Obama Calls for More Redistribution of Wealth, Declaring: I Am My Brothers Keeper By Terence P. Jeffrey April 2, 2012
(CNSNews.com) - In a campaign speech in Vermont on Friday, President Barack Obama referenced the biblical story of Cain and Abel in condemning what he called "you're-on-your-own economics" while arguing for a number of policies that involve government transferring wealth from one group of citizens to anotherincluding providing public schools with more money for teachers salaries, freezing the interest rates on government-backed student loans, supporting companies developing biofuels, electric batteries and wind and solar power and funding scientists who are doing research on stem cells and climate change.
I hear politicians talking about values in an election year, Obama said. I hear a lot about that. Let me tell you about values. Hard work, personal responsibility--those are values. But looking out for one another. Thats a value. The idea that were all in this together. I am my brothers keeper. I am my sisters keeper. Thats a value.

"And I intend to keep them with your money."
Being your brother’s keeper implies it’s YOUR money, time, and dedication. Stealing money from strangers to give to special victim groups is theft.
How about his real brother that lives in a hut in Kenya?
Does he mean his brother living in a hut on 2 bucks a month?
Make a public show of redistributing their wealth.
Let's see Obambi frog walking all his minnions to public housing after he gives away all their money...
Leftists at the sheeperal level have ONE driving motivation - to feel good about themselves with no personal sacrifice.
They can think of themselves as “good people” for advocating that the poor be given money, while giving none of it from their own pockets.
“I am a Communist”.
No, Zero, that is NOT a value.
He thinks all his brothers and sisters are mentally handicapped and needs a keeper. He’ll have us all wearing rubber helmets soon.
The leftists’ messiah calls it “social religion”.
He loves to try to use the bible to smack Christians and preach what it REALLY means.
Another “teaching moment” at the White Hut this coming Sunday?
*****I am my brothers keeper. I am my sisters keeper. Thats a value.*****
Is he keeping his brother in Kenya or his uncle illegally in the USA? Using his OWN money is he?
He should stop sending the wife,kids & entourage all over the globe and save ordinary tax-payers - that would have some value.
I take it he never read the story where this phrase came from?
More proof of Obama’s ‘Christianity’: cite the words said by Cain to God - to try and ward off responsibility for his murder of Abel - as an argument for instituting socialism.
I get the impression it’s always other people’s wealth he wants to redistribute, not his....
all but that one
If it didn’t cost so much in SS protection,
I’d say they should “vacation” at soup kitchens.
But looking out for one another. Thats a value....No, it’s not. It’s a government redistribution scheme. I’ll take care of my own, thank you. The skank, the drug addict, the lazy bastards can ALL take a hike. As the saying goes “God helps those who help themselves” And it wasn’t meant He will help them who get into the till at the local liquor store.
“I am my brothers keeper. I am my sisters keeper. AND I WANT TO BE YOUR KEEPER TOO...”
Stem cells and global warming?
