“Every business guy I know in the country is frightened of Barack Obama and the way he thinks.”

– Steve Wynn

Moonbats on Parade

I’ve observed leftists getting all wee-weed up over somebody on Fox News Business saying “don’t be poor.”

When did the concept of bettering yourself and improving your lot in life become an idea that sensible people would find offensive?

It is certainly better advice that the moon-bat’s deity, Barack Hussein Obama has been giving to a big chunk of his voter base, i.e. “be poor.”

Just look at the numbers. Minority unemployment is at record highs. Unemployment levels for minority teens are at levels that would be a national crisis if a Republican was in the White House. Non participation in the work force is at record high levels (currently 91 million, up from 79 million in 2008) that haven’t been seen in 40 years (yup, the economy in our so called “recovery” is at Jimmy Carter Recession levels), the number of people on food stamps have doubled since our Dear Leader took office, the average income is down, not getting laid off is the new raise, food and fuel prices have risen dramatically, and we are still stuck in the unprecedented worst economic recovery since the Great Depression. As Mr. Reynolds says, “They told me that if I voted for Mitt Romney, the rich would get richer and the poor would get poorer, and they were right!” Let’s not forget the National debt, which is at $17.5 Trillion and rising.

Historically, booming recoveries after a recession have been a bi-partisan event. Reagan, Clinton, and G.W. Bush benefited from booming recoveries that historically follow a recession. How did Barry get stuck with a non-recovery? Simple, he worked very hard to strangle that recovery in its crib.  Barry is much more interested in:

1: His golf game

2: His agenda of wealth distribution

than he is in doing anything that would actually help the US economy and the average US citizen.  Sorry folks, if you are in, or want to be in, or used to be in, the middle class, you just aren’t in his core demographics.

Seriously, it takes a serious partisan avoidance of reality to take that much offense at someone saying to better your lot in life through self improvement.

Quote of the Day

“The key to understanding liberals is realizing that they are immune to argument. The concept underlying the idea of a debate is that facts and reasoning can lead one to change his previous conclusions. But liberals begin with their conclusions; facts and reasoning that may undermine the preexisting conclusion must be at least ignored, if not actively attacked. This is why you see liberals shouting about jailing global warming deniers as blizzards rage outside.

The problem liberals always face is that the world refuses to honor their preconceived notions. Sometimes we get lucky and the liberal wises up, at least a little. For instance, Jimmy Carter woke up to the fact that the Soviet Union was composed of genuine bastards when they invaded Afghanistan, and in fits and starts he took action. This shocking burst of foreign policy competence is almost single-handedly responsible for raising Carter’s ranking on the list of America’s greatest presidents all the way up to 39th. Zombie Millard Fillmore was totally bummed.

Now we are in the almost unimaginable position of looking back at Jimmy Carter as an example of comparatively sure, savvy leadership. The Russians invaded Afghanistan and Carter armed the rebels. The Russians invaded Crimea and Barack Obama went on Ellen to hear the hostess gush about how much America loves Obamacare.”

“The Obama economy is now the minimum wage economy. I think we can do better than that, I think America can do better than that.”

“Who is going to be the first to apologize to Mitt Romney? The President, the Vice President or Hillary Rodham Clinton?All three mocked the GOP presidential candidate in 2012 when he called Russia “our number one geopolitical foe.”

Obama said his opponent was “stuck in a Cold War mind warp.” Clinton, then Secretary of State, offered her two cents, saying, “In many of the areas where we are working to solve problems, Russia has been an ally.”

Biden added that “This is not 1956.”

“The president doesn’t trust his commander, can’t stand Karzai, doesn’t believe in his own strategy and doesn’t consider the war to be his. For him, it’s all about getting out.”

– Robert Gates, former Obama administration Secretary of Defense on our Dear Leader‘s attitude toward Afghanistan.

President Obama told his OFA minions that “The work you are doing is god’s work.”

Keep in mind that BHO also defined sin as “Being out of alignment with my values.

This fits in with his hardcore extremist followers being cultists.

Time to look at some numbers again…

Once again, it’s time to look at the numbers.

As we enter the sixth year of our Dear Leader’s “Occupy the White House Golf Tour”, let us review some numbers from the past five years.

In 2008, there were 145 million Americans in the work force, 79.4 million Americans not in the labor force, and the federal debt was $9.4 Trillion.

Today, in early 2014, we have 145 million Americans in the work force, 91.8 million Americans not in the labor force and a federal debt of $17.3 Trillion.

So in five years there has not added any new Americans to the labor force, but there are 12 million more Americans who could be in the labor force who are not, and the federal debt has increased by $7.9 trillion.

So new jobs created over the past five years is zero. As you have often heard every times the new unemployment numbers come out, the US economy needs to create 120,000 jobs a month just to cover new workers entering the work force. Over five years, that comes to 7.2 Million jobs. Given that the number of Americans in the work force has remained flat, the Obama Economy has not only failed to create any new jobs, it has actively removed jobs. This is an appalling performance, especially since the last recession ending in mid 2009, so for most of the last five years, American should have been in an economic recovery. A period were traditionaly there is not just job growth, but rapid and strong job growth. That has been the pattern in every recession/recovery for the past 100 years. This includes the recession of the late 1970s, which was the worst recession since the Great Drepression and the roaring recovery that occured in the early 1980s. Why is is the Obama non-recovery from the second worst recession the sole exception to economic history?

A coordinated political attack

Recently, our Dear Leader claimed that there was “Not even a smidgeon of corruption” at the IRS run by his political appointees.

Well, as we have learned, everything that BHO says has an expiration date.  Sometimes that date is even before the words come out of his mouth.  Remember that the left leaning Washington Post, among others, selected one of Barry’s Catch Phrases as the Lie of the Year.

So we should take his claim of no corruption with several large barges worth of salt.

Let’s review a few key facts were.  The IRS conducted actual, probing audits of multiple 501(c)(4) organizations that made their list of organizations with certain key words.  Some of those key words were left leaning, but of the groups actually targeted by an IRS audit, 100% were right of center “Conservative” groups.

Now let’s review what the Inspector General for the IRS had to say on the matter,  “Our audit did not find evidence that the IRS used the ‘progressives’ identifier as selection criteria for potential political cases between May 2010 and May 2012.”  There are a few more gems in his report to Congress:

In total, 30 percent of the organizations we identified with the words ‘progress’ or ‘progressive’ in their names were processed as potential political cases. In comparison, our audit found that 100 percent of the tax-exempt applications with ‘Tea Party,’ ‘Patriots,’ or ’9/12′ in their names were processed as potential political cases during the timeframe of our audit.”

“While we have multiple sources of information corroborating the use of Tea Party and other related criteria we described in our report, including employee interviews, emails and other documents, we found no indication in any of these other materials that ‘progressives’ was a term used to refer cases for scrutiny for political campaign intervention.”

Of the 296 organizations flagged with “political” keywords, only six were “progressive” groups.   That is 2% of the 296 organizations selected by the IRS.

Let’s not forget Lois Lerner, the senior IRS official who pleaded the Fifth rather than answer questions from Congress.

Clearly, there is more than just “smidgeon of corruption” at the IRS under the reign of our Dear Leader.  This Culture of Corruption probably runs much farther and deeper in the Obama administration than just the IRS.

Update:  The IRS targeted Republican Christine O’Donnell and then leaked her tax records to the press.
