Regrettably, I had to share information with my friend that only made him angry with me. Why do President Obama's supporters get pissed off when you share information with them? Do facts confuse them or something? In this case, I shared a quote from page 135 of Dreams of My Father where Obama writes:
"Eventually a consulting house to multinational corporations agreed to hire me as a research assistant. Like a spy behind enemy lines, I arrived at my mid-Manhattan office and sat at my computer terminal..."
My friend promptly advised me that I am taking this quote out of context and contends that "most black people" feel uncomfortable in corporate America. Good grief... here we go again with the "most black people" spiel. So I had to ask my friend -- Are "most black people"pro-affirmative action as well? If so, why? Since "most black people" are uncomfortable in corporate America?" Well, that didn't go over well and he vowed never to send me email again because of my uber-annoying propensity of turning the most mundane and harmless things into "Anti-Obama propaganda". Unfettered and slightly insulted, I sent him the following graph and shared even more "Anti-Obama propaganda":
Only a mere 8% of Obama's cabinet appointments have private sector experience. Why, because Obama and his minions believe that the government is the answer to all societal woes. He believes that government should house, feed, provide health care and CONTROL society. However, I cannot think of a single problem that has been effectively solved by government -- without creating an even bigger problem in the process.
Bill Burch, chairman of GRIT (the Grass Roots Institute of Texas) wrote that "we need to understand the thinking of the new Marxist Democrats and how they differ from the past. First, as a basis for their thinking, they believe "from each according to his ability and to each according to his need (Karl Marx, 1875)." We also need to understand the difference between a Marxist Democrat and a liberal Democrat." He continues, "a liberal Democrat believes that the government is responsible for helping each individual achieve his goals and freedoms. The Marxist Democrat believes that the individual is responsible to society as a whole and to help government achieve its goals." Do you recall President Elect Obama advising that our "individual salvation depends on our collective salvation"? We are not dealing with your run of the mill liberal democrat anymore in fact at this point I'd welcome a liberal democrat. What we have on our hands now (thanks to the hopeful, the uniformed, and the just plain stupid) is a Marxist who despises America and seeks to "fundamentally transform it".
