"Trust Me" He Says?

After all the continual lies that have spewed forth from both Obama and his minions he is once again on the "trust me" kick. All I can tell you is "don't." Even the little things like a legitimate long form birth certificate plumb evade you and he wants your trust? Really? And then many are stupid enough to do that with a snake oil salesman whose whole life is a figment of someone's imagination.

So we went from "trust me" on the NSA humma-humma to all the numerous Obamacare lies that sold our health care system down the river, and you with it, to his latest tinkering with the economy concerning overtime compensation and his ink pen. Now this is from a man who hasn't a clue about running anything other than his mouth. If you don't recognize his moves to divert attention from the other messes he has created under his watch then you are dumber than a box of rocks from Omaha. Yes Virginia, they do walk among us.

There should be no wonder why Obama's approval ratings keep sliding. Captain Obvious himself can get a clear picture on how fraudulent Barack Hussein Obama really is.

This is way too obvious and actually transparent as glass. The problem is that this latest move is all about politics and nothing but politics. It's part of Obama's political plan to push income inequality citing the plight of the poor and middle class which he hasn't helped during the last five (5) plus years in the first place. He wants to push this issue into the November mid-term election cycle. The Democrats believe they can win on this issue. I don't have it happening with everything else swirling around this fiasco of an administration.

The problem with what Obama is doing is that he doesn't know what he is doing. He has no business experience, executive experience and is nothing but a strict political partisan. It does no good to change overtime rule one without having jobs to apply it to. So lets put the cart before the horse once again as Obama, being the ideologue he is, has the proclivity to do. All talk and no action other than using his "pen" to try to solve problems. The man has a huge ego and a small, narrowly focused mentality.

Lets watch a video and then go on.,

"Easier" From A Man Who Knows Nothing About Business

Lets look at the reality of what Obama and his ill willed advisers have dreamed up to make the unemployment figures we keep seeing totally bogus and a smoke and mirrors act. This will follow the same pattern with employers that Obamacare being shoved down our throats has wrought. It is but another incentive for employers to get rid of one full time job and replace it with two part time jobs. Doing this, from Obama's perspective, makes the unemployment rate go down with out really having to have a job created. Two people are now doing the job of one person. Another mirror relflection of the Obamacare effect. The unemployment rate does not differentiate between full time and part time employees, both count as "employed". You haven't achieved anything but more inefficiency. Obama calls that "easier"? For whom may I ask?

Bureaucrats and academics must stay up late at night dreaming some of this stuff up. It doesn't work in the real world. It does temporarily divert attention away from the numerous scandals, mismanagement and corruption attached to Obama and his Chicago political crowd. This latest "fix" has to have been dreamed up by people who have never run a business, made a payroll or or have the slightest clue as to how the economy runs. Obama admits he doesn't know much, if anything, about economics and he wants us to trust him? This is going to be another broken promise that will backfire on our economy once again.

His "War on Poverty" is a fallacy and he wants to play the violin concerto about raising the minimum wage because you can't "support" a family on the minimum wage. Fact is minimum wage jobs are usually entry level jobs and not meant to support a family. Of course Obama has never really held a job so take that into consideration as you think about him. This whole thing about telling private sector employers what they will or won't pay is total nonsense. Minimum wage jobs are meant as a stepping stone along the employment path, not the dead end. The unintended consequence, but not to any employer, is that the purchasers of labor are then allowed to cherry pick the pool of prospects with unemployment as high as it is. It's called supply and demand folks which this administration doesn't seem to quite understand. That cherry picking will leave out students and low skilled entry employee prospects. They're out there in the cold. Raising the minimum wage in a bad economy raises the cost of doing business which has other consequences besides Obama's political agenda.

How totally illogical our typical left wing eggheads can be. They want to require employers to pay people more money. So this is supposed to inspire them to hire more people that they will then be required to pay even more money to? Really logical I take it. But they then hire two people to work part time at 25 hours instead of that one doing 50. That avoids Obama's overtime penalty. But it does have the effect of more hires that I previously mentioned without accomplishing anything but more part time jobs when we need full time jobs to be created. So the one person who had their hours cut to 25 has their take home pay cut in half. Brilliant move!


Those workers probably won't see it like Obama and his minions do. They do the smoke and mirrors routine while the workers get the shaft. All in the name of what? It's called Obama's income redistribution plan and that is a proven historical failure just as his administration will be judged. It's an ongoing disaster in progress.

I often wonder if this President has no qualified advisers or if he just refuses to listen to their advice. I would hope he never writes a book on how to run a small business.

Mike - Obama has surrounded himself with elitist academics with no practical real world experience in the business world. You and I both have run actual businesses and understand the trade offs that have to be made when the government gets stupid. Which is quite often.

Well something more than Obama's smoke and mirrors has happened to America. Remember when Bush 41 said "Read my lips, no new taxes". Well when he lost the election the pundits blamed it mostly on that one "lie" because he later did raise taxes. If there was any truth to that "lie" losing the electiion for him what has happened since? Obama should have been bounced out on his ear for all the lies he has told!

Obama has seen fit to surround himself with idiots who think the way he does or are so in love with power that they keep their collective mouths shut. Every single thing he touches turns to garbage. He is intractable, inexperienced and rooted in the truly bad ideas of all the wrong people he met along the way. We are now paying a very high price for electing a total stranger with bad friends and relatives to the highest office in the land. If Hillary gets in, get that boat and sail away to Costa Rica! Up and awesome.

Trust THAT? You're kidding me. I would rather trust a king cobra. Obama is just as vicious and vemonous. He and the Marie Antoinette of a wife DON'T care about the country nor the American people. They feel that they are WAY BETTER-they are the creme de la creme while the American people are the hoi polloi to do with as the King/Dictator and the Royal Queen wishes. Obama"care" is a disaster. Even Liberals are beginning to HATE them. I hope the Dictator and Moocher Know It Alls get out soon!

At this point in time it should be evident to all that this phony is not only a liar, but a cheat and a thief as well.

My grandfather always said there is nothing worse than a liar, and 0vomit fits that bill perfectly. He is like a poisonous snake lying in the grass just waiting to strike.

By now it has become evident that he cannot be trusted in anything he says; and certainly not with anything he does or proposes to get done. Taking the law into his own hands is his major goal, and nobody and nothing is there to stop him. All we hear is "sign this petition" or "send money to fight that".

The man is a usurper, a fake, and an impostor who has stolen the Presidency and should not be there. One would think the various members of Congress who continue to resist this clown would have sense enough to collectively arrest him! As an illegally sitting president, he cannot be impeached; but he certainly can be arrested and held for trial!

All this garbage about "take our country back" is the talk of people unable to face reality. Our country is NOT COMING BACK, and talk of it doing so is sheer balderdash. Our country as we have ever known it is GONE! So either we give into this dictator and his cronies, or we stand up and simply say NO. Seek out your people in public office in your counties and your states and tell them to follow the prudent course of secession and nullification of every single law, edict, executive order, or whim this worthless excuse of a leader has designed to change or impose upon us.

@Breakfastpop, this Obummbler is going to take this beautiful country to uttter ruination. He is beyond incompetent. He is vicious and HATES this country. It is his intention to turn America into a socialist state. I, as a Liberal, have realized this. This "man" is anti-American and the LIEberal sheeple refuse to realize this, they are following him, singing his "good works"-what IDIOTS they are. We WON'T recognize America in 2016- it will be the WELFARE STATE!

Annette, it's a a shame more people don't voice the sentiments you just did because I know many feel that way but are afraid to spell it out. The legacy of this administration is the age of political racketeers: THE BARACKETEERS, elected officials and their cronies who engage in dishonest and fraudulent political practices and policies to gain and hold power!

It's surprising to me that Zero's poll numbers are as good as they are (39% approval this morning). It just goes to show how blindly he is followed by the Democrats/Liberals/Progressives who do not understand the real world.

It really is too late for us I believe, we might have survived four years but three more of deliberate demolition of this country...it is very hard to even have hope. He just keeps getting by with it too. Who will ever stop this man? Does he have something on the Republicans? How many things they have to chose from to get him on, yet never do they do a thing. I sure hope this suit turns out to be something...at least a start to open some eyes. ^

Obama has to be the biggest idiot in the world. Virtually no adult full time workers have to tolerate the minimum wage for very long, as once they are proficient (say, after 18 months), employers must raise their wages or the employee will move on and the employer will be stuck with the training expense. All raising the minimum wage does is lock more people out of apprentice level jobs, making it impossible for them to either earn anything, or get the initial training that very shortly leads to wages above any conceivable minimum wage. Essentially, all raising the minimum wage does is create more unemployment by depressing entry level hiring. This is really insane, especially when almost 25% of working age people cannot find skill-appropriate full time work.


Old Poolman profile image

Old Poolman 2 years ago from Rural Arizona

Stu makes a great point. Very few workers who try to learn stay at minimum wage for very long. Many trainees don't have the skills to even produce the income for the employer that it costs to train them. Another giant step backward in my opinion.

tsadjatko 2 years ago from maybe (the guy or girl) next door

That's all true but none of it puts money in the Democrats' pocket. What does put money in the party's pocket is the fact that union wages are pegged to the minimum wage - if it goes up by $3.00 all those wages go up by $3.00 and that helps the union's which then encourages them to give more to and do more for the democrats. Follow the money to figure Obama's motivation, it's never hope or change.


Stu 2 years ago

OP - Excellent point. Entry level pay often must be low to defray training costs. This issue usually fixes itself automatically after a year or two when the new entry level hire is proficient and the training expense goes way down.

Tsadjatko - I agree. And the unions aren't the only beneficiaries. Members of Congress perversely get votes from lower income people by raising the minimum wage, even though in reality these very same voters are being hurt by it. This is what happens when "low information" voters go to the polls. Progressives and lower income workers who don't "do their homework" before voting are bound to support candidates for the wrong reasons, and reject other candidates for equally wrong reasons.

In reality, proposals to raise the minimum wage are nothing but "vote gitters." When people have to start paying $15 for a Big Mac and fries they will finally understand.


Stu 2 years ago

OP - It's almost that bad now. Just go to Burger King, and get two small sandwiches, a large fries, and a coke, and you'll pay $13 including tax. These kind of meals were originally designed to cost about $5.00, but the energy component in producing food, and the severe drought in the Midwest, has pushed food prices through the roof. Then add in the 50% hike to the minimum wage Obama wants, and your $15 meal may be $20. When the customers stop coming, how many jobs will be "created or saved" when McDonalds and Burger King can't afford to even keep their stores open? I just don't understand why Obama can't see this point.

I'm thinking that Obama really does think people are going to trust him even after all the lies and deceit he has forced upon the citizens of this nation. Now I admit there are some really naïve people out here that believe every word he says because he is the President of the United States. They need to wake up. Some have but too many have not.

@Jackie, we are being screwed big time by this "abominstration. Obama"care" and other "social" programs are going to put this country into an even deeper socioecnomic guagmire. America is MUCH MUCH worse under Obama. Obama is furthermore making America the laughing stock of the world. Obama is a BIG DISASTER and a BIGGER MISTAKE! He clearly intends to RUIN and BANKRUPT America! So many deluded people wanted "someone different" for the presidency without consider the prerequisite qualifications. Oh NO, just put "someone different" in. How ludicrous is that! Obama is CLEARLY unqualified to run the White House. He has NO experience whatsoever! Yes, America has made ITS bed and now has to reap the reward of this ineptitude!
