Well, happy New Year everyone. Here we are in 2014 and it seems like yesterday we were concerned about Y2K. What shall 2014 bode for our Constitutional Republic?
We have the beginning of Obamacare and the numbers are lagging as far as the goal of 7 million by March 2014. It seems Obamacare is more about expanding Medicaid rolls than anything else, and the quality of care is already being degraded as medical doctors opt out.
The Dow Jones was at an all-time high and there were record numbers for the stock exchange, but do we have a true economy or an artificial one based upon the inane monetary practice of printing money, to the tune of $85 billion per month? Are we setting ourselves up for another bubble to burst? Enjoy the short- term celebration, but we’ll have to pay the piper at some point.
Unemployment benefits ended, but isn’t it ironic that liberal progressives are screaming about extending those benefits — already at 99 weeks, –yet also claim the economy is improving? If the economy is improving, we should see Americans getting back to full-time equivalent employment.
New York City swore in an avowed Marxist/socialist as its new mayor. So it’s not just the federal government but also the largest city in America led by the progressive socialists – it’s unconscionable. When all that Mayor de Blasio has promised goes into implementation, and you decide to leave New York, please leave your liberal politics there. Ask Colorado what happens when liberals migrate.
New York Times writer David Kirkpatrick wants us to believe that a cheap anti-Islam video was the impetus behind the terrorist attack that took the lives of four Americans. He is also trying to sell us a line of bovine excrement and make us believe that unless the terrorists are wearing jerseys that say “Team al-Qaida” they’re just local militia. I can tell you when you’re receiving fire from an AK-47, RPGs, and mortars, no one is sticking their neck out to check the team logo.
Perhaps Mr. Kirpatrick should have all Islamic terrorists print up business cards. Anyway, al-Qaida isn’t just resurgent, they are as engaged as ever — in the Maghreb, Arabian Peninsula, Syria, Iraq, and yes, right in Benghazi. It couldn’t be any more obvious that the liberal progressive media is in full-out damage control — not just for President Obama, but for the future aspirations of Hillary Clinton — anyone believing otherwise has been out in Colorado getting their “Rocky Mountain High” on.
So welcome to 2014 America, the year that will without a doubt determine the legacy that we pass on to our children and grandchildren. Fasten your seat belts.
