And when we combine this with the fact that Obama is extremely popular according to opinion polls, with 73 percent saying that he "cares about people like me," meaning that three quarters of Americans feel that this manifest anti-American president represents people like them, I frankly find it hard to get a handle on the situation.I too am overwhelmed by the events unfolding in our country. And I agree with the further comments at that Auster post and the Tea Party guests on last week's Glenn Beck show that our country has gone so far off the tracks that a McCain presidency would've only been incrementally less bad.
I'm frankly battered by the idea that there seem to be so many regular Americans out there who think like I do and want the kind of country I want...and none of them are in Washington.
And all that keeps running through my head is "When in the course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another"...
I'm with John Wall: I'm ready for a divorce.
All I know is that if you invest & you the rules of the game change when the going gets tough, that is a sorry state of affairs for which someone ought to be ashamed. But, 'shame' is not something I feel was a part of the new President's upbringing, so good luck with that. I think he could have just called his one book "Audacity" and it would have been a more accurate descriptor of him.

It's frustrating, b/c I feel like I should be speaking up more often, but I don't have the time or the mental capacity to deal with everything right now.
I started thinking it might be easier to blog about what Obama does that I *do* agree with, LOL...
I'm not up for a "divorce" yet, but I'm getting there. Irreconcilable differences and lies and theft and all...

I'm especially tired and ready for a divorce because everytime I bring up a logical complaint - ie, quit freakin' spending our money like it's a shopping spree - all the liberals come out of the wood work painting my view as an extremist (WTF? because I want the govt. to exercise some spending control for which they have NEVER once done). And then they have the audactiy (that they probably learned from their cult leader) to tell me I don't have a right to complain because I'm not giving the guy "fair shake."
This coming from the group that in 2006 nearly 60% of them out right said they wanted Bush to fail. All the hypocrisy is giving me a maaaaaaaaahjah, mahjah headache.

You are a better woman than I for trying to argue back against that nonsense.

Is that what you want for The Children™?
Don't let it happen. Don't let these John Galt wannabes destroy Omerica and then divorce themselves from the W-reckage. They must stay. They must serve.
