Skip to comments.Obama and the lunatic left: President and his followers intend to end America’s greatness
Posted on 09/09/2011 1:18:25 AM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
President Obama is politically insane. This is the real meaning of his speech Thursday night in front of a joint session of Congress. Albert Einstein defined insanity as doing the same thing over and over, expecting a different result. By that definition, Mr. Obama is a lunatic leftist.
Much of his speech called for more of the same - government activism; massive spending on infrastructure, bridges and roads; extending the payroll tax cut; and more public aid to states and municipalities. In short, he seeks to perpetuate the dismal policies of Obamanomics. He is a reckless ideologue masquerading as a pragmatist.
Mr. Obamas presidency has been dominated by one seminal reality - failure. His nearly $1 trillion stimulus; record budget deficits; unprecedented levels of public spending; the government bailouts of the auto, insurance, housing and banking sectors; billions heaped on green jobs; Obamacare; Dodd-Frank to reform Wall Street, and huge outlays for food stamps and unemployment benefits - all have failed to restore the economy.
In fact, they have done the opposite. Unemployment is 9.1 percent. Growth is anemic. In August, no new net jobs - none - were created. Consumer confidence is low. Inflation is rising. The value of the dollar plummets. Burdensome regulations are strangling business. America is being buried under a mountain of debt. For the first time in history, its credit rating has been downgraded. The country is not only on the verge of national bankruptcy, but of economic collapse....

Pathological narcissism, just to begin with.
Let’see. Spend a lot to create a problem and spend a lot to pretend to fix it. Gee it’s almost like the goal is to bankrupt us.
Everything Obama is, and all of his failures were predicted by almost everyone on FR in 2008.
Why didn't those idiot independents just listen?
If they are stupid enough to trust the liberal media then they got what was coming to them. But they created this mess for all the rest of us too. I'll never forgive or forget that kind of idiocy.
You and me both!
I left the service in 72 and have never been out of work until .. Three Years Ago!
I don’t have a health problem but from what I have been told .. My age is a problem!
This new Obamacare cr@p where a person can be carried on their parents health insurance until the age of 26 has made it where companies will hire someone that age or younger so as not to incur the expense of health insurance for someone my age! (59)
excellent summation, but one that was known by many before he was elected.
Question? Why are all the socialists (i.e. Republicans) still playing pattycake with the putz?
Damn I hate asking rhetorical questions this early in the morning!!!! :)
The Obama legacy
Zer0 is the name I give to the Pied Piper of folk lore. To him it is a story of paying a debt that is due. It is the debt he perceives we owe for slavery:
“”It should come as no surprise that the next morning there was no money lying in the niche.”
“With the sun’s first rays Korneuburg experienced its own drama. Hans Mousehole, dressed in a purple-red robe and playing a golden flute, stood at the marketplace in front of the town hall. The melodious tunes that he evoked from his instrument must have sounded like music from heaven to the children, for they gathered about the mysterious musician with joyful haste. Still playing, he walked toward the Danube, where a large and handsome ship awaited him.”
“Led by the flute player, the procession boarded the ship. Its sails billowed, and it floated out to the middle of the stream.”
“This time the rat catcher did not return. To the contrary, the ship sailed further and further from the city, and neither it nor any who were aboard were ever seen there again.”
[I haven’t had a job worthy of the name since Dear Leader took office.]
I actually have two great jobs right now. Unfortunately, and I know this is a small point, neither of them pays me much if any money. And when I do ‘make’ money, people don’t pay my commissions because they are bankrupt.
So yes, it sucks pretty bad out there. Looking to add another job.
Wow. That sound's like a lawsuit against an employer just waiting to happen, and I'm not big on lawsuits. But if the shoe fits...f*ck 'em. I would think all you need to do is just hint at a discrimination lawsuit. Then again, if your disability can't allow you to fulfill the duties, well, you're probably out of luck. Still, the Disability Act was very wide reaching. Best of luck, Vet.
IMO? They should have shelled out the billions of dollars in infrastructure instead of bailing out the banks. It would have been better use of our funds.
And, let us not lose sight of the real culprits - liberals likes of Pelosi, Reid, and Franks. They’ve been in office a lot longer than any President. We need to replace them with newbies who are not willing to ‘play the same old game.’
That is what is so upsetting to the liberals about the Tea Party. We want REAL change!
BTW, hope you are doing well.
Failure? He's not doing the same thing over and over hoping for a *different* result. This is the result he is after, so it makes perfect sense that he would he would promote the same destructive policies, programs, and perversions.
Obama is the destroyer, king of the locust destroyers (swarms of govt. thugs, union thugs, chicago thugs, Holder's thugs, mooslim thugs...), change agent out of the Abyss. America (and Israel) is the choice target because Obama despises a people and nation founded upon truth, freedom, and light. Pharobama is the ruler over the house of bondage and is the prince of darkness.
America represents life and justice; Obama represents death and hell.
Unemployment is only a problem if you are 50+, Male, White, Christian.
Don’t mention that you’re disabled, just mention that you are eligible for VA health care and won’t be needing their health insurance.
Most civilian employers won’t know the difference and your disability won’t be an issue.
Good question, I still cannot figure out why anyone expected anything but disaster from Obama.
I left my last job voluntarily when I moved in with my daughter in another state. I assumed I could find another job without any problem since I had worked for 40 years. It has been over a year and I have applied for quite a few jobs. Never even gotten one call. I have never had a problem finding a job and I am 59. If Obama can force companies to hire blacks, why can’t he force them to hire older workers? I want minority protection!
I have a friend who needs to hire one worker at somewhat low pay (warehouse type work) and she told me it’s sad to see who is applying. Mostly men in their 50’s who she would have never seen looking for that type of work a few years back. She normally hired people in their early 20’s.
She’s just sorry she only has room for one.
I see more and more older workers at fast food restaurants and grocery stores. I like to think they enjoy their jobs and are only working there for something to do, but in reality - probably not.
And inflate the currency such that it steals the wealth of the population’s savings and investments,
and does so in a way that not one man in a million knows what is happening.
I know there are laws but it is very difficult to prove age discrimination. That’s why employers must be FORCED to hire older workers - just like they are with blacks! /s
Excellent summary. Although there’s no indication that Zero is of even average intelligence, anyone with enough synapses firing to maintain heartbeat and respiration could follow the cause and effect of his policies, after three years. He and his operators know exactly what they’re doing.
Obuma’s lunatic followers are preparing the bunker as we speak. I pray the dog makes it out alive this time.
Oblahblah has 14 more months to wreak havoc on the economy. Expect him to use it wisely. There is much left to destroy.
Thank you for your service, btw. :)

You forgot Veteran.
“There is a lot more to this union action than meets the eye.
The Longview port is also a coal terminal. Right now, the coal is on hold for a permit paperwork violation.
While the Longview coal terminal is on hold, SSA, the company that is protesting the grain shipments from Longview, are pushing hard for a terminal of their own in Whatcom County, in a special economic zone that will have little to no local oversight. That terminal will be a “Gateway” terminal. In case you aren't familiar with Gateways, they are part of the UN Agenda 21 Wildlands project. They are also what Patty Murray's bill, S.942 are intended to fund. You know, the multi-modal infrastructure projects that Obama keeps saying that we need? Anyway, the only real profit on coal is in the terminals and SSA wants it all.
SSA is fully owned by CARRIX, the largest cargo handling company in the world. Goldman Sachs is the majority stockholder of CARRIX. The rail company that will carry the cargo to the Gateway terminal is BNSF, Warren Buffet's company and the coal is owned by Peabody, from the Powder River Basin. It's sub-bituminous coal supposedly headed to China, except that China says that no one should count on them for any long term purchase contracts.
The pressure to build this terminal has come straight from the White House. Richard Trumka, as the former head of the United Mine Workers, wants this badly, but the project may be running into some problems.
Oh, and did I mention that the husband of the WA State Senator, Patty Murray, has been a life time employee of SSA?
There is so much more to this story than what I have written here. It has torn the Democrat party in two, the unions vs the environmentalists and has caused problems for the GOP, who were tight with the Building and Industry people and were supporting a Democrat project for the alleged jobs.
Oh, there's more. As I mentioned, the pressure for the state officials to facilitate this Gateway Terminal came straight from the White House and it is widely thought that in exchange for her co-operation, the outgoing Democrat Governor, Christine Gregoire will be offered a seat on the NLRB.
I already mentioned that WA State Senator, Patty Murray's, husband is a lifetime employee of SSA, but I forgot to mention that the other Senator, Maria Cantwell, who was a founding member of the Apollo Alliance and big supporter of the Sierra Club, worked to facilitate the approval of a receiving terminal to be built in China and operated by SSA.
....and that is really just an introduction to what has been happening on the left coast, while Obama’s EPA tried to shut down all the coal fired power plants on the East Coast. I am so glad that SSA got arrogant and stepped over the line so that the whole country could get a look at what is happening on the West Coast.”
Can anyone substantiate these claims? Seems incredible, like some sort of movie plot (starring Matt Damon, of course.)
