Certainly hasn’t been the best week for Americans, especially the unemployed – Obama stopped the Keystone Pipeline in its tracks, conveniently putting any decision on the pipeline off until 2013. Of course he’s already been told by Stephen Harper, the Canadian prime minister that Canada won’t wait on Obama; they will make a deal with someone else (probably China.)
Obama slapped Ohio around delaying their shale gas drilling by cancelling a mineral lease auction for Wayne National Forest (WNF.) EPA is messing with our minds, our money and our jobs – Obama gave the lame excuse that he wants EPA to study the effects of hydraulic fracturing. Hydraulic Fracturing has been around since the 1940’s
The University of Texas at Austin’s Energy Institute said no direct links to water contamination due to the hydraulic fracturing in their preliminary study.
EPA did a study of hydraulic fracturing in 2004 and found nothing to link it to water contamination. Now EPA wants three years to revisit the subject, which means we’ve just lost thousands of jobs due to Obama and EPA.
As we all know, Obama also stopped the creation of 100,000 jobs on the Gulf Coast, because he doesn’t want new energy production on his watch. He wants us to remain energy dependent on Middle Eastern Oil and George Soros (his bud and puppeteer.) George is the guy who received a huge hunk of our money for Petrobras in Brazil.
Makes one wonder about the real story behind the BP oil spill – perfect timing for an oil spill so off sure drilling could be stopped and thousands of jobs lost – sounds like the same Obama strategy used with Fast and Furious in a scheme to control America’s right to bear arms.
Eric Holder, the Attorney General should have removed from office a year ago because of the corrupt, illegal and deadly “Fast and Furious” gunrunner operation; Eric is still foot loose and fancy free. He has called for review of all states that have Voter ID laws in place before the 2012 Presidential Election. Basically the States believe it takes more than a water bill to prove one’s identification.
ACORN was quite a problem at the polls in 2008 if you remember and it seems reasonable to put a stop to ACORN’s illegal activities at the polls. Guess that’s why Democrats are shaking in their shoes – not going to be so easy to rig the Presidential Election for 2012.
They sound like a bunch of raving lunatics when they say laws requiring voter ID will prevent millions from voting. If in fact there are millions out their without identification, they must be counting criminals, felons, illegal aliens and all the other junk yard dogs. DEMS can relax; those without ID’s have 11 months to secure an ID; so I guess there really isn’t any problem.
This brings us to some of Obama’s best friends, Jeffrey Immelt, head of Obama’s Job Counsel and CEO of GE not only weasels out of GE’s tax obligations, they’re moving more of their GE infrastructure to China. General Electric, the nation’s largest industrial company, reports net earnings for the third quarter of $3.2 billion, up 57 percent from the same period in 2010. Go figure, they’re on our turf, avoiding their tax obligations and stealing our jobs.
Ironic that Obama is out campaigning using class warfare saying the wealthy should pay their fair share. This is a parallel to the Obamacare vouchers – guess Obama’s friends receive immunity from their tax obligations.
Last but not least on this weeks “person of interest” is NJ past Governor John Corzine (former CEO of MF Global. Obama and Biden touted Jon as the smartest man they know, so smart in fact he helped orchestrate the “redistribution” of taxpayer’s stimulus package. The smartest man they know just lost 1.2 billion dollars belonging to MF Global investors – easy come easy go!
