I have been called on the carpet by a writer for not showing respect for some people in certain offices. I guess my old-fashioned idea is that one must earn respect.
Thus I cannot bow and scrape before people who are spending us into bankruptcy. So, that leads to the next item on my plate: the national elections that will be with us shortly.
Mr. Obama has quite a record to run on. He has been in office almost four years and here are some of his accomplishments:
1. Economic growth under 2 percent.
2. Unemployment and underemployment at 14.7 percent.
3. Four yearly budget deficits of over $1 trillion.
4. Declining medium income that is 8 percent lower than in 2007.
5. Home foreclosures grew this summer by 16 percent.
6. He has spent almost $100 billion on so-called green energy businesses that are mostly in bankruptcy.
This is enough about Mr. Obama's sterling accomplishments. Also, he has shown a disdain for our Constitution. He used our military to overthrow the dictator of Libya without getting the consent of Congress. He ignored the First Amendment by forcing Catholics and other faith-based institutions to violate their beliefs. He has directed his Attorney General Holder to ignore the Defense of Marriage Act.
One last item is when Mr. Holder threw out the case of the New Black Panther members who were intimidating Philadelphia voters in the 2008 election.
I will end with a bit on the Obamacare law that was called a tax by Chief Justice Roberts. Our Constitution requires that any tax bill has to begin in the House of Representatives. But the bill was begun in the Senate under Mr. Reid and does not pass muster. From Article 1, Section 7, "All bills for raising revenue shall originate in the House of Representatives."
