RE: Obama's New Slogan
Mmhmmm...I can possibly understand why one might take the picture as "racist" or somewhat distasteful. But I don't think Quietdudetoo is a racist. I am not a racist myself - but I do see the humour in it , to keep from crying. If one could see beyond the "(FROM THE) HOOD" thingy then the rest of the "slogan" is essentially TRUE!
As witnessed here, Obama - without a script or teleprompter to rely on - finally got caught with his pants down, so to speak, when Joe the Plumber (Joseph Wurzelbacher) asked him a few questions which revealed the "man's " true Socialists agenda:
JOE WURZELBACHER: â€œIâ€™m a plumber. You know, I work, you know, 10, 12 hours a day. If I buy another truck and add something else to it, and you know, build the companyâ€¦â€
WURZELBACHER: â€œâ€¦ you know, Iâ€™m getting taxed more and more.â€
OBAMA: â€œNobody likes high taxes.â€
WURZELBACHER: â€œNo, not at all.â€
OBAMA: â€œRight? Of course not. So â€” but whatâ€™s happened is, is that we end up â€” weâ€™ve cut taxes a lot for folks like me who make a lot more than $250,000. We havenâ€™t given a break to folks who make less. Itâ€™s not that I want to punish your success, I just want to make sure that everybody who is behind you, that theyâ€™ve got a chance at success, too. And everybody is so pinched that business is bad for everybody. And I think when you spread the wealth around, itâ€™s good for everybody.â€
Don't take my word for it, here's the video:
Frederic Bastiat once said, â€œThese socialists writers look upon people in the same manner that the gardener views his trees. Just as the gardener capriciously shapes the trees into pyramids, parasols, cubes, vases, fans, and other forms, just so does the socialist writer whimsically shape human beings into groups, series, centers, sub-centers, honeycombs, and other variations. And just as the gardener needs axes, pruning hooks, saws, and shears to shape his trees, just so does the socialist writer need the force that he can find only in law to shape human beings. For this purpose, he devises tariff laws, tax laws, relief laws, and school laws.â€
â€œThe State is the great fiction by which everyone seeks to live at the expense of everyone else.â€
For a little perspective, here's a simple but poignant anology to why Obama's plan to spread the wealth is wrong:
Some folks do not know what Socialism is. Does Lenin, Stallin, Marx, Hitler, Mao, Chavez, Ayers and the Castro brothers ring a bell?
I'll Spread the Wealth Around
The picture is what it is.
