The Business Of Being President

"Good design can't fix broken business models." ~ Jeffrey Veen

Barack Hussein Obama recently made a comment that made me so angry, I had to wait until now to write a commentary. Now that I've calmed down somewhat, I will comment.

I was watching a report on TV about Obama stumping for Martha Coakley in Massachusetts, when the news program played a clip of Obama announcing his plan to charge a fee to banks and institutions who are giving millions of dollars of bonuses to their executives.

I had to google it to find it, and I confess, what I found isn't exactly what I heard, but it is essentially the same thing. This is from FOX news' website,

...Obama, striking an emphatic and populist tone, said Thursday that he is determined to recoup every dollar spent from the $700 billion Troubled Asset Relief Program to rescue Wall Street firms with a new tax on the largest banks.

"We want our money back and we're going to get it," he said.

Obama described bank bonuses as "obscene" and said the new tax would cover a projected $117 billion shortfall in the government's financial crisis bailout fund.

Upon hearing the report, I gasped in amazement.

Isn't Obama Harvard educated?

Is he not considered by Democrats to be something of a genius?

He's the (illegally) duly elected President of the United States, is he not?

Doesn't attaining the office of President of the United States imply he has at least as much intelligence as a fifth grader?

Then why doesn't he understand simple arithmetic?

Why does he not understand basic business principles?

I am not a businessman, but even I understand businesses compensate for loss of profits by raising prices on goods and services.

How does Obama's ambitious plan affect business?

Look. It's simple:

If Obama charges a fee or a tax to the corporations who pay "obscene" bonuses, the companies will simply raise their prices on goods and services. If, as he says, he only charges banks new taxes or fees, they will pass the loss in profit onto their customers in the form of higher fees and prices.

Those customers include every business that every one of us does business with on a daily basis.

Grocery stores, Department stores, Home improvement companies--name one.

Name any.

Name them all.

They all do business with banks.

And what happens if banks pass their expenses on to their customers? Well, naturally, they pass their expenses on to us.

The consumers.

They also lay off employees because they can no longer afford to pay them.

Let's see now. How does Obama's plan of charging more fees or taxes to banks create his promised hope?

How does it create change?

I hope he doesn't.

It's Change for the worse.

Good God!

Is he stupid or does he just think we are?


It Aint Over Yet

"In these matters the only certainty is that nothing is certain." ~ Pliny the Elder

Just when Harry Reid has us convinced he is a total moron, he does or says something that indicates he is diabolically clever.

Shortly after receiving the news of Republican Scott Brown's election to the U.S. Senate in Massachusetts, Reid magnanimously announced Senator-elect Brown will be seated, "as soon as the proper paperwork has been received."


Aye, there's the rub.

There has been some speculation that the Senate will attempt to push the Obamacare bill through with some obscure ruling that somehow bypasses getting the approval of the House of Representatives. I'm not exactly sure what the procedure is, but that's what I've been told. That could be done quickly, before the "proper papers" can be received.

And Harry Reid knows it.

Another way (and the most obvious) Reid and Pelosi and the rest of the gang of Obama thugs can pass Obama care without allowing Brown to vote would be to delay the processing of the "proper papers" until after the vote.

We all know how long it takes the government to produce needed paperwork depending on it's importance.

There is most likely a myriad of ways Harry and the gang can sneak Obamacare into law without relying on Scott Brown's vote.

Don't count Obamacare out yet.

Don't assume the worst is over.

Don't think the Democrats have lost yet. There are likely many more aces up their sleeves.

Harry (and Obamacare) won't go down that easily.

This fight will not be won until we can vote that gang of crooks out of office.

A Flashback

>> Sunday, January 17, 2010

"Never let a serious crisis go to waste. What I mean by that is it's an opportunity to do things you couldn't do before." ~ Rahm Emanuel

While perusing the media coverage of the devastating earthquake that hit Haiti, I had a flashback.

Does anyone remember a storm that hit New Orleans, Louisiana a couple of years ago?

In the aftermath of that storm, fingers were pointed. Blame was assigned. Remember?

It was George W. Bush's fault. It was FEMA's fault. I seem to remember Reverend (and I use the term loosely) Pat Robertson saying Hurricane Katrina was a judgment from God because of the hedonism and debauchery that runs rampant in the city. Well, he's at it again, isn't he? I wish he'd just shut up. He's giving real Christians a bad rep.

The storm changed the perspective of many people, including myself. Another blogger who I considered one of my best blogger buddies at the time was changed also.

I became less racist. He became more Liberal. Fanatically more Liberal. He is absolutely mad now.

He is married to a so-called intellectual. She is a doctor of some sort (he never enlightened his blog readers what she is a doctor of), who lectures all over the country, and also a raving Liberal.

She had her own blog. On her blog, she announced George Bush was at fault because a hospital ship was a day or two tardy getting to the port of New Orleans to aid in the rescue operations there.

Yes, I know, the connection between the two is tenuous at best, but I seem to recall her biased assessment of the situation made a sort of discombobulated sense in a Liberal, pseudo-intellectual kind of way. Somehow, it was the President's fault.

I wish I could explain her logic but it appears her blog is now non-existent, and frankly, I don't remember much of what she wrote, except that she blamed the President.

The media coverage I was referring to in the first paragraph was this. Here's a teaser for those who don't follow links:

The operating room is prepped with oxygen tanks, ventilators and a roster of blood donors. But while the USS Carl Vinson's medical facilities perhaps exceed those of any other triage center nearby, it had remained essentially unused since it arrived off the coast of Port-au-Prince early Friday

When did the Haitian earthquake strike? Wasn't it a few days before Friday?

Why is the hospital ship not helping? Is it political? Where are the incessant accusations from the left now? Why isn't anyone pointing fingers? Why is no one assigning blame? Who is at fault?

What is Obama doing?

Why aren't Liberal bloggers and the state run media blaming Obama?

Hurricane Katrina was all Bush's fault. Remember? At least that's what we were told.

The media says so. It must be true. Right?

I wonder how Rahm Emanuel and Obama and the rest of the gang can turn this latest crisis into a political advantage.

Listen: If Hurricane Katrina was George W. Bush's fault, then it stands to reason the blame for the Haitian earthquake lies squarely on Barack Hussein Obama's shoulders.

What are we going to do about that?
