Barry has no respect for employer/customers

By Dave Weinbaum

http://www.JewishWorldReview.com | A funny thing may happen this November. Obama and Dem demonized American taxpayers will realize that they are both bosses and customers of our kings and queens (sorry Barney). Unless something happens between now and the election the preached-against will have the power to fire those hired in previous elections.

Anyone paying income taxes must be aghast at how their money is spent, both on the economy and as salaries to those elected and appointed public servants. From the red ink of green tech, to the revelers at the GSA convention of the wickedly stupid, to our Secret Service of Columbian hookers, our employees on top have taken on a corrupt and solicitous attitude to their employers— us.

They'll also realize that with no action from congressional Dems and the President to Republican House Bills already passed, the Bush tax cuts will expire. That'll bring the largest tax increase in memory to the already bludgeoned middle class. What's gone on in the Obama regime is beyond the pale of normal ying and yang for power amongst the branches. Obama's once stealth attack has turned into an all-out frontal war on American values and it's Constitution. He's executing the agenda of Reverend Wright, George Soros, Bill Ayers, Father Pflager and Louis Farrakhan; the puppet holders to President Barack Hussein Obama.

Policies are king — their sources commoners

It doesn't have to be this way. My introduction of my former lawyer and then MO Supreme Court Chief Justice, Duane Benton to a group of citizens, reminded me that some public servants get it.

Upon giving Judge Benton the floor, he grabbed the mike from its pedestal, jumped down from the stage and stood amongst the common folk cajoling them with stories of him socializing with citizens in his courtroom V sitting in his sequestered quarters beyond where no one is allowed to wander about without permission.

Someone in the audience asked the inevitable. "Judge, why do you go out and do what no other jurists do -- go forth and talk to us peasants?"

"Because," he said, "just like Weinbaum in his business and you in yours, those who are paying for your goods and services are customers and it's important to spend time appreciating their contribution to your livelihoods. You might even get some ideas on how to take care of them even better. That way they may go to the competition less and to you more."

Too many of our public servants run as underdogs with populist issues--then dictate to us as if they're Caesars for life upon election. Some even run on such benign cliches as "Hope and Change."

Such is the sad story of our current President, Barack Obama.

Is there any doubt that he sees us as the unwashed masses, easily connived by hate speech? Does he not point fingers at straw men and red herrings to awaken his waning base? Does he think the majority will buy into Marxist arguments as the best solution for us when the facts of Socialist governance belie the graveyards of governments all over Europe and Asia? Does Barack believe that we are so stupid that we can't decipher the failures of his own misbegotten policies?

Sadly, the answer is "Yes he does." So do all of his liberal progressive ilk, feigning intellect to dominate us by bald-faced lies.

As leader of the Democratic Party, that attitude resonates in the hopefully soon-to-be- extinct likes of Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, Debbie Wasserman-Schultz and the rest of the snoots in the Dem caucus. Like a herd of water buffalo beset by a pride of lions, Dem brethren are beginning to panic enough to fragment by kvetching against Barry's failed policies. About 70 Dem House members voted against Obama and with Republicans on the Keystone Pipeline, or as even Bransonites call it: The No-Brainer.

Barney Frank is amongst the growing crescendo of whining Democrats against the unpopular and maybe soon to be declared unconstitutional Obamacare.

While the Dem controlled Senate remains a graveyard for over 60 Republican sponsored House bills and budgets, it could soon be erecting a headstone for former Democratic legislators.

The customer may not be always right, but he still can exercise his right to vote. This may make the 2010 election look like a winner for the Dems, when they at least maintained the Senate and White House.

I'm looking forward to the day after the 2012 election when the Donald can get his snarky self up to resonate these words: "Obama and Democrat Congressmen — YOU'RE FIRED!"
