I THOUGHT OBAMA ALREADY SAVED DETROIT
The other day I heard someone reference where the wealth exists in this country. So I decided to do a little research on the subject and it led me to the Forbes article “America’s Richest Counties.” I looked at the top ten richest U.S. counties and crossed-referenced them with their states’ Boards of Elections to see how they voted in the 2012 presidential election.
What do you know—the wealthy in this country are not Republicans. Of the 10 richest U.S. counties, 7 of them voted for Obama.
Further review also shows that 5 of those richest Obama-voting counties are suburbs of Washington, D.C.! You know what that means—our tax dollars are either directly or indirectly making people rich. And to add insult to injury, another of the richest counties that voted for Obama, Los Alamos County, New Mexico, gets its wealth from federal government spending at the Los Alamos National Laboratory.
Another point worth noting is that the 3 richest counties that voted for Romney were in states (New Jersey and Colorado) that went to Obama.
In most of the richest counties, the median annual household income is over $100,000, which means that half of the households make more than that!
Just went to a search engine to re-read & print out the M. Massie article on the Obamas, and lo and behold, the article has been hacked and the text "whited out", so that it cannot be read on-line. Interesting - so tried to re-read it here - nope, the entire article is now un-readable.
So, since I want at least part of the article to be "readable" here -- here is a re-post of the article (or the main part of it) from another website:
(you have to cursor down past the website header to get to the article).
In addition to the info in this link - as we all now know, Morsi Monster has granted himself dictator powers - at the same time as he holds out both hands for billions in American taxpayer dollars. And Mubarak is in jail for - what again?
The real truth is that rank and file Republicans - real conservatives - couldn't care less if the wealthy (making over $250,000) have to go back to pre-bush tax rates. WE DON'T CARE. McConnell & Boehner care only because 1) They are RINOS to begin with & 2) they are trying to please wealthy campaign donors - not us, the little people, who are the bulk of the Republican Party.
Benghazi, Benghazi, Benghazi - this is the only way to neutralize the liar in chief. He is hiding the truth about Benghazi (along with just about everything else affecting U.S. citizens).
An Arizona gun shop has posted a sign on its door that warns customers that if you voted for Obama "turn around and leave." The owner states that anyone who voted for Obama has proven they aren't responsible enough to own a gun.
This is where anti-Obama citizens can exact their power--they are the business owners and--in most states--they have the ability to refuse service to customers. Is it possible to precisely enforce this, no. But in this case, the message is at least as strong as the potential for action. The gun shop owner holds all of the cards here--admit you voted for Obama and he can use his power not to sell to you. Don't admit that you voted for Obama and buy something--money in the owner's pocket.
The owner also took out a full-page ad expressing his sentiment in the local newspaper.
I was examining the Lucas County 2012 Presidential election voting results--and they are amazing. Not only did Obama, who has overseen the longest streak of consecutive months of high unemployment in U.S. history, receive 64% of the total votes in the County--95 precincts had 80+% of the votes going to Obama.
It made me think of the fact that my spouse and I spent about $2,000 on contributions to Conservative candidates and worked countless hours volunteering for various campaigns. I don't feel like it was a waste of time and money--rather it was a learning experience. What I learned is that there is no reversing the opinion of someone who feels that successful people are a threat to them, and that the Democrats have perfected the art of capitalizing on that emotion.
So, why not let the liberals run the federal government and we conservatives can do what the union leaders accuse us of--making and spending lots of money. Why do we play down the fact that we are smart, ambitious, hard working, and successful? I'm done with that. We can manage circles around liberals and shouldn't be ashamed if that results in perks.
Our future will be to own, operate, and/or manage the businesses, which if we so deem, we'll hire the liberals who think that raising our taxes is the "patriotic" thing to do. They'll control the government, but we'll control any hope they have of breaking free of government oversight.
This certainly appears to be the story (or question if you will) that the mainstream media is spiking (studiously ignoring) big time.
Oh, and if you want don't want your computer screen to freeze up, don't google this question (did he watch the attack as it took place), bing it. I've been trying for 2 days, and finally got the above link to open up.
I know this was posted by another poster (below) - but didn't see a link or backup, so wondered if this was possible, and whether it could be blamed on Kasich.
Nope - THE DEMOCRATS ARE DOING THIS...
Gives me no pleasure to see people's food samps reduced. People are in real need.
What was it that guy standing in the water after Katrina in New Orleans said? Oh, yeah... "Where George Bush?"
Well.... WHERE BARACK OBAMA?
Will Phil Copeland be able to continue his work at the Local union hall? Hopefully he shows up for the Recorder's position more than he did for city council...
$1.1 BILLION of U.S. taxpayer money to BUILD A GM PLANT IN CHINA.
"GM Receives Regulatory Approval for 300,000-Unit Plant in China's Hubei Province"
"GM's passenger vehicle production joint venture in China has won approval for a new 300,000-unit, USD1.1-billion plant in Central China."
I culled the following "comment" from the Blade article "Rock1" posted under Galt's post [several items below this] about Fiat/Chrysler and Marchionne's plans for future Jeep production in China":
"Eric your not reading what the CEO wrote, He said they will not move any EXISTING production to China, but they will take the money that we the tax payers gave Chrysler for a bail-out & build a NEW plant in China & use China-Men on the production line......Now to me that's moving future production "
As a former poll worker, I never understood why utility bills were accepted as ID, anyway. Not in this day and age with so many undocumented residents, who have learned how to bleed our health care safety nets dry.
As a so-called “battleground state,” Ohio is receiving a lot of attention in the presidential race. There is one important indication that regardless of what the polls show—Obama won’t win Ohio.
The real key to Obama’s inability to carry Ohio is found in the November 2011 statewide election.
It's a shame that the "mainstream" media is obviously in bed with and covering for Obama.
I've found that, if you want to know what is REALLY going on with Obimbo's foreign policy, you should read foreign news outlets like the english version of Pravda, Le Monde, and Al Jazeera.
This story, which I have not seen or heard of from any American news outlets, is from Russia.
It has been reported that a major issue in the Chicago Public School teachers' strike is that the teachers are asking for a 16% raise. The reality is that the strike started after the Chicago teachers turned down a 16% raise!
The teachers want MORE THAN a 16% pay increase, as well as a greater emphasis on arts, music, and gym.
There is no such thing as Voter Fraud. It doesn't happen. It's a figment of your Republican imagination. Voter ID laws are only to prevent minorities from voting.
I didn't see Michelle last night--I always fold towels on Tuesdays.
Anyway, did Michelle happen to talk about...
Feeling inferior because you don't have as many Twitter followers as your friends and family? No need to despair--do like Obama and buy yourself some followers!
Who knew that buying Twitter "followers" was even an option. With a simple Google search, I found sites that would sell me followers for as little 1 cent each. Heck, for a mere $100, I could buy 10,000 followers. I'm feeling more confident already!
As reported in several publications including the New York Times, Fake Follower Check is a new software tool that can determine how many fake followers exist for a particular Twitter account. The software found that 70% of Obama's 18.8 million Twitter followers are fake! So much for the "most transparent administration in history."
