January 9, 2013

Assume for a moment that you could increase the borrowing limit on your credit card any time you wanted, without even notifying the financial institution from which you got it....

That's the way they do it in the Third World - it's a mentality thing! Now even that Nobel-winning economic genius at NYTimes is endorsing the proposal that Obama simply mint a trillion dollar PLATINUM coin for deposit at the Treasury, and then borrow against it as a possible alternative to raising the debt limit! And he also TEACHES at Princeton!

Thanks to our pvt oil companies and their developing technologies, trooper; absolutely none to Obama even if he does come late to table on the pipeline.

The MSGR might have noted that as SENATOR Obama said in helping defeat a debt ceiling increase in 2006 that increasing it would be "a sign that the US Govt can't pay its bills...[and] is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren," adding that the "America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership." Now Obama says we should understand the vantage point of a senator vs. that of a president, so, as President, "you start realizing...we can't play around with this stuff." On-the-job training as President, I guess, just as with was with all those measures Bush took - and Senator Obama opposed - against terrorism that Obama now reaffirmed AND strengthened! It's to be expected, I presume, with a president elevated from community organizer/agitator - the very ultimate in affirmative action.

It’s not only unbelievable how Obama, who is a constitution lawyer, continuously tries to exercise unlawful executive authority and bypass congress, but most striking is how the American people encourage and support him. If Obama could rewrite the U.S. Constitution and eliminate the House and Senate maybe we could eliminate 635 jobs, save money, and run the country with executive authority. Until that happens, I would encourage Americans to “complete your homework” and read the constitution and make informed decisions. There’s a reason why those who framed it recognized the need for “Checks and Balances” and not just allowing the President to issue executive mandates as he (and his Czars) determine. Now as a consumer, I think I’ll go out today and spend my way to prosperity (with or without the Trillion dollar coin)!
