A preview of the next two years??? Right after the mid-term elections Obama was on TV saying that he had done the things he did because of the "problems he inheirited," and because, "it was an emergency." Note the total absence of personal responsibility. Also note what that attitude probably predicts for the next two years.Bureaucracy: http://www.lohud.com/article/201011150328

The Obama Administration used taxpayer money to bail out the auto union's retirement funds and give them ownership in GM and Chrysler. Now the Administration has set up the new GM stock offering to exclude small investors: http://articles.moneycentral.msn.com/Investing/top-stocks/blog.aspx?ref=bfv&post=a0debe0e-e8ca-49b2-bac1-a80ec46500ba&_p=84011ea1-f66d-4aa6-88e0-b21398ec4e38

Obama Administration moving the US more and more to the left, while Europe moves more and more toward free markets. THAT is going to make the US still more uncompetitive in the marketplace and hurt our jobs market still more: http://www.investors.com/NewsAndAnalysis/Article/553750/201011151823/Europe-Embraces-Free-Market-Reforms.htm

El Al, the Israeli national airlines, is considered by just about everyone to be the safest airline in the world. If the USA is truly serious about airline safety then we should copy El Al's procedures, but we aren't. Why not? This is an important question because it looks like "body cavity" bombs may escape TSA's current inspection procedures: http://www.heraldscotland.com/news/world-news/al-qaeda-s-new-suicide-technique-the-body-cavity-bomber-1.922345

How to solve the jobs problem??? This might be a good idea (http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/topics/tags/?keywords=%20Art%20Laffer), BUT, wouldn't it be a better idea to just reduce the tax burden on businesses by 50-60 percent? Before you answer have a look at the business tax rates in other countries with whom we are competing: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tax_rates_around_the_world

The Deficit Commission plan to reduce our national debt..... painful..... AND TOTALLY UNNECESSARY. An easier, quicker, and less painful answer is to reduce taxes on businesses by 50%: http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2010-11-10/deficit-reduction-panel-s-plan-would-seek-to-cut-social-security-medicare.html

This has to be the most insane recommendation yet (no, I am not kidding). US Debt Commission recommends raising taxes by $1.000,000,000,000 (That's about $3300 for every man, woman, and child in the country): http://www.redstate.com/erick/2010/11/11/the-debt-commission-report/?utm_source=twitterfeed&utm_medium=twitter

No! No! No! No! No! TEA Partys must must not ally themselves with either political party, or allow either political party to speak on their behalf: http://hotlineoncall.nationaljournal.com/archives/2010/11/gop-insiders-ho.php

YOU MUST BE AWARE OF WHAT IS GOING ON. See, in their own words, what the liberals and socialists and communists in our country are saying and proposing:

The Obama Administration is saying that inflation is going down, and it is their actions that have done it. NOT TRUE!!!!! Inflation is going up as evidenced by prices at the grocery store and at the gas pumps.... AND.... it is going to get worse because the government is "monetizing" our nations debt (that means they are paying of the debt by printing more and more paper money and having the Fed use it to buy the debt from the US Treasury). How bad can that process get? Well, the country of Zimbabwe did that. Have a look at one of the currency bills they had to print because of the inflation caused by monetization: http://www.coins-and-banknotes.com/images//Products/Large/207328-100%20Trillion.jpg

The Obama Administration is also saying that the employment numbers are improving. NOPE! The numbers only look better because the Administration has been fiddling with the data.... changing the definitions. Read a lot more here: http://www.shadowstats.com/

How much do you and every member of your family owe on the national debt?





Seems like the Obama Administration doesn't agree with Lincoln.
Rather, they seem to have adopted the philosophy of:

OF THE GOVERNMENT
BY THE GOVERNMENT
FOR THE GOVERNMENT

RIGHT?




Are you unhappy with the way many things are going in the USA?  If you are then let your elected representatives hear from you.  Our nation is a "representative republic."  In other words a nation where our legislators are supposed to represent your wishes, but, if you don't let them hear from you how are they supposed to know what things concern you?  Generally liberals are more group oriented than are conservatives, and tend to be more activist in nature. That's why things in our country have been becoming more and more liberal in nature, even though conservatives outnumber the liberals.  Remember, our nation only works as our founders designed it to work if the citizens participate in its operation.
