We've all heard the stories about how great GM is doing. The "secret" is now out that a primary reason for the rise in auto sales is that GM Financial has increased the number of subprime loans it is giving. A subprime loan is one made to someone with a FICO score under 660.

Just like the mortgage loan disaster where people who had no hope of repaying were given loans, GM Financial is doing the same thing with cars. In the 1st Quarter of 2012, 93% of its total loans went to people with FICO scores under 660.

Obama can/will address Gun Control.

"The White House hinted on Tuesday that President Barack Obama may address the politically sensitive issue of gun control more broadly in the aftermath of the recent shootings in Colorado.

Gun control is a tricky issue in the United States, especially during presidential campaigns, and the Democratic president has been cautious in expressing any support for gun-law changes that could alienate voters in key battleground states he needs to win in the November 6 election."

In light of the recent Obama ad on TV...
I know he is off key but at least it shows Patriotism:


THIS VIDEO IS PRICELESS! MSNBC's Andrea Mitchell was really trying to divert the conversation to blaming Romney for outsourcing jobs--the only problem was that she had no facts to support her claim. One can't help but to feel embarrassed for her as she stammered and stuttered as John Sununu chewed her up and spit her out!


While Obama and Kaptur were in Maumee touting how the private sector is "doing just fine," I was visiting, for the last time, a long-time local establishment that is going-out-of-business.

Colonial Cleaners on Monroe Street is closing its doors after 65 years in business due to what a posting on its door describes as the "insurmountable" cost of doing business.

White house director of African-American media--really?

I guess it's not just the private sector that--according to Obama--"is doing just fine." As is the custom with the Obama Administration, they released some potentially damaging information over a weekend.

While the Country languishes in a recession that has taken longer to recover from than any in history, the average wage increase was 8 percent for White House staff members.

It will warm your heart to know that your tax dollars are paying for 3 calligraphers making $85,000, $94,000 and $96,000 (I knew I should have listened to Sister Virginia about the importance of good handwriting)!

The Director of African-American Media (yes, you read that correctly) got an 86 percent pay increase and now makes $78,000 (obviously, he's worth every dime)! And not to slight another important voting minority group--the Director of Hispanic Media makes the same amount. I looked for the Director of European-American Media, but no luck. I guess if I were African-American or Hispanic I might be insulted that I needed a specially trained communicator.


I think I've figured out why Barack Obama can't seem to get the Country back on a solid economic track--he killed too many brain cells smoking pot in high school and college (not to mention his admitted cocaine use). Thank god he isn't George Bush or this would be a real issue.

Obama was a member of the "Choom Gang" in high school. Apparently, "Choom" is a term for smoking marijuana. He details in one of his books how big of a role smoking pot played in his high school and college years--facts that are supported by his classmates.

In his high school yearbook, he thanks the Choom Gang along with his drug dealer--I guess M-O-M took up too much space.

A simple question with what is probably an easy answer.

Are the President and his campaign team not nearly as bright as they are made out to be or are they so arrogant and out of touch that they think no one will call them on it?


ANOTHER REFERENCE: Oops--the same literary agency that published a 1991 reference to Obama as being "born in Kenya" (see below)--and recently explained that they had done this in error--published another Obama bio in 2003--once again stating Kenya as his birthplace. So what was Obama up to? Was it "sexier" to claim he wasn't born in the U.S.? Only an egotist could rationalize that the truth about him (whatever that might be) would never come out. Here's a link to an article with further information:

"Barack Obama, the first African-American president of the Harvard Law Review, was born in Kenya and raised in Indonesia and Hawaii." Another "birther" claim? Nope. This quote was taken from a booklet published in 1991 by a literary agency promoting Obama's books.

Knowing that Obama's favorite subject is himself, it would be very difficult to believe that he didn't insist on proofreading this publicity biography. As suggested in the link to an article on the next page, the uncovering of this information doesn't so much call into question Obama's place-of-birth, as much as it reinforces what we've come to know about him--he seems to manufacture his past as it suits his current needs.

A marriage (match) made in heaven...

A marriage (match) made in heaven; the Democratic National Committee and Charlotte, North Carolina.

For those who may not have been aware, even after Tuesday, the Democrats will be holding their quadrennial get together in Charlotte during the first week of September. So what made, and still makes, Charlotte such an appealing location that it was chosen over the other finalist cities of Cleveland, Minneapolis and St. Louis?

Could it have been...


You know the saying--if it walks like a duck, quacks like a duck... I guess Obama has decided he may as well stop pretending and go ahead and use a slogan for his campaign that has a historic association with Socialism. The Obama campaign announced today its slogan for 2012 is "Forward." Wikipedia states "The name Forward carries a special meaning in socialist political terminology. It has been frequently used as a name for socialist, communist and other left-wing newspapers and publications."


When Obama was a candidate in 2008 he had to occasionally pretend that he had a clue (and cared) about national and international issues. Once he became President, he could drop all that boring stuff and do what he loves to do--schmooze.

How the elites give your money away to other elites

Here is a (boring) blurb about Obama nominating someone to head the "World Bank":

Most Americans know little about the "Federal" Reserve, the World Bank, or the International Monetary Fund (IMF). The short description is that they are all a bunch of thieves.

And most Americans have no idea why our President gets to nominate the head of the World Bank (the above link explains that).

Secretary of defense spends hundreds of thousands of taxpayers' dollars to "get his mind straight"

I don't know why I continue to be surprised how a federal government--that is led by a Socialist President--is spending taxpayers' money like it's their own private "stash," but now Secretary of Defense, Leon Panetta, admits that he spends $32,000 for each roundtrip weekend visit to his home in California. Panetta flys on an Air Force plane and the 27 trips home that he's taken in his 8 months in office have cost taxpayers a total of $860,000. Panetta says these trips home are important "just to get your mind straight and your perspective straight."

Panetta says he regrets the expenditures, but "A taxpayer would have to pick up those costs with any secretary of state or secretary of defense." Geez, I feel better now.

BREAKING: David Axelrod Endorses Mitt Romney for President

Obama henchman, David Axelrod, on Fox News Sunday:

"The choice in this election is between an economy that produces a growing middle class and that gives people a chance to get ahead and their kids a chance to get ahead and an economy that continues down the road we're on."

Yep...that's about right. I really do hope they keep this up.

IRS Targets Tea Party Groups With Unprecedented Scrutiny

It seems that speech in the U.S. is only free when you are speaking in favor of the Obama administration. Liberal non-profit organizations such as Media Matters are insulated against the wrath of the power Obama has at his disposal. But such is not the case for conservative groups like the Tea Party.

Tea Party groups throughout the country applied for non-profit status under the IRS Code 501(c)(4). At least 80 of these groups have been sent what a former IRS agent describes as "unusually intrusive" questionnaires asking for unprecedented information such as volunteers' resumes and information about subscribers to Tea Party publications. The IRS is not just targeting the groups--Tea Party leaders are also being personally audited. One leader who works from home for a Southern California group has been notified that a team of IRS investigators will be sent to "inspect" his house.

Coincidence? Nope. It seems that seven Democrat senators (including Schumer and Franken) sent a letter to the IRS commissioner specifically asking for investigations into conservative groups.

Obama is a 1 percenter paying a lower tax rate than most of the 99 percenters

Barack and Michelle Obama's 2011 tax forms have been made public and they reveal some interesting items. First, they have income of almost $790,000, but their effective tax rate was slightly over 20 percent. Many of us would love to pay that rate! I suppose Obama is trying to amplify the "rich don't pay their fair share" malarkey. Wouldn't they set a great example by saying "We want to pay our 'fair share' so we are foregoing itemized deductions"? But that doesn't fit with "the rules don't apply to liberal, ivy league-educated elites."

Another interesting item involves the purchase and sale of U.S. Treasury securities.
