GM is about to file bankruptcy, laying off 20,000 workers.
Unemployment figures keep rising to the tune of 600,000 per MONTH.
Foreclosures rise to record numbers, affecting 1 in 8 homeowners.
North Korea continues to test missiles (even after our scolding....ha)
The war continues in Iraq.
The war continues in Afghanistan.
Not to say the Obamas shouldn't have a night together, obviously. Point is, our country is in the toilet economically, Obama himself says we 'need to tighten our belts', and what about carbon emissions? The hypocrisy speaks volumes. But then again, I am not surprised.
Maybe they should have done it on their own dime, and not ours.
Sharia Law = Islam Law.
For a little background on Somali and insight (warning: graphic) click on the link below.
As Islam grows in strength with millions around the world...YES, even in OUR country....Sharia Law always follows... changing the way muslims will treat non believers, under their laws (Sharia).
You need only to look to Britain to see how an independent country has become an Islam stronghold.
Mr. Obama invited health industry leaders to the White House on Monday to trumpet their cost-control commitments.
After meeting with six major health care organizations, Mr. Obama hailed their cost-cutting promise as historic.
“These groups are voluntarily coming together to make an unprecedented commitment,” Mr. Obama said. “Over the next 10 years, from 2010 to 2019, they are pledging to cut the rate of growth of national health care spending by 1.5 percentage points each year — an amount that’s equal to over $2 trillion.”
NOT SO FAST PINOCCHI-O-BAMA!!!
Health care leaders who attended the meeting have a different interpretation. They say they agreed to slow health spending in a more gradual way and did not pledge specific year-by-year cuts.
“There’s been a lot of misunderstanding that has caused a lot of consternation among our members,” said Richard J. Umbdenstock, the president of the American Hospital Association. “I’ve spent the better part of the last three days trying to deal with it.”
Yeah. "Pick your target, freeze it, personalize it, polarize it." - Saul Alinsky -O's playbook.
DuhObama has now done a 180...and will fight to NOT release the torture photos....He has now decided that in releasing the photos it could prove to be a national threat to our country's security.
Yeah, no kidding. I'm glad to see he is trying to do the right thing. However, he is 'fighting' to not release the photos? Why not just sign an Executive Order, and be done with it, if it is what he truly believes? I suspect this story is not over.
Obama, Obama, Obama. "I will not raise taxes on anything...." ---Remember that?
You didn't believe him now, did you? ---You were a fool then.
They have to raise the money to pay for all his spending somehow. What did the liberals think he was going to do? Oh, never mind. Now I remember. Yes. He was just going to tax the wealthy (those making $250K or more). First off, for all you blubbering idiots...if you thought for one second he would stop there, you are my friend, a total and complete ignorant fool. Secondly, Obamassiah's spending will not stop until our country is broke and bankrupt.
Better buckle up, it's going to be a long ride.......all the way down.
Here is an excerpt---
A second element, which would raise $10 billion over 10 years, would require businesses and others who make payments to corporations to report such payments to the Internal Revenue Service. Under current law, payments to individuals are required to be reported on a 1099 form, but no such requirements exist for similar payments to corporations. The goal is to make sure that the recipient corporations report all their taxable income.
If you pay premiums to your employer for health insurance benefits....under Obama's plan you would pay taxes on the premiums you pay. Not only would you be paying for your own health insurance benefits, you would also be paying for those without health insurance.
Sweet, right? Remember when your worthless president said that those of you with health insurance could keep your insurance under his plan? The good news is, you could keep your own benefits. The bad news is ....obvious. You get to pay taxes on it to help pay for everyone else without insurance. Hahhaha. You didn't honestly believe it truly would be free, did you?WARNING...WARNING..WARNING.. SOCIALIZED MEDICINE IS COMING.
I have copied and pasted a couple comments from others regarding this story. Please read them.
"Nationalized health care does not and will not work. I lived in the UK for 18 months, so I speak from experience. A friend of ours had to wait 5 years (no exaggeration) for a tonsillectomy. Recently, the National Health Service announced it will not provide potentially life-savings drugs to cancer patients because it is too costly. So to those of you who think the government owes you anything, forget it. Socialism is nothing but a mausoleum: Looks great on the outside, but it's full of death and decay. "
"Corporations don't pay taxes - they pass all that cost on to the people. So this is a tax on all of us. Don't be fooled. Socialism does not work. The people with money that are productive will stop working and stop spending and stop hiring. Economics 101. "
Yup! What they said.
Labor costs in those countries are far lower. While paying a U.S. autoworker with benefits costs about $54 an hour, a South Korean worker earns about $22 an hour, a Mexican worker earns less than $10 an hour and some Chinese workers can earn as little as $3 an hour, industry sources said.
But, hey, no worries. Obama promised to 'save and create' 5 million jobs. Just sit back, relax, and pour yourself some more Kool-Aid. I'm sure your savior will make good on his promise.
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner said on Friday that the Obama administration will provide "substantial support" to troubled financial firm GMAC in the form of more capital.
"We're going to provide substantial support to GMAC," Geithner said in an interview with Reuters Television.
"It's likely, again, that GMAC will need to take additional capital from the government and we'll be prepared to provide that."The Treasury and U.S. banking regulators said on Thursday that GMAC needs to raise $11.5 billion to fill a capital hole it could face if the economy were to take a turn for the worse.
Of course, GMAC will be providing financing for vehicles purchased under the new Obama controlled Congressional Motors, so of course..give 'em the $11.5 billion.
Sick. Just sick. Keep drinkin' the Kool-Aid.
Plans have been in the works for over four years now to build a memorial honoring the victims of Flight 93 from September 11, 2001. Flight 93 went down in a Pennsylvania field after heroic passengers took over the terrorists onboard, which resulted in the plane crashing, killing all aboard.
A couple things struck me as odd this morning when I read the article (click on title to see it). The Federal Government will be taking almost 500 acres of the 2000 acres needed for the memorial from the private landowners. Taking? I call it stealing, but anyway, from here, I was curious what this memorial was about, which led me to the National Park Service's website:
(you can read lots of lovely words used to describe what appears will be a lovely tribute) .
Hmmm. Whenever the Government is involved, things are generally not 'lovely'. So, I went looking for more, which led me to gatewaypundit's blog and a blog by the widow of a flight 93 passenger. Turns out, many are quite displeased with the design of the memorial. Reason?
The design of the memorial is strikingly similar to this:
Wikipedia says this:
The star and crescent historically was a Greek symbol, first used for the city of Byzantium in pre-Christian times and then wider in the Hellenistic world.  Later when they invaded the Eastern Roman Empire the Ottomans copied it and it later became associated with Islam in general, though it continued to be used by the Greeks until the final sack of Constantinople by the Turks. Now its popularity among Muslims makes it comparable to the Christian cross and the Star of David. A number of Muslim-majority nations, such as Algeria, Tunisia, Comoros, Mauritania, Malaysia, Pakistan, Maldives, Azerbaijan, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan and non-sovereign nations such as East Turkestan use it on their national flag.
I found the following picture. See anything similiar with the proposed memorial and the crescent/star representing Islam?
As you read further, the group of trees proposed would
represent the star, and when standing in the center, you would be facing mecca.
"This Mecca-orientation makes the giant crescent a mihrab, the Mecca-direction indicator around which every mosque is built."
Not only is the Government stealing 500 acres of private land, but they are also building a memorial that resembles the crescent and star, a symbol of Islam. Circle of embrace? I think not! Crescent of Embrace? Yes. This deserves far more attention than it is getting.
President Bush, from 2001-2008 had always cleared his calendar for National Prayer Day.
Could be, there are no photos!
Could be, Sasha, Malia and the little dog Bo were going for a joyride with Air Force One. Were the girls actually in school that day?
Could be, the big dog BO thought it would be fabulous to fly Air Force One over Manhattan in honor of his first 100 days in office.
I truly hope this story doesn't die. We have a right to see the supposed photos..after all, it was our taxpayer money. We also have a right to know the truth.
Obama promised transparency. Yup, I can see right through him....and it's not a pretty sight.
These crazies are standing on a public street in New York City, stomping on OUR U.S. FLAG and spewing hateful crap.....and we don't want to offend? Shameful. I find it interesting that the news media does not show this crap.
Jeep Run on a sunny Sunday
There were about 7 jeeps on the run
Our 'not too pretty to get dirty' Jeep got pretty dirty
She came home covered in clumps of mud from top to bottom after plowing through water, mud and yes, even snow! All but one jeep on this run had to be winced at one point.
This weekend there is a scheduled run described as going through a creek, brush, mud....sounds like my kind of fun!
Before you read below, check out Michelle Obama's new tennis shoes...from high end French fashion label Lavin...cost, oh, a mere $540.00. Okay, NOW read the news below. Go.
Here is part of the article: (click on title for entire story)
WASHINGTON (AP) -- Millions of Americans enjoying their small windfall from President Barack Obama's "Making Work Pay" tax credit are in for an unpleasant surprise next spring.
The government is going to want some of that money back.
The tax credit is supposed to provide up to $400 to individuals and $800 to married couples as part of the massive economic recovery package enacted in February. Most workers started receiving the credit through small increases in their paychecks in the past month.
But new tax withholding tables issued by the IRS could cause millions of taxpayers to get hundreds of dollars more than they are entitled to under the credit, money that will have to be repaid at tax time.
How does the saying go now? Oh yeah, 'They giveth with one hand, and taketh away with the other?' Well, something like that. Y'all thought your dear leader Obama d'man was giving you a tidy little increase in your paycheck, didn't you? Silly you....you didn't really actually BELIEVE it would be that simple, now did you?
Time to wake up from your dream of obama rainbows and unicorns....cuz you're gonna have to give the money back next year. Enjoy the $13 bucks a weeks while ya got it. And, it's only going to take you about 42 weeks to have enough for a pair of shoes just like ms. angry american MO. They are kind of cool looking, don't you agree?
And, then there are the deficit and debt numbers...President Bush was able to bring the US deficit down 3 of his 8 years in office: but check out the Obama years to come.
Hey, the numbers don't lie. Looks real pretty, doesn't it? I know, I know, we gotta pay for the mess Bush got us in to somehow, right? Well, despite the recession he inherited, 9-11, stock market scandals, Hurricane Katrina and two wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, the unemployment rate during the Bush years averaged out to 5.27%. Hmm..Obama's numbers not lookin' too good.
