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.

I would much rather Col. West run again for the House. Then he would be in line to be Speaker, where he’d have real power, and no term limit. He could pursue his agenda (which, coincidentally happens to be our agenda) with the full support of most of the American People.

Excellent Colonel. You gotta back in the political fight and represent us!

Kelvinator

I already asked him in Nov. He has his own business now. I wish he’d come back and run Alan Grayson out of office.

Uncle Ruckus

He will never run again

Kelvinator

No, I think he’s moved on. But he will still be a statesman.

Uncle Ruckus
Guest

Statesman…no…neither is he a man I f action…only a man of blog post and complaints

Andy Martin

Then ignore him instead of obsessing over him.

Kelvinator
Guest

Sorry you feel that way. I got to know him pretty well over a week and think he’s a great guy. Colonel in the Army and a Congressman who made is contribution but lost due to gerrymandering.

Uncle Ruckus

And he hasn’t ran for anything since

Andy Martin

What have you run for besides the door?

No, and I don’t expect he will. I think he could win his seat back from Alan Grayson, but that would be humiliating to lose to him twice.

I consider Churchill to be one of the greatest historical figures for good, ever. When the war ended the ungrateful Brits dumped him in the ash bin. They would have been speaking German if not for Sir Winston. He also said; “”We contend that for a nation to tax itself into prosperity is like a man standing in a bucket and trying to lift himself up by the handle.” and “If you will not fight for right when you can easily win without blood shed; if you will not fight when your victory is sure and not too costly; you… Read more »

I met the Colonel on a post-election cruise in November sponsored by National Review. He is such a class act, nice guy and totally humble. The first thing is said is, “are you going to run?” I think he’d make a great POTUS. But he said no.

Uncle Ruckus
Guest

Allen west name doesn’t appear in any of the polls! He knows he don’t have a chance of winning!!

Flower

YOU don’t have 8th grade grammar, yet you claim to be a vet? The military doesn’t allow anyone in without a high school diploma!!

Keith Bummed

That flower, would depend on a GED, and yes in long days before yore, if unca remus was old enough, he could have lied his way in.

Uncle Ruckus
Guest

MUHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!

Kelvinator
Guest

No. That topic came up on the cruise. There’s going to be a very crowded field. It will. Be hard for most of them to stand out. Including him. He told me he isn’t going to run. Watch for Ted Cruz, Rand Pau and Scott Walker. Anybody else, in my humble opinion, won’t stand out. Ben Carson carson might run, but he’s a stretch because he has no politcal experiemce

oifmack
Guest

Obama had no political experiencee, but he won………..

Kelvinator
Guest

Partly true. He had little experience, but he was a sitting senator with strong political connections. And a media darling. The media will actively resist any black republican. Don’t get me wrong. I’d support him. Even with zero experience, he’s still better than Obama, even after two terms as president.

Keith Bummed
Guest

The media darling was only due to the fact that most of the media is partial, it lies with a certain party, all of them, lies included for free, there is no integrity to journalism anymore.

Uncle Ruckus
Guest

Ben carson is a comedian’s dream come true….when you make statements like OBAMA WILL CANCEL THE ELECTIONS BECAUSE OF THE NATIONAL DEBT…you will never be taken seriously as a candidate. FOLLOW THE MONEY is what i would suggest

Keith Bummed
Guest

Depose the money and bring all office holders to justice.

Flower
Guest

You couldn’t carry Dr. Carson’s water! YOU’RE the comedian!!

Uncle Ruckus

The man said he actually believes obama will cancel the 2016 elections because of the national debt! Please don’t get upset with me because of what HE said on NATIONAL TELEVISION! COMEDY!!!!

It’s so nice that you found him to be the person that I thought he was.

Kelvinator
Guest

Like the other notables I met on the cruise, he acted like he was the one who was happy to meet me. Very approachable. You forget you’re talking to a famous person.

Keith Bummed

yet you only met him once, on a staged presence, who is he really?

Just because he is a Soldiers Soldier, and just because he has political experience, does not make him a quality candidate.

He is best suited for Secretary of State………

Uncle Ruckus

And I wish money would grow on trees! NOT GOING TO HAPPEN!!!

Joy Beum

I really wish climate change was our only threat. Never mind that the climate has ALWAYS changed. Don’t worry about the muslims wanting to behead us. They’re a JV team.

Climate change is our only threat….. global warming, that is..

If we were all kin to Frosty…..

Joy… to the point post…. nice job….

Keith Bummed

The world has already seen several ice ages, you think you can stop it?

oifmack

Clarification:

I do not believe in global warming. I do understand the historical value of the ice age(s). It is a cycle. Changing climates. Ice caps melt. Ice caps grow.

Joy Beum

Thanks Mack! And yes, silliness is the best…lightens the heart!

Flower
Guest

It isn’t a threat at ALL! 1 100th of 1 percent Celsius doesn’t even factor in probable error! There is NO threat! The globe has been in a cooling trend for the past 18 years, according to the most learned scientists.

However, one of Obama’s biggest contributors is a New World Order junkie and is pushing him to push more taxes and constraints on Americans!

senior74
Guest

What they are pushing is UN Agenda 21, the plan to make America part of a Communist one world government. The excuse is global warming/climate change but the real reason is to control everything, especially humans!!!

Old observer

The Bible says that in the last days, there will be a global government. It also says that men will be blinded, calling evil good, and good evil. Seems we’re seeing a pretty good spate of that even now!

Amen!

Joy Beum
Guest

No Flower, I am not concerned about climate change. What I am concerned with is what obamy is doing to this world: Allowing people to die at the hands of ISIS by not allowing us to go in and eliminate them, as well as spending us into oblivion. I won’t even get into Benghazi here!

Old observer

The earth has gone through alternating periods of cooling and warming from the beginning. Now, it’s just a tool of those who think the rest of us are idiots and unable to see that their cries of catastrophe from it are simply more ways for them to rake in more money, and more control over the rest of us.

There will be world wide war again, we are ot the only country falling, France is in ruins because of free immigration without citizenship. England is in turmoil over loosing the middle class and jobs, the euro-asian border is in conflict due to tyranny, we are in for some heavy issues world wide.

You idiotic purpose for birth control!!!

I am gradually becoming disengaged from free speech rights because of disgusting, toilet bowl residue such as yourself. Because that two legged garbage can, living in the oval office slanders America and her heroes, certainly is not your go ahead…….

When that asswipe obama farts, all of you come out……

Why???????

Joy Beum

Dear ”Lackofreason”: The families of the four Americans murdered in Benghazi are not laughing. They still grieve. With such great power as that of the office of president comes great responsibility that should not be taken lightly…nor the denial thereof.

While you laugh your ass off, Americans are fighting for your right to do that. Laugh on, oh fool.

My husband serves in the military. I’m well aware of the men and women that protect our freedoms. I just wonder how many more Republican led committees are going to have to find no wrong doing connected with Benghazi before people like you let it go?

“People like me” are Patriots. Trey Gowdy WILL get to the bottom of the coverup! The 6 men who where there and who have testified, told the truth! They were told to stand down and Hillary COULD have sent reinforcement in time, but chose not to. I don’t give a rip if your husband serves in the military, he has a wife who doesn’t understand what it takes to serve! I know. I served in the Army.

Uncle Ruckus

Oh…there were PLENTY!!! All crashed and burned…none offered anything to the middle class!

Panors77

How’s this? Less regulation on doing business in this country so business owners can afford to offer jobs again? How’s this….freedom to choose your healthcare plan and keep it if you like it, same with your doctor.

Keith Bummed

if it even happened that way lol

Uncle Ruckus
Guest

So the only things republicans offer are less regulations and tax cuts for the wealthy?? I’ll pass on that….if republicans don’t learn how to talk to WORKER folks they will lose, again

Rafael X

They have a different perception of the middle class than we do. Weird they think we are such close buddies. Huey Freeman and Uncle Ruckus (no relation) hate each other in The Boondocks.

Anyone with a lick of sense, could see why the two of you have a different perception of middle class……

I would like to see him picked for Ted Cruz’s vice president

Panors77

Cruz….just like obama was foreign born and is not qualified.

Flower
Guest

Ted Cruz was born in the U.S. and is definitely qualified.

Keith Bummed
Guest

If he was born on foreign soil, then he has duel citizenship at best, and therefore disqualified.

Flower

If you had been paying attention, you would have known that he gave up his Canadian citizenship last year. He is an American citizen, born to 2 American citizens.

Uncle Ruckus

I laughed hard at this one!!! FUNNY!!!

Old observer

What more can you expect when we have a muslim pretender in the WH whose true goal is to destroy this country???

Uncle Ruckus
Guest

Hmmmm….interesting….NO REPUBLICAN ALTERNATIVE for the MIDDLE CLASS

Panors77
Guest

More interesting……obamao nearing completion of his destroying the middle class.

Uncle Ruckus
Guest

And that republican plan to help the middle class is to offer tax cuts to the wealthy??

Flower
Guest

Even though you don’t understand economics, I’ll try briefly here: Tax cuts to corporations help them free up money for more hiring. That’s where jobs come from. They are already taxed over 40% and pay the majority of taxes in the U.S. But little people like you seem to think they should pay even more, which would effectively cause jobs to dry up – even more than they have.

Uncle Ruckus
Guest

The more money the WORKER has to s pend the more demand for products which create jobs

Andy Martin
Guest

Then get a better job.

Uncle Ruckus
Guest

To use you theory…since the rich and corporations have been getting all the tax cuts…where are the jobs?? Corporations are sitting on billions in profits.. where are the jobs??

Flower
Guest

Your president gloated Tuesday night at his State of Delusion address that there were millions more working now than when he took office. Do you not believe him???

Uncle Ruckus
Guest

When the president took office we were losing 800,000 jobs per month

Andy Martin
Guest

And now there are more people on food stamps and welfare than ever. Jerk

Flower
Guest

yep, 47 million more people on foodstamps … that doesn’t mean there are more jobs, it means people have given up LOOKING for jobs!

Well you don’t get to pick which black man can be President.

oifmack

There were a few black choices.

Sharpton and obama. Obama got his token punched. Sharpton?? Talk about a joke. He is a filthy, stupid, “get away with murder cuz i’m black” advocate. He us a freakin moulinyan with a criminal record.

Is that all yooz gots????? Disgustingly filthy, obsurd, silly, and intellectually flawed to the dumbest degree.

oifmack
Guest

Good point!! And to the point….

Obama is the reason there will never be another black democratic president. A black Republican might have a chance. But then again, you’ll see former black democrats convert to republican party so as to vote for notha brutha. No intellectual balance….

That worked so well for Herman Cain.

Both decent fellows but NOT what we need. We do NOt NEED just fininacial gurus or politicians but men who understand warfare as well.

Peters and Boykin?? Ok!!

Colonel West? Truly a Soldiers Soldier, but not Presidential material.

I would go with Ben Carson. Michele Bachmann.

Here, how’s this?

My list for a Republican administration (not in order or designated for any particular title)

Dr. Ben Carson
Michele Bachmann
Colonel Allen West
General Boykin
Judge Jeannine Pirro
Colonel Ralph Peters
Condi Rice
Kelly Ayotte

If you look at my choices, you can orobably distinguish who would have what title.

To the contrary… I know much about politics. Unlike you and your liberal butt buddies, i call it like it is. I dont use name or COLOR to vote for sombody.

Keith Bummed

Well then, as a Full Fledged Republican, you are part of the problem, we need a united country, not a divided country, and being either or republican or democrat, you stand for division.
We need a united country to bring us back to what our forefathers intended, we need citizens proud to be called Americans and people whom read, write and think objectively for the common good, neither of which is present in either party.
Common sense, reason and the ability to hold those in charge accountable for their actions are what this country needs.

oifmack
Guest

I am not the one dividing this country.

Our forefathers obviously would not approve of the way this country is governed. They certainly would not approve of the types of people in this country.

I am not the one ruining this country. I am not dividng this country.

Keith Bummed

The very fact that two parties exist, and neither one will pass a bill without getting what they want in return means stalemate, the parties have become everything that is destroying this country. We have drawn lines in the sand, and will not back down, this is an impasse and we the people suffer for it.

Flower
Guest

The more that Democrats hold the White House, the worse off America will be. That’s just simple logic.

Keith Bummed
Guest

The same holds true for Republicans Flower, they have an agenda that is inflexible in its tenets, we need people to think for themselves when they vote, we need responsible, ethical, reasoning and above all else those with common sense to run our country. The political and free enterprise have crossed lines just like the church and state have crossed lines, bot things put us at and impasse.

oifmack
Guest

“Inflexible in their tenets”

Are you sure you got the right political party?

I don’t hear Republicans threatening veto. I don’t hear Republicans covering up scandal after scandal.

Keith Bummed
Guest

I don’t hear republicans upholding the constitutional laws either, if they are so pure of heart and free of guilt, why are they not impeaching those that are breaking the laws of the constitution? The problem is they are just as corrupt as anyone else on the hill. Just as guilty and just as well impeached.

Keith Bummed
Guest

They will not pass a bill on it’s ability to help the country without concessions from the democrats and vice versa, they are all so corrupt and owing to their “owners” the ones whom paid to get them in” that they cannot and will not legislate for the country, but for own personal gain.

Flower
Guest

Your sweeping generalization shows a lot of ignorance on your part. You might want to re-think your stance, Keith. Not all Republicans have an agenda. The only thing “inflexible” as far as I’m concerned, is the left, even so, not all of them.

Keith Bummed
Guest

When the Republicans and the Democrats stop fighting, discuss laws like reasonable people and pass laws without requiring concessions from the other party Flower, then I will admit I am wrong.

I guess he’s referring to LBJ, Peanut Man, Slick Willie, and Barry Soetoro. The likes that would (dis)grace Mt. Rushmore.

LBJ’s war on poverty……………….$22,000,000,000,000 and counting. How’s that going?The grated society? Clinton not taking OBL from Sudan or refusing to kill him?

What you’re failing to see is that America’s moral compass is sliding into the sewer. NO society survives when that happens to them. And this financial “recovery” has been abysmal. Already it is historically slow.

Rome died due to decadence, so are we.

Flower
Guest

I always thought that too, but the reason for the fall of the Roman Empire was lead in their water pipes. This has been proven. But there are definitely societies that have collapsed because of the loss of their moral compass. The earliest were Sodom and Gomorrah.

Keith Bummed
Guest

The Mongal empire helped destroy Rome, the derelicts in power helped destroy Rome, it was not the lead in the pipes, the whole Empire crashed around their ears, their very actions snowballed into a major problem, and decadence was a key factor, slowly dying of lead poisoning was around through the middle ages because it was in the mugs, plates and cups they used. Someone sold you a theatre ticket when they told you that.

Keith Bummed

It was much more than lead in their pipes, it was political strife, class separation, and the fact that they would not share power with the people.

Yes America is so well off, the food stamp program is at record levels, we offer free cell phones to “those that cannot afford them” We do not enforce our immigration laws, Our borders are like sieves letting any who would harm us through at will.

“No Mr. President, that’s not what the oath you took was about.” Wrong Colonel. That was exactly what it was about–FOR HIM. Everything he says means something different to him than to us. His word spinning is to achieve exactly that. His words are a combination of outright lies, lies of omission and intentionally misleading statements. He never intended to honor the Constitution let alone uphold it. He “studied” it the way someone “studies” anything they intend to dismantle. Barry the Arrogant, emperor in his own mind, was on full display, tiny tantrum, strident conniving con man words and all.

Aaaahh, the SotU has come and gone. Lips were moving, and the mind was not. Typical ignorance coming from an office supposed to have the highest of morals, ethics, patriotic and family values. America, the country that is almost at the point of self imposed “martial law” and quite frankly, it is now a necessity, martial law, that is. It, martial law, will be what is necessary to get rid of the islamic puke. It will stifle and in fact, put black racists to sleep, causing civil rights to become disbanded, and outlawed.

If you see martial law, it will be to take your guns, to arrest those that would appose the new order. You should hope the day does not pass.

oifmack

No!! Martial law is a structure designed to exhibit a forceful obedience to government. Somewhat contradictory, martial law is not a permanent fixture. It is a fix………

Martial law is designed to “profile”……

You can blame blacks (2/3 at least) illegals, criminals of all brands, and islam. Because of these components, America is in need of dire measures….

Keith Bummed

Martial law is a police state that is supposed to be temporary, however it can be used wrongly, and it will be used wrongly, dictators do not like insubordination, they use the laws to their advantage, and according to it intent, martial law is a temporary state to secure lawfulness, but it can and will be miss-used.

Which is why we have our second amendment.

Keith Bummed
Guest

In the land of the free, enough said.
We will see martial law in our times, they will be going door to door, taking weapons from civilians, for with no weapons, the people have no voice. The corporations will have won, it will no longer be a democracy or even a republic, it will belong to the central government, with only one body.

Obama gave the State of Delusion address . . . his Narcissistic Personality Disorder makes it impossible for him to speak about truth.

Uncle Ruckus

Obama offers $3000 tax cut for the middle class and working republicans are upset because it doesn’t offer anything to the rich!!! I’ve never seen so many working folks fight so hard to make sure the rich gets more while they get nothing

Andy Martin

Obama had both houses and a super-majority 6 years ago. What did he do? Throw more money at WS and extend the GW cuts. Your boy is a fraud.

Jay Kenney

Yes, West reports that: 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. Problem is, he list the “legal” tax rates. Does anyone really believe those top 10% actually PAY those taxes? Delusional.

The top 10% control more than 73% of the nation’s wealth, as of 2010. Off shore, non-taxable asessts, non-taxable trust funds. By 2016, 1% of the world’s population will control over 50% of the world’s wealth. Nope. West won’t write about that!

Flower

Guess what, Jayne, they also EMPLOY people. So while you’re whining about them, keep in mind that they are business owners who employ millions!

Jay Kenney
Guest

You are absolutely correct, Flower. They DO employ people. But either you are unaware of or ignore the fact that the average CEO’s makes OVER 700 times the wage of their employees. and bank their earnings off-shore. Been keeping up on major corporation lay-offs?

I couldn’t resist responding.

Flower
Guest

Jayne, why do you care? If it’s so important to you, why not get yourself an MBA and get a job like that in one of the big corporations! You seem incredibly jealous, so that means you must be on welfare and/or foodstamps.

Riiiiiiiight moron. The over $1,000,000,000,000 taken in last year was from the poor. Now unless you can prove they are evading taxes, stop whining and tell your 47&’ers to start kicking in.

Until you disband the parties, re-align the laws to be enforced by all of the 3 parts of our government and enforce all laws as originally written, we will be lost. We need less government federally, allow the states to police their own people. The federal government started extorting the states for funds years ago. The federal mandates that are “executive” orders need to be policed by the senate and congress when the senate fails.

oifmack
Guest
There is no logic in your “re-write”. At this point in American history, the federal government is all we have (when there is leadership in the Oval Office). Certainly, much better than a few states. CA being a prime example of a socialist state, based on political affiliations and “all government” ideology, though pathetic, CA is the toilet bowl of America and not a Constitutional player. So, that in itself, blows your idea of “states policing themselves”, out of the water. The word “policing” is in itself, a necessity. But, it must be engaged based on Constitutional law and theory… Read more »

In theory you are correct, however the 3 seats of power in this country are at an all time high of dysfunction. The Senate and Congress are not performing their duties as police for each other, the are supposed to ensure that the other act to uphold the constitution, do you see any senator or congressman up on charges, the president, all have violated the constitution, but no one is upholding the written law?

Keith Bummed

It is not meant to “rule”. the federal state is meant to represent, not rule. It represents the states, the states are supposed to rule themselves, govern themselves, our state government has been eroded since the 60’s and forced to comply with federal mandates to comply with federal law by coercion or loose federal funds that were paid by the states to the states for years, the war started then, it is being lost, because our representatives have sold us out to the federal plan to ensure the federal way.

There is one thing that is an absolute fact about Obama’s State of the Union address, if his lips were moving he was lying. If his lips were not moving he was about to start lying.
