OBAMANOMICS - From the Sophist in Chief

In 2006, Senator Obama argued and voted against raising the debt ceiling. In 2007 and 2008, he didn't even bother to vote.

In 2006...

“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 U.S. Government can’t 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.”

Obama and Warren Buffet don't need tax breaks. 

They both would be willing to "give" more in taxes, but they've never been asked. 
In what Bizarre-o world are taxes paid equated to "voluntary charitable giving" and taxes charged by the government are equated to a "voluntary request" for payment.

Am I missing the part of the tax code that outlines the penalties for non-compliance. 
This is the same mind-set that believes the federal government provides "subsidies" to churches because it does not tax them. It's all the governments property, they just decide to let you keep some of it. 


Obama will cut deficit in half FEB 2009

"Obama talks about how he will cut the deficit in half during his first term - and why it's so important. Really? The 2008 budget deficit was 458 billion. Obama's proposed new budget for this year has a deficit of 1.1 TRILLION. For God's sake - WTF???"
Let me see if I get this straight Chief. "You were going to cut the deficit in half, before you decided to double it as far as the eye can see." Is that about right? Or am I not hearing the words that are coming out of your Teleprompter correctly?
PLAN A - fail miserably
PLAN B - hope electorate forgot about PLAN B and proceed to PLAN B
PLAN B - lather, rinse, repeat.
Obamanomics = Bullshit²
What happened in Wisconsin showed that the mind-set of these government idiots and their lackeys is "what's mine is mine and what's yours is mine to if I want to take it." 
Our standard of living has been a bit of a charade for decades and now the bill is coming due. GDP has been highly subsidized by government spending for many years, growth has been an illusion.

Giants Top Minor League Prospects

  • 1. Tyler Beede 6-4, 215 RHP from Vanderbilt projects as top of the rotation starter when he works out his command/control issues. When he misses, he misses by a bunch.
  • 2. Christian Arroyo 6-1, 180 SS very efficient with the bat, good hitting approach, test will be how he handles advanced pitching
  • 3. Bryan Reynolds 6-2, 210 OF Switch hitter with average speed and polished hitting approach. Fits Giants mold of high-floor, low-ceiling prospects. .
  • 4. Chris Shaw 6-3. 230 1B Lefty power bat, limited defensively to 1B, Matt Adams comp?
  • 5. Andrew Suarez 6-2, 185 LHP Miami grad, not over powering, but gets guys out.
  • 6. Sandro Fabian 6-0, 180 OF Dominican signee from 2014, shows some pop in his bat. Below average arm and lack of speed should push him towards LF.
  • 7. Joan Gregorio 6-7, 180 RHP Misses bats, buts also missed the strike zone too much. Twenty five years old and in AAA, may be time to put up or move along.
  • 8. Stephen Duggar 6-1, 170 CF Another toolsy, under-achieving OF in the Gary Brown mold, hoping for better results.
  • 9. Aramis Garcia 6-2, 220 C from Florida INTL projects as a good bat behind the dish with enough defensive skill to play there long-term
  • 10. Heath Quinn 6-2, 190 OF Strong hitter, makes contact with improving approach at the plate. Returns from hamate bone injury.
  • 11. Jordan Johnson 6-3,200 RHP His FB cruises at 93-96 mph and touched 98, while averaging 12.3 K/9, with improved command, he could become a mid-rotation starter
  • 12. Sam Coonrod 6-3, 215 RHP Hard-thrower got off to a good start in rookie ball, impressed with high K/BB ratio. Needs to keep ball in the yard.
  • 13. Matt Krook 6-4, 225 LHP Can be unhittable at times. Has outstanding life on 92-94 MPH FB. CB can be a plus-plus pitch with power and depth, slider shows flashes. If he can't harness his stuff well enough to stay in the rotation, his FB/CB combo could still make him a high-leverage reliever.
  • 14. Austin Slater 6-2, 215 2B well-schooled from Stanford Univ. via The Bolles School in Jacksonville FL good size, speed combo with hit tool playing well through AA. Line drive, gap hitter with 15HR power potential
