I just don't understand people saying things are not Obama's fault.
He has the job. His policies, actions, inactions and general attitude about how things should be, drive these things.
He begged for the job and promised a ton of stuff. Where is it?
The oceans haven't lowered. If anything, the standard of living has went down. More people are unemployed/underemployed than ever. He might have inherited a bad situation but he hasn't done anything to improve it. He had control of both houses for two years after he came in.
He campaigned for the job four years ago, got it and whines that all of the good and none of the bad is his responsibility.
All I know is my income is down. I am paying more for everything including gasoline that is twice the cost as it was when he came into office. He doesn't believe in american exceptionalism and I am sick of it.
They want to say he was taken out of context when he said, "You didn't build that"
He wasn't. His view is that all good comes from Government.
Take the shed I am building.
I sold some equipment to a customer to earn the money to purchase the materials.
I paid income tax on that money.
The customer I sold that equipment to paid taxes on that equipment.
I paid sales tax on the material I bought.
I paid taxes on the gasoline that I used to haul it
I paid taxes in the form of tag and registration on the truck I used to haul it.
After I build the building, the Tax Assessor will come out and raise my property taxes because I improved my property.
I think I paid for the road I drove to get all of this stuff.
All that Government has to give is what it has taken from someone else.
The voices in my head don't like you.
If you are a fan of fat girls, Dave Matthews CD's are better than a ham on a fishing pole.
Every normal man must be tempted at times to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag, and begin to slit throats.
