Coming soon to a nation of over 3oo,000,000 citizens – the Progressive Democrat Big Top Circus follow up extravaganza – of the Obama & Illinois Democrat Majority legacy for Illinois citizens. Unpaid bills, overextended credit, people struggling for healthcare availability and everyday necessities with the needy paying the price for Progressive Hubris. Welcome to the world of Obama wannabe socialism.
Normally – I would have something snarky to say about the selection of a new Pope. Don’t get me wrong I have great respect for most religious organizations – even the Catholic Church. They do great things for many-many people. I am not a Catholic but I am a Christian that very much believes in God and Christ. But in my personal estimation, the Catholic Church – much like many religious institutes of all sects and beliefs – have become centered too much on operating like top-heavy corporations searching for markets. Somewhere down the line the Christian Churches have stopped teaching the message of God and started teaching the messages of individual pulpit orators – marketing their personal message instead of the word of God. In many ways the modern world has built up a resemblance to ancient Sodom and Gomorrah.
I am sure that some of my personal beliefs will clash with the new Pope. And perhaps history will prove me wrong – but so far everything I have read about the newly selected Pope-Francis-I actually melts a little of the cynicism I have about those who have taken the helm of modern Christian Churches. A New Pope -and perhaps- A New Hope for Mankind. We shall see.
During the GW Bush presidential years the Bush Deranged – hysteria fed by the even more deranged media – about how the Bush administration was going to listen in on their personal phone calls while searching for terrorists. So they whined and bellyached about how much better life would be ruled by a left-wing progressive politician. The Deranged and the media got their way as we are now entering our second term under the Progressive leadership of Socialist/Communist-wannabe Barack Obama. And while they all screamed their heads off worrying about how Bush Ad. might overhear them plotting secret rendezvous behind their spouses back they all continue to remain fairly silent as extremist policies by the Obama Administration looks into way further methods of invading personal privacy than Bush Ad. ever considered. The most latest Obama Ad. revelation- Eric Holder claims drone strikes against Americans on American soil -without judicial authorization, other than his own- is perfectly legal.
And the Bush Deranged were worrying old Georgie might realize they were busy cheating on wifey.
Looks to me the Deranged might wanna worry less about whether someone having giggles listening to their personal shortcomings over the phone and be more concerned about an Obama drone lighting up their half-moons with a hellfire missile. But then history has shown constantly that is always a worry when you put your political trust in a Socialist/Communist wannabe like Obama.

It’s not all good. I feel bad for current parents when they are trying to evaluate school systems and teachers that are overseeing their child’s education. Especially since more and more teachers are getting exposed teaching extracurricular activities that don’t belong on the curriculum. When I was growing up you usually felt your kids were in good hands when you sent them off to school, especially, since most of the teachers were probably sensible women/mothers and not horny old geezers. But now the news is continually flooded with women teachers getting slapped on the hands – that would get their male counterparts tossed in prison without a key- for taking sexual liberties with children they are supposed to be educating!
To steal an old cigarette adage- You Have come a long-way baby. But in these creepy cases it ain’t in a good way.
Despite the fact that his political views are mostly a polar opposite of mine, I respect Liberal Journalist Juan Williams, as he is one of the few journalists on the “left or the right” whom usually debates his opinion with an opponent rather than just castigates the opposition. In an interview with Ginni Thomas, Mr. Williams makes an observation about the progressive left that I have been talking about ever since I started blogging –>
“I always thought it was the Archie Bunkers of the world, the right-wingers of world, who were more resistant and more closed-minded about hearing the other side,” he said. “In fact, what I have learned is, in a very painful way — and I can open this shirt and show you the scars and the knife wounds — is that it is big media institutions who are identifiably more liberal to left-leaning who will shut you down, stab you and kill you, fire you, if they perceive that you are not telling the story in the way that they want it told.”

The last couple of years I occasionally posted about how I noticed some area medical establishments were no longer accepting Medicaid due to the State of Illinois‘ poor track record in paying those in the medical industry. Recently I was at a local medical establishment and I noticed that they had a sign up that stated – due to the State of Illinois slow payment system as well as their often denial of claims, any employee of the State, using the State of Illinois CIGNA plan, must pay for all services before treatment, then personally file any claims with Illinois/CIGNA services. Ouch! Illinois strikes again! And yet the voters continue to keep voting in these same Snake-oil Salesmen whom fleece the electorate over and over again. Stupid is as stupid does and there is a lot of stupid going on in the deadbeat Illinois government. And the silence from the watchdogs supposedly protecting the state and the nation (the media) is deafening.

Our revels now are ended. These our actors,
As I foretold you, were all spirits, and
Are melted into air, into thin air:
And like the baseless fabric of this vision,
The cloud-capp'd tow'rs, the gorgeous palaces,
The solemn temples, the great globe itself,
Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve,
And, like this insubstantial pageant faded,
Leave not a rack behind.
The Illinois Department of Corrections violated its own policies when it hired former Congressman Phil Hare's son as an assistant warden at East Moline Correctional Center, according to a report by the state's inspector general..... The inspector general launched an investigation into the hiring in response to information "it obtained that the Illinois Department of Corrections hired a politically-connected but otherwise unqualified person."In other words as I mused back in this previous post from September of 2011; Lou Hare was not a qualified candidate, yet was quickly slotted into a high level position at East Moline Correctional Center. The selection was pure politics. The Congressman's boy needed a job and despite lacking four of the six job requirements was handed the job despite that there was no doubt being untold others far more qualified for the job that never even got the chance to apply. And what are they going to do about it? the usual - nothing.
Obama Acolyte, Chicago Mayor Rham Emmanuel is attempting to use his political position to intimidate Banking Corporations to cease lending money to firearm manufacturers that disagree with his personal political beliefs on gun-control. Perhaps it is time to announce to Chicago to stop their Thuggish Mayor and make him quit attempting to impose his anti-second amendment beliefs on the rest of the country or protectors of the second amendment will start boycotting his cities tourist attractions.
The news media was considered so important by our founding fathers that they were given special protections under the First Amendment in order that they could be the watchdogs that kept an eye on our government. Still For every Woodward and Bernstein there are untold amounts of reporters drinking the Kool-Aid of some politician with Jim Jones-like charisma, instead of doing their job as public watchdog. The fact is the media has never been very good at being the watchdog of government as, too many of them tend to blend into the maddened mob of followers of legislators that they have become enamored with. The worst in my lifetime has been the press’s intense infatuation with Barack Obama. The current media’s objectivity is not just suspect but nonexistent. The disgraceful methods of journalism used by the Obama worshiping media continue to leak out. This time by a self-admitted acolyte of the False Prophet, Barack Obama!
