I'm sick of….
By Robert T. Smith
We all have a list. Sometimes the list changes from day-to-day, or hour-to-hour. These are a few that stick out for now.
I'm sick of Karl Rove. Karl "The Architect" still writes newspaper articles and appears to us on our televisions on a regular basis. Certainly the notion that conservatism was not compassionate had to have had its roots in the twisted meanderings of Mr. Rove's architectural construction, "W". Everything from the phrase compassionate conservatism to now has delivered us many unwanted burdens, including Barrack Hussein Obama and a prolonged period of Americans' discontent.
I'm sick of our former president "W". At first, seemingly praiseworthy conduct; who could be so tolerant to withstand the withering verbal and print-media assault on his every idea, decision, and even personal integrity without firing back. Unfortunately, over time, others had to live out his ideas, decisions, and policies, and so were hung out to dry, abandoned due to his inability or unwillingness to defend them. W's pending book is reported to contain his reasoning, explanations and defense for his policies. His moment of explanation came and went, the damage already done, this leaves his pending tome to seem ridiculous in the extreme.
I'm sick of Laura Bush. While she deserves some consideration for her trials here on earth, tending to George, I really don't care to have heard her thoughts on how it was appropriate for our first Dear Leader Marxist president to have addressed my kids in school. She seems like a nice lady, but she apparently hangs out with the wrong kinds of folks and has been influenced by their thinking.
I'm sick of the two headed she-Senator(s) from the northeast, Snowe-Collins. They exist in America's cumulative night-terrors as some bizarre, Greek, two-headed folklore beast, that wriggled onto the rocky shoreline of Maine from the Atlantic Ocean. The twisted amalgamation of quasi-liberal Republicanism from one or the other of these interchangeables can be relied upon to deliver the socialistic goals of the Democrats every time. All the Democrats need is that one Republican vote from Snowe-Collins. The she-beast seems to not realize that without its vote, the weight of the balance would be more evenly distributed and the rest of their political party may actually then have some sway on legislation as it is formed and voted upon.
I'm sick of Bill O'Reilly. His self-aggrandizing view as being the ultimate free-thinker, a self-delusion of purity of thought that is devoid of any influence by political party philosophy has become too distasteful to partake. Listening to his narcissistic pontifications is akin to taking a huge bite from a lemon, overwhelming and face-contorting displeasure to an extreme. Mr. O'Reilly is the political, philosophical equivalent to the New York Times' Paul Krugman's economic-babble. Mr. O'Reilly got lost in himself years ago when he supported then Secretary of State Madeline Albright's offer-you-can't accept to Serbia and President Bubba's subsequent Arkanoid aerial bombardment of a country engaged in what was then the war front with Islamo-terrorists.
I'm sick of the liberal media. They seem to think the grave issues of our day are a Kabuki dance of Democrat versus Republican. Everything is extracted down to which party wins or loses, with insidious motives arbitrarily assigned to any thought not designed to achieve the Socialist-Democrat party's agenda. We have sent teenagers off to fight and die on distant shores for less important issues than the liberal media propagandizes to the public on behalf of their benefactor party. They seem clueless to the notion that our forefathers were willing to kill or to be killed by their opponents over the core human principles that are the roots of our country, that they now chop away at daily. They are shocked into disbelief at TEA Parties conducted by the last of the Americans, people who don't consider themselves Democrat or Republican. Somewhere in their disbelieving minds, they fear these same Americans' core human principles and willingness to act upon their convictions may just still be alive.
Ad infinitum…..for now.
