ON BEING A LIAR

June 29, 2012

June 29, 2012

Reader – Please note that a submitted letter on the Roslyn Country Club follows this article. 

Webster defines a liar as “a person who lies.”  And a lie as “to make a statement that one knows is false, especially with intent to deceive; to make such statements habitually.”  Now let’s see if it is appropriate to apply the term “liar” to Barack Hussein Obama (BHO).  Here are some of the facts that were drawn from my BHO files.  You can decide whether the following justifies sticking a “liar” label on BHO.

BHO:     “Our relations withIsraelhave never been better.  They are better than any previous administration.”

FACT:   Ouch!  Folks, lying is a way of life with BHO.  Its part of his modus operandi…it just comes naturally to him.

BHO:  “Our nation only possesses 2% of the world’s oil supply.”

FACT:  Present estimates are that we possess 26% of the world’s oil supply.

BHO:     “My administration is committed to creating an unprecedented level of openness in government.”

FACT:   This one is really a beaut.  He’s as guilty as Pelosi and Reed.

BHO:     “I think my initial measure of success is creating or saving over 4 million jobs.”

FACT:  How can this be if unemployment increased from 6.5% to 8.2%?

BHO:     “We cannot continue to borrow against our children’s’ future.”

FACT:   Duh!  The deficit is now $16 trillion.

BHO:     “In my wildest dreams, I never thought the $800 billion stimulus program would work this well.”

FACT:   Most Americans are still waiting to get stimulated.

BHO:     “This is going to be a transparent administration.”

FACT:   Really?

BHO:  “We cannot generate sustained growth without our deficit under control.”

FACT:   Why hasn’t he done something about the deficit if he really believes it?

The deficit is now increasing at an exponential rate.

BHO:     “A big part of our campaign was about changing the wayWashingtonworks – including the responsibility to live within its means.

FACT:   BHO did change it; it’s more corrupt and spending more.

BHO:     “Physicians collect $30,000, $40,000, $50,000 for foot amputations.”

FACT:   Foot amputation costs are in the $1,000 range.  (Three years ago, my toe surgery cost $300.)

BHO:     “The least of my concerns at the moment is the politics of a year from now.”

FACT:   His major effort since that comment has been to promote to the electorate his accomplishments?!*!  It has been one campaign fundraiser after another.  He’s a regular no-show at the White House.

BHO:     “I have done more than any other candidate…to take on lobbyists…They have not funded my campaign; they will not run my White House.”

FACTS: Someone please check his appointments (some of whom were forcefully dismissed) and grants to so-called deserving corporations (many of whom have gone belly-up!).  Also remember the SET union’s comment: “We’ve spent a fortune to elect BHO…$60.7 million, to be exact.”

BHO:     “I am proud that we passed the recovery plan free of earmarks.”

FACT:   There were over 7,000 earmarks!!!  He is either lying or just plain dumb.  It’s probably a combination of the two.

BHO:     “Washingtonwill have to tighten its belt and put off spending.”

FACT:   Anybody believe he’s put off spending?

BHO:     “I only saw Rod Blagojevich one time, and that was in the stands and from a distance at a Bears football game.”

FACT:   He met and talked with RB several times.  Like I said, lying is a way of life with BHO.

BHO:     “I passed 900 bills in the Illinois Senate.”

FACT:   He passed 26 bills – 3% of the true number.  Another gigantic lie.

BHO:     “I never practiced Islam.”

FACT:   He practiced Islam while a student in a Muslim school inIndonesia.

BHO:     “I was a Professor of Law.”

FACT:   He was a lecturer…about the same level as an adjunct lecturer, which is one step above a graduate student.

BHO:     “I want to disabuse people of the notion that somehow we enjoy meddling in the private sector.”

FACT:   You make the call here.

BHO:     “The last thing you want to do is raise taxes in the middle of a recession.”

FACT:   He’s planning on raising taxes on both the rich and middle class.

BHO:     “I don’t believe in bigger government.”

FACT:   Then why is our government expanding?

BHO:     “Nothing in this plan will require you or your employer to change the coverage or the doctors you have.”

FACT:   We have since determined that this is a blatant lie.

BHO:     “We have done more to advance the cause of healthcare reform…not because I believe in big government…I don’t.”

FACT:   Once again, why is government expanding?

BHO:     “More young black men languish in prison than attend college.”

FACT:   There are twice as many blacks aged 18-24 in college than in jail.  He obviously feels he can say anything he wants, even if it’s not factual.

BHO:     “I’ve laid out how I’ll pay for every dime – by closing corporate loopholes and tax havens.”

FACT:   BHO has had nearly four years to do some closing, but has done nothing to day.

BHO:     “A democracy requires accountability, and accountability requires transparency.”

FACT:   I guess Pelosi and Reed were not aware of this.

BHO:     Promised “line-by-line vetoes.”

FACT:   Not yet.

BHO:     Promised “tort reform”.

FACT:   Not yet.

BHO:     “The private sector is doing fine.”

FACT:   He’s not joking, is he?

BHO:     Promised to eliminate lobbyists.

FACT:   He had 11 on his payroll that the taxpayers were paying for.

BHO:     “Healthcare for all Americans.”

FACT:   Did he knowingly lie and deceive us when he claimed it was definitely not a tax?

BHO:     BHO and the Last Lady “never realized” about Reverend Wright.

FACT:   After nearly 1,000 sermons!!?*?!  Check Ed Klein’s new book “the Amateur” that the liberal media (NBC, CNBC, New York Times, etc.,) essentially refuses to acknowledge exists.  They must take us for fools.

Of course, there is more, but hopefully, you get the picture regarding Barack Hussein Obama, our President.  In the meantime, I ask you to think about the above and return to Webster’s definition of a liar.

Any comments?  Have I distorted the facts, as some have accused me?

NEXT POSTING:  The next article is scheduled for July 15th and will deal with the fact that                                     BHO is a Racist.

ROSLYN COUNTRY CLUB:

 

To the Editor:

The June 8th article “Deal would get town a new park” cites the town’s deal to purchase 7.3 acres of the 10-acre Roslyn Country Club.  It also mentions that “the 668-homeRoslynHeightsdevelopment hold exclusive rights to access to the club”.  However, it does not address the fact that the town has not made a “deal” to purchase those easement rights.  The easement rights in past years have been valued in the aggregate at approximately $10,000,000 or $15,000 per home.

Another issue is the approximately 250-car on-site parking area, which cannot accommodate a 1,000 family membership plus guests attending functions at the catering hall.  The facility is located in the center of a residential area, making it difficult and unsafe for the streets to accommodate both the additional street parking and the influx of massive traffic that will be produced.

Furthermore, the $1,000 fee (which does NOT include use of the tennis courts), is almost 4 times the cost for theManorhavenBeachPark($280, INCLUDING tennis) as well as the Clinton G. Martin Park ($250, INCLUDING tennis).  The exorbitant fee proposed by the town would make the facility an exclusive club rather than aTownPark.  Town parks should be welcoming to, and inclusive of, ALL town residents, and not priced so as to exclude the majority.

In addition, if the quest for a 1,000-family membership does not materialize, ALL town taxpayers, whether or not they have the financial ability to obtain membership in the park, will in effect be non-members paying additional taxes to cover the shortfall in order to subsidize those who can afford membership.

It should further be noted that the entire 10 acres of the Roslyn Country Club, by a Judgment of the Supreme Court, and affirmed by the Appellate Division, “shall be restricted so as to be used for no purpose other than a country club”, including allowing the building on the premises to be used for catering.  If the remaining 3 acres, which includes the catering hall, would remain privately owned and re-zoned to “commercial”, this would not only violate the court decision but would open the property to future undesirable development.  It was in the infinite wisdom and intent of the courts to have this property remain open space, and not have any portion of this property turned into a commercial venue.

ON BEING DUMB

June 15, 2012

Webster’s definition of the word, dumb:  “moronic and unintelligent”.  The following has been drawn from my Barack Hussein Obama (BHO) file; you make the call whether this guy is dumb or not.

BHO:     “No Keystone Project…at this time.”

FACT:   It could have been our pipeline to prosperity.

BHO:     “I am placing a moratorium on offshore drilling.”

FACT:  It costs the workforce nearly 100,000 jobs.

BHO:     Promised “energy independence.”

FACT:  My home fuel oil bill two months ago was $4.29/gallon.  Does he know the difference between “independent” and “dependent”?  (Please check Webster)

BHO:     Recently referred to the “Polish death camps.”

FACT:   There were none.  This is what happens to people who are dumb and egomaniacs.  He thinks he can talk extemporaneously and expertly on matters he knows nothing about.

BHO:     He chose not to comment on Pelosi’s statement, “We have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it.”

FACT:   One can only assume that BHO agrees with her.

BHO:     He chose not to comment on Communication Director Anita Dunn’s statement, “Mae Tse Tung is one of my favorite philosophers whom I turn to most for answers to important questions.”

FACT:   One can only assume the BHO agrees with her.

BHO:     A proponent of “Cap and Trade.”

FACT:  He is still pushing the bill!!

BHO:     “The truth is that compared to other countries around the world, our deficit problems are completely manageable.”

FACT:  Completely manageable?  Is this why our credit rating was downgraded?

BHO:     Bowed to the King ofSaudi Arabia.

FACT:  Why the need to bow to him?

BHO:     “Nothing in the surge plan will make a significant dent in the sectarian violence.  The new strategy will not prove to be one that changes the dynamics significantly.”

FACT:  He has yet to admit that he was wrong.

BHO:     The first president to employ a teleprompter during press conferences.

FACT:  This explains, in part, all the dumb statements.

BHO:     “marine corpse.”

FACT:  This is a constitutional scholar?  Imagine what the liberal media would have done to Bush if he made the same goof.

BHO:     “Islam is not part of the problem in containing violent extremism.”

FACT:  Not even part of the problem?

BHO:     His “economics advisors” are primarily academics with little to no business experience.

FACT:   Since the turn of the 20th century, past presidents had, on average, 46.2% of their appointees with business experience.  The range was from 30% (Kennedy) to 57% (Eisenhower and Reagan).  BHO has 7% with business experience.  This, better than anything else, explains BHO’s domestic failures.

BHO:     “I think that what we’ve seen is that we’ve been able to make steady progress to stabilize the economy.”

FACT:   Did he take Economics 101?  We are still in a recession with no hope in sight with entitlements and an expanding government.

BHO:     There are “57” states.

FACT:   This is a “constitutional scholar?”  Where did the “57” come from?  Perhaps he was thinking of a campaign from John Kerry’s wife and Heinz’s 57.

BHO:     “The Cold War reached a conclusion because of the actions of many nations over many years and because the people ofRussiaandEastern Europestood up and decided that its end would be peaceful.”

FACT:   Can he be this dumb?  Even the liberal historians have given the credit to President Reagan.

BHO:     Criticized theArizona(immigration) law while admitting he “never read it.”

FACT:  He admitted it!!  I believe he still hasn’t read it.

BHO:     SuedArizonaon the immigration law.

FACT:  What has happened to our country?

BHO:     An “amateur.”

FACT:  That is the word Bill Clinton used to describe BHO.  It’s a stretch, but isn’t that another word for dumb?  Refer to Ed Klein’s informative book, “The Amateurs” (under NY Times Best Seller List).

BHO:     “I would put our legislative and foreign policy accomplishments in our first two years against any president, with the possible exceptions of Johnson, FDR and Lincoln, just in terms of what we’ve done in modern history.”

FACT:   How about Nixon?  How about Regan?  This statement will be repeated in the Egomaniac article.

BHO:     This approach (of drilling) might make sense ifAmericaharbored plentiful and untapped oil supplies that could meet its need.  But such supplies don’t exist; we can’t drill our way out of the problem.”

FACT:   Only if you and an environmentalist.  The supply is there.  The technology is also there.

BHO:     Recently referred to the “Cinco de Quatro.”

FACT:   What a difference a day makes.

BHO:     Gave Prime Minister Brown inexpensive and incorrectly formatted DVDs.

FACT:  A classless and tasteless move.

BHO:     “The election will mark the moment when the rise of the oceans begins to slow, and our planet began to heal.”

FACT:   Another impossible to prove environmental statement from an individual devoid of the facts.

BHO:     Joked about the “Special Olympics.”

FACT:  Do you know anyone who would joke about it?  How many individuals and parents did he hurt and scar emotionally?  He probably thought he was being cool; what an idiot.

BHO:     Made reference to the “Austrian language.”

FACT:  There is no such language.  He could have been referring to the Australian language?!*

BHO:     “This is not me making wild assumptions.  Waste and abuse can provide the lion’s share of the money to pay for healthcare reform.”

FACT:   Someone please provide me with ANY BHO waste and abuse reform.

BHO:     “He’s a Harvard Grad.”

FACT:   So was Anita Hill “The Delilah in the Clarence Thomas Fiasco,” who was dismissed from a law firm because she wasn’t capable of writing a letter.  So much for diversity and a grossly overrated university.

BHO:     Just this week, he claimed, “the public sector is doing fine.”

FACT:   His people later retracted this statement.

Whaddyathink.  Can one make a case that the guy is legitimately dumb?  It’s your call.  But remember, if you conclude that BHO isn’t too bright, this (Barack Hussein Obama) is the same guy trying to transform both our government and our great nation.

FOLLOW-UP:

My thanks to many of you who have notified your friends about the Newsletter; the Newsletter’s base is increasing at a near exponential rte (not quite, but it sounds good).  There were responses to the “On the Budget Vote” article.   Thanks for the kind words.  However, I did hear from a couple who accused me of “inaccurate information.”  I followed with a request to detail the “inaccurate information.”  They refused and further accepted my offer to withhold their names, the content of their email, and my response, if they so desired.  I have done so.  Amazing conduct and mentality!
