Boy there is nothing in this world that rivals the pompous, arrogant denial of the high and mighty Progressive Elite! If their facts don’t add up, don’t worry…they just didn’t explain themselves in simple enough terms for you and me to comprehend! In the meantime, you and I…Hell, the entire world will suffer from their delusional ideological-driven agenda.
I begged John D’Ambrosio, President of the Orange County Chamber of Commerce, for two plus years to support the US Chamber’s American Free Enterprise Campaign. Show the small business community…YOUR EXISTING & PROSPECTIVE MEMBERS that you support the principles and values of entrepreneurship and free market capitalism. Stand with and for them! Instead, he chose to stand with and for Statism as he turned a once wonderful organization into a flagship for Obamacare and the Progressive Green Scheme!
At some point, even the most wishful thinking mind has to come up for air! We are on the road to ruin because we have abandoned our bedrock values and principles, and turned to the radical dreams of the radical dreamers instead. How close to the flames do you have to get before you realize that Hell is not your home?

So America waits while he, who extolled OUR need to sacrifice, savours the remaining moments in his $28,000/wk Vineyard Mansion Vacation House before returning to the teleprompter next week. What in the world could he possibly say? What can we expect from an executive responsible for the list of achievements above? Answer- More of the same! Pass the buck, blame the Republicans and Mother Nature…divide, deride & conquer…yum!
Or, I have a novel idea…how about we consider hiring a CERTIFIED MECHANIC this time?? Think about the differences between a guy like Steve Jobs and Barack Obama. What I’ve always noticed about the very best mechanics is that they LOVE the cars they work on…and they possess the talent and skill to keep them running at peak performance! I wouldn’t trust my DAF (lawnmower with a roof on it!) to this mechanic and his road crew. But then again, hindsight is always 20/20 is it not?
At home the values that made us exceptional have been smeared with derision. Individual initiative and individual responsibility—the very engines of our exceptionalism—now carry a stigma of hypocrisy. For centuries America made sure that no amount of initiative would lift minorities and women. So in liberal quarters today—where historical shames are made to define the present—these values are seen as little more than the cynical remnants of a bygone era. Talk of “merit” or “a competition of excellence” in the admissions office of any Ivy League university today, and then stand by for the howls of incredulous laughter. – Shelby Steele
America seems to be facing a pivotal moment: Do we move ahead by advancing or by receding—by reaffirming the values that made us exceptional or by letting go of those values, so that a creeping mediocrity begins to spare us the burdens of greatness? – Shelby Steele
That’s a great question Mr. Steele!
