    Ack shully, Milady and I have been little affected in any direct manner by the knavish Kenyan’s ignorant and alien treachery. Our sources of income remain intact, although fixed while prices have steadily risen.

    But though the quality of our life has remained largely the same throughout his aimless, pointless, yet apparently purposeful demolition of what once was a powerful and proud society, his rudderless “leadership” has severely eroded the fundament upon which our grandchildren will have to construct theirs.

    He has disparaged American greatness, diminished American muscle, devastated American pride, devalued American coin, destroyed American businesses, and degraded American culture.

    No way can our grandchildren confidently expect to live safer, happier, richer lives than my wife and I have, despite the fact that we began in a 2-room apartment with unreliable electricity, no indoor bathroom, no automobile, no TV, and no phone.

    We had great fun, and I seriously doubt that our grandchildren can ever look back on “the good ol’ days” and enjoy their lives as much as she and I have ours. And that hurts us, and that I cannot forgive, because it is not an act of God or nature, but a deliberate shift in policy by a non-American fraud.

  2. One little perk I managed to nab: Cash for Clunkers. Not an awful thing for me, to be sure.

    I guess that I have been most directly affected by ObamaCare. Higher premiums, but at least my policy was grandfathered in (Barely! Otherwise, I’d have a $6500 deductible instead of a $2500 deductible) and I have been able to keep my long-time family doctor.

    Since Obama came into power, the price of food has gone sky high — related, of course, to the soar in gasoline prices.

    On a professional level, I’ve had to deal with Common Core standards, now incorporated in testing, curriculum, etc. — whether or not a school system actually signed onto Common Core. I’ve had to spend countless hours reading through materials and learning the new acronyms and rubrics for evaluation. These changes became most obvious about two years ago, BTW.

  3. Forgot to say…

    The unrest in Baltimore caused Mr. AOW to cancel our planned vacation there. Obama and his DOJ are at least partly to blame for the problems in Baltimore.

  4. Bocopro,
    Your last paragraph is the ugly reality.

    Mr. AOW and I don’t have children (actually, glad now that we don’t). However, I feel as if I’m sending all my former students into a void as they head out to begin college.

    In fact, one family has decided not to pursue higher education here in America. They’re now looking at Oxford.

  5. Sparky says:

    It would be too time consuming to pin point exactly all the ills we’ve suffered because of this Non-American ilk and the fools that voted for it. I guess the most devastating to date is the rampant inflation, high gasoline prices, zero interest rate and the near loss of all our medical care. Because of the antichrist’s zero interest rates, the middle class and retirees (that’s us) are disappearing. The annuity / savings we managed to acquire through many years of hard labor, frugality and savings is dwindling as I type these words. We are having to subsist on Socialist Security and a now ever increasingly small payment from said savings. I do not wish this man or his administration well. And this comment hasn’t even touched on what’s going to happen to the poor kids born today … OY!

  6. We have two nephews in the military so we worry about them and what they’re putting their lives on the line for. It’s depressing to know what our government is doing in our name around the world.

    Our children spend more time in school being taught to rat on their classmates for hurting feelings than learning to question and debate ideas–this isn’t an Obama thing but a climate in America today absent of leadership.

  7. Obamacare has eaten in to our income.
    Similar to AOW and others, I have a loved one with “fixed” repetative health care costs.
    My share of these costs, and the costs themselves have gone up.
    Due to Obama influence on the economy, my income has not risen except for a promotion of a few years ago.

  8. jerrydablade says:

    Economically speaking, we lost everything two years into his destructive reign. We’re back and doing fine, and he could never touch what really counts.

  9. Economically, Obama’s taxes, ObamaCare’s exorbitant effect on premiums and deductibles, massive amounts of new regulations, especially the EPA…. these have all adversely affected our company’s ability to grow and create more jobs. The taxes we pay personally, since our company is an LLC, when combined with FICA, Medicare and State taxes is 57% of every dollar we earn. None of this, however, is the worst thing.

    The worst thing is my personal loss of national pride. I am ashamed of my country and its lack of leadership and its participation in the dismantling of world stability. We’re supplying weapons to terrorists rampaging across the globe, killing innocent people everywhere they go – and they’re using weapons we gave them or left behind by us. We have blood on our hands.

    We’ve abandoned our allies, caused the mass exodus of Muslims from the Middle East and Africa by our withdrawal from the world.

    Our country allows groups to demonstrate on the streets of America chanting, “What we do want? Dead cops. When do we want it? Now!” We have been bullied into silence and told we don’t matter, that we are the cause of all this unrest and that the hard work we’ve spent our lifetimes pursuing are just unfair opportunities afforded us that should have been given to others. We are essentially told that everything we’ve produced would have been produced by others more deserving of the opportunities we took unfair advantage of.

    We are being disrespected and extorted by our own government and accused of racism, homophobia, sexism and selfish greed if we object. There is now talk of confiscating accumulated wealth to redistribute to “everyone” else. If this country continues down this path, I fear for its survival.

    I’m demoralized. That’s the worst thing about Obama to me.

  10. Imp says:

    FW….you said it all. I cannot disagree with one syllable. Just remember who the real terrorists are and who our enemy is. And they are among us.

  11. Imp says:

    When you have a Community Organizer for a President who is sympathetic to Communists, Socialists and Radical Islam, you have exactly what was promised us by those groups. Destruction of the United States from within!

  12. Baysider says:

    Obamacare – at least immediately.

  13. bocopro says:

    Rope, tree . . . some assembly required.

    And for Cankles, I won’t use the exact terminology he did, but I heard a man say this morning that the purest solution is a standard NATO 7.62 into the “dangerous triangle” at a 30 degree up-angle. Had difficulty arguing with him.

    Told him that a Perry/Cruz or Romney/Rubio combo at the helm with 67 GOP Senate and 250 GOP House would clean up a lot of sticky wickets.

  14. Mal says:

    Medicare and Social Security the most directly affected us. I feel for those whose lives, unlike us, depend solely on S/S because for the first time since it was established during the depression years of the 1930’s he has given no COLA increases. Not just once, but 3 times, and he has one more to go for 2017 because he will have established it a year from now before he leaves office. I wouldn’t have minded so much if he had also unilaterally cut expenses AND THE NATIONAL DEBT, AS PROMISED! But to cut entitlements to the elderly who have contributed to them while wildly spending us into the deepest debt in our history for who-knows-what, is criminal.

  15. Kid says:

    Large increases in med insurance. Hence large increases in all the products we buy, especially food. Middle Class pays all the taxes as they are a just another cost component of any business.
    The almost daily arrgravation My enjoyment of life. Stress being the #1 killer. I can get past it most of the time, but it’s always there lurknig. The big increases in social division/polarization.
    Then what everyone else said.

  16. Can I change my answer to what Fairest Witness said?

  17. Imp says:

    She’s the winner as far as I’m concerned…give her the $$$$ Alex…:

  18. geeez2014 says:

    Fair Witness…so well said “The worst thing is my personal loss of national pride. I am ashamed of my country”
    I couldn’t agree with you more….and I know we both nEVER thought we’d think this.

    Adrienne, too, with “Our children spend more time in school being taught to rat on their classmates for hurting feelings than learning to question and debate ideas”

    ALL of what you’ve said, everyone, is so poignant and I thank you.

    Jerry, i’m SO glad you were able to climb out of the having lost so much

  19. What’s really demoralizing is the fact that entrenched, career Republican politicians are no better than Obama & Democrats. They have funded every lawless program on Obama’s agenda; ObamaCare-fully-funded; Executive Amnesty-fully-funded; Common Core-fully-funded….. It’s appalling…. what do they think they were elected to do? If we wanted Obama’s agenda implemented, we’d have elected Democrats.

    So who, in the Republican Party, shares the Obama agenda, you ask? Well, the donors funding their campaigns, that’s who. Our Republican leadership has sold us out so they don’t have to fundraise like they used to. They’re lazy, corrupt, without principle and morally bankrupt! They now have hundreds of millions of dollars available to them if they get on board with the Obama global agenda. These big donors have bought both sides, so they get what they want no matter who’s in power.

    And how else have Conservatives been betrayed? Four powerful Republicans were read in and had oversight for the activities and events that occured in Benghazi. The Gang of Eight in 2011 would have included: REPUBLICAN Speaker – John Boehner, Minority Leader – Nancy Pelosi; REPUBLICAN House Permanent Select Committee on Intel Chairman – Mike Rogers, and his Democrat counterpart Charles Ruppersberger; Senate REPUBLICAN Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid; along with Senate Intel Chair Diane Feinstein and her REPUBLICAN counterpart, Saxby Chambliss. The Benghazi tragedy was a bipartisan FUBAR! Mike Rogers is gone, Saxby Chambliss is gone, Boehner is next, McConnell-who knows?

    Here’s what’s eating away at me: the Republican Party has been this way for decades and I just caught on recently. I’ve spent my entire adult life believing in a lie. The Republican Party leadership considers real conservatives like US, not Democrats, to be their opponents. We, the conservative base, are held in contempt. We’re considered obstacles to their being elected to continue the uniparty agenda. All these years, so much time and money, so much energy expended extolling the virtues of the Republicans…. and to finally realize they don’t believe in our values, they don’t respect us, they don’t want what we want…. so corrupt and demoralizing, isn’t it?

  20. geeez2014 says:

    Yes, it is, though I’m not quite as pessimistic as this…I do think that some of the younger Republican politicians are actually intent on making things better in America; more Conservative.
    I know…I definitely could be WRONG ABOUT THAT.

    Sadly, until we get MONEY out of the system of elections, we’re doomed.

    Germany gives an amount to each politician who achieves a certain amount of support from their party; that’s what they run on. Period. No lobbyists benefiting for having given money, nothing like that. They also have ID cards by which you vote; ONLY ONCE…it’s an impossibility to vote twice once that card is swiped.
    US? We’re like a Banana Republic.
    In Canada, the campaign lasted 79 days…..that’s IT. I was with Canadians this wknd and they’re stunned at our election process. But, of course, our election process fills the damned 24/7 news cycle and gets ads paid for for the cables and networks.

    GREED GREED GREED…….that’s the BIG WINNER

  21. Kid says:

    Fwiw, I agree 100% with FW. Every election is wham bam thank ya ma’am, see ya in 4 or 6 years and we’ll do it again.

  22. Mal says:

    So what you’re saying, FW, is vote for Trump because he is the only one who has even mentioned Lobbyists as well as his disdain for them. I also believe Dr. Carson would be ethical and hopefully resist any funding by them, but not certain. Trump is super-wealthy. Carson isn’t. “Money Talks”.
