Living in Obama's Fairy Tale

Source

September 15, 2011

Let’s play pretend, shall we? Let us assume that we are back in olden times during the George W. Bush Administration. Let us work very hard to picture in our minds-eye a joint session of Congress, called by the President, and during something like say, oh, how about a “Jobs Speech” he proclaims that Abraham Lincoln was the “founder” of the Republican Party.

I myself knew Abraham Lincoln was a Republican. Yet this little nugget of history intrigued me. Upon verification, The Teleprompter a.k.a. Mr. Obama the real-life speaker of those words--got it wrong. Lincoln wasn’t the founder or even a founder of the Republican Party.

His speech launched the Republican Party into historical infamy, but Lincoln wasn't a founder.

Keep your Let's-Pretend hats on for me for just a moment longer. I want you to visualize if George W. Bush had spoken those words making such a blunder.

CBS, NBC, MSNBC, CNN et al would have had that their lead off story every hour on the hour.

So stepping out of Obama Fairy Land, let's travel to the here-and-now.

Let us go to a website called:

AtackWatch.com

Now, you might say, that doesn’t sound so horrible. Let me show you a capture of their homepage:

OUR PRESIDNT HAS A WEBSITE CALLED ATTACKWATCH??

Notice the link on the left hand side of the page that says, “Report an Attack.”

Back to Fairy Tale Land.

Just imagine if you will, that this was a website that instead of “Paid for by Obama for America” at the bottom of the page, it had, “Paid for by Bush for America.”

The Obama administration, those rascals, are (again) calling for U.S. Citizens to turn in other U.S. Citizens – not for breaking any laws, but for exercising their constitutionally protected rights of free speech.

Notice the wording “ATTACK” and “Report an ATTACK” and “Join ATTACK wire.”

Kind of gets me all misty eyed and brings me back to the Jimmy Hoffa eloquent speech (that the Obama administration has YET to denounce) where ole Jimmy said, “Let’s take these sons of b______es out!”

It gives me such a lump in my throat when I recall those sweet, loving and caring words…

Keep trying to imagine if this was a Tea Party website or Republican website.

Now I wasn’t able to verify if this organization was an ACORN/Soros/Moveon spin-off – it’s almost impossible to track these leftist liberal bastions down to anything other than a post office box. And frankly, although I was finally able to find a number out of the Chicago Headquarters (the go-to place for ethical political behavior), I was not going to call and offer up my phone number on a sliver platter...although something tells me they already have my number…or is that my head..?

But I digress…

So let us close our eyes, and go to a make-believe place, while we use our fertile imaginations and try to conjure up a George W. Bush website looking like this and asking citizens to turn other citizens into the federal government.

Where is the outrage by the left? Where is the frightened and panicked concern that U.S. Citizens are being spied upon?

Remember that? The Bush administration did not wire tap U.S. Citizens unless those U.S. Citizens happened to be contacting known terrorists or terrorists organizations overseas.


Yet the left went absolutely batty over this! “The evil Bush administration is in your bedroom watching you and listening to you! Every phone call and every email you send is being monitored by the Great Satan!” They proclaimed.

Yet here, the Obama administration is recruiting spies to spy on other citizens publicly!

Does anyone recall the screaming and gnashing of teeth and the outcry of the left when the Bush administration was trying to monitor those who conversed with terrorists? The left was so loud my ears are still ringing from their carping and screeching. Of course, they had the help of the lib stream media to sound the alarm...

Where are those scardy cats now when you need them for crying out loud?

“Dash it all,” [self I says as I take my riding crop and hit my leg in frustration] “You just can’t get any decent liberal help these days…”

What with the Feds suing Arizona, now rumors of harassing the governor of Wisconsin (this latest abuse of power no doubt fueled by union thugs) stepping in to stop an AT&T merger with T-Mobile to save us from those insidious monopolies—wait—I know the times are economically rough. Did we lose Verizon and Sprint somewhere and I don’t know about it?

What with EPA ruling and new laws that usurp the things Congress has already said “No” to.

Gestapoesque raids like the one on Gibson Guitars --- apparently for the crime of donating money to Republicans…

The Food Nazis now wanting to "regulate" and fine businesses for showing Lucky Charms commercials.

And my fav-- Obamacare, “You have to buy the insurance we tell you to, “ Says the Federal Government, “Or you’ll pay big fat fines.”

Folks – the list goes on and on and it’s starting to scare me nigh unto an early demise! I've just bitten my nails to the nub!

Is there any stone left unturned with regard to the federal government in our private lives and businesses? Is there anywhere the tentacles of this corrupt administration is not slithering into?

Worse, are there no lengths to which the Obama administration will not go to to maintain their stranglehold on power and ultimately the citizens of the United States?

Sometimes I wonder if this is all just a very bad dream, or we’re in the middle off a surreal, evil Fairy Tale.

Only in this one, if we don’t vote this guy into a one term Presidency in 2012, there won’t be a happy ending.

Be afraid, be very darned afraid…

Absolutely outstanding hub!! I am ready to send this to all the drones out there who insist that the anointed one has saved our economy ROFLMAO! The truth is that the deficit this guy has created is greater than any president in our history, and we have broken the record for consecutive months of unemployment over 9%. When Bush used the term "Nuc-you-ler" every network called him a bumbling idiot, yet Obama claiming that he had visited 57 states, got zero mention anywhere, but that "racist" network FOX. I am tired of the left telling us how to think and what to say, and more of the Republicans in Congress should stop being whimps and open their mouths when these injustices occur.

Good Hub Carol,

I'm going to keep imagining. I want to imagine that Obama took a "bridge too far" when he got involved with the company and people of Solyndra. I want to believe that this is a administration ender. They are already in the denial phase and it's a lot more serious on the surface than Watergate!!! (8D)

You know - I was thinking as I started writing this Hub, "This could backfire..."

This went a little viral - and not in a good way -- people are laughing at the Obama crew and mocking the website. And apparently Michele Malkin said James Carville said "Democrats, it's time to panic." I just pray, pray, pray that Obama keeps digging himself in deeper. So deep he'll never crawl out and 2012 kicks his sorry, sorry butt out of office.

Thanks for stopping by Nick!

cjv,

I almost reported an attack on me by Obumma on his website, but like you, I didn't want to put myself on their radar. Another great story is how the longshoremen in WA state vandalized and terrorized the company they work for and kept some security guards trapped in a building while they did it. The MSM has not uttered one word about this. I have no doubt that if a group of Tea Partiers did anything remotely similar, the MSM would lead with the story for days and days. I hope this administration doesn't cause me to have a stroke before I can vote against them next year!

Oh Sheri I KNOW! It truly is CRIMINAL how the lame stream media has gone all out - blatantly for Obama and the Democrats. If even ONE Tea Partier did what 500 longshore lawless thugs did - the media would be making posters and movies about the incident. If you haven't seen "Media Malpractice" yet? http://www.johnziegler.com/ Click the link on the top right or download it on Netflix. You HAVE to see this movie. Every one of these so-called journalists should be out of a job!

Thanks for adding your comments Sheri

I saw the attackwatch ad and thought it was some kind of a joke. I can't believe it was for real and that it was actually supported by this administration. Sadly, this one isn't just a fairy tale.

cjv123 5 years ago from Michigan Author

caltex - I too at first - for one moment thought it had to be a parody. But then I realized - this is typical Chicago style politics - thuggery at it's best.

Where is the media on this one? Where are they on Solyndra? When Enron went down due to excess - W wasn't even involced in giving a 1/2 billion of taxpayer's money to Enron - yet the media blamed Bush for that whole thing. I used to watch the news and think "Huh? how the heck is this Bush's personal fault?"

Here we have an "alternative energy" obsessed President who made it perfectly clear he was going to create millions of jobs with "investments" like Solyndra - and what did that get us? Bupkiss...

They think it's people putting out MISINFORMATION and that's the cause of Obama's downfall?? So they create AttackWatch??! Someone really needs to get a clue over in the White House.

The stark reality is that as this fairy tale continues to unfold, most Americans are being fatted like lemmings creeping closer to the edge; the edge looming over the valley of lost freedoms and original American identity. Our founding fathers have all rolled over in their graves... more than once.

Important coming events to watch.

Sept 22, 2011 in Florida, the Republican Presidential debate sponsored by Fox News and Google. Fox is accepting video questions for the candidates

This week the Super Committee met and held an OPEN door meeting. Some DEMOCRAT CONGRESSMAN want the Super Committee to go after $ 4 trillion in savings instead of the $ 1.5 that they were instructed to find. The recent elections of 3 republicans may have open their eyes to what the people want Congress to accomplish. Leader Boehner has put Congress on notice that the House will not approve taxing the American people.

Check this one out, most likely it will not be reported in the mainstream media

The head of G E is Mr. Immelt, who heads the Obama jobs committee. Another interesting news article in our local business section reported on 9/17/11:

GE SIGNS PACTS IN RUSSIA ON ENERGY AND HEALTH CARE

GE HAS SECURED 2 SEPARATE DEALS IN RUSSIA THAT COULD GENERATE BETWEEN $ 10 BILLION AND $15 BILLION IN SALES.

The energy deal allows GE to manufacture and sell NATURAL GAS TURBINES in the country. The Healthcare deal clears GE to make and sell high-tech medical DIAGNOSTIC equipment. The PRODUCTS WILL BE BUILT IN RUSSIA.

NOTE that GE has received $billions of the Stimulus funding and has paid $0 taxes last year.

GE recently closed a plant in upper new York , and closed another one in Ohio and moved the jobs to China.

During the height of the Iraq war, GE was selling equipment and parts to Iran that were showing up in Iraq being part of the enemies arsenal.

Why isn’t our government investigating this company and their chief executives? GE was a huge campaign donor to the Obama campaign.

Wake up America, our Congress is AWOL?

Hi, cjv123! I love your hub a lot. I voted up and interesting. I like your writing style, too. I am into fairy tales :) So I truly feel and think we are living in Obama's Nightmare on Elm Street. There are so many horrifying moments for America with him at the helm. Do you think he'll get impeached with the Solyndra deal? Truly a nightmare or a ghastly fairy tale.

NICE! Everyone I know agrees with everything you say. I hear it all the time, but how can we stand up? Who will be able to set things right? We are so deep in this twisted game that the government is just tearing holes in everything that was once (at least a little) intact. We just sit back and watch our lives get harder and harder as we keep struggling....d**n politics..

Kckcheri - I think if we can cut a lot of spending, earmarks - clean up the graft and cronyism, DE-regulate - do away with the EPA altogether etc. - we can START to heal our economy. We need to put in men and women who will have the stones to do it - that's all - and we should be able to complete that task in 2012.

ON Monday Sept.19, 2011, President Obama announced his deficit reduction plan to a select group in the rose garden and as typical no questions were taken. Is it possible that he believes he is in FAIRY LAND or in the land of OZ?

Somehow President Obama is mis- leading the public or is it that Obama doesn’t understand the numbers or the tax laws. Obama is in campaign mode, tell the people what they want to hear. Will the people make the same mistake this time around?

Excerpts from an article on the web

The Tax Policy Center estimates that 46 percent of households, mostly low- and medium-income households, will pay no federal income taxes this year. Most, however, will pay other taxes, including Social Security payroll taxes.

"People who are doing quite well and worry about low-income people not paying any taxes bemoan the fact that they get so many tax breaks that they are zeroed out," said Roberton Williams, a senior fellow at the Tax Policy Center. "People at the bottom of the distribution say, `But all of those rich guys are getting bigger tax breaks than we're getting,' which is also the case."

Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner was pressed at a White House briefing on the number of millionaires who pay taxes at a lower rate than middle-income families. He demurred, saying that people who make most of their money IN WAGES pay taxes at a higher rate, while those who get most of their income FROM INVESTMENTS pay at lower rates.

"So it really depends on what is your profession, where's the source of your income, what's the specific circumstances you face, and the averages WON'T really capture that," Geithner said.

Words of wisdom from a tax delinquent

Buffet’s company owes $1 billion in taxes, the President, Barack Obama maybe didn’t know.

JUST A REMINDER

THE WASTE IS IN THE GOVERNMENT, the money to pay needs to come out of the government not the taxpayers. Today it was reported that for the past 5 years, the Social Security Trust fund has paid $400 billion to dead federal employees. Forging one’s name is a crime, the taxpayers need to demand repayment and prosecution. see

Today is Sept.30, 2011, the last day of the 2011 Congressional budget year. The last day for the Stimulus Bill to release the funds in the Stimulus Package . There are $ billions that have not been used or approved. Will the President and the Democrats return the money to the treasury and pay down the debt?

Congress, the House and the Senate approved CR funding for the government to Nov.18, 2011.The Senate has yet to submit a 2012 budget as yet, the House Republicans passed and approved a 2012 budget in Feb. 2011.

Senator Durbin ( THE #2 TOP GUY ) admitted today that the President’s Job Bill will not receive enough of the majority Democrat controlled Senate’s votes to pass the bill. Note that the Republicans shouldn’t be held responsible for killing President Obama’s job bill.

The Jobs Bill proposed by the President was rejected in 2010 by the Super majority Democrat Congress. The 2012 budget submitted by the President in Feb., the same bill, was defeated 97-0. Now after 2 defeats, the President ‘s job bill can’t get the necessary votes in the Senate to pass. The propaganda machine has been derailed?

One could guess that ‘’ you can fool some of the people some of the time, but you can’t fool all the people all the time’.’ May Justice be Served! Maybe some heat from the voters?

Check this goodie out!

''the President ‘s job bill can’t get the necessary votes in the Senate to pass.''

NOT ONE DEMOCRAT CONGRESSMAN HAS SPONSERED THE JOBS BILL IN THE HOUSE AS OF OCT.1, 2011. Blaming the Republicans, has the President lost his bag of intelligence ?

If a bill has no sponsor, a bill cannot get to the floor for a discussion or debate.

On Sat. the President , on his Sat. TV talk to the people, President Obama said that he wants his Jobs Bill passed. He referred to Congress but never once referred to the Democrats who will not sponsor the bill and/or support the bill. Again as usual Obama chided the Republicans for not passing the bill.

How low will the president of the united states stoop to keep his job?

I WAS WRONG IN THE HOUSE. On Sept29, 2011, Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-NV introduced President Obama's American Jobs Act in the Senate as S. 1549. Rep. John Larsen, D-CT introduced the identical bill in the House as H.R. 12

9/11/11 09/12/11 11:35 AM ET ??

House Republicans will move "immediately" to request that the Congressional Budget Office score President Obama's new jobs legislation, House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) said.

The bill has not yet been sent to any Senate committees. At 412 pages, the bill is complicated but manageable. Given the politics, it will not move quickly. Congress just isn’t interested because it affects your life, not theirs.

http://patomalley.wordpress.com/2011/09/29/preside...

So how exactly does a bill become a law? While not all bills are the same

Here's todays, 10/04/11, latest on the Senate.

Senator Mc Connell , Republican minority leader requested and challenged Senator Reid to put the American Jobs Act on the floor for a vote. The President today said that the Republicans are holding up passage of his bill ( ALL propaganda).Senator Reid is again delaying the process so that another crisis will be coming up soon.
