A Fool’s Speech Delivered in Kansas. Hey Barack, We ain’t in Kansas No More.
By: Dr. Phil Taverna
Obama was out campaigning in the middle of the country. Much has been said about this speech in Kansas. But we need to discuss what he said and does it make any sense. And is this president as smart as the Liberals want you to believe he is. So he read from his teleprompters as such:
Long before the recession hit, hard work stopped paying off for too many people. Fewer and fewer of the folks who contributed to the success of our economy actually benefited from that success. Those at the very top grew wealthier from their incomes and their investments — wealthier than ever before. But everybody else struggled with costs that were growing and paychecks that weren’t — and too many families found themselves racking up more and more debt just to keep up.
Does anyone believe this liberal propaganda! One of the problems with all of this is who is at the top? Who is wealthy, and who is everyone else? Someone has to tell this clown that not too many people have become wealthy under the Obama failed policies. Yes if you were on the receiving end of his Christmas present known as the stimulus package, then you may have become wealthier. But not many people became wealthy under Obama in the stock market no matter how hard they hoped and changed!
Maybe a few made some money selling short with the help of some insider information, but by and large most people if not all people lost money in the market. So who is Obama talking about? People like his buddy Immelt made tons of money, but he would have made tons either way, it was easier having Obama on the inside.
Maybe Obama is confused. Unemployment is only at 9 % for most of his term. And inflation has been for the most part at a stand still except for energy which Obama likes to drive up with his wasted policies. He wanted to tax and cap all energy users. And he still does. Give him another chance and he will!
So if 89% of the people are working and getting paychecks, then who is he talking to? Again I hate to repeat myself, but folks have been raking up debt since the 60’s. Then they would just refinance their homes and start all over again. The thrifty in the world will look down upon those, but isn’t that exactly what our politicians have done with the American economy. They just keep spending, and they expect foreigners to come to America and build all these businesses and hire Americans at fair wages so they can have taxes to pay for all this political and ridiculous spending. They better start looking some where over the rainbow!
Fun thing about this speech is that Obama was speaking in a Republican State. They must have had to bus people in to fill the room and keep the occupiers out! Just a few years ago it was easy for the great one to fill the coliseum. But I think those days are behind us… Thank God!
The point is that the American people are still working hard and doing a great job. But the politicians and the banks have sabotaged these folks in order to make tons of money. Does Obama include himself in this group of thieves? They have a new thing about stealing from the rich, a Robin Hood thing, but these folks have been stealing from all taxpayers for a long time.
Aren’t you tired of all this nonsense?
Wouldn’t it be great, the next time that Obama gives one of these stupid and useless and for the most part empty and meaningless speeches all the folks would stand up and walk out? Now that would be a powerful message for the liberals. Why wait till November?
Now, for many years, credit cards and home equity loans papered over this harsh reality. But in 2008, the house of cards collapsed. We all know the story by now: Mortgages sold to people who couldn’t afford them, or even sometimes understand them. Banks and investors allowed to keep packaging the risk and selling it off. Huge bets — and huge bonuses — made with other people’s money on the line. Regulators who were supposed to warn us about the dangers of all this, but looked the other way or didn’t have the authority to look at all.
Do you ever notice that they never tell you how many people were given mortgages who could not afford them? They never tell you how many years that they paid the mortgages? For the most part this does not sound true. But like anything the liberals say, if enough people repeat it over and over then it becomes the gospel truth.
If you have a job and you can pay your mortgage for a year, then why couldn’t you pay your mortgage for 20 years? How many people stopped paying their mortgages because their home was under water and they couldn’t refinance? Thanks to banks like Chase Manhattan Bank, they changed the rules and started using appraisals that were low-balled in 2008. Shouldn’t congress be investigating these banks? How come no one is investigating Frank and Dodd and the mortgage industry?
Messina wrote about Obama: ”This country succeeds when everyone gets a fair shot, when everyone does their fair share, and when everyone plays by the same rules. These aren’t Democratic values or Republican values. These aren’t 1 percent values or 99 percent values. They’re American values. And we have to reclaim them.”
Those are the values we’re fighting for in this election. And no matter who our opponent is, he or she won’t share them — the other side’s candidates all want to let Wall Street write its own rules and give more tax breaks to millionaires and billionaires.
We’ve seen how that kind of economic plan plays out. As President Obama said yesterday: “It doesn’t work. It has never worked. It didn’t work when it was tried in the decade before the Great Depression … And it didn’t work when we tried it during the last decade.”
If this is Obama’s plan, then we are in deep doo-doo. First off the rules have never been fair and never will be fair. If you have a judge or politician in your pocket politically, it will never be fair. Does Obama plan to remove all the liberal judges from the bench and replace them with conservatives? Probably not! So why speak of fairness?
No one wants Wall Street to make their own rules. But didn’t the Democrats let banks like Chase Manhattan make their own rules when they sabotaged the housing industry to win the 2008 election?
The question Obama needs to answer in a real debate is if we tax the rich more than we do now, how many real jobs will he create? Odds are there will be none created. But Obama has visions of creating more government jobs with that money. Won’t that increase the deficit in the long run as their benefits and retirements come due?
It is thinking like Obama that got us in this mess in the first place. Obama dreams about following the yellow brick road to raising taxes and not about spending cuts. Obama is sure that the economy will turn around. How is that going to happen by raising taxes? Is China going to start building factories in America!
If the politicians like Obama stayed out of the housing market and just started making spending cuts America will be able to fix the problem.
But in the end if this is all that Obama has to offer, he is not the smartest president we ever had. Obama and Carter will go down in history as Dumb and Dumber. You make the call.
I wrote in my book that socialism and capitalism can not co-exist. Socialism needs huge amounts of money from capitalism to make it all work. Can anyone say China! Liberals like Obama and Carter have been trying to kill capitalism for decades.
The best way to have any semblance of fairness is to increase the amount of opportunity to succeed. That can only be achieved through capitalism. Look at all the social programs that the socialist have ruined: Social security, healthcare and the post office to name a few.
We need elected officials that understand these simple principles. Stop spending and get out of the way! America can fix itself without some useless politicians trying to micromanage the marketplace while they line their pockets and their friends’ pockets with taxpayer dollars!
We don’t need a wizard from OZ or anywhere else. Just stop this crazy spending!
