     A person has to fight against the inclination to become tired at these stories.   But what does a person do?   At each turn, Obama lies, constructs, fudges, invents, blames, wiggles, weasels, sneers, slanders, and generally acts like the white-trash that he is.   He snickers at his own low information followers....those poor dolts who line up like some kind of choir behind him and who give him adulation and the backbone that he lacks from the inside out.
     We remember so very well when he spoke in front of the CEO at the Caterpillar plant, declaring that "Right here, we see the recovery happening, because Caterpillar is going to be hiring ten billion, million, quadzillion people to-morrow, due to our stimulus package!!!"   And, of course, the next day, the Caterpillar CEO has to call a press conference to say, "I have no idea who that dumboe  was who was talking about us hiring anybody.  We have no such plans and we are treading very carefully in troubled waters and will be doing so for the foreseeable future."

     Then, at a "Worship Obama Camp Meeting" in Florida, several score zomboe adulators were assembled expressly for  the task of   worshipping Obama.   While El Gringo Viejo now takes a bit of poetic license  within the context of his prose, the following substantially accurate account is included for the OROGs' enlightenment.
     Just before the Altar Call, a woman spoke in the well-practiced voice of a panhandler...that sweet, pained, victimised voice of a person well-schooled in reminding all how much greater her morality and suffering  is than yours because she is destitute, in pain, and hungry....she spake and said, "I'se livin' in my cah,  an all my stuff iz in th' trunk of dat cah.  I'se been tryin' jus' to fine someways tuh gits me a place that's got a kitchin.  I'd do anything jus to has me a place to live in."
      What was astounding is that the woman apparently had just come out of the green room and the make-up staff's attention, because she was "all fixed-up real nice" as is said in Texas.  Her hair was done, make-up well-done and fresh, and something rang out that, if Barney were there, he'd tell Fred, "Fred, I don't like the looks of this".

     But Father Obamaham was thrown off teleprompter only a little...and he listened  to the woman's panhandling routine.   As she finished, Saint Barack lifted his sceptre and deigned, "Somebody get that lady's name...we're gonna help that woman.   George Bush threw her out on the street and we're gonna find her a nice place to live....right away."  A magnificent example of direct democracy and demagoguery all melted down into the same septic sludge at which Marxists are so adept.   The drone-zombies applauded Father Obamaham, and gazed with worshipful wonder upon his person.

    She never did receive her new Obamacastle.  She actually was involved in a permanent barge-in with family.  It was all sham mixed with chutzpah and out-and-out deceit.  In later newspaper articles she seemed a bit disappointed that she had never been awarded her kitchen.  The Obsolete Press forgot about her very quickly.

       But, of course, the days went by...and nothing happened.


Deceit???   Deceit??? Oh! Heaven forbid. 

CNN reports that a woman the president hailed as an Obamacare success story just realized she won't be able to afford Obamacare because it's too expensive:
     "Jessica Sanford was cited by the president as an Obamacare success story at a health care event he had here at the White House in the Rose Garden on October 21," says a reporter for CNN from the White House. "That of course being just last month. The 48-year-old single mom from Washington state purchased what she considered to be affordable health care, life-changing event, she said, on the Washington state health exchange. She decided she was so excited about this news, she wanted to write an e-mail to the president to say that this had really changed her life and that she was thankful for the Afforable Care Act. The president included her e-mail in his remarks to people on hand for the event. Here's a bit of what the president had to say."
The CNN report quotes President Obama as saying, "I recently received a letter from a woman named Jessica Sanford in Washington state. And here's what she wrote, I am a single mom, no child support, self-employed. and I haven't had insurance for 15 years because it's too expensive. I was crying the other day when I signed up, so much stress lifted."

"But days, just really three days after she was mentioned by the president, Jessica Sanford started having problems, she was receiving letters from the Washington state health exchange," reports CNN. "The first letter telling her that tax credit was reduced, therefore, increasing the cost of her health care plan and the, take a look at this, then she received a letter just last week telling her that her tax credit had been taken away all together. Show you another document here, showing what the tax credit worked out to be... zero dollars according to this document that was provided to us by Jessica Sanford. She describes all of this as a roller coaster ride. Now she says she can't afford insurance in Washington state because of the new developments."
Sanford tells CNN that she's embarrassed. "It was a huge disappointment, especially since I had, you know, my story had been shared by the president. I felt like, you know, I just felt really embarrassed that, you know, he quoted my story and then come to find that the Washington health plan finder, the website here in our state, had grossly miscalculated or they're having a problem figuring their tax credits. and so at least for right now, I don't -- I'm not going to be getting insurance," she says.
     We must confess being tired of the Queen for a Day routine.  I know that people are tired.  We know that there is want.  We know that there is stress and that money does not go far enough.    We know that there is worry.  We know that at every corner there are insurmountable problems.  We have lived it, and we are living it.  Even the wealthy live it.  No matter where one finds himself/herself in the sociological class/wealth chart, there is stress.
     What we resent is the notion that a person can decide to foist off his/her perceived wants and needs upon another unseen person.  I buy, you pay.   We breed/ you feed.  And it is done with the alacrity of self-entitlement without concern about what damage the taker is doing to the producer.   It is, simply stated, the notion that "If I have less than you, I am better than you.  If I want more than I have, and you have anything, then I am better than you and I deserve to take what you have".   It is a form of official extortion of the worst sort.....Caesar has legalised the act.
     El Gringo Viejo has tired of that game long, long ago.  Now, however, it is time to destroy entitlements.   There is no money.  Eighteen trillion dollars is a lot of money....you know, like the old adage...."....a trillion here and a trillion there...and pretty soon it adds up to real money."
Now, where did I put my NoDoze and Airwick?   It's time for breakfast and I need a drink.
