President Obama is up to no good.

I never realized how corrupt this man was until I started looking at all the legislation he's signed into law. My goodness, I was taken aback at how fascist this guy was. He is making America way more worse than I could ever have imagined. We need to stop this guy in 2012. But before we do, let us take a look at his corrupt legislation he signed into law.

Signed on May 22, 2009

Credit Card Accountability, Responsibility, and Disclosure (CARD) Act of 2009

I can't believe this Nazi wants credit card companies to be accountable.

Signed on January 29, 2009

Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act

There goes the neighborhood. Now he wants women making the same as men. FASCIST!

Signed on May 20, 2009

Fraud Enforcement and Recovery Act

What kind of President wants to enforce the recovery from fraud?

Signed on June 09, 2010

Private First Class Garfield M. Langhorn Post Office Building, Riverhead, New York

I wonder if PFC Langhorn is American or Muslim. That Obama likes to give away stuff to Muslims.

Signed on September 30, 2009

To provide for the award of a gold medal on behalf of Congress to Arnold Palmer in recognition of his service to the Nation in promoting excellence and good sportsmanship in golf

Arnold Palmer! His initials are AP. Just like the Associated Press. The Associated Press is socialist!

Signed on May 14, 2010

To provide that Members of Congress shall not receive a cost of living adjustment in pay during fiscal year 2011

I wonder how many votes he got for that reach around?

Signed on January 22, 2010

To accelerate the income tax benefits for charitable cash contributions for the relief of victims of the earthquake in Haiti.

Oh my goodness! I can't take much more of this corrupt government.

Signed on July 31, 2009

A bill to provide for an additional temporary extension of programs under the Small Business Act and the Small Business Investment Act of 1958, and for other purposes

Here we go again. Helping small business owners stay afloat. Why keep bailing everyone out?

Signed on October 12, 2010

Law Enforcement Officers Safety Act Improvements Act of 2010

Why do they have to be safe?

Signed on December 22, 2010

Truth in Caller ID Act of 2009

I have a right NOT to know who calls me.

We need to get rid of this guy before he destroys America. Every bill he signed into law is nothing more than an attack on our freedom to be as ignorant as we want.

hey look...another obama shill...the only question i have for you...have any of these signed in done anything monumental to help the american people? I don't think at helping small businesses stay afloat...he's more for the corporations than small business...he just does something small for small business and then something big for big business...cuz that's how he rolls

I hate to break it to ya but with the exception of 1 president, this country has been getting destroyed since Wilson gave the federal reserve power...

I don't think taking everything a person did right helps for anything. Look at all things he did wrong, weigh them out, and see if he weighs out more or less good than other presidents.

When I was raised in a certain religion, I was taught only the facts that supported the idea of that belief system being right. Did that make those beliefs right? No, I came to different conclusions looking at all the facts.

Being biased is frowned upon, it's the same as disinfo.

Looking at all the good he did, doesn't help. Nor is it good to judge everything bad he did. Even if he was more bad or good, he could still be more less good than the average president, or less bad.

I won't say whether or not I think he's a 'good' or 'bad' one, only that I disagree with a lot he's done. I like his policy in many other aspects too though.

At best Obama has only worsened the ruin brought to our once great nation among nations by his predecessor, and theirs before them.

If you REALLY want to blame for the mess we are in, first look in a mirror, then look at your fellow citizens, because it is our combined apathy that has allowed this all to happen.

Corporate America, and Lobbyists have through our apathy been able to exploit and ultimately control our government, our presidents, the courts, the military and even our democratic process.

Whether you will admit it or not, we are ALL to blame, doing the right things alone, are as bad as doing nothing.

Wake up!

Tell that to GM and the stock market. Tell that to all the fortune 500 companies that Obama's bailout helped save their companies.

Here is your chance to be a hero. List the top 3 things that he did wrong. Something that is universally accepted as wrong. I will help you with one at least. The housing bailout was WAY wrong. Too many people in houses who shouldn't be in houses.

So that's one. Give me two more things he did wrong.

Anyways, so if I did a million things right I get no credit for that? The only credit I get is for the one thing I did wrong?

You know what i wonder? After WWII, our government, the CIA helped nazis escape..they came to america to build our rockets, others had detailed information..and worked for our governemnt. it was kept secret for many many decades. One must wonder, if somehow, nazism, socialism, spread into congress, noded af ew heads, and over time infiltrated the very core of our branches congress...afterall, a secratary of treasury telling the president of the united states, novemebr 1980 , reagan, to hurry up* s wrong! building stealth planes with an agenda for endless wars for profit* sound slike something the germans would have keened in on. makes one wonder indeed* nazis get government job, infiltrate others, so in time, break down liberty and jsutice for all. and in that, our freedoms*

A few points to make:

- The $4 trillion referred to above was not spending, but the increased amount of debt under Obama. The Federal budget is over $3 trillion a year. The increased in both deficit and debt as a percentage of the Federal budget is the largest in history under Obama.

- The largest deficit Bush ever had was a little under $500 Billion and that was in the last year of his Presidency. Mostly due to his insane bailout programs.

- Obama is running deficits of $1.7 trillion a year.

- 60% of govt spending is on entitlement programs and the US govt borrows 42% of its spending. In other words, if all the govt did was cut checks for people's things, we would still have to borrow money.

- Tax revenue under Bush went up 80%. His problem was massive spending. Not including the military, Bush doubled the size of govt. Not very conservative if you ask me. Obama has just taken Bush's spending model and put it on steroids.

- Obama blames the deficits on not taxing the wealthy enough. However, if you taxed those making $1 million + a year at 100% it wouldn't even close the deficit. So blaming it on taxes for the wealthy is dishonest. There is absolutely no way around massive spending cuts since there is not funding source to close the deficit.

- Govt statistics are highly misleading. So while the official unemployment rate has gone down, less people have jobs now than when Obama took office. This is what economists call the labor participation rate. Basically its how many people in the population are working. As people drop off of the govt unemployment programs they aren't counted as unemployed anymore. But if you just track how many total people are employed in the US, you get the real picture. And its continued to drop under Obama even with all the spending.Source

In conclusion, my points are not intended as a slam on Democrats or Liberals. Just about Obama and how ineffectual his policies have been. Additionally the points are made to show the dire nature of our nation's finances and that it is a spending problem, since no amount of tax increase on the wealthy could close the deficit. Also, this is not meant to in anyway support Bush. He was a horrifically terrible fiscal President who spoke like a conservative, then doubled the size and spending of the US govt. Bush was terrible fiscally, Obama is worse. Republicans failed the American people, and Democrats failed the American people. Neither party, nor any President deserve our unwavering support and allegiance ladies and gentlemen. Stop viewing US politics likes its a team sport and rooting for one side, defending everything they do, and bashing everything the other party did.

the hegellian dialectic aside
the bankers screwing the comex the other day by increasing the margin requirements
and driving the US dollar up a couple of points
while screwing every one who is an HONEST inverster in certain precious metals

is the perfect example of why people who argue about hegellian party politics
are just rearranging the deck chairs on the titanic

please don't get in the way of what really has to be done to save the US.
