1. Barry Obama - the bottom dropped out when his Lie of the Year became the Truth Seen by the Blind.

 

Blame it on Bush.

Seems you missed the biggest career crash or bust of all and that is Obama for the "unaffordable care act" that is ruining health care for virtually every single person in the country and if it isn't ruining them financially they won't be able to pay for the health care they will receive.  He's No. 1 in my book and will be throughout history for his incompetence and anti-American attitude and ideology - he never saw a tax, a regulation or an unconstitutional act that he didn't like!

NOW THAT OBAMA HAS PROVEN HIMSELF TO BE A LIAR SINCE WAY BACK WHEN!!!

I FEAR THAT THE REAL DANGER IS NEVER FINDING OUT HOW MANY LIES HE HAS REALLY TOLD!!!!!!!!!


 "The fact that we are here today to debate raising America's debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the US Government cannot pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government's reckless fiscal policies. Increasing America's debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that, 'the buck stops here.' Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better."
   ~ Senator Barack H. Obama, March 2006

Ear Infection

This is so true!  They always ask at the doctor's office why 
you are there, and you have to answer in front of others what is 
wrong and sometimes it is embarrassing.  There is nothing worse than a Doctor's Receptionist who insists you tell her what is wrong with you in a room full of other 
patients. I know most of us have experienced 
this, and I love the way this old guy handled 
it. A 65-year-old man walked into a 
crowded waiting room and approached the 
desk.The Receptionist said, 'Yes sir, what are 
you seeing the Doctor for today?'
 'There's something wrong with my dick', he 
replied.
 The receptionist became irritated and 
said, 'You shouldn't come into a crowded waiting room and say 
things like that. '
 
'Why not, you asked me what was wrong and 
I told you,' he said.
 
The Receptionist replied; 'Now you've  embraced the whole waiting room. so he left , came back in ten minutes and approached the receptionist and said something is wrong with my ear, and she replied what is wring with your ear?/ He said I can't piss out of it.
  Don't mess with old people.

Anyone that believes that this country does not need a deep revamp and start from the top down is out to disneyland with no hope of return. We can help other companies and countries. But now they want to let Detroit clam bankruptcy so they can start getting their hands on pension funds The only reason it had not happened in New York City because the judges are in the same fund. If they ever separate the  judges from the rest, the little people will never have a chance. Remember the Teflon Don? They separated Gotti from his star defence team and it was over. Whether he was right or wrong he still was railroaded. Government does not like competition. So now we have the Teflon Politician and Cronies. All these people will come back smellin like a rose later on when the heat is off of them. They may not be as visible, but will not be hurting as if it were Joe the taxpayer.

The so called "Affordable Care Act" is a total waste of honest hard working people's time not to mention their money.  I do not understand why government, of any country thinks they are in control of peoples health??

When you about these crashes, it makes you realize there is a God. So many politicians, celebrities and executives do not deserve the blessings they abuse.

Look how many people lost their jobs on account of political correctness.  Only one lost his job for saying ugly things about a conservative.  I am growing to hate this country.

Lara Logan?  Really?  She trusted someone and reported the wrong info, ONE TIME!! Really?  How about somebody else that literally "lied through their teeth" to protect their own posteriors in regards to Benghazi,  gosh, do the names Barry or Hillary ring a bell?  And how about Jay Carney. I really feel sorry for people like that.  They are chosen to spin, lie, or deceive any possible issue that could be detrimental to the White House. Gosh, what an occupation, say anything to make the boss look good at any cost.
