The saddest thing is most young people today are liberals and seem to lean left on most issues. I don't know if it is because they are uneducated, they listen to the media, or if they are truly liberal to the core (I can't see how any middle class person could be). The real question is will they change their views in the future. If not, then the country as we know it will be vastly different in the future. Only time will tell.
He has lived his life the way he wanted to, using his own initiative, and passed his thinking and experience onto his children, as many successful people do.
When you make it up the ladder of success on your own without help from the government, you have every right to enjoy the results of your labors without guilt.
Obama could not have been more wrong nor intentionally deceitful when he stated "You didn't build that ... etc."
He wants people to believe that they can not make it on their own, thus keeping them "on the plantation" and always grateful to their "masters" ... be they black, white, or in between.
As for those on the left who mightily disagree with that and believe in their unfortunate so-called "victimhood" of circumstances ...

As an (apparent) homosexual, he/she is the one that is filled with guilt and angst........why do you think that they always portray themselves as "victims", always oppressed, and discriminated against because of their particular perversion. Their quest to be recognized as "normal" is a manifestation of all this internal "guilt and angst".........I've never met a homosexual that didn't demonstrate at least some of this behavior. Reading Nova's posts reveals the same syndrome.
The solution to their perceived issues is very simple, and has been time-tested down through the years......."keep your mouth shut about your sexual orientation".........assuming that happens, nobody will give a damn.........
I should have put that in my own post, but didn't, darn it!
Then again, libs would never for one minute believe that THEY are the ones guilty of doing such a thing. In their world only conservatives suffer from "cranial-rectal inversion!" :biggrin-new:
(Oh Mercy! Yes, I recently picked up that expression. It is not only polite, clinically correct in wording ... but also a joy to use!) ... :an:
