The not so distant future...

//SCENE: Not so distant future://

Future Grandson: "Grandpa...tell me about America..."

Me: "What's that? speak up future grandson, into my good ear..."

Future Grandson:"America, Grandpa, what was it like?..."

Me: "Oh, yes, I remember America...*sigh*...see, America, before you were born, was once a great Republic...I know that seems hard to believe...but those were the days...maybe tomorrow night I'll tell you all about piggy-banks...they were neat too...not much use for them now"

Future Grandson: "What is a bank?"

Me: "Oh....wow...ummm...yeah...they had money at one time...you know what a piggy is right?...well...same thing only...aww...nevermind...sleep tight"

Gone too Czar?

Sen. Russ Feingold, D-Wis., held a hearing Tuesday to look into President Barack Obama's appointment of "czars."; There has been a lot of right-wing press pointing to these Czars. The lack of Federal oversight/accountability, the amount of power they have been given, etc… But very little MSM focus.

Many of these so called, experts in their fields have absolute agendas. Probably none greater than what I thought might be the more controversial appointee, Kevin Jennings. Jennings, the founder of the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network, one of the most powerful gay-activist organizations in the country.

So MSM, where are you on this one? This individual who has spent the better part of 20 years promoting the Homosexual agenda. Now he is in a position to directly enact the agenda on our public schools; without accountability. This to me is quite disturbing. Why it isn’t so to the MSM baffles me.

On to my point: As disturbed as I am I cannot say that I am surprised. BHO does not have enough experience in any of these national programs to make decisions on his own. He cannot expand the cabinet…which is already filled with political payback positions, so he creates Czars. Sadly, these are also filled with political paybacks. Change indeed…but the ability to actually get things done is being clouded by paybacks and agendas.

You get what you pay for with this President. He is more concerned with getting re-elected than he is with actual, meaningful, change. Saying the right things and maintaining his voter base has stifled his electioneering platform. We will never get the economy right under this president…he doesn’t understand it. We will never get the situations in Iraq or Afghanistan under control…he doesn’t understand them either. We will never get the Hope/Change/(insert buzz word here) ...because he doesn't know how.

Remember folks; this was a Community Organizer, turned Jr. State Senator, turned Jr. US Senator; in a very short political career. He owes more than he knows…and it shows (I’m a poet…and I didn’t even know it). He has to appoint Czars, because he doesn’t have the expertise in any field, he has never run anything on his own before…so, sit back…relax…and when it is all said and done…BHO will continue to shift responsibility of these major portions of government…leaving BHO accountability free…and ready for another run in 2012.

One day, we might actually elect a President with actual experience running something, other than their mouths. Perhaps a successful business man? perhaps? A Governor, at least?...one can only hope.
