The President of the United States Conducting A Personal Attack On ONE American Industry From the Rose Garden of the White House Is An Astonishing Sight….But Especially Astonishing After That President Was Whispering Sweet Nothings Into the Ear of the Russian President Who Will “Convey” Obama’s Comment to the Thug in Moscow AND After the EPA Expanded Its Direct Attack on the American Economy and American People – Question: Why Is the President of the United States of America Attacking An American Industry That Pays Hundreds of Billions of Dollars in Taxes and Employs Hundreds of Thousands of Americans….While He Is At the Same Time Cutting Deals With Thugs? – Damn Good Question

Whether one agrees with President Obama or not that oil companies AND dozens of other large special interest groups that spend Millions of Dollars lobbying to get Billions of Dollars in tax breaks from OUR Sorry Ass “Elected Leaders” in Washington DC that will sell-out the American People for a few Bucks, dinner and a few drinks….

Obama:  Oil companies “hitting the American people twice”, Politico.com

(and we do believe that the U.S. Tax Code is an embarrassment to the American Republic and that ALL of these subsidies, tax breaks and other Bullshit that OUR Sorry Ass “Elected Leaders” have put into the Asinine U.S. Tax Code should be thrown out)

….it is still rather astonishing that only a day after returning from an overseas trip where President Obama was whispering into the ear of the Russian President about waiting until after the Fall election when he is free of the constraints of having to answer to the American People and that then he will be able to cut a deal with incoming President Putin who only a Complete Moron would trust with 5 cents….see Mad As Hell And… blog post on that issue…

After Seeing President Obama’s Comments to Russian President Medevdev About the Russians Giving Obama “Space” Until After the Fall Election on the Issue of AMERICA’S Plans for A Missile Defense Shield For Our Allies In Europe We Cannot Help But Wonder If Obama and His Foreign Policy Advisors Really Are So Naïve That They Would Trust Vladimir Putin To Watch Their Dogs…..Because We Wouldn’t – The No. 1 Thing for A U.S. President Is To Protect the American People and Sharing Highly Classified Secrets of the American Republic With Russia Only Puts the American People in Danger….And One Can Only Wonder Where Else In the World Those American Secrets Will End Up…While Garnering NO Leverage for the United States of America Against the Rogue Nations of the World That Are Pursuing Nuclear Weapons at An Increasing Pace

….and only a day after the Environmental Protection Agency took a hammer to the coal industry which produces 45 PERCENT of America’s electricity……

…..as the Wacko Environmental Nuts at the EPA continue their Direct Attack on the American Economy and American People because like most Wacko Environmental Nuts (like the US Secretary of Energy Steven Chu who DOESN’T EVEN OWN A CAR!) they believe they are saving the world from “global warming”…..NO…check that…the Wacko Environmental Nuts now call it “climate change” because of course “global warming” is not happening…(see the latest TRUTH about global temps at Roy Spencer’s website that actually has facts on it about REAL global temperatures and is not based upon Bullshit models.  Yes, please note in the below chart that as CO2 has continued to go up since 1979 temperatures on Planet Earth are…..THE SAME!)….

….because of increased CO2 and the Bogus models that “global warming” and now “climate change” were based upon are nothing less than Complete Bullshit dreamed up by academics to garner Billions of Dollars of the American People’s Tax Money because if you say the world is coming to an end there are always Very Stupid People around that will toss taxpayer money into the toilet to “save the world”….(see Solyndra which was the Obama Administration pissing $500 Million Plus Dollars of the American People’s money into the ocean and then not giving a Damn that they pissed away $500 Million Dollars Plus of the American People’s hard-earned money) and three articles that we would recommend to ALL Americans that can add 2 + 2 which would be mean anyone that is smart enough to know that putting money into Solyndra whether it is their own money or the taxpayers money was a Very Stupid Idea that want to understand the Direct Attack on the American People by EPA and the Global Warming/Climate Change/Or whatever they call it next are:

The EPA Wrecking Ball, Alan Caruba, Watts Up With That?

New EPA Rule will block all new coal-electric generation, Watts Up With That?

Global Warming Models Are Wrong Again, William Harper, Wall Street Journal

….which brings us to the President of the United States of America walking out into the Rose Garden of the White House to conduct a Direct Attack on ONE industry of AMERICAN companies, the oil industry, which is a very astonishing thing in itself that President Obama believes it is OK to cut deals with thugs like Vladimir Putin, to have his EPA conducting a Direct Attack on the American Economy and the American People and even the President of the United States of America conducting a personal attack on American oil companies.

Yes, astonishing, and incredibly WRONG when one considers that the oil industry in America pays Hundreds of Billions of Dollars of taxes to Federal, State and Local governments and employs Hundreds of Thousands of American Citizens and yet standing in the Rose Garden on Thursday was the President of the United States conducting a personal attack on American businesses because of $4 Billion Dollars in tax breaks that the oil companies get which is made up mostly of depreciation that those oil companies create when they invest Hundreds of Billions of Dollars to search for and find more oil which is the Very Same Damn depreciation that companies like Apple take only Apple doesn’t employ Hundreds of Thousands of Americans in AMERICA (although they do employ millions of people in China at what we consider slave labor wages) which again is…astonishing.

Question: Why is the President of the United States standing in the Rose Garden of the White House conducting a personal attack on ONE industry in America over $4 Billion Dollars in tax breaks when the U.S. Government is now running $1 Trillion Dollar annual deficits and has been running $1 Trillion Dollar annual deficits EVERY YEAR of the Obama Presidency?

Well, the obvious answer to the above question is that like most politicians President Obama’s political advisors look at and take polls of the America People’s opinions all the time on issues of the day and they rightly see that the American People are pissed off about the high price of oil and thus the high price of gasoline at the pump and those very same Americans wonder why the price of gasoline is so high when the U.S. economy is still mired in slump and why in the Hell the price of gasoline has jumped so much since President Obama was sworn in as President:

Yes, the above gas price chart for the last three years must scare the Hell out of the Obama campaign folks in Chicago because the cost of gasoline has gone straight up during the Obama Presidency which interestingly enough matches the HUGE RISE in Annual Federal Deficits which have also gone straight up meaning $1 Plus Trillion Dollars Annually for the last three years (from usgovernmentspending.com):

Was President Obama’s…and his campaign team in Chicago….goal to on Thursday when he stood in the Rose Garden of the White House to demonize American oil companies which pay Hundreds of Billions of Dollars in taxes and employ Hundreds of Thousands of American Citizens over a $4 Billion Dollar tax break that is NO different from the tax breaks that millions of other American businesses take each and every year?

Yes….to demonize the American oil industry must be the goal of President Obama and his campaign team because we of course know that the Obama Administration has been conducting a Direct and All-Out Attack on American Energy since early 2009 and it is our opinion that if the EPA could find out a way to destroy American oil, natural gas, coal and any other company that turns a Buck from finding, drilling for, refining and selling the Natural Resources that are on Planet Earth the EPA would do it in a nanosecond and not give two rips about the Hundred Million Plus Americans and their children that would suffer because of their actions.

That is the sad reality about America in 2012 where we have the President of the United States conducting a personal and Direct Attack on ONE American industry from the Rose Garden of the White House….BUT…why is President Obama doing that when a man that was educated at Columbia and Harvard would have to know that conducting a Direct Attack on the American oil industry would only drive up oil prices even higher if their $4 Billion Dollars in tax breaks were taken away?

Yes, why is the question and like most things that are basic it takes a woman…rather one of our wives in this case…to crystallize just what the Hell is going on and that wife of one of us (who voted for Obama in 2008) said at dinner last night….

“Obama is now kissing the ass of Vladimir Putin and attacking American companies. How does it possibly make sense for any President of the United States to do that?”

Damn good question and that is a question that has no logical answer unless of course Barack Obama trusts Vladimir Putin more than he trusts American companies that are paying Hundreds of Billions of Dollars in taxes and is right now Employing Hundreds of Thousands of Americans right now in the United States of America.

The Wall Street Journal’s Peggy Noonan is right about Obama in her latest….

Not-So-Smooth Operator, Wall Street Journal

“Something’s happening to President Obama’s relationship with those who are inclined not to like his policies. They are now inclined not to like him. His supporters would say, “Nothing new there,” but actually I think there is. I’m referring to the broad, stable, nonradical, non-birther right. Among them the level of dislike for the president has ratcheted up sharply the past few months.

It’s not due to the election, and it’s not because the Republican candidates are so compelling and making such brilliant cases against him. That, actually, isn’t happening.

What is happening is that the president is coming across more and more as a trimmer, as an operator who’s not operating in good faith. This is hardening positions and leading to increased political bitterness. And it’s his fault, too. As an increase in polarization is a bad thing, it’s a big fault.”

Yes, cutting deals with a thug like Putin and attacking American business from the Rose Garden of the White House is both foolish and polarizing and those two things put the American People at risk and only divide America and since less than 50 percent of the American People even bother to turn out and vote (see ZeroHedge.com – Presenting America’s Political Apathy: Voter Turnout Rate < 50%)….

….then dividing America is the REAL goal here because if one can divide America enough and garner the votes of ONLY 26 percent of the American People that are eligible to vote or roughly 60 million Americans a person can be elected or re-elected President of the United States.

Yes, cutting deals with thugs and demonizing American companies while America piles up Trillions of Dollars of debt onto the backs of all of children and grandchildren….

…makes sense…if you don’t give a Damn about the American Republic and American People.

The Wall Street Journal Hosts Erskine Bowles and Alan Simpson to Discuss America’s Debt Debacle and Bowles and Simpson Do What They Always Seem to Do….Tell the TRUTH – Yes, the Current “Leaders” of the American Republic Should Be Mighty Proud That They Will Go Down In History Forever as the Destroyers of the American Republic….BUT….Why Would They Care About History When Their ONLY Concern Is Getting Their Own Precious Asses Re-Elected To Office and the Children, Grandchildren and Millions of Yet Unborn American Children Can Just Go to Hell! – Washington DC = Den of Thieves Which Just Happens To Be the Title of One of the Great Books Written About the Sorry Ass Bastards on Wall Street by the Great Author James B. Stewart

The Wall Street Journal’s Alan Murray talked with Erskine Bowles and Alan Simpson earlier today about the Massive Debt Debacle that is now facing the American Republic which was addressed by the very reasonable and balanced Simpson – Bowles commission otherwise known as the National Commission on Fiscal Responsibility and Reform which put out a report in December 2010 that both President Obama and the US Congress just completely blew-off because as ALL Americans must know by now…NONE of these SOBs in Washington DC don’t give two-rips about anything but the NEXT election.

One day in the future when the American Debt Debacle unwinds both historians and the American People are going to look back at the actions of George W. Bush, Barack Obama and the rest of American’s “Elected Leaders” in the first 15 years of the 21 st century and wonder just what in the Hell these SOBs were thinking…..Oh….they were more concerned with getting their precious asses re-elected than about the future of the American Republic and all of our children, grandchildren and Millions of Americans that will be born into and be responsible for all this debt?

How proud America’s “Leaders” must be of themselves that they are going to go down in history forever as the Destroyers of the American Republic. Yes, their mothers and fathers of America’s “Leaders” should be mighty proud of them and no doubt the American People via Federal Grand Juries will have some questions as well about just what the Hell happened, who the Hell did what, who the Hell took votes on which things and signed what and who exactly didn’t give a Damn about anything but their own precious ass.

Yes, all of this makes sense but it only make sense in one place….Washington DC which will be known in future history books as…..

The Den of Thieves

(Sorry to James Stewart for stealing the title of his great book Den of Thieves which seems appropriate for modern day Washington DC as well. By the way Stewart’s Den of Thieves tells the tale of one of the dozen or more times that the Sorry Ass Bastards on Wall Street almost took down the American Republic and that is just in the last 20 years!)

Here’s an Amazon.com link to….

James B. Stewart’s Den of Thieves

Meanwhile back in Debt Debacle Land otherwise known as the American Republic here are some videos from the Wall Street’s Journal conversation with Alan Simpson and Erskine Bowles….ALL Americans should watch and learn:

The Lorax Movie? Our Wives Report Back That the Lorax Movie Is Complete Hogwash Wrapped In Total BS – Oh, But What Is This….The Hunger Games Movie….Which Is About Young People Standing Up Against An Overwhelming, Overpowering and Dominating Government That Doesn’t Give Two Rips About the People…Hmmmmm, Sounds Familiar! – Yes, Hunger Games Has Some Promise….But Then There Was A Recent Time In American History When Young People Stood Up and Said….”Enough BIG Government….It’s Time To Try Something Different”….And That Time Was……Oh, You Know!

After our wives took our children to the Dr. Seuss Lorax movie….

…and reported back that Lorax was nothing but a Propaganda movie about the evils of capitalism and when we write “capitalism” we are talking about REAL Free Market Capitalism and not the Crony and Candy Ass Pussy “Capitalism” that is now practiced on Wall Street and in parts of corporate America where when one wins they get to keep the profits and when they lose they come begging to the American People to get their Sorry Asses bailed out with 5 bailouts for Wall Street just in the last 20 years and another bailout on the way because we all know….Wall Street will blow the U.S. financial system again….because that is the only thing those Sorry Bastards know how to do anymore.

We agree with the GREAT American architect Frank Lloyd Wright when it comes to capitalism….

“I believe totally in the Capitalist System, I only wish someone would try it.”

Amen to that Frank….Amen to that!

BUT….things are looking up in Hollywood because there is a new movie out titled “Hunger Games” which according to James P. Pinkerton’s review looks to be the most realistic movie made in years in La-La Land!

“Hunger Games” shoots arrows at big government, big media, hits bullseye, James P. Pinkerton, FoxNews.com

“The new movie “Hunger Games” seems destined to be a big hit. Yes, “Games” is a challenging story–a dystopian future in which an oppressive government forces young people into gladiator-type battles-to-the-death–but it’s getting good buzz and good reviews. One critic described “Games” as “like ‘American Idol’ with a body count.”

So c’mon folks! Head down to the ‘plex, buy your ticket, plunk down another $10 for soda and popcorn, and watch good-looking actors and actresses exchange longing glances as they kill each other.

Let everyone should know one thing: “Games” is not just another slasher/horror scream flick–but rather a furious critique of our political system, in which the central government grows rich from the toil of the masses, even as that same political elite finds entertainment in the contrived and manipulated death of its subjects.

“Games” is fantasy fiction, to be sure, but if it can be said that all fiction holds a mirror to the society from which it came, then the contemporary US government–as well as our popular culture, which also comes in for a drubbing–might wish to reflect on its status and standing in our society.

Why?

Because a new generation, having grown up in the midst of futile foreign wars and feckless bailouts to billionaires–even as the middle class continues to erode–might wish to make some changes in our system.

Every rising generation changes the politics of its predecessors, and yet today, three years into a “recovery,” as the vast majority of Americans think that the US is on the wrong track, the coming changes to America could prove to be profound. That is, as an indicator of youth sentiment, the movie could prefigure, and accelerate, future political change.

“Hunger Games” was first a young-adult novel, published by author Suzanne Collins in 2008; it sold 11 million copies, while two sequels sold a total of 15 million more. With that sort of momentum in the youth demographic, it was inevitable that movie makers would come knocking.

But “Games” does not fit easily into the smug-money liberalism of Hollywood; author Collins has made it plain that she wrote the first book as an allegory against the Iraq War, and she also included a ferocious satire of showbiz culture and hypocritical politicians.”

HEY! We may have something here with this Hunger Games movie!

Let’s check out the trailer for Hunger Games…

Now that looks like a modern day version of George Orwell’s 1984 which makes Hunger Games very Damn appropriate in 2012 which is a time defined in America by….

“Elected Leaders” piling up Trillions of Dollars of National Debt and running Trillion Dollar annual deficits for as far as the eye can see.

The Federal Reserve running a Massive Ponzi Scheme by buying the majority of the debt issued by the US Government

Bogus, Stupid and Completely Useless Wars on the other side of the planet that are being fought by less than 1 percent of the American People while the Elitists and their children sit their precious asses in the United States of America far from the frontlines.

Powerful officials getting away with stealing Billions of Dollars from the American People while poor black Americans get tossed into jail for stealing candy bars from the local 7-Eleven

A Political and Corporate Elite that does not give two-rips about the American Republic, American People or the children of America

Yes, Hunger Games looks promising and when we talk to young people in America today we are encouraged because they are not going to tolerate the Absolute Bullshit that has been going on in America for a few decades now with OUR “Elected Leaders” selling the American People out to the highest bidder and then turning around and telling one LIE after another to We the People with the Elitists Bastards main concern being one thing and one thing only…

Gaining or holding onto power which means getting their precious asses into elective office or re-elected and if they have to take down the American Republic in the meantime…..they don’t give a Damn.

There was another time in American history during our lives when we heard young Americans talk the way we hear them talk today….

The Late 1970s was that time and all students of American History know what happened next……a voice stepped forward that talked about Freedom, Liberty and the American Way….
