I’m sure everyone had the opportunity to see the government stick its nose into more business where it doesn’t belong. I’m speaking specifically about the presentation of the Oscar for Best Picture at this year’s Academy Awards.
Everything was going just fine until the very last when all of a sudden we were transported to the White House where the First Lady then gave a poisoned speech about how important the entertainment industry is to each and every American regardless of our race, social standing, yada yada yada…IT ISN’T!
Our constitution clearly depicts a limited government, especially the Federal government. Seeing this government figurehead slip her way into our personal lives by pretending she is just one of us turned my stomach. This may sound trivial but I didn’t think it was appropriate.
I don’t want my President to just be one of the boys. I don’t want the government to continue to weasel its way into my private life or into the sanctity of my home. The government is not an omniscient being. It is a group of mostly arrogant, undisciplined, egomaniacs that can’t even run their own lives, let alone your’s or mine.
I saw this move between the entertainment industry and the White House as an affront to the very people it is established to protect and to serve. Maybe you saw it another way. I didn’t.
Protect us from foreign enemies and stay out of our industries, our churches, and our personal lives.
