Just what was it the Obama was trying to convey over the weekend when he talked of the “federal family” in relation to Irene? I don’t actually know whether the moron used that phrase…but it was certainly a centrally distributed talking point, appearing in op-eds, press releases and statements from all manner of administration agencies. ( I don’t know if the idiot used it because I decided I didn’t want to listen to his pathetic ramblings about the effort the feds were making to keep you all safe. It was bad enough hearing that traitor Janet Napolitano spreading her BS).
Sounds almost comforting, doesn’t it?
I assume that was the intent of this phrase…to comfort those who feared the impact of the storm. To assure them that daddy Obama was on the job, with all his minions, the heads of a multitude of federal agencies, all working to look after you and protect you. And should you experience any destruction, we, your federal brothers and sisters are ready to step in and solve your problems.
Your big brothers and sisters of the government will teach you the survival skills you need, from how to fill a sandbag to telling you where the storm is and where it is tracking 40 times every hour!
Did that make you feel better?
Did you feel all warm and cosy as those winds were threatening to blow down your home?
This Obama moron is nothing more than a tingle looking for a leg to run up!
As predicted in Friday’s post, his actions over the weekend, and the actions of his administration were designed NOT to prepare for the storm, but to prepare for the political victory that could be gained AFTER the storm.
What I didn’t expect was the “federal family”. Truly, that caught me totally unawares. Of course, it is far more obvious than I would have expected, and far more simple….to this corrupt administration, I tip my hat. This concept was brilliant.
With two simple words, they were able to convey how well big brother can care for you, look after you in your time of need, and provide sustenance and meet all your needs. We are family. We are one. If we can care for you all so well during such a disaster as Irene, how much better able are we to care for you when no disaster is on the horizon?
So Obama and his posse found a way to define the federal government as the savior in these dark times.
Now, we face the aftermath. Those people who believed in the federal family and it’s ability to care for you, will be rewarded with armfuls of trinkets and toys, compliments of Joe the taxpayer. The administration has been laying the groundwork to use this potential tragedy to leverage more spending.
More money will be needed for structural repairs, for assisting families who were flooded out etc etc etc…the list will grow on a daily basis.
Of course, we haven’t yet started hearing about the expensive things….today, it became clear that the insurance companies will not be hurt as much by this event as first thought. Why? Because most of the damage was caused by flooding, NOT by the storm. Unless property owners had flood insurance, they were not covered.
This is bad news for those who will inevitably lose their homes and their belongings as the flood waters rise. But by choosing not to insure for floods, they took that risk.
I expect to see the administration find a way to provide relief for those people….after all, we are a federal family…and a family would not turn its back on a family member in need, right? So your taxes and my taxes will find their way into the pockets of those who chose to take the risk.
Call me a hard ass if you want…but…I feel for those who are flooded out, I feel for their sense of loss. I fully support private charity helping them. I simply do not support government assistance with dollars stolen from everyone else.
Of course, Obama will find himself in a trap if he does not help out. The left will turn on him faster than you can imagine. And the weaklings on the right will support a special fund for these folk that lost everything because they see it as “the right thing to do’.
Well, they have no right to make a moral judgment that involves the use of your money or my money. Who gave these idiots the moral superiority to make those decisions?
The federal family….perhaps one of the most condescending euphemisms for federal government ever promoted.
Speaking of condescending, I want to change gears and look at Al Gore for a moment.
Al Gore…the do nothing vice President under slick willy Bill Clinton.
I have to admit Al did a reasonable job during his campaign for presidency in 200o against George W. Bush.
He did, however, make a major mistake.
If you recall, on election night, as the votes were being counted, Al Gore came out on stage, and conceded victory to George Bush. In a moving concession speech, he congratulated Bush on his victory and left the stage.
Bush did not claim victory at that time.
Of course, it was not over. 30 minutes or so after Gore’s concession, he reappeared on stage…
“Ooooops. Just kidding. I didn’t really concede. That was a mulligan.”
In my world, when someone concedes it is game over.
When a chess player concedes, all play stops. They don’t play a couple more moves each to see what could have happened. It is over…done.
Apparently, in Al Gore’s world, words mean nothing. He showed on that election night the very character of his soul. His words mean nothing. His honor is not important to him. He simply feels he had a right to go again because he made a mistake.
SO, this idiot disappears from the scene for a while after he fights his election loss through the courts in a disgusting display of arrogance.
And then he suddenly reappears as the leading light of the man made global warming movement. Of course, since global warming has been disproved by science, it is now the man made climate change movement…which even Gore knows is impossible to prove or disprove.
This paragon of integrity and honor, this multi millionaire who has amassed in excess of $200 million wealth in the few years he has been the climate change spokesperson, this hypocrite who does not need to practice what he preaches…this idiot, expects us all to bow down before him and be who he wants us to be.
This despicable person sunk to a new low this weekend when talking about man made climate change…
...he likened people who question man made climate change to the racists of his “early years”…
“I remember, again going back to my early years in the South, when the Civil Rights revolution was unfolding, there were two things that really made an impression on me. My generation watched Bull Connor turning the hose on civil rights demonstrators and we went, ‘Whoa! How gross and evil is that?’ My generation asked old people, ‘Explain to me again why it is okay to discriminate against people because their skin color is different?’ And when they couldn’t really answer that question with integrity, the change really started.
Secondly, back to this phrase ‘win the conversation,’” he continued. “There came a time when friends or people you work with or people you were in clubs with — you’re much younger than me so you didn’t have to go through this personally — but there came a time when racist comments would come up in the course of the conversation and in years past they were just natural. Then there came a time when people would say, ‘Hey, man why do you talk that way, I mean that is wrong. I don’t go for that so don’t talk that way around me. I just don’t believe that.’ That happened in millions of conversations and slowly the conversation was won.”
So, what is he trying to say here? Many reports are saying that he is calling opponents of man made global warming as being akin to racists. There may be some of that in there, but I don’t think that is what this all about.
I think Gore is simply trying to STOP the conversation.
After all, if you go to a club and the conversation naturally turns to BTU’s (British Thermal Units” and everybody jumps down your throat saying “Hey man, we don’t talk like that any more”…then eventually the discussion will stop…just as racism stopped, right?
This is the start of the left’s playbook. When you can’t win the debate, kill the discussion.
Has anybody else ever noticed that all of Gore’s talk occurs in his own vacuum? He has NEVER (to my knowledge) undertaken a serious debate one on one with a person of alternate views. We know he has fair debating skills as seen in his debates with Bush (fair, I said, not good!)
Of course, his interest is not in winning a debate. His interest is not even in stopping man made global warming. Nor is his interest in lobbying for a reduction n green house gasses. These are all the surface things that he uses to build his own fortune on the back of the lie that is man made global climate change.
He has thousands of scientists around the world concocting blatantly false information to support his views, because…get this…governments give grants to scientists to study global warming/climate change. Scientists do not get grants to study something they claim does not exist. The scientific community has sacrificed truth on the altar of trinkets provided by the government. This is a world wide phenomenon, and hence is why so many scientists come out in force for the climate change proponents…each one of them unknowingly putting more dollars into the pockets of one, Mr. Al Gore.
Gore sees the writing on the wall. The anti man-made movement gets stronger and produces more irrefutable evidence than it has in the past.
The only way Gore can maintain his standard of luxury living is to shut down the conversation so that the truth can not be heard.
That is what I believe this speech was about…not racism, but shutting down the conversation.
SO…we have the federal family feeding our needs, and we have the global warming movement shutting down the discussion….
Can anyone say….big brother?
