News from the past week or so has been so absurd and maddening that, like Glenn Beck, I have almost seen the proverbial blood shoot out of my eyes. Probably one of the last items causing such anger was a story about King Obama having his dog airlifted to Martha's Vineyard on an MV-22 Osprey tilt rotor aircraft. The aircraft is designed for military operations, and costs $11,000 per hour to fly, according to the Government Accountability Office. To be fair, a few Secret Service agents rode along to protect the king's dog and to carry bags of basketballs. Bags of basketballs?!

Our president just told America that there is not enough money to cover needed health care for our military personnel, but there is enough to fly his dog to the Vineyard. Our president knows that millions of American citizens are either unemployed or underemployed, and are subsequently scrimping just to survive. But he thumbs his nose at these folks, and those who defend our nation, and takes yet another expensive vacation, to yet another high-rent destination that most Americans will never be able to afford visiting. And who is paying for all of this? You guessed it – the same hard-working Americans who are simply trying to survive under the reign of the megalomaniac-in-chief.

Am I jealous that this president goes to such places for vacation? Nope. I would not go to Martha's Vineyard if you paid me. It simply angers me, and should anger all Americans that Obama goes to such exclusive places on our dime. And not just this trip, but all the others he and his wife take. One has to admit that the Obamas certainly have a taste for the finer things in life, at least when someone else is paying. Perhaps he is trying to catch-up with Bill Clinton who was once called the most traveled president. The Clintons also knew how to spend taxpayer money when it benefited them.

What makes me want to go "hmmm" is why our devout socialist Obama wants to hang-out at such elitist hot spots like the Martha's Vineyard. He portrays himself as a messiah for the downtrodden. (Make me puke) He seems to resent white people, even though he is half-white. He apparently hates businesses, large and small, because his policies are destroying them. And he despises rich people who make too much money, and actually choose to spend it any way they please. And yet, in his downtime, he chooses to rub elbows with a bunch of elitist, rich, successful, white men. He preaches against capitalism, but sure wants to share the wealth generated from said capitalism. Remember when he told Joe the Plumber that "when you spread the wealth around, it's good for everybody." Obama just wants to make sure he gets his part of that wealth when it is spread!

And members of the black community continue to march behind Pied Piper Obama, believing he actually feels their pain and is doing something about it. Puh-leeze! Folks, the real reason Obama and his leftist/commie/socialist/progressive minions give handouts to blacks is to keep them on the plantation. But the plantation now includes other minorities, and a growing number of whites. The underlying principle is that if we are beholden to our government master, they can control us. When we rely on Daddy Government for our every need, our survival instincts are forgotten since there is no need for them. We begin to accept all cockamamie drivel our political "mastas" spew from their mouths, because we now view them as our hope for the future. But that future is further enslavement, not freedom.

Back to Obama's vacation choices...Has anyone wondered why he didn't go "home" to Chicago for this latest vacation? Maybe it is because of all the violence there. Remember, his only real job qualifying him for political leadership (choke) was as a community organizer. He has been hailed as one who really, really cares for the downtrodden – you know, his fellow black citizens and other common folks. Oops...I just remembered that his friends in Chicago were not the downtrodden, or common either, although a few were black. Downtrodden blacks, not so much...His buddies are race baiters like Jesse Jackson (Jr. or Sr.), Jeremiah Wright, Luis Farrakhan, and other fellow socialist activists and communists who long ago forgot about the downtrodden.

For decades such activists railed against "the man" (Those rich old white men of the Establishment). These activists, radicals, and race baiters are now themselves "the man," and yet, they stir-up dissent and unrest in minority communities, directing people to rage at the "establishment." They simply exclude the fact that they are card-carrying members of that same establishment. Can anyone say hypocrite?! After all, community organizers first goal, according to the late Saul Alinsky, is to break down the foundations within a community. Then, you re-build it according to socialist standards. This usually involves shaking-down businesses and shaming the white man. Jesse Jackson, Sr. and Al Sharpton made their fortunes by doing this. And guess what? The community "organizers" completed their task. There is upheaval, discontent, and suffering in black communities.These people, including Obama, are not humanitarians or peacemakers. They are race baiters who not only prey on minorities' fears, but exploit them, and then get rich off of them. They exploit you, and get rich off of your problems. They keep alive the idea that "whitey" is responsible for all the woes of the downtrodden, and thus help increase resentment and racism in America. (Don't believe me? Read Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson's book, Scam, or Star Parker's book, Uncle Sam's Plantation.)

The point of all of this is that our president speaks with forked tongue. He is a hypocrite, plain and simple. He is always pointing a finger of blame to anyone and everyone for the plight of our nation and its citizens, and feigns concern over us. But his actions speak much louder than words. It seems as though King Obama is thumbing his nose at us. He is a master manipulator, deceiver, and liar. The goal that he reiterated throughout his campaign for the presidency was to "fundamentally change" America. And the un-informed or under-informed American public thought this was a good thing. How's that all working out for you America?

Of course, Obama did not bring about all this change himself. All those "progressive" Democrats, some weak-kneed, sell-out, compromising RHINO Republicans, and the self-serving of both parties helped him. While not simply marching to the tune of the Pied Piper, they themselves were writing massive new laws to further enslave all Americans. Oh, they get on TV and speak in warm, fuzzy terms that make them appear to be heroes and saviors. And the oh-so-grateful recipients of the government's generosity repeatedly continue to vote these hypocrites into office – to our own detriment.

How very stupid we have become! The government has no money of its own. The diminishing working class is funding all of the government handouts. And when the working folks run out of money, where will the money come from to support all of the dependant class? Yes, that's the folks receiving the handouts. Well, there has been discussion about the government seizing retirement funds, which is happening in some European countries like Hungary, Poland, and France. If we think it can't happen here, then we are only fooling ourselves.

Founding Father Thomas Paine once said that government at best is "a necessary evil and in its worst state an intolerable one." We need government. The Bible tells us governments are ordained by God. But the government we have in 2013 is an intolerable one. The President seems to be unaccountable to anyone, making-up or disregarding laws at will. And apparently there is not any way to stop him. But then, fellow Americans, we really are getting what we asked for, are we not? We thought this smooth-talking politician had all the answers to our woes. Ha! Our mothers told us that we should be careful about what we ask for, did they not? And then I am reminded of an old Toyota commercial that said, "You asked for it, you got it, Toyota." Well America, we asked for it, we got it, fundamental change.

Hypocrite-in-chief Obama is not our friend. He is not our Savior, for there is only one who can save us – His name is Jesus. We need to seek forgiveness from God for trusting a man for our help and deliverance, instead of trusting our Lord. May God have mercy upon us, and hopefully it is not too late. To anyone willing to hear....
