Unelected Group of People

If you need any more information regarding the Regime that is the Obama Administration’s his latest use of third-world politics in his threat” aimed at the Supreme Court;

“I’m confident that the Supreme Court will not take what would be an unprecedented, extraordinary step of overturning a law that was passed by a strong majority of a democratically elected Congress.”

2011 Top Ten News Stories

I hesitate to call my list “news stories” because many of them have not been covered by the Obama-media because they would make the liberal administration look like the miserable failure that it has been.  On with the list.

  1. The Economy:  If you look past the cheerleading reporting that the recession is over and jobs are being created, and a falling unemployment percent, you might just see how bad things still are.  I don’t remember a time where I have sweated my employment for so long.  I am not consumed, but the gnawing feeling is always there in the background.  As of November 2011 the U6 Unemployment (U-6 = Total unemployed, plus all persons marginally attached to the labor force, plus total employed part time for economic reasons, as a percent of the civilian labor force plus all persons marginally attached to the labor force) rate is 15.6 percent. 

The Forest For The Trees

“Obama campaign spokesman Ben LaBolt contended that the president has not broken his promise on [taking money from] lobbyists, saying in a statement that the Times analysis “misses the forest for the trees.”

The accusation has to be particularly hurtful to Obama since it came from their long-time pubic relations firm, The New York Times.  If you factor in “liberal-speak” there is a missing word in the quote from Obama’s spokesman and that would be the word  “directly.”  Once the money is bundled and rebundled and given by lobbyists, but from their personal accounts it’s all mixed up.  Who could follow it.  You would have to be as naive as a mass media journalist to believe that lobbying money doesn’t make its way into Obama’s coffers. 

Boeing Boeing Gone

I have not had the opportunity to see the movie interpretation of Ayn Rand’s Atlas Shrugged (i.e. the closest theater is about an hour away), but it feels more and more like I am living the story.  I’ve read the novel twice since my first time when I was awakened bythe vultures depicted by Rand.   It was hard to be disgusted by a parasitic nation that sucks the life out of productive people to prolong their reign.  It is hard to watch former great companies like Jack Welch’s General Electric mooch off of Obama to gain favor for their subsidiaries while, in my mind, pretending to be a capitalist company.  Businesses have always done this, but the level of government interference seems obscene.
