Obama’s Great Recession
Our Chief-Story-Teller is claiming the US economy has improved since his inauguration. I wonder from which fortune cookie he pulled that nonsense. Then in June, he said: “the private sector is doing fine.” Sooner or later, OBama needs to hone in on the truth or get better at lying. Zen is not easy. It takes effort to attain nothingness.
Regardless of what Obama says, you will always have to unravel his fictional narrative. While he claims to have a “laser focus” on jobs, he also admits he sometimes forgets the impact of the recession. Todays walkaway: Regardless of his swag, the record show that the programs Obama has put in place have failed. Keynesianism doesn’t work, never has worked, and never will work.
For all of his talk about jobs and the economy, most of Obama’s economic and job ‘recovery’ speeches…

I can think of way more than three reasons, but most voters who are currently inclined to vote for Obama won’t read that much. Best to stick with the most obvious three.
Obama has played over 100 rounds of golf since becoming president. He has taken or sent his family on more vacations than we can count. He has no concern about the fact that he does this on the taxpayer’s tab.
The General Services Administration threw a $823,000 party in Las Vegas. It is as if the ‘gods of the marketplace’ believe they deserve these extravagant parties, as if they are perks that go along with the job.
Defense Secretary Leon Panetta charges the American tax payer $32,000 weekly as he jets to California for the weekend.
This administration approved a ½ billion dollar gift to Solyndra before it went bankrupt. When Solyndra went bankrupt the cost was passed on to the American taxpayer.
2. This administration’s belief that they are above the law:
The U.S. Justice Department approved the…

At some point we have to wake up and realize that the men and women we have put in office have only one plan to handle any scandal or crisis…lie until you are caught, then delay your resignation as long as possible. Next on the sacking list should be none other than Eric Holder.
Matthew Boyle of the Daily Caller reports that the scandal plagued U.S. Assistant Attorney General Ronald Weich plans to resign his position soon. Weich, you may remember, is the author of the February 2011 now “withdrawn” letter to Senator Grassley falsely denying that the DOJ was aware of gunwalking.
Weich, who has served as Attorney General Eric Holder’s emissary in congressional communications, will become the next dean of the University of Baltimore School of Law in July, according to the National Law Journal.
The DOJ official is the same Holder deputy who falsely told Congress that neither the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives nor any part of the Department of Justice ever allowed illicit firearms to “walk” across the U.S.-Mexico border — even as contrary facts emerged from the investigation into Operation Fast and Furious.
On Feb. 4, 2011, Weich wrote to Congress that the idea that “ATF…

As I sat waiting to get a haircut today, I picked up a copy of the April 2nd issue of People Magazine. Normally I can’t read this rag. The stories it carries are about as substantive, uplifting, and palatable as watching back-to-back reruns of “The View” or “Judge Judy”. It’s the literary equivalent of daytime TV, full of tawdry, shallow, narcissistic navel gazing by celebrities, and photos of other also-ran celebs doing nothing of significance in the larger scheme of life, the Universe, and everything.
Then I turned to page 82 (it was a long wait) where a story entitled “Scenes from a Beautiful Life” caught my attention immediately. The couple featured in the piece, Christian and Stephanie Nielson, had been the subject of a video posted on Mormon.org by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The video had gone viral but had staying power judging by the number of times I kept seeing it pop up on mainstream social media sites I frequent.
And, for good reason. The story they tell of their freak plane crash (Christian is, or was, a private aviation enthusiast) and their being horribly burned and disfigured is a touching and heartbreaking example of the incredible adversity the most ordinary of people can find themselves enduring. The expectation of today’s popular culture environment would be that the formerly comely couple would lose interest in one another after losing their physical attractiveness. They smashed such low expectations by rekindling their marriage through a whole new courtship. They reconnected with their children, even though it wasn’t easy for the children or their parents, and became an even stronger family today than before.
As a fellow Mormon, everything about their story I could relate to. I could put myself in their shoes and wonder of I would react as valiantly as they did to their trials.
I hadn’t known that Stephanie was writing a book on her comeback. The book’s title is Heaven is Here. You can order it on Amazon.com.
