From waging undeclared wars to legalizing illegal immigrants Obama's disdain and disregard for historic custom and the Constitution is legendary.
Putting aside Federal Court rulings, Executive Orders and legal status for 4 million undocumented (illegal) immigrants, we have just experienced a classic example of fear mongering.
The latest brouha comes from Rudy Giulianis comment he made last week that President Obama didnt love America. Media attacks, political cold shoulders and even death threats have been the order of the day for the former New York City mayor.
Mortgage origination at all time lows, food stamp recipients at all time highs and millions not counted in the participation pool seems to prove that the Fed has been successful in keeping the dreaded hyperinflation or even simple inflation from infiltrating our economy.
Since, however, we (meaning the war loving Congress) are on the same side as Assad in the war against radical Islam (there, I said it Mr. President) ISIS, isnt his bombing raids a good thing?
Foreign involvement in a civil war is nothing new.
Most recently, the Chief Economist for CitiGroup stated that if Greece were to exit the European Union there would be a financial collapse and a deeper recession than the country is already experiencing-probably a depression.
In 2013, the National Bureau of Economic Research (BEA), concerned that so-called recovery was not on track, decided to REVISE the figures to include new measures and data to better capture the U.S. economy.
The first thing I learned from the film was that this was not a war on something. Most of us have become complacent to a war on drugs, war on literacy, war on obesity, war on poverty and turned off by the casual over usage of the word war.
After eight years of George Bush America was ready for hope and change. Unemployment was escalating, home prices collapsing and the U.S. military occupied all corners of the world. Yes, it was time for a change. Six years later the American public is once again setting its sights on the Presidential election of 2016.
As we enter 2015 with a worldwide bang, not a whimper, it would seem that a paradox of quotes will be the marching orders for the remainder of the year.
The American public feels more financially secure yet more economically detached in a new survey conducted by Bankrate.com. Unfortunately the only thing the survey proved was out-of-sight out-of-mind and the belief that others misfortune is not my concern.
Given that the House and now the Senate are under Republican control it would seem ludicrous that the President would announce programs that had no chance of passage. But announce he did.
The reality of falling gas prices has finally hit home. It is no longer 1973 when the bulk of every dollar put into the tank went to a Sheik who could care less about the well-being of the American public.
The Swiss National Bank pulled a fast one and allowed the markets to be the markets and go to where they normally would be without intervention. Congratulations SNB at being the first!
A bit confusing wouldnt you say? But those were the headlines that greeted me with my morning coffee.
So the GOP wants to raise taxes on gasoline and my conservative columnist colleagues are all aghast. Bad character, bad politics and bad policy one proclaims. A wet blanket proposal another chides. Really gentlemen? Are you actually surprised?
By now everyone knows that the decline in the unemployment rate is simply a function of the record (92.9 million) Americans not counted in the labor force. THEY ARE MISSING!
In the 1970s, Paul Volcker was faced with runaway inflation. Double digits were not the exception but the norm. In order to slow things down he took a page out of the Economics Manual 101 and raised interest rates.
Madam Merkels rationalization at the exit of Greece from the great experiment is acceptable if Germany and Greece existed in a vacuum. Unfortunately that is not the case.
