Another Obama State of the Union, Let’s Count the Lies

Tonight we will have to endure another Obama State of the Union address before a joint session of congress. I had in mind to suggest a drinking game based on the Occupier in Chief’s lies and half truths but I’m afraid hospitals all over the country would be overwhelmed with cases of alcohol poisoning and liver failures. It did however give me the idea to go back and take another look at fibs in Scooter’s previous addresses to congress. I was dumbfounded as I read, to list all his whoppers would require a book, but let’s examine some of the highlights.

In his first State of the Union address in 2009 we got these doozies. Speaking about the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, the precedent President stated:

“Over the next two years, this plan will save or create 3.5 million jobs. More than 90% of these jobs will be in the private sector – jobs rebuilding our roads and bridges; constructing wind turbines and solar panels; laying broadband and expanding mass transit.”
In March of this past year, the Pravda of the Obama administration otherwise known as the New York Times had to admit that after all the spending from the ARRA, instead of saving or creating 3.5 million jobs, we lost an additional 2 million.

He then talked about the dangers of growing the deficit, this was kind of like Rosie O’Donnell extolling the virtues of charm school.

“There is, of course, another responsibility we have to our children. And that is the responsibility to ensure that we do not pass on to them a debt they cannot pay. With the deficit we inherited, the cost of the crisis we face, and the long-term challenges we must meet, it has never been more important to ensure that as our economy recovers, we do what it takes to bring this deficit down”.
This from the man who has added more debt to our children’s future serfdom than any past President.

“Yesterday, I held a fiscal summit where I pledged to cut the deficit in half by the end of my first term in office. My administration has also begun to go line by line through the federal budget in order to eliminate wasteful and ineffective programs. As you can imagine, this is a process that will take some time. But we’re starting with the biggest lines. We have already identified two trillion dollars in savings over the next decade.”

I defy anyone, to find one single item other than the military that this President has asked to be cut.

In 2010 the jug eared elocutionist really encouraged us to have a “willing suspension of disbelief” with these little myths.

“Starting in 2011, we are prepared to freeze government spending for three years. Spending related to our national security, Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security will not be affected. But all other discretionary government programs will. Like any cash-strapped family, we will work within a budget to invest in what we need and sacrifice what we don't. And if I have to enforce this discipline by veto, I will.”

Yes Virginia, he really said that. Of course he didn’t really believe it, and neither did we. But he wasn’t through yet with his proboscis growing statements. He then cut loose with this little gem on lobbyists.

“That's what I came to Washington to do. That's why -– for the first time in history –- my administration posts on our White House visitors online. That's why we've excluded lobbyists from policymaking jobs, or seats on federal boards and commissions.”

The fact is there are more unrecorded visitors to the White House these days than to a cheap New Orleans whore house. And they have a little work-around to the visitor logs anyway. They just get together at the satellite offices with the folks they don’t want us to know they are meeting with. This administration also has plenty of lobbyists on the payroll.

Last year Obama not only continued to grow the deficit, he also grew the “deficit of trust” of the American people. First he went back to his support of freezing spending.

“So tonight, I am proposing that starting this year, we freeze annual domestic spending for the next five years. Now, this would reduce the deficit by more than $400 billion over the next decade, and will bring discretionary spending to the lowest share of our economy since Dwight Eisenhower was President.”

Of course we know he has gone back and asked for debt ceiling increases twice since then. And then, he pushed another recycled lie.

“Because you deserve to know when your elected officials are meeting with lobbyists, I ask Congress to do what the White House has already done -- put that information online.”

So we face another Obama State of the Union address this week, and there will no doubt be a plethora of lies and half truths spilled forth from the teleprompter during it. But in the interest of public safety, if you must play a drinking game based on these fables, make the shots small.

National Stalker Awareness Month

    So I noticed that Skippy took time out from another round of golf in Hawaii to issue a proclamation this week.  January 2012 is now officially National Stalker Awareness Month.  I would like to personally take this opportunity to thank the jug eared Marxist in chief for bringing this issue to the forefront.  You see, I, Johnny Alamo, am a victim of stalking.
    I began to notice the stalking of my person back in the 70’s.  This stalker was prying into my personal information in a way that could only be construed as illegal.  He knows where I live, and where I work.  He demands that my boss relinquish personal information about me and even that my employer send a portion of my wages to him.  He extorts this money at gunpoint and gets away with it.
    He knows what kind of vehicle I drive, where I bought it, and what county it is in.  He has demanded that I contribute money to car companies that only employ workers that he approves of and build cars that nobody wants to buy.  He has also forced me to give money to failed financial institutions to prop them up for making bad business decisions that he has forced them to make.  And then he strong arms me to give money to people that won’t work for a living so that they can have the same or a better level of comfort in life than I have.
    He knows what weapons I purchase for protection, where I buy them from and is attempting to prevent me from buying more.  He also tells me which weapons I can buy and which ones I can’t.  At the same time he compels me to buy weapons for drug cartels in Mexico so they can kill our border agents with them.
    He knows if I have health insurance or not and can make me purchase it even if I don’t want to.  He is attempting to gain access to all my medical records as well.  He will also determine what health care procedures I can have and which ones I can’t.  And if I get too old he will determine that I am not worth many life saving procedures any longer.
    He increasingly knows my whereabouts at all times and knows where I travel to and when.  He also has sexually accosted me in airports and invaded my privacy in numerous ways when I travel.  He even has machines that will take nude photographs of me and does not allow me to see them or know what he does with them.
    This stalker even is trying to tell me what I can feed my family and myself.  He forces the food establishments that I frequent and companies that I purchase packaged food products from to limit my choices to what he deems healthy and suitable for my ingestion.
    If I buy a piece of land, he tells me what I can and can’t do with it, if I start a business he tells me what I can and can’t sell and even tells me what I can charge for it.  If I want to move my business to another state that is more friendly to the environment we operate in , he tells me I can’t.  If I hire employees he tells me how much they will make, what benefits I will provide and that I can’t fire them if I want to.
    In short, this stalker has intruded into every aspect of my life in one way or another.  In fact, I could charge him of many more crimes than stalking.  So how could any court of public opinion condemn me for protecting myself from this monster?  If I could only find a law enforcement agency or court to file a complaint with that this stalker does not already control with his money, influence and intimidation like Don Corleone.  I could tell them where to find him…………
