Long time coming

Yeah, it's been a long time since my last post. I have been INCREDIBLY busy--remodeling, new semester starting, teaching a class of college freshmen, no work-study students to help me out with my 4 computer labs, new building on campus...and the list goes on. So, I'll take a few minutes to jot something down and throw it up against the wall and see if it sticks.

Mr. Obama. Wow. What can a guy say? Let me see if I can come up with a few one-word descriptions....idiot, anti-Christ (ok, 2 words), Socialist, uninformed, un-American (or anti-American)...and that's just 30 seconds worth of thinking. Give me a couple more words or a couple more minutes and I'll come up with more. This guy has NO concept of what the hell he's doing, yet there are still lemmings in his ever-shrinking popularity pool who still choose to follow him and his dumbass ideas right off the cliff. Given two full terms--and assuming someone doesn't off him--this country would be a full-fledged Socialist union. And yes, there would still be idiots that felt as though this was the "right" way.

Well, no way, Mr. Obama...Osama...whatever you are. I'll go out on a limb and call it like I see it while I still have my First Amendment rights. You area complete and total idiot. Your ideas were tired before you attempted to ram them down our throats and railroad them through the House, Congress and anyone else, and you have no plan for escaping this cesspool of an economy that you claim you inherited from GWB. Want comparisons? OK, here are just a few:

  • If George W. Bush had been the first President to need a teleprompter installed to be able to get through a press conference, would you have laughed and said this is more proof of how he inept he is on his own and is really controlled by smarter men behind the scenes?
  • If George W. Bush had spent hundreds of thousands of dollars to take Laura Bush to a play in NYC, would you have approved?
  • If George W. Bush had reduced your retirement plan's holdings of GM stock by 90% and given the unions a majority stake in GM, would you have approved?
  • If George W. Bush had made a joke at the expense of the Special Olympics, would you have approved?
  • If George W. Bush had given Gordon Brown a set of inexpensive and incorrectly formatted DVDs, when Gordon Brown had given him a thoughtful and historically significant gift, would you have approved?
  • If George W. Bush had given the Queen of England an iPod containing videos of his speeches, would you have thought this embarrassingly narcissistic and tacky?
  • If George W. Bush had bowed to the King of Saudi Arabia, would you have approved?
  • If George W. Bush had visited Austria and made reference to the non-existent "Austrian language," would you have brushed it off as a minor slip?
  • If George W. Bush had filled his cabinet and circle of advisers with people who cannot seem to keep current on their income taxes, would you have approved?
  • If George W. Bush had been so Spanish illiterate as to refer to "Cinco de Cuatro" in front of the Mexican ambassador when it was the fourth of May (Cuatro de Mayo), and continued to flub it when he tried again, would you have winced in embarrassment?
  • If George W. Bush had misspelled the word advice would you have hammered him for it for years like Dan Quayle and potatoe as proof of what a dunce he is?
  • If George W. Bush had burned 9,000 gallons of jet fuel to go plant a single tree on Earth Day, would you have concluded he's a hypocrite?
  • If George W. Bush's administration had okayed Air Force One flying low over millions of people followed by a jet fighter in downtown Manhattan causing widespread panic, would you have wondered whether they actually get what happened on 9-11?
  • If George W. Bush had failed to send relief aid to flood victims throughout the Midwest with more people killed or made homeless than in New Orleans , would you want it made into a major ongoing political issue with claims of racism and incompetence?
  • If George W. Bush had ordered the firing of the CEO of a major corporation, even though he had no constitutional authority to do so, would you have approved?
  • If George W. Bush had proposed to double the national debt, which had taken more than two centuries to accumulate, in one year, would you have approved?
  • If George W. Bush had then proposed to double the debt again within 10 years, would you have approved?
So, tell me again, what is it about Obama that makes him so brilliant and impressive? Can't think of anything? Don't worry. He's done all this in 5 months -- so you'll have three years and seven months to come up with an answer.

And, for those of you who thought "Cash for Clunkers" was a great idea, here's what you didn't count on--the truth.

  • A vehicle at 15 mpg and 12,000 miles per year uses 800 gallons a year of gasoline.
  • A vehicle at 25 mpg and 12,000 miles per year uses 480 gallons a year.
  • So, the average clunker transaction will reduce US gasoline consumption by 320 gallons per year.
  • They claim 700,000 vehicles sold – so that's 224 million gallons / year.
  • That equates to a bit over 5 million barrels of oil. 5 million barrels of oil is about ¼ of one day's US consumption.
  • And, 5 million barrels of oil costs about $350 million dollars at $75/bbl.
  • So, we all contributed to spending $3 billion to save $350 million.
How good a deal was that?

So, my closing comment is simple. He's YOUR President. I didn't elect this fool, nor do I support any of his actions. He's a boil on the ass of the world's political leadership, and he should be lanced before any more TAXPAYER money is mismanaged.

Until next time (if the Constitution holds)...
