As Framing The Dialogue has entered into its ninth year things now have changed. When B.H. Obama won in 2008, I didn’t protest; I didn’t throw rocks at police officers; I didn’t burn cars; I started a blog. A blog, sadly, that very few people read, but that’s okay as I like writing it. I was pretty dedicated to 3-4 posts per week and I still think many of them were pretty spot on. My start in the blogosphere was jump started by George W Bush’s failure to articulate and defend conservative fiscal values…heck he really stopped practicing them in his second term. The failure of Bush and the RINOs in Congress gave us the housing/financial crisis that contributed to the election of B.H. Obama. I started Framing The Dialogue shortly thereafter.

I’m imagining a high school kid sitting in the principal’s outer office waiting for his sure to be angry parents to arrive. They were summoned by the school because of the student’s misdeed. The tiny little brain is churning, trying desperately to come up with an excuse; any reason to wiggle out of this tough spot; as if this couldn’t be helped; as if it wasn’t their fault. What kind of a whopper would they come up with?
Many times as I read an article I find a few sentences that capture the essence of the piece. In “Phrase-e-ology” I’ll post some thought followed by key phrases. As always I’ll have a link (in blue) to the original article.
I had this thought and included it in my My Country Tis of Me posting a few days ago. I heard a talk show discussing this very thing I had mentioned about the Republicans giving Obama everything he wants thus pinning everything on him. I know it sounds suicidal, but Mr. Arnold Ahlert posted the same thing, but in more detail and he did it two days before my post, though I hadn’t seen his until tonight. Here are some key phrases and as always read the linked article…in two parts.
Banzai Hyena: Banzai of Lion King fame isn’t quite as bright as his de-facto leader, Shenzi. He is quick with stupid jokes and really easy to be offended — or more like: really glad when he can be violent in response to any stupid jokes from anyone who isn’t a hyena. He does not compete with Shenzi or Ed because they’re friends. When he isn’t laughing about his own jokes or Ed’s clumsy behavior then he is still hungry! As always. Hyenas play one kind of bad role in the life of Lions. On the Lion King Muck, most hyenas are evil. But there are nice hyenas and hyena cubs too! Well, not these three, that’s for sure.
No I am not planning to throw myself off of a tall building, but life as a conservative seems rather harsh and I keep looking at how easy it is for liberals with more than a little jealousy. Life for a liberal is quite simple…
- It’s a life where they can go from Global Cooling will kill us unless we do something, to Global Warming will kill us unless we take drastic (and costly) measures, to a nice balance of Global Climate Change which gives them cover to every climate situation. They seem to have no qualms about making these label changes and are as vociferous in their arguments. Oh and they have the backing of the elitist media. That’s much better than the facts.
Like a chicken with its head cut off, Time Magazine continues to thrash about without a brain with yet another uninspiring “Man of the Year” cover. Not only was the selection of “The Protester” further indication of the leftist agenda, but their honored protesters are more famous for their damage than their courage as evidenced by their propensity to hide their identity as they “brave” their opposition. Brave in this case means mob as that is what they are.
Brief 6: Shortly after the new year began in 2012 President Obama signed the National Defense Authorization Act. Tucked into the bill is a provision that many believe greatly expands the ability of the federal government take you into custody and hold you indefinitely;
News briefs are a collection of interesting news stories. This edition is all about how Obama’s unconstitutional actions WILL affect your life
Brief 1: One option that a president has to get some of his controversial nominees appointed is to wait for Congress to recess and then is able to appoint them to a limited term. I remember celebrating W’s recess appointment of John Bolton as U.N. ambassador. Obama stired controversy on recent recess appointments because Congress was not actually in recess. The Supreme Court and settled law had determined that if Congress was not in session for three or more days then they were in recess. Obama, with the backing of his Justice Department waited ONE DAY to claim a recess and appoint his henchmen. Fortunately we have a strong Congress who cares about maintain the delicate balance of the three branches of government and will soon fix/find a way to reverse the appointments – – Oh wait we don’t have enough Congressmen with the guts to take on Obama.
This story about identity theft sounds about as exciting the next story about identity theft except that the perpetrator was not interested in stealing money or assets. Zach Edwards has been accused and arrested for attempting to steal the identity of Matt Schultz. This is still not titillating for you? Here is the headline from the story from the Des Moines Register:
For those of us that lean fiscally conservative the following headline was meant to give solace to the frighteningly steep rise in our nation’s debt;
The borrowing refers to the need to yet again raise our debt ceiling and allow politicians the ability to spend more by borrowing more. I, unlike the article’s author, used the term “politicians” rather than just Obama when referring to the one(s) doing the borrowing. This story is should be primer on how the political class (both right and left and middle) play the game to ensure that they stay in power while seeming to play to their bases.
