Oxymorons-R-US

Oxymoron: “Do as we say; not as we do.” If U.S. drone strikes in Pakistan, Yemen, Egypt, Syria, Libya, and elsewhere, are legal under International Law as White House spokesman Jay Carney claims, does that mean other nations recognizing perceived terror threats by the U.S. can legally order drone or other strikes in the U.S. or elsewhere it is present?



Oxymoron: “Only Congress, and not President Obama, can delay or change the ObamaCare individual mandate.” Evidently false because though Obama signed ObamaCare into law, he cannot arbitrarily change its provisions, but he did just that as he gave business a one-year extension to comply with the mandate to provide health insurance or face fines. Under severe pressure due to the crash of the Obama Care signup system, Obama, in violation of his duty to enforce the Affordable Care Act, delayed the individual mandate for ObamaCare enrollment by six weeks, something only Congress is authorized to do.



Oxymoron: “Supreme Court rules on Constitutionality only but is not empowered to legislate.” Chief Justice John Roberts, while ruling on ObamaCare constitutionality, CHANGED the law, ruling the fines to be taxes, illegal on another score in that if the fines were taxes, they did not apply equally to all.



Oxymoron: “Supreme Court decides the year 2000 election of George W. Bush by denying an ongoing recount of Florida votes, in effect electing Bush,” definitely out of the jurisdiction of SCOTUS.



Oxymoron: “Congress passes laws for the populace but exempts itself.” ObamaCare is bad enough for the people but not good enough for the incumbents of both political parties, as Congress once again puts itself above the laws it passes. Tax cheat Rep. Rangel wants it both ways as he claims, “No Question, members of Congress are entitled to ObamaCare subsidies.”



Oxymoron: “The HIPAA Privacy Rule establishes national standards to protect individuals’ medical records and other personal health information and applies to health plans, health care clearinghouses, and those health care providers that conduct certain health care transactions electronically. The Rule gives patients rights over their health information, including rights to examine and obtain a copy of their health records, and to request corrections.” An anonymous source claims there is hidden code on the ObamaCare Website: “No Reasonable Expectation of Privacy.”



Oxymoron: “Democrat Congress members are pushing for a delay in the ObamaCare (ACA) mandate for a year, accepting the same GOP recommendation Dems fiercely fought against.” What a difference a day makes. First they loved it and now they hate it, not on its merits, but because it is getting too close to Mid-Term elections, and incumbents have one goal in common, re-election.



Oxymoron: President Obama continually touts education as a pathway to middle-class jobs despite lack of commensurate jobs. “Go to College; Get an education; Get a job.” But are minimum wage burger-flipping jobs worth the price of enormous college debt?



Vladimir Lenin supposedly said, “The worse, the better,” meaning the worse things got for Russians the better it was for the communists. Former Obama Chief of Staff and now Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel has a different version of the same thing, “Never let a good crisis go to waste” Hillary Clinton notes “The country is careening from crisis to crisis,” situations made to order for opportunistic politicians that operate in power from fear-mongering.



In the same oxymoron vein, President Obama and his bureaucracies, create massive contradictory job-killing rules and regulations, particularly concerning ObamaCare, Keystone XL Pipeline, Education, Commerce, Environment, abortion, contraceptives, gay marriage, freedoms of religion, speech, arms, and now the Military as religion is inhibited and Marines may be forced to wear UNISEX hats.



Overseas, “Obama refers to HIS Military,” as he purges high ranks of those not in lockstep with his unconstitutional agenda. There are more arbitrary dictatorial Executive Orders, and he claims he is doing it FOR the people when the fact is that he is doing it TO the people.



President Obama has grown the welfare nanny state to the point that the Census Bureau reports that recipients of government largess outnumber full-time workers. The stipulation is that Social Security recipients are included in the Entitlement Group; Not True.



Social Security is an annuity purchased by contributions by employer and employee over a worker’s lifetime, and therefore not technically collecting an entitlement as it was earned. Social Security is denigrated as a humongous Ponzi Scheme, which it technically is, as there are now less than two workers to support each retiree, compared to the seven or more there were previously.



Is that the fault of Social Security, or is it the fault that one of the first orders by the Creator in the Bible to “Increase and Multiply,” and once that process was intentionally truncated by all-knowing humans, the Bernie Madoff style pyramid collapse was inevitable. As with everything, the best and brightest modern over-educated morons proved to be America’s own worst enemy.



Obama having botched ObamaCare, jobs, economy, spending, debt, marriage, family, and border protection, so now it is onward and upward, slogans a combination of Starbucks and the Democrat Party, onward and upward to more issues that can be done badly and  incompletely, namely IMMIGRATION. Never mind the lack of budget for the fifth year in a row, and ACA in tatters. There is more damage that can be done; unfortunately.



Obama is onward and upward but not as Midas who turned everything he touched into gold, everything. Midas came to regret his gift, and beseeched for the return to the way it was, and he turned out poorer but happier. Obama’s gift is to turn everything he touches not into gold, but into another boulder around the neck of the sinking America. Question is whether that is accidental or part of the master plan. Either way, America dies.
