Total Public Debt Outstanding 11/22/2011 @ 2:30 PM:
The United States public debt is the money borrowed by the federal government of the United States at any one time through the issue of securities by the Treasury and other federal government agencies.
If you’re as stupid as me you’ll vote for me. I have faith in the American people. I realize they are sheeple and will follow me right off the cliff by listening to my comrades, uh, I mean the media, and believe there are NO good Republicans running against me for office.
The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (AARA) and commonly referred to as the Stimulus or The Recovery Act, is an economic stimulus package enacted by the 111th United States Congress in February 2009 and signed into law on February 17, 2009, by President Barack Obama. The approximate cost of the economic stimulus package was estimated to be $787 billion at the time of passage.
Team Obama used scare tactics in getting the Democrat-controlled Congress to give him the massive spending bill dressed up as a stimulus. They told us that without Obama’s bailout the unemployment rate would reach 9%, but if Congress passed his boondoggle, unemployment would peak at 8%. The Act included many items NOT directly related to economic recovery such as long-term spending projects (e.g., a study of the effectiveness of medical treatments) and other items specifically included by Congress (e.g., a limitation on executive compensation in federally aided banks added by Senator Dodd and Rep. Frank). As part of President Obama’s economic stimulus, the federal government has doled out $230 million for communities to combat obesity rather than create jobs or boost the economy. In many cases, the funds are being used to attack American-made products like Coke and Pepsi.
The unemployment rate scare tactic was contained in Obama’s “The Job Impact of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Plan” and was supposed to keep unemployment no higher than 8%. How did that prediction turn out? The unemployment rate has doubled since the recession began in December 2007. As of September 2011, the unemployment rate stayed at 9.1%.
8% my arse! Uh, I think it’s actually more like 21% but don’t tell anybody.
Obama administration officials are increasingly using regulation and litigation to bypass Congress, say free market advocates and social conservatives. In June, immigration officials announced this they will no longer apply immigration law against illegal immigrants who are studying, who have family relations in the U.S. military, or who are caring for ailing relatives. In August, officials announced they would drop deportation procedures against up to 300,000 illegal immigrants who are now being held, but not suspected of having committed major crimes. Those who are released will get a work permit, even though national unemployment is at least 9.1 percent.
The Obama EPA change in tone is clear from President Obama’s appointment of Lisa Jackson, former head of the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection, as EPA administrator, and Carol Browner, former EPA administrator, to the new position of special adviser to the president on climate change and energy (the so-called “climate czar”). Add to this a proposed EPA budget of $10.5 billion (the largest in the agency’s 39-year history and a 40 percent increase from 2008).
So what if you don’t have a job? I’m the power hungry, job killing leader of the EPA and it is my duty to make sure I close down every business I can whether it’s mining or farming. That’s me, Lisa Jackson, Princess of Darkness. Ha, ha, I made a pun. All you nitwit Americans will soon be living in the dark without electricity. That makes my heart jump for joy and Mr. Obama loves me for it.
In what amounts to a political street fight, the Senate Republican minority has pushed Obama hard in its rebuke of the nomination of Craig Becker. Becker, a pro-labor nominee to the NRLB, saw his nomination come to a screeching halt. Republicans, joined by conservative Democrats, defeated an effort to allow the nomination process to move forward. Now the administration is pushing back, indicating a willingness to consider a recess appointment to place Becker at the NRLB and bypass a Senate confirmation vote.
Barack Obama’s new slogan – “we can’t wait” – appears to be more than just rhetoric as the president increasingly relies on executive orders rather than risk his proposals being voted down in Congress. Mr. Obama signed a new executive order on Monday requiring the Food and Drug Administration to address a shortage in prescription medicine, the fifth such order in a week. The president used the power of his office last week to issue new orders tackling everything from student loans and house refinancing to support for research and development – and said he would launch a new initiative every week until the end of the year.
What other branches of government? What are ya talking about? I am all of them. Can’t you see that? There is no legislative branch or judicial branch. You ignorant, gun toting American people just don’t get it. I’m King now and I plan to do it all by myself. I can’t seem to get any good help these days. Besides more of me gives Softball Chrissy Matthass more thrills up his legs at night. I have to give him something for all he does for me and my administration.
Obama is bypassing Congress to enact mortgage reform. It may sound at first blush like Obama is bypassing the obstructionist Congress to issue executive orders to help homeowners. But as Huffington Post notes, in a story entitled “New Obama Foreclosure Plan Helps Banks at Taxpayers’ Expense. A key new condition in the plan would shift the financial liability for refinanced loans from Wall Street banks to the American taxpayer.” The newly expanded program would expunge legal liabilities associated with mortgages refinanced through the program for the original lenders of the mortgages. Each time a bank sent a loan to Fannie and Freddie, it certified that the loan met Fannie and Freddie’s safe lending criteria. But many loans sent to the mortgage giants did not, in fact, meet those criteria. Currently, when borrowers default on those ineligible loans, the mortgage giants can “put back” the resulting losses onto the banks that pushed the loans.
Under the modified plan, “put back” liability at banks will be erased for any underwater mortgage that is refinanced through HARP, eliminating Fannie and Freddie’s ability to sack lenders with losses in the event that the mortgage does not pan out. If borrowers go through HARP, but decide after several months that the modest monthly savings do not outweigh owing tens of thousands of dollars more than their home is worth, taxpayer-owned Fannie and Freddie will have to take the full loss. Even if the original loan was sent to Fannie and Freddie with false or fraudulent guarantees from the bank — promises that may directly be tied to the borrower’s current financial problems
Obama’s “We Can’t Wait” agenda, is a new Obamanology program designed to bypass Congress and do whatever he pleases. It worked with his non-war in Libya. Despite the restrictions imposed by the War Powers Resolution — which requires presidents “to consult with Congress before introducing U.S. armed forces into hostilities or situations where hostilities are imminent” and to withdraw from hostilities “within 60 days of the time a report is submitted unless Congress acts to approve continued military action” — Obama told Congress that dropping bombs didn’t qualify as “hostilities” so they could just go pound sand. This Would Be at Taxpayers’ Expense, of Course.
Obama’s assassination list: The American Civil Liberties Union and the Center for Constitutional Rights have brought suit against the Obama administration for ordering the targeted killing of American-born al Qaeda leader Anwar al-Awlaki, who is believed to be holed up in Yemen. These groups argue that the president doesn’t have the legal authority to order the assassination of American citizens. President Obama has exceeded his power in ordering Alwake’s assassination. Americans abroad are protected by constitutional guarantees of due process, at least when faced with U.S. government action. The implications of Mr. Obama having the legal authority to place American citizens abroad on a government hit list are too alarming to contemplate. If the precedent of unilaterally targeting Awlaki without due process stands, then anyone could go on the list.
There is SO much more I could add to this list of Obama “crap” being shoved down our throats, but I didn’t want to turn this article into a book! Obama is the most law breaking, anti-Constitution, anti-capitalism; ignore public opinion, union supporting, dictator and outright lying President this great Republic has ever had to endure! I feel very comfortable with my impression of Obama with illustrating just a FEW of the most atrocious personally motivated acts shown above. I am still not convinced that Obama has the legal standing to be president of the United States. Numerous experts in the respective fields have made statements that Obama’s birth certificate and social security card are falsified. This issue may not mean much to some of you now, but it still means a hell of a lot to me! If he was found not to be eligible to be a United States president, then every single socialistic, Marxist and communist decision he has forced down our throat would be immediately overturned and considered non-constitutional. The only we unfortunately can’t get back is the BILLION’S of our tax payer dollars that he has blown. I would gladly overlook that one thing to see all his other anti-United States and unconstitutional decisions are overturned. Obama is in league with the worst of the worst organizations and people that want to destroy our way of life (granted to us by our constitution) and turn this into a Marxist country.
Who Me? I shredded that yellowed piece of parchment written by those old white men. There was nothing in that Constitution that I like very much. Besides I didn’t like the color, it was yellow, I like black. Or black and white mixed.
Hitler was a much unknown man at one time with a very small following. But Hitler had the gift of “gab.” He could rile up the people with his speeches of change and hope and making Germany the greatest country in the world. It didn’t take Hitler very long to have total control of Germany. He took over all media outlets to only spread his message with deceitful lies. He disarmed any civilians that had weapons. He started class warfare matching his follower’s against any that would disagree and made an entire country follow his word without question due to his great speaking skills. This one time unknown man named Hitler almost won WWII and would have controlled all of Europe and Russia.
An unknown person rising to great power so quickly, this man throwing out any current laws he didn’t approve of, this man implementing his own personal agenda with great speaking skill and deceit, this man disarming citizens all citizens, this man starting “class” warfare to get rid of those who disagreed with him and this man taking control of all media outlets, so only his message could be heard. This man brainwashed millions of German people into believing his way was the righteous and only way to go.
Do you see any similarity as to what happened over 80 years ago and what is currently going on in the United States? I believe the fact’s shown above illustrates Obama’s true color….
