On a Barack Hussein Obama Update II

September 30, 2013

October 1, 2013

Well, I TOLD YOU SO! For those new to the newsletter, I wrote 7 articles last year detailing Barack Hussein Obama’s (BHO) failings. I believe the articles proved beyond a reasonable doubt that BHO was:
1. dumb, incompetent, and unqualified
2. lazy
3. a liar
4. un-American
5. arrogant and insulting
6. an egomaniac
7. indifferent and uncaring
For me, articles (1) through (4) are the most troubling. Since I believed that I could prove all of the above in a court of law, comments were solicited from my liberal friends, colleagues, and relatives – providing them with an opportunity to prove me wrong. This group, unlike others, was devoid of responses.

It appears BHO has made a genius out of me. This guy is just great – actually amazing. Nobody has ever provided me with feed material like BHO. Why? A lot has transpired since then. Let’s take a look at some of his “activities” this past year, as drawn from my BHO files. See if you can attach the appropriate numbered article(s) above from last year to the activity listed below.

1. Ft. Hood – don’t rush to judgment
2. Boston Marathon – don’t rush to judgment
3. Boston detective/Harvard professor – rush to judgment
4. Zimmerman – rush to judgment
5. Ambassador Rice’s debacle and her reassignment
6. Benghazi coverup – he will get to the bottom of it
7. Hillary Clinton coverup
8. Foreign policy!?/*?!
9. The IRS scandals – he will get to the bottom of it
10. Gross mismanagement of the economy
11. Obamacare
12. $100MM vacations
13. AWOL at daily Pentagon meetings
14. Pleading for civility/collegiality
15. Consistent pattern of corruption
16. Tampering with phone records – he will get to the bottom of it
17. Political and financial ties to the media
18. Indecision! Think of Lybia (4 months) and the poison gas episode in Syria
19. Jay Carney – remember, he speaks for BHO
20. Fast and Furious – he will get to the bottom of it
21. Continuing tours of apology abroad
22. Feud with Netanyahu
23. Releasing specific classified information
24. Hordes of regulations hampering the economy
25. Thousands (probably millions) of useless government workers and officials
26. Exempting insiders from certain disastrous provisions of Obamacare
27. The disconnect between BHO as well as teachers, IRS employees, other civil servants and government bureaucrats with real life
28. Continues to maintain that the present system of government is the problem
29. Continues to maintain that we are the problem, not the solution
30. Double talk – that’s the name of his game
31. Confusion – that’s also the name of his game
32. Embarrassed Prime Minister Cameron on Syria
33. We didn’t get where we are by ourselves!?!*
34. He actually believes that if we play fair with our enemy, they will play fair with us
35. A year ago: “Assad must and will go”
36. Nearly everybody has lost confidence in him
37. He has yet to accept responsibility for any of the above
38. Phony accusations – all of the above, according to BHO
It’s not just one of the above; it’s all of the above. Have I missed any? Have I distorted anything?

There are other activities that have personally impacted me. Surely each of you in the reading audience has also been affected by BHO.

Here is what can now be said of BHO. He has knowingly and deliberately allowed the general public to be misled by both the media and our government. He has encouraged racism by his silence on race issues. He (as well as the Last Lady) has encouraged a non-existent gender issue. He has pitted the young against the seniors with his health care program. He has encouraged animosity (and even hatred) between the rich and poor, liberal vs. conservative, traditionalist vs. progressive, union vs. non-union workers, haves vs. have-nots, moderates vs. liberal fanatics, etc. Think about his actions and conduct. He is dividing us to cover his own shortcomings and failures while fostering a misguided perverse philosophy and doctrine of socialism. The bottom line is that he has spread a spirit of race, gender, age, class, etc., hatred throughout our great nation that may be responsible for some of the recent barbaric acts here at home.

Slowly but surely, more and more individuals are classifying themselves as former supporters of BHO. But the hard-core fanatical liberals continue to ignore the facts. Their slobbering support for him is unwavering even though he is unquestionably the dumbest U.S. and most confused president … EVER! It is this guy—a confused novice egomaniac and a not-too-bright pacifist—who is “negotiating” with Syria and Iran on poison gas and nuclear issues, respectively. And talk about being dumb: how about Nancy Pelosi and Joe Biden?! Imagine what would happen if BHO got THE call at 3:00 in the morning! He looks totally un-Presidential, and is obviously out of his league and not capable of playing in the power lane. He has become an embarrassment to our nation.

Finally, he is also a phony. A real phony. Ever notice his sour puss when he exits from Air Force One, gives an insulting salute to the attending marine, and then puts the big smile on when he approaches his media and supporters. Ever notice how BHO grabs and/or touches people to assure them that he really, really, really cares about them? Putin gave him a disgusted look when he tried his phony act on him. I would have told BHO to keep his hands to himself. Let’s face it, the guy is a legitimate con-man and a fake – the word ‘genuine’ is not in his vocabulary.

Once again, have I distorted, lied, misrepresented, etc., the content above? Let me know. I love hearing from you, so keep the comments coming.

On Purely Chaste, Pristine, and Random Thoughts XIX

September 1, 2013

September 1, 2013

In the mailbox: see end of article.

No one – including CBS, NBC, ABC, Hannity, Greta, Geraldo, and Billyboy – has recently requested my thoughts on life in general. It’s hard to believe, but it’s true; notwithstanding this embarrassing dilemma, I am forging ahead with the following 20 points of potential interest to the Theodore Newsletter readers.
• I no longer use the word “romantic” with the word “war”,
• Why can’t more politicians be like Maureen O’Connell?
• The holidays will arrive in four months. I suggest you send either hand-written or computer-generated greeting cards/notes. In your message, remember that you can’t negotiate with time.
• The three main jobs of an educator are to instill the value of scholarship, athletics, and intellectual honesty in his students.
• What unrenowned educator/author said: “Contrary to what many believe, I was something less than a mediocre student in college with a GPA of 2.4/4.0” (answer at end of article).
• Looks, height, sex (women have the upper hand here), personality, ethnicity, being a “doer”, and abilities to communicate verbally and in writing are the main predictors of an individual’s future success.
• Prior to marriage and becoming a father, I never gave a second thought to where my life, education, and professional world would take me. My education and early career decisions were (fortunately?) made by others. However, I did learn in my mid-teens that physical labor was not for me.
• One of the important keys to success for those who work for industry, business, education or government is to make oneself indispensible on the job.
• I believe most doctors start out dedicated to serving their patients, but then greed sets in. Speaking of doctors, I still remember my first encounter with mine who I called and informed him that I’d just broken my leg in two places. “What should I do?” I asked. He paused and then replied: “Don’t go back to those two places”.
• Someone once said that 80% of life is just showing up. Modern technology has reduced that to somewhere in the 20-30% range.
• Relatively speaking, and family commitments aside, I never let my education or job get in the way of having a good time.
• I dedicated one of my books to Bill O’Reilly. I sent him a copy. He never acknowledged receiving it. I requested the book be returned. I’m still waiting.
• I never had a one year, five year, ten year, etc. plan in my adult life. NEVER. Daily or weekly plans – yes. I don’t believe in long-term plans work – they hinder originality and can create unnecessary problems and stress. The technology explosion revolution has all but eliminated long-range plans.
• I have been involved in a lot of different “outside” activities. But, W-2 forms were received from the same organization for 50 consecutive years. Conclusion: I never had the guts to leave.
• Why can’t caring parents tell their kids that they need to read, write, etc. in order to succeed in life?
• I was a Depression baby.
• The Great Depression affected many. Despite growing up in the slums of Hell’s Kitchen, it wasn’t until the mid-50s that I became aware there had been a depression. I wasn’t rich, was never a big spender, but can’t ever remember not having something I wanted or needed during that era.
• I’m proud to say that my parents never said a negative thing about any race or religion.
• For those of you my age, I still remember Gabriel Heater and The Lone Ranger radio programs.
• I still pal-around and vacation with approximately two dozen friends of 50+ years. One of them was recently observed arguing with a stop sign.

Mailbox (re: The New Cooper Union)
Sad what has happened to Cooper Union and to America. With 51% of Americans voting for this Muslim/Communist, it will take decades, if ever, to overcome his purposeful destruction of America.
Name Withheld

Mr. Theodore: I loved the Cooper article! I hadn’t known a lot about the institution but I really liked your perspective. You also asked for my comments on the NYRA article. Candidly, you do seem a little bitter in the article and it wasn’t my favorite but, in fairness, I think I’ve put NYRA in my rearview mirror and it’s no longer interesting to me. I’ve lost hope that my children will be able to enjoy a “Day at the Races” with their families and/or friends 20 years from now. I think NYS has ruined the Sport of Kings.
