Pun intended. The failure of economic activity from New Years Days through Black Fridays in the Age of Obama to produce profits after stores close on the Friday after Thanksgiving Day, has led many to re-dub the biggest shopping day of the year, “gray” Friday. But if American businesses not based on Wall Street are still in the red after nearly 11/12ths of the year is | Read More » . . . → Read More: Still seeing government-run red on Black Fridays
Admission: It has become increasingly harder for this 2008 Housing-Bust-and-subsequent-Great-Recession-ravaged South Carolina Gamecock now roosted atop Stone Mountain of Georgia, to be thankful during the anemic so-called recovery brought to America by Obamanomics. We don’t live on Wall Street, K Street or a fracking-good state. No, we continue to struggle with hunger games outside of the Capitol City with scribblings such as this dedicated to | Read More » . . . → Read More: Thankful for faith, friends and football
The fight against hydraulic fracturing has recently ratcheted up. On November 5, one town in Ohio and three in Colorado, passed ballot measures designed to ban or temporarily halt hydraulic fracturing—the brief (3-5 day) phase, often referred to as “fracking”—that is essential to the advanced oil-and-gas extraction processes that have given America the lead in global energy production. A fourth Colorado town awaits a recount. Initial election results showed the moratorium in Broomfield, Co—failed by 13 votes. However, on November 13, after all the overseas, military, provisional and other outstanding ballots were counted, it had passed by 17 votes. A margin of less than 0.5 percent triggers an automatic recount—leaving the final outcome currently unknown. In Bowling Green and Youngstown, Ohio, the opposite happened. Similar proposed bans against fracking were defeated. Of the four votes in Colorado, Tisha Schuller, president of the Colorado Oil and Gas Association (COGA) calls the Boulder and Lafayette votes merely “symbolic,” and noted that “Lafayette’s last new well permit was in the early 1990s and Boulder’s last oil and gas well was plugged in 1999.” However, Fort Collins, CO, is near the promising production of the Niobrara shale. The Fort Collins city council passed a […] . . . → Read More: Environmental extremists continue the fracking fight
It’s no secret that I think we have too many government bureaucrats and I’ve shared very strong evidence that most of them are grossly overpaid. I also have shown some data suggesting that they don’t work very hard, though I confess to mixed feelings about that factoid since I’d rather have some bureaucrats goofing off […] . . . → Read More: Some Jobs Are Bad Jobs, even in the Private Sector
President Obama has presided over a terrible jobs market. Unemployment is more than two-percentage points higher today than the White House claimed it would be if the so-called stimulus was enacted. Even more worrisome, the employment-population ratio seems to have permanently fallen, which is bad news for economic performance since our output is a function […] . . . → Read More: Obama Administration Urges More Unemployment
The woman who wrote this letter to Barack Obama, Yolanda Burroughs-Vestal, clearly articulates the feelings and frustrations that so many of us have!
Frustration over the fact that this man knows nothing about the daily struggles of Americans, nothing about what his policies have done to the ‘folks’ he claims to represent and empathize with and lastly the fact that he most likely really couldn’t give a crap about any of it!
A perfect case in point is the fiasco of Obamacare which has the potential to ruin lives and actually result in the death of people who suddenly find themselves uninsured and unable to receive treatment for life threatening illnesses.
A Mother says ‘Thank You’ to Barack Obama! (H/T The D.C. Clothesline)
Dear President Obama,
I wanted to take a moment to say thank you for all you have done and are doing. You see I am a single Mom located in the very small town of Palmer, Texas. I live in a small rental house with my two children. I drive an older car that I pray daily runs just a little longer. I work at a mediocre job bringing home a much lower paycheck than you or your wife could even imagine living on. I have a lot of concerns about the new “Obamacare” along with the taxes being forced on us Americans and debts you are adding to our country. I have a few questions for you Mr. President.
Have you ever struggled to pay your bills? I have.
Have you ever sat and watched your children eat and you eat what was left on their plates when they were done, because there wasn’t enough for you to eat to? I have.
Have you ever had to rob Peter to pay Paul, and it still not be enough? I have.
Have you ever been so sick that you needed to see a doctor and get medicine, but had no health insurance because it was too expensive? I have.
Have you ever had to tell your children no, when they asked for something they needed? I have.
Have you ever patched holes in pants, glued shoes, replaced zippers, because it was cheaper than buying new? I have.
Have you ever had to put an item or two back at the grocery store, because you didn’t have enough money? I have.
Have you ever cried yourself to sleep, because you had no clue how you were going to make ends meet? I have.
My questions could go on and on. I don’t believe you have a clue what Americans are actually going through and honestly, I don’t believe you care. Not everyone lives extravagantly. While your family takes expensive trips that cost more than most of us make in two-four years, there are so many of us that suffer. Yet, you are doing all you can to add to the suffering. I think you are a very selfish and cold hearted man, who does not care what is best for the people he was elected by (not by me) to represent, but more so out for the glory of your name attached to history. So thank you Mr. President, thank you for pushing those of us that are barely staying afloat completely under water and driving America into the ground. You have made your mark in history, as the absolute worst and most hated president of the United States. God have mercy on your soul!
The truth is that this President has no clue what the people on Main Street are going through and, to repeat my previous statement, most likely couldn’t give a crap about any of it!
