Pres. Obama's Past

I find it hilarious that the democrats want to spend so much time focusing Romney's past while at the same time doing everything to distract from the President's.

By just about every possible metric, things are much worse today than when Obama took office in 2009. Fact is, the only street things are better on is not Main St, it is Wall St. We have a running record of months with unemployment above 8%, deficits over 1 trillion dollars each and every year Obama has been in the big chair. More people on food stamps and welfare than at any other time in history. The list of bad tidings this president has brought is seemingly endless.

Can anybody point to something that is better now than when he took office? I guess you could say we are out of Iraq but that would've happened no matter who was in. Maybe you would point out his signature health care bill. I would say it is so deeply flawed that even the left doesn't like it. Maybe extending the tax cuts?? BTW, please stop calling them the Bush Tax Cuts, the moment Obama extended them, they became his. He repealed DADT, granted a good thing, but with so many problems facing the country I can't help but think that could have waited. Truly, I cannot think of anything really positive to say about Obama's presidency. Maybe you can help me out and tell me.

The simple fact is that Pres. Obama has been an abject failure unless you count making things worse as an accomplishment. I really don't think Clint Eastwood's empty chair could have done a worse job. 

Clinton was a pretty good president. He was a democrat that worked with a republican congress to get things done. Reagan was a good president for much the same reason except he worked with the democrats. Obama simply doesn't have the leadership ability of Clinton's cigar or Reagan's jelly beans!

An Open Letter to Every Congressperson, Senator, and Pres. Obama

Instead of playing politics and scare tactics with Social Security, why don't you just fix it?

Here I am just a simple blogger from East Nowhere, Pa and I have the solution that should easily win bi-partisan approval. It is so simple it is scary. 

To save the program, remove the income limitation (currently $110,100) and make every dollar earned subject to withholding and declare that anybody with a net worth exceeding $5 million cannot collect the benefit. Can anybody really and truly argue against this?

Without Spending Cuts Raising Taxes is Futile

As you can clearly see from the above graph, even if we taxed those making $1 million per year or more at a 100% rate it would only cover about 60% of Pres. Obama's projected deficit.

I'm not talking about paying down the national debt, rather just trying to cover our illustrious President's deficit. Amazing isn't it? Even if we took every penny the "rich" made in income tax, we cannot break even. Still think we don't need to cut spending in a big way??

NEPA Blogfest 2012

Gosh, it has been so long I hope I remember how to do this.

I had a wonderful time at Rooney's Pub in downtown Pittston. It was great to see so many familiar faces. I even had a chance to get a few words in with a mean old man!!

The event was a real success with a wonderful turnout. Everybody from Matt "I promise everything to everybody for free" Cartwright to Lynnette Villano was there.

I had the opportunity to spend some time with people I really like and respect. To name a few, Renita Fennick (one of my favorite people in the universe), Gort, Bob Boyer (granted, the head of the enemy party in Luzerne County but an honest, stand up man), Walter Griffith (the best county controller in recent memory), and Bill Goldsworthy. I am sure I left out a few people but I'm getting old and my memory isn't what it used to

I'm going to start writing again and I hope you'll come along for the ride. I've changed a bit, mellowed in some ways and become even more rigid in others. To all the douchenozzles that have felt like you've had a pass, beware, I am back and I will be writing about you!!

Stay Tuned

There is a rumor that I may start writing again. I may give it another shot just because of the wealth of material out there to write about.
