President Obama Uncle arrested for DUI

Thursday, September 1st, 2011

When the lame stream media wants to say they are fair and balanced they decide what news you should hear about. That is why it took five days for you to hear Onyango Obama, President Obama’s 67 year old uncle, was arrested after police said he made a rolling stop through a stop sign and nearly caused a cruiser to strike his sport utility vehicle. Since this happened in our backyard it has taken over the news cycle. ICE has been trying to deport him for 20 years, he has a fake social security number, a driver’s license renewed five times and he works and pays taxes. How hard could have been to find? The best part of the story is the night of the arrest when asked for his phone call he said call the white house, funny the president was on vacation in the vineyard at the time less than 50 miles from Framingham where Onyango was being held. We also wanted to make you aware the Governor Patrick a close friend of the Obama administration fly out to Washington for a secret unrelated meeting. We try not to touch local issues but this finally went worldwide after lame stream sat on it for five days and the Patrick story is nowhere to be found either.

Logan Airport Reacts 10 years too late

Tuesday, August 30th, 2011

When you look to the government for protection you need to be careful. When there is overlap in agencies you need to be worries. When the right hand does not know what the left is doing you get 9/11. This was why the Department of Homeland Security was created. The idea is to have one clearing house for all information so the CIA, FBI, and Pentagon are all together. The 9/11 attacks originated out of Logan International this is where two fo the four plane left from and tactically it made sense. This is an International airport it has non-stops to California so the planes need 3000 miles of jet fuel. Since Manhattan is only 250 miles away it made the most sense. This does not mean Logan does not need to understand that threat moving forward even if they did not see it coming. So they have reacted ten years later to create the first airport-based Joint Terrorism Task Force in the nation. There are 27.4 million passengers per year that pass through Logan Airport so this is a move that is welcomed even if it was ten years in the making. The new Joint Terrorism Task Force allows Massport, the FBI, the TSA, and others to share information more efficiently, we are wondering if this really ever works.

President Obama bothers us

Tuesday, August 23rd, 2011

Why does this president bother us so much? We cannot take it and everyday that we think if it was a Republican we would not be upset. The truth is this President bothers us so because he is just rubbing our face in it every day. We did not like President Clinton or President Carter but everything they did was not a huge slap in the face the way President Obama has. Another perfect example is how they even go on vacation. Did you know his family left for the islands on different planes? This would not be a big deal except the first lady and kids went on a special plane from DC right to the islands. Four hours later the president left arriving on Cape Cod and connecting flight to the islands. The problem is they both left from the White House. Why did they not travel together, why could the whole family not have waited? Why when most American cannot afford a vacation does this first family create more expense for the taxpayers to pay for? This is the reason this president bothers us so much, he does not have a plan, he makes congress do his dirty work, and he spends our money like he has no regard for where it comes from. Mr. President that money is from taxes collected from those Americans that still have jobs and it would be nice if you could pitch in and cut corners yourself.

Campaign money for the senate

Friday, August 19th, 2011

There is bad news on the campaign donation fund. We thought for sure the democrats would be taking on the chin. The congress is not well liked but we thought at least the republicans would have a loyal following. The way President Obama, democrats and lame stream media talk about the rich republicans are protecting their wealth. Turns out if that is the case the money is not being given to the GOP. The numbers are in for July and it turns out that at least for that month it was even as the Senate campaigns for both parties raised $2.7 million. This did not help to the total as the Democrats still hold about a 2-to-1 advantage in cash on hand. The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee says at July end they have $9.2 million in the bank. The National Republican Senatorial Committee ended the month with $4.14 million in the bank. The number that is typical is The National Republican Senatorial Committee has raised $24.25 million in 2011 and has no debt. The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee has raised $26.2 million this year and has $1.8 million in debt, does that not say it all about whom we should elect. This money is used by the parties to support Senate races in key states.

Budget cuts for federal offices

Thursday, August 18th, 2011

We remember last year when President Obama forced the federal agencies to further cut budgets. This was a small cut of lee than two percent but you would have thought he slashed their entire budget. It has become that time again and the Obama administration sent out the first attempt as they want federal agencies to save money. The White House budget chief Jacob Lew has ordered agency heads to submit spending plans for the upcoming budget at least five percent below the current year levels. Jacob Lew wants them to propose ways to trim a total of at least ten percent of their spending. We have to applaud this as a great start to finding spending cuts and we are pretty sure they are required under the recent debt-ceiling agreement. The agreement reached did create a series of annual spending targets and would save tens of billions of dollars a year. We are not sure this will work as the American Federation of Government Employees, which represents more than 625,000 federal workers and employees of the District of Columbia in opposition they said this will equal job destruction, we would counter by is that such a bad thing. Based on the request federal agencies would need to trim will more than $1 trillion of this year’s $3.8 trillion federal budget. Lew suggests that savings can be found by eliminating unneeded programs and making agencies more efficient. This sounds great and at least the dialog is open.

President Obama has a plan

Wednesday, August 17th, 2011

Here is a great idea if you think everything is going south, plan a vacation to get away. If you think everyone thinks you are a big fail give them a nugget before you go. The last piece is to dangle a carrot for them to talk about while you are away. Did you think this was a CEO, a mayor or governor, your boss, none of the above, it is President Barack Obama. He is about to leave on ten day vacation it does not matter the economy is in the tank. So before he leaves on vacation he tells everyone when he gets back he will announce a broad package of tax cuts, construction work and help for the millions of Americans who have been unemployed for months. Why he has waited for this plan is weird because there might be no plan, or he is writing as his rest and relaxes on the islands. President Obama will unveil his economic strategy in a speech right after Labor Day. He did give us a nugget and the idea that he will want it to happen he will challenge the new super committee in Congress to go well beyond its goal of finding $1.5 trillion in deficit reduction. So the nugget he did not have after all, there is no plan and once again he will aks someone else to make one. Filed under gone fishing.

Healthcare Congress exceeded authority

Friday, August 12th, 2011

We know when it comes to Washington and courts, Washington always wins. Today was a good day as we saw a freedom protected. It is scary when the government can mandate you have to do something. President Barack Obama’s signature healthcare law suffered a setback when anUS Appeals Court for the 11th Circuit, based in Atlanta, ruled 2 to 1 that Congress exceeded its authority by requiring Americans to buy coverage, but it unanimously reversed a lower court decision that threw out the entire law. So even though it was a win it was a little hollow because we do not care about the people forced to buy healthcare we care about the people who will be allowed healthcare that cannot afford it forcing the people who do pay to pay more. We fully expect the US Supreme Court will eventually make the call. There is a pretty strong argument that without the mandate, which goes into effect in 2014, the entire law falls. It is not a leap because if you can opt out than you do not have to pay your share, for the people whom cannot pay. President Obama who has never stopped championing the individual mandate as a major accomplishment of his presidency might find it a tough sell for relection. The administration still believes this is a way to try to slow the soaring costs of healthcare while expanding coverage to the more than 30 million Americans without it. The case is moving and because this ruling conflicts with another appeals court ruling that upheld the law, the Supreme Court is expected to take it up during its term that begins in October with a ruling possible just months before the November 2012 presidential election.

President Obama needs a vacation

Wednesday, August 10th, 2011

We know this will not surprise you but, President Obama is still planning to vacation with his family this month on Martha’s Vineyard, in Massachusetts. You would think he might try to stay in Washington since we are dealing with our first in history downgrade in credit rating. Well it is summer time so everyone a little time off with thier family, even in the midst of an economic downturn. Wait for it here it comes it is going to be a working vacation. You know like the one when the oil was spilling in the gulf he could not break himself away. In all fairness we believe there is no such thing as a presidential vacation. Those being said come August 18 if you check the oval office it will say gone fishing. The president is slated to return to Washington by Aug. 28, the day he is scheduled to deliver remarks at the dedication at the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial. This is not a new location as well as he has been to Martha’s Vineyard the past two Augusts for vacations. Those of course were not times like these and his approval rating was much higher. If there is not enough do nothing democrats in Massachusetts already what can one more hurt.

President Obama never to blame

Tuesday, August 9th, 2011

When will this President ever take blame. For the life of the run to the white House and all the way since, we have heard it as President Bush at fault. When the economy goes in the tank and the Standard & Poor ruling cut our credit rating it is because of the Tea Party. When will the American Obama zombies walk up and see the emperor has no clothes. We would just like for once the guy to take a little blame we are not saying he needs to admit he killed the economy with the stimulus and that shovel ready jobs do not create work for businesses. We do not him expect to take blame for rising healthcare cost because of the healthcare plan he rammed through congress. We cannot expect all this high level meeting with economists to ever change the way the economy is going. What is really getting to us today is the way he can never even talk about it being bad. For months we heard the stock market is a key sign the recession is over, then it feel through the floor so we cannot talk about that anymore. There was once a president who said the buck stops here. He meant congress would not be allowed to just spend; this president has never stopped anything or has shown the toughness to get anything corrected.

S&P needs an IRS audit

Friday, August 5th, 2011

Standard and Poors whacks the US government, they have a lot of balls. There would not even be a Standard and Poor if it was not for the US. They downgraded the US from a triple AAA rating to a double A plus but it put the US in a negative status meaning they could drop it again. The bottom line is Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner should have been ahead of this and must fall on the sword. President Obama has now become a long shot for winning reelection because the country will never forgive him for this one. He could capture every terrorist on the planet but when all your credit cards raise their rates that hits American below the belts. Who is to blame, start at the top as there is plenty to go around. President Obama, congress, the cabinet and really S&P, ewhile everyone was afraid of Moody’s. In 1941, Poor and Standard Statistics merged to become Standard & Poor’s Corp. In 1966, the company was acquired by The McGraw-Hill Companies, and now encompasses the Financial Services division. This is a power play by the S&P top gain recognition over Moody’s and the US has become a pawn in a deadly economic game. The first move President Obama should do is call the IRS to audit everything including top executives at S&P and brings out the hammer. It is simple logic that if the US is not a triple A S&P and all other financial holding in the US are downgraded as well. President Obama must act fast and swift.
