In this blog I take down the American Inc. article called:
“The 9 Biggest #LibLies Obama Told Last Night”
January 29, 2014
American Inc. said: “1. Obama claims that “corporate profits and stock prices have rarely been higher, and those at the top have never done better. But… [u]pward mobility has stalled.” This has been refuted most recently by Harvard Economics Professor Raj Chetty who recently released a paper showing that upward mobility in America hasn’t changed since the 1970’s. This means that in the past 40+ years the chances of moving out of poverty in America have remained unchanged.”
But I say: You may have noticed that the they glossed over the part where Obama says that only the rich have got much of a wage increase.
American Inc. said: “2. The President continued beating his ‘war on women’ drum last night, using his often cited statistic about women making only $.77 for every dollar a man makes in America. The problem is this statistic is completely bogus. It isn’t just conservatives who are saying this, even the staunch liberals at Slate say the President’s figures simply don’t add up. After all, it’s just arithmetic.”
But I say: Numbers are used to lie so much that it is hard to tell who is lying. But even if we have equal pay for women there are several inequalities that we can work on.
American Inc. said: “3. While the President made a big show out of the minimum wage he failed to tell the American people that the minimum wage actually only affects less than 1% of the work force. That’s right, less than 1% of the American workforce earns the federal minimum wage, the rest work at a level above the minimum. While Obama might want to force this issue for political gain, he is lying when he says that this is a huge problem for the American public.”
But I say: I have a sneaking suspicion that many of the people in this country receive a wage that barely allows them to feed their families. If they are getting more than minimum wage, then it is not much more. The federal minimum wage is below the poverty line, so even if their number is small, it is a serious issue. It’s millions of people struggling to survive.
American Inc. said: 4. Obama claimed “more than 9 million Americans have signed up” for coverage under ObamaCare during his speech last night, a number that has been widely challenged in the aftermath of the speech. Observers have pointed out that almost 5 million Americans have lost coverage because of the mandates in ObamaCare. Others have questioned the number of Medicaid beneficiaries who are newly eligible due to the program’s expansion under the law. Obama’s 9 million figure includes a claim that 3.9 million learned they are eligible for Medicaid, but he admits some of those counted are actually renewals.
But I say: The Republicans just don’t want to pay for the poor to get health care. They listen to their rich contributors more than to the American people.
American Inc. said: “5. President Obama claimed to have added 8 million jobs to the U.S. economy last night to loud applause. The problem is, that claim only rings true if you ignore all of the jobs the economy has lost under Obama’s watch. The true number is well less than half of his claim. The President will continue to ignore this truth, however, because it goes to show that the economic recovery under his tenure has been the slowest since World War Two.”
But I say: The Obama administration started when the economy was falling, so W. is responsible for those jobs lost.
American Inc. said: “6. While Obama took credit for the rising domestic energy production he is lying by omission when he fails to tell the American people this energy boom has occurred in spite of his policies, not because of them. Much of the increase in domestic energy production has happened on private land, and despite the growing number of regulations that the Obama administration has heaped on the industry.”
But I say: Obama wanted clean energy, so yeah, the polluters don’t have his support. This planet needs to be a preserved habitat.
American Inc. said: “7. The Affordable Care Act, ObamaCare to most, is on its face a lie. While the President painted a rosy picture of his namesake last night, he glossed over the fact that it is not affordable after all. While monthly bills for health insurance have gone down for some (and risen for others), that is only one side of the equation. What Obama isn’t telling the public is that deductibles are going up under ObamaCare, sometimes doubling or even tripling.”
But I say: The insurance companies found a loophole, so Obama should close it. That doesn’t mean that ObamaCare is a bad law. I bet that the Republicans in the House of Representatives will stop him from closing this loophole.
American Inc. said: “8. While carbon emissions are not at the top of ForAmerica’s policy priorities, holding President Obama accountable for his claims is what we are all about. Last night, the President claimed the U.S. “reduced our total carbon pollution more than any other nation on Earth.” The facts show many nations reduced their emissions by a greater percentage than the U.S. has in recent years.”
But I say: Perhaps Obama meant that we had lowered the carbon emissions in the past year or several months.
American Inc. said: “9. On Iran, President Obama told the American people a flat out lie last night. The President said that Iran is now eliminating its stockpile of highly enriched uranium. While evidence exists that the Iranians, under the recent international agreement, have begun oxidizing their highly enriched uranium, a process that makes the uranium unusable. Obama failed to say this process is completely reversible, and thus, Iran has not eliminated their stockpiles at all.”
But I say: If I remember correctly, Obama said that he was trying peaceful negotiations with Iran—not that he had already solved the nuclear problem with Iran. He further said that he was not afraid to go to war with Iran if they did not stop.
Barack Obama delivered The State of the Union Address last night. I thought that the speech was relevant. But there were several lies and errors that I found in the Republican Response. So I made this youtube video.
The people voted for Democrats, but got Republicans due to gerrymandering. So yeah, the government is being partially run by several officials who most of the people didn’t want. And much of the population who voted for Republicans were swayed by commercials paid for by the elite. So money ruined our republic.
The North is communist and the South is democratic. Many of the lights that you see are paid for by the government, and most Republicans want to reduce government spending beyond what is prudent. They are assuming that social spending will leave us like a communist country, but that is not true unless the spending is so excessive that no one gets paid any more money to work harder and smarter.
I would like it, but I am concerned about how there are several people who do work hard and smart and still can’t feed their family.
I guess that it never occurred to Franklin that there were less poor people in countries that didn’t have aid due to them starving to death. He probably also wasn’t thinking about rampant unemployment due to outsourcing.
The Republicans said, “LIKE if you refuse to “shut up” just because liberals tell you to in 2014!”
And I said, “It’s your employer, right?”
I’d think that Republicans would be happy about the elite taking vacations while they are left to do the heavy lifting for paltry wages, because that’s how they vote.
Good thing Barack Obama is NOT a socialist. If he were, then all of the guns would be gone, there would be no more rich people in the country, and this picture would be barred from the internet. There is a big difference between government spending and full-blown socialism. If you want to be rich, then you still can be. If you want to do a job that you love rather than what you are good at, you have that right.
I agree with this. It sounds more libertarian than conservative.
The problem with capitalism is that companies don’t usually take good care of their own workers, since it is not in the interest of their own bottom line and low prices.
What we actually need is a third option. To expand the safety net of unemployment to those who are actually employed; that way, working will not be a bad financial decision. And people who do work hard and smart will actually have enough money to take care of their own families.
Seriously, if you want to stop illegal immigration, then you need to solve the root problem—poverty in Mexico.
I know of two books that are required reading for any genius. One is Mastery by Robert Greene. The other is Seeing What Others Don’t: The Remarkable Ways We Gain Insights by Gary Klein.
Mastery is a book about how to gain the experience and skills that are needed to be a genius. It dispels the myth that talent is innate, and it shows a series of steps to become talented. With Mastery you should be able to become whatever type of genius you want most to be. The book is also highly entertaining. Robert Greene teaches how to be highly talented using fascinating stories about real people who have become geniuses in their own field.
For those of you without much money, Robert Greene also has a free kindle e-book that is a supplement to Mastery. It is called: Interviews With the Masters.
Seeing What Others Don’t is useful immediately to anyone for gaining insights. Some insights can be reached without great experience and skill. As a bonus, Gary Klein walks the reader through the thinking method that he had used for learning about insights. You can extrapolate his thinking method to learn the principles from a group of stories.
Here is a link to my book called Proverbs of the 21st Century: http://www.amazon.com/Proverbs-21st-Century-Michael-Sebren-ebook/dp/B00CC6QII8/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1388550205&sr=1-1&keywords=proverbs+for+the+21st+century
Happy reading. I hope that you all become geniuses.
One of my favorite music groups is Metallica. They have put out several albums that have each sold millions of copies. My favorite songs by Metallica are:
Devil’s Dance; Until It Sleeps; Enter Sandman; Sad But True; Holier Than Thou; Wherever I May Roam; Through the Never; The God That Failed; My Friend of Misery; The Struggle Within; Battery; Master of Puppets; The Thing That Should Not Be; Welcome Home; Disposable Heroes; Leper Messiah; Orion; Damage, Inc.; Ride The Lightning; For Whom The Bell Tolls; Fade to Black; Escape; Creeping Death; The Call of Ktulu; Blackened; …And Justice for All; Eye of the Beholder; The Frayed Ends of Sanity; To Live Is to Die; Dyers Eve; Hit the Lights; The Four Horsemen; Jump In the Fire; Seek & Destroy; The Day That Never Comes; All Nightmare Long; The Unforgiven III; Carpe Diem Baby; Cure.
You can put any of the above songs into the search bar at www.youtube.com. Most of them don’t have music videos, but I’m mostly sure that they at least have the audio track.
I haven’t heard anything off of their newest album—Beyond Magnetic. I’ll buy that as soon as I get some money.
Their movie—Through the Never—was really awesome. You should definitely buy the Blu-ray.
Going fast causes mistakes sometimes, but slowness is usually worse. If you take your time and make a mistake, then you have little time to resolve the issue. If you speed through and are early, then you can go back and do a few dummy checks. A dummy check is a check for stupid mistakes. For example, if you multiply three-digit numbers and come up with a three-digit number, then you know that the answer is incorrect.
Also it may seem that going fast causes more mistakes, but that is not entirely true. When you start out going fast, you will make mistakes since you are not accustomed to the speed. However, when the speed becomes comfortable, the mistakes will become much less.
Perhaps slowness of thought seems advantageous. It’s not; it’s actually impossible to think through all of the possibilities when you think at a slow speed. Fast thinking allows faster response times and faster learning. It also allows you to question whatever you are learning.
Sleep is a notable exception. No one feels rested when their sleep is truncated. Power naps help tremendously, but they do not add up to the positive effect of a full night’s rest. Doing most things quickly allows for more sleep by leaving open more time.

This post makes me want to become a politician, so I can change the system.
By Pete Sisco
January 04, 2014 \”Information Clearing House – I’m not talking about the bank holding the mortgage on your home. Even if you think you own your home free and clear, you really don’t own it at all. You lease it from the State and it sets the terms and conditions that allow you to occupy the house or sell it to another lessee. The State owns the house and land in perpetuity and you can not alter this arrangement.
When I was a kid my dad bought a new four-bedroom house in 1964 for about $28,000. He had a good job and stuck his financial neck out by taking on a whopping monthly payment of $190 on a twenty-five year mortgage. He and my mom would talk about how when they got the house paid off they would not have to pay the $190 every month and…

I also like the book “Real Innovation”.
There are hundreds of books published each year with topic: Innovation. Many of them are strictly scientific, others are business or inspirational, but how to know which are worth to read?
My humble choice of books published in last 10 years is following:

I think that there are ways to detect homosexuality, but none of them are foolproof. And I don’t understand why gender roles are so important, except men cannot give birth.
I am tired of seeing the men of society getting this outrageous gay label for being feminine. I am tired of seeing females labeled as lesbians for being masculine. Men your body creates estrogen along with testosterone. Ladies your body creates testosterone along with estrogen. This means everyone has both a male and a female aspect to them.
So why do we jump so quickly to throw on a gay or a lesbian label onto someone? By making fun of someones male or female traits we are setting them up for relationship failure. I wonder how many men hide their beautiful female aspects to avoid being labeled? I wonder how many females hide back their male aspects? By limiting a person to gender roles we are limiting that person’s true being and soul. In a sense that one joke could be robbing that person of who he or she really…
