Rlaser focusemember when President Obama claimed he “would not rest” until Americans were back to work?  Remember how he promised a “laser-like focus” on jobs?  Well, it appears Obama has some serious ADD.  According to the latest Government Accountability Institute (GAI) report, Obama has only spent 3.6% of his presidency on the economy and jobs….and that is a conservative estimate.

Here are some other key findings in their report:

  • In 2013, Obama has spent a total of 6 hours in economic meetings.  (Wow…)
  • Obama has spent a total of 474.4 hours in economic meetings throughout his presidency, compared to 976 hours playing golf or on vacation.
  • Between 2009 and 2012, Obama’s time spent in economic meetings decreased by 79%.

Does that sound like laser-like focus to you?  I’m going with No.  And he’s looking pretty darn rested to me.  So our economy must be on obamabiketrack, right?  Again, that would be a No.  Unemployment still stands at 7.6%, with real unemployment around a whopping 14%.  Our national debt is at 16.8 TRILLION and climbing.  The stock market is being artificially inflated by the Federal Reserve, which economists believe is going to lead to an even bigger collapse than we experienced in 2008.  Social  Security is going broke.  Obamacare is a train wreck, costing billions more than anticipated, and is also causing massive losses of jobs or reductions in hours, and causing companies to close their doors.

But these issues appear to be unworthy of Obama’s time.  Instead he’s focusing on gun control (despite the fact the majority of Americans do not support it), promoting Planned Parenthood, and pushing immigration reform…a.k.a. amnesty (which the majority of Americans also do not support).  These are not the biggest issues facing our country.   According to a March Gallup poll, the issues most Americans are concerned with are:  1) economy in general, 2) dissatisfaction with government, 3) unemployment/jobs, and 4) federal budget deficit/debt.  See anything interesting in those answers?  That’s right….Obama isn’t focused on ANY of them.  In fact, he and his Democrat cronies all state that the economy is improving, and in fact, we don’t have a spending problem.  Democrat Whip Steny Hoyer claimed we have a “paying for it” problem.  Yeah, just like Mike Tyson, economyDennis Rodman or MC Hammer had a “paying for it” problem.  Are you kidding me?

It’s clear that Obama isn’t focused on helping the middle class, although he consistently claims to be working to protect them.  In fact, most of his policies will ultimately destroy the middle class.   Obamacare is hitting small business owners the hardest, and middle class workers are losing hours or losing their jobs altogether. Payroll taxes went up 2% this year, despite Obama’s repeated promises of not raising taxes on the middle class “a single dime”.  And let’s not forget the new internet sales tax, which will cost Americans more money, and place a tremendous burden on companies.  And don’t you love the names of these bills?  Note the “Affordable Care Act” and the “Market regulationsFairness  Act”.  Pfft.  What a joke.

Isn’t the President of the United States supposed to represent all Americans?  Aren’t they supposed to look out for the interests of all of us, not just those who agree with his ideology?  Obama doesn’t even attempt to work with the Republican party, or address the concerns of conservatives.  Not only has this president failed to bring Americans together, but he intentionally drives us apart.   The only thing this president has accomplished is to make us weaker as a nation.

duggar-family-1-600x450I was reading an article today on CBSNews.com about the Duggar family.  The oldest Duggar son, Josh, and his wife Anna, are having their 3rd child, and made the comment that they, like Josh’s parents, will welcome as many children as God gives them.   The article was a positive one, but the comments on the article were absolutely jaw-dropping.  I was appalled at the hate coming from the readers regarding that one statement.

Here are just a few examples (others aren’t even fit to print):

“The baby will likely miscarry. It’s only going to get worse, and can’t they adopt and spare the mother needless risks for herself and the (hopefully makes it out alive and with no birth defects-addled) baby?:

“how much are we subsidizing this? more kids=more tax breaks=more money shoveled from those without children to people like this who won’t keep their hands out of my pockets. why should we pay for their private decisions?”

“They find more value in impregnating her until babies miscarry and/or she dies than anything else.”

“When is the next litter coming?”

“Obscene family. The more babies a woman has, the greater the risk – especially – as she gets older – for her body, and for the baby developing.  That’s not beautiful, that’s selfish and sick.”

Why are people so hateful?  What did the Duggar’s ever do to anyone?  They’re having a child, and they’re selfish, sick and obscene?  I do not understand this mindset.   Children are a joy and a gift from God.  Since when is it selfish and sick to want more than one child?

stethoscope-on-moneyI don’t hear those on the left speaking out against women on the public dole having one child after another.  I don’t see outrage from the left on the fact that 40% of children in the U.S. are born to a single parent.  Josh and Anna are 2 loving parents, raising their children to be good, law abiding, hard-working, responsible, Christian adults, and they’re the ones who are sick?  But having 6 children with multiple  fathers who are absent, and being solely dependent on the government to take care of the children is a situation that deserves our sympathy and hard-earned tax dollars?

The fact is this hate, in large part, is directed at the fact that the Duggars are Christians.  If it were Beyonce and Jay-Z having their 3rd child, would you hear the same outrage?   Do you hear anyone blasting Kris Kardashian for having 6 children?  The Duggars were slammed because they talked about God giving them their children.   The left apparently doesn’t believe those blessings come from God.

The left always claims that the government should stay out of the bedroom.  Yet they want the government to force businesses to provide free birth-control.  They want the government to force taxpayers to fund abortion clinics.  They push sex education in school at younger and younger ages.  Am I missing something?  That sure sounds like government in the bedroom to me.  And now they have a problem with a wholesome, hard-working family having 3 children?  Are child limits going to be their next mission?

Remember when President Clinton said he wanted abortions to be safe, legal and rare?  Well, someone didn’t get the message.  The left not only condones abortion, they promote it.  Who promotes MURDER?  Of course, it’s endorsed under the cover of “reproductive rights”, but endorsed nonetheless.

Dr. Kermit Gosnell is currently on trial for the murder of one adult patient and seven babies.  He not only murdered unborn babies, he murdered babies born as the result of a botched abortion….by snipping their spines with scissors!  Do you think those babies didn’t feel that pain??  And yet, not a word from the liberal media.  Those babies were slaughtered and nothing but silence from the left.  What is wrong with these people?

If they have so little regard for the murder of innocent babies, the most fragile among us, where do they draw the line?  Is it the elderly next?  The physically disabled?  The mentally disabled?   We already see medical reimbursement rates being cut, insurance premiums going up, and coverage lowered or dropped.  Doctors are leaving the practice, which will result in rationing of care.  Refusing to cover certain treatments for the elderly could be just around the corner, in order to save money.  Obama caused a controversy in 2010, when he answered a question at a town hall meeting, stating that an elderly woman (105), who received a pacemaker, possibly should have received a pill instead of surgery, based solely on her advanced age.  America, welcome to death panels.

Bottom line….if we as a nation, have lost all respect for life, our society is doomed.
