Condensed version of Obama’s SOTU

The working people of the American Union marked the past year, the year of the historic 7th Obama government year, with new successes in economic development and advancement of the people’s well-being and cultural level.

All economic indicators are up. The Party has eliminated unemployment. The population of workers out of the workforce has gone down from ten million workers out of the work force before, to ninety-three million today. A clear sign that our central plan is on the right track.

Health insurance through ObamaCare has met even more success. Before ObamaCare the costs of healthcare for the workers was an astronomical 2.3 trillion dollars in 2007. Healthcare costs are now dramatically down from 2.3 trillion to only 4.1 trillion dollars annually today and are projected to go down more further faster!

On the world front the American standing in the world is the best it’s been in decades. Worldwide polls show respect for America has risen from 62% of those polled worldwide liking and respecting the United States seven years ago to 7% of the world liking and respecting the United States today. A dramatic increase by any measure. This new respect for America is due to the Party’s commitment to world peace which has resulted in global stability not seen before in our lifetime.

Domestic peace, too, has greatly increased. Again, the numbers speak for themselves.

In sum, the state of the Union is strong and you have every reason to be proud of the central planning and guidance of me.

You may stand, clap, and thank me now.

80 minutes of State of the Union distilled into 5

Ladies and gents, based on last night’s State of the Union address, I’d like to share two quotes that I believe define the essence of what President Barack Obama was trying to convey – and how it is the antithesis of who we are as a “free” people.

And I will take this moment to remind the president that a minimum wage job is not a career and no one should have a goal of raising a family on $15,000 a year. Perhaps if we actually had real economic and job growth, that wouldn’t be the case?

Also, Mr. President, “the shadow of crisis” has not passed – just ask the two Japanese men being held under threat of beheading by ISIS if $200 million ransom isn’t paid. And if the shadow of crisis has been lifted, then why do we have three U.S. Naval warships ready to evacuate the U.S. Embassy in Yemen? Oh by the way, that’s the second U.S. Embassy that will have been evacuated in less than a year.

Here’s the first pertinent quote from Sir Winston Churchill:

“Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery.”

I use that quote because to me that defines Obama’s new ‘middle-class economics’ where he stated, “it is the idea that this country does best when everyone gets their fair shot, everyone does their fair share, and everyone plays by the same set of rules (Unless you’re the New England Patriots). We just don’t want everyone to share in America’s success – we want everyone to contribute to our success.”

Hmm, let’s see, who gets to define what’s fair? And I agree, everyone should contribute to America’s success – but remember, the top one percent of income earners pays 38.1 percent of taxes, the top five percent pays 58.9 percent of taxes, the top 10 percent of income earners pays 70 percent of taxes.

So, if 90 percent of income earners only pay 30 percent of all taxes – what is fair about that? And I concur, we need everyone, all hands on deck, to contribute to the American success story. But it seems Obama’s vision is that a few contribute more – his definition of fair – in order to redistribute fairness via “free” benefits. Truly not a principle of a Constitutional Republic, or a free market economy.

And here’s the second quote, from Abraham Lincoln:

“Property is the fruit of labor…property is desirable…is a positive good in the world. That some should be rich shows that others may become rich and hence is just encouragement to industry and enterprise. Let him not who is houseless pull down the house of another, but let him work diligently to build one for himself, thus by example assuring that his own shall be safe from violence when built.”

What President Obama espoused last night is a disregard for the efforts of individuals to succeed over his desire to promote collective achievement.

His vision is not an America based on an equality of opportunity and the pursuit of happiness. Obama’s objective – truly that of progressive socialism – is one of equality of outcomes through a government guarantee of happiness. And that, ladies and gents, has never ended well in the history of the world.

It does end up as Churchill described, “an equal sharing of misery,” as the personal desire to excel is eroded, degraded, defeated and destroyed – something Obama truly is NOT doing with militant Islamism. Than again, listening to him last night, you’d believe we’ve achieved global tranquility.

And what exactly is “smart power?” Seems to be that means talking a lot about the weather being a severe threat, while denying the enemy is beheading and attacking.

Obama’s speech was nothing about viable policy – and tell the 92 million Americans who have been dropped from the workforce the economy is doing well. His speech was about defiant political posturing that he believes sets the conditions for his successor and forces the masses to vote for their own largesse from the public treasury.

It’s easy to stand up unchallenged, and promise everything to everyone – except those whom you mostly despise, hardworking Americans.

Obama’s speech was brilliantly themed – but promotes only failure. Middle class economics is just a spruced up way for progressive socialists to advance wealth redistribution – you cannot grow an economy without capital investment.

But even after being in office this long, Obama just doesn’t get it. If you have the time, watch the State of the Union address given by President Bill Clinton after the 1994 midterm loss he suffered with his famous quote, “The era of big government is over.”

Someone should have had Obama watch that speech, instead of presenting himself as a tone deaf and obtuse president who lectured us all about “better politics” — and told us that “My only agenda for the next two years is the same as the one I’ve had since the day I swore an oath on the steps of this Capitol – to do what I believe is best for America.”

No Mr. President, that’s not what the oath you took was about.

Thoughts on President Obama’s State of Dis-Union Speech

You have to give Mr. Obama credit, he is in no way recognizing the worst political defeat in recent history. Obama will remain focused on his, and yes I mean “His” political talking points.

The new narrative to be established is quite clear ­ middle class talking points. Now here’s a guy who’s own so­called economic policies have done nothing but decimate the Middle Class. From ObamaDoesntCare act being shoved down Americans throats and one year after implementation the Middle Class is seeing double digit rate increases, not knowing if they are able to afford to keep their “Affordable Healthcare” plan. Obama’s ideology has been nothing but the radical big government agenda under the “progressive” banner. There’s nothing progressive with an agenda that demonizes success in our Constitutional Republic. A Republic’s who’s economic history bases it’s ideology on Capitalism and the Free Enterprise System.

Mr. Obama is an unabashed radical left wing social Marxist. Theirs no hiding he espouses the Karl Marx theory of economics ­Government is the cure all: “You didn’t build that”; tax the rich; Fairness; income inequality; Fair wages; Middle Class; Working Poor and Income Redistribution.

Mr. Obama’s track record of no fiscal restraint or coherent economic policy, will continue in 2015. Which way is the wind blowing today? Who holds the Congressional power? Obama has no problem taking his antique road show on the campaign tour to try out his latest of soundbites: Free College tuition, tax cuts for the middle class; tax the rich and higher minimum wage. He’s an economy killer, a capitalist calamity and a Free Enterprise Fraud. This is the same man who’s radical EPA shut down coal mines in West Virginia in 2014, which caused the loss of 1,000 very good “Middle Class” paying jobs. Jobs with an average annual salary of $65,000. So you have to give Obama credit for continuing his taxpayer funded infomercial roadshow and lying to the faces of his sycophant supporters, knowing the media honks following him. will not hold him accountable for uh um lying to the American people. However, those Obama infomercials make for great soundbites airing on the 6:00 p.m. and 11:00 p.m. nightly news.

This Tuesday evening Mr. Obama will conduct his seventh State of the Union address. It will be more of the same self serving shameless dividing whine: the voice of discord, uninspiring, continue blaming and taxing the rich, and in all likelihood say something to the effect: all we are asking is for the wealthiest of Americans to pay their fair share. Yes, that’s all the big government Great Divider is asking! More class warfare, class envy to be spewed by the Great Divider. We’ll hear the good ole liberal democratic slogan “Government Investment”, “Investing in the future” which is the Progressives answer in keeping Americans indentured to the federal government. An $18 trillion debt and growing is nothing for the irresponsible economic wrecking ball in the White House!

It’s incumbent upon the Democratic Party, including Barack Hussein Obama, to create an entitlement mindset for our youth. The government will pay for it! Uh um who is the government? The taxpayers are the government, but Barack and Company want more of what you earn!

So Tuesday evening at 9:00 p.m. EST one might as well watch real comedians and tune in to tru-TV’s Impractical Jokers!
