If Obama Wins, It’s Payback Time

with 3 comments

Barack Obama, Democrat aka socialist candidate for president, believes in reparations. Centuries of redress, civil rights movement, and affirmative action policies that have pushed African-Americans to higher employment, education, and financial status, including more African-Americans owning homes and businesses than ever before in history. Despite those actions and policies, Obama feels that reparations are in order to repay blacks for their suffering and poverty in today’s society.

Who will pay for reparations? The middle class taxpayer. You.

What does Obama want to put into action, deeds, policies?

His book and Web site outline a separate plan calling for essentially a government bailout of the inner cities. Among other things, he proposes:

• Doling out faith-based grants “targeting ex-offenders.”

• Subsidizing supermarket chains that relocate to the inner city to deliver “fresh produce” to blacks, helping wean them off unhealthy fast food.

• Imposing “goals and timetables for minority hiring” on large corporations whose work forces are deemed too white.

• Continuing to fund the Community Development Block Grant program, Head Start and HUD public housing subsidies.

• Funding Small Business Administration loans for minority businesses who train ex-felons, including gangbangers, for the “green jobs” of the future, such as installing extra insulation in homes.

• Doubling the funding for federal after-school programs such as midnight basketball.

• Subsidizing job training, day care, transportation for inner-city poor, as well as doubling the funding of the federal Jobs Access and Reverse Commute program.

• Expanding the eligibility of the earned income tax credit to include more poor, and indexing it to inflation.

• Adopting entire inner-city neighborhoods as wards of the federal government.

• Spending billions on new inner-city employment programs, including prison-to-work programs.

This is just a down payment on the “economic justice” Obama has promised the NAACP — financed by “tax laws that restore some balance to the distribution of the nation’s wealth,” he says in his book.

President Obama will create a socialist government with the impoverished, welfare recipients, ex-convicts, and illegals benefitting at the taxpayers’ expense. He owes that much to the community of black churches and organizations, along with the guilt-ridden MSM’s and Caucasian liberals that has propelled him into starlight and celebrity status. He won’t forget his fans.

  1. Reparations? First subtract the cost of social safety net programs and law enforcement aimed at Blacks and lets see what’s left. Am I a racist? no, but one stupid idea can only be answered with another.

  2. Reparations? Enough is enough! Only in America can someone preach this nonesense and get away with it without so much as a whisper from the media for fear of being labeled a racist!! To cut to the chase we are being led to believe any individual in this country (legal or illegal) regardless of race color or gender who has no job, no house, no college fund, can’t pay their bills, no car, no transportation, can’t feed their dog… should I go on….my fault? Your fault? America’s fault? Entitled? Been wronged by someone else? I’ve had enough !!! I go to work every day pull 50 hour weeks and in addition own a “small” business and have the same bills i.e mortgage, taxes, utilities, food, fuel etc. as everyone else in this country and then some due to “personal choices” i.e college loans for my son’s education as I am not eligible for the “freebies” this country has been “forced” to hand out…”reparations” if you will…and none of my personal responsibilities or circumstances are this country’s problem nor do I expect them to be. As a “citizen” of this great country I pay taxes and expect my elected officials to be the executor of those funds providing to me and my family the services “I am paying for” being mindful of those less fortunate because of “circumstances” beyond their control. In my play book that would be acts of nature i.e. floods, famine, sudden loss of job, legal immigrants needing assistance….the truly needy not the lazy or illegal!!! Simply stated…I work very hard for my money, my modest lifestyle, my family. I pay taxes and I will not be forced to work so much harder to provide “anyone” who feels I or this country “owes” them a living period!! For those who feel I’m too bold please let me know. I would gladly provide a one way ticket to anywhere in Europe. How I long for a politician from any side of the aisle, any color, any gender, any race with the intelligence, common sense and enough guts to tell it like it is and cut the BS !!!

  3. Reparations? Okay, but first deduct all of the money spent on Food Stamps, AFDC, SSI, Section 8 housing, child care subsidies amd Medicaid. Next, add on the total cost of all property stolen, damaged or destroyed in crimes motivated by “racial injustice.” Finally, add the cost of the Civil War (adjusted for inflation). Uh oh, now look who owes the debt!!
