Have any of you been listening to Talk Radio?  Specifically, Rush and Sean?  Why….You would think that the whole world was about to end.  Republican voters are calling in, and have been calling in ever since their anointed one Mitt Romney lost the election. I mean these guys were so sure that Mitt was a shoe in that they were already making inaugural plans.  Ohhh the great plans I am sure they were gonna have. Well, it all fell through, and they have been crying the blues ever since.

Many of these supporters figure that this might very well be the end of the Grand Ol’ Party.  It’s over, they cry.  We gotta change, We gotta do this, We gotta do that, and on and on it goes.  You of course are all aware that this spells the end of this great United States of America as we know it today.  Then there is Rush and Sean, both still trying to figure out what went wrong.  How we lost this one. I mean, they say, it was a shoe in. Mitt should won and run this Leftist Socialist out-of-town.

Now, after at least calming the troops a little, they are crying about the up-coming Fiscal Cliff.  That is where if we do not come up with a major Fiscal Budget plan, one that slices and dices the Federal Budget, then all these tax hikes will take place on January 1st, 2013.  That’s not all folks, major cuts in all Social Programs across the board.  Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security, SSI, SSD, you name it, it’s cut. Sliced, diced, smashed, destroyed.  Of course, it means the end of the world. It also means it is all the Democrats fault.  Specifically Obama. He started it and by- Gall the Republicans are going to finish it.  I think this is what we refer to as a cultural war.  Rich vs poor.

No it’s not!  It is all part and parcel of the same old mess we were in just before the election. It is nothing more than a racist hate for President Obama. The same old tripe about how they will do nothing that will get this man re-elected. Well, he was re-elected, and he is President of The United States. The people have spoken! Now, whether they like it or not, he is going to be at the helm for the next four years.  Second, we are dealing with an entirely new electorate, and a new brand of American. One that is more intellectual than they were say ten, fifteen, or twenty years ago.  These folks are into critical thinking. They read, listen, see, and then lay low. They do not get in to the fray. Not interested in the fight, not interested at all. They have a life to live, and they go ahead and live it.  But, come election day their voice was heard loud and very clear!  Obama won. And Republicans all over America, dressed to the nine in their fancy thousand dollar suits, and silk ties could not for the life of them figure out what hit them.

Now, don’t get me wrong. I have my issues with President Obama, I have serious reservations with his foreign Policy. Serious problems with how he runs our military complex. I have issues with his obvious arrogance. I have written about it all right here on these pages.  However, all this talk about his socialist ideals, not being an actual citizen of this country, some kind of grand conspiracy, or whatever else these cry babies have hatched up out of the clear blue sky, is nothing more than a mess of silliness.  It is time for us all to accept reality. Realize that Barrack Obama is President of The United States of America, and live with it.  It is time for Congressmen, and Senators to sit down, shut up, pay attention, and compromise.  It is time for these Republican, arrogant rich zealots to realize that they are part of the problem, and offering nothing in the manner of a solution.

So, Dear Reader, if we do run into the Fiscal Wall, run off the road, over the cliff, into the swamp, it is not going to be the fault of the President. Look to those Republicans holding up the train, because they are not capable of changing their ways. They think one way, and one way only.  And most important, they are the adults in the room. They said it.  They have all the answers, and the rest of us are…… well, we are just plan stupid.  Don’t believe it?  Just ask any Republican.

Now, if we can’t compromise, and deal with the situation as it is. If Republicans can not lick their wounds, and come to the table and work this thing out. If we do go over the cliff, over the side, down the drain, or whatever you want to call it.  Then come two years from now I can assure you of this, one and all, there are going to be major changes in Washington.  Then we will have a Democrat President.  We’ll have a Democrat House, and a Democrat Senate.  Then maybe we can get something done.

Well that’s my point of view. My hope is that these clowns, Democrat and Republican alike come to the table, put their petty self-interest aside, and negotiate a real budget that does not punish the Middle Class and the Poor, while taking care of the very people who got us into this mess in the first place.  The Richest of the Rich. The fat Cat’s on Wall Street!

Have a good night and as usual God Bless America!

Man….That felt good!


I am 62 years old. I've been blogging for several years. I am into History and Politics as well as currant events. The latter being the main issues covered on these pages. I was a Community Advocate for twenty years, and a volunteer aide in a State Representatives Office in my home state of Michigan. While I have basically ceased these activities, I still watch the world around me closely and report on it as much as I can, which I might add is often. I encourage comments on my Blogs. I only ask that we keep our opinions clean and without insults threats or intimidation. I hope you take time to read The Horton Journal, and look forward to your comments.
