Undressing the Future

President Obama stood before dignitaries of the house to foretell the direction this country will head. He asked those whom sat in the house of congress to join him in bettering the future of America as he faced a desegregated crowd of congress. His tone was bipartisan and the atmosphere seemed perceptive as they applauded the President’s address to the nation. The message was inclusive of considering the ideas of the opposition as well as his allies, to propose plans that can create a paradigm for our country’s future. The President showed restraint and poise as he cited a little humor towards the republican’s repeal of his health care bill, by pointing out that the bill was not perfect and he would work with congress to improve its policies.

Nevertheless, the President’s approach of magnanimity on where to take this country failed to reach the minds of many who agendas seem to be impervious, if not myopic of wavering from the ideas they want to put forth. The President sees the area of stagnate policies over the years that kept a deaf ear to this country’s cries for preserving our viability with producing policies that promotes this country’s economy. His message was clear and straight to the point… We need a Sputnik moment! This country been held back from operating it potentials with leadership in manufacturing, education, infrastructure, engineering and energy of the future. He spoke on eliminating excess waste in government spending that will allow a more accountable and efficient governess, and changing our tax laws so that it can lift the burden off small businesses ability to do more hiring.

This President served a tasteful meal of ideas, which seem geared to reach across the whole spectrum. He steered away from controversies by not engaging control on gun laws and, was minute on the behavior of civility as he began his address recognizing an empty seat of a fallen congressperson recovering in rehabilitation – Gabrielle Giffords. The President also seemed to be introverted when it came to pointing out the levels of the working class – almost oblivious as he panted out his agenda for our future. Overall, I think he was magnanimous, insightful, optimistic, mindful, and concise as well as presidential. It was a wonderful State of the Union address!

The rebuttal by Paul Ryan had little to do with his view with the President’s address on our country’s policies and more to do with his twelve-step interest in enshrining the occupation of the rich. Ryan began his response with nobility as he recognized Gabrielle Giffords and he seemed to show a tone of bipartisanship until the veil fell off, and the real true self became apparent. He started lingering on about big government being detrimental to our country’s solvency and future. Rep. Ryan talked about a 25% increase in governmental spending under President Obama’s leadership and with the failed stimulus, it reach the levels of 84% that contribute to a 3 trillion dollar deficit increase. OOOh! Sounds so scary don’t it.

Let us roll back the clock for a moment… When President Bush came into power, this country’s economy was booming. President Clinton passed his successor a surplus and a stable economy – eight years passed and Bush along with a republican congress managed to slaughter our budget into a recession. Created two wars that went uncap in budget, deregulated the business industry causing bubbles in the housing market and killed the growth levels of our GDP and loss contact on governing the domestic side of our country’s interest as he alienated our standards around the world. The republicans created a century worth of problems for this country under Bush’s leadership in less than a decade.

That type of phenomenon almost seems like a mission impossible, yet the irony of it all is that it’s factual. Obama is the scapegoat president for the nightmare Bush put us through by the republicans – we can remain bamboozled or we can face the facts. President Obama is our only hope for a better future. Unbelievably we are in a class warfare that has undermined the middle class as well as the lower class levels in this country. Private companies only agenda is to produce product and gain profit from their invested interest, otherwise it would not call itself a business. Do you really think a business would sacrifice long-term losses for short-terms gains? Throughout the history of business and government, it always acted as a joint venture with future projects in research and development. Practical wisdom dictates that the future of investment starts from the foundation of government interest before it evolve into a microcosm.

Do you really think that during the recession, none of those banks and private companies had the capital in reserve to reinvest into their own recovery? Surely, they did but the risk was far too great to chance losing their profit levels. The mindset of business is not target to carry out the responsibility of providing a comfort-zone for the welfare of the public at large, government was design for that task. It is ludicrous for the republicans to think that if the government strap-down its duties to the taxpayers into zero involvement, it would somehow make our lives better because the private sectors will superhero our economic problems. The private sector’s goal is to make money for their stockholders – to profiteer their interest at the expense of the public through the art of usury the sin of all humanity.

Ryan cited, “people who are in and near retirement will be protected.” My question is why do we need protection? Rep. Ryan seemed vague in his criticism of the health care policies they repealed in congress and with what they would replace the health care bill with carries a challenged problem for the GOP.

Rep. Ryan continued… talking about founding fathers, declaration of the constitution, without any clear point on where the republicans wanted to take our country. They spent eighteen months of saying “no,” and now they what to spend the next two years with saying “wait and see.” We do not need their draconian policies or their massive cuts geared towards the poor, and we sure do not need myopic approach solutions towards broad problems. He ended his babbling with “social net solution” and I wondered was he picking losers and winners.

Ryan was cryptic, accusatory, grim, pessimistic, secrete, vacuous and consistent to carry out the same policies that lead to our recession in the first place. Every major big deal that help fostered a better economy always taken place because of governmental investment throughout our history. The leadership of this country is place in the hands of our government by the interest of the people and to revoke the responsibility the government has in safeguarding our future will lead us on a road to nowhere. I love America and respect the transformation it had to undergone to make us a more gracious society that believe in our abilities to overcome any obstacle standing in our way. If we must undress the future of this country, let us not get caught naked without a layer of dignity and respect for unity. That’s the MMO.
