Here Comes the Revenge

The President has run a winning campaign, and he will be in office for another 4 years.  His method of being reelected through fear, and by pitting one group of Americans against another will be damaging to our country for years to come.  His message of how successful people are playing by a different set of rules is unprecedented by someone occupying the office he holds.  Traditionally even liberal presidents have tried to inspire the American people to achieve rather than excusing them for their failure to do so.  The President of the United States combining this excuse with the claim that the game is rigged, is not only sad but dangerous.

Mr. Obama famously told his supporters in the closing days of the campaign that “voting is the best revenge”.  If you have watched the President for 4 years, you know that he has spent much of his time singling out particular groups for attack.  His rigged game mantra currently targets Oil Companies, Banks, Drug Makers, Coal, Insurance, Private Jets, and “The Wealthy” (defined as anyone who makes more than $250,000), which are all on the revenge list.  Another 4 years will surely expand this list to include others.  The most likely new candidates would be Natural Gas, junk food companies, or perhaps anyone who makes a profit.

Smith & Wesson stock shot up roughly 10% on the day after the election.  Many analysts think that this is because investors believe that gun sales will increase due to the concern about possible legislation to limit gun ownership.  Gun sales will increase, but it won’t be for worry that there will be gun control legislation.  It will occur due to the president’s rhetoric.  When you are at the bottom of the economic ladder, and your President tells you that people above you broke the rules, you may feel justified in “evening” things out.  It would not be a big leap for some of those at the bottom to decide not to wait for Mr. Obama’s redistribution.  They may choose to “redistribute” for themselves.  The President’s rhetoric has given tacit approval that successful people should be targets for retribution.  Those targets at the top of the economic ladder, would be foolish not to arm themselves.

Bono (from the band U2) once observed the difference between Ireland and America.  He said, “In the United States, you look at the guy that lives in the mansion on the hill, and you think, ‘You know, one day, if I work really hard, I could live in that mansion.’  In Ireland, people look up at the guy in the mansion on the hill and go, ‘One day, I’m going to get that bastard.’”  The President’s successful campaign and reelection has it showed that distinction to no longer be true.  All we are waiting for now is him telling us how he is going to “get that bastard”.

    Law-abiding Gun lovers – watch out.
    Students who grad without loans – watch out.
    Homeowners who pay their mortgages – watch out.
    Obama is not interested in you.

    Michael you did it again. This article says it all for us out here. REVENGE was that what the last four years was about? How far and how deep are Obama’s feelings for Revenge ?. Is Revenge part of him? Did we learn this because he didn’t have his tele prompter with him? How can he make America be the best version of herself? With Revenge? Is he a divided man? Morgan Freeman may have seen something America didn’t. Will Obama get Revenge on Obama for the bad economy. Obama needs to be told he is not Robin Hood he is the president of the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA..He has the opportunity to be great without REVENGE and REDISTRIBUTION, and America will be greater. On another subject…….did Hillary use an absentee ballot? Where is she? Does she know Petreaus resigned ?

    Mr. Goldberg, the ones who are going to redistribute our wealth, our American sovereignty is Fox News, Robert Murdoch, N.Y. Mayor Bloomberg and other Billionaires like them. What do you think, giving Amnesty to Millions of trespassing Illegal Aliens is doing? Our American sovereignty is being handed out to the world, those who have Not Earned it. This country has been created with the sacrifice of Americans fighting, bleeding and dying in every American War, since the birth of this Nation and now Fox News and it’s rich owner Robert Murdoch, is getting behind Amnesty for the mass of lawless trespassing Illegals, and increasing visas for Legal Immigrants, for all skill levels. Yet, we will see you to continue to support this outrage, by showing up on Fox News.

    We have listened to Sean Hannity supporting Amnesty, along with Robert Murdoch, Billionaire Mayor Bloomberg, Senator Chuck Schumer and Lindsey Graham. Disgusting and appalling, and they are doing this on the weekend before Veteran Days. You know, the day we celebrate 236 years of brave Americans dying for this country in our wars.

    Explain to the 23,000,000 American U.S. citizens unemployed or underemployed, the 47,000,000 Americans on food stamps, the American Veterans coming home from Afghanistan, who can’t find jobs, how adding 15,000,000 Illegal Aliens to our U.S. population and the Tens of Millions of their family members that will be added via chain migration, will help them. On top of all that, the rich corporate elites like Robert Murdoch and Mayor Bloomberg want to add Millions of additional Legal Immigrants, to steal our hard earned American U.S. sovereign wealth. Why? Because the rich are not those who have, done most of the bleeding and dying in our American Wars. It has been the American working poor, and working class and yes, mostly young white men. For all the so called racial diversity, why is it that 80% of all dead and wounded in Iraq and Afghanistan are white boys. The only place, we don’t hear the NAACP or LA RAZA complaining about lack of diversity.

    Illegal Aliens have done nothing for this country, but exploit what we have built.

    We will not help Fox news redistribute our wealth, our American sovereignty, to Illegal Aliens. We need to turn the channel. Fox News has not earned our loyalty. They have betrayed this country.

    Not only do Americans need a new government that represents them, but a new media.

      OH STOP!!! Blaming immigrants on the country’s woes. Immigrants are the backbone of this country and ALWAYS have been. They work without compliant and the need to be sheltered by BS Union rules and regs. Without the need or the ability of the government to hand out contracts and protection schemes.

      Wake up and realize if the 23,000,000 americans were willing to work as hard as those you demonize WE WOULDN’T HAVE A PROBLEM!!!

        You mean if Americans were willing to work for slave wages, like the Illegals? Yes, you want Americans to be the ones to work for cheap slave wages. Infact, you probably wouldn’t mind bringing back slavery, and making Americans the slaves. Americans go and apply for these jobs, but the corrupt employers say they are not hiring. Why? Because, they already have their willing Illegal Alien slaves. Veterans Day is tomorrow, honoring the American citizens who have done the hardest dangerous job for over 236 years, fighting and bleeding for this country. The job Illegals don’t have to do, but get to reap the benefits.

        You side with Illegals over American U.S. citizens. You are not an American. You are a traitor.

    This is true. When the government fears the people, this is Liberty, when the people fear the government, this is Tyranny. What we are experiencing is a slippery slope to toward Tyranny, What we are experiencing is soft tyranny, the tyranny of redistribution, disquised and wrapped in recycled gift paper and served with a 15 ounce soda (not 16, too dangerous).

    Frighteningly believable. Maybe our president is Irish. Should be spelled O’Bama.

  • Gradivus

    I wish I could tell you where you’re wrong in your analysis. I can’t.

    Hahahahaha, your rant is so ridiculous it’s funny. First of all, have you even ever watched Fox News or do you get your information about it from MSNBC or Media Matters or any of the other leftie outlets? By the way, FOX does have news from 9-4 pm and 6-8 pm every weekday, the rest is either talk shows or commentary. The rest is so stupid, I won’t even comment on it.

      Actually Partick I watch FOX every day. OK…..I don’t watch Fox and Friends. You have to admit that show is geared toward third graders. But when you start with Bill Hemmer and Martha, and then move on to Megan Kelly you’ve just watched what FOX calls real news, but if you listen close, every word out of their mouths come from the far right. Shep is great. He was great when we had him doing local down here in Florida so many years ago and he’s one of the best on television. Far better than any of the three Network anchors. The Five is basically four far right loons beating up on Bob and he does a pretty decent job holding them off. O’Reilly is as far right as Hannity but he gets away with it because he thinks by saying “I’m just here looking out for the folks”. That doesn’t make it. The rest of the evening should just be called “THE REPUBLICAN TELEVISION NETWORK”. I get some news from MSNBC, but more from FOX… If I didn’t get as much FOX as I could, t would not be fair of me to argue from the left. FOX allows me to do that. As for the rest of my post that you feel deserves no response…..that’s the part that’s going to make the Republican Party simply go away.
