Did you get a ping to http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/chat/2896349/posts?page=221#221 ?
Trying to figure out where I’m at.
>>So, what next?
Read Romans 1:18++
“Because of this, God gave them over...”
such a system “doesn’t work” and “has never worked”
i noticed he ignored all history before 1920.
...seems to me, things generally worked great,
until 1912, and the Constitution was fundementally changed.
Thanks for this post!
Your statement reminded of the first time I saw the movie "idiocracy".
I thought it was funny and clever... but highly improbable.
Now I wonder if the movie wasn't somewhat prophetic.
If you want to destroy America you have to go after the financial systems and foundational structures because capitalism and the tenants of Christianity are the backbone of this country. We are wildly successful because of this. Obama and his ilk are doing everything they can to KNOWINGLY tear apart this system.
Ignorant or not, progressives are evil prix for trying to dismantle the greatest, most successful economic and culturally advanced system in the HISTORY of the world. They must fail God willing and the crick don't rise!
First, you jug-earred moron. Even the poor in this country live better than many that would be considered middle-class in other countries. That's because of capitalism and because a rising tide lifts all boats higher. It's absolutely true. Obama and his ilk don't like the idea that people can make themselves better off by their own efforts, and therefore have more than those that didn't put forth the same effort. They don't want to admit that some live with less because of choices they made, and not because government and society were unfair to them.
"ESTABLISH THE LAW FOR EDUCATING THE COMMON PEOPLE; THIS IT IS THE BUSINESS OF THE STATE TO EFFECT AND ON A GENERAL PLAN"
Rush Limbaugh on:
President Obama’s Osawatomie Speech was a Marxist Attack on America

Shuckin' and jivin', and even his empty chairheads can see right through it...
He says while standing in a nation whose rise of freedom and prosperity has exceeded all historical precedents in speed and magnitude and has been so phenomenal that it has literally lifted the lives of half the inhabitants of the planet to a level only the very wealthy knew only two centuries ago.
0bama is a cretin.
Not surprised, Obama KNOWS he is on the OUTS.
How'bout a nice game of Sabbatean dialectic sheeple-pong?
Right? Who was Ambassador Roland "The Godfather of Subprime" Arnall?
Left? Who is Penny Pritkzer? Is she a Marxist - or just one of the usual NyLon-wearing sheeple-fleecers laughing, atop the pyramid, at the silly proles bouncing impotently, headlessly, back and forth across the sacrificial table whilst she and her ilk pretend to make the Sun go dark ala the Weathermen's predicted behavior...
Dn't need n Weatherman t see which waybama's wind
"Behind the Violence, Says Jane Alpert, Was Sex"
--November 09, 1981--
"The leaders of the Weather Underground, she believes, followed a similar pattern of constantly shifting sexual alliances..."
"He [Bill Ayers] also writes about the Weathermen's sexual experimentation as they tried to 'smash monogamy.' The Weathermen were 'an army of lovers,' he says, and describes having had different sexual partners, including his best male friend."
Source: New York Times, September 11, 2001: "No Regrets for a Love Of Explosives; In a Memoir of Sorts, a War Protester Talks of Life With the Weathermen"
"...the Weathermen, when not engaged in group sex, committed such revolutionary acts as parading with a Viet Cong flag through a local park on Independence Day and spray-painting the walls of a high school with the slogans, "Off the Pigs," "Viet Cong Will Win," and "F#$k U.S. Imperialism."..."
"What happens next bears watching closely, as does the response of the president, ex-Speaker Pelosi, and others on the left. Encouraged by leftists in the Democratic Party and funded by left-leaning nonprofit organizations and celebrity contributors, Occupy Wall Street may in time morph into something resembling the radical factions of the late 1960s and 1970s."
Obama’s words fit the photo.
Americans must look to a more activist government that taxes more, spends more and regulates more.
Obama’s got nothing but bad ideas bad mouth bad past.
BHF: “Like moths to the flame.”
You’re sure right. The human mind amazes me. How can people so completely separate the reality of their day to day interactions with others and government policy? No one, NO ONE, would let other people vote to redistribute what that person owns. It would be like comparing bank accounts before a party, and whoever has the most gets to pay. Yet, that’s exactly what President Obama proposes for the economy.
My point about the argument being compelling is a very important one. There are people in Russia and East Germany today who would love to return to the days of the USSR. Those in power want a return to their lives of privilege at the expense of their comrades. Those who are unwilling to work for what they want hope for free stuff. It doesn’t matter if they have to beggar their neighbor so long as they’re taken care of.
I see it as the difference between adults and children. Leftists, in my opinion, are children, and just like children, they love fantasies. That’s what President Obama proposes! In his world, no matter who you are or what you do you’ll be taken care of. Food, shelter, a free education, etc. are yours simply by virtue of being born. You don’t have to earn it. The community owes you!
I served for over two decades in the Cold War to defeat this wicked, but persuasive, ideology.
exactly, plus those college kids are away from parents and feel they have to fit in thus the lefty kooks and those who are employed there are very vocal and making it appear to be an outsdier if you have right wing views.
so much for diversity and tolerance hey .
"Sure, they say, there will be winners and losers," Obama continued. "But if the winners do really well, then jobs and prosperity will eventually trickle down to everybody else. And, they argue, even if prosperity doesnt trickle down, well, thats the price of liberty.
"Now, its a simple theory," said Obama. "And we have to admit, its one that speaks to our rugged individualism and our healthy skepticism of too much government. Thats in Americas DNA. And that theory fits well on a bumper sticker. But heres the problem: It doesnt work. It has never worked.
"It didnt work when it was tried in the decade before the Great Depression," said Obama. "Its not what led to the incredible postwar booms of the 50s and 60s. And it didnt work when we tried it during the last decade. I mean, understand, its not as if we havent tried this before..."
Ping for later
My eight year-old understands it.
There are no words to express my intense hatred for Obama.
. . . But centrally planned economies work marvelously. Just ask what’s left of the soviet union.
It may not be quite gone yet, but it's getting chillingly close.
This is definately not your father's America. A generation ago, this Marxist SOB would be lucky to sniff 20% of the vote.
The GOP should use this as their campaign ad. Just use Obama’s own words.
I just read “Guns, Germs and Steel” which has a biological view of how a hunter-gatherer economy can yield to a farmer economy, and eventually to a manufactured goods economy, and governments suitable to each. There is a tendency for government to turn into kleptocracy, as all increases in productivity are claimed by the government. That is what wee are seeing in Obama. He wants all increases in efficiency to be funneled through him so he gets his cut.
If such increases in productivity are not restricted by government, people live better, and need less government. Obama and his minions live in reduced circumstances, such as minor but annoying members of of homeowner’s associations.
Incredible statements by Zero. This is some good material for GOP campaign adds. Zero seems to be completely ignoring the huge, almost uninterrupted economic expansion starting in 1981 and running all the way to 2001 that was fueled by the Reagan tax cuts and policies of limited government by Reagan, Bush 41, and to a lesser extend by Clinton. Clinton’s tax increases slowed the economy during his first term, but we were pulled out of that sluggish economy by one big factor: the initial build-out of the commercial internet starting in 1995. Without the internet boom we would have had another four years of sluggish economic growth in Clinton’s second term.
This speech by Obama is filled with false and amazingly foolish statements by King Barry. The Romney/Ryan team should get some video or at least the text of this speech and start going through it to find statements that can easily be proven to be false by our economic history. There is some great material in this speech for Romney attack ads.
“Preserve the middle class” or create a proletariat?
Until the federal government forcing banks to lend to un-creditworthy individuals caused huge bundles of mortgages to become unmarketable, causing a massive implosion of the capital markets and the puncturing inflated real estate values, it worked just fine. Sabotaging the free markets with such hocus pocus gimmicks is what didn’t work, and the Dems fought for that gimickery tooth and nail, and they still want more of the same. Destroying wealth is not redistribution of wealth, merely destruction.
“He is saying that government creates wealth and it redistributes it. He says you have to have both. Fascinating. I recommend it. Great story too.”
Okay, I’m mystified as to why you say we may be missing the brilliance of Hugo who says that government CREATES WEALTH AND IT REDISTRIBUTES IT AND YOU HAVE TO HAVE BOTH. What the Hey? Just what brilliance are you referring to?
Maybe he really is looking forward to moving to Hawaii in a few months. He probably has billions of our money stashed away by now plus he can expect someone else to pay for his mansion by the sea and the taxpayers will furnish security service, free medical and a retirement check. For someone who really does not seem to like work at all we have to wonder what he gains by being reelected. Only an utter idiot could think that he would solve any of America’s problems in another four years so why not dump it all on the GOP and then stand on the sidelines and piss and moan like a wounded Kenyan while being paid huge sums to read a teleprompter at some university for fools.
He has said this in the past, it’s in dreams from my real father, on video!
RNC needs that video, with juxtaposed video of a little girl selling lemonade.
Keep switching back and forth, watching the girl smile making a sale, and Obama condemning her.
There are many citizens near to publicly proving publicly Obama was/is not eligible for POTUSA. If there was any support from anyone in the so called Republican party this guy would have been exposed long ago. I didn’t notice Trump at the GOP convention and wonder if his to close to the truth didn’t wash with the king makers. What I do wonder about is what happens when all the history comes out. I will bet there are a lot of untold even nefarious truths about Obama. Perhaps Obama will be a long way on his retirement to Kenya and not Hawaii. The Kenyans might even be a little disappointed if Obama retires to Hawaii and who knows what that might bring out in the open. Obama probably wouldn’t be in a position of power to send two ships loaded with relief supplies to Kenya. Maybe perhaps his friends like Soros could still buy off the Kenyans one way or another. When such happens my disgust at the people old and young will make me vomit to look at them after looking at my WWII service records and the medals of my only brother killed on Okinawa.
Free markets allow greater participation by the People in the economy. Only a fascist would talk like this.
They suffer from moral insecurity.
This is pretty damn brazen, coming from one of the Perps of the First Part, talking about the housing bubble. He was ACORN's of-counsel in the New York case in the late 90's that forced banks to lend to uncreditworthy borrowers for the purpose of buying houses they couldn't afford.
This guy and the rest of his ACORN wrecking-crew were the trick-perpetrators, not the mortgage companies and banks.
It would not surprise me in the least bit to find out Obama DOES NOT work at all. I do not think he has an inkling what it means to be President, much less the duties which are involved.
The worst choice this country has ever made for head of state, and it was all done in the name of faux white guilt!
I think Barky must lie even in his dreams, when he's asleep. He keeps dragooning Theodore Roosevelt into the ranks of orthodox socialism and Marxism-Leninism to support himself and supply his dearth of American precedents. Consider this quote from Obozo's Osawatomie speech of last December:
Now, for this, Roosevelt was called a radical. He was called a socialist – even a communist. But today, we are a richer nation and a stronger democracy because of what he fought for in his last campaign: an eight-hour work day and a minimum wage for women, insurance for the unemployed and for the elderly, and those with disabilities; political reform and a progressive income tax. (Emphasis added.)
He made this same reference during his lying campaign for Obamacare: that Roosevelt in 1912 had campaigned on a platform of Medicare and Obamacare, and that it was up to us to "redeem" Roosevelt's visionary promise.
This was Barky cribbing a Rushmore president to be his stiff, his dime-store Indian testimonial, his (as boilerroom yaks say) "singer".
Whereas in fact Roosevelt's idea was actually much more akin to key-man insurance that has a disability-income or income-continuation plan, that compensates the employer for continuing to pay their disabled man. It was not Sovietcare or Obozocare or any other sovietizing health-insurance plan. Roosevelt never, to my knowledge, ever endorsed such a thing.
And he spat on Communists.
s But Barky knows you don't need to know that.
Is that your answer to every question? Please stop your spamming. This is a good thread and you are posting irrelevancies.
Actually big government crony protectionism was a large contributor to the depression.
"Its not what led to the incredible postwar booms of the 50s and 60s.
Is he suggesting that we use our air force to physically destroy the industrial infrastructure of our international competitors? That is, after all, what led to the post-war boom.
And it didnt work when we tried it during the last decade.
He can't seriously be suggesting that we had anything approaching free market capitalism with a low tax rate, can he? It's been about 100 years since we had anything like that.
"We didn't truly know the dangers of the market, because it was a dark market," says Brooksley Born, the head of an obscure federal regulatory agency -- the Commodity Futures Trading Commission [CFTC] -- who not only warned of the potential for economic meltdown in the late 1990s, but also tried to convince the country's key economic powerbrokers to take actions that could have helped avert the crisis. "They were totally opposed to it," Born says. "That puzzled me. What was it that was in this market that had to be hidden?"
How’s that TARP over the A$$paper thing workin’ out for ya?
See? If you aren't spamming, you're cursing at someone. Trying to be clever calling yourself stale tea? You might want to take a break and do something about that stomach ulcer, Earl.
A$$paper is the vernacular term used on Wall Street for the fraudulent AAA-—>Junk that was manufactured via the sub-prime securitization process.
TARP was the how that fraud was further redistributed.
How’s that workin’ out for ya?
You’re nuts. How’s that workin’ out fir ya?
and apparently the government FORCING bajks to lend money to peopel to buy hosues they can’t afford works according to whiny o? Freddie and Fannie will be the first to declare big government RUIINED them- then stepped i nand bailed them out with TAXPAYER money that hte taxpayers will NEVER see again- he left is spendign htis coutnry into oblivion, but this country doesn’t realize it yey because the bill hasn’t come due just yet- thanks to big government- they are running out of ways to STEAL more money fro mworkign class America to pay for buig government-
Who was Roland Arnall super genius?
I am printing this speech and distributing it to all that I can. I may tack it on telephone poles and say read what your communist President has to say about the USA and how we have thought and how we have run our Nation since it's beginning and weep, and vote him out.
Everyone tack this around the city you live in. Send it to everyone. Do our Conservative commentators know about this unbelievably anti USA, communistic speech??? This cannot be buried, but this speech must have accountability.
I am not exaggerating when I say that I think that Satan himself lives in this man.
