Godot Ain't Comin' ... Neither Is Recovery

By D. E. Carson, published on Mar 7, 2009

The recession began in December 2007.  That was fifteen months ago.  Since that time, the U.S. economy has lost 4.4 million jobs.  According to the Department of Labor more than half of those 4.4 million loses have happened in the last four months – three of which are while Obama has been president.

He promised reform and recovery.  So far he’s delivered speeches with the help of teleprompters, flown all over the United States on a “spiffy” plane, named at least four people to his cabinet who don’t think they have to pay taxes and treated British Prime Minister Gordon Brown like a red-headed... (more)

By D. E. Carson, published on Mar 3, 2009

There are those who absolutely refuse to accept Barack Obama as president under any circumstances. Case in point, there are those still at large complaining that Barack Obama may not be eligible under the Constitution because he has not produced a birth certificate proving that he was, in fact, born in Hawaii. While it may be true that he has not produced a legal birth certificate, under Title 8 U.S.C. Ch 12, Subtitle III , Part I Section1401, Barack Obama is a natural-born citizen of the United States because he was, “born outside the geographical limits of the United... (more)

By Amo, published on Mar 2, 2009

...owned businesses and took power of all government entities, and in a short period of time, he was successful in stabilizing the economy.

Let me be clear, Italy had a much different form of government then the United States, and I’m not suggesting that Mussolini and Obama have similar objectives, of world dominance indeed they don’t, however I truly believe that President Obama’s agenda is to transform our government through massive entitlement programs, into a hybrid form socialism, similar to what we see today in Italy, France and Sweden, and to... (more)

By Amo, published on Feb 21, 2009

... his mortgage payments, and has even appealed to his congressman Rep. Anthony Weiner, to intervene.

Astoundingly, Mr. Michael Moskowitz a Manhattan based lender of Equity Inc. who was quoted in the article said that Mr. Saab would be a “good candidate” for financial aid under President Obama…aka THE ONE, mortgage bailout.

Mr. Moskowitz went on to explain; “Obama is trying to take a deserving person whose mortgage is worth more then the property is and refinance them”.

You Never Want A Serious Crises To Go To Waste

By Amo, published on Feb 16, 2009

...this crises began should have been foremost with any “stimulus package” proposed, and sadly it’s not.

What’s truly ironic is that while this massive spending bill does little to actually stimulate the economy, the payments due to future generations in the next 15 to 20 years will be staggering. “Ironic”, in that the current crop of young college educated voters, who made up a sizeable voting block for President Obama, will be the middle-aged wage earners and will eventually be the ones paying for this massive spending bill.

By Amo, published on Feb 13, 2009

Chocking back tears, an elderly black homeless woman came to the podium, and in a low halting voice asked for assistance. Henrietta Hughes pleaded “I have an urgent need; we need a home, our own kitchen, our own bathroom”.

President Obama looking directly at Henrietta slowly walked towards her and wrapped his arms around her, and in a clear commanding voice, ordered his staff to meet with her after the event, and assured her that he would help, and help he did. Senator Nick Thompson and his wife offered the woman a home in Fort Denaud, a 3-bedroom 2-bath house on three acres of land…”rent-free,... (more)

The Three Amigos

By manny osborne, published on Feb 13, 2009

Among the group's proposals ahead of a special United Nations ministerial meeting in Vienna to evaluate global drug policy is a call to decriminalize the possession of cannabis use.

The former presidents said the U-S-led war on drugs has failed and urged President Barack Obama to consider new policies, including decriminalizing marijuana.
