David Ogden, Pres. Obama, and the Rude American Awakening that Lurks Around the Corner.

Obama the Closet Dictator
You know, I think Obama is utilizing Kirk and Madsen’s “jamming” technique, from After the Ball, to flash flood America with the most vile and corrupt of politicians and public officials. In the few months since he was voted into the formerly-esteemed office of the President of the United States, he has succeeded in desensitizing a nation to the most despicable of people by placing them and their wild ideas, in rapid succession, into high-ranking positions of influence in our government. This whole David Ogden appointment has me on edge (almost over the edge, really). I realized today that nothing Obama does is going to surprise me anymore, and that’s not a good thing. Don’t get me wrong; I’m still outraged. Just not surprised. And losing that sense of expectation is akin to losing the demand for Obama’s personal accountability and responsibility, and the ambition and drive to effect change. Getting to know our president’s public persona and agenda – his MO, his causes, crusades, etc. – and having it jammed down our throats on a regular basis through family-threatening, life-devaluing presidential appointments we have no control over, feels creepy and forced and…well…not so surprising anymore. But this is how bad people defeat and control everybody else. They make empty promises that speak right to the most central fear of an individual, converting that person by taking advantage of and manipulating their fear for personal gain. Then, once they have stolen the confidence of the fear-blinded little people, schmoozed the elite, and aspired to the highest position in the land, they power punch their agenda into existence and completion before anyone has even had a chance to blink, let alone squeak out an objection loud enough to be heard over the blind fervor of the masses. Sound familiar? Whole countries have been this dumb over and over again. Why do we Americans think we are immune to being conned and swindled just as the huddled and weary masses of other countries have been? How can we believe our Constitution, our democracy, is what will save us when we refuse to uphold our Constitution anymore?

We aren’t. And it won’t.

Pearl’s sworn statement of awareness, 2/6/2009:

I will not lose my sense of indignation over the intentional and selfish breakdown of marriage and family no matter if it comes from my fellow citizens, the president, or his “official” thugs.

I will not lose my sense of indignation over the devaluation of life no matter if it comes from my fellow citizens, the president, or his “official” thugs.

I will not lose my sense of indignation over the total disregard for parental and children’s rights no matter if it comes from my fellow citizens, the president, or his “official” thugs.

I will not lose my sense of indignation over the marketing of pernicious evils no matter if it comes from my fellow citizens, the president, or his “official” thugs.

I will not lose my sense of indignation over the increasingly overt attacks on religion no matter if they come from my fellow citizens, the president, or his “official” thugs.

I will not lose my sense of indignation over attempts to rewrite, nullify, or ill-interpret our nation’s sacred Constitution no matter if they come from my fellow citizens, the president, or his “official” thugs.

And I will take all that burning indignation, ball it up into a great, heaping, fiery wad of activism, and hurl it with a fury at breakdown, devaluation, disregard, marketing, attack, and subversion.

Essentially, I vow to never stop being surprised, indignant, and outraged at evil. And I vow to never stop exposing those people (and their agendas) who would lull Americans into a false sense of security just before slapping on the hand-cuffs, delivering them to a room devoid of all things pure and innocent, and declaring them eternal captives of “progression” and “free-thinking.”

I choose to remain a humble servant of tradition, value, and morality rather than a prisoner to the oxymoron that is “enlightenment.”

Advocating Awareness,

~Pearl
