Obama Money
Townhall.com ^ | March 24, 2012 | Bill O'Reilly

Posted on 03/24/2012 5:49:23 AM PDT by Kaslin

Filmmaker Alexandra Pelosi, Nancy Pelosi's daughter, has unleashed a firestorm of social controversy by interviewing some welfare recipients who told her on camera that they believe they're entitled to "Obama money." That is, welfare checks. Some of those Pelosi spotlighted are young men who are not even looking for work. They have plenty of excuses for that. But the bottom line: They want money handed to them, and stuff you if you don't like it. Also, some of these men have multiple children by multiple "baby mamas." Again, their posture is blank you if you don't approve.

That attitude appalls many hardworking folks, but truthfully, there always have been layabouts, and there always will be. But now, in some circles, it's almost stylish to be a parasite. Recently, Mitt Romney was confronted by a heckler in Illinois who said: "What about pursuit of happiness? You know what would make me happy? Free birth control!"

Whereupon Romney shot back: "If you're looking for free stuff ... vote for the other guy. That's what he's all about, OK. That's not what I'm about."

And therein lies the theme of the 2012 presidential campaign.

This has not been a good week for President Obama. The nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office has projected that Obamacare will cost about $50 billion more than last year's projection. In addition, the president's budget for 2013 will add another $9.6 trillion in debt over a 10-year period. This is not exactly the austere spending the nation desperately needs.

But Obama is unswayed. He is running as a "provider" and believes there are enough Americans who want free stuff to catapult him to victory in November.

Of course, the president is not going to openly endorse the nanny state. Instead, he will demand that the rich pay "their fair share" and hope voters buy into the insinuation that they are getting screwed by the economic system and, therefore, it is perfectly permissible to want payback in the form of government entitlements. That's just making things "right."

The labor unions are pounding that drum very hard. Speaking on public broadcasting, SEIU board member Stephen Lerner said: "I think there's never been a more exciting time ... (to) really talk about redistributing wealth and power." Again, the theme being that America is an unjust society that needs a socialistic overhaul, and now is the time to make that happen.

And Lerner may be on to something. Presently, we are a nation adrift. We are deeply divided on the fundamentals: capitalism, the power of the federal government, the rights of the have-nots. These are the things the upcoming election will address.

It really is all about "Obama money," which is really our money. How much should be spent, and where should it go? The battle lines are drawn. At stake: the future of the USA.

Inevitable consequences of the socialist machine. And what of the hosts upon whom these parasites prey? Who speaks for them? Who is THEIR champion?

Today’s Quote:
Give any person a fish and he eats for a day.
Give a person a welfare check, a free cell phone with free monthly minutes, food stamps, section 8 housing, a forty-ounce malt liquor, a crack pipe and some Air Jordans, and he votes Democrat for a lifetime!

That’s exactly right. How many members of the metastatic culture of thuggery, greed, envy, and idleness would have been conceived, if the degredation and vice had not been fed taxpayer dollar Miracle Gro by the great enablers?

Has Mama Pelosi disowned her errant daughter yet for the offense of truthfully portraying the attitude of members of a protected class?

And, far too many get to vote several times in one election. When they are outed, it’s called racist and due to the lobbying of racist groups, judges rule against what a majority voted into law.

We are a VERY SAD picture right now. I wonder how all those who wait for their Obama Money each month are going to feel when they really realize what broke really means.

Democrats have been workimg on that for fifty years and Obama is king of socialism.

Gee, I wonder why O'Reilly mentions Obomney but no other Republican candidates? It's such a mystery. /s

As usual the answer is on YouTube, it will be much worse than the movie clip, that will look like wealth, I am a milk white Nordic type but I know the truth behind the trailer firsthand, I know what it is like to look down on people in such straits even though you are doing the same drudge work but you feel vastly superior because your parents own the land on which you toil and you have your own hog to butcher so there is no need to steal pork. I have walked behind the mule, I have used the hoe, I have swung the axe and pulled the long saw, I have picked cotton bent over and I have picked it crawling on my knees, I have been stung by the green caterpillars that used to eat the cotton stalks, I have pulled corn and bundled fodder. I have done the feeding and the milking before school and again after school. I went straight from high school to boot camp mainly to get far away from that kind of work. If I were young and able I would still rather go back to that life than face what is coming.

Click on the link and see what real struggle is like and know that worse, much worse is coming.

I’d love it if someone would hand Stephen Lerner a copy of the constitution and ask him to point out where it ways that the takers are entitled to the wealth of the producers.

America allows for everyone to be as successful as they’re willing to work to become. I fear that’s not going to be the case in the near future if the march toward Socialism continues.

I have been wondering the same.

This is getting scary. Study the history of Juan Peron of South America. Obummer apparently has. The imposter in chief is following Juan’s plan step by step.
