We all believe what we want to believe. In the case of science, PC activism and commielibbery lives the belief that global warming is man made (typically by those horrible rich people who do it knowingly and for money), a large number of scientists make this claim and do indeed back it up with evidence. Those who members of this crowd refer to as “science deniers”, listen instead to the large number, thousands, (now including NASA scientists) who claim it is not man made and support their, apparent, “non-science” with scientific and historical evidence. I’m not a scientist but what I’ve seen leads me to fall into the “science denier” crowd. Not being afflicted with hatred of the wealthy/successful allows me to reflect on the situational evidence independently of emotional disturbance and the situational evidence points quite convincingly at climactic changes far more dramatic than we’re seeing now, repeating over and over again from time periods far before those damn Republicans were scientifically sparked into existence.
There are those who look at Alinsky as a “red hearing” I think they mean red herring, nevertheless one who doesn’t see Alinsky’s “teaching” in the concept of bringing down the wealthy, hasn’t read Alinsky’s work. It’s not so much the actual bringing down of the wealthy that Alinsky promoted, nor that Obuma is working on, as it is the old communist adage that “derision would cause community audiences to laugh at their opponents, rather than listen to what their opponents were saying”, what Obuma is working on, quite successfully is division of the “classes”. Long before Barack Obama used the rallying cry of “Hope and Change,” Alinsky used the themes of “hope and change” as code words for creating a socialist revolution in the United States. Alinsky argued that the “have-nots” should seek their middle class allies among the young. The middle class being in his vision the surest source of true power. “The organizer dedicated to changing the life of a particular community must first rub raw the resentments of the people of the community; fan the latent hostilities of many of the people to the point of overt oppression,” (Alinsky) Alinsky believed his desired “change” could only occur by convincing the middle class to side with him in their own destruction. This is all just the tip of the popsicle, for a good chilling of the soul read about Alinsky and look at what’s going on, not only in America, but world wide. Alinsky is not the ultimate dog behind all this but he states the philosophy as clearly as any I’m aware of and was indeed responsible for the seeds of derision planted in Obuma.

The result of this take from the rich and give to the poor philosophy can be seen quite clearly here in America which since the advent of LBJ’s “Great Society” has quite successfully created a “permanent urban underclass plagued by teenage pregnancy, unwed mothers, children that drop out of school, and unemployable adults who have dropped out of the labor force. Magnificent!
“We can neither settle for a country where a shrinking number of people do really well while a growing number of Americans barely get by, or we can restore an economy where everyone gets a fair shot, and everyone does their fair share and everyone plays by the same set of rules …no american company should be able to avoid paying its fair share of taxes by moving jobs and profits overseas… in return, we need to change our tax code so that people like me, and an awful lot of members of Congress, pay our fair share of taxes… When Americans talk about folks like me paying my fair share of taxes, it’s not because they envy the rich. It’s because they understand that when I get a tax break I don’t need and the country can’t afford, it either adds to the deficit, or somebody else has to make up the difference, like a senior on a fixed income, or a student trying to get through school, or a family trying to make ends meet.” All said by the same man who administrated the largest increase in deficit BY FAR, in history, Barrack Hussein Obuma. And why? I wonder. Alinsky would be smiling.
There are those who choose from the vast number of wealthy, the few (Obuma cronie Warren Buffet for example) who do indeed take advantage of the government, effectively stealing billions of dollars, the bank bailouts, the auto industry bailouts, corporate welfare.. all programs pushed by the great far share Obuma, and hold these few up as typical examples of the wealthy. What they are is not “typical” what they are is criminal, just like the poor, underclass, African American who mugs the neighbor lady to pay for his meth, the student who refuses to pay off his school loan and on and on. The end of the tale is easily and clearly seen, in spite of the criminal element, the rich pay OVER 80% of the cost of our military, schools, parks… This is not a debatable claim it is an easily verifiable fact. It is a sad fact that those miserable greedy, rich motherfuckers are paying most of the bill.
Charitable contributions? Charity is in the mind of the giver, and even if the contributor is mislead by religious zealots, which many are, examples of public donation for truly worthy causes (much of which comes from those very religious zealots, in spite of those who funnel the contributions into business ventures of their own (criminal) are in incredibly large number and the majority of the contributors are from the “right”, since the “left” believes government should take care of it, so I don’t have to. And if I choose to travel the criminal road the government will protect me from retribution.
