Just take this last item: In the last two years we have accumulated national debt at a rate more than 27 times as fast as during the rest of our entire nation's history.
Over 27 times as fast. Metaphorically speaking, if you are driving in the right lane doing 65 MPH and a car rockets past you in the left lane.
27 times faster, it would be doing 7,555 MPH!

So, tell me again, what is it about Obama that makes him so brilliant and impressive? Can't think of anything? Don't worry. He's done all this in 29 months -- so you'll have eleven months to come up with an answer. Every statement in this email is factual and directly attributable to Barrack Hussein Obama. Every bumble is a matter of record and completely verifiable.



EVERYONE SHOULD READ THIS...


I WONDER HOW MANY WILL FORWARD THIS ?

Bill Cosby “I’m 83 and Tired”



html_removed

Bill Cosby “I’m 83 and Tired”

  “I’m 83 and Tired” Worth reading…..




This should be required reading for every man, woman and child in Jamaica,

the UK , United States of America, Canada, Australia and New Zealand and
to all the world…

“I’m 83 and I’m Tired”


I’m 83
.
Except for brief period in the 50′s when I was doing my National
Service, I’ve worked hardsince I was 17. Except for some some serious
health challenges, I put in 50-hour weeks, and didn’t call in sick in nearly
40 years. I made a reasonable salary, but I didn’t inherit my job or my
income, and I worked to get where I am. Given the economy, it looks as
though retirement was a bad idea, and I’m tired. Very tired. 

I’m tired
of being told that I have to “spread the wealth” to people who
don’t have my work ethic. I’m tired of being told the government will take
the money I earned, by force if necessary, and give it to people too lazy
to earn it.
 
I’m tired
of being told I must lower my living standard to fight global
warming, which no one is allowed to debate.

I’m tired
of being told that drug addicts have a disease, and I must help
support and treat them, and pay for the damage they do. Did a giant germ
rush out of a dark alley, grab them, and stuff white powder up their noses
or stick a needle in their arm while they tried to fight it off?

I’m tired
of hearing wealthy athletes, entertainers and politicians of all
parties talking about innocent mistakes, stupid mistakes or youthful
mistakes, when we all know they think their only mistake was getting
caught. I’m tired of people with a sense of entitlement, rich or poor.  

I’m really tired
of people who don’t take responsibility for their lives and
actions. I’m tired of hearing them blame the government, or discrimination
or big-whatever for their problems.


I’m also tired and fed up with seeing young men and women in their teens and
early 20′s be-deck them selves in tattoos and face studs, thereby making
themselves un-employable and claiming money from the Government.

Yes, I’m damn tired.
But I’m also glad to be 83.. Because, mostly, I’m not
going to have to see the world these people are making.. I’m just sorry for
my granddaughter and her children.   Thank God I’m on the way out and not
on the way in.

Garf!  How VERY true, I am afraid...


Three of the four are clowns. 


The fourth is telling hard and unpleasant truths.


I am sad to say that a MAJORITY of of even our staunchest Republican members are of such an "entitlement" mentality, that even Ron Paul, a strict Constititutionalist, will drive them into the arms of the socialist Dems...
