Observations From The Margin

Observation Tower

-The Affordable Care Act [Obama Care], was signed into law on March 23, 2010, its implementation was delayed until 2014 so the results wouldn’t affect the 2012 Presidential election. Now they are delaying the implementation until 2015. Does anyone want to take a guess what happens in 2014 that would make them want to delay this for a year? I’ve got an idea, let’s have an election every year so the implementation of Obama Care will be on a permanent one year delay.

-Intelligence Director James Clapper admits lying under oath, but he says he is sorry. This is like the ever popular get out of jail free card, “I take full responsibility for………” No one is ever held accountable for their actions even though they take responsibility for their actions. The ruling elite; which consists of politicians, bureaucrats, and Government employees, are never held to the same standard when they break the law compared to what we citizens deal with everyday from a basic speeding ticket at the local levels, to IRS regulations at the Federal level. Two sets of rules exist in this country, one set for the ruling aristocracy and another set for the serfs. At some point people will not comply.

-The Obama administration is proposing changes in The Freedom on Information Act . These changes would allow federal agencies to lie about the information being sought. When you control information you control individuals. I’m surprised the administration would even worry about changing the rules, they have a track record of not abiding by rules in the first place. If no one holds them responsible for breaking the law, they will keep doing it, just like the dog that isn’t disciplined for peeing on your carpet, will keep peeing on the carpet.

-In all the scandals from Fast and Furious, the IRS targeting tea party groups, the confiscating of reporters electronic communications, the NSA data mining, the Benghazi fiasco, and many others, the administration says these were the fault of low-level employees, and the administration didn’t know anything about what they were doing. If they don’t have enough knowledge to control the Government apparatus, how is it possible for them to have enough knowledge to control the free market. The amount of knowledge needed to even begin to understand what is going on in the free market is exponentially bigger than the amount of knowledge needed to control Government.

-Our favorite  rock stars played in front of packed houses back in the day, now thirty years later they are playing in small clubs for hundreds of people. President Obama spoke in front of 250,000 in Germany before his first election, he was lucky to get  20 thousand two weeks ago for a speech at the same venue. It’s only been five years, either the presidency prematurely ages you, or the thrill is gone.

-Do people who condemn the U.S. for force feeding prisoners who are on hunger strikes at Guantanamo Bay realize the alternative is letting them starve to death?

-The President lectured on constitutional law at the University of Chicago Law School from ’92 to ’04. After watching the way he has used the constitution as toilet paper or a cape, I hope his students either got F’s or withdrew from the class.
