The Worst of the State of the Union Address

As far as I can tell, the worst idea in President Obama’s 2014 State of the Union address went like this: "That's what most Americans want — for all of us in this chamber to focus on their lives, their hopes, their aspirations."  Dead wrong!

That is what a population of infants might want, from their parents and nannies.  What most Americans probably want–and I didn’t ask them all, so this is just an educated guess–is for the government–i.e., those in “this chamber”–to do as the Declaration of Independence declared, namely, to diligently and vigilantly secure the protection of their rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of their happiness. Notice, it is not to secure their happiness but to secure their right to its pursuit, which is to say their liberty to go about pursuing the various goals they deem worthwhile to aim for.

That a supposed constitutional scholar would fail to heed the Declaration of Independence, which as Lincoln taught us so clearly, is the instrument for interpreting the U. S. Constitution–especially the Bill of Rights–is scandalous and very scary (at least while he holds the office of president of the United States).

I can only regain some of my optimism about the future of this country if I focus on the fact that not very long from now Obama is going to be gone from The White House.  I cannot imagine anyone being more disloyal to the American political tradition, not Mrs. Clinton, not John Kerry, not Mitt Romney, no one.  The imperial presidency never had anyone so devoted to that corrupt idea as Obama clearly appears to be.

Dear Readers!

You may have noticed that our so-called “semiannual” funding drive, which started sometime in the summer if memory serves, has seamlessly segued into the winter. In fact, the year is almost over! We assure you this is not merely evidence of our chutzpa; rather, it is indicative of the fact that ad income still needs to be supplemented in order to support upkeep of the site. Naturally, the traditional benefits that can be spontaneously triggered by donations to this site remain operative regardless of the season - ranging from a boost to general well-being/happiness (inter alia featuring improved sleep & appetite), children including you in their songs, up to the likely allotment of privileges in the afterlife, etc., etc., but the Christmas season is probably an especially propitious time to cross our palms with silver. A special thank you to all readers who have already chipped in, your generosity is greatly appreciated. Regardless of that, we are honored by everybody's readership and hope we have managed to add a little value to your life.

    The next president will be even worse. They NEVER get better.

  • Calculus:

    When are the majority of people going to finally CLICK that all the politicians do when they open their mouth, especially with the big speeches, is TELL PEOPLE WHAT THEY WANT TO HERE.

    Understand that, and you’ll understand these people are either very mendacious, or very bad for you (unless you’re close to them).
