Letters from the Lunar Outpost

Passionate hatred can give meaning and purpose to an empty life.

The Cheerleaders of the Obama State Media

10. The protestors of Occupy Wall Street will get a free education in seeing what happens when the one-percent no longer gives a shit and no longer chooses to fund the welfare state while being cast as villains.

9. For sociologists, Obama’s reelection provides a unique opportunity to witness the curious phenomenon of liberals who once took such great pride in questioning authority now imploring us all to shut-up and obey our masters.

8. The movie “Idiocracy,” once regarded a somewhat obscure comedy, will finally be hailed as a prophetic vision of the future and the true work of genius that it is.

7. We have now been diagnosed, which is the first step in seeking treatment. America has chosen to double-down on the failed policies which brought us four years of rising unemployment and crippling deficits. If the definition of insanity is said to be “doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results,” then we can now diagnose America as clinically insane.

6. In successfully campaigning to reelect the president, the old media gets a lot of the credit at the cost of all of their credibility. After spending every last dime of their credibility, they may have hastened their own extinction, but at least they can take solace in this – with no more need to campaign for Obama, they can treat him just like a child treats a toy they’ve grown bored of and spend the next four years taking him apart.

5. Barack Obama once mocked the idea of American Exceptionalism by saying, “I believe in American exceptionalism, just as I suspect that the Brits believe in British exceptionalism and the Greeks believe in Greek exceptionalism.” For too long America has been subject to the undue burdens of being the last great hope for freedom in the world. Now Obama and those of his ilk have all the opportunity they need to make America completely unexceptional. Enjoy the newfound lack of responsibility that comes being unexceptional, America!

4. Obama got what he wished for in winning a second term as president. Defining moments from our last four two-termers include Katrina, Impeachment, Iran-Contra and Watergate. While it’s too late to warn Obama to be careful what he wishes for, at least we can say, enjoy it while it lasts.

3. While readers themselves ranked Atlas Shrugged as the greatest book of all time, most literary critics despise the book. With Obama reelected, we no longer have to read through an 1,100 page book to see what happens to America when the masses elect the Marxists and the looting runs rampant.

2. The most famous book written on the Roman Empire is Gibbon’s “Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire.” Now historians of today can witness firsthand the most famous period in our history.

1. Those lucky enough to have been alive when America was the most prosperous nation on Earth can enjoy the looks of disbelief on their grandchildren’s faces when they tell them the stories of how things were back before America joined the third world.

  • Q. Why did Obama need a second term?
    A. To chop off America’s other one!

  • I just saw the movie “Flight,” and I think I have the solution for Obama’s second term (i.e., how he can pull us out of this dive).

    W can survive if Obama has a few shots of Stoli, a couple of lines of coke & flies it upside down.

    Else we’re fucked.

  • TY Mike…I needed that! I would add one more….11. So that the limousine liberals will experience the thrill of using their cash as toilet paper.

    • If I am wrong, then I am sorry. I didn’t mean to make you blue . . .

      • Unfortunately, what you say IS true. There are not many good ways for this 4 years to end, except that it will end, and we have additional time between now and when we can start rebuilding. They say that for every month you are out of work, it takes 6-9 months to recuperate…….. I wonder what that means in terms of America recuperating………… just saying………….

    • BTW, you must have nothing but fond memories of those eight years of Bush, nothing but peace and harmony from the left, just wanting to find common ground, right? Oh wait . . .

    • Unfortunately, it usually takes people getting angry to even get off their butts and DO something. If that’s what it takes, so be it…………

    • It’s amazing you’re not complementing me on how magnanimous I’m being here, trying to find the silver lining in the face of defeat. Yeah, it’s easy to be all high and mighty about the harsh rhetoric when your guy won. I think you even fail to remember some of the things you must have said about Bush during the Bush presidency. How many times did you use the word stupid to describe our last president? On a daily basis over eight years, perhaps? At least once or twice a week I’m guessing. Bush was a lot of things, but stupid was not one of them. Just read a chapter or two of Decision Points and that’s quite apparent.

      When we speak of “ist,” we should also bring up the greatest “ist” of all that’s been thrown around these last four years and that’s the “ist” of racist, which the left has used to throw at any one who dare question or challenge to ideology and policies of Obama. I can remember right from the early days of the Obama presidency you even took up the MSNBC talking point about how people calling Obama socialist was somehow racist. I still never figured that one out. The exact same people who call Obama a socialist would also call FDR a socialist.

      As far as revolution, I’m all for it. Reagan Revolution, No. 2. We could have had that last night and I can promise you it would have been Morning in America all over again. We chose a proven failure. How am I supposed to pretend to be happy about that?

    • Unfortunately, that is NOT what THIS president is doing, nor has he during his entire political career. Wake up…… I’m all for speaking things into existence, but that doesn’t mean we should ignore what has happened or is happening now. That is the “victim mentality”, and I, for one, refuse to live that way. I will do the best I can with what is going on right now, but if you aren’t part of the solution, you are part of the problem. Obama is NOT part of the solution. His agenda has done more to steer us further and further from where we need to be going than any other. I’m not saying the others were without fault, far from it, but the impact of the programs that he has been backing, are not what the founding fathers envisioned. It says it very clearly… “One Nation Under God”, which was still in play in Lincoln’s time. Just because things are considered acceptable in our culture, doesn’t make them so. All wrong needs to prevail is for good men to do nothing. Better standing up and being counted late, than not standing up at all. The longer we wait to stand up and be counted, the harder it will be to change the course of this GREAT LAND !!!!!!!

  • The best reason that it is a good thing he won, is that the liberals will be in power when this whole thing blows up. There is no way we can go another 4 years and not have a hyperinflationary blow-up. Since Romney, nor anyone else would not have any chance of preventing this, best to have a scapegoat in power.

    • That’s funny because when Bush W was running for re-election my grandma (RIP) couldn’t bring herself to voting Democrat as she had done for 70 years. (My grandpa voted Republican until his passing.) Her reason? She believed Bush messed things up so bad that no one could fixed things in just four years and she did not want Kerry to be the scapegoat.
