According to Webster: fair, (in context) Just to all parties; equitable: honest.
WORD HISTORY: The history of the word fair illustrates how words can weaken in meaning over time. In Old English the ancestor of fair, (fæger,) had senses such as “lovely, beautiful, pleasant, agreeable,” a far cry from our modern sense “mildly good or satisfying.” The Old English senses passed into Middle English, where the word fair started to take a slight turn in the direction already alluded to. Fair could mean “highly to be approved of, splendid, good,” but it could also be used ironically, as in Chaucer’s observation after a horse threw the Cook on the pilgrimage to Canterbury: “that was a fair feat of horsemanship by the Cook.” This ironic use was probably not responsible for the semantic weakening of fair, but it shows how a positive word can have its meaning reversed.
According to Webster: e·nough, Sufficient to meet a need or satisfy a desire; adequate:
Sufficient to meet a need or satisfying the desire? A simple sentence, albeit one that an individual with imagination could take anywhere.
Accordingly, it’s a good thing that my agenda this morning does not include my imagination. As to my way of thinking, imagination is already way too large a part of the Obama administration and the Obama agenda.
Barack Obama in his speaking to his followers, ..and to the nation, ..”at least in my opinion,” ..is so far out of touch with reality that unless this man is defeated in November, ..we, “We the People,” and (America) will suffer the reality of socialism as presently being suffered by the disenfranchised citizens of Greece.
In the News this week, Dr. Shakil Afridi, sentenced to 33 years in prison…
Why is no one answering my call?
Shakil Afridi or Shakeel Afridi is a Pakistani physician who (allegedly) helped the CIA run a fake vaccine program in Abbottabad, Pakistan, in order to confirm Osama bin Laden’s presence in the city by obtaining DNA samples.
Details of the doctor’s activities emerged during the Pakistani investigation of the raid on Bin Laden’s residence, Operation Neptune Spear. He was arrested from Torkham border while trying to escape the country days after the raid that killed bin Laden. On 23 May 2012, Shakil Afridi was sentenced to 33 years in prison. (Source Wikipedia)
I know that when I began today, I (prefaced this offering) by announcing that I would omit imagination from the equation.
However, to be fair, I’m not sure that it’s actually possible to relate the reality of Barack Obama without imagination.
So let’s imagine for a moment that the raid to eliminate Osama bin Laden had gone awry? Let’s imagine that (seal team six) was discovered and captured prior to executing their mission…
What would the headlines across America be heralding?
Would they be Heralding; “Seal Team Six, a rogue group of Navy personnel were sentenced this morning to 33 years in a Pakistani prison for unauthorized activities…
Question: Would Barack Obama have stood behind (Seal Team Six,) ..or would he have followed his “historic path” of denying knowledge of, ..and (responsibility) ..for, ..and of those, (friends and mentors) ..such as the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, ..Bill Ayers, ..and everyone in his address book who would serve to tarnish his image?
Barack Obama touts to all who will listen, that America does (not provide) a level playing field for all Americans.
Which of course is wrong, ..and/or, ..if like (myself) you are so inclined, ..it is a “bald face” lie. America, “does provide” a level playing field for all Americans.
According to Webster: pro·vide, (in any context) To make available.
According to Webster: a·vail·a·ble, Present and ready for use; at hand; accessible.
Statement of undeniable fact: If the laws and freedoms in America were not (present and ready for use; ..at hand; ..and accessible,) Barack Obama would not currently, ..(or ever) be the President of the United States.
Barack Obama, (pure and simple,) ..is a charlatan…
According to Webster: char·la·tan, A person who makes elaborate, fraudulent, and often voluble claims to skill or knowledge; a fraud.
Barack Obama is a graduate of both Harvard and Columbia, and he is on record for having taught “Constitutional Law” at the University of Chicago Law School from 1992 to 2004. (Source Wikipedia)
Accordingly, ..absent any (yet to be disclosed,) ..physical, or mental infirmity? Barack Obama, ..fully understands that his (ideology and agenda) ..do “not align” ..with any (traditional) American values.
Again, for the (Ump-teenth) time, .. I have no problem with Barack Obama being a socialist, ..or even a communist, ..if he wants to move to France, Spain, or Greece, ..where socialism has been established for many years. Or I have no problem with Barack Obama moving to Russia, Argentina, or China.
Albeit, (being a dedicated and pledged American) I do have a problem, (a considerable problem,) ..with Barack Obama’s agenda to change, ..and/or (remake) ..America into France, Spain, Greece, Russia, Argentina, or China.
Which is strange, because in reality, neither socialism or communism have anything whatsoever to do with being fair. Socialism and Communism are all about power and control, which again I reiterate, have nothing to do with being fair.
According to my research, the very first law that Barack Obama initiated and past, was the Lilly Ledbetter fair pay act.

Obama Signs Equal-Pay Legislation…
WASHINGTON— President Obama signed his first bill into law on Thursday, approving equal-pay legislation that he said would “send a clear message that making our economy work means making sure it works for everybody.”
According to Webster: i·de·ol·o·gy, The body of ideas reflecting the social needs and aspirations of an individual.
According to Webster: i·de·al·ist, 1. One whose conduct is influenced by ideals that often conflict with practical considerations. 2. One who is unrealistic and impractical; a visionary.
According to Webster: re·al·i·ty, The quality or state of being actual or true.
According to Webster: re·al·ist, One who is inclined to literal truth and pragmatism.
According to Webster: truth, Conformity to fact or actuality.
According to Webster: prag·ma·tism, A practical, matter-of-fact way of approaching or assessing situations or of solving problems.
Barack Obama is a progressive liberal idealist with degrees from two American Universities. Barack Obama acquired his grand education via the freedom and generosity available in America.
(Sidebar) As it was established long before either I or Barack Obama were born that money does not grow on trees, ..I would like it to be noted that Barack Obama’s education was paid for by working class men and women.
Barack Obama is currently the President of the United States.
I am currently a 70-year-old American citizen dependent on my Social Security check.
I am a traditional conservative, ..not a Republican, ..not an independent, ..and I’m sure as hell not a liberal Democrat. I am a high school dropout that worked for an hourly wage my entire life. I have always paid my taxes on time and in full, I helped fund Barack Obama’s education.
Barack Obama, on his best day, has 30% of America behind him, ..he cannot destroy America. Albeit the (damage) he is doing, ..although (not irreparable,) ..is costly. Accordingly, the sooner his administration is (adjudicated a failure) ..and we, “We the People,” ..the (common sense) people, ..gather to facilitate his “defeat on November 6,” ..the sooner America can begin it’s healing.
Life is not fair, (sadly) ..life is hard, ..if life were fair, ..short people would be taller, ..no one would be homeless, ..and we would all have a Red, White and Blue Boeing 747 at our beckon call.
Think about it, I’ll be back tomorrow
