Notes on a shabby cuff, #1
Let me start off by saying that the out-and-out adoration and worship of the Muslim-in-chief is sickening. Recently, Gwyneth Paltrow, yes, that same person that thinks you can hurt water's feelings by yelling at it, made this startling statement during a fund-raiser for the Democrat party...she praised the president for his recent efforts to ensure that women are paid the same as men who work the same job, telling the audience that the issue is “very important to me as a working mother.” Paltrow makes roughly $16 million per movie. She went on and uttered this, “It would be wonderful if we were able to give this man all of the power that he needs to pass the things that he needs to pass,” she said. Paltrow is apparently upset that the power of the executive branch is balanced by the judicial and legislative branches of the U.S. government, apparently would much rather have a dictator as the chief executive. Last(thank goodness) remark was this, before turning over the floor to the president, Paltrow did her best Beatlemania impersonation, giddily telling the president, “you’re so handsome that I can’t speak properly.” Oh, please...spare us the inanities from this obviously air-headed celebrity.
I like to watch man-in-the-street interviews, but honestly, the answers that people give makes me wonder if they EVER attended any sort of school, and if so, did they skip all the classes on American History, or Civics, or whatever they call some program that teaches Americans about America. College-age and college students were asked about Columbus and Columbus Day...you would cringe hearing the answers from these young people. They didn't know who he was, where he was from, what his ships were, when he discovered America, who financed the exploration. Why are Americans, especially those under 40, so damned stupid? My Dad used to say that if you are ignorant, people will take advantage of you...and nothing is more true-to-life than that statement, especially when you look at who is running the country, how they got there, and the worst thing of all...the generations coming up, who WILL be running a country they know nothing about. Oh wait...we've got one of those already in the White House, and the legions of ignorant people put him there!
It's becoming painfully clear to me that the United States needs to get out of the United Nations. The only thing they are united in, is the attempted destruction of Israel, and the bringing-down of the United States. Put the UN in Haiti...they need the boost to their economy and we can use that beautiful waterfront property in New York for some other, more useful purpose. We will also save a bundle of money by not shoring-up the UN. Wake up America...before it's too late.
