I guess Chris Rock was supposed to be using his celebrity to seriously promote and advance President Obama’s gun controlling proclivities, but surely he must have been trying out a new comedy act. Like many liberals, Rock simply doesn’t get it. The President of the United States is not our daddy, as he asserted today. Nor is the First Lady our mama. The President is also not our boss. The reverse is actually true; presidents are elected to represent–to serve–the people. As American patriots well know, we the people are not going to blindly follow a politician, for that’s the stuff cults are made of.

The President of the United States is, you know, our boss. But he is also, you know…the President and the First Lady are kinda like the mom and dad of the country. And when your dad says something, you listen. And when you don’t, it will usually bite you in the ass later on. So, I’m here to support the President.
In all fairness to the comedian, he didn’t have a clear mind while making those comments; he was under the influence–of Kool Aid. It’s interesting that he wasn’t so committed to “honour[ing] thy father and thy mother” when President Bush occupied Pennsylvania Avenue. But I digress.
I respect Americans who understand the proper role of government–who support liberty, not liberals. For that matter, I don’t have much respect for those who support so-called conservatives over common sense either. As far as I can see, there’s not a more consistent voice for liberty than Governor Palin. We need her, and other like-minded people, to continue that stand for our nation because, unfortunately, more and more people are starting to think like Chris Rock. What a joke. But it ain’t funny.
Chris Rock can keep his daddy; I’ll stick with our Founding Fathers.
