Do we have any good veins left?

It seems that I know at least 23 people that have lost their jobs during the past year. They all voted for Barack Obama as their president. They voted for hope. They voted for change.  After wowing record breaking crowds with his brilliant oratory and his charming personality, I wonder if any one feels somewhat  suckered?

Today the American Thinker ran this interesting piece on Obama and his “suckers”.

Suckers United for Change

By Kyle-Anne Shiver

Now that we’re more than 100 days into the Obama presidency, the handwriting is on the wall regarding our new leader’s game plan for America.  Spend other people’s money like a Madoff on steroids.  Let every enemy on the planet know there’s a wimp in the White House. Let every ally know the wimp in the White House will do nothing to help them when push comes to shove.  Let the 50 states know there’s a power coup in play that strips them of constitutionally guaranteed liberties.  Let every company know that neither they nor their non-union employees are safe from Chicago-Way thugs and their mouthpieces in the media.  Let the 300 million American citizens know that the rule of law, applied equally to all, is about to be replaced by special favoritism in the form of “empathy.”

All in all, one would need to be a numbskull not to see banana republic written all over the current administration and its intent.
If asked for a word to describe an Obama voter, there is only one that any sentient person could offer:  SUCKER.
These are folks who buy a used car from a slick-suited, smooth-talking, salesman of the decade who laughs every step of the way to the bank.  These are folks who agree to 25 medical tests to find out they have a planter’s wart.  These are folks who call immediately to buy the $19.95 super deal on an under-bed storage box they could buy any old day at Wal-Mart for a buck.  These are the folks who think day old bread will make you sick.
They’re the kind of voters that every crooked politician has drooling dreams about every night of the year.

So far my aunt is the only person I have spoken with that will admit she is sorry that she voted for Obama. She said she will never again vote for someone just because they are black. She was skeptical of Obama but still remembered a time when African Americans were struggling for civil rights. She was right there when Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated. She felt that our time had come. I explained to her that yes blacks have had their time now but at what expense? It makes more sense to me to have a competent leader.

The Wall Street Journal reported today that unemployment rate has increased and Obama intends to combat that by offering more Pell grants and training

WASHINGTON-Obama Calls April Job Losses ‘Sobering Toll’ The unemployment rate, which is calculated using a survey of households as opposed to companies, increased to 8.9%, the highest level since September 1983.

Mr. Obama pointed to stabilizing consumer spending and home sales and a recent rise in construction spending as evidence that “the gears of our economic engine are slowly beginning to turn.”

“Step by step, we are making progress,” he said.

He unveiled new steps to make it easier for jobless people to get new skills at a community college or in a training program. Many workers currently collecting unemployment would lose their payments if they return to school. Others can be ineligible for student aid based on the incomes they no longer earn.

Since the recession began in December 2007, 5.7 million jobs have been lost.

Mr. Obama directed Education Secretary Arne Duncan and Labor Secretary Hilda Solis to work together to help unemployed workers get Pell Grant scholarships, encourage states to update rules that may limit educational opportunities, and create a new website — http://www.opportunity.gov — to describe training opportunities.

Obama sushi or the Hope and Change spicy roll.

Great more government money spent on training. Hmmm How does that help the friends I have that are unemployed with master’s degrees and doctorates? Not everyone that is unemployed is undereducated. I wonder if Obama realizes this. Perhaps Obama should have attended a tea party or two and he could have met some real live unemployed people. And there goes that name Arne Duncan again, somehow these guys don’t make me feel very secure about anything. How about you?

    i would have to agree. I have friends that just graduated from colleges and they cant find a job anywhere. I always felt safe in the healthcare business but now that the White House wants to regulate EVERYTHING, including medical, makes me very insecure ….

    a lot of people feel that something is not quite right but they have too much pride, or something liek that

  2. If it weren’t so sad that people were so easily duped by this our esteemed Usurper-In-Chief it would be funny. But nevertheless the title of the American Thinker article is hilarious because when I saw all of the tear-stained cheeks on the night of the election that’s all I could think about is how angry they are going to be when they realize that they have been suckered….by a “black” man at that.

  3. *chuckles*

    There’s lots of work available here in Wyoming, as long as you have a Masters Degree, and a CDL!

    No, I’m not joking.

  4. Sad, sad situation. And after people ‘get it’ and go through their anger and grief (and we know they will encounter this because we went through it last Nov/Dec), we are STILL STUCK with this looser administration & congress.

    I still struggle with this question: Is this piecemeal destruction of America a planned event or is it due to simple incompetence?

    I’m an unemployed industrial engineer with a master’s degree. Maybe I could go get some training on community organizing and score some stimulus money!! Maybe work for someplace like ACORN or be a teller at BoA!!

  6. Sonya Kitty@”I still struggle with this question: Is this piecemeal destruction of America a planned event or is it due to simple incompetence?”

    Very definitely planned. You get national health care–you already have Social Security which makes retired people, elderly people, dependent on the government. You have national health care that gets everybody, not just people on Medicare/Medicaid, dependent on the government for health care. And, essentially, a government-run school system for the majority of people. The sectors of our life that are controlled and dominated by the government are growing.
    According to Mark Levine “, the statist knows exactly what he’s doing….This is all intended to build a political base, so if anybody dares to question these entitlements, they’ll be defeated.” This is the agenda of the left. To create a nanny state.

    • But a plan would imply these people are true geniuses, which I’m not ready to concede to them just yet.

      Here’s the other part: I would ask Obama –let’s say you speak Korean, which part of the peninsula do you choose to live on, north or south? Even to ‘rule’ in North Korea–you’d have to be crazy to want that! They invent nothing, they progress nowhere, they enjoy nothing! The choice between a centrally-planned and a free market country is such a no brainer to me. Are they truly that sick? Or are they just so drunk with power and short sighted they don’t bother to think it through?

      ARGH!! 🙂

    Yep, conservative black woman. I loooove your blog as well. :)Checked it out last night.

    This is what has happened in the UK. Conservatives wouldn’t dare try to dismantle public services, esp NHS, however failing it is. To do so is political suicide. Love reading UK newspapers.

    Mark Steyn, conservative writer who has lived under UK, Canadian and US healthcare, is very interesting to read and listen to. He says, (paraphrasing) “The growing of gvt. then changes the nature of political elections. Each election becomes a fight about public services. All other issues become non-existant.”

    Besides, as I have stated before, everyone high up in gvt of any party (liberal democrat, labour, and tory) ends of receiving special treatment within the NHS, so they are all full of it.

    • power doesn’t really pay the penalty for the poor choices they foist on the rest of society, and let’s not be shy here, power really is the issue. Conservatives haven’t been willing to be very conservative because they too recognize that spending from the public dole increases their power base.

      It ought also to be recognized that the chief reason Europe has been able to “afford” its socialism is the booming American economy that pulls the world’s economic train and provides European security on the cheap. If the US socializes its economy and guts it’s military, everyone will be affected.

      Our entire system needs reform and neither party is currently interested in doing so because it would mean eliminating their own power.
