How Stupid do you think we are: IRS/Green Lantern Edition

Abin Sur Yes…by the green beam of my ring…I see that you are hon­est! And the bat­tery has already selected you as one born with­out fear! So you pass both tests, Hal Jordan

Show­case #22 SOS Green Lantern Octo­ber 1959

If there is one thing that I’ve seen a lot of when I’ve been out writ­ing and report­ing these five years of the Obama Admin­is­tra­tion it’s fear.

I’ve gone to busi­nesses and heard about fear, fear of the econ­omy fear of Oba­macare. Fear on how they are ever going to draw cus­tomers to their busi­ness and how they are going to pay them­selves with their mar­gins cut to the bone.

I’ve been to the unem­ploy­ment offices and the fear is palat­able, par­tic­u­larly among older work­ers. Will I be able to find a job? Can I find any­thing? How will I pay my mort­gage, my rent?

I’ve talked to col­lege stu­dents and recent grads. They are ter­ri­fied. Where are the jobs? Will they find one, how can they pay their stu­dent loans? Will I every be able to move out of my mother’s house?

and finally there is fear among those who already have jobs.

They know there are dozens of peo­ple sim­ply wait­ing WAIT­ING for a chance to take their job. They see peo­ple come in every sin­gle day with appli­ca­tions and more impor­tantly they know their super­vi­sors have the exact same fear.

Each one of them knows they are just a sin­gle mis­take from being into that pool of unem­ployed work­ers, and what will their chances be of get­ting hired again if they’ve been let go?

That is the Obama era. That is the real­ity that Amer­i­cans are liv­ing in, the real­ity of FEAR!

And that brings us to the IRS scan­dal and the White House’s meme that doesn’t hold water.

The White House, their allies online and their enables in the press would have you believe that these peo­ple in the Cincin­nati IRS office acted alone.

We are to believe these peo­ple who see their neigh­bors and fam­i­lies worry every day about their future, these peo­ple who sit in posi­tions made secure by civil ser­vice rules, these civil ser­vants who have jobs shel­tered from the capri­cious whims of this econ­omy we are to believe these peo­ple were will­ing to risk those few jobs secure in the storm in order to make trou­ble for Tea Party oppo­nents of the left all over the country…

…and they were will­ing to do it with­out being told.

I’m sorry even Hal Jor­dan isn’t that fearless.

Showcase #22 SOS Green Lantern October 1959

If there is one thing that I’ve seen a lot of when I’ve been out writing and reporting these five years of the Obama Administration it’s fear.

I’ve gone to businesses and heard about fear, fear of the economy fear of Obamacare. Fear on how they are ever going to draw customers to their business and how they are going to pay themselves with their margins cut to the bone.

I’ve been to the unemployment offices and the fear is palatable, particularly among older workers. Will I be able to find a job? Can I find anything? How will I pay my mortgage, my rent?

I’ve talked to college students and recent grads. They are terrified. Where are the jobs? Will they find one, how can they pay their student loans? Will I every be able to move out of my mother’s house?

and finally there is fear among those who already have jobs.

They know there are dozens of people simply waiting WAITING for a chance to take their job. They see people come in every single day with applications and more importantly they know their supervisors have the exact same fear.

Each one of them knows they are just a single mistake from being into that pool of unemployed workers, and what will their chances be of getting hired again if they’ve been let go?

That is the Obama era. That is the reality that Americans are living in, the reality of FEAR!

And that brings us to the IRS scandal and the White House’s meme that doesn’t hold water.

The White House, their allies online and their enables in the press would have you believe that these people in the Cincinnati IRS office acted alone.

We are to believe these people who see their neighbors and families worry every day about their future, these people who sit in positions made secure by civil service rules, these civil servants who have jobs sheltered from the capricious whims of this economy we are to believe these people were willing to risk those few jobs secure in the storm in order to make trouble for Tea Party opponents of the left all over the country…

…and they were willing to do it without being told.

I’m sorry even Hal Jordan isn’t that fearless.
