Obama's Caretaker Speech
Based on Obama's Claims
* What evil George Bush did to cause SOME PEOPLE to not be able to afford to pay off the credit card balances THAT THEY RAN UP? Was it the mailing of so many of those credit card notices that GOVERNMENT REGULATORS should reign in?
* What did evil George Bush do to cause the current unemployment rate to rise slightly? CONTEXT means a lot:
* About those people who are "working harder yet making less"......I AM NOT ONE OF THEM, nor are the millions and millions of people who PREPARED themselves, watched employment trends and went here the DEMANDS ARE for their given skills.
How are DEMOCRATS able to by pass the PROBLEMS that the cities and states that they DOMINATE are having - many of which are beyond any "pain" that the rest of the nation is experiencing? I can tell you how - only with COMPLICIT LISTENERS can someone look past that which the PEOPLE THEY VOTED FOR have caused and BLAME A COMMON IDEOLOGICAL FOE.
This is how Obama will win Clayton County Georgia, Southwest Philly and all of Detroit. This is a tacit approval for the MACHINE which runs these places and which Obama is a member of. It is ultimately a vote of ABSTRACTION from the facts on the ground.
Obama's speech was akin to the "Race Speech" in Philadelphia - if you are inclined to look past his IDEOLOGICALLY BASED viewpoints and his attacks in kind and only focus on the symbolism of it all - you can claim to have no issues with his speech.
(I am still burning up inside from the Race Speech in Philly in which he echoed what I have been attacking educational activist Jonathan Kozol for - that Black kids need to be in INTEGRATED schools with WHITE FOLKS rather than ALL BY OURSELVES for them to get a quality education")
From the Race Speech:
Segregated schools were, and are, inferior schools; we still haven't fixed them, fifty years after Brown v. Board of Education, and the inferior education they provided, then and now, helps explain the pervasive achievement gap between today's black and white students.
CLEARLY this is NOT THE CASE. The "segregated schools" of Northbrook and Winnetka, Illinois which might be the scene of protests by Black preachers who will depart the city of Chicago where their favored party has run for more than 3/4ths of a century and go to the "Segregated and Inferior schools" in Northbrook and Winnetka and tell those WHITE FOLKS - "Your school is INFERIOR because it does not have BLACK PEOPLE IN IT!!".
Here we have all of the KEY INTERESTS of Black people (education, employment, public safety and health - through not being shot to death) in the hands of two parties each with different visions. In the power of CO-CONSPIRACY - OUR PEOPLE are able to look past the vast FABRIC that blankets our community ALREADY and instead vote for a change at the top of the pyramid which is hundreds and sometimes thousands of miles away from them. And they call themselves a STRONG people!
