>Obama Hecklers Ask: Where’s The Change?

>

As President Obama addressed the crowd at a breakfast fundraiser in San Francisco Thursday, he fielded some audience input that he wasn’t bargaining for.
A woman in the crowd suddenly rose from her seat and said: “Mr. President, we wrote you a song,” according to the White House pool report. The president attempted to quiet her, but the woman and her table of donors at the St. Regis Hotel breakfast broke into song and raised signs that read “Free Bradley Manning”–the Army intelligence specialist accused of releasing diplomatic cables to WikiLeaks. Yesterday, it was reported that Manning had been moved to a less restrictive prison following pressure from human rights groups.
The protesters said they had spent $5,000 donating to Obama. “We’ll vote for you in 2012, yes that’s true. Look at the Republicans–what else can we do?” they reportedly chanted.
“We paid our dues. Where’s our change?” they sang.

>America Is In Debt $55 Trillion, Not Just $14.5 Triillion

>

Two years ago, Sen. Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., shocked the world when he stated,
“If you started the day Jesus Christ was born 
and spent $1 million every day since then, 
you still wouldn’t have spent $1 trillion.”
This statement came on the heels of President Barack Obama releasing his $819 billion “rescue plan.”  A plan that seems to have rescued only Big Banks, Wall Street, and certain political insiders.
A plan that in hindsight was cheap.
YES, CHEAP.
Since then, Obama and Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke have gone on a spending spree like two thieves with a stolen credit card.
Now TRILLIONS have been squandered on Obamacare, “quantitative easing,” and more bailouts.
Because of these controversial actions, our national debt has dangerously soared past $14 trillion.
Please Don’t Let Your Eyes 
Glaze Over This Number.
That’s exactly what THEY want you to do.
With everyone throwing out “millions, billions, and trillions” . . . it’s hard to conceptualize how your money is being mishandled.
  • Going back to McConnell’s example, you would have to spend $1 million a day for38,975 years to hit that $14 trillion mark.
  • One trillion $1 bills stacked one on top of the other would reach nearly 68,000 miles
  • A billion seconds is about 32 years. A trillion seconds is 32,000 years
But $14 trillion is only the “official number.”
According to a plethora of websites, like USDebtClock.org, when you include Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, interest owed on debt, and other factors, our real debt is a daunting $55 trillion.
Your family is responsible for a jaw-dropping $683,161.
And make no mistake . . .
YOU ARE THE VICTIM
The money wired to Wall Street, Big Banks, and Bigger Government is coming out of yourpocket.
And while your hard-earned money is being “taxed” away, you are about to get blindsided by an inflation tidal wave.
You see, it used to be that the Fed had to print money to pay their cohorts. Today, it’s all electronic . . . a few keystrokes can create millions of virtual Benjamin Franklins.
And Bernanke’s injection of fabricated capital is rendering the American dollar worthless. (The greenback has lost 50% of its value since 1985!)
The inflation avalanche is at our doorstep.
Gasoline is already surpassing $4 a gallon on its way to $7, and then $10. And as rising prices make everyday staples like milk and bread unaffordable, millions will be left drowning in a vicious cycle of debt and despair. 
I suggest you read my latest article that ties together the bad fortunes of America and Japan. Each nation has a tragedy, but Japan’s earthquakes and tsunami and resulting horrendous damage is no fault of theirs. Our tragedy is the large debt we just outlined above, which is OUR fault. Ours only when you consider it was just last November that people woke up at the polls and voted out six score of incompetent Democrats and Republicans from Congress. In 2012 we must finish the job by defeating an incompetent president, Barack Obama and a bunch more of Congressional progressives. Obama is by far the worst president we have ever had. But that won’t be enough to get him thrown out of office. We must rally our friends and vote him out. 
We called last November’s effort at the polls successful work of the Tea Party, but we are all Tea Party people if we want America to rebound and succeed. Unfortunately, Republican leadership is acting like it was their doing. Many of the holdovers are part of the problem and they, too, must go along with their long-time friends the Democrats.
Also, after you read my article, “Is America Dead” on http://GettingAmericaRight.blogspot.com, click onto a must-see video. And what you will discover in this video is nothing short of PURE GENIUS.
To your success,

Is the Republican Party Finished?


  0Share024Share24

The lame-duck session of the 111th Congress proved one thing beyond a doubt: the Republican Party does not represent the interests of conservatives.  Despite the midterm election tidal wave, in which the Republican Party gained 63 House seats (eclipsing its historic 1994 success against Clinton), congressional Republicans failed to leverage their victory into political clout and collapsed like a house of cards in the lame-duck session.
The last two weeks ought to sicken conservatives.  Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell spectacularly failed to hold his caucus together to even delay ratification of New START until the 112th Congress is seated in January.  Republican leftists Olympia Snowe and Lisa Murkowski sided with Democrats to end the military’s “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy, forcing the gay agenda from the streets of San Francisco right into the U.S. Marine Corps.  Congressional Republicans agreed to cut FICA taxes for Social Security (which is underfunded already) and expand the Democratic Party’s welfare state constituency by extending unemployment benefits — in exchange for maintaining current tax rates for a paltry two years.  The deal will add billions to the deficit.  Tea Party darling Scott Brown, mocked by Obama for driving a truck in his insurgent 2009 campaign in which he stole “Ted Kennedy’s seat” from the Democrats, voted for Obama’s agenda on all of these issues.

        This should concern all of us…..How will we ever get out of this mess?
 
Having spent three weeks in a hospital in Naples, Florida with my wife I couldn’t help noticing what was going on in the hospital and I had a lot of time to talk to the doctors and nurses about what I had observed.  Below is a commentary from an ER Doctor.  Do you think this might be a big reason our health care system and our social security system are so screwed up?  Do you think this might be a big reason our taxes keep going up?  Who do you think these people are going to vote for?
From a Florida ER doctor:
“I live and work in a state overrun with illegals. They make more money having kids than we earn working full-time. Today I had a 25-year old with 8 kids – that’s right 8; all illegal anchor babies and she had the nicest nails, cell phone, hand bag, clothing, etc. She makes about $1,500 monthly for each; you do the math. I used to say, “We are the dumbest nation on earth.” Now I must say and sadly admit: WE are the dumbest people on earth (that includes ME) for we elected the idiot idealogues who have passed the bills that allow this. Sorry, but we need a revolution. Vote them all out in 2010.     


 
 REMEMBER —
IN NOVEMBER 2010, WE HAVE A GOLDEN OPPORTUNITY TO CLEAN OUT THE ENTIRE HOUSE AND ONE-THIRD OF THE SENATE!


 
This is an insult and a kick in the butt to all of us… 
 
Get mad and pass it on – I don’t know how, but maybe some good will come of this travesty.
If the immigrant is over 65, they can apply for SSI and Medicaid and get more than a woman on Social Security, who worked from 1944 until 2004.
She is only getting $791 per month because she was born in 1924 and there’s a ‘catch 22.’
It is interesting that the federal government provides a single refugee with a monthly allowance of $1,890.  Each can also obtain an additional $580 in social assistance, for a total of $2,470 a month.
This compares to a single pensioner, who after contributing to the growth and development of America for 40 to 50 years, can only receive a monthly maximum of $1,012 in old age pension and Guaranteed Income Supplement.
Maybe our pensioners should apply as refugees!
Consider sending this to all your American friends, so we can all be ticked off and maybe get the refugees cut back to $1,012 and the pensioners up to $2,470.  Then we can enjoy some of the money we were forced to submit to the Government over the last 40 or 50 or 60 years. And not to receive a increase for 2010 Vote them all out of office…….
 Please forward this to every American to expose what our elected politicians have been doing for the past 11 years to over-taxed Americans.
SEND THIS TO EVERY AMERICAN TAXPAYER YOU KNOW.

>Republicans–Get On The Offensive!

>by Don White

Did you know that 57 percent of all Americans believe Republicans control Congress? That means they blame Republicans for what has happened in financial circles the past several months. It also is why many of them voted for Obama and not McCain. The breakdown of Republican communications is, in large measure, cause for losing the election. Few Americans relate the “Change” Obama talks about as being a change from the high-spending Democrats to something better, to conservatism and Republicanism.

In reality, it was the Democratic controlled Congress that outvoted President’ Bush’s bills (offered in 2005 and 2007) to reform the flagrantly errant Fannie Mae.

Had the Democratic controlled Congress only listened to Bush the most terrible recession in seven decades may have been averted. Certainly, Congress would not be faced with spending $700 billion plus on saving our financial system.

It all stems from the failure of communicators–and Republicans are not ammune from communication criticism–to teach Americans that it’s a Democrat controlled Congress that caused this problem.

Republicans–whenever you speak, make reference to “the Democratic controlled Congress.” Beat it into the heads of our dull electorate–say it loudly and often–that it is the Demos, not the GOP that’s in charge and has been throughout this financial debacle.
