Obama´s Smug America
American Spectator, by George Neumayr

Original Article

Posted By:MissMolly, 11/15/2012 6:16:49 AM

By every objective measure, America is in decline. But liberals insist that it is moving "forward." The modern philosophy of progress is Darwinian, holding that the latest development, whether of a country or a species, is always the best one. Mutations are assumed to be perfective, not destructive. Obama is the one "we have been waiting for," chanted his followers in 2008. They identified him as the agent of the final phase in liberalism´s revolution. In 2012, Obama drew upon this revolutionary hope again, coining "forward" as his campaign slogan. The rhetoric was slightly more subdued --

Darwinianism also admits the possibility of extinction.

FEMA´s in charge of Darwinism in NY and NJ right now.

Christie fawned all over Obama,helping him win the election,ostensibly to secure federal funds. Guess what those funds aren´t coming so there´s going to have to be a tax increase. The media and left will rejoice over raising taxes and say all republican governors should be like Christie.

Obama and the Obamunists are smug because they´re not too terribly interested in reality. After all, the world owes them a livin´. And like the fabled grasshopper, not the industrious ant, they´re going to continue fiddling until winter comes and freezes them to death. Winter´s almost here.

Heres the nasty little truth about evolution.

The VAST majority of mutastions are either inconsequential, or fatal. "perfection" is only reached after a lot af "imperfection" dies out.

And the other little truth, there is no perfection, evolution whether Natural or societal is a response to change. Those who cannot adapt die out.Mammoths couldn´t adapt to a warming world (Neandertals either). Communist countries could not adapt to the information revolution. Most freed colonies could not adapt to self rule. The list is endless.

Republicans better learn to adapt to the changing AMerican landscape as well.

Evolution is inevitable, no one is exempt.

on Drudge today it showed a picture of the Chinese leader with the caption ´top commie´ . There was a picture of obama close by. The captions should have been the same. Frank M. Davis would be so proud to watch scores of ´educated´ vote for communism couched as ´fairness´. Fair in communist ussr in the 60´s meant everyone but the ´leaders´ had nothing but cold and starvation and no hope. We are moving ´forward´ rapidly to that conclusion. Only a true hatred filled unAmerican like obama could reilsh that conclusion for what has been the greatest democracy on earth. those who relish destruction will reap the same whether they have the sense to see it or not.

#3, the ´grasshopper and the aunt´ analogy is quite good.
However, I don´t think these particular ants will be so willing to rescue these particular grasshoppers.

And speaking of brilliant analogies, I love the caption to today´s photo, the "Trylon and Perisphere".
Had to look it up because I just knew it would be something brilliant, and it was.
They were two structures created for the 1939 New York Worlds Fair.

if leftists think evolution is so great, why aren´t they in favor of man made climate change? by their reckoning, it would be a perfect example of Darwinism. but, why ask why about anything any one of them thinks? They don´t think.

White House, Cabinet Room

OBAMA: You folks represent the first entirely recessed Cabinet in American history. Do me proud. Let´s go round the table. HHS?
MICHAEL MOORE: Amend ObamaCare to include lesser beings, sir.
OBAMA: No. First, the remaining mammalians; then, things with legs; finally, air breathers. Treasury?
PAUL KRUGMAN: Stimulus IV should tip the worldwide economy into depression within a year, sir.
OBAMA: Good. That gets us closer to a one-world government. OMB?
BERNIE MADOFF: [videoconferencing from prison] Economies are annoyingly resilient, sir.
OBAMA: Agreed. Allred, have DOJ lawyers discover justification for footing a European bailout. We’ll overwhelm their systems with worthless dollars. CIA?
MATT DAMON: al-Zawaheri´s on board, sir. We´ll get non-specific advance notice of an atrocity if we grant him U. S. citizenship and a drone exemption.
OBAMA: Go for it. NSA, how’d it work out with Chavez?
SEAN PENN: He’s adopted me, sir.
OBAMA: Congratulations, Chico. Transportation?
AL GORE: Phase out private ownership of vehicles by the end of your third term, sir. At that point, traveling by high-speed rail—-whether or not it exists-—becomes compulsory.
OBAMA: Tap the Amish for additional public transport ideas. Defense?
ADAM BALDWIN: Devote half the budget to weapons procurement, sir.
OBAMA: Alec, this doesn’t sound like you. We can’t . . . wha? Oh Good Lord, I picked the wrong Baldwin! Oh, well. State?
YOKO ONO: Divvy up our nukes to the world, sir. We can only negotiate when everyone starts from a position of strength.

Wicked, #9. But Sheila Jackson-Lee´s talents are wasted if not heading up a newly combined NASA/Dept of Education.

And what of FEMA and the sports industry? Those must be combined and elevated to Cabinet status - headed by either Ron Artest or Malik Zulu Shabazz.

Somehow, a new department should be created for Jay-Z. Ministry of Level Playing Fields and Equal Outcomes perhaps. Or maybe Boundaries of Good Taste Dept.

The campaign theme, "Forward" can be found in the communist manifesto, Uncle Alinsky used to brainwash his followers. Our IMPOSTER in the Oval Office was born in Kenya to a Muslim/Communist father and a Communist mother. Barack Hussein Mohammad Soetoro Obama will use his second term to continue his quest toward turning the USA into a Communist satellite/third world country.When he finishes his secone term, We, The People can then file charges against him and Pelosi for their collusion, as she knew when she approved his fake Hawaiian birth certificate it has been ´manufactured´. They both deserve looooong term jail time to answer for their crime of pulling the largest scam against the USA and for degrading the office of president. We did NOT get the Change we were promised, all we got was an ingnorant black, Kenyan who HATES EVERYTHING America, and intends on destroying OUR GREAT nation as we know it, NOT what he thinks it should be. Impeachment would be too good for this FAUX president and his entire corrupt administration, and his czars.

It was the best of hugs; it was the worst of hugs. Or so the description might have gone had Charlie Crist labored a bit longer on his new memoir, in which the erstwhile governor of Florida—who is now campaigning for the job again—relives the fateful embrace with President Obama that he claims sunk his political fortunes in 2009. Rather than try for style, Crist renders the moment with the racy, staccato gusto that one might expect from a pulpy romance. “We shook hands. The new president leaned forward and gave me a hug. Reach. Pull. Release.” A hundred or

A FedEx truck crossed a freeway and slammed head-on into a bus carrying students in Northern California, killing 10 people, authorities said Friday. The collision Thursday evening killed both drivers, five students and three chaperones, said Lt. Bill Carpenter with the California Highway Patrol. At least 34 people were taken to local hospitals, authorities said. The bus was taking students from various Los Angeles-area schools to visit Humboldt State University in Arcata. The collision occurred in Orland, about 100 miles north of Sacramento. In a statement, the university said it got word of the crash but was working to find out more details.

Give this retching, crying, sniveling, vomiting degenerate an Academy Award! I don’t know how much more I can take of Oscar Pistorius’ rubbish. A prosecutor on Wednesday ordered the athlete known as the “Blade Runner’’ for the carbon-fiber blades that replace his lower legs — which he’s not afraid to use as props to score pity — to “take responsibility’’ for slaughtering his beautiful girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp, on Valentine’s Day, 2013. He told Pistorius, 27, to look at a picture of the blood- and human-tissue-covered head of the model and TV personality, who died, like a caged animal, at age 29 inside

Rolling Stone’s Constitution cover is in need of an amendment. The cover of the storied rock magazine’s latest issue features a naked Julia Louis-Dreyfus with a faulty U.S. Constitution inked on her back. Just above her derriere sits the signature of one of the nation’s most prominent Founding Fathers, John Hancock. There’s only one problem, however: John Hancock didn’t sign the U.S. Constitution. Hancock, president of the Second Continental Congress, actually signed the Declaration of Independence. His autograph on that document is so stylish and large, in fact, that it inspired the use of his full name as a synonym for

RICHGROVE, Calif. — In March 2013, a man with brooding, mahogany eyes and a walrus mustache traveled from his home in California to visit relatives in Alabama. The trip did not end well. When a business acquaintance insulted Jose Manuel Martinez´s daughter, Martinez put two bullets in the man´s head, officials said. It was a matter "of family honor," Errek Jett, an Alabama prosecutor, said Wednesday. But it was not, it turned out, the first time he had killed — far from it, authorities believe. Martinez, 51, was charged Tuesday with killing nine men mostly in California´s Central Valley, part of a

A Southern California city declared the factory that produces Sriracha hot sauce a public nuisance Wednesday night, and gave its operators 90 days to make changes that stop the spicy odors that have prompted complaints from some residents. The Irwindale City Council´s action allows city officials to enter the factory and order changes if the odors persist after the 90-day deadline. The measure passed by a unanimous 4-0 vote. The decision came despite testimony by air-quality experts that progress was being made toward a resolution.

Republicans are demanding greater transparency on how much the administration spent to promote and implement Obamacare — and hitting back at President Obama´s claim that he “didn´t make a hard sell.” The new effort comes after Obama´s claim that the administration met its goal of enrolling more than 7 million people without spending billions. “We didn´t make a hard sell,” Obama said. “We didn´t have billions of dollars to spend on commercials like our critics did.” But both Republicans and Democrats on Capitol Hill estimate the administration has spent roughly $4 to 5 billion to get the Affordable Care Act running, including hundreds

Despite the Obama administration´s insistence that everyone -- the government, insurance companies, doctors, medical providers, and consumers -- will reap benefits from Obamacare, a recent grant proposal by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) suggests that the agency does have concerns about the ongoing financial viability of one player in the health care market: so-called family planning centers. HHS intends to spend up to $800,000 to fund studies to "conduct data analysis and related research and evaluation on the impact of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) on Title X funded family planning centers."

The son of the Nevada rancher locked in an increasingly tense land dispute with the federal government, says their cowboys managed to break a blockade and retrieve around 30 head of cattle. Federal agents swooped on Tuesday after Cliven Bundy, dubbed the last remaining rancher in southern Nevada, refused to remove his herd of 900 cows from land he claims has been in his family since 1870. The heavily-armed federal agents, equipped with eight helicopters and backed-up by snipers, surrounded the Bundy ranch after the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) attained a federal court order to confiscate the family´s herd.

Following the massacre of grammar-school children in Newtown, Conn., in December 2012, high-powered weapons have been used to kill innocent victims in more senseless public incidents. Those killings, however, are only a fragment of the total harm caused by the misuse of firearms. Each year, more than 30,000 people die in the United States in firearm-related incidents. Many of those deaths involve handguns. The adoption of rules that will lessen the number of those incidents should be a matter of primary concern to both federal and state legislators.

Many Americans have been watching with great consternation the ongoing struggle between the Federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the U.S. Marshals against Cliven Bundy and his family. There are no signs of either side relinquishing their position. Many onlookers have been informed that this dispute is over protecting the desert tortoise. But it is nothing of the sort. In fact, the reality of the dispute goes far underneath what is being talked about. The more appropriate source of the dispute is ground water as well as surface water -- this is a war over water.

Big Government: As students flood Twitter with images of inedible slop, it´s clear that Michelle Obama´s government school lunch revamp is a costly failure. It´s time to get the feds out of kids´ lunch boxes.

Nearly a year into the IRS scandal, we still don´t know exactly what happened—though we are finally getting an inkling. That´s thanks to the letter House Ways and Means Chairman Dave Camp sent this week to the Justice Department recommending a criminal probe of Lois Lerner. The average citizen might be dizzied by the torrent of confusing terms—BOLO lists, Tigta, 501(c)(4)—and the array of accusations that have made up this IRS investigation. Mr. Camp´s letter takes a step back to remind us why this matters, even as it provides compelling new information that goes to motive and method—and clarifies some of

Solar power has won the global argument. Photovoltaic energy is already so cheap that it competes with oil, diesel and liquefied natural gas in much of Asia without subsidies. Roughly 29pc of electricity capacity added in America last year came from solar, rising to 100pc even in Massachusetts and Vermont.[Snip] The technology is improving so fast--helped by the US military--that it has achieved a virtous circle. Michael Parker and Flora Chang, at Sanford Bernstein, say we entering a new order of "global energy deflation" that must ineluctably erode the viability of oil, gas and the fossil fuel nexus over time.
