President Obama is Responsible
for Our Fiscal Mess

American Thinker, by Neil Snyder

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 12/31/2012 1:44:14 PM

President Obama is responsible for our fiscal mess. I´m not exaggerating, and I´m not saying that simply because I think that Barack Obama is a terrible president, although I do think that he´s an awful president. I´m saying that because the president has had ample opportunity over the past four years to arrive at a compromise solution to our immediate fiscal problem and then to make headway toward dealing with our longer-term fiscal issues, but he has failed miserably. If the president had taken some of the advice of his own National Commission

Back in 2009 most companies pulled in their horns, meaning they stopped investing their money and turned into "banks" as a result of the Obamboozler and his ideas on "fundamentally changing the United States". They simply weren´t on board with investing money (this year) and having it worth less the next...and still aren´t! Now they face more regulation and higher taxes. (Now there´s a great incentive for growth/s)
The Obamboozler owns it; lock, stock and barrel.

Of course he owns it. But we all know it will never be reported as such.

Preaching to the choir Mr Snyder.

Jobs are the most important engine to move the economy. Obama has had 4 years to lessen the uncertainty that keeps businesses from expanding and adding jobs. Obama has done nothing in these 4 years to alleviate this uncertainty. In fact, it´s even worse. Obama does not want the economy to improve.

Yes, of course obama owns this complete mess, and he certainly enjoying every minute, every nuance of destruction to the nemesis of Mussies everywhere, The Great White Satan.

Big part of our problem is that it is completely politically incorrect to blame obama in public. On the business shows (CNBC), everybody MUST tapdance around the issue, make ultra-vague comments about the out of control spending in Washington. I have only seen one guy actually make the accusation that obama owns the problems, in a comment about the MSM and "knee-pads". Haven´t seen that guy on TV since.

At a very high level, intelligent people are in total denial that this one black guy we know almost nothing about could actcally destroy the entire country. And that total BS story about his "like-ability" is also a huge problem.

He was part of the problem, partly responsible, before he ever stole the presidency. Go back to his community activist days and forcing banks to make substandard loans. It´s all there.

As long as Obama can have the liberal journalists keep claiming it is congress responsibility, he will still not lead, which he never has, as a state politician, or as a federal politician. The POTUS is the one who is supposed to lead.

Power play: Federal ruling
forbids states from checking

Washington Times (D.C), by Stephen Dinan    Original Article

A federal commission rejected three states’ requests to ask voters for proof of citizenship, issuing a complex decision Friday that said it’s up to the national government, not the states, to decide what to include on registration forms. Under the motor-voter law, federal officials distribute voter-registration forms in all of the states. Arizona, Kansas and Georgia all asked that those forms request proof of citizenship, but the federal Election Assistance Commission rejected that in a 46-page ruling. The EAC said states can check driver’s license databases or ask federal immigration authorities for information, but they cannot tell the federal government

Again promising to act on his own wherever and whenever he can, President Obama on Saturday said the U.S. is on the cusp of an economic breakthrough but accused Republicans of standing in the way. “We are primed to bring back more of the good jobs claimed by the recession and lost to overseas competition in recent decades. But that requires a year of action,” Mr. Obama said in his weekly address. “And I want to work with Congress this year on proven ways to create jobs, like building infrastructure and fixing our broken immigration system.

According to The NY Times, President Obama didn´t know again: "At the same time, aides said Mr. Obama was surprised to learn after leaks by Edward J. Snowden, the former National Security Agency contractor, just how far the surveillance had gone. "Things seem to have grown at the N.S.A.," Mr. Plouffe said, citing specifically the tapping of foreign leaders´ telephones. "I think it was disturbing to most people, and I think he found it disturbing."" Sorry but this is incredible!

With California´s strong nut

ESCALON, Calif. –The soaring value of California´s nut crops is attracting a new breed of thieves, who have been making off with the pricey commodities by the truckload, recalling images of cattle rustlers of bygone days. In one case from this harvest season in the Central Valley, thieves cut through a fence and hauled off $400,000 in walnuts. Investigators suspect low-level organized crime, while some pilfered nuts are ending up in Los Angeles for resale at farmers markets or disappear into the black market. Such heists have become so common that an industry task force has devised ways to thwart

Cash for Kidneys: The Case
for a Market for Organs
Wall Street Journal, by Gary S. Becker & Julio J. Elias    Original Article

In 2012, 95,000 American men, women and children were on the waiting list for new kidneys, the most commonly transplanted organ. Yet only about 16,500 kidney transplant operations were performed that year. Taking into account the number of people who die while waiting for a transplant, this implies an average wait of 4.5 years for a kidney transplant in the U.S. The situation is far worse than it was just a decade ago, when nearly 54,000 people were on the waiting list, with an average wait of 2.9 years. For all the recent attention devoted to the health-care overhaul, the

Go Figure: Fed budget bill
comes to $3M per word

WASHINGTON- Talk about words more costly than gold. The giant federal budget bill that Congress passed late Thursday will cost taxpayers nearly $3 million per word, or if you want to really think big, almost $700 million per page. The bill authorizes $1.1 trillion in spending. It is 1,582 pages long. An Internet word counting program said it has 370,445 words, numbers and symbols. So simple math comes up with $2.9 million per word average and $695 million per page average, though different parts of the budget package spend more than others sections. By comparison, there are only 4,543 words

(Video) President Barack Obama announced Friday that John Podesta, his new "counselor" and the political operative responsible for creating the institutional left in Washington, will be the appointed "to lead a comprehensive review of big data and privacy" in the aftermath of revelations about the National Security Agency´s electronic spying programs. When he joined the White House last month, Podesta´s focus was said to be "climate change." The president´s speech contained little news. It was a classic Obama set-piece, designed to demonstrate that he understands both sides of a complex argument, while delegating responsibility to third parties and taking steps

For some time, the right-wing has been trying to paint mainstream Republicans as amenable to keeping Obamacare. No, really. They suggest the John Boehners and Mitch McConnells of the political world would be content to keep the health-care law, maybe just fiddle around the edges. (One of those accused of such treachery, Doug Holtz-Eakin of the American Action Forum, says that is hogwash: “Nobody has written, researched, testified, or whined more about . . . ObamaCare than me.”) The far right accused opponents of the shutdown as, in effect, voting for Obamacare. This is all poppycock, but it’s worth asking

TIME Magazine managing editor Nancy Gibbs is a well-established fan of Hillary Clinton, and on Thursday she brought her cheerleading act to MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell Reports. Gibbs was there to discuss this week’s cover of TIME, which asks, “Can Anyone Stop Hillary?” Mitchell asked Gibbs how long Hillary can postpone making a decision about whether to run for president in 2016. Gibbs responded, “I think she can postpone it almost longer than anyone we have seen. It allows her to not have to answer every controversy that comes up, the latest obviously being the Benghazi report today.” [Video below. MP3

(Video) Pennsylvania’s voter ID law, among the nation’s most stringent, was struck down Friday morning by a state judge. Commonwealth Court Judge Bernard L. McGinley ruled that the law, requiring almost all voters to present photo identification prior to voting, was an unreasonable burden on voters. He said the free voter ID that residents were entitled to under the law was insufficiently available, only at 71 drivers license centers located across the state. Several counties had no such centers and others were only open two days a week, leading McGinley to rule that the law “unnecessarily burden[s] the hundreds of thousands

Months and months ago, when Barack Obama could be bothered to say anything at all about the attacks in Ben-ghazi, Libya, on September 11, 2012, the president promised to bring the perpetrators to justice. That was before White House spokesman Jay Carney dismissed the attacks as something that “happened a long time ago.” It’s been 16 months. The U.S. government has neither captured nor killed a single participant in those attacks, which left Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans dead. Why?

President Obama’s speech on NSA reform had all the hallmarks of his administration—and, not coincidentally, of his hyper-analytical, aloof, and cerebral personality. The endless, quasi-public policy review? Check. Lengthy consultations with a vast variety of experts? Check. (“I’ve listened to foreign partners, privacy advocates, and industry leaders. My administration has spent countless hours considering how to approach intelligence in this era of diffuse threats and technological revolution.”) The rhetorical genuflections to appear fair to both sides.

Maybe you rationalized it by reasoning that you had a familiarity with the book, or knew who the author was, or what the story was about, or had glanced at its Wikipedia page. Or maybe you had tried to read the book, even bought it and set it by your bed for months unopened, hoping that it would impart what was in it merely via proximity (if that worked, please email me).

T ea Party activists and the conservative groups that have enforced their agenda are vehemently opposed to the $1.1 trillion omnibus spending bill that will fund the government through September. On Wednesday evening, the House passed the bill anyway, 359 to 67, with plenty of votes to spare. Sixty-four of those no votes were from conservative Republicans. But it seems pretty clear from the vote tally that Tea Party–style "ideological purity has lost its power," says Jonathan Weisman in The New York Times.

Welcome to modern day governance in America! In this brave new world. vital legislation need not be read, or considered, or debated.
