It's Official: $6/Gallon Gas Comes To United States

Forget $5 Gasoline, The Sky's The Limit!

The incompetence that sits in the White House every day just infuriates me more and more.  The other day, the Incompetent, Inept Barack Hussein Obama jokingly told those who were opposed to high gas prices "turn in their SUV's" and drive something more efficient.

How about this: YOU FIRST, Mr. "President."  I've seen your motorcade in and around Chicagoland, do you really need all those Cadillac Escalade SUV's in your motorcade, especially the last one with the 50mm belt fed automatic weapon pointing out the back?

The other day gasoline hit the $6 mark in Maui, Hawaii at the Hana Pit Stop gas station.  Here's the proof:

That's right, $6.03 for 87 octane, $6.14 for 89 octane and $6.25 for 92 octane.  AAA reports that the average price for a gallon of gas in the state has reached an all-time high, at $4.55.  And we haven't even hit the "peak driving season" yet.

How's that hopey-changey bullshit working out for y'all?

It's not a Democrat Thing.
It's not a Republican Thing.
It's an AMERICAN Thing!
Defeat Obama in 2012!

80% Of Americans Rate Economy as “Bad”

Media Burying Bad News for White House

Despite the Obama take-over of the liberal lame stream media …

Oh wait, he didn’t have to take them over, they were already in the tank for him!

According to a new NY Times/CBS News Poll that’s getting very little attention, 80% of Americans believe the economy is “Bad” while only 19% rate the economy as “Good”.

Who are these 19%?  Are they complete morons?!

70% of Americans feel things in this country are seriously off on the wrong track. That is the highest number since the 79% registered in 1/11/09 when President Bush was still in office.

80% rate the national economy as bad (44% fairly/36% very). Only 19% rate it as good. 

39% think the economy is getting worse, only 23% say it is getting better. Last month those numbers were even at 26. In February they were flipped at 32% better, 22% worse.

57% disapprove of Obama’s handling of the economy. That is the highest disapproval measured by the CBS/NYT poll. His 38% approval is matched only once by a pre-Democractic election wipe out October poll.

59% disapprove of Obama’s handling of the federal budget. Also the highest CBS/NYT has ever measured that number.

Obama’s Libya approval numbers have completely flipped from 50/29 approve in March to 45/39 disapprove today.

46% disapprove of the way Obama is handling foreign policy. That is the highest number ever for Obama in a CBS/NYT poll. His 39% approval on FP is also his lowest score ever.

55% tell NYT/CBS they would rather have a smaller government providing fewer services. Only 33% want a bigger government with more services.

When asked “Do you think Barack Obama has the same priorities for the country as you have, or doesn’t he?” 53% said no and 43% said yes. When Obama was inaugurated those numbers were 65% and 28% no.

Hey Obama Voters, How’s That “Hopey Changey” working out for you?

Obama Funding Al-Qaeda Led Libyan Rebels

Taxpayer Dollars Now Being Used To Fund Terrorists That Attacked Us on 9-11-01

Barack Hussein Obama, the current occupant of the White House today gave $25,000,000 taxpayer dollars to Al-Qaeda led Libyan “Rebels” fighting to displace Muamar Gaddafi.

That Barack Hussein Obama is funding terrorists comes as no surprise.  He stated in his own book “Dreams of my Father” that when push came to shove, he’d “side with the muslims.”  That’s exactly what he’s doing.

That $25,000,000 is going to buy an awful lot of Al-Qaeda terrorists plane tickets direct to the United States from less than friendly nation states who do not have our best interests in mind.

So when the first planes start hitting American buildings on American soil in another coordinated attack, we’ll have the current occupant of the White House to blame.

Investors Declare War on Obama Economic Policies

S&P Salvo First Shot in Opening Round

Make no mistake about it, yesterday's S&P long-term outlook shift on U.S. Debit was meant to send a signal to Obama and Congress that the current fiscal trajectory is not sustainable, and needs to be dealt with in a big hurry.  There is no other explanation for yesterday's market reaction.

For those of you who may not know, the next round of U.S. Bonds to finance the current Obama Deficit goes on sale May 1st.  When these bonds DO NOT SELL look for a visceral and voracious market reaction.  Translation: It ain't gonna be pretty.

There can be no question that the intent of Obama and his minions in the White House are deliberately trying to crash our economy.  Their ultimate end goal is to seize all wealth in this country and re-distribute it according to their wishes to their own constituents.  Yes, they're buying votes with your and my money.

Back to the opening salvo yesterday: the Producers in this country are about to go on strike. Yesterday was the notice it's coming. Heed the warning and protect yourselves.

Obama Declares War on American Economy

Doubles-Down On His Leftist Ways 

"The political expression of altruism is collectivism or statism, which holds that man’s life and work belong to the state—to society, to the group, the gang, the race, the nation—and that the state may dispose of him in any way it pleases for the sake of whatever it deems to be its own tribal, collective good.’

                                                       - Ayn Rand

If you’ve never heard a Statist speak, yesterday was your day.  Obama went right after those who create wealth in this country – the “Producers” as Ayn Rand called them in her novel Atlas Shrugged, and declared open warfare on them.

In what was undoubtedly an opening salvo in the 2012 elections, Obama came off as a dictator, hell bent on forcefully taking the wealth of the Producers in this country, to re-distribute them to those he called “not as fortunate.”

This is Statism in fact and in principle, it is nothing more than mob rule.

“I thought it was a disgrace. I rarely heard a speech by a president so shallow, so hyper-partisan and so intellectually dishonest, outside the last couple of weeks of a presidential election where you are allowed to call your opponent anything short of a traitor. But, we’re a year-and-a-half away from Election Day and it was supposed to be a speech about policy. He didn’t even get to his own alternative until more than halfway through the speech. And when he did, he threw out numbers suspended in mid-air with nothing under them with all kinds of goals and guidelines and triggers that mean nothing. The speech was really about and entirely an attack on the [Rep. Paul] Ryan plan.”

                                                     - Charles Krauthammer

Obama says that the “wealthy” are the “fortunate” in America, and that the poor are the “less fortunate.”

As a country that values fairness, wealthier individuals have traditionally born a greater share of this burden than the middle class or those less fortunate. This is not because we begrudge those who’ve done well – we rightly celebrate their success. Rather, it is a basic reflection of our belief that those who have benefitted most from our way of life can afford to give a bit more back.

Bovine excrement.  Obama absolutely begrudges those who he perceives as “wealthy” because somehow, in his mind, they became wealthy by “oppressing the poor.”  Obama’s view of America at large is that of an Empire, subjecting other poor countries to it’s will via colonialism.  This view perfectly matches Obama’s own view of “rich vs. poor.”

I say that at a time when the tax burden on the wealthy is at its lowest level in half a century, the most fortunate among us can afford to pay a little more. I don’t need another tax cut. Warren Buffett doesn’t need another tax cut. Not if we have to pay for it by making seniors pay more for Medicare. Or by cutting kids from Head Start. Or by taking away college scholarships that I wouldn’t be here without. That some of you wouldn’t be here without. And I believe that most wealthy Americans would agree with me. They want to give back to the country that’s done so much for them. Washington just hasn’t asked them to.

Let’s make no mistake here as we approach Tax Day in America.  Obama isn’t going to “ask” anyone to pay more.  Obama is going to seize what he believes is “fair” from those he calls “fortunate” to redistribute to those he believes are “less fortunate.”

As I myself just completed my taxes, fully 45% of what I earn has gone to the Federal, State and County governments in the form of Federal Payroll Taxes (Income, Medicare/Medicaid, Social Security) State Income Taxes, and Property Taxes.

Folks, I’m not rich, I don’t make $250k per year, far from it.

Forty five cents of every dollar I make goes to some form of tax before I see a single dollar in my paycheck.  Afterwards, I’m “fortunate” enough to pay additional taxes anytime I purchase something in the form of Sales Taxes.  With gasoline over $4/gallon where I live, I also pay Federal, State, Municipal and Sales taxes on every gallon of gasoline I purchase.  Sum total of all those taxes: 82 cents per gallon.

Tell me again Mr. Obama that the “wealthiest” in America need to pay more?

The fact is, the top 10% of all wage earners in this country already pay more than 65% of all taxes according to the Internal Revenue Service. 

Where’s the tax fairness in that?

The top 20% of all wage earners in this country already pay 80% of all taxes, again according to the Internal Revenue Service.

Where’s the tax fairness in that?

The “unfortunate” in this country pay less than 3% of all taxes in this country, yet consume most of the services County, State and Federal Government agencies have to offer in the form of free health care, income subsidies, food stamps, housing assistance, heating assistance and other goodies too numerous to list.

Exactly where is the tax fairness in that, Mr. Obama?!

Statism by any other name is still Statism, and Obama is a world-class Statist.

2012 cannot possibly come fast enough for me, I just hope John Galt is running.
