Well we’re living in Obamatown
Tax and borrowing bring everyone down
We make goods and services we need
They make almost none, just consume and impede

He gave trillions to execs on Wall Street
Took that two trillion from you and me
They get bonuses and lobby the Hill
Change all the laws, small business is killed
And we’re living in Obamatown

Bureaucratic regs are being handed down
And they’re getting very hard to pay-ay-aayyy

Yeaaaahhhh Oh-woah oh

Had a friend who started up a small firm
But the State taxed away all that he earned
And it took away four full time jobs
He had to fold, pink slips and sobs

She’s a single mom who works day and night
With three daughters 40K’s very tight
But they took her health insurance away
She pays twice as much, under the ACA
And we’re waiting in Obamatown

With the threats of Holder pushing us down
And the moderate GOP crawl his way-ay-aayy

Yeaaaahhhh Oh-woah oh

Everybody had a pretty good shot
To get at least as far as their old man got
But something’s happening on the way to that place
They’re throwing a Communist Flag in our face

Well we’re living in Obamatown
And its hard to keep a good man down
But they’re taking oh so much away-ay-aayy

Headline today:  REPORT: Judge Who Sentenced Saddam Hussein to Death – Captured & Executed by ISIS

This is what happens to the rule of law under a President who tells outright lies to get reelected.  If people had looked beyond “you can keep your doctor”, and gas prices mysteriously going down 50 cents per gallon in “battleground states” in the months leading up to the election, they would have seen things the President has said that are true – that he wants to “fundamentally transform America” (and he’s well on his way), that he says he carries the “dreams of my father” (his father was a sold-out, vocal Kenyan national socialist) and that he hired a man to be energy secretary who three months earlier had said, “we have to figure out how to boost the price of gasoline to the levels in Europe.”  Well, Chu’s dreams of gas prices being the levels of Europe are now well on their way.  But the cost of our President’s desire to humble and lower the United States in the view of the world has been loss of the rule of law, both here and elsewhere.

I can’t express how ghastly the above headline feels.  What a step backwards.  Saddam Husein came to power through mass executions, the same type happening now as Iraq is being allowed to fall into the hands of radicals Islamists.  If you have any question what kind of people these are just bing “Saddam throwing people from rooftops”.  I’ve seen the videos.  This is pure evil.  The President’s attitude seems to be, “Well, this demostrates a failure for Republicans, and we should respect all Muslims, and the U.S. shouldn’t be a colonial power like Britain was in Kenya.”.

Seriously, can anyone offer any other explanation?

It’s sick.

Something we observed starkly in the past century is that the fruits of collectivism are ~always~ poverty, want, and gross inequality between the “planners” and the “masses”. In the early 90’s everyone remembered the example of East vs. West Germany. Today it seems like hardly anyone does. North Korea and South Korea provide an example today, and they are hardly ever presented in terms of the fruits of collectivism vs. the fruits of individualism.

Arguably California, Michigan, Illinois and New York contain today’s examples of the farthest governments have gone towards collectivism in the U.S. and the examples are not pretty. Detroit, a town which hasn’t had a Republican mayor since 1961 and which has been politically ruled by the labor union the UAW, has fallen into decline even though the past two Presidential administrations have given billions of taxpayer dollars in corporate welfare to reward businesses which should have failed naturally and/or been restructured.

Look at these pictures of some sections of Detroit. Look through all five pages of the blog.


THIS is the fruit of following collectivism. With no choices and diminishing resources most people resolve to wanting to be rewarded for failing or unproductive behavior and many want someone else to do the work. Goods and services are consumed by government and union employees and by people receiving wealth redistribution, and none of these three groups is producing goods and services that society can consume in turn. It is a net drag on the economy and impoverishes everyone. And it’s reaching a tipping point in some governments across the U.S., especially with national debt now at $55,000 per ~individual~ in the U.S. And progressives in Congress and the various states show no sign of stopping the unsustainable behavior.

Don’t let progressives turn our nation into a large version of Detroit.
