I strongly recommend for all to view this video. It is getting national viewership on YouTube with over ten million views to date. The entire population (300 million) should watch it over and over until it believes the message. Fortunately, some of us only need to see it once to recognize the wisdom and value of the message.
I don’t need to repeat all the quotes from Obama’s speeches on how he was going to change the process. I’m sure you have seen it on the news too many times already.
For those of you who really believed in his message, “can you hear me now?” The real problem is that the brand of snake oil he fed you was too slippery to notice. Now, you are stuck with a dollar that might be enough to buy a pack of gum. Of course your company will give you a raise to compensate for the loss of value in the dollar. Then, you will be making over $250,000.00. Do you realize what that means? You’ll be subjected to the stupid taxes being imposed at a rate faster than a Ferrari on its way to 60 mph.
Bottom line, “hope and change you can believe in” equals paying for all the free stuff you bought with your freedoms.
You will pay more taxes to pay for all the so-called free health care,
Your dollar will buy less because of all the spending he’s done on “free stuff”
You will have fewer decisions to make because some high paid government clerk will be making them for you.
Have a really nice time shoveling the global warming falling on us today.

WOW! Our country is two hundred and thirty two years old today. WIll we make it to two hundred and thirty three? Will this country, which was built by people who sought religious freedom, and freedom from the oppression of fuedal systems last another year? I often wonder if we will, but that is negative thinking. It is pessimistic, and I hate pessimism even though I am the master of it. Our country will survive. We will even survive the upcoming election. I figure we can last four years of the next president no matter how uncapable he might be. We, the general population will pay for his incompetancy with a devalued dollar, super high gasoline prices, and a lack of jobs. Most likely he will lead us into a “depression.”
I was born at the end of the last depression, and I remember the effects it had on my parents. They did everything they could to conserve and preserve what they had in order to survive another depression. Mom saved everything, Dad worked two jobs, and collected scrap. He sold the spare wheels off his car. If something wasn’t necessary, they lived without.
I’m not sure I could live up to that kind of lifestyle. I am positive that, 98% of the population of the U.S.A. would not. The only ones who could are the illegal aliens who came here with the shirts on their backs. The rest of us would take to starving, or stealing to survive.
Conservation is what it will take to get ready for a “depression.” A mindset that focuses on those things that are necessary to survive. Grow food, sew clothes, repair shoes, preserve food, and walk or ride a bike to get places.
If the next president begins to tax us as I suspect he will, business is going to take a dive. More business will leave the country to avoid taxation. That means our jobs leave too. Of course we could leave to live in Mexico, or China, or Zimbabwe, or wherever the hell the jobs go. Or, we will rise up and challenge the government to provide more, by taxing the rich. Impeach the man who suggests that the American people should be industrious and work for themselves. Perish the htought.
It’ll be a fun time, I’m sure. In the meantime, I’m looking for every volume of Foxfire I can find. I want to learn the ways of survival from the mountain people of Appalachia. If the rest of you are wise, you will do the same, or you might just pick a president who believes in a system of incentives that motivate business and businessmen.
