This paragraph is not part of my original blog. That starts with the next paragraph. But the news is the news. Have to deal with it. I read a news article recently that referred to Ted Nugent as "an old rocker well past his sell date". A little harsh, perhaps. But, well.... I've never been a fan. Actually never paid much attention. Could that be the problem? Not enough attention. Lately in his new career as a political activist he seems perfectly willing to quench every fire with gasoline. Ted, SHUT UP! Conservatives have a shot at the White House. Not a perfect shot, but a good shot. The childish and asinine rhetoric that Mr. Nugent just blathered is not helpful. Please, if anyone wants to speak in a conservative manner regarding political issues let it be in a thoughtful and intelligent way. We can do it team. Let's win one for the gipper!!!!
The price of fuel has doubled. It matters not. Food is up at least ten percent. It matters not. The value of the dollar is down. It matters not. As a country we owe more than our Gross Domestic Product. It matters not. Government agencies are spending and regulating out of control. It matters not. Congress has not produced a budget in three years. Obama-care is slated to take over one sixth of the economy. None of this matters a whit.
It doesn't matter because we are a better country. We, as a country, have had a profound religious transformation. We have been led "out of the darkness and into the light". How do I know this? The First Lady of the United States has told me so. And what great religious leader has single-handedly produced this transformation. Why the President of the United States, of course. Who else would be able to raise this country that was so mired in the muck to a greater level of joy and enlightenment.
Some may think that I'm being cynical and sarcastic here. Well, OK, maybe you're right.But, I see a country that has serious problems. One of those problems is that there don't seem to be any serious people in the upper levels of government that are willing to join hands and get us back on track. This administration has pitted poor against rich, old against young, black against white. We may be on the road to perdition but we don't need a would be demi-god in the White House to turn us around. We need a bunch of experienced, serious, adults that are willing to put the country first. This group must be led by a spokesperson with a vision of America that is our vision of America. To be brief, big changes are needed.
