OBAMERIKA – PART TWO

In 2010 after the government took over GM, I posted to a previous blog an article regarding what might happen with such a government takeover. The following is a facsimile of that article after making a few tweaks to make it more pertinent to 2014.

In the year 2014, I get a notice in the mail from GM, Government Motors, telling me that it’s time for a new car because my 2006 Chevy Equinox is getting old and the mileage is creeping up. In fact, I’m ordered to come to the Birmingham office of GM on a certain day and a certain time.

On the designated day I pull up to the building and a security guard checks my identification, waves me through, and directs me to an area for SUVs. I pull into a parking area and am met by another uniformed officer who tells me to take my purse and get out of my car. As soon as I get out of the car, a large crane dips down and picks up my vehicle and transports it to an area where it is immediately crushed. Because I had other stuff in my car, get upset; but the uniformed officers tells me that’s too bad. I should have my stuff out of the car before I arrived at GM.

I’m directed to a holding area where I’m told to wait for another Government Motors representative who will assist me with a new car, a car that is more suited for someone like me. I wait for about 2-1/2 hours before my name is called and I’m escorted to a small office where yet another uniformed person tells me to have a seat in his tiny office. First I’m told that I owe Government a $1,000 fine because I chose to drive an evil SUV for eight years. I reluctantly produce a credit card to pay this. I’m then told to go back to the waiting room and wait for someone else to assist me with a new car.

After about forty-five minutes, my name is again called and I’m taken to see yet another GM bureaucrat. I’m told that the government has been studying my driving habits and of course they know that I’m single and live alone. Government Motors has thus concluded that I do need to drive to and from work, a journey of about 25 miles per day. While I used to travel to Cullman, Alabama about once a month to visit my elderly mother, I won’t be doing that anymore because she passed away three years ago. I won’t be traveling to Tuscaloosa, Alabama anymore to attend Alabama football games because the federal government has decided to completely shut down all competitive sports. Competition is an evil thing, and teams such as the University of Alabama football team had to be stopped from beating up on teams that were not as good as they were. This includes almost every other college football team. You also won’t be driving to the beach anymore. We’ve decided those trips are completely unnecessary for folks like you, and the government knows what is best for you.

Finally I’m shown a picture of the car that the government has picked out for me. It’s orange with blue upholstery. I tell them that I hate orange and pairing it with blue is unacceptable. Why can’t I choose the color of my new car? I’m told that I’m a bully. I’ve been known to look down my nose at Auburn University and even intimidate their fans. The Government has watched me. I post things about Auburn that are not nice on forums, and at football games I do the “Rammer Jammer” cheer. I must be punished and therefore, I will be driving an orange and blue car.

Then I’m told that I can choose between having air conditioning or heating. It’s recommended that I choose air conditioning because this is the South and the summers get mighty brutal. So I choose air conditioning and then I’m told that this will cost me an extra $1,000 because I’m from a red state, a state where a majority of the voters did not vote for our current president in the last election. Also, the car is a two-seater because that’s all I really need.

My new government issued vehicle is a hybrid that will go up to thirty miles with an overnight charge. It will also run on gasoline, but I will have to apply to the federal government for permission to purchase gasoline and I will need to apply to purchase gas at least four weeks in advance. This tank of gas will take me about 150 miles.
When I can’t take anymore, I start screaming all sorts of things about the government and this country’s leaders. I start running through the endless halls sweating profusely and I don’t sweat. What’s happening to me, and what has happened to the United States of America where I grew up? And then I wake up all twisted in the bed covers. When I’ve gained some composure, I get out of bed, run to the kitchen, open the door to the garage and see my gorgeous ruby red Chevrolet Equinox with my Crimson Tide tag and decals. I give it a hug and pray to God (I believe I can still do this), asking him to please bless this country and to give me the strength and energy to do as much as I can to return the United States of America to its rightful place as a super power.

OBAMERIKA – PART ONE

There are days when I can’t believe what I’m seeing on the news and what I’m seeing on the Internet. I know that fact checking a lot of these stories results in all or part of the article not being true, but there’s still a lot out there that should concern someone who is well into adulthood and grew up in the United States of America.

According to infowars.com, Obama supporters in San Diego have indicated that they feel that it’s racist not to like Mexican food. After doing a smidgen of research, I determined that Mark Dice, who interviewed people a few weeks ago, asking them if they thought the first amendment, should be repealed, was again at it, interviewing folks and asking them if they thought Speaker of the House, John Boehner, was a racist because he didn’t like Mexican food.

The article states that Mr. Dice invented the narrative the Speaker Boehner had remarked that he didn’t like Mexican food and the current president had asked him to resign. So, we really don’t know of the Speaker likes Mexican food or not and frankly, I don’t care. However, the article goes on to indicate that a number of folks interviewed said that Boehner should resign and that his not liking Mexican food was racist.

This is funny, but at the same time, it’s not funny. Why is Mark Dice doing this? My guess would be that things have really gotten to ridiculous in this country and Mark is trying to illustrate this.

There was another article on wnd.com that said Americans were being labeled as racists for waving the American flag. Now this took place on Monday, May 5, Cinco de Mayo. Cinco de Mayo used to be considered a party day where the independence of Mexico was celebrated and those of us that are not Mexican simply celebrated their party with them. Now it’s getting political and in certain locations, the American flag can’t be on Cinco de Mayo. Why not waive both flags on this day where we all drink Margaritas and eat Mexican food. Have we lost all sense of reason? Can we not have fun anymore?

Apparently not! We wouldn’t want to offend anyone, now would we? There’s a lot wrong with this county and it can be attributed to the liberals/progressives in their quests to promote political correctness. You can’t say this, you can’t say that! Code words, buzz words, etc. A few years ago, one of the greatest players to put on a crimson jersey and play for the University of Alabama, Trent Richardson, was called a beast. He was a beast. He ran roughshod over everyone. He was and is a perfect physical being. I still watch YouTube videos and marvel at him. The sportswriters in Alabama actually had to convince the national media that calling Trent a beast was nothing racist. Thank goodness, he was labeled a beast and not something more specific such as a panther.

This is what we have become under the current president and his administration whose goals are to fundamentally change America. Well, it appears that he has succeeded because I no longer know the country where I was born and raised. If you disagree with the current president, you’re labeled a racist. That was one of the things with which I was concerned when he was first elected in 2008.

I’m sick and tired of political correctness, of liberals/progressives, and all of their name calling. I’m also sick and tired of being accused of hate speech when all I do is question whether certain entitlement programs are functioning efficiently.

Liberals/Progressives/Democrats, I’m sick of you!
