By your deeds you shall be judged

This week while BO was in Israel he was quoted saying Israelis could be certain of his commitment to Israel’s security by looking at “my deeds.”

He went on to say …”Just this past week, we passed out of the U.S. Senate Banking Committee, which is my committee, a bill to call for divestment from Iran, as a way of ratcheting up the pressure to ensure that they don’t obtain a nuclear weapon.”

BO is NOT on the US Senate Banking Committee. He didn’t have anything to do with it. He didn’t even vote on it.

Should we judge you by that deed BO? Because you knowlingly lied when you made that statement.

Do you really believe we’re THAT stupid BO?

 Let’s take a look at BO’s “deeds.”

Headlines started trickling out late yesterday that the committee hosting the Democratic National Convention in Denver has used the city’s gas pumps to fill up and avoided paying state and federal fuel taxes. The city also has car wash facilities being utilized by the committee.

Is that an example of acceptable deeds within your circle BO?

And all the while when they are finding ways to avoid paying taxes that the rest of us pay there is currently legislation in congress right now to raise the FEDERAL EXCISE TAX on GASOLINE by ten cents per gallon. That’s over a 50% increase in the excise tax from the current 18.4 cents per gallon now imposed by the Federal Government. It’s suggested that the EXCISE tax should be indexed to construction cost inflation.

Is that an example of acceptable deeds within your circle BO?

Last May, your staff put port-a-potties on the police memorial in Portland, Oregon where a flag was still set at half mast from an annual memorial service held five days earlier. Is there no respect or common sense within your circle BO?

Should we judge you by that deed BO?

What about the Mortgage Rescue Bill that you urged the President to sign, yet you never blew the whistle about the trial lawyers benefiting from it?

Should we judge you by that deed BO?

What about that bill to help the Congo that you introduced the same year you were elected to the US Senate? Should we count that as one of your deeds — to the tune of $52 MILLION dollars of our tax money?

Should we judge you by that deed BO?

How about the Global Poverty Act you recently introduced? $845 BILLION dollars is estimated to be spent helping other countries.

Should we judge you by that deed BO?

Shortly after you were sworn into office you introduced legislation for Juneteenth Independence Day. An annual event to celebrate with appropriate ceremonies, activities and programs the African Americans who had been slaves. Should we just surrender July 4th and replace it with your Juneteenth Day BO – because it sure sounds like you’re pushing for the same kind of celebration.

Should we judge you by that deed BO?

Through his political career in the US senate he hasn’t shown up 23% of the time. Would YOU still have a job if you didn’t show up 1/4 of the time to do it?

Should we judge you by that deed BO?

I agree with BO. Judge him by his deeds.

I implore my fellow Americans to look at his deeds. Don’t just read the headlines about what he plans to do. Read the legislation. A lot of the campaign promises he makes reference to are already going through congress. You might find that these bills that sound glowing on the surface aren’t what they appear to be. And while you’re reading the legislation, ask yourself “how and who is going to pay for this?”

My question remains the same…

Do you believe the government has enough of your tax money to accomplish what they need to do?
