10 Political and Economic Imponderables that Should Drive You Crazy

1. Only in America could politicians talk about the greed of the rich at a $40,000-a-plate campaign fund raising event.

2. Only in America could people claim that the government still discriminates against black Americans when we have a black President, a black Attorney General, and a federal workforce that is roughly 18% black when the black population is only 12%.

3. Only in America could we have had the two people most responsible for our tax code — Timothy Geithner, the head of the Treasury Department and Charles Rangel who once ran the Ways and Means Committee — turn out to be tax cheats who are in favor of higher taxes.

4. Only in America can we have terrorists kill people in the name of Allah and have the media primarily react by fretting that Muslims might be harmed by the backlash.

5. Only in America would we make people who want to legally become American citizens wait for years in their home countries and pay tens of thousands of dollars for the privilege while we discuss letting anyone who sneaks into the country illegally just become American citizens.

Told you earlier this man is in the 1%….

(USA Today) — Three things are apparent from President Obama’s annual financial disclosure statement, released today:

He is a wealthy man, with assets of as much as $10 million.

He has a hefty stake in JP Morgan Chase, the megabank that just made a bad $2 billion bet. Obama has an account worth between $500,000 and $1 million.

Despite the nation’s $15.6 trillion debt, he is a believer in government paper. More than half his assets are in Treasury bills and notes.

The disclosure statement lists assets and liabilities in dollar ranges, so pinpointing the president’s net worth is difficult. His assets appear to tally between $2.6 million and $9.9 million. He holds a mortgage on his Chicago home of $500,000 to $1 million.

As was clear from Obama’s income tax filing, much of his income continues to roll in from book royalties. The disclosure form lists $100,000 to $1 million in royalties from Dreams from My Father, $100,000 to $1 million from Of Thee I Sing: A Letter to My Daughters, and $50,000 to $100,000 from The Audacity of Hope.

Vice President Biden, on the other hand, isn’t all that wealthy. His financial disclosure statement includes less than $1 million in assets — and as much as $1.5 million in liabilities, including between $500,000 and $1 million on his Wilmington home.

It’s a wonder kids still go to school when the food nazis from the democrats are about.

(Fox News) — A Democratic congressman is trying to give the federal government the power to regulate pizza in public school lunches, following a failed attempt last year.

The legislation proposed by Rep. Jared Polis, D-Colo., would end pizza being counted as a vegetable in school lunches and allow the government to set nutritional standards.

Polis said Congress and fast-food lobbyists were able to nix a similar Agriculture Department plan last year. Frozen-pizza manufacturers are still able to have their product counted as a vegetable based on its tomato paste content.

The congressman said he’s got nothing against pizza in school lunches, but it shouldn’t be considered a vegetable because it includes sugar, salt and other ingredients that carry a high amount of fats and carbohydrates while childhood obesity and Type II diabetes remain a major concern.

Well, here is the union be thuggish, as usual! If one homeowner shot a union member doing this, bet then the union would quit.

Politico:

Things are heating up in Wisconsin, as campaign signs for Gov. Scott Walker reportedly have been burned in two towns.

At least eight signs for the Republican governor, who faces a recall election on June 8 against Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett, were set on fire in Fox Point and Oak Creek, according to WTMJ-TV and WTMJ-AM.

“I feel angry,” Oak Creek resident Gerry Willie, whose “Stand with Walker” sign was destroyed, told Newsradio 620. “I feel it’s just another indication of the bullying going on in this state for a year.”

Jamie Schumaker, of Fox Point, said his Walker sign was reduced to ashes the day after he put it up.

“You’d like to disagree agreeably and not have to resort to something like this,” Schumaker told TMJ4.

The Fox Point Police Dept. says it will send out extra patrols. There have been no arrests.

Willie, who plans to put up new signs, has an idea to prevent future vandalism.

”We’re probably going to coat them with liquid pepper,” he said, “so if they want to pick them up, they’ll have a little trouble getting it off their hands.”

CAIR Officials Demonize America On Iranian State TV, Compare Treatment of Muslims In America To That of Jews Under Nazi Rule…
Via IPT:

Two officials representing the Council on American-Islamic Relations’ New York chapter (CAIR-NY) turned to an Iranian television station this week in order to propagate the dangerous and oft-repeated narrative that the U.S. is at war with Islam and hostile to Muslims.

The narrative—said to be one of the most potent tools in recruiting Muslims to violent jihad—was first put forth by CAIR-NY head Zead Ramadan in an interview Monday with Iranian state-controlled Press TV. During the discussion, Ramadan compared the situation of Muslims in America to that of Jews under Nazi rule.

“In Nazi Germany, they targeted the minority, the Jewish minority,” Ramadan told Press TV by phone. “I don’t think we will ever get there, but I don’t think we should allow the road to continue to be built towards that direction because the comments that are being made against Muslims are very eerily echoing the comments that were being made against Jews by Nazis.”

“[W]henever you think that America, the land of the free, is going to grow up and go beyond it [racism], more intolerant, extremist voices come out,” Ramadan lamented. “And the easiest target, the minority, the easiest target has been the Muslim people.

Hey, didn’t Obama say back when that we could keep our present insurance plans if we liked them?

Washington Examiner:

The Franciscan University of Steubenville, a small but well-known Catholic college in eastern Ohio, has its own answer to Obamacare. It is cancelling its student health insurance policy in order to avoid complications from the Obama administration’s mandate to cover contraception, sterilizations, and abortifacient drugs.

The school notes on its website that even if it had kept its insurance policy available to students, Obamacare’s other requirements would have caused students’ premiums to double. The school will continue to provide cheap basic medical care for students at the low cost of $5 per visit, but they are on their own for more expensive treatments.

My opinion, and we all know that opinions are like assholes, everyone has one and they all stink, is this for Mitt Romney:

Do not debate Obama or answer Obama on anything but the economy, obamacare,  jobs, taxes!

Let Obama push his stance on gay marriage (we all know where that is going).

So damn simple Mitt!
