My mystification grows along with the growth of what I see as the absurdity of leftism. My life has its own level of absurdism (which is fairly high). While I recognize and often do attempt to justify it, I also recognize the sandy, slipping soil upon which my absurdities are grounded. I don’t imagine a political force being applied to impose my absurdities upon you and yours.
It appears to me that leftists have constructed a fantasy world which although beautifully hopeful, is also demonstrable impossible. The chink in the armor of their idea of fairness and equality doctrine is the essential nature of humanity. The universal failure of socialism, even when applied by the most humanitarian of intentions, i.e. religious organizations (Mormons), the founders of our country (Pilgrims), revolutionaries battling agains tyranny (Spartacus), always came down to the failure of the socialist policies put in place at those times. The nature of humanity which includes a fair dose of greed and amplified self-importance throws a wrench into the socialist gearbox. Beautiful intention evolves into a more self-protective form of tyranny, or oligarchy.
Individualism, which includes both freedom and exercising personally recognized and enforced responsibility, evaporates into the atmosphere of statist control.
It was a recognition of this infectious nature of government which inspired political philosophers all the way back to Socrates, who saw democracy (the goal of so many modern politics) and the “politic of mediocrity” which it actually is as America is currenty demonstrating. The irony of enforcing responsibility while admitting freedom was a goal for which the U.S. Constitution was forged to inspire and protect.
“We still suffer from not having a Constitution that guarantees its citizens economic rights” ~Barack Hussein oBama. The Constitution, he explains, is a “charter of negative liberties…(it)… says what the states can’t do to you (and) what the federal government can’t do to you, but doesn’t say what the federal government or state government must do on your behalf.” Thus, apparently, the need to rewrite the Constitution, which in spite of the magnificent wisdom of our pRESIDENT oBama, does indeed say what the federal government must do on our behalf. The difference being that our founders recognized personal responsibility and left that up to the persons. Responsibility is tails on the freedom coin, one can’t be taken away without the other.
The fantasy evolves and the mystery grows.
One often wonders at what to say after having been nicely fucked.
“We do assess that hostile actors gained access to the private commercial email accounts of people with whom secretary Clinton was in regular contact from her personal account” ~FBI director James Comey
“The system is rigged. General Petraeus got in trouble for far less. Very very unfair! As usual, bad judgment” ~Donald Trump
“FBI director said Crooked Hillary compromised our national security. No charges. Wow!” ~Donald Trump
“The lack of intent to harm our country is irrelevant. People never intend the bad things that happen due to gross negligence” ~ Former federal prosecutor Andrew C. McCarthy, who accused Comey of essentially rewriting the law to clear Clinton because the statute does not mention intent.
“Many Dems don’t care if Dems break the law (ends justify means); others are so brainwashed they will never believe Hillary broke the law” ~ David Limbaugh

“Today Comey & Obama’s DOJ made it clear to the American people there’s no accountability no justice & the Clintons live by different rules” Sen. Rand Paul.
“The #FBI recommends no charges & yet there is evidence of potential violations regarding the handling of classified info. Unbelievable” ~former U.S. Ambassador John Bolton
“If Hillary were still Sec State, Pres O would have to fire her. But instead, he travels with her and seeks to promote her. Disgusting.” and “Bottom line: Hillary is reckless, careless and has poor judgement, but she’s not a criminal. Which means she’s likely to be our next POTUS.” former White House Press Secretary Ari Fleischer.
“The FBI decision shows once again how the Clintons and others at the top get to live by a different set of rules from everyone else” ~Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif.
“FBI recommends no further action.. good thing there’s an Atny General who will uphold rule of law. Oh wait she just met with Bill” ~Eric Bolling
“Let’s face it, a republican who faced such allegations would be forced to withdraw candidacy, irrespective of criminal charges” ~Daniel Horowitz
“People never INTEND to act with “gross negligence”. That’s the whole point of the law!” ~Larry O’Connor
“They will do everything in their power to get Clinton into the White House.” and, “So glad Comey was able to take care of Hillary’s awkward little investigation right before Obama campaigned with her” ~Dana Loesch

“Obama DOJ: James Rosen is a criminal co-conspirator but Hillary Clinton should be the next President of the United States. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯” ~Katie Pavlich.
“Hillary’s got her fig leaf. That’s all that matters to the media” and, “Obama on a plane with Hillary as Comey prepares to exonerate her is like Michael Corleone taking confession as Clemenza murders his enemies.” ~Ben Shapiro.
“WP: ‘For a candidate already badly struggling on questions of whether she is honest and trustworthy… Comey’s comments are devastating” ~Majority Whip Sen.John Cornyn.
“Clinton compromised natl security but we can’t think about revoking her security clearance bc she might be President. Fantastic.” and, “Saying HRC didn’t “intend” to compromise natl sec. w server setup is like chugging a fifth of rum & saying you didn’t intend to get drunk” ~Amanda Carpenter
“Hillary may not be POTUS, but she’ll be on the Winter Olympic team for ice skating, no one has successfully skated on more thin ice than her” ~Former Gov. Mike Huckabee, R-Ark.
“The FBI’s decision regarding Clinton’s mishandling of classified emails once again proves that she is DQ’d from being Commander in Chief” Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla.
America is under an adMINISTRATION which is currently under investigation by the Senate, the House, the FBI and numerous private and foreign organizations. Obama is currently under more scrutiny than any previous administration.
The IRS targets Obama’s enemies, Benghazi, Watching the AP, Rosengate, Holder perjury, Fast and Furious, Pigford scandal, GSA, violation of the Hatch Act, Solyndra, Lisa Jackson, Black Panther voter intimidation, War without Congressional approval, Biden’s incredible stupidity, bypassing Congress in various ways, sexual assaults on foreign nationals hired as embassy guards, State department employment of prostitutes while on official trips, nepotism has become an open and widespread practice at the Department of Energy, state dinner security breaches, judicial appointment controversies, drone attacks, Mayward District murders, Guantanimo Bay, Memogate, PRISM, and the list goes on and on…
Since the American media has evolved into a statist propaganda mill, none of the stories are clearly and fully told. The only certainty seen in the most corrupt administration in history, yes even more corrupt than Bill Clinton which is not an easy task, is that nothing will come of it. Barrack Hussein Obama will not be impeached. The statist empire (left AND right) combined with the ironic reverse racism which has done more damage to black America than the KKK, the American Nazi Party and the League of the South combined, provide the insurance that America’s first black President can do no wrong. In fact, as anyone who pays even the most minimal attention to the media reporting of all the above controversies and more, Barrack Hussein Obama is barely aware of their existence, and he hasn’t the foggiest notion as to how any of them came to be. Just like Clinton, he learns of them only after having read about them in the paper. This level of ignorance alone should be cause for impeachment.
Quit trashing President Obama’s accomplishments. He has done more than any other President before him. He has an impressive list of accomplishments, see list below:

How is this hope and change working out for you?

I recently got a message on Facebook which linked to the Forbes site (yep the rich we’re supposed to be hating so much), the headline being, “Who Is the Smallest Government Spender Since Eisenhower? Would You Believe It’s Barack Obama?” The article was spawned (surprise surprise) by Marketwatch, a “Wall Street Journal” entity (another surprise surprise). Wall Street loves the oBuma! Who can believe that the Administration who increased the national debt by a larger amount than all the administrations from Washington through Reagan isn’t the “smallest government spender since Eisenhower”? And to whom would the comparison between the oBuma and Eisenhower not spring to mind?
To people with the ability to think and reason these statements are worse than absurd, but to the members of the Church of the Black Jesus, the trillion dollar a year increase from Bush to the oBuma is explained by inflation. One helllll of an inflation but there ya go!
Admittedly the Bush administration was absurd in many ways, including spending, but the oBuma administration has done NOTHING to cut the Bush spending which makes that spending now theirs as well as the increase of that spending. Over 200 billion increase (annual). So according to the Wall Street boys, INCREASING the absurdly high Bush spending by 200 billion per annum ties the oBuma administration as the cheapest administration yet. Of course much of that spending has gone to Wall Street, Occupy indeed!
There is no mystery in seeing the Demonrats working their asses off to pull the rug out from under the greatest economical giant in history. The mystery for me is the media. The main-stream American media is indeed a propagandia. There is no longer even an attempt to appear honest. Why? What is the benefit in helping to flush America down the toilet?
The media is a huge comedy show! It literally brings me to fits of laughter almost every day! The only comedy more tragic is the American people.
