The Horse Sense Blog compares the nonsense in today's news with good ol' fashioned horse sense


“…I shall speak forth my sentiments freely and without reserve.… It is only in this way that we can hope to arrive at truth, and fulfill the great responsibility which we hold to God and our country. Should I keep back my opinions at such a time, through fear of giving offense, I should consider myself as guilty of treason towards my country, and of an act of disloyalty toward the Majesty of Heaven, which I revere above all earthly kings.” - Patrick Henry, March 23, 1775


"The further a society drifts from truth the more it will hate those who speak it." - George Orwell

President Obama, In Classic Alinsky Style, Continues To Mock The People Who Are Responsible For America’s Success


Here’s the Nonsense:  President Obama was right when he said that business owners didn’t build their business, somebody else did that.  Business owners take credit for success that isn’t theirs to take.

Here’s the Horse Sense:  President Obama was so far out of line in his disrespectful rant against business owners that he’ll be shocked at the outrage he’s caused.  He has bitten the hand that feeds America.

President Obama showed his true colors in a July 13th speech in Roanoke, VA.  His blasphemous attack on American businesspeople showed complete disdain for the very people who have done more for America than any other group of citizens.  His contempt for those who create jobs (the very ones who offer opportunity to America’s workers at a level far beyond any nation in history) was a look into the heart of a man who disrespects and shows disdain for those who are the backbone of what makes our economy sound.  This is a perfect example of what the influences of Barack Obama’s training in Saul Alinsky’s organizations has created in his attitudes towards America and what he believes our nation’s future should be.

Barack Obama has no understanding of business and how it has created the economic strength of America.  Sure, America is struggling financially in ways that no other nation ever has.  But those struggles are not due to American business.  Rather, they are due to uncontrolled spending and increasing debt brought on by politicians who are out of control.  The ONLY thing that has kept America going this long is American business.  And most American workers are working for small businesses.  Those businesses are the backbone of our nation and its greatness.

This is not to take anything away from the workers who work in businesses all across our nation.  They are a vital and important part of those businesses.  However, those who take the risks and invest their futures into businesses to make them work are the ones who are responsible for creating jobs. 

President Obama needs to learn a little history.  The fact is that the great American Industrial Revolution came about because of the free market capitalist system under which we’ve lived.  Never before in history has business had the opportunities that America’s system has allowed.  When businesspeople started to create new and innovative products along with new ways to manufacture them, we started to see mass production.  At that time many things changed forever.

When companies were able to produce more goods they needed more employees to do so and this created jobs.  Many people were able to get consistent work and move up to the newly created middle class.  That was something that had never happened before and improved the standard of living for millions of people.  And as people moved up into the middle class more and more of them were able to start saving money and not just live from day to day.  People were able to start their own businesses and as they succeeded they moved their standard of living up further and further. 

But Obama is a progressive. He is of the same school as many of today’s Democrats are.  In my new book, No Tomorrows: How To Halt America’s Imminent Collapse And Return To The American Dream – And Why It Must Start With The 2012 Elections,  I explain how Saul Alinsky influenced Barack Obama.  Alinsky’s book, Rules for Radicals, was said by Obama to be more important to him than anything he ever read or learned in school. 

Alinsky was a Marxist who believed in nonviolent overthrow of the government through methods including class warfare where they could create social unrest between workers and business management.  The division between them could drive the workers to support his cause and thrust them into power.   This would allow them to move the American system from capitalism to socialism.  And in their socialist society a limited few elite would make your life decisions for you.  They will control everything and you will no longer have the freedoms that are unique to America compared to any nation in world history.

President Obama has disdain for America.  His statement in Roanoke, VA shows no respect for those in our society that have gambled everything to make businesses survive and thrive.  Obama believes that the only reason businesses succeed is because of government, which is exactly the opposite of what happens in real life.  Government puts burdens on businesses that cause them to struggle to survive and often fail, thereby reducing jobs, not increasing them.  It is no surprise that President Obama’s comments are causing huge resentment among those in America to which we should be thankful for their business creation.  

Now it’s time to take that anger, resentment, and offended feelings and use them to drive us to work hard to change things in Washington this November.  Change is needed in the White House and Congress if we want to save this nation… and November can’t come soon enough.
