I had a dream last night in which Barack Obama was wearing a helmet and carrying a lance like the fictional character Don Quixote who had a reputation for attacking make believe foes. The only other clothing Obama
had on was swimming trunks. He was riding a horse that had a
remarkable resemblance to John Kerry
As he moved his lance up and down he was chanting: "we
must stop global warming." He continued to chant as the reading on
the thermometer dropped below freezing and he began turning blue.
He continued chanting "we must stop global warming" as the snow
began to fall. Soon the snow was up to his knees with his
horse unable to move, but he continued to chant "we must stop global
warning" until the snow covered him and his horse.
Obama's comments on non-existent global warming this winter
demonstrates how he is increasingly out of touch with reality.
Obama talked about global warming in a State of the Union speech
delivered on a night when the Gulf Coast was preparing to deal with
freezing temperatures. He urged businesses to switch to
natural gas at a time when natural gas companies were asking for
rate increases because the cold weather was creating a shortage of
Obama wants to spend $1billion dealing with non-existent global
warming at a time when cities are trying to find money to pay the
costs of a snow filled winter.
Obama has continued to push his global warming nonsense through his
Secretary of State John Kerry.
A rational president would have omitted mention of the global
warming issue during a severe cold spell because he would have
recognized that people who were worried about their cars slip
sliding off the road aren't going to believe talk about global
warming. But then a rational president would understand that
the claim that CO2 causes something called global warming is
nonsense. The claim is based on a 19th Century myth that
greenhouses and the atmosphere are heated by trapping infrared
radiation. Physicist R. W. Wood
disproved this claim in 1909.
Law enforcement personnel will tell you that if a financial
opportunity sounds too good to be true, it's probably a scam.
With political scams the reverse is true. Politicians will
make the situation sound much worse than it is. For
example, President George W. Bush insisted we had to invade
Iraq to keep Saddam Hussein from giving Weapons of Mass Destruction
to al Qaeda. The fact is that there is no way a paranoid
dictator like Hussein would have given WMD to an organization that
might want to take his job. The people pushing the global
warming hysteria are claiming all sorts of unbelievable calamities
Obama is also out of touch with reality in the Ukrainian crisis.
His criticism of Russia is questionable He calls the Ukraine a democracy even though the
current change in government control occurred as the result of protests
rather than election. The pro European Union group took
control after members of the president's party were scared
into changing sides or leaving. What is left of the
government may not be sufficient to qualify as a viable national
government of the ethnically divided country.
Crimea is an
autonomous republic within the Ukraine with a mostly Russian
population. Only 28% of the population is ethnic Ukrainian.
Reestablishing a stable government in the Ukraine will be
more difficult if ethnic Russians are forced to be part of a
nation where they don't feel they belong. Thus it would make more
sense for the republic to become part of Russia then remain part of the
Ukraine. Russia is attempting to stabilize an unstable political
situation and prevent a civil war. Obama doesn't understand that
President Vladimir Putin isn't going to destroy the government and then
let the country descend into chaos like Obama did in Libya.
Obama seems oblivious to the possibility that calling attention to
a nation in which protestors forced a president to resign might
encourage his opponents to try to use protests to push him into
resigning. His support for those who used protests to change
the government indicates he considers that approach an acceptable
alternative to elections.
The 25th Amendment to the Constitution who is physically or
mentally unable to handle the duties of President. The
vice president and members of the cabinet can temporarily relieve a
president who has lost touch with reality. The presidency is a
high stress job and high stress can cause mental and physical problems
including high blood pressure and heart disease. Many historians .
believe that the stress of dealing with political scandals killed
President Warren G. Harding.
