Here’s what happened in my nightmare:
On Tuesday, Barack Obama, POTUS (aka “Preezy of the United Steezy”) told lies about women getting paid less than men for the same work, something that has been illegal in the United States of America since 1963. Seriously. He also said a bunch of untrue stuff about some woman named Lilly Ledbetter and her equal pay lawsuit, something I think I remember from an earlier nightmare.
On Thursday, the President of the United States went to Fort Hood, Texas, to attend a memorial service for some American heroes who were murdered, apparently by a mentally-disturbed fellow serviceman (or should I say “corpsman?”), but bugged out early. He spent less time at Fort Hood then he did collecting big checks from his wealthy campaign contributors later that same day. Weird, right?
Even more disturbing, the president refused a request for ten minutes of his time while he was at Fort Hood on Thursday from a survivor of Major Hassan’s jihadi killing spree, Staff Sgt. Alonzo Lunsford (ret.) . He was shot 7 times in November 2009, but Barack Obama didn’t have time for him. Are you starting to see how this was a crazy nightmare? Yes, and it was especially bizarre for the President to decline Staff Sgt. Alonzo’s request, since the President spoke so movingly of the service and sacrifice of the Fort Hood community, and the barely healed wound of the terrorist attack (or was that “workplace violence?”) there in 2009.
Then, and here was the most bizarre and surreal part of the the nightmare, the day after he was in Texas, the President of the United States, the Leader of the Free World, and the successor to Washington, Lincoln and Reagan, was a featured speaker at an event held by one of the most notorious race-baiting hucksters in the history of our nation, a charlatan who was on the receiving end of huge libel judgement against him as a result of one infamous fraud, and who incited anti-Semitic violence that resulted in several deaths. Surely this man, Al Sharpton, must be the modern equivalent of a leper, especially to respectable members of the society, and certain to POTUS. He wouldn’t be within 100 miles of this clown and his ridiculous race-a-thon. Impossible, right? I know, but in my nightmare, he actually gave a speech, and accused Republicans of trying to keep people from voting, calling their claims of trying to prevent vote fraud silly. A guy from Chicago saying vote fraud doesn’t exist? See what I mean?
