What’s wrong with this picture, Part I: While Vladimir Putin is busy gobbling up the Ukraine for Russia, Barack Obama is on ESPN touting his NCAA tournament picks. Really. You can’t make this stuff up. One can only imagine eastern European countries casting a wary eye eastward and wondering what a joke this so-called “leader of the Free World” and his buffoon of a Vice-President are. And there’s nary a word of protest or concern from the mainstream media.

What’s wrong with this picture, Part II: White House says no press coverage of Michelle Obama’s visit to China. Now if this was a pure vacation on the First Lady’s own dime I could understand that. But you damned well she and her entourage are doing this in large part on the taxpayer’s dime, and few of the lapdog media seem upset about it? Again, you can’t make this stuff up. It’s really sickening.

I’ve always believed humans have an innate need to seek in our lives something bigger than ourselves as a way to find meaning in life. Which is why, I think, for progressives and liberals politics is their religion. Embracing the crusade against global warming and every -ism you can imagine is, I guess, one of finding meaning in their lives. They worship the cause because that’s where their hearts and minds are. I suppose the decline of mainline Protestantism has a lot to do with this – after all, it has watered down the Christian faith to make it virtually unrecognizable from even fifty years ago. Replacing the Holy Trinity of Father / Son / Holy Ghost with the god of tolerance, acceptance, and diversity has done society and our culture no favors. But it’s not just the Protestant faiths – even the Catholic Church got lazy and careless in how its own traditions and beliefs have been taught and lived out by its clergy. And don’t even get me started on Islam and what it supposedly teaches these days.

A governor’s race to keep your eye on this fall. The mainstream lapdog media has been so in the pocket of the Democrats and President Obama they can’t see the huge push-back rising up against government at all levels coming this fall in the mid-terms. And it’s not just conservatives and Republicans. Which is why, I think, Rand Paul and his brand of libertarianism has tapped into this disenchantment. Come November, it won’t just be about the Obamacare fiasco, NSA spying, and our retreat from the world stage in the face of Vladimir Putin’s aggression, it will be about government competence, size, and influence on folks’ lives. And that can’t bode well for the labor unions and Democrats.
