Colleges. A product of socialism.

Community organizers. A product of communism.

The supposed capitalist.

I read it.

I especially liked this part:


Damn people. Politics pays!


Yes it does, and people are willing to pay to hear the person that just got done running a country talk.

No matter how hard it triggers you that it was a democrat that had the job.

I just find it hilarious the libs don't see the hypocrisy of Obama getting paid $400k a speech. I personally don't have any issue with it. Free markets pay what you are worth, not what you deserve. And if a school or organization is willing to pay that much to hear him speak, then more power to him.

The issue is that Obama and sycophants spent the past 8 years basically bashing the wealthy. It is no different how fat boy Michael Moore is constantly crying about capitalism, yet it is capitalism that allows him to make the most successful documentary of all time and earn tens of millions of dollars for doing so (and which he has no problem spending that money lavishly). Or how Al Gore is supposed to be so green while flying private and living in a 10,000 square foot house.

It is typical limousine lib hypocrisy.

That is actually one of the reasons why I find it so dumbfounding that you linked us to an ICR link.

Uh... What? Colleges and universities predate Socialism by hundreds of years... Teaching and learning aren't Socialism evils, neo.


Community organizers. A product of communism.

Yep. That is capitalism. Obama charges $400k to speak and a college pays because it thinks that is a reasonable price to host him for its students. Capitalism 101.

Well that's because you are wrong. It's not that we don't see the hypocrisy. We just don't care. We aren't paying to see Obama talk. I'm willing to bet that not a single liberal posting in this thread will be seeing Obama speak at one of those colleges. All the outrage and hypocrisy is from you guys bitching up a fit just because a liberal wants to take advantage of capitalism.

No it isn't.

Capitalism is more than one speakers competing to speak.

Obama was just awarded a no bid contract at an over inflated price.

More commonly referred to as cronyism.

You don't care because it is one of your ideologues doing it. Anyone else you'd be screaming about greed, not paying fair share, etc

Do you get upset when Bush gets paid for doing the same thing? In fact, they all do it.

Way to put words in my mouth. I don't complain about anyone earning a living speaking. How about you stop pretending like you know me or liberals? Stay in your own lane.

400000 to talk to people
I can't believe people can justify that


I'm ok with people making money, even if his name is Obama. What I'm not ok with is what happens during and after each presidency. Not to pick on Obama, but his main goal was to influence our health industry while president, which has done nothing but rob the tax payers. Then afterwards he goes and works for the same people. I see it as he sold us out to make himself rich. Just like all the previous presidents.

To be fair, not sure if Bush would get 400k to speak..maybe $400 and a coupon for a lunch buffet at golden corral.

We all can't be paid shills like Obama.

Continue spreading the wealth free of charge.

AKA a non shill.
