It’s not relevant if Dictatorship and oppression is your goal…

If Liberals have to even ponder the question you know there’s trouble!

Independence Day provides all Americans with an opportunity to celebrate  the many freedoms that make our country both great and unique. Our Declaration of Independence  was breathtaking in scope and written in precise, plain, unequivocal  language. When read in townships across the Colonies, crowds listened in  hushed silence and then broke out in applause when the reading was complete. Our Founding Fathers felt no need to dilute or cloak their intentions to form a government.

As you celebrate the 4th, it might be appropriate to contrast the  straightforward language of our founders and other great American  leaders with the weasel words now emerging from Washington, and all too  frequently, from President Obama, who prefers euphemism-laden,  convoluted, pixilated flummery. 

A quick review of Obama’s speeches  reveals his most common euphemisms seem to show a pattern of deception,  obfuscation and misdirection. In President Obama’s lexicon, words have  different meanings; to decipher the message and understand what the  President is saying requires a special Washington Dictionary. Here are  some samples from President Obamas special dictionary: 

Investment is the president’s word for government spending.  When he says we need to invest more, he really means he wants to  increase spending on some special project. Obama knows that the word  investment is reassuring to most Americans and implies that at some  point in time a good investment will return a decent profit. But, no  return is envisioned with Obama’s “investments”. In fact, to Obama all  government spending is an investment.

Millionaires and Billionaires Obama often talks about the  need to increase taxes on the millionaires and billionaires. Of course,  what he really means is higher taxes on any family making more than  $250,000. Obamas math skills must be sufficient to understand that  there is a huge mathematical difference between 250,000 and a billion,  but he chooses to ignore the difference to better stoke class  resentment, all while hoping that average Americans are too stupid to  understand.

Working People is invoked to demonstrate commitment to average  Americans. Of course, what Obama really means is that he supports the  primacy of unions over other American workers.  According to Obamas  definition, the vast majority of Americans, including small business  owners, are not working people at all, regardless of how many thousands  of hours they work. In Obamas dictionary, only union members are  working people and deserving of special preferences and consideration. 

Spending Reductions in the Tax Code  means more tax increases. President Obama likes to wear the mantle of  spending cuts, but lacks the courage to call a tax increase what it  really is.

Paying Their Fair Share is the president’s phrase for wealth  redistribution. What Obama really means is that entrepreneurs and other  successful business owners are not paying high enough taxes, and that  all of the money they earn should be “contributed” to the government for  wealth redistribution to those that Obama considers worthy. Of course,  Obamas supporters, the bulk of whom do not seem to pay income tax, are,  according to this definition, already paying a fair amount of tax  (zero). It is the rest of America that is not paying their fair share.  Obama offers no criteria to what is fair or not, so that is why he  seems to think it is perfectly acceptable to require 20% of American to  pay 78% of the taxes and then criticize them for not paying their “fair  share”.

Green Jobs and Green Economy these are the jobs that President  Obama believes are more important and more valuable than any others,  even if creating a “green job” that pays $40,000 actually costs the  taxpayers $300,000 to create. Moreover, if creating one magical “green  job” results in the loss of 10 or more jobs that were dependent upon  cheap, reliable power, that too is of no consequence. A green job has  magical properties that do not conform to economic principles.

Unprecedented. Perhaps Obama’s favorite word, which he uses to  describe most of his actions. This word has no meaning to Obama, but  reflects his belief that he is so special that everything he does or  says must be admired. Obama is so, fundamentally, unaware of American  history that he thinks that the challenges and issues that he faces are  unique. (Move over George Washington!)

Unfortunately, our President seems unaware that the dangers of repeated,  euphemistic bastardization of the English language erodes his  credibility. Increasingly, Americans know they cannot trust what Obama  says. 

And so, President Obama is likely to tell Americans:

“In response to an unprecedented challenge we must provide more aid to working people by increasing investments in green jobs. We will implement savings in the tax code that will only impact millionaires and billionaires who are not currently paying their fair share“.     

And yet what Obama really means is:

My policies have failed. The stimulus was a disaster, and the country is  broke. We need more money to keep the Unions, and my special  constituents who pay very little or no taxes, happy, so I need everyone  else to pay more, otherwise I won’t get re-elected. 

Americans have a reputation for being straightforward and for plain  speaking and are only slowly becoming aware of the vague, expansive, and  misleading words in President Obama’s unique dictionary.  Our Founding  Fathers said: “we hold these truths to be self-evident”.  With Obama,  none of his words are self-evident.(Lurita Doan)

Except the deceit and dishonesty and complete disingenuousness that is not only self-evident, it’s self-serving.
