Calf Of Gold Or Oil Of Snake? August 22, 2009Posted by lizp4 in Uncategorized.
The people of this country who support this administration have built themselves a golden calf, and they are only now realizing that the glittering bovine is not able to keep a single promise, provide a single meal, create a job, or save a single life.
Realizing we have been gullible and swallowed the spiel of the slickest snake-oil salesman to come down the pike in a long time makes us irritable and impatient with the perpetrator of the ruse, and that makes the town-hall gatherings contentious and cranky. It doesn’t help that the paid thugs of the SEIU in their purple shirts have taken to infiltrating, disrupting, and agitating the gatherings of honest taxpayers who come together to ask legitimate questions of the congressional representatives THEY hired and put into office.
Any employee is familiar with the periodic evaluations his company or agency uses to keep track of its employee’s performance. Congress should be no different, and should not be exempt from the scrutiny of the taxpayers whose votes put them into office. Yet, they acquire an attitude as soon as they sit down at their new desks that says, “I am an exempt elite. I don’t have to pay social security taxes, I don’t have to submit myself to the laws I make for you, and my retirement is a golden rocking chair that is the envy of most of the heads of state in the world. Shame on you for asking me such questions!”
Since the left enjoys nothing so much as class warfare, pitting groups of people against each other in these situations is more fun than a “Family Guy” marathon in terms of enjoyment for the left. Disruption is their stock in trade, and stirring up trouble at the town hall meetings is a piece of cake for seasoned union goons and knee-breaking guys trained in agitation. Every time, these disruptions have nothing to do with the topic at hand, and everything to do with squelching opposition and silencing legitimate questions and attempting to stir up anger at doctors and insurance companies. Big labor has been losing influence and membership for some time. This might be the moment of truth for them, as well. If they can’t pull this together and force the insurance and medical employees into SEIU, they will lose even more, and will lose all the income that would accrue to them from mandatory dues. They have a lot at stake in disrupting the legitimate and Constitutionally-protected town-hall gatherings that have sprung up across the country.
America has reached a deadly and dangerous precipice, and we are teetering on the crumbling brink of the death of liberty. As patriots across the country have contemplated the rise in anti-Constitutional legislation and the brazen implementation of Socialist policies in many segments of American life, it has been a recurring worry that actual revolution would become necessary to prevent the worst from happening. But no one could predict the form any such “uprising” would take, and it may come to pass that such would appear as grassroots gatherings and vocal resistance, such as we now see, events in which everyone can participate.
So, the battle is joined and the armies face each other at town hall meetings. The outcome is still anybody’s guess, but the real will of the people will not go down without a fight. The sinister idol of gold has awakened the “sleeping giant.” But, once aroused, that giant may prove to be a difficult and determined adversary.
