MLK Would Be Ashamed And Other Tidbits

This week we celebrated the life of Martin Luther King Jr, a man who fought for civil rights and equality, a man who said people should be judged by the content of their character and not the color of their skin. King would be very disappointed in the way things turned out.

In the decades since King fought for equality the federal government has made the black population slaves to its programs. The Democrat party in particular has enslaved the blacks by assuming they are unable to make it in life without some kind of government assistance. Social welfare programs have broken the black family apart so much so that nearly three quarters of black families lack a father figure. Blacks vote Democrat at about a 90% rate because they are now addicted to the government teat and the programs offered by Democrats to keep them in their places only allowing them to come out long enough to vote Democrat every few years. Then they are ignored until the next election being placated along the way with scraps from the Democrat’s table.

Allen West, a black conservative Republican, does not like how things are going and he has warned Democrats (particularly Obama) not to use the overplayed race card. West said that Dr. King would be devastated by how Obama deals with race issues. Certainly king would not like the attitudes of the Obamas, Eric Holder and the Democrat members of the Congressional Black Caucus and the way they act. King would be particularly devastated by the way the black population has allowed itself to be, once again, enslaved.

Perhaps King is looking down and expressing his displeasure. The eternal (as in, never ending) flame at his tomb was referred to during a news cast and as the camera panned to it, the flame went out. That pretty much sums up how Democrats have tarnished the King legacy.

In other news, Greece will soon default. The people in Greece pressed for more and more government services while they paid fewer and fewer taxes. Their Socialist scheme hit a bump when they ran out of other people’s money. They even ran out of the money they borrowed from even more people. The United States is running the same risk as Democrats insist on more and more welfare to enslave more of the population. They will not be happy until they have us all locked on the same plantation they have been keeping the majority of the blacks in this country.

They scream about the rich paying more in taxes while 50% of wage earners pay no federal taxes. The upper 50% is expected to pay even more to support the bottom half. If the rich are not paying their fair share then the bottom 50% are really in debt to the country. They are not paying any share.

Unfortunately, people keep begging for more “free” money from government to satisfy their addiction to OPP (Other People’s Property) and they will not stop until we are defaulting like Greece (if that is even able to stop them).

Social Welfare programs account for the largest part of our budget (much more so than the defense budget) and those programs continue to grow and cost even more. We are in debt to the tune of 15 TRILLION dollars and we have no hope of ever getting that under control. The debt was about 10 TRILLION when Obama took office and he has added 5 TRILLION in just three years. This money is being borrowed in order to pay our bills. This is no way to run a country as Greece well knows. It is an example we should learn from but do not.

Obama insists on failed Keynesian economics. That principle has never worked and never will but Obama keeps with it while spending us into oblivion.

How long will it be before the eternal flame of freedom in this country dies in the night like the flame on MLK’s tomb?

Cave canem!
Never surrender, never submit.

    You ask a good question there BD. It is flickering and in need of air. I don’t think it is going to get it this time around in Nov. because I don’t see anyone in this race who is serious or takes this thing seriously enough. I hope this author is wrong but unfortunately probably not. We’ll see.
    No Matter What
    By Dr. Walter Williams
    Can President Obama be defeated in 2012? No. He can’t.. I am going on record as saying that President Barak Obama will win a second term.
    The media won’t tell you this because a good election campaign means hundreds of millions (or in Obama’s case billions) of dollars to them in advertising.
    But the truth is, there simply are no conditions under which Barak Obama can be defeated in 2012.
    The quality of the Republican candidate doesn’t matter. Obama gets reelected.
    Nine percent unemployment? No problem. Obama will win.
    Gas prices moving toward five dollars a gallon? He still wins.
    The economy soars or goes into the gutter. Obama wins.
    War in the Middle East ? He wins a second term.
    America’s role as the leading Superpower disappears? Hurrah for Barak Obama!
    The U.S. government rushes toward bankruptcy, the dollar continues to sink on world markets and the price of daily goods and services soars due to inflation fueled by Obama’s extraordinary deficit spending?
    Obama wins handily.
    You are crazy Williams. Don’t you understand how volatile politics can be when overall economic, government, and world conditions are declining? Sure I do.
    And that’s why I know Obama will win. The American people are notoriously ignorant of economics. And economics is the key to why Obama should be defeated.
    Even when Obama’s policies lead the nation to final ruin, the majority of the American people are going to believe the bait-and-switch tactics Obama and his supporters in the media will use to explain why it isn’t his fault. After all, things were much worse than understood when he took office.
    Obama’s reelection is really a very, very simple math problem. Consider the following:
    1) Blacks will vote for Obama blindly. Period. Doesn’t matter what he does. It’s a race thing. He’s one of us,
    2) College educated women will vote for Obama. Though they will be offended by this, they swoon at his oratory. It’s really not more complex than that,
    3) Liberals will vote for Obama. He is their great hope,
    4) Democrats will vote for Obama. He is the leader of their party and his coat tails will carry them to victory nationwide,
    5) Hispanics will vote for Obama. He is the path to citizenship for those who are illegal and Hispanic leaders recognize the political clout they carry in the Democratic Party,
    6) Union members will vote overwhelmingly for Obama. He is their key to money and power in business, state and local politics,
    7) Big Business will support Obama. They already have. He has almost $1 Billion dollars in his reelection purse gained largely from his connections with Big Business and is gaining more every day. Big Business loves Obama because he gives them access to taxpayer money so long as they support his social and political agenda,
    8) The media love him. They may attack the people who work for him, but they love him. After all, to not love him would be racist,
    9) Most other minorities and special interest groups will vote for him. Oddly, the overwhelming majority of Jews and Muslims will support him because they won’t vote Republican. American Indians will support him. Obviously homosexuals tend to vote Democratic. And lastly,
    10) Approximately half of independents will vote for Obama. And he doesn’t need anywhere near that number because he has all of the groups previously mentioned.
    The President will win an overwhelming victory in 2012.

    — Dr. Walter Williams

    IN ADDITION TO THE VOTING BLOCKS HE MENTIONS THERE IS ANOTHER HUGE GROUP: THE NEARLY ONE-HALF OF ALL ADULTS WHO DO NOT PAY ANY TAXES AND, IN FACT, MOST OF THEM RECEIVE MONEY FROM THE GOVERNMENT. THESE PEOPLE DO NOT WANT TO “SHAKE THE BOAT” TO DO ANYTHING TO STOP THE FLOW OF TAXPAYER MONEY TO THEMSELVES.

      The Democrats got what they wanted. People so dependent on them that they will vote for them at all costs. I am not sure Williams is right that Obama will be reelected but he is right about one thing. Most Americans are ignorant when it comes to economics and most college educated women vote with their lusts instead of their brains. Think Bill Clinton…

    BHO will be difficult to beat, as the progressives will pull out all the stops in order that their boy gets back in- they will do WHATEVER IT TAKES, up to and including outright voter intimidation wherever they can, just so he is back in the WH- a conservative would spell certain death for their progressive agenda.
