Obama’s America: The View from Prague
Power Line, by Steven Hayward

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 11/19/2012 5:49:07 AM

Courtesy of some Facebook friends, a translation of an editorial from the Czech newspaper Prager Zeitungon: The danger to America is not Barack Obama, but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president. The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama,

Excellent evaluation coming from a rare overseas country with some common sense.
Of course it´s Obama voters who pose the real problem.The culture of gimme has overwhelmed us and Obama is he best enabler they´ve ever had.

There was no welfare magnet back during the Ellis Island days except maybe relatives who took people in until they got their feet on the ground. They came here penniless in a lot of cases and worked on a dream.They made this country it is today or what´s left of it.
They also came here to be Americans not a bunch of hyphenated Americans.You have 10´s of thousands of deserted manufacturing plants in the NE now and my opinion is the advent of organized labor was behind this.

The cost of hiring people today is so expensive,that employers have been corrupted into hiring under the table workers to avoid all these costs.Since they don´t pay taxes they get more bang for the buck even at a lower scale.

If you have to lay off an illegal worker,no big deal because it doesn´t raise your contribution to the unemployment fund.If they get injured,the employer self pays for their treatment,avoiding higher premiums on their workmans comp policies.

Drudge had a headline 2 weeks ago that 2 out of 3 people hired under Obeama were immigrants.The cost of hiring an American is just too steep.Only to get worse with Obamacare.Illegals are also carved out on paying for Obamacare.

Sadly, my brother, who used to live in the Czech Republic and loves its people, is one of the idiots who voted for Obama with great enthusiasm. The Czechs know what it is like to live under totalitarian rule. It´s a sin that so many Americans are willfully going down that road and dragging the rest of us along behind.

ROmney was right but the MSM allowed the Obama regime to use his words over and over again to trash him. I doubt if any one on the public dole voted against Obama. Not only does that segment of America scare me, but the MSM who also supports him no matter what he does. Four Americans were murdered in our name and it was not considered news by the MSM until after the election. That too is a danger to America.

Seems to me that a vast number of Obama devotees are unwilling to accept responsibility or recognize an authority figure. They have been coddled and pampered by their parents and easily brainwashed by the educational system. The concept of hard work is also beneath them. Our prosperity has created the climate wherein these types of individuals can flourish and they have. We are about to see just what the United States is made of when the economy collapses. We will see who fairs better. I am sure some in the world look at us and wonder what in the heck happened! Unfortunately, those who have lived under the yolk of tyranny recognize it all too easily and realize that we are headed to a very dark place.

ALL of the people I have talked to who supported obama had extremely small intellects, no historical knowledge and just about no financial knowledge. But ALL of them had college degrees.
One of them, a cpa in her fifties, was unaware of anyone having cut taxes in this country and the consequences of such an action. All of them were for making drugs legal, suicide, abortion WHENEVER, even after live birth. Depraved is a mild word for this bunch of voters.

Obama need not worry about his voters seeing this article. So many of them just aren´t ´into reading.´ Reading would be such a waste of time, when they have Obama´s Marxists to tell them what they think.

I sure would like to know what was promised to the Zippy voters, not the long term stuff, the immediate payoff. We saw so many voters out that NEVER come to vote and certainly not at 9am. Just what was payoff that day?? There had to be something. These folks are so clueless they have a tattoo on their hand reading "Inhale,Exhale".

The sad thing is I know many of these "fools" and they are really deceived people more than foolish. They have been fed lie upon lie for a long time and it didn´t start in politics, but rather in the "Christian" churches who have been propagating a phony god for generations. Their god cares not a whit about sins like sexual immorality or lying or cheating or stealing or murder. Their god only cares about "helping" the poor and the proof you are worshiping their god is if you vote for the democrats.

According to this, this quotation originated on an American blog in 2009.

http://flattopshistorywarpolitics.yuku.com/topic/1315#.UKo2KIVLcbU

In April 2011, an American Thinker writer cited it and said this:

There is a wonderful quote that has been making its way around the internet over the past year. It apparently was translated from an article published in the Czech Republic newspaper Prager Zeitung last April and reads as follows:

http://www.americanthinker.com/2011/04/will_ignorance_lead_to_a_secon.html

Prager Zeitung, by the way, is a German language newspaper that publishes in Czechoslovakia.

No matter. It´s as true now as it was then. More so because the same stupid, reckless people voted for him again this month.

Whoever wrote it, and when, is beside the point. The real point is that it is absolute TRUTH, and that is one of the two things that make me so pessimistic/doubtful about the future of this country. (The other is our refusal to stand behind Israel.) 11/6 wasn´t our Kristallnacht, but it surely helped pave the way for it. :sigh:

If you want a reality check on what´s going on with Obama, ask people in the countries that were behind the Iron Curtain.

We heard the same attitude as in this article from the Poles we met there, including government officials.

I´ve been worried sick for the last four years because I DID live behind the Iron Curtain. Granted, I was there as an American diplomat, but I saw firsthand the horrors of Marxism. It was like being in a shark cage - I was insulated from the damage but I could see it clearly. It is beyond hideous and worse than anything most Americans have ever heard about it.

I grieve for my country and for my daughter´s future.

As others have said this was true 4 years ago and more true today. The decadent population is the problem. A free country cannot survive a decadent immoral population. I compare it to a parasite that kills it´s host and thus itself by never knowing when to stop sucking the life from it´s host. The parasites believe Obama saying that nothing needs to change if only the rich pay a little more. The GOP would have done well to feature the ad of Thomas Peterffy during the election and hammer it home. The rich will be poorer but the poor will be much poorer.

I´ve been to Praque, and highly recommend it to anyone going to Europe. It´s a beautiful city and the home of John Hus, the singing martyr, one of the early church reformers.

The Czech people are more in tune with American ideals than their European neighbors.

I just got back from a couple of weeks in Prague, where my daughter is studying for semester.

Sad thing is, in their most recent elections they voted in a bunch of Communists. No limit to what people will do for the promise of free stuff.

Even sadder, I felt so much freer there. Nobody asked me for an ID of any kind other than the hotel when I registered. Only place I had to submit to search and give up my electronics was the American Embassy. People eat and drink wherever they want, nobody worries about lawsuits, and even the dogs go everywhere without leashes. Wonder how long that will all last.

I still doubt the voting in last Tuesday´s election was proper. 0bama certainly got the lion´s share of votes cast by illegal aliens, felons legally disenfranchised, and the falsely registered deceased -- to say nothing of the machines rigged to count votes for Romney as votes for 0bama. (Touch screens in Colorado were programmed that way. Some voters caught the error, but many certainly didn´t.)

Sadly, the words in this article (if it really is one) only shows what America has become during the past several decades. But, it´s really no wonder. It seems that the vast number of immigrants, both legal and illegal, have come here from countries that were socialist, communist, or outright corrupt. As such, it´s the type of government they are used to and don´t any other. They have no background of freedom and self reward. So, they just vote for the person that will give them the most freebies.

In re #20, the confederacy of fools includes inner city blacks and hispanics, single mothers of all races, the young and dumb (university campuses stocked full of impressionable young people), young urban professionals who want everything now, yes, the msm, and the anti-Romney-ites who wanted to make their statement by not voting. Regardless of the source of the information, the message hold much merit and hits home on who is changing the face of America.

Do I care if 50% of the country are fools who want to live in socialism? Not really as long as they confine it to states like Mass and CA and all the other deep blue states. What I object to is the nationalization of these practices so that we ALL must suffer as one, when we´re not one.

This is why I want to divvy up the country so that the libs can have their socialism and the rest of us can have what America was intended to be. Shouldn´t that be agreeable to everyone? Sure seems like an amicable situation to me.

I have a thought, was talking about it for years.
The conservatives for many reasons don´t believe in the power of propaganda. How do you think the morons/drones/jerks/leeches will react to the promises of commies to get everything with no efforts? Of course they love it! On top of that the feelings of greed, jealousy, and inadequacy help.
We, on the other hand didn´t even try to organize mainstream media to explain to the above mentioned idiots what will happen later if we continue along this path.
And mind you, we have history of fascism and communism to prove it!
But no, every theoretician blabbers about wider tent! Morons and drones don´t care about tent - they already have the leaders - commies, who fulfill the promise. They don´t need repibics to repeat the promises made by dems!
But when the dust settles things will be different from the promised fascist/commie paradise. And this is what conservative mainstream media HAS to explain!

... And then there is that nasty situation of widespread voter fraud in swing states, with larger percentages of people turning out to vote in swing state precincts than there were registered voters.

Stop this travesty at the Electoral College or in the Congress, or with secession. The red states and any who want to join them can form one country and the blue states can wallow in socialism, at their own expense.

Advice to Democrats: Don´t say ´recovery´
Associated Press, by David Espo    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 4/18/2014 10:15:20 AM     Post Reply
WASHINGTON - Election-year memo to Democratic candidates: Don´t talk about the economic recovery. It´s a political loser. So say Democratic strategists in a blunt declaration that such talk skips over "how much trouble people are in, and doesn´t convince them that policymakers really understand or are even focusing on the problems they continue to face." In addition, Stan Greenberg, James Carville and others wrote that in head-to-head polling tests the mere mention of the word "recovery" is trumped by a Republican assertion that the Obama administration has had six years to get the economy moving and its policies haven´t worked. Coincidentally or not,

Iran Gets an Unlikely Visitor, an American
Plane, but No One Seems to Know Why

President Obama has warned that Iran is not open for business, even as the United States has loosened some of its punishing economic sanctions as part of an interim nuclear pact. Yet, on Tuesday morning, Iran had an unlikely visitor: a plane, owned by the Bank of Utah, a community bank in Ogden that has 13 branches throughout the state. Bearing a small American flag on its tail, the aircraft was parked in a highly visible section of Mehrabad Airport in Tehran. But from there, the story surrounding the plane, and why it was in Iran — where all but a few

Cost of Treatment May Influence Doctors

Saying they can no longer ignore the rising prices of health care, some of the most influential medical groups in the nation are recommending that doctors weigh the costs, not just the effectiveness of treatments, as they make decisions about patient care. The shift, little noticed outside the medical establishment but already controversial inside it, suggests that doctors are starting to redefine their roles, from being concerned exclusively about individual patients to exerting influence on how health care dollars are spent. “We understand that we doctors should be and are stewards of the larger society as well as of the patient in

Hillary Clinton may end up deciding she wants to spend the 935 days until election 2016 making corporate speeches and spoiling her grandchild. Recent events have exposed weaknesses in Clinton’s supposedly impregnable armor, gaps through which a Democratic or Republican challenger could damage, perhaps even defeat her. The bad headlines to which she has been subjected are enough to make anyone—anyone who isn’t a Clinton—think twice about running for president. Look at the polls. This week’s Fox News poll has Clinton’s favorable rating at its lowest point in six years. She is at 49 percent favorable, 45 percent unfavorable—similar to her

President Barack Obama used his Thursday press conference to diagnose Republicans as fear-mongering, spiteful, obstinate, petulant and obstructive, as he again declared mission-accomplished in his effort to put the nation’s health-care under government control. “I recognize that their party is going through the stages of grief — anger and denial and all that stuff — and we’re not at acceptance yet,” Obama told reporters, where he announced that his Obamacare network had claimed 8 million subscribers. Obama coupled his passive-voice diatribe with his more-in-sorrow-than-anger promise that he “would much prefer a constructive conversation with the Republicans about how do we get some

The captain of a ferry that sank off the coast of South Korea Wednesday, leaving nearly 300 people missing, is under investigation as a possible criminal and was one of the first people to escape the doomed vessel, Coast Guard officials said. Lee Joon-seok, 69, left the ferry on a lifeboat 32 minutes after reporting an accident, officials said. The captain appeared on Korean television today, his face covered by a gray hoodie. “I am really sorry and deeply ashamed,” he said, as he was being questioned at the Mokpo Coast Guard Office. It´s unclear which of his actions could be considered criminal.

CBO shows it’s Paul Ryan 4,
Obama 0 on budget targeting

Soon after the tea party era began in Congress in 2011, President Obama and House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan each released their budgets, proposing how much the government should tax and spend over the rest of the decade. Three years into that budget showdown, Mr. Ryan and his Republican colleagues are winning. Government spending has slowed, and Mr. Obama’s plans for higher taxes and higher spending have fallen by the wayside. “The discretionary spending has in fact been driven by Republicans post-2010 clamping down,” said Douglas Holtz-Eakin, a former director of the Congressional Budget Office who is now president of the

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?
