Balderdash to Obama and his administration

Published: Thursday, Oct. 24, 2013 1:15 a.m. CST

When you watch TV and you feel a surge of anger and frustration, you start to punch the remote buttons to get rid of all that junk of violence, crime, sex crudeness, and killings. I did that.

However, I stopped a moment to watch and listen. Three men who looked like scholars were intensely discussing political history. The specific notion of their subject was “good,” “common good” that, to them, is the goal of any elected official. That is the goal, for the common good of the people – whether people of a nation, state, city or town.

For example, President Obama and his administration – are they working for the good, the common good of our nation?

Obama and his administration strongly support abortion rights and same-sex marriage; put freedom of religion in jeopardy; support taxation, as our nation is drowning in debt; support war; and put moral values in doubt. Obamacare was constructed and ruled in a socialistic method.

Oh, one more point. Egotistical and mad for power, Obama and his administration even orchestrate the giant voices of the media as we hear constantly, “The Republicans are at fault; they did it.”

I say, “Balderdash.”

No. It would be too great a burden for homeowners to dispose of fallen leaves in other ways.
