Impeachment Is the New In Thing……

All I’ve heard for the last 5 years, from one side of the political miscreants, is IMPEACHMENT. Impeach Obama for enacting healthcare coverage, impeach him for playing too much golf, impeach him for writing too many executive orders, (he’s written less than either Bush or Reagan), impeach him for not starting a war, impeach him for letting 5 Gitmo prisoners go in a trade for 1 American serviceman held for 5 years (Bush let 450 go and, everyone is forgetting that when the war is “over” these men will be let go anyway)….. impeach….impeach….impeach!!

What the impeachment crowd fails to realize is, he has committed no real crime.  That’s right, folks.  The President has NOT committed any type of actual, arrestable felony crime to be impeached for.

So why are these people screaming impeachment, you ask.  I have no clue.  I’ve heard all the rhetoric…..because he’s Black, because he isn’t an American, because he’s a Democrat, because he isn’t presidential…….yada yada yada.

After listening to the crap spewing out of Republican’s mouths in the last 5 years, I’m inclined to believe it’s because he’s a Black Democrat.  Truly.  Why else block virtually every bill Obama and the Democrats  have tried to pass?  Why give big business and millionaires/billionaire’s a free tax pass against the wishes of the public and the President?  Why vote to repeal the Affordable Care Act 50 times, wasting both time and money?  Why shut down the government and cost the taxpayers money and time? Why give themselves a raise and then deny unemployment to those who need it most?  Why lessen the VA’s income and veteran’s care and blame it on Obama?  Why blame Obama and Clinton for Benghazi when the Republicans are the ones who voted AGAINST  increased security at our embassies?

Before you have a coronary or a stoke, everything I’m saying here is documented fact.  Just check the Congressional Record.

It’s a smoke screen on the Republican’s part to try and hide what they are trying to turn this country into…….an oligarchy run by, themselves, billionaires and big business.  The same people who shipped our jobs out of the country and got billions of our tax dollars to shore their businesses up when they didn’t need it, all on the Republican’s okay.

Now, answer me one question….why did no one try to impeach Bush 2 when he did the same thing….released 450+ prisoners, started a war with the wrong country and lied about the WMD’s? Where were the impeach the president people then?  And, remember, the Pentagon has stated publicly, and in Senate hearings, that there were no WMD’s to be found.  Again, check the Congressional Record, not Fox News.

IF all of this is true, and Senate hearings “proved” it was, we illegally invaded a sovereign country, deposed their rightful leader (no matter how much of a POS Hussein was) and there were no consequences for Bush. Where is the parity?  Why did no one scream impeachment then?
Yes, we definitely needed to do something against the terrorists but…….isn’t that what we have spies for? To find the actual people who did this and not take out a sovereign country and its leader just because we THINK he was a part of it?  Bush had a knee jerk reaction and leapt before he thought it out clearly.  As an ex-head of the CIA, he should have known better and used his resources to get a clear picture of who was actually involved besides Bin Laden and his group of asshats.

Every agency questioned said there was no actual proof, beyond giving them shelter in the country, that Hussein was a part of it.  Where is the morality and logic in this?

Can you even begin to imagine what would have happened if another country came into America and did what we did to Iraq? If another country had invaded us and killed Bush?  Accused us of harboring terrorists?  As a nation, we would have gone ballistic.

No wonder the world hates us and considers us bullies and makes fun of us every chance they get.

When we go for a peaceful solution, the way Obama did with Putin, (instead of going to war like a bunch of war mongering idiots), Republicans go nuts. It’s insane.

Where is the diplomacy? Where is the common sense?  Where is the logic?  What happened to living in peace with our neighbors?

We yell impeachment at the drop of a hat any more.  And people follow blindly.  The people/politicians of this country have lost their common sense and they certainly don’t understand the Constitution or how the government runs, let alone the 3 branches of government.  We need to go back to TEACHING THE ACTUAL CONSTITUTION AND GOVERNMENT in our schools. Not the parody it’s become. We need to teach the actual workings of each branch of government so people understand how it works and not the bastardization it’s become.  And it needs to be now.

I believe that we are here for a reason. We just don't know what it is. I believe there are no borders or color differentiations. We're all the same under the skin and we all want the same basic things. I hate injustice and tend to take a stand against what I feel is unfair and just plain wrong. So, read on and comment if you'd like. Happy New Year!

    You’re right about one thing, the people/politicians in this country have lost their common sense, and do not understand the constitution or how the government is supposed to govern, Mr. Obama being the chief culprit of lack of sense and leadership.

    • Government education and teaching the actual Constitution have slowly, for the last 20 years, been short changed in our schools. You don’t get it in elementary school, you get a little in middle school and a little (one semester or summer school) in high school. In my opinion, this is incredibly wrong. Yes, I know kids find it boring but it still needs to be taught every year for at least 4 years of high school. I blame teaching to state mandated tests for this problem. Teachers can no longer teach what needs to be known to make kids productive in this society. They have to teach to a test designed by the state school board that is mostly comprised of business people and not actual educators. Sorry for the soap box, but lack of leadership starts in the schools and that’s where we need to fix it and not graduate cookie cutter kids who don’t know about real life and government.

    I am so thrilled to read this. Thank you! Thank you! If they have a female term for “bromance” I want to start one with you because you concisely and intelligently put all my thoughts and concerns into a blog post. Keep up the good work. (Hope the bromance remark wasn’t too creepy).
