The first cup of coffee hadn't hit the bottom of their cups yesterday until Billy Roy Mitchum, local C&W performer whose voice and stage presence would make any vineyard proud as it just gets better and better while semi-aging, posed the big question to Aunt Martha, local resident librarian and word expert, "What is the definition of TREASON?"
Aunt Martha relishes puzzles, quizzes, and challenges while not being completely upset about gaining the limelight. "Treason is the crime of of doing something that could cause danger to your country, such as helping its enemies during a war."
Well the noise was deafening as the folks pulled their chairs toward B.M. being he is the unofficial Chairman and all, "Some months ago I posed the question 'who will be the first big time political leader to speak the obvious by calling our President a Socialist', and as we heard last week, Newt clearly spoke the obvious in his new book labeling Obama a Secular-Socialist. Not as clear and obvious, but a real possibility is that someone will come forward in the not so distant future, and ask if our own President has crossed the line in a treasonous way?"
Lighting Sledge, world class fisherman and legendary enjoyer of life, broke the silence that followed B.M.'s profundity, "What events would make you even consider such an unimaginable thing in these United States of ours?"
"Well, if someone was infiltrating your country illegally by allowing more than 10 million people, including drug cartels and Islamic Jihadist Terrorists, would you think this might meet the definition of 'doing something that causes danger to your country?' Just last week for the first time (at least to this cowboy's knowledge), a foreign head of state (that being Mexico) who is promoting an illegal, and often dangerous invasion of America came to our country, met with our president, and, from the White House itself, received our president's public support for that invasion. This same Mexican bozo spoke to Congress and received a standing ovation from its Democratic members for his country's war on America's borders while the Republicans sat there on their hands like stumps on logs. I guess we are supposed to be pleased that they didn't applaud as well. Hell this guy, even received a standing ovation from the Democratic members of Congress when he criticized the citizens of Arizona for daring to try to fashion a defense of their part of the American-Mexican border. All the while he was supported by statements of our own president, attorney general, and secretary of homeland defense. And of course this is the attorney general who hasn't read the Arizona bill. Eric Holder's astonishing admission was completely ignored by ABC, CBS, NBC, NPR, The New York Times, The Washington Post, USA Today, Los Angeles Times, The Associated Press, Time or Newsweek, according to Brent Bozell of the Media Research Center."
And here came Butch Jackson who is a little slow suffering from some recent medical issues, "Any sane person would ask themselves this president's motive, and yet it is as clear as the bugs on your windshield, this Socialist must get re-elected to pass his extreme policies of transforming America into a Socialist State. He needs the Mexican vote plus other traditional Democratic voters. He and his machine will use the word DISCRIMINATION everywhere possible to appeal to feminists, gays, and blacks. And this next week he is going to try to make up with Israel, even against his favorite Middle East Muslims, to tuck in the Jewish vote. I have never understood why they vote Democrat when it's only the Republicans that stand between Israel and annihilation. Reid/Pelosi will push the elimination in the military of the Don't Ask Don't Tell policy through this week to try to get that voter group to the polls in November."
Butch is rolling downhill now, "Let's be honest, the real danger to America is not presidential impostors like Barack Hussein Obama but self centered and ignorant voters capable of putting someone like him in office. It will be far easier to repair the dangers of the Obama presidency than it will to repair the common sense and good judgment of voters who have put such a man in office. The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Obama, who is a mere symptom of what is threatening America . Blaming Obama doesn't solve today's problem of 'single issue' voters who buy the idiot pitchs that pour from the Secular Socialist Machine."
And of course B.M. closed the coffee proceedings for the day, "I think what you are saying, Butch, is the Republic can survive a Barack Obama, who is, after all, merely an ambitious fool. It is less likely to survive a whole bunch of fools from drugstores and Dairy Queens around the country such as those who made him their president."
Think about it,
