    Government Sets Its Sights on Private Retirement Accounts: “Giant Effort to Redistribute the Wealth of America’s Older Citizens” Mac Slavo November 20th, 2012 A new effort by the Obama administration, Congress, the Treasury Department and labor unions aims to fundamentally alter how Americans plan and save for retirement. Warnings have been popping up over the last several years about the possibility of re-appropriating the $3.5 Trillion sitting in private retirement and spreading those funds around to Americans who are deemed less fortunate. This couldn’t possibly happen in America, right? At one time, most Americans also believed heath care mandates that...

    On the same day that Senate Budget Committee Republicans revealed that spending on federal welfare programs constituted the single largest expenditure in the 2011 budget, the Department of Agriculture failed to meet a key deadline to further explain its food stamp partnership with the Mexican government....(SNAP), or food stamps, which recently reached an all-time high enrollment of nearly 47 million participants. Non-citizen participation in SNAP has quadrupled since 2001 and doubled since 2008.

    "Every now and then President Obama sort of drops his veil," GOP vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan said last month. In some respects the veil dropped years ago. It’s just that the news is only now reaching the American public. One example is the audio recording released Tuesday in which the Illinois state senator told a Loyola University audience on Oct. 19, 1998: “I actually believe in redistribution.”

    George Bernard Shaw, a Fabian Society socialist, knew the flaw of his own people: “A socialist is somebody who doesn’t have anything, and is ready to divide it up equally among everybody.” Shaw said, before his death in 1950. Some folks, including this blogger, have accused President Barack Obama, of, shall we say, harboring socialist tendencies...

    President Obama, who famously called for tax increases on the wealthy to "spread the wealth around," denied today that his tax increases on the rich are an attempt to "redistribute wealth." "So these investments -- in things like education and research and health care -- they haven't been made as some grand scheme to redistribute wealth from one group to another," the president said today at Florida Atlantic University. "This is not some socialist dream," Obama added as hecalled for tax increases on millionaires today to pay for those investments.

    The Cube ^ | 8/8/2011 | Red Square
    WASHINGTON -- President Barack Obama came out swinging Monday in his first public remarks since S&P downgrade of U.S. creditworthiness, congratulating Americans on achieving a moral victory by redistributing the unfairly gained superior AAA rating to the less fortunate and more deserving countries, some of whom don't even have an alphabet. Calling the loss of an 'A' a "shared sacrifice" and "exercise in global economic justice," Obama went on to explain that our loss is someone else's gain and that we must have less so they have more is an idea worth fighting for. "By dropping that single 'A' from...

    Many students believe that it is moral to confiscate money from hard-working Americans and entrepreneurs and give it to those who didn't earn it, yet don't support the same philosophy when it is applied to their GPA scores. Here are some of the responses we got when asking students to sign a petition call for GPA redistribution: http://youtu.be/lOyaJ2UI7Ss

    CDS and NewsReal ^ | 5/24/2010 | Michael van der Galien
    It’s popular these days for conservatives to criticize the defender of the poor and the oppressed, Robin Hood. Hood, they say, is nothing more than a socialist pretending to be a hero. He is, if you will, Karl Marx with a bow and couple of arrows. He steels from the wealthy and gives to the poor. It’s socialism in action, or so many contemporary conservative commentators argue. Although I understand it that conservatives automatically oppose all those who dare “redistribute wealth” (or appear to), they are sorely mistaken to do so with Hood. Dismissing him as a Marxist is ludicrous...

    Pajamas Media ^ | April 2 | Leon de Winter
    Barack Obama’s presidency marks a revolutionary change in America’s relations with the Middle East. This is not an accident, and it is not the consequence of reckless Israeli behavior. In his two autobiographical books, Obama appears as a postmodern, left-of-center intellectual. The books were taken in the media at face value, and although they contain some insights into his progressive agenda, the depth of Obama’s connections to neo-Marxist ideologues was only touched upon in passing. The media left it at that, and when he was campaigning, the mainstream media refused to research these ideological alliances. As a community organizer, Barack...

    Socialist International President George Papandreou has a lot in common with President Barack Obama. Both the world leaders have called for nations to come together to solve the global recession and both claim it is necessary to focus on a green economy. Papandreou, who is likely to become Greece’s next Prime Minister, was encouraged by Obama’s “very new signal” about global goals for economic recovery. “The United States under Barack Obama is giving out a very new signal which is, ‘We need to collaborate.’ And I think that is very important for our planet today. We need to collaborate,” Papandreou...

    Tuesday, Nov. 4, 2008, is a date that will live in fame (the opposite of infamy) forever. If the election of our first African-American president didn’t stir you, if it didn’t leave you teary-eyed and proud of your country, there’s something wrong with you. But will the election also mark a turning point in the actual substance of policy? Can Barack Obama really usher in a new era of progressive policies? Yes, he can. Right now, many commentators are urging Mr. Obama to think small. Some make the case on political grounds: America, they say, is still a conservative country,...

  • Obama 1995 audio: whites, taxes, collective salvation, sacrifices by whites for blacks

    And I really want to emphasize the word responsibility. I think that whether you are a white executive living out in suburbs who doesn’t want to pay taxes to inner city children for them to go to school. Certain portions of the African American community are doing as bad if not worse and recognizing that my fate remains tied up with their fates that my individual salvation is not going to come about without a collective salvation for the country. Unfortunately, I think that recognition requires we make sacrifices and this country is not always been willing to make the...

  • Obama wants not redistribution but reconcentration

    10/26/2008 7:33:55 PM PDT · by Paaran · 3 replies · 295+ views
    Before the first, I wish to point out the Obama matter is not distribution but concentation matter. Saying again, his policy is not redistribution of wealth but reconcentration of power. If Obama wish to concentrate his policy on redistribution of wealth, he first concentrates his power before doing it. Your Americans during history concentrate your policy into Freedom Democracy. The famous word of Lincoln's "of the people, by the people, for the people" means redistributed power, government power. In the case, every people has his power to push our government by his vote. However, in the case of Obama's redistribution...
