President Obama's efforts to play the class warfare card and to blame George Bush for everything from the clouds in the sky to the malaise of the first two years of his administration when Democrats controlled both houses of Congress, may be the only card that he has. And if people are dumb enough to believe him, they may usher in another four years of this bumbling politician.
The New York Times, hardly a bastion of conservative thought, is predicting another recession with unemployment approaching or even exceeding 10 percent. (READ HERE)
At the same time, the jobless liberals are trying to convince America of something in their occupation on Wall St. Nobody really knows what they want. Some signs I've seen plea for an end to whaling. Others express a need for free money (more free money than they're getting from the government, a code word for tax payers)
Some feel that corporations should be looted in an effort to promote more job growth. Don't ask me to explain their position. I simply report it. I don't think that any of them have read Atlas Shrugged. I'm sure that most have read Alinsky's Rules for Radicals. The whole community organizing crowd seems to be very comfortable sitting around, collecting welfare and complaining about the lack of jobs. If they push Obama into the White House again (The Class Warfare Struggle), I'm sure that will get them the jobs that they pine for. God knows, the government is really the only solution to more employment. Corporations are too unreliable to trust with job creation...
The Wall Street protest radicals involved with the struggle against the middle class job creators and corporations who employ people are dragging out the wrong playbook, though. Pointing to Mao's efforts to crush the upper and middle class led to the Cultural Revolution and 50 million dead Chinese. Afterward (today), China is the world's bastion of capitalistic production. Walk through WalMart and count the products made in China vs the USA.
Capitalism works. Nothing else delivers. I know that those words sound sour to Obama Democrats, but if America goes in the direction that Barack Obama leads, all I can advise is that you should hold onto your wallet.
