Guess what? Maxine Waters thinks that because there are “roughly three million” blacks out of work the president in his speech should focus on what he’s going to do for “them”. This is typical behavior for the majority of the members of the “Black Caucus” ( wonder what would happen if there was an “evangelical caucus”, a hispanic caucus, a heterosexual caucus- sounds a little silly doesn’t it). The country should do something now, right now for blacks because THEY are suffering. Apparently they are the ONLY one’s suffering. So I have a few questions.
1. How many of these three million people are normally out of work? How many of them are unemployable due to criminal history, emotional damage or cultural inability? The fact that many of these people are low paid, unmarketable, inexperienced is never mentioned. They have little to no training or ability. They didn’t graduate from high school or if they did they didn’t learn anything of any use to them.
2. Why is it that a group of people who only make up 12.6 % of the population, take up 80% of our time and resources? Why is it that a community that demands so much of our attention can’t acknowledge it has fundamental problems with their citizens? Why is it that we don’t hold members of this community to the same standards that we hold everyone else? Adult men impregnating young girls, young children killing children- adults and anyone else, community leaders who use their positions to lie, cheat and steal from those they are supposed to be leading.
3. How dare you ask if one group of people are any more important than any other group? One of the reasons we are in this mess is because of people like Waters. The people who want Americans to spend their time and energy fighting with each other. That way we’re not paying attention to the ever expanding scope of government and the ever shrinking scope of liberty. This in ONE country, it’s people should be UNITED. That can’t happen as long as there are race baiters, religious zealots, cultural stormtroopers stirring the pot and the jackels that ravage the political landscape .
4. So then if blacks make up only 12.6 % of the population, it would seem the problems are supposed to be fixed by the other 85% of us . At least 9.5% of Americans are out of work. What about them? Are they any less needy? Do they count less? Do their children not need to eat, sleep, go to school? Many of those out of work have be paying all their lives for some citizens to sit on their fat butts and watch Jerry Springer or Oprah all day. No matter how you slice it the other 85% make up more in numbers than that 15%. There should be no difference between blacks, white, asian, hispanic, or any other group. 9.5% unemployment is unsustainable and inexcusable.
This president and his czars and supporters have in three years done what the Soviet Union tried for decades to do, and the American people helped them. Our supposed watchdogs in the press were bribed with sweets and turned into lap dogs just when we needed them most. Instead of truth we got propaganda. The smartest man in America has turned out to be at best an idiot at worst the most accomplished saboteur the U.S. has ever had the misfortune to come up against.
Unlike most people I believe Barak Obama has succeeded beyond his wildest dreams. He has pushed America to the brink of despair. The jury is out on whether or not she can be saved. He told us this is what he was going to do, remake America.
Am I the only one who listened?
