Obama Says “Romney and Ryan are Extremists”

Posted by madjillmom on August 27, 2012

PresBO is very comfortable throwing around the term extremist.  His minions are using extreme and extremist with every breath. It is pretty interesting that a man who called the Ft. Hood massacre mere “work place violence” is so able to see extremism and call it so.  He is unable to see extremists in Major Nidal Hassan or domestic terrorist/neighbor/fellow traveler Bill Ayers, or the right Reverend Wright whose church he attended for 20 years.  Yet, the specter of these two accomplished men, Gov. Mitt Romney and Congressman Paul Ryan, causes Barack and Biden to run from channel to channel yelling “EXTREMIST”!

Extreme is what this current path is.  We write “disability”checks to able-bodied fat men who spend their time being overweight babies in diapers in giant baby beds constructed by the fat men themselves. We pass 2700 page bills that no one can decipher that will control healthcare in this country. That same bill results in 12,000 pages of regulations that no one can understand. We steal from our children and give the money to green energy companies with no real prospect of surviving, with red flags all through their financials. Our bloated government lends money to friends of Biden to open a luxury car dealership in the Ukraine. We have handed out welfare to generations that now have no working role models in their lives. We encourage young people to go into debt for a college degree and then take away any hope of a good job and a better life than their parents. This is the extreme insanity that is our current government.

Yes, it is extreme to try to live within our means. Yes, it is extreme to be business friendly. Yes, it is extreme to keep a strong military in a world where there is Russia, China, Iran, Islamic Extremism and North Korea. Yes, these two men are pretty scary if you want a weakened America and a future like Greece.

If Romney and Ryan are extremists, then bring them on.  We need extreme to fix this mess.

Summers Says Governments Should Borrow More Money

Posted by madjillmom on June 9, 2012

Democratic Economist, Former Treasury Secretary, Obama’s Economic Council Head, and Harvard President has come out to tell us that governments should borrow more money to keep the worldwide recession at bay. Ok.

I am pretty certain that Lawrence Summers has a pretty healthy retirement account.  Same with Warren Buffett. Perhaps they should put their money where there mouth is and lend money to bankrupt countries.  Banks and private individuals should not make it a habit to lend to countries that can’t pay back those loans.  Remember the sub-prime housing debacle?   So go ahead, Larry.  Buy Greek Bonds, Spanish Bonds, Chicago Bonds, Detroit Bonds, San Francisco Bonds, NYC Bonds.  Then stand by and watch your “investment” preserve the status quo.  Put your money where your mouth is.  Governments borrowing money limps the economy along to eventual failure.

Quit Whining and Starve the Beast!

Good News for Obama

Posted by madjillmom on April 29, 2012

1.  UK slips back into recession.  Don’t let anyone pay attention to these worldly concerns.

2.  Spain and Greece still suck and the EU won’t be able to bail them out.  Maybe this can keep under the radar until November.

3.  Houses in 16 of 20 markets continue to fall in price and your last plan to fix it, another task force, hasn’t even had a meeting yet.  No biggy, you got some mileage out of the announcement.

4.  Little inflation unless you buy gas or food.

5.  Unemployment trend is going in wrong direction again.  But this can be fixed by a few million people dropping out of the work force.  After all this is the best way to get the unemployment rate to go down, don’t you know.

6. Economy grew at 2.2 rate 1st quarter rather than the “expert” expectation of 2.6.  Of course, this is much lower than the 3% rate of growth 4th quarter rate in 2011. Kinda a favorite of your’s, slow jamming the economy.

7.  Your EPA guy spoke the truth about your policy about fossil fuel energy but only conservative bloggers and Fox watchers really care.

8.  The New York Times has decided they were a little too enamored of you the last time and that they need to do a better job vetting both you and your policies this time.  No need to panic, it’s a ruse and you know they are incapable of actually being critical of you for any real issue.

9.  VP Biden knows that once you go black, you can’t go back.  This regards the big stick you carry.

10.  The voting age youth get most of their news from Comedy Shows.  You are in the clear.

11.  Air Force One is a great way to campaign.  You should know, you have done twice the fundraisers as GWB at the same time in his term.  You love campaigning.  It is so much easier than actually governing.  Second only to golf.

12.  Cool beats Competent, doesn’t it?

Greece and Germany

Posted by madjillmom on November 1, 2011

If I was Chancellor Merkel of Germany, I would be putting in a call to the head of Greece.  During that call, I would be telling him that since he has decided to put the austerity measures that Greece agreed to to a referendum of the lazy-ass Greek public, she has decided to put the Greek bailout up to the hard-working populace of Germany.

Answer “Greece and the Obama Administration”

What is “Those unconcerned about growing national debt”, Alex.

Greek and Chrysler Bonds

Posted by madjillmom on October 28, 2011

Big news out yesterday was a basic framework of bailing out Greece.  The Greek bondholders will hopefully get 50 cents on the dollar for their investment.  Amazing in light of the fact that Obama screwed the Chrysler bond holders and they only got only 30 cents on the dollar.  Wow.  Kinda makes you wish Grandpa had invested in Greece instead of Chrysler.  Then Grannie could afford almost twice as much Alpo for dinner.

Greek Tourism

Posted by madjillmom on June 29, 2011

The Greek population seems to be in denial.  They demonstrate/riot because they still want their cushy lives on the government dole.  If I had to guess what the biggest industry was in Greece, I would guess that it is tourism.  I wonder what these scenes do for that industry?
