Wow! How long have I been waiting to use that phrase – “Death by a million little pricks.” Allow me a moment’s joy – ahhhhh, but were it only a million the 310 million strong American body politic would brush it aside, but it’s way more than a million little pricks. One can hardly swing a dead cat over their head without striking one of the little pricks bleating and moaning the miseries of it all . . . woe is them . . . .
I finally struck upon why progressives continue with their devil-may-care antics. They denigrate the opposition, call us “Tea baggers, racists” and the like. They claim the near 2 million strong DC Tea Party was 60K. They play chin music that anyone who disagrees is ignorant. They pretend they are deaf too when we screamed at the Congress not to pass Obamacare.
All their transgressions against the vocal and vast majorities are seemingly based upon the progressive inability to read and understand the Bell curve. For this demonstration, the top of the curve represents the sheer volume of people who have never before protested anything. You’ve seen a bell curve before, right? Looks like a “bell,” hence the name, or did Alexander Graham Bell think it up????
Clearly the curve represents that at the bottom there is always a cadre of the unhappy who will protest anything – Tuesday mornings for example. Like Marlon Brando answered when the was asked what he was rebelling against, “What ya got?” As the line moves to the right it begins to ascend vertically, gently at first. I would fairly estimate that gentle upward slope is political dissent in its normal state. The out-of-power party and its usual level of dissenting chatter. This is America so that’s not only normal but in fact as it should be.

This is the Status Quo
According to a new report by the Office of Government Ethics, two dozen of President Obama’s political appointees worked as registered lobbyists during the two years prior to joining the administration, and 22 appointees received waivers that allowed them to participate in matters in which their former employers or clients had an interest. This is what Obama calls the status quo. Just another bold-faced lie Obama has been telling since he entered office.
The USA Today reports:
Two dozen employees out of nearly 2,900 high-level political appointees worked as registered lobbyists during the two years prior to joining President Obama’s administration, a report by the federal Office of Government Ethics finds. The report is the first in what will be an annual assessment by the agency on compliance with ethics rules Obama imposed during the first week of his administration in January 2009.
I’m just shocked. It’s shocking to see a man who promised to change the way things work in Washington continue to use the thing he pretended to hate…the status quo.
In addition, 22 appointees, including those with no lobbying history, received waivers that allowed them to participate in matters in which their former employers or clients had an interest. They included Lynn, a former lobbyist for defense contractor Raytheon, and John Brennan, a top counterterrorism official in the White House. Brennan’s waiver allowed him to lead the administration’s intelligence review after the failed Christmas Day bombing of a Northwest flight to Detroit. Brennan had served as CEO of a private firm that helped the government develop terrorism watch lists.
As this report shows, Obama loves the special interest groups. Who was his #1 visitor to the White House in 2009? As Obama enjoys saying…’Let me be clear’…it was Andy Stern…President of SEIU. Obama loves his unions and has rewarded them greatly over the past 15 months.
Not much change just a lot of the same. The bold lies are simply amazing and continue to add to the pile of stench. Obama is only making the pile higher.
