In Orwellian worldview, Peace is War. It is the same in this president’s doublethink language. Unity is war against the GOPWords mean something. The only problem is getting people to agree to their meaning. According to the American Bar Association, there were 1,116, 967 licensed attorneys in June of 2006. The number rose to 1,128,729 by the end of 2006, and grew to 1,143,358 by the end of 2007. Number of lawyers for each state in those years can be found on "Lawyers By State" on the ABA Website.
Attorneys spend a significant amount of time massaging words and meaning into duplicitous bifurcated forks in the road that lead either to confusion or to improbability. Rarely does an attorney use words to lead to truth. Ultimately, words are tools used to persuade to an attorney’s point of view not for pursue of truth.
That is why I prefer most anyone other than an attorney for President.
This opinion may seem a bit overbroad, and forgive me if you are the exception to the paradigm. You may be someone who uses your skills of persuasion to champion truth. However even you must admit that you were taught to argue both sides of an argument whether right or wrong.
In fact right or wrong does not exist for must attorneys. For many attorneys all things are relative or as each one perceive his or her understanding of what is real.
In our litigious society, all is relative. Nothing is, as it seems. A simple constitutional matter such as governmental mandated healthcare, unconstitutional on its face can be declared both unconstitutional and constitutional according to Chief Justice John Roberts and made the law of the land in a surreal judgment that all but guaranteed the reelection of Barry Hussein Soetoro.
Which brings me to my point, the president in this inauguration speech spoke of unity. In fact he quoted the Declaration of Independence, “"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness."”
He continued, “Today we continue a never-ending journey, to bridge the meaning of those words with the realities of our time. For history tells us that while these truths may be self-evident, they have never been self-executing;”
Thereafter the president laid forth an agenda not for all Americans but the same agenda that he and his fellow progressives attempted to push forward in this first four years as president. And though in his second inaugural address he cloaked his Partisanship with the “royal we” throughout the speech he was really speaking to his Progressive base as reported by Tom Curry of MSNBC (see article).
Peter Baker of the NYTimes reports that the President was laying out a Liberal vision for America. (see article)
Michael Kinsley of Bloomberg describes the President’s speech as giving a Liberal’s definition of Rights (see article)
And David Corn of Mother Jones saw the president’s speech as a direct appeal to his sycophants to help him move his agenda this second term (see article)
To the uninformed or to the already Liberal minded person what they heard was a call for unity. However, to others the president’s speech was an in-yo-face promise to jam the rest of the Progressive agenda down the throats of dissenting Americans who do not share the same values or vision was Barry Hussein Soetoro and the Progressive Left.
Even at his moment of swearing on Lincoln’s bible President Soetoro became the anti-Lincoln. In president Lincoln's, second inaugural Lincoln sought to bind the wounds of our nation at the end of a divisive Civil War. President Lincoln said, “One-eighth of the whole population were colored slaves, not distributed generally over the Union, but localized in the southern part of it. These slaves constituted a peculiar and powerful interest. All knew that this interest was somehow the cause of the war.” He further remarked, “Fondly do we hope, fervently do we pray, that this mighty scourge of war may speedily pass away.”
“Yet, if God wills that it continue until all the wealth piled by the bondsman's two hundred and fifty years of unrequited toil shall be sunk, and until every drop of blood drawn with the lash shall be paid by another drawn with the sword, as was said three thousand years ago, so still it must be said "the judgments of the Lord are true and righteous altogether."
“With malice toward none, with charity for all, with firmness in the right as God gives us to see the right, let us strive on to finish the work we are in, to bind up the nation's wounds, to care for him who shall have borne the battle and for his widow and his orphan, to do all which may achieve and cherish a just and lasting peace among ourselves and with all nations.”
In contrast, President Soetoro inaugural address was a call to his Progressive constituents for a continuation if not an escalation of the Progressive ideological war against Conservatism and the GOP. This would be the equivalent of Lincoln calling on the North to completely destroy the South.(see full address)
This is the attitude that the president will promote over the next four years as he advances the ideologies of the Left, Global Warming, redistribution, homosexuality, illegal aliens voting in U.S. elections, voter fraud and voiding first and second amendment rights.
All of this he will attempt to do duplicitously as he speaks of unity just as he did in his first four years. He may well succeed this time because the majority of Americans do not understand that what the president says means something totally different to him than it does to them.
