Barack Obama Declares War on Investors, Entrepreneurs, Businesses, And … Our American Economy

And socialism took over America under the guise of “Change you can Believe In” as Obama_socialists-changepeople naively looked on and waited for their redistribution of wealth only to realize that they were by definition, the wealthy. Obama is what we said he was … a tax and spend liberal (socialist). How many of you that voted for change thought you were voting for socialism, even though you had been warned?

As Larry Kudlow stated … Obama is declaring war on investors, entrepreneurs, small businesses, large corporations, and private-equity and venture-capital funds. As The Astute Blogger very well states, OBAMA IS ATTACKING THE VERY HEART AND SOUL OF THE ECONOMY.

Let me be very clear on the economics of President Obama’s State of the Union speech and his budget.

He is declaring war on investors, entrepreneurs, small businesses, large corporations, and private-equity and venture-capital funds.

That is the meaning of his anti-growth tax-hike proposals, which make absolutely no sense at all — either for this recession or from the standpoint of expanding our economy’s long-run potential to grow.

Reefer Madness … More Obama Change, This Time with Rules on Medical Marijuana


Stoners of America unite as here is a medical marijuana change you can believe in from REEFER1the Obama Administration.  Obama said in an interview in March that it was “entirely appropriate” for a state to legalize the medical use of marijuana “with the same controls as other drugs prescribed by doctors.” It would appear as if Obama is about to make yet another change when it comes to Rules on medical marijuana.

U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder is sending strong signals that President Obama – who as a candidate said states should be allowed to make their own rules on medical marijuana – will end raids on pot dispensaries in California.

Asked at a Washington news conference Wednesday about Drug Enforcement Administration raids in California since Obama took office last month, Holder said the administration has changed its policy.

The Dying Art of Handwriting? A Random Thought from Dugga

A recent article from the BBC asks if we’ll still be writing by hand at all 100 years from now.

“A century from now, our handwriting may only be legible to experts.”

A good question, indeed. I was trying to think of the last time I used “handwriting”. In 2nd grade, when I was taught the skill, we called it “cursive.” A few years later, as teachers would allow, my “cursive” writing gave way to “printed” letters. Now, my signature is little more than a scribble, and when pressed to do so, I admit to having trouble remembering how to form an uppercase “S” or differentiate between a lowercase “z” and “g”.

My desk at work is cluttered with chicken-scratch scribblings on yellow post it notes, but none of these amount to anything more than cheat-sheets or disposable reminders. Even in meetings when note-taking is required, I fire up my laptop and begin typing rather than grab a legal pad.

Perhaps I’m unique in that I spend 12 hours per day behind a keyboard. Spiral notebooks and fine writing utensils won’t be found among my business tools.

What are we losing by moving to a keyboard-based form of text communication? Does it even matter?

I’m interested in what you think, Monkeys.  Of course, you will need to type in your response!
