If he’s supposed to be Superman, where’s the cape? The original inventors of Superman, Siegel and Shuster, created the caped hero to right wrongs, and fight for social justice and against tyranny. That sounds about right. But still no cape.
And Superman was quite secretive; he pretended to be a mild mannered reporter, and acted pretty much like a dolt at times. Maybe that’s the Superman they think he is; a capeless dolt. Of course when Superman heard the victim’s cry for help, he rushed into the nearest phone booth, and voila! He zoomed out in his wonderful Big S outfit with the cape flying behind him. Once again justice would be served.
I am really confused as to why Republican Congressmen think President Obama is Superman. Well, maybe you haven’t heard that story yet. So here it is. The President is totally in charge of and fully aware of every email, agency policy, and federal employee’s actions. So he has to be Superman. Otherwise how could he do that? Well, if he isn’t able to do all that, then why do the Congressmen keep saying he can?
Look at the IRS stories in the news. President Obama fired the IRS commissioner, when the Treasury Inspector General reported to the Congress that conservative groups who had applied for tax exempt status were being screened out. It wasn’t just southern girls and boys who wanted to play politics under the guise of getting out of paying taxes, the IRS also targeted Jewish groups. Any applicant who had certain key words in their application were screened out, or at least carefully looked at. The President said the whole thing was “inexcusable” and “outrageous”.
What we are talking about is an influx of applicants for tax exemption after the U.S. Supreme Court made a ruling in 2010. This ruling was known as Citizens United, and greatly expanded the ability of unions, corporations, and other organizations to participate in election spending. This is about people paying no taxes while being able to raise money and pour it into election campaigns. Of course you won’t hear about that in the Congressional hearings unless the voice of reason is somehow able to be heard. Don’t hold your breath.
Funny thing about the IRS commissioner who President Obama fired – he was appointed by George W. Bush. But when you are Superman, well that kind of information doesn’t matter. It must be Superman’s fault. He’s in charge of righting wrongs, working for social justice, and shutting out tyranny. I am really beginning to believe it’s the cape thing. He doesn’t have one. I think that is what keeps Obama from being able to know everything that might be amiss, and fix it all without help from Congress. I may have to start my own 501© (4) organization to get the Hero a cape. He’s going to need it.
