Letter: Change we're going to regret

From an article comment posted March 14 at kdminer.com:

"Do the math, and things look bleak." It is scary, and it's coming our way fast. Well, before the article ended, it was "looking bleaker to say the least."

Let's look at bleakest. Our president's agenda is to destroy America as it was founded. He does not believe that the historical significance of America is relevant today. His plan is to impoverish America's citizens and denigrate the U.S. in the eyes of the world.

His policies as executed throughout his administration are meant to change the U.S. His latest is the use of the sequester to fabricate an absence of operational funds. His apocalyptic rhetoric about cuts, closures, layoffs, prisoner release, etc., is a fraudulent fabrication to prove his forecast. When, in fact, there are more dollars in 2013 than in 2012. Just not more, more dollars, rather less more, than the more, more dollars expected.

Washington borrows 45 cents of every dollar spent. No freeze, no cuts, just spend.

The president shuts down White House tours, and Bernanke buys paper at $85 billion per month. What am I missing!

Massive unemployment, regulations, taxes, trillion dollar deficits, 17 trillion dollar debt. Collapse. We are on our way to "bleakest."

The architect of our sorry, sad predicament is President Obama.

@ Jimi Lightfoot -

Excellent! Sounds like our ever faithless leader in the White House. Obama acts like this is his country and only his country and if anyone dares to question him he'll sequestor (verb) you. ha ha.

@ Chuckles

"Well, basically the way employment figures have been calculated hasn't changed since about 20 years ago"

If it makes you feel better to believe that- more power to you.

But the truth is that the Obama administration has changed the way the unemployment rate is calculated- by changing the definition of what it means to be unemployed.

There are millions of unemployed adults who aren't even factored in to the rate any longer because their unemployment benefits have run out. In essence, they no longer exist in Obama's statistical America.

Additionally, the number of adults being approved for disability has ballooned since Obama has been in office.

DO you think that there is some new mysterious force rendering people disabled all of a sudden? No, the 14 million people on disability are not counted in the population of adults that make up the work force.

This little ruse accomplishes 2 goals for Obama. It shrinks the potential workforce making the jobless number go down, and it creates a whole new population of people who are dependent on the government and no longer live their lives as self sufficient independent adults. Just the way Obama likes it.

“It's the fualt of the idiots who voted him back in.”

You mean the large percentage of American whod did not want to see an anti-American sleaze in the White House?

“We can't let the homo's on the hill messing with our Constitution”

How … rightie of you. Now, please provide a list of the “homos on the hill?” Thank you.

“Impeach the so called President …”

Again are you referencing the man who won – by a large percentage – over an anti-America sleaze? You do understand that the man who won is not the “so called president” – HE IS THE PRESIDENT. Deal with it.

“This is our COUNTRY, WE THE PEOPLE OF THIS GREAT COUNTRY, not the government.”

And WE THE PEOPLE vote for and elected Obama – deal with it.

Jimi, Jimi, Jimi:

Your post was SOOOO good, I am going to put a copy on my computer stand so I can read it daily.

Another thing. Could you please run for office, any office!

Andrea Tantaros, on her new talk radio show which can now be heard in Kingman interviewed Harry C. Alford, president of the National Black Chamber of Commerce.today.

Alford supported and voted for obama in 2008 - now says solely because he was black.

He not only did not support obama in 2012, he has done all he can to warn people of the real truth about obama that he doesn't believe in capitalism, wants government control of everything including our healthcare, our jobs, our culture, our guns and wants to run the richest economy on earth with no budget.

Who on earth runs a country with no budget he says. Obama is trying to take us places we have never been - and don't need to go - to European socialism. Beware he warns - obama is scary. .

Andrea tells us today also that obama is completely controlling the press in order to control news about himself - never before done by a POTUS.

Nice cut and past – but it’s all incorrect. You need to find actual sources rather than just cutting and pasting chain e-mails.

@OKR

"The way the government figures the jobless rate calculations has been changed to make it look better. And even then it is announced with much fan fare and then quietly adjusted upwards a few weeks later."

Well, basically the way employment figures have been calculated hasn't changed since about 20 years ago, so can you please tell us all how that is Obama's Fault? Or even Bush's fault? This should be interesting.

“You're liberal talking points are nothing but rhetoric.”

Actually your right wing talking points are flawed rhetoric – but that’s normal for righties – whereas my points are accurate and verifiable.

Obama won – deal with it.

If I was going to try and ruin America, I would do it financially.

To avoid outrage I would simultaneously keep the nation’s people divided on issue of politics, race and economic status, i.e. rich versus poor.

I would apologize to other countries for feeding them and I would call American exceptionalism “arrogance.”

I would bow to our enemies and give a cold shoulder to our friends.

I would try to put America on a “level playing field,” with 3rd world countries. I would make things “fair” by taxing money from the middle class and the rich that didn’t donate to me and give away free phones to poor people.

I would use words like “level playing field,” fair” and “fair share,” a lot. Although it would be up to me and my friends to determine what is “fair.”

I would take control of free enterprise like the car manufacturers and ensure my labor unions were well taken care of.

I would support any movement to collapse the founding principles and Constitution of America.

I would never let a tragedy go to waste including the murder of children as long as it would further gun control.

I would support anything to undermine the Christian religion including same sex marriage.

I would utilize the media and Hollywood to further mock and ridicule American/Christian values and promote racism and reverse discrimination.

These are some of the things I would do to ruin and collapse America.

But what do I know. I’m no community organizer.

Counterpoint:

Scott Walker in Wisconsin has destroyed the state's economy and brought it from 11th in job creation to 44th in two years.

So... austerity does what now?

“Dittos, dittos and dittos. You said it all.”

Unfortunately every word of it was wrong – but he did say it all.

Let’s see, how does that go – oh, yeah - LOL

@Anson

Your list of so called accomplishments only work if you don't look below the surface.

The illegal immigrant apprehension numbers only appear higher under Obama because they have changed what is counted as an apprehension. Apparently Obama considers people turned back at the border as apprehensions. These figures were not added in to the apprehension figures under Bush.
Also, what good does it do to apprehend people only to turn them loose right away in the US? Don't forget the illegal implementation of the dream act by Obama. Circumventing federal law via executive "actions".

The stock market is only thriving because of all fabricated money the federal reserve is dumping into it. Again, a false number.

The way the government figures the jobless rate calculations has been changed to make it look better. And even then it is announced with much fan fare and then quietly adjusted upwards a few weeks later.
All of the people who have been approved for SSI and state disability are not included in the jobless numbers. Currently, 14 million Americans are on disability. There are over 200,000 applications each month. Compared to the 150,000 jobs added each month, there is no way the employment picture is improving.

You're liberal talking points are nothing but rhetoric.

“And now for the bleeding heart Obamists to spin their fairy tales of rebuttal...”

I am not a “bleeding heart Obamist,” whatever that might be, but I will now provide a partial list of the President’s accomplishments and challenge you to explain why they are fairy tales, Thank you.

37 Months of positive job growth.

Stock market at record highs

The economy is on the mend with lowest jobless claims in four years, factory output 18% higher than at its lowest point 3 ½ years ago, oil imports lower and domestic production up in the last three years.

More illegal immigrants captured and deported (more than 450,000 last year alone) over the past 4 years than during the entire Reign of error of The Criminal.

American auto industry on verge of collapse four years ago was saved. Hundreds of thousands of jobs saved.

Osama bin Laden killed.

War in Iraq ended with all combat troops now out of the country.

Tax credits for businesses that hire returning veterans.

Health care reform—no more refusal of coverage for preexisting conditions, children can stay on parent’s insurance until 26, closed prescription donut hole for seniors.

Women receive equal pay for equal work.

Additional health care for children.

And respond please to these tings that you obviously disagree with - Enforcing fraud laws is wrong? Protecting Americans from the abuses of the credit card industry is wrong? Shutting down off-shore tax havens used by drug dealers and thieves is wrong? Providing criminal penalties for mortgage fraud is wrong? Adding additional loan programs for small businesses is wrong? Shutting off access to federal contracts by tax cheats is wrong? Cracking down on high seas piracy is wrong? Bringing about reforms in the student loan program is wrong?

“Unfortunately Obama is just getting started with the destruction of America!”

Please, I will ask against that you post exactly how Obama is attempting to destroy America? Be accurate and succinct. Thank you.

Right on the mark, Tom! Unfortunately Obama is just getting started with the destruction of America!

If the few good people of the democratic party don't wake up soon, to this fact, us good Americans may not be able to undue the damage! I'm sure glad I'm not a democrat and have to defend this tyrant in the White House! How embarrassing it must be for them!

Perhaps when we quit going to war over oil and rare earth minerals (such as found in Afghanistan), quit subsidizing oil companies and other big businesses, and cut off foreign aid to places like Pakistan and Mexico, we can afford to pay our bills. In the meantime, call your congressmen and senators and tell them we don't need any "guest workers" because unemployment is too high here. And the excuse of "Americans' won't do these jobs" is not true.

The sky is falling, the world is coming to a end crowd is always scared, terrified, and always looking for that apocalyptic event! It must be sad to stay terrified 24/7 and unable to live and find happiness in life! Any woes this nation has presently started in 2000 when them mysterious chads occurred on them ballots in Florida, and when someone when hunting for WMD but really only was hunting for oil in the nation with the 2nd greatest reserves in the world! Some folks believe anything, fear everything and me I take one day at a time and fear nothing since FDR famously said we have nothing to fear but fear itself!

“Our president's agenda is to destroy America as it was founded.”

Would you possibly be able to provide any actual proof of that assertion, other than the right wing talking points that you cut and pasted?
