"When stubborn inequalities still persist -- in education and health, in income and wealth -- I think those founders [of the NAACP. You really didn't think Michelle Obama would talk about THE Founders, did you ?] would urge us to increase our intensity, and to increase our discipline and our focus and keep fighting for a better future for our children and our grandchildren."--Michelle Evita Obama at the NAACP Conference.
The above is an illustration of the divide between We The People and They The Progressiveviks. We The People talk about providing the opportunity to become whatever you set your mind to, to reach out and grab that brass ring. They The Progressiveviks whine and toss around words like "inequality", which is shorthand for "We're just a bunch of damn losers looking for a handout."
See, what Evita Obama and her cronies at the National Association for the Advancement of Corrupt Progressiveviks (Let's face it, the NAACP no longer has anything to do with advancing anything but the Progressivevik agenda.) will never, ever understand is the fact that redistributing wealth doesn't create equality. It creates weakness. It creates crime. Above all, the redistribution of wealth creates...inequality.
A quick scan of our inner cities, trailer parks, and barrios will show that I'm right. In those places, you see generation after generation of welfare recipients. You don't see the drive to succeed in those places. Why ? There's no need to have any sort of drive. After all, the Big Mommy regime in Washington DC will give you food stamps, health care, a place to live, and enough pocket money to buy crack or meth. All you have to do in return for this "genorosity" is keep pushing out offspring faster than rabbits and stay out of the rich, white, MSNBC- watching neighborhoods. It's as if the American Dream has gone to our inner cities, our trailer parks, and our barrios to die.
Another place you'll see that I'm right is in the flourishing, LEGAL immigrant communities that can be found in every state. For example, my wife gets her nails done at a shop that's owned by a Vietnamese couple that's the salt of the earth. My boss at my it-pays-my-bills-unitl-I-strike-it-rich-as-a-writer-gig was born in Cuba. My favorite corner store that has the cheapest smokeless tobacco and beer in town is owned by a Palestinian immigrant. (Needless to say, we have had many entertaining political discussions over the years.) It's breathtaking to see these folks in action. They're proof that America works.
The Midterm Elections are upon us...Food stamps and an endless cycle of hopelessness or actual opportunity to do anything you want with your life. That's your choice America.
God help us all. It's come to this.
