How did I get there? It's pretty simple, really.

"In order to make it work well for the government you need a big poor base" is how I got there.

I'm not the one talking paranoid, lisw. You're the one talking about Obama "creating new elites", wanting to keep "a big poor base" so they'll keep voting Democratic.

<quoted text>Well by gosh I did say that, didn't I. I really don't think Obama has the power to create a true ruling class, but he is definitely working on it. He is shrinking the middle class for sure unless you believe that more people on medicaid makes them middle class. I'm going to be quoting a couple things about Obamacare in the next few weeks but here is the first one I found. I consider myself middle class with the exception that we've reached a point in our lives that we have very little debt. But we are also on a fixed income now. I recently found out that for the tax year of 2013 medical expenses must be 10% of income as opposed to 7.5%. That pushes us one step closer to being poor. I'll keep you updated on what else Obama has done to screw over me and other middle class people. We know he's going after the wealthy, I just never thought that would include me.
Obama considers "wealthy" anyone who isn't dependent on government handouts.

<quoted text>The problem I think is the way you look at "ruling class" If you compare it to France and England in the 17 and 1800's of course the idea of a ruling class seems ridiculous. Obama doesn't want lords and ladies and viscounts and kings. But the 21st century version is a class of special people. People who for whatever reason are not subject to what is happening to the country. Washington has little clue how things are in the rest of the country. Housing and salaries remain high and those in government and the special interests of Obama are not subject to his new rules. Roberta (or maybe it was Lyndi) is right. In order to make it work well for the government you need a big poor base. There will always be people who do fine in spite of Obama but unfortunately thats a smaller and smaller group.
Thanks, Lis. I tried to explain to Willie that the European aristocrat-style "ruling class" isn't what Obama is after, but I don't think I got the message across. That's not Willie's fault, because (at least for now) it's a fairly nebulous idea and specific description isn't possible. But I think you and I agree that that s.o.b. in the White House IS after some kind of group, a chosen few in whose hands most of the political, financial and economic power will be concentrated, and that he wants ordinary Americans, who have always been the TRUE source of real power in this nation, to be permanently weakened.

I wonder if it's possible somehow to call a Terminator from the future and have it neutralize either or both of Obama's parents?

Being in Jerimiah Wrights congregation and using him for his spiritual mentor for 20 years if not scary was extremely disturbing. Wright became Obama's father figure because as is too often the case with that segment of our population, Obama's father was MIA perhaps? Wright is another one who thinks the African American community has been gypped and the current white generation owes them. I think it's the foundation for the level playing field platform Obama keeps pushing. The African American community hasn't evened out the playing field on their own so factor in affirmative action and redistribution and entitlements up the ying yang and force a false perception of evening things out. Obama is sick of waiting for things to even out, so his plan is to force it.
==

My feeling on that subject is more emphasis needs to be placed on personal responsibility but that unfortunately doesn't sell at the polls as we discoved once again in November. The stats for African American girls/women are around 70% for unwed mothers and missing fathers. The numbers of incarcerated black men are lopsided. The numbers of high school drop-outs are lopsided. And that is a huge problem yet I don't see Obama addressing it. He just wants to bandaid it.

Bill Cosby addressed this forbidden topic when he said,
"People marched and were hit in the face with rocks to get an education, and now we've got these knuckleheads walking around...the lower economic people are not holding up their end of the deal. With names like Shaniqua, Taliqua and Mohammed and all that crap, and all of them are in jail....They are standing on the corner and they can't speak English."

Now maybe it's not politically correct to say such things but many truths in todays's world go unchecked because of political correctness and Cosby may have hit on what alot of people think.
Shoving unpleasant truths under the rug and pretending you don't have a problem is very scary to me. Eventually we're going to trip over it and do a face plant.
Oh wait, we already have!
TERRIFIC post, Lyndi :)

Maybe it's laughable, maybe not. Let's watch al Qaeda play out, shall we? That "huge toilet" you speak of may be be coming back to play at a theatre near you.

Maybe you haven't heard but al Qaeda and it's affiliates have spread throughout the Middle East and northern Africa, transforming them into an increasingly dangerous network and it's stronger at an operational level than many experts are comfortable with. al Qaeda is in a constant state of transformation and reorganizational movement & has spread to Yemen, North Africa, Syria, Somalia, it's still very much alive in Pakistan and Afghanistan and if Israel ever falls, I predict everything will change in unimagineable ways.
With the outbreak of the Arab Spring, local affiliated al Qaeda groups have infiltrated multiple weakened locations. You may want to tune in once in a while and catch up on the news. Europe is not in good shape which adds more uncertainty to the region.

What you believe to be true today may be entirely different down the road. GWB could be considered the man with the forsight and endurance and the cojones to take the battle over there and Obama may be the president best remembered for permitting Islamic extremism to run wild like a plague.

I wouldn't laugh just yet if I were you.

Whoever he/she is sounds like a dullard. But he did make me look at your profile and I see you read CS Lewis. I haven't but wondered if you've read any of Francine Rivers novels about early Christianity. I found them to be as fun as a romance novel but inspiring.

No it isn't crazy talk and calling it crazy talk is your attempt to diminish and wave away what many of us know to be a truth. Obama has a propensity to reward bad behavior and punish good behavior.

Examples? Gun control laws which will primarily effect responsible gun owners. Easy citizenship for illegal immigrants who broke the law getting in here. An entitlement extrvaganza for people not pulling their weight. Taxing outrageously those "rich white guys" because they actually worked to get the things they have so he can give out freebies with OUR money to a huge portion of his voter base.

If we parented the way this guy governs, we'd reward our kids for breaking into someone else's home and punish the kids who make something of themselves. It's a bad idea in the home and it's a bad idea for the nation.

What he should be doing with that star quality thing some of you think he has, is take to the airwaves and tell young African American women to stop having babies at 15 with some kid who will be long gone by the time the child is two. Tell young African Americans not about "revenge" voting but about the value of education. Tell them if thay want >stuff< there is a better way to get it than handouts. And instead of making news by saying if he had a son, he would have looked like Treyvon Martin, or hustling Michelle off to the funeral of a black girl or playing golf with Tiger Woods or hanging with Jay Z and Beyonce.......{gee, do you notice a pattern there?} maybe he ought to be little less obvious that big government is the answer to everything.

We're not stupid. His way is a road to power and democrats have been doing this for decades. I submit if it worked, we wouldn't be in the financial boat we're in now.

Take a look at the 10 most failed cities in the country.
Wanna take a guess as to which party has been holding the reins?

I explained to you that using Reverend Wright for 20 years as a mentor with his "God Damn America" speeches if not SCARY was disturbing and his lessons are deeply ingrained in Obama. He taught him to turn the tables on the white folk, level the playing field through whatever means necessary, get the money, build an underclass and keep the power.
And if you follow Obama's behavior he's throwing the little people scraps while he's running around living the high life like a kid in a candy store. Is that an elitist or should we just chalk it up to someone who falls into the category of nouveau-riche because having money and power is new to him and he's still in the giddy stage?
You can take the boy out of Chicago but you can't take Chicago out of the boy.
God, this is going to be a long 4 years.
aND cHRISTAINS JUST like Islam , is on Obama watch list; both and you Christians,are not exempted. It fault of you right Wing Americans who had ruined US and the World with u war machines!

And you aren't one to talk anyway. You have referred to the Catholic Church as an "international pedophlile crime syndicate" which is rude and unbecoming no matter what your religious beliefs are and that didn't stop you.

Denigrate- criticize unfairly, belittle, disparage, blacken, mock slander, defame, vilify, asperse, malign


You may not DENIGRATE those who like country music but you sure DENIGRATE daily those who's religious and political beliefs differ from yours. It's curious to me why I don't see you post on threads which declare and support your beliefs instead of just parking your tepee on threads where your primary MO is to put down the beliefs of others.

....maybe it's because your positions and beliefs are so hard to defend and you're a low information American with nothing in your arsenal but a "feel good" plan.
