    but but hope change, hope change, but he wants to save it. Just ask him. He is the reason the seas stopped rising. But just ask him, he is saving us from the evil rich.

    There is a growing group in society that feel like they are being left behind in this economy and resent the fact that some are continuing to thrive and prosper.

    Obama has tapped into that resentment and convinced them that there resentment is justified and they would be better off if those 1% were divested of their wealth for the good of the other 99%.

    Now you see the danger of a Government that is allowed to tax and redistribute. It seems Noble, and nice and the right thing to do because we are taking care of those less capable. But those that are reaping the benefits of this largess are greatful to the Government and not to the people living sufficiently below their means to carry those unable or unwilling to work.

    This misery will continue until the Resentful class figures out that if they want to be successful then they are going to have to do the things that successful people do which means: Going to work, Living within their means, setting aside money for a rainy day, only having children when they can afford them and only having as many children as they can afford, avoiding vices that deplete their resources i.e. Drugs, Gambling, Alcohol, Smoking, etc.

    I can see why Obama’s message would be so popular amongst the Resentful class. He tells them that it’s not their fault, that they just didn’t get a fair break, that someone else really should have to pay for their mistakes.
    What Juvenile doesn’t want to hear that message.
    But the adult recognizes that you can only burden the smart and industrious people for so long before they start spending some of their intellectual capital on keeping what is rightfully theirs.

    The bright note in this is that Obama is a weak, ineffectual president and soon we will be rid of him one way or another. I am optimistic about a future 3 years away.

    But what does Jefferson know? He is just one of those slave owning white guys who wrote that out of date proclamation. He could do nothing for us today. Why we have been waiting a 100 years for a President to give us free health care and tax the evil rich so as to spread the wealth around. What would Jefferson know about stopping the seas from rising by taxing all things CO2. It is not like he brought this Country together or anything like the Great and wonderful Obama. I mean under Obama the great uniter we have just had this great prosperity I mean just look how much money he has had spent…….

    You make a common error in judging the past using present concepts/morals. Jefferson was a revolutionary in his time. All the world owned slaves back then. But all the world also believed a greater evil; men are created unequal, i.e. peasant and noble. Jefferson and the other Greats solved the bigger evil and left the smaller evil for their children to solve. The Constitution wouldn’t have been ratified otherwise.

    When I look around my community I see a common dividing line between those that are thriving and those that are struggling – Personal responsibliity.

    I see a lot of people doing just fine in todays economy. We would all like to do better but my neighbors, family, co-workers are doing the right thing: Going to work, living within their means, supporting their community.

    Those that I see struggling are the ones that made aggregious errors in their past: Quitting school, getting involved in drugs and alcohol, committing crimes, etc.

    Now, it seems, You would like to erase the moral hazard associated with making poor choices. Which, in turn, will lead to more people making more poor choices if they don’t have to bear the consequences.

    The Jobs are out there – I opened up the newspaper this morning and saw pages of them but most of them require at least some modium of training. The opportunity to be a citizen and support your communit is available every day. Or the people you wish to exhalt can continue to languish in the shadows of this economy waiting for the Democrats to loot the producers to give them their due.

    The Corporate greed that you decry – Getting as much production out of workers as is legally possible and producing a product for which you can charge as much as the market will bear serves this country well. It creates goods and services that the rest of us avail ourselves of. And provides wealth growth and dividends to those of us who had the forethought to put some of our earnings aside in investments to tide us over when we are too old to work or to tired to work.

    You seem to have little understanding of how economics work. Communism never works and socialism is little better. The best way to unfetter the creativeity and motivation of the producers is to allow them to keep the fruits of their labor. Regan knew that and it churned up this economy back when it was in the doldrums of the early 80s due to Carter.

    As usual those that see their arguments falling apart and their shining leader showing his major flaws and failures, fall back once more on ye old slavery issue.

    Quote:
    “What I get out of this is that Jefferson was a hypocrite. “All men are are created equal” except the ones he owned.”

    Giving people something without them earning it only makes them lazy and demanding more. All you have to do is look at your own children. When you finally cut the apron strings, that is when they grow up.

    Jefferson and others did own slaves but they also left us a system to correct our mistakes, most of the time peacefully. I do not see President Obama and others giving any such legacy.

    Most of the 1% are new, Steve Jobs, Buffett, et al created their wealth because they could work hard in a country with free movement between classes. In Obamerica if you try to be special or expect honest wages for honest work the pack of hyenas will pull you down.
