The Failure of Obama Economics…..


You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich.

You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong.

You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift.

You cannot lift the wage earner up by pulling the wage payer down.

You cannot further the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatred.

You cannot build character and courage by taking away people’s initiative and independence.

You cannot help people permanently by doing for them, what they could and should do for themselves.”

              …………Abraham Lincoln

 

“Any man who thinks he can be happy and prosperous by letting the government take care of him had better take a closer look at the American Indian.” – Henry Ford

What do the top ten cities (over 250,000) with the highest poverty rate

all have in common?

Detroit, MI (1st on the poverty rate list) hasn’t elected a Republican mayor since 1961

Buffalo, NY (2nd) hasn’t elected one since 1954

Cincinnati, OH – (3rd) since 1984

Cleveland, OH – (4th) since 1989

Einstein once said, ‘The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again

and expecting different results.’

It is the poor who habitually elect Democrats……. yet they are still POOR.

Obama begins second term facing pessimistic public….


As President Barack Obama heads into his second term, he faces a pessimistic and weary public, according to a USA Today/Gallup poll released late Tuesday.
The percentage of Americans satisfied with the direction of the country stands at a paltry 23 percent in a poll taken Dec. 14-17. By a margin of 50 to 47 percent, respondents said the country’s best years are over.
Fifty percent of respondents said it is somewhat or very unlikely that today’s youth will have a better life than their parents.
That pessimism and negativity extends to the president, according to the poll

No smiling – you’re in New Jersey…….



==========================================================================================
A ban on smiling in driver’s license photos in New Jersey is being frowned upon by the state’s voters.
More than six in 10 New Jersey voters – male and female, rich and poor, young and old, Republican and Democrat – think the ban is a bad idea, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released on Thursday.
The state Motor Vehicle Commission has been cracking down on people making overly expressive facial expressions, saying some smiles can interfere with facial recognition software used to verify a person’s identity.
Elyse Coffey, a commission spokeswoman told ABC News last month the commission is simply requesting that drivers refrain from smiling “as if you’ve just won $5 million in the lottery”.
Just 17 percent of New Jersey voters agree they should be blocked from showing off their pearly whites.
The survey of 1,405 registered voters was conducted from October 10 to October 14 and had a margin of error of plus or minus 2.6 percentage points.
