Obama rescues Iran

Remember this moment. A flailing U.S. president who has badly managed the economy and bullied through a hugely unpopular health care law, both of which inflict great pain on American workers and businesses, in a desperate attempt to change the subject, has put the United States and the world in danger. A horribly misguided and once again rushed activity has rescued a despotic, untrustworthy Iran regime, allowing it to keep nuclear capability. For decades they have stalled and lied, and now an administration so desperate to fool us once again into thinking it has done something good has given both Iran and Syria new life to propagate hate and terrorism against western democracies. We are witnessing the systematic retreat of an America that was always the world’s greatest hope for good.

Obama tops Gaga

I really wish that breaking news was displayed on the banner that runs on the bottom of the TV screen telling you to turn to a certain channel if you are interested. On my Saturday night at home, after working all week, I was enjoying a performance of Lady Gaga when it was interrupted by Barack Obama, who I really have no desire to listen to anymore, especially without a choice.

Make it $15

It looks like the minimum wage is going to $11 by 2016. That is still too far away, and it is only chump change. McDonald’s people went on strike for one day for $15 an hour, and that is more realistic. On $600 dollars a week, a family of four will not be living the high life, but it is a start. It is time for the unions to get off their butts and go all out and recruit members from all types of jobs.

Crooked numbers

Now we find out the job numbers two months before the 2012 election were manipulated to look better than they were, and many knew about it. Is every thing we are told just a lie now?
