I recently had lunch with an old friend who owns a commercial/light industrial painting firm. He said his business is off 50% and he is down from 80 guys to 30. Unfortunately, this is a story I have heard all too often in 2009.
The socialist plan to kill as many jobs as possible and make as many people as possible dependent on the government is working to perfection.
Obama said in 2008 that he could be judged by the people who he has surrounding him. Yet another Marxist has joined that group, Robert McChesney. McChesney was a founder of Free Press a self described Marxist group/publication. Van Jones is on the board of Free Press. Julius Genachowski, the chairman of the FCC has appointed Jen Howard his press secretary. Jen was formerly a spokeswoman for Free Press. Gee, what a weird set of coincidences.
McChesney shares a very distorted view of the first amendment for free speech. He agrees with Mark Lloyd, Obama's Chief Diversity Officer, that the role model is Hugo Chavez of Venezuela. He openly admires the way Chavez has shut down all open opposition in the media.
Now, the Obama administration has appointed Anita Hill as their spokesperson assigned to monitoring FOX News for distortions and inaccuracies. There is something inherently perverse and a little scary about this scenario. Ms. Hill recently volunteered that Chairman Mao was one of her two favorite philosopher; Mao, who is widely acclaimed as the largest mass murder in history, worse even than Hitler or Stalin. Ms. Hill fits right in with the rest of the group surrounding President Obama.
I am afraid we are very close to the point of no return. I hope all those who voted for change open their eyes to what Obama meant when he said, "We are 5 days away from fundamentally changing the United States of America."
