Ray McInerny, Sr., and his wife Jean, have lived in New Berlin for 32 years. A retired graphic artist, he now paints for his own enjoyment. This blog will attempt to present items of general interest to his New Berlin neighbors.
Twenty-five years ago we had Ronald Reagan, Johnny Cash and Bob Hope. Now we have Barack Obama, No cash and No hope.
In an effort to appeal to our envy and greed Mr.Obama loves telling how he's going to stick it to the "Rich Cats" and that will make us all so happy. Many still beiieve this hogwash.
Mr. Obama loves Hope and Change. Here's why. On December 31, 2007 Obama's net worth was $1,300,000. On December 31, 2011 Obama's net worth was $11,473.336. An increase of $10,173.336 over a 4 year period. The increase percentage was 782%. Who wouldn't love Hope and Change like that? What was your increase in net worth?
Tuesday, October 16 the Milwaukee Journal/Sentinel PolitiFact Wisconsin reported through its investigation of Romney's remarks that Obama did indeed have offshore investments in China and the Cayman Islands. His investments are through the Illinois State Senate Retirement Fund from his years in office from 1997-2004 in the Illinois Senate. Romney gets a Truth-O-Meter of Mostly True for bringing this up. Forgetfull Mr. Obama?
During this same period of Hope and Change the Obama Administration shrugged off 23 million Americans who are unemployed or underemployed. Shrugged off 47 millions of us on Food Stamps. Shrugged off $4,300 drop in household income. Shrugged $5.5 Trillion in new debt. Shrugged off $716 Billion cut from Medicare which was transferred to Obamacare. Shrugged off $1.9 Trillion in new taxes in Obama's budget. Shrugged off 100% increase in gasoline prices. Obama Shrugged and we felt it.
Friday, October 12th on radio WPGC 95.5 Mrs. Obama was asked what she though the state of the union was? Her answer "I mean, we are seeing right now that we are in the midst of a huge recovery. Right? Because of what this president has done."
Thursday, October 11th Mr. Obama said in Miami "We got back every dime we used to rescue the financail system, but we also passed a historic law to end taxpayer-funded Wall Street bailouts for good." However, the Congessional Budget Office reported as of now there is $65 Billion outstanding. Who's right? Maybe we know!
From the Heriage network's Consevative Policy News Blog "The Foundry" lists 36 companies in the Green Energy field that are going or nearing bankruptcy. Of these 36 there are 19 that have filed for bankruptcy to the tune of $3.89 Billions of dollars, and if the others file bankruptcy the additional total will be $6.32 Billions.
And then its reported by The Daily Caller that over the last 4 years Welfare has risen 32% which has a budget total of $1.03 Trillion dollars. Lots of Hope and Change here.
And this may be Obama's October Surprise. Reported by Reza Kahlili and several blogs that Mr. Obam will be sending a letter of agreement to the Iranions that will call for Iran to halt part of its nuclear program in exchange for lifting many of the U.S. sanctions. This was under the radar and is now being circulated throughout the social media stream. Whom do we trust? If this is entrely factual it will place us in a bad spot. Can we trust their leaders? Can we trust ours, after Bengazi?
Our world is far more dangerous and unstable over the past 4 years under this administration, and the future is bleak if this letter of agreement is true. When its bleating over social justice heads the poor into a worse state, diminishes the middle class, and is bent on destorying our country's culture it is time to react and send this administration packing.
How any thinking Christian, Catholic or Evangelical, Jews and people of good will who think voting for this administration will restore our country to greatness are sadly mistaken. If Obama gets another four years the Catholic Church will be destroyed, Christianity will be wiped from the scene and Jews will be driven into seclusion, or destroyed.. All indicators, lies, distortions, misrepresentations by this administration lead one only to this conclusion. Four more years of this and we can kiss our nation and culture goodbye! God only knows if we have the fotitude and ability to put in the Romney/Ryan team. Your life depends on it!
