There’s no sense in starting the new year by reiterating that the president is a liar or a hypocrite. That’s stating it mildly. Saying one thing and doing another makes him a double-crosser. He didn’t win all those Pinocchios by being forthright.
“That math don’t add up.”
The president wants to help the middle class to grow. Buyer beware, you don’t know his definition of middle class. He states one thing and does the opposite. We’ve lost about $4,500 in median annual income, the new work week is 30 hours, five less than Europe’s 35, only 59 percent of Americans willing and able to work a 40-hour work week are working a 40-hour work week. We rank 16th in the world.
A million people signed up for health care while 6 million lost theirs. Ten thousand baby boomers retire daily. That’s a whopping 18 million people who retired since Obama took office, while boasting 8 million have joined the work force. Utilities, energy and the cost of living are up more than 20 percent. Flipping and bagging hamburgers should support a family. Trickle-up poverty right before your eyes.
Yep, “that math don’t add up.”
California posted 800-plus new laws this year. The most disturbing part is that several make illegal activity legal, as in illegal immigrants. If making laws is the sign of a working legislature, then California is doing just fine. I remember one law in particular – the revenue provided by personalized license plates was required to fund a specific fund. When a taxpayer watchdog group caught the fraud, California passed a law requiring the money to go into the fund the original law required. Progress by progressives, my friends.
California faces possibly another drought season. Instead of a high-speed rail system I would have thought several desalinization plants strategically located and pumping water into our thirsty reservoirs be more appropriate.
Senator Wolk and Rep. Garamendi, where were you?
