How Obama Thinks (Best, most thorough article on Obama's pysche I have seen yet)
forbes ^ | 9/7/2010 | Dinesh D'Souza

Obama Sr. was an economist, and in 1965 he published an important article in the East Africa Journal called "Problems Facing Our Socialism." Obama Sr. wasn't a doctrinaire socialist; rather, he saw state appropriation of wealth as a necessary means to achieve the anticolonial objective of taking resources away from the foreign looters and restoring them to the people of Africa. For Obama Sr. this was an issue of national autonomy. "Is it the African who owns this country? If he does, then why should he not control the economic means of growth in this country?"

As he put it, "We need to eliminate power structures that have been built through excessive accumulation so that not only a few individuals shall control a vast magnitude of resources as is the case now." The senior Obama proposed that the state confiscate private land and raise taxes with no upper limit. In fact, he insisted that "theoretically there is nothing that can stop the government from taxing 100% of income so long as the people get benefits from the government commensurate with their income which is taxed

That is what post modernism, revisionist history and social justice are all about. It is what the One world government, UN Agenda 21, The Third Way, open borders, cap and trade and global warming were all about, too.

This is what is being taught at our colleges and universities across the country. They have developed a language to describe everything involved with post modernist thought that the meanings are so obscure as to open to interpretation. Like Clinton’s remark, “that depends on what the meaning of ‘is’ is.” Much of it must have been dreamed up by Noam Chomsky. They pride themselves on being able to converse with each other and deride outsiders as uninformed rubes.

Soothesayer, there IS hope: partly because the millions of lunatics who voted for Obama constitute a river that's a mile wide but an inch deep. There's millions of them that won't even vote this November. They're shallow, period.

Obama was their chia head, their political hula hoop, their fad. They will not continue to uphold him, because that's tiring, dude, they want to go back to the sofa and have some more cheez doodles. They do not add up to a lasting political force, they are not Brown Shirts or Hitler Youth or the Komsomol or anything like it, because they have neither political drive nor discipline --- and Zero knows it.

Read the tagline.

"Leftists just need to be put to death before they destroy any more lives."

You shouldn't talk that way: it is morally depraved to speak of "putting to death" such a broad swath of people, as if we had the authority of the Archangels of Armageddon when we are, in fact, just fellow fallible human beings and sinners ourselves.

Sooth, we can hand the Leftists a solid political defeat. Beyond that, no malice. There's no need to indulge violent thoughts.

I don't think that in the end it matters who was "really" (genetically) his father.

He spent his youth with acute feelings of abandonment, was painfully detached from his white mother and white grandmother, came to think it was because of his black essence, then came to idealize his purported Kenyan father as the key to his true self, his true history, and his true destiny.

At that point --- not at the point of his conception --- this lost soul rejected the Barry Soetoro mask and became Barack Hussein Obama Jr.

Barack Senior filled the compelling social/psychological "role" of supplying Barry's lost blackness, lost masculinity, and lost identity--- even if the actual sperm donor turned out to be that pervert Davis.

As I see it.

Time is running out for the peaceful velvet revolution proposed here on FR and other conservative organizations. The last chance for free elections are 2010 and 2012.

If I have to choose between the annihilation of the leftists or seeing a generation of youths peddle on the street to survive...the choice is simple.

Mostly a matter of making the main points we see in the article, and the RESULTS such a belief system as Obamas creates.

Wow. The power of the rather pathetic attempt of the abandoned child to undo the abandonment by dressing himself up in the too large and now outmoded intellectual clothing of the one who dumped him.

Barry, your father (if he really was your father) screwed you over and brought you into a life where you were repeatedly abandoned and shuttled between worlds just as you were becoming familiar with them (first Hawaii, then Indonesia, then back to Hawaii, then into the strange world of Planet Frank of the Ambered Shorts). Nothing you do will undo that. Stop trying to make everyone else as miserable as you are. They may not take to it any more kindly than you did. You serve at the will of the people. You fooled them into thinking you were something you were not so as to have enough power to put flesh on your father's dreams. I think once again you're going to feel the pain of getting dumped. This time, though, it will truly be your own fault; your dreams will wither away like the flesh on your dad's bones and the only thing people will feel is a sense of joy and relief at being out from under the control of your own personal demons.

This is just more proof that Obastard hates whites, hates the United States, and hates rich people, even though by all measures he is rich, too.

Thanks for the flag. Yes, it is most enlightening and goes a long way toward explaining much of what Dear Leader has done.

I could not disagree with you more regarding the downside of term limits. Think Strom Thurmond, Robert Byrd, and Supreme Court Justice William O. Douglas. And then there is the current batch of long term elected reps and senators. McCain and Castle, 70 something, still hanging on and neither a reliable Rep vote. Term limits are needed for as long as it takes to clean our bureaucratic house and are the only solution to the corruption of earmarks, favorable legislation in exchange for votes, etc. etc. The power of incumbency is well known and exists for a reason. It acts to keep an incumbent in and a replacement out. The key to good government is of course to elect good people who will represent the citizens who have voted for them. Eight years limit for President has worked since Roosevelt overstayed his welcome and can be good for every other govt office. No more life time appointments for any other govt paid office either. The idea that these lifetime assignments would stop corruption from various sources, money, threats, politics, partiality to particular interests etc. has not worked. Stop the entitlement mentality that develops when office holders consider themselves out of reach for the consequence of their misuse of office. George Washington set the example for leadership. Responded to the request of his country and stepped down when he felt his particular part was done. Became a good citizen and let other leadership contribute. We would not now be a Republic if a King George Washington had set a precedent for royalty to be the destiny of this new country.

[Obama Sr.] "theoretically there is nothing that can stop the government from taxing 100% of income so long as the people get benefits from the government commensurate with their income which is taxed"
Any regime that can take away wealth from the most powerful can take it from everyone -- and that is exactly what it will do.
