Quote of the Day

“Capitalism and communism stand at opposite poles. Their essential difference is this: The communist, seeing the rich man and his fine home, says: ‘No man should have so much.’ The capitalist, seeing the same thing, says: ‘All men should have as much.’ “

Singing the Blues Amerika Finds Itself in the Red

In today’s UKTimes, Daniel Finkelstein writes about the reasons why Americans voted for Barack Obama as President of the United States.  His primary premise is that America itself is richer, smarter and less white.

Let’s ponder that statement for a moment. 

Nope, I’m not buying all of it.

America on Election Day was decidedly poorer than it was in 2004 when George W. Bush was elected President.  In fact, the Committee for a Responsible Budget recently reported that U.S. budget deficit numbers hover near $1 trillion dollars.  According to an ABC News Report, this deficit represents the

highest level of federal red ink as a share of the overall economy of any US budget since the 1940s. For each household, this year’s deficit would pile on an extra $8,620 of federal debt.

So much for being us being richer.

As for being smarter, Americans chose to elect a man who, by his own admission, wants to “spread the wealth around.” 

But with a $1 trillion dollar deficit, there is not going to be much opportunity to use the tax code to create wealth here in America for a long time, especially with all of the economic promises made during the election cycle. 

And the sad fact is that many of the promises made during the campaign are sure to be broken as the harsh reality of our diminishing economy, and the global economy as a whole, become more and more evident to all of us.

Besides, our first priority should be to reduce government spending before we commit any additional federal dollars for new programs.  But we can only accomplish this task by cutting earmarks and reducing the size of government, two things which are unlikely to occur with overwhelmingly Democratic representation in both houses of Congress and in the Office of President.

The only way out is through economic growth, which cannot occur if capital gains taxes are not drastically reduced.  Without decreased taxation, American corporations are not incentivized to create new jobs.  And as the global economy continues its downward spiral, the American economy will also continue to suffer from lack of capital, increasing interest rates and growing deficits in international markets. 

We need to produce something the world wants.

And we need to figure out what that might be…quickly.  But the truth is that the entire world is in uncharted economic territory.  None of the stop-gap measures taken in any country have halted the economic skid. 

And nobody is buying anything right now.

But creating more government jobs is not a solution.  It is an act of inherent self-destruction. 

We tax ourselves more to create more jobs for which we tax ourselves more to keep our jobs.  Before long, we start to look a lot like…China…or Cuba.  Pick the communist country of your choice.

Which brings me to Finklestein’s last point:  America is less white. 

And I agree with him on this point: 

Amerika has become a red state.  She not only finds herself in the red financially, but she is in the red ideologically.   

Legislating and agressively promoting marxist economic policies, the Democrats have, in this election, purchased for themselves two years of our time and our money to use as they see fit with more Fannies, more Freddies, and far less accountability than ordinary citizens can even imagine. 

But the people of America have spoken.  They must really like the blues.

As for me, I’m seeing red. 

And I don’t like it.

Auntie Zeituni: Living the Obama Life in America

  If I help him, he’s gonna help me!

Tell that to Aunt Zeituni Onyango living illegally in the squalor of Barney Frank’s home state of Massachusettes.  Maybe we should ask her how the Obama wealth redistribution plan is working for her. 

Especially since she has given over two hundred sixty of her hard earned American dollars to his campaign.  Illegally.

Wow.  She must be RICH! 

She lives in public housing and lists the Boston Housing Authority as her employer.  I can only guess that living in America in squalor is far better than living in squalor in Kenya, where the “other” famous Obama relative lives on one dollar per month.

Barak Obama says he didn’t know she was living here. Or that she had a government house and a government job.

Or that she was illegal.  

But so were her campaign contributions.  And he didn’t know about them or where they came from either.

Just like he doesn’t know where all of those other “illegal” campaign donations are coming from, including the ones that come from other illegal aliens, illegal sources or other global citizens just contributing thousands of dollars in small increments on untraceable credit cards. 

After all, we can’t even track the illegal aliens in this country…all because they don’t have drivers’ licences.

Yet.

But soon some of them will have government houses, thanks to failures of Barney Frank, Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae.  And under the Obama Amnesty Plan, more of them will have drivers’ licences and government jobs.  As we speak, Nancy Pelosi is busy working on her jobs creation plan to present to Congress immediately after the election.

Guess who will get hired first?

Just remember, if the poorest of the poor can come to America (just how did she pay for her plane ticket anyway?) and still have $260 to give to a presidential campaign, then ALL of us are rich.

And all of us will have to pay a little more.  After all, as Joe Biden reminded us, it’s our patriotic duty.

What a great country. 

But don’t look for it to stay that way with Obama as president. 

After all, Auntie Zeituni left Kenya:  she didn’t expect to find Kenya here. 

She came to see her nephew Barry. 

But he’s lost.  And so is she. 

Lost in the socialist bureacracies we call welfare and illegal immigration status.

And so will be America if he wins on Tuesday.

Biden Strikes Out; Obama Takes Ball and Goes Home

As a result of the interview below, the Obama campaign has issued a statement denying WFTV access to the Obama campaign for the remainder of the election season.  Apparently, despite supporting the Phillies while in Philly, and spreading the love to the Devil Rays while in Florida, Obama dislikes hardball. 

Reported in the Orlando Sentinel:  Dems nix WFTV chat with Jill Biden

Why did Barack Obama‘s campaign cancel a WFTV-Channel 9 interview with Jill Biden, wife of Sen. Joe Biden? The campaign cited “an unprofessional interview” WFTV’s Barbara West did Thursday with Joe Biden. In a statement Friday, Adrianne Marsh, Florida spokeswoman for Obama’s campaign, said the station, in talking with Sen. Biden, was “both combative and woefully uninformed about simple facts.” Marsh said West’s insistence that Obama was an organizer for ACORN was “100 percent false.” “In a line of questioning that would make Rush Limbaugh proud, West even went as far as to quote Karl Marx, a Communist icon, in a disturbing attempt to associate Barack Obama with socialism,” Marsh wrote. West said, “I think I asked him some pointed questions. . . . I don’t think I was rude or inconsiderate to him.”

A standing ovation to Barbara West for handling tough questions professionally and appropriately.

A word to Obama and Biden: You’re OUT!

Obama Schleps over to Hawaii

To Grandmother’s House We Go…

 

The recent word on the street is that Barak Obama is hot on the heels of Andy Martin for his own Hawaiian schlepover with his ailing grandmother.  Canceling his campaign appearances Thursday and Friday, Obama is expected to arrive in Hawaii in time to help celebrate granny’s 86th birthday on Sunday.

 

Apparently, Obama is quite fond of “Toot,” as is demonstrated by the abundance of photos available of Toot with Barry, Toot with Barry and Michele, Toot with Barry, Michelle and the great-granddaughters.

 

What?  You say that no such photos exist?

 

The only photo that demonstrates his warm, fuzzy relationship with granny is a twenty-five year old picture?

 

But where is Michelle?  And where are the great-grandbabies?  And why aren’t they going with him to visit granny?

 

Oh, that’s right.  They were just there during their vacation…and they spent a whole hour with her.

 

The truth is that every grandmother wants to see her grandchildren…even if it is on her sickbed…just to have some comfort…and some company.

 

We pray that granny is truly on the mend from her broken hip.  But we heard the injury occurred when Barry threw her under the bus by referring to her as “a [white] woman who once confessed her fear of black men who passed by her on the street, and who on more than one occasion… uttered racial or ethnic stereotypes that made me cringe.”

 

Wow.  Talk about public disclosure.  There is no mending that rift in the family fabric.

 

And while granny’s prognosis may be good for this injury, we don’t know if she will ever recover from her broken heart. 

 

Years of estrangement will do that to the stoutest soul.

 

But granny…beware. 

 

Opening your door to a wolf posing as your grandson can not produce a happy ending for you. 

 

And electing him president will not produce a happy ending for us either.

 

We’ve all been swallowed alive here.

 

We can only hope that Andy Martin will show up with his axe to set us free.

Hot off the press!
