French “Supreme” Court Says NO To Unfair Taxation

French "Supreme" Court Says NO To Unfair Taxation

Even the French “Supreme” Court has enough legal sense that punitive taxation in the pursuit of socialism is wrong … are you listening U. S. Supreme Court Chief Justice Roberts?

French panel overturns 75 percent tax on ultrarich
Associated Press – 12-29-2012

Embattled French President Francois Hollande suffered a fresh setback Saturday when France’s highest court threw out a plan to tax the ultrawealthy at a 75 percent rate, saying it was unfair.
In a stinging rebuke to one of Socialist Hollande’s flagship campaign promises, the constitutional council ruled Saturday that the way the highly contentious tax was designed was unconstitutional. It was intended to hit incomes over €1 million ($1.32 million).
—-
Prime Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault was quick to respond, saying in a statement following the decision the government would resubmit the measure to take the court’s concerns into account. The court’s ruling took issue not with the size of the tax, but with the way it discriminated between households depending on how incomes were distributed among its members. A household with two earners each making under €1 million would be exempt from the tax, while one with one earner making €1.2 million would have to pay.

The French government approved the tax in its most recent budget, amid criticism by some that it would do little to stem the country’s mounting fiscal problems and would drive away the wealthiest citizens. 

Hollande’s popularity, meanwhile, has been tanking as the country’s unemployment continued its rise for the 19th straight month.

Favorite factual “Pull Quote” from the AP article – “… it would do little to stem the country’s mounting fiscal problems and would drive away the wealthiest citizens” – sounds familiar … don’t ya’ think?

Wreck-It Ralph Animated Feature Channels Ed Wynn

The recently released animated feature length movie from Disney Studios, Wreck-It Ralph,  is a really fun and high concept movie that can be seen with, or without kids (not good fare for kiddos under the age of 9).

The antagonist character King Candy, who is voiced by Alan Tudyk, does a pretty good job at channeling/capturing some of the voice expressions and sounds of a very famous character and comedic actor ... Ed Wynn.

Ed Wynn (L) and King Candy (R) side-by-side. Notice the bow tie, the stripes in the cloth adornments, the zest of hair, the fun of finger positioning, smile, and smallish "hat" each character image holds. One can not separate the influence of the voice-over actor from the animated character, and we are all the richer for it. Image Credit: Edmund Jenks - combination between IMDb (Ed Wynn in "The Perfect Fool," 1959 - ) and Walt Disney Studios (2012)

Modern Hollywood does not have many memorable iconic actors that embody the likes held by Ed Wynn ... check out Jerry Lewis' Cinderfella someday.

 It is reported in a Disney wiki that they had the animators use Mad Hatter from the 1951 animated film, Alice in Wonderland but had very little mention that it was the voice of Ed Wynn that actually brought the character of Mad Hatter to life.

On the voice-over and the visage of the animated character, the producers have done a good job at capturing some of what Ed Wynn brought to the big screen (even though Ed Wynn really never had a dark side).

King Candy, formerly known as Turbo, is the main antagonist of the film Wreck-It Ralph. He was the ruler of the kingdom in which the game Sugar Rush takes place. He is voiced by Alan Tudyk. King Candy is incredibly eccentric and flamboyant. Throughout most of the film, he portrays himself as a bubbly, yet somewhat strict, ruler. As Turbo, he was said to have loved the spotlight, but the moment that was all taken away, the racer became demented, and he was determined to remain beloved, even if it meant ruining another game.

This excerpted and edited from Wreck-It Ralph IMDb Storyline -

Wreck-It Ralph (2012)
Rated PG - 101 min - Animation | Comedy | Family - 2 November 2012 (USA)

Wreck-It Ralph (voice of Reilly) longs to be as beloved as his game's perfect Good Guy, Fix-It Felix (voice of McBrayer).

Problem is, nobody loves a Bad Guy. But they do love heroes... so when a modern, first-person shooter game arrives featuring tough-as-nails Sergeant Calhoun (voice of Lynch), Ralph sees it as his ticket to heroism and happiness.

He sneaks into the game with a simple plan -- win a medal -- but soon wrecks everything, and accidentally unleashes a deadly enemy that threatens every game in the arcade.

Ralph's only hope? Vanellope von Schweetz (voice of Silverman), a young troublemaking "glitch" from a candy-coated cart racing game - Sugar Rush - who might just be the one to teach Ralph what it means to be a Good Guy.

But will he realize he is good enough to become a hero before it's "Game Over" for the entire arcade?
[Reference Here]

As far as the central character, Ralph, some of us have all had times that we were cast in a place as Ralph and wish we could be something different.

Key line delivered by Wreck-It Ralph while visiting a 12 step style meeting: I'm bad, and that's good. I will never be good, and that's not bad. There's no one I'd rather be then me.

Also, the movie, while pretty ingenious and original, has moments where one thinks it borrows some of the programming used in another successful Walt Disney animated feature, Cars. A secondary character, Vanellope von Schweetz - voiced by Sara Silverman, found in another video game, Sugar Rush, loves to race cars in one of the central activities of the game world she occupies - Candy Land. One sequence in the picture features Vanellope racing around a track built by Ralph with Rihanna's "Shut Up And Drive" playing in the background, music video style.

It would be easy to envision Disney Orlando creating a section of fantasy world called Candy Land and install the same kind of vehicle racing ride Disneyland's California Adventure Park has with Radiator Springs and Cars.

RATING: 8.5 out of 10

Los Angeles City Council Unanimously Passes Meatless Monday Resolution

Anti-Established in 2003, The Counter® is the 21st century’s bold answer to the classic burger joint. Ushering in a fresh era of industrial decor, today’s music, cold beer, unique wines, cocktails, and burger options that are only limited by your imagination. Image Credit: thecounter.com

Los Angeles City Council Unanimously Passes Meatless Monday Resolution

Many in our society have “meatless Fridays” so what the secular left in our Government are trying to do is dilute a centuries old tradition … just because it can not bring itself to attach an additional, Government promoted secular meaning to what many in the Catholic faith are already doing (at least half-way) … giving red meat the day off!

Just why do Catholics eat fish on Friday – or, better said, why do Catholics abstain from warm-blooded flesh meat on Friday? The obvious answer that every Catholic should know is that it is a penance imposed by the Church to commemorate the day of the Crucifixion of Our Lord – to enable us (as a reminder) to make a small sacrifice for the incredible sacrifice He made for our salvation.

This excerpted and edited from New York Daily News -

Los Angeles City Council calls for ‘Meatless Mondays,’ cites health and environmental concerns
By Charlie Wells / NEW YORK DAILY NEWS - Saturday, November 10, 2012, 5:56 PM

The drive-thru capital of the world has declared Mondays meatless

In a unanimous vote, the Los Angeles City Council adopted a resolution encouraging residents to go vegetarian on the first day of the work week as part of an international movement aimed at reducing the planet’s meat consumption.

"Eating less meat can prevent and even reverse some of our nation's most common illnesses," Councilwoman Jan Perry said. "We've become disconnected in some ways from the simple truth that our health is directly affected by the foods we eat."
----
"We can reduce saturated fats and reduce the risk of heart disease by 19 percent," Perry said.

Environmentally, reducing meat consumption can shrink a community’s carbon footprint and help slow global warming.

Still, the city’s anti-meat motion doesn’t really have teeth: It is not backed by force of law and is merely a recommendation, but councilmembers hope it will encourage residents to take a few small steps to improve their health and the environment.

This move aligns the city with a larger meatless campaign launched in 2003 by affiliates of the Bloomberg School of Public Health at Johns Hopkins University. It has since been backed by 30 public health schools.
[Reference Here]

Why, then, is fish allowed? The drawing of a symbolic fish in the dirt was a way that the early Christians knew each other when it was dangerous to admit in public that one was Christian. Our Lord cooked fish for His Apostles after His Resurrection, and most of these men were fishermen. After He established His Church, these fishermen became “fishers of men” for the Kingdom of God.

Did you know that the Catholic practice of abstaining from meat on Friday was the reason for the creation of McDonald’s Filet-o-Fish sandwich? Because hamburger sales dropped off noticeably on Fridays, the owner of the franchise in Cincinnati introduced the new offering, and sales picked up again.
(ht: catholicism.org )

Sadly, many Catholics are not aware that the Friday abstinence rule is still in effect. Maybe the Government secular left should remind them through changing the day of their lecturing action of "Meatless Monday"!!

We, at MAXINE, believe it would be a nice gesture (changing Meatless Monday to Meatless Friday) that would allow our society to be on the same page - even if we are doing much of the same thing for different reasons.

General Motors Stockholders Vote To Change CEO Nov. 6, 2012

General Motors Stockholders Vote To Change CEO Nov. 6, 2012

In an age of government takeovers and crony-capitalism, the citizens of the United States are uniquely connected as partners in business.

Today, a poor earnings/profit report was released just six days before a national election is scheduled to take place - the election for President of the United States. The poor earnings/profit report was released by General Motors, which was taken through bankruptcy in a process that greatly damaged trust throughout the investor and business community ... a Federal Government takeover.

This action changed the ownership of one of the largest manufacturing enterprises in the world from one based on free enterprise to Government and organized employee Union ownership.

General Motors reported a drop in profit of 12% and in most business environments this would be a great cause for concern. As forced stock holders, every American citizen owns a piece of the company and the de facto CEO of the company is the President of the United States.

This excerpted and edited from Businessweek - 

GM 3Q profit falls 12 pct
By Tom Krisher - AP - October 31, 2012


A turnaround in South America and a rosier outlook in Europe helped push General Motors shares up in premarket trading Wednesday, even though the company's third-quarter net profit fell 12 percent.
GM said it earned $1.5 billion from July through September, down from $1.7 billion a year earlier, as European pretax losses widened and North American profits fell.

But South America swung to a big profit and GM posted better-than-expected results internationally outside of China.
[Reference Here]

This Associate Press release reprinted in Businessweek, however rosy, hides the fact that if we, as stockholders, are dis-satisfied with the direction of earnings and profit at General Motors, we can change the CEO November 6, 2012.

We can keep a community organizer, lawyer, law school lecturer (not teacher or professor), and current 44th President of the United States, Barack Obama as the CEO of General Motors ...

... or we can vote for an incredibly successful businessman and turn-around specialist who was born into the family of CEO of American Motors - George Romney, CEO, 2002 Winter Olympics Organizing Committee - Salt Lake City Olympics, and the 70th Governor of Massachusetts ... Mitt Romney as CEO of General Motors.

The choice seems pretty easy ... we, at MAXINE ask, what say you?

Hugh Hewitt's 100 Reasons To Vote For A 45th Presidency

It is time for a 45th Presidency - To this end, Hugh Hewitt has come up with 100 reasons to vote for Mitt Romney or against Barack Obama and these series of posts will highlight ten (or so) points to consider for your vote to have a 45th President elected come November 6, 2012.

Hugh Hewitt's 100 Reasons To Vote For A 45th Presidency 
... In 10 Easy To Digest Audio Files

On Monday, September 24, 2012, Constitutional and environmental issues Lawyer/Professor, nationally syndicated afternoon issues talk show host, Hugh Hewitt delivered a tour de force presentation for three hours on the reasons why we need a change in executive leadership in the United States. This change can happen with our vote for president in the 2012 elections which early voting has already started in many states, but will officially take place November 6, 2012.

In a presentation which Hugh Hewitt titled "100 reason[s] why you should vote for Mitt Romney and against Barack Obama", Hugh proceeded point by point, with full explanation and in no particular order, 100 specific reasons Mitt Romney would make a better president to lead our country, mixed in with the specific reasons why Barack Obama has not been a successful leader in the more than 1,000 days he has been president.

100 Reason[s] To Vote For Mitt Romney Or Against Barack Obama
Posted by: Hugh Hewitt at 8:12 PM


After yet another dispiriting Browns' performance yesterday [Sunday Sept. 23, 2012], I decided to redeem the day by listing 100 reasons to either vote for Mitt Romney or against Barack Obama. I turned that list into a three hour monologue on today's show -- the first such in 12 years of radio.

It wasn't hard to do. Not hard at all. Which is why I think Romney will win going away. The president is a failure, on every level and by every measurement. Americans don't endorse failure.
[Reference Here]

Since a three hour presentation of dense information may be a little hard to chew on in one session, here are ten postings that break up the 100 reasons in approximately 10 reason apiece chunks, that can be savored and digested, upon which one can become fully informed before making a freedom and country saving vote in this most important election.

Previously Published Audio Links (10 editions) Of Hewitt’s 100 Reasons To Vote For Romney And Against Obama 2012:

*** Hewitt's reasons 1-10 of 100 - LISTEN HERE>>
This edition explores reasons 1-10 which highlight: Governor Mitt Romney‘s posture on “American Exceptional-ism” and a second American century, character,  and turn-around knowledge-ability and compares this to President Barack Obama’s generosity, political bi-partisanship, and personal attacks on Paul Ryan as well as the war on religion (Catholic church).

*** Hewitt's reasons 11-20 of 100 - LISTEN HERE>>
This edition explores reasons 11-20 which highlight: President Barack Obama’s truthfulness and responsibility over our tax supported government spending and the programs it supports. The recognition of this 44th Presidency’s use of Czars and how disruptive this is to executive processes of governance. The tax investment in green energy and Solyndra. This Executive Branch’s use of power on labor relations and regulatory management. The Romney family that Mitt and Ann had created and raised. Mitt Romney can read and manage a balance sheet.

*** Hewitt's reasons 21-30 of 100 - LISTEN HERE>>
This edition explores reasons 21-30 which highlight: The pick of Congressman Paul Ryan as Vice President and his knowledge on budgets versus President Obama’s pick of … Joe Biden. Foreign relations, Israel, and its comparison with the Carter years. President Obama’s relationship with Israel’s Prime Minister Binyamin (Bibi) Netanyahu. America’s response to the Iranian “Green Revolution“, the “leading from behind” doctrine, Syria, and finally, the growth and influence of al Qaeda. America’s influence with China and Russia and how it has changed in four years.

*** Hewitt's reasons 31-40 of 100 - LISTEN HERE>>
This edition explores reasons 31-40 which highlight: From the muffed Russian relations “reset button” to the candid wink and nod between President Obama to Russian President Dmitry Medvedev, “wait until I get elected to a second term” caution captured on an open microphone … opens this edition of 100 reasons to vote for a 95th presidency in November. The placing in disarray the nuclear deterrent used by Poland and the Czech Republic. Obama’s abandonment of the newly democratic Iraq without a status of forces agreement and his continued fumbling of Afghanistan with a “date certain” withdrawal resulting in needless insider murders of troops. MOST IMPORTANT – This 44th President’s over-reaching draw down of America’s military power and position in the world by first reducing our Naval power to critical levels. Under Reagan, our Navy totaled 600 ships – under common agreement with Congress, this level had been set to be no lower than 313 ships – under Obama, the Navy operates only 282 ships and if given another 4 years is expected to become 250 ships. This Commander-In-Chief’ s elimination of a march toward air superiority with the killing of the F22 Raptor fighter jet – the elimination of 100,000 standing troops from the Marines and Army.

*** Hewitt's reasons 41-50 of 100 - LISTEN HERE>>
This edition explores reasons 41-50 which highlight: Mitt Romney’s very successful career at Bain Consulting and Bain Capitol where Bain Capitol had around an 80% successful turnaround rate at taking stumbling businesses and having them become profitable (almost unheard of). On a personal level, Mitt Romney gave a tremendous amount of his time and talent in volunteering for his Mormon Church as a leader and church community advocate. A review of Mitt Romney’s parents legacy and the impact this has had on the Mitt Romney family throughout these last decades. Mitt Romney has given over 30 million dollars in charitable contributions throughout his adult life. Barack Obama is legend for his side stepping issues that the corporate media characterizes as gaffes. From his “You didn’t build that” attack on self-interest free-enterprise, to his “blaming first” approach in discourse before ever assuming responsibility (if ever) … Obama trades on conceptual fraud in his approach to communicative leadership. This 44th presidency is probably most characterized, economically, as having run this government with NO BUDGET in over 1,2oo days and has put forth no effort to work on saving entitlements from their bankrupting path in nearly four years.

*** Hewitt's reasons 51-61 of 100 - LISTEN HERE>>
This edition explores reasons 51-61 which highlight: Barack Obama’s lack of truthful response about the facts surrounding the Fort Hood massacre. The President’s arrogance and posture (example: “Paa-Key-Staan” for the traditional Pack-ah-stan). As a leader, Barack Obama responds to emergency with paralysis … after paralysis, he then acts with panic and over-reaction. We have seen ill thought out gifts, given (iPod of Obama speeches to the Queen of England). Leading from behind has seen the assertion of the Muslim Brotherhood and Sharia Law.The Obama Administration’s record of hyper-spending and its effects are noted along with the signing of the Dodd/Frank legislation that has hamstrung how Banks need to be able to operate freely in any economy. Lastly – Fast & Furious and its cover up.

*** Hewitt's reasons 62-70 of 100 - LISTEN HERE>>
This edition explores reasons 62-70 which highlight: The Obama Administration still wishes to close “Gitmo”, have terrorists housed and have court trials here inside the United States in an effort to just criminalize terrorism (acts of war). In general, laws passed by our law making institutions, and require implementation and defense do not matter to this 44th Presidency – he continually circumvents laws he does not like to enforce with Executive Orders … or his departments just ignore them. Three to five Justices on the Supreme Court are due to retire over the next four years so one has to consider the results of a Obama win over a Romney win. ObamaCare, how it became law, and its disruptive economic cost. This President has established a TAX on inactivity and instituted “Death Panels” of 15 appointees (not elected by the people).

*** Hewitt's reasons 71-80 of 100 - LISTEN HERE>>
This edition explores reasons 71-80 which highlight: During the formulation of ObamaCare, Barack Obama and the Democrats did not take this opportunity to rein in trial lawyers out-placed power to bring malpractice lawsuits and end the restrictions on insurance companies as it relates to interstate commerce (to open competition throughout all states).ObamaCare CUT Medicare by $760 Billion dollars in order to fund other parts of the law that has passed. ObamaCare is NOT universal healthcare by any measure. Governor Mitt Romney has a proven record of being able to actually work within a partisan political environment. Romney answers questions and tells the truth – conversely, Barack Obama lied to get into office in 2008 (transparency, cut the deficit by 50% by end of first term, and etc.), takes many minutes to address any question and never answers with a YES or a NO.Loosing the Chicago Olympics and accepting the Nobel Peace Prize without any accomplishment are two activities that have a real understanding into Barack Obama’s character … just not the right things to do if one wants to actually be credible.

*** Hewitt's reasons 81-90 of 100 - LISTEN HERE>>
This edition explores reasons 81-90 which highlight: This Administration’s ability to cope with international economics and the problem of the Chinese Government’s manipulation of their currency is a prime example. President Obama continues to lie about the facts surrounding the Benghazi, Libya 9/11 terrorist attacks that resulted in the deaths of four Americans, one of them, a respected Ambassador. This 44th President hides from open questioning by ALL of the media and other open question town-hall settings. Obama will not appear on any Sunday or radio talk show venues (unless he gets snookered as he did with Univision Network last month). Barack Obama obstructs the path to school reform through his backing the NEA and its activities. GM stock is worth less than half of what this 44th Presidency paid for it with our tax money … General Motors is still not a success with the potential of 10′s of billions dollars still owed to the taxpayer.

*** Hewitt's reasons 91-100 of 100 - LISTEN HERE>>
This edition explores reasons 91-100 which highlight: The Obama Administration has increased the budgets of all of the departments of Government by 20% while our economy only grows under 2% with the policies that they have enacted. Barack Obama promised to cut government programs and in four years this Administration has not been able to find just one department out of existence. The EPA's expansion of new regulations on business, especially carbon-based energy has cost this country and increased the cost of energy by 100% since Obama took office. Unemployment has remained above 8% for ovsr 42 months straight ... thi in the face of nearly 2 Trillion dollars between the Stimulus and Omnibus spending bills that passed in 2009 with Obama's insistence that he needed to spend this money to cap unemployment at 6% or less. Mitt Romney has stated that he will slash the size of the Federal Government and address entitlement reform. The Government spends way too much due to its size against the taxes it brings in. It is a spending problem, not a taxation problem. Mitt Romney has committed to restoring our Naval strength by maintaining a fleet of 340 ships. Lastly, Mitt Romney will address the economic aggression and foul play of China.

As the "Chicago Way" Democrat Political Party is fond of saying ... "Vote Early, and Vote Often" ... but most importantly, vote informed and reviewing all of "Hugh Hewitt's 100 Reasons To Vote For A 45th Presidency" may at least allow one to open up a discussion with themselves, and others, as to what issues might be the most important in this upcoming 2012 election.

The New Yorker Magazine Performs A Disservice For The American People

The New Yorker magazine still compares the 44th Presidency with the 43rd Presidency - President Obama needs to be able to be compared with his record. President George W. Bush and President-elect Barack Obama meet in the Oval Office of the White House Monday, November 10, 2008. Image Credit: Wikipedia

The New Yorker Magazine Performs A Disservice For The American People

THE NEW YORKER ENDORSES OBAMA in a four-page editorial, "The Choice," by "The Editors," taking up the full "The Talk of the Town" space:

"Obama ... did not always prove particularly adept at, or engaged by, the arts of retail persuasion, and his dream of bipartisanship collided with the reality of obstructionism. Perhaps inevitably, the President has disappointed some of his most ardent supporters. Part of their disappointment is a reflection of the fantastical expectations that attached to him. ... But the reelection of a President who has been progressive, competent, rational, decent, and, at times, visionary, is a serious matter. The President has achieved a run of ambitious legislative, social, and foreign-policy successes that relieved a large measure of the human suffering and national shame inflicted by the Bush Administration. Obama has renewed the honor of the office he holds. ...

"The Romney-Ryan ticket represents a constricted and backward-looking vision of America: the privatization of public good. ... The reelection of Barack Obama is a matter of great urgency. Not only are we in broad agreement with his policy directions; we also see in him what is absent in Mitt Romney - a first-rate political temperament and a deep sense of fairness and integrity. A two-term Obama Administration will leave an enduringly positive imprint on political life. It will bolster the idea of good governance and a social vision that tempers individualism with a concern for community. Every Presidential election involves a contest over the idea of America. Obama's America - one that progresses, however falteringly, toward social justice, tolerance, and equality - represents the future that this country deserves."

Ignored in the four-page editorial, "The Choice," by "The Editors are the economic facts created by Obama Administration policies through the last four years:


The highlight of presidential townhall style debate was Romney’s thorough, two-minute dismantling of the Obama record on the economy after Obama gave a tepid defense of his awful record. Never has the case against Obama been made so eloquently:

I think you know that these last four years haven't been so good as the president just described and that you don't feel like you’re confident that the next four years are going to be much better either. I can tell you that if you were to elect President Obama, you know what you're going to get. You're going to get a repeat of the last four years. We just can't afford four more years like the last four years.

He
[President Obama] said that by now we'd have unemployment at 5.4 percent. The difference between where it is and 5.4 percent is 9 million Americans without work. I wasn't the one that said 5.4 percent. This was the president's plan. Didn't get there.

He
[President Obama] said he would have by now put forward a plan to reform Medicare and Social Security, because he pointed out they're on the road to bankruptcy. He would reform them. He'd get that done. He hasn't even made a proposal on either one.

He
[President Obama] said in his first year he'd put out an immigration plan that would deal with our immigration challenges. Didn't even file it.

This is a president
[President Obama] who has not been able to do what he said he'd do. He said that he'd cut in half the deficit. He hasn't done that either. In fact, he doubled it. He said that by now middle-income families would have a reduction in their health insurance premiums by $2,500 a year. It's gone up by $2,500 a year. And if Obamacare is passed, or implemented -- it's already been passed -- if it's implemented fully, it'll be another $2,500 on top.

The middle class is getting crushed under the policies of a president
[President Obama] who has not understood what it takes to get the economy working again. He keeps saying, "Look, I've created 5 million jobs." That's after losing 5 million jobs. The entire record is such that the unemployment has not been reduced in this country. The unemployment, the number of people who are still looking for work, is still 23 million Americans. There are more people in poverty, one out of six people in poverty.

How about food stamps? When he
[President Obama] took office, 32 million people were on food stamps. Today, 47 million people are on food stamps. How about the growth of the economy? It's growing more slowly this year than last year, and more slowly last year than the year before.

The president
[President Obama] wants to do well. I understand. But the policies he's put in place from Obamacare to Dodd-Frank to his tax policies to his regulatory policies, these policies combined have not let this economy take off and grow like it could have.

You might say, "Well, you got an example of one that worked better?" Yeah, in the Reagan recession where unemployment hit 10.8 percent, between that period -- the end of that recession and the equivalent of time to today, Ronald Reagan's recovery created twice as many jobs as this president's recovery. Five million jobs doesn't even keep up with our population growth. And the only reason the unemployment rate seems a little lower today is because of all the people that have dropped out of the workforce.

The president
[President Obama] has tried, but his policies haven't worked. He's great as a -- as a -- as a speaker and describing his plans and his vision. That's wonderful, except we have a record to look at. And that record shows he just hasn't been able to cut the deficit, to put in place reforms for Medicare and Social Security to preserve them, to get us the rising incomes we need. Median income is down $4,300 a family and 23 million Americans out of work. That's what this election is about. It's about who can get the middle class in this country a bright and prosperous future and assure our kids the kind of hope and optimism they deserve.
[ht: Breitbart]

One has to ask themselves, after looking at all of the facts (and there are many more that point to an overall degradation of the American economy due to the policies of the Obama Administration - Bond rating downgraded by two ratings agencies for example) how could the New Yorker actually say "that relieved a large measure of the human suffering" when this economy and its prospects for the future using the same policies will only make everyone's life more difficult?

This opinion and endorsement by The New Yorker magazine performs a disservice for the American people.

This edition explores reasons 81-90 which highlight: This Administration's ability to cope with international economics and the problem of the Chinese Government's manipulation of their currency is a prime example. President Obama continues to lie about the facts surrounding the Benghazi, Libya 9/11 terrorist attacks that resulted in the deaths of four Americans, one of them, a respected Ambassador. This 44th President hides from open questioning by ALL of the media and other open question town-hall settings. Obama will not appear on any Sunday or radio talk show venues (unless he gets snookered as he did with Univision Network last month). Barack Obama obstructs the path to school reform through his backing the NEA and its activities. GM stock is worth less than half of what this 44th Presidency paid for it with our tax money ... General Motors is still not a success with the potential of 10's of billions dollars still owed to the taxpayer.

In a presentation which Hugh Hewitt titled 100 reasons why you should vote for Mitt Romney and against Barack Obama, Hugh proceeded point by point with full explanation and in no particular order 100 specific reasons Mitt Romney would make a better president to lead our country mixed in with the specific reasons why Barack Obama has not been a successful leader in the more than 1,000 days he has been president.

Since a three hour presentation of dense information may be a little hard to chew on in one session, here is one of ten postings that breaks up the 100 reasons in approximately 10 reason apiece chunks that can be savored and digested upon which one can become fully informed before making a freedom and country saving vote in this most important election.

100 Reason To Vote For Mitt Romney Or Against Barack Obama
Posted by: Hugh Hewitt at 8:12 PM


After yet another dispiriting Browns' performance yesterday, I decided to redeem the day by listing 100 reasons to either vote for Mitt Romney or against Barack Obama. I turned that list into a three hour monologue on today's show -- the first such in 12 years of radio.

It wasn't hard to do. Not hard at all. Which is why I think Romney will win going away. The president is a failure, on every level and by every measurement. Americans don't endorse failure.

Reasons 71-80 Of Hewitt's 100 Reasons To Vote For Romney And Against Obama 2012

On Monday, September 24, 2012, Constitutional and environmental issues Lawyer/Professor, nationally syndicated afternoon issues talk show host, Hugh Hewitt delivered a tour de force presentation for three hours on the reasons why we need a change in executive leadership in the United States. This change can happen with our vote for president in the 2012 elections which early voting has already started in many states, but will officially take place November 6, 2012.

*** Hewitt’s reasons 71-80 of 100 – LISTEN HERE>>

This edition explores reasons 71-80 which highlight: During the formulation of ObamaCare, Barack Obama and the Democrats did not take this opportunity to rein in trial lawyers out-placed power to bring malpractice lawsuits and end the restrictions on insurance companies as it relates to interstate commerce (to open competition throughout all states).ObamaCare CUT Medicare by $760 Billion dollars in order to fund other parts of the law that has passed. ObamaCare is NOT universal healthcare by any measure. Governor Mitt Romney has a proven record of being able to actually work within a partisan political environment. Romney answers questions and tells the truth – conversely, Barack Obama lied to get into office in 2008 (transparency, cut the deficit by 50% by end of first term, and etc.), takes many minutes to address any question and never answers with a YES or a NO.Loosing the Chicago Olympics and accepting the Nobel Peace Prize without any accomplishment are two activities that have a real understanding into Barack Obama’s character … just not the right things to do if one wants to actually be credible.

In a presentation which Hugh Hewitt titled 100 reasons why you should vote for Mitt Romney and against Barack Obama, Hugh proceeded point by point with full explanation and in no particular order 100 specific reasons Mitt Romney would make a better president to lead our country mixed in with the specific reasons why Barack Obama has not been a successful leader in the more than 1,000 days he has been president.

*** Hewitt’s reasons 62-70 of 100 – LISTEN HERE>>

This edition explores reasons 62-70 which highlight: The Obama Administration still wishes to close “Gitmo”, have terrorists housed and have court trials here inside the United States in an effort to just criminalize terrorism (acts of war). In general, laws passed by our law making institutions, and require implementation and defense do not matter to this 44th Presidency – he continually circumvents laws he does not like to enforce with Executive Orders … or his departments just ignore them. Three to five Justices on the Supreme Court are due to retire over the next four years so one has to consider the results of a Obama win over a Romney win. ObamaCare, how it became law, and its disruptive economic cost. This President has established a TAX on inactivity and instituted “Death Panels” of 15 appointees (not elected by the people).

In a presentation which Hugh Hewitt titled 100 reasons why you should vote for Mitt Romney and against Barack Obama, Hugh proceeded point by point with full explanation and in no particular order 100 specific reasons Mitt Romney would make a better president to lead our country mixed in with the specific reasons why Barack Obama has not been a successful leader in the more than 1,000 days he has been president.

This edition explores reasons 51-61 which highlight: Barack Obama’s lack of truthful response about the facts surrounding the Fort Hood massacre. The President’s arrogance and posture (example: “Paa-Key-Staan” for the traditional Pack-ah-stan). As a leader, Barack Obama responds to emergency with paralysis … after paralysis, he then acts with panic and over-reaction. We have seen ill thought out gifts, given (iPod of Obama speeches to the Queen of England). Leading from behind has seen the assertion of the Muslim Brotherhood and Sharia Law.The Obama Administration’s record of hyper-spending and its effects are noted along with the signing of the Dodd/Frank legislation that has hamstrung how Banks need to be able to operate freely in any economy. Lastly – Fast & Furious and its cover up.

*** Hewitt's reasons 41-50 of 100 - LISTEN HERE>>

This edition explores reasons 41-50 which highlight: Mitt Romney's very successful career at Bain Consulting and Bain Capitol where Bain Capitol had around an 80% successful turnaround rate at taking stumbling businesses and having them become profitable (almost unheard of). On a personal level, Mitt Romney gave a tremendous amount of his time and talent in volunteering for his Mormon Church as a leader and church community advocate. A review of Mitt Romney's parents legacy and the impact this has had on the Mitt Romney family throughout these last decades. Mitt Romney has given over 30 million dollars in charitable contributions throughout his adult life. Barack Obama is legend for his side stepping issues that the corporate media characterizes as gaffes. From his "You didn't build that" attack on self-interest free-enterprise, to his "blaming first" approach in discourse before ever assuming responsibility (if ever) ... Obama trades on conceptual fraud in his approach to communicative leadership. This 44th presidency is probably most characterized, economically, as having run this government with NO BUDGET in over 1,2oo days and has put forth no effort to work on saving entitlements from their bankrupting path in nearly four years.

In a presentation which Hugh Hewitt titled 100 reasons why you should vote for Mitt Romney and against Barack Obama, Hugh proceeded point by point with full explanation and in no particular order 100 specific reasons Mitt Romney would make a better president to lead our country mixed in with the specific reasons why Barack Obama has not been a successful leader in the more than 1,000 days he has been president.

This edition explores reasons 31-40 which highlight: From the muffed Russian relations "reset button" to the candid wink and nod between President Obama to Russian President Dmitry Medvedev, "wait until I get elected to a second term" caution captured on an open microphone ... opens this edition of 100 reasons to vote for a 95th presidency in November. The placing in disarray the nuclear deterrent used by Poland and the Czech Republic. Obama's abandonment of the newly democratic Iraq without a status of forces agreement and his continued fumbling of Afghanistan with a "date certain" withdrawal resulting in needless insider murders of troops. MOST IMPORTANT - This 44th President's over-reaching draw down of America's military power and position in the world by first reducing our Naval power to critical levels. Under Reagan, our Navy totaled 600 ships - under common agreement with Congress, this level had been set to be no lower than 313 ships - under Obama, the Navy operates only 282 ships and if given another 4 years is expected to become 250 ships. This Commander-In-Chief' s elimination of a march toward air superiority with the killing of the F22 Raptor fighter jet - the elimination of 100,000 standing troops from the Marines and Army.
