Now, consider this. A person who works for minimum wage at McDonalds, are they equally responsible for the road outside? Are they paying anywhere near the amount of taxes that a local business owner is? Not even close. The reason I bring this up, is because Obama chose to insult those that are paying the lion's share of taxes that fund roads, that pay teachers, that pay cops and firemen, that fund bridges. It was a backhanded remark at best. Telling business owners, who are paying the lion's share of taxes in this country, that they really didn't do anything on their own. Then, in another condescending manner, he says crap like, "they think it is because they are so smart. There's a lot of smart people out there. Or that it was because they worked so hard. Let me tell ya, there's a lot of hard working people out there."
That comment diminishes both intelligence and hard work. His comment was insulting, and if you don't understand why, then that's your own lack of understanding. He wouldn't of said to the minimum wage worker, "ya know, you don't pay much taxes, but you still get to reap the benefits because of the people that do, I just want you to know, and a lot of folks would agree, that you didn't succeed on your own, and you wouldn't be able to drive on this street if it weren't for people who pay more taxes than you."
He wouldn't of insulted the minimum wage worker. But why does he think it's ok to insult business owners? Because they have money!!!! He has an inner resentment towards people who have worked for their money, like all leftists do. Why else would he diminish a business owner's "smarts" and "hard work". Those two things are the PRIMARY reason for their success, and he chose those to things to diminish and minimize their importance by equating them with "a lot of folks".
It would be like me saying to you, if you had earned a PhD in college, "ya know, many PhD's would agree, that you didn't earn that on your own. It surprises me when I hear people say 'it must of been because I was so smart'. Let me tell you something, there are a lot of smart people out there. Or when they say 'It must of been because I worked so hard'. There are a lot of hard working people out there. If you have a PhD, you didn't do that. Someone else made that happen." Basically what he said was "no big deal, you own a business. Its not because you are smart, because a lot of people are smart. And it's not because you worked hard, because a lot of people work hard. It's because someone else made that happen"
If that's not insulting, I don't know what is. The reason he can insult business owners and get away with it, is because he knows that we aren't going to stop working. He know's we aren't going to stop paying taxes. He rides the backs of PRODUCERS, while he conjures up class envy amoung the LOOTERS. He insults the producers, while he demands society show compassion for the looters. He condescends to the producers, while he enables the looters. Then he runs commercials on television that attacks another successful American businessman simply for being RICH. He's playing to the worst attributes of American society. Envy and jealousy. He's exploiting the poor for votes, and he's rubbing everyone's nose in it along the way.
He's a man child. A manipulator of the mob. He seeks favor through stirring up the worst feelings in a person, their anger and their jealousy. He pits minimum wage worker against owner, labor employee against management, poor against rich, welfare recipient against home owner, unemployed against wall street, bureaucrat against business owner, government against the people. It is the modus operandi of the community organizer, and it's all he's known his entire adult life. Organize, Strike, March, Revolt, Resist, Organize, Strike, March, Revolt, Resist. It's who he is by nature, and it's the philosophy which drives his politics. He's a Marxist at heart. Read his books. Listen to him carefully when he's describing the people HE SOUGHT OUT in college. The Marxists. Study his parents. Both were Marxists. Learn about the man he called "Uncle Frank" growing up. It was Frank Marshall Davis, another Marxist. But you would have me believe he's the furthest thing from a Marxist. .....tisk tisk.....do your homework, and stop assuming that just because he's the President, he's a free market capitalist eager to create a strong business atmosphere in America, because he's not.
