Barack Obama's brother lives on $1 per day ....(Is George Obama proud of Kenya ?)
MINA ^ | Wednesday, 20 August 2008

Posted on 08/20/2008 7:31:32 AM PDT by IrishMike

Democratic US Presidential candidate Barrack Obama has a forgotten brother in Africa, whose family is at the edge of existence, earning less than $1 per day.

George Husein Owango Obama, who lives outside the media spotlight, recently decided to speak about his relationship with Barack Obama. In his interview for "Vanity Fair" he spoke about his life, however avoided giving responses to direct questions to describe his brother.

"We live here with less than a dollar per day" said George, who lives in the periphery of Nairobit. Up until now the US Press managed to track down seven of Obama's brothers, the only one missing was George.

"I met Barack briefly, two years ago. We talked, but he was somehow strange, as if I didn't speak to a brother." added George Obama.

Barack wants to tax us until we’re all living on that same amount.

“as if I didn’t speak to a brother.”

Isn’t he a half brother?

Hmm. Michele Obama complains about the high cost of living in Chicago on a family income around $500K (plus the book income), then suggests that she’ll spend her tax rebate on earrings, while Barack’s family needs help and gets ignored by him.

Why am I not surprised?

"Wonder what he pays in taxes."

Not enough, according to Obamessiah.

If there is anyone in the world living on 50 cents a day, brother George must be taxed down to that level in the interests of fairness.

Obama said so the other day. Economic growth, property rights, and whether the poor get richer have no standing compared to the right of the Obamessiah to redistribute wealth if anyone is making more than another.

Maybe Obama’s half brother can hookup with Tony Rezko and magically acquire a million-dollar hut.

Look, let’s at least be fair about this. George is no more connected to Barack than I am to you.

The fact is that both were spawn of a “rolling stone” father, separated by 20 years and different continents. My guess is that Barack met George just that one time.

His obligations? Probably none.

If every FReeper donated one lousy dollar we could all stick it to Obama.

The Telegraph reports his income as $1 a month.

Why does this article say $1 a day?

Barry Hussien really needs to explain to his friends at the NY Times and CBS why he is in favor of protecting trees, snails, and the polar ice cap while he allows his BROTHER to suffer in absolute poverty. What a fraud this creep is. Imagine this jerk hnaging out with his racist wife at the Ritz Carleton in Maui chowing on filet mignon while his own brother is starving- What an ass !

“Papa Was A Rolling Stone”

It was the third of september
That day I’ll always remember, yes I will
‘cause that was the day that my daddy died

Never had a chance to see him, no
Never heard nothing but bad things about him
Mama, I’m depending on you to tell me the truth
Mama just hung her head and said

[chorus]
“papa was a rollin’ stone
Wherever he laid his hat was his home
And when he died
All he left us was alone”
[repeat]

Hey, mama, is it true what they say
That papa never worked aday in his life
Some bad talk going around sayin’
Papa had three outside children
And another wife
That ain’t right

It's all so confusing, I agree.
If Barack used to be Barry,
what was or what will George become ?

The only consistency .... both are HUSSEIN in the middle !

“Whatsoever Obama does to the least of Obama’s brothers, that Obama does unto Him.”

When He was hungry, Obama showed curiosity during his visit to Africa.

When He was naked, Obama distanced himself in his book.

Now enter into _______? (Surely not the “home of My Father” as the song goes.)

The writer of this post obviously failed comprehensive reading. The above quote comes from the post on the Drudge report.

Barack discovers his “African Roots” to back-up a fairy-tale story in his biography, and give himself good “street-cred” in South Chicago. But otherwise, knows nothing about and has nothing to do with these relatives.

Just a quick follow-up.

We can criticize Obama for a lot of things, but not taking care of a half-brother who is the son of a drunk, profligate father, whom he probably met only once, is the least of them.

Is that an un-christian attitude? In the grand scheme of things, probably, but specifically, probably not.

Now, if YOU were to send help to George, THAT would be Christian.
