This task is getting really easy since Obama is simply continuing many of President GW Bush's policies:
Item #1: Hmmm, I guess that wasn't such a bad idea after all...
Item #2: I, Your Savior, Demand Trivial Spending Reductions
Item #3: Higher Math is not a Pre-requisite for Presidents
Item #4: Tax Breaks for Working Families -- PSYCHE!!!
Item #5: Yeah! I want THAT Health Care!
Item #6: Another Economic Milestone
Item #7: Diplomatic Progress
Item #8: Dad, Can I Borrow the Keys
Item #9: Pattern of Misconduct
Item#1: Umm..uhhh...well...uhhh...I guess military tribunals are okay: The Rookie's administration has finally figured out that war is not law enforcement. Those captured on the battlefield must be subjected to MILITARY TRIBUNALS -- a process decried by candidate Obama.
I guess Obama finally figured out that no one captured on a battlefield was ever read their Miranda rights, and so, cannot be tried in a civilian court. Duuhhhh.
(psst...It actually took him 15 weeks to figure this out and the Germans aren't happy about this LINK. )
Item #2: Remember when Obama told his Cabinet to cut $100M?: $100Million taken out of an assload of money, is still an assload of our money being wasted. Here, watch...
Item #3: Well, 100 Billion is sorta Like 2.1 Billion: President Obama's Magic Teleprompter™ told him during the campaign that by tracking the Evil Corporate Tax Trolls (you know, those companies who operate in a foreign country and don't want to have to pay taxes in two different countries), he could recapture $100 billion per year. These companies currently pay tax for the country in which they operate and U.S. taxes after deducting the foreign countries tax.
Today, the President outlined his Grand Tax Recapture Plan and he plans to recapture $2.1 Billion per year!
...What happened to $100 billion?!?!
...Oh yeah, that was during a campaign. Those numbers don't count anymore.
So, now these companies will have a choice. If they want to operate in foreign countries they can either:
(A) Pay taxes in two countries, including a country with the second highest corporate tax rate in the world (the U.S.), or,
(B) They can relocate their companies to the actual country in which they do business, pay less tax, and hire locals who will work for less..., or,
(C) Companies can move to a third country, such as Ireland, and set up their parent companies while paying lower taxes.
Net results if they move: U.S. ex-patriate managers will lose their jobs and the U.S. will not capture ANY taxes (as opposed to the 2.3% we capture now).
The funniest part of this story is that Obama believes companies don't pay enough tax...perhaps he should look in his cabinet if he wants to track down those vile little tax cheats.
Item #4: Gimme Back Yo' Money, Beeotches: You know that miniscule little tax rebate you see in your paycheck...well, you may have to pay it back. The new IRS tax tables may result in you getting too much back in your paychecks, meaning you will OWE MONEY TO OBAMA at the end of the year-- LINK. Yes, that's right, you will have to pay back your own money to the gummint because they are too inept to write a tax table that doesn't give you excessive rebate money. Confused? This is how gummint works folks.
Get used to it - you voted for more.
Item #5: The First Flu Fatality: Did you know that the first person to die from Swine Flu was a woman who had full government provided health care?
In fact, she went to several private clinics and was diagnosed with a variety of illnesses from April 4th until April 12th (when she died). Yes, this was in Mexico, and you're probably thinking "Mexican medical care is not close to American health care. We would have diagnosed the flu immediately."
And, of course, that's the point. While you might ethnocentrically dismiss Mexican health care, what are the odds that clinic after clinic could not diagnose this illness? Perhaps it's not that they couldn't, simply that they didn't pay enough attention. Socialized health care removes some of the market incentives for always doing well in whatever your vocation.
Welcome to Obama Care -- if you let him implement it.
Item #6: The Wonderful Wizard of Economics: In case you didn't hear, Obama has declared the economy is getting better....uh, except that the economy shrunk by 6.1% in the first three months of this year?!?!
I think the Magic Teleprompter™ told Barack to say the economy was improving. Maybe the Magic Teleprompter™ realizes that downplaying the economy wasn't working. Combined with the last three months of last year, this is the worst economy since the 1950's. Yes, Barry is carrying on in GW's footsteps.
Item #7: Following in the Savior's Footsteps: "Mahmood I'm a Dinner Jacket", the Iranian President, must have been converted by the Obama diplomatic charm.
As part of his new Presidential campaign (Iranians vote June 12th), Mahmood is using the slogan "Yes We Can" (pictured below) in an attempt to be reelected as President.
I'll bet he wins, too. No one can seemingly resist that slogan.
Item #8: Hey, Who Took My Plane?: Please read this article: LINK.
Are you finished? Okay, now can any libtards tell me that Barack Obama didn't know that Air Force One was unavailable during the time it was flying over NYC? If he didn't know where that aircraft was, he's an inept boob.
One of the most disturbing parts of this inanity is that the Obama administration THREATENED the NYC police, the FBI, the NYC Mayor, EVEN THE SECRET SERVICE if they leaked information on a memo that said they knew it would cause "public concern". And that brings us to this:
Item#9: Mussolini, Tito, Franco, Pinochet, and Obama: A high-ranking lawyer representing hedge funds (Thomas Lauria) claims the Obama administration THREATENED HIS CLIENT'S REPUTATION if they didn't do exactly as Obama told them regarding the Chrysler bankruptcy. While the White House is disputing this, we now have two instances of the same behavior in one week.
Who are you going to believe?
Street thugs and petty little men. Time to fire up the impeachment machine and keep it running in the background -- just in case.
MONTHLY UPDATE ITEMS:
YES, GITMO IS STILL OPEN and,
YES, THERE ARE STILL TROOPS IN IRAQ.
