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.

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.

When I first started hearing people on the political left describe themselves with some frequency as progressive back in the 1990s, the term did not seem tethered to the epoch-defining, early-20th-century spasm of moral crusading and government centralization that helped give us everything from trust busting to Prohibition to the Federal Reserve. As articulated by champions like Ralph Nader and Molly Ivins, the progressive label was both a way to get out from under the generation-old baggage of liberal-a term Ronald Reagan and others had turned into an epithet-and to differentiate lefties from seemingly apologetic triangulators like Bill Clinton and

While Illinois and Texas primaries were held last month, the 48 remaining state contests don’t start up again for three weeks. Here’s the good news for those of us hoping to determine whether Democrats or Republicans will be celebrating in the fall: From early May to early September, we’ll have a steady stream of conventions, primaries and runoffs to keep us busy. We’ve already learned a little from the first two contests. On March 4, Texas told us two contradictory

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

Over 80 members of the Brandeis University faculty sent a letter to the school’s president earlier this month, demanding the school withdraw its honorary degree invitation to women’s rights activist and critic of Islam Ayaan Hirsi Ali. Brandeis rescinded the invitation to Hirsi Ali last week, prompting a public backlash from Hirsi Ali’s supporters. In the April 6 letter, faculty members called on Brandeis President Fred Lawrence to drop Hirsi Ali from the ceremony because of comments she has made about her opposition to Islam. “We are writing to urge you to rescind immediately the invitation to Ms. Ayaan Hirsi

He may not have been able to attend the Sochi Olympics, but Vice President Joe Biden is set to return to the world sporting event stage this summer by hanging out at the World Cup, the White House announced today. Biden is very excited. "You know, we have our Super Bowl, we have our World Series, we have the NBA Finals, we have March Madness, but my Lord, it is nothing quite like the World Cup," he said today as he and Secretary of State John Kerry unveiled the World Cup trophy. Kerry, meanwhile, stuck with boring comments like "I can´t think

Obama´s Numbers Worse News For Democrats

Bad as Obama’s poll numbers are, they bode worse for Congressional Democrats. Obama is being buoyed by continued strong support from Democrat voters. The problem for Congressional Democrats is that November’s election outcome will not be determined in Democrat strongholds. Recent Quinnipiac polling data (released April 2, of 1,578 registered voters nationwide, with a MOE of +/-2.5%) showed the president with a deeply negative rating on his handling of the economy: 40% approval and 55% disapproval. In his sixth year in office, and the fifth year after the recession, 74% of respondents still rated the economy as “not so good” to

During her brief but lucrative stint as president of Wal-Mart’s charitable foundation in 2012, Sylvia Matthews Burwell received at least $750,000 in bonuses from an organization that doles out hundreds of millions of dollars in contributions but keeps a tight lid on its own compensation practices, records show. Ms. Burwell spent a little more than a year running Wal-Mart’s foundation before President Obama tapped her to be his budget chief last year — and then last week asked her to take over as health and human services secretary. Her White House biography touts her key private-sector experience as president of the massive

Can You Lie in Politics?
Supreme Court Will Decide

The Supreme Court has made pretty clear that putting your money where your mouth is deserves broad protection as a form of free political speech. The justices are about to consider whether outright lying in a campaign deserves a similar First Amendment shield. The court’s recent decisions easing the flow of generous campaign contributions already shifted the electoral landscape. If the court finds that even the most patently outrageous statements about candidates may not be barred by law, those two decisions combined could expand the rhetorical battlefield of the midterm elections and raise the attack ad volume as never before.

The Real Meaning of Soviet
Agitprop in Jay Carney’s Kitchen

As soon as the photograph of Soviet propaganda posters in Jay Carney’s kitchen hit the Internet, right-wing pundits began to draw conclusions about White House Press Secretary’s ideology, morals, and political leanings. It was as if things that a man merely places on his walls and looks at day after day can be any indication of his life choices. If that were so, the meals in Carney’s kitchen would also probably match the menu of the place and time of the posters. His family would be living on a diet of beets, gruel, occasional rat, and thinly sliced boiled jackboots, which

BUNKERVILLE, NEVADA—The Bundy Ranch roundup has understandably stirred thin-stretched emotions as the federal government seizes cattle belonging to the Bundy family. The family settled in the late 1800’s and has ranched in the area since. The federal government allowed Nevada ranchers to graze their cattle on federal tracts of land adjacent to their private properties for generations. The federal government later created the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) to administer and “protect” the vast swaths of federal land—including the land the Bundy family’s livelihood was—and still is—dependent upon. The BLM began restricting ranchers’ usage of federal lands to protect various

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

On Fox News Sunday, political analyst Brit Hume said that Eric Holder’s claim that his treatment at the hands of Representative Louie Gohmert (R-TX) at a House hearing this week was unprecedented toward an Attorney General, made him a “crybaby,” and that he and President Barack Obama had in fact benefited “enormously” from being the first African Americans in their respective positions. “This strikes me as kinda crybaby stuff from Holder,” Hume said. “My sense about this is both Eric Holder and Barack Obama have benefited politically enormously from the fact that they are African American and the first to

Let me obliterate a bit of confusion here: the Obama administration attempted to go to war with a rancher in Nevada. Let me amplify a little bit of truth: They tucked tail and have returned home. And let me add a bit of clarity: they had no choice! As the nation began to become familiar with the plight of the family of Cliven Bundy, many of us harkened back to another standoff in which the Federal government attempted to bully it´s outcome: Waco, Texas and the Branch Davidian massacre. It is telling that in the Nevada case the feds pulled out so

They’re both qualified, respectful of each other (shocker!), and represent the vast majority of middle America. So what’s not to like about another Clinton/Bush race for 2016? When you mention the prospect of Clinton vs. Bush 2016 a funny thing happens. First, there is the reflexive response: "Oh no, not again. We don´t need more dynastic politics in this country." But upon further reflection, you realize Jeb Bush vs. Hillary Clinton would be a great race and actually good for the country. Let´s review. QUALIFICATIONS—THEY’VE BOTH GOT THEM.

A rapid shift to wind and solar power is needed if the world is to avoid catastrophic global warming, the United Nations warns in a crucial report today. Emissions of greenhouse gases need to be cut by up to 70 per cent before 2050 to control climate change, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) says. ‘Large-scale changes in energy systems’ are required, with coal power stations to be switched off and replaced by wind and solar. And the transformation needs to be made in the next 15 years or controlling climate change will become increasingly harder and more expensive. The report was published

Not because I had made any conscientious, deliberate decision, but since people had been asking for as long as literally I could remember, it was no."

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

LAS VEGAS — The Nevada Republican Party stripped opposition to abortion and gay marriage from its platform Saturday as state convention delegates instead focused on judging fellow Republicans on their worthiness to serve in office and adherence to GOP values. The platform, with few changes, was adopted overwhelmingly as the Las Vegas convention stretched late into the evening. The vote mirrors that of the Clark County GOP, which voted earlier to remove platform language defining marriage as between a man and a woman and statements opposing abortion. Many Republicans are re-evaluating their strong stances on conservative social issues as public

A Russian fighter jet made multiple, close-range passes near an American warship in the Black Sea for more than 90 minutes Saturday amid escalating tensions in the region, a U.S. military official said Monday. In the first public account of the incident, the official said the Russian Fencer flew within 1,000 yards of the USS Donald Cook, a Navy destroyer, at about 500 feet above sea level. Ship commanders considered the actions provocative and inconsistent with international agreements, prompting the ship to issue several radio queries and warnings. The fighter appeared to be unarmed and never was in danger of

Some time back, whenever a big racial controversy erupted, I trained myself into the habit of reading about it at FoxNews.com, just for the unbelievable comment threads. Let’s put it this way: If my friends and I went out to a bar and started playing a “let’s write the racist FoxNews.com comment thread” drinking game, our efforts couldn’t begin to approach what I read there.I wasn’t alone. Liberal websites started feasting on these threads. And so, a couple of years ago, Ailes & Co. got wise. Stories about race were, at least in my disheartened experience, closed to comments.
