I blame it on social engineering, not greed. Paying for pet projects you couldn't afford in the name of comfort and justice.


Well if you think greed is not a destructive force America then goodluck.

Okay peeps, about the layout of the OP.

When you post a quote and paste the information into the quote apparatus, the paragraph structure is lost.

Get off the formatting issue.

If the OP can still change it. Do this OP.

Past the email, then place [ quote ] on the beginning and [ /quote ] on the end. Without the spaces I provided inside the brackets-I did this or it would make a quote. This will leave the formatting of the original email.

Forget it, here is the source and the email-www.lvrj.com...




Rahm Emanuel cynically said, "You never want a crisis to go to waste." It is now becoming clear that the crisis he was referring to is Barack Obama's presidency.

Obama is no fool. He is not incompetent. To the contrary, he is brilliant. He knows exactly what he's doing. He is purposely overwhelming the U.S. economy to create systemic failure, economic crisis and social chaos -- thereby destroying capitalism and our country from within.Â

Barack Obama is my college classmate (Columbia University, class of '83). As Glenn Beck correctly predicted from day one, Obama is following the plan of Cloward & Piven, two professors at Columbia University. They outlined a plan to socialize America by overwhelming the system with government spending and entitlement demands. Add up the clues below. Taken individually they're alarming. Taken as a whole, it is a brilliant, Machiavellian game plan to turn the United States into a socialist/Marxist state with a permanent majority that desperately needs government for survival ... and can be counted on to always vote for bigger government. Why not? They have no responsibility to pay for it.

-- Universal health care. The health care bill had very little to do with health care. It had everything to do with unionizing millions of hospital and health care workers, as well as adding 15,000 to 20,000 new IRS agents (who will join government employee unions). Obama doesn't care that giving free health care to 30 million Americans will add trillions to the national debt. What he does care about is that it cements the dependence of those 30 million voters to Democrats and big government. Who but a socialist revolutionary would pass this reckless spending bill in the middle of a depression?

-- Cap and trade. Like health care legislation having nothing to do with health care, cap and trade has nothing to do with global warming. It has everything to do with redistribution of income, government control of the economy and a criminal payoff to Obama's biggest contributors. Those powerful and wealthy unions and contributors (like GE, which owns NBC, MSNBC and CNBC) can then be counted on to support everything Obama wants. They will kick-back hundreds of millions of dollars in contributions to Obama and the Democratic Party to keep them in power. The bonus is that all the new taxes on Americans with bigger cars, bigger homes and businesses helps Obama "spread the wealth around."

-- Make Puerto Rico a state. Why? Who's asking for a 51st state? Who's asking for millions of new welfare recipients and government entitlement addicts in the middle of a depression? Certainly not American taxpayers. But this has been Obama's plan all along. His goal is to add two new Democrat senators, five Democrat congressman and a million loyal Democratic voters who are dependent on big government.

-- Legalize 12 million illegal immigrants. Just giving these 12 million potential new citizens free health care alone could overwhelm the system and bankrupt America. But it adds 12 million reliable new Democrat voters who can be counted on to support big government. Add another few trillion dollars in welfare, aid to dependent children, food stamps, free medical, education, tax credits for the poor, and eventually Social Security.

-- Stimulus and bailouts. Where did all that money go? It went to Democrat contributors, organizations (ACORN), and unions -- including billions of dollars to save or create jobs of government employees across the country. It went to save GM and Chrysler so that their employees could keep paying union dues. It went to AIG so that Goldman Sachs could be bailed out (after giving Obama almost $1 million in contributions). A staggering $125 billion went to teachers (thereby protecting their union dues). All those public employees will vote loyally Democrat to protect their bloated salaries and pensions that are bankrupting America. The country goes broke, future generations face a bleak future, but Obama, the Democrat Party, government, and the unions grow more powerful. The ends justify the means.

-- Raise taxes on small business owners, high-income earners, and job creators. Put the entire burden on only the top 20 percent of taxpayers, redistribute the income, punish success, and reward those who did nothing to deserve it (except vote for Obama). Reagan wanted to dramatically cut taxes in order to starve the government. Obama wants to dramatically raise taxes to starve his political opposition.

With the acts outlined above, Obama and his regime have created a vast and rapidly expanding constituency of voters dependent on big government; a vast privileged class of public employees who work for big government; and a government dedicated to destroying capitalism and installing themselves as socialist rulers by overwhelming the system.

Add it up and you've got the perfect Marxist scheme -- all devised by my Columbia University college classmate Barack Obama.

Obama's ROOM MATE SPEAKS OUT. SNOPES SAYS IT IS TRUE..Email


I'll keep it brief...He was not President Obama's "roomate" he was a "classmate" at the university. How many people do you think graduated that year?

Snopes does NOT say they were "Room Mates" and they weren't. The guy is a fierce GOP supporter/Fox News Analayst etc who happened to go to the same college as the POTUS.

So why the lie in the headline from the get-go?

it doesnt take a rocket scientist to see what obama has done or any social program has done.

for me it stating the obvious.

everthing he has done and every single leftist of this country has been designed to do what it has done

bring us to the brink of annhilation.

they have run off the wealth in this country they have destoyed the wealth of this country and now their master plan has gone global.


proof of this is anytime your here global citizens, " workers of the world unite" etc.

I was a roomate of John Malkovich in college. He ate babies.

I attended the same college as John Malkovich.

One of those statements is true....

You think it doesn't matter?

To answer your question in brief....the truth matters.

You guys do realize that Snopes confirmed the auther of the article and what he wrote, and NOT as something Obama said or is planning? The way you represent this article is misleading, as it has nothing to do with Obama. This is nothing more than the guys opinion as to what Obama might be doing.

Please read the entire Snopes article before posting.

Collective amnesia runs rampant here.
Let's see...... Oh yeah.
IT WAS UNDER BUSH the economy collapesed, before Obama's election.
And the TARP program, the bailouts were introduced by Bush.
Hmmmm.
Does this mean George W Bush is a commie?
It was under his administration after all.
And before you say, "sure, blame Bush", get with the program. IT'S A FACT it happened under Bush, you cannot dispute that!
Just more Republican propaganda!

I always find it humerous the President, regardless of party, gets the blame for the economy, when in fact its congress who is responsible for dy to day operation of this country. Both parties suck, and we need to replace them with people who understand they are accountible to the people, and not the other way around.

Also, please read the snopes article, as all it does is confirm the guyh who wrote the article actually is responsible for writing it. It does not claim Obama is actually following that coure of action suggested.

Like the former Soviet Union, there is a wide spread uprising, leaving the criminals in charge and life for the country no better than it was before. The Chinese will have the only working economy and it’s based on coercion, racism, cronyism, and brutality. I don’t think any of this will happen but if it does; do the people living off the government realize they WILL have to work at whatever job the government assigns them without the ability to quit and seek other employment? It’s like being in the Military; once you are in, you can’t quit. Your choice is to complete your tour of duty or spend your tour in the brig. Happy days.

Yet Obama voted for them, too. This just proves they are both steered by the same captain.

Although I don't agree with what Obama is doing, this title seems misleading. Someone who went to the same college at the same time as Obama and might have not even talked to him is far different than someone who actually roomed with him and got to know him personally.

Flooding the U.S. Government with entitlement demands and quasi-Socialist programs hasn't made it collapse so far, so I think these guys are barking up the wrong tree.

Snopes did NOT say that the content was true. They said it was "Correctly Attributed" meaning that Mr. Root did indeed write this piece. That's it. They don't make a claim about the content being true.

Big surprise. Some dude who works for FOX thinks Obama's a very bad man. Whoa! That's NEWS!

So this essay was right all along about the Russians and Obama?

Root was at Columbia University along with Obama in 1983.

Gee whiz. A Libertarian writes an op ed about Obama claiming he's a Marxist. Surprise. He's not the first and he won't be the last.


So now people will say "I will wait for phage to answer on politics.".

So now you an expert in that area too now? lol

The content is just some person's opinion based on guesses. Why should it even be looked at?

The premise of the thread is that this person's opinion is some grand truth based on intimate knowledge of Obama. Anyone that thinks a classmate at college or university knows any more about you than a stranger passing by on the street has never been.

The only thing here to discuss is why are we supposed to be caring about this opinion piece, especially when presented as something it is so clearly not?

He was just at Columbia at the same time as Obama. They never met. I believe he is correct about Cloward and Pivan.
