To correct Lincoln somewhat, he should have said, \x34. . . that government of the people, by the politicians, and for the politicians shall not perish from the earth.

Government's view of the economy: If it moves, tax it.  If it keeps moving, regulate it.  And if it stops moving, subsidize it.  — Ronald Reagan

In the United States, the majority undertakes to supply a multitude of ready-made opinions for the use of individuals, who are thus relieved from the necessity of forming opinions of their own.
-- Alexis de Toqueville

On Tuesday, January 28th, President Barack Hussein Obama will give his 6th State of the Union address before the government assembled (some no doubt at gunpoint): his cabinet, House and Senate members, the Supreme Court, and high military officers. It’s a tradition of long standing, but it has become rather meaningless lately, especially under this president.  Why?  Because you can’t believe a word he will utter.  He has lost all credibility, and more and more people don’t trust him.  On a scale of integrity from zero to ten, he’d have to rate a zero.
The State of the Union speech is always read from a teleprompter, and Barry is a master at reading it.  He’ll read a short section, wait for applause or laughter, then read the next, and so on.  l managed to obtain a copy of the script, and here’s an excerpt:
“It has been a long and difficult struggle, because of the Republicans, but we’ve finally fixed all the problems in the economy.” 
(Applause)
“We’ve created six million new jobs, and only nine million folks gave up looking and claimed disability.  Oops, scratch that last part.”
(Applause)
“Michelle is still on vacation.”
(Applause)
“. . . and, she wants to economize.  She’s travelling with a smaller retinue.  She has only run up three million dollars in expenses so far this year.”
(Wild, standing applause)
“The Affordable Health Care Act is back on schedule.”
(Applause*)  (* note – requires an extremely sensitive microphone to pick the response, which only comes from one side of the chamber.)
“We had sixteen new signups from healthy people this week.”
(Applause)
“ . . . and fourteen million people with pre-existing conditions signed up.”
(Applause)
“ . . . and only eighty million folks lost their insurance.  That’s many fewer than the week before.”
(Applause)
“We doubled the number of food stamp recipients last year.  We think it will double again this year, so that everyone will be on food stamps.” 
(Applause)
“Except Michelle and myself.”
(Laughter)
“So much for the State of the Union.  Now, I’ll talk about all the goodies I’m going to give you.”
(Applause)
“. . . and, you’ll really get them this time.  I’ve decided to do away with Congress.”
(Puzzled reaction – only a spattering of applause, all from the Democrats)
“Actually, I’ve already written the executive order.”
(Applause)
“And, we won’t be having any more divisive federal elections.”
(Applause)
“ . . . because I’ve decided to stay in office for life, because . . .”
(Applause)
“ . . . Michelle doesn’t want to give up Air Force Two.
(Laughter)
***********
Note -- the rest of the speech is a huge list of goodies Obama is going to give us, and he will finance it all by making the rich pay their “fair” share.  However, if he doesn’t do away with Congress, they won’t pass any of it.
Unfortunately, this speech will also be televised to the American public.  A few of them may actually believe him.
