Obama Warns of Dire Consequences Without Stimulus: Breitbart.com
While itemizing the woes of this country (largely the products of democrat meddling and power mongering), Obama tried in earnest to convince Americans that we need his socialist package…er, I mean…stimulus package.
Did I sleep through January 20th?
According to Obama, pumping up government spending will stimulate the economy and create jobs. In the modified words of Tony Stark, “It didn’t work for FDR, it didn’t work for America, and well, it hasn’t worked at all so far.” The confiscation of capital and wealth redistribution via public works programs and welfare assistance has never bolstered the economy. But who’s counting?
The president-elect cast blame on “an era of profound irresponsibility that stretched from corporate boardrooms to the halls of power in Washington.” But he added, “The very fact that this crisis is largely of our own making means that it is not beyond our ability to solve.”
Does this mean he is admitting that the Democrats are largely responsible for the “profound irresponsibility”? Yea, right.
This is another classic case of democrats creating problems and then bamboozling the American sheeple into thinking someone else is to blame and democrats are the only ones who can fix it. Think: Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.
And, how, pray tell, does Obama plan on fixing America’s current economic problem? Does the New Deal ring a bell?
Obama laid out goals of doubling the production of alternative energy over three years…
This translates into bankrupting the coal industry while more useless windmills, built by emplyees of the government’s public works program, dot the fruited plain.
...updating most federal buildings to improve energy efficiency…
This just sounds stupid. Most buildings? I guess the air conditioning repairmen will also be employees of the government’s public works program.
…making medical records electronic, expanding broadband networks and updating schools and universities.
Again, stupid, stupid, stupid. These are not issues of a presidential nature. But I guess when your agenda is to micromanage the country Stalin-style, this is par for the course.
According to Obama, “It’s a plan that represents not just new policy but a whole new approach to meeting our most urgent challenges.”
Interesting. But I’m confused. According to democrats, the country is going to hell in a Bush Basket. If that is the case, then how did energy inefficient federal buildings become one of our most urgent challenges? Could it be that we are about to have an ignoramus for a president?
Still, his remarks shed no new light on the details of his plan that could cost as much as $775 billion over two years in tax cuts and spending.
Lest anyone get excited, tax cuts in Obamaland are only for those who don’t pay taxes. In the real world, they are called Welfare Checks.
And, he said little about the unprecedented red ink and rising debt confronting the government, even after spending days reassuring the public and Congress that he is committed to tackling long-term deficits after the economy rebounds.
Key words here: After the economy rebounds.
Don’t be fooled. Obama doesn’t want the economy to rebound. And if, by some strange twist of fate, it did rebound while he holds office, he won’t admit it. You see, it is important to understand that democrats have a vested interest in keeping Americans in a state of panic over the economy. It is the means by which they further their agenda. Liberal democrats will work tirelessly to ensure that Americans believe they are always just one step away from the economy rebounding…and one ominous step away from Armageddon. And, big surprise, the country can only be saved by the socialist, government-growing plans concocted by criminally-minded democrats.
Obama gets away with this, by and large, because a frightening number of Americans don’t have sense enough to read between his lies…I mean, lines.
But on to unemployment.
According to Breitbart:
A report that came out the same day as Obama’s speech showed that the number of people drawing jobless benefits rose last week to the highest level since 1982, demonstrating the troubles the unemployed are having in finding new jobs.
So, jobless benefits rose last week to the highest level since 1982. Just some thoughts here, but didn’t Jimmy Carter leave office at the end of 1981? And don’t these reports generally come out in January? So, January of 1982 would be when the report on Carter’s joblessness came out. Now while it might seem, by this observation, that, logically, Bush would be responsible for the spike in the joblessness of 2009, that isn’t the case.
Aside from what the enviro-nuts and unions have done to industry in this country, I believe there is another reason for the sudden rise in unemployment.
During the Carter years, an unprecedented amount of people bit off on the democrat’s No Work for Pay Program. During the Bush years, however, joblessness has been relatively low. But, lo and behold, it rose last week! And why did it rise? Because a large portion of the very people who voted for Obama actually believe he’s going to put gas in their tanks and pay their house notes…all without ever having to leave the comfort of their couches! Unemployment rose last week because the unproductive in our society know a cash cow when they elect one.
It’s just a theory, but it has more credibility than, say, global warming.
More from Breitbart:
Consumers and companies are folding under the negative forces of a collapsed housing market and a global credit crunch. The recession, which started in December 2007, already is the longest in a quarter-century.
So, in lieu of letting the market correct itself (and putting Barney Frank in prison), Obama shows his stalwart faith in the American people and his utter disdain for capitalism:
Obama made broader arguments, too, saying that the private sector cannot do what is needed now.
“At this particular moment, only government can provide the short-term boost necessary to lift us from a recession this deep and severe,” he said.
And so begins four years of socialist spin. A short-term boost is not Obama’s real agenda. A long-term dependence upon the government-a democrat government- is the end goal.
It’s going to be a long four years.
