Obama: Perpetuation of Poverty?

If you're looking around for the column about Teddy Kennedy (now in the hospital with stroke symptoms) conspiring with the Soviet KGB in the 1980s, you should go to my national blog and scroll down one column. I hope you'll bring it to the attention of your friends and political allies.

On this blog focused on Hillary supporters for McCain, I have several columns (scroll down) about how the Democrats' "Old Boys Network" (led by Howard Dean, Ted Kennedy, and Barack Obama) is working with the media to unfairly deny Sen. Clinton the Democratic nomination.

The following is from "LargeBear" (Randy), a proud member of the large (and growing) "Black Conservatives" group on Yahoo:

"Quote of the week from Charles Barkley ( for those of you that don't know, he's a former basketball NBA Allstar that is a sports commentator and should run for office with this in-sight)."

"Poor People have been voting for Democrats for the last 50 years, and they are still poor."

My comments:

Randy, the poor people voting for Democrats in the vain hope that things will improve reminds me of two of my favorite quotes:

"The definition of insanity is to do the same thing over and over in the hope that it will somehow produce different results." and,

"Sometimes all of life seems a preparation for something that never happens." (W. B. Yeats, Irish poet)

A truth you won't hear from Obama or his allies: If a political party has a solid hold on a certain voting bloc, the last thing it wants to see is that group somehow disappear (i.e., in this case, have the poor get "un-poor").

Barack Obama's "solution" to poverty is to tax people of modest means in order to make them poorer -- and, paradoxically, more likely to vote for him in the future. Hillary Clinton's comment on affluent people (which certainly includes her and her husband) is, "More power to them!" Good for her!
