Update: US Has Dropped Out of 10 Most Economically Free Countries
The Obama administration continues to shackle entire sectors of the economy with regulation, including health care, finance and energy. The intervention impedes both personal freedom and national prosperity.
No surprise here… 10s of 1000 of new regulations each year, an out of control EPA, a huge federal government, endless printing of money, high unemployment, increasing energy and healthcare costs, etc. etc.
UPDATE: ANOTHER FAILURE – OBAMATEUR LOSES OVER $10 BILLION IN AUTO BAILOUT!
The unions received their full retirements while creditors (non-liberal ones anyway) got screwed….. as well as the taxpayers. The problem is the need for bailouts will continue in the future.
Al Qaeda Stronger than Before
This pResident’s War on Terror, …. uh… ahem…. excuse me…. War on Man-Caused Disasters is an utter failure. From announcing when he was pulling out of Iraq, against anyone’s sane judgement, to tying the hands of our soldiers when it comes to engagements in Afghanistan, (where there are higher incidents of death than during the Bush years) – and it’s not simply because of the “surge”, this pResident has made action in Afghanistan more political than that of Vietnam. He has handed Libya, Egypt (thankfully the Egyptian military has stopped – no thanks to obame), Syria (fortunately obame did not get his way in removing the present government) and now Iraq to the terrorists. His record shows that he is not interested in fighting terrorism. He may perform for the camera but his actions say otherwise.
Update: A Nuclear Iran!
The obame administration did not learn any lessons from what Chamberlain experienced with Hitler. Meanwhile, Debbie Wasserface Shultz get caught in lies, while trying to please her (Debbie’s) highness’ desire when questioned by constituents about Iran, sanctions and its continued ability to work on a bomb.
Labor Participation at levels not seen since the last pRegressive pResident
But listening to the leftist talking heads we are in a recovery. They love to site the DOW as an indicator. But any sane person knows that is due to artificial pumping of cash from the Fed. Labor participation keeps dropping regardless of the trillions spent by this pResident. The mindless drones will continue to utter the dumbed down talking points – “It’s Bush’s fault”, “It is the result of the tsunami, kiosks and ATMs”, “Unemployment is at 7%”, “Baby Boomers are retiring” etc. etc.
The unemployment rate uses labor participation in its calculus. When job growth is stagnant and people are no longer participating in the labor force, they are no longer counted and the unemployment rate will drop. The mindless drones and low information voters (they are one in the same) will continue to site the DOW and “low” unemployment, even though both numbers are based on lies.
Note: these are legitimate criticisms and by no way indicate that I hate the president because of his race.
Update: It did not take long for the mindless drones and low information voters to blame the “Baby Boomers are retiring” dumbed down talking point for the decline of the Labor Participation Rate.
The age group which has dropped out of the labor participation rate more-so than any other group is NOT the Baby Boomers. Age group 30-59, which makes up 50% of the working population, account for labor participation rate plunge since 2007. The same age group account for 75% of the decline in the past year! So, this pResident is directly to blame for the poor job hunting conditions that we presently experience. Nice try, but dumbed down talking points are not valid in the sane world.
