There is a bill that has cleared the House of Representatives and is now being debated in the Senate.  This bill, sponsored by Senate Banking Committee Chairman Christopher Dodd, labeled a “Financial Reform Bill” , which according to President Obama, will clear corruption from Wall Street and large insurance firms, investment firms and banking institutions.  Obama’s own words:

Too Big To Bail

In Congress, Corruption, Finance, Government Lies, Obama, US Senate, World News on February 15, 2010 at 4:19 am

I remember not long ago, the Government’s warning of financial meltdown if certain banks deemed too big to fail, were not bailed out. The warning contradicted everything I thought I knew about the free market.  Did I misunderstand capitalism? Perhaps naïvely, I regard Capitalism like nature in that; every financial institution will naturally find its place on the ever-shifting financial food chain. Even a child understands that nature, while exceedingly magnificent, has a darker side. With today’s breathtaking high-definition coverage, a lion devouring a freshly killed gazelle after a grueling chase is stunning. While nature, like capitalism, is sometimes unfair it remains just and balanced.

President Obama has taken it upon himself to intervene on matters best left alone. When the proverbial lions, AIG, CitiGroup and Lehman Brothers face almost certain death, Barack Obama makes the determination that nearly $1 trillion of taxpayer dollars should be used to “save” the behemoths. Naturally, if such banking giants were to collapse, the effect on the global economy would be devastating; wouldn’t it?

(Source: dailyfinance.com) Too big to fail? This isn’t a designation that the Obama administration wants to exist any more. New regulations proposed by President Obama would result in “leaner and simpler institutions that don’t carry the weight of the system,” according to the Associated Press.

It was believed that the collapse of any of these companies could result in the collapse of the entire American financial system — which is why they were bailed out. But the bailouts did little good other than cost billions and billions of taxpayers’ money. In order to prevent this from happening again, President Obama wants a group of interconnected companies to “pay a heavy price for the systemwide risk they pose.”

Obama's First Year; A Case Study In Failed Lessons And Poor Judgment

In Congress, Corruption, Government Lies, Health Care, marxism, military, morality, national security, Obama, Socialism, terrorism, Uncategorized, US Senate, World News on February 1, 2010 at 11:22 pm

A good solid B+? Many would argue otherwise. President Obama has tirelessly maintained his stance that America simply needs to understand his vision for the future. The people simply aren’t listening. From where the President sits Americans seem the dumbest nation of people to ever be governed (not to mention extremely uncooperative). Or, could it be Obama is the one who fails to understand the people?

I took it upon myself to take a closer look at the many poor decisions the President has made since taking office. More often than not, poor decisions are the result of poor judgment. As I began to recall the many lapses in judgment by the young progressive, I struggle with where to begin. Due to overwhelming  examples, I will narrow the scope to six:

Obama Gives Interpol Authority Over US Constitution

In communism, Corruption, freedom, living free on January 3, 2010 at 4:16 am

On January 3rd 1983 President Ronald Reagan commissioned Executive Order 12425. What does the Order do? Townhall.com explains:

“Reagan’s order recognized Interpol as an International Organization and gave it privileges and immunities commonly extended to foreign diplomats. Reagan opened the door to allow Interpol to operate in partnership with the U.S. but with significant constitutional safeguards. Specifically, Interpol’s property and assets remained subject to search and seizure by American law enforcement, and its archived records remained subject to public scrutiny under provisions of the Freedom of Information Act. Interpol had to answer to the FBI and U.S. courts under Reagan’s order.”

In short, Reagan ensures the Constitution of The United States remains the highest law of the land. President Reagan’s Order guarantees Americans Constitutional protections from Interpol. In addition, Order 12425 mandates that Interpol stay open to scrutiny by the United States government. Sadly, Reagan’s protections are now gone.

No, I’m talking about REAL Hope

In freedom, living free on December 4, 2009 at 1:39 am

It’s 11:45 pm Thursday night and I am sitting in bed, MacBook on my lap, thinking about my life, and more specifically, where I fit in this world. As I stare at the blank screen I wonder about my ‘true calling’ and when we will meet. Do you know the feeling when you have a full tank of gas and yet, your engine won’t turn over? That’s where I find myself this evening. Earlier tonight, I caught just a bit of Glenn Beck’s “A Christmas Sweater” in which Glenn acts out all the characters in the story himself. The book/play is an interpretation of his life and his eventual road to redemption. One evening while in his thirties, Glenn found himself on the floor of his small apartment, in the fetal position ready to give up on it all. No money, no direction, and no belief in himself. This was the moment when everything would change. Glenn realized that nobody was coming through that door to pick him up, and it would be entirely up to himself to get up. From that moment on he made a decision to do whatever it took, regardless of self-doubt, hard times, or tough luck. Well, “life proved quite worth the effort” he would explain.
