In 2014, half of
American citizens can’t stand Mr. Barack Hussein Obama and the other half love
him. The first half still work jobs
while the other half (about 47 percent) live off welfare in a variety of forms.
On December 4, 2013,
Obama gave his “income inequality speech.”
He expects to fundamentally change America by forcing those of us who
work to give up more of our money to those who lack education, refuse to work
or simply cannot function intelligently enough to sustain a job.
In early January 2014,
Bob Lonsberry, a Rochester talk radio personality on WHAM 1180 AM, said we now
encompass two Americas.
"The Democrats are right, there are two Americas,” said Lonsberry. “The
America that works , and the
America that doesn’t . The America that contributes , and the America that doesn’t.
“It’s not the
haves and the have not’s, it’s the
do’s and the don’ts. Some people do their duty as Americans, obey the
law, support themselves, contribute to society, and others don’t. That’s
the divide in America.
“It’s not about income inequality , it’s about civic irresponsibility. It’s about a political party that
preaches hatred, greed and victimization in order to win elective office. It’s about a political party that loves power
more than it loves its country. That’s not invective, that’s truth, and
it’s about time someone said it.
“The politics of envy was on proud display a
couple weeks ago when President Obama
pledged the rest of his term to fighting “income inequality.”
He noted that some people make more than other people, that some people have
higher incomes than others, and he says
that’s not just.
“That is the rationale of thievery. The
other guy has it, you want it, Obama
will take it for you . Vote Democrat. That is the philosophy that
produced Detroit . It is the electoral philosophy that is destroying America . It conceals a
fundamental deviation from American values and common sense because it ends up
not benefiting the people who support it, but a betrayal.
“The Democrats have not empowered their
followers, they have enslaved them in
a culture of dependence and entitlement,
of victim-hood and anger instead of ability and hope.
“The president’s premise--that you reduce income
inequality by debasing the successful--seeks to deny the successful the consequences of their choices and spare the unsuccessful the
consequences of their choices. Because,
by and large, income variations in society is a result of different choices leading to different
consequences. Those who choose wisely and responsibility have a far
greater likelihood of success, while those who choose foolishly and
irresponsibly have a far greater likelihood of failure.
and failure usually manifest themselves in personal and family income.
You choose to drop out of high school or to skip
college--and you are apt to have a different outcome than someone who gets a
diploma and pushes on with purposeful education.
“You have your children out of wedlock and life
is apt to take one course; you have them within a marriage and life is
apt to take another course. Most often
in life our destination is determined
by the course we take.
“My doctor, for example, makes far more than I
do. There is significant income inequality between us. Our lives
have had an inequality of outcome, but, our lives also have had an inequality
of effort. While my doctor went to college and then devoted his
young adulthood to medical school and residency, I got a job in a restaurant.
“He made a choice, I made a choice, and our
choices led us to different outcomes. His outcome pays a lot better than
mine. Does that mean he cheated and Barack Obama needs to take away his wealth?
No, it means we are both
free men in a free society where free choices lead to different outcomes.
“It is not inequality Barack Obama intends to
take away, it is freedom.
The freedom to succeed, and the freedom to fail. There is no true
option for success if there is no true option for failure.
“The pursuit of happiness means a whole lot less
when you face the punitive hand of government if your pursuit brings you more
happiness than the other guy. Even if
the other guy sat on his butt and did nothing. Even if the other guy made
a lifetime’s worth of asinine and shortsighted decisions.
“Barack Obama and the Democrats preach equality of outcome as a right ,
while completely ignoring inequality of
The simple Law of the Harvest--as ye sow, so
shall ye reap--is sometimes applied as, “The harder you work, the more you
get." Obama would turn that upside down. Those who achieve are to be punished as enemies of society and those who fail are to be rewarded as wards of
“Entitlement will replace effort as the key to
upward mobility in American society if Barack Obama gets his way.
He seeks a lowest common denominator society in which the government besieges
the successful and productive to foster
equality through mediocrity.
“He and his party speak of two Americas, and their grip on power is based on using the
votes of one to sap the productivity of the other. America
is not divided by the differences in our outcomes, it is divided by the
differences in our efforts. It is a false philosophy to say one
man’s success comes about unavoidably as the result of another man.”
Lonsberry stated the obvious: 48 million Americans subsisting on food
stamps shows they made poor decisions about graduating from high school. They
chose to remain stupid. With 68 percent
of African-American children growing up with a single mother who lives on
welfare—shows those women made very poor choices. When 76 percent of high school students in
Detroit, Michigan dropout or flunkout, their choices condemn them to a
At some point, Barack H. Obama needs to inspire
people to remain in school, earn an educated mind, earn a good job and become a
parent who marries a spouse and brings up kids with a home, food and
responsibilities to contribute to our society.
One way works and the other doesn’t. As you know, Obama came from a broken home
where the father split, then, the second father split and Barack Obama has
never held a job. Someone gave him a
free education, free college tuition and a free pass from his life of lying,
i.e., birth certificate, Social Security number, Selective Service Card and
enrollment in Harvard with non-qualifying grades. Seems like he needs to backtrack on his life
to come up with a better speech on “income inequality.”
