Some things worth reflecting on …
Her famous speech, I title “Michelle NObama will steal your pie” — Michelle NObama apparently takes a dim view of the notion that a rising tide lifts all ships:
Most Americans, she said, don’t want much.
“They don’t want the whole pie,” she told the women. “There are some who do, but most Americans feel blessed just being able to thrive a little bit. But that is becoming even more out of reach.”…
“If we don’t wake up as a nation with a new kind of leadership…for how we want this country to work, then we won’t get universal health care,” she said.
“The truth is, in order to get things like universal health care and a revamped education system, then someone is going to have to give up a piece of their pie so that someone else can have more.”
Give up a piece of their pie, or is Michelle NObama going to take it away? Either way, it’s pretty clear that our first lady’s appreciation of economics is about as deep as her pride in America. And of course, it helps if you have a few slumlord friends to help you get your piece of the pie. As long as everyone has a slumlord friend for such purposes, we all can have plenty of pie!
And then Sen NObama:
Sen. Barack Obama shed new light on his economic plans for the country, saying he would rely on a heavy dose of government spending to spur growth, use the tax code to narrow the widening gap between winners and losers in the U.S. economy, and possibly back a reduction in corporate tax rates.
…the U.S. becoming what he called a “winner-take-all” economy, where the gains from economic growth skew heavily toward the wealthy.
Sen. Obama cited new economic forces to explain what appears like a return to an older-style big-government Democratic platform skeptical of market forces. “Globalization and technology and automation all weaken the position of workers,” he said, and “a strong government hand is needed to assure that wealth is distributed more equitably”. He spoke aboard his campaign bus, where a big-screen TV was tuned to the final holes of the U.S. Open golf tournament. (Source: The Wall Street Journal)
So why is anybody amazed when people say NObama is destroying the USA middle class on purpose? Read that boring History.
As NObama and his useful idiots watch their anointed one’s approval dig for the basement and beyond, I can say I have never been prouder of my countrymen.
