  • President Obama’s National Security Adviser, General James Jones, is leaving the administration this month. This departure is the fifth top-level adviser to walk since July.
  • Senate staffers will indulge in a two-day splurge of back massages, organic food testings, milk mustache photos, and other spoils next week during a Health Fair put on exclusively for staffers. While these men and women enjoy the best health care in the country contrasted to millions of hardworking Americans who struggle everyday, it is we the people, who are trying to make ends meet, who are paying for this Health Fair with our tax dollars. There will be activities running the whole spectrum of personal health. Vendors and service providers were not commented on and nor was the sum of money this will cost taxpayers.
  • The jobless rate is stuck in the proximity of 9.6%. There are 305,689,000 people in America meaning that 29,346,144 people are without jobs. If you average that by 50 states, roughly, 586,923 people are jobless from state to state. These numbers are one of many convincing lenses to look through to understand how ineffective and wasteful Obama’s stimulus packages have been. Health care reform will only worsen the situation at a full stride. The decisions Obama has made are rife with what seems to be contempt for this country and his change that he speaks of so often is…socialism…there is no other word for it.
1,972.8 miles to go.

  1. I'd be interested to know if any other president has pushed 5 top level advisers to the point they are willing to walk (or run!) away from coveted positions in such a short period of time. We as a public are kept in the dark about so many things (a perfect example being the cost of the health fair you wrote about) but I am sure that these advisers are seeing things we too would be upset about. They've walked. Now it is time for the American public to walk--straight to the polls.
