Paean to Income Inequality?

This song, The Trees, by 1970s-era progressive rock band Rush describes a dispute between maples and oaks in an imaginary forest.  The maples resent the oaks for being taller, because, in the maples’ opinion, the oaks are hogging all the light.  The oaks don’t understand that point of view, because they’re only doing what comes naturally. The song ends thusly:

… So the maples formed a union
And demanded equal rights
‘The oaks are just too greedy
We will make them give us light’
Now there’s no more oak oppression
For they passed a noble law
And the trees are all kept equal
By hatchet, axe and saw.

Who Wants Income Equality? Do You?

minuteman - Copy

While arguing for a large increase in the minimum wage, Barack Obama recently said:

Across the developed world, inequality has increased. … But this increasing inequality is most pronounced in our country, and it challenges the very essence of who we are as a people.

Obama called this perceived need to address the allegedly growing income inequality as the

defining challenge of our time.

We know Obama only too well, and so we also know that the challenge, in Obama’s reasoning, is how to impose communism, redistribution, and income equality on nearly everyone in the USA (with the elite like himself excepted).

Obamacare: Take Your Medicine, and Like It! (Open Thread)

Yucky_Medicine - Copy

Tomorrow the Obamacare exchanges are supposed to open for business.  Whether they will function or not is yet to be seen.  Word is that the software has glitches (see here, also) and is vulnerable to determined hackers and identity thieves.  All the crack software developers are probably working for Barack Obama’s spying NSA, so it’s likely that software development for Obamacare was farmed out to well-connected progressive friends of Obama’s–like ACORN community organizers, “minority” contractors, and former hackers who quickly created startups with a little help from the taxpayers via the Stimulus.

Like this president, prior experience and a record of accomplishments not required. Continue reading

Requiem for a Twinkie (Open Thread)

Thanks to greedy union members, 18,500 employees of Hostess will now be out of work.   We the People might have to say goodbye to those delicious treats that so many of us have learned to love.

Gone will be Twinkies. Gone will be Hostess cupcakes.

No more Ding Dongs.  No more Ho Hos.

Gone, too, will be Wonder Bread, the bread that most of us grew up eating.

Let the Debate Begin: Obama Communism or Romney Capitalism? (Open Thread)

Tonight will be the first of three debates between Barack Hussein Obama II and his challenger for the U.S. presidency, Willard Mitt Romney. Will this or any of the other debates actually touch upon the most important issue in this election? With the liberal media controlling the questions (possibly in collusion with the White House), it’s highly unlikely.  What is the greatest issue facing our nation?

Media Mendacity and Obama’s Communist/Redistributionist Ideology

This morning, if you searched Google for news (their news tab), what came up were all stories about Romney and the “47%,” even though the story is days old.  This article is featured, which praises Mother Jones’s “reporter” David Corn for his “scoop”. Here’s all you need to know about him and his scoop [emphasis added]:

Corn, a liberal commentator on MSNBC, got a major assist from a freelance researcher, James Carter IV, who first found the snippet on YouTube. Carter suggested to Corn that there might be more in the full video held by the source. Carter, the grandson of the 39th president, also alerted the Huffington Post that a longer video might exist.

What’s not “news”, according to Google, is Barack Obama’s very revealing tape about redistribution. No! Of course that’s not news. Continue reading

U.N. Stealth Treaty to Gut Our Second Amendment? (Open Thread)

If Operation Fast and Furious (OFF) has taught us anything, it’s that the progressives in this country (especially Barack Hussein Obama II, Hillary Clinton, and Eric Holder) will go to great lengths to invent “facts” to use to continue to chip away at our Second Amendment rights.  Many have credibly argued that OFF was designed not to stop guns from flowing across the border to Mexican drug cartels, but rather to inflate the numbers and “prove” by lying statistics that over 90% of the guns recovered in Mexico were trafficked illegally from the United States.  The goal was to gin up an astroturfed groundswell of bogus public opinion in favor of more government control over guns.  Continue reading

Is Obama Springing a Communist Surprise Come November?

In an article recommended by Bridgette, Ion Mihai Pacepa warns about what is happening to our country [emphasis added]:

History usually repeats itself, and if you have lived two lives, as I have done, you have a good chance of seeing that re-enactment with your own eyes. In 1978, I paid with two death sentences from my native Romania for helping her people rid themselves of their Marxist dictatorship, carefully disguised as socialism. Continue reading

Obamacare: The Foot in the Door for Communism

Soon the Supreme Court will hand down its decision on the constitutionality of Obamacare. Their decision is crucial for our future as a Republic as well as for the next election, which might be our last chance to roll back Obamacare and the rest of the “fundamental transformation of America” that Obama wants.

Obamacare is designed to funnel everyone into one system, where unelected bureaucrats will decide what kind of care you get.

And what kind of care you can’t and won’t get.

 Has Our Nation Come to This?

Obama, Stalin, and Hitler

What do these three have in common?

Following are excerpts from an article appearing at Right Side News.   The examples following each of the signs are removed so you can read them for yourself.  Although as we look at these signs, we could add more examples of the treachery we have observed within our government than just those found in the full article.  It is frightening indeed when we see such a list, and its full force will be felt by reading it in its entirety.
