Since before the official beginning of the last presidential campaign, Mr. Obama seems to be enamored with the term “Middle Class”. I have often wondered just what his definition of “Middle Class” might be.
I have lived in several countries and many states of this country and at times I felt like I was just barely qualified as (lower) “middle class” with an income around one hundred thousand dollars a year and at other times I felt like I was at the high end of the middle class and almost into the upper class when making half that much.
So I decided to look up the dictionary definition of the term “middle class”.
I found two definitions:
1. a class of people intermediate between the classes of higher and lower social rank or standing; the social, economic, cultural class, having approximately average status, income, education, tastes, and the like.
2. the class traditionally intermediate between the aristocratic class and the laboring class.
The first definition is a definition that would be near and dear to the hearts of academians and politicians. It is a definition full of generalities and ambiguities like “higher and lower” and “approximately average”. That definitions provides unbound opportunities for intellectually banal banter. And it provides endless grist for the class warfare mill that the Obama administration never allows to rest.
The second definition is truly the definition that Mr. Obama has in his mind while he struts and strokes his mindless fawning followers - the class of people between the aristocratic class and the laboring class.
Put in slightly different but equally applicable terms:
Middle Class: The class of people caught between a hard place and a rock.
In Mr. Obama’s vision he keeps talking about “growing the middle class”; i.e. growing the number of people caught between the hard scrabble hand to mouth existence and the mill stone of the big government hung around their necks grinding them down and robbing them of the God Given Rights of Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness - and any and all hope for anything better for their offspring.
King Obama and his elitist robber barons share a vision in which every subject of the Royal House works exclusively to fund their vision of an idealogical nirvana - not unlike Karl Mark, Joseph Stalin, Adolph Hitler, Mao Zedong, and other such visionaries.
Americans were once viewed as a courageous and cockily self assured people.
Now Americans are viewed as a frightened, cowering bunch of sheep who are more concerned about losing their free cell phones than they are about losing the freedoms they once took for granted; the freedoms that are being eroded daily by the relentless malevolent assault by King Obama and his minions of darkness bent on snuffing out the light of freedom that once burned so brightly.
On every possible occasion, King Obama raises the specter of removing the heroin needle of government support for the old, the weak, and the Veterans who have given so much to defend an ideal that is sliding down the sewer pipe into the dark cesspool of history.
Never once does he suggest that we trim the billions upon billions in foreign aide that we dump into countries that are avowed enemies of our way of life and our freedoms.
Never once does he suggest that we shut down any of the nearly one hundred federal “training programs” whose only documented function and results is the hiring of more government employees.
The Democratic Party / Socialists / Progressives run a high intensity propaganda and public relations machine twenty four hours a day seven days a week.
The Republican / Conservative / Tea Party community runs a guppy school twenty four hours a day seven days a week. For those not familiar with the habits of guppies, they are the fish whose preferred diet is the eating of their own young.
The GOP attacks and consumes any candidate or effort not in strict accordance with the dictates of their Crony Capitalists Good Old Boy’s club.
The administration calls the Tea Party “Domestic Terrorists” and under fearless leadership of Karl Rove the Republican Elitists pursue the relentless attack on the Tea Party at every opportunity.
The Tea Party struggles for leadership, vision, and focus and spends most of its time jockeying for meaningless positions of temporary power in their local communities.
United We Stand.
Divided We Fall.
I have in the past and will continue to promote The Four Pillars of Freedom until such time as anyone can provide a better starting point, a more solid foundation upon which We The People can find the courage and selfless commitment to unite as a common people and once again stand together to restore our freedoms and our Constitution by whatever means necessary.
So it has been in the past and so it shall be forever in the future.
