There he was again on TV telling us he is on the side of “us” and taking on the forces of evil. Search your political memory. Do you recall any president or major political leader ever spending so much time demonizing business, citizens that do not agree with them politically, or generally on the attack against any entity that may disagree?
Obama paints his job as president as if he is our watchdog. Truth is he is what our watchdogs should be looking out for! At almost every speaking event it sounds like a stump speech from him, but after all, stumping is the only thing Obama does well. And man does it rile me to hear him demonize every traditional entity in this nation. Obama speaks at every turn as if he is the lone watchman holding at bay these imaginary forces of evil.
It feels to me as if Obama knows one thing and only one thing – to pit his constituency against big oil, big Wal-Mart and essentially everything. He portrays every disagreeing entity as being against the American people, greedy, etc. It’s insane. The only ones against me are Obama and his sycophants.
Oil companies provide a product and service at huge expense to them. They provide refined gasoline at prices still less than a gallon of milk. Hell, gas is cheaper per gallon than most bottled waters, and they are ripping someone off? That is tripe, ignorance and a talking point repeated by fools. How hard is it to bottle water flowing out of a spring fer Heaven’s sake? Oil is damned hard to find, retrieve, refine and transport. Add in the expense of building a gas station and all that and STILL it’s cheaper per gallon than water or milk. No, I am not a friend of oil companies but a gallon of gas is cheaper than bottled water or milk, so . . . .
Wal Mart provides a service – goods and merchandise sold at rather low prices overall. Do people make others go there to shop? Puts mom and pop outta business, ya say? Well that’s how market’s work, dolts! If a new guy can do what you do better, cheaper, more efficiently or more attractive to consumers for whatever reason, as long as they are not guilty of law breaking (I know lefties, Wal Mart colludes, etc. BS.) then what is the problem? It’s called innovation and capitalism. And now we get to the real culprit in the small minds of Obama and his pals – CAPITALISM!
Lefties and Obama specifically spend a huge amount of hot air attacking capitalism. No matter that no other system provides more wealth for more people than does capitalism. Forget that capitalism is what made and still makes, this nation. Forget that most of us, much to Obama’s and the lefties’ chagrin, work for private business, thus we are employed by capitalism! Duh, fools!
Reality dictates the truth here. Leftists have deep seeded interests and power bases that reside in pretending they are all for the less fortunate, yet despite decade after decade of leftist support, to hear them tell it, things are worse than ever. Unions are less than 10% of the US workforce, but lefties lay all their eggs in that basket. Why? Because it plays to their Marxist origins – proletariat and that Marxist nonsense. Notice how lefties scream for collective bargaining, yet the more leftist a society is the less unions there are. Cuba, the USSR, China, Venezuela, Vietnam, North Korea . . . lots of union employees huh? NOT A ONE! Odd, no?
Don’t these people get that their sycophant going along is them being used? Does the plight of the less fortunate improve under extreme leftist systems? No. The less fortunate in this nation are still better off than the middle class in most of the third world, yet since for a leftist that reality does not bolster their cause, it is ignored.
Leftists play to the underclasses for support, yet when leftists seize power the underclasses are still the underclasses, but it’s too late then. What really kills me is the idiots who follow along having seemingly zero book learning. If they knew any REAL and UNVARNISHED political, social and economic history they would know Keynesian economies don’t work in practice, but they look good on paper.
Government does not create wealth. They do not produce anything, so growing government is a dead cert recipe for economic failure. But for oil and resource rich or tiny insular societies, government cannot provide too awful much to citizens. Government needs money to operate and give the handouts. Since government DOES NOT TAX ITSELF, and in fact is immune by law from taxation, where will the tax revenue come from for government to operate and hold the citizens in perpetual beholding to them?
Again, unless one lives in an oil or mineral resource wealthy nation, or Switzerland or some nation that has exclusive access to some commodity the world demands, where will the revenue for government to operate come from? Make this argument to a lefty and suddenly they claim they are not against capitalism, merely the mean, unfair players – big oil and big Wal mart, etc. It’s truly the argument of the bereft of merit crowd.
Truth is they think they are smarter than everyone else, yet they actually forward a failed and second class ideology. Lefties use two basic denigrations – capitalism is bad; and if you don’t agree with them you are selfish, a racist bigot, or you’re of questionable intelligence. That’s it!
As I wrote the other day, these same leftists who rail on about how bad it all is will then go to work for some capitalist entity and draw a paycheck, yet they are so blinded, or so ignorant, they then turn around and attack the very system that provides for them. And THAT’S how we find ourselves in this pot, the fire having the water beginning to boil and our feckless leader turning up the burner.
I’m truly not sure who is the more vacuous here – the leaders who lead their minions along on this journey, or the idiot sycophant so bereft of intelligent thought that they go along, and quite willingly. I mean, it’s easy to bemoan the misery of it all, and isn’t that their specialty? I know it’s Obama’s strong suit. To repeat over and over how bad it is, how bad the other guys are, how only he and he alone can fix it and how if ya don’t go along you’re evil, stupid or greedy.
Mr. President, I am highly intelligent, very well educated and supremely capable of taking care of my business without any help from you and the government. I do not need anything you have to offer, and I want it even less. I didn’t vote for you because I was not at all taken in by Hopey Change. I knew who and what you are. Read my catalog…it’s all right there in black and white. Many of the things I said about you and yours 4 years ago have come true. So how did I know this stuff?
Am I Nostradamus? Am I smarter than everyone else? No, of course neither is the case, but I can read and grasp history, really, really, well. And I can well apply the lessons of history to today’s events. As such, no pun intended, I will call a spade a spade, and Mr. Obama if the shoes fit your big ass feet, well grab the shoe horn and wedge those big feet in the big boy’s shoes, okay? Grow up! Lead us as a president should, and NOT, NOT, NOT as a petulant 8 year old who isn’t getting their way!
Lastly, you are said to be Jimmy Carter’s second term. That’s BS. Carter, as much as I disagreed with him on many things, at least lived it, meant it with all his heart, and no matter how ineffective he was as president, was not out to harm the nation and bring it down so any new leftist reality would appear attractive.
Mr. Obama, you are no Jimmy Carter. You will go down as the absolutely worst president in the 44 we have had thus far. Good riddance to bad rubbish!
