The Bamboozler-in-Chief's SOTU Tonight

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Given Mr. Obama's penchant for recycling old speeches and old campaign promises, look for at least one reference to spending money on education, or at least on his fellow travelers in the teacher's union, as an "investment in the future". When he gets to this point, remind yourself that money spent is not always an "investment". Every time someone want to sell some big ticket item to my dear sainted mother, they would couch the expense in terms of "an investment". I remember one time, she told me she thought she was going to "invest" in new drapes. Now, I don't know about you, but of all the drapes, curtains and window coverings I have ever purchased, not one has ever produced a dividend over and above covering the windows I purchased them for.

The US Department of Education is one of the ugliest set of drapes you have ever seen. With a price tag of over 100 Billion dollars a year, hung upon the curtain rod of ever declining and failing test scores, if this were something you had to stare at every day, you would get rid of them in a heartbeat. Possibly burn them.

When Obama stands up once again, to tell you he wants to spend money we do not have, for full employment of his friends at the teachers' union, who obediently kick back a portion of those "investments" as contributions to the Democrat Party, because it is an "investment" in our country's future and necessary to turn the economy around, remember that every dime we spend on education, will take an entire generation to find itself into the workplace. Consider the billions upon billions spent since 1980 on the Department of Education: Did the generation that was supposed to benefit from that "investment" find themselves trained and prepared for the jobs of the late 20th and early 21st. centuries?

Beware! When Obama and his fellow Democrats speak of "investing" in the future, they think along the lines of balancing your risk from Enron with this up and coming new company called "Solyndra".

Caveat emptor.

  1. So the Progressives are up in arms because Ted Nugent will be at the State of the Union address tonight. Well isn’t that just too freaken bad. I didn’t see them so upset when the Smirking Chimp Uncle Joe Bite addressed the blacks when he gave that inspiring speech like a lunatic saying “They gonna put you all back in chains” my gawd, where was the uproar then? They seem to pick and choose what insult is important!
    Well, at least he's telling it like it is and not holding back, and his comments on rappers is basically correct. Ted Nugent nailed it, I agree with everything he said.
    Every day there is attack on traditional American values by these Progressive radicals and the ACLU, these CREEPS are destroying our country.
    Did you see the Grammy Awards last night? Where the Award for Rapping went to the Racist Pigs. Singing on a Nation-wide stage while spewing the word nigger and babbling about drugs, guns, bitches!!
    These untalented, thugs are lucky to have a category at all
    Let me add that the libtards, have spent decades coddling our youth, refusing to hold them to American standards and values, and giving them everything for nothing. It seems as if hard work is a dirty word. And now we are endorsing pot smoking! Hows that! This country needs to get their heads on straight, and they can start by stopping this Socialist agenda of Obama.
    I'm sure that Ted Nugent will have plenty to say after the President's State of the Union speech, as will I. Ted Nugent is a great American. SCREW the Democrats/Liberals/ Progressives! I hope he stands up and yells Wang Dang Sweet Poontang when Obama spews his BS. And when is Obozo going to answer to the questions on the Benghazi whole damned kit and caboodle?
    Just make sure you've got popcorn handy.

    1. Yeah. Uncle Ted should give them something to talk about! I was going to say I missed the rappers on the Grammys, but I didn't miss them at all!

    2. Wang Dang Sweet Poontang...LOL! I haven't heard that one in age! #win

      I was hoping he would break into Free For All and announce that when in doubt, he whips it out, he's got him a rock and roll band, it's a free for all.

      Just sayin'. ;)

    3. Ted could probably school Barry on how to actually shoot skeet, should POTUS ever decide to take a second shot.

  2. If his lips are moving, he's lying and I'm not watching.

    1. I may listen. Sometimes its easier to detect the magnitude of his lies by hearing him say it as opposed to reading it.
