Colorado Theatre Shootings

Gunman Kills 15, Wounds 50 in Batman Movie Opening

Last night in Aurora Colorado at the new Batman movie opening, a gunman opened fire on a crowded theatre killing 15 people, wounding at least 50 others.

Immediately after the tragedy, President Obama released a statement expressing his sorrow and condolences to the families of all the victims.

Given that I live in the Chicago area, we have 12-20 people killed every weekend and dozens wounded in gang warfare in Obama's home town, yet Obama has yet to express sorrow or condolences to the family of a single victim of rampant gang warfare in his hometown.

Why is that? Could it be the media is protecting Obama and not talking about Chicago being the murder capital of the United States? Or the fact that murders are up 38% in a single year in Obama's home town? Why isn't the national media talking about the open warfare in Chicago's streets, and the fact that you and I would be safer on the streets of Kabul or anywhere else in the Middle East than we are on the streets of Chicago?

Better yet, will I be the only person who asks this question: Is Obama a racist?

The victims of the open warfare happening in Chicago are predominantly black.

Who were the victims in Auroa, Colorado? Predominantly white.

So why is Obama expressing sorrow over the deaths of 15 (presumably) white people in Auroa, Colorado and has yet to express a single regret for the more than 150 black people murdered in Chicago as a result of gang warfare? Many of these victims were nothing more than children playing in front of, or inside their own homes when they were murdered by gang gunfire.

Where is Obama when his own people are being murdered in black-on-black crime? Is Obama an uncaring racist? Why is the national media dead silent on this issue?

Hello? Is this thing on?

Breaking News In Chicago - Jesse Jackson Jr Attempts Suicide

Just now breaking hard on Chicago talk radio: Jesse Jackson Jr attempted suicide several weeks ago, he has not been seen or heard from since.

Jackson is currently under a House of Representatives ethics investigation for his alleged role in the Blagojevich Senate Seat scandal, in which the former Governor of IL conspired to sell Barack Obama's former Senate seat to Jackson for $1,500,000 dollars.

Jackson's marriage is also in disarray due to his extra marital affair with a white, blonde haired woman back in 2010.

As his staff has released vaguely worded statements on his health and whereabouts the last few weeks, Democrat party insiders in Illinois are stepping forward anonymously to complain about the lack of information.

More as this story develops.

Obama’s Goose Is Already Cooked

Leftist Campaign Adivsors Killed Re-Election Chances

At a campaign stop in Ohio on Friday, Obama actually said we’re still “heading in the right direction.” Is he kidding? As a stagnant GDP drops below 2 percent, employment falters, retail sales decline, and the ISM index for manufacturing drops below 50 (signaling contraction)? No objective observer can deny that the economy is headed in the wrong direction.

I don’t like playing the pessimist, but the numbers are the numbers. This is exactly what former Clinton advisers James Carville, Doug Schoen, and Stanley Greenberg have been warning Obama about. People just don’t believe the economy is getting better. So he’s gotta change his message.

But what change? Taxing rich people won’t create jobs. Neither will bashing Bain Capital. Obama is surrounded by leftist campaign advisers. And it’s hard to see them shifting gears to something constructive like making a summer deal to extend the Bush tax cuts for a year, or heaven forbid backing off the 20-some-odd tax hikes embodied in Obamacare.

In other words, Obama’s goose may already be cooked.

So, What Exactly Is Growing In This Economy?

The Top Ten Things Obama's Helped Grow:

10. Health Care Costs. Up 45% over three years.  Have you looked at your monthly premium and annual deductible yet?  Average increase is 15% per year.

9. Budget Deficits. Up 44% according to the Congressional Budget Office.  Here we see Obama has more that doubled the National Deficit and has no plans to bring it down to pre-2008 levels.  Notice the spike in 2008?  That’s thanks to the Democrat Controlled Senate which has refused to pass a budget since 2007.

8. National Debt. Up 56%  It was 9.2 TRILLION dollars when Obama took office, it’s now approaching $16 TRILLION dollars in less than 4 years.  Obama has single-handedly run up more debt than the past 42 Presidents combined.  Notice the arc of the curve dramatically increasing starting in 2008?  Once again, the Democrat Controlled Senate is responsible due to not having passed a budget since 2007.

7. Home Foreclosures. Up 33%

6. Bankruptcies. Up 27% on average over 3 years.

5. Government Pension Benefits. Up 9% on average over 3 years.

4. Poverty. Up over 30%.  Just look at the increase in food stamps which have increased from thirty million to forty nine million under Obama.

3. Unemployment Rate. Up 61% over 3 years

2. People on Welfare. Up 45%  This chart should speak for itself, however notice again the spike beginning in 2008, and the huge jump in 2010.  Democrat controlled Senate, House and White House are responsible.

1. Food Stamps. Up 63%  Notice the spike beginning in 2009?  That’s the first year of Obama’s economic policies taking effect.  Here it’s important to remember that an incoming President’s budget is set by the previous President.  In this case however, the Democrat controlled Senate has refused to pass a budget since 2007.  As a result, the Obama Administration was free to go on a wild spending spree, driving up deficits, debt, driving down employment and causing this tremendous spike in dependence on food stamps.

Now, if the Romney campaign were smart (and I’m not suggesting they are!) all they need to campaign on are these charts and this list for the next four and a half months.   

Every single American that’s paying attention to what’s happening in this country feels the impact of each item I’ve listed above.  We see that in all core economic indicators.

For the record, sources for most numbers are listed above, the rest can be easily found in less than 10 minutes for anyone willing to look and use Google.  Isn’t that in and of itself a complete damnation of our liberal lamestream media and their complicity with the Democrats in hiding these truths from the American people?

I think so.

Yes, This Is The Worst Recession In Your Lifetime

Some Facts To Refute Obama’s Claims of Economic Recovery

According to statistics available by both the Department of Labor and Social Security, the number of people filing for Social Security Disability has FAR OUTPACED "job growth" under Barack Hussein Obama.

The Obama Administration claims to have "created or saved" 2.6 million jobs in the last three and a half years. PROBLEM: 3.1 million people have filed for and received Social Security Disability.

In other words, the number of new disability enrollees has climbed 19% faster than the number of jobs created during the so called "recovery." More "Hope and Change!"


But wait!  There’s more!  For the past 41 consecutive months during the Obama Administration, unemployment has remained over 8%.  In the past 60 years, unemployment has been over 8% for a grand total of 39 months – and those weren’t consecutive!

The hits just keep on coming too.  There are 5.4 million people who’ve been out of work over 30 weeks, which is just over 1,000,000 people than before the so-called “recovery” began. 

The average length of unemployment in this country is now 21 weeks.  Since the Department of Labor began tracking this statistic more than 69 years ago, that number had never exceeded 10 weeks.

We also now have 49 million people receiving food stamps.  At the beginning of the Obama administration, it was 30 million.

Adjusting for inflation, the average annual household income has dropped 5.5% from June, 2009 to May of 2012. 


Just some facts next time Barack Hussein Obama says the American Middle Class is doing “just fine.”

Obama Supremes Health Insurance Taxes (OSHIT) Mean 50% Tax Rates

39 States Top 50% Tax Rates, Thanks To USSC

In July of 2009, I posted this article which demonstrated the impacts of the OSHIT tax on the majority of this country.  I'm re-publishing that article today not as an "I told you so" (well, I did!) moreso to frame the discussion around the impacts of OSHIT to every day American's lives.

Yesterday the Wall Street Journal's Stephen Moore published a column stating that the tax implications of OSHIT would be felt overwhelmingly by the middle-class, that is those making less than $120,000 a year for a family of four.

By re-publishing the July 2009 article which shows 39 States having a cumulative tax rate of 50% or more we not only bolster Stephen Moore's claims, we demonstrate to each and every middle-class American exactly how it is Barack Hussein Obama lied to you in 2008 when he said he wouldn't raise your taxes "one thin dime."

How's that "hope and change" working out for you, America?

75% Of Obama Health Care Taxes To Fall On Middle Class


Wall Street Journal Chief Economist Stephen Moore said today that 75% of the tax burden to implement Obama-care will be paid for by the middle class, specifically those making under $120,000 or less.

Don’t believe me?  See it here for yourself.

Obama Supremes Health Insurance Tax

What American’s Will Be Saying After Labor Day

After Thursday’s disastrous Supreme Court ruling lead by Chief Coward-Justice John Roberts, I spent a fair amount of time thinking through all the hurdles that must be overcome to overturn “ObamaCare” before it officially kicks in starting January 1st, 2014.

As I thought through what the process looked like, I found my sense of humor returning to me.  That’s important for me since my sense of humor is what keeps me grounded, stopping me from going completely berserk these past few years during the worst President in history’s reign of terror over the United States of America.

When my sense of humor finally kicked back in it was like a thunderstorm clearing out the fog around the city of my mind and that’s when things became clear.

Right now, most American’s aren’t focused on politics because they’re too busy struggling to put food on the table, clothes on their kid’s backs and keeping a roof over their heads.  Let’s face it, this economy really is a struggle and some days it’s all we can do to get through the week and keep a job.  That fact in and of itself distracts most people from the shenanigans going on in Washington DC.

The American people will wake up however, and in terms of Presidential elections, historically that’s been after Labor Day when the summer is unofficially over. 

That is when American’s across all economic and social spectrums will wake up and have a major o’ shit moment.

That moment occurs when a family of four making approximately $50,000 realizes that not only are their income taxes about to go up $3,000 due to the Bush Tax Cuts expiring, their taxes are going to skyrocket due to the Obama Supremes Health Insurance Tax.

As I calculated the impacts to my own taxes, I had that OSHIT moment myself, and it was then and there I decided that despite my misgivings about Mitt Romney I would personally do everything within my power to Remove and Replace Obama.

For me, that meant writing my first political campaign check in more than 16 years, and signing up to help the Romney campaign.  I’ve connected with the local County folks where I live and will be spending every spare moment I have until election day to work towards Romney’s election.

Now I want to be clear here about where I stand.  Romney wasn’t my first choice.  In fact, he wasn’t my second, third, or even fourth choice but this is the hand we’re dealt and I’ve decided to make the best of it.

I personally cannot live with myself if I don’t do everything within my own personal power to unseat the worst President in history and eliminate this massive fraud on the American public known as Obamacare.  I say this as someone with three pre-existing conditions that already are covered by health insurance, who’d rather put my health care choices in my and my doctor’s hands rather than some Obamacare bureaucrat who’s already decided they don’t like how I vote so off I go to the IPAB death panels! 

So there it is folks. This is the choice before us.  I’ve already decided what I must personally do.  How about you?
