1- ineffective: unable or unwilling to do anything useful
2- unlikely to be successful: lacking the thought or organization necessary to succeed
I had the occasion to engage a young man yesterday who I happen to respect and admire. He sees the world through a Liberal lens so we square off, joust like sparring partners until we’ve worked up a good sweat, and then we hug and go on our merry way. I like to think I’m helping him develop his debating skills…he’s probably wondering what planet I’m from.
But I realized yesterday that he will never understand “my planet” until Bastiat’s “catastrophe” hits home…and then I prayed to God for his lesson to be more effective than painful. When I challenged him on the tragic consequences of a president who is not held to account because of his race, when rodeo clowns are banned for life and the industry subjected to “sensitivity training”, he defended the political correctness of it as a necessary tool to prevent “hatefulness”! Please hold that thought…as much as it hurts.
Our “catastrophe”, pictured above, recently spoke to a gathering of concerned Europeans at a summit in the Hague. He was there to reassure them that America had their back in the face of Putin’s rising aggression and military buildup in Ukraine. Responding to a reporter who reminded him of his Romney debate-dismissal of Putin as a non-threat, Obama stunned the crowd by saying he was more concerned about a nuclear bomb in Manhattan! How reassuring for the Europeans…and New Yorkers! 😦
Netanyahu must be smiling on some level because the rest of the world now knows what the American media has kept from most Americans for so long…Obama is a complete fake. He is nothing more than a manufactured image, completely made up, managed, handled, bundled and coddled by the most dubious cadre of radicals imaginable…since he was a teenager. They (William Ayers) even wrote his books for him! He is the spoiled and feckless brat who has been handed the family business his father slaved to create. He struts the factory floor like God himself, looking down on the workers who fear him…enjoying the largesse he had no hand in while his father was alive. But now the father is dead, and he realizes (as do the workers, customers & the competition) he is nothing! That is the man in the picture above…that is our “catastrophe”! And this is where “catastrophe” has led us;
- The purging of our military.
- The weakening of our defense.
- A weakened NATO.
- Tuff, Fluff & Bluff…
- A general’s warning…
So I would ask the young man who will not hear me until its too late, how is it more “hateful” to call “catastrophe” what it is, than to sit in silence while it destroys the things you love the most?
