Dreams from my surrogate father

aneta2.org

There have been numerous stories on the peculiar relationship between Frank Marshall Davis and President Barack Obama. There have even been reports that Frank Marshall Davis is in fact Barack Obama’s real biological father. I am not one to subscribe to conspiratorial theories. Whether or not Frank Marshall Davis is Barack Obama’s real father is not the point of this article. What is the point is there is no doubt that Frank Marshall Davis was the only father figure that Barack Obama truly had.

We have all heard the heart warming leftist propaganda story of how a Black Kenyan student and a White Kansas girl met in a Russian language class at the University of Hawaii. The two fell in love and had a baby boy who later would grow up to become the most powerful man on the planet. We heard the stories of sacrifice and hardship and how Ann’s selflessness was paramount; allowing her husband to continue his education at Harvard University. How a young mixed race child made it the top with hard work and perseverance. This was the narrative the media told the masses and they believed it.

Even if Barack Obama Sr. was Barack Obama’s biological father he was not an influence on his life. He did not shape his ideological world view. He did not fill young Barack Obama’s impressionable mind with anti-American rhetoric and Communist sympathizing thoughts.

That job was given to Frank Marshall Davis.

Frank Marshall Davis was born on December 31, 1905 in Arkansas City, Kansas. He was a journalist, political activist, community organizer, poet, photographer, and pornographer. He was a writer and editor for numerous underground and Communist sympathizing newspapers including The Chicago Star and later The Honolulu Herald.

Frank Marshall Davis was also a Communist. This is not opinion. This is a fact. His Communist Party Id# was 47544. He was a radically militant Black Communist. He blamed the start of World War II on American Capitalism. He denounced the Marshall Plan calling it, “White Imperialism” and “Colonial Slavery”. He preached wealth redistribution and nationalization of industry as well as government run and controlled healthcare.

Some of his articles were titled, “Free Enterprise or Socialism?” or “Yankee Imperialism”. He was also a hypocrite. For all his inflammatory language and writings aimed at the oppressive White people most of his closest friends were indeed White; including his pot smoking buddy and Barack Obama’s grandfather, Stanley Dunham. But perhaps his ultimate act of hypocrisy was the fact that his second wife was actually a White woman.

Frank Marshall Davis was such a threat to America’s interests and its security that the Federal Bureau of Investigations had a 601 page file on him and even classified him as an “Index A”. This meant that if in fact a military crisis should occur that he was to be immediately targeted for detainment.

This poor excuse for an American citizen was also the current leader of the free world’s biggest influence and mentor, our President Barack Obama.

Frank Marshall Davis was more than a mentor; he was like a father to a young Barack and helped shape his world views. He mentored Barack Obama in a child’s most formative years from age 11 to 18. It is in this period of Barack Obama’s life that he became less and less Barack Obama and more and more Frank Marshall Davis.

Those were the years under the sun drenched skies of Hawaii where Frank Marshall Davis taught Barack Obama about the things that would later shape and define who he is and what he believes. This is where he first learned about Black Liberation Theology and Militant Black Power. This is where he was taught to always be skeptical of Whites and to see himself as a victim of White America. This is where he embraced the theory of redistribution of wealth and class warfare. This is where Frank Marshall Davis instilled his Communistic ideology into his young pupil.

Barack Obama’s 1995 autobiography, Dreams from My Father really should have been called Communist Teachings that Frank Marshall Davis taught me. That would have been a more appropriate title. It is no secret that “Frank” was mentioned in his book 22 times, and the “Frank” in the book is in reference to Frank Marshall Davis.

Here are some of those excerpts:

Obama’s grandmother, (Toot) and grandfather, (Gramps) were having an argument over whether Gramps should give Toot a ride to work after being threatened at a bus stop by a panhandler. He looks to Frank for a solution. (p. 89-91)

When Toot is having difficulty convincing a drug abusing Obama to apply for college, it is Frank who convinces Barack that college is necessary. (p. 96-98)

Frank Marshall Davis tells Barack that “Black people have a right to hate Whites. (p. 91) He advises a young Barack to “keep his eyes open” and “stay awake” otherwise you could be “trained” against your own interests. (p. 97)

Obviously Barack Obama took his mentor’s advice to heart. In Dreams from My Father Barack Obama writes, “I chose my friends carefully. I chose the more politically active Black students, the foreign students, the Chicanos, the Marxist professors and structural feminists and punk rock performance poets.” (p. 100)

The leftist media never did their due diligence in exposing the relationship between an admitted Marxist Communist and Barack Obama. They never bothered to even ask Barack Obama any tough questions, while vilifying his Republican challengers and humiliating them for their Conservative beliefs. If the leftist media even had a shred of objectivity Barack Obama would have never even been a Senator much less the President.

So now it is plain to see why he refuses to put his hand over his heart during the pledge of allegiance. Or why instead of trying to fix the country’s economic problems he instead has opted to make them worse by forcing government run healthcare down our throats.

Whether or not Frank Marshall Davis is Barack Obama’s biological father at this point is somewhat irrelevant. What is relevant however is the undeniable fact that Barack Obama undoubtedly sympathizes with Communistic ideology. The truth is the only real father figure Barack Obama has had was Frank Marshall Davis. It is for this reason that he is Barack Obama’s father.

New Video: The Frank Marshall Davis Story You Haven’t Heard – Until Now

Original Article at RightSideNews.com

AB Independent Productions, in collaboration with Veteran investigative journalist Cliff Kincaid of America’s Survival, has released a new video that reveals in detail for the first time, the story of how communist and probable Soviet agent Frank Marshall Davis – arguably the most influential person in Obama’s life – was discovered, and how the national media attempted to cover this story up.

“Four years after we broke the story wide open with the release of a 600-page FBI file on Barack Obama’s communist mentor, we are still finding major elements of the media with their heads in the sand,” Kincaid said.

Davis was first exposed by noted researcher Trevor Loudon of NewZeal blog back in March 2007, a mere month after Obama announced his candidacy for president.  As is usually the case, Trevor’s source for this revelation was the communists themselves. Trevor quotes Communist Party USA member Gerald Horne who wrote in the CPUSA’s journal, Political Affairs, that Davis:

…spent a good deal of his adult life in Chicago, before decamping to Honolulu in 1948 at the suggestion of his good friend Paul Robeson (Ed: Robeson was staunch Stalinist).

Eventually, he befriended another family – a Euro-American family – that had migrated to Honolulu from Kansas and a young woman from this family eventually had a child with a young student from Kenya East Africa who goes by the name of Barack Obama, who retracing the steps of Davis eventually decamped to Chicago.

Realizing this was a potentially explosive story, Kincaid sought to confirm it through independent sources. In the video, Kincaid quotes more of Horne’s revelations, including the following prophetic statement:

At some point in the future, a teacher will add to her syllabus, Barack’s memoir, and instruct her students to read it alongside Frank Marshall Davis’s equally affecting memoir, Livin’ the Blues. And when that day comes, I’m sure a future student will not only examine critically the Frankenstein monsters that U.S. imperialism created in order to subdue communist parties, but will also be moved to come to this historic and wonderful archive, [referring to the communist party archive] in order to gain insight on what has befallen this complex and breathing planet on which we reside.

Did Horne know back in March 2007 that Obama would be the next president? Seeking further verification, Kincaid located University of Hawaii professor, Kathryn Takara, who had written her dissertation about Davis. She confirmed via phone that Obama’s “Frank” was indeed Frank Marshall Davis and that they had a significant relationship.

Kincaid obtained Davis’s 601 page FBI file in August of 2008. It revealed that Davis was not only a high level communist party member (CPUSA # 47544), but very likely an active Soviet agent. He was under FBI surveillance for 19 years and was placed on the Bureau’s “Security Index.” This list identified people considered dangerous enough to be summarily arrested in case of war with the Soviet Union.

Author and historian Paul Kengor details many of Davis’s subversive activities in his book “The Communist.” He discussed his evidence that Davis was a Soviet propaganda agent at a recent Kincaid press conference, The Vetting: Obama, Radical Islam and the Soros Connection. According to Kengor:

  • The Soviet goal was to create a separate “Negro Republic” in the American south
  • Later they would join the revolution to help create “Soviet America”
  • Davis joined the Communist Party about 1943, after the Hitler/Stalin Pact was signed
  • Davis founded and edited the CPUSA’s Chicago Star newspaper; regularly wrote virulently anti-American “Frank-ly Speaking” editorial
  • Davis had a “direct line to the Kremlin;” obtained exclusive interview for Star reporter with Soviet Foreign Minister Molotov
  • Soviet agents I.F. Stone and Lee Pressman wrote for the Star
  • Star editorial writer Howard Fast was a communist Hollywood screenwriter and winner of the Stalin Prize

Hawaii was not yet a state when Davis first relocated there in 1948. It had significant strategic importance and was thus the focal point of intense interest from the Soviets. Not coincidentally, it was swarming with communists. For example, Kincaid has uncovered a 1949 Saturday Evening Post article which described a 177 day-long communist inspired strike of the International Longshoremen’s and Warehousemen’s Union (ILWU).

A disaffected former communist ILWU member provided much of the information for the Post article. He said the strike was launched in an attempt by the Communist Party to take over the island. If successful, it would have pulled Hawaii into the Soviet orbit.

At the time, Davis was editor of the ILWU newspaper, the Honolulu Record, and was being paid by the ILWU. According to Paul Kengor, this was a job created especially for Davis before he even arrived.  He resumed his “Frank-ly Speaking” column, begun during his tenure as editor of the Star, and continued  to faithfully spout the Soviet line. Also according to Kengor, Davis spent much of his time photographing the Hawaiian shoreline using a telephoto lens.

Is there any doubt? I will say what we are all thinking: Davis was a Soviet agent.

So now we can fully understand the relevance of both Hawaii and Chicago to Obama’s communist mentor. Hawaii was considered a potential prospect for Soviet takeover, and had a powerful communist presence. Chicago was the birthplace of the Communist Party USA and has remained a safe fortress for communist activity to this day.

Nothing to see here; move along now.

At the same conference, movie producer Joel Gilbert exposed Davis’s seedy side in his new film, “Dreams from My Real Father – A Story of Reds and Deception.” He revealed that Obama’s mother, Stanley Ann Dunham, posed nude for a series of photographs taken by Davis, and was one month pregnant with Obama at the time. Gilbert’s thesis is that the child carried by Dunham was in fact Davis’s son. The evidence Gilbert presented in this film makes a very strong case for his thesis. It also provides a compelling explanation for Obama’s obsession with hiding his birth certificate, and the document’s riddle of inconsistencies discovered by Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s cold case posse.

Blackout

In 2008, Kincaid sought to get this story exposed in major media but they ignored it, calling Kincaid’s efforts to expose the truth “McCarthyism.” Later, when the story got too big to dismiss, the media glorified Davis and ignored or downplayed his communist past:

  • Newsweek’s Jon Meacham characterized Davis as “a strong voice for racial justice” who was victim of a “McCarthyite denunciation” by the House Un-American Activities Committee.
  • Time Magazine’s David Von Drehle wrote “Like his friend Paul Robeson and others, Davis perceived the Soviet Union as a ‘staunch foe of racism’ …”
  • The Washington Post wrote a 10,000 word article in 2008 about Obama’s Hawaii years, without once mentioning Davis.

A Washington Post reporter attended one of Kincaid’s conferences, calling it “a UFO convention.”

Even the Drudge Report refused to run Kincaid’s ads about Davis as “too controversial.”

Joel Gilbert publicly lambasted print and broadcast media, including some conservative media, for suppressing information about Obama. In promoting his “Dreams” film, Gilbert related how Talking Points Memo (TPM Muckraker) requested a review copy, illegally edited it and posted parts of the edited version on Youtube. TPM then informed the public “now they don’t need to buy the film.” Gilbert said that even Newsmax pulled his advertisements at the last minute, claiming to want to “move to the center.”

Gilbert’s reflections on the media are fitting here, because he spells out the danger:

All evidence indicates that Barack Obama was raised and indoctrinated by Frank Marshall Davis, Communist Party propagandist, during his formative years. And all evidence indicates that Barack Obama, his entire life, pursued the dreams from his real father. And what are those dreams? They are the dreams of a forced imposition of a classic Stalinist/Marxist agenda upon America at home and abroad. And what is the history of Marxism? …Marxism leads to economic ruin and the biological destruction of populations and societies…

American journalists have a key role to play in revealing the truth, and they must do so immediately, without further delay.

Would Obama have been elected in 2008 had Americans known the full story? Almost certainly not. The national media organs have actively suppressed this major story. If you don’t read Accuracy in Media, Breitbart, Right Side News, American Thinker, or one of the other conservative sites, it is likely you have never even heard of Frank Marshall Davis. This information needs to become common knowledge for voters prior to the 2012 election. It simply must get around.

Don’t Be Stupid, It’s Still the Economy

The United States Supreme Court has ruled.  The obama”care”tax is Constitutional.

Of course, that depends on what your definition of tax is.

Institutionalized “progressive” leftists in the “mainstream” media have mockingly praised the majority opinion of swing vote Chief Justice Roberts.  Conservatives have expressed scorn for Roberts over the decision.  How long will it be before there are calls to water board Roberts until he confesses to committing high crimes and misdemeanors, to be locked away indefinitely without trial in Guantanamo Bay?

Several weeks ago, Mitt Romney said: “It’s still the economy, and we’re not stupid.”  Then, after the Supreme Court handed his campaign a trillion pound sledgehammer with which to beat obama in the presidential race, Romney adviser Eric “Etch-A-Sketch” Fehrnstrom agreed with the obama administration on national television that the individual mandate in obama”care”tax is not a tax.

Cue the flashback of John McCain’s refusal to use Jeremiah Wright, Bill Ayers, Louis Farrakhan, Tony Rezko, Frank Marshall Davis and the highly questionable character of obama and his associations as a campaign issue in 2008.

Can you say pretty stupid?

In response, Conservatives demand that if Romney refuses to fight against the obama”care”tax he should quit the race.  Romney can no longer engage in that fight.  Romney’s campaign has managed to completely mishandle a gift handed to them on a silver platter by the Supreme Court.

That being said, there will be time to discuss the relative merits and pitfalls of the obama”care”tax ruling and Romney’s reaction after the election.  The mistakes of Roberts and Fehrnstrom have been made.  It is time to move on to what really matters to American voters.  The strategy must now be for the GOP presidential candidate to switch focus from the obama”care”tax controversy to America’s tepid economic recovery.

Recent official figures show that the U.S. economy grew by 1.9 percent in the first quarter of 2012, less than the 2.2 percent originally reported.  According to the annual report from the International Monetary Fund (IMF), this year’s growth forecast for the U.S. economy has been lowered to 2 percent.  The IMF also lowered its forecast for 2013 from 2.4 percent to 2.25 percent.  It also warned of the fiscal cliff known as taxmageddon, the $4 trillion tax increases and defense spending cuts that are due at the end of 2012.

The U.S. Gross Domestic Product growth rate in the first three months was slower than originally announced.  This news was accompanied by a downward revision in consumer spending.  After-tax corporate profits experienced their biggest fall since the last three months of 2008.

Meanwhile, U.S. employment rose only slightly in April.  The Labor Department reported claims for jobless benefits were higher last week, suggesting a slowdown in job creation

US retail sales fell for the second straight month in May, indicating that growth in the economy is still sluggish.  According to the U.S. Commerce Department, retail sales fell by 0.2 percent.

The Institute for Supply Management said Monday that U.S. manufacturing shrank in June for the first time in nearly three years.  The manufacturing activity index fell from 53.5 percent to 49.7 percent, the lowest reading since July 2009.  Readings below 50 indicate contraction.

The Federal Reserve cut its forecast for 2012 growth to between 1.9 percent and 2.4 percent. That’s half a percentage point lower than April’s estimate.

With facts and figures like these, it is time for the GOP to go aggressively back on the offensive against the failed economic policies of the current administration.  That the economy is tanking and employment prospects remain grim need not be explained to voters living that reality.

Give no quarter to the “progressive” campaign.  Do not let them off the mat.  While they are down, kick them as hard and as long as possible.  Rest assured, given half a chance, “progressives” kick with glee…without hesitation.

The survival of America and the principles upon which it was founded are facing an existential threat.  Don’t be stupid.

Obama’s Speech on Deficit Reduction: “My finely honed Political Instincts”

Our Obama, who art on vacation, Hollowed be thy head.
Your limo come, vacation’s done,
in Chicago as it is in Hawaii.

Give us this day our daily cheese,
and forgive us our conservatism,
as we forgive those commie, pinko, progressive, tree-hugging environmentalist wacko Van Jones clones who trespass against us.

And lead us not into solvency,
but deliver us from living within our means.

For thine is the Federal Reserve, and the student loans,
and the Obama stash, forever and ever – at least until the worm turns.
Amen.

The stupidity of Barack Hussein Obama’s supposedly intellectual political arguments goes beyond the pale. No, take that back! Obama didn’t say a thing. TOTUS did all the talking. Obama’s overhyped speech today, Wednesday, April 13th, didn’t deviate one whit from his commie track record. In fact it didn’t even start on time. He was late as usual…word has it that he was on the toilet. Presidentin’ makes you want to “go” don’t cha know. And then rumor has it that while walking to the speech he allegedly stopped along the way to squeeze the fruit – regrettably, Barney Frank couldn’t be reached for comment. Another possible reason given for the lateness of Obama’s arrival at the podium was the suggestion that the Obamas were held up reenacting that scene from the Geico commercial featuring Abraham and Mary Todd Lincoln. So Michelle supposedly told Barack to get her something good for her birthday and gives him some hints like “I want something shiny, which goes from zero to 200 in five seconds.” So Barack gets her a scale! But anyway, we digress – Time to get back on track with the weightier matter of the stupidity of Obama’s political speechifying arguments.

He’s a moron when it comes to economics, commerce, business, and finance.  Stealing the message of conservatism from the true conservatives, Obama magnanimously called on both Democrats and Republicans to balance the budget and work toward paying down the debt of the federal government. But then his inner communist took over and he decided that the way to accomplish the feat would be to put an end to the Bush-era tax cuts for those making more than $250,000 a year. Somehow, Obama is convinced that penalizing the productive will somehow translate into exalting the nonproductive elements of society. In other news apples and oranges have been deemed to be identical. “The only concrete proposal that he proposed was raising taxes,” said Eric Cantor, a member of the House GOP leadership. “That solution falls far short of dealing with the kind of crises that we’re facing,” said Cantor.

A blogger known only as Freddie Cougar said it best: “Raising taxes = ‘reducing tax expenditures,’ addressing ‘spending reductions in the tax code,’ ‘spending in the tax code,’ and ‘spending reductions in the tax code.’ Doublespeak at its finest.” It was a friggin’ campaign speech. Government has been the source of our prosperity? Good grief, it was another revisionist history lesson from our commie president. According to Obama tax cuts are the problem. “It’s all the Bush’s fault” – signed Moses. Poor Dubya, the Evil Genius. Obama is good at only one thing. He is an exceptional liar. Obama is a crybaby. Obama is a wimp. Obama is a whiner. Obama blames everyone but himself. Obama sucks. His entire talk could have been summed up thusly: “When I took office…it’s not my fault!”

Behold the Lying King! We’ve all heard the old joke that goes something like this: “What is the difference between the Lion King and Barack Obama? The Lion King is an African Lion. Obama is a Lying African.” Liberals inevitably call the joke racist. They don’t get the fact that liars can come from any continent. It’s just the plain fact, Jack that this one’s roots are from Kenya. Last we heard, after that stupefying speech, is that the village doesn’t want its idiot back. Good for the village! Perhaps the HildaBeast can spare a dime.

In a poor zoo of Africa, a lion was frustrated as he was offered not more than 1 kilogram of meat a day.

The lion thought its prayers were answered when one day a Honolulu Zoo manager visited the zoo and requested the zoo management to shift the lion to the Honolulu Zoo.

The lion was so happy and started thinking of a central A/C environment and a goat or two every day.

On its first day after arrival, the lion was offered a big bag, sealed nicely for breakfast. The lion opened it quickly but was shocked to see that it contained nothing but a few bottles of KGBean dip. The lion thought that maybe they cared too much for him as they were worried about his stomach as he had recently shifted locations.

The next day the same thing happened. On the third day again the same food bag of KGBean dip was delivered. The lion was so furious; it stopped the delivery boy and blasted him, “don’t you know I am the lion…King of the Jungle? What’s wrong with your management? What nonsense is this? Why are you delivering KGBean dip to me?”

The delivery boy politely said, “Sir, I know you are the King of the Jungle … but… you have been brought here on Frank Marshall Davis’ visa!”

Now we know that Obama’s speech was timed so as to not go up against Dancing With The Stars. We don’t know why; but considering the way Obama tap-danced around Libya and the economy, he might have won. Some people are saying Obama was a little bit testy during the speech. Hmmm… it looks like somebody’s March Madness bracket pick didn’t do so well. You know, ever since the CEO of G.E. became his advisor, everything Obama says sounds like a light bulb commercial. Walk to the light, little people! Walk to the light!

It was recently reported in the news that Obama had been accidentally locked out of the White House. For that one panicked moment Obama thought that they must have found his real birth certificate. At least the locked door to the White House gave Obama an alibi. “I didn’t do it. It was broken when I got here.” – Barack “Bart Simpson” Obama.

America has taken up the drinking game to pass the time during Obama’s speeches. Drone. Drone. Drone. Drone. Drink. Of course the game gets a little mixed up when it comes to the Obamartini – made with Absolut Zero.

And then there was Barry’s Audacity of Hype. Did he really say “My finely honed political instincts”? Bwahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha! I can’t breathe! First off, Barack, you are a politician. Second, all of our taxes are spent on the entitlements. Everything else is funded by loans. Barack, you are a fiscal imbecile. “Gubmint cheese is the best cheese there is. And it is free. Free for you and free for me,” – the essence of Obama’s talk about his stash and entitlements. “I’ll take Manchurian Candidate for $500, Alex.” Ahhh, Komrades. It is boootiful day in USSA. Did he say corpseman? This dumbass couldn’t even pass a middle school speech class. By Friday afternoon he will backpedal on everything he said by making what he said “perfectly clear”. Got it? For the Obamassiah, there is no issue he cannot straddle. Oh fer cryin’ out loud. Did he just denounce his own 2012 budget? Is he mentally challenged? Does he not recall what he threw out in January? Obama is nothing but a Puppet of Meat. Yo, Meat Puppet! Nobody’s clapping so quit waiting for the applause. It ain’t coming your way.

Is there any doubt about his Marxism? Like was said up front, Obama’s stupidity goes beyond the pale. What level of Hell has the United States of America sunk to when Obama’s sophist rhetoric is actually taken seriously?  Isn’t America starting to feel a bit bloated from all the smoke being blown up its collective arse? Furthermore, what the Hell is a Kwag-mahr? Is Kwag-marh a city in Pohkeesstohn?

Four trillion in cuts over 12 years…backed by his “fail-safe” guaranty. Wimpy: “I’ll gladly pay you Tuesday for a hamburger today.” LOL, when has congress ever followed up on a guarantee? Lock box anyone? America is going to have to practice bending over a LOT more… Can this get any worse? Of course it can! Darn it, Mr. President, would you at least treat us to dinner and a movie first?

Obama’s pandering for the senior vote is getting old. Note to Obama: You have lost the senior vote and you will not get it back. You stupid meat puppet teleprompter reading political hack. We all find you taxing, which explains this:

The Tax System – Explained With Beer

Suppose that every day, ten men go out for beer and the bill for all ten comes to $100.

If they paid their bill the way we pay our taxes, it would go something like this:

  • The first four men (the poorest) would pay nothing.
  • The fifth would pay $1.
  • The sixth would pay $3.
  • The seventh would pay $7.
  • The eighth would pay $12.
  • The ninth would pay $18.
  • The tenth man (the richest) would pay $59.

So, that’s what they decided to do.

The ten men drank in the bar every day and seemed quite happy with the arrangement, until one day, the owner threw them a curve.

‘Since you are all such good customers,’ he said, ‘I’m going to reduce the cost of your daily beer by $20.’
‘Drinks for the ten now cost just $80.’

The group still wanted to pay their bill the way we pay our taxes so the first four men were unaffected. They would still drink for free. But what about the other six men – the paying customers? How could they divide the $20 windfall so that everyone would get his ‘fair share?’

They realized that $20 divided by six is $3.33. But if they subtracted that from everybody’s share, then the fifth man and the sixth man would each end up being paid to drink his beer. So, the bar owner suggested that it would be fair to reduce each man’s bill by roughly the same amount, and he proceeded to work out the amounts each should pay.

And so:

  • The fifth man, like the first four, now paid nothing (100% savings).
  • The sixth now paid $2 instead of $3 (33%savings) .
  • The seventh now pay $5 instead of $7 (28%savings) .
  • The eighth now paid $9 instead of $12 ( 25% savings).
  • The ninth now paid $14 instead of $18 ( 22% savings).
  • The tenth now paid $49 instead of $59 (16% savings).

Each of the six was better off than before. And the first four continued to drink for free. But once outside the restaurant, the men began to compare their savings.

‘I only got a dollar out of the $20,’ declared the sixth man. He pointed to the tenth man, ‘but he got $10!’
‘Yeah, that’s right,’ exclaimed the fifth man. ‘I only saved a dollar, too. It’s unfair that he got ten times more than I!’

‘That’s true!!’ shouted the seventh man. ‘Why should he get $10 back when I got only two? The wealthy get all the breaks!’

‘Wait a minute,’ yelled the first four men in unison. ‘We didn’t get anything at all. The system exploits the poor!’

The nine men surrounded the tenth and beat him up.

The next night the tenth man didn’t show up for drinks, so the nine sat down and had beers without him. But when it came time to pay the bill, they discovered something important. They didn’t have enough money between all of them for even half of the bill!

And that, boys and girls, journalists and college professors, is how our tax system works. The people who pay the highest taxes get the most benefit from a tax reduction. Tax them too much, attack them for being wealthy, and they just may not show up anymore. In fact, they might start drinking overseas where the atmosphere is somewhat friendlier.

For those who understand, no explanation is needed.

For those who do not understand, no explanation is possible.

So Barry, what are we cutting in order to balance the budget? Oh, I see, you’re cutting employment and taxing the rich. Great plan!!! Okay, JackWagon, WHAT DO WE CUT? – Besides Defense? Typical Obama speech, lots of hype and no substance. I thought Pakistan said no more drones. Obama never ceases to amaze. He is laying on the lies and class warfare like there’s no tomorrow. Logic isn’t his strong suit. Come to think of it…nothing is his strong suit…unless flies on the lip count for something. America felt like it was watching tennis during Obama’s speech. Left – right, left – right. Teleprompter 1, teleprompter 2.

Obama could have stood on the podium and picked his nose for 30 minutes. The Main Stream Media would have still declared the speech a victory, and that was that. Obama throws out accusations at conservatives but offers no plan of his own. He avoids specifics like the plague. You can just envision Obama saying something like this: “I will give every American everything they want and it won’t cost a cent. I’m leaving it to Congress to figure out how to make that happen.”

The jackwagoniest of jackwagons; what a miserable, pathetic president we have. Expectations for today’s speech were low, but he still managed to hook an ankle on the bar he could have easily stepped over.

The highlight of the speech was Rip Van Biden’s reaction to it – which was a big effing deal! Joe slept though it!

Joe Biden engaging in a Big Effing Deal!

See the photo for proof. Old Joe has heard the commie spiel so many times that he can doze off through an entire progressive speech and not miss a thing. No big deal, Joe. The rest of the country was going comatose, too. All you missed, Joe, was Obama saying “My vision for America is one where we live within our means, blinded by my socialistic government ideology.” Got it, Joe? Good! Now, remember, Joe, that for the rest of us our vision for America is to wipe away all you FDR/Johnson/LBJ/progressing/Obama stains from our Republic. All we know is that Obama’s plan is heavy on the “fail” and light on the “safe.” Obama says he wants America to live within its means? Okay! – Then no more flying in a favorite chef from Chicago to make pizza at the White House. No more ridiculously expensive vacations on the public’s dime! No more lobster deliveries for Michelle. No more flying Obama’s dog Bo around on his own private jet. Man, I dunno. I mean, it’s probably pretty hard subsisting on a $15T budget. Perhaps Obama meant everybody but the government has to live within their means. There, that’s better! Be thankful for small gifts, America – at least he’s not using the stupid Slurpee story anymore.

That’s an F+ for effort, Barry, and a G- for substance. “My vision for America is one where we live within our means.” No it’s not, Barry. LIAR! LIAR! LIAR! LIAR! LIAR! LIAR! LIAR! LIAR! LIAR! LIAR! LIAR! LIAR! LIAR! LIAR! LIAR! LIAR! LIAR! LIAR! LIAR! LIAR! LIAR! LIAR! LIAR!
