In a recent speech, Barack Obama said, “We need to share the wealth with everyone!”
One of the infamous writers of the past, Karl Marx, said, “From each according to his ability, to each according to his need.”
Marx created socialism--communism, which proved one of the most dangerous and ominous economic tragedies of all time. Socialism works against human nature. It demands those who work share with those who don’t work. From our experiences in the past 100 years, it only works out of the barrel of a gun. As long as you hold the gun, you may enforce the tenets of communism! Finally, it espouses a classless society. From all the countries I visited during my world travels, places like dictatorship-driven China manifest Marx’s ideas at their worst.
As a college kid, I remember how colleges presented full ride scholarships to inner city athletes who could barely read or write past the 10th grade level. However, they carried a football like the ‘Midnight Express’ and hit like a freight train. At my university, I attended several classes, (Anatomy 316) with many of the football and basketball players, only to watch them attend the first and last class. They received ‘A’s’ but never studied. As a resident assistant (staff), I watched them play cards in the grill most nights.
How does that play out across the board? From my experience playing Big 10 football, I suspect that most defensive lines, at the college and professional ranks from the inner city, possess IQ’s not much higher than a patch of geraniums!
In the 60s, my college presented 100 Detroit inner city kids with full ride scholarships of tuition, room and board, books, clothes, transportation and spending money. Every night in my residence hall, they played cards, gobbled burgers and laughed a lot. I recall only one of them graduated.
“From each according to his ability, to each according to his need!”
Upon my college graduation, President Lyndon Baines Johnson enacted “The Great Society” initiative that followed Marx’s concept of giving money and assistance to those who earned nothing by doing nothing. Today, we find two to three generations living in cyclical poverty as they ‘feed’ off the system with food stamps, housing, medical and transport paid by taxpayers.
While working during the summers in Detroit, Michigan with a summer job from my teaching career, 1977 through 1990, I finished 12 hour days, then walked into a Kroger grocery store to see behemoth women pushing four carts into the checkout lane with 10 kids in tow. They paid for their staples with my money: food stamps. Aid to Dependent Children, created by our government, allowed inner city mothers to birth another child for a TV payment and another for a car payment and another for furnishing ‘her’ house. You may see the results of a burned out and destroyed city today by going to:
Be prepared for some sickening pictures of Detroit’s demise as working Americans fled the “Motor City”. Former Mayor Coleman Young broke the city with his corruption and the latest mayor, Kwame Kilpatrick, now sits in prison for his corruption.
As a teacher, I found myself ‘encouraged’ by administrators to pass kids no matter their failing work in class. Soon, those kids discovered that ‘affirmative action grading’ allowed them to pass to the next grade by doing nothing. Once they ‘graduated’ from high school functionally illiterate with an ‘affirmative action’ diploma—they enjoyed jobs where they didn’t do much more than answer a phone, security guard or hold a DOT flag. Our government, made up of men like Obama, dumbed down America’s educational systems that now employ millions in indolent governmental jobs—that accomplish nothing more than not much at all.
“From each according to his ability, to each according to his need.”
What did we discover in 2008? We find school systems turning out millions of students that remain functionally illiterate. Brian Williams at NBC reported last June that only 24 percent of high school students graduated from the “Murder Capital of the World” Detroit, Michigan. Similar percentages hold true for Chicago, Denver, Atlanta, Los Angeles, New York and Miami.
How will Obama fix it?
He will shove Marx’s ideas onto hard working American citizens. It’s going to look like this example from an unknown Internet blog:
“Today on my
way to lunch I passed a homeless guy with a sign that read "Vote
Obama, I need the money." I laughed.
“Once in the restaurant my server wore an "Obama 08" tie, again I laughed as he had given away his political preference--just imagine the coincidence.
“When the bill came I decided not to tip the server and explained to him that I was exploring the Obama redistribution of wealth concept. He stood there in disbelief while I told him that I was going to
redistribute his tip to someone who I deemed more in need--the homeless guy outside. The server angrily stormed from my sight.
“I went outside, gave the homeless guy $5 and told him to thank the server inside as I've decided he could use the money more. The homeless guy was grateful.
“At the end of my rather unscientific redistribution experiment I realized the homeless guy was grateful for the money he did not earn, but the waiter was pretty angry that I gave away the money he did earn even though the actual recipient needed money more.
“I guess redistribution of wealth is an easier thing to swallow in concept than in practical application.”
Great Britain’s Prime Minister during WWII, Winston Churchill said, “Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy; its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery.”
As this nation moves away from personal accountability and personal responsibility, we diminish our U.S. Constitution, our Republic and our civilization.

Bob Woodruff of ABC asked input from all citizens concerning the future of our planet. Go to www.earth2100.tv for a sobering reality check as to what we face and to what I have been writing about for the past 20 years. Our ‘window’ to change to a balanced population and non-polluting energy diminishes every day we listen to irresponsible media and thus ignore the blatant symptoms manifesting all over America and the planet.
This three minute interview with Adam Schrager on “Your Show” May 4, 2008, NBC Channel 9 News, addresses the ramifications of adding 120 million people to USA in 35 years and six million people to Colorado as to water shortages, air pollution, loss of farmland, energy costs and degradation of quality of life. In the interview, Frosty Wooldridge explains the ramifications of adding 120 million people to the USA in 35 years. He advances new concepts such as a “Colorado Carrying Capacity Policy”; “Colorado Environmental Impact Policy”; “Colorado Water Usage Policy”; “Colorado Sustainable Population Policy”. Nationally, the USA needs a "National Sustainable Population Policy" to determine the carrying capacity of this nation for the short and long term. Wooldridge is available for interviews on radio and TV having interviewed on ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN and FOX.
