In the history of mankind, many republics have risen, have flourished for a less or greater time, and then have fallen because their citizens lost the power of governing themselves and thereby of governing their state. TR


Obama: Race Relations “May Get Worse”

President Obama said that if economic prescriptions of the type he supports to increase economic growth and reduce “income inequality” are not adopted, then race relations in the United State may deteriorate further.

“If we don’t do anything, then growth will be slower than it should be. Unemployment will not go down as fast as it should. Income inequality will continue to rise,” Obama said in an interview published Sunday by the New York Times. “Racial tensions won’t get better; they may get worse, because people will feel as if they’ve got to compete with some other group to get scraps from a shrinking pot. If the economy is growing, everybody feels invested, ” he said.

Obama said Americans in recent decades have lost a sense of security, feeling that a chance at upward mobility is being denied them. He railed against the deficit hawks in the Republican Party, suggesting cuts were being made to quickly and without proper discretion, and that “vital investments” must be preserved.

The president in recent days has suggested he will back massive new spending outlays, including funding for vast programs like infrastructure projects and early childhood education.

Obama vowed to act unilaterally if Congress blocks him.

“I’m not just going to sit back if the only message from some of these folks is no on everything, and sit around and twiddle my thumbs for the next 1,200 days,” he said.

  1. A college education isn’t a necessity. I managed quite well without it and am enjoying a comfortable retirement. Learn a skill, work hard, do your job well, live prudently.

  2. Once again, our “president” hints to his minions that maybe they need to threaten violence to get their (in this case, his) way. So basically unless all the productive members of society don’t keep giving more and more of their own hard-earned money so that others can lounge around, these “others” will riot and get violent. Disgusting. If he wanted to be a real leader, he’d encourage people to get a job … and he’d lay off the excessive taxes and regulations that are keeping companies from hiring!

  3. Instead of giving out expensive handouts, go back to making the eligible ones look for work. The working stiffs have already had enough cuts in pay, no full time work and will be unable to sustain the lazy ones on welfare.

  4. What a racist thing to say, are we to believe that some groups of people CANT pick themselves up by the bootstraps and make it in this great country. Are we now saying that these groups of people are entitled to wealth because they cant achieve it own their own? I believe we are all afforded the same opportunity in this great nation. All groups of people should be encouraged to live the dream, not expect a handout from those that do. If I were a minority, as classified by Washington, I would be offended by the thought that our President had no faith in my community.

  5. Well now isn’t this a fine dish to set before the king! “racial tension may get worse…….” It’s his fekkin’ job to make sure this doesn’t happen and you can’t govern this country by “acting unilaterally”. These unilateral rulings coming from him are too many. He is not capable of leading this country where it needs to go.

  6. So what is Obama going to do? Stir the pot of racial tension even more? Is anyone else realizing that white people are now nearly in the minority – that other races will very soon outnumber whites? Then what happens to the handouts? And affirmative action? I don’t believe they’ll go to whites; they’ll probably be redirected to bigger government…

    1. OBama is not going to stop along with Sharpton, Jackson and the rest of the stink stirring bunch. I guess he will not be satisfied until he starts a race war. I believe he has that much evil in him to do just that. We need to find away to impeach him.

  8. And yet, here is Obama doing interviews, vacationing every month and doing stump speeches around the country, all the while Rome burns.
    Mr President. Get back to Washington and get back to work! He’s doing no one any good by just having the title of “President” hanging on the Oval Office door, while there is no one in the office!

  10. He is, again, speaking in Obamanese.
    Translated, it means, “If Congress doesn’t approve everyone of my doomed-to-fail, multi-trillion dollar ideas, that no one, in the US wants anyway, than I will do everything in my power to pit black citizens, against white citizens, against Hispanic citizens, in the hopes of starting full scale riots, which will give me an excuse to act as a true king should”.

    He loves to threaten people.
