Watching the nonstop commentaries on television about the debt ceiling debate only reinforces the reality that most people — including many perceived conservatives — still don’t get it. If they did, they would not allow themselves to be diverted by a political circus.
It amazes me how the vast majority of conservatives — both inside and outside of the media — still take Barack Obama seriously and believe he is desperately trying to save the United States from economic disaster. Don’t get me wrong. Obama wants to do what is right for America, but his vision of “right” is wealth redistribution on a massive scale carried out by an all-powerful Federal government.
As Obama continues to toy with Republicans over raising the debt ceiling, he is well aware that the continuation of his policies will destroy the U.S. economy beyond repair. I believe his strategy from the outset has been to follow the Saul Alinsky model: Win the Presidency through a semi-legitimate election, then tighten your grip over everything and everybody, move swiftly to create economic chaos, and use the chaos you’ve created to establish a dictatorship.
Now don’t go giving Obama too much credit for originality. He’s really just a slick and clever copycat. Getting elected and then using your powers to eliminate all competition is an old trick used by power-hungry thugs throughout history.
Of all the dictators over the past hundred years, I believe Obama’s rise to power mirrors that of Adolf Hitler’s more than anyone else. I know, I know… I can practically hear readers chuckling. Enslaved people throughout history have a propensity for chuckling — until they wake up one morning and find themselves in chains. So, by all means, feel free to chuckle — but do hear me out.Though most people don’t realize it, Hitler was legitimately chosen to be chancellor of Germany in 1933 by President Paul von Hindenburg. At his swearing-in ceremony, Hitler faithfully repeated the oath of office: “I will employ my strength for the welfare of the German people, protect the Constitution and laws of the German people, conscientiously discharge the duties imposed on me, and conduct my affairs of office impartially and with justice to everyone.”

I'm keeping my big Buick. I won't be crushed like a bug if I get hit
Some of these students had a GPA of 0.00 This kind of governmental predation is why the community suffers such abuse by people with political agendas. I am outraged by this and you should be too.
You wonder why there are no Jobs? It's the government. They have crushed any potential for Job Creation in this country. This mine operator has given up. Hundreds of people will now be out of work. THIS IS PROGRESS? Why do the dopes elected by the people not understand, government is the enemy of business therefore the enemy of Jobs. If you have a Job...thank GOD, if you don't; blame the dolts you elected.
The worst may still be ahead for housing – 3 million homes foreclosed on in the last three years with another 5 to 7 million foreclosures in the pipeline. One third of homeowners believe they are underwater. It's still not time to start to look at investing in residential real estate.
From Monday Night's Presidential Address to the nation:
“The deficit was on track to top $1 trillion the year I took office,” said Obama. “To make matters worse, the recession meant that there was less money coming in, and it required us to spend even more"
That's always worked out for me. When I lost my job some years ago, I ran up my credit cards faster...that worked out well didn't it? Sarcasm button off now...
The unemployment rate for all black men stands at 17 percent; An April study by the Economic Policy Institute reported the overall national jobless rate for high school graduates ages 16-24 is 22.5 percent, compared to 31.8 percent for black youth. Perhaps for youth...we could lose the minimum wage? It's just not helping. Unintended consequence.
Reminds me of the old superman comic conundrum...what happens when an unstoppable force meets an immovable object
If you’re the smartest person in your circle, you’re in the wrong circle, you’ve outgrown it, it’s time to move to the next level. It may be that people who are supposed to be contributing to you are pulling from you instead. Everybody’s making withdrawals and nobody’s making deposits. Pray about moving into places where you’ll grow and learn and be challenged again.~Bishop T D Jakes
The stock market needed an excuse to react to reality. What you are seeing is more based on overall weakness rather than anything having to do with the current debt ceiling debate and vote. Many countries with horrible credit ratings and deficits are very strong in the stock market. The two seem to be related and on the surface they are...but the underling fundamentals are very weak.
OK...everyone talks with great fondness for the Clinton years. The Clinton boom. The Clinton economy. I have an idea...lets roll back all spending to the level of the year 2000 (Clinton's last). I'll even take the tax rates. THEN FLATLINE THEM. No baseline budget increases. AND then CUT FROM THERE. That might bring some level of sanity to this argument.
How about this. Any year the budget is not balanced requires that all Senators, Representatives and the President in office that year must be fired and all new election be held for all the offices. AND incumbents can't run for the offices. That ought to settle the issue..oh and if you are turned out of office for this reason...you get zero pension or health care. I'll bet sanity would set in.
Jeffrey Immelt, the head of Barack Obama's highly touted "Jobs Council", is moving even more GE infrastructure to China. GE makes more medical-imaging machines than anyone else in the world, and now GE has announced that it "is moving the headquarters of its 115-year-old X-ray business to Beijing".
WHY STOP AT 54.5 MPG????? I mean, why not make it a thousand MPG? If the mandate gets it done, the President should just mandate that cars run on air. Not Practical you say? If you believe 54.5 is practical...you are just as gullible as he is.
Seems to me AK 47 equipped security guards on all public buildings and retail establishments would slow the booming copper theft and flash mob theft rings a bit. Just sayin...if it doesn't stop soon...that will start. Saw it in South America...will see it here as it gets nuts. Being a copper thief or flash mobster will shorten your life span substantially.
Saw this movie last night. Was surprised I liked it. A bit disturbing however
Peggy Noonan Writes writes in the Wall Street Journal. “Nobody loves Obama,” “This is amazing because every president has people who love him,” even Bill Clinton and George W. Bush on their worst days. But not Barack Obama. “His support is grim support,” because unlike Clinton and Bush, he never seems the least bit genuine.
“The secret of Mr. Obama is that he isn't really very good at politics … because he doesn't
Government is like Drunks. We need an AA leader to negotiate this. IF this were like curing drunks...Baseline Budgeting.. I normally drink 10% more each week than the last. If I cut back 20% I will only drink 8% more each week. That will result in a few weeks doubling my consumption of booze even though I claim I have made cuts. HOW ABOUT REAL CUTS? This is all phony
IF we don't get the government out of Business...we will all go under.

IS THIS a good idea?
Not good news
Why have famous musicians died at 27?
The news of Amy Winehouse's death is tragic not only due to the fact that she had so much talent, but also because she was young, and her death was most likely brought on by her addictions.
Amy Winehouse was 27 years old when she died. There are a number of other famous musicians who died at 27. Those musicians include:
The most dangerous place a Christian will ever find himself is not a strip club, massage parlor, opium den, crack house, casino, firefight, or locked in his office with a glowing screen; the most dangerous place just may be the padded pew that cradles his compromise Sunday after Sunday.
Throughout history, poverty is the normal condition of man. Advances which permit this norm to be exceeded — here and there, now and then — are the work of an extremely small minority, frequently despised, often condemned, and almost always opposed by all "right-thinking" people. Whenever this tiny minority is kept from creating, or are driven out of a society, the people then slip back into abject poverty.
Let’s see. You first have to hire someone you trust without some labor lawyer suing you for some type of discrimination.
Then you have OSHA to make sure your work place is safe. Then you have workman's compensation insurance, unemployment taxes, health insurance, liability insurance, now Obamacare.
Oh be careful not to be deemed to have a “hostile work environment”. Then you have to negotiate the labor laws. The Department of Labor is constantly cranking out regulation.
Then you get the pleasure of paying payroll taxes both state and federal along with the required filing of a multitude of payroll forms. Miss filing or paying these taxes and you will be crushed with interest and penalties.
Of course, you are competing with businesses that can hire at a fraction of the cost of American Labor and with very little regulations. In this economy, no one in their right mind is hiring into this unstable and declining economy.
If business turns down all you have to worry about is laying off workers. Of course your unemployment insurance tax will go up 200% for years. Then you only have to then worry about a wrongful termination law suit.

As we progress through the year 2011, I want to thank all of you for your educational e-mails over the past year. I am totally screwed up now and have little chance of recovery.
I no longer open a bathroom door without using a paper towel, or have the waitress put lemon slices in my ice water without worrying about the bacteria on the lemon peel.
I can’t use the remote in a hotel room because I don’t know what the last person was doing while flipping through the adult movie channels.
I can’t sit down on the hotel bedspread because I can only imagine what has happened on it since it was last washed.
I have trouble shaking hands with someone who has been driving because the number one pastime while driving alone is picking one’s nose.
Eating a little snack sends me on a guilt trip because I can only imagine how many gallons of trans fats I have consumed over the years.
I can’t touch any woman’s purse for fear she has placed it on the floor of a public bathroom.
I MUST SEND MY SPECIAL THANKS to whoever sent me the one about rat poop in the glue on envelopes because I now have to use a wet sponge with every envelope that needs sealing.
ALSO, now I have to scrub the top of every can I open for the same reason.
I no longer have any savings because I gave it to a sick girl (Penny Brown) who is about to die for the 1,387,258th time.
I no longer have any money, but that will change once I receive the $15,000 that Bill Gates/Microsoft and AOL are sending me for participating in their special e-mail program.
I no longer worry about my soul because I have 363,214 angels looking out for me, and St. Theresa’s Novena has granted my every wish.
I can’t have a drink in a bar because I’ll wake up in a bathtub full of ice with my kidneys gone.
I can’t eat at KFC because their chickens are actually horrible mutant freaks with no eyes, feet or feathers.
I can’t use cancer-causing deodorants even though I smell like a water buffalo on a hot day.
THANKS TO YOU I have learned that my prayers only get answered if I forward an e-mail to seven of my friends and make a wish within five minutes.
BECAUSE OF YOUR CONCERN, I no longer drink Coca Cola because it can remove toilet stains.
I no longer buy gas without taking someone along to watch the car so a serial killer doesn’t crawl in my back seat when I’m filling up.
I no longer drink Pepsi or Fanta since the people who make these products are atheists who refuse to put ‘Under God’ on their cans.
I no longer use Cling Wrap in the microwave because it causes seven different types of cancer.
AND THANKS FOR LETTING ME KNOW I can’t boil a cup of water in the microwave anymore because it will blow up in my face. Disfiguring me for life.
I no longer go to the movies because I could be pricked with a needle infected with AIDS when I sit down.
I no longer go to shopping malls because someone will drug me with a perfume sample and rob me.
I no longer receive packages from UPS or Fed Ex since they are actually Al Qaeda agents in disguise.
And I no longer answer the phone because someone will ask me to dial a number for which I will get a phone bill with calls to Jamaica , Uganda , Singapore , and Uzbekistan .
I no longer buy cookies from Neiman-Marcus since I now have their recipe.
THANKS TO YOU I can’t use anyone’s toilet but mine because a big black snake could be lurking under the seat and cause me instant death when it bites my butt.
AND THANKS TO YOUR GREAT ADVICE I can’t ever pick up $1.00 coin dropped in the parking lot because it probably was placed there by a sex molester waiting to grab me as I bend over.
I no longer drive my car because buying gas from some companies supports Al Qaeda, and buying gas from all the others supports South American dictators.
I can’t do any gardening because I’m afraid I’ll get bitten by the Violin Spider and my hand will fall off.
If you don’t send this e-mail to at least 144,000 people in the next 70 minutes, a large dove with diarrhea will land on your head at 5:00 p.m. tomorrow afternoon, and the fleas from 120 camels will infest your back, causing you to grow a hairy hump. I know this will occur because it actually happened to a friend of my next door neighbor’s ex-mother-in-law’s second husband’s cousin’s best friend’s beautician . . .
Oh, by the way.....
I now keep my toothbrush in the living room, because I was told by e-mail that water splashes over 6 ft. out of the toilet.
