I feel America bleeding, as more and more of our working class are losing their jobs, homes and families.
More than 26 million Americans are unemployed or underemployed workers.
President Obama promised during his campaign last year that, if elected, he would stop the unemployment losses at 8 percent.
Well, the USA is now approaching that scary 10 percent.
When the 1929 stock market crashed, unemployment hit 12 percent.
Seems even Barak Obama, whose nickname is "The Messiah," can't stop this jobless recession from losing 12 percent of our working class since he was sworn in as President on January 20.
The stock market actually started its downward slide in late December 2007. I remember it well. My Fidelity Investment portfolio had reached almost $230,000. It dropped to $170,000 when Obama was leading in almost all the political polls as America's next president.
Politics have a great power over the jittery stock market. When it goes up, we all celebrate. When it drops like a lead balloon, we all wonder what happened?
What happened was the liberal media won with its man -- Barak Hussein Obama -- and the silent, law-abiding majority in America lost!
Lost really BIG!
I know, personally, because I was in that avalanche of lost money. I lost more than 40 percent of my rertirement investment.
With luck -- and faith -- we should be out of this recession-depression mess by 2016.
How many of you reading this column can wait that long?
Those in their 80s and 90s are counting the days -- not the months or years.
The sad Reality is that America -- the world's economic powerhouse until this spring -- is now sinking, along with countries that still believe in 'Democracy. (Actually, the U.S. is a Republic, not a Democracy, which evolves into Socialism -- and Communism.)
America is up against a slippery slope where no one really knows what the outcome will be.
Already, no foreign countries are investing in the United States of America, until conditions here dramatically change. (No, not Obama's "CHANGE" and 'HOPE.")
No wonder America is up to its eyeballs in Debt.
America is broke.
America is bankrupt!
Who wants to invest in a losing battle?
Obama won the election because of his corrupt ACORN organization based in Chicago, where he served as both State and U.S. Senator and now President. Obama, an attorney, as is his wife, was ACORN'S lawyer. The FBI is investigating ACORN'S criminal activities in some 13 states, where tens of thousands of fraudulent votes were cast for ACORN'S leader.
Obama,The Magician with his bag full of dirty tricks, fooled American voters with his sweet, stylistic words sent to him on his unseen prompters. Wherever Obama went, so did his magical Prompters.
The guy's a fake -- like an old western town in the movies, which has only a facade instead of a completely built structure.
Wherever Obama goes, he comes with a stage full of U.S. flags, like a patriot in disguise.
America wants to know, who is the "Real" Barack Hussein Obama?
We may never know because of his background as a Muslim (and Christian) who claims he was born in the United States. He has yet to deliver a "legitimate birth certificate" showing where he was really born (in Mombasa, Kenya, Africa). He claims he was born in Honolulu, Hawaii. His white grandmother said he was born in Africa -- which means he cannot serve as President because only American-born citizens can be sworn in as President.
Historians in future years will describe the short Era of Obama as perhaps the greatest folly ever in America's political history.
Will America ever recover from "OBAMANIA?"
Yes, if Americans can ever overcome the public madness of this unknowable creature from the South Side Streets of Chicago, the most crooked city in America.
America will be back on its feet when the unemployment number gets down to 5 percent, which could take another 5 to 7 years to happen.
Meanwhile, folks, tighten your belts and pull down the hatch until "Happy Days Are Here Again."
