New generation voted for Obama

This was not your grandfather’s election; American citizens voted. We feel good about the outcome moving forward for four more years.

President Obama has been sidetracked to answer questions concerning the CIA sex scandal. Human life finds its highest fulfillment in love of man and woman. Solomon loved the physical beauty and sexuality of women. Only in America do we destroy marriages and family when we interfere in people’s personal lives between two married, consenting adults having an affair. It is not your business. Get a hobby. Keep your nose out of other people’s bedrooms when you are not welcome. This misperception only destroys families’ lives. We went through this with President Clinton and other government officials.

The good old boys want to increase the retirement age to keep their jobs. Most of them are as confused and disoriented as Sen. John McCain, making irrational comments and unreasonable decisions on foreign policy and President Obama. Sen. Mitch McConnell needs to submit his retirement paper, allowing Speaker John Boehner to make the right decisions without fearing for his job when he agrees with President Obama.

This is a new generation. Forty-seven percent voted. We counted. We voted for changes and compromise. President Obama will jump-start the economy.

I want my 40 acres and a mule.

    The negligent deaths of 4 Americans in Libya is not a ''CIA sex scandal'', Mrs. Noble. The lying and coverup about that terrorist attack is. Your 47% of very uniformed people who voted themselves more free stuff is in fact, the end of the Republic and the beginning of tyrannical rule. The reason this is happening is directly attributable to your welfare society along with illegal immigration and its horrific consequences . You are the product of that confluence of evil and your ignorance speaks volumnes as to the gravity of what will happen now. As it all crumbles now, you will leave this world hating America, blaming all for the electoral decisions you and your street mob of thugs made that caused it.

    (To be sung by children, K-12, every morning of their seven-day school week.)* The State is my shepherd, I shall not want. It makes me lie down in federally owned pastures. It leads me beside quiet waters in banned fishing areas. It restores my soul through its control. It guides me in the path of dependency for its namesake. Even though our nation plunges into the valley of the shadow of debt, I will fear no evil, For Barack will be with me. The Affordable Care Act and food stamps, They comfort me. You prepare a table of Michelle Obama approved foods before me in the presence of my Conservative and Libertarian enemies. You anoint my head with hemp oil; My government regulated 16-ounce cup overflows. Surely mediocrity and an entitlement mentality will follow me All the days of my life, And I will dwell in a low-rent HUD home forever and ever. Amen.
