If You Can’t….Don’t

01 Jan • The multiple intensification of excitation from weasels, kisses, and touches, in general, contributes to the increase of libido, provided that there is sexual stimulation. • Extension of orgasm and sexual intercourse in general.
As we begin a new year it is customary to resolve to accomplish certain tasks.  I’m usually not into this custom as I know the keeping of such usually lasts only a few weeks or months at the most.  However, nothing ventured, nothing gained.

I find myself dumbfounded, distressed, dismayed and even a bit depressed by the ill thought out policies of our president, Mr. Obama.  Whether or not it is his aim to drag our great country through the mud, that is in fact what he is doing.

I guess it is understandable how a background such as his could lead one to detest what America stands for.  I can see how he might feel that way, but I can not for the life of me understand why he wants to lead this nation.  That is unless he wants to transform the United State into a second rate, nay even a third rate country.  If indeed that is his aim he is succeeding.

He had such promise when he began his presidency.  We, as a nation could feel proud that he, a black man became president.  It seemed to prove that we had moved away from wounds fomented at our country’s beginning.  When he said he was going to transform this country I felt he meant truly transport us into a post racial period.  One like Martin Luther King envisioned.  One where a man or woman would be judged by the content of their character, not the color of their skin.  He was poised to put political bickering aside and unite us into the melting pot that made us so strong.  He promised to put country before political party.  In spite of a lack of real world experience his message was so promising that the country fell in behind him, dreaming of a great leader.

That image was shattered within days of being sworn in.  One might wonder if he took the oath of office at all seriously.  His actions crushed each promise one by one.  It soon became clear that he wanted to relegate us to the European model.  Perhaps not truly socialistic, but darn close to it.

Each step he took drug us down into a pit of economic despair through overregulation and uncontrolled spending.  And I found, more and more that I was being sucked down right along with it.  At first I was focused on his policies.  Those I certainly didn’t like. Then as time went by I saw those policies morph into him, the man.  I finally realized that I was beginning to not like the man.

This shift of dislike from his policies to him the man was disturbing to me.  I did not like what was happening.  But happening it was.  As I pondered what was going on, I was reminded of something my grandmother had instilled in my belief system.  Repeatedly she would say: “If you can’t say something good about someone, you shouldn’t say anything at all about them.”

I’ve tried to live by that standard, but obviously I’ve gone astray from time to time.  It seems time to resolve that in the case of President Obama I should reconstitute this belief and put it to work.

So as the new year begins, I resolve to not say anything about President Obama unless it is something good about him.  That is at least in this blog.

So let me start now.  President Obama
