The Republican side of the Senate Budget Committee will release this chart
later today, clearly showing that America's debt is greater than the
combined debt of the entire Eurozone and the U.K.:
As the chart shows, America's debt is currently $15.1 trillion, while the
Eurozone (which includes France, Germany, Greece, Italy, Spain, the U.K.,
and others) has a combined debt of $12.7 trillion. (All dollar amounts are
in U.S. dollars, and the data refers to closing 2011 numbers.)
This from a friend, concerned citizen, fellow memo reader and a person who has his head screwed on right not left! (See 1 below.)
Since most presidential elections turn out like Pelosi's stupid comment, which I am paraphrasing, 'we have to elect them first in order to find out what we have,' let's, for the moment, eliminate charisma and hype and just look at the record(s.)
In the case of Obama, we elected a man who had a past of radical associations, we were never given the opportunity of finding out whether he was even Constitutionally qualified for office, and his record of prior accomplishments was as thin, if not thinner, than Sara Palin's yet, the press and media folks adored him and smothered the electorate in favorable articles and leg tingling crap.
Then we found out who he was - a radical who sought to change our very rights and freedoms, who apologized for our nation's intrusions and accomplishments and his 'czarish appointments,' of even greater radicals, are mind boggling if not bizarre.
Note I have yet to say a thing about his leadership, tactics and personality. I leave that to your personal digestive system.
His opponent has a history of stability even to the point of stolidness. He is a self made family man with a record of achievements based on a range of challenges, assumed tasks and responsibilities covering a variety of fields - public and private for which he mostly executed without pay.
His vision of this country accords with our Constitutional precepts and foundation but the press and media slaves must protect their man so it is doubtful we will get many tingling articles or anything favorable but nagging reminders of how dull he is and how he cannot possibly connect with the 'common man' since he is of a 'foreign religion' and, above all, is very wealthy - even filthy rich!.
In the ring we have a proven charismatic light weight versus a proven uninspiring heavy weight and we will be asked to place our bets on what will be our nation's future. Our light weight believes the Capitalistic system, which has produced wealth for all, favors the rich and needs to be smoothed according to his 'fairness' dictates. He has presided over the worst economic recovery in recent history and has piled debt onto our nation's books without regard to future consequences in furtherance of his wealth transfer scheme. He has attacked his enemies with lies and an uncaring which is unique.
The heavy weight also carries baggage of a divisive and scarring campaign which did nor reflect much favor on himself and/or his opponents but at least he bested them all and came out on top bruised but ready to do battle. He believes in our economic system and has a proven record of making it work.
The two visions and strategies of these fighters is starkly different, their methods of fighting are as well.
The risk of voting for the light weight and finding out what we have is already partly known - that is why he is a light weight. The heavy weight also has a history but the results of his election are mostly conjecture. However, considering where we are and what are our choices Pelosi may have been right. I am willing to find out after voting for the heavy weight because my own stomach is no longer able to retain the 'stuffings' of our light weight's servings!
Wealth may not trickle down as rapidly and evenly as Obama, liberals and other progressives might wish but I can damn well assure you poverty does not trickle up either. It only spreads and transferring wealth to the poor will end in poverty for all.!

CHICAGO BEARS COACH PLAYS RACE CARD FOR OBAMA
"I have the President‘s back and it’s left up to us, as African Americans, to show that we have his back also join African Americans for President Obama today.”
I get a constant stream of e mails and responses to my memos etc. Most I do not publish but thought this was worth it. You decide. (See 2 below.)
Then, cancel the pipeline, which would employ Americans, and bridge the gap by employing Chinese. (See 2a below.)
We also have information about a new Executive Order pertaining to free speech at a meeting/event when Obama is present.
Also, the Constitutional matter of Obama's legitimacy as president and his alleged forged birth certificate is creeping into e mails again and I have no way of knowing whether the alleged claims and/or material presented are accurate or not but am seeking some advice and if I learn anything from a credible source I will post. (See 2b below.)
There is even a video claiming his draft card is forged. I have no way of verifying but have sent to some legal friends and will report back anything that appears credible. (See 2c, 2d and 2e below.)
I do believe the media and press have gone out of their way to keep the matter of Obama's birth certificate hidden from further review and/or analysis but perhaps the pressure is mounting and they are being forced to acknowledge it should be a matter of pubic discourse. Stay tuned. (See 2e and 2f below.)
Finally, Obama's Pizza Czar it at work. Hilarious shades of " Orwell's Big Brother!" (See 3 below.)
And don't forget about Obama's EPA Agency that is also working overtime and I do not mean going to Las Vegas and spending our money to remind us of how efficient our government watchdog agency is but how crippling the EPA is. (See 3a below.)
Judge Napolitano has a viewpoint that is worthy of discussion. (See 4 below.)
Off to Winter Park for a Dagny fix and back later Saturday. Have a great weekend.
1) The Eurozone is larger than the United States, so America's debt per capita
also exceeds the Eurozone's. According to the Census Bureau
of 313 million, whereas the Eurozone has a population in excess of 331 million.
Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney frequently warns the
United States should not become like Greece. "We need to rein in government
and unleash the extraordinary vitality and creativity of the American
Romney wrote in a December op-ed
Greece's or Portugal's to right the ship of state."
But with charts like this, that formulation might already be out of date,
considering the enormity of America's debt burden.
I HOPE THIS WILL PUT A SMILE ON YOUR FACE AND IN YOUR HEART.

2a) Diane Sawyer reporting on U.S. bridge projects going to the Chinese.... NOT Americans.
The bridges are right here in the U.S. and yet Obama has approved for Chinese contractors to come in and do the work. What about jobs for Americans???
This one should be tough for the supporters of the current regime to swallow....AND it comes from ABC NEWS...no Snopes or Wikileaks on this one!
The lead-in with Obama promising jobs in the U.S. by improving our infrastructure is so typical of all his promises! Our tax dollars are at work - for CHINA!!!
Pray all the unemployed see this and cast their votes accordingly in 2012!
Standing is a problem, i.e., who has standing to sue the President or the U.S. based on birth?
The courts would be very reluctant to toss out a President. An elected President would have an enormous PR apparatus at his disposal (plus the Armed Forces). The Court none. It would be a lose-lose proposition for the Supreme's and the lower courts. So they would find some, any, reason to toss a suit.
What evidence is there. His mother was a citizen. If she was on vacation in Canada and gave birth to him prematurely there, would you still contend he cannot be President? He showed a birth certificate from Hawaii. You would have to have incontrovertible evidence, evidence beyond a reasonable doubt, to get this beyond the "nut case test."
Birthers are bipartisan. I remember back in 1964 there was a suit by Democrats against Barry Goldwater because he was born in Arizona when it wasn't yet a state. It got tossed by the courts.
BTW, I fully agreed with your wish list for the U.S. in an earlier message. I am going to print and hang it in my office."
2c)Nothing surprises me anymore with this guy, but what does surprise me is that this bill was overwhelmingly passed by both the House and the Senate. That really scares me. Government truly run amok.
This means that, wherever Obama is at, you do not have a right to ask him anything you want to. His secret service can have you arrested, fined, and imprisoned for more than a YEAR if you ask him something he doesn't like.
2d)"You may be right but this should be, or could be, not a question of his legitimacy of being President only that based on this documentation, if it is proved to be correct, he is not eligible to run for the office of President. I have to assume that some government agency or committee cleared the documents he submitted showing he was born in this country.Obviously those documents did not reflect the correct facts.If these are proven to be correct before the election he should not be allowed to be a candidate.I would think there must be a way to legally compel the president to address this issue once the new evidence is formally given to Holder. In addition there is the urgency of the election so everything must be fast tracked so the vehicle to get this done should be known by competent legal experts.
You may recall Trump has been suggesting for months that the question has not been
resolved.. I would bet that he is aware of this latest evidence and at the right time will.
2d) Buying into conspiracies or not, this certainly makes one go hmmmmm….
