The Check Is Not In The Mail

On Monday, Obama sauntered up to the microphone and spoke sweetly to the American people. He blithely suggested that the Social Security checks for August may not be going out. OK, he said other things, too. I really didn’t listen. I find it hard to listen to this person. He usually says very little anyway. He has NO moral compass. He is a NeoLiberal. And I don’t know if anyone else has noticed, but he is boring to boot. The phrase “banality of evil” comes to mind.

I will stop right here. I haven’t written a diary in a while. I used to spend a lot of time researching, thinking, and trying to put my best and most logical foot forward. Ain’t happening anymore. I am tired and can no longer make myself write either brilliant diaries or highly cogent comments. Please, forgive me.

One thing I know about Obama is that if he has mentioned something in passing he is making sure it will happen. He has set up the framework. If those social security checks don’t go out, how many won’t eat. How many businesses will go under? How many will die from lack of medication? How many more homes will be caused to go into default? And Obama will use this situation to cast himself in the roll of victim.

Obama is not just a disappointment, he is a danger. He is the most blatantly dishonest person I have ever witnessed in public life. We are in more trouble than we were in the Bush years because we are dealing with a heartless shape shifter who has taken us and the world economy to the very brink of disaster.
