Presidents day special: A look at past presidents and my effort to write the president

1 Of 3 / Faith Of The Founding Fathers / American Heritage Series / David Barton

Take a look at the three video clips by historian David Barton and his look at our early presidents.

I also wanted to point out that I  have been writing letters on a regular basis to President Obama and I am hopeful that he will take time to at least read one of them. He does take time to read 10 letters a day and to respond to them and I do respect that he is attempting to get a pulse of the people out there in the USA.

Two of the subjects that I have been writing a lot about is President Obama’s new proposed budget and his State of the Union Speech. Both of these subjects cover some of the same issues.

Along the way I have learned a lot of facts and figures. How about this from J.D.Foster of the Heritage Foundation about Obama’s proposed budget: “To add about $3 trillion more in national debt to the roughly $5.5 trillion he added in his first term.”

I was totally against the TARP bailout for the banks but Obama expanded it to cover the Automakers too. David C. John of the Heritage Foundation noted: The proposed Financial Crisis Responsibility Fee is a tax on major financial entities, pure and simple. If it were a fee, it would be assessed on those who caused the losses to the TARP program. TARP did lose an estimated $68 billion, but a check of the details shows that losses from the TARP program for the most part came from the automobile bailout, failed housing programs, and the bailout of insurance giant AIG. It is also important to remember that while the top banks all received money from TARP, the largest of them received it under duress at the insistence of former Treasury Secretary Hank Paulson. There is a bit of irony that certain banks were forced to take taxpayer dollars and are now taxed for taking it. If you give that type of money to a liberal like Obama he will find excuses to come up with more taxes.

I have posted many other times on the past presidents too. Take a look below at my posts on George Washington, John Quincy Adams and other famous presidential inaugurations.
