What Is This, Family Guy?

What Is This, Family Guy?

We no longer live in a reality based society and because of this, it
no longer finds itself fettered by the rocks of reality, the sky's the
limit.

Torquemada might as well swing for the fences.

"An entrepreneur flipped on the lights in her tech start-up and did
her part to add to the more than 8 million new jobs our businesses
have created over the past four years." ~ Barack Obama

Eight million jobs when we needed sixteen, mostly part-time,
without benefits in a sea of hard to get, a sea of twelve million
officially unemployed.

Millions more struggle each day, to have a meal and keep the
heat on.

The President is saying the entrepreneur is doing something
wonderful, so don't blame me, if you're not.

But for every entrepreneur flipping a switch, there are millions
more flipping burgers, trying to stay alive.

Because they work part-time the margins are always close,
the utility cut off date is always the first thing they read.

Because they are older, they fill positions once held by teenagers,
making it harder for the young to become established into society.

But what are the youth to become?

What is the central organizing principle of our society? Capitalism?

Can a populace be motivated by wealth, if it becomes more and
more difficult to get?

Can media so fully indoctrinate the message of wasteful
commercialism in the bare face of subsistence poverty?

In his praise of the entrepreneur, the President is praising
the one in a million that lands an NFL or NBA contract.

A non reality made for TV illusion, that millions can all be
entrepreneurs, selling things to each other.

To become a successful entrepreneur you need money and
luck, but mainly money.

You need capital to live on and capital to work from, but
most of all, you need customers with money to spend.

We have a failure to communicate, a broken, defective
operating principle, which neither, motivates nor inspires.

Seniors no longer look towards retirement as golden, they
look with trepidation.

They've watched as the middle class, the home owner, the union
worker and the non-union workers, have all been systematically
thrown under the bus.

They no longer believe in much of anything, but nobody wants to
talk about, many of us having long-term unemployed friends or
relatives.

Families impaired by members unable to find a job at subsistence
wages, you can't move out because you can't afford to or you can't
move out because they can't afford for you to move out.

Or maybe there's a job for you, but you can't afford to move
period.

Because of the length of this malaise, a generation grows up
without knowledge of either prosperity or peace.

How do they set goals with a future so nebulous without any
reasonable hope of success? What are the good American jobs?

What is our plan for the future?

Just drift aimlessly, judging the quality of our lives by
the Dow Jones average?

This American reality was created by Free Trade agreements,
sold to the American people, sealed by the bipartisan promise
of jobs, which never arrived.

The entrepreneurs and big corporations are all in favor,
it will bring jobs.

You see, you can't even read that line without seeing snark.

That's my point, there is reality and then there's what the
President was talking about.

The President talks about Autoworkers, farmers, and rural
doctors, in a pure Timmy & Lassie fantasy.

"A man took the bus home from the graveyard shift, bone
tired but dreaming big dreams for his son."

Most factories aren't on the bus line and even if they were,
the buses probably don't run third shift. A Sophic Hershey's
syrup of hog wash,

"And in tight-knit communities all across America, fathers
and mothers will tuck in their kids, put an arm around their
spouse, remember fallen comrades and give thanks for being
home from a war that after twelve long years is finally coming
to an end." ~ Barack Obama

Oh come on now, we deserve better than that.

What a rip off, I mean, at least in all the dystopic novel scenarios,
the leader is dark and ominous or at least interesting, we get this
cruel reality, Opie Taylor's state of the Mayberry Address.

My Aunt Bea sure does make good pies! What is this, Family Guy?

"It is our unfinished task to restore the basic bargain that built
this country -- the idea that if you work hard and meet your
responsibilities, you can get ahead, no matter where you come
from, no matter what you look like, or who you love." ~ Barack
Obama

This is a recurring theme from Obama, meeting your responsibilities.

You're the one under the gun; you're the one under scrutiny.

Why did you lose your house? Irresponsible.

Why did you lose your job? Irresponsible.

Why are we in the situation we're in? Don't blame us; you're the one
who's irresponsible!

But no matter where you come from (Birds sing, cue music)
no matter what you look like (Cue, ugly kid slide) no matter
where you come from (cue Obama slide) or who you love (cue
Gay couple slide) and our children and our children's children
with amber waves of grain and purple mountains, we can't
forget the purple mountains.(Cue flag) and if you don't get
ahead, there must be something wrong with you.

A blind puppet with an open contempt for the people, a low-grade,
satirical tent preacher, openly hostile towards the crowd.

This wasn't so much of a speech as a performance unsurpassed
in its delicacies, escaping nobly from any construction of goals
or priorities.

When the central organizing principle becomes corrupted and
government so clearly living in a fantasy land, there is no
chance for meaningful reform.

You could no more stop them than you could stop Fred Flintstone
from running off with Betty Rubble, you can only try to hold on
and understand we don't know who is really in charge here.

"Hence I have no mercy or compassion in me for a society that
will crush people, and then penalize them for not being able to
stand up under the weight." ~ Malcolm X
