U.S. DEBT: ROUND 2

Rich-Uncle-Pennybags“The last time America was debt free was 1836.

“That lasted one year.

“Today we’re $17.5 trillion in debt.

“How’d we get here? Consider this: When Mr. Obama went to Brussels this week, he took a 900-person entourage, three cargo planes, two 747s, a slew of support planes, a phalanx of Marine One helicopters and nearly 50 vehicles for his motorcade. That was for a 24-hour stay.” Joseph Curl

“As a nation, we currently are carrying a national debt of $17.5 trillion. If we repaid it at a rate of $10 million per day, seven days a week, 365 days per year, it would take 4,700 years to repay…Additionally, we have unfunded liabilities of at least $100 trillion.” Ben S. Carson, The Washington Times, March 17, 2014, p. 31

U.S. won’t be world’s richest nation for long

Joseph Curl, The Washington Times, March 31, 2014, p. 28

ANALYSIS/OPINION:

Sometimes, especially lately, it’s depressing to think about the future of the U.S.

The economy has been in the doldrums since Barack Obama took office, and, in a slew of ways, is actually worse now. Median incomes are the lowest since 1995 [http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/09/17/median-income-falls-inequality_n_3941514.html], the workforce is its smallest in nearly 50 years [http://dailycaller.com/2014/03/13/data-shows-millions-of-americans-falling-out-of-the-workforce/], real unemployment is running at 16.6 percent [http://www.gallup.com/poll/125639/Gallup-Daily-Workforce.aspx], and all those 20-something kids who should be working are moving back home with their parents. [http://www.cnn.com/2013/10/01/living/parents-moving-home-millennials/]

But that’s not the real problem. See, on top of all that, we’re $17.5 trillion in debt. Continue reading

Questions For Obama

“Dear Mr. President, I [Michael Savage] and millions of Americans who love this nation would like me to sit down with you over a Chinese meal in San Francisco.  To clear the air.  To end the mistrust and hatred that has infected the air itself.  Without cameras.  No makeup.  Just you and I sharing Hunan dishes I know you would like…I’d like to ask you a few question that are plaguing the nation.

“1. Why did you insist on pushing into the Civil Rights Division of the Justice Department a lawyer who defended the assassin of a police officer?  A lawyer who has such a hatred for the police and law enforcement that he called them ‘an occupying fascist presence’?”

MICHAEL SAVAGE’S QUESTIONS FOR OBAMA

What ‘Bill O’Reilly didn’t ask’ in his interview

WorldNetDaily, February 10, 2014

On his nationally syndicated show today, talk-radio host Michael Savage will present the questions he would like to ask President Obama in a sit-down interview.

“The Savage Nation” airs from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. Eastern Time, noon to 3 p.m. Pacific, on Cumulus Media Networks stations and others nationwide.

Savage said they’re “questions Bill O’Reilly didn’t ask” in his interview with the president before the Super Bowl on the Fox television network.

He poses his invitation to Obama this way:

“Dear Mr. President, I and millions of Americans who love this nation would like me to sit down with you over a Chinese meal in San Francisco. To clear the air. To end the mistrust and hatred that has infected the air itself. Without cameras. No makeup. Just you and I sharing Hunan dishes I know you would like. Over shrimps and Napa cabbage, Hunan velvet chicken, crispy meat pie and steamed pork dumplings, I’d like to ask you a few questions that are plaguing the nation.”

Here are Savage’s questions for Obama: Continue reading

Eagles Killed

“Wind farms given 30 year pass on eagle deaths.” Robert Wildewindmill-wind-farm-turbine-kill-bald-eagles-birds-bats-sad-hill-news

“The Obama administration is about to approve a rule that will ensure the death of golden and bald eagles for the next 30 more years.

“Hundreds of thousands of birds die each year flying into the deadly turbine blades atop the soaring towers that compose wind farms.  The rule will give wind farms thirty year permits for the ‘non purposeful take of eagles-that is where the take is associated with but not the purpose of, the activity.’  The take of eagles is also a euphemism for the slaughter of them.

“The wind farms fulfill Obama’s ambitious pursuit of developing renewable energy sources.  Unfortunately, some bird species being destroyed by the turbines are not renewable.  As a result, Obama finds himself wedged between the ire of opposing green groups.  In July, wildlife groups met with administration officials and lobbied against the granting of 30 year permits for energy companies that own the wind farms.

“Wildlife groups are advocating shorter leases and insist that a 30-year free pass for eagle ‘taking’ is too long.  They argue that before we are stuck with three decades of the rule, there are still some unanswered questions about how to prevent the destroying of the birds.  Julie Falkner, the Defenders of Wildlife’s Senior Director of Renewable Energy Programs pondered, ‘The question is what is the science telling us about how to prevent eagle takings, and we’re still waiting for the science to tell us how that works.’” Robert Wilde,  Breitbart.com, December 6, 2013
