Banking on Bankers……

Even though the bailout for the big “banks”, i.e. financial conglomerates like CITI, were funded entirely by other banks, NOT the taxpayer, Democrats continue to use banks as their ultimate scapegoat.  As a small community bank, we did NOT cause the problem, but we ended up paying for it with higher FDIC insurance premiums and additional charges to “fund” the bailout.

Democrats don’t care.  They have found someone they can blame and hold hostage and they intend to beat the horse, even if it’s dead.  Hence the $19 billion tax they want to levy on ALL banks.  This is going to further hinder small community banks, the foundation of the American financial system, from providing funds to some customers.

It isn’t a good solution.  But, as I said before , Democrats don’t care.

They are banking on Bankers!

A Hanging Offense….

Prince Charles, the idiot who is the heir apparent to the English throne — and, no wonder they’re going down the tubes — believes that Islamic principles should guide our world.

Prince Charles yesterday urged the world to follow Islamic ‘spiritual principles’ in order to protect the environment. In an hour-long speech, the heir to the throne argued that man’s destruction of the world was contrary to the scriptures of all religions – but particularly those of Islam.

He said the current ‘division’ between man and nature had been caused not just by industrialisation, but also by our attitude to the environment – which goes against the grain of ‘sacred traditions’.

I have never understood why, all of a sudden, Islam and Muslims are the creme de la creme in today’s PC world.  After all, all the terrorists of late have their grounding in radical Islam.  All of the terrorists profess hatred of America, women, and a whole host of other people, places and things.  Now, apparently, they also hate little 7 year olds.

The Enemy at the Gates………

It’s good to see that people are finally writing and revealing the fantasy that President Obama is a uniter of Americans!  This was false from the beginning; but people clung to that ideal, even as more and more went wrong with America’s economy, standing in the world, and our military preparedness.  Even when President Obama bowed to foreign heads of state and further demeaned the Presidency of the United States, excuses, justifications and rationals continued to emerge.  The Lieberal media were bent on explaining away every faux pas of Obama.  They obfuscated and actually refused to report on stories that reflected badly on him.

Even the Lieberal media is beginning to admit that the enemy at America’s gates is none other than our own President.  Obama  has derided America here and abroad…derided America’s generosity….derided previous generations of Americans who died to save other countries.

This can’t be the change that voters so enthusiastically supported.  Why would a U.S. President hate the very country that he purportedly represents?

Why?  Because, as Ms Rabinowitz explains, President Obama essentially doesn’t like America nor American ideals.  And, he is hell bent on changing America’s course so far to the left that we will eventually keel over…into socialism.  Or worse, other countries will continue to expand their economies and weaponry, at our expense, until we can no longer defend ourselves.

The Alien in the White House

The distance between the president and the people is beginning to be revealed.


The deepening notes of disenchantment with Barack Obama now issuing from commentators across the political spectrum were predictable. So, too, were the charges from some of the president’s earliest enthusiasts about his failure to reflect a powerful sense of urgency about the oil spill.

There should have been nothing puzzling about his response to anyone who has paid even modest critical attention to Mr. Obama’s pronouncements. For it was clear from the first that this president—single-minded, ever-visible, confident in his program for a reformed America saved from darkness by his arrival—was wanting in certain qualities citizens have until now taken for granted in their presidents. Namely, a tone and presence that said: This is the Americans’ leader, a man of them, for them, the nation’s voice and champion. Mr. Obama wasn’t lacking in concern about the oil spill. What he lacked was that voice—and for good reason.

Those qualities to be expected in a president were never about rhetoric; Mr. Obama had proved himself a dab hand at that on the campaign trail. They were a matter of identification with the nation and to all that binds its people together in pride and allegiance. These are feelings held deep in American hearts, unvoiced mostly, but unmistakably there and not only on the Fourth of July.

A great part of America now understands that this president’s sense of identification lies elsewhere, and is in profound ways unlike theirs. He is hard put to sound convincingly like the leader of the nation, because he is, at heart and by instinct, the voice mainly of his ideological class. He is the alien in the White House, a matter having nothing to do with delusions about his birthplace cherished by the demented fringe.

Obama’s MAD!!!!

Obama told King he was furious that “someone didn’t think through the consequences of their actions,” and he tried to deflect criticism that he hasn’t shown enough emotion about the epic dimensions of the problem.

Oh, my!  President Obama’s MAD that the oil spill hasn’t stopped.   And even his touted personality hasn’t made any difference to the oil spilling out of the earth into the Gulf waters.

What to do?  What to do?

This is the problem when an inexperienced person is elected to the presidency.  He was a great candidate and convinced practically every single black person to vote for him, and a lot of Lieberals, and even many independents.  But, now, this crisis needs more than just talk and charisma.  Berating BP and telling the media how mad he is just won’t cap that oil leak.  Sadly, President Obama never was ready for the presidency and its crises, nor is he ready to understand that talk is still as cheap and useless as ever.

So, Obama’s mad.  Mad that he has a problem that is destroying his popularity among American voters.  He’s mad that someone can’t just fix the problem so Americans again laud the “great” Obama.

Well, here’s a news flash.  I’m mad, too.  I’m mad that Obama hasn’t a clue how to stop the oil slick from spreading.  I’m mad that he has used power plays and tactics that have created a national deficit for our grandchildren.  I’m mad that he tried to use the power of the presidency to sway elections in New York, Pennsylvania and now, Colorado.  I’m mad that he doesn’t understand that more taxation will cause MORE job losses!

And, if other Americans like me are mad now, just wait until election day!  Then, I hope Obama will be really MAD!
