We must live to fly another day
“The secret to my success was that somehow I always managed to live to fly another day.”
– General Chuck Yeager
In my lifetime, I have never seen such an assault on our Constitution or our way of life by the leftist in this country who want to change our society and force socialism, or worse, on every American.
Capitalism is under a vicious attack. Earning wealth is no longer an American value. Personal responsibility has gone out the window. The new mantra is, “Let the government take care of you.” Over 10 million Americans are now drawing Social Security Disability Insurance, and nearly half of our population is on food stamps.
Scandal has gripped Washington, and it is clear to any objective observer that President Obama and Hillary Clinton fabricated a story on Benghazi that will no longer fly. President Obama drew a “red line” in Syria and now he claims that he does not know who used the poison gas – Syrian army regulars or the rebels.
Since the rebels are a rag-tag bunch, it would seem that the answer to that question is crystal clear. It seems to me that the only party with access to the poisonous gas is the Syrian army, but that’s just me.
Under Obama, almost everything is getting worse. The Federal Reserve continues to pump $85 billion dollars a month into the stock market. Today, the stock market is over 15,000, but this is the equivalent to a “cocaine” high.
We’ve had this experience before. Do you remember Jimmy Carter and the 20 percent interest rates? The same economic conditions that caused the Carter presidency to fail are now in play.
At some point in the near future, interest rates must rise. I don’t know how high they will rise, but I know that the result will be brutal to our anemic economy. Moreover, the recession or depression that follows will be much worse than the Carter disaster.
Janet Napolitano, “Big Sis,” is purchasing even more rounds of ammunition. She sent out a questionnaire that asked ammo manufacturers: “Are you capable of producing large quantity orders of any training caliber specified with a short turnaround time of 30-60 days? What would your lead time be for an order of 2 million rounds of a single type listed above?” According to one Washington news analyst, “This is increasing concerns that the federal agency is continuing its arms buildup in preparation for domestic unrest.” As I’ve stated before, there can be only one reason to buy ammunition on this scale: to use it against the American people.
But enough of the bad news. If you look far enough over the horizon, you can see some clear sky. Washington insiders are already labeling President Obama as a “lame duck” president. That means that now much of what he wants done is not going to get done. His inexperience is beginning to show. No chief executive would dare lie to his staff or to the American people.
It may take some time, but the truth usually finds a way to come out. The Benghazi Scandal will be hung around his neck and Hillary’s. Hopefully, the American people will wake up and see Hillary as the incompetent prevaricator that she is. Remember her screaming to Congress, “What difference does it make now?” You will see that played over and over in political advertisements, and they will be very effective.
Obamacare is under attack – by Democrats. They can see the angry storm that this legislation is going to bring, and they are beginning to worry about their re-election chances. The chief supporter of this nightmare bill, Senator Max Baucus, has already declared that “it is going to be a train wreck.” He has, also, elected to retire from the Senate. He may be smarter than I thought
Harry Reid, the Senate Majority Leader, has chimed in and seconded Baucus’s analysis, but then he had the temerity to say, “The federal government is not spending enough money on the implementation of Obamacare and it’s the Republicans fault.” Any Republican who votes to give one penny to this socialist boondoggle must be removed from office immediately. Remember, only 42 percent of Americans are even aware that Obamacare is law. Shocking!
The National Rifle Association had a great convention. Membership is up dramatically, and it appears that we still have a fighting chance to preserve our Second Amendment rights.
As General Yeager said, “…I always managed to live to fly another day.”
