Dollars and Cents, Dirty Hands and Obamanomics

~~By American Lassie

Here is something I needed to get off my chest today. This is the last time I refer to the background  of the heir apparent unless something comes of the Berg lawsuit.

I’m not joining the “Hallelujah Chorus”.

I’ve said before, and I’m saying again, until he produces documentation proving his eligibility I do not consider Obama the legal POTUS. Perhaps Justice David Souter will get to the bottom of his eligibility – perhaps not.  But if not, nothing he does or anything he proposes under Executive Order will be legal.  This country could be reduced to utter chaos.

So far Obama refuses to satisfy the requirements under the Constitution to hold this office.  If our Constitution is trashed this way, none of our laws or institutions mean diddly squat.  Why don’t some of those people who are bowing down to him take a minute to ask him why he doesn’t just show a legal birth certificate and put a stop to all the speculation?  It would be so simple for him to tell the truth about where he was born.  He has named two different hospitals in Hawaii but neither one has any record of his birth.  He is getting ready to occupy the most powerful position in the world  – and we have no idea who he really is.  He has spent his whole political life running for office but has never done anything once elected, except prepare to run for the next higher office.  His administration is already tainted by the crooked way the primaries were run.

He has chosen Rahm Emanuel as his chief of staff.  Emanuel comes to the position with dirty hands.  Emanuel sat on the Board of Directors of Freddie Mac during the time they were practicing questionable accounting and lending practices.  He contributed to the financial mess we are now in, and now he will be advising the president on how to clean the mess up.  This is putting the fox in the hen house to guard the chickens.  Is this change you can believe in?

Now the co-chair of Obama’s transition team** says the economic crisis will not prevent Obama from pursuing the priorities he outlined on the campaign trail.  What kind of magic do they plan to work?

My background is in accounting.  I’ve been an accountant long enough to know that what he is proposing isn’t possible without going further in debt to foreign governments or taxing the life out of the American people – or both.

I served on the Board of Directors of a United Way funded poverty agency for five years, and witnessed fellow board members try to spend more than we took in – time and time again.

I had my own tax business until a serious illness forced me to curtail my activities.  Now that I’m on my feet again, I intend to keep fighting for this country of ours with every fiber of my being.  I don’t profess to be the smartest person in the world, but I do know a little about finances and how to balance the books.  Enough to know that we are on a slippery slope to a complete melt-down.

Unemployment is up.  Retail sales are down. Our auto industry is tanking – and the hopey-dopey experts are promising champagne on a beer pocket book.

Both political parties are sick.  We can’t look to either one to straighten out this mess that Congress – yes, CONGRESS is primarily responsible for.  We have to fend for ourselves.

God help all those poor people who think the Messiah has come to deliver them from all their problems.

There won’t be enough Prozac in the world to take care of the mental depression that is on the way.

Luck to all.
