She's far from it, Willie. In fact, she's right. Obama absolutely DOES want a ruling class, although not the kind that ruled France before the French Revolution. He wants a ruling class made up of people who think the government is the answer to all of life's problems. That would include but not be limited to the far-left types such as Michael Moore, and rich people willing to fund the same causes such as Soros, etc.<quoted text>Neither pissy or pithy, just the way I feel about the notion that Obama is scary or out to "creat[e] a ruling class". Your examples don't support your fears, in my opinion - but since I think the fear was concluded before you started grabbing stuff to stoke it, that's not surprising.
You've reached WIR territory.
Don't think that's so outlandish, Willie. I'm afraid that EVERY nation has its "ruling class," no matter what it might be called. Soviet Russia had (or has) its ruling class--the governmental agencies, military brass and those few who control the supplies that everyone wants and needs. They had their pets, Olympic athletes, for instance, who got the best apartments, good quality food supplies, adequate medical care, etc.
It'll be the same here. I'm not saying America could be a Communist nation (God forbid), but a ruling class of some kind WOULD develop, and Obama seems to be trying awfully hard to facilitate that.
I could polish up this post more, I suppose, but it's late and even if I spent all night on it, I'd still get roasted over it, so why bother?
