Who’s Laughing Now?

September 16, 2010 by  

Who’s Laughing Now?

Tuesday’s edition of The Hill featured a piece by Sam Youngman about a Presidential photo-op in fabulous Fairfax, Va. Entitled “President Obama seeks his inner Bill Clinton and feels voters’ pain,” the piece focused on a White House sojourn to the home of an upper middle class family in the aforementioned suburban enclave.

While my first thought was “at least they didn’t go back to Majorca,” a more intent perusal of the piece revealed a great deal about how our poor President has gotten so lost of late. At one point during the stop-over, Obama actually said he “feels their pain.” Bill Clinton used to say that, as well. Then the GOP dropped an electoral elephant on the Democrats in 1994. The more things “change…”

While Obama’s visit to the home of John Nicholas and Nicole Armstrong was no more or less carefully orchestrated than any other Presidential day trip, his talking points were — sadly — no more or less ludicrous than his other recent economic pronouncements.

Nicholas was noted as having “survived several layoffs at his Internet-services company,” while Armstrong has “recently returned to part-time work… to help pay the family’s bills.” So, while the President’s economic ineptitude has pushed the unemployment rate toward Carter-era numbers, the President went to a hoedown at a home owned by a family earning more than twice the national salary average.

Neither of his hosts is looking for work, nor are they “working” for the Census Bureau (or at any other government-backed make-work jobs the White House has been trying to sneak into the economic stew of late.) And Obama feels our pain? Obama might as well have visited a home which had recently been burglarized… and consoled the next-door neighbors.

During his photo-op, Obama also tried to tout his economic message, touching on his administration’s fight to dim the lights on Bush-era tax relief, a key point in the recent war of words the White House has been trying to wage. One White House spokesmodel suggested the Obama push to punish economic success stories by bumping up upper income tax bracket rates was:

“fight(ing) for the middle class.”

What the mouthpiece didn’t mention was the punitive nature of the Democrats’ frontal tax-assault on the nation’s leading producers. Right now, the top 25 percent of American income earners have to pull the cart for 86 percent of the IRS bill. If the margins go up, that top 25 percent (which includes nearly everyone at Obama’s Fairfax fandango) will have to spend less now to pay more in April. Even the D-students in Econ 101 can tell you taking money out of the economic reservoir lowers the level of the whole lake. More to the point: you don’t bench the varsity for running up the economic score.

But the exhaustive use of exhausted liberal justification for regressive taxes aside; Obama’s visit to the hinterlands actually got weird(er). According to the President:

“Michelle and I always laugh about it when people talk about us—I think they forget that we were basically living the same lives as John and Nicole, just it wasn’t that long ago,” Obama said. “It was, like, six, seven years ago.”

Whee, Presidential jocularity! How refreshing. I suppose we should be glad that our multi-millionaire Commander-in-Chief and his fashion plate wife can look back on their former lives of middle-class drudgery and smile. Pardon me if I don’t join in the fun there, chuckles. Remind me, Mr. Middle-class: Michelle took HOW many people along to Spain? It cost HOW MUCH? And you were dining with OPRAH that week? Then you went BACK to MARTHA’S VINEYARD?

The article dutifully noted that Obama grew up in less luxurious surroundings than the ones he was visiting on Monday (and the ones in which he currently resides). Meaning what—he’s a modern-day Horatio Alger?

I have learned to accept the essential hypocrisy of limousine liberals. But the idea of an extraordinarily wealthy man visiting reasonably wealthy supporters in order to promulgate economic policies which have not only consigned millions of Americans to far less fancy fields than Fairfax, but will also ensure few Americans can reach their level of wealth isn’t humorous; it’s horrific.

Pundits often point to the “disconnect” between Obama and the average citizen. Obama’s recent Fairfax field trip reveals something more sinister than simple separation: The President finds our plight amusing.

Laugh it up, liberals. We saw the same primary results you did. Come November, the joke’s on you.

    Just the other day, I decided to get in touch with my ‘inner Clinton’ [HA!]. I don’t pretend to be in Obummer’s league when it comes to lying my ass off to fool people into thinking that I can walk on water or that I alone can save America from itself.
    I can live without Sam Youngman, Bubba Clinton or The Anointed One. Frankly, I think this would be a better world would be a WHOLE lot better if Clinton was still in Arkansas, Sam Youngman worked for the Enquirer and Obummer cleaned toilets at the White House.
    Some people have very low standards when it comes to reporters. Youngman proves that. Many people have even lower standards when it comes to a prez. Bubba Clinton and Herr Obummer prove that.
    When November rolls around, America will rise up and show certain useful idiots, traitors and hack reporters just how “funny” they really are.

        Look,Its so simple,obama and reid and peeelosi said if we pass this almost one trillion dollar stimulus bill we can create jobs. How come they killed 50,000 jobs in northern california by cutting the water to all the farms except peeeeelosis farms and sent thousands of hard working farmers to the food lines and unemployment lines.Look,we can put 50,000 farm workers to work and it would cost us nothing,just turn the water back on to the farms in northern california.If obama and peeeelosi can not get us some jobs by just turning the water back on,then how can they get us some jobs with almost a trillion dollars. Oh,I almost forgot,the trillion dollars was not for jobs,it was to line the pockets of all the special interest groups as well as there own private offshore accounts.Can you say SOLDOUT???? Can you say george soros????? Look,America will learn how to make prayer rugs and face mecca 5 times a day or they will have to learn how to fight!!!!! For me,I am not converting to islam and I will not make a prayer rug….

        • vicki

          I know its fun to say things like
          “How come they killed 50,000 jobs in northern california by cutting the water to all the farms except peeeeelosis farms”

          But if they are true could you please provide links? Anyone can make up a story. Just look at how democrats do it every day. We need coobrating(sp) evidence of graft and corruption like the farms above to get properly righteously indignant.

            Hello Vickie, Come visit us in the Central Valley of Ca. and we can spend the day checking out what Delta Smelt has done to just 5 of the smaller farming towns near Fresno, there you will see what 50,000 affected farm related jobs loses looks like.Please dont forget the store owners, food services, farm equipment co., car dealers, mechanics, ect.ect.ect.Oh yes lets not forget the effects on these families, divorce, abuse,suicide, and all the wonderful stuff that comes along with tyranny.
            These politicans are opportunists, thieves, and criminals they deserve to be exiled or better.

        • Christin

          guyb,

          Your right guyb, all the money went into a Demo slush fund so they can pay off all the groups that sent money contributions in to his campaign to elect him and keep Demos in office. That’s why BO is STILL campaigning around the USA… he’s still giving speeches acknowledging that he will come through for them and making pay-offs along the way to those who put him in power.

          • Carol

            It’s astonishing to realize that some people still, today, truly believe that “Honesty” dwells in the minds and hearts of any and all politicians…Man-Alife…What makes you even consider that any political creature is going to use his own “Bread” to feed the public’s confused (lack of understanding the real nature of politics) vision..Mr.all, regardless of party, will spend someone eles’s coin!!!! If by any chance one of them would (Im Laughing Right Now) he’d showing himself to the public wearing nothing but “Underware”!!! I love coffee! Do you? Take care and don’t worry. Both parties will spend our money. It’s just to whom’s pockets it will go to. That’s all.

    • American Citizen

      It’s time the NRC gets behind and support the winners of the primaries and stop their crying and whining that “they can’t win.” They won’t if they don’t get the support they need. I had experience with that during our state elections years ago when we had a local running against Lee Hamilton and lost, then she ran against Baron Hill and lost. Both times, the nationals did not get behind her. We in the trenches worked hard for her to no avail. The lies told about her by the news media in Hamilton and Baron’s areas also worked against her. I am so sick of lying politicians who not only lie to get into office but also after they get in. We, the People, need to take back Washington, DC.

      • marvin

        American Citizen i agree 100% and morons like karl rove,s need to shut his stupid mouth it is the voter that puts a candidate on the ballet makes you wonder where people like rove have there head and hand, like bernie sanders i am a independent but ever thing he saz and does is liberal if morons like rove,s are conservative repubican,s we don,t need them

        • Christin

          I have always enjoyed listening to Carl Rove on FOX, but
          Rove showed his true colors as an Establishment Republican.

          Because of his negative speech that McDonnell doesn’t have her affairs in order and will likely lose against the dem makes him an enemy of the conservative movement. I would say the same of the establishment Republican Party who said they would not support her and back her financially and the loser Rep. Castle in the primary for not saying he would concede to her and support her. Imagine those guys are shocked when they lose which just shows they don’t get it… they only care about themselves.

          No one is laughing… this is life or death serious stuff.

      • Meteorlady

        Both parties hand pick their candidates. There is no democracy in voting anymore. They have called for redistricting so they can carry districts for their party. They have changed primaries and pre-elections to suit their needs.

        In Texas we have what is laughably called the “Two Step”. When Obama was running we went to the poles and had to declare one party or the other. Can’t vote unless you do that. Most Democrats voted for Hillary and she won. Should have been end of story right? Not…. then can the second step… Caucasus. That’s where the Democratic party members hold meetings in their private homes and people vote that again. Most people are too busy working, or can’t find the place of these caucasus, to attend so they don’t go. Hence – Obama won in Texas.

        The Republicans just have the primary and let it go at that. I also love all the “Super Delegates” that the Democrats have. They really don’t like much publicity about those guys. Those are the people that run the Democratic party and they get to choose, but voting, even after American citizens of each state have used the primary system to vote their preferences.

    • MM

      SC the only thing I disagree with you on is sending Slick Willy back to Arkansas. It took Arkansas 12 years to get rid of him. His Neo-Com cronies are still hanging around here. Attu Island in the Aluetians seems like a good place for him in my opinion! “By the 2000 census that would only effect 20 people and besides that it’s only 209 miles from where his really belongs, “Russia”.

      s c:
      One of the reasons Arkansas voted for Clinton for President was to get rid of him. As far as I can tell Clinton never was really an Arkansas resident. He left there as soon as he could, only went back when forced, and hasn’t been back since he became President.

      John Tower, of Texas, was Senator when Clinton took over. He was appointed by Clinton as Secretary of Treasury. A year later, Tower resigned and returned to Texas. A reporter asked him why he quit such a powerful job.

      Tower replied, “Because we have a fellon in the White House and I don’t want to go to prison with him.”

      • SirWilhelm

        Too bad he couldn’t find a way to put a felon in jail where he belongs. Because now, the felons are running the government.

      • Meteorlady

        Blame the American voters for Clinton. There were numerous things that came out about the Clintons during the campaign. They are such adept politicians that they were able to diffuse them and the American people bought it hook, line and sinker. There are people that will tell you that he was a great president. Not sure why they believe that, but they do.

        Not sure why the people that “accidentally” died around them were never investigated fully and most were accidents or suicides. They were powerful and had some really elite connections. Even in Arkansas, Clinton received monthly payoffs from Tyson Chicken to look the other way. People that brought that one out were threatened, slandered and generally pushed out of the way. One pilot that used to pick up the money sacks was even threatened with death to his family if he divulged what he knew.

        • 45caliber

          Don’t get me started on Clinton. He is one year older than I am. I went to the military and then to college so I started college in the fall when he graduated in the spring. I attended college with some of his classmates and they told me an earful. As a result, I followed his career fairly closely.

          During his governorship, he owned half a plane that flew in about 5000 lb. of cocaine twice a week into Mena. The State Police were ordered off the case. Once contacted the FBI who started to follow it. When he became President the first order given by Janet Reno was to order the FBI off the case. A couple were fired when they refused. He and Hillary set up a special state agency supposedly to make short term loans to schools. But about 150 million a month was being turned over by unknown companies. One of Clinton’s followers found out that they were laundrying drug profits. (They did not belong to the Clinton’s but the Clinton’s were paid for doing it.) When Star began his investigaton of Clinton, a small plane picked up several witnesses (8-10) along with all their evidence and it flew to Washington. Except it crashed on the way. It burned and all were killed. That’s why Star went with the sexual problems … it was all he had left.

          About 70 people were killed during that time. 27 were Secret Service men who died during Clinton’s first year as President – the highest rate of death among them ever. All were accidents or suicides, of course. Paul Foster and at least 3 more in Arkansas died (“suicide”) due to White Water. All drove themselves to the end of a dead end street and shot themselves through the head. But there was no blood spilled in the car, no bullet, and no powder marks on the victim’s hand. Several other ‘suicides’ were similar. Some also had a number of one-car accidents including a couple of State Police.

          • Christin

            Yet another reason NOT to vote for Hillary should the left elevate her in 2012.

            Thanks for sharing the drug plane story, 45. I remember Ken Starr’s problems with the clintons in court, but not all the specfics. I was so sick of billboy and his affairs and lieing about it. I had heard 36 people found death under the Clintons.

            Pure Evil.

            So much for The Rule of Law…

            I guess justic will come when Jesus comes with His double-edged tongue!

          • 45caliber

            Christin:
            There were seventy deaths that aided the Clintons – although I doubt if any were done by them. I’m not even sure they “suggested” that it might be better if someone was to die. But they were done to insure they had no problems. That is the one reason that I really don’t want them back in any important position. Particularly Hillary. She’s intelligent.

            Incidently, there were two 16 year old boys killed at Mena due to the plane. They lived about a quarter mile from the airport. They went out walking one evening about 8 – and were later (2 am) run over by a train over 20 miles away. The train engineer said he came around a curve and they were laying across the tracks. He had no time to stop and neither moved as he blew the horn. Clinton appointed the coroner. The parents of both boys said they had a number of purple holes in their chests but the coroner ruled that they were only bruises from flying gravel. He stated that they had been smoking mariwanna (can’t spell it) and had gone to sleep on the tracks. When the parents tried to claim the bodies to send out of state for another autopsy, he had the bodies cremated. Then he said that he thought that was what they wanted and appologized. They didn’t have to pay for the cremations.

            Clinton later appointed him to the head coroner of the state. He served two years and retired on $175,000 a year.

          • LocalYokel

            Don’t skip the hush of his financial partner in crime, Jim McDougal, assassinated in prison after threatening to flip in a recorded phone call to his wife or his pilot Barry Seale scheduled for congressional testimony who met the same fate at halfway house in Baton Rouge by massad agents with two Columbian patsies at hand for cover. The operation only required the promise to release convicted Israeli spy Jonathan Pollard, but he Bill reneged.
            Clinton was hand picked by international elite through their active agent ,1945 to 1975, Arkansas Sen. J. William Fulbright and bestowed with their “Rhodes Scholar” stigma to finish indoctrination at Oxford.
            As chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee for 15 years Fulbright had supported the creation of the United Nations, opposed the House Un-American Activities Committee, led the efforts establishing the Fulbright Fellowships international student exchange program and was also a strong believer in international law: The Fulbright Program established in 1946 under his legislation was sponsored by the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs of the United States Department of State. Approximately 279,500 “Fulbrighters,” 105,400 from the United States and 174,100 from other countries, have participated in the Program since its inception over sixty years ago. The Fulbright Program awards approximately 6,000 new grants annually and operates in over 150 countries worldwide. It’s much easier to understand excess of tares in today’s legislative and judicial crop when the seed planting is revealed but the near total sellout of mass media. The word belligerence seems to have been designed to describe followers of Islam and mass media and like Nancy and Harry they just didn’t know that it was contagious.

      Actually the Mooslums are starting to HATE HIM too.

      Mosque at Ground Zero, freedom of religion or SPOILS OF A TERRORIST WAR? That is a good question.
      I belive it is part of a well planned and well funded Mooslum incursion and invasion of the Western World. An invasion ot by the sword but by infiltration, population and litigation using allies in the Civil Rights Movements, ACLU, and using our free and open system to defeat us.
      We give students visas get gain a foothold and soon they have compounds and enclaves where they can populate and grow by having an average of 8 children per woman.

      They have “American” accomplices especially LIEberals and blacks. The blacks mosques pretending to be churches like Nation of Islam and Rev Wright’s “church”.

      WAKE UP how can we, a nation that is over 75% Christian, allow a Petty Pretend Prez say: “WE ARE NO LONGER A CHRISTIAN NATION”.
      Time to get on our knees and pray and than roll up our sleeves and Make this a Chritian Nation Again. It is our will, it is GOD’S WILL.

      They won’t like him too much when they find out he is gay… they kill those kind of guys.

      Last week was it the muslims were burning a life-size dummy of BO in (can’t remember the country over seas) because of the American Floridian preacher who wanted to burn korans to protest the muslim terrorists, mosque at ground zero, and their desire to kill us all according to the koran.

      I remember thinking… they hate him… no matter what…if he bows to their kings, visits their mosques, makes appology tours, hires devout Islamics to Homeland Security, speaks koran verses with precise dialect, was born from a Kenyan father, supports Islam in America, and the building of the Ground Zero mosque.

  • http://charter howe

    I am still astounded by the number of my fellow countrymen who were fooled into voting for this socialist ideologue who is slowly but surely dismantling the greatest nation on earth piece by piece by piece. We cannot survive as a banana republic because too many people in this world hate us for the freedom that we have always stood for and the military operations we have always conducted to keep the third world monsters in check. When this guy gets through you will not have an entitlement because there ain’t enough wealth to spread around in a society where only 50% of the people pay tax. When your kids go looking for a loaf of bread and have to fight off a gang to get back home safely it will be too late to wish you had acted to avoid this kind of calamity. I gave 29 years to the military to keep other countries from doing what Obama, Pelosi, Reid and the radical democrats are doing from within. Please join my old tired ass and vote these lousy slugs out of office in Nov 2010 and 2012. It is a matter of life and death for our country and our children.

    WAIT JUST A MINUTE
    Did BaWRECK just give a diss to Clinton politics and praise Bush’s policies?

    “Michelle and I always laugh about it when people talk about us—I think they forget that we were basically living the same lives as John and Nicole, just it wasn’t that long ago,” Obama said. “It was, like, six, seven years ago.”

    Lets analyze this for a moment.
    He was living like John & Nicole 6-7 yrs ago which was living the same life that he may have lived during Clinton’s terms BUT 6-7 yrs agot things got much better for the Petty Prez that was during Bush’s term….therefore Bush’s and Republicans do actually raise the living level that is Clear Proof according to Barack the Lame Duck’s story.

    Now people are in poverty in misery in less than 2 yrs of his LIEberal policies.
    SO NWO WE KNOW it isn’t Bush’s fault after all.

    I JUST DO NOT UNDERSTAND OBAMA. THE DAY BEFORE HE TOOK OFFICE–HE RECEIVED 500K AS AN ADVANCE ON A BOOK. YESTERDAY WE HEARD THE BOOK IS PUBLISHED AND HE RECEIVED 1.4 MILLION FOR IT.. HE CAMPAIGNS EVERY DAY EVEN IN AREAS WHERE THE DEMS SHUN HIM. HE PLAYS BASKETBALL, VACATIONS EVERY OTHER MONTH, PARTIES HARD AT THE WHITEHOUSE NON STOP AND SPENDS TIME ON GOLF COURSES.. WHEN IN THE H#LL DOES HE PLAY PRESIDENT? IS HE A PUPPET FOR HIS HANDLERS? WHEN HE CAMPAIGNS–IS HE JUST TRYING TO GET AWAY FROM MICHELLE AND HER CARROT STICKS SO HE CAN STUFF HIMSELF WITH BIG FAT GREASY HOTDOGS AND HAMBURGERS? MAKES ME WONDER ABOUT THOSE WHO ELECTED HIM. HIS DR. TOLD HIM TO QUIT THE SMOKES AND CUT BACK THE ALCOHOL. HE HAS AN ADDICTIVE PERSONALITY LIKE HIS DADDY—YOU KNOW THE ONE BILL AYERS WROTE A BOOK ABOUT FOR OBAMA–THE ALCOHOLIC MARXIST WHO WAS TOO RADICAL EVEN FOR KENYA. I SURE HOPE THE NEW FOLKS COMING INTO THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES DEMANDS A PRESENTATION OF ALL OF HIS SEALED DOCUMENTS INCLUDING THE BIRTH CERTIFICATE WIH A RAISED SEAL AND NOT THE FABRICATION HE HAS PASSED OFF TO THE SHEEPLE. WE NEED TO SEE HIS PAPERS FROM COLUMBIA AND HARVARD–WE NEED TO SEE THE GRADES. WE REALLY LET THE SHEEPLE PULL THE WOOL OVER OUR EYES BY NOT DEMANDING TO KNOW WHO THEY WERE GETTING FOR PRESIDENT. I GUESS IT IS LIKE THE HEALTH BILL… WE HAD TO ELECT HIM TO KNOW WHAT WE WERE GETTING. VOTE IN NOV.. TAKE AWAY THE CRIMINALS WHO VOTED TO TURN US INTO A MARXIST SOCIETY.

    It isn’t surprising that this family was selected.

    Back in 1973, the government selected the country’s “average” family. It was a man, wife, and four teenage sons somewhere in the North. At that time the average salary in my area was about $12,000 a year. The man made over $100,000 a year. They owned a 4000 sq.ft. house and had a greenhouse, sauna, and enclosed swimming pool. They had five vehicles and four snow-mobiles. To make things easier (this was the time of the fuel ‘crisis’) he had a 1000 gallon tank in the front yard he had filled with gasoline once a month or so to fuel all their equipment. He also had a 40 foot travel home. 80 miles away they owned a farm with three tractors and other assorted equipment where they went most weekends.

    And this is what the government called an “average family”.

    I have suspected ever since that the government really does believe that an upper middle class family (or even a lower upper class family) is the average for the nation. That is the reason they don’t seem to understand the problems the rest of us have with high taxes, among other things.

    Yes Obama was once poor and once middle class and is now rich.I’m sure we’d all rather be rich than poor so I think Ben is missing his own jest of it all. Most Americans who are reaching for that gold ring of richness are missing an important point also. There are too many poor or lower middle class Americans who happen to be liberals And conservative. Ben is always trying to pigeon hole everything to one side of the political spectrum. Wealth does not make you a better person and it can be quite the opposite. Most people with buckets of money are as arrogant as they come. Few are in touch with anyone below them. They give to feel good (and that’s okay) but they have long forgotten the struggles of others. Allot of people say they want to help the homeless but in the same breath they want them out of their town.Our race to the top has produced too many spoiled Americans:movie stars,sports figures,CEO’s,political spoilers and on down the line.We all seem to be attracted to them and even emulate them. When you think about it;who wants to be like a small farmer or factory worker or waitress? We trash these jobs (even when it’s our own> We want to drink champagne on a beer budget and forget how important these “lesser” jobs are. Work hard and respect your job no matter what you do for the wealthy aren’t always your friend. Now it does seem that there are allot of people out there who write books and become wealthy. Obama is no exception but his lifestyle isn’t much different than any other President. They all get alittle smug once in office. When Nixon became President he was worth $400,000 and when he left he was a multi-millionaire. Our whole system of wealth and fairness is creating a great divide and much of that wealth is crippling our moral values not enhancing it.

    • 45caliber

      So … you are saying that everyone should be poor to be able to live good lives?

      When I was younger, we lived paycheck to paycheck. We had very little and barely could keep food on the table. We had to run up about $20,000 in credit card loans just to do that. In fact, for one entire year all our food came from credit cards. It took me nearly 20 years to pay that off. I am just now making slightly more than we need … and I have no interest in going back to the “good, old days” – that were old but not good.

      Yet it seems to me that is exactly what you are saying.

      • eddie47d

        Caliber; Never said that at all. Allot of folks on this site seem to dump on the poor and sometimes even the middle class. They also seem to sing praises to the wealthy no matter where or how they got their money. To me a wealthy crook is far more evil than a poor crook,as an example. (some have called the poor “welfare rats”, “A drain on society” Shouldn’t have the right to vote” “leaches”,ect.)Maybe you fit into the “poor” picture a few years ago. Being poor or even middle class seems to be a crime today. We’re just not good enough for a number of people. I’ve seen poor and even middle class people who have “made it” who turn against those below them.(Until they lose some of their gained wealth -oh how humble they can become).Having more baubles in life certainly doesn’t make you a better person or even a kind person.

      fast eddie says: “Our whole system of wealth and fairness is creating a great divide and much of that wealth is crippling our moral values not enhancing it.”

      It’s just my opinion but I think the corrupted MSM and the power/greed hungry corrupt politicians under the direction of their global elite bosses have cleverly engineered the divide, not our system. The liberal/progressives have taken the bait hook, line and sinker and run with it. While they continue to blame the corporations for our economic problems they fail to admit that without a corrupt political system there wouldn’t be the corrupt laws that reward the corporations.

      • JeffH

        …to add to my comment, the power of persuasion by the progressives and promoted through the MSM has convinced the poor and unfortunate that they are owed everything the rich and more fortunate working class have achieved, without working for it.
        Mediocrity breeds mediocrity!

        As Saul Alinsky taught: “A Marxist begins with his prime truth that all evils are caused by the exploitation of the proletariat(in Marxist theory, the class of industrial workers whose only asset is the labor they sell to an employer)by the capitalists. From this he logically proceeds to the revolution to end capitalism, then into the third stage of reorganization into a new social order of the dictatorship of the proletariat, and finally the last stage — the political paradise of communism.”

      • eddie47d

        Both politicians and corporations are looking for favors. The corporations (lobbyists) dole out freebies to public servants . The public servants find ways to repay these corporations,(votes). They all weave rather large webs. It is a cycle that does need to be broken.

        • Mike In MI

          eddie47d – “the cycle has to be broken…”

          The only protection the culture has for its social order and continuation is the Constitution. The reason the liberals need to get rid of the Constitution is they know it is the primary document that stands in their road to complete freedom from accountability. As long as they are allowed to legislate from the bench at the federal courts and pass un-Constitutional laws in Congress we will proceed down the path to inevitable anarchy and chaos. (We are, now, no longer a nation of laws. We are all in jeopardy from the tyrrants.) They expect by then to have amassed all wealth in their hands and think that will make them secure from the conflagration that goes with social chaos. Then the wealth will become worthless.
          Sorry, all that wealth will have lost all its value and the destruction they have caused will seek them out too. Go all the way back to Rome (and probably beyond) if you want evidence.

          If you argue their case and stand on their bloc your world will dissolve.

    eddie 47 I want you to think about this very carefully. we all produce.. when you reward laziness, illegality(illegal alliens) waste, and priming companies that produce products that are not proven, or rationally possible to work. you then are destroying growth, profitability, and success. when your encourage spending and debt you create the basis for failure in total. that is what we are presently doing. the laws of money are being violated and the end result is failure, and in this case destruction. sorry but you voted for it and we got it and will colaspe because of it. good luck but it wont work.

      atlas:

      Those on Welfare, etc. are chortling about how Oblama and friends are going to stick it to the wealthy (read everyone but them). They are certain that they are going to be given lots of goodies while those of us who work barely get by.

      But one thing they are overlooking: Oblama is installing Socialism/Communism. And that type of government does NOT work that way!

      They appoint everyone to a job. If you don’t want to do it, too bad. If you don’t like it, too bad. If you don’t show up – you can be shot. Further, both types of government want only those who are useful to the government. Retired people are no longer useful since they consume but do not produce. BUT WELFARE PEOPLE CONSUME AND DO NOT PRODUCE EITHER!

      Yes, Socialism is designed to encourage the old to die early. But they also encourage the useless to die early. In fact, like the elderly, they are even willing to help the useless die early.

      I’ve got a feeling that if Oblama and friends succeed in what they are doing there are going to be a lot of people who are suddenly going to find themselves either forced to work at a job they don’t like or they will end up in some concentration camp in a place similar to Siberia.

      And I expect Norm and joba and friends will find themselves in the front of the line, wondering what hit them.

          Obama is arrogant. Ever watch him make one of his pronouncements and then elevate his schnoz? There are people who have learned to read “body language”. They watched videos of Bernie Madoff and said he was guilty. They said the peculiar smirky expression on his face meant he consideed himself “superior” and fooling everybody.

        Laziness and welfare are the same. Only in those rare cases it isn’t. We should abollish the self destructive welfare state, sanctifying everyone on it as a victim. We should remind them that this country was built and preserved by people who refused to be victims. Hand ups and not hand outs! Your boss gives you a bonus for doing a good job–hand up. If you are given a monthly check from the fed because you are too lazy to work–hand out. Which one would you rather have edduh? I’d rather have the first one, because it shows that I worked hard and EARNED something. Your not entitled to anything in this world if you don’t earn it.

    There are both good and bad among the rich. I came from a very poor family but I felt we were rich in that there was always food on the table and I didn’t mind those hand me downs. I think my father was one of the most admired people around while I was growing up. In a town of 7,000 people, there were over 350 vehicles at his funeral and hundreds of people.

    It boils down to how you treat people, rich or not. Two of my friends just happen to be millionaires but you wouldn’t know it by the way they lived and they certainly don’t look down on my wife and I because we are only middle class and barely that. Over the years, in business, I met with several people who were millionaires and found only one who I would call obnoxious. I can’t say it was because he was wealthy. There are many middle class people who fit this category as well. People are people and believe they will be that way regardless of their financial status.

    My father made certain we never judged a person in a negative way. It is a difficult thing to do, especially in cases like President Obama when you see him for what he actually is. That is a puppet in a much larger scheme than most people are now beginning to understand where he is trying to take this country.

      Bud G,

      I’m broke ! “No Mucho Dinero” to all the undoc workers !!! Most people up here in Connecticut look down on you when y’all broke. The only ones who don’t look down on you are trying to rip you off in some way…..

      Ask your millionaire friends to loan you some money .. Tell ‘em you want to open a McDonald’s ! That’s the ticket ! Get yourself a McDonald’s and you can pay them back in a year or two. Then it’s just profit !

      Ben, I think Obama’s laughing at me right now – he’s reading my post. Prez Obama, if you are reading this – Don’t take what the people here say to seriously. They have anxiety disorders that can be solve with Effexor NR or Buspar… Mr. President, also look into the investment advice for you and your family – get into gold/silver coins… just in case.

    eddie 47 when government gets out of business and lets businesses compete and dog eat dog you will see prices decline and competion make the companies be very competetive or they will go out of business. instead of a couple hundred businesses competeting with government controlling, you will have 10 or 15 efficeint companies competing for your business. they would not have the controlled guarentteed customers. efficeintcy would dictate what would be paid. and that would be much lower than you think. during the early 19oo s their were few managers in each company. costs were kept down and everyone was happy. not today. government subsides everywhere..I could go on but i think you should understand what I am saying.

    • eddie47d

      Thanks for your answer.

  • Viktor Leben

    Y’know, I think Ben Crystal is just a little bit envious of good ol Prez Obama !! Obama was smart enough to become President, something Ben could never do (I’ll probably eat my words on that one ! Prez Crystal in 2012 ?).

    All you conservative idiotlogs .. Obama and Clinton (and their wives) have more political/success smarts in their little toe than the whole “collective” commenters on personalliberty.com. Doesn’t that tell you something ? Maybe the Libtards are smarter than all of you … combined.

    It’s tough being a victim. You all need to get some counseling.. from a Marine Drill Instructor !!!

    I am totally at a loss to understand what people are talking about, when it comes to this President. At this point in time, when he is totally out of focus with what is going on, he tries to blame everybody else for the problems he creates. Blame Bush for everything—now there is an effective policy. Sure, George W.Bush did a lot of idiotic things during his term in office, but this guy (Obama) has taken incompetence to new heights during his (2 years)or a half term in office. What’s next, blame Lyndon Baines Johnson for the highest poverty rate in the last 40 years. Look Sen. Barack Obama voted for the same stimulus package bills that were proposed by the previous Administration and only voted to double or even triple these sums in order to “stimulate the economy”, which is a joke because these elected members of Congress are only compounding the deficit, and piling on to the national debt. Vote all the incompetent morons out of office this Fall 2010, and if they can’t make inroads into solving this problem, then vote them all out the next election. Eventually we will get it right and we will turn this country around and make the Founders proud, for we finally will have realized the truth. The truth is that the freedom of the individual is paramount, and the Republic and the Constitution is our guide or principle to follow in order to maintain this great Nation. Our rights and freedoms are Natural or God-given, and no government or person can take them away. Sincerely, Dave S.

    Sanchez the constitution is based on Gods guide, but the liberals and marxists hate everything associated with God. Our founding fathers did not ask liberals or marxists to guide them, they asked for God to lead them and guide them. they got it right, but the liberals want God out of their lives because that makes them responsible to a higher standard and value. they are narsasists and if they can not have it their way then no one can have anything but misery and suffering. Good is bad in their veiw and if they can not have what they want they will destroy everything they can, just like a baby who does not get its way it will cry and screem untill it gets its way or falls asleep from crying.

      Good post! 100% agree! Keep up the fight, fellow patriot! FOR GOD AND COUNTRY!

    Viktor: I doubt that your “Libtards” are more intelligent than the Conservatives you so hate. In fact, I doubt that your IQ is very high or you would have a little more class with your words.

    For the record, I am not poor but not a millionaire but in the 33 per cent income bracket on taxes.

    We will see who the fools are this November and 2012 when you ilk become the forgotten.
