Real life soap operas

Updating my blogs has come to a screeching halt.  The ongoing saga of unbelievable arrogant actions by the Obama administration that increases daily has captured my full attention.

When President Obama was first elected, although I did not vote for him, I wanted him to succeed.  I love my country and want everyone to experience a prosperous and productive society.  It is my belief that no matter what side of the political fence you sit on, living in prosperous times is good for the country, no matter who makes it happen.

However, starting with the railroading of Obamacare, I was smelling socialist rats.  Power is a dangerous thing.  I keep thinking about the "hope and change" Fidel Castro promised the Cuban people so many years ago.  All of a sudden, President Obama's campaign slogan bothered me greatly and every day that passes shows that the political agenda that promised change has ushered in incredible political arrogance and a disregard for honesty.

His wish to lead the "most transparent government ever" has proven to be a joke of biblical proportions.

What the Internal Revenue Service has put those who oppose his views through has to be the most unethical practice in the history of our government.  Dirty politics at its finest with an extraordinary arrogance for breaking the law.  How about winning an election fairly and honestly?

And the IRS is going to administer Obamacare?  Now I'm truly scared for the future of the United States.

Then there are the privacy issues on many levels.  This administration deems themselves superior to obeying the law when it comes to snooping on people . . . in this case, the media who have worshiped and adored the Obama administration to the point of glossing by events that should have been on the nightly news for everyone to see and highlighting those events that made the administration look good.  

The good news is that some of the media are now seeing what many have been thinking and saying.  At least Freedom of the Press is still important to them.  It should be.  I don't think that there is anyone out there who just wants to hear what the government wants us to hear.  Hopefully, our society has not become that politically weak where they base their precious votes to the soundbites on the news.  Or have we?

Pay attention to what is going on people . . . we all may live to regret being led to a place we don't want to live in . . . no matter who we are or how much money we have.
