups to micro-target government programs, propaganda and largess based on clans, you create the kind of “ethnic” tensions that face citizens in lesser developed countries.The coalition of today eventually sows the seeds of tomorrow's divisions.

You need only to look at Iraq, Libya and Syria to see the logical extension of that clannish, parochial mentality.

I agree with Mr. Speaker Newt Gingrich: I’m for the 100 percent of Americans, even Michelle and Oprah, who just want the opportunity to rise.

We should all be lucky enough to eat the same birthday cake that Michelle Obama is trying to avoid.

If it was good enough for them then it’s good enough for all us.

And, oh yeah: Yum. Cake.

THIS TEACHER HAS GUTS


This teacher has more guts than our entire Congress, Supreme Court and the Obama administration. GOD bless a teacher.

A TEACHER FROM THE GREAT STATE OF MISSOURI WILL LOSE HER JOB FOR STANDING UP FOR ALL OF US.
Give this teacher and true American a standing ovation. This 4th grade teacher has said it all, and she was brave enough to attach her name to it.


The White House
1600 Pennsylvania Avenue
Washington , DC 20500

Mr. Obama:

I have had it with you and your administration, sir. Your conduct on your recent trip overseas has convinced me that you are not an adequate representative of the United States of America collectively or of me personally.

You are so obsessed with appeasing the Europeans and the Muslim world that you have abdicated the responsibilities of the President of the United States of America.

You are responsible to the citizens of the United States. You are not responsible to the peoples of any other country on earth.

I personally resent that you go around the world apologizing for the United States, telling Europeans that we are arrogant and do not care about their status in the world.

Sir, what do you think the First World War and the Second World War were all about, if not the consideration of the peoples of Europe?

Are you brain dead? What do you think the Marshall Plan was all about? Do you not understand or know the history of the 20th century?

Where do you get off telling a Muslim country that the United States does not consider itself a Christian country?

Have you not read the Declaration of Independence or the Constitution of the United States?

This country was founded on Judeo-Christian ethics and the principles governing this country, at least until you came along, come directly from this heritage. Do you not understand this?

Your bowing to the king of Saudi Arabia is an affront to all Americans. Our President does not bow down to anyone, let alone the king of Saudi Arabia. You didn't show Great Britain, our best and one of our oldest allies, the respect they deserve yet you bow down to the king of Saudi Arabia.

How dare you, sir! How dare you!

You can't find the time to visit the graves of our greatest generation because you don't want to offend the Germans, but make time to visit a mosque in Turkey. You offended our dead and every veteran when you give the Germans more respect than the people who saved the German people from themselves. What's the matter with you?

I am convinced that you and the members of your administration have the historical and intellectual depth of a mud puddle and should be ashamed of yourselves, all of you.

You are so self-righteously offended by the big bankers and the American automobile manufacturers, yet do nothing about the real thieves in this situation, Mr. Dodd, Mr. Frank, Franklin Raines, Jamie Gorelic, the Fannie Mae bonuses, and the Freddie Mac bonuses.

What do you intend to do about them? Anything? I seriously doubt it.

What about the U.S. House members passing out $9.1 million in bonuses to their staff members on top of the $2.5 million in automatic pay raises that lawmakers gave themselves?

I understand the average House aide got a 17% bonus. I took a 5% cut in my pay to save jobs with my employer. You haven't said anything about that. Who authorized that? I surely didn't!

Executives at Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac will be receiving $210 million in bonuses over an eighteen-month period, that's $45 million more than the AIG bonuses.

In fact, Fannie and Freddie executives have already been awarded $51 million not a bad take. Who authorized that and why haven't you expressed your outrage at this group who are largely responsible for the economic mess we have right now?

I resent that you take me and my fellow citizens as brain-dead and not caring about what you idiots do.

We are watching what you are doing and we are getting increasingly fed up with all of you.

I also want you to know that I personally find just about everything you do and say to be offensive to every one of my sensibilities.

I promise you that I will work tirelessly to see that you do not destroy my beautiful country.

Sincerely, Every real American

P.S. I rarely ask that emails be 'passed around'.................

PLEASE SEND THIS TO YOUR EMAIL LIST…..
It is past time for all Americans to wake up!


Ms Kathleen Lyday
Fourth Grade Teacher
Grandview Elementary School
11470 Hwy . C Hillsboro , MO 63050



(This woman may lose her job for this letter.
I believe we owe it to her for expressing the outrage that we feel, but fail to address.)

She nailed it. It still amazes me that there’s not a sense of embarrassment from the current regime coupled with a loud roar of angry citizens.

both these women disgust me.

You silly white women Oprah, she then turns around and makes racist statements...are you stupid or something? She then takes that money that you so willingly threw at her and opens a school for girls only in Africa? WTF about OUR kids of all colors and sex?

Michelle? What the heck has she ever done except ride on the coat tails of a bisexual halfrican into the whitehouse? Nothing, she deserves nothing, no praise, accolades or swooning worship.

This teacher has more guts and more brains than those two combined. She has or is attempting to contribute something to our society by teaching. What are you two sea cows doing in Hawaii? Whole lotta “you go girl” “I’s sez” “fo sho” “ummhuuuu”

America’s braindead worship of the unexceptional and the unpatriotic never ceases to amaze me.

We also have a Congress inhabited by spineless, gutless, eunuchs who service each other while the Dictator destroys our country.

What the heck has she ever done except ride on the coat tails ...

Yeah, but her daddy was a really, really big-stuff Chicago Communist back in the day. Pals with Frank Marshall Davis and all kinds of kewl people.

Shouldn't Oprah be at least a duchess, not just a countess? As in, "Duchess of York" (Fergie's old title when her hubby was what, fourth in line? to the throne).
