MR. PRESIDENT, HOW ABOUT GIVING SOME BACK? America’s #GimmeFive Questions for Obama

Originally posted at CLASH Dailybo-2-300x180

America has endured over five years of pure mayhem that has resulted in a national health crisis that has systematically caused politically-induced high blood pressure and heart failure.

Despite suffering from a cancerous condition that is currently eating away at the very fabric of our great nation, we have a first lady who ignores the obvious illnesses her husband has both literally and figuratively inflicted on otherwise strong Americans. Instead, Michelle Obama chooses to focus on superficial hashtag campaigns that are supposed to encourage a level of health in a nation being slowly poisoned by her liberal husband’s progressive policies.

Not to be disrespectful, but Michelle’s #GimmeFive hashtag effort has about as much influence on the Obama-inflicted poor health of America as a Band-Aid would have on Dana Carvey’s SNL character Massive Head Wound Harry.

Think of it! Here you have a president standing beside his wife in a PSA where she asks tapped-out Americans to #GimmeFive. This from a man who refuses to acknowledge the religious affiliation of Islamic terrorists who remove, at a minimum, five heads a day!

If Barack Obama were looking for five of something, surely ISIS would love to participate in the first lady’s campaign. But the five contributions ISIS would ‘gimme’ to Obama would have nothing to do with planting gardens, dance class, or fruits and vegetables. Instead, on behalf of #GimmeFive, ISIS would deliver five heads an hour to an ever-growing pile of bodiless corpses.

For the rest of us poor schmucks who for the time being still have our heads, #GimmeFive has the potential to take on a whole different meaning.

In fact, if Americans were on the receiving end instead of the #GimmeFive end of the campaign, Barack Obama giving us five of something we need to benefit our health would probably do more for corporate vigor than Michelle Obama demanding that we all Drink Up! five bottled waters a day.

After all, for five-plus years, Barack Obama has been saying #gimme #gimme #gimme to us, and what he hasn’t been able to Constitutionally #gimme, he’s seized anyway.

That’s why, perhaps it’s time America demands Obama extend some of the #GimmeFive he’s selling in our direction.

For starters, how about we demand Obama #GimmeFive fewer tax dollars taken for every $50 in all of our paychecks, or maybe it’s time we ask why #GimmeFive Obama tweeted that 11.4 million people were enrolled in Obamacare when the millions, give-or-take, were more like five.

Then, after the #GimmeFive advocate gets done explaining some of that stuff to us, maybe he can help us improve our national health and mental wellbeing by giving us five good reasons why, despite negotiating with Iran, two Americans – one a pastor and the other a US Marine – whose total years incarcerated add up to more than five, are still rotting in an Iranian jail.

How about Obama explaining to America why, after five years of empty promises, our border remains open, and millions upon millions of dangerous illegals, sick unaccompanied illegal minors, and terrorist types of every stripe continue to sneak in and threaten the safety and wellbeing of our citizens?

And about the unemployment rate, why say that it’s down to 5.6% knowing full well that it’s more like double that?

Can Obama #GimmeFive valid reasons for any of that?

How about five justifications as to why, for the last five years, he’s turned his back on Israel, or here at home increased the national debt by 53%? How about answering the question as to why his #gimme wife goes on approximately five $5 million #gimme taxpayer-funded vacations a year, or why five dangerous Taliban fighters were swapped for one pusillanimous Army deserter?

What about the five specific times your #GimmeFive administration attempted and failed to circumvent the law?

As for the #GimmeFive proposal, here’s another question that needs to be answered: why do Obama and Michelle lunch at Five Guys while government-funded school lunches consist of five grapes, five pieces of dried-out melba toast and five ounces of warm skim milk?

So if Michelle Obama and her husband Barack want to focus on health, maybe they can begin the process by offering a few #GimmeFive answers to some of America’s most gut-wrenching, health-eroding questions.

 

Is it ‘Uptown Funk’ or ‘American Funk’?

Based on the message being sent from the White House, America is turning into a country led by a bunch of entertainers resembling intrepid plane passengers who calmly read magazines during extreme turbulence.

You know the type: the airplane is being bombarded with lightning, altitude is being lost, and the cabin is being violently shaken, yet rather than white-knuckle shrieking, one or two aboard carry on casually thumbing through People magazine as if everything is fine.

Science fairs and White House Easter Egg Rolls aside, in Tikrit, Iraq at Camp Speicher, mass graves crammed with what may be the remains of 1,700 Shi’ite soldiers slaughtered by ISIS militants have been unearthed at the late Saddam Hussein’s presidential compound.

Meanwhile, back in Washington, D.C., like an air traveler unaffected by turbulence, Michelle Obama, the first lady of the United States, chose to honor the resurrection of Jesus Christ by taking to the stage accompanied by the So You Think You Can Dance dance troupe to strut her stuff to Bruno Mars and Mark Ronson’s hit song “Uptown Funk.”

I liken Michelle’s Easter dance exhibition to the unruffled air traveler at his or her finest.

Maybe I’m a bit too critical, but I adhere to the old-fashioned belief that even if our nation has been blessed by an extremely enthusiastic “hood girl” wannabe like Michelle Obama, a funkadelic/“ptown funk gon’ give it to you” dance party for Resurrection Sunday lacks presidential propriety.

But even if boogying to “Uptown Funk” to commemorate Easter were acceptable, for the first lady to emphasize a #gimmefive healthy-eating celebration while Iran salivates over destroying Israel with a nuclear bomb, Christians face martyrdom worldwide, and 1,700 skeletons of ISIS victims are being unearthed sends a message that is stunning in its indifference and detachment.

Shi’ite soldiers were machine-gunned down by the thousands, Kenyan children were slaughtered while praying, and Coptic Christians were beheaded on a beach.  Meanwhile, instead of showing a sincere concern for the state of a world on fire, the wife of a president more worried about children being stung by bees than aborted or infected with a deadly paralytic Enterovirus that he imported feels it’s the perfect time to flaunt her well-toned guns at a secular sideshow of an Easter Egg Roll.

Far be it from me to criticize, but taken in context and based on the partying in the midst of the international chaos currently going on, something in this voyage to nowhere is dreadfully amiss.  And,not to be a Negative Nancy or anything, but no amount of distraction, dancing, or pretending it’s not happening is likely to stop it.

In the Scripture, in the 4th chapter, 8th verse of his first letter to Timothy, Paul brought up an eternal truth that, before she exerts any more energy, Mrs. Obama clearly needs to comprehend.  Paul’s course-correcting advice to his young charge was that “physical training is of some value, but godliness has value for all things, holding promise for both the present life and the life to come.”

In other words, when this plane goes down – and trust me, it is going down – no amount of healthy eating, ample hydration, or fancy aerobic dance moves is going to matter in eternity.  So try as the FLOTUS might to dance her way through America’s funk, her message of gross indifference and callous disregard for worldwide misery reflects a profound spiritual malaise that requires an intervention far beyond a choreographed romp to “Uptown Funk.”

Obama calms children as bees swarm his storytelling

Although it sounds a little like a new product for a couch potato suffering from chronic constipation, Michelle Obama’s ‘Let’s Move!’ initiative is celebrating its 5th anniversary of imposing government regulations on a nation that would rather she focus on something besides food.

To celebrate ‘Let’s Move!’ success, the healthy hashtag #gimmefive was added to this year’s theme for the 137th White House Easter Egg Roll.

Amidst all the excitement, in addition to hardboiled symbols of fertility being rolled around on the lawn of a pro-choice president, the first lady thought it would be appropriate to honor the ‘risen Christ’ by strutting her stuff with the “So You Think You Can Dance” dance troupe in time to a rhythmic rendition of “Uptown Funk.”

Then, in keeping with tradition, despite Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi being nowhere in sight, Barack Obama took to the Story Corner to read a cautionary tale by Maurice Sendak entitled “Where the Wild Things Are.”

Adhering closely to the tradition of prior years, the president sat down to read to the children. Unfortunately, before Obama could finish the 338-word story, a swarm of bees came in for the kill.

Not for nothing, as they say in Brooklyn, but did you ever notice that the president attracts ‘wild things’ like bugs, rats and, on more than one occasion, buzzard-sized flies?

This time, the same guy who reassured America that “If you like your health care plan, you’ll be able to keep your health care plan” attempted to calm the children dodging the dive-bombing bees with the comforting words, “Oh no, it’s a bee. That’s OK, guys. Bees are good, they won’t land on you. They won’t sting you, they’ll be OK.”

That’s right, while Kenyan Christians massacred by the Somali-based al-Shabab terror group were being buried and Iran restated their commitment to the destruction of Israel as being “non-negotiable,” Barack Obama spent a busy Monday morning quelling the anxiety of children being menaced by bees.

Clearly ignoring the president’s insistence that bees, like ISIS, are just harmless JV team players, the children continued squealing, which inspired the president to kick it up a notch, yelling, “Hold on! Hold on! You guys are wild things! You’re not supposed to be scared of bees when you’re a wild thing!”

If this same group of kids realized that six years earlier the guy telling them not to be afraid of bees was the same person who would have enthusiastically funded the termination of their lives, it wouldn’t be bees the frightened children would have been stampeding to avoid.

Nevertheless, to reinforce the belief that bees notorious for stinging don’t sting, America’s most famous raconteur proved his point with a story about a badly behaved lad who, after being sent to bed without supper, dresses in a wolf costume.

Maybe the president finds “Where the Wild Things Are” inspiring because it reminds him of his own fantastical journey into the make-believe world of “Hope and Change.”

Think of it! Like America, Max’s room “fundamentally transforms” into a jungle. Obama flies on Air Force One and Max sails to an island populated with malicious beasts called Wild Things.

Obama bullies politicians and Max intimidates creatures.  But above all, similar to Barack Obama, Max is eventually acknowledged as the king of Wild Things who, before returning home to his supper, spends all his time cavorting with his subjects.

So that was Easter 2015 at the White House.  Before subjecting the kids to the excruciating sight of Michelle shaking her groove thing to “Uptown Funk” on the holiest of all Christian holidays, Barack Obama reaffirmed his empathetic nature by referring to small children terrified by a swarm of attacking bees as “Wild Things.”
