Excuse me, Father O'bamaham

    We are lectured by the person who attends two Ivy League universities, yet has no academic record.   He guides us by the calm waters, yet he has written nothing by his own hand.   We are instructed by his experiences as a beset-upon minority group member, yet his main claim to genealogical fame is that he is fairly closely related to Gen. Robert Edward Lee.
    His elder, paternal-line relatives,  in this country only recently arrived, have been treated to a free ride to the tune of 200,000 dollars per year including court costs and public defenders.   These are two illegal-alien blood relatives he chooses to allow to remain in the United States.   He also demands that we pay for their room, board, bingo cards, drugs, liquor, and legal defense teams.
     Since he says he does not know the person very well.....the one  who wrote his book, "Dreams of My Father", we can refresh his memory quickly by pointing out the fact that his "ghoster" skated on charges of murder due to a technicality.   His "ghoster" is proud of the fact that he helped kill innocent people, and has repeatedly said he wishes that he had "done more" in terms of rendering death, destruction, and mayhem.

     Now comes saying a Mr. Cahill, renowned student of the craft and an expert in the field of tracing and tracking "ghosters".    An OROG can reasonably assume that this man would qualify, if such things exist, as a forensic authourship analyst.   He observes:

     "In my career in advertising and publishing, I have reviewed the portfolios of a thousand professional writers, all of them crowded with writing samples, but only a handful of these writers would have been capable of having a written a book as stylish as Dreams. I have also written a book on intellectual fraud, Hoodwinked, and examined any number of bogus biographies that excited the literary left to the point of complicity, Edward Said's and Rigoberta Menchu's prominent among them, Menchu winning a Nobel Prize for hers. Obama's ascent seems to follow a century-old pattern."

     Mr. Cahill is struck by the fact that Obama has nothing to demonstrate any particular literary talent for his time spent hanging around on the hallowed precincts of  Harvard and Columbia...not a snippit.   He suddenly writes a AA minor-league blurb which, like Rigobert's bilge, is full of communist mendaciousness and hatred of things good and orderly.    Because he can take advantage of the  predisposition of the New York Times and its literary critics to practice the bigotry of low expectations, his book is promptly declared the most important thing put in print since Gutenburg's Press.
      The celebration of his life as a campus cocaine dealer, smoking dope in his dormitory room does not really qualify as great literature.   The "ghoster" is the AA minor leaguer who has pitched a shut-out....a good game .... at that level.     Obama, of course, could not even qualify to be a first base coach on a semi-pro team, to carry the analogy further.    He can barely read a teleprompter.   In order  to impart emotion he must be addressing an audience incapable of critical thinking.   He is a carnival shill, begging for an audience of rubes.   He must address an audience of rubes who want something for nothing, who hate America as a nation of the independent and self-reliant, and who hate anybody who has "more".

     Enter then this man, to the National Prayer Breakfast. 
     The president goes before the Congregation with all the sincerity of William Jefferson Blyth, and after stumbling through his preambulatory remarks to show how much better person he is than the rest of the "millionaires and billionaires" he lunks out the motto of the liberation if he is informing the gathering that he is the first one to comply, understand, and inform others of this sacred justification for marxiism:

                    For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required.

     He beams his moral superiority.  The congregants are respectful, if a little bemused by the sophomoric arrogance and the speaker's lack of true understanding of the admonition.   El Gringo Viejo is not a nice person, so he is not bound to be respectful to a pretender.   So, here, it is pointed out that this is an order from Yahweh, Father of Esua....that we should give freely of ourselves of time, money, blood, attention, favours, or whatever is required to attend to the naked, the homeless, the infirmed, the prisoners, the traveller, even unto the lonely and those who are left behind.
     It is difficult for Obama to understand that we must (as in required by force) render unto Caesar what is Caesar's and that we must render that sum at the point of a spear, or in these days, to thugs with guns and badges who work for the IRS or DOJ and who need the money to pay for inflated salaries of people who do literally nothing, and people who receive money whose duty it is to eat, procreate, and demand more while also holding a gun or a knife on us.
      Many of us give beyond that which is extorted by force and cast into the bottomless well of profligacy by "public servants".    Some have but a farthing, others have great mounds of silver and gold.   They give from what is left behind by the tax collector.   And they do the work that tries to correct, in many cases, the damage done by the failed social and economic policies of Caesar.     Mr. Romney, for instance, was forced to pay 3,ooo,000 dollars to the central government, and he gave 3,000,000 more from his income to projects and organisations with which he has an emotional or intellectual connection.    Senator Kerry and Vice-President Biden, for instance gave little or nothing.   Father O'bamaham also gave next to nothing, along with his wife, whose giving is mainly to herself.
     What would this shallow, small little marxist do if he were to hear some real theology, part of the mystery of the Religion and philosophy of Christianity as expressed by  a person upon whom the Mighty Obama does not believe, nor even believes existed.   What if he were to hear this:

Unto those that hath shall be given, and they shall have abundance: but from those that hath not shall be taken away even that which they have.
The Gospel according to Saint Matthew

       Here the Nazarene points out that those who have generousity, faith, and patience as a gift from His Father or through their own discipline, they will have in abundance.   Those who have not and care not to discipline themselves so as to gain such virtues, they will lose even the small amount they might have had.

        The Nazarene was also short with the fool who did not protect his wealth, or who planted upon the rock, or who built upon the sand, or who did not invest wisely his master's five talents, or four talents, or his one talent.    He commended the vintner who tended his vineyards well.   He instructed the farmer to cast his seeds upon fertile soil.   He urged the builder to construct his home upon the rock, and he praised the servants who doubled the master's wealth, while chastising the "stupid" servant who buried the one talent that he had.

     And finally, he pointed out the obvious,
.....And there were some that had indignation within themselves and said, Why was this waste of the ointment (spikenard) made?

      For it might have been sold for more than three hundred pence  (approximately one-year's salary), and have been given to the poor.   And they murmured against her.

      And Jesus said, Let her alone;  Why trouble ye her?   She hath wrought a good work on me.

     For ye have the poor with you always, and whensoever ye will ye may do them good:   But me ye have not always.

     She hath done what she could:   she is come aforehand to anoint my body to the burying.

     Verily I say unto you, Wheresoever this gospel shall be preached throughout the whole world, this also that she hath done shall be spoken of for a memorial of her.

Mark 14: 3 - 9

     Please spare the instruction about how, when, and why we should do this or that for the poor.   You are the least among us to advise the correct path.   We who are sinners, but  yet have catechism and strive to correct our wicked ways and our shortcomings, have a better teacher than you.   Your catechism comes from "Rules for Radicals", a book that was dedicated to the honour of Lucifer.  Some teacher.

'Nuff said.
