Obama: Leftist-Marxist

Founders Some rights reserved by wstera2

There are several articles recently posted, which say Obama is a Leftist or a Marxist, now. There are articles, which show Obama participating in a rally for a Marxist five years ago.
Time magazine has published an article, which concludes that Obama is a Leftist now.
Another article enhances the Time article. It says Obama is a Marxist.
Here’s an excerpt from American Thinker:
    "Update: Ed Lasky pints out that in 2008 Obama was photographed conspicuously holding Fareed Zakaria's "The Post-American World," and these days he is photographed holding a book about Reagan. How times (and political needs) change. Ed writes:
    He believed in American declinism-and encouraged it.
    But then his own job was at stake -so he tried to morph into the image of Reagan-the apostle of American exceptionalism (the shining city on a hill) and greatness.
    Will Americans buy the rebranded Obama?"
Obama has shown a long term commitment to Marxism. A long term trait is likely to remain. Obama is not above trying to deceive. Deception may improve Obama’s poll numbers, but it is still deception.

Promises, Promises; Phony

Promises

Obama has made a lot of promises. One of his promises was that he would go through bills line by line. The idea was that he would remove or veto earmarks. He didn’t deliver on that promise. Now he makes a similar promise in his State of the Union address. This time he said he would veto earmarks. People who do not keep their promises, are phony.

Harry Reid has said that Obama should back off his “veto earmarks” remark. We’ll be watching to see how many earmarks Obama vetoes.

Income redistribution

Obama has not rejected income redistribution. He reaffirmed his goal of taxing the rich. He agreed to the compromise of not taxing the rich. Now he wants to renege on his promise.

Obama showed his true colors in Kenya, when he supported Odinga. He supported an unsavory politician, and we have pictures of him doing it.

NASA

From Obama's speech:

    “Half a century ago, when the Soviets beat us into space with the launch of a satellite called Sputnik, we had no idea how we would beat them to the moon. The science wasn't even there yet. NASA didn't exist. But after investing in better research and education, we didn't just surpass the Soviets; we unleashed a wave of innovation that created new industries and millions of new jobs.”

So, what has Obama done to NASA?

Construction

From Obama’s speech:

    “So over the last two years, we've begun rebuilding for the 21st century, a project that has meant thousands of good jobs for the hard-hit construction industry. And tonight, I'm proposing that we redouble those efforts.”

Obama supported ACORN  for over a decade. ACORN supported risky mortgages. The housing industry was destroyed. Obama was involved in it’s destruction.

Constitution

From the speech:

    "We may have differences in policy, but we all believe in the rights enshrined in our Constitution."

These are only words. Watch how Obama acts. Did Obama take a swipe at the Supreme Court in the last address to Congress?

Conclusion

I have covered only a few things here. Obama's words do not match his actions.

Together We Thrive; "Fairly we share, together we prosper"

Odinga950737328_45bc11eedf

Obama is close to Odinga

"Together We Thrive" echoes Kenyan Odinga's slogan: "Fairly we share, together we prosper"

Together We Thrive; Obama.

Fairly we share, together we prosper; Odinga.

Who’s “together”? Early on Obama hitched his wagon to ACORN. Their combined efforts succeeded in getting risky mortgages for the “poor”. There was irrational exuberance among ACORN and Obama supporters. But, then came the “crash”.  Foreclosures came, and continue to this day. Are the “togetherers” still irrationally exuberant?

Obama supporters talked of “free rent” and “free gas” from Obama’s stash. That was only talk, it didn’t and hasn’t  happened. Do you remember Henrietta Hughes? She wanted freebies, but she was exposed. Do you remember the Detroit fiasco? People were in line to apply for $3000 of freebies. A few got freebies, but more of them didn’t. 3500 out of 65,000 got freebies. These people were all “together”. What has happened to their “togetherness”? Did they “thrive”, are they “ thriving” now? What happened to the irrational exuberance?

Does “together” include Reverend Wright, Bill Ayers, SEIU, Odinga, Van Jones, Louis Farrakhan, George Soros and all his “groups”, Jeff Immelt, moveon.org, media matters, the daily Kos, New York Times, and the Washington Post? Were the students in Tucson exuberant? Why? Were they exuberant about people being shot, or were they exuberant about getting a “free T shirt”? Were they whipped into exuberance by a cunning orator and his conniving minions?

Does “together” exclude Washington, Jefferson, Franklin, and Lincoln" or include just Odinga types?

I respectfully submit that the “togetherers” have not thrived under the Obama administration, and they will not thrive if Obama is reelected. 

Who is we? Is it Reverend Wright, Bill Ayers, SEIU, Odinga, Van Jones, Louis Farrakhan, George Soros and all his “groups”, Jeff Immelt, moveon.org, media matters, the daily Kos, New York Times, and the Washington Post? Is it the students at Tucson and young people elsewhere? Does it exclude Capitalists, Conservatives, and the “rich”?

Thriving has not happened. Prosperity has not happened. 

Hope and change has not brought prosperity.

Fairly we share; together we prosper, won’t either.

Together We Thrive; another slick slogan. Don’t be fooled; even if you get a free T shirt!

Certified Emission Reduction

Reagan3267328823_8a76034834_z
 
 
The Kyoto protocol passed in 1997 and took force in 2005. 184 countries committed to it; the United States didn’t ratify it.
The United Nations set up a system. Certified Emission Reduction credits were created. They are similar to a stock certificate, which can be bought and sold. Currently they sell for about $17. A refrigerant manufacturer in India reduces carbon emissions. A CER is created for each ton of carbon emissions it reduces. The same type of thing happens in China and other countries. A project is called a Clean Development Mechanism.
An electrical company in Scotland has purchased CER’s. I don’t know how many they purchased, but the cost will end up on their customer’s bills.
The UN estimates that as many as 2.9 Billion CERs will be created by 2012.
The foregoing is highly simplified. Go to this web page for more details.
The United States Congress voted against the Kyoto Protocol.
Obama likes the Kyoto Protocol.
So, after five years, has the Kyoto Protocol been effective? Has the melting of ice caps and rising of the ocean slowed?
Is Obama correct? Should we shiver in the winter, sweat in the summer, and pay high prices for everything? Will we suffer alone, or will Obama suffer with us?
Should we harm the coal mining industry, and eliminate their jobs?
There’s a railroad that operates out of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. I believe it’s the Bessemer and Lake Erie. It has been in operation for years. It hauls coal exclusively. Should the Bessemer and Lake Erie railroad be destroyed?
How do you vote?
Are you going to allow this to be shoved down your throat?

Carbon Emissions Reduction


$99

It’s time to examine carbon emissions reduction. Obama Jr. has been involved with carbon emissions reduction for years. Al Gore has also been involved. Obama Jr.’s buddy Soros is involved. The United Nations is involved, and the extent of their involvement is not common knowledge. The extent of Obama Jr.’s involvement is not common knowledge.
China and India are involved, and much of Europe is involved.
Why am I writing this? You are involved.
Your way of life is going to change as a result of carbon emissions reduction.
If the UN, Obama, Gore, and Democrats in the United States get their way, coal, natural gas, and carbon emitters will be taxed. The result will be higher electricity prices and higher food prices. There will be higher prices across the board.
Obama made an “in your face” statement. He said, “The cost of electricity will skyrocket”. His attitude seems to be hooray for me, and you are meaningless; it’s going to be my way, regardless of any hardship on you.
I’m dealing in generalities now, but specifics will come later.
Currently the Environmental Protection Agency is regulating emissions. They have taken over regulation of emissions in the State of Texas. Texas refused to implement EPA regulations. Fred Upton, a congressman, is investigating the EPA.  The Supreme Court has ruled that the EPA can regulate greenhouse gases. January 5, 2010, Obama appointed Nat Keohane, an ardent supporter of cap and trade, to the National Economic Council.

I’m planning on getting into the dollar amount of  the United Nation’s involvement in carbon emissions. I’m planning on getting into how long Obama has been involved with carbon credits; it’s a long time. I’m going to get into carbon credits being traded right now, and what they’re worth.
Are you willing to sacrifice for the benefit of the United Nations, Democrats, and Obama?

FEDERAL WORKERS EARNING DOUBLE THEIR PRIVATE COUNTERPARTS

USA TODAY2236441866_8838d4b525_z
SOURCE
USA Today
Updated 8/13/2010 10:53 AM
Federal Workers are receiving twice as much compensation as private sector employees.
One person told me that I was wrong. I may be wrong, but I don’t think USA Today was wrong, and I haven’t seen any rebuttal of USA Today’s article.
    "Federal civil servants earned average pay and benefits of $123,049 in 2009 while private workers made $61,051 in total compensation, according to the Bureau of Economic Analysis. The data are the latest available."

Read the link if you like, but the above quote sums up the whole argument.
The Bureau of Economic Analysis is a government agency.
    "Total compensation. Federal compensation has grown 36.9% since 2000 after adjusting for inflation, compared with 8.8% for private workers."
    There are comments on this article on Newsvine.

    Jobs Lost

    UAW287905374_d3cc0c3cc3_z

    An Example

    Ford closed a factory in Minnesota. 750 jobs were lost. The former employees have no vote to deny Ford anything. Ford has simply vetoed their power by moving the plant out of the country.
    The UAW no longer receives union dues or anything else from these workers. The UAW is deprived of funds from those workers to give to politicians, among other things.
    The USA no longer receives revenue due to the economic activity of those 750 workers at the Minnesota plant. The state and local government no longer receive revenue due to the economic activity of those 750 workers.
    Ford is in business to make a profit. Ford can make a profit by closing down plants in the USA and moving them out of the country. The flip side of that coin is; Ford can lose profits by acceding to the wishes and demands of the UAW.
    Ford is making a profit.
    Union supporters have been outsmarted.
