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?
It’s not “theft”, it is leveling the playing field....
Which is immediately carpet-bombed and turned into a vast minefield, inflicting damage on EVERYBODY. Strangers and brothers alike.
That's wonderful, Hussein .... but what about all of us white folks ?
if you are your brother’s keeper, then keep your brother with YOUR money. you have no right to force me, via taxes, to pay for YOUR brother. I’m busy paying for mine.
This piece of S$% has his aunt in a housing project and his brother in a mud hut in Kenya on $12 a month.
Is that what he wants for us? YES ! ! ! !
NO BAMA NO WAY - A B O!!!
He’s such an idiot.
just telling all the hippies up in Ben and Jerry Land what they want to hear
i’m reminded ot a scene from teh three stooges when Moe proclaims loudly “I’ll fight to the last drop of...” and he points to Shemp “...YOUR blood!”
He ain’t my brother.
He ain’t my keeper.
I’d rather be on my own economically than be a government parasite.
Everybody keeps reading this passage wrong. God NEVER said that Cain was his brother’s keeper. He said that Cain was his brother’s murderer. Read it closely.
That said, animals have keepers. Sane human adults don’t.
No wait ZERO, I take it back.
He will bring him over here and make him a useless Govt employee with OUR money. He sure as hell won't use any of his. . .
But not your half-brother’s keeper.
Exactly! If you read and understand the Bible, it puts a difference between charity and theft. If 0bama0 is really his brother's keeper as he says he is, why is his half-brother living in squalor in Kenya on about $12 per month while 0bama0 lives in the lap of luxury with multiple millions of dollars in the bank?
God puts a difference between charity and theft, but socialists don't. To them, charity begins with theft, not of their wealth, but everybody else's.
If 0bama0 is really his brother's keeper as he says he is, why is his half-brother living in squalor in Kenya on about $12 per month while 0bama0 lives in the lap of luxury with multiple millions of dollars in the bank?
Look for massive, nation-wide, well-coordinated disruption immediately before and during the Republican Convention. Occupy was the trial balloon.
Any bets on how long before our first Affirmative Action Anus POTUS appears in a hoodie?
Of course, if Barry wants to be his brother’s keeper in the biblical sense, then Barry needs to use his personal resources to do so. Confiscating one person’s resources and giving them to another is not being one’s brother’s keeper; it’s stealing. Were Barry really concerned about others, he’d stop with the racial and economic politics and start working for, rather than against, America. I’m not holding my breath.
You know what, yo? Why don’t you just keep to yourself.
No good; we are only HALF bros...
More moronic ravings from OAD.
Once again, Obama selectively chooses biblical verses out of context, and to suit and support his socialist ideals.
Hey, don’t be so negative. He’s got his aunt and uncle on the dole up in MA - Uncle Stinky and Aunt Zatootie. Plus he got them the best lawyers to fight their DUI and illegal immigration status.
To these people, the Bible, like the constitution,
is simply another means by which to trick people into accepting advancing the agenda of communism.
Even the Devil can quote Scripture.
My word, even the Pilgrims disagreed with this approach.
Their crop yield increased notably once they began having everyone sow their own, instead of doing it collectively. The latter course saw fewer crops and more idlers. The former produced more food and more enterprise.
If you're not black, hispanic, gay or a liberal woman - obama is not your president.
Cain was trying to pull an "Obama" by misdirecting God with his phoney answer (like Obama, Cain underestimates other's intelligence).
My answer would be that even if I am MY brother's keeper, but I'm not YOUR brother's keeper.
(Karl Marx, intellectual, philosopher, economist, revolutionary socialist, communist, 1875 "Critique")
"Every citizen will make his particular contribution to the activities of his community according to his capacity, his talent and his age. It is on this basis that his duties will be determined, in conformity with the distributive laws."
(Etienne Morelly, French utopian communist, "Code of Nature", 1755).
Obama's relentless agenda is not new....it's only well studied and learned.
