The Single Best Decision Obama Has Made

Coal Mine USA

If the Chilean Mine Had Been in Colorado
Here-to-with, a hypothetical chronology.
Coal Miner Joe
Day 1:  Press Secretary Robert Gibbs meets with the White House press corps.  When queried about the possible cause of the collapse he indicates that it is likely the result of the lax enforcement of mine safety rules by the previous administration. 

Day 19:  EPA Director Carol Browner reports that the construction of a road to the proposed bore location will require an Environmental Impact Statement.  She promises an expedited review, one that perhaps could be completed within 60 to 90 days.

Day 51:  At the urging of President Obama, the House passes bill that establishes the Mine Safety Regulatory Agency (MRSA).  The bill authorizes the expenditure of $10 billion on mine safety issues.  The actual expenditure on mine safety consists of a $50,000 grant to researchers at UCLA to study the effects of sunlight deprivation on the libido of South African diamond miners.  The balance is for grants that allow individual states to defer dealing with unfunded public employee retirement benefit obligations
Day 69:  The world watches as the first miner is lifted to the surface.  Vice President Biden is on hand.  As the first miner exits the rescue capsule, the Vice President welcomes him back to "Wyoming" and implores him to take off his sunglasses so that the world can see his smiling face.  Unfortunately, President Obama is not able to attend.  He needs to complete his round of golf early so he can see Michelle and friends off on their three-week trip to Spain.

Received this in an e-mail from a friend, and thought it worth passing on.  Might save a life.


Thank  God for the sense to remember the '3' steps, STR  . Read and Learn!

  Sometimes symptoms of a  stroke are difficult to identify. Unfortunately,  the lack of awareness spells disaster. The  stroke victim may suffer severe brain damage  when people nearby fail to recognize the  symptoms of a stroke.

  Now doctors say a  bystander can recognize a stroke by asking three  simple questions:

S  *Ask  the individual to SMILE.

T  *Ask  the person to TALK and SPEAK A SIMPLE SENTENCE  (Coherently)

(i.e. It is sunny out  today.)

R  *Ask  him or her to RAISE BOTH  ARMS.

  If  he or she has trouble with ANY ONE of these  tasks, call emergency number immediately  and describe the symptoms to the  dispatcher.

  New  Sign o f a Stroke -------- Stick out Your  Tongue

  NOTE:  Another 'sign' of a stroke is this: Ask the  person to 'stick' out his tongue.. If the tongue  is 'crooked', if it goes to one side or the  other,   that is  also an indication of a  stroke.

Barbarian at the Gate
1998: Sec. Cuomo pushes 'affirmative action' mortgage loan policy

smoking gun Yet more video evidence that the Clinton Administration was the nexus for the subprime mortgae failure that's brought this nation to its knees. As reward for his part in the scheme, Cuomo thinks he should  be governor of New York.
President Bill Clinton's Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Andrew Cuomo answered questions in 1998 at a press conference regarding HUD policy that would ensure that banks could not discriminate against low-income minorities when considering individuals from this group for housing loans.

    "To take a greater risk on these mortgages...yes. To give families mortgages they who they would not have given otherwise?...yes."

Mr. Cuomo is then asked if this people in this group could have gotten the loans at all in the first place. In a telling response, he answers:

    "They would not have qualified, but for this affirmative action on the part of the bank...yes."

Mr. Cuomo then confirms for a reporter that the affirmative action is indeed for minorities and that he expects the default rate to be higher than the rest of the portfolio:

    "It income it is mostly by minorities...yes.

    With the $2.1 billion lending that amount in mortgages which will be a higher risk and I'm sure there will be a higher default rate on those mortgages than the rest of the portfolio."
