Has America run out of money or has hell frozen over? According to this article in the Huffington Post, the man who donated a whopping 5.9 percent of his income to charity in 2009—Barack Obama—is now doling out personal rebate checks to struggling Americans.
On more than one occasion, the president has cut personal checks to struggling Americans who’ve written to the White House, according to an excerpt from a new book by Washington Post reporter Eli Saslow about the ten letters the president reads every day.
Well at least they say that it’s Americans getting the checks, though I will wait on the evidence. I don’t think they will want to give me proof of this program, since Obama wants to keep this program hush hush, as he indicated to Saslow:
“It’s not something I should advertise, but it has happened,” the president told Saslow.
Yeah, and I once gave a vagrant a dollar, woo hoo, look at me!
What a conundrum for Obama. How does he not advertise his “benevolence,” balanced with his vainglorious need to advertise his benevolence? I can hear the private White House press briefing that day:
Yes, I will continue to push my jobs bill. But there is an issue that is important,however I don’t want any hoopla for this, uh program. Unlike my other uh…policy…initiatives, I want no transparency. It’s best that uh…we…uh keep this program away from public scrutiny. Please. You may have heard that I’m writing personal checks to people, uh…America doesn’t need to know this. I prefer that my philanthropy remain anonymous. After all, the great people are those who do their good deeds without fanfare. There is no reason for people to amplify how great they think I am. Now you were given a press release earlier about how not to break this to the American public about what I have done. I’d like to now introduce you to one of the people who received some of my stimulus money, but again…uh, I caution you that you shouldn’t use real names in reporting this story of my greatness. Andy Stern, step up here.”
Does Obama even realize that by writing personal checks to the people, he avoids the “middle-man?” Apparently Obama doesn’t trust the ability of the government to distribute his wealth better than he. Well if the HNIC doesn’t trust his own government to spend money efficiently or effectively, why should we?
If you think that the Sunday paper will have an Obama coupon in the Lifestyle section, you won’t find it. Nobody knows what it takes to get Obama to help you out. What we do know is that family can’t apply.
In 2010 American learned that Obama’s Aunt Zeituni Onyango was squatting in the United States illegally, and living off the taxpayers—apparently she didn’t qualify. As for Obama’s Uncle Omar who was arrested for DUI, there’s no paper trail that Barack came off the green to bail Omar out. Finally, Obama has a brother who lives in squalor in a hut in Kenya, and from all accounts, Obama doesn’t even send him a card for Ramadan.
Regarding others who could potentially qualify for the Barack Obama Benevolent Stimulus Fund, Obama is precluded from helping anybody who needs help paying their medical bills, because this would be contrary to ObamaCare. The same would be true for anybody who is under water on their mortgage. Obama has already funded the banks and other financial institutions already, so Obama helping people pay a mortgage would declare that program a failure.
Obama knows that there is more help needed too:
“Some of these letters you read and you say, ‘Gosh, I really want to help this person, and I may not have the tools to help them right now,'” the president told Saslow. “And then you start thinking about the fact that for every one person that wrote describing their story, there might be another hundred thousand going through the same thing. So there are times when I’m reading the letters and I feel pained that I can’t do more, faster, to make a difference in their lives.”
If only there was more MONEY we could give Obama to solve everybody’s problems, especially Obama’s problems—The Greater Depression, where Americans receive fractions of a penny on the dollar.
Here’s the wrap:
Obama is a mad social scientist. And he is beta-testing a program where he confiscates all of America’s wealth, then he doles out the funds after Americans request funds back. After all, he would know better how to give out America’s wealth than anybody else. And as we found out recently as he waved a magic wand over student loans, Obama don’t need no stinkin’ Congress.
That’s my rant!
