Meditation: Obama's Trashing of America

Let's see: Obama's crowd trashing the National Mall area, Obama's trashing the Cabinet by appointing tax cheats and other lowlifes, and Obama trashing Sarah Palin (by calling her a "pig" -- see the column below.) Was the crowd that left the mess below the same one roaring its approval of Obam's stirring words about the need for environmental protection?

The "shining city up on a hill" turning rapidly into Obama-Land

Obama looks out at middle-America, such as those of us in western Pennsylvania (who voted for McCain-Palin), and he doesn't like what he sees. We're the ones he described as "clinging" to our guns, our religion, and our ethnocentrism. We're the ones Obama's ally, Jack Murtha, described as "racists" and "rednecks." When it comes to people like us, no amount of verbal trashing is seen as excessive.

Talk-show-hostess Tammy Bruce got an inbox-full of hate mail for calling Obama "trash." Tammy has a bad habit of telling the truth -- about the murderous O. J. Simpson, about the woman-hating Democratic Party, and about the "Garbage Man in Chief," Barack Hussein Obama. FDR gave us the New Deal; JFK gave us the New Frontier; apparently, Obama is giving us the New Landfill.

As a guest ("Eric") said this morning on FOX, "You can't pour perfume on a skunk." Yes, the poet was right when he said, "A rose by any other name would smell as sweet," but as the poet didn't observe, "A bag of trash by any other name would smell as foul."

Of course, Obama and his "lovely" wife don't see themselves as trash. Instead, they look in the mirror (a lot) and see "beautiful people," the attractive, the rich, and the powerful. The gaze out at American and see "The Great Unwashed," the people to whom they'll throw scraps in the form of the Stimulus Package. As for the individuals they see as particularly unbeautiful, such as the people in Special Olympics, they're little more than the butt of jokes. The unborn? Cast them out with the rest of the . . . trash.

If Obama continues as he has, "America the Beautiful" will turn into "America, the Kingdom of Garbage," the place you see above in the graphic. Change? Yes. But change we will experience with disbelief . . . and a growing sense of hopelessness.
