Obama’s economic policies don’t work
Obama, the clueless one, hasn’t got a clue when it comes to economics. All of his policies and executive orders have utterly ended up as failures in the years since he has been in office.

To quote Michael Reagan, he has demonstrated that he can’t or won’t work with Congress, which is divided within itself. When he doesn’t get his way, he throws a temper tantrum like a little spoiled brat, and then threatens to issue more decrees or executive orders, like some dictator in a third world country.

In a recent tirade with Congressional leaders, he told them in this reply, “I got a pen, and I got a phone,” he uttered. “I can use that pen to sign executive orders.”

He just doesn’t get it when it comes to economic policies; he probably never will either. He’s a sorry excuse for a president if there ever was one.

No wonder America is going down the tubes. Or should I say the toilet?

Is God causing world’s disasters?

I am wondering about this weather we are having and all the people leaving this earth. Just remember all the plane crashes, ship sinkings, fires, avalanches, men killed fighting forest and house fires.

Could this be because of the over 70 million babies they have aborted since Roe v. Wade?

And kicking God out of schools, not allowed to mention Him, having men to guard that they never mention Him, no prayers.

Wonder what would happen if the temperature was to go to 130 or more during the summer. How would you grow vegetables and other food to eat and the animals where more food comes from.

I am wondering if God isn’t sending us fair warning.
