In May 2003, Obama called on the Senate to resist Bush's "unprecedented $300 billion deficit" that "underscores the recklessness of the George W. Bush administration and the Republican Congress". During the 2008 campaign, Czar Obama said, "The first thing you do when you're in a hole is what? ... You stop digging. So the first thing that we're going to have to do is to stop adding to our deficit." During the 61 full months of Czar Obama's reign, the national debt increased by $6.83 trillion to $17.46 trillion, at an annual rate of $1.34 trillion. The increase in the last 12 months was $0.78 trillion. During Bush's 95 full months, the debt increased $4.98 trillion at an annual rate of $0.63 trillion. Obama's rate is 2.13 times Bush's. Bush was bad ... Obama is horrible. newsandopinions dot net

I went to the Round Rock, Texas dealer in January 2013. Here is the price shown to me by a parts-department employee on his monitor for the battery assembly ... $23,805. I was told an auto repair shop cannot buy one. Your Volt must be taken to a Chevy dealer and the service department, not the parts department, will order a battery. When delivered, the Chevy service department will replace the battery. newsandopinions dot net

Benjamin Franklin said, “Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch.” Because (1) 43.3% of households pay no federal income taxes, (2) 60 million people receive Medicaid and CHIP, (3) 47.6 million people receive food stamps (SNAP), (4) 30.6 million children receive school lunches and (5) 27 million households receive Earned Income Tax Credits; these wolves outnumber the lambs and will decide what to have for lunch. The easiest way for politicians to get elected is to promise to keep the government trough full. The productive people have lost the war. In 2010, households in the top 20% of before-tax income paid 92.9% of the federal net income taxes. Nevertheless, this 20% is targeted to provide even more freebies. newsandopinions dot net
If my Social Security taxes had been placed in a private account and earned only 4.46% per year, the current monthly interest would be equal to the monthly after-tax payment I receive. When I die, my heirs would receive $338,000. Instead, they will receive nothing from Social Security. newsandopinions dot net
