The other day the Gunny got an email from JayPW and it involves a look at how the economy has changed under Mr. Hopey/Changey.

1. Avg. retail price/gallon gas in U.S.
Jan 09 - $1.83 Now - $3.104 (and rising) +69.6% change

2. Crude oil, European Brent (barrel)
Jan 09 - $43.48 Now - $99.02 (and rising) +127.7% change

3. Crude oil, West TX Inter. (barrel)
Jan 09 - $38.74 Now - $91.38 (and rising) +135.9% change

Hmm, could the Idiot In Chief meant that we’ll HOPE for the old days after he gets through CHANGING America? One wonders.

4. Gold: London (per troy oz.)
Jan 09 - $853.25 Now - $1,369.50 +60.5%

5. Corn, No.2 yellow, Central IL
Jan 09 - $3.56 Now - $6.33 +78.1%
(BTW Libs, corn is in nearly EVERYTHING we eat!)

6. Soybeans, No. 1 yellow, IL
Jan 09 - $9.66 Now - $13.75 +42.3%

7. Sugar, cane, raw, world, lb. fob
Jan 09 - $13.37 Now - $35.39 +164.7%

8. Unemployment rate, non-farm, overall
Jan 09 - 7.6% Now - 9.4% (more like 15%) +23.7%

9. Real median household income (2008 v 2009)
Jan 09 - $50,112 Now - $49,777 MINUS 0.7%

10. Number of food stamp recipients (curr = 10/10)
Jan 09 - 31,983,716 Now - 43,200,878 PLUS 35.1%

11. Number of long-term unemployed
Jan 09 - 2,600,000 Now - 6,400,000 PLUS 146.2%

So libs, it appears that the so-called genius that you idiots installed in the White House has done nothing but put America into a worse position since he and the First Grifter soiled the White House. Once again, for the slow-thinking, highly-incompetent liberal idiots out there, THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU ELECT AN INEXPERIENCED MORON AS PRESIDENT. In fact, the situation is getting worse because the LIES OF THIS REGIME are coming home to roost, i.e., QE1/2 are working, no-drilling moratorium, etc, etc.

EXCERPT: WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The recent surge in oil prices is unlikely to have a big impact on the U.S. economy, but could dampen growth and raise inflation if sustained, Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke said on Tuesday. Offering no hint that he was considering cutting short the Fed's $600 billion bond-buying stimulus, Bernanke told the Senate Banking Committee he saw increasing evidence that the U.S. economic recovery was becoming self-supporting. At the same time, he warned job growth remains far too anemic. (Gee, no kidding!)

Again, when you have idiots who parrot the party line vice thinking for themselves and speaking THE TRUTH, WE GET SCREWED! Bernanke is the same idiot who thinks that buying the debt from your right pocket, with money you printed up, er, took from your left pocket, is sound financial thinking. Oddly enough, it doesn’t work. Nor does printing up a barrel of money to buy back your debt. For example,

12. U.S. money supply, M1, in billions (curr = 12/10 prelim)
Jan 09 - 1,575.1 Now - 1,865.7 +18.4%

13. U.S. money supply, M2, in billions (curr = 12/10 prelim)
Jan 09 - 8,310.9 Now - 8,852.3 +6.5%

National debt, in trillions
Jan 09 - $10.627 Now - $14.052 +32.2%

So we have a dilution of our dollar, making our economy weaker, even as the Idiot in Chief has added 4 TRILLION in debt in just two years. BTW, our GDP is 12 trillion or so. It looks like we’re bankrupt folks but hey, the Left wants to KEEP spending! If the sh*t between their ears was currency, the libs would be swimming in money but right now, all it appears to be is that Liberals seem to think that they are entitled to our tax dollars in any way, shape, or form.

Yet, every day we hear the left yammer on about how good the economy is doing. "oh, we're almost back," or, "while things are weak, the economy is slowly growing." This regime said that the recession ended TWENTY MONTHS AGO! The Gunny smells liberal bullsh*t. In fact, everything that this ergime has put out on the economy getting better IS simply one big pile of liberal BULLSH*T!

How can Bernanke think that rising oil prices WILL NOT affect our economy. Can he really be THAT STUPID or just saying what the Idiot in Chief is telling him to because 2012 is getting closer? From the time a farmer plants to the time he harvests, it takes FUEL. From the time of the harvest to it getting processed and to the store, IT TAKES FUEL. We have to drive to work. We have to drive to the store. America RUNS ON OIL you dumbass liberal, yet we have a jug-eared clown who can only see HIS ideology (greeny-marxist), and to hell with the rest of the nation. As long as The First Grifters can have their date night, their $100.00# Kobe beef, Vail ski trips, Spanish vacations, free travel, Hawaii vacations, basketball, etc, etc, ad nauseum, screw the rest of America.

Good GOD, we are in a world of hurt here, the world is aflame, and all Barry Soetoro can do is CALL the Oscars and speak to the masses in a creepy-ass video, like he’s Big Brother and trident missile codes to Russia over the objections of our ally, Britain? If Barry is ANYTHING, he's like someone’s little sister trying to play adult in a suit. NUMBERS do not lie liberals, even as you all do. Oh, and NOT to be outdone, it appears that we get to bailout the lib’s slush fund in Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac AGAIN. Fannie Mae posted a loss of $2.4 Billion for the 4th Quarter of 2010. Since 2008 (Bush 43 is to blame here as well) Fannie Mae and its sibling company Freddie Mac have taken over $289 Billion in subsidies from the American taxpayer. They’ll be taking in another 150 BILLION or so yet again.

It appears that this regime and the myrmidons within are lying to the American people like it was going out of style inside the Beltway. As Fletcher said in The Outlaw Josey Wales, "don’t piss down my back and tell me it’s raining," but apparently, that is all this regime can do. In ANOTHER story, it appears that China has bought MORE of our debt than previously reported. Really? Now WHY would this regime sugarcoat, er, LIE, about that? Because QE1 failed? Because QE2 failed? Because the Stimulus Plan was nothing but a payoff to the unions who put Barry the Bungler in the White House? Because everything this cabal of ivory-towered idiots has done since January 2009 HAS FAILED MISERABLY. Unless of course, their main goal was the destruction of the United States as we know it. Then, fellow patriots, these bastards are right on track. This is what happens when morons try one UNPROVEN thing after another and try to use THEORY to replace reality.

Paging Darrell Issa.
Paging Darrell Issa.
You’re needed to investigate The Fed and Bernanke. (and the entire Obama Regime)

  1. I listened to Bernanke this morning. Damn near threw the dog thru the TV. Is Bernanke REALLY this stupid,or just plays the bit when he's on TV? Damn price of energy,be it electricity,motor fuel,what have you,is reflected in the price of absolutely EVERYTHING we use. Goddamn government grows dumber by the day. Witness the spewl coming out of the fucking CBC today. Saying the budget cuts set back civil rights? WTF,over?

  2. Well written article. I often say "we are all entitled to our own opinions, but we're not entitled to our own facts. The facts are the facts!"
    Good job of laying out the facts!

  3. Are all leberals just plain insane? I don't see how they can have one ounce of brains and say these stupid things, and have a stupid bunch of lemmings to believe it!!
    I have never been able to do math, never, but I understand that the things these drones are buzzing about is plain DUMB!!! I may not understand the figures, but I understand profit and loss. I understand that if you pay a high price you must pass it along in order to make a profit. We have a whole group of toddlers in the White House, someone needs to round them up and put them back in their play pens.

  4. Lessee. According to the current overpaid government bureaucrats (read worthless f*cks), if I need something, just write a check. When the check bounces, write another check to cover the first check and the bounce charges. Then open a new account, with no money, and write a check on that account to cover the other bad checks. On and on, you get the drift.
    I just don't get how this is going to work in the long term. Any libs out there that can explain to me how this works? Serious question, I simply dont understand this theory.

  5. clyde,

    At this point, I can only say that Liberalism is a mental disorder only curable with a .45 lobotomy.

  6. Liberal Stupidity,

    Rest assured amigo, I'll get a few nasty emails over it. No refuting of the facts mind you, just hate mail from mentally arrested developed libs.

  7. Nanna,

    This regime is criminally stupid. It makes me wonder WTF they're teaching these morons at Harvard, Yale, etc.

  8. Navyvet,

    Don't forget to keep raising the taxes to cover for the "math errors" of the Left! THAT is how they do it. Tax and spend, spend and tax.

  9. Paging Darrell Issa is right.

    Where are the investigations???

    Where are the BIG budget cuts???

    We have a big world of hurt coming soon.

  10. But...But...But Gunny!

    IT'S ALL BUSH'S FAULT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  11. No, Obama is not like the little sister playing adult.
    He is more like the gremlin in the Outer Limits episode where Shatner kept seeing him tear up the airplane...
    Sometimes I feel like the Shatner character...

  12. the time for action is past...it is overdue....when will we rise up and really do whatever it takes to overthrow those in office who are working for the demise of America? I am growing increasingly afraid that we have waited too long already and the damage is already done. what can we do, other than write about what we all know is going on? we need a strong leader to lead the way to restore America and overthrow the pinheads.

  13. Osama told us we have the greatest country in history. Now help me change it.

    Why would you change something that is already great? Well he has changed it. He has turned us into a 3rd world country. Damn the cretins who voted for this imbecile.
