It is really quite easy to understand why the U.S. economy is in crisis and decline. The answer is found in how we treat the heroes of the economy. I call these heroes “financial first responders.” They are the business owners, investors, job creators and taxpayers. They risk their financial lives, just as policemen and firemen risk their bodies.
I’ve predicted disaster for the U.S. economy since the day of Barack Obama’s election in 2008. Now, the results are in. The picture is grim. Here are some frightening economic numbers to think about the next time the lying, manipulating mainstream media tells you that we are in “recovery.”
A couple of weeks ago, Barack Obama held a press conference to discuss a local court case. Highly unusual. Actually, unheard of. Why on Earth would the President get involved in a local court case? Obama just can’t let the George Zimmerman/Trayvon Martin case go because he is obsessed by race.
President Barack Obama can’t stop comparing himself, or the son he never had, to Trayvon Martin. And he can’t stop talking about race. For me, the George Zimmerman/Trayvon Martin case was never about black or white. It was always about life or death — for Zimmerman. You see, 36 years ago, I was Zimmerman.
And I’m under massive attack by the mainstream media and Barack Obama’s defenders. (Oh right, I repeated myself). I must be doing something right. I must be scaring the Obama socialist cabal to death. I must be hitting a bulls-eye with my opinions.
Mr. President, I will give you credit for one achievement. I thought it could never happen. You have single-handedly cured me of my work ethic and addiction to success. I am healed. Mr. Obama, you have set me free. I’m done. It no longer pays to sacrifice under Obama.
President Barack Obama has truly gone off the deep end. He has just decided to kick the U.S. economy while it’s down. What’s Obama’s latest brainstorm? Force businesses to hire criminals — and not just any criminals. Obama wants black criminals to step to the front of the employment line.
The Barack Obama socialist cabal and mainstream media lie about immigration. They frame the debate as having only two options: the Democrat way (let everyone in and put them all on welfare) or the supposed Republican way (keep everyone out and send home those already here). That is a blatant lie.
Let me say it out loud: I don’t trust my government as far as I can spit. And you shouldn’t either. Why would I? History proves that people in government the world over are liars, cheats, frauds, incompetents, common criminals, tyrants and even murderers.
My life has crossed paths with Obama on multiple occasions. According to Obama, we were Columbia University classmates, both pre-law and political science majors in the Class of ’83. I also ran against Obama in 2008 on the Libertarian Party Presidential ticket. What are the odds? But something about the Obama at Columbia story has always bothered me.
