Obama administration working to change us

info@islandpacket.comJuly 2, 2013 

We've experienced "Fast and Furious," the Benghazi attack, the Internal Revenue Service as a political player, National Security Agency telephone snooping and a Fox News reporter being investigated. It appears that some officials have either been in a coma or have side jobs working for the Democratic Party. Since top officials seem to be bewildered by these events, it could be that these possible, potential or might-be scandals are really no-fault incidents that just happened -- sort of like a damaging, naturally occurring hailstorm.

Then we have incessant race-baiting, immigration issues, the war on women, gay rights, climate change and the problem of some Christians actually standing firm in their beliefs about biblical teachings. Add in the upcoming uncertainty called Obamacare, and many citizens become overwhelmed, tune out and go to the beach.

There are, however, some people not at the beach. They are presidential loyalists working diligently to increase government regulatory power. They are dedicated to legalizing President Barack Obama's power to rule by decree and allow him to bypass the pesky, uncooperative House of Representatives. Meanwhile, unemployment remains high, federal debt mounts and the economy cannot produce the growth needed to fully employ our young. Don't forget your suntan lotion.
