"H" is for....

It has just been reported that the Texas Board of Education, which is in the process of finalizing the content of school textbooks, had a battle last night between liberals and conservatives on whether or not to use Barack Obama’s middle name Hussein in their history books. Liberals contested the use of the middle name would be inflammatory, while conservatives consider it just accurate.

It seems we should have a construction worker always flanking Obama, preferably one that did not get one of those “shovel ready” jobs, with a sign similar to the Stop & Go ones used for single lane traffic. Only this one would have Barack Obama (BO) on one side and Barack Hussein Obama (BHO) on the other. Think of how practical that would be for our Teleprompter in Chief, throughout his life. I suppose he would use the BHO side while enrolling in school as a child in Indonesia and the BO side upon moving to Hawaii. He would use BHO side while applying for financial aid to attend college as a foreign student and the BO side while running for State Senator. He could use BHO while attending Rev. Wright’s church and BO while running for U.S. Senator. He could use BHO to be sworn in as U.S. President and BO for his press conferences. Lastly, he would use BHO while apologizing for America and its citizens while bowing to foreign leaders and BO while telling us not to jump to conclusions during the first four attacks by radical Islamists during his first 1 ½ years in office.

Since there seems to be too much controversy over his middle name, we might have to think of another one for him. Rather than get too distracted by a ridiculous argument over whether or not to use someone’s actual middle name while writing history, the Board of Education should just use the facts and move on to focus on improving the quality of our children’s education. The local level of government seems to be just as divided and distracted as our federal government.

In the spirit of trying to stay focused, it is important we keep our pulse on the economy. Every few weeks we seem to get a new spin from this administration on what is really happening. The liberal press is still fine with bobbing their heads up and down and occasionally asking, “How do you spell epancipation?” It is even more disappointing to know the press actually receives labor statistics before the Bureau of Labor releases its data to the public. Yet, they allow Obama to continue distorting the truth about the economy, particularly when it comes to employment figures. The fact that any news agency would even print the words Jobless & Recovery in the same sentence, let alone as an actual phrase just proves how ridiculous this disaster has become. Who in their right mind believes in a Jobless Recovery? Ronald Reagan created 21 million new jobs, what the heck do we call that now?

As you can see, unemployment increased last month. In addition, minorities continue to get clobbered by this administration, as this administration is an equal opportunity unemployer. However, another piece of the economic puzzle, formerly known as the American Dream, is the housing market. You have to be a “right winger” or a “racist” person or organization to focus any attention to the unbelievable rate of foreclosures. Which greedy Wall Street broker or banker is responsible for the Community Reinvestment Act, The Mortgage Forgiveness Debt Relief Act or the Troubled Asset Relief Program? Oh yeah, that would be Congress. If you have the time, it is worth looking at who introduced the bills and how each member voted on them.

The Mortgage Forgiveness Debt Relief Act was enacted in 2007 and the Emergency Economic Stabilization Act came in late 2008, which enabled the Troubled Asset Relief Program in 2009. A picture is worth a thousand words, so could you describe the results of these programs any better than this (click on image to enlarge):
Focusing on the economy is not much fun these days. The Dow opened below 10,000 points today after experiencing one of the worst months of May in history. Unemployment is getting worse no matter how many Census workers the administration counts in the figures in any given month. Finally, foreclosures are continuing to occur at an alarming rate. Aside from becoming duly depressed, however, sorting through this information did lead me to one good thing. I think I have a solution to the Barack Obama Texas textbook controversy that will allow him to keep the same initials for his monogrammed cigarette lighter. Since he is the only person in the world that can pull off a Jobless Recovery, they can refer to him as Barack Houdini Obama! Alternatively, since he is overseeing record setting foreclosures in this country, they can refer to him as Barack Homelessness Obama!
