Let’s see, right off the jump Hillary trucks off to Canada to tell them we don’t like them extracting oil from tar sands. That was brilliant, and Obama continues to refuse to approve the Keystone Pipeline to receive their oil which they threaten to ship to China. Let’s stick a finger in the eye of our best neighbor. The one who imports their oil so we don’t have to ship money to the Middle East. The one who isn’t shipping their people here since their economy is so much better than ours. Because of their oil, of course.

Then Obama embarks on his “World Apology” tour. Remember, the one where he told the world we were sorry we had spent so much blood and treasure to try to keep the rest of the world safe. The one where he bowed to the Saudi Prince. The one that won him the Nobel Peace Prize.

Obama then took his prize to the IOC to get the Olympics for Chicago. Sorry, Obama, it goes to Rio.

Then they announce the threat of terrorism was over. The word terrorism could no longer be used. It was to be replaced by “man caused disaster”. When the first Ft Hood massacre occurred it was declared a workplace accident, thus preventing the military families from getting wartime benefits and letting our troops know what to expect from this president. He announced we would pull all troops from Iraq, hence turning a victory into a great opportunity to let the enemy re-take a country where so many American’s had died and so much had been spent. An isolated friendly, democratic country in a sea of hatred. Gone. All to further embarrass an ex-president.

Next he reduces the air defense presence in Eastern Europe to appease Putin. Now, Putin is paying him back by re-taking the Ukraine.

Then he faced the situation in Benghazi. Had to lie big-time on this one, both he and Hillary. Election coming up and it was again obvious terrorism was not over as he had repeatedly promised. Still lying about that one.

Then the line in the sand. With Syria. Announcing we were going to retaliate, then looking to Congress for an out, and finally turning it over to his buddy Putin to resolve. Meanwhile watching while Iran puts the finishing touches on their nuclear weapons program and waiting to see if they blow Israel off the map as they promise.

These are just some highlights. But, the biggest issue is yet to come. He is turning America into a Socialist Democratic country, like Europe. That brings up the core issue with that plan. Europe has spent almost nothing on defense allowing them to put it all back into social programs. If we do the same, who is the world’s defender? Europe could do that because they had us to back them up. Who will back us up if we can’t protect ourselves. China, who is stepping up their defense spending?

Meanwhile, Gitmo, the first thing Obama pledged to do, remains open for business.

Some cartoonist just published a cartoon showing George W Bush in a tub being water-boarded with the caption “art critics”.” W” has been showing some of his paintings, which is a hobby he has been pursuing in retirement.  Obama has been sitting in a room deciding who gets zapped by a drone for five years and the left is still trying to bring back Bush and water-boarding.  Give me a break.

It would not be fair and balanced if I didn’t mention that Obama killed Osama. Some say it was the intelligence gleaned from water-boarding that allowed that to happen.

So, score one for Barack and Hillary. But, in every other example they were wrong. It’s a terrible record and one that will haunt Hillary and her “it doesn’t matter” comment over Benghazi and this dismal foreign policy record on her watch. She put a lot of miles in the air, like George Clooney did in the movie, “Up in he Air”, but it’s results that count. She was like a sales rep who piled up frequent flier miles with almost no sales. Sorry, thanks for your dedication to travel, but his is about results.

Think about it. How can an administration be wrong about so many things?

President Obama is rolling sevens in his latest public misinformation campaign.

Following up on “if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor”, is hard, but not for this president.

First, there’s the seven million who have enrolled on ObamaCare. If you believe this, maybe your can keep your doctor, even after the insurance company tells you no, the doctor’s office tells you no, and the ObamaCare hot line tells you no. Maybe if  you  go to your doctor with a certified check for $30K, and he can use it like an attorney uses a draw, you can keep that doctor. Otherwise, at some point, you must realize your president lied to you. See, no one will give you any details on the so-called seven million enrollees. Many have not paid and don’t intend to pay. Many others were kicked off their previous insurance plan and had to go here. Estimates of enrollees who are new to insurance or were denied insurance before for health or financial reasons are as low as 50-500K. Is this why we destroyed the entire health care model in America? Is this reason for a victory lap?

Obama rolls the dice again and they come up sevens again. He says women’s pay is 77 cents for every dollar paid to men. That’s true for his White House staff. He will have his professional liar Jay Carney defend this by saying that’s apples and oranges. Comparing pay for different jobs, not pay for the same job.

Let’s look at the 77 cent number and see if we can determine how Obama came up with that number. Did someone actually take every job in America and see what a man is paid on that job vs. a woman on the same job. Do companies really have two pay scales, one for men and one for women. My experience is a little dated, but the last company where I worked was strident about diversity. Women and minorities got the nod when hiring. They got the nod when promotions were considered. Pond scum was white males under 50 with no disabilities. I can’t imagine how a number like this can be determined without more work than anyone can afford to develop a true number.

I don’t question the glass ceiling. Not for one minute. But, women did not get serious about entering the workplace on an education and ambition basis until 40 years ago. It takes time to develop equality in a country this size. My brother-in-law is a veterinarian. He had his own practice and had trouble hiring graduate veterinarians. The majority of new graduates are women. But, almost none wanted to work full-time. How do these ObamaNomics accommodate those anomalies?

The truth of the matter is there is no truth in this matter. Nor, is there is much of what this president promotes.

But, America is on to  him. We don’t believe a number that passes his lips or a word that trips from his teleprompter.

If you happen to live one place in the winter and elsewhere the rest of the year you get to appreciate our money losing postal system. You have to manage having your mail forwarded from one place to another, then reversed.

You can do this on line, amazing that our post office is better than ObamaCare. But, wait. If you Google the USPS and address change, this is what you get. The first three options are all scams. They will upcharge you for brokering your deal with the Post Office. I haven’t gone far enough to see what the charge might be, but I’ve read where people who have complained say it’s as much as $20. A lot to save a trip to the Post Office vs. the Post Office charge of $1.20.

    Why would the USPS let the scam artists jump in front of them and take advantage of people who are already facing the stress of moving. It’s the government and they are incompetent and indifferent about things like this.

    Now, to the business of getting the address changed. It’s easy on the front end. You can go right in and start the forwarding. You can make it temporary or permanent. Unless, of course, your stay at the second address is longer than the six month limit the USPS puts on a temporary move. So, you can start the forwarding from the winter address, but can’t stop it when you plan to return.

    So, come January when you want to stop the mail at the summer house and start the forwarding from there to the winter headquarters, you have a problem. You needed to go back into the forward order at the winter house and stop it before you leave to go back there. If you wait too long now you have a gap where mail will go from the winter address to the summer address and back again. All because your USPS will not give you enough time to do it without you having to set up a reminder on your calendar to accommodate them.

    It’s time to sell the USPS to someone who can run it right and not lose money.
