Two Wolves inside the Soul of America

A Cherokee Legend

An old Cherokee is teaching his grandson about leadership. "A fight is going on inside the leadership of this country" he said to the boy.

"It is a terrible fight and it is between two wolves. One Wolf has a hard heart - he is anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego." He continued, "The other is good - he is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion, and faith. The same fight is going on inside you, me, and inside every other person, even our President".

The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather, "Which wolf will win?"

The old Cherokee simply replied, "The one you feed."

When we ask ourselves if our President brings out the best in our spirit, that inate goodness that exists in the heart of all Americans or if he seeks out those weaknesses and emotions that divide us, we have to wonder, Do we have a President that in his heart of hearts really believes in the goodness and wisdom of the average American, or if he acknowledges it and then uses that good nature against us.

Which wolf have we been feeding?

Nancy Reagan's Seance answers Obama's call. Dutch Reagan is still watching over us. Thanks for asking

I was reading through a bunch of 5 year old articles professing the general theme that "Ronald Reagan is Dead once and for all, Finally". They all have a hilarious "Whistling past the graveyard" feel to them. One of them is almost pleading, "When will you just accept Reagan is Dead, ...Please!!!"

Here is one of the better ones:

And so, with a resounding, bone-rattling crash, the conservative era ends. Now the scattered and demoralized armies of the right will turn on each other with such ferocity it will make the brutal opening scene of Gladiator look like a slap fight at a slumber party. It's about to get mercenary in the woodshed.

Who lost conservatism? The first instinct among shell-shocked and infuriated partisans will be to blame anybody but their own faction for this historical repudiation.

I've been hearing these panicky liberals this week saying,"We promised America that Big government works, that we are smart enough to make it work and that it actually makes life better and costs less... and when people had their doubts, we said "scouts honor" ... just pass the bill and "Trust us". "This was our big show. Our Super Bowl. Obamacare was our showcase after half a century, we were going to prove to them that Liberalism works. We bet it all on one toss of the dice..."

Now this Albatross of Obamacare is proving Big Government solutions are inherently flawed. It's proving Obama's people are not as focused on being smart at government as they are at Chicago Way eliminitionist hit jobs. Obamacare is not making lives better it is tossing innocent Americans out on the street and endangering peoples lives. It is not lowering costs and in fact is a lead weight on the economy and more costly for all Americans today and into the future. And as far as trusting Obama and the Left to do what's right and be as transparent and honest as possible? Obama lied, he admits he lied and most of his allies admit he lied, because he was afraid we would not go along with his bonehead plan if he had been honest. In essence his entire Presidency from his first campaign promise to his recent non-apology has been a fraud based not on getting honest votes for honest promises, it has been lying to trick people in to voting for him based on lies about things he never intended to do. He is a fraud and a conman that wouldn't be in office if he had told the truth.

So everything Ronald Reagan told us about Liberals turned out to be true and the American people are looking for other times in our past history when a bumbling President was wallowing in a crappy economy and sending his envoys to Iran in hopes that more talk would fix it all up and make them play nice. Hmmm.

In 2008 in Obama's first press conference after the election he chose to make the widowed former First Lady Nancy Reagan the butt of a joke about seances and contacting the dead President. Five years later, Nancy Reagan called Barack Obama back today to let him know, Ronald Reagan received his call and wanted to leave the current President a message:

"Barack, This is Dutch Reagan. I'm not here right now, but just wanted you to know, my spirit is still watching over the American people and with your great example of failed big government boondoggles, like ObamaCare, Reaganism lives on forever and ever. George and Abe are up here with me watching you pray to get out of this mess and we all agree. Put your faith in the American people, the constitution, stop hatin' on people and remember, when you cheat at golf, you're only cheating yourself. Good luck with the whole Legacy thing."

So President Obama, next time you or Secretary Sebelius watch a computer screen go blank and say "The Obamacare System is not responding at this time" and it seems like there is a ghost in the machine, Listen carefully and you'll a warm voice say, "Well, There you go again".

Obamacare is Vaporware

It is hilarious watching the lefties use GOP 2009 accusations as if they designed them in to their calculus.

They said it wasn't a tax, then they argued before SCOTUS it was.

Ezra Klein et al now give us the "Its not a bug, its a feature" line about we need "Young indestructibles" to sign up for geriatric disease coverage in order to cover old and sick former hippies. It's a transfer payment, just admit it. For 40 years, I've heard people say, how can we pay for the baby boomers when the demographic bulge hits 70. Now we know. Young people will pay directly through what Chief Justice Roberts calls a tax, or they will pay indirectly by way of massive federal debt.

Obama claimed this was all about saving the lives of 40 million uninsured Americans who are dying to be covered, but can't afford it. The truth is, if you subtract the illegal aliens (God Bless em) that Joe Wilson got so agitated about (You lie, Mr President), then the millions who qualify but dont sign up for programs and so on, it comes down to about 8 million. Many of these are the young undestructibes who figured "we don't care, we'll take the risk". Ezra Klein and the gang are saying, "Don't care or not, we'll force you to pay for something you will almost certainly not use". They are admitting this as if it is clever. They are saying these sorry Gen X'rs that we conned in to voting for this are going to pay for the old folks who for the most part already had insurance, but we're going to get them better plans... and then when the old and sick start receiving life sustaining treatment in this transfer payment, we can jack them around every four years with terrifying ads of Paul Ryan pushing them off a cliff.

This was never about limiting the solution to helping the 8 million. It was about ripping the old system apart and building it in to a model that they control... and the control is about political control.

Again, they even admit this one too. Last week on the Sunday shows, the lefties were saying, "Let's face it, these bad plans had to go, and this was from the beginning a plan to wipe out the "Old system" of Health Care, because it didn't work".

Says Who? Apparently over 5 million have been kicked to the curb and are not happy about their little corner of the old system getting blown up. And when the business mandate comes around a majority of Americans are going to ask when the "Whole system needs to be nuked" philosophy came along. Isn't that the root of the Obama lie.

Another switcheroo is the idea that tens of thousands will die if we don't get the 8 million coverage, but now Obama and his staff argue that "It' only about 5% of the population that is getting cancelled right now". What if the GOP said, Its only 8 million back in 2009. 5% is over double the 8 million. "Not a bug, Its a feature..."

In the computer industry, which Obama likes to admit now, "I don't write code",... they have a term called "Vaporware". It has several meanings. One is when a company announces a software package that never actually gets built in order to freeze out competitors with the buzz that they are now the leader in this new area. It is meant to buy time and manipulate the market. There is also the practice of rolling out beta software that they know doesn't work 100%, because the first 95% of the code is easy, but the last 5% will cost more than initial development combined. Then they rely on complaints and reports of technical glitches from guinea pigs in the public to solve the last 5% and by then version 2 is on its way and the negative fallout was handled through press releases and clever public relations professionals. That is what Obama admitted in his response to Chuck Todd this week. This was Vaporware. He was asked if he lied and he said it would work for 98%, and the rest would work out based on the better deals available. He was admitting he knew millions would get screwed, but the rollout would continue, which is the important thing and public reations by a compliant media woud smooth it over and who cares anyway, I didn't come here to be loved by the haters. I'm on a mission to "Fundamentally" blah blah. Never mind that this is not about a PC locking up because of a glitch from Vaporware, it is people dying. Or that old grandma he wanted to give a painpill to, rather than an expensive lifesaving treatment. Glitch indeed.

It is amazing the delusion. Today Cynthia Parker and David Gregory were comparing this to Iraq, "Except Iraq was about Life and Death and this is not". Say what? With the all the due respect to our soldiers, there were 4000 dead over 5 years? As Klein estimates above 20k per year for lack of coverage and we haven't even gotten started with the detonation of this tower of Babel. People will die at a rate far higher than Iraq, but they will die in a less dramatic fashion in quiet neglected places thanks to Obama and David Gregory.

Another delusion was Bob Woodward on FNS saying this is not a scandal like Watergate or Lewinsky, because Obama meant well and was trying to do something good? Oh Really? You actually believe that Mr. Hard nosed journalist demigod?

At the worst what was Nixon trying to do if he even knew about the breakin? He wanted to win an election and was willing to deceive Americans and cover up wrong doing,.... Why? ... because he wanted to do so many good things, Mr. Woodward, right? Just like Obama he had benevolent plans for the next 4 years, If Nixon even knew about this in his first term.

On the other hand, Obama meant well? Really? He wanted to give coverage to the 8 million? No, we've already established that. He had a massive secret plan that he lied about and he lied to win an election, just as Nixon wanted to win. We have no proof Nixon was trying to conceal a Benghazi or "You can keep your policy" scam, but we have proof Obama was lying to win an election based on fraud.

When Obama was riding high last month after the end of the Shut Down he spiked the football and said, "If you want to do something in this town win an election!" This was his now familiar trash talking about "I won, so stick it". He has said many times, the people wanted this and the proof is my re-election, as if Obamacare was the pivotal issue. It was barely mentioned, because Romney ran away from it. Yet, Obama claimed it was a mandate on Obamacare? Obamacare that was never meant to be, because we now know, he was lying about Obamacare. So, if 2012 was as he spikingly says was a stamp of approval on propelling him back in office, then the fact that he resides at 1600 Pennsylvania is a fraud based on a massive lie. His measuring stick, not ours.

When Rev. Wright said Obama is willing to lie to get elected, he was right. He lied to get in and he lied to stay in and he delayed the roll out until after re-election and nooowww....

The Circular Logic of Obama-ism

From the very beginning of Barack Obama's introduction to the American people, there have been weird responses and defenses to the usual responsible questions we use to vet our potential leaders. The strange thing is these strange circular responses continue now and when the responder is forced by logic to return to the beginning of the circle, they realize they are in an embarrassing box and their immediate reaction is an emotional attack from an undeserving victim.

Here are some examples.

Question: What experience and background does this man have to be the leader of the most powerful nation on earth at one of the most dangerous and consequential times in our history?

Response: He stands for hope and change. He represents new ideas. He understands how badly the worst President in the history of the world has damaged our country and everybody agrees its time for change.

Question:But what specifically does he have that makes him the best choice out of 300 million people.

Response: Well, he ran a historic campaign in the primaries and nobody expected him to win.

Question:Why historic?

Response: He was running against the establishment. He was smart enough to prove everybody wrong and overcome the ignorance and opposition. His book the Audacity of Hope says it all. It all comes down to his unique narrative.

What exactly does that mean? Ignorant opposition and his "Unique Narrative"? I don't fully understand your euphemisms.

Response: You just don't get it. Its a new world. Get with the program.

Question: Its just confusing. You seem to be saying he is qualified for an office he is running for, simply because he runs for that office better than the expectations of some imaginary group.

Response: Are you a racist or something?

I'm sorry. I'll be quiet now.

Here is another line of thought or shall I say circle.

Question: Why is Obama claiming opposition to his foreign policy is immoral.

Response: The Syrians have chemical weapons and they used them on their own people. Do you have no shame?

Question: How do you know this and why does that make ME immoral?

Response: You just have to trust the President on WMD, he has intelligence reports. It would be immoral not to get involved in the civil war if millions will die by WMD.

Question: He claims 1000 have died by WMD if you trust his intel, yet he proposes no action based on the 120,000 others that have died by conventional means. No one has mentioned millions.

Response: If we don't act there could be a domino based on our failure to stand up for justice. What do you mean trust his intel? He is not some Cowboy Bush. He recognizes the mistake in bombing people in the mideast for dumb reasons like sketchy claims that they have WMD or that they associate with terrorists. Middle Eastern civil wars are their problem. This is the main reason Bush is the worst President ever and Obama would never do that. You should trust Obama because he doesn't lie about surveilance programs that spy on Americans and mainly because he cares about people and Bush only cared about making he and his secret oil buddies rich off the oil.

Question: Bush lives in a modest Suburban home in North Dallas and is nowhere as rich as Barack Obama who earned millions of dollars in office. Bush never got rich on oil from Iraq. Is that the basis of your saying that Bush waged war not because he cared, but for his own personal gain, but you know Obama does not pursue policies for his own benefit? Obama could have acted on the Chemical warfare reports in 2012, during the campaign in 2012, but he did not. Was that for his own personal benefit or because he cared more than Bush? That crucial delay allowed Al Qaeda to move in and fill a leadership void in the rebel opposition. Now he wants us to give weapons to Al Qaeda? I'm sure Bush would have been criticized for that?

Response: Part of Obama's advantage over his Democrat opponents in 2008 is he opposed the Iraq war early on. We warned the GOP if they did not pull out before the Surge and just let nature take its course, they would lose the confidence of the American people. Obama drove that point home and it proved the immorality of their party and why we are the good guys. What you don't understand is Obama's drone policy and other security measures are not the problem, it was a matter of whether you could trust the man who carried out those policies. America could not trust Bush and found out he was a bad if not the worst President and now they realize Obama is the best ever.

Question: So Obama is the best of 44 Presidents, because he opposed his predecessors policies, but its OK if he mimics those policies, because the policies themselves are not bad, just the trustworthiness of the leadership that follows those policies, yet the trustworthiness is based on the policies themselves? Now you are asking us to follow Obama in to Syria merely on trust and yet he is rewarding Iran with one on one dialogue with no preconditions, but won't speak to his own House of Representatives because he says they are terrorists for asking for a delay in Obamacare based solely on the concept that only a crazy person would claim that Obamacare shoud be delayed, yet he asked for a corporate delay and now his own party asks for one. How does that make sense?

Response: The GOP are concern trolls. They don't care. Obama asked for a delay to fix problems created by the ignorant opposition. The GOP know Obamacare will work and want to delay it to destroy it. They don't really think it will fail on its own.

Question: Don't you feel uncomfortable that Obama lied?

Response: He didn't lie. It's only a lie if you know its a lie. He assumed the American people were not so dumb that they would want to keep a sub standard plan. When he said you could keep your plan if you like it, but he just hasn't had the chance to explain why the plan you are being forced in to is better and that you will like it. You can keep the plan that you like and when he is done with you, you will like it. So thats not a lie. There are a lot of bad people that want to sabotage this great program and they are trying to make it not work. Its no surprise. He is a good person and the very fact that he is being accused of lying is proof that his ignorant opposition doesn't appreciate his unique narrative.

There is that unique Narrative again. What does that mean

It means we need to spy on Tea Partiers, use the IRS to inimidate people that don't vote right, shut down companies that fund Obama's opponents, censor Fox News and talk radio, disarm the populace, nationalize Catholic schools and make them pay for abortions, hide our inner workings whenever possible, threaten the press if they get to close to the truth, manipulate voting practices to ensure people who vote correctly get a first and second crack at the polling places and Crush the ignorant opposition wherever possible in order to force permanent and fundamental change in America forever, whether you like it or not. .. Oh, and also... you are a racist
