Obama wants to make us a socialist nation
Going into the fifth year of his presidency, Barack Obama's major secular/socialist policy initiatives are unraveling at the seams.
They are huge expensive/expansive machinations that cannot be understood or explained, much less managed or controlled, and they will bring the country to a state of fiscal chaos if allowed to continue.
Our president's policies are, in reality, nothing more than incremental socialist mechanisms of control that have nothing to do with making anything better and are more in line with tearing down our existing republic and starting over with something completely foreign to our way of life.
It is no mystery that our president seems distant and completely oblivious to the damage being done to our nation, because that is his goal - to break the spirit of the people to the point of desperation, to the point where they will cave to whatever madness he deems appropriate for the good of the "collective."
I refer to the president's entire agenda as a "crisis management of artificially created nightmares" designed to scare the people into making irrational choices that, under stable conditions they normally would not make, for the purpose of getting them to voluntarily relinquish their freedoms.
President Obama said he wanted to "fundamentally" change the country and that he believed in the "redistribution of wealth." The powers-that-be do not want to improve this economy; their goal is to create a totally different country.
Are we so ignorant or blind that we cannot see this?

Capitol Steps reviewer has no sense of humor
I read the review of the Capitol Steps performance in the Gazette and, since I attended the performance, I had to write to the paper. I sat with a group of friends and the performance was very funny. We all enjoyed it and, by the laughter at the Clay Center, so did almost everyone else.
I just have to say, if they return to Charleston, please send someone to do the review who understands satire and has a sense of humor.
