When a War Criminal Comes to TownSubmitted by Marc Clair on Wed, 07/31/2013 - 14:06
Yesterday, President Barack Obama made a three hour stop in the Scenic City to read from a teleprompter in front of 2,000 adoring Amazon employees. The Reader-In-Chief reassured the economic illiterate masses that we’re still recovering from the “greatest recession since the Great Depression” and that, under his wise leadership, we’ve cleared away the rubble from the last financial crisis and laid the foundation for a better, brighter future.
“We’re not there yet,” said the Goldman Sachs frontman.
To people who casually observe politics and routinely absorb propaganda from the mainstream media, the President’s visit was a gift from God himself; regardless of your political affiliation, having a war criminal visit your city is “pretty cool.”
But to people who use this thing called the Internet to circumvent mainstream media and to educate themselves in economics and foreign policy, Obama’s speech-reading event was just another sad spectacle in these declining United States. The man with a secret kill list who spends $180,000 a day ignoring state medical marijuana laws spent roughly 30 minutes weaving emotional appeals in with interventionist economics. “Investments! Infrastructure! Raising the Minimum Wage! Pay no attention to the gun in the room, I’m from the government and I’m here to help.” If President Obama was really interested in helping the middle class he would get out of the way. He could also End the Fed, whose inflationary monetary policy destroys the middle class and transfers wealth to politically connected special interests. Since his campaign contributors are receiving $85 billion a month in QE-Infinity stimulus, a dismantling of the secretive central bank is unlikely to occur.
