Regardless of whomever you choose to blame for the economic mess our country is in, you cannot ignore the facts.
Obama is spending our country in to a very dark hole....hold on to your seat though, you ain't seen nothin' yet!
Just to state a few facts:
Unemployment rate hits 25 year high at 8.1% - 651,000 jobs lost in February
Stock market has lost more than 50% in the past 12 months. 20% of that loss has occurred since Obama took office.
Here's a small sampling of what the latest spending package contains:
- $200,000 - tattoo removal in Los Angeles
- $400,000 - to train teachers on bullying
- $1.8 MILLION - to study effect of swine odor on the environment.....WHAT??!!
No earmarks? Whatever, Obama.
Then there is the 'housing stimulus/recovery/spending bill'. He (BO) says he will help 'up to 9 million homeowners keep their house.' I call Bull****!!
In order to qualify for the program, you must provide tax returns, 2 pay stubs, affidavit of financial hardship...blah, blah, blah. Most of those that need help dont even HAVE a job...makes it tough to provide paystubs, doesn't it?
How about GM? We bail them out, we bail them out, they lay off more than 47,000 workers, now they'll probably have to file bankruptcy. Yeah, should of let them go belly up months ago.
Banks. Same story. We bailed them out. They're still dying....of course, they're hoarding the billions we've given them. I say 'we', because it is after all, OUR tax dollars.
AIG. Again, same song and dance. We bailed them out, and again, and three times. Looks like they may go bye-bye, too.
They were all 'too big to fail', remember? Are they not too big to fail now?
Like I said, it all makes my head spin. By the time Obama has worked his 'black magic', we will have nationalized health care, nationalized banks, and there will be no middle class average joe. Hmmm.....oh, YEAH, it's called Socialism.
Remember what Thomas Jefferson said: "A Government that is big enough to give you everything, is big enough to take it all away."
