Can You Guess Which President Has Worst Record On ‘Income Inequality’?

 

 

 

 

 

 

” If Obama thinks he can pivot away from the failures of Obamacare towards the cause of relieving “income inequality,” he’s going to find even greater failures there already on the part of his administration.

  As the video above from Fox News shows, the vast majority of gains in wealth have gone to the top earners, making income inequality increase drastically under Obama. In fact, of the last three presidents, the income gap didn’t change overall during the Bush years, increased second most during Clinton’s time, and has increased the most with only 5 years under Obama’s belt.”

The Party Of The Rich Flogs Income Inequality

 

 

 

” Back when I was a kid, I used to think Republicans were the party of the rich — white guys who belonged to country clubs and drove Fleetwoods.  Of course, that was long before I heard of the likes of George Soros, Bill  Gates, Warren Buffet, Steve Jobs and Larry Ellison — white guys who fly Gulf Streams and have mansions in Gstaad.  (Well, Buffett lives a little more circumspectly.)  Or went to work in Hollywood, land of Jeff Katzenberg, David Geffen, Oprah Winfrey, etc. There’s rich and then there’s REALLY RICH, if you know what I mean.  And a fair number, maybe the majority, of the latter are Democrats and profess to be liberals or progressives or something.  (And there’s Fidel Castro, who is evidently a billionaire, and professes to be a communist.)

These days, when everybody’s insurance agent or accountant drives around in a Mercedes because interest rates are so low and why not, when it comes to true conspicuous consumption, when it comes to really being the true modern plutocrats, the Democrats are now the party of the rich — Sheldon Adelson excepted, of course.

So  when I watched the broadcast of the inauguration of New York City’s new mayor Bill de Blasio with all the talk of income equality and two New Yorks blablabla, all I could do is snort — that is after checking out the cut of the expensive topcoats on De Blasio and Bill Clinton. Good schmeck, I believe they used to call it  in the Garment District.”

Men Who Are Physically Strong Are More Likely To Have Right Wing Political Views

 

 

Right Wing

 

” Men who are physically strong are more likely to take a right wing political stance, while weaker men are inclined to support the welfare state, according to a new study.

Researchers discovered political motivations may have evolutionary links to physical strength.

Men’s upper-body strength predicts their political opinions on economic redistribution, according to the research.

The principal investigators – psychological scientists Michael Bang Petersen, of Aarhus University in Denmark, and Daniel Sznycer, of the University of California in the U.S., believe that the link may reflect psychological traits that evolved in response to our early ancestral environments and continue to influence behaviour today.

Professor Petersen said: ‘While many think of politics as a modern phenomenon, it has – in a sense – always been with our species.’

In the days of our early ancestors, decisions about the distribution of resources were not made in courthouses or legislative offices, but through shows of strength.

  • Weaker men more likely to support welfare state and wealth redistribution
  • Link may reflect psychological traits that evolved in our ancestors
  • Strength was a proxy for ability to defend or acquire resources
  • There is no link between women’s physical strength and political views”

  ” The ironic fate of the Community
Development Block Grant program”

“When Barack Obama ran for president in 2008,he vowed to pour resources into American cities
via the Community Development Block Grant program, a remnant of 1970s urban policy. Obama called CDBG an “important program” and praised it for providing housing and
“creating jobs for low- and moderate-income people and places.” How ironic, then, that
funding for CDBG has withered under President Obama. With the nation facing budget deficits as
far as the eye can see, we may finally be witnessing the collapse of a decades-old program that, despite the president’s faith in it,
is woefully ineffective.”

” The Book to Defeat Obama            Stanley Kurtz’s
Spreading the Wealth

” Obama, in true Alinskyite fashion, moves slowly from the ground up, to build redistributionist programs in a slow fashion, in order to prevent public opposition. Finally, in a brilliant chapter Kurtz titles “A Suburb of the Mind,” he shows how even in Obama’s own memoir, Dreams from My Father , the future president gave us much indication of his hostility to a middle-class
lifestyle and suburbia, and his preference to make policy exclusively on behalf of the urban
poor. When Obama funded projects through the Woods Fund in Chicago, he gave economic
support to his old community-organizer buddies and their new regionalist projects whose purpose, Kurtz writes, “was to run a class
warfare campaign of agitation designed to expose the suburban American dream as a product of racism and greed.” Then through tax redistribution, new urban growth boundaries, and low-income housing quotas, the suburbs would in reality cease to exist. “

The one person who publicly held Obama’s feet to the fire in 2008 could use your help . Perhaps he can bring a touch of honesty to DC . After all , ordinary citizens temporarily serving their country and then returning to their own PRODUCTIVE careers is what the Founders had in mind , not a permanent political class .
