The following chart and commentary came from an old grade school friend of mine. Looking at these numbers it's amazing just how bad things have gotten in the last few years. "But the President inherited this from the Bush administration!" True, some of it he did. But, he's taken what was a really bad situation and just made it worse - way worse.

So that paycheck you have coming in, if you're lucky, just doesn't go as far as it used too, eh Bucky? You'll find the reason for this below. Having trouble finding work? Look below.

And get ready because if things don't get straightened out quickly in the Middle East we're going to sink into a hole we may never get out of.

Hope & Change???

Two years ago, Barack Obama was inaugurated as president of the United States . Are you better off today than you were two years ago? Numbers don't lie, and here are the data on the impact he has had on the lives of Americans:

Just take this last item: In the last two years we have accumulated national debt at a rate more than 27 times as fast as during the rest of our entire nation's history. Over 27 times as fast!

Metaphorically, speaking, if you are driving in the right lane doing 65 MPH and a car rockets past you in the left lane 27 times faster . . . it would be doing 1,755 MPH! This is a disaster!

  1. This is what happens when a nation rejects God as its King. All flesh is grass. Oh, I almost forgot: unreleatedly that's the topic of my last blog entry!

    And the flesh that is grass is about to be thrown into the oven.
