Obama Cites Kenyan Family Members’ Pledge ‘Economic Growth Can’t Just Be for the Lucky Few’
CNS News ^ | May 18, 2012 | Fred Lucas

Posted on 05/21/2012 5:04:08 AM PDT by SJackson

(CNSNews.com) – President Barack Obama invoked his poor family members in Kenya as a reason why “economic growth can’t just be for the lucky few at the top, it’s got to be broad-based, for everybody.”

Obama delivered remarks Friday at the Symposium on Global Agriculture and Food Security in the Ronald Reagan Building in Washington where he talked about plans for the United States and developed countries from the Group of Eight (G8) nations to assist African countries in agriculture.

“I’ve spoken before about relatives I have in Kenya, who live in villages where hunger is sometimes a reality -- despite the fact that African farmers can be some of the hardest-working people on Earth,” said Obama, who along with first lady Michelle Obama have a net worth of between $2.6 million and $8.3 million, according to financial disclosure forms released by the White House on Tuesday.

“Most of the world’s unused arable land is in Africa,” the president continued. “Fifty years ago, Africa was an exporter of food. There is no reason why Africa should not be feeding itself and exporting food again. There is no reason for that.”

Bono, lead singer of U2, sat in the front row during the speech.

The president went on to say that growth shouldn’t be reserved for those who already have enough.

“In Africa and around the world, progress isn’t coming fast enough and economic growth can’t just be for the lucky few at the top, it’s got to be broad-based, for everybody, and a good place to start is in the agricultural sector,” Obama said.

“So even as the world responds with food aid in a crisis -- as we’ve done in the Horn of Africa -- communities can’t go back just to the way things were, vulnerable as before, waiting for the next crisis to happen. Development has to be sustainable, and as an international community, we have to do better,” he added.

Obama presented a plan he said would help African countries be more self-sufficient. He pointed out that three years earlier, the G8 established a $22 billion package for global food security.

“On the other hand, we see an Africa that still faces huge hurdles, stark inequalities; most Africans still living on less than $2 a day; climate change that increases the risk of drought and famine,” Obama said. “All of which perpetuates stubborn barriers in agriculture, in the agricultural sector -- from bottlenecks in infrastructure that prevent food from getting to market, to the lack of credit, especially for small farmers, most of whom are women.”

He said under the new alliance, the United States will continue food and emergency aid to Africa, under the plan, but “challenges” more nations, companies and non-governmental organizations to take action and G8 countries to honor commitments.

He announced 45 companies “from major international corporations to African companies and cooperatives” pledged to invest more than $3 billion for the effort. The plan also calls for exploiting mobile phone and satellite imagery for weather forecasts and market prices to be in the hands of farmers. The World Bank will also weigh in on rising food prices. Lastly, the plan focuses on nutrition.

“When there is good nutrition, especially in those thousand days during pregnancy up to the child’s second birthday, it means healthier lives for that child and that mother,” Obama said. “And it’s the smart thing to do because better nutrition means lower health care costs and it means less need for assistance later on.”

Perhaps he should help his relatives in Kenya, though I'd prefer he helps his illegal immigrant relatives living here off the public first.

These guys don't deserve their money! The government should just take it and give it to government union pension funds that are more deserving!

Africa was exporting food when white farmers farmed. The black disposessed the whites, murdering and burning them and their posessions. Now they are hungry. Tough.

Let's see him lead in this area. How much “charity” has he dispersed over the last year. If he was serious then I would expect at least 50% donation to income ratio. I know this will not happen because liberals are much better at spending other peoples money then their own.

Africa is not an exporter of food because of economic conditions.

it is because of political conditions that are not changing.

It has always been that way and unless there is a change towards capitalism, it will remain the same as it has been for the past 50 years as well.

We have a president who does not understand this and wants to implement the same plan here.

Billions. It's just more efficient for him to give our money away than his own personal funds, which are more limited.

Well, well, well. Such a collection of Agenda 21 phrases and Lib cliches. And the reason that poor Africa is poor is the Wealthy nations? Marxist leadership like Robert Mugabee deserves none of the blame? Obozo is still working on how to make the US as crippled in Agriculture as Africa. Vermin.

Any charitable donations to that hungry kenyan village? (Crickets)

Maybe Moochelle should go teach the in-law clan (and the outlaw clan) to grow veggies and send them some white house honey

Rush Limbaugh pointed out on his show that $100 would change the life of Obama’s half brother who lives in a mud hut.

The president’s 2011 federal income tax return shows that about half of the first family’s income is the president’s salary and the rest comes from his books.

Obama’s tax return showed charitable donations of more than $172,000. Obama is donating after-tax proceeds from his children’s book to the Fisher House Foundation. The charity helps veterans and military families receiving medical treatment.

The ‘lucky few’???

Really??!!

Maybe this statement would be more accurate (certainly, more honest) if he said the ‘hard working’ few!

Luck is no more a prerequisite for success in America than it is anywhere else on earth. If it WAS, everyone breaking the law, risking death and worse to get here would stay put in their homeland and cash in on their ‘luck’... THERE!

Success in any country is all about personal autonomy within the law, opportunity and very hard work!!!

What "O" and other Liberals refuse to recognize is that here in the U.S, we have MORE and GREATER personal autonomy (guaranteed) and unlimited opportunity along with ready and abundant rewards of every kind for those who are willing to work hard !!! PERIOD... If it was only about luck, we'd all be sitting at home waiting for someone to knock on the door, hand us a million bicks and say: 'Here, go have a ball!!'

Throughout history, poverty is the normal condition of man. Advances which permit this norm to be exceeded — here and there, now and then — are the work of an extremely small minority, frequently despised, often condemned, and almost always opposed by all right-thinking people. Whenever this tiny minority is kept from creating, or (as sometimes happens) is driven out of a society, the people then slip back into abject poverty. This is known as “bad luck.”

A radio evangelist of a bygone era, Herbert Armstrong, used to frequently say that there were, broadly speaking, two ways of life- that being the way of ‘give’ and the way of ‘get’.

A system based on the voluntary and peaceful free exchange the economic analogy of the way of ‘give’. In this case that each party to an exchange must give sufficient value to the counter-parties that they freely agree to a mutually satisfying exchange.

Economist Franz_Oppenheimer observed that, broadly speaking, two ways to gain the wealth of other- that being what he called the ‘economic means’ and the other the ‘political means’. [1]

“There are two fundamentally opposed means whereby man, requiring sustenance, is impelled to obtain the necessary means for satisfying his desires. These are work and robbery, one’s own labor and the forcible appropriation of the labor of others.”

Free people who are committed to live at peace with their neighbors and within the rule of law can only gain the things they need to sustain their lives by creating value to exchange with others. This is work. States on the other hand, must expropriate wealth. As George Washington warned, the State is only power. The State simply uses its power and monopoly on the use of deadly force to take what it needs from those within its grasp.

Having said that, to assert that ‘Economic Growth Can’t Just Be for the Lucky Few’ defies the reality of human abilities. Some people are just born with more economically valuable skills than others are. That doesn’t make them any less human. That doesn’t mean that God doesn’t love them any less. That doesn’t justify treating them differently. The simple truth is that I cannot tell a joke as well as (pick your favorite here), or I cannot act as well as (pick your favorite here) and I cannot dream up as valuable a business idea as (pick your favorite here).

But what I can do, what value I can create, what things I can make and build are mine, and I have just as much an unalienable right to the fruit of my labor as some famous rock group who fight enforce their copyrights or some famous actor who fights to stop pirating of their movies.

When government adopts the idea that ‘Economic Growth Can’t Just Be for the Lucky Few’, then government gets to decide who wins and who loses. WE DID NOT GIVE OUR GOVERNMENT THAT ENUMERATED POWER! And if our government assumes it has that power, then the several States must convene a convention to make it clear they don’t.

The Apostle Paul stated that people cannot be godly and live at the expense of others. He also said that a person cannot be godly if he does not take care of his own family. Government has interposed itself as the arbiter of economic values. Allowing government to do that results in an economy that is base on the ‘political means’ instead of the ‘economic means’, on the way of get rather on the way of give.

Barry, friggin moron, if it was all a matter of "luck" then it means it wasn't of their doing. If it wasn't of their doing, then the outcome is nothing they can be blamed for. If it's nothing of their doing and this is the way it usually is, then how do you propose to force it to be any other way? State-control? Oh, gee, we've seen the fruits of that in the Soviet Union, Communist China, Cuba, the UK, Canada, the U.S. labor unions, Nixon's wage and price controls. Oh, I know, it's never really been tried before and that's why it hasn't worked, but if you have enough control then you and your little clique can make things go the way you want them to. Hey, isn't that pretty much just like what you have been criticizing the rich few for when you're not referring to them as merely lucky?

Go back to Hawaii and do something you were really good at in high school: being in a daze, smoking a lot of dope, snorting coke, and going back to the dorm rooms of "brothers" you met at the local gym (all mentioned by him in Dreams from My Father).

This is breathtaking. We are borrowing 1 and a half trillion dollars a year to get by but we "have enough" growth that we can start bailing out Africa despite the thousands and thousands of Americans who are struggling to keep their house and worrying how they are going to feed their families.

...where he talked about plans for the United States and developed countries from the Group of Eight (G8) nations to assist African countries in agriculture.

Maybe if Africans starting working more and 'warring' less they could feed themselves... How long have we been 'helping/enabling' these African countries anyway?

Gee, Odumbo, I thought the US was wrong and never worked. How come your grossly inferior Kenya has such problems?

Since the USA has done more than any other country to feed the inferior people of the world maybe your inferior intellect is wrong along with your fellow Marxist followers.

If a failed Kenya bothers you so much just resign (oh please do). Take Holder with you and a bunch of “his people” and go to Kenya and try your Marxism directly and see how it works.

No, you would rather bankrupt the USA with Marxism. How is that going to work for the rest of the world with a defunct USA? Your ignorance knows no bounds and all your supporters, also known as the enemy within, are exactly like Muslims in that they only destroy societies.

Odumbo, the first wookie and all the rest of his Marxist filth are just like sexually transmitted diseases. Fun to get, awful to have, difficult to get rid of, and can be deadly.

Obama, once again, prattles in the fantasy world of Leftwing ideology. Would he learn why food production in Africa has declined, relative to population? Look at what an international Leftist lynching did to what was once a near paradise, called "Rhodesia": Rhodesia & The Rhodesians.

Incidentally, reference to those who succeed & prosper as a "lucky few," is a certain tell-tale that the speaker is wholly clueless--destructively clueless--as to how any people prosper. (To give the chief demagogue a hint, which will never appear on his teleprompter, it usually involves the multi-generational pursuits of families where children are taught that they must work for what they would achieve; must husband their resources for future needs & above all, must accept personal responsibility for the good or ill results that follow their personal efforts.)
