In the early days of this column, I provided simple tips such as how to reduce
your gasoline costs. But since Obamageddon hit, those kinds of things seem like
a mouse compared to the elephant that's really hitting us in our pocketbooks.|
While I'd like to ignore Obama rather than give that narcissist any additional
free publicity, it's not possible to talk about the current financial mess without
griping about Obama. Our economy-devastater in chief has driven the eye-popping
spending that has resulted in the massive job losses, homelessness, food stamp
rolls, and other signs of economic devastation.
Last year alone, he racked up a $6 trillion in deficit. Our
misrepresentatives in CONgress let him do it. They all belong in prison with no
hope of parole. Ever.
Wait. Did I say $6 trillion in 2012? Do I not mean, instead, $6 trillion
since he took office and $1.2 trillion of that was GW's fault? No. This is what
the state-run media say, and they are lying.
The GAO (General Accounting Office) looked at 2012. They release a report
earlier this year saying that when you apply "honest accounting methods" (their
exact words), the actual deficit spending by the Obama (mis)administration was a
staggering $6 trillion in 2012. That year alone. It is not the "mere" $1
trillion of misallocation of resources reported by the state-run media, our
criminal CONgress, or the other retards, conmen, and psychopaths involved in
making this crisis what it is.
The GW thing is another fabrication. GW left office with a budget deficit of
around $400 billion. Yes, that is the actual number. This was bad, but less than
a third of what Obama has repeatedly said it was.
Normally, the incoming POTUS uses his predecessor's budget during his first
year and proposes his own for the following year.
What happened in 2008 is the Obama folks larded up the incoming budget with an
additional $800 billion of spending, swelling it up to a $1.2 trillion deficit.
Then Obama spent the next four years spewing the lie that he "inherited" this
mess from GW.
Let's get something very clear, here. You cannot add by subtracting or
vice-versa. They are opposite operations. You know that and I know that. But
undergirding Obamanomics is the idea that you CAN add by subtracting and
The govt doesn't have resources of its own to stimulate with, it must remove
resource from the economy and reallocate them to do a "stimulus." So it is
subtraction, not addition, being performed. Therefore, the more "stimulus"
spending there is, the weaker the economy gets.
The spending does not go toward creating wealth, so it does not create jobs.
It's diverted from that use, so it actually costs jobs. This, my friends, is
exactly why we have had record unemployment, record homelessness, and record
numbers of people on food stamps--record spending since Obama took office.
Clipping dollar off coupons is chasing a mouse while the Obama elephant
stomps all over your living room (and everyone in it). Why do we know it's
Think of NASA for a moment. When NASA sends a rocket into space, they are
very concerned about the payload weight. They know it takes far more fuel to
hoist a 200 ton payload than a 5 ton one.
Somehow, the logic of this completely
escapes the proponents of economic payload-increasing Obamanomics. They "think"
that the more burden you put on the rocket of the economy, the less fuel you
need to go a certain height. But the reality is we don't have enough fuel to
support the payload they've inflicted upon us, and the economy is thus in
The more burden you add to the economy
with the overhead of federal spending, the more you pull the economy down.
Increasing federal overhead does not "stimulate" the economy, it saddles the economy.
When companies are struggling to survive, they reduce overhead. That's why we
have layoffs (and other sorts of cutbacks). While this nation struggles to
survive, Obama aggressively pushes to increase overhead. The basic concept of
doing like the rest of us and reducing your overhead totally escapes him. This
should not be surprising, I suppose, considering the sliver spoon treatment he's
had his whole adult life.
He just can't comprehend normal financial management.
He thinks money grows on trees. For him personally, it has done just that
(almost literally, as he made millions off dead tree sales, that is, sales of
his idiotic books).
Obama is personally driving the Depression deeper with his aggressive
spending. Granted, he was a D-student who nearly flunked out of Occidental, but
can he really be THAT stupid that he can't differentiate between addition and
subtraction? Or is he doing this intentionally?
Hard to say for sure, but I think I know
the answer. And if I'm right, there is hope for change. Even if Obama isn't
arrested or doesn't resign, there is hope. I think it's possible to get him to
change his destructive behavior, by appealing to his narcissism.
You can write to His Highness directly. Tell him it's obvious that diverting
limited resources from productive uses and engaging in record deficit spending
hugely damages the economy. Adding overhead such as massively more debt to the
economy and expecting it to "recover" is like adding massively more payload to a
rocket and expecting it to get into space on the same amount of fuel. Aint gonna
Tell him that having record numbers of jobless, record numbers of homeless,
and record numbers on food stamps is the legacy he will be remembered for. That
is, he'll be remembered as a failure. We see what he's doing, because the
evidence is so overwhelming. But he can stop.
Tell him that his spending deficit last year was more than three times what
it cost us to prosecute World War I and World War II combined. Let him know he
is failing as POTUS. Not doing badly, but totally failing.
This guy lives on the glow. He wants to be adored. If, instead, he is told
the plain truth that he is failing spectacularly, perhaps he will understand he
is better off changing his extremely bad conduct.
Note that if you send anything angry-sounding, it will be dismissed out of
hand. And there is that drone thing...
Be respectful, and you may get your opinion heard. Copy the letter to your
misrepresentatives in CONgress. If you don't like sending paper, write a letter,
spell check it, proofread it, and submit it via their respective Websites.
