The Economy And Barack Obama

First, Its ridiculous that so many in government and elsewhere in society are still vacillating over whether the economy is in a recession, well as of this date the economy of The United States of America has been in a depression for over two years; simply put the economy is a wreck--and this is directly due to the corrupt policies of the G.W. Bush organization! Of course many UN-American Republicans won't speak honestly about it because they don't want to say anything negative about the current administration. The economy is even more of a wreck than it was during the Reagan administration; for those who should know but don't, when Ronald Reagan took office in 1981 the United States was the biggest creditor nation in the world and when Ronald Reagan left office in 1989--the United States was the biggest debtor nation in the world! Many people, mainly the upper classes liked Reaganomics--simply because the corruptness and incompetence made it possible for them to make tremendous amounts of money. Money that to a large extent was generated at the expense of America and the middle and lower classes. Unemployment was high, many businesses left operations in America for foreign lands, a huge deindustrialization ensued, Reaganomics was a disaster, for the economy, for the environment and for the American people! Just look at what happens every time a Republican is president, they run up massive debt, gas prices go up--and the last three Republican presidents have started wars that were unnecessary. Republicans like Democrats are very much in favor of big government, albeit they go about it in somewhat different ways. Many people think that if consumer spending is high--then its a good economy; but this ignorant and foolish notion is incorrect. Like now, large numbers of the American people are in debt--they like the US government are borrowing for everything they purchase, basically its two types of people who believe that being in debt makes for a good economy--ignorant people and fools! At present under the G.W. Bush organization, over one billion dollars each day is borrowed from China and other nations. And that in no way makes for a good economy! Now Barack Obama--who fortunately is not the president at this moment! Wants to increase government even more and turn The United States of America into even more of a nanny state (socialism run amuck) and admittedly will not even try to balance the budget (because it would hurt)--but this nonsensical belief that correcting the excesses of the G.W. Bush administration and other previous administrations would be too hard on the American people--is a false option--and the fact that Barack Obama would think this way, yet again shows his profound lack of understanding and poor judgement. There is so much waste within American government that it would be easy to balance the budget and not hurt Americans--but the UN-American socialist Barack Obama would never think to do this. So he has no plans to balance the budget and instead of being responsible he wants to impose much higher taxes upon the American people. Its true the trickle down theory very popular with the Republicans for the most doesn't work; and it can't be expected that giving a wealthy person a tax break will somehow trickle down to the middle and lower classes. What will work in the trickle down theory is when businesses of all types, big and small get significant tax breaks! Barack Obama also won't correctly deal with the illegal Mexican problem, a problem which is dragging down the American economy and is costing American citizens their jobs and a lot more besides. Its true illegal Mexicans add billions to the American economy--but they cost billions more than they contribute! In addition to this--many bring tremendous quantities of drugs with them and much more crime, rapes and murders Et cetra. These illegal Mexicans (even if they were legalized) are mostly neither good for the economy nor are they good for America!

Barack Obama--A Closer Look Part One

On May 31, 2008 Barack Obama resigned from his church of twenty years, Trinity United Church of Christ. But why did he take so long to resign (twenty years), if he truly did not/does not agree with the hate, divisiveness and derisiveness preached at his former church? Its obvious why he waited so long before he denounced Jeremiah Wright, he said Jeremiah Wright was someone he considered a friend and spiritual mentor. What a mentor--this is the kind of man Barack Obama looks to for advice! Barack Obama said "I am outraged by the comments that were made and saddened over the spectacle that we saw yesterday"--the spectacle being Jeremiah Wright's rant. He wasn't so outraged that he stopped supporting the church--in fact he has given tens of thousands of dollars in support of Trinity United Church of Christ, over $22,000 in 2006 and over $27,000 in 2007. Barack Obama was witness to many such performances over the years--staying at the least shows poor judgement and a lack of wisdom; staying at the most is a strong indicator that he agreed with what he heard Jeremiah Wright preach! Barack Obama's long delayed grudging denouncement of Jeremiah Wright and his long delayed grudging resignation from Trinity United Church of Christ has been out of political necessity; if he were not running for the office of the president he would still be a supporting member of the church as he was for twenty years. Jeremiah Wright has a decidedly anti Christian message--a message against white people, against Israel, against Jewish people, against The United States of America--and pro Arab (Hamas) terrorist! Jeremiah Wright blames the woes of Negro people in America on white people--when in fact the woes of most Negro people in America are caused by Negro's themselves--and until they (Negro people) wise up and place blame where it truly belongs--things will not get better for them but worse! But this is not the only place where Barack Obama has shown poor judgement and a lack of wisdom; Barack Obama has a lengthy history of associations with people of ill repute e.g. Bill Ayres an admitted terrorist bomber, Rashid Khalidi a PLO terrorist supporter and activist. Samantha Power, an advisor who advocates the end of USA aid to Israel. His national co chairman General Merrill McPeak retired, blames the Jews of NY and Miami for the USA foreign policy in favor of Israel--as if Jews are the only people in The United States of America who love and support Israel. Barack Obama has a poor record toward Israel--he was against the security fence which protects Israelis from suicide bombers and other acts of terrorism. (Since the fence went up--the number of murders and other terrorist attacks against Jews have markedly decreased!) He will not label the Iranian Guard a terrorist entity, he believes in "talking" to the terrorist government of Iran without any preconditions, not even the end of their nuclear weapons program, that this is the way to solve the Iranian problem. Only a fool would believe that talking is an option when dealing with a terrorist government who has openly declared on many occasions that they will not rest until Israel is wiped off the face of the Earth--and who are working toward that end with missile delivery systems and a nuclear weapons program. And who are the major reason for unrest in the middle east and major cause of terrorism in Iraq due to their state sponsored terrorism! Why has Barack Obama surrounded himself with so many people who are anti Israel--when there are many within the Democratic Party who support Israel? And let's not forget James Baker III a man vehemently anti Israel--Barack Obama thinks it would be a good idea to send him to negotiate with the Arab terrorists (PLO) in Israel. Barack Obama also likes Chuck Hagel another anti Israel fool. On both sides of the isle Barack Obama reaches out to people who are anti Israel. Barack Obama is not a friend of Israel--he would be even worse than G.W. Bush has been toward Israel! And that means more trouble for The United States of America. In conclusion, I can easily see that Barack Obama is a personable and likable man; and I was immediately attracted to his style of speaking and to some of the good things he says he wants to do! The good things Barack Obama says he wants to do--are truly good; but there are things he says and other things he does not say which are not good and in fact Un-American--its these which make him the wrong man for the office of the president, as well as the other things written in this blog.
