First off, the NEOCON has got to stop lol i see people throwing that word around so much with on idea what its meaning is. Secondly if you think that
Obama has had to struggle his whole life you are delusional at best. The man has positioned himself and had people help position him to put him in the
situations that hes in. He isnt the "man of the people for the people" , hes a very intelligent con artist. One that has many many holes in his past
amongst other things that he has not had to answer for.
For obama to speak about him being poor and for the poor man is rediculous. here are some facts.
1) Obama’s biological father’s side: Barack Obama Sr was the son of the Chief of a prominent Luo tribe in Kenya. His father controlled all tribal
land and held power over all tribal members. The stories of a poor goat farmer, are absolute fabrications. Obama’s biological father would not only
enter Harvard as the son of a privileged Luo, upon his return to Kenya Sr. became a senior economist in the country’s Government. He died the bitter
death of an abusive alcoholic, but still the Big Man in his Tribe and entourage
From ages 0 to 2, Obama was growing up in a family of two inexperienced but economically secure, College Students.
2) From 2-6 he was with his rich grandparents.
3) From 6 - 10, with his well-off stepfather employed by Exxon Oil in Jakarta, living in elite conditions and neighborhoods designated for foreigners.
4) From age 10 to College Days, Obama lives the Tropical Life with two well off grandparents. One rich, the other idle.
5) The grandparents who raised Obama: On Obama’s mother’s side, the income was upper upper upper. Since it was they, not Ann, that sponsored most
of Obama’s education right through Occidental College, it is their income, and not the perennially absent-student mother, that impacted Obama’s
it was Stanley Armour Dunham and Madelyn Dunham that made sure since the day of his birth that Barry wouldn’t ever know want, poverty, or
Even before moving to Hawaii, Obama’s grandmother, Madelyn Dunham, was a Vice-President of a local Seattle bank. While her husband, Stanley Dunham
managed a local furniture store, the couple Obama portrays as “typical white people” from Kansas who survived the Great Depression, actually lived
in a gentrified suburb called Mercer Island, which has remained gentrified till this day .
When the couple suddenly took off for Hawaii, it wasn’t to escape poverty, but for Madelyn to pursue her banking career. In Hawaii she found her
chance to became a pioneer in the American banking world. While her grandson was only nine and living in Jakarta’s walled compounds, she became the
first female Vice President of the Bank of Hawaii.
When Barry rejoined Madelyn a year later, he had behind him four years of elite schooling in Indonesia (attending the country’s elite Catholic
school and elite Public Schools for sons and daughters of dignitaries), and he would go on to study in one of elite America’s best high-schools, and
eventually, our country’s most elite Universities.
With absolutely no material wants whatsoever, and zero hardship, a grandmother who was a top executive in America’s banking world, a grandfather
with extra time on his hands while running a local furniture store, Obama’s self-obsessed mother had the luxury of pursuing her PhD with
anthropological studies of Indonesia, while her parents bankrolled her son’s $7,000 tuition in Hawaii’s best private college preparatory
Historically one of America’s most ethnically diverse but economically homogeneous schools, today’s tuition in Punahao runs $16,675 a year per
student. If billionaire alumni like Steve Case (AOL) and Pierre Omidyar (Ebay co-founder) don’t impress you, maybe a more comprehensive read of
alumni is worth it, if only to drive home the message that anyone going to Punahao -because his grandparents could pay for it- should not lie about a
