Seems like we have far too many irreconcilable differences to resolve any these days.

General Stanley McCrystal was a liberal. Isn’t a liberal general an oxymoron? He hangs with a liberal journalist. The journalist gets him fired. Now we have justice, since more liberal journalists should get more liberals in pubic service fired, but we have irreconcilable differences between McCrystal and the journalists.

Chicago has a gun ban the Supreme Court says is unconstitutional. Mayor Daley has the biggest homicide rate in the country. He says it is because he can’t enforce a gun ban. But, he does enforce a gun ban, illegally. So, with an illegal gun ban, Chicago has the highest murder rate in the country. Irreconcilable differences.

In the business world most companies have a mandatory retirement age. As we age, we lose our edge and energy. We can’t keep the pace to get the goals we need to meet. In the Senate some stay on well into their 80’s and 90’s. Why? There is no pace and there are no goals. Irreconcilable differences.

Europe has to stop spending since they are broke and the European model of Socialism has grown too expensive. They can’t afford the pensions, free health care, union wages, etc. Obama wants both the US and Europe to spend more. Does he want to destroy the system of capitalism that has made us great, push us into the broken European model, make us into a socialistic failure? The majority of Americans don’t want that. Irreconcilable differences.

The poor people in Chicago want Wal-Mart stores. The unions don’t. The poor people have to drive or take buses to the suburbs to shop at WalMart and stretch their budgets. Unions and liberal politicians in Chicago say they are behind the poor. Irreconcilable differences.

Most Americans want the illegal immigration problem fixed. Most support the Arizona immigration law. The President wants the 12 million votes from the illegals here. He refuses to fix the problem. Irreconcilable differences.

Secretary of Homeland Security says they have arrested over 2,000 employers for hiring illegal aliens. The Secretary of Labor says illegals are entiltled to a minimum wage. Irreconcilable differences.

BP and the states affected by the oil spill want the help offered by foreign nations to help clean up the mess. The President wants to keep the unions happy. So, he won’t suspend the Jones act to let the help come in. Irreconcilable differences.

This just scratches the surface on what could be an almost endless list of irreconcilable differences. We could get into health care reform, financial reform, cap and trade, card check, debt, deficit, unemployment, new taxes, etc.

An angry country is like a bad marriage. There is a limit to the number of irreconcilable differences a country or a marriage can tolerate. Never in my lifetime have I seen the list get so long and the people so upset. Hence, we have the Tea Party.

We have a President and a Congress creating this unrest. A President who ran on a platform of compromise and bipartisanship. A President who seems to be in a hurry to add to the list. A marriage like this ends in divorce. A country like this will vote people out of office for doing this. We will see in November.
