Merry Christmas! Thanks for taking time to read my blog. I think the light of truth is finally being shed on Obama. He's not the intelligent man that he's given credit for being. He just gets away with every damn thing! You and other patriots who see first hand how the "Chicago thugs" do things out there are just ignored.I don't know what's going to happen with anything that he has his fingers in. I'm horrified with Ben Nelson caving. I've sent him two emails in the last couple days. Once was praising him for sticking to his convictions. It was only after a meeting with Dingy Harry Reid that he caved. I sent him an email telling him hell would not be hot enough for those who kill babies and that he has the blood on his hands now. But the f**king Dems attach defense spending to shit bills. Hell won't be hot enough for them either!

I did not vote for him but I knew he would be a disaster. I live in Chicago and saw first hand what he did and didn't do. He was in office since 1995 representing the people of Illinois and the south side of Chicago. What he did? I can't think of a single thing he did to help the people or the neighborhoods and congressional districts he represented. Crime and murder were at record numbers in his district. Same with homes being boarded up on the South Side. He voted four times, when he bothered to vote, against tougher laws for prosecuting juvenille gang members as adults for murder and other violent crimes. So these thugs get out of jail at 18 years old and are right back on the streets. The 50 million grant he and Bill Ayers got to improve Chicago Public Schools didn't happen either. It supposedly was spent on alternative schools and who knows what else. There was no official accounting, audit or record of the money on where it was actually spent. Obama got a $100,000 dollar tax payer grant to beautify a vacant area near 67th st and the Dan Ryan Expressway in 2001. A park was going to be built. The park was never built, the lot is still full of weed, concrete and car parts. It is an eyesore. The money disappeared and despite the story being run on local TV news last year, the Illinois Democratic Attorney General will not investigate. I won't even get into how his buddy Rezko ripped off the government and pulled his scam off in Obama's district with at least a dozen properties. Some of these building still remain boarded up today. I could go on like Obama's personal house deal with Rezko and many other questionable Chicago style deals. I find it funny that in a recent poll 44% of those polled said they wished Bush was still President. Obama's Rasummen approval poll numbers as of mid December 2009 are at an all time low of 44%. Over a 20 point drop in less than a year. The most of any President in their first year in history.

It doesn't matter whether they are elephants or donkeys, the president is merely a puppet to big business anyway. Look at the FDA, and realize who is in control, which is big pharma. They are an agency here to look out for the public's interest and the only thing it looks out for it the profit margins of who pays them---the pharmaceutical companies. Talk about a conflict of interest!! That is a micro of the macro. We live in a capitalistic society and only money talks. Lobbyists and corporate america have the power, and our presidents are talking heads. How else can smoking still be legal??? It is too big to take on, even for our government. THINK ABOUT IT!! As a society, we need to wake up, and take our power back. Look into the global warming farce created to control the masses. I bought into all of this until I woke up to reality. Don't get me started on when they are going to finally announce there are extraterrestrials...hahaha. Where else have we gotten all of our technology? Obama should announce that soon. They are trying to figure out the best way to share that info with us so that the government comes out smelling delicious as opposed to the lying jack***es they truly are.

Quoting ModestySmiles:

Really??? where was everyone to complain for the eight year bush absolutely raped this nation?... that's all I'm saying.. anything Obama has decided right now.. we haven't felt the repercussions of we are still in the decline from the Bush administration.. i really thought the average person was smart enough to have realized that... but apparently the not.. people forget that we are in financila crisis due to Pres. Bush's mishaps... but I guess we liked it so much when he royally screwed us long and hard. I am no die hard democrat or republican.. i don't give Obama extra credit but i just think that if it took eight years for you all to think bush was an idiot, can Obama get 8 years to prove either the same or the opposite? isn't this the land of supposed equal opportunity?... For the record this is not directed towards anyone in particular.. I'm just venting.. love yall peace...


8 years for Obama???? ¿Let's hope he only gets 4. He can't even keep uninvited party crashers out of the White House...

Thank you for taking time to read my blog. As I've said Bush got the ball rolling for the spending no doubt. He was ok at one point. The American people liked him enough to put him in office twice so there had to be something right? Yes Bush was in for 8 years and things started going south. But Pres. Obama has, in my humble opinion, done more to hurt this country, and continues to hurt the country, more in a year than Bush did in years and years! Played more golf in a year than Bush did in 3 too.

Yep he's only going on only a year and look how he's screwed things up already! He said unemployment wasn't going to get above 8% he got one wrong didn't he! He doesn't go anything but fly on Air Force One! He's not running the country anyway all his cronies are. Have you taken a look at some of the people he surrounds himself with? They are a bunch of socialists and marxists and communists. And health care is not about health care..its about controlling one more aspect of the American people. 2 trillion dollars and 16 million people are still not going to be covered. One thing changes in my health benefits and bam I'm automatically in state run health care. Leave me the hell alone! Seriously do you agree with him or did you vote for him because he is a black man and wanted to be a part of history?

Bill is right... when you factor in those who are no longer even seeking employment, the jump is 5-7% points higher.

Seems to me that 'costly Healthcare' has ALWAYS been a problem for Employers.

Likewise, haven't we all wanged about high fuel prices, groceries, cost of goods and services?

Do you really think that employers were happy to pay exhorbitant prices for materials like Aluminum and Steel? Prices for these items was markedly high in the 90s and early 00s, as China began its increase in manufacturing.

Still, the political football otherwise known as 'healthcare' was no where near the issue it is today, at least not among politicos and employers.

Why not?

Because the economy was chugging along at a fantastic rate in the 90s, and while healthcare was still expensive, it wasn't as great an issue - companies were making money, and healthcare was viewed as an unlikeable but necessary 'cost of doing business.'

So, for all of you free-loading Obaminators out there:

wake up. It's THE ECONOMY, STUPID.

Fix the economy.

Stop with the overseas manufacturing.

Bring back small business ownership by offering major tax incentives to keep business here. We make little here, in terms of complete goods. We have become a service/broker oriented society, further opening the gulf between the haves and the have-nots.

Get rid of unions... there time has come and gone. They've become the problem, not the solution.

There is no hard-working middle-America anymore. Just those on the gov't dole, and those who prey upon those on the gov't dole. landscapers. maids. middlemen. Distributors. internet sales and distribution. lawyers.

And let's not forget the WAY over the top role of 'personal assistant'. OMG... what next? Someone to wipe your A%s?

Nothing tangible. No goods created.

Put people back to work, and let's see just how much of an issue Healthcare really is.

Ronald R.

Thanks sweetie...I always bounce back...can't keep a good woman down! You just pull the belt a little bit tighter that's all. I'm very happy my investments not IRA's or a 401, though I do have that through work, have been doing considerably better. Actually the $16K I lost has come back and is only $4K loss now, so its time to sell. As far as Obama, no he definitely did not get this mess started. Bush and big business did that as well as Congress with TARP 1. But Obama has added billions and billions of dollars of debt that will never be paid off. Actually if this BS of health care reform passes it will be 2.4 trillion dollars. Regardless of what he and Congress say, you cannot spend your way out of debt. How freaking stupid are they?

@Dekan: Okay, I know Lou Dobbs is leaving CNN-but are you vying for his old position already? That is a bunch of bull about how much illegal aliens can be/are given once they cross our borders. I will let you know now that most LEGAL aliens and CITIZENS aren't given that much-let's go down the line of what you listed BUT, IF YOU CROSS THE U.S.. BORDER ILLEGALLY YOU GET: 1. A DRIVERS LICENSE: being that you need several forms of identification to acquire one and would have to a)be able to read write and understand English b)display knowledge of our rules of the road c)pass a written and physical road exam-this proves difficult if not impossible for many aliens-both illegal and legal alike. 2. A SOCIAL SECURITY CARD: who told you that? If you are illegal you're doing your BEST to AVOID going to one of these offices-if for no other reason than fear of deportation! You are only given a SS card if you entered this country LEGALLY and are here on permanent status(aka given a Greencard). 3. WELFARE---------> 4. FOOD STAMPS AND------>> 5. FREE HEALTH CARE-------->>>I'll tackle all 3 of these at once. WRONG! As an illegal alien, you don't have a SS#. No SS#, no benefits. Unless you are here under some kind of asylum status, that's pretty much the only way you qualify for AFDC, FS or Medicaid without a SS#-and in that case, you're not entirely illegal-your visa status is just pending. As a sidebar, most legal aliens DON'T WANT welfare or any of those benefits because it can adversely affect their ability to eventually become a citizen-it's called "becoming a public charge"... Take this from someone who has worked with both illegal and legal aliens for 8 years in 2 different states, sweetheart, you are sadly mistaken. Lou Dobbs is a good man, but I feel like what our parents used to tell us about TV: too much of him can rot your brain....LOL!

Socialist. Fascist. I'M OUTRAGED! Fact: Obama has been President for 1 year. Fact: There was someone who was way closer to Totalitarianism in office for 8 years-who disobeyed and stomped and damn near desecrated our Constitution-where was all the outrage then? Yes, the economy sucks. Yes, unemployment is at 10%-but I can assure you that Prez. Obama didn't do that in his 1 YEAR in office. He is trying his darnest to get the economy back in order but seems to meet roadblocks evey step of the way in the form of back-biting Repubs and too eager to please and be considered Partisan Dems-also known as our lovely Congress. Let's not forget the Tea Party individuals who seem to be against higher taxes on paper, but on celluloid we see a bunch of racist rants and placards... Am I sorry I voted for President Obama? Not in the least-I still think he's the best for the job. Now am I sorry I voted Democrat right down the line for some of our people in Congress? *wincing* Yea, you may just have a point on that one...lol....

Today is my last day in Military Personnel. I lost 4 steps in pay thanks to our freaking governor who for 7 years in a row hasn't figured out a state budget! I do however have a job and was able to keep my housing on the base. We all bitch about one thing or another. But until it affects you directly you don't know!

Quoting linda21206:

obama is a clown our unemployment rate is almost 10 percent he is doing nothing about it all show


Our unemployment rate is 10.2% which means it's closer to 16%-17% when you factor in the number of people who have become so discouraged they are no longer even looking for a job.....¿

Because of what he says, the way he says it, his good intentions, whether he does a damn thing or not is why he got the Nobel Peace prize. Because he cares he's supposed to get away with ruining this country? Another day in office, another day closer to socialism. Thanks for checking out my blog.

Wow! Thanks for taking time to read my blog and the responses. You mentioned in your blog the border and people entering the United States. I'm going to list a few things that happen to people who cross other countries borders uninvited/legally. IF YOU CROSS THE NORTH KOREAN BORDER ILLEGALLY YOU GET 12 YEARS HARD LABOR. IF YOU GO INTO CHINA ILLEGALLY, YOUR CONSIDERED A SPY AND GET HARD PRISON TIME. IF YOU GO INTO GERMANY ILLEGALLY, YOU GET A HEFTY FINE WORK IT OFF OR PAY IT OFF, THEN DEPORTED. IF YOU CROSS THE IRANIAN BORDER ILLEGALLY YOU ARE DETAINED INDEFINITELY.... BUT, IF YOU CROSS THE U.S.. BORDER ILLEGALLY YOU GET: 1. A DRIVERS LICENSE 2. A SOCIAL SECURITY CARD 3. WELFARE 4. FOOD STAMPS AND 5. FREE HEALTH CARE For all of you who doesn't think this is the greatest country in the world...get the hell out!

Shazzie, shame on you!

¿

Tnink, for a moment, of what you have just written here... are you proud to be a part of a country wherein most otherr countries - countries who have taken our Trillions of dollars¿ that will never, EVER be repaid - and while using that money unabatedly, have reviled and spat upon our flag?

¿

yep, that's exactly the kind of country I want to be proud to be a member of. Screw them. Let them care for themselves. India? Pakistan? they are working toward being world powers.. something that takes billions and billions to attain. Meanwhile, 79% of India's children are undernourished and underdeveloped; 68% of Pakistani's? the same. Go figure... And they HATE US. Yet, they ALL take our money.

oh, this is rich!

¿

¿

Shazbootie... I never thought I'd hear such misinformed kaka coming from your keyboard!

¿

¿

I've just finished reading 5 blog pages of rhetoric, innuendo, and mostly nonsense here. Where are any of you speaking from facts?

¿

¿

It's amazing to note that, on the page I am on at the moment, there are at least 3 different African-American women who are about to kick some ass in blah'gland and HAVE NO F'ING IDEA WHAT THEY ARE EVEN TALKING ABOUT.

¿

What on Earth do your comments actually mean? You tear down the author of this blog, yet offer no substantive evidence that 'obama bin laden' has done a damn thing for anyone, including you!

¿

¿

- other than being on Oprah, what did the guy actually do before running for office? what office OF NOTE did he get voted into?

¿

- he won the NOBEL peace prize? FOR WHAT? for showing up? for being BLACK? What in the world has he done to make the world a better place, in the scant few years he's been around?

¿

- Hey, don't go flaunting Bush's failures as a reason for Obama to be held up high... not fair. One has NOThING to do with the other. They both suck. Only now, we see it sooner than we did then.

¿

- Let's review the first year, shall we? Someone (shazzie i believe, supported by others) mentioned the bank bailout... That's a Success story?

¿

FOR WHO? the Banks.. who else? I'm sorry... I haven't seen didley squat from that, and I doubt any of you have either unless you are part of HBSC, BARCLAYS, CHASE, Or MORGAN STANLEY. oh yeah... that 1.1 Billion we gave CITIgroup? yeah. that's what I thought.

¿

In case no one noticed, the bank bailout was pushed through BEFORE the election... Eleventh hour, to be exact, and not by the Obama admin... it was a last minute effort by the Bush-league cronies to get something passed before they ran out of dough, and how about that! They even got Obama to take the (praise?) for it! HOW RICH IS THAT?

¿

I know... Let's ask TWISTEDWIND!!!!! He'll have some great answers (go check out this meth freak's profile)

¿

- the health plan... OMG! you must be joking. MORE bureaucracy! Gosh, let's just give more of the taxpayer's money (taxpayer, soon to be an endangered species) to those who cross our borders illegally, are born into entitlement (probably 80% of the women responding to this blog), or just feel that they should ride the current wave of governmetn bailout...

¿

- And even THAT he's struggled with for over a year. I know! Let's resolve the REAL f'ing issue in this country... employment (or lack thereof) and then no one will b'tch about health care, because the economy will be booming, companies will be flush, and health care will go back to being 'a concern' not the overriding issue. IT'S THE ISSUE, BECAUSE NO ONE IS WORKING, MAKING ANY MONEY, AND CAN'T AFFORD ANY BILLS! Not just health care.

¿

Time for tough World Love, folks. Eh, if no one noticed, we are no longer in a position to be caretaker to the oppressed and poor of the world... we ARE the poor of the world.

¿

Close the borders. Close or tax the hell out of anyone here who wants to ship trade to China; tear down the unions; educate OUR students on grant and scholarship money, not Indians/Chinese/or other nuclear-bent societies, who are taking our taxpayer dollars. learing our trade secrets and going home to build THEIR economies; Screw allowing anyone, ANYONE not born here - regardless of race, religion, or political belief - from entering our country for more than a week or two to visit. Rehabilitate THIS country, before you send countless BILLIONS, TRILLIONS of dollars to countries like Venezuela (yeah, those guys!), or any other of the many countries who hate us for meddling, would strike at us if they weren't in fear of us, and secretly hope that the Venezuela, China, Pakistan, Russia and N. Korea, Iraq, Iran, all gang up on us at one time and launch Armegeddon.

¿

Oh, and as for Obama? I'm sorry... who is he, anyway? Wasn't he on Oprah once?

Our country got itself into the mess it did because we had a Congress comprised of liberal Democrats and RINO Republicans who went went along with out-of-control deficit spending. Growth in the size and intrusiveness of government and a loss in personal liberty happened first under a Republican president, and now under liberal Democrat Barack Obama's administration. I have never said Bush did everything right....far from it! He and his administration got the out of control spending started. People put so much emphasis on education. Do you realize it was intellectuals that gave us communism and fascism? You are making me the arguement about me. How does that answer the question of Obama's ability to lead? Would you care to elaborate on why Barak Hussein Obama was awarded the Nobel Peace prize. How is assaulting me answer the question I initially posed?

Dekan09 yes I am concerned about the Global Warming issue, however I noticed you didn't touch on any of the other statements I've made and again the President is not at fault it's those who run him and have run those in the past.
