President for Life??

Wednesday, February 27th, 2013

Obama is setting up a new organization, Organizing For Action (OFA). It targets “Hollywood studio executives” who are asked to contribute $500,000 to become a member and with this membership one can meet with Obama four times per year and discuss all manner of matters with him. OFA is drawing up a list of plans for ads and other activities designed to push Obama’s left wing agendas: climate change legislation, same-sex marriage laws, gun control, ballot access, and other “progressive” programs.
OFA wants to keep Obama’s campaign organization up and running ––– in full-time campaign mode in every state. OFA is headed by Jim Messina who headed Obama’s re-election campaign. OFA has targeted not only Hollywood types, but also major Chicago businessman and California energy investors, all at $500,000 a pop!!
Looks like if it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck it’s a duck ––– a big, big duck ––– the opening shot for a third term and beyond ––– president for life! Wow! Hugo Chavez here we come.

The Wisdom of Cicero

Sunday, February 24th, 2013

The blogs, twitter, facebook, u-tube, newspapers magazines—all filled with nonsense, trivia and, puffery. Please note these few comments from Cicero (106 B.C. –– 43 B.C.)

Consider this passage from Cicero’s On Duties:

“Whoever governs a country must first see to it that citizens keep what belongs to them and that the state does not take from individuals what is rightfully theirs. … As for those politicians who pretend they are friends of the common people and try to pass laws redistributing property and drive people out of their homes or champion legislation forgiving loans, I say they are undermining the very foundations of our state. They are destroying social harmony, which cannot exist when you take away money from some to give it to others. They are also destroying fairness, which vanishes when people cannot keep what rightfully belongs to them. For as I have said, it is the proper role of government to guard the right of citizens to control their own property.”

SEEMS LIKE THE WHITE HOUSE NEEDS TO BE EDUCATED.

AND SPEAKING OF EDUCATION, HOW ABOUT THESE WORDS FROM CICERO:

“Nescire autem quid ante quam natus sis acciderit id est semper esse puerum.”
“ Not to know what happened before you were born, that is to be always a boy, to be forever a child.”

TOO BAD THE WISDOM OF THE AGES HAS BEEN UTTERLY FORGOTTEN.              OH LORD, ARE WE IN BAD SHAPE.
