I came across this article, “The 5 Traits The Modern Man Is Missing”, from a news/blog site called Elite Daily: The Voice of Generation-Y, via another blog Musings from a Middle-Aged Man, written by a retired police officer. I read his blog frequently, because he comes up with many interesting links to stories about government overreach into our lives and is particularly interested in the federal gambits on gun control. Now, being of a pacifist nature (ok, that’s a lie – I fight when severely provoked……… usually by bullies), but hey, I don’t own any guns, never even thought about owning a gun, but I sure understand the views of those who do own guns. And I understand where Obama’s fundamental transformation is leading us: courtesy of Allen West, in simple cartoon format, “Barry Explains Cloward-Piven Strategy”.
Barry, of course, fits into this thread so well, as he exemplifies, the modern man, described in the Elite Daily article. At the risk of being called a racist, right-wing extremist, Barry rode the Affirmative Action train all the way to the White House, despite not ever holding down any job outside of the far-left political agitating sphere. That provided the springboard into politics and the rest is history. Five years into this gig, even many of his supporters admit he doesn’t seem competent to do this job. Honesty checks itself at the partisan political gate, so these same folks will still support him. Just speaking as a mom and a grandmother, President Obama’s worst failing sure seems to be laziness – yes, I know, I have one kid like this too – brilliant, but sadly, very lazy. We have a President who glories in the public acclaim and perks of being President, but he has no real interest in actually working hard to perform the duties that come with the title. On the right we have weepy Boehner and McCain, reminiscent of Colonel Kurtz in Apocalypse Now………. ready to wage his own wars everywhere. Enough with these milk-toast specimens of manhood, where are all the real men? Are they extinct? Do great men still exist? Let me know when you find one, please, we might need to clone him.
