Bits and Pieces

“In the end, history is not kind to those who would deny Americans their basic economic security. Nobody remembers well those who stand in the way of America’s progress or our people,” Obama said.

 

“Economic security”? With millions out of work or underemployed, what does BO think history will say about him? One of our kids had a history assignment. The question asked; Which three Presidents from 1960 to present day would you consider the best and why? The three names that stood out, JFK, Reagan, and W. Bush. If one puts the “D” and “R” aside, and the junk politics, it all boils down to the psychology of the Presidency. Those three stand out because in times of hardship they gave us courage, made us believe we were an exceptional and good people, united us behind common causes. Under them and their leadership we became better people. We believed in ourselves and our greatness without becoming smug and arrogant, and we flourished as a people. That is their legacy. They stood for progress and their people. She told me she didn’t think her history teacher likes BO very much. I told her most historians don’t, we know better.

BO thinks he is building a huge legacy, he isn’t. Our people are divided and dispirited under his faux leadership. When he isn’t lying, he busies himself creating conflict among the people. For some strange reason he seems to think this is a good thing. He has told minorities to “fight their enemies” which boils down to hating on white people. How hateful and sad for all of us, we aren’t “the enemy”.  He talks about immigration reform, but it’s just talk. He talks about “focusing” on job creation, but it’s just talk. He talks a lot about a lot of things, mostly negative, but it’s all talk. He talks so much and does so little. Not one thing has resulted in a positive outcome and his administration is scandal ridden. Does BO really think his “stinkburger” of a Presidency will be lauded? Probably, but he is wrong. The only thing he will be remembered for is being “the first black President”. If that is considered an accomplishment of his Presidency, it will only be a historical footnote. America is still not going to work, real unemployment is at 12.8%.  Obamacare has made it worse not better for all of us.

 

Charles Koch had a terrific article in the WSJ. I’m Fighting to Restore a Free Society

Instead of fostering a system that enables people to help themselves, America is now saddled with a system that destroys value, raises costs, hinders innovation and relegates millions of citizens to a life of poverty, dependency and hopelessness. This is what happens when elected officials believe that people’s lives are better run by politicians and regulators than by the people themselves. Those in power fail to see that more government means less liberty, and liberty is the essence of what it means to be American. Love of liberty is the American ideal.

If more businesses (and elected officials) were to embrace a vision of creating real value for people in a principled way, our nation would be far better off—not just today, but for generations to come. I’m dedicated to fighting for that vision. I’m convinced most Americans believe it’s worth fighting for, too.

Harry Reid has been attacking the Koch brothers from the Senate floor quite a bit lately. Maybe he should take another look at the money influencing his own party. Soros spends huge amounts of cash to manipulate domestic and foreign policy. If Reid really gave a damn about the “big money influence” in politics, he need look no further than George Soros.

Mr. Soros‘ Open Society Foundations have annual assets of more than $3.5 billion, a pool from which he can dole out grants to pet projects, according to 2011 tax returns, the most recent on file for his charitable organizations.

David and Charles Koch, the billionaire brothers who often are cited for their conservative influence, had $308 million tied up in their foundation and institute in 2011.

Finally the media gets something right….Networks Snub Obama On Primetime Health Care Address

White House officials sought valuable primetime air for a rare, impromptu Tuesday night address to tout the accomplishment of signing up more than 7 million people under the Affordable Care Act.  [snip]

Three sources familiar with the request confirmed the White House asked for the primetime slot in their effort both to emphasize a bright moment following the challenging roll out and, more important, to try to reintroduce the country to a law that remains unpopular.

He did his victory dance but, the disapproval rating is still at 65%. Celebrating the sign up of 7.1 million people is nothing to crow about. After all under his “affordable” plan 5 or 6 million have lost their health insurance.   A Catastrophe Like No Other

 

Losing talent to satisfy a “gay advocacy group” that the IRS leaked information to. What an ugly hateful bunch of people, both the gay advocacy group and the IRS. Another part of BO’s “legacy”.

While gay activists applauded the move, many in the technology community lamented the departure of Eich, who invented the programming language Javascript and co-founded Mozilla.

And, how did gay groups know Eich donated money to the Proposition 8 Campaign?
Because the Obama IRS leaked this information to a gay-advocacy group in 2012.

The eight years of BO’s Presidency will be noted and the conclusion will not be one of “hope and change”.

Work is done

  1. Well done. The liberal media has done a great job selling us this presidency, unfortunately too many people bought it. Buyer’s remorse will live for a long time after the purchase.

    • Thanks! Buyer’s remorse will be on display in the 2014 elections… it might even spill over into 2016

  2. Next thing Dingy Harry will say is they haven’t paid taxes in 10 years…..he heard it on “good authority” doncha know. Yes, Durbin started that rumor about Romney after coming straight from the White House

    But one’s eyes should be wide open when people are singled out as un-American. What’s next? A Senate committee investigating such un-American activities as advocating free-market principles or pursuing capitalist endeavors?

    Of course, I’m kidding. That could never happen here, except it sort of already has. When Reid called the Kochs un-American, a powerful government official fired a shot across the bow of two private citizens who have acted within the law while contributing wealth to the economy through employment.

    Yes, it was bad when right-wingers called Obama un-American, but Obama is the most powerful man in the world and the rabble is just that. Reid owes the Kochs — and the American people — an apology.

  3. In other news……….the State Dept seems to have “misplaced” 6 billion of your dollars…funny how no one knows anything about anything…..ever.

  4. I think we have a good idea where that $ went; it takes a LOT of fabric to cover as big of a can as I’ve seen on the Moochelle Antoinette. I just saw another twitter parade of FLOTUS School Lunches. Several of them were just sandwiches and a carton of white milk on a bare multi- sectioned tray. Prisoners eat better. (Imagine what will happen when all those kids hit voting age.). If Mooch followed the dictates she espouses on others, she’d be rail thin.

    Obama WILL have a legacy though- I find myself saying all the time, “And I thought Carter was bad.” Old Jimmy has just been usurped as “the worst president of all time.”

    • You know, you might have something going there….who pays for the gowns she wears when attending “state functions”?

      I guess when she had to “diet” BO signed an “executive order” that everyone else had to as well. Bless her heart ….. 😀

  5. Backlash coming?

    “I think there is a gay mafia,” the Real Time host said during a panel discussion. “I think if you cross them, you do get whacked.”

    • Conservatives make the mistake of assuming that everyone is civic minded, and believe thst everyone will want to practice their duty to vote out of love of country; Liberals know that hogs come running if you spread corn, and that a few extra votes here and there won’t be noticed.
      They made the mistake of being overzealous in wanting to win at all costs. I don’t ever recall seeing this much voter fraud, and I canvessed with my mother as a little girl, shoving oldsters onto the voting bus with the same finesse as a subway attendant in Japan.
