THE FOLLOWING ARTICLE WAS ORIGINALLY PUBLISHED ON JULY 29, 2013 BUT PEOPLE NEED TO KEEP THEIR SOCIAL INSTITUTIONS RELEVANT AND RESPONSIVE TO THE COMMUNITY THEY SERVE. SO I AM REPUBLISHING IT ON THE FIRST DAY OF NEW YEAR 2015
My local newspaper donated it's Saturday, July 27th, 2013 editorial page to publish what President Barack H. Obama thinks is his prescription to help "THE MIDDLE CLASS." The Times Union, a Hearst paper proudly claims that Obama's office "offered this piece" exclusively for the paper in New York. I am sure every newspaper in the country has also received the same message - which is actually a summary of his rehabilitation message he started marketing around the country early this week. What a pity for himself and for the people of America, once a great country, but now drowning in debt - half of which is Obama debt!
I have a question for the publisher and the editors of Times Union, have you read the speech? Have you noticed any incongruity in his claims? How much of it is TRUE? He claims he saved the auto industry! He borrowed quite a few billion dollars from the Chinese and gave it to the UAW which squandered all the money that was supposed to be in the pension fund! How many Chrysler dealership employees lost their jobs when almost 900 dealerships were forced to close? Obama is against all forms of fossil fuels but he takes credit for all the natural gas produced by fracking on private lands! He refuses to bring in cheaper oil from Canada – talk about helping the middle class!
In fact it is the HEARST NEWSPAPER that failed to tell the American people what Obama, then a virtually unknown Illinois senator, had in store for Americans. Remember your interview with him in your San Francisco headquarters where he said "UNDER MY PLAN THE ENERGY PRICES WILL NECESSARILY SKYROCKET!" Did you ask him why? Did you tell him that energy is needed by every single soul in America and that his dream will wreck the lives of every American? As a newspaper protected by the First Amendment, it was your sacred duty to publish THE TRUTH! If you had, somebody else would have been occupying the White House.
Having worked in the healthcare system for more than thirty-eight years I take offense from anyone in America condemning our existing healthcare system as broken! There are 195 countries in the world and I challenge anyone in your editorial staff to show me a country where "the poor" get a better health care than in the United States. If it is broken those who are responsible are the law-makers, government bureaucracies, trial lawyers and last the American news industry which is no longer interested in telling the truth because truth is stranger than fiction.
And about Obama's Rx for "The Middle Class," who are the middle class? When any Democrat or even a few Republican politicians utter the word middle-class, we know there is another election coming!
In my next post I am going to write in detail about America's present class system! Here are they (1) The Super-top, (2) the Ruling Class, (3) the Bureau Class, (4) the Lap-dog Community and (5) The Vanishing Breed (formerly known as "the middle-class") - those who are clinging on to the Constitution and their God-given freedoms, working hard in the private sector, creating the products and services Americans need every day, extending a helping hand to those who need it, and are willing and determined to preserve, protect and defend the country from all enemies - foreign and domestic!
