Never let it be said that, in order to have the effective ‘change’ our Leader has promised, Americans have to be willing to compromise here and there. Balderdash! OK, sure the economy remains slightly ‘sluggish’ and yes, there are millions of us who are either unemployed or underemployed. But so what? The 27th of November is a time when we all can be thankful, no matter what kind of mess we collectively might find ourselves in!
In years gone by, when America and Americans were at the top of the World’s heap; wealthy and brimming over with a surplus of goods and services, we all had enough to go around. Even the poor could look forward to a nice Thanksgiving repast at local houses of charity. Others, more well off, enjoyed tables that spilled over with all the trappings of an opulent society; turkey, yams, sweet potatoes, cranberry sauce, you name it and that item graced many a table. Family and friends would all gather together to give thanks for living in one Nation, under God with Liberty for all…. Today, that isn’t so much the case.
After almost a decade of watching the transfer of wealth to other nations, most notably China, America quickly went from creditor to debtor status, to the tune of 18 trillion dollars! And, under Obama’s astute leadership, that debt continues to accrue at the rate of a trillion a year. Tick tick tick…
Today, on the eve of Thanksgiving 2014, America finds herself in decline just about everywhere one cares to look. China, on the other hand, is rapidly emerging as the new world power and she’s doing it with a vengeance. (That country’s disdain for the West is well documented and yes, her government hackers are capable of taking down our power grid at any time. According to HLS, it now is more a question of not if, but when).
ISIL is rapidly expanding and consolidating her position in the Middle East. A group that is sworn to the destruction of our country and our way of life. And yes, you can bet they will mount an attack on our soil just as soon as it becomes convenient for them to do so. (What’s Emperor Obama doing about that? He’s too busy kowtowing to appeasing Iran and building his Legacy to bother with this country’s security concerns). Truth!
On the home front, our people on the southern border are preparing, as best they can, for a major influx of Mexican and International illegals as the word of Obama’s most recent ‘Amnesty order’ spreads far and wide. The four million who were just granted work permits won’t ever leave now. That’s a fact! And Obama has promised that the other seven million will be granted similar permits, just as soon as he can refresh the ink in his pen.
But wait! There’s more. Just over the horizon are sweeping carbon emission restrictions that Obama so graciously gave away to China. A 26% reduction over the next ten years has been agreed upon for the US with no reductions agreed upon by China! How would we achieve that, you might ask? Simple. Close down most if not all the coal fired electricity plants across the Nation. A move that would cause our energy cost to skyrocket overnight! Oh, and by the way, these actions, enforced by a now well armed EPA would be done via Executive Order – not by any any actions of a lame and growingly useless Congress.
I could go on, but that would be mostly a waste of my time. Truth be told, most Americans no longer seem to care. And, even though many of us will have to make do with less, this time around. Thanksgiving is, and always be, near and dear to my heart!
