EMPTY CHAIR IN THE WHITE HOUSE MORE APPARENT DAILY
February 28, 2014
At one point in the last run for the White House by Obama and Romney, actor and national treasure Clint Eastwood stood on the podium while talking to an empty chair. He talked to a “missing president” while he asked questions. While Eastwood’s skit demonstrated that Obama accomplished painfully little of his “hope and change” in his first four years, the national press excoriated the actor.
Subsequently, Obamacare cost American taxpayers in excess of $678 million for the website at last count. Here’s a bright idea: give every American citizen; all 319 million of us, a whopping $2 million each so we could take care of ourselves.
Obama jumped food stamp users from 36 million to 48.1 million in 2014 within the past five years of his presidency. It appears that “empty chair” metaphor may go down in history as the most intelligent understanding of the Obama administration. Why hasn’t the Congress and president created jobs for 48.1 million Americans so they can feed themselves? Why do we keep importing billions of dollars of manufactured goods from China, which employ Chinese people, but leave our people standing in unemployment lines?
Did you notice this week that Afghanistan’s puppet president Karzai demanded the U.S. remove all our troops from Afghanistan soil. Any capable president would have taken that simple action once Osama bin Laden died at the hands of our military two years ago. We do not maintain any purpose in Afghanistan whatsoever.
How did 100 U.S. Senators, knowing that 14 million Americans cannot secure jobs, and another 7 million work minimum wage jobs just to survive, vote to increase legal immigration flooding into our country at 1.0 million annually—increase that number to 2.0 million legal immigrants annually? Did they understand that the final outcome would be 100 million immigrants added to the USA within 36 years? Did they care what would happen to our own citizens?
Did they care that we already suffer seven states suffering from water shortages starting with California? How stupid are those senators to vote for such incredible increases in immigration with the facts set before them?
For the past 50 years, via Lyndon Baines Johnson’s “Great Society”, we spent something like $10 trillion on poverty supporting black minorities, poor whites and Hispanics. Result: they multiplied in numbers with virtually no change in poverty rates. Over 13.4 million minority children live in abject poverty.
We repelled Mexicans at the Alamo, but Mexicans continue their onslaught and takeover of Texas, New Mexico, Arizona and California in culture, language and sheer numbers.
Muslims seemed to keep a small and low profile, but at 7 million of them in the USA, we inject jihad into our own country at an astonishing rate of speed. We now feature honor killings, female genital mutilation of young girls, arranged marriages of Muslim women and beheadings in our own country from Muslim immigrants. Is that crazy or what?
How can we solve other nations' problems by importing endless countries’ people into our country?
Like Alice in Wonderland, we seem to have a lot of contrary things going on:
How do we flourish as an economy by exporting jobs and importing goods from other countries?
How can we not protect our own Border but occupy and protect so many other countries’ borders?
How is our Medical system so expensive but provided free to illegals and refugees?
Why is our Department of Defense now present in 125 countries?
Why is Homeland Security so inconvenient for Americans while posing no obstacle to Terrorists?
Why are the most postgraduate students at MIT from Beijing?
If we have the largest energy reserves in the world, why are Americans going broke buying gas?
Why does a washing machine costing $1,500 come from Korea? That's around 5x’s what the US made machines used to cost. We invented it for heaven sakes!
Why is diesel now more expensive than gasoline? It used to be protected as our nation with our truckers, literally, runs on it. If diesel goes up, all deliveries cost more and all prices go up.
Nothing makes sense anymore. Our leaders make no sense. Our president treads water as if someone might save him. Our Congress works against the American people. Both entities refuse to enforce our laws. Both remain at odds with the wishes of the American people.
Congress suffers a 9 percent approval rating and Obama languishes with a 36 percent approval rating. Wouldn’t it be better if they carried out the job that we elected them to do?

This novel idea needs to be followed through: Obama and Congress need to serve the American people by stopping mass immigration, stop mass importation of goods from China, get our citizens working to make those same manufactured goods, enforce our immigration laws to take jobs away from illegal aliens migrants in order to employ our citizens at livable wages, get out of Afghanistan and another 125 countries, workfare instead of welfare and any other logical and common sense action to benefit our citizens rather than everyone else.
