Fair is fair, right? Poverty for everyone!

Excerpts of the State of the Union speech released early this afternoon have some yawns because of the SOS=same ole same... "endangered American dream...income inequality...We can either settle for a country where a shrinking number of people do really well while a growing number barely get by. Or we can restore an economy where everyone gets a fair shot, everyone does their fair share and everyone plays by the same set of rules," the president said.

The trouble with this "agenda" of his is that he just shot down an excellent opportunity to stimulate the economy, generate an excellent energy independence (or at least potential of it) by saying no to the Keystone pipeline project. All I can say is "What an idiot!" The only reason I can see why he would veto it is because he can't get his fat, government hands into that particularly sweet pie.

I particularly like what Gov. Mitch Daniels (Indiana) said about him: "pro-poverty with divisive tactics." According to an AP report on Daniels excerpts before the speech this evening Daniels said, "No feature of the Obama presidency has been sadder than its constant efforts to divide us, to curry favor with some Americans by castigating others." 

That about sums it up for me, too. I have seen watching a most inept president trying desperately to act like Robin Hood taking from the rich to give to the poor. The only problem is when you give to the poor, whom Jesus said would always be with us, they keep asking for more and more. I'm not talking about the rich poor, those people who do not consider themselves poor and who have work ethics of the highest standards. I'm talking about the poor who call their welfare checks their salary and who feel entitled to freeload on the backs of hardworking Americans. 

He opened and closed his speech with "his capture" of Osama Bin Laden. This is as if the CIA, the Military and NSA were doing their dead levelest to find OBL since 2001! Then he took more power into his own hands than any other president before him. He ordered OBL shot and killed. This was not in battle, it was more like a hit and murder than a police action. The founding fathers never had an inkling thought about taking another person's life whether private citizen or public enemy #1 without some judiciary action. It was never an Executive decision to gun down Bonnie and Clyde, it was a police action against criminals who fired shots first. We are not in a one world government with one world police force and a one world judicial system with one man to decide whether a criminal lives or dies without a trial.

Does anyone but me see the dangerous trend this president is usurping for himself?
