Obama's 150 million points of blight

By Dave Weinbaum

http://www.JewishWorldReview.com | "Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning for a government check. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me so that I may pay their rent and buy their food on the taxpayer dole for the price of their vote." Originally written by Emma Lazarus in 1883 and mounted on the side of the Statue of Liberty in 1903

Millions of people looking to live the American dream walked by this missive, named The New Colossus. While I'm sure most couldn't translate it, just the symbolism of a bronze plaque on the liberty lass must have awed them.

Since I'm convinced it's a living message , I took a few liberties to change it to what I and many perceive to be the Mantra of Democrats in general and President Barack Hussein Obama's reelection campaign.

Ideas are king --- their sources commoners

This is how low progressive/liberals have sunk to: the theft of our freedom by giving checks to those willing to be a slave to a party with a proven wicked theology. Ironically, these same debilitating polices drove our ancestors to the USA.

Where shall Americans who still believe in the dream escape to under this totalitarianism? I say, it ain't over 'til they roll up the US flag and bury it with the now shredded Constitution.

Like the bottom feeders they are, Democrats fertilize their garden with glee, intentionally putting more and more on food stamps and welfare. Once trapped and addicted, they tell these slaves that if they vote in Republicans they'll lose their checks. Worse yet, they may be forced to -- dare I say -- look for a job.

Top Presidential advisor, Valerie Jarrett and ex-Speaker, Nancy Pelosi have the audacity to tell us that welfare spenders are a fabulous stimulant to an economy. Thus the welfare zombies kept in mental and economic chains, live and procreate without a shot at the real American dream.

I can hear Progressives screeching about now: "You're heartless and cruel, Weinbaum!" Well you can kiss my hairy Hobbit feet! What's cruel is to convince people not to hope, not to work, not to dream in return for what - the selfish quest for power and astonishing arrogance over your belief you are better than everyone?

Currently, taxpayers comprise 50.5% and non-taxpayers 49.5%. And it's trending toward the takers outnumbering the makers. When those on the take dictate policy to those who make, it's the beginning of the end-or in this case the end of the beginning.

It would have turned Tevye from Fiddler on the Roof /to move to Siberia from southern Russia, not Chicago. His song and dream would have summersaulted into this.

From If I Were a Rich Man by Jerry Bock and Sheldon Harnick


"Dear G0d, you made many, many rich people.
I realize, of course, that it's a shame to be rich.
and a terrible example in this country!
So, what would have been so terrible if I had lost small fortune?"

If I were a poor man,
Yubby dibby dibby dibby dibby dibby dibby dum.
All day long I'd biddy biddy bum.
If I were a welfare man.
I wouldn't have to work hard.
Ya ha deedle deedle, bubba bubba deedle deedle dum.

If I were a biddy biddy poor,
Idle-diddle-daidle-daidle man.

I'd buy a big tall house that I couldn't pay for,
Right in the middle of the town.
A retracting roof with indoor pool below.
There would be one long staircase just going up,
And one even longer coming down,
And one more leading nowhere, just for show.

I'd fill my yard with Harleys, Lincolns and Cadillacs
For the town to see and hear.
Rev the engines just as blaring as can be
Each motor roar, honk & thwack
Would land like a trumpet on the ear,
As if to say "Here lives a welfare man."

I'd see my wife, my Golde, looking like a poor man's wife
With an occupier's chip.
Demonstrating to her heart's delight.
I see her putting on hairs and strutting like a heifer
Oy, what a nasty mood she's in.
Campaigning for Democrats left and lefter.

The most Progressive men in town would come to fawn on me!
They would ask me to advise them,
If they were paying me enough yen,
"If you please, Reb Tevye..."
"Pardon me, Reb Tevye..."
Posing problems that would cross a politicians eyes.

And it won't make one bit of difference if I answer right or wrong.
When you're a welfare man they know they've got you by the schlong

If I were a poor man,
Yubby dibby dibby dibby dibby dibby dibby dum.
All day long I'd biddy biddy bum.
If I were a welfare man.
I wouldn't have to work hard.
Idle-diddle-daidle-daidle man.

Just as long as I back Dems, they wouldn't give a damn.

It's called the 2012 election. We need to stop 150 million Americans from dragging us with them into the abyss.
