The Dow sunk to its lowest point since 1997 yesterday, but President Obama says that’s a good thing if you’ve got some money to play around with on the stock market.

While answering questions from reporters today during a photo opportunity with British Prime Minister Gordon Brown, Obama took the opportunity to hand out some investment tips based on the old ‘buy low, sell high’ maxim: “What you’re now seeing is… profit and earning ratios are starting to get to the point where buying stocks is a potentially good deal if you’ve got a long-term perspective on it.”

There you have, it sound financial advice from a man who managed to double the nation’s debt in less than 6 weeks he has been in office.

The President conceded that he doesn’t get too upset over the “day-to-day gyrations of the stock market,” because he’s focused on “the long-term ability for the United States and the entire world economy to regain its footing.”

Comparing the market to political tracking polls, Obama told reporters, “You know, it bobs up and down day to day.”

Bobs up and down, he is kidding, right?

America’s Kidnapping Capitol

Hey New York, it look like Phoenix, AZ is stealing the title “the city that never sleeps” from you. No cause for alarm though as Phoenix certainly wont be taking any tourist dollars from your state, the folks in Phoenix are awake for fear of being kidnapped. Phoenix has earned itself the dubious honor of being the kidnapping capitol in the country and is working hard towards its goal of being the kidnapping capitol of the world, currently they have the #2 slot.

I am certain it has nothing to do with those hard working folks that illegally cross the border to work or your city’s sanctuary policies for illegal aliens and the drug cartels. Last year alone,there were more than 370 kidnappings – with extortionist purposes and with every instance including torture. For the moment, the kidnapping seemed to be confined to illegals battling over drug territory but how long will it be before they decide that kidnapping Phoenix citizens for ransom can be quite lucrative??

In an effort to combat the crime wave, Phoenix police have pulled more than a dozen officers off other assignments and created a special unit to handle the kidnappings, called the Home Invasion Task Force. The crimes are occurring across the valley and in all types of neighborhoods, authorities warn.

Politics Defined

A little boy goes to his dad and asks, “What is Politics?”

Dad says, “Well son, let me try to explain it this way: I am the head of the family, so call me The President. Your mother is the administrator of the money, so we call her the Government.”

“We are here to take care of your needs, so we will call you the People. The nanny, we will consider her the Working Class. And your baby brother, we will call him the Future.”

“Now think about that and see if it makes sense.”

So the little boy goes off to bed thinking about what Dad has said.

Later that night, he hears his baby brother crying, so he gets up to check on him. He finds that the baby has severely soiled his diaper.

So the little boy goes to his parent’s room and finds his mother asleep.

COWS

Is it just me, or does anyone else find it amazing that during the mad cow epidemic our government could track a single cow, born in Canada almost three years ago, right to the stall where she slept in the state of Washington? And, they tracked her calves to heir stalls. But they are unable to locate 11 million illegal aliens wandering around our country.

Maybe we should give each of them a cow.

THE CONSTITUTION

They keep talking about drafting a Constitution for Iraq . Why don’t we just give them ours? It was written by a lot of really smart guys, it has worked for over 200 years, and we’re not using it anymore.

THE  10 COMMANDMENTS

The real reason that we can’t have the Ten Commandments posted in a courthouse is this:

You cannot post “Thou Shalt Not Steal,” “Thou Shalt Not Commit Adultery,” and “Thou Shall Not Lie” in a building full of lawyers, judges and politicians…It creates a hostile work environment

The Plan

Now this has been incorrectly attributed to Robin Williams, the fact is the no one really knows who wrote this, except for the last statement, which is a genuine Robin Williams quote.  Bottom line is, doesn’t matter who came up with it, the sentiment is excellent!!

The Plan

‘I see a lot of people yelling for peace but I have not heard of a plan for peace. So, here’s one plan.’

  • ‘The US will apologize to the world for our ‘interference’ in their affairs, past & present. You know, Hitler, Mussolini, Stalin, Tojo, Noriega, Milosevic, Hussein, and the rest of those ‘good ‘ole’ boys’, we will never ‘interfere’ again.
  • We will withdraw our troops from all over the world, starting with Germany , South Korea , the Middle East , and the Philippines They don’t want us there. We would station troops at our borders. No one allowed sneaking through holes in the fence.
  • All illegal aliens have 90 days to get their affairs together and leave.  We’ll give them a free trip home. After 90 days the remainder will be gathered up and deported immediately, regardless of whom or where they are. They’re illegal!!! France will welcome them. Read the rest of this entry

It’s time for a serious wake-up call! The political system is corrupt and broken. It’s up to all of us to try and fix it.

Remember, it starts at the bottom not the top. The more pressure we put on our local reps. The quicker it will move up to the federal level.

545 PEOPLE

By Charlie Reese

Politicians are the only people in the world who create problems and then campaign against them.

Have you ever wondered why, if both the Democrats and the Republicans are against deficits, WHY do we have deficits?

Have you ever wondered why, if all the politicians are against inflation and high taxes, WHY do we have inflation and high taxes?

You and I don’t propose a federal budget. The president does.

You and I don’t have the Constitutional authority to vote on appropriations. The House of Representatives does.

You and I don’t write the tax code, Congress does.

You and I don’t set fiscal policy, Congress does.

You and I don’t control monetary policy, the Federal Reserve Bank does.
