Whispering the Truth in Obama's America
The American Thinker ^ | 5-22-12 | Stella Paul

Posted on 05/22/2012 6:22:20 AM PDT by afraidfortherepublic

The other day, I called a friend and interrupted her mid-cry. She'd just returned from putting her only son on a plane to China, where he was moving after giving up on getting a job here.

The next day in the supermarket, I bumped into another friend, looking downcast. She told me her only son was planning his move to Hong Kong, after a fruitless year-long search for a job in the financial sector.

"Obama's destroying the economy," she told me; then she looked nervously around at our hyper-Blue State neighbors. "I feel like I have to whisper, or they're going to come and arrest me."

Welcome to Obama's America 2012, a joy-free zone in which the best and brightest youth are flocking to a Communist dictatorship, because they see more hope of economic opportunity there.

With 1 out of 2 recent college graduates out of work, the future leaders of the nation are hanging out in Mom's basement, enjoying their parents' health insurance coverage, while nodding off in a government-induced haze.

But many of the most driven, entrepreneurial types -- the kind of unstoppable hustlers who built America -- are bolting and may never return.

Why should they when they might land a fine job with that quintessential American company, Procter & Gamble? Its beauty unit is slamming the door on Ohio, and moving its headquarters to Singapore.

Two nuggets FTA:

1) Well, here’s an interesting fact: a new survey reveals that the number of Muslims in the U.S. has soared 67% since the 9/11 attacks. Thanks to our State Department’s massive importation of Muslim immigrants, Islam is now the fastest growing religion in America, up from 1 million in 2000 to 2.6 million today.

2) Driving out wealth creators and importing potential destroyers may seem like national suicide, but it’s a winning formula for mansion-dwelling, Marxist politicians. Just ask François (”3 Homes on the Riviera”) Hollande, who catapulted into the French presidency by garnishing 93% of the Muslim vote.

Yesterday I learned that for the first time since they’ve been keeping unemployment records the MAJORITY of those on unemployment have college degrees. All age groups represented.

And yet....the administration talks about the economic recovery we’re in...

Indeed. Maybe she's read about the ghetto "teacher" and the student who dared to ask a question about The One.

This country will never be the same after electing this poser.

He’s damaged the SC. He’s purposely dragged his feet and replied “interesting” while the economy burns to the ground.

He’s the poster child for voter ignorance and stupidity.

Me too, but I really don’t care. Anyone so delusional and complicit with what this communist POFS is doing is not someone I want in my life.

This is the truth: Whenever I find out that a person voted for Obama or that they are a Democrat period, I LOSE RESPECT FOR THEM INSTANTLY.

Per all of the polls, he’s at 50% approval... After O-Care, destroying jobs, various types of warfare... and yet he still gets positive marks from half of Americans... Mind-boggling

Hmmmmm. That figure sounds familiar.

Half of Americans do not pay ANY income tax.

Half of Americans receive some form of government assistance.

Do you suppose there is some sort of relationship?

Certainly a big part of it... Lots of overlap between his natural constituents and those wanting a handout.

Some of my small business acquaintances have ‘Gone Galt’ but there are those of us who are on ‘Slow Roll’. I am incredulous that my fellow Americans have chosen collectivism. And that’s who I hold responsible for this fiasco, the Americans who voted for the ‘Progressives’. They are setting the trend of ‘voting for a living’ or at least for the ones who promise them the most largess.
If Obama is reelected, those hundreds of thousands of jobs lost after the 2008 election will have plenty of company. The other shoe will drop and the path to poverty will be set. Why work when there is no benefit?
