Obama Thinks You Are Stupid

In a speech at a Fire Station in Roanoke VA, Obama said that you can’t achieve success on your own.

If you’ve got a business — you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen.

“There are a lot of wealthy, successful Americans who agree with me because they want to give something back,” the president said. “If you’ve been successful, you didn’t get there on your own. You didn’t get there on your own. I’m always struck by people who think, well, it must be because I was just so smart. There are a lot of smart people out there. It must be because I worked harder than everybody else. Let me tell you something — there are a whole bunch of hardworking people out there.”

Sounds a lot like Elizabeth “Fauxcahontas” Warren, a liberal candidate for the US Senate in Massachusetts, in August 2011 when she said: “There is nobody in this country who got rich on his own. Nobody.

Unbelievable!  Does Obama really think that businesses didn’t become successful without working hard and being smart?  Does Obama really believe that you will accept this example of the Socialist Marxist Collectivist Communist Big Government rhetoric that Obama and people like him believe in?

Apparently so!  Or more to the point, what Obama is saying is that the government made you successful and that you have to share your success with everyone else.  This is why Obama is running around with more of the Class Warfare campaign message.

So your success is because you stole it from someone else.  It is pure redistributionist talk.  Suppose you were in college and someone wanted to redistribute your grade point average GPA.

So those students with good grades should share their GPA with those that didn’t earn it?  Listen to how students justify and compare that taxes are not the same thing.  How is that not different?  You’ve been successful in your studies and made a 4.0 GPA and now you have to share your points with others that didn’t work as hard.  Compare that to taxes; you have a business that is successful and you’ve made over $250,000 in income to grow and continue your business.  Now the government wants to tax your success at a higher rate and redistribute your money to those that aren’t that successful.

When the problem isn’t taxation, it’s spending.  After 3 and ½ years of malfeasance management of the economy, Obama is still blaming President George Bush.  Obama now claims that your success is not yours and that someone else contributed to your success.  You know what that means, you’ve got to give your hard earned money to whomever the government feels deserves it.

What’s my motivation?  Where’s the desire to go create a business and be successful?  If the government (Obama Regime) is not going to allow me to keep my money, then why should I work?

It’s very apparent that Obama wants to rewrite the U.S. Constitution from the Declaration of Independence to Dependence.  A European Socialist, cradle to grave, nanny state government.  We all know how well Europe is doing economically right?

I believe this has been Obama’s plan all along.  His vision of “Hope and Change” is to fundamentally transform America into a welfare nation.  The regime has been issuing more Food Stamps (EBT) than any other administration before.

Because the United States is and has been the most successful nation in the world, Obama believes that success was at the expense of other nations.  If anyone hasn’t noticed yet, but Obama has been redistributing American wealth to other countries, even to our enemies.

You can call the Obama regime the greatest outsourcing administration in American history.  Let’s take a brief look at this regime’s accomplishments:

Brazil got 2 billion dollars to drill oil for us.  Columbia got 2 billion dollars to refine the oil for us.  Fisker got $500 million sent to Finland to build electric cars.  $91 million went to a Texas wind farm that got their windmills from Mitsubishi — a Japanese company.   Jobs that Obama outsourced!  Read more here!

Obama the Outsourcer in Chief!  Then there’s the Solar panel companies that received billions of dollars that have all either gone bankrupt or moved their operations to Mexico and China.  All of it was taxpayer’s dollars that went overseas to employ non-Americans.  The success of Obama’s program has been creating jobs in other countries, but not here in the U.S.  The purpose of the stimulus was to stimulate other economies, just not ours.

Now the Obama regime wants to raise taxes on the “wealthy” people.  Wealthy means anyone making over $250,000.   With Obamacare now deemed a tax by the Supreme Court, taxes on everyone will be going up, not just the wealthy.  In those Obamacare taxes are some of the cruelest forms of punishment.  For example, parents of disabled children using Flexible Spending Accounts (FSA) will be capped at $2,500, it is currently unlimited.  There are thousands of families with special needs children in the United States and many of them use FSAs to pay for special needs education.  Tuition rates at one leading school that teaches special needs children in Washington, D.C. (National Child Research Center) can easily exceed $14,000 per year. Under tax rules, FSA dollars can be used to pay for this type of special needs education.

Full List Of Obamacare Taxes Here!

Obama thinks you are stupid.  That you’ll believe this nonsense that without government, you will not be able to care for yourself, your healthcare and your future.  The government wants to control how you spend your money, so much so that they will tax it out of you by hook and by crook.  How much is enough?

I Was Inspired

 

 

I am inspired!  Last night, I had an encounter with great wisdom.  I had recently written an opinion article for my local newspaper regarding the Rush Limbaugh faux pas.  In it I explained that this wasn’t about what Limbaugh said, but about the moral decline being promoted by the Socialist Democrats.

Last night I received a phone call from an 85 year old elderly Japanese woman, she wanted to complement me on my opinion editorial.  Her name was Arlene, and she wanted to tell me how much she enjoyed reading my article that I wrote to the Hilo Tribune-Herald.  I’ve written opinion articles to the Hilo newspaper many times before, and on occasion people have complemented me on my ramblings.  However, this was the first time I had an hour plus long conversation with someone so passionate about losing a voice on the airwaves.

Arlene was disappointed by the decision by our local radio station KPUA to pull the Rush Limbaugh show from their programming schedule.  Having the dubious recognition of being the only radio station in the nation to do so, KPUA’s President Chris Leonard was obviously pleased with himself.  By punishing the listeners of his radio station, he must have felt he was making a bold statement for righteousness, or something.

“Apparently, we were the first in the country to cancel and it has generated a fair amount of national attention, which was certainly not our intent, and we have received a ton of feedback on both sides of the issue over the past several hours,” he noted. “We’ve heard a lot from Rush listeners who are disappointed in our decision and we’ve also heard from a lot of people who are very happy about the decision.”

 

Arlene was angry that KPUA canceled the Rush Limbaugh show, and she told me that she called the station to express her anger.  She told me she did not know what she was going to do without her daily listening of “Excellence In Broadcasting!”  She went on to explain that she agreed with Rush; that Sandra Fluke is a “slut”!  Anyone that would publicly shame themselves before “Pelosi’s Gang” is deserving of such rebuke.  I agreed that the larger point was not lost in the fluff of leftist manufactured outrage.

 

When Conservative women are disparaged by the left, not a word is heard by the elitist media.  Why does the media turn a blind eye at the conduct by so called late night comedians, leftist cable news anchors and leftist radio talk show morons that regularly disparage women?  In particular conservative women?

Media Mashup

Letterman’s top ten countdown – number 2, he makes a remark about Sarah Palin.

 

This is, apparently, acceptable behavior to the National Organization of Women (NOW).  Notice that they didn’t say a word about any vulgar remarks about conservative women.  That’s because in their feeble little hateful minds, this is acceptable in today’s society.  Allow some women to be discriminated against and then only defend those that fit their political views.  This is also because the National Organization of Women is at war with itself.  How else can you explain the content of their website.  They are promoting an appearance that women are all discriminated against.  This is patently not true!  Discrimination is not the exclusive domain of women.  People like me were not raised that way.  People like Arlene are not like that either.

Gloria Steinem, Jane Fonda and others have expressed outrage over Rush Limbaugh’s comments and demand the FCC ban the show.  Considering the brain trust of these two, I would have thought their greatest collective concern would be either spit or swallow.  The moral outrage over a talk show host is lost in hypocritical hyperbole of “do as I say, and not as I do”!  Arlene and I spoke of this double standard and how it has poisoned the discourse in today’s society.  After all, it was Gloria Steinem that once said about housewives:

“[Housewives] are dependent creatures who are still children…parasites.” ~ Gloria Steinem, “What It Would Be Like If Women Win,” Time, August 31, 1970.

I was having an enjoyable conservation over the phone with a wonderful grandmother, a widower and a very intelligent woman.  A bold and passionate woman that was not afraid to speak her mind.  A woman with a voice, and not afraid to use it either!  A woman with health problems, for her age, but she was not afraid to pick up the phone and call me; to thank me for my opinion.  I was inspired and humbled!

How could anyone not want to hear a complement?  This was different.  She was praising a man she admired.  She was angry that a source of information was gone.  She was hurt by losing a friend on the radio for three hours a day.  She was emotionally distraught over a person that when they spoke, made her think, was now off the airwaves!  Much like the passing of Andrew Breitbart, I felt the same way.  She was grateful to know there were others like me out there.  Who appreciated free-thought and lived by conservative values.  I was inspired!

Arlene told me about her upbringing.  Growing up in the plantations north of Hilo town in Pēpē’ekeo.  How back in that time people didn’t conduct themselves like Sandra Fluke, out of fear of shaming their family and shaming themselves.  People had more pride in keeping with the morals they were taught.  Indeed, 85 years ago means she was born in 1927, and she lived through World War II, the Japanese interment and she has seen the changes in the world with a lifetime of experience.  Growing up on the slopes of Mauna Kea during the plantation days must have been an experience.  Back then, Hilo was just a small town and Pēpē’ekeo was just a small sugar plantation.  Arlene told me how she was raised with family values which she passed onto her children and grandchildren.  I was inspired!

Values that included pride and respect!  Values that included independence and interdependence.  Values that shared love and family.  Values that had mutual partisanship and commanding directness.  Values of respecting ones person, a temple, if I could use that phrase.  Something that seems in great deficit in today’s society.  The rational that contraception is cheaper than the full birth of a new life brought into the world is somehow a better trade off, is just frightening.  That was partially the subject of my article, but she saw it from a higher elevation and seen the larger picture.  She called me at home to tell me that.  I was inspired!

Bart Simpson explains Sandra Fluke

We agreed that if there was a War on Women; that I would surrender.  I said “willingly”.  All joking aside, my conversation with her was thrilling!  She went on to explain how she called the radio station’s phone number (KPUA), and voiced her displeasure with the stations decision to cancel the Rush Limbaugh Show!  She also told me she apologized to the station operator for her choice in language.  She did not elaborate on what she said explicitly, and neither did I inquire, but I can only imagine!

I could not imagine we are the only two people on the Big Island of Hawai’i with the same values.  I know we are not alone.  She told me because of her age and frail condition, she is no longer able to either drive, or get around without some assistance.  We talked about conservative groups here on the Big Island; The Conservative Forum and the Hilo Tea Party.  Both are a rich diverse group of people of both men and women that are like minded.  She was surprise and happy to hear that there were others out there.  Free-thinkers that often get together to discuss issues that affect our lives.

We talked about the entitlement mentality, the desire by people to depend on handouts from the government.  They call those handouts, free!  A right!    We talked about a variety of topics from family to politics.  We talked about how we make decisions and what guides our decision processes.  We talked about the Hawai’i caucus taking place today.  We talked about our candidates of choice.  We talked about the current administration, and local politics.  I was impressed by Arlene’s knowledge of current events.  If I didn’t know better, I’d say she was getting her news feeds via twitter or facebook.  I was inspired!

Free Speech Under Attack

KPUA, the local AM radio station in Hilo Hawai’i has pulled the Rush Limbaugh show from their programming schedule.  In an act of intolerance and a attack on Free Speech.

KPUA cancels Rush Limbaugh radio show in Hilo

By 67AM KPUA News
Hilo, Hawaii March 5, 2012: New West Broadcasting announced today that it is discontinuing the Rush Limbaugh program on KPUA AM 670 in Hilo, Hawaii effective immediately.Chris Leonard, President and General Manager of New West released the following statement this morning:“We have always encouraged spirited discussion about national and local issues on KPUA and from time to time those discussions may be deemed by some to be objectionable. We are strong believers in the first amendment and have recognized Mr. Limbaugh’s right to express opinions that often times differ from our own, but
it has never been our goal to allow our station to be used for personal attacks and intolerance. The most recent incident has crossed a line of decency and a standard that we expect of programming on KPUA whether it is locally produced or a syndicated program like the Rush Limbaugh show.

While much of the national debate regarding this issue is now being framed in political terms, the decision for us is one of decency and responsibility. Regardless of one’s political views on the issue being discussed, we feel the delivery was degrading and the continued comments over several days to be egregious. As a result, we are discontinuing the Rush Limbaugh program on KPUA effective immediately.”

For questions or comments, email us at news@kpua.net

KPUA is a CBS affiliate, so it is apart of the network of intolerant leftest news stations.  This knee jerk reaction to pull the Rush Limbaugh is an attack on Free Speech.  Even in the statement on KPUA’s website does not justify “spirited discussion”, it does show intolerance to free speech.

Why has KPUA chosen to punish their listeners by pulling the Rush Limbaugh show from their programming schedule?  Because Rush commented on a political activist that is apart of the Culture of Death.  Rush commented on the testimony of Sandra Fluke that was staged as a phony demonstration conducted by the Socialist Democrats and Nancy Pelosi (a.k.a. Nazi Piglosi).  In an effort to change the attacks on Religious Consciences and the First Amendment by Obama and his Marxist Regime, the Democrats have tried to make contraception out to be a woman’s health issue.  The two are not related in any sense.  That’s the crime that Rush and his listeners are being punished for.

Rush asked a question about Sandra Fluke’s testimony about women not having access to contraception.  He asked what does that make her?  A Slut!  Sandra Fluke went on to claim using examples of women she claims to know, having sex, and having medical issues because of the lack of contraception availability.  This testimony was given in full public disclosure to a panel of Socialist Democrats that supports a culture of immorality and death.  Sandra Fluke was advancing Obama’s policy to use contraception as a whole new entitlement program.

When in reality, the Socialist Democrats were attempting to change the subject on Obama’s attacks on religion and the First Amendment.  Rush did apologized over the weekend.  Here is what Rush said:

A Statement from Rush

March 03, 2012

For over 20 years, I have illustrated the absurd with absurdity, three hours a day, five days a week.  In this instance, I chose the wrong words in my analogy of the situation. I did not mean a personal attack on Ms. Fluke.

I think it is absolutely absurd that during these very serious political times, we are discussing personal sexual recreational activities before members of Congress. I personally do not agree that American citizens should pay for these social activities. What happened to personal responsibility and accountability? Where do we draw the line? If this is accepted as the norm, what will follow? Will we be debating if taxpayers should pay for new sneakers for all students that are interested in running to keep fit?In my monologue, I posited that it is not our business whatsoever to know what is going on in anyone’s bedroom nor do I think it is a topic that should reach a Presidential level.

My choice of words was not the best, and in the attempt to be humorous, I created a national stir. I sincerely apologize to Ms. Fluke for the insulting word choices.

As a result, KPUA decided to punish its listeners and pull the Rush Limbaugh show.  But what Rush said wasn’t anything Rush hasn’t said before.  Other radio talk show hosts have said far worse things.  Leftist talk show hosts like Ed Schultz, Bill Press and Mike Malloy have said far worse things.  But this all a distraction away from the larger issue.

What the larger issue is about is the government forcing religious institutions to go against their conscience.  What this is about is the government forcing religious institutions to supply contraception to their employees.  It is about the government forcing you to purchase a product which is against your religious beliefs.  This is NOT about Sandra Fluke.  This not about Rush Limbaugh either.  This is about free speech.  This is about freedom of choice.  This about religious freedoms.  This about the Obama Regime attacking the United States Constitution.

As a result, I have decided not to listen to KPUA or support their advertisers until KPUA returns Rush Limbaugh to their programming schedule.  We don’t have a lot of radio stations here in Hilo.  We don’t have any talk radio stations at all, except for KPUA’s sports talk shows.  For KPUA’s management to cancel the Rush Limbaugh show over his comments is just another attack on free speech.  It is wrong!  I have sent KPUA an email expressing my disappointment with their decision and I hope they change their misguided decision.
