THE REAL STATE OF THE UNION

We’ve entered a phase where we no longer fix problems… We pretend they’re not there. If facts are really inconvenient, we play act.

We avoid mentioning we are 18 trillion in debt. We just play like we have an excess. We even fantasize on national TV about who we might give it to.  Hey… let’s make college FREE!

We measure unemployment in a way massive numbers of unemployed simply dont count.

We redefine “deportations” to pretend we fixed the border.

We declare ourselves the winner of the war on terror and strut away… Leaving a bewildered and previously beaten foe in control of a battlefield he didnt earn. A battlefield paid for in the blood of U.S. patriots.

From the wisdom of a prior era:
How many legs does a dog have if you call a tail a leg?
Four. Calling a tail a leg doesn’t make it a leg. ~ A. Lincoln

Still true. The real state of the union? Denial.

  1. Obama’s regurgitation on Tuesday was not a State of the Union Address. I was nothing more than a campaign speech designed to set the Democratic agenda for the 2016 elections. Basically he was throwing down the gauntlet. Now we’ll have to wait and see if the GOP has the stones to do something about it.

    1. Yep… he was pitching “FREE CANDY! Oh wait, those nasty GOP people won’t let you have it.”

      At some point someone has to be the adult in the room and say, hey… we have twice the debt we had 7 yrs ago, we can’t give out free anything even if we tax “the rich” at 100% of their income.

      Obama originally ran on the platform he’d make “tough choices” to help fix that very debt. Look how that turned out. His green energy debacles have lined the pockets of cronies and donors, and we have little to show for it but programs that suck at the teat of government.

      I have little faith in the GOP actually growing a pair of balls and doing much to truly oppose his childish programs. Guess we’ll see.
