Obama lies continue, Energy policy Political Platitudes, Gas prices, Truth team moment, No concern from Obama for poor and working families

“the Times of the nineteenth of December had published the official forecasts of the output of various classes of consumption goods in the fourth quarter of 1983, which was also the sixth quarter of the Ninth Three-Year Plan. Today’s issue contained a statement of the actual output, from which it appeared that the forecasts were in every instance grossly wrong. Winston’s job was to rectify the original figures by making them agree with the later ones.”…George Orwell, “1984″

“And if all others accepted the lie which the Party imposed
–if all records told the same tale–then the lie passed into
history and became truth. “Who controls the past,” ran the
Party slogan, “controls the future: who controls the present
controls the past.”…George Orwell, “1984″

“Propaganda must not serve the truth, especially not insofar
as it might bring out something favorable for the opponent.”
Adolf Hitler

PP effluent from Obama and left.

Political Platitudes.

These are designed to appeal to Obama’s core support, the left, the elitists, the experts at spending other people’s money, like colleges and universities.

Obama PP in recent speeches.

In regard to the Republicans plan:

“three-point plan for $2 gas”

“Step one is to drill, step two is to drill, and step three is to keep on drilling.”

“not a strategy to solve our energy challenge.”

“It’s the easiest thing in the world to make phony election-year promises about lower gas prices,”

“What’s harder is to make a serious, sustained commitment to tackle a problem that may not be solved in one year or one term or even one decade.”

And straight from “1984″ by George Orwell.

“In 2011, the United States relied less on foreign oil than in any of the last 16 years. Because of the investments we’ve made, the use of clean, renewable energy in this country has nearly doubled, and thousands of Americans have jobs because of it.”

Obama is speaking to his elitist, know it all support, such as the UNC University System, which recently raised tuition in a down economy.

This is a Truth Team moment.

While I agree that we need a comprehensive, common sense based energy program, we also need cheaper oil products in the short term. If Obama and his cronies really cared about poor and working class families, they would be concerned about rising gas prices which in turn raise the price of almost everything else, especially food prices. Obama appeases lower income folks with his lying rhetoric and the left with PP, Political Platitudes.

Obama states “not a strategy to solve our energy challenge.” in response to Republicans wanting lower gas prices. Obama’s startegy to help the economy and jobs has failed.

Obama, what is your stategy to help the poor and working families afford food.

More food stamps!

“phony election-year promises”

Obama is the king of phony election year promises.

Obama plan:

Tax

Spend

Promise

Blame

And in case you haven’t noticed, here is a chart presented here last year of the gas prices since Obama took office. I am certain you are aware of food price increases.

Middle class incomes fell in past decade, between 2000 and 2010, Incomes fell in 2010, Adjusted for inflation, Gas prices

Middle class incomes fell in past decade, between 2000 and 2010, Incomes fell in 2010, Adjusted for inflation, Gas prices

From the Chicago Tribune September 21, 2011.

“Middle class incomes fell 7% between 2000 and 2010″

“It’s official. The first decade of the 21st century will go down in the history books as a step back for the American middle class.

Last week, the government made gloomy headlines when it released the latest census report showing the poverty rate rose to a 17-year high. A whopping 46.2 million people (or 15.1 percent of the U.S. population) live in poverty and 49.9 million live without health insurance.

But the data also gave the first glimpse of what happened to middle-class incomes in the first decade of the millennium. While the earnings of middle-income Americans have barely budged since the mid 1970s, the new data showed that from 2000 to 2010, they actually regressed.

For American households in the middle of the pay scale, income fell to $49,445 last year, when adjusted for inflation, a level not seen since 1996. And over the 10-year period, their income is down 7 percent.

“Economists talk about the lost decade in Japan. Well, with these 2010 data, we can confirm the lost decade for the American middle class,“ said Jared Bernstein, senior fellow at the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities.

Sure, it’s fair to say Americans at all levels of income, from rich to poor, were hit hard in the decade that started with the dot-com boom and bust, and ended with the Great Recession.

But according to the census data, those losses disproportionately hit the lowest 60 percent of Americans, while the richest 40 percent actually gained wealth, relative to the entire U.S. economy.”

“At the same time that Americans had less cash to spend, they were also being hit with rising prices for some crucial items. Even accounting for inflation, it still costs more to buy a home, fill your gas tank, go to the doctor and put food on the table than it did only 10 years ago.”

You all remember this political comeback:

“It’s the economy, stupid!”

Here is the relevant comment for today:

“It’s gas prices, stupid!”

From Citizen Wells September 15, 2011.

“Gasoline Prices

One of the biggest, if not biggest drains on the economy, one exacerbated by Obama and his cronies, is gasoline prices. This affects the cost of everything and is killing our economy. The left are so  concerned about theoretical environmental damage and emulating Europeans that they disregard the plight of average Americans. Below is a chart showing the rise in fuel prices during the Obama reign.

I am all for alternative energy initiatives that make sense and are not in place to enrich Obama supporters. In fact, I have done so myself with my own limited funds. However, gasoline prices are hurting this economy and the poor and middle class citizens who the Democrats pretend to represent.

Drill baby drill!”

Gas prices, oil refineries, global warming, polar bears, environmental wackos, economy

Always follow the money.

We all want a clean environment. Most of us want a healthy economy, jobs and gasoline to get to our jobs. There are some, mostly environmental wackos, that typically don’t have to work for a living. They get government money, non profit money, live with mommy & daddy or just generally bum off of people. They don’t care how high gas price go, or if you can even get it. They don’t have to work for a living.

So, wondering why gas prices are going up? Number 1 reason. Lack of refining capacity. This already existing problem was exacerbated by Hurricane Katrina. Refining capacity was reduced approximately 20 % or more. We are still trying to recover from that. Secondly, we are not using our reserves. Alaska has a huge amount of oil.

So, what is hampering our oil production. Environmental wackos. Let’s take Alaska for example. Of course, they always bring up environmental impact. But they also bring up animals like polar bears and whales. They use pseudo science of global warming and terms like may and could cause. They consistently use false data and science. I hear talk of polar bears becoming extinct almost every day when in fact their numbers have increased. Alleged receding ice will fundamentally have no impact on their numbers. 

So, when you fill up with gas, remember who is causing the problem, who only cares about fictitious polar bear issues and could care less about you.
