Turkeys on Parade

     Just in time for Thanksgiving, I thought I’d pull together some of the more recent “things you just can’t make up” that would make the turkey on your table seem like a Rhodes Scholar. Here’s a cornucopia of idiocy from those who make the headlines:
     President Obama’s been busy bad-mouthing the American people once again. A couple weeks ago, he spoke to a group of Pacific-rim business leaders and told them that “we’ve been a little lazy” in trying to get foreign investors to come here and do business. Were you using the “royal we”, Mr. President? It seems most of us have to work pretty hard just to keep up after all of your HopenChange. Most of us don’t get to take exotic vacations every other month on someone else’s dime. Incidentally, I’m sure your anti-business policies have nothing to do with turning foreigners off from the prospect of doing business here, since we have the 2nd highest corporate taxes in the world, with only Japan topping us.
     …this happened after he made the big mistake of either forgetting where he was, or maybe just not knowing it to begin with when he was speaking to an audience in Hawaii. He said, “When I meet with world leaders, what’s striking — whether it’s in Europe or here in Asia…”    Uh…you’d think he’d remember he was in his home state, the place where he was born.  I guess he forgot that Hawaii is, in fact, one of the 57 states he spoke of back in the glory days of the 2008 campaign.
     Meanwhile, his friend and former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (Dimwit-CA) has decided that the government should run its own babysitting service. She wants to do to child care what the government has done to health care (OH NO!). She said, “When it comes to “unleashing women” in a way that would boost the economy…this is a missing link.” So, I guess she sees women who decide to have children and raise a family as being some kind of on-going detriment to our economy because they’re chained to these ghastly children. Even more hilarious is that she, a multi-millionaire, claims to know how difficult it is to find quality child care for her children.  She blathered on: “I could never get a babysitter — have five kids in six years and no one wants to come to your house. . . . And everywhere I go, women say the same thing.”   Maybe the problem wasn’t a lack of good caretakers as much as it was a lack of interest in working for her. Nancy, the missing link is between the brains and the hands of the people who keep pushing the button/ pulling the lever to keep you in your position.
     Finally, the Occupy Wherever movement, that once received praise from Nancy Pelosi (“God bless them”) and other Democrats appears to be growing…but not with human participants. It seems lice, fleas, TB, ringworm, scabies (yes, that’s right, scabies!) and a new condition called “Zucotti Lung” are appearing among the occupiers in various cities. The only time I’ve ever heard of scabies was in my sixth grade health class when we learned about diseases that people in Third World nations get. Furthermore, if a movement gets its own contagious disease named after the primary location of the movement, this is not an attractive selling point. I heard one occupier being interviewed tell the reporter that these camps were small samples of what they hoped society would become. God help us! He said that with a straight face, by the way.
     Speaking of God, it’s time to wrap this up by wishing you, wherever you are, a very Happy Thanksgiving and God’s blessings on you and your family, even if you don’t believe in Him. He still believes in you and that’s something to be thankful for in these chaotic times.
