Folks, let’s please attempt to make some sort of rational understanding from the recent comments made by the President of the United States. It appears that his research suggests that America needs to focus upon “Birth Control” and “Same-Sex Marriage.”

Does he have a valid point? Are these the most critical issues facing America, today?

Before attempting to understand why President Obama hopes we all focus upon birth control and same-sex marriage, let’s attempt to think “outside the box” and ask every day questions like…

(If you are not familiar with U-6 unemployment rates, The U-6 unemployment rate counts not only people without work seeking full-time employment (the more familiar U-3 rate), but also counts “marginally attached workers and those working part-time for economic reasons.” Note that some of these part-time workers counted as employed by U-3 could be working as little as an hour a week. And the “marginally attached workers” include those who have gotten discouraged and stopped looking, but still want to work. The age considered for this calculation is 16 years and over.)

If these questions meet your satisfaction, then perhaps the following videos will give even further insight into why President Obama wants to turn the focus upon birth control and same-sex marriage.

The above information suggests we have a President and Congress that hasn’t lost their vision. That vision is to tax and spend America into financial ruin. We have a President that is more about “theories”’ than “fact.” Can anyone imagine that President Obama cares about the unemployed, the homeless, the starving, our youth, and the future of America?

Since President Obama can’t run on his record of achievement – everything he has tried has failed, one could then understand why he prefers to focus upon anything but the State of the Union.

In this way, he avoids difficult questions and the BM Press (Big Media) is more than willing to always “tote his bucket” and make him seem saintly. After all, should anyone mention that Black unemployment is now heading north of 20%?

The world needs to be praying that American voters will gain insight into who and what President Obama and Congress is up to, vote the rotten apples out of office, and let’s return America to greatness for all – not just a few elitists!

CEO to Congress: I Was Fined Because I Hired Too Many People

Capitalist Punished for Creating Jobs

During his September 13th testimony before congress Peter Schiff, CEO of Euro Pacific Capital, revealed that he has been fined thousands of dollars by regulators for
hiring too many people. He also said that the regulators have required him to stop hiring all together. (h/t Fox Nation)

Peter Schiff followed up these shocking revelations with straight talk on how exactly big government policies choke free markets. He also went on to explain in detail exactly why a number of liberal ideas are disastrous in reality. His full testimony is, undoubtedly, a must watch.

Schiff has also laid out a fully detailed and radically different plan to roll back repressive government policies and breath new life into the economy at Forbes.

UPDATE: Here is how Schiff describes his ordeal with regulators who fined him for hiring too many workers in his Forbes piece:

“In my own business, securities regulations have prohibited me from hiring brokers for more than three years. I was even fined fifteen thousand dollar expressly for hiring too many brokers in 2008. In the process I incurred more than $500,000 in legal bills to mitigate a more severe regulatory outcome as a result of hiring too many workers. I have also been prohibited from opening up additional offices. I had a major expansion plan that would have resulted in my creating hundreds of additional jobs. Regulations have forced me to put those jobs on hold.”

Threat From Mexican Cartel Cancels High School Football Game In U.S.

Mexico High School Football Threat

SAN ANTONIO, TexasMexican drug cartels have threatened a high school football team from Mexico. The potential for violence prompted the team’s opponent in Texas to cancel an upcoming game.

The U.S. high school, near the South Texas city of Corpus Christi, decided Tuesday to call off its home game this week against the team from Monterrey Tech High in Mexico.

The Mexican school also cancelled last week against another Texas high school football game after threats from drug cartels. The Mexican school was told to pay $30,000 to safely cross the border.

“We’re looking out for the safety of our kids and their kids,” said Matt Anastacio, athletic director at Gregory-Portland High School.

Anastacio said school leaders acted out of an abundance of caution.

“Could anything happen? Probably not. But you never know with what’s going on down there,” he said. “Nothing may happen here. But when the kids from Monterrey go back, something may happen to them.”

A spokesman for Monterrey Tech declined comment. The Mexican team has played north of the border for years during its off-season.
