Lou Holtz’s Explains America!

Lou Holtz has explained what Obama and the Democrats have done to divide Americans. This article is the most accurate and simple array of facts I have ever read. In fact it is so professionally presented even every live Democrat that can read can’t misunderstand what has happened. There is no doubt that the Democratic Party should be renamed the Socialists Party as that is exactly what they have become.

Sadly the poor, illegals, union members, welfare thieves and the dead follow Obama/Clinton and the elite Washington power brokers like the rats followed the Pied Piper. I would love to read how these people view this article because it is exactly what is happening. I wonder how many of these followers would vote for Democrats if they actually knew they were Socialist’s.   C. Brewer  7-25-16

The Democrats are right, there are two Americas. The America that works and the America that doesn’t. The America that contributes and the America that doesn’t. It’s not the haves and the have nots, it’s the dos and the don’ts. Some people do their duty as Americans, obey the law, support themselves, contribute to society and others don’t. That’s the divide in America.

It’s not about income inequality, it’s about civic irresponsibility. It’s about a political party that preaches hatred, greed and victimization in order to win elective office. It’s about a political party that loves power more than it loves its country.

That’s not invective, that’s truth, and it’s about time someone said it. The politics of envy was on proud display a couple weeks ago when President Obama pledged the rest of his term to fighting “income inequality.” He noted that some people make more than other people, that some people have higher incomes than others, and he says that’s not just. That is the rationale of thievery. The other guy has it, you want it, Obama will take it for you. Vote Democrat. That is the philosophy that produced Detroit.

It is the electoral philosophy that is destroying America. It conceals a fundamental deviation from American values and common sense because it ends up not benefiting the people who support it, but a betrayal.

The Democrats have not empowered their followers, they have enslaved them in a culture of dependence and entitlement, of victim-hood and anger instead of ability and hope. The president’s premise “that you reduce income inequality by debasing the successful“seeks to deny the successful the consequences of their choices and spare the unsuccessful the consequences of their choices. Because, by and large, income variations in society are a result of different choices leading to different consequences. Those who choose wisely and responsibly have a far greater likelihood of success, while those who choose foolishly and irresponsibly have a far greater likelihood of failure.

Success and failure usually manifest themselves in personal and family income. You choose to drop out of high school or to skip college and you are apt to have a different outcome than someone who gets a diploma and pushes on with purposeful education. You have your children out of wedlock and life is apt to take one course; you have them within a marriage and life is apt to take another course. Most often in life our destination is determined by the course we take.

My doctor, for example, makes far more than I do. There is significant income inequality between us. Our lives have had an inequality of outcome, but, our lives also have had an inequality of effort. While my doctor went to college and then devoted his young adulthood to medical school and residency, I got a job in a restaurant. He made a choice, I made a choice, and our choices led us to different outcomes. His outcome pays a lot better than mine. Does that mean he cheated and Barack Obama needs to take away his wealth? No, it means we are both free men in a free society where free choices lead to different outcomes.

It is not inequality Barack Obama intends to take away, it is freedom. The freedom to succeed, and the freedom to fail. There is no true option for success if there is no true option for failure. The pursuit of happiness means a whole lot less when you face the punitive hand of government if your pursuit brings you more happiness than the other guy. Even if the other guy sat on his arse and did nothing. Even if the other guy made a lifetime’s worth of asinine and short sighted decisions.

Barack Obama and the Democrats preach equality of outcome as a right, while completely ignoring inequality of effort. The simple Law of the Harvest “as ye sow, so shall ye reap“is sometimes applied as, “The harder you work, the more you get.”

Obama would turn that upside down. Those who achieve are to be punished as enemies of society and those who fail are to be rewarded as wards of society. Entitlement will replace effort as the key to upward mobility in American society if Barack Obama gets his way. He seeks a lowest common denominator society in which the government besieges the successful and productive to foster equality through mediocrity. He and his party speak of two Americas, and their grip on power is based on using the votes of one to sap the productivity of the other. America is not divided by the differences in our outcomes, it is divided by the differences in our efforts.

It is a false philosophy to say one man’s success comes about unavoidably as the result of another man’s victimization.

What Obama offered was not a solution, but a separatism. He fomented division and strife, pitted one set of Americans against another for his own political benefit. That’s what socialists offer. Marxist class warfare wrapped up with a bow. Two Americas, coming closer each day to proving the truth to Lincoln’s maxim that a house divided against itself cannot stand.

“Life is ten percent what happens to you and ninety percent how you respond to it.”

USA –THAILAND COMPARISONS!

President Obama and Secretary of State, John Kerry have blasted the military coup in Thailand as oppressive and unlawful. It did not take more than 10 minutes to make this announcement and announce all military aid for Thailand would be stopped. So far Congress has been rather mute, which is a surprise, as promoting this supposed crisis would take enough news time to stop the focus on killing America veterans with rationed healthcare.

Thailand’s military chief announced Thursday in a national address that the armed forces had taken control of the country after rival factions were unable to reach an agreement to govern.

My mind races to think about what if the US military had taken over our government in 2009 when rival factions began the race to eliminate all agreements to govern.

Would we have the nearly $18,000,000,000,000.00 in debt?

Would American be totally divided and hate each other?

Would the Supreme Court decide every issue based on politics rather than the Constitution?

Would we have Presidential Executive Orders that not only violate the Constitution, they also violate specific laws?

Would we have an Attorney General that openly defied Congress, was censured, and only prosecutes the law he decides need to be followed?

Would we have Obamacare this is an abominable failure?

Would we have a Senate that has not functioned and ignored the laws?

Would the four Americans killed in Benghazi still be alive?

Would the members of Congress and key government bureaucrats that openly ignore the law be in prison instead of in power?

Would we have thousands of people building the Keystone pipeline instead of drawing unemployment?

Would it have taken six years to discover the death panels that have killed so many veterans?

If anyone would like to add more to this abbreviated list, please send me your inputs. To be fair and balanced Obama did kill Osama with his bare hands.

Take a look at more facts about Thailand. On Tuesday May 20, 2014, the military declared martial law without consulting the country’s interim prime minister, who was serving in a caretaker status after former Prime Minister, also a caretaker — was ousted by Thailand’s Constitutional Court.

Martial law, which among other things includes restrictions on where protesters can gather, what TV and radio broadcasters can air and social media posts, according to the Bangkok Post. I would prefer to have our military control protest and decide what can be broadcast rather that Obama, Holder, Reid and Pelosi.

Thailand’s politics have been in turmoil for years, driven in large part by a schism between populists, many of them rural and poor, and a largely urban middle class and elite in Bangkok partial to the nation’s royal establishment.

This seems to be exactly what has happened in America except our Royal Class have elevated themselves without approval of the people.

Why should anyone except the Thai people worry about this?

In the business world Thailand is “Known as the ‘Detroit of the East.” Thailand has risen to become a vital manufacturing and assembly hub of hard-disk drives and automobiles for Japanese and Western companies.

The unrest and protests have already hurt Thailand’s economy and run the risk of making the country less attractive to investors and governments looking to strike up deals, analysts said. This sounds like a great description of what is happening in the USA.

A reputation for perpetual political unrest definitely hurts any countries competitiveness and attractiveness to foreign investment in the future. We seem to equal Thailand’s worries as our political unrest has increased for the last six years

I read a report that a stable Thailand is strategically important to the United States, both because of its status as a U.S. treaty ally and as an anchor for mainland Southeast Asia. The report stated that U.S. policymakers are faced with how to deal with an unraveling democracy. I wish they would be concerned with our own unraveling democracy.

Take a look at another recent coup our government agrees with. In February, Ukraine’s President claimed a coup had forced him from office, while lawmakers said they were following the will of the people when parliament voted to oust him and hold new elections. Our Congress is so divided, they can’t agree on what day it is much less stopping the rape of our Constitution.

In Thailand economic problems persist. Poor people remain poor. Poverty can’t be eradicated. Economic crises may be something that cannot be easily eradicated. Sounds like the USA to me.

There is always a relationship between the economy and political health. World Bank, has noted that “Thailand’s economic growth has been slowing down because of weak private consumption and investment demand, following political uncertainty”. They must ignore the same situations in the US and other countries. Why was The US credit rating lowered?

Corruption is common in many parts of the world, including Thailand. It has evolved into many different forms, some are not recognized by existing systems. We have recognized laws that are just ignored. We just ignore corruption unless you are a conservative.

Another Thailand issue is related to corruption and it is called cronyism or favoring one’s friends. Cronyism is common in Asia, as it is rooted in their cultural values. Who else would you help more, they may argue, if not your friends, relatives, and families? Is there one American alive that believes we have no cronyism culture in America? We have refined the process to make it legal.

I read that unemployment among Thai youths who have dreams, ambitions, and energy fosters unrest. There are not enough job opportunities for them to live normal lives. We have captured the art of pacifying unrest by using welfare, unemployment pay and creating hatred of successful Americans as a way to control our youth.

For anyone who has not traveled to Thailand and other South East Asian countries, they are all sick of political destruction of their lifestyles. Social programs do not exist in most of these countries which means if you are hungry you work for a living. Crime is a variable that is not the same in every country. One thing for sure they have no drug related usage problems. The military is responsible for the people’s safety and control the police if they get out of control. I had no concern for my safety in Indonesia, China, Thailand, Malaysia or Singapore in my many trips there. I fear being in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Houston and Detroit more than in Hong Kong, Bangkok, Batam or Singapore.

Maybe someday the American people will get sick of the tree hugging extremists, lying government bureaucrats, Progressive-Liberal Socialists, politically controlled Justice System and the morons they re-elect to pick their pockets and admit that countries like Thailand are no different than the USA and demand real change.
