President Obama and the DOW

Looks as though the DOW wasn't all that happy today going way down!
But I found something fun, uplifting actually.  
First, Michelle Obama held the Lincoln Inaugural Bible for President Barack Obama today. That's good on many levels not the least of which is that Lincoln was a Republican president who freed the slaves below the Mason-Dixon line, not up North, ya'll. 
But then I read a few news articles around and about and guess what they are calling President Obama?  Amazing - this by Yankees - Bam!  No joke.  Bam to do this;  Bam to do that...
Does that mean they are just giving President Obama a new 'nickname?'  Or is Bam short for Bambi - as in 'deer in the headlights?"
Never know what these news paper folks are up to so I just accept Bam as the new slang term now being used to refer to our President Obama.  How crass! 
Here's the long and short of it.  Capitalism is so close to over at the moment in the United States that you'd be hard-pressed to find it.  How many "institutions" have been nationalized through these "loans" and "bailouts?" 
Don't even try to count them.  Socialism will not work, that is why China of all places is even tickling its toes in the waters of "capitalism."  The last single most important bastion of liberty in the United States - private property in the form of home-ownership was struck down by the Supreme Court in Kelo v New London, Connecticut.  Our homes are not ours and they are not safely protected any longer by our US Constitution.  The "takings clause" has been shredded.  Home ownership being sacrosanct to personal freedom and liberty was the bedrock of the American Dream, of free enterprise and of capitalism.  It is no more; not really.
I wrote earlier that the DOW would speak about our recent election and it seems to be going "dark."  Of course, the DOW does go up and down in cycles.  
I still believe in the American people as the creators of their destiny - not government.  To me, all we can do individually is our best to protect our families and whatever assets we have to sustain us with our reliance upon God.  Who knows!  Maybe a day will come when you can have a manger scene in front of a fire house once again in peace and love...  Emmanuel....
If we have learned nothing else, we must learn that we cannot put our "faith, destiny, and hope" in the hands of politicians...

Bam it may be for the media, 'Aitch' it will be for me. Yes, a bit petty, perhaps, but after all the years of hearing 'Dubya', I feel justified.

How true this is. I see bad times on our horizon. I still refuse to watch anything on TV that has to do with this election or obama. He has his shot now, so lets see what he does with it. I don't feel very confident at all, and hope I am wrong.

Awesome post. It was well thought out and informative! Just the opposite of my posts.

Obama as the savior will leave a lot of us high and dry. Look out for the hooves of the Four Horsemen. I think they are rounding the corner now.

Absolutely. And that's true worldwide.

Hi, Beach Girl--long time no post, hear or see.... Glad to be back.

I agree with your sentiments. The more I watch Obama, the more I realize he only operates towards one goal: the shoring up of his political capital.

I have a post on my blog here, which you're more than welcome to read.

All my best,

Sorry it took me so long to post comments. Good to hear from you. Been a bit down with the DOW.

Nearly Nobody's News - please add my blog if you are so inclined. I still have some house-cleaning to do at my sidebar.

We'll survive Bama but don't know where our retirement funds will have gone. I'm with Rush Limbaugh and have said it earlier - never thought I'd see a president work to destroy this country.

Bush 2 did open the door so he doesn't get away scot-free but neither does Jimma Carter and Congress.
