The grease fire in the kitchen, otherwise known as the Obama administration, continues to burn, and while the blaze now climbs the walls around the deep fryer it is obvious we’re watching something akin to amateur night at the local chuckle hut, a sophomoric floundering with desperate stabs at righting Space Ship Utopia in hope of joining the rest of the planets in a heliocentric orbit. Good luck with all that.
The lack of respect and contempt toward the use of public funds and the public trust is rampant at the top and we now see the manifestation of that ugliness on a daily basis, whether it’s the GSA’s Excellent Adventures; a new cable reality show, The Secret Service: Code Word Hooker; pictures of Hillary Gone Wild swilling beer like a drunken prom date; Leon Panetta jetting around like a rock star at $26 Grand a pop; or yet another White House sanctioned photo showing this president with his feet on the furniture as if he was living in a dorm room. The sequel to Fast and Furious is Demonize and Deflect thanks to talking-point-yammering that states oil futures trading is the cause of higher gas prices, which in addition to being false is making the incredible shrinking man seem even smaller when he reads the gibberish aides paint on his teleprompter. Higher gas prices and market speculation have less of a relationship than could be developed in a one night stand in a Cartagena brothel, but you wouldn’t know it by his bombast.
Is there not one advisor willing to put down their coloring book long enough to explain commodity activity, that Trading Places was only a movie, and that Randolph and Mortimer Duke were fictional characters played by actors? If speculation is the answer to gas price woes then I must not have understood the question. If it is the answer, why don’t we just “speculate” our way out of the housing slump? Hell’s bells, let’s all quit our day jobs and start speculating, for apparently it’s a can’t-miss proposition. Even better, let’s speculate green energy into commercial viability.
Oh, that’s right. That’s already been tried…………………..
Economics are not as difficult to understand as the Prevaricator in Chief would like you to believe, so when he relies upon lies and grand distortions to misrepresent very simple and basic concepts one can only conclude that he is a dunce, or believes that manufacturing canards to scare the bejesus out of everyone is some type of effective leadership ploy that will make people grasp at the cuffs on his pants the way frightened children reach for their mother’s apron strings…………….. provided, of course, the mother stayed at home “to only raise her children” and by liberal social engineering department definition does not know what it’s like to put in a day’s work.
(Maybe THEIR mothers should have stayed home)
The clichéd lemonade stand is a rug that has been placed over the line and beaten one too many times. Besides, we’re going to have to sink lower to reach this infantile level of comprehension and wavelength and start talking about hot dog vendors so as to fathom how grossly the intent of this administration is skewed toward selling lies that abut the border of insanity. I won’t type fast because apparently nobody on the Left reads very quickly. Here goes:
If one owned and operated the only hot dog stand at the local high school stadium, that individual could be assured of selling his or her wares at a handsome profit. If, however, it was agreed that there could now be a different hot dog vendor at every entrance to the park the competition would assuredly make the price of a frankfurter and mustard fall to a more reasonable price and along the way the competition might very well improve service. Ah, the great bête noire of the Left: competition.
For reasons upon which all might speculate but never know for certain, Mr. Obama appears convinced that drilling for more of our own oil and thus increasing world supply while simultaneously lessening dependence on Arab racketeers, the inbred criminals of Mexico, and the bulbous wood tick from Venezuela will not lower the price, notwithstanding the fact that commodity trading is often emotionally driven and demonstrating a resolve to drill might deflate speculative delirium. He also believed adding $5 Trillion in national debt would somehow help the economy. We know he has no background in traditional business, and now it has been ascertained with utter certainty that he and like-minded advisors do not even understand the basic economics of a hot dog operation much less the structure of capitalism, the foundation of which made the United States the world’s greatest country.
His indoctrinated and instinctive solution to curb the perfectly legal practice of buying and selling oil commodity futures is to expand the iron hand of regulation, a parochial suggestion based once again on an ideology that blinds its followers to practical solutions and precludes even the loosest grip on reality, as if all market trading in oil on a worldwide basis will somehow be contained by expanding government in the United States. This not opinion, it is fact, though opinions are a dicey item with the current regime.
Just ask Ted Nugent.
It could be said that Nugent is under the gun, so to speak, for using colorful metaphors that struck a discordant note with a heretofore unknown subsidiary of the Secret Service known euphemistically as the Speech Gestapo. Apparently, if of the “correct” political persuasion it is acceptable to joke about Vice President Cheney’s heart, refer to Laura Ingraham as a “right wing slut”, spout locker room garbage about Michelle Bachman, or spew endless invectives about Governor Palin, Senator Santorum, and their children. If the administration somehow manages to steal the upcoming election you will fear a whisper of dissent to a neighbor in your own back yard by the time we reach 2016.
