A government of know nothings

I always knew it would finally come to this. Having a Leviathan so large and massive that really no one knows anything. No one even knows what they are doing, or why.

As for President Know Nothing, how could he know even most of what this behemoth government is doing? Does he even care? Sure he has people for that, but they do not know anything either.

So when we have an investigation, just ask the people, and they will tell you no one outside the department influenced their policy or actions. And they don’t know how or why it happened. (sounds like an old Laugh-In bit) Nope, then it is clear, there was no outside [political] influence on the IRS – so you can take that to the bank. (sorry bad pun)

The investigators can say there was no influence, but if no one knows anything, how can employees state with any certainty that there was no outside influence? Then how are we to believe that when we don’t know for sure? And how can the IG state with any surety there was no outside influence. He surely does not know either. No one does.

And that is the great thing about this huge out of control government. At least there is one thing they can all agree on: that no one could possibly know because of its size. Even David Axelrod states with surety that the government is so breathtakingly huge that Obama could not know what is going on. That’s a far cry from transparency and the accountable government we were sold.

“Part of being president is there’s so much beneath you that you can’t know because the government is so vast”, Axelrod said. (see video)

So if you want an excuse for no accountability from government, there it is.

Government “of, by and for the people” is now of, by and for Government. And when it is wrong or errors, don’t worry it will investigate itself. You can trust its integrity. It’s always good for its tab too. (another bad analogy, I know)

Steven Miller

Sarah Ingram

Barack Obama

Eric Holder

Douglas Shulman

Lois Lerner

Hillary Clinton

Just to name a few of the prominent Know Nothings

Lists? What lists?

Besides, if it does come to a hearing where they are accused of keeping information from Congress, they can do like Eric Holder and criticize the messenger.

“No, that’s what you typically do…. That is inappropriate and is too consistent with the way in which you conduct yourself as a member of Congress. It’s unacceptable and it’s shameful.” — Holder told Issa.

He can always revert back to the primary “I don’t know” answer that always works. And when he gets accused of hiding information or lying, he can always play the racism card. (that one never gets old)

    Excellent summation of how things are right now. Axelrod is another liar saying the government is too big for anyone to know anything. He’s right that the government is way too big.

    How convenient for everyone in this administration to say the government is so big that nobody knows anything.

    If it were not so dead serious that we’ve fallen into tyranny, it would almost look like a comic show. Nobody knows anyone who knows anything. How absurd is that!

    Let’s see, we have a president who knows nothing about what his underlings are doing and we have a US Attorney General who knows nothing about what is going on in his department either.

    If they can’t be thrown out for crimes that “nobody” knows about, they should be thrown out due to biggest amount of people who are incompetent or for the insanity going on.

      Pepp, I agree, And having a government too big is not the reason for their don’t-know-itis . Just a convenient excuse. Though it must be pretty darn bad because its the first time I heard them use the size of their prized Government for an excuse. What’s next, maybe they’ll say its his incompitence or his severe lack of experience? That would be as funny. But once in a great while they slip out a grain of truth, “government is so vast” but he’s making it a lot vaster.

      It is all grounds to oust them. Too bad we haven’t begun. I’m not sure, but I’m guessing on all their hatchet questionaires they were giving applicants, that “I don’t know” would not be considered an answer. 🙂


      • pepperhawk says:

        Bull, it is funny that Axelrod admitted that this government is too big. It is laughable, a grain of truth is right.

        Oh, I’m sure the tea party people were not allowed to put on their applications, “I don’t know”. You can imagine how that would go over.

    This government is exactly what your words painted above. And Axelrod took a chance admitting the truth of how expansive the federal government is, too big to know much about what goes one!

    But I’ve got to scream out against the opposing party too. They’ve done NOTHING in the first 4 years to stop this tyranny. And where’s Boehner now? I’ve seen him in ONE video clip asking who was going to jail for the IRS crimes.


    • bullright says:

      I completely agree, where are they. We have more to worry about than the next election…or fundraising.

      You’re exactly right. Now let’s see if the dog’s bark is worse than his bite?


      • tannngl says:

        I also want to know why they gave up on Fast and Furious? At first I thought Issa was doing his job but now I see he’s simply worrying about politics too. We need a Ted Cruz in each and every job. As an aside, did you see where McCain went after Apple, Inc along with Dem senators because they followed the tax code? His time in the senate should be over.


        • bullright says:

          Yea, I’d like to know what happened to F and F? They start out to fireworks and then whimper off the field. Issa seems to be on to the next thing and politics. (Some things are beyond) I like Cruz but they have to remember it is not about one man. He can’t do it all. I didn’t see it, though McCain jumping on a top name company shouldn’t surprise me. Now he managed to have conservatives and his darling media turn on him.


        • bullright says:

          Ah ha, thanks for the tip. Now that I glance at it, McCain seems to be attacking Rand Paul for defending Apple. He really has a thing for Rand and any uppity Senators. He’s turned rabid for crying out loud.


        • bullright says:

          Besides smelling an outright shakedown (Jesse Jackson style) of Apple,….

          I wonder where all their verbose venom is for GE. And its a lot closer to the Oval Office than Apple. Like right there smacking them in the face. But they are chirping crickets about that.


        • bullright says:

          Breitbart : “Just over 4 years ago, [McCain]was the standard bearer of the GOP against Barack Obama, but today he reserves his harshest criticism for fellow Republican Senators Paul and Cruz. ” — says a lot about McCain. I guess CNN and NBC have become a little too cold to Senator McCain. (time to bait them into his corner, again)

    Great overview of the situation Bull! Big gov gone wild (wouldn’t sell as well as Girls Gone Wild has) has become overly burdensome and completely self serving. Those asses pass laws we are suppose to follow, but they exempt themselves. That doesn’t need any explaining!

    They haven’t forgotten they work for us; they just don’t give a rats ass anymore, because we now know after two prez elections that over half the voters are either stupid asses, bums, only care about their little nitch…et al…and all the politicians have to do is play up to those groups come election time with a boatload of lies. Recent history has shown we have the dumbest ass voters in the entire history of our nation.

    The Repukes are just as guilty as the Traitor Party, because no one in Dipshit City is doing a damn thing to stop this unlawful, out of control, traitor administration. The DC politicians have started their own elite union and all of them are members. Guys like Rand Paul are way too far and in between.

    Our founders fought a war many years ago and a big part of it was taxation without representation. Well; it’s obvious taxation with representation isn’t a damn bit better (that’s an analogy of the bigger picture).


    • bullright says:

      Dave, it is all the above. We do have an elite ruling class. They couldn’t care less what the undead Americans think. They took self-serving to a whole new stratosphere.

    Just had a real chuckle over Axelrod’s line: “so much is beneath you”– and Obama literally sees everything and everyone “beneath” him all right. While at the same time, nothing is really beneath him as far as dirty tactics.
