Cocaine Is Good For You
Cocaine Is Good For You ◊
By Edward Arbor ◊
Cocaine is good for you. You probably know cocaine as an illicit, addictive and destructive substance. But, did you know cocaine also has some very positive health benefits?
Cocaine the ENERGY SUPPLEMENT
Cocaine speeds up your heart-rate giving you extra energy for work and play. A little coke can kick you into overdrive for your next board presentation or your next all night rave.
Cocaine the APPETITE SUPPRESSANT
It also works as an appetite suppressant ready to assist you with pesky hunger pangs when trying to lose weight. Who doesn’t need a little help with weight loss?
Cocaine for MENTAL ACUITY
Finally, cocaine can boost your confidence, awareness and mental capacity. If you’ve had trouble carrying on a single conversation with just one “hot babe” under normal circumstances, you’ll appreciate how cocaine will up your game, turning the one-off, single-babe convo into full-on, multi-babe confabs, with ease.
If you’re still reading, weighing out the use of cocaine, as a health supplement only vs. cocaine as an addictive drug, odds are that you were wooed by President Obama’s DNC acceptance speech earlier this month. If any or all of these apply to you—you’re an idiot.
Cocaine is good for you, and, Barack Obama is going to
“rebuild the middle class from the inside out.”
Cocaine is good for you, and, Barack Obama is going to “rebuild the middle class from the inside out.” While I understand wishfully thinking cocaine use has an upside, I do not understand snorting Obama’s lines about rebuilding the middle class while simultaneously increasing the size and spending of the federal government.
I admit that Obama’s DNC speech was masterful. As usual, he owned his words making his speech believable—so long as you ignore the reality of the country’s current economic woes.
Realities missing from Obama’s speech? There were many.
Since brevity is the soul of wit, and you may still be hoping this article comes full circle with regard to snorting a little coke, I’ll only briefly mention some of the realities not mentioned in Obama’s speech.
For starters, there was no mention by the President of the unemployment rate over 8% for forty-three straight months (nearly four years). Worse still, real unemployment numbers (those leaving the unemployment rolls and the underemployed, neither of which is counted) are as high as 11.7% to 14.7% or higher. Also missing was mention of his statement in 2009, where declared he’d get unemployment would be below 8% or he’d be a one-term President.
No mention of the national debt increasing by $4.247 billion each day under Obama’s watch and by a total of more than $4 trillion during Obama’s first term. No mention of his 2008 promise to reduce the national debt while referencing former President Bush as “unpatriotic” for an increased debt of $4.9 trillion during the former President’s entire eight-year term.
Sure, the POTUS mentions the American dream…
relegated to the “basic bargain.”
No mention by the President of the American dream as defined by the constitution. Sure, the POTUS mentions the American dream, but as he did in his DNC speech, he does so by replacing the word “freedom” with his counterfeit for freedom, “fairness.” In Obama’s words the American dream has been relegated to a “basic bargain” of hard work paying off, responsibility being rewarded, and everyone getting a “fair shot,” doing their “fair share” and playing by the “same rules.” Obama’s “basic bargain” implies a magical guarantee of success based on effort and desire alone, with oversight by more government, more taxation and more spending.
Missing are the founding fathers’ words of freedom to pursuit happiness as defined by the individual, based on God-given inalienable rights, and ensured by limited government—health care, education, home ownership, marriage to whomever you love, et.al, notwithstanding.
Then there is the so called success of the GM bailout. Missing are the facts that to date, the actual cost of the GM bailout to taxpayers is over two billion dollars, and GM, contrary to reports, has not paid back the government loan. No mention either that in all likelihood, GM would still be in business today along with its thousands of jobs intact without the taxpayer bailout (a la United Airlines, Delta Airlines, WorldCom/MCI now Verizon, and many other major U.S. companies that are still in business after independent, corporate restructuring via bankruptcy).
Obama did mention foreign policy, the military and Obamacare. Yet, he failed to frame them as duplicitous foreign policy, sacking the military, and government takeover of healthcare that will prove more costly, more wasteful, and ultimately more broken than our current system. I could go on, as there is more that the President failed to detail correctly or failed to mention altogether.
…in case you’re still up for some big-time snorting…
enjoy the euphoria of Obama’s [lines] and
ignore the reality of his record.
Here is a link to the entire text of Obama’s lines in case you’re still up for some big-time snorting. While you’re there, enjoy the euphoria of Obama’s words and ignore the reality of his record. Like cocaine, Obama’s speech is all promise, all euphoria, and almost no hard realities.
Cocaine and another four years of Obama do have one thing very much in common—hangovers. Hangovers are reality and they’re always a bitch.
