Well, “Chopped” was a rerun last night, as I am sure Obama’s speech was too. So I watched an episode of “Hotel Impossible” I had recorded. It’s a show where a Hospitality Expert goes into a failing hotel to find out why they are failing. It always comes down to bad management.
Just like Obama.
“What I believe unites the people of this nation, regardless of race or region or party (which is why if you disagree with a liberal you’re a racist! a hick or a tea party “obstructionist!” :)), young or old, rich or poor (rich evil, poor good), is the simple, profound belief in opportunity for all (as long as you do as I say without question!)— the notion that if you work hard and take responsibility (Like ObamaCare, Benghazi, CIA,IRS,NSA,etc…It must be an Internet Video’s Fault!), you can get ahead (if you’re one of my cronies),” Obama said last night.
Sounds flowery, but he doesn’t believe a word of it! And everything he’s done undermines or complete contradicts this goal. Everything. But I’m sure he believes it. After all, liberals are nothing if not supremely self-delusional about their superior vision and superior morality.
So back to the episode, in Juneau, Alaska, was instructive because you had a hippy owner who’d been running the hotel for 40 years, badly. But she thought it was “good enough” to keep the hotel going so what’s the problem?
Meanwhile, he competition was eating her for lunch on the business.
But she willing to change, unlike the rigid ideologue we have for a President who will say flowery and lofty things but has no intention of changing his ways.
They brought back in her son who was much more educated than she was to manage it day-to-day and he wanted to do it completely differently.
But the instructive part was the Bar Manager. He was a laid back dude who didn’t care if he was over-pouring the drinks (which is bad for business because its profit going down the drain) or leaving the cash register open and unattended, or free drinks because no one pays or steals. He was only interested in the several hundred locals who came to the bar at night. He “people”. When confronted about trying to get some of the thousands of tourists in the bar to make more money he flipped out. He said he rather quit than see the bar “sanitized” and the thought of people outside of his little circle coming to his own private little watering hole was akin to the end of the world to him.
Sound like a liberal we know?
Only does things for his own good and the good of “his people”. Doesn’t want to change when things are not working. Will go around the owners wishes because they are not his wishes.
The manager thought the bar was his own private domain and he could do anything he wanted for “his friends” and that change would destroy it.
The Democrats think government is their own private domain. And they have a plethora of cronies and if want to change it, you will destroy “the little people” they supposedly do it for (but don’t actually).
Unfortunately, for America, their is no one to fire Obama or push him to quit so that’s where the story ends.
We’re stuck with him.
God help us all.
President Barack Obama outlined plans Tuesday to make 2014 his year of action — using his executive authorities wherever possible while encouraging Congress to go even further.
Obama took on a more pragmatic tone than in previous State of the Union addresses, acknowledging that getting his agenda past House Republicans was unlikely and therefore he would use his power to do what he can on his own.
So I’m going to do what I’m going to do, screw you. I will just do it by decree and regulations. I am Emperor Obama, I will not be denied!
This bar is run by me, for me, and my friends, and for the betterment of “the town”, screw you!
I will not have it “sanitized” by outsiders. People not of “the Body” (Star Trek reference) or “The Not We” (Doctor Who reference).
“Let’s make this a year of action. That’s what most Americans want — for all of us in this chamber to focus on their lives, their hopes, their aspirations.”
They don’t want Obamacare. They don’t want the NSA spying on them. They want some held accountable for Benghazi. They want lower taxes and less government intrusion in their lives.
I don’t think that’s the action the Emperor meant, do you? Its what the people want, but not what his “people” want. And it’s his “people” that matter.
They own it, after all. They won (stick tongue out!). They have all the power. 🙂
Remember when they were horrified by Bush’s “unilateral” actions…:)
After all, this is his bar, and unlike in Alaska, the owners (the real citizen people) can only tell him at the election if they want to change managers.
Maybe we need an Anthony Melchiorri to come in and straighten out the owners of this country.
