Proudly in Decline

“For most of my lifetime … the U.S. was such an enormously dominant economic power … that we always met the rest of the world economically on our terms,” he lamented.

But Not anymore! Aren’t I great! Look Ma, what I did!

Now we’re all equal. No one is better than anyone else.

Aren’t I great!

“The fact of the matter is that for most of my lifetime and I’ll turn 50 next year – the US was such an enormously dominant economic power, we were such a large market, our industry, our technology, our manufacturing was so significant that we always met the rest of the world economically on our terms.

But not anymore!

And apparently according to the Messiah himself, it’s Ghandi’s fault:
“Throughout my life, including my work as a young man on behalf of the urban poor, I have always found inspiration in the life of Gandhiji and in his simple and profound lesson to be the change we seek in the world. . . . .I am mindful that I might not be standing before you today as president of the United States had it not been for Gandhi and the message he shared with America and the world.”
Really? Ghandi…boy Narcissism is your constant companion isn’t it.
But this did show itself during the campaign, most people and certainly the Mainstream media missed it.

“We can’t drive our SUVs and eat as much as we want and keep our homes on 72 degrees at all times … and then just expect that other countries are going to say OK.” Why does Mr. Obama think other countries should have a say in these matters at all?

But then again, neither does Soon-To-Be Ex Speaker Pelosi. She is probably the most delusional of them all.

“We didn’t lose the election because of me,” Ms. Pelosi told National Public Radio in an interview that aired Friday morning. “Our members do not accept that.” (The narcissistic “we”)

Instead, the California Democrat attributes the loss of at least 60 seats to high unemployment and “$100 million of outside, unidentified funding.”

Yeah, the funding from George Soros didn’t work either dear.

“The reason they had to take me down is because I’ve been effective in fighting special interests in Washington, D.C.,”

Queen Pelosi, your Mirror on the Wall is calling!

Pelosi: “I’m sorry my ego has overwhelmed me. I have been consumed by the Dark Side. Leave a Message.” 🙂

UK telegraph 8/7/10: What the great French historian Alexis de Tocqueville would make of today’s Obama administration were he alive today is anyone’s guess. But I would wager that the author of L’Ancien Régime and Democracy in America would be less than impressed with the extravagance and arrogance on display among the White House elites that rule America as though they had been handed some divine right to govern with impunity.

Sound familiar? Sound likely. Sound like a Democrat?

Mr. Obama was the first president to place the United States under the scrutiny of the United Nations Human Rights Council, which last week condemned America for, among other things, police brutality, discrimination against Muslims and illegally holding political prisoners (known to most of us as terrorist detainees). The council includes such dubious human rights torchbearers as China, Cuba, Libya and Saudi Arabia; allowing these dark places to preach to the United States is fully acceptable in Mr. Obama’s world.

Because it’s fair and equal. 🙂  What could be wrong with that 🙂

According to a recent Washington Post/ABC News poll, “nearly six in ten voters say they lack faith in the president to make the right decisions for the country”, and two thirds “say they are disillusioned with or angry about the way the federal government is working.” The poll showed that a staggering 58 per cent of Americans say they do not have confidence in the president’s decision-making.”

The Congressional Budget Office Long-Term Budget Outlook offers a frightening picture of the scale of America’s national debt. Under its alternative fiscal scenario, the CBO projects that US debt could rise to 87 percent of GDP by 2020, 109 percent by 2025, and 185 percent in 2035. While much of Europe, led by Britain and Germany, are aggressively cutting their deficits, the Obama administration is actively growing America’s debt, and has no plan in place to avert a looming Greek-style financial crisis.

So what do the Democrats want to do now?

More  Liberal “fairness” on the horizon so look out!

The Social Justice Train has pulled into D.C. yet again!

The Sh*t is going to hit the Lame Duck Fan!

“Whether you are a small business owner or a corporation with an entire human resources department, the business uses their professional judgment in the marketplace to make salary offers and pay decisions,” Layman told The Daily Caller. “There is no ‘correct wage’ for any given employee, so the Paycheck Fairness Act touches on the subjective nature of salary to make the employer easier to sue than they are under the existing two federal gender pay discrimination laws.”
It would try to ensure pay equity by restricting employers salary decisions, making it easier to file suit against employers believed to be engaged in sex-based pay discrimination and requiring businesses to disclose detailed salary information to the government.
Sound “fair” doesn;t it? 😦
And it will encourage businesses to hire more people if they have to have Big Brother and Eric “The Fairest Man in the Land” Holder looking over their shoulders! 🙂
“This would be the first law in the EEOC’s (Equal Employment Opportunity Commission) jurisdiction that would have unlimited punitive damages at their disposal,” he said. “And they are notorious for engaging in bad faith and using heavy handed tactics to get employers to cave in. If now there is no limit on the punitive damages, you can imagine the threat to business.”
No, they don’t see the harm they doing. As a matter of fact, quite the opposite, they believe they are doing good.
Pointing out the decline and then creating more of it is just “fair” because we have been “unfair” in the past.
Much like the the white male has been.
So this is just Social Justice rectified.
It’s a good thing to have Mama Government looking out for you! 😦
So decline is a good thing. We deserve it.
Enjoy.
