  1. Syrian Islamist Rebels Vows to Conquer Israel And Europe After The Assad Regime Falls…

    Obama’s successful foreign policy: ignition of Sunni/Shiite blood letting. Prepare for the M.E. to blow up and oil prices right along with them. Obama wanted European price levels for gasoline, he’ll get them.

  2. Obama 2011: We can get $1.2 trillion in revenues without raising tax rates

    This video of Obama in 2011 is making the rounds online. In it he argues that up to $1.2 trillion in revenues could be raised by closing loopholes and limiting deductions in the tax code. More importantly, he signals that it can all be done without raising tax rates.

    Have I made my case yet?

  3. #2, That bit of hypocrisy is another example showing that Obama does not care about high deficits and bad economies, only about transforming America.

    If Obama is planning to make people be productive by chasing money that has been severely devalued than he is going about it the wrong way as all these tax increases and closing of “loopholes” (which for Obama and the like really means legitimate deductions) will drive off the productive long before he does anything. In fact, it has already been going on since his regime started, if not quite as fast as recent.
