Top 6 ways Obama keeps you in the Matrix

And stocks that help wash the blue pill down...

  1. Devalues your life savings
    "Strong dollar, Strong dollar!" (the blue pill) Well then, stop printing more and more of them! The administration, while it harps over and over on the strong dollar policy, engages in the most anti dollar actions in history. (the red pill) Good thing I live in Canada.
    Buy some gold (NYSEARCA:GLD).
     
  2. Makes you need to move
    Job creation bill/stimulus/program/etc (the blue pill) But have you noticed the wealth transfer lately... from Americans to foreign countries creating jobs overseas? If you need a job, you need to go where they are. Foreign soils. (the red pill)
    Buy a multinational company like MacDonald's (NYSE:MCD), Coke (NYSE:KO), Caterpillar (NYSE:CAT) or Boeing (NYSE:BA).
     
  3. Supports fatcat bankers
    Fatcat Bankers... tough talk. (the blue pill) You too can be an fatcat banker worthy of million dollar bonuses. Just borrow at near 0% interest and lend at > 0% interest. Oh, and use taxpayer money in case things go wrong. (the red pill)
    Can't beat em? Join em. Buy Goldman Sachs (NYSE:GS), Wells Fargo (NYSE:WFC) or Bank of America (NYSE:BAC).
     
  4. Waves left hand about health care, and hands out money in the right
    At least this has a noble cause. (the blue pill) Make everyone have health insurance.... How about we try to make North Americans healthier and end the era of self entitlement? (the red pill)
    Buy some Wellpoint (WLP) or Johnson and Johnson (NYSE:JNJ).
     
  5. Forces small businesses out
    Ok, make small employers buy health insurance for employees or pay a fine. (the blue pill) And then we wonder why all our stuff comes from China... (the red pill)
    Buy some Walmart (NYSE:WMT)
     
  6. Makes SNL hilarious!
    Doesn't the Rock make a good angry Barack? (the blue and red pill)
    Buy some Comcast (NASDAQ:CMCSA)

Okay, in all fairness, this is more of a comment on the administration as a whole than of Obama. He's got a tough job to do, and while I have to wonder about his effectiveness in getting things done, he does appear to be the first President in a long time, that is actually acting in the interests of the people. Of course, one has to wonder about the unintended consequences of many actions...
