Obama Tells Voters to Pressure Congress via thestreet.com
President Barack Obama is calling on frustrated voters to tell Congress they're sick of gridlock and partisanship and want to see compromise to boost the faltering economy and create jobs.
The president used his weekly radio and Internet address Saturday to try to position himself on the side of the public and against a Congress with abysmal approval ratings in the wake of the bitter partisan bickering over the debt.
Is Obama using Van Jones’ “Top Dow/Bottom Up” tactic in manipulating voters to urge Congressional compromise? Sure seems that way to me.
Oh joy. In order to prepare for the progressive
And just think, we will never be asked to think again! “Experts” will do that for us.
Need a job? Take a test to see what you are capable of. With the government education system the way it is, I doubt there would be a shortage of street sweepers. Engineers, doctors, and advanced craftsmen? Well, that’s a different story. Philosophers? That would be heretical. Remember, “experts” do all the thinking and decision making.
Grocery shopping will be a breeze. Get in a line that is just like the DMV. Receive you expert recommended allotment of tofu, beans, and vegetables. Go home and bake a healthy “veggi loaf.” Pass the salt? Can’t do that either because Aunt Marge is serving time for buying some from the undercover food police.
Planning a family? Oh what am I saying? The question should be, “Want kids?” The “experts” will have streamlined the process for you, so as long as you fill out the request to have a child. The upside is, you will know what sex your new baby will be when you receive your permission granted notice.
Future medical advancements will be chock full of inventions and medicines! Will it would’ve been if those hadn’t been tailored for the small percentage of people that would have benefitted from them. The “experts” couldn’t justify the costs for such a small portion of the population. If only the “experts” could know about it before someone was born. That’s called “foresight” boys and girls. Eliminate a problem before it happens.
Looking for a new home? Man, I hope you don’t want a brick ranch style with a big backyard. Concrete is the wave of the future! Oh, mowing grass only happens when you have a yard or working for the government and since your BRAND NEW HOME is in the shape of a high rise apartment complex you will never need to wake the neighbors mowing your lawn.
The amenities of you BRAND NEW HOME, will include a TV that only shows “expert” approved programs, a radio that plays “expert” approved news and music, a refrigerator that barely gets cold due to “expert” approved energy control, “expert” approved toilet that needs to be flushed twice to get rid of the tofu-log, “expert” approved shower that gets no hotter and has no more force than a stream of piss because that's what “experts” recommend.
The wonders of retirement are just as exciting! Everything will be taken care of for you, just as long as you don’t cost too much. Bad hip? Back or knee? No problem! They’ll replace them, if you’re a fellow “expert.” Cataract? Do you need two eyes to do a crossword? See? All your worries have been taken care of. Have an aspirin and don’t call the “experts,” they have other stuff to think about.
Here’s a chance for you to use your imagination while you still can and name some other nifty things the “progressive” future will include. A simple example will suffice; elimination of road rage and traffic jams through a dysfunctional coast to coast public transportation system.
