Have you noticed how the Wall Street Dow goes up and seems to be healthy until Barack Obama and/or Timothy Geithner, his financial puppeteer, show up on the scene?! Maybe they need to stay off the TV, stop sending out their doom and gloom press releases to the news media, and secret messages to millions spammed onto their grassroots coalition email list calling for them to undermine the United States of America Constitutional government.
At least what the political news commentary bloggers have to say about this situation is done in public and not in private. Maybe the administration does need to be thrown out of office, because they have publicly admitted they are still trying to find their niche.
Translation: They have no idea what they are doing and they intend to continue doing what they are doing until there's nothing left in the nation. But, at the very least Americans would have to know they tried!
There are not too many personnel in the Obama Administration who seem to know what they are doing, except that they know they're working and collecting a steady paycheck while telling the rest of the American people that they are the problem. After all, if they would only pull up their bootstraps and tighten their belts and suck it up, then the Obama Administration might be able to help them better. And, oh! Don't forget to pay your taxes while you're at it!
What do they care if citizens are now becoming more vocal about no longer having that job where they worked so hard in order to pay their bills, feed their families, buy houses and, perhaps, even a swing set or two for their own children? They would even skip pass the meat stalls and refrain from purchasing that expensive Kobe beef Obama serves to dinner guests at the White House (they'll just rely on Obama to tell them how good it is when its fixed by in-house chefs to entertain dignitaries).
Is this how life is going to work in America now? Stay home and fend for yourself in the best way you can, because the government will make the only decision about who will work, where, when, how, and whether or not they will pay you a decent wage? But, then, if everybody is poor, that will certainly ensure equality in the nation, won't it?
This new administration acts as if rich, poor, middle class, and capitalism are only divisive terms. Besides, now that Barack Obama is strutting in and out of the Oval Office, isn't it only what he mandates in the moment which counts, anyhow! Oh yeah?!
Tell me. Are the laws of the land now created by the White House going over the heads of Congressional elected leaders straight to the people from out of Obama's mouth? As the saying goes, his "mouth is not a prayer book." Laws appear to be made legal now by merely pronouncing them as such by either the Executive Branch, the Legislative Branch, or the Judicial Branch. In fact, the Legislative Branch of our government is still the only Constitutional method of creating legally enforceable bills into laws to be of value to societal mores.
As long as Obama and any member of his Cabinet continue to stand before the Congress and the American people and relentlessly run down this nation, the Dow will pow this nation every time and leave no room for any real recovery from all of these many false starts made by this present administration. What's more, unless the American people stop propping up this wrong-headed administration and stop falling for Obama's edicts that state "Only the government is able to fix (their every economic problem)," then they will become all the more totally dependent on a governmental entity (his) which has only their best interest at heart and not America's.
This kind of illicit "change" is called, "Socialism-Communism-Marxism," and every citizen ought to burn those stark terms into their brain. And, having done so, they need to resolve to never allow any of those ungodly forces to come in and usurp our American Constitutional Republic and the truly Godly, democratic government we inherited as a nation from our forefathers and foremothers.
Remember?! During the long-term running of the Obama election campaign to become the first black President of the United States, he had thoroughly convinced the politicos and news media and many citizens that he was the best and only candidate who could go into that office, hit the ground running, and (immediately) overcome the downturn of the American economical situation. And all the people said, Yes, that's true and "Yes we can!" He said he could do that for us, because he has the credentials and he knows exactly what to do to help us! We can all just forget that he lacks the business and political experience! What do Sen. John McCain and Gov. Sarah Palin have that Obama can't get?! Bring him on in!!!
However, in less than one month after Obama was inaugurated and installed into the White House, I happened to see him on a TV interview in which he had let it slip of his own volition that he was not an economist. I was shocked at his brazen admission, because how many times had we been given to believe that Obama was far better at handling economic situations than McCain and Palin put together? And, we were also told, at that moment, that academic factor was more important than having any candidate who would be better at keeping this nation safe and secure from all enemies foreign and domestic.
Don't forget that Obama had done practically the same thing when he had his first interview conducted by Al Arabia (a station from out of Saudi Arabia) in which Obama finally publicly and proudly embraced his Muslim African AND Indonesian heritage. And, folk, we need to have a leader of the free world who won't look you in your face and deliberately, knowingly, and willfully lie -- then turn around and accuse the one who revealed it of being hateful and, themself, the liar. That is not good and must not be allowed to let stand!
We have hope, if we refuse to allow anybody else to "Change" and redefine "Hope" for us.
Write and tell Congress to begin to IMPEACH OBAMA NOW!
