Obama not concerned

We hear that the fiscal cliff is looming. We hear that the United States is $16 trillion in debt.

On Nov. 19, NBC News reported that President Barack Obama gave $170 million to Myanmar (formerly Burma). Do you think Obama is concerned about the cliff or the debt? Not a chance. He can pull a rabbit out his hat and/or create another war to distract us.

Rocky road ahead.
