I don’t have that answer, and probably nobody does, but Barak Hussein Obama certainly looks like he’s going to try to find that answer. Obama ran for office on a platform a change and unification of the country. A man who could solve our problems. Somebody who could balance the budget, balance the economy, balance our lives. Ayuh, he’s balancing all right. Just like a drunk on a high beam.
It hasn’t even been the whole hunnert days of honeymooning that presidents seem to be allowed, and already he’s screwed this nation up beyond repair. Everybody oohed and aahed, giggled and tee-heed over the fact that we seemingly have put our racial issues to rest, having elected the nation’s first black man to the presidency.
So what happens? He appoints Eric Holder as his chief attorney general. In Holders first big speech and according to a VOA article, he “re-ignited a debate over the state of race relations in the United States” Instead of leaving it alone, he prodded the debate over racial inequality and differences, tearing open old wounds and discussions. I’m sure he’s going to pay big for that speech down the road.
And all the while secretly stirring the pot of discontent behind our backs, we find that the Great B.O. is really none other than Robinhood in disguise. Or is it Karl Marx? Either way, it amounts to the same wax dummy in the museum. Take from the rich and give to the poor. Socialism at its finest hour.
Brings to mind some of the Holy Rollers and their attempts to connect Obama to the mark of the beast and the Antichrist. I’m not going to try to guess as to whether the seals have been broken, but one of the trains I was following led me to John 8:44. Obama is the 44th president, so I figure what the heck, what do all of the chapters and verses with the number 44 have to say. Weeellll, John 8:44 says “Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.” I know, a stretch, but I still found it interesting.
So now he claims he’s going to balance the budget and return the US to a comfortable position of having the deficit at 3% of the GDP. Hahahahahaha. Good one Prez!
Let’s do some headlines
New York Times; Obama Has Plan to Slash Deficit, Despite Stimulus Bill
Houston Chronicle; Official: Obama wants to halve budget deficit by term’s end
The Washington Post; Obama’s First Budget Seeks To Trim Deficit
That’s only four out of a dozen papers I looked over this(Sunday) morning. All of them cried the same old tale. Obama wants to slash the deficit in half. So why did he push to have this stimulus package get passed into law? There’s a long story behind this legislation, and it comes from the heart of the left coast philosophy of socialism to its core.
What no one seems to be talking abound is the number of strings attached to this bill. Everybody talks about what they want to do with the money they’re going to be getting. But nobody wants to talk about how they are going to pay for it. Nor are they willing to discuss the requirements. I have read in many of these articles of veiled threats directed to a few of the state governors that are questioning the wisdom of this Bill.
This stimulus bill was a bad idea, right from day one, no matter how you look at it. Collins and Snowe were wrong to support it, and their support of the bill will ultimately become their greatest political liability. I do not expect either one of them to be re-elected, should they decide to run again.
The Houston Chronicle says of the issue “Obama’s budget director, Peter Orszag, told lawmakers recently that even after the economy recovers, annual deficits could reach $750 billion or so and steadily exceed $1 trillion by the end of the next decade. And, Obama himself has said, without decisive action, “trillion-dollar deficits will be a reality for years to come.” Our deficit could exceed 1 trillion dollars a year for the next ten years. I’m never going to be able to retire, am I?
And yet this fool we elected as president wants to half the deficit, concentrating on Bush’s legacy deficit as a benchmark. What a moron. Presidents are puppets, and I really have to wonder who is pulling this man’s strings. Who exactly is making the minstrel dance in this little skit? Record spending, and he complains that we’re spending too much. Are we sure Obama’s not really a woman?
To get to the meat of this post, the HC says “Barack Obama wants to cut the federal deficit in half by the end of his first term, mostly by scaling back Iraq war spending, raising taxes on the wealthiest and streamlining government, an administration official said Saturday as the president worked to finalize his first budget request.” We already knew he Iraq war was off the table as the agreement to pull out was signed under Bush’s watch. But Obama plans to tax the wealthiest of Americans to pay for all of these new welfare programs he wants to initiate and grow.
Just like Robinhood did in the fairy tales. Doesn’t his crowd realize that it is the rich people who provide employment for the poor? If they have to pay more taxes, how severely will that hurt the growth of the economy in the long run? The Washington Post says “Obama also seeks to increase tax collections, mainly by making good on his promise to eliminate some of the temporary tax cuts enacted in 2001 and 2003. While the budget would keep the breaks that benefit middle-income families, it would eliminate them for wealthy taxpayers, defined as families earning more than $250,000 a year. Interesting that he intends to increase the tax those making 250 grand or more a year, but the middle class gets off without any punishment.
In other words, the Great B.O. got very little political support from the rich, and they are in fact a small minority in the greater scheme, but the middle class, who were great supporters of Barak Hussein Obama, get rewarded. Hmmm. Maybe there is something behind John 8:44.
