but Congress won´t do it

President Obama´s weekly remarks Hi, everybody. Whether you’re firing up the grill, fired up for some college football or filling up the car for one last summer road-trip — Happy Labor Day weekend. We set aside Labor Day to honor the working men and women of America. And this Labor Day, we’ve got more to celebrate. Over the past 53 months, our businesses have added nearly 10 million new jobs.

If America needs a raise quit lying about inflation so seniors get a cost of living increase in line with expenses.

So Obama wants to raise taxes, regulations, and costs and give government directed money to favored, but inefficient businesses.

Further he wants to import huge numbers of non-skilled workers to drive down worker wages.

Only he would think that leads to more income to workers.

Between the obamacare mess, cost of food and
gas going sky high, electricity "necessarily becoming" too costly, and on and on there is no raise high enough to cover what obama has done to us.

America deserves an honest, decent and sane president but instead we´ve got Obama.

America deserves a president who puts the dreams, aspirations and futures of it citizens ahead of his radical, perversely shaped views of an America that needs "transforming".

America deserves a leader who understands why America is exceptional and who is committed to protecting and encouraging this exceptionalism rather than destroying it with regulations, socialism, open borders, isolationism and class/gender/race warfare. Unfortunately, we´ve have Obama, a president who is a tragic exception to all prior presidents.

America deserves better, but sadly it wanted Obama far more than it wanted America.

Nothing will get better until Obozo is out of office. I hope he moves from the W.H. to a prison cell. I know he never will, but many of his subordinates will be headed to Prison, maybe even the Atty General Holder.

We don´t need a raise. We need a massive cut in sending and new leadership from the top down. We are in a horrible spiral of inflation as seen in the stock market. $19xxx is not realistic. It merely shows how out of control the economy really is and how little the dollar is worth.

Increased value of a commodity is something added to increase its worth. I.E. a simple can opener when I was a kid cost just a few cents. Now an improved version in an electric can opener can cost many dollars

Inflation is an increased cost for the same item. I.E. That same simple can opener can still be purchased, but its cost is many times as much. That´s not a reflection of the value of that same product, but the diminished value of the dollars used to purchase it.

Using such things as the stock market or the number of jobs created as a marker of a recovery in the economy is the worst scale possible. Jobs created have decreased incomes by about one third yet the inflation has gone up in double digits. To say that´s doing better is a LIE!

There is so much demagoguery here it is hard to know where to start. Suppose all the businesses in america gave their employees a 50% raise. Many go out of business and their employees are looking for work. The employees who do not loose their jobs, have an insignificant increase in after tax pay. Obama takes credit for the increases and puts the blame that the after tax increases are not good enough on the employers, while raising taxes to pay for unemployment benefits in a different speech. No GOP "leaders" call attention to this connection and everybody gets poorer and wonders what is going wrong. Government wastes money because those handling it are not playing with their own money while Capitalism organizes the whole production, work and enterprise of society much more efficiently for the benefit of all. Government people like Obama do a poor job of organizing society, Waste is rampant, and manage to demonize the private sector for all of it. Demonize the public sector and hope in the private sector instead.

@#6: Obama stood between phony Greek columns in France before the 2008 election and declared himself a ´Citizen of the World´ for all to hear. What did people think he meant? Four years later the American electorate still hadn´t figured out what this guy is about and reelected him.

The Obama Decade will prove to be much worse than the ideology of the 1960´s.

As usual, the Liar-in-Chief speaks in incomplete sentences. What he meant to say was "our businesses have created 10 million new low-level, low-paying jobs while eliminating 40 million good jobs due to my stupid green policies and the unaffordable care act. Just wait and see how many Mexicans I can put to work in exchange for their votes."

President Obama´s weekly remarks Hi, everybody. I’m at Millennium Steel in Princeton, Indiana, to have a town hall with workers on National Manufacturing Day. Because in many ways, manufacturing is the quintessential middle-class job. And after a decade of losing jobs, American manufacturing is once again adding them — more than 700,000 over the past four and a half years. In fact, it’s been a bright spot as we keep fighting to recover from the great recession.

"I love you too, Wisconsin!" Sounds like Barack Obama´s standard speech opening after someone in the adoring audience on cue shouts, "We love you, Barack!" Except these days it isn´t Barack. It´s the other Obama, Michelle, the one who became suddenly so proud of America back in 2008 when her husband was first running for presidnt. To be sure, she´s still doing the goody-goody, Tide-clean first lady stuff that they all do with students, moms and kids. But Mrs. Obama has also again taken on an aggressive role for Nov. 4.

A couple of weeks ago, Barack "If You Like Your Health Plan" Obama assured Americans the penetration of the deadly Ebola virus into the United States was an "unlikely event."

Remember back in the 2012 presidential campaign when Barack Obama said things like: "Al Qaeda is on the run. We have decimated its core leadership. And Osama bin Laden is dead. But I don´t want Americans to think the struggle against terror is over. It´s not, by any means. We have a long fight ahead. By 2014, new terrorist groups may spring up and we´ll be back fighting in the Middle East." Neither do we.

The military salute is a simple hand gesture but loaded with tradition, honor, symbolism and packed with respect, both given and returned. It began in the days of chivalry when knights would raise their right hand approaching other knights to show they had no weapon unsheathed. The salute seems often to confound civilians without military experience, who see it as somewhat akin to a fraternity hand sign. Every modern president since Truman has had military (and saluting) experience -- except two Democrats. And both Bill Clinton and Barack Obama have had trouble with the salute.

Lurching on to the new week´s next news diversion, the Obama administration announced new regulations Monday to punish U.S. businesses that employ Americans, make profits and seek to protect the gains for shareholders, as is their fiduciary responsibility. The over-hyped administration moves came against so-called business inversions, a perfectly legal pro forma shift of corporate headquarters to a foreign country with corporate taxes lower than the United States´ confiscatory 35% rate. The goal was to crimp the economic appeal of such moves. Although Russia and North Korea would not be recommended, the money-saving

A presidential defeat isn’t an easy thing to bounce back from. And Mitt Romney did it twice. So it was understandable that after he lost the presidential race in 2012, he was adamant about closing the door to the possibility of a third campaign. But recently, speculation is whirling that Romney may not be so adamant anymore. When asked if he was running in a New York Times interview published earlier this week, Romney said : “I have nothing to add to the story. We’ve got a lot of people looking at the race,” he said. “We’ll see what happens.” That response, which

ATLANTA — Texas, America’s second-most populous state behind California, saw 13 of its last abortion clinics turn away women on Friday, after a federal appeals court upheld a law that practically guarantees that only a handful of clinics will remain open in the state. The strictest-of-its-kind Texas law requires abortion providers to build hospital-grade facilities and obtain sometimes impossible-to-get hospital admitting privileges. After signed into law last year by Gov. Rick Perry (R), the law forced most of the 41 clinics operating to close. Thursday’s ruling wiped out a brief victory this summer for abortion rights proponents,

It’s the “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.” A New York appeals court next week will consider whether chimps should have the same rights as human beings. The extraordinary proceeding is the result of a lengthy battle by animal-rights activists who argue that animals with human qualities — including chimps — are entitled to human protections, including freedom from captivity. Steven Wise, part of the Nonhuman Rights Project, which is leading the effort, will have to convince a panel of Albany appellate judges that a chimp name Tommy is a “legal person” to get him moved from a cage
