As we enter this gorgeous summer weekend Washington is on fire and the President is out of town. Not much has changed with the Obama Traveling Medicine Show as we enter the second term of the Hawaiian Huckster. The Obama numbing elixir is having its desired effect; The President uses the government as a tool to control, intimidate and eliminate opposition and America drinks and goes home. His mostly willing accomplices, the Democrats and the media, follow him blithely, tongues hanging, tails wagging, complying with his demand for obedience and heeling as told. There is a small, but hopeful sign that the flow of the elixir will stop, but it is very small and only slightly hopeful. Many people think the current supply of Obama Elixir will be renewed and the numbing effect will return. Are they right? It's up to you.

Last February I wrote a column called Barack Obama: Government's Point Shaver. The "point shaver" reference was to a decades old college basketball corruption scheme and the theme of the column was out of control government. That theme resurfaced when the IRS apologized for scrutinizing 501c4 applications with names that included Tea Party and Patriot. A charge that was denied in Congressional testimony, but turned out to be true. As I noted in my February column we now have the various departments of the federal bureaucracy being run by political appointees and doctrinaire career public employees that support an agenda that is hurting the country. I invite you to read my February meme, which can be accessed by clicking on February to the right of this column. America is being slowly crushed by a federal bureaucracy that the President should be protecting us from. He is either too preoccupied to be bothered or he is leading the charge. We can only hope the latter is not true, although many people believe it is; How about you?
