According to the latest speech by Obama, nothing is his fault and if anyone wants to find the culprits of the wrecked economy, just look under the tent and those wascally Republicans are there. They are conspiring and slowing down all those measures Obama has been proposing to fix things. Oops, well, he spoke about them again but has actually done nothing. If fact, the only things he has done, and I mean through his Executive branch departments, is to further smash free enterprise and stifle innovation.
What I mean by that is this; the Obama EPA has decided that the 37% of our country;s electricity created with coal is to be curtailed. They say there is too much pollution created by burning coal so we have to stop it. Yet there is no replacement identified (solar is 0.11%) and it will be quite interesting to see what the Liberia's in the Northeast will heat their homes with this winter. Since oil and fuel oil specifically, is also hated by the Obama Administration and the Liberal's far and wide, I will be checking the results of that curtailment too.
The war on energy by Obama and his minions goes to the heart of our American economy. Oil and natural gas fuel the trucks and cars we use every day. It runs the motors of development and all other important aspects of the country. Coal runs the electricity we expect to perform when we flick the switch. How better to wreck the place than to curtail through regulations and laws purporting to save the planet but allowing our veggies to go bad in the fridge. I believe this is a liberal plan to bring free enterprise to its knees and send all Americans into away of life of begging.
Now we get to see up close and personal what the end result of a liberal philosophy made real does to the world. Just as the USSR and its minions have failed, the liberals running Detroit, Stockton and even California can take a vibrant place and make it trash. In Detroit's example of failure it also contains a racial element. After the 1967 riots by Detroit's blacks, the white folks fled the city and moved to the suburbs. Coleman Young was then elected Mayor and he proceeded to destroy the city. Whining all the time that it was the white folks fault. Even though they did not live there. All Detroit laws and policies since his inauguration were based on race, favoring his people of course, and there you have it. Look at the results. Many videos of Detroit have shown us the wreckage. Each vacant home and every neighborhood there that is Hiroshima-like, is the result of a black mayor and his policies.
California is headed to a Detroit finish very quickly. Without a hardy and meaningful opposition in the state, we see runaway liberalism and its terrible aftermath. Even though Independents and "no party" represent up to 30% of the state's voters, they are not represented in the legislature. The Democrat majority is the beneficiary of the indie vote so they get the super majority. Just like Detroit, California has made Hiroshima-like results in the inner valley's, inner cities and mountains of our once great state. The unions and their lackey's in the Legislature, the Democrats, are bleeding the taxpayers dry and raising the taxes and fees so high we have become the worst of the 50 states to do and startup a business.
Now Obama, the lamest President in my lifetime, has taken the lesson of Detroit national. He could have gone to Detroit to make his speech but that would be a bit risky. There are probably not to many folks there who would attend and less who would agree that his policies, past, present or future, would do them any good. The country has lost millions of jobs because of extreme laws and regulations and all the democrats can do is send those people a check every month to keep them quiet. Hell, Obama can't even approve a pipeline (we have thousands of miles of similar ones) to bring more energy to the market. It is truly amazing how maniacal Obama is and his storm troopers do their seig heil for him (Jay Carney and Obama calling the IRS etal as a big nothing). That includes the MSM.
Obamacare is causing Armageddon for jobs as well. We all said it would but back when it was being sold with bribes to Ben Nelson and Mary Landrieu and the Nancy Pelosi led House, they just saw a monument to themselves. The country hates Obamacare and hopefully the House will not fund it. I think as soon as we get a Republican President again, John Roberts should resign his post as Chief Justice so that he can go away and start his mea culpa's for helping wreck the country. Anyone see the importance of one vote?
America has gone from the greatest to a also ran in one life, mine. I worked hard and put thirty million through the economy during my working life. All for not apparently. Obama and the democrats have taken a golden goose and killed it. Now they are eating the carcass and the bones are what the real Americans are going to get.
