A Simple but Serious and Sincere Question for You

OK, setting aside political ideology as best we can for a moment, let me ask you a simple, serious and sincere question:

 

Can you remember a time in American history where we have had as many major stories, scandals, allegations of corruption and coverups hitting the news as quickly, and as for as long a sustained period as we have been experiencing the past 6 – 12 months?

 

I suppose — still trying to stay away from politics — I would then ask whether or not you understand the meaning of “birth pains?”  If you do, then you might understand why I am at peace with all of this while — at the same time — experiencing an overwhelming feeling of remorse for those who do not.

  1. Joe, you know better than I, with this blatant assault; they “know” and believe they have already won this war upon America.

    Those who have been “comfortable, will no longer be, now.

    Will the rest of the “undecideds” awaken to repel subjugation and serfdom?

    Or will the light of Liberty be extinguished swiftly before our very eyes?

  2. Well I just learned that the underpinnings to the birther movement date back to the 1920s KKK.

    I will remember that logic the next time someone tries to expose my true identity. ;)

    • Justin,

      If you think I was referring to the “birthers,” you missed my point entirely. I said I was not being political, so you may want to look elsewhere for the answer. :-)

            • I commented at Mike’s site. Now I shall just have to store this post in my memory box in order to return to his site.

              I knew what you were talking about, Justin. There were subtle bias comments thrown in…… I suppose we need to show sweet Mikey actual footage from the mare’s own mouth to prove that birthers are not the product of the KKK, but actually people that are, um, I don’t know……thinking WTF??

  3. Speaking about ‘birthers’, think about this…if abortion had been legal back in 1960, we wouldn’t have the scourge in the White House we have now, eh. Not that I’m condoning abortion because I’m not, but I’m just sayin’.

  4. Yeah…. 1973. But that guy cared enough for his Country to leave town and give up the Presidency….. I don’t expect the same out of the present version of POTUS no matter how many scandals or allegations of corruption. No honor, no integrity, no way.

    • Hockey, are you so hateful of Obama that you must try to make a hero out of Nixon? Did you go around back then wearing a “FREE SPIRO t-shirt? I’m sure that you have kind thoughts towards Warren Harding as well.
      Nixon left after the judiciary committee approved the articles of impeachment, nothing noble about it.

      • “Hockey, are you so hateful of Obama that you must try to make a hero out of Nixon?”

        Speaking of Nixon, he actually kept his campaign promise. He ended a war for real.

          • “Are you for real? The end of the war was a fiasco, we left mountains of military supplies and weaponry behind. ”

            You seen all the shit left behind in Iraq, Greg? (Yeah, I didn’t think so) And as far as I know, The Vietnam War is in fact … over. No extensions, no victory dances, no drone strikes …. just a clear, and simple end to an otherwise shitty war for those that actually had to fight it,

  5. It’s true, no President has had the amount of muck and slime thrown at him as has this President.. No President has had to endure the stupidity of the right-wing’s spreading of rumors and lies.
    And now, we have a bunch of pathetically sore losers who want to fight the Civil War all over again.
    Just go, fools, you’re unhappy, and we don’t like you; leave!

    • Oh, yeah – never in history has any president had to endure what Obama has had to endure. Bush was never called a drunk, an illegitimate president, a functional illiterate, a deserter, a Nazi, a terrorist, evil, openly wished for his death – even writing books and plays about it, had Desmond Tutu call for him to be tried on international war crimes, called a dunce, called a liar on the House floor, called a liar and a murderer, a gang leader from South Central LA, a torturer and a racist…the press loved him, didn’t they?

      Obama has never had photos published of his daughters the way that the Bush girls were treated, either. They were even lampooned on Saturday Night Live. When there is a Democrat in the White House, we must respect their privacy – when it is a Republican, every frat/sorority party is front page news.

      Liberals never threatened to leave the US if Bush was elected, either did they?

      Grow up.

      Your are an even bigger fool than I gave you credit for.

      • Were the Bush girls compared to dogs, as Limbaugh did with 13-year old Chelsea Clinton? Was Augger in there, calling Laura ugly, as he does with the current 1st lady?
        Utah, you can cry about what one or two fringe types said, but that is not the majority speaking.
        Was Bush called a liar by a congressman while speaking to that august body? Did the Democratic minority leader in 2000 or 2004 ever say that his most important job was to make Bush a one-term President? I never saw a ‘funny’ e-mail of a drowned Laura Bush, but several equally heinous mails concerning Hillary Clinton and Michelle have crossed my inbox.
        Face it, Utah, you are becoming as marginal as Norquist and Trump

    • “It’s true, no President has had the amount of muck and slime thrown at him as has this President.”

      He gets what he is owed. Maybe if he were truly benevolent, we’d all love him as you do.

      Melfamy suffers from the typical Progressive’s affliction of “selective memory,” which is further compounded by the Progressives inability to see or accept history in its true light. Thomas Jefferson and John Adams were every bit as bitter with each other as anything we’ve seen in recent memory, not to mention the character assassination that was done on Bush.

      The real difference here is that the attacks on Obama are based on his policies and corruption.

      • “Progressives inability to see or accept history in its true light”

        Not to mention to constant effort to re-write history as they see fit (Greg is just but one example of).

      • Right! Bush lied us into a needless war, in which his buddies were given no-bid contracts, and allowed to do business with the US government sans oversight. But we just didn’t care for the cut of his jib, keep repeating that lie, one day you might believe it.

        • Sure Greg, and the Civil War was only about slavery, Solyndra money didn’t go the executives, and GM didn’t use bailout money to build plants in Mexico, or expand production in China. Oh, and Paul Ryan kills grandmothers.

          Yeah, have fun with that narrative.

  6. Now Greg, You Munch…. The question was “Can you remember a time in American history where we have had as many major stories, scandals, allegations of corruption and coverups hitting the news as quickly, and as for as long a sustained period as we have been experiencing the past 6 – 12 months?”

    And it was an honest answer…. But you honestly have to remain a sheep to the chosen one and your progressive ideology. It clouds everything you do. That’s fine but you do realize what happens to sheep. 1. Sheep get every last bit of hair shaved off for others to use. Or 2. Get slaughtered so others can enjoy their tasty flesh.

    I’ll be neither, which one will you be…. I think BOTH. Either way the fact that even when a honest answer is placed before you to continue to go to your progressive mind numbed response. Thanks…. at least now I know the world is exactly the same as it was when I laid my head down to sleep last night.
