Roanoke Times Just Peachy With 8% Unemployment

As long as they have their jobs, so what if a massive tax increase sends the anemic economy back into recession?

See the Roanoke Times editorial, "Don't renew any Bush tax cuts."

To everyone outside the asylum, that means Obama should raise taxes.  On everyone.

I wonder if they'll blame the 2014 Depression on George W. Bush and Bain Capital?

Obama Comes To Roanoke

Vows to fight for the Middle Class.

Attendees believe him.

As they did four years ago.

The dumbasses.

Kiss 'Hope & Change' Goodbye

Now it's all lies and deceit.  And about winning by any means necessary.

Obama's gang is now calling Mitt Romney a felon?

Really?

Do we really want to have to endure four more years of this?


Four More Years! Four More Years!

I had to look this up.

As it so happens, there are 196 countries in the world today.

Why would that suddenly be important?

Because I had to see if the U. S. was dead last in economic growth last year.

Turns out?

We weren't.

We were 159th.

The United States of America.

By the way, the guy who brought about that glorious achievement was in Roanoke yesterday:

President Obama focuses on the economy during Roanoke speech

159th.

One wonders what he was "focused on" last year.

Obama in Roanoke:  Hey, we beat Sudan!  I deserve reelection!

Darn

Roseanne Barr won't be running against Mitt Romney after all:
Doctor poised for Green Party nod for president
By Brian White, Associated Press

A Massachusetts doctor who ran against Republican Mitt Romney for governor a decade ago is poised to challenge him again as the Green Party's nominee for president.

Dr. Jill Stein isn't shy about admitting her candidacy is a super long shot. Still, she noted that a growing number of people are expressing frustration with the nation's two mainstream political parties. She cited the Occupy Wall Street movement as an example.

Stein was far ahead of comedian Roseanne Barr for the party's nomination.

Stein, of Lexington, Mass., has been running for office in Massachusetts over the past decade. In her first race against Romney, she only mustered 3 percent of the vote. [link]
Experts in the media fret that Stein will take votes away from Barack Obama in November. But realistically, the only states where she'll have any presence at all are states that he's going to carry by a wide margin. So enough of that.

More importantly, I was really wanting to see a comedian in the race to liven it up.

Oh ... wait. I forgot about ...


We're good.

War On Coal? What War On Coal?

This one.

For details go here.

On the price everyone will pay when the electric bill comes due go here.

Putting Americans who work in the coalfields into the unemployment line so as to achieve a goal that is infinitesimal in its estimated impact on the environment is one thing. Making utility bills unaffordable for the entire nation is another.

It would do you well to know what Obama's EPA is doing to you.

Total estimated cost?  $9.6 billion.  Total estimated benefit?  $6 million.

In other words:


You'll be paying every penny of it.  And winter is approaching.

May God help those who can't help themselves.
