When Obama Says “Sacrifice”, He Means ONLY YOU

You would think with all of the talk about how Barack Obama needs to get some rest, the man might start to ease up a little and take a break. Not the case with this man on the go. Top of today’s list: Education.

And I quote:

Every so often, throughout our history, a generation of Americans bears the responsibility of seeing this country through difficult times and protecting the dream of its founding for posterity. This is a responsibility that has fallen to our generation. Meeting it will require steering our nation’s economy through a crisis unlike any we have seen in our time. In the short-term, that means jumpstarting job creation, re-starting lending, and restoring confidence in our markets and our financial system. But it also means taking steps that not only advance our recovery, but lay the foundation for lasting, shared prosperity.

When you say that this is a responsibility that has fallen to our generation, wouldn’t it be more accurate to say the next eight generations to come? I mean, let’s be honest. Your generation isn’t making the tough choices and sacrifices you talked about at the inauguration. Your creating more debt and spending money that you your generation won’t be around to payback.

In other words, thank you President BO for running up a bill and expecting the rest of us who DIDN’T VOTE FOR YOU to pick up the check.

Obama Declares War on Business, Unemployment Spikes

Back in the 1960s, Lyndon Johnson gave us the War on Poverty. In the 1970s, Richard Nixon launched the War on Drugs. Now that we have seen President Barack Obama’s first-year legislative agenda, we know what kind of a war he intends to wage.

It is no wonder that markets are imploding around us. Obama is giving us the War on Business.

Imagine that some hypothetical enemy state spent years preparing a “Manchurian Candidate” to destroy the U.S. economy once elected. What policies might that leader pursue?

He might discourage private capital from entering the financial sector by instructing his Treasury secretary to repeatedly promise a brilliant rescue plan, but never actually have one. Private firms, spooked by the thought of what government might do, would shy away from transactions altogether. If the secretary were smooth and played rope-a-dope long enough, the whole financial sector would be gone before voters could demand action.

Another diabolical idea would be to significantly increase taxes on whatever firms are still standing. That would require subterfuge, since increasing tax rates would be too obvious. Our Manchurian Candidate would have plenty of sophisticated ideas on changing the rules to get more revenue without increasing rates, such as auctioning off “permits.”

These steps would create near-term distress. If our Manchurian Candidate leader really wanted to knock the country down for good, he would have to provide insurance against any long-run recovery.

If you are ever end up walking to the unemployment line in order to find a job or collect unemployment benefits, then remember to thank your local Obama ’08 Supporter!
