Progressive Compassion & Willful Blindness

Transparency & the Rule of Law will be the Touchstones of this Presidency. ~ Barack Obama, January 2009

How many of us pulled the lever for Obama five years ago hoping for a kinder, gentler, more open and inclusive America? How many of us bought into the notion that Obamacare = Compassion? Well Americans just got a front row glimpse at the “compassionate ear” of their fundamental transformers in two very revealing incidents.

1- A bureaucrat with no medical qualifications determines a ten year old child should die? We have given our government the power to decide who lives and who dies?  http://www.politico.com/story/2013/06/sarah-murnaghan-lung-transplant-ruling-kathleen-sebelius-92299.html

2- What happened to Marx’s “useful idiots” after they were no longer useful?   http://now.msn.com/michelle-obama-confronts-heckler-ellen-sturtz-at-fundraiser?ocid=ansnow11

Obama & Holder are well beyond deception now…they have anointed themselves King and Queen…or I guess more of a Prince John and Sheriff of Nottingham, and are moving forward with the outright destruction of America at breathtaking speed:

…we waited for Obama to do a Clinton-shift to center in the wake of 2010…instead he turned into Stalin-reincarnate delivering us to our own wake! In less than 5 years he has transformed us from the #1 world power to the #1 world joke! The vacuum that this has created in the Middle East and other parts of the world is rapidly being filled by powers that devour precious individual liberties & freedoms like finger food.

America…it’s as if you and I were once husband and wife, united together in “holy matrimony” committed to one another. We loved one another for who we were, with all our differences until one day something changed. We began to question and distrust each other as if some unseen agitator had our ear…feeding us daily doses of doubt …until one day we realized that our American Dream had devolved from “for better or for worse” to “willful blindness” as the terms in our relationship. Peace, love and compassion are not made in such ways…slaves are made in such ways.

    I’m back! I was in New York for a few days — my son graduated from high school there.
    I am no fan at all of drones, or politically motivated IRS investigations, or probes of individual journalists, and I hope medical regulations are changed in time for the little girl to get her life-saving transplant. But I don’t stand with the ACLU on the phone dragnet, and here’s a great explanation about why: http://davidsimon.com/we-are-shocked-shocked/

      I have been breathing deeply & thinking even deeper. You don’t stand with the ACLU here because you ARE predisposed to giving your government the benefit of the doubt…as I once WAS. I would have trusted Reagan, Bush & even Clinton to have our best interests. I, and most of us paying attention to the modus operandi of this administration certainly do not trust them in the least bit! I hope you had a nice visit with your son!
