Welcome to the American Revolution II

Welcome to the American Revolution II
But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such government, and to provide new guards for their future security.
"We face a hostile ideology global in scope, atheistic in character, ruthless in purpose and insidious in method..." and warned about what he saw as unjustified government spending proposals and continued with a warning that "we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military-industrial complex... The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist... Only an alert and knowledgeable citizenry can compel the proper meshing of the huge industrial and military machinery of defense with our peaceful methods and goals, so that security and liberty may prosper together."Dwight D.

Obama Oil and OPEC

During the Bush administration's gas crisis of 2007-08, Obama claimed that the only problem with higher gas prices was that they went up too fast, that he would have preferred a more gradual increase.

Yet gas prices have doubled since Obama took office.

The Mideast is in flames, food prices have spiked, the dollar could collapse if the deficit is not soon brought under control, and inflation is starting to creep up.

The buck stops with the president. So, Mr. President, put the golf clubs away, ground the presidential aircraft and end the vacations. Get back to work.

Why are the Democrats in Congress not complaining about the rising cost of gasoline and food? Could it be because we have a Democrat in the White House?

Where is Schumer, who under the Bush administration was screaming loudly at the president and demanding that the oil companies be investigated for price-fixing?

Cat got yer tongue, Chuck?

When I read that President Obama was taking the "bold" step of forming a task force to study the issue of astronomical and ever-increasing gas prices, I thought it was a joke -- they must be quaking in fear at OPEC ("Obama: New Task Force Will Examine Gas Prices," April 22).

But then I knew he was serious. Diane Sawyer of ABC News said the president was getting tough on this issue. Somehow, she said this out loud without laughing.

Why is it that when gas prices went up under President George W. Bush, everyone was blaming him?

Didn't they say it was so he could make his oil buddies richer?

Does the current president not have friends in the oil industry? We've always been led to believe that the oil industry only supports Republicans.

This is yet another example of how our current president takes no responsibility for anything that goes wrong in this country.

All he is good at is spending money we don't have and apologizing for everything good this country has done.

November 2012 can't get here fast enough
