Humans are at the top of the animal world in that people are endowed with superior brainpower, a gift that when abused creates problems.
Going back to the beginning as narrated in Genesis, the very first book of the Bible, the first human couple in recorded history was given one single command, not to eat of the Tree Of Life. Enter the Great Deceiver with the first recorded lie, that if you eat the fruit of this tree. “You will be like God, knowing good and evil.”
The first recorded half-truth, discernment between good and evil, proved regrettably true, but being like God? That aspiration is what did Lucifer in, resulting in his expulsion from Heaven that is ultimately the presence of God. Lucifer was the brightest of angels, so bright he considered himself equal to God, but his rebellion resulted in his new characterization as Satan.
Disobedience of the singular admonition of God resulted in banishment from Paradise for Adam and Eve, who would now know death, but meanwhile, would have to earn food by the sweat of their brow, and so was born the first job, not exactly a labor of love.
Unprecedented that Obama may claim to be, he is precedented, because the Bible contains ultimate truths, one of which states, “There is nothing new under the sun.” Giving the devil his due, President Obama did inherit a few not insignificant messes, the unfortunate Bush wars in Afghanistan and Iraq that complicated the economy, costing $6 trillion of the nearly $17 trillion National Debt.
Presidential and political candidates claim ability to fix problems left by predecessors, but into the fifth year of his Presidency, Obama succeeded only in exacerbating problems with new unfunded spending, job and economic stagnation, more National Debt, and more military and political intrusions into foreign countries. Obama continues old Bush wars while involving America in new wars, terror, violence, and illegal use of drones in sovereign non-combatant countries that kill innocent men, women, and children, along with occasional al Qaeda members.
Bush promised to track down and get mastermind Osama bin Laden, perpetrator of the infamous 9/11/2001 attacks that destroyed the NY Twin Towers that killed three thousand innocent Americans. Obama finished the job, getting bin Laden but enraging Pakistan. Bush Wars are responsible for more than one million total deaths along with massive destruction of cities and infrastructure.
“Turn the other cheek” is not characteristic of bullies, which retribution is more expensive in blood and money as proven by the historic Hatfield-McCoy feud lasting nearly thirty years from 1863 to 1891, over ownership of a pig. America is now into the twelfth year of unsatisfying revenge with no end in sight, and for what?
American jobs are the domain of President Obama, Military Industrial Complex that represents the only winners in war, AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka who considers every job to fund his union treasury, National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) that puts a wet blanket on job creators, EPA that issues a hundred thousand rules and regulations that kill job creation, and freeloader Environmentalists with major assists from the American Civil Liberties Union.
The ACLU is funded by un-American types including the Ford Foundation, George Soros, Carnegie Corp, Rockefeller Foundation, all indicative of the intent of the ACLU, which prefers welfare over jobs. Those, along with the Bill Gates Foundation co-funded with $billions of his and Warren Buffett money, prove many Foundations provide cover for anti-American, anti-social, anti-family agendas, while abusing tax loopholes, but which contribute precious little to real charity or job creation.
Obama thrives on “All talk all the time,” boasting of creating some seven million new jobs with emphasis from his teleprompter, but the Great Deceiver ignores the number of jobs lost, and the near 40% of the labor force that stopped searching for non-existent jobs. Official unemployment rates continue to fall under the watch of Obama as figures are contrived to reach desired results.
As an example of intentional job blocking, activists continue pressure on Obama block oil exploration and to nix the Keystone XL Pipeline, which together with the trickledown effect, could create up to two million good-paying, tax-paying jobs that would make a major dent in the cost of welfare. Liberal Progressives prefer that working taxpayers pay welfare costs of the proverbial 47% that do not pay income taxes, half of whom do not pay payroll taxes. If not for welfare, most environmentalists would have to get jobs they already killed.
Welfare was tried by the original Christians who pooled their money and assets for support of all as needed, but the welfare system failed as St. Paul the Apostle proclaimed, “Those who will not work, will not eat.” Too many Americans choose high-paying welfare over relatively low-paying jobs.
Job-Killer-In-Chief Obama, EPA, NLRB, and Trumpka are supporters of environmentalists bent on saving the environment while destroying people and families to create disaster for America that is now spread so thin around the globe for no winnable purpose but destruction of the Jewel of the Western World. What will Liberal Progressives do then; lock the barn door after the horses were stolen?
