With more than 8 percent unemployment and Federal debt approaching $16 trillion, we might believe Washington is taking steps to preserve a Nation on the brink of catastrophe. Instead, the Federal government is launching other initiatives; one of them is to stop a scourge that has befallen America: bullying.
Last month, Chief Justice John Roberts sided with the four “liberal” members of the U.S. Supreme Court and upheld Obamacare. Many Americans who were upset about the decision vented that anger on Twitter. I find it bizarre that many Americans tweeted about “moving to Canada” to enjoy better medical care.
On a hot June afternoon in 1998 in Spokane, Wash., I raised my right hand and pledged my allegiance to the flag and to the United States of America. I felt a lot of emotions that day. I had become a citizen of the greatest Nation on Earth. Yet in some ways I didn’t feel much different, no doubt because of my paternal roots.
Americans have a right to be upset. It is a two-man race for the Presidency, and both candidates embrace big government and big spending. Barack Obama and Mitt Romney favor military intervention abroad, and both men’s healthcare plans have interfered with the free market.
The economy could not be collapsing at a worse time for President Barack Obama. But Obama has a powerful ally in the Federal Reserve. The central bank is set to launch a third round of quantitative easing (QE3) to keep interest rates artificially low and perhaps rescue his Presidency.
Not once in the 30 years that I have been researching the markets have I witnessed the troubles that the world now faces: a stock market slide, falling gross domestic product, rising unemployment and waning confidence.
Four years ago, Barack Obama convinced millions of Americans that he would unite the country and the world. He has failed. The question many people want answered is: Will violence come to America? It seems possible given global events, terrible leadership and a wrecked economy.
Few things have scared the wits out of me more than seeing the movie “The Thing” 30 years ago. With just six months to go until the election, both President Barack Obama and Republican front-runner Mitt Romney seem to have their own “Thing” that scares them: the economy.
Wall Street’s ignorance was on full display this month when Warren Buffett’s top investment advisor Charles Munger explained that gold is a useless relic. Munger thinks people should either be facing a Nazi occupation or else be as stupid as a caveman in order to purchase gold.
Obama tells us that the Republican Party is the challenge because it is mired in the past. If by the past Obama means America’s wealth and greatness, then he is correct. If he is given another four years, America’s greatness will be lost and a superpower will be eviscerated.
Oil at more than $100 per barrel is far too expensive. Despite President Barack Obama’s recent protestations that oil speculators are to blame for expensive petroleum, the truth is that most of the blame rests on his shoulders.
The election of Barack Obama was seen as a pivotal moment of the 21st century: an opportunity for America to be healed by a black President who embraced the ideals needed for a new America. After the new President was anointed by leading celebrities and the mass media, America’s emperor was shown to be naked.
What did Barack Obama do when he first stepped into the Oval Office? He ordered up Obamacare. Lindsey Lohan is addicted to alcohol. Bill Clinton had issues with sex. Obama, however, is a social engineer spending our money to feed his fame addiction.
Mitt Romney has a chance at beating President Barack Obama in the November election. Much depends on whether America will swallow Obama’s Green platform. Obama’s renewable energy plans are as much a flight of fancy as GOP Presidential candidate Newt Gingrich’s idea to build moon bases.
In the 1986 remake of the movie “The Fly,” Geena Davis’ character, Veronica Quaife, said to Jeff Goldblum’s character, Seth Brundle: “Be afraid. Be very afraid.” For half a century, that is exactly what the ruling elite has been telling ordinary people like you and me.
The yoke that is the welfare state has thoroughly infected America. If voters re-elect President Barack Obama, he will brainwash all Americans into thinking they are entitled to government handouts.
America is a declining empire trying to resurrect itself through military intervention and armed occupation. It seems obvious that the continued occupation of Afghanistan — a country that has defeated the armies of the Russian tsars, the British Empire and the Soviet Union — is doomed to fail.
Barack Obama must love Rush Limbaugh. The Conservative talk show host that some have called the conscience of the Republican Party went off on a tangent while ignoring Obama’s Machiavellian power grab.
If you think gasoline is expensive now, just wait and see the price at the pump if Barack Obama is re-elected. His policies have steadily dragged the country toward $5 per gallon. If he gets another term in office, affordable gas will be a faint memory. And that will have Obama and his Green backers tickled pink.
“Knowledge is power,” wrote Sir Francis Bacon. There’s little doubt Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg grasped this when he created his vision for social networking eight years ago this month. Whether you consider Facebook a miracle or a monster, there is no doubt it has changed the way people relate to each other.
The power brokers who dictate our future and destroy the freedoms they claim to protect are hell-bent on engaging America in another war. The tom-toms that Republican Presidential candidate Ron Paul warns of are thunderous.
Republican Presidential candidate Mitt Romney has accumulated a vast amount of wealth and in doing so probably hasn’t broken a law or bylaw. However, Romney isn’t being honest about what kind of business he operated and he greatly exaggerates his business know-how.
Any notion of growing disappointment was left out of President Barack Obama’s State of the Union speech last week. It shouldn’t have been. The seeds of discontent are being sowed across America. Obama is more prolific than Johnny Appleseed.
