They Get The Goldmine, We Get The Shaft

by lewwaters

California has long been known as the “Golden State,” noted for the Gold Rush Days of the mid-1800’s with that nickname being officially adopted in 1968. For many years, California was seen as one of the wealthiest states and the destination of many seeking to make their fortune in the world along with several International Businesses that located there.

But California’s leaders just like our leaders in Washington D.C. lost track somewhere along the line as both that state and the nation now each hold the largest debt in our history, California’s exceeding $300 Billion and the United States exceeding $16 Trillion with both still climbing.

We have gone from the wealthiest land to the deepest in debt on the planet, with money owed to just about every other developed nation, large bank, insurance companies and Wall Street as politicians continue selling us down the river towards collapse.

Brits Look to America and See Hopelessness and the Wrong Change

by lewwaters

Obama, after snubbing and slapping at our British friends since gaining office, has received a well deserved comeuppance in the British Press recently.

What happened to the Barack Obama dream?

“Despite a string of legislative successes, Mr Obama has failed to make voters believe that he has helped them, or that he cares more about their jobs and savings than about a long-standing Democratic agenda of health care and enforcing greener energy use on industry. Although he has passed major financial reforms, his economic team has been deemed too close to Wall Street and too protective of the mega-bonus culture.”
“There is a view that the elation of becoming the first black president and the euphoria that accompanied his inauguration helped create a degree of arrogance in the White House that has led the President and his advisers to blame the media, or Republicans, for what the electorate is really thinking.”

The “dream” turned out to be a nightmare for America.

Barack Obama: the Great Unravelling of a One-Term President?

“The president can’t stop blaming George W Bush for anything that goes wrong but it will be the current rather than the former president who Democrats will take to task after November.”
“Obama scarcely helped himself this week when he responded in a CNBC “town hall” event to a black woman who said she was ‘exhausted of defending you’ by prefacing his answer with ‘as I said before’ – code for ‘you’re clearly too dumb to have understood me the first time’.”

November, the restoration of a Free America begins.
