"PRIVATE SECTOR NOT GOVERNMENT WILL FIX THE ECONOMY"
While the Amazing Barack Hussein the Multi-Tasker can kill a fly on CNBC, former President George W Bush took a swipe at Obama's agenda. Speaking in Erie, Pennsylvania today W took a swipe at Obama's socialistic policies and in the process gave the business leaders listening to W, the political fly swatters needed to combat the Obama takeover of the U.S. economy.
The best quote which states the proper role of government by W was:
"Government does not create wealth. The major role of government is to create an environment where people take risks to expand the job rate in the United States."
Notice W said nothing about saving jobs, but to expand the job market, this is what the private sector does best, create jobs. Bush continued, "you (the people) can spend your money better than the government can spend your money." While saying these words the U.S. Treasury announced that it will auction $104 Billion in debt next week, yes, that is a record. The Obama administration and the greatest and most amazing economic team in history is not only killing flies, but is killing the U.S. Dollar and the entrepreneurial spirit that will produce risk takers who will create jobs.
You gotta love Alfonzo Rachel a real conservative Brother in every sense of the word. Watch his new video, a message to the nation called ZONATION, at the end of the video he brings it all together. "Capitalism, right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, This is what made this country great. NOT, socialism, right to death, debauchery, and equal distribution of misery. This is what liberals want." Furthermore, Barack Obama is implementing the latter as I type and as you read, so wake-up America.
Driving down Interstate 35 North toward downtown Kansas City, Missouri, you will see the Old Coca-Cola Billboard that has been there for ages, just North Pepsi has placed a Billboard with their New Logo with one word above, "FABULOUS."
The logo is a take from the Obama 2008 Presidential Campaign Logo, so I was wondering is Obama a Pepsi Man or a Coke Man (personally Lex Rex is a Coca-Cola man, specifically diet Coke). Yahoo News, has broken the story Micahel Scherer asked this question: Is Pepsi actually the choice of the Obama Administration?
My reporting at the White House suggests the answer is a resounding no. Several senior Administration officials are committed cola drinkers, and without fail they spend their days sipping from a can of Diet Coke, a product of Pepsi's chief competitor, Coca-Cola. On Monday, as members of Congress and key lobbyists filed into a briefing room for the final event of a daylong fiscal summit, they were greeted with an ice chest full of complimentary Diet Coke, not Diet Pepsi. (MontanaDemocratic Senator Max Baucus was one of many to grab a can.) Hours earlier, at a breakout session with members of Congress in the Indian Treaty Room, Office of Management and Budget Director Peter Orszag handled not one, but two cans of Diet Coke during the nearly two hour session. Larry Summers, Obama's top economic adviser, rarely walks anywhere in the White House complex without a can of Diet Coke in his hand. He is well known for interrupting conversations to take another swig. READ FULL STORY
This maybe the only good news about Obama and his presidency that The Invisible Hand will report, but I am glad Coca-Cola is USA's drink of choice and can be found all over the world.
COCA-COLA KANSAS CITY BILLBOARD
The Invisible Hand has another take on why Coca-Cola is the Obama Cola of Choice and it goes back to the Obama Doctrine, You SEE WORLD PEACE IS BASED ON HAVING A COKE AND SINGING THE COKE SONG . . . OBAMA COLA IS COCA-COLA. -LEX REX
Frustration has hit an all time high at the World Headquarters of the INVISIBLE HAND. I am a man of Faith, and I know that God places leaders into power that He wills, but that does not stop myself, Lex Rex, the reporter for the Invisible Hand from becoming frustrated and blurting out things like, "I thought I would never see this in my lifetime." There is so much going on . . . I did not even know what to write about, so I am venting and buying ammo.
Unconstitutional Bill in the Senate to give voting rights and Representative to the District of Columbia (the Constitution is very specific and the founders were also, only STATES have Sovereignty and that Right).
An Obama assault on guns, specifically assault guns, it is time to stock-up my dear and do not forget the ammo.
Bailouts for Responsible Homeowners, if you are in foreclosure YOU ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE, a responsible homeowner prepares for the future and lives within their means.
Now a budget that includes a nearly $2 Trillion Dollar deficit. Just so you know, George Bush's first OVERALL Budget TOTAL in 2001, was less than the $2 Trillion Deficit. Here how it looks on a graph chart:
This is OBAMA CHANGE, soon and very soon the street corners of Kansas City will look different, instead of homeless holding signs for food, they will be holding signs that state, "HELP!!! COMMUNISTS TOOK ALL MY MONEY."
Obama is redirecting enormous streams of deficit spending toward programs like health care, education and energy, and paying for some of it through taxes on the rich, pollution surcharges, and cuts in such inviolable programs as farm subsidies, the $3.55 trillion spending plan Mr. Obama's undertaking signals a radical change of course that Congress will eventually endorse and the USA will be stuck holding the bag, unless we start standing for Liberty and the Principles found in the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution. Everyday further into the Obama Presidency, the USA is sinking further, and further into the PRISON of a NATIONAL STATE, where the individual no longer matters, but the collective good exceeds all liberty. If we as Americans do not stop this RADICAL ADVANCE in WASHINGTON, by the Executive & Legislative Branch, one day soon, very soon, you are going to wake-up and ask this question. "What happen to my liberty, my unalienable rights, & my country I loved?
The rollicking wish-fulfillment film “Slumdog Millionaire,” nearly dumped into the marketplace last year as a direct-to-DVD offering, fulfilled its destiny Sunday at Hollywood’s Kodak Theatre, taking 8 out of 10 Academy Awards for which it was nominated, including best film, best director, best adapted screenplay, best cinematography and best score.
Even before its big night, Danny Boyle’s film had grossed more than $160 million worldwide, a little more than 10 times its modest production costs. And for the first time since “Oliver!” 40 years ago, a rags-to-riches crowd-pleaser about an orphan overcoming the worst sort of human venality, ending with a big dance number, left the Oscar ceremony with a best picture statuette.
So today off I went to view Slumdog Millionaire, just to see for myself, the best picture. After viewing this film, and yes it was very good, I wanted to present to you the story of survival, because the slums, maybe unknown to Americans are stories of survival, as Slumdog Millionaire illustrates.
What, exactly, are slums? Some, especially in the developed world, are once-affluent neighborhoods gone to ruin; others were once public housing. But most are gigantic, tightly packed concentrations of flimsy shacks and shanties that rural migrants have built on the outskirts of cities—what the UN calls “vast informal settlements that are quickly becoming the visual expression of urban poverty.”
Most of these settlements are in the developing world. Of the 924 million slum dwellers worldwide in 2001, 554 million lived in Asia, in such cities as Mumbai and Kolkata in India and Karachi in Pakistan. Another 187 million lived in Africa, in places like Cairo, Durban, Johannesburg, and Nairobi. And 128 million lived in Latin America and the Caribbean (famously, in the favelas of Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo). Only 54 million were in developed countries.
Here is a look into the Dharavi Slum in Mumbai, where the movie was filmed:
Capitalism, Free Trade, Private Property are all keys of hope for the inhabitants of the slums of Dharavi, just as Johnny Lever, the Bollywood Comic, escaped the slums and as many others do as India's economy expands.For some, escape is still just a dream
Meantime, the slums encroach on the doorstep of one of Mumbai’s most wealthy suburbs, Andheri, sometimes referred to as Mumbai’s Beverly Hills. It is where Bollywood’s top actors and producers live, and where we met Johnny Lever, one the country’s most popular comedians, who has acted in more than 300 Bollywood movies.
Lever was born and raised in Dharavi, where as a child he scraped a living for his family by mimicking movie stars. He had no formal education and could not speak proper Hindi (he spoke the street slang of the slums), but his impersonations and song and dance routines eventually drew the attention of the real Bollywood.
"If you have talent, nothing can stop you," he told me. "You can get out of the slums."
Ahire isn’t so sure. "I realized my dream," he told me. "I became a doctor." But for most of those living in Mumbai’s teeming slums getting out of the slums remains just that – a dream. The only key is CAPITALISM, FREE TRADE, EDUCATION, & PRIVATE PROPERTY RIGHTS, the same keys that developed the greatest nation and economy on earth, USA.
