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.

It’s impossible to exorcise the memories of 2012. But Rick Perry is going all out to present a new and improved version of himself — the swaggering big-state governor of old, with a dash of seasoned wise man thrown in. In the early months of 2014, his political team has booked him on one high-profile program after another: He’s joked with Jimmy Kimmel, charmed the “Morning Joe” crowd and wowed the Conservative Political Action Conference. The Texas Republican’s hip glasses are still earning approving media mentions long after he first donned them. And the possible 2016 candidate has spent time

When incumbent Democrat Senator Mark Pryor (D-AR) attacked his midterm opponent Rep. Tom Cotton (R-AR) last month over his supposed sense of “entitlement” from his military service, it prompted widespread scorn and mockery — not least of which included pointed reminders that Pryor owes his own political career to his dad. The NRSC hammered Pryor and its DSCC counterparts for their “unacceptable” attacks on military service, but Cotton himself has opted for a lighter touch. He called his drill instructor to demonstrate just what military service taught Cotton, and “entitlement” doesn’t make the list:

To prepare for Dyngus Day, Eddy Dobosiewicz drives to an abandoned lot in east Buffalo, N.Y., in search of an elusive commodity: pussy willows. Dyngus Day celebrations, to be staged Monday in Buffalo and a handful of other U.S. cities, trace their roots to ancient Polish fertility rites centered around the end of Lent and the advent of spring. As part of the festivities, young men traditionally splash water on women they fancy. Women carry pussy willow branches to hit the men they like. But this year, after an especially harsh winter, Dyngus Day organizers are worried that there won´t be enough

Harry Reid isn’t backing down from his claim that rancher Cliven Bundy’s supporters are “domestic terrorists.” It’s astonishing rhetoric given the White House’s characterization of the mass shooting by a genuine terrorist, Major Nidal Hasan, who killed 13 Americans at the Fort Hood Army base after yelling “Allahu Akbar!” (God is great.) Rather than labeling Hasan’s actions “domestic terrorism,” the Obama administration is prosecuting him for having committed “workplace violence.” Democratic rhetoric is become ever more desperate and overheated as we approach the November midterm elections. Last week, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said that GOP positions on immigration were motivated by

Obama admin wants to require companies

The Obama administration is poised to change regulations to allow for union “ambush elections” in which workers have less time to decide whether or not to join a union — and in which workers’ phone numbers and home addresses are provided to unions. The administration’s National Labor Relations Board’s (NLRB) proposed rules would allow for union elections — in which workers at a company vote whether or not to unionize — to be held 10 days after a petition is filed. And what, exactly, would be happening to the unions during those 10 days? The new rules require employers to disclose

Discovery Channel Cancels Its Terrible Idea

Following the deadly avalanche that killed at least 13 people, the Discovery Channel has realized that a live jump off the summit of Mount Everest is just a bad, bad plan and has cancelled the special. "In light of the overwhelming tragedy at Mount Everest and out of respect for the families of the fallen, Discovery Channel will not be going forward with Everest Jump Live," the network wrote on its website. "Our thoughts and prayers go out to the whole Sherpa community." Joby Ogwyn was to jump off Everest in a wing suit on May 11. On Friday, while the climbers

The Epic Hypocrisy of Tom Steyer

Billionaire hedge fund operator and “green” energy magnate Tom Steyer has pledged $100 million in the 2014 election cycle to help Democratic candidates who oppose the Keystone pipeline and who favor “green” energy over fossil fuels. Steyer claims to be a man of principle who has no financial interest in the causes he supports, but acts only for the public good. That is a ridiculous claim: Steyer is the ultimate rent-seeker who depends on government connections to produce subsidies and mandates that make his “green” energy investments profitable. He also is, or was until recently, a major investor in Kinder

What happens when presidents lie? The American public has had plenty of experience with this in recent years. Liar-president could be the new hyphenate occupation like writer-producer or architect-contractor. Almost every president has shaded things a bit, but three modern ones have been unabashed bull artists — Richard Nixon, Bill Clinton and, of course, Barack Obama. Clinton ultimately got a pass for his prevarications. Nixon didn’t. Neither deserved one. But our current liar-president deserves one even less, because his lies have been of substance, affecting policy. Nixon and Clinton just lied in self-defense — normal human cowardice. Obama is something else again. He

Obama shuts down debate

When President Obama trumpeted the 8 million figure representing people who had signed up for ObamaCare, he didn’t just declare it a victory. He declared the debate over — and told Republicans “it’s well time to move on.” Now, we understand the eagerness of politicians to declare debates over. It’s certainly easier than defending ObamaCare’s broken promises, or even providing the breakdowns behind that 8 million top-line number that would let us measure if the program is getting the sign-ups it needs. Increasingly, however, it seems that the “shut up and move on” trope has become the go-to response of liberals on

A disturbing story out of the Sooner State this week, noted by Doug Mataconis at Outside the Beltway. Under the terms of a recently passed bill, expected to be signed by Governor Mary Fallin, homeowners who install their own private solar or wind turbine energy resources and sell some of the juice back to energy companies will be paying a fee for the privilege. Utility customers who want to install rooftop solar panels or small wind turbines could face extra charges on their bills after legislation passed the Oklahoma House of Representatives on Monday. Senate Bill 1456 passed 83-5 after no debate

Easter 2014: A celebration of hope

Over 2 billion people are celebrating Easter today, April 20, as the calendars of Western and Eastern churches coincide this year, and these billions of faithful people are celebrating HOPE. The Easter message begins with the hopeful news that death has been overcome by life, that hatred has been overcome by love, and that sorrow has been overcome by joy. The elements of the story involve women arriving at a garden tomb and finding it empty, but even better, meeting the risen Lord, the embodiment of life and love. Their lives are changed forever and so are the lives of many, many

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

As he moves from lobbyists to the golf course, from press conferences to the tanning bed, he remains oblivious to all that is around him. He has power, incredible power, and yet to this day he has no understanding of the election that made it so. Moreover, all around him are astonishing opportunities for him to be an historic figure -- one who could and should be the man who did more than any other single person in turning back the red tide of Obama. It’s all there for Speaker of the House, and yet John Boehner manages to miss

Global sea levels have risen by 8 inches (20cm) since 1880 and scientists predict they could rise up to 3ft (98cm) by 2100. But despite the UN’s recent threats of war, famine and extreme weather, such a dramatically different world caused by sea level rise can be hard to imagine. To help picture the future, Martin Vargic, an amateur graphic designer from Slovakia, has created a map depicting the planet with sea levels around 260ft (79m) higher than they are today. He imagines what Earth would look like if the ice sheets surrounding the North and South poles melted, releasing

Joan Eisenstodt didn´t have a stopwatch when she went to see an ear, nose and throat specialist recently, but she is certain the physician was not in the exam room with her for more than three or four minutes. "He looked up my nose, said it was inflamed, told me to see the nurse for a prescription and was gone," said the 66-year-old Washington, D.C., consultant, who was suffering from an acute sinus infection. When she started protesting the doctor´s choice of medication, "He just cut me off totally," she said. "I´ve never been in and out from a visit faster." These days,

Perhaps the most remarkable feature of American democracy is the magnificent estate of public land that it reserved from the very beginning for the use of all citizens, rich or poor. There is nothing like it in the democracies of Europe, which came into being with nations already carved up into private fiefdoms. The Great Idea that hundreds of millions of acres of forests, deserts, rivers and prairies should be owned by, and managed for, the public interest has had a profound and lasting influence on American culture. But not everyone has accepted it. Cliven Bundy’s armed standoff with the National Park

At a petite 5’3’’, Sage Santangelo may not look like a combat fighter at first glance. But the female second lieutenant has never let that hold her back from pursuing her dream of becoming an infantry officer in the Marine Corps. Growing up, Santangelo found she was always able to keep up with the guys and enjoyed playing hockey on all boys’ teams. But when she joined the Marines, Santangelo found the playing field changed; she was segregated into female-only training units and as a woman, was relegated to less strenuous physical training than her male counterparts. And that’s why,

If the Rev. John DeBonville could preach a sermon to lift the souls of churchgoers across America, his message would be simple: Stop dressing so tacky for church. DeBonville has heard about the “come as you are” approach to dressing down for Sunday service, but he says the Sabbath is getting too sloppy. When he scans the pews of churches, DeBonville sees rows of people dressed in their Sunday worst. They saunter into church in baggy shorts, flip-flop sandals, tennis shoes and grubby T-shirts. Some even slide into the pews carrying coffee in plastic foam containers as if they’re going to Starbucks. “It’s like

"No, absolutely not," the November midterm election is not a referendum on President Obama and his policies, Democrat Party Chair Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) told NBC´s "Meet the Press" on Sunday. "[T]hese elections, particularly the Senate elections, are referendums on the candidates running," she said. Asked about vulnerable Democrats who have criticized President Obama´s flawed healthcare law, Wasserman Schultz said they are running their own race. "They have to talk about and focus on the issues that are important to their constituents. And what´s also true is, if you look at the success rate and the track record of

In an op-ed published in the Boston Globe on Easter Sunday and posted on the State Department website, Secretary of State John Kerry recalled his days as an altar boy and pointed out that he is “the first Catholic Secretary of State in 33 years.” Alexander Haig, who served as secretary of state to President Ronald Reagan from January 1981 to July 1982, was also a Catholic. Last month, I traveled to Rome with President Obama, where I was honored to meet His Holiness Pope Francis,” said Kerry. “As an altar boy six decades ago, I never imagined that I

Suppose a scientific conference on cancer prevention never addressed smoking, on the grounds that in a free society you can´t change private behavior, and anyway, maybe the statistical relationships between smoking and cancer are really caused by some other third variable. Wouldn´t some suspect that the scientists who raised these claims were driven by something—ideology, tobacco money—other than science? Yet in the current discussions about increased inequality, few researchers, fewer reporters, and no one in the executive branch of government directly addresses what seems to be the strongest statistical correlate of inequality in the United States: the rise of single-parent

In internal government documents with potential repercussions for the 2016 presidential election, top officials at the U.S. Agency for International Development repeatedly cited former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton for setting into motion a policy to waive restrictions on who could receive U.S. aid in Afghanistan, resulting in millions of dollars in U.S. funds going directly into the coffers of Afghan ministries known to be rife with corruption. References to Mrs. Clinton’s role in the policy first appeared in a November 2012 USAID action memo, which outlined how U.S. officials made a “strategic foreign-assistance
