While on a speaking tour of the midwest, President Obama visited Kansas. He opened his speech by telling the audience “It’s great to be back in the State of Texas!” (http://bcove.me/7f92sme5) . Remember that portions of Kansas once belonged to Texas. It was only when the Congress violated the Constitution and created new States out of portions of Texas that once contained portions of Kansas, Oklahoma, New Mexico, Wyoming and Colorado. Although he has not likely studied Texas history, this gaff is ‘inspired’. In the same speech he also claimed that now is the “Make or break” moment for the middle class. This is also ironic, since his regime has done it’s darndest to break the middle class and incite further class warfare in the empire.
In his typical style of audacity, he even went so far as to blame the internet for recent job losses. (“Layoffs too often became permanent, not part of the business cycle. And these changes didn’t just affect blue collar workers. If you were a bank teller or a phone operator or a travel agent, you saw many in your profession replaced by ATMs and the internet,“) This is the same President that wants more internet as per his jobs speech on September 8 of this year (“The American Jobs Act will repair and modernize at least 35,000 schools. It will put people to work right now fixing roofs and windows, installing science labs and high-speed Internet in classrooms all across this country”.) So is he wanting to kill more jobs? Does he view the internet as good or bad? Or is this another one of his hypnotic statements which he often includes to ‘zone out’ his audience? Who knows for sure. I know that hot water and cold water do not come out of the same tap.
There is an old saying that a broken clock is right twice a day. I guess a broken President is right a few times as well.
Liberty for Texas! (and while we are at it, let’s claim our land back, since the whole land deal was filled with deceptive underhanded dealing).
