President Obama is talking about more illegal and unconstitutional Executive Orders to make everything right with the world. With the stroke of the pen he will give half off us a dose of Quickie Nirvana.
If you’ve never watched “The Rockford Files,” then you have missed some of the greatest social commentary ever to come out of a sit-com. One of the best episodes is when Jim Rockford, played by James Garner, teams up with a New Age seeker who’s all leftist talk and no real social consciousness. It’s called “Quickie Nirvana.” It was first broadcast November 11, 1977.
This particular scene reminds me of Obama and the Democrats. They talk about social justice and other leftist mumbo jumbo, but their worldview is parasitic and morally debilitating.
Here’s the dialog. The full video of the two-minute back and forth scene follows below. It’s profoundly funny but true. Be sure to watch the whole thing. It’s so right on. I would love to know who wrote it:
Rockford: What can you do, lady?
Jane: My consciousness doesn’t lend itself to problem solving like yours, okay! I’m into an alternative lifestyle. I’m a seeker after truth. Now what’s so wrong with that?
Rockford: You’re alternative lifestyle comes out of somebody else’s pocket. You mooch, you borrow, you hardly work, but it doesn’t go along with it there. They’re fascists, unmellow, competitive; all that love and freedom is just another way of saying me first!
Jane: It is not!
Rockford: Yes it is! You just don’t have a sense of responsibility, that’s all there is to it!
Jane: What I mean is I’m not into a structured living or accumulated things. I’m into my consciousness!
Rockford: Consciousness! You’re practically unconscious 24 hours a day! What you’re into is having someone else do you’re thinking for you. There’s Gordon Borchet, Baa Baa the Bhagavad Gita. Next it’s going to be Sam Levinson or Francis the Talking Mule for all I know. They have all the answers, right. Don’t you have any answers of your own?
There is nothing new under the Sun. What goes around comes around. Today’s Obamabots think they’ve discovered the way of Enlightenment that Government Saves. Baloney. Their worldview has been tried, weighed in the balances, and found wanting. Even so, they believe “Quickie Nirvana” can be found with the stroke of a president’s pen.
