Officials think little of us

President Obama thinks I’m stupid.

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and present Secretary of State John Kerry think I’m stupid.

The Senate and the House of Representatives think I’m stupid.

The Internal Revenue Service and the National Security Agency think I’m dangerous.

Every politician in Washington thinks I’m gullible.

Why else would they feed me a cock-and-bull story about an anti-Muslim video causing a protest outside the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya, that turned violent, resulting in the death of four Americans? The protest actually was a well-planned and organized attack on the 11th anniversary of the Sept. 11th attacks. The president knew immediately it was carried out by al-Qaida.

The worst Congress in the history of this country tells me that Obamacare will be the best thing since the invention of the wheel, yet in the same bad breath its members beg not to be a part of it.

The NSA thinks my emails and phone calls might be a threat to national security.

The IRS wants my money so they can give it to couch potatoes and baby-making machines while harassing fiscal conservatives.

The president wants Congress’ approval to lob a few Tomahawk cruise missiles into Syria as “punishment” for using chemical weapons against their own innocent people. He has told the Syrian government the targets, the duration of the attack and probably when to expect them. Meanwhile, the Syrian government has moved the targets into civilian areas or brought in civilians to the stationary targets to be used as human shields.

Saudi Arabia is absolutely giddy at this proposed attack. Funny – if the Saudis didn’t sell us so much oil, they most likely would be one of our enemies in the region.

The saddest thing is that I could go on and on, but if I did I would end up needing an anti-depressant.

Yes, Washington thinks I’m stupid and dangerous – which is exactly how I feel about them. I believe there is genius and stupidity in Washington. The difference is that genius has its limits.
