The patient- the United States Citizenry.
The poison- obama's feeble and failing economic policy.
The medicine- an increase in the unemployment compensation timeline, an increase in the minimum wage, an increase in the social welfare programs, takeover of the healthcare system, all designed to further hobble the economy and make as many people dependent on the government handouts as possible.
We are plunging into an era where those that can work find themselves without the need, therefor without the desire.
Simply look to the most recent unemployment statistics. The drop in percentage is due to people abandon-ing the workforce, not due to any policy driven employment surge. The fact is, obama's policies have driven the economy backwards as hard as the private sector has attempted to push forward.
The scary part about this is that it is on purpose. Just like obama's war waging with the use of gender, religion and racism.
Which leads into someone else who uses racism to make a living. To find further proof that jesse jackson seeks to create chasms wherever possible using racist wedges, you only need to go as far back as the comments made by Duck Dynasty member Phil Robertson. jackson attempts to link tolerance and acceptance together with no room for personal beliefs and freedom of religion. As did those other organizations that touted Phil Robertson as being "racist" and "anti-gay". I wonder how many of these bigots actually read the interview before spouting off.
NOTE: You will have a difficult time finding the comments made by Phil Robertson in context and with the questions asked unless you purchase the GQ Mag. Do the search, how many articles are there that actually do not take a fragment from the interview and attempt to sensationalize it?
The 'media', of course, eats this stuff up. After all, any religious conservative with strong beliefs is most certainly a racist homophobe. Unless they're Muslim. They are off the table because they will bite back.
What further proof do you need that the media is as far left and socially irresponsible as they could possibly be than the latest 'republican scandal' with NJ Governor Chris Christie. The completely lopsided coverage and further skewering of Christie proves beyond a doubt where the 'media' stands. It is irrelevant as to wether or not Christie is in the wrong at this point, that will be discovered and hammered home without mercy.
What is relevant is that Christie's people took a page from the obama political textbook and ran with it. Because it wasn't obama or a liberal democrat calling the play it is not considered fair practice, therefor people need to hang. So where were the 'media' when the Benghazi scandal occurred, or when the IRS scandal came to light, or the fast and furious gun running scandal, or any number of other scandals that they decided were not worthy of their scrutiny?
The fact is, the 'media' can't be trusted any more than those that are spewing the lies because they have become dependent on them. They have become the pilot fish when once the shark.
And who is hurt most by all of this? Everyone down the chain. And it will get worse.
Rush Limbaugh made an observation on his radio show yesterday that bares repeating. I don't remember it verbatim but the gist of it is, that in the past politicians would go after each other using each others past deeds as muck, but now they have begun to use the people that they are supposed to represent to wage their wars against each other.
obama used the people when closing the War Memorial, he used the people when dictating that layoffs had to occur rather than finding the money elsewhere, during the sequester. obama sacrificed the lives of hundreds for the 'fast and furious', and he and hilary clinton sacrificed those lives in Benghazi.
And the 'media' sacrifices each and every one of us for their own agenda every day.
