"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.
Mark Twain said it best, "If you have nothing to say, say nothing." A principle from life that is in the Good Book, says, "actions speak louder than words." Another maxim every kid in America has heard, "If you do not have anything nice to say, do not say a word." Now, George W. Bush is heralding that advice, "Barack Obama deserves my silence." I agree with the Ex-President, Obama's actions and daily missteps of incompetence are speaking volumes, so sit back, relax, turn your cell-phone off, and be quiet, so we all can enjoy the Obama Show. SILENCE, SHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH.
The legal term is Lex Talionis, "an eye for an eye. a tooth for a tooth," or in other words retributive justice, in Islam it mirrors exact and equivalent justice. That is why in Muslim Countries that follow strict Lex Talionis principles the crime rate is very low, many crimes lead to the punishment of death; for the following crimes of rape, sodomy, homosexuality, adultery, murder, just to name a few.
Today, the shoe-thrower of Iraq received 3 years in prison for his assault on the President of the United States. Many are making this a heavy sentence, however if this occurred lets say in New York City at a press briefing, that individual would be looking to serve Ten Years.
Title 18 Chapter 84 sec. 1751 Assault on the President of the United States.
§ 1751. Presidential and Presidentialstaff assassination, kidnapping, and assault; penalties
(a)(1)any individual who is the President of the United States, the President-elect, the Vice President, or, if there is no Vice President, the officer next in the order of succession to the Office of the President of the United States, the Vice President-elect, or any person who is acting as President under the Constitution and laws of the United States, or
(e)Whoever assaults any person designated in subsection (a)(1) shall be fined under this title, or imprisoned not more than ten years, or both. Whoever assaults any person designated in subsection (a)(2) shall be fined under this title, or imprisoned not more than one year, or both; and if the assault involved the use of a dangerous weapon, or personal injury results, shall be fined under this title, or imprisoned not more than ten years, or both.
In less than 48 hours the Executive Branch will transfer power from one presidency of George W. Bush to Barack Hussein Obama. Article II of the Constitution offers the framework for this peaceful transfer. As George and Laura are packing their belongings, the pundits and news corps are putting the final nail in the Bush Presidency Coffin. The press is reporting that Bush is leaving with the lowest approval rating of any past president at 22% approval rating. I say, so what? Because this is comparable to Harry Truman's approval rating when he left office back in the fifties. How does History and the Press view Harry Truman? Harry Truman is regarded as a great President who made tough decisions during trying times in USA's history. Maybe fifty years from now, history and the Press will view George W. Bush in the same light, a great President who made tough decisions during trying times in USA's history.
HARRY S. TRUMAN APPROVAL RATINGS
GEORGE W. BUSH APPROVAL RATINGS
It has been said that Great Leaders are not born, but are made and it is further stated that events define Great Leaders as with Harry Truman it was World War II and with George W. Bush it was 9/11 and the War on Terror. I am here to say, that George W. Bush protected the USA with all his power and might, in such a way, that no attack on USA soil has occurred since that defining day 09/11/2001. For this we all owe George W. Bush our deepest gratitude. Thank You George, and maybe when you are gone and we see the direction of Barack Hussein Obama's presidency, your approval ratings will sky rocket.
George W. Bush, I abandoned free-market principles to save GM & Chrysler, handed over $17.4 Billion to the Auto-Makers, Ford said, "No Thanks." I wonder which stock pick would be the best bet in the long term, Ford? GM? or Chrysler? HMM . . . that is easy, how about the one with no federal bailout. The funds are part of the $700 Billion of TARP. The New York Times label the bailout as a temporary life-line. Does the NYT know that this is already a failure?
WASHINGTON — President Bush tossed General Motors and Chrysler a temporary lifeline from the taxpayers on Friday, announcing $13.4 billion in emergency loans to prevent the collapse of the companies, with another $4 billion to become available in February.
The president’s plan gives carmakers until March 31 to restructure.
The loans, conditioned on G.M. and Chrysler undertaking sweeping reorganizations plans to show that they can return to profitability, are meant to keep the companies afloat until March 31. At that point, the Obama administration will determine if the automakers are meeting the conditions of the loans and thus will continue to receive government aid or must repay the loans and face bankruptcy.
“These are not ordinary circumstances,” Mr. Bush said in televised remarks that quickly touched off a debate over the fairness of his plan. “In the midst of a financial crisis and a recession, allowing the U.S. auto industry to collapse is not a responsible course of action.”
Mr. Bush made his announcement a week after Senate Republicans blocked an automaker bailout that had been negotiated by the White House and Congressional Democrats. The loan package announced by the president includes requirements that are roughly identical to those in that bill, which was approved by the House. Read Full Story
Maybe Dubya is just paying GM back for the Cadillac One: The Presidential State Car is the official state car used by the President of the United States. Analogous to the President's use of an airplane designated Air Force One, the automobile is informally known as "Cadillac One".
The current Presidential State Car is a 2005 hand-crafted, armored version of the stretch CadillacDTS (DeVille Touring Sedan) built on a GM platform.The vehicle was custom built by Centigon (formerly O'Gara, Hess & Eisenhardt).It was first used on January 20, 2005 during the second inauguration parade of George W. Bush. The Secret Service refers to the heavily-armored vehicle as "the beast." Mr. Bush abandoned free-market principles, so Barack Hussein Obama could enjoy the use of Cadillac One on January 20, 2009. But, $17.4 Billion for Cadillac One is a huge price to pay, I just hope it includes spinners on the wheels.
Stop me before I hurl a shoe. Well it looks like the Shoe hit the head of the President, how else can you explain this flawed logic. To save the Free Market Economy, I abandoned the Free Market Economy. As John Stossel would say, "GIVE ME A BREAK" or as Muntadhar al Zaidi would say, "GIVE ME A SHOE." Read More of this flawed logic and the working out details of the UAW Bailout in Bloomberg.
George Bush's epitaph makes as much sense as what GWB did for the Republican party, I abandoned conservative principles to save the Republican party. No Mr. President you abandoned conservative principles and destroyed the Republican party and now you are destroying our economy.
In Iraq today, Muslims are crying out to free the shoe-thrower, free the shoe-thrower. CNN International is reporting that, the Television Station that the Shoe-Thrower a.k.a., Muntadhar al-Zaidi reported for Al-Baghdadia is seeking the Shoe thrower's release. Read Full Story
This is the translation of what the Iraqi shoe-thrower said as he threw the shoes. (Also -- In Iraq throwing a shoe and calling someone a dog is an extreme insult.)
This is the gift from the Iraqis this is the farewell kiss you dog.
This is from the widows, the orphans and those killed in Iraq.
I wonder if the Shoe-Thrower a.k.a. Muntadhar al-Zaidi will become as popular as Joe-the-plumber did? In the meantime, the shoe-thrower is cooling his heels in an Iraqi jail.
Update 1: He is the next Joe the Plumber, Al-Zaidi the shoe-thrower:
Shoe insult against Bush resounds in Arab world
BAGHDAD: A day after an Iraqi television journalist threw his shoes at President George W. Bush at a news conference here Sunday, his act of defiance toward the American commander in chief reverberated throughout Iraq and across the Arab world.
In Sadr City, the sprawling Baghdad suburb that has seen some of the most intense fighting between insurgents and U.S. soldiers since the 2003 invasion, thousands of people marched in his defense. In Syria, he was hailed as a hero. In Libya, he was given an award for courage. Read Full Story
