More indications that we’ve taken the turnoff onto the road to serfdom.
First, Obama’s National Labor Relations Board has ordered a private company, Boeing, to build its planned new factory in unionized Washington rather than in right-to-work South Carolina. Is Obama’s goal the sort of trade union hell that characterized pre-Thatcher Britain? (And, yes, that’s a rhetorical question).
Secondly, Obama thinks that the typical rich guy is Scrooge McDuck, a cartoon capitalist who enjoys nothing so much as withdrawing to his private vault to wallow in his idle cash. Well, pardon me, Mr. Billion Dollar Candidate, but your hypocrisy’s showing. This is economic illiteracy on stilts, and I don’t want to ever hear again how “smart” and “intellectual” and “cerebral” this spindly, jug-headed dumbass is.
Finally, Obama’s now copping an O.J. Simpson attitude on gas prices. Just as O.J. claimed, after his trial, that he was going to dedicate the rest of his life to finding his wife’s real killer (a simple hand mirror would have sufficed), Obama, who has killed new offshore drilling (except in Brazil, of course), has instructed the Department of Justice to get to the bottom of these gasoline price hikes. Another chance to deflect attention from his own culpability, and demagogue the oil company executives.
And this guy’s approval level is still hovering in the mid-40s? Dang! Is Pogo right?
Typical wealthy American.
