Oxymoron is a word used to describe a phrase in which two words of contradictory meaning are used together for special effect.
As an example: "wise fool" or: “It’s so cold I saw a politician with their hands in their own pockets”! It could be an expression that contains words with opposite meanings, for example “a bitter sweet experience”. As I look at this word I can’t help but think of Obama, the Supreme Court Jesters and Congress.
The Supreme Court of the United States can rule that lower courts cannot display the 10 Commandments in their courtroom, while sitting in front of a display of the 10 Commandments.
That’s an oxymoron.
You can get arrested for expired tags on your car but not for being in the country illegally.
That’s an oxymoron.
Government believes that the best way to eradicate trillions of dollars of debt is to spend trillions more of our money. That’s an oxymoron.
Hard work and success are rewarded with higher taxes and government intrusion, while some slothful, lazy behavior is rewarded with EBT cards, WIC checks, Medicaid, subsidized housing, and free cell phones. That’s an oxymoron.
The government's plan for getting people back to work is to provide 99 weeks of unemployment checks (to not work). That’s an oxymoron.
Politicians think that stripping away the amendments to the constitution is really protecting the rights of the people. That’s an oxymoron.
Being stripped of the ability to defend yourself makes you "safe". That’s an oxymoron.
You pay your mortgage faithfully, denying yourself the newest big screen TV while your neighbor defaults on his mortgage (while buying iPhones, TV's and new cars) and the government forgives his debt and reduces his mortgage (with your tax dollars). That’s an oxymoron.
We send Billions in Foreign-aid to Mideast Muslim countries while they burn our flag and kill our diplomats. Bitter-sweet! That’s an oxymoron.
Congress collects $3,400.00 per week minimum for life plus benefits while our wounded warriors struggle to pay their bills and navigate on their prosthetic limbs. That’s an oxymoron.
You have to have your parent’s signature to go on a school field trip but not to get an abortion. That’s an oxymoron.
As I watched Obama’s speech and elephant tears at the scene of the recent school shooting I wondered what he would think if these same children were killed in their mother’s womb instead of a classroom? How can he cry sympathetic tears at one tragic event and look the other way while signing legislation authorizing doctors to slaughter babies (or should I be politically correct and say Fetus) in their mother’s womb. Planned Parenthood's latest annual report shows it performed a record number of abortions (333,964 ) in the fiscal year 2011-2012 and received a record amount ($542 million) of taxpayer funding. Twenty-six killed in the school house pales in comparison to the 333,964 killed in the abortion rooms. That’s an oxymoron.
Where is the Pink Slime Media with its outrage and demands to outlaw scalpels as a dangerous weapon? That’s an oxymoron.
To put an end to gun violence Obama appointed Joe “Brain Dead” Biden to negotiate with the NRA and others to find a way to blame all gun owners and repeal the second amendment. Just scratch the “oxy” on this one!
In the coming New Year, 2013, both Groundhog Day and the State of the Union address could occur on the same day.
This is an ironic juxtaposition of events. One involves a meaningless ritual in which we look to an insignificant creature of little intelligence for prognostication.
The other involves a groundhog. And that’s an oxymoron.
