Brian Patrick Cork is living the Authentic Life

its Civil War, then

September15

So… I’ll never shy away from waxing political and opinionated, on this Blog.

Oh Really? Says, you.

And, today, and this very day, I’ll add another prediction to my growing inventory of good calls…

It’s going to be civil war in-and-amongst the Democrats because Barack Obama has set them up for failure.

Obama has always been so bereft of business, or any kind of acumen, that he really had no idea he could never hope to live up to the high-flying promises he made to get elected as our President. He promised us… well… most of you that voted for him “…great and sweeping change”. Okay… Here is comes [feel it… feel it]: However, the only thing he’s really changed has been his mind – and, that endlessly, as he’s flip-flopped around like a baby seal facing-off against the Japanese.

And, now with unemployment high Obama’s popularity below fifty percent (50%), Republicans likely feel the primaries have reflected an enthusiasm that would serve the party well in the fall, when control of Congress will be at stake.

This means incumbent Democrats don’t know where to turn – other than upon one another.

I’m reasonably certain that most members of the House and Senate fail to represent their constituents, and focus their energies, daily, on staying elected, as much to enjoy platinum benefits and life-styles unrealized by the people they pretend to represent. Today, facing an election year, they can’t even hide behind a presidential smoke screen shrouding a grandiose platform of nonsensical reform. It’s going to look like Jones Town once the real smoke from the fire-fight dissipates. All the “kool-aid” drinkers will have cupped themselves.

Many Democrats are asking Obama to hold-off on making a stand on things like budgets and changes in the tax code until after the elections just so they don’t have to make a stand themselves. But, the Republicans see this from a mile away, are forming tea-parties, and calling their opponents out early. This means Democrats facing real competition for their seats might have to step away from party line and doctrine and actually stand-up for something their constituents need and want. The biggest problem for Democrats is that they don’t know how to do things like work, stand up form themselves, or suck anything up (other than up to celebrity tree-higgers that promise donations). They live off the entrepreneurial and pioneering spirit of everyone else, sucking the blood out of everything – escpecially if “they” means highly-placed workers in government. So, as they single themselves out, they will be picked apart by their own party as traitors, and Republicans alike that know how to fight independently, or for independent thinking and capitalistic values.

It’s going to be like a good old-fashioned border war that will divide states and families into a bitter feud. But, once everything is settled, the lines will have been drawn with more focus, and expectations will likely be made that much clearer with citizen-oriented oversight.

I’m not saying change is always good. It just might mean things are different. But, if you don’t like what’s happening, you have the choice of either changing the rules, or changing the circumstances. And, that is, more often than not, the cause celebre of most Civil Wars.

Stay tuned.

Peace be to my Brothers and Sisters.

What’s All This About?

"What am I looking at?", you might wonder.

Lots of stuff.

Meanwhile, here, I discuss events, people and things in our world - and, my (hardly simplistic, albeit inarticulate) views around them.

You'll also learn things about, well, things, like people you need to know about, and information about companies you can't find anywhere else.

So, while I harangue the public in my not so gentle way, you will discover that I am fascinated by all things arcane, curious about those whom appear religious, love music, dabble in politics, loathe the media, value education, still think I am an athlete, and might offer a recipe.

All the while, striving mightily, and daily, to remain a prudent and optimistic gentleman - and, authentic.
