Arabian Nights: King of the Black Isles by Maxfield Parrish
I’ve had a week or 2 of “just too much.” Too much information and too many events that are too depressing, too frustrating, too sad that I just had to walk away from it all for a while. There are some things I can’t walk away from, in my personal life. But there are things in the news that make me want to cry or scream at the stupidity and callousness of people.
I hate neglecting my blog and I really hate neglecting the blogs of my fellow bloggers, although I know they understand all too well how we all get overloaded on occasion.
Everyone feels information overload now and then, especially in these days of instant news.
One thing that’s really getting under my skin is all this polling nonsense. I don’t want to see anymore polls about hypotheticals. I don’t want to see anymore of those “if this person were running” what the outcome would be stats. If they’re not officially in the race, I don’t care. Let them do their own internal polling to decide if they should be in or not. In fact, it’s all too early to judge and we all have our own personal favorites. Intentional or not, this kind of polling news shapes the mood of the country.
I’m tired of the distortions and double standards in the news, primarily from the left. When will someone ask a democrat politician if he disavows Ed Schultz’ slut rant about Laura Ingraham? They ask the same stupid questions of republicans over anything that Rush Limbaugh says, although the worst I’ve ever heard Rush call a liberal woman is a FemiNazi. Why anyone should be expected to condemn the opinions of another is beyond me, but they do it all the time to republicans and conservatives. Why not ask a democat/liberal that same question?
What we see happening in the south with the flooded farmland and the tornado destruction is so heartbreaking. I don’t see the feds or the president in there doing a whole lot to help those people. Just a lot of lip service from TheOne. Most of those people, though would prefer that the feds stay out of their problems. They’d rather take care of themselves and their own. That’s the mentality of Americans in fly-over country. They are the originators of “YES WE CAN do it ourselves and better, thank you very much!” And they do and will.
You know, I’d rather write about Maxfield Parrish. He’s one of my favorite artists/illustrators. My daughter was born on his 110th birthday.

Here is the proof that the average American understands the intent of the Constitution and the Political class does not:
from Rasmussen Reports:
Nearly seven-out-of-10 Mainstream voters say states should have the right to opt out of some or all of the health care plan, but just as many of those in the Political Class disagree and oppose allowing states that right.
But then 85% of Political Class voters favor the requirement that every American must obtain health insurance, while 74% of those in the Mainstream are opposed to it.
It’s obvious from this poll that the Political class has no understanding of state’s rights, individual rights, limited federal government or the beliefs of the Founders and writers of the Constitution – not to mention, no understanding of the document itself.
When you start to think about this, it’s kinda scary. The Political class believe that the government can mandate or force people to buy something that THEY deem necessary and proper and they believe that they know better than you do or than your state does. These elitists are so arrogant that they believe they know better than the Founders, not to mention you and me.
This is all a direct result of the radically liberal education the politicals have received in America.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: These people are no smarter, in fact less smarter, than you and I. And yet, we keep electing them to office as though they know best. We trust them to make the right decisions when they have no understanding of the oath and office they hold.
I wish more people like you and me knew this. We would need no term limit amendment. That’s what elections are for and an informed mainstream voter would vote their limits every election.

If you check the trends, Americans are alnost evenly split on total approval/disapproval numbers and have been for a long time. This is really not a good thing. It indicates how polarizing and devisive this administration is to the American people.
From Rasmussen today
