Never in the history of America has a president talked more about creating jobs and done less to actually create them. If speeches could put people to work America would have the lowest unemployment on the planet. Unfortunately, unemployment continues to rise as a president challenging Herbert Hoover's place as the greatest job terminator in U.S. history continues to read from the teleprompter. Instead of looking at his own job-destroying policies – a failed stimulus, mounting debt, repeatedly raising the minimum wage, Dodd-Frank, Obamacare, and his continual class-warfare rhetoric - President Obama continues to blame our downward employment spiral on a never-ending laundry list of things only the truly under-informed voter could possibly believe have anything to do with the country's malignant unemployment rate. This list is laughable: the Arab Spring, ATMs, the internet, fiscal cliff "brinksmanship", George Bush, bad luck, and even the weather. When will he realize that socialism brings bad luck to everybody?
Crack cocaine is one of the most addictive substances on earth. It chemically alters part of the brain called the "reward system." The drug traps dopamine in the synapses between nerve cells in the brain, reproducing the feelings of pleasure we get while eating or having sex – a euphoric high lasting anywhere from five to fifteen minutes. But then the drug wears off, leaving the person feeling let-down and depressed, and creating a desire to smoke more crack in order to feel good again. Research has shown that monkeys addicted to crack will press a bar more than 12,000 times to get a single dose, and the second they get it they start pressing the bar for more. On New Year's Day, America inhaled deeply on something far more dangerous, destructive, and addictive than crack cocaine – government spending. House Republicans finally gave in to peer pressure last week and voted to approve a Senate "fiscal cliff" bill to be signed by America's biggest drug dealer, Barack Obama. The deal increases taxes $41 for every $1 in spending cuts.
