Obama Bucks

Updated on March 22, 2013

This Is What We Want Our Country To Come To?

They say that the acorn never falls far from the tree. Such might be the case for Nancy Pelosi and her daughter Alexandra. The acorn I speak of is not the same ACORN that Obama worked for as a community organizer though there might be a common thread that spins through the tale. It's hard to listen to Nancy because she is such a head case. I think Alexandra makes a little more sense at times though not much. So first lets discuss Nancy and her latest citation of the "Founding Father's" intent for this nation. This drivel spewed forth on the second anniversary, which Obama somehow failed to celebrate, of the freedom stealing signature piece of legislation we now not so affectionately call Obamacare.

Now according to San Fran Nan, who must live in an alternate universe and commute here daily, Obamacare has now allowed the freedom that the Founding Father's envisioned. How's that? Well, Obamacare was seen as an "Entrepreneurial Bill" you see. You just fail to see the obvious.

We Obviously Missed The Point?

Now this seems a bit unreal. We have a House Minority Leader standing in front of a crowd pronouncing that it's okay to quit your job so you can pursue your talents. Don't worry about it if you want to be creative, just quit your job and the tax payer's will pick up the tab for your health care. You know become liberated! And I quote her here: "the type of “liberation” that the 'Founders had in mind' because it allows you to quit your job and become a “photographer,” a “writer,” a “musician”--or “whatever.” The "whatever" part concerns me a bit.

I don't think the Founding Fathers thought anywhere close to the way that Nancy Pelosi thinks they thought. This nation was built on hard, back breaking, blood shedding work, not freebies. Oh yeah Pelosi but I'm wondering if you saw the short interviews your daughter did in her recently released clip on "welfare queens." We'll get to that segment in a minute.

Oh and she went further. She told the crowd that as one hears these stories, "this is liberation." Again I quote, “This is what our founders had in mind--ever expanding opportunity for people. Having quoted her on that one, lets swing over and watch a short clip of the interviews her daughter, Alexandra, did on the mean streets of New York City. Before you watch though let me remind you that they walk among us. This was aired on Bill Maher's show by the way.

Obama Bucks Is Where It's At!

"I'm not looking for a job, maybe a career, but not a job." Wowser! Where I come from first you get a job, then decide if you want to make it a career and if you don't then you go out and change fields and so forth and so on. Somewhere along the line most hard working Americans realize that what they do puts a roof over their heads, clothes on their backs and food on their tables. I reckon we just haven't become liberated enough yet according to Pelosi. Of course, being a professional, pickpocket politician, I don't imagine the woman has ever held a real job in her life. Just read her bio sometime.

She went on to play her usual sympathy card by saying, “You want to be a photographer or a writer or a musician, whatever -- an artist, you want to be self-employed, if you want to start a business, you want to change jobs, you no longer are prohibited from doing that because you can’t have access to health care, especially because you do not want to put your family at risk,”

Life is about "risk." Those of us who have taken the risk usually reap the rewards of doing so. Those of us who have responsibly raised our families know what it takes to provide for those we hold near and dear. That isn't about receiving "Obama Bucks" Nancy, that is about going to work and doing what is required to be done to do so. It is called "freedom" and what this nation was founded on - hard work, sweat and toil.

Not The First Nor Last Time Probably

That clip was from May of 2010 so her tune hasn't changed. I was always an aspiring musician myself but then realized I don't have the God given talent that a Jimmie Buffet has. What bothers me is that here we have a national figure encouraging people to just quit their job and go off into LalaLand to pursue their dreams while the rest of us continue to do what we know must be done to make ends meet. Life just isn't like that and probably never will be. There are hobbies and then there is work. Collecting "Obama Bucks" is a hobby to most who do so and has nothing to do with work which was well illustrated in daughter Alexandra's expose.

We hear, and have heard for decades now, the mantra of the Democratic Party about "breaking the cycle of poverty." That involves creativity in the thought process which I don't think many of those elected pickpockets have on Capitol Hill. You don't break the cycle of poverty by giving away "Obama Bucks" or the farm for that matter. You don't give a man a fish, you teach him how to fish. You don't need to have the federal government as your Nanny. Have you lost all your self-respect or did you possess any in the first place? The US tax payer shouldn't be placed in the role of being the financier of people who want to quit their job and pursue their dreams. What kind of signal are we sending to the youth of this nation by such nonsense? Something is wrong with this picture.

There is no Obama money folks. That is our money. There is no free lunch, someone is picking up the tab. I suppose if you are getting the free lunch that doesn't mean much to you but since I'm picking up part of the tab, it does to me. I'd love to quit the rat race, run off to Costa Rica and twiddle my toes through the sand. Someday I might just do that but then I face the reality of real life. In order to pursue my dreams I have to work very hard to do so.

We will have a choice in 2012. Obama is running as "The Provider" and he has made it obvious by his every move lately. My question is this, "Since he wants to 'provide' for your every want and need then who is going to provide the money for him to do that?" Is he going to stroke that extra check just to be fair? He hasn't nor will he. If there are enough people he encourages to be on the government tit then they may just catapult him to victory. But the reality is that socialism works just fine until you run out of other people's money.

We are indeed a nation adrift at this point. The idea that everything should be free will cause you to lose your freedom. Slavery to a powerful federal government is unacceptable. It was to the Founding Fathers and it should be to all Americans at this point. The redistribution of wealth was a key cornerstone in Karl Marx's way of thinking which led to communism. That proved to be a failed doctrine. Life just doesn't work that way.

As Always,

The Frog Prince

Remember In November

      Personally I don't care how many of my tax dollars go to help America's needy but we know that is not what is bankrupting us. I wouldn't care to bet it is into the billions by now we have given in one fashion or another to illegal immigrants, not counting Obama's border patrol millions and Hillary's drug billions she was to take to Mexico. Social workers will not tell you the truth on orders they have been given. I wish some of the ones who know the truth would ever speak up. I wish one of them would get a new career so they could spill their guts. I wish you could go were illegals live and see the buggies of food the groups of them push to their new SUVs. That is where the food stamps are going. When I mentioned this to a social worker who I know has seen it too she said well all we can do is go by the information we are given. BULL...they know we are feeding millions of illegals here and half of Mexico! We have already been overtaken, I don't see a way out because both parties OK it. I guess each has their reason. It has nothing to do with helping us I can promise you.

      The fellow who wants a career but not a job is drinking the same KoolAid as Nancy Inanity. Neither one has a genuine hold on reality. It would be funny if it were not so tragic. Thanks for this wake-up call of a hub, Fred, every voter should read it.

      poetvix - Any intelligent person can easily understand exactly what you said and sees it in action when they just watch the past three plus years, not to mention the decades since LBJ and "The Great Society."

      How have you been, or maybe it should be, where in the heck have you been?

      Sir Frog, I yet again commend you for telling the hard truth. Nanny Nancy is a nut and so is her child. To me, this ever increasing talk of ending poverty is backed up by action that will ensure its growth. If we look at generational studies of recipients, we can see that it becomes a condition that is handed down through families. The cycle of poverty is not broken by this but conditioned to be the norm. With unemployment escalating, no matter what smoke screen they play with the numbers, more and more go on the rolls while fewer and fewer pay in.

      Mathematically speaking, anyone can see the spiral will cycle downward until it inevitably hits zero and there is just nothing left. The conditioning of the people to expect to be taken care of and the ever shrinking pool of those who take care of themselves passing that value onto the next generation if left unchecked will ensure that America falls. Our descendents, assuming the process takes that long which is a big assumption depending on one's current age, will be slaves to the government and nothing more.

      BPOP - Government dependency is what the Democratic Party has been about for decades. Mention "Workfare" in Congress and they faint on the spot. "Heavens! You want them to do what?"

      Pelosi says calling Obama the food stamp president is a badge of honor. This should give her quick entry into the lunatic asylum. Welfare was originally meant to be a leg up in tough times, but now it is a way of life. I think Obama likes it that way. Needy people obey more easily. Up and awesome.

      The Frog Prince 5 years ago from Arlington, TX

      Anje - Good observations. This all started with LBJ and the creation of "The Great Society." Since that time we've bred generation after generation of welfare queens who feel they are entitled to suck up tax payer money with no intention, nor desire, of wanting to work. Now they have all kinds of loony toon politicians fighting for their "rights" to continue the cycle of poverty. That's something for anyone to give some serious thought to. Obama is intent on expanding that dependency, not reducing it.

      Fred - You got me laughing this morning. Yep, it helps to have a table to put the vittles on.

      Frog: "...maybe a career, but not a job." Yeah, that line caught my attention, too. During my "working life" (day job years), I had more than 100 jobs--lost count toward the end, actually. Two, maybe three different careers were blended in that mix somewhere, depending on how you did the tally.

      And always--as you said--the JOB was Priority One. Food on the table. Hell, for that matter, a table on which to PUT the food, and sometimes not that, either.

      Voted Up and Lots.

      Bravo----this was a great hub about a dirty little secret in our country that I have seen first hand for the past five decades---able-bodied people who do not work and the politicians who have ALWAYS encouraged them not to work for the past 6 decades----ie; Barbara Boxer, Maxine Waters,Nancy Pelosi,Geraldine Ferraro and those are JUST some of the women of one state who for decades have championed the cause of the "dumbing down and the drugging of Americas Poor" under the lie of helping the poor--while encouraging the "poor people" of our country to have more babies and by convincing these ppl. that this is the way to live and get more money---

      Our welfare program has not been to benefit people who are not able-bodied but to benefit whole neighborhoods nationwide for just making more kids and the democratic

      politicians have encouraged these folks to procreate, to continue killing each other and to live very well on the 445 government welfare programs available to "poor" people who have kids they cannot afford to feed generation after generation----Minorities Procreate is written in "poor" neighborhoods across America and there is clear evidence in many cities that the government hires puppets to paint this crap nationally----

      I know from working with gangbangers for decades that this is how huge sectors of ppl have lived across the nation---their granddaddies were bangers, their daddies were bangers, they are bangers and their sons and daughters are gangbanging all over the nation for more than 6 decades and although you see very little drug usage among these men, often their mamas and grandmas and sisters and baby mommas are crackheads and junkies and alchoholics and they have learned from our politicians that the ticket to not being poor and not ever having to work is to let the government support them and theirs. And because of the advertising Obama has done about obama phones and obama computors and obama home phones and all the NEW welfare handouts created under this regime----these uneducated, never watch the news, don't have the internet "poor" people believe the lie that Obama is all about them---when the facts are just the opposite---

      And these Femi-Nazi promoters have convinced their districts for many, many decades that money can be printed on demand and you hear that from the morons in Pelosi's daughters' video----and these politicians have been telling their districts this forever

      I have been hearing from black kids for 6 decades that they deserve these freebies and they deserve to have many generations of no one in their whole neighborhood having to ever have a job because their "ancestors" were slaves here----And none of them know that the English and the Spanish brought the slaves to America when they learned that the African families were selling their children into slavery and none of them know that the white Americans that 200 years later they have been taught by their three black leaders to hate did not even exist when slavery came to America and none of them know that their government and especially Obama want to keep them dumbed down and drugged up---this is why I teach them the truth across the nation but I don't see anyone else with any ideas about what to do about this growing cancer in our country that has been here for decades

      And these kids and their forefathers are very surprised to learn that we can't just "print more money" and that for them to have these free benefits that 12 white people have to work and that as the baby boomers retire that number rises to 22 ppl of any color need to work to pay the benefits owed to baby boomers----75% of which will reach retirement age broke---

      And when you think like this----why not keep sending the same ppl. back to DC who have soooooo successfully created a welfare district in their names and who they think will just print more money for them to waste---their districts are "dumbed down and drugged up" and killing each other and that has always been the plan---

      Long before Fast and Furious our government dropped off truckloads of guns all over the hood and barrio and gangbanging neighborhoods across America----and have continued to do so for four decades and literally overnite in our country the "poor ppl" had guns thousands and thousands of guns where no guns existed ever before and those ppl have NEVER had money to buy guns---our politicians have been dropping them off on the streets of these neighborhoods for decades under the specials ops program "thinning of the herd"--- which I have said before here that I have heard politicos in both parties promoting nationwide for the past four decades---the Clintons built their gun and drug running operations from Mena as their own little side business and those guns ended up in the hood in Little Rock--

      All these guns in the hood and the barrio are always

      "untraceable" because our government put them on our city streets---just like they armed the Cartels in Mexico to promote the "thinning of the herd" across the border where guns are against the law and were it not for Americans being killed with these guns and if these had not been traceable like they were here, we would still not know about this agenda

      I have not listened to anything Pelosi has said in two decades knowing she is championing a NWO and there is no doubt that the most ridiculous spin ever comes from the members of the Democratic party and when their War Room of college kids tells them what to say to spin an agenda they can be heard saying things that one would NEVER hear a Republican say, but this speech takes the CAKE---she has been saying this crap for decades while encouraging broke ppl to have more kids to get more free money but, I think with this speech---she and the DEMS has just lost it---I have always believed that if your life is that of a liar and a thief and a con and a manipulator that one day you will just freakin' lose it and say any freakin' thing---

      Pelosi has mastered the art of being soft spoken in a very loud workplace to make herself more believable so I wouldn't expect her to cry like Hillary did, but I do believe she has totally lost it to agree to read a speech like this one which has gone viral around the world already---I have known for awhile that Pelosi had a daughter involved in politics and reporting but I assumed she is a little Nancy and have not paid an ounce of attention to her either, but I am off to google her now----her video clearly exposes the democratic agenda by exposing the thoughts of the generations of able bodied non-working ppl.???

      Is there more out there of her "bucking" her mom's agenda--going to find out---

      Great work on this hub

      Again, I love when the truths are exposed and that welfare video needs to go viral----I have been saying ad-infinitum that the huge majority of black and hispanic teens are convicted felons by the age of 15 and they cannot work anywhere in our country and I have proposed that the non-violent offenders by put in the military to serve for four years for the opportunity to have their felony convictions expunged and the politicians have no interest in this concept because they want to keep them in the hood and killing each other and the American ppl bitch about this huge economic cancer in our country but neither they or the Republicans have any ideas as to how to turn this around---

      I posted it to facebook where my audience is all 20 something year olds---every working American should see that video yesterday

      vrajavala - Holder should have been impeached long ago.

      Stu - You're one person I don't have to tell just how I feel about San Fran Nan. What still amazes me is that the people in her district keep sending her back to do more damage. There has to be some one with some common sense in the 6th District they could send to DC and put her out to pasture where she belongs.

      Well put Frog. Sadly we are running out of "other people's money." Federal spending alone is now 25% of GNP, 40% of that amount borrowed. State and municipal spending likley brings us over 30%. Much of this money goes to transfer programs, that aren't even means tested. We've been doing this for so long we now owe 700% of GNP in official plus off balance sheet debt.

      But, never one to say no without a test, let's do a pilot program and offer Nancy free ObamaCare if she quits Congress and becomes a musician. Oops, I forgot, she gets free health care now, and it's better than ObamaCare. Maybe we should all become Congressmen. It fits right with Nancy's plan - you don't have to do any work, and you get free healthcare! But we'd still have Nancy in Congress. I'm not sure which plan is better. Is there a Czar for that?
