Between Barack And A Hard Place
Well well what do you know? While President Obama was busy destroying America's robust economy with his socialist policies and spendulus bills, there was one force brave enough to stand up against this liberal assault on freedom.
And we don't mean by throwing some ridiculous Rick Santelli tea party with the rest of your Fox News loving friends.
We mean by taking decisive action. Like the Dow Jones Industrial Average plunging 25% in the two months since inauguration to protest Comrade Barry's all-out assualt on Wall Street.
Included in his guerrilla war on investors, bankers and other persecuted members of the business elite is billions and billions of government bailout dollars to rescue these innocent victims from the seductive but toxic cocktail of unchecked power and unbridled greed.
As if that weren't punishment enough, Barack Obama wants higher taxes for the wealthy, pay caps for bankrupt millionaire execs using taxpayer bailout funds, and increased oversight of banks, investment firms and all other Madoffy sounding institutions with the words hedge, equity, mortgage or fund in their name.
But perhaps most threatening is Mr. common man Obama's new mortgage plan to help not just the poor, suffering lenders but the millions of struggling homeowners in danger of losing their homes.
Ugh those losers?!?
What happened to the good old days when you're only rewarded for risky, irresponsible behavior if you make over $250,000 a year, and/or have presided over the complete collapse of at least one major U.S. corporation?
