Powerful movie now available on DVD. Did you get to see “2016 Obama’s America” while it was playing in local movie theaters? In case you missed it or if you would like a copy so you can show it to friends, I’m happy to report that it’s now available on DVD. The list price is $19.99, but it’s available on Amazon.com for half that amount.
Another green boondoggle. One of Mitt Romney’s better lines in the first Presidential debate was about the Barack Obama Administration’s green energy subsidies: “I mean, I had a friend who said you don’t just pick the winners and losers, you pick the losers, all right?” Add another one to the sad tally. When A123 Systems was awarded a $249 million grant in 2009 (it received $132 million of it), the battery maker expected to build two plants in Michigan and create 3,000 jobs. It didn’t quite work out that way. On Tuesday, the company filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy.
How dare they! Mia Love is a black woman running for Congress in Utah. Since she’s a conservative Republican and not a liberal Democrat, she’s being deluged with hate mail and vicious emails. Stacey Dash, a black actress in Hollywood, dared to send out a tweet endorsing Mitt Romney for President. Suddenly she’s being denounced as “an indoor slave” and “jigaboo” who is “slutting [herself] to the white man.” Isn’t it amazing how intolerant the preachers of tolerance can be?
Another trillion-dollar deficit. The Treasury Department just confirmed what we all knew was going to happen: Barack Obama ran up a more than $1 trillion deficit for the fourth consecutive year. The deficit for fiscal year 2012 is down $207 billion from last year, but still hit a staggering $1.1 trillion. In February 2009, Obama pledged to cut the deficit in half. According to USA Today, he failed to do that. “The federal deficit has fallen slightly on Obama’s watch, but he fell far short of cutting it in half,” the newspaper reported.
