Obama got Bin Laden. OK, so what. That would have happened if Hillary or McCain were elected or even if George Bush managed to change the constitution and get re-elected. Actually there's plenty of evidence that Obama was dragging his feet and could have acted earlier. No matter I'll give him credit for plugging public enemy #1.
Poles clearly show the majority of Americans are against the Obama health care tax as written. Therefor the only other success that he can point to and is seen in all of his campaign ads that are not overt attack ads is his “saving” General Motors.
Naturally his biggest bragging point is the Chevy Volt since all of his other “green jobs” efforts were such spectacular failures.
The Volt cost over $700 million to develop. They cost $40,000 to build. They list for $41,000.
I guess it's a good thing they're selling so poorly since they loose money very time they sell one. That's not even taking into consideration the ones that are bursting into flames
So, we have the $50 million dollar GM bailout. $240 million tax payer dollars given to GM in the form of grants given out by the Department of Energy. $150 million went to the Korean company that makes the batteries for the Volt. So not even counting the $14 billion dollar loan GM got, each Chevy Volt sold costs the tax payers hundreds of thousands of dollars!
That's not even taking into account the tax money that will be lost in the form of tax breaks given to Volt purchasers!
Looking for a legal way to scam the government? Buy a Volt. This will qualify you for a $7,500 tax credit! Then take advantage of GM's 60 day return policy.
That's right! You can qualify for the tax break and then get rid of the thing before it bursts into flames and get all of your original purchase price back. The tax break is yours to keep!
Can we afford 4 more years???
Somebody recently whined I should just talk about sex and ignore the politics. To try and balance the scales here's my favorite recent events sex news: In New Zealand street signs are being destroyed by pole dancing prostitutes! Apparently More than 40 poles have been bent, buckled or broken in the past 18 months in south Auckland by prostitutes using them to pole dance!
A local board member was quoted as saying: "Some of the prostitutes are big, strong people."
WTF! Would someone from New Zelaand tell me where do you get your prostitutes!?! Are they cold war era Soviet Olympians? WTF are you feeding them?!? And above all get some pictures and post them. Some will enjoy the humor some will find them hot.
