There is an old joke that if you asked Congress to design a mouse, you would get an elephant. But that pales in comparison to what would happen if you asked Obama to slim down the budget:

wow!!
Obama will give up to $8,000 or less if you trade in a car 8 years old for better mileage new cars.

Of course, this is regressive because Acorn members don’t buy new cars, and the price of junks will go up because my kids will go buy $300 junks and trade them in for $8,000, but, hey, its for the economy.

And you cannot raise taxes unless you give money away on brainless schemes.

Any time the government intervenes in the economy to “make life better” or to stimulate an industry, the government always does more harm than good.

Still I will trade in my 19 year old perfect condition car for a brand new one because after the $8,000 Obama is offering today I can get a brand new car for $11,000 to $12,000

Gee? Is that too good to be true?

Do you think GM and F will raise prices on new cars and eliminate anll the cash back incentives so that a Taurus that I could have gotten yesterday for

MSRP            $22,500
Cash back         2,500
trade in          3,500
Negotiation/      2,000

March 22, 2009   14,500
After Cash for Clunkers
MSRP             $24,500
clunker            8,000

April 1, 2009     16,500

So I will pay $2,000 more for the car plus $6,000 more in taxes
My taxes will go up to pay the $6,000 to Ford

Way to go, food stamp baby President.

Change you can believe in.

 Notice that in Oct Nov Dec of 2001 there was a 700 point, 51 percent  percent rally from the December 2001 low of 1387 up to  almost 2100.

That was a much larger rally than the current fools’ rally which is only 21 percent so far.

BUT the 2001 fools’ rally was followed by a 52 percent, 990 point drop down to 1108 on the Nasdaq index.

 The March 2009 low was 1265, and today the Nasdaq index is 1453.

 

My thesis is that this is a long term bear market. If I am correct than the current rally must drop down to the December 2001 low of 1450 and test that low before the Nasdaq market can  stay higher.

 

Most likely we will fail that test and drop to 1,000 or lower on the Nasdaq.

Personally, my family is 100 percent in insured bank deposits and short term treasuries. Munis are too risky right now.

Obama’s approach to “saving” the economy is pure Leninist Communism

The facts are that the “working class” in the US is really two classes:

First Class are the Democrats who both as individuals and legislators spend more than they earn and are deeply in debt

Second class are the Republicans who as individuals and legislators save by spending less than they earn

Inflation rewards the Democrats/debtors and punishes the Republicans /savers by stealing the value of our savings and paying us nothing on our savings and then raising taxes on our investment income

Inflation is a regressive tax that steals from savers and rewards debtors

And that destroys every economy

Inflation cause wars and revolutions and one term Presidencies.

Obama’s policies punish savings more than any President in history. Under “Change you can believe in” short term investments earn only 0.25 percent. That is less than the postage to send a check to the bank, and postage is going up while interest rates go down, and less than the gas money to drive to the bank.

CD rates for a year and longer only earn around 2 percent. Our savings cannot keep pace with inflation. China, France and Russia all want to dump the dollar because of the inflation Obama will cause, yet our savings earn nothing compared to inflation.

Under Obama, every dollar saved will become 90 cents, then 80 cents, then toilet paper.

So why save?

Exactly how is Obama moving us to save?

We lost more than half our savings in the stock market. Yes, there is a rally this month, but who can trust it to continue when businesses are closing down in every town at the same time that more jobs are moving to Communist China.

Perhaps Communism works better than Barackism Socialism? Communist China is not going bankrupt, but America is.

And to cap it off, Obama wants to raise taxes on any profits we might ever make in the stock market?

And Obama wants to raise taxes on interest and dividend income.

Exactly how is Obama moving us from borrow and spend to save and invest?

After all the clownshows in Congress, we have now learned that approval for the AIG bonuses were in fact added to the Obama Stimulus Package by Obama Staff Geithner.

To this distracting provocation, add Obama’s punch drunk performance on 60 Minutes, Obama’s insult to Special Olympics and laughter about the economic disaster on Jay Leno, and the Democratic Party financed and organized phony street demonstrations outside AIG headquarters.

The total money for AIG bonuses is too small to calculate. AIG is a meaningless circus. The bonuses are totally unimportant. But like a magic show, this irrelevant controversy is being used to distract us from the real action, the real mischief being done behind our backs while we look in the wrong direction.

The sum total is a giant clownshow of distractions, a SMOKESCREENto distract us from Rahm Emanuel and David Axelrod strong arming Congress to pass (A) the most Titanic socialist budget in all history and (B) the provision to let Obama’s Treasury Dept. take over companies that are not covered by FDIC Insurance.

Together, these tactics make Adolp Hitler’s Brown Shirts and George Orwell look like amateurs.

The Progressive Liberal Extreme Left and Obama are masterminding the biggest takeover of government powers and procedures ever imagined.

After Obamaniac’s $10 trillion of deficits destroys both our currency and our economy, the only “Crisis too good to not be usedabused” of worthless dollar in international trade, Obama and Soros will unite for One World Order, a single government and a single currency.

Then the UN will get its power to tax the entire world one percent (TO START ? ? ?)

Is the term “Global Warming” or “US Warming?” Obama’s new carbon tax is only on US employers. China and India, etc., get to keep on polluting, while Obama makes US companies pay a carbon tax.

So US businesses now have to pay yet another tax that their foreign competitiors do not, futher pricing American goods out of the world markets.

For Acorn members, let me explain that. The more anything Made In America costs, the less people buy it. People will buy the cheaper stuff made in China where there is no carbon tax.

This means less jobs in America.

It also means MORE GLOBAL WARMING because everything will be made in nations that have no pollution controls.

So why doesn’t Obama have a global tax on carbon dioxide?

Good work, food stamp president!

You found another way to reduce jobs in America and turn our recession into a full blown depression.

Go Obama Go!
