The Obama Economy: Right on Track

Those who know and understand what the American Left is trying to – no – doing to America have been trying to warn as many Americans as possible that the American Left is really trying to destroy America so they can rebuild it “closer to their heart’s desire.”  This is just one of the many attempts to explain what is happening:

The Cloward/Piven Strategy of Economic Recovery

Obama adheres to the Saul Alinksy Rules for Radicals method of politics, which teaches the dark art of destroying political adversaries. However, that text reveals only one front in the radical left’s war against America. The Cloward/Piven Strategy is another method employed by the radical Left to create and manage crisis. This strategy explains Rahm Emanuel’s ominous statement, “You never want a serious crisis to go to waste.”
The Cloward/Piven Strategy is named after Columbia University sociologists Richard Andrew Cloward and Frances Fox Piven. Their goal is to overthrow capitalism by overwhelming the government bureaucracy with entitlement demands. The created crisis provides the impetus to bring about radical political change.
Rather than placating the poor with government hand-outs, wrote Cloward and Piven, activists should work to sabotage and destroy the welfare system; the collapse of the welfare state would ignite a political and financial crisis that would rock the nation… [Emphasis added.]
Making an already weak economy even worse is the intent of the Cloward/Piven Strategy. It is imperative that we view the American Recovery and Reinvestment Plan’s spending on items like food stamps, jobless benefits, and health care through this end goal. This strategy explains why the Democrat plan to “stimulate” the economy involves massive deficit spending projects. It includes billions for ACORN and its subgroups such as SHOP and the Neighborhood Stabilization Program. Expanding the S-Chip Program through deficit spending in a supposed effort to “save the children” only makes a faltering economy worse. 
Well, don’t expect the Left to change course: though their mouths may say otherwise, their actions will continue because their plan is right on track.  See for yourself:

One thought on “The Obama Economy: Right on Track

  1. OK, Joe, just a quick look at just your charts shows a few obviously misleading statistics that a logic-based guy like yourself should have noticed.

    The first chart seems to indicate more than anything else that the population is aging and that we’re having fewer kids. Which of those is the fault of the “welfare state”?

    With the second chart, even if you accept the “formula” cited in the fine print, you’ll notice that it includes everyone receiving Medicaid or food stamps, then compares them to “privately employed persons.” But it doesn’t seem to take into account the fact that about 30 percent of food stamp recipients also have jobs, and about two-thirds of Medicaid recipiencts come from “working families.”

    Another problem with that chart is how it lumps together government-employed persons and welfare recipients. Why not lump all the workers together? Because that would tell a different story, right? Those “government-employed” persons include teachers, police and firefighters paid at the local level, and probably U.S. Postal Service employees (who are not paid by taxes)–are you really suggesting they should be lumped in with welfare recipients? (If so, I’d hesitate to report a break-in to your local cops.) In fact, it is undoubtedly true that some of those government employees also are welfare recipients. This chart then seems to count them twice.

    As for the two charts related to rising Medicaid costs — well, duh. Have you noticed the increase in your own insurance costs, or in the cost of medical care? We need to bring medical costs down for all patients, not just those on Medicaid.
