Everything That is Wrong With Wall Street

Banks give individuals home loans they can’t afford, the housing bubble spreads across the country, banks pools poor performing home loans into collateralize debt obligations to rate them as sound investments, local governments invest hundreds of millions into these collateralize debt obligations, the economy begins to slows down, hundreds of thousands are left unemployed, families can’t afford their mortgage, the housing bubble pops, banks repose homes, families are ruined, local governments lose millions from their pensions, some local governments go into bankruptcy, banks buy up homes for less than they worth, homeowners own mortgages for more than their homes are worth, banks begging renting homes back to families that lost their homes in foreclosures, banks push local governments to lower properties taxes since they now own a large number of homes, local communities lose out on income, funding to schools is cut, …

The Token President

By not closing Guantanamo Bay as he promised in the 2008 presidential campaign and by signing the National Defense Authorization Act of 2013, by ordering the death by drone of American citizens, and many other acts President Obama has proved that he has not been the president of change Americans had hoped for. President Obama has not been a better president than President Bush, and in fact President Obama’s administration has followed to the letter many of Bush’s policies. It can safely be said that President Obama has been a disappointment as a president and that he is a token president.

Pompous Potus Maximus

From time to time, President Obama makes archaic executive orders where he starts off as the following…

By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, and consistent with the provisions of the Federal Advisory Committee Act, as amended (5 U.S.C. App.), it is hereby ordered as follows

Just imagine if everyone spoke in this pompous slimeball superfluous legalese sort of way. I imagine President Obama walking around the White House with a speech writer and a teleprompter making such executive decrees whenever he pleases…

By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, the Nobel Peace Price, my tribesmen of Kenya, and consistent with the provisions of the Federal Advisory Committee Fun Fact Act as amended (5 U.S.C. App.), it is hereby ordered as follows… I can has a cheeseburger.

President Obama Statement on Barbaric Terrorist Attacks

Because any attack against any person can be construed as terrorist, no matter the perceived tactic or motive, Nobel Peace Price recipient and President Barack Obama has come out with a statement condemning the attack in Burgas, Bulgaria. If you read between the lines the President’s statement reads in part…

I strongly condemn today’s barbaric terrorist attack on Israelis in Bulgaria. … These attacks against innocent civilians, including children, are completely outrageous. If the attackers had used a General Atomics MQ-1 Predator unmanned aerial vehicle fully loaded with Hellfire missiles it would not have been so barbaric. If the innocent civilians, including children, had been in Pakistan or Yemen it wouldn’t have been so outrageous.

Democracy or Donationcracy

We are lying to ourselves when we say that we live in a free democracy. It is estimated that candidates raised in excess of $1.6 billion in the presidential election in 2008. For the 2012 elections, political pundits estimate that candidates will raise as much as $2 billion. In 2008, Obama spent $10.94/vote and McCain spent $5.78. When candidates raise and spend this much money, no ones vote is free. It is the case that usually the candidates that raises the most money wins the most votes. In 2008, then Senator Obama raised a little over two times that raised by Senator McCain. As of March, President Obama had raised more than twice that of Governor Romney.

In the end, elections are run by the bottom line and the money raised. The more money a candidate has in his war chest the more they can spend in marketing. Even though every voter has a vote, the more an election costs the more every voter is disenfranchised from the political system. When a large portion of a campaign is spent attracting large donors in %50k/plate dinners the typical voter is going to get left out of the political system.

Obama’s American Dream Deferred

While speaking to students at University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (UNC), President Obama said the following

So we’ve still got a lot of work to do to rebuild this economy so that it lasts, so that it’s solid, so that it’s firm.  But what I want you to know is that the degree you earn from UNC will be the best tool you have to achieve that basic American promise — the idea that if you work hard, you can do well enough to raise a family and own a home, send your own kids to college, put a little away for retirement.  (Applause.)  That American Dream is within your reach.  (Applause.) 

Let’s be honest… Obama’s kids version of the American Dream is to marry Jewish investment bankers like Chelsea Clinton. When I was a kid, the American Dream used to be to go to the moon, not squirrel away pennies for retirement. The American Dream meant that if you work hard you can achieve anything, now it means that if you work hard you can pay off your mortgage.
