This Week in History:
June 6 marked the the 69th anniversary of D-Day. General Eisenhower addressed the troops departing for the invasion on the beaches of Normandy:
"The tide has turned! The free men of the world are marching together to victory.... We will accept nothing less than full victory!
Let us all beseech the blessing of Almighty God upon this great and noble undertaking.”
Did he mention God? To the troops? Oh my! What an unenlightened time that was. Imagine –a time when our troops felt free to implore a Higher Being as they embarked upon a deadly battle to protect and preserve freedom and liberty.
In fact, back then, people all over America still felt comfortable gathering in public to pray:
Butt enough about that; none of it’s really relevant in the Age of Obama.
I mean, who needs prayers when we’ve got Obamacare? Well, maybe Sarah Murnaghan.
Next up on history’s time continuum: George Orwell’s 1984 was published on June 8, 1949. Boy, talk about synchronicity!
Press reports to the contrary, it turns out it actually was a handbook!
Now, not only is Big Brother watching you,
he’s got the technological capacity to stalk you too!
Yesterday, in an ironic if not downright cynical speech Big Guy went on the record to defend Big Government’s collection of data on the phone records of millions of Americans, saying that it was a modest encroachment on privacy and one he thinks is both lawful and justified.
As an aside, you may have heard about the rather awkward start to Big Guy’s speech:
President Obama strolled out to the podium today in San Jose, CA and was immediately at a loss for words. Not only did the President not have (his) teleprompter, his aides forgot his speech.
“My remarks are not sitting here,” the President declared awkwardly. “I’m uhhh….people….oh goodness….uhhhh...folks are sweating back there right now.”
I know you’re wondering why TOTUS was MIA. I can’t tell you the precise reason yet, as Val-jar is still circulating the talking points for input and comment. Butt according to MOTUS’ inside sources ( ) the initial draft of the talking points indicated that TOTUS has been placed on administrative leave (with pay) due to his malicious deletion of some key misinformation from one of Big Guy’s speech’s. Butt by the time they’ve been properly vetted I suspect they will say that TOTUS is on sick leave due to a blown video circuit. All I can tell you at this point is that we have not ruled out terrorism.
Anyhoo, once Big Guy had his
thoughts remarks handed to him he proceeded to eloquently justify the government’s cyber spying on you:
“If people can’t trust not only the executive branch but also don’t trust Congress, and don’t trust federal judges, to make sure that we’re abiding by the Constitution with due process and rule of law, then we’re going to have some problems here.”
Oh yeah, we’ve got trouble all righty, right here in River City; with a capital T and that rhymes with P and that stands for Prism.
“You can shout Big Brother or program run amok, but if you actually look at the details, I think we’ve struck the right balance.”
When balance defies the law of physics, it’s probably an illusion.
Unfortunately we’re not allowed to look at those details because the most transparent administration in the history of the world doesn’t really trust us with them. Until they’ve been circulated for input, comment and revision. At least 12 times.
So if your government doesn’t trust you,
How can they expect you to trust the government?
The oPhone: when they’re “free” you’re not. Can you hear me now?
*1944…1949…1984…2013: Which Doesn’t Belong and Why? The correct answer is 2013, because the U.S. President is no longer fighting for freedom and liberty. Butt I’m sure there are other correct answers too.
