An Exchange with a Friend

I haven't posted for a while for a variety of reasons. Most importantly I have a job, a home to take care of & a family. I do have a hard time getting extra time on the computer.

I am pretty disgusted over the election of The One. Not over the man, the people that were just following blindly are idiots. Yesterday at work I got into a discussion with a Mexican immigrant, a former border jumper who became nationalized under the great Clinton giveaway. He grew up in the slums of Mexico City, so I really don't blame him for running to El Norte. An Obama supporter, I ask him why?

Obama's for change

Change is good, we need that in DC. So why did you vote for the same old thing?

Huh, He's going to change how everything is done in politics in this country.

Okay, His VP choice has been a Washington insider, entrenched for 36yrs, all of his picks so far are career politicians whose sole goal in life is to make over this country to suit them, NOT to follow the Constitution, the written laws we live and govern by. He has promised to spend trillions of dollars we don't have.

He's going to get it from the rich people.

The rich don't pay taxes. They pay millions to lawyers and accountants to keep from paying taxes. You heard Warren Buffet say "My secretary pays more income tax than I do. There's something wrong with that."

Well, He's going to make it where everybody is equal.

Everybody is equal now. A man made $1.2mil by putting a rock in a box. Al Gore made millions telling people they are affecting weather patterns. If you have the knowledge and the drive the possibilities are endless in this country. Your Messiah wants to take that opportunity away from you. He wants you to again be that peon you were in the slums of Mexico City.

He does not. (very irate now) He is FOR the middle class and the poor.

Raphael, did you not listen to a word he said?

His supporters still don't really know what Obama is about. They probably don't care either, they just want change, whatever that means.

Steve, you might as well just have a conversation with a brick wall. Yes, all Obama is going to do is to take more money from the productive and the rich will go on comfortable and safe. But nobody in the camp of mass hysteria is listening to reason.

MK, I have a hard time understanding what they voted for. An even harder time listening to them try to justify their choice as the days go on.

Aurora, Iknow in my heart that you are right. This is a bad man. I don't think he started out that way but as the millions poured in the debt began to grow. I wonder what will happen when it's time to pay the fiddler.

Now, they're starting to compare B Hussein to Abraham Lincoln!

Now, I think a lot less of Lincoln than do most folks (propagandized in the children's prisons), so I'll have to give this some thought. I wonder if B Hussein will cause the deaths of 600,000 Americans.
