Yep, Obama and his regime have created a vast and rapidly expanding constituency of voters dependent on big government; a vast privileged class of public employees who work for big government; and a government dedicated to destroying capitalism and installing themselves as socialist rulers by overwhelming the system. A perfect Marxist scheme.
It's outright assault on American freedoms, liberties, values, sensibilities, and the American way. Along with the US Constitution.

Yep. They granted themselves the power to take over companies and institutions and got their "too big to fail" mandate in there, as well. I couldn't help but notice that none of that is in this article. What a surprise! The Constitution used as a doormat, yet again.

How do you know, ever experienced it ? Ever lived in a country that had social health care or students didn't have to pay to get an education ? And I just bet you don't mind social security, or Medicare eh ?
Have you?

My niece is married to a French Canadian and lives in Three Rivers, Quebec. She's a nurses aid, who earns $13 and change an hour after working there for sixteen years. She pays over 50% of her paycheck to the government and supplemental insurance, because the government coverage is so good that they all buy extra insurance if they can afford to. Everything from groceries to household items to clothing is far more expensive there than it is here. Electronics are off the charts and the sales tax is 14%. So that half a paycheck doesn't go too far.

Her children can get free (if you don't count all the taxes they pay) college, but not at acredited universities. To get a good degree, you pay, pay, pay.

On the down side, she ruptured a tendon in her foot while on the job. They were kind enough (her union) to let her work in an office, answering phones, directing calls and doing some data entry. We call that "receptionist" here in Les Etas Unis. I don't know what they call the position up there, but she loved the position and wanted to stay there permanently. Though the position was available, they wouldn't let her have it permanently, because she doesn't have a 'certificate'.

That's right. Since everyone is expected to go to those 'free' schools, you need a college degree to work as a receptionist. That's ridiculous, eh?

Obama: Lobbyists, I Canít Quit You!

Even Eric Holder exposed as a former Lobbyist from Bankrupt telecom

by Paul Kiel, ProPublica
January 29, 2009

In November 2007, Barack Obama proclaimed that lobbyists "won't find a job in my White House." That eventually became a pledge [1] that they wouldn't "dominate" his administration. And during his transition, Obama put that kinder, gentler pledge into action [2], allowing lobbyists onboard as long as they worked on issues unrelated to their earlier jobs.

When he got to the White House, he issued an executive order [3] banning lobbyists from working on issues they'd worked on in the past two years. So how's that going? As the National Journal reported [1], Obama has "nominated two recent lobbyists to high-level administration posts, and 14 of the 112 White House staffers that Obama had named had been registered as lobbyists at some point since 2005." Three more former lobbyists are being considered for top administration jobs.

The most noted of those lobbyists is William Lynn, formerly the VP of government operations at Raytheon, nominated [4] to be deputy Defense secretary. And then there's Mark Patterson, nominated to be Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner's chief of staff, who lobbied for Goldman Sachs until last year [5]. Another on the list is William Corr, who ran and lobbied for the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids, nominated to be deputy Health and Human Services secretary.

Lynn has already received a waiver [6] from the Obama administration, and Corr seems likely to receive one with little controversy [7](especially since few seem to object to an anti-smoking advocate getting a top health job).

As Politico reports [8], there are actually a number more Obama administration nominees and appointees who have lobbied, though not within the past two years. Obama's nominee to be attorney general, Eric Holder, for instance, was registered to lobby until 2004 and did work [9] for a (now-bankrupt) telecom company.

Widow of Houston Officer Killed by Illegal Immigrant 'Shocked' at Obama's "Sanctuary City" ICE Appointment

June 25, 2010
FOXNews.com

The widow of a Houston police officer killed by an illegal immigrant was "shocked" to learn that the city's former police chief has landed a top immigration job with the Obama administration, her lawyer told FoxNews.com on Friday.

That's because Joslyn Johnson, whose husband, Rodney Johnson, was killed in 2006, is suing former Houston Police Chief Harold Hurtt for failing to enforce federal immigration laws. She claims her husband would be alive today if the city had bothered to check up on the gunman's immigration status.

Now that Hurtt is taking a job to oversee partnerships between federal and local officials with Immigration and Customs Enforcement, Johnson -- and other critics -- say they're concerned the official who resisted immigration enforcement in Houston will now be in charge of promoting it.

"She was shocked at the irony," Johnson's attorney, Ben Dominguez, said.

As a police chief, Hurtt was a supporter of "sanctuary city" policies, by which illegal immigrants who don't commit crimes can live without fear of exposure or detainment because police don't check for immigration papers. During his tenure as Houston police chief, he criticized ICE's key program that draws on local law enforcement's support. He said in 2008 that local police "don't want to be immigration officers." He described that as a burden on the force.

This is unbelievable. Obama appoints Harold Hurtt -- a sanctionary city supporter -- to a "top immigration job" at ICE, to be the liason between the feds and the states on immigration. The same Harold Hurtt, who as former police chief in both Houston and Phoenix, outright refused to enforce federal immingration laws.

Meanwhile Obama and Holder are suing Arizona, Mexico is suing Arizona, there are countless lawsuits against both Arizona and the governor personally, and cities are boycotting Arizona business, including the feds.

And we got to witness this in the the halls of congress...
