Obama Shutting Down Mt. Rushmore

Stolen from somewhere:

The Retaliatory, Modus Operandi of Barack Obama

Obama has never let me down. First some housekeeping flavored with a little personal history. From the time when my memories begin, my siblings and I were raised and encouraged to seek and form opinions. We garner our opinions through intelligence and experience. Reading, listening, and looking at history to see what works and what doesn't. That was the fertile soil of my youth. So most often and quite predictably, my beliefs and opinions about life are the direct result of my observations, experiences, and education. This is the place where I share them. You are never required to agree. A few weeks ago, I asked my girlfriend why some people seem so highly offended when confronted with opinionated people. I have never, ever, viewed someone else's opinion as something I had to believe nor does someone's opinion really bother me with a few exceptions. However, I have learned some of what I know because people were willing to share an opinion with me. I have spent my lif

This is how we do it in America. «  When an American Company Redomiciles to the Cayman Islands, What Lesson Should We Learn? Brutal and Funny Anti-Obama Video  » If Raising the Debt Ceiling and Issuing More Debt Was the Way To Preserve America’s Credit Rating, that Means… August 20, 2011 by  Dan Mitchell …Well, I’m not sure what it means. But it sure doesn’t make sense when you look at the big picture. A credit card company wouldn’t increase a deadbeat’s credit limit, so why is it a sign of fiscal prudence to give Uncle Sam more borrowing authority? That being said, I never thought it was realistic to  block a debt limit increase . Indeed, I fully  expected an unsatisfactory result . But this cartoon is a pretty good summary of how Washington thinks.

Aren't We (The U.S.) About Due for Another Credit Downgrade?

In Aug. of 2011, Standard and Poors did something they had never done. They downgraded U.S. debt from AAA to AA+. Egan Jones downgraded the U.S. even further and for their efforts the United States Government dba as the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) decided to initiate an action against Egan Jones. Two weeks after the April, 2012 Egan-Jones second downgrade to AA, SEC voted to bring administrative action against that firm regarding years-old activity. Mr. Egan said, "We are not going to be intimidated by anybody from issuing timely, accurate ratings." [34] Then the United States Government also filed a 5 billion dollar lawsuit against Standard and Poors- coincidentally after they downgraded government debt also.   This is the type of retaliatory and bullying behavior that our

CNBC Quickly Becoming the First Tabloid Network

When exactly did the media lose it's objectivity? Today I had to take a little drive up into the mountains and I spent the entire trip listening to the commentators at CNBC on satellite radio. The entire hour and a half that I listened to CNBC- they devoted to criticizing the House Republicans. Any guest that CNBC brought on the show, who even remotely suggested that the Democrats were partially responsible for the pending government shutdown, were promptly interrupted and verbally assaulted. There was even a guest or two that suggested a government shutdown would be good for the stock market and that a sell off would present a buying opportunity. At no time in the one and a half hours I listened, did any CNBC commentator take the side of the House. I am not kidding. Listening to this network is like reading Huffington Post. Any professionalism or class has long since been removed. CNBC is still minority owned by GE with CEO Jeffrey Immelt, Obama's business czar. Ob

You Must Be a Democrat....

clipped from CNN... A woman in a hot air balloon realized she was lost. She lowered altitude and spotted a man in a boat below. She shouted to him, "Excuse me, can you help me? I promised a friend I would meet him an hour ago, but I don't know where I am!" The man consulted his portable GPS and replied, "You're in a hot air balloon approximately 30 feet above sea level. You are 31 degrees, 14.97 minutes north latitude and 100 degrees, 49.09 minutes west longitude." She rolled her eyes and said, "You must be a Republican." "I am," replied the man. "How did you guess?" "Well," answered the balloonist, "everything you told me is technically correct, but I have no idea what to make of your information, and I'm still lost. Frankly, you've not been much help to me." The man smiled and responded, "You must be a Democrat." "I am," replied the balloonist. "How did you know?
