Swimming Upstream: “Uptight Over Obama Yet? Then What?”

As soon as you jump into your Chevy Suburban, you hit the buttons on the radio. Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity orMichael Savage streams through the Bose speakers loud and clear. Thank God for these purveyors of truth, you think as you drive down the freeway, heading for your cubicle.

Rush’s or Sean’s or Michael’s point of view is so important that you are forced – yes forced – to stay in the Suburban with the engine running fifteen extra minutes to hear it all. Maybe your liberal anti-Prop 8 boss won’t notice. And if he does, you’ll give him your Clint Eastwood glare. The one that reveals a .44 Magnum Special rage held back by a hair trigger, but ready at an instant to be blasted at an Obama supporter, maybe him. Make my day, you think as you walk inside, reflecting on the somber news of the day.

All of this angst is due to President Barack Hussein Obama being elected. If only Christians would have voted according to the tenants of their faith instead of their comforts. If only Governor Sarah Palin had been the Republican candidate instead of John McCain. If only President George Bush had been more conservative. If only the Republicans in the Senate and Congress had not wasted their majority advantage by acting like a bunch of drunk Democrats. If only. If only.

Now yesterday, Alan Keyes states: “He [Obama] is going to destroy this country, and we are either going to stop him or the United States of America is going to cease to exist.”

This the end, you think as you sit down in your chair, staring at the computer. My children, my grandchildren will be forced to grovel on their knees before Big Brother with their hands out begging for bread crumbs. “Alms. Alms for the poor,” they will cry.

Hey, get a grip on yourself, will you?

Father still sits on His throne. Jesus is still Lord. Holy Spirit is still the Helper.

What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who is against us? (Romans 8:31)

    My God, you guys are really filled with such hate! Please, you’re going to give yourself cancer or something if you’re not careful.

    Thanks for comment.

    Your comment matches perfectly my article. Both are tongue-in-cheek, right?

  3. Hey Larry,I get it,your kidding,sadly a lot are saying the same type things,and are not kidding.Good point,and exactly where we need to be pointed to,Abba.Thanks for laugh[and prod]

  4. This man was born to marxist parents, surrounded by marxist influences in his home, gravitated toward and kept company with marxists throughout his education, and continued to associate with anti-Americans in his social, political, and religious life as an adult.

    All of a sudden he’s going to respect the constitution? honor the flag his best friend danced on and burned, an action over which BHO did not object? respect conservative opinion? support the military that has kept us unattacked for 7 years?

    Pull out your pacifier and pour yourself some high test coffee.

    This president is willing, able, and desirous of changing our country into his version of a compassionate society. In other words, he’s been drinking the commie kool-aid from his baby bottle up to this minute.

    The only thing that will slow him down is us and Rush, Hannity, Beck, Savage, Boortz, et al until Mr. New Patriot Prez signs yet another dictatorial executive order taking away first their freedom of speech, then someone else’s, and so on until we’re as spied on as the USSR’s common men and women ever were.

    Bad things can and do happen to good people when they deny that scary things can happen, hide in their blind optimism (it’s the blind part that’s bad) and refuse to resist. The probability of negative consequences can be high to certain. That doesn’t mean you lay down for it.

    Obama can change our country into something that cannot be restored to anything the founders would even vaguely recognize. If there aren’t enough of the strong and resolute to resist him and too many of the wimpy variety, all the hope and change could very well be “over my dead body.”

    Knowledge is power. A wait and see attitude will fail.

    You’re calling Obama a commie when he’s fighting against calls from republicans to nationalize banks. Seriously…

  6. Twisting in the wind, are we? Name the conservative republicans as opposed to the R.I.N.O.s (Republicans In Name Only) that are calling for nationalization of banks. Name two.

    And, yes, the nationalization of banks whether from RINOs, or Soros himself doesn’t change how the man was raised and the company he’s sought after and kept.

    Shall I find the page number(s) from his own book or would absolutely nothing change the mind of the Obamanut?
