Off topic just a bit but, my friend Liba, in Israel, pays $11 a gallon for gas, over $140 for her last fill up (she posted about it on facebook). I don't think I could manage our budget with gas prices like that. At least she lives in an Urban area where she can ride the bus.
I don't believe there is a doubt Obama is a Marxist. One only has to look at his appointments and assocuates. Valerie Jarrett's father was a communist. He appointed Van Jones. He wants to "transform" America to a socialist country if not further. It is up to the current House to impede as much as possible. The GOP needs to come together. Us voters need to quit being "single" issue voters. We are dividing our own house.
Point is, the left has figured out the formula for boiling frogs, and it would appear they are now turning up the heat with the Marxist in Chief.He has pushed through so many EOs that we have come to expect even worse but seem powerless against it because of the ineptness of the GOP.Seriously, would anyone be surprised, or shocked if we went full blown socialists within the next 4 years?
The simple answer is, of course, no. The not-so-simple is the question of how to stop it.
That is great, but this president has made more executive orders than all other presidents who have had the ability combined. The 2014 election is just under two years away, a lot of damage can be done in that much time.Also, I have no confidence in my elected representatives, Al Franken doesn't even read the letters he gets. It is hard not to feel like things aren't starting to get beyond control, when you realize you have zero influence.
Something ain't right.In the last 4 years, so-called Big Oil has made an embarrassing amount of money - ask any Liberal they'll tell you all about it.However, it was the policies of the Obama Administration which made these profits possible. Under the previous administration, gas prices and profits were low. Under Obama, both have skyrocketed. I don't think this is a coincidence. One of the largest donors to the Obama campaign back in 08 was BP America - who just happened to be operating the Deep Horizon drilling rig which blew up and allowed Obama to unilaterally shut down drilling in the Gulf of Mexico. This time around, Obama's (indeed, the Democrats) connection to Big Oil is more cleverly masked, but with a little bit of effort, you can see it is still there. Oh, Obama talks a good game - doing away with so-called subsidies for Big Oil, but have you noticed something? That hasn't happened. Nor, is it likely to. And yet, people on both sides of the equation call Obama the "green" candidate/president. The only green I see is the payola that Obama is raking in from Big Oil to keep the price of gas UP!That's how I see it, your mileage may vary!
