Treasury Reports National Debt Has Increased $4 Trillion Under Obama…

 

“It’s Bush’s fault”.

(CBS News) — The latest posting by the Treasury Department shows the national debt has now increased $4 trillion on President Obama’s watch.

The debt was $10.626 trillion on the day Mr. Obama took office. The latest calculation from Treasury shows the debt has now hit $14.639 trillion.

It’s the most rapid increase in the debt under any U.S. president.

The national debt increased $4.9 trillion during the eight-year presidency of George W. Bush. The debt now is rising at a pace to surpass that amount during Mr. Obama’s four-year term.

Mr. Obama blames policies inherited from his predecessor’s administration for the soaring debt. He singles out:

“two wars we didn’t pay for”
“a prescription drug program for seniors . . . we didn’t pay for.”
“tax cuts in 2001 and 2003 that were not paid for.”

He goes on to blame the recession, and its resulting decrease in tax revenue on businesses, for making fewer sales, and more employees being laid off. He says the recession also resulted in more government spending due to increased unemployment insurance payments, subsidies to farms and funding of infrastructure programs that were part of his stimulus program.

THE TIME IS LONG PAST ALLOWING THESE VERMIN TO PROCREATE

From the UK, premier socialist hot-bed for those not wanting to work but to suck the teat of government, comes this story of a 29 year old punk who is proud that his daughter, 14 years old, made him a grandfather.

Proud British granddad Shem Davies is not even 30 yet and his 14-year-old daughter Tia already has a child! Shem had Tia when he was only 15, setting the stage for his daughter to follow in his footsteps. When Shem, who happens to be unemployed at the moment, showed up to the hospital, the staff thought he was the father instead of the grandfather.

This piece of shiite does not work
, his daughter does not work and her boyfriend does not work.
From a story written back in February this year:

Neighbours branded the man a ‘lazy scrounger’ as it was claimed he contacted several media organisations before selling his family’s story to a Sunday newspaper for a five-figure sum.

His schoolgirl daughter, who is pregnant by her 15-year-old boyfriend of a few months, is due to give birth in August, and announced the news on her ­Facebook page, writing that she was ‘looking for a pram with the mr’.

Yesterday the teenager’s father said: ‘It’s quite mad. I’m about to be a grandad. I was 14 when my daughter was born, and now she’s having a baby.

‘She is very young, but she was determined to keep the child. We were not going to force her into doing anything else. We don’t want her to hate us.’

Because of their age, the identity of the two teenagers, who attend the same comprehensive school in South Wales, is currently protected.

In a depressing portrait of Broken Britain, the unemployed grandfather-to-be does not live with his daughter or her mother, a cafe worker who has two other children and lives with another unemployed man on a housing estate.

Her current partner claimed the girl’s father had ‘not contributed a penny to his daughter’s upbringing’.

So not only are they sucking off the system, they are draining the health care system by having babies that are born underweight and premature:

WHY GOVERNMENT IS OUT OF CONTROL

In another example of how government gives out money in order to control the people, here’s a story about the phenomenal growth of Social Security payments to millions of Americans.
It’s gotten to the point where someone with a hangnail can request SSI.
And we wonder why we’re broke?

He IS A Flake!

Youve got to love this! If you dont think that the fix is in with the lame stream media then youve got your head in the sand (or worse). Imagine if Bush had done this. Remember what they did to Dan Quayle when he misspelled potato? Misspelling potato comes nowhere near what this chump-in-chief does regularly without his teleprompter!

ANOTHER REASON TO HATE, DETEST, LOATHE AND DESPISE FACEBOOK

Seen where they removed a comment made by Arizona Governor Jan Brewer on illegal immigration?
I could understand removal of offensive comments that incited hatred, violence and death by some wannabe crackpot.

But a sitting governor?

And who says Obama doesn’t have his secret police at the NSA trolling the web for comments critical of them and then use the power and force of the government to shut it down?

At least Brewer wasted no time putting it back up.
Facebook said Friday it mistakenly removed a post in which Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer criticized a controversial policy decision by President Barack Obama’s administration to limit deportations of illegal immigrants.

The Republican governor had said in a post Friday that Facebook censored the item she posted Thursday because it apparently violated Facebook’s community standards.
Brewer didn’t elaborate in her post, but she said Friday in an interview that an email she received from Facebook said the post was removed because of an included illustration.

The email, which she read aloud, didn’t specify how the illustration violated standards.
“I’d like to know why it happens,” she said of the removal.

Facebook spokesman Andrew Noyes responded to a query by The Associated Press by saying in a brief email that Brewer’s post was removed in error and that Facebook was sorry.

Noyes did not provide further details, including whether the removal of the post on Thursday resulted from complaints received from other Facebook users.

Brewer reposted the item Friday, saying the original post was “censored” by Facebook. Both versions included a statement in which she criticized the Obama policy decision and the illustration, a color drawing of Brewer in a Rosie the Riveter pose.

Brewer used the drawing in her 2010 election campaign. Its headline of “doing the job the feds won’t do” refers to Brewer’s clashes with Obama’s administration on immigration and border issues.
“Something that’s been posted on there a lot of times,” Brewer said of the illustration during the interview.

Obama’s administration said Thursday it would allow many illegal immigrants facing deportation the chance to stay in the United States and apply for a work permit. Deportations would focus on convicted criminals and those who might be threats to national security or public safety, the administration said.

“I think many of you will agree with me – Obama’s backdoor amnesty plan violates American standards of following the rule of law and the U.S. Constitution,” Brewer’s latest post said.

THE REAL PROBLEM WITH OUR GOVERNMENTAL SYSTEM – – – –

The folks who are getting free shit, don’t like the folks who are paying for the free shit, because the folks who are paying for the free shit, can no longer afford to pay for both the free shit and their own shit.

And,the folks who are paying for the free shit, want the free shit to stop, and the folks who are getting the free shit, want even MORE free shit on top of the free shit they’re already getting!

Now….. The people who are forcing the people who PAY for the free shit, have told the people who are RECEIVING the free shit, that the people who are PAYING for the free shit are being mean, prejudiced, and racist.

So …. the people who are GETTING the free shit, have been convinced they need to HATE the people who are PAYING for the free shit by the people who are forcing the people who PAY for the free shit and GIVE them the free shit in the first place.

NOW, do you understand?

“The Last Six Seconds”

Thank God for the United States Marine Corps.

Semper Fi

The following account makes us proud of America ’s national treasure that is the United States Marine Corps …

One can hardly conceive of the enormous grief held quietly within
General Kelly as he spoke.

On Nov 13, 2010, Lt General John Kelly, USMC, gave a speech to the
Semper Fi Society of  St. Louis, MO.   This was four days after his son,
Lt Robert Kelly, USMC, was killed by an IED while on his 3rd Combat
tour.  During his speech, General Kelly spoke about the dedication
and valor of our young men and women who step forward each and
every day to protect us.

During the speech, he never mentioned the loss of his own son.   He
closed the speech with the moving account of the last six seconds in
the lives of two young Marines who died with rifles blazing to protect
their brother Marines.

“I will leave you with a story about the kind of people they are,
about the quality of the steel in their backs, about the kind of
dedication they bring to our country while they serve in uniform and
forever after as veterans.  Two years ago when I was the Commander
of all U.S. and Iraqi forces, in fact, the 22nd of April 2008, two Marine infantry
battalions, 1/9 “The Walking Dead,” and 2/8 were switching out in
Ramadi.  One battalion in the closing days of their deployment going
home very soon, the other just starting its seven-month combat tour.  Two
Marines, Corporal Jonathan Yale and Lance Corporal Jordan Haerter,
22 and 20 years old respectively, one from each battalion, were
assuming the watch together at the entrance gate of an outpost
that contained a makeshift barracks housing 50 Marines.  The same
broken down ramshackle building was also home to 100 Iraqi police,
also my men and our allies in the fight against the terrorists in
Ramadi, a city until recently the most dangerous city on earth and
owned by Al Qaeda.
Yale was a dirt poor mixed-race kid from Virginia with a wife and
daughter, and a mother and sister who lived with him and whom he
supported as well.  He did this on a yearly salary of less than $23,000.
Haerter, on the other hand, was a middle class white kid from Long
Island.  They were from two completely different worlds.  Had they
not joined the Marines they would never have met each other, or
understood that multiple  America’s exist simultaneously depending
on one’s race, education level, economic status, and where you might
have been born.  But they were Marines, combat Marines, forged in
the same crucible of Marine training, and because of this bond they
were brothers as close, or closer, than if they were born of the same
woman.

The mission orders they received from the sergeant squad leader I
am sure went something like, “Okay you two clowns, stand this post
and let no unauthorized personnel or vehicles pass.  You clear?”
I am also sure Yale and Haerter then rolled their eyes and said in
unison something like, “Yes Sergeant,” with just enough attitude
that made the point without saying the words, “No kidding
‘sweetheart’, we know what we’re doing.”  They then relieved two
other Marines on watch and took up their post at the entry control
point of Joint Security Station Nasser, in the Sophia section of
Ramadi, Al Anbar, Iraq.

A few minutes later a large blue truck turned down the alley
way – perhaps 60-70 yards in length, and sped its way through the
serpentine of concrete jersey walls.  The truck stopped just short of
where the two were posted and detonated, killing them both
catastrophically.  Twenty-four brick masonry houses were damaged
or destroyed.  A mosque 100 yards away collapsed.  The truck’s engine
came to rest two hundred yards away knocking most of a house
down before it stopped.  Our explosive experts reckoned the blast
was made of 2,000 pounds of explosives.  Two died, and because
these two young infantrymen didn’t have it in their DNA to run from
danger, they saved 150 of their Iraqi and American brothers-in-arms.

When I read the situation report about the incident a few hours after
it happened I called the regimental commander for details as
something about this struck me as different.  Marines dying or being
seriously wounded is commonplace in combat.  We expect Marines
regardless of rank or MOS to stand their ground and do their duty,
and even die in the process, if that is what the mission takes.  But
this just seemed different.  The regimental commander had just
returned from the site and he agreed, but reported that there were
no American witnesses to the event – just Iraqi police.  I figured if
there was any chance of finding out what actually happened and
then to decorate the two Marines to acknowledge their bravery, I’d
have to do it as a combat award that requires two eye-witnesses
and we figured the bureaucrats back in Washington would never buy
Iraqi statements.   If it had any chance at all, it had to come under
the signature of a general officer.

I traveled to Ramadi the next day and spoke individually to a
half-dozen Iraqi police all of whom told the same story.  The blue
truck turned down into the alley and immediately sped up as it made
its way through the serpentine.  They all said, “We knew immediately
what was going on as soon as the two Marines began firing.”  The
Iraqi police then related that some of them also fired, and then to a
man, ran for safety just prior to the explosion.  All survived.  Many were
injured, some seriously.  One of the Iraqis elaborated and with tears
welling up said, “They’d run like any normal man would to save his
life.”  “What he didn’t know until then,” he said, “And what he learned
that very instant, was that Marines are not normal.”  Choking past
the emotion he said, “Sir, in the name of God no sane man would
have stood there and done what they did.”  “No sane man.”  “They
saved us all.”

What we didn’t know at the time, and only learned a couple of days
later after I wrote a summary and submitted both Yale and Haerter
for posthumous Navy Crosses, was that one of our security cameras,
damaged initially in the blast, recorded some of the suicide attack.  It
happened exactly as the Iraqis had described it.  It took exactly six
seconds from when the truck entered the alley until it detonated.

You can watch the last six seconds of their young lives.  Putting
myself in their heads I supposed it took about a second for the two
Marines to separately come to the same conclusion about what was
going on once the truck came into their view at the far end of the
alley.  Exactly no time to talk it over, or call the sergeant to ask what
they should do.  Only enough time to take half an instant and think
about what the sergeant told them to do only a few minutes before,
“Let no unauthorized personnel or vehicles pass.”  The two Marines
had about five seconds left to live.

It took maybe another two seconds for them to present their weapons,
take aim, and open up.  By this time the truck was half-way through the
barriers and gaining speed the whole time.  Here, the recording shows a
number of Iraqi police, some of whom had fired their AKs, now scattering
like the normal and rational men they were – some running right past the
Marines.  They had three seconds left to live.

For about two seconds more, the recording shows the Marines’ weapons
firing non-stop the truck’s windshield exploding into shards of glass as
their rounds take it apart and tore in to the body of the ( I deleted)
who is trying to get past them to kill their brothers – American and
Iraqi-bedded down in the barracks totally unaware of the fact that their
lives at that moment depended entirely on two Marines standing their
ground.

If they had been aware, they would have known they were safe because
two Marines stood between them and a crazed suicide bomber.  The
recording shows the truck careening to a stop immediately in front of
the two Marines.  In all of the instantaneous violence Yale and Haerter
never hesitated.  By all reports and by the recording, they never stepped
back.  They never even started to step aside.  They never even shifted
their weight.  With their feet spread shoulder width apart, they leaned
into the danger, firing as fast as they could work their weapons.  They had
only one second left to live.

The truck explodes.  The camera goes blank.  Two young men go to
their God.  Six seconds.  Not enough time to think about their
families, their country, their flag, or about their lives or their deaths,
but more than enough time for two very brave young men to do their
duty into eternity.  That is the kind of people who are on watch all
over the world tonight – for you.

We Marines believe that God gave America the greatest gift he could
bestow to man while he lived on this earth – freedom.  We also believe
he gave us another gift nearly as precious – our soldiers, sailors,
airmen, U S Customs and Border Patrol, Coast Guardsmen, and Marines – to safeguard that gift
and guarantee no force on this earth can ever steal it away.

It has been my distinct honor to have been with you here today.  Rest
assured our America , this experiment in democracy started over
two centuries ago, will forever remain the “land of the free and home
of the brave” so long as we never run out of tough young Americans
who are willing to look beyond their own self-interest and
comfortable lives, and go into the darkest and most dangerous
places on earth to hunt down, and kill, those who would do us harm.

Flashback: July 25, 2011, “I swore an oath to uphold the laws on the books. . . I know some people want me to bypass Congress and change the laws on my own — that’s not how our system works”

24 days later he announced de facto amnesty for illegal immigrants.
