Social Security?

The government program (also called a Ponzi scheme) that began as a result of the great depression will fall on its own weight by 2016 according to the Congressional Budget Office. The blame game won't work because there is enough blame to go around and both political parties can be painted with the same brush. The public too, doesn't want to feel any pain - but they will and Dear Leader's plan is absurd and won't work:

* Congress doesn't want to look at the 800 lbs gorilla sitting in the corner.

* The public considers it a retirement system rather than the income supplement it was intended to be.

* The COST of fixing the problem will be staggering and it will further strain the US Economy.

* Facing reality will cause Dear Leader and the Democratic Party-controlled Congress to scrap their horribly expensive social programs.

So what will we do about it? NOTHING

Last spring, the Social Security Trustees report projected Social Security outlays will exceed revenue by 2016, but the Congressional Budge office show deficits next year of $10 billion an $9 billion in 2011. Dear Leader is focused on a multi-trillion dollar health care game and on his Cap and Trade legacy. It's unlikely that he'll put any meaningful spin on Social Security and with his track record, do we want him to? The only real solution Dear Leader floated was a vague "tax the rich" scheme (Congress and retired US Government executives would be exempt).

What do you think we should do to fix the Social Security disaster that's looming?

I'm Still Waiting

Dear Leader promised change! A change I could believe in. I didn't vote for him because I thought he was a puffing, strutting, inexperienced buffoon. And McCain wasn't much better in the spectrum of choices for president and leader of the free world.

He said he'd bridge the racial divide between black and white, but I'll I've heard from his advisors and from his entourage is the cry RACIST or TRAITOR TO THEIR RACE.

He said he wouldn't throw Israel under the bus. The ink didn't dry on the NY Times front page before he stabbed the Jews in the back. Then again as America's first Muslim president, he may have felt he had the right.
He promised that his healthcare debate would take place on CSPAN... yeah, right.

He promised that he wouldn't push any emergency legislation without a five-day period in which he would put it to the public... that went the way of the iron horse very quickly.

However, I remain positive, waiting for a change that is worthy of comment. It hasn't happened yet, but it might. I know there are nay-sayers out there who say that Dear Leader might not do ANYTHING right in four years. I'm not one of them. Dear Leader is able to reinvent himself. We've seen that (several times) and he's not afraid to dispose of anyone who makes him look bad. When you consider the coterie of misfits, communists and political parasites who surround him, throwing a few them under the bus MUST be considered a plus. Consider ACORN. He was a community organizer for ACORN, he was an attorney on the ACORN executive board, he said many times that ACORN was his cornerstone strategy for re-making America. ACORN is shown to be a racketeer influenced and corrupt organization and last Sunday on ABC he had no recollection whether or not ACORN received federal funds... sure, we believe you Dear Leader.

I'm waiting for the Gospel (good news), Dear Leader promised.

Obama's Failures Analyzed

This morning I read a very engaging, thoughtful analysis of why the Obama Administration is failing, by Andrew Price. I recommend it to you and you can read it here (CLICK HERE).

For the greater part, the world knows Dear Leader for who he is and they are making fools of us because our lack of a capable commander-in-chief has neutered the United States.
