HOPE and CHANGE

hope and change imageWe all know by now that HOPE AND CHANGE wasn’t meant for the benefit of all of America.   And, it’s really not benefited anybody.  We had a feeling that was the case during the first presidential campaigns in 2008, but even some of us didn’t think it would be this bad.

The Baltimore situation (to name only one) is rather a proof that Hope and Change were lies.

Be Obama as you read this, become half Black, half White, young, supposedly very bright and supposedly charismatic….

WHAT WOULD YOU HAVE DONE TO INSTILL REAL HOPE AND CHANGE IN AMERICA?   WHAT WOULD YOU NOT HAVE DONE?

  1. I would have focused on employment (jobs) like a laser. Not healthcare.
    Engage high visibility experts (not czars) on economic growth and recovery.
    Make regular presentations to the people as to goals, means and progress.
    What those goals and means would not be driven by socialistic pipe dreams or opiates.

    after you comment here, please go see Jerry’s blog; it is ABSOLUTELY HILARIOUS…perfect satire…you will be glad you did.

    Ed….I really like that….how much better that would have been; ; which is why Romney would have been such a better president.
    Imagine Romney making this deal with Iran? 🙂

    (I have a secret about Frances Dee…I’ve always been a tad envious of her because she spent her life married to Joel McRae!!)
    Gad, a black/white movie I haven’t seen? HALLELUJAH!

  4. Lisa says:

    there was never a plan for hope and change. It was just a tactic that communists used to win the hearts and minds of useful idiots. I agree with Ed. Those issues are still important to people yet all we hear from this admins is about being fair and climate change .blah,blah,blah.
    Climate change will make matters worse for people in this country. I don’t get how people ,especially low income people,can support this. It won’t help them at all . It will only add to their cost of living. Everyone is asleep at the wheel.

  5. geeez2014 says:

    Lisa, it was all lies, wasn’t it. Yes, climate change will make matters so far worse. But everything the left does sounds SO beguiling..

    Also, did you see a few of my comments the other day, talking about how i’d met two hispanic guys lately at grocery stores who lamented the rise in the minimum wage? We were complaining about the high price of groceries and they both brought this up and said if the min. wage rises as it might, they won’t be able to buy anything. I could have kissed them both 🙂

    Please note what the group killed was meeting about. I think that’s important to know.

  7. Kid says:

    Well, first off, no offense but I’d never say Hope and Change. The word Hope has no business in the Executive Branch of Government. I would issue statements detailing the plan of action where those plans are not confidential.

    I’d certainly start with Ed’s plan. I’d announce a big tax decrease based on downsizing the federal government by at least the 800,000 non-essential federal workers who sit around looking at porn all day. Then we’d slice federal departments, and work to remove federal power over states in as many areas as possible before someone assassinates me.

    And Lisa is correct also, phrases like hope and change are used by the Democrats so that their voting base of useful idiots fill in the blanks for themselves convincing themselves obama promised them xyz. Then they go vote democrat and go to sleep with visions of sugar plums dancing in their little heads. I doubt even now, many of them have any idea the damage done to them.

  8. geeez2014 says:

    Kid, I’m not offended…this HOPE and CHANGE BS wasn’t my idea 🙂 Just playing off O’s promises ..as you say, that are so BEGUILING to our sugar plum fairy-dancin’ Democrats.

    I love your ideas……wasn’t it exactly 800,000 non essentials who didn’t work through a gov’t shut down and everyone realized they weren’t missed…but then were back on the payroll? (Probably got back pay, too!!0

    I nominate YOU for PRESIDENT! (If I can be VP, Ed can be Sec of State and Lisa can be your Number 2 advisor…after ME, of course!!!)

  9. Kid says:

    Yes, and they got back pay. You, Ed, and Lisa can have any position you’d like, though having you and Lisa in the oval office most days sure sounds tempting.

  10. Kid says:

    As advisors of course.

  11. Mal says:

    Right on, Kid. Like Reagan’s famous quote “The most feared words are I’m from the Gov’t. and I’m here to help.” Government doesn’t make money, it only spends money. Why doesn’t everyone understand that?

  12. bocopro says:

    Well, to realize my declared intent to improve race relations in America, I would have immediately issued the following EOs:

    ban BET, MTV, and rap “music.”
    execute Jeremiah Wright
    require racial balance in the NBA to reflect national demographics
    execute Al Sharpton
    ban Islam from all states, territories, and districts of the US
    execute Louis Farrakhan
    abolish the Congressional Black Caucus
    banish Sheila Jackson Lee
    suspend voting rights for everyone on Food Stamps, Welfare, and unemployment
    flog Elijah Cummings

    Next, to demonstrate my commitment to making America great again, I would have immediately eradicated Pyongyang, Tehran, Damascus, Mecca, Islamabad, Cairo, and Kabul.

    To stabilize the economy, I would have cancelled the national debt and begun massive drilling and shipping of domestic oil and natural gas to collapse OPEC and further destroy the sluggish Russian economy.

    To repair the immigration situation, I would have demanded that all existing immigration laws be enforced strictly and stringently, specifically that no person with communicable diseases or without demonstrable skills to make him non-dependent upon society be permitted entry under any circumstances. Violation of that law would automatically warrant the death penalty, as would illegal return to US jurisdiction after once having been deported.

    Next I would have told China to “WATCH IT!” and begun regular surveillance flights over the South China Sea. Any challenging aircraft or missiles would be destroyed, and any loss of US warships or military aircraft would bring instant massive retaliation similar to what happened to Iran and North Korea earlier.

    And finally I would have eliminated numerous federal agencies which have outlived their usefulness or perform duplicate duties assigned to other agencies. Among the first would be the EPA, NEA, and the DoE (Department of Energy).

    For starters, anyway.

  13. Kid says:

    Thanks Mal. I guess Most of them don’t think it’s their money. Especially when you get more of a refund than you paid in.

    Let me add immigration to my plan. I would make it illegal to hire illegal aliens or provide free services to them. Give them 30 days notice. The illegals will deport themselves.

  14. John M. Berger says:

    Not to be redundant (everybody has been SPOT ON) but B.O.’s sloganeering about “HOPE and CHANGE” was nothing more than a play on the gullibility of a mindless preponderance of voters. And it worked! Each “useful idiot”, supporting him, had his/her own idea of “change” and were stupid enough to think that [he] had their own individual objective(s) in mind. His reelection only reinforced the often repeated example of INSANITY! I blame the mess that we are in on those who elected him as much or more than just him. I guess we will see if they have learned anything. come the next Presidential election but I’m not holding my breath.

  15. geeez2014 says:

    Kid, of course!

    Mal…Americans are happy as long as the gov’t spends money on THEM. I don’t think many have figured out that’s THEIR MONEY to start with!!!?

    bocopro; for ‘starters,’ huh? You’d be busy!! By the way…have you ever heard of the White Congressional Caucus? 🙂

    JMB; yes, it sounded SO WONDERFUL to a lot of folks, didn’t it?
    I blame a LOT of the mess we’re in on Conservatives (many Christian Cons) who didn’t vote for Romney because he was:

    A Mormon
    Not CONSERVATIVE ENOUGH
    Didn’t have a chance, so why vote?

  16. geeez2014 says:

    and, JMB, by the way…I’m starting to hear this again. “Nobody’s CONSERVATIVE ENOUGH”..Apparently, there are Cons who can’t pick ONE out of a field of 15 good(ish) people they think are better than HILLARY!!!! and we slam Libs?

  17. John M. Berger says:

    Z,
    Yes, what you say about Romney is so true and a travesty. Those of whom you speak aren’t much better than those who voted for the FRAUD! Obviously, they supported B.O. by default. What, if anything, were they thinking?

  18. Sparky says:

    I’ll be so thankful when this train wreck is out of office! I call him the Dope and Mange “president” because one would have to be on dope to vote for him. Also, he is the mange on America’s head.

  19. geeez2014 says:

    Sparky “Dope and Mange”..very clever! And he is SO worthy of that!

    JMB; They absolutely supported O by default……..I warned about it before the election and got screamed down; even lost a good blogger friend over it. He’s back commenting, but NOT HERE! I’m JUST not CONSERVATIVE ENOUGH for HIM! 🙂

  20. John M. Berger says:

    “even lost a good blogger friend over it………………..commenting but NOT HERE!”
    Yes and I know who he is. I’ve been wondering if [he] will make a repeat performance? I hope that he reads today’s post, here.

  21. geeez2014 says:

    JMB…I’d be surprised if it’s who you think. Unless the person you think you know only started commenting about a month ago after about 4 years?

  22. bunkerville says:

    Oh we had change all right. Beyond our wildest dreams. We need a white knight to ride in, so far nothing on the horizon. But I will keep looking and praying.

  23. Lisa says:

    Z yes I remember your comments about the minimum wage with the hispanic guys.
    I think all the commentors here would make a great administration

    See Howard Zinn’s A People’s History of the United States. Therein, Zinn advocated fundamental transformation. According to Zinn, America has done so many evil things and must pay by being drastically changed.

    Obama is a Zinn-ite on steroids. And since Zinn’s book was published in 1980, almost all Americans have been exposed to the “concepts” presented in that book, which is now the model for Social Studies courses from middle school through graduate level. Explore Zinn Education Project to see what I mean.

  25. I have a clerk that works for me. Very pleasant young black woman.
    Smart as a whip.
    Followed my ad campaign.
    Wanted to hear my radio appearance form Saturday so I played it in the office.
    Got to my criticism of Obama (and not just mine).
    I stopped the recording and asked if she was offended.
    She said no.
    Then we got to the Planned Parenthood part.
    She was aghast.
    Had no idea.
    I’ve got a convert.

  26. have you seen this?

  27. Imp says:

    Demi-cans…Repub-a-crats…what’s the difference?

  28. Kid says:

    IMP, Exactly.

    ED, Dang, don’t tell them about that special house all we white crackers go to and put that special knock on the door every Friday and then the $100 bills come flying out at us thru the mail slot. Please don’t tell em about that.

  29. Imp says:

    One good Marine….One brave Marine…just one is all we need. The flag at the WH has not been lowered for those Marines that were assassinated by that mudslime scum…..again. The “potus” congratulates the mutts on the end of Ramadan….the flies off again to raise bucks….ya gotta want to spit on this guys shoes.

  30. Kid says:

    IMP “ya gotta want to spit on this guys shoes.”

    Or something !

  31. geeez2014 says:

    “if it wasn’t for YOU guys, we wouldn’t HAVE all this” as she gestures around where they’re standing. I LOVE THAT BLACK COUPLE!

    What a video…I thought it was serious for most of it………and, as he says, the “MORONS” who buy this stuff..?? WOW.
    Thanks Ed!! And GOOD ON YOU for the CONVERT!

    Kid and Imp; I’m with you on disappointment with the Republicans and I’m hoping we don’t carry this into next year and turn more and more R’s off voting like some R’s did in 2008 ..Romney wasn’t CONSERVATIVE ENOUGH, and look what we got..
    I have real worries about the anti-Rhinos amongst Republicans…I’m WITH THEM, but I’m going to play it DOWN here at geeeZ.

    AOW: Zinn….I didn’t know his books are infiltrating young children, too…..infiltrate/indoctrinate; welcome to the NEW AMERICA

  32. Imp says:

    Do you believe that this DOD…full of sissified, genetically confused, play admirals and generals….advising that Marines ditch their freaking uniforms? Every Marine ought to resign NOW…. we shouldn’t be punishing Marines….when we should be locking up all Muslims….I’ve said it before…if you want them to turn on their terrorist sycophants cultists…make life miserable for all of them. They’ll squeal..they’ll scream…..they’ll holler…..but what else is new. Time to start cracking down on these mosques…or terrorist recruiting centers. And time to start revoking visas and a complete moratorium on muslim immigration. Before there’s some serious revolt in this country.

  33. Before there’s some serious revolt z this country.
    I up for it.

    And yes, I loved that black couple and her comment.

  34. Imp says:

    Obama has KILLED American pride, honor and the American Dream !

  35. Kid says:

    IMP, Or the people that voted for him.

  36. Imp says:

    Want to see how McPain treats Vets?

    At a 1991 hearing, “McCain stunned everyone when he rushed to the
    witness table and HUGGED North Vietnamese, Col. Bui Tin (responsible for
    POW deaths and torture).

    McCain isn’t a hero.

  37. geeez2014 says:

    Imp….I watched McCain freak out; I don’t know the subject of the dispute, do you?
    And WHY would he HUG a torturer/murderer after he’d himself been tortured??

    Kid and Imp: I couldn’t agree with you more on your comments about what Obama’s killed.

    I just watched a 3 hour old movie called SINCE YOU WENT AWAY…I’ve seen it probably 10 times, maybe more over the years (BIG old movie fan here)…the PATRIOTISM in that film is astonishing. David Selznick produced it because he felt badly that he couldn’t fight; he had health problems, etc., SO, he decided that he could help America’s war effort by making this wonderful, patriotic film of a family whose dad goes to war….
    You should hear the things said, the way they stand up to an unpatriotic woman, how they don’t mind sacrificing the foods they used to get, they open their home to bigshot Government bachelor (Monty Woolly) yp bring in a bit more money (Dad was a well paid ad agency exec but the income isn’t coming in now), how they do SO much for America. At one point, a foreign woman tells the star, Claudette Colbert, that “YOU are what I pictured America would be like!”…SO TOUCHING.
    At the end, Daddy’s coming home and it’s Christmas Eve and the music is O Come, All Ye Faithful…and then there’s a text on the screen about how those who believe in God will prosper (I paraphrase)
    I’ve seen this that many times and still had tears rolling down my cheeks…Maybe more tears than the first time I saw it, at probably 10 years old…… because NOW I see it as “WHAT HAPPENED TO OUR COUNTRY? HOW DID WE GO FROM THAT TO THIS?”

    How did we come to allow others to tell US what OUR CULTURE should be..? How did we allow leftwingers to scold Christians and Conservatives for tiny little missteps when most of what Christianity and Conservatism does and means is SO GOOD?
    UGH.

    What a film………..those were the days. I’m frankly surprised how they still can show it.

  38. John M. Berger says:

    “JMB…I’d be surprised if it’s who you think. Unless the person you think you know only started commenting about a month ago after about 4 years?”

    Well, I don’t know but certainly one who completely fits the description, on a popular site that [we] go to, has emerged and he hasn’t been heard of since the last election until very lately. Anyway the person that I have in mind fits the stereotype that you refer to. If he isn’t the one he still fits.

  39. Imp says:

    @Z..”And WHY would he HUG a torturer/murderer after he’d himself been tortured?”

    There’s lots of info on McLame that he received very preferential treatment from the NVA, due to
    his fathers position as an Admiral in the Pacific Fleet. Matter of fact…some accounts say that the NVA nicknamed him “Song Bird”. Due to his willingness to make about 30 audio recordings used as propaganda. He refuses to release his DD214 ( just like Kerry ) on his military record. Factually, what we know is he was a the dead bottom of his grad class…and that he crashed 5 aircraft….4 that they’re positive of. Then there’s his actions while on the USS Forrestal in 1967… where 134 sailors were killed and 161 seriously injured… cause his jet dropped a live missile on the deck. He may have been a “hero” then…but he has been one lousy, rotten Senator. Keating 5? Gang of 8???

  40. Imp says:

    I’d give the job to this Marine….Sgt. Dakota Meyer…a living breathing hero and MOH recipient.

  41. geeez2014 says:

    JMB….I thought you meant FT, and that’s not it. You might be right on the other and that’s all I’ll say on it 🙂 Good sleuthing.

  42. Mal says:

    Z, “many of those who receive from the gov’t haven’t figured out it was their money to begin with”.
    They know that, but most that receive aren’t contributing. The contributors are those who work. The contributors don’t get squat. LIke the late Margaret Thatcher said “The problem with Socialism is you eventually run out of other people’s money.”
