SWAC Girl is Right!!!

Some would say that this post by SWAC Girl (Lynn Mitchell) about Zicam being pulled off the shelf from a secret order to the FDA by President Obama because they advertise on the Rush Limbaugh's show is crazy talk.

I disagree.

In fact, I saw an example this year of President Obama overstepping his bounds but I was too afraid to step up and say anything because I didn't want to be branded as a conspiracy theory whackjob. I will keep silent no more. Thank you SWAC Girl.

First, Jon Voight was an outspoken critic of Barack Obama during the 2008 campaign for President. Voight campaigned across the country for Republican candidate John McCain.

Second, Hollywood is a liberal elite institution.

Bear with me as I work through this.

We've all heard of the television show "24" where Jack Bauer (Kiefer Sutherland) takes on bad guys and tries to save the country. It's one of the most popular shows on television. Jon Voight played Jonas Hodges, the head of "Starkwood". Hodges was arrested after it was found out that he was behind the conspiracy to destroy the country.

Well it just so happens that Jonas Hodges was supposed to be placed in protective custody. But he was killed in a car explosion.

Don't you see? Voight was a critic of Obama. Obama must have placed a call to some executives in Hollywood. Voight's character was killed off on "24". Is this the nanny state government at work again? Does Obama control everything from cold remedies to television characters?

Glad that I will be able to purchase Season 7 of "24" and watch Voight over and over again. Meanwhile, this country will have to go without another conservative in a major television role. The question remains in my mind...did this happen because Jon Voight spoke against Obama?
